Developers fuming over missing app comments; Google says it’s looking into it
July 31, 2011 Leave a comment
We’ve been watching what’s become a bit of a thing the past several days in the Android Market. Developers have seen a significant number of comments disappear from their app listings — hundreds, at times. And for developers, app ratings and comments are lifeblood. While we don’t think anyone would complain if the one-star trolling comments (you know who you are) would disappear, five-star comments have been caught up in the purge as well.
The "good" news, if there is any here, is that a Googler has responded to a support thread, saying:
We’re aware of this issue and working to resolve it as quickly as we can. I’ll post a follow-up message when I have additional information to share with you.
No ETA on when the comments might be restored, however, and we’ve put in word with Google, seeking a more official response.
