Hello, I have tried to think for a creative way to pin an attractive comment (mines of course) it sounds like this: "I will pin the most creative or funny comment 48h after posting this video, this is your chance for your comment to become viral so why shouldn't you give it a go?"
Am I breaking any Youtube rules? Any thoughts? Thank you:)

Hmm, interesting question. Not sure about the rules breaking part. But I'm curious why wait 48 hours to pin a comment? I, personally, would do it within the first few hours but that's just my thought.

Hm, I would keep this comment pinned for 48h untill I will choose a winner....I presumed it's clear enough...maybe we can brainstorm another more professional look of my idea here...

So my quoted comment will be pinned for 48h and then unpinned in favour to the winning comment if it makes sense

Oh, I see. I guess from my perspective ""I will pin the most creative or funny comment 48h after posting this video," sounds like you'll pin it after 48 hours. But if it said "I will pin the most creative or funny comment for 48h after posting this video," then it would have made more sense to me. But I see what you meant. I actually like that idea.

It could easily be seen as a way to abuse metrics within YouTube, which is against TOS, so I would advise against it.

It sounds somewhat similar to Youtubers who say that they'll do a certain thing if the video hits 100 likes or comments, etc. :thinking:
