    When I post a video (and when I remember) I just post

    "Thanks for watching. What do you like and dislike about this video? Please let us know in these comments so we can improve future videos - Best wishes from the HuggyBoBo team."

    No reason why this can't be posted automatically by TubeBuddy when it flips the status from Private to Public so that I don't forget.

    Without this feature, TubeBuddy can't really be used to fully automate a go live schedule.

    So I went down this rabbit hole this morning and found a lot of top YouTubers ARE creating the first comment. However, it's really not a form comment. Here is what I found:

    Ask the question: "What do you like about {insert video title here}?" or "Do you want to see more videos like this?"
    Use Hashtags: I use the #Geekout hashtag a lot. I will start putting that into my comments.
    Emoji: Yes, a smiley face is nice
    Give Someone Else Time for 1st Comment: Starting the thread is nice, but if a post is organic, let it build. I would put the first comment down in 24 hours.

    Also remember to Reply to all your comments. A thumbs up and comment back is better than you putting out the first comment.

    Hey,
    so i think it would be a pretty neat feature to be able to "schedule" comments on publishing a video.

    You cant add comments while videos are not published yet, which in my opinion pretty much "sucks" (sry for the language).
    Often you want to be the first one to comment on your own video something like : "PLZ GIVE ME 10 TRILLION LIKES" .... jk, but i think you know what im trying to say, getting the viewers more involved etc... Sometimes though, you dont have time when the video goes live, to be one of the first ones to comment and pin it.
    So it would be pretty cool if you could add something like an "Initially Pinned Comment" Textbox to the "Edit" or "Upload" screen, to get more interaction from the viewers :)

    Hope i could kinda explain what i mean, if there is anything like that already, sry i havent found anything like that :D

    Thanks!

    :O Your language, sir! How could you?!
    Haha, I'm only kidding, "sucks" (IMO) isn't that bad ;)

    I agree with this idea. I most often schedule my videos in advance, and when live streams are finished and processing, you can't go to the video and post a comment either. It would be great to be able to schedule a comment, and maybe pin it as well!

    I have seen this suggestion a few times on the forums, so I am going to sticky this post! Maybe it will gain more traction :D

    Yeah - I actually have this like 80% complete (Because I wanted it built for our own videos) but then got sidetracked on other stuff. So if time allows, I might be able to get to this next week.

    Yes, please! Do this. I keep forgetting especially when I'm responsible and get the video uploaded way ahead of the publishing date. :(

    I give this a +1 as well

    Posting that initial comment would be great

    Configuring a new highlighted comment in advance would also be great

    Hey, i know its already a sticky thread and all, but this is now nearly 9 month old.
    I still need this feature badly, because if im running just a few minutes late for my initial Comment, many of the active viewers (and those are the important ones) dont see the comment, because they are too fast for me :D
    Is there any update on this feature?
    Thanks!
