Could we have a sort by oldest/newest in the comment advanced filter?

Oldest to Newest: We try to answer everyone, but as soon as we answer one person 5 more comments come in. The older comments are never thanked because we are just answering the newest comments.

Thumbs up: When someone gets a lot of thumbs up a lot of times they are requesting a video. It would be nice to filter by number of thumbs up so we can address those first, make a video on the topic, etc. The comments tend to rise to the top where everyone reads the comment, but we don't always see the thread. Maybe the thumbs up could go in Started by dropdown box.

I like these ideas and will send these forward! :D

As far as sorting - it feels like it might be fairly complex but possible. One limitation is that we could only sort comments that are displayed on screen. So if there are 20 comments listed, we could only sort those 20 and not pull older videos.

Sorting by thumbs up would be similar. Complex but possible and only available for what is displayed on screen. We couldn't go find old comments not listed and sort those.

The complex part is that we'd have to completely re-arrange YouTube's listing and there is potential that could mess things up. But worth a try. I'm adding to our future improvements document.
