NOTE: You must be a logged-in member to do any of the tasks mentioned below.
On each comment page, there is a light-blue box in the middle of the page titled "Post a comment." Enter your comment in the text box, and when satisfied, click the "Post it!" button.
Your account's "home" page will show the latest comments you've made, and on which topics those comments fall. You can reach your home page by clicking the "My Home" link at the top-right of each page (when logged in).
This is not possible, unfortunately, due to technological restraints. YouTube will not support the exponential increase in videos that such a feature would introduce.
Of course! We want to facilitate an active discussion, so feel free to leave as many comments on as many topics as you like.
You can easily rate signs when logged in. Once on a sign's page, you simply click the appropriate star in its rating display to save your own rating. You can also rate a sign directly if it is the highest-rated sign on a topic's page.
You can rate a sign as many times as you like, but only one will "stick." This allows you to change your mind about how you want to rate a sign, but prevents you from racking up multiple "votes" and skewing its overall rating.
