    It seems like comments on the Answers page is not getting rendered anymore. For example, on this page:

    upload_2019-7-12_16-14-33.png

    This seems to happen on all browsers on all Answers pages.

    I'm having the same problem. Quite annoying when some useful detail might be in the comments.

    Same here. This really needs to be fixed!
    Tried different browsers but no chance.

    I don't think that is happening yet. But it was requested by many users, to archive Answers, stop accepting new post and redirect to forum, since Answers become a mess.

    Is Unity doing anything to fix this? A large proportion of answers are useless now, because useful information is located in comments, that simply don't show up.

    Oh, fun. Why am I learning about this only half a year later and by pure chance in a random thread on the forums which I never browse on the regular, instead of such an important decision being announced to everyone by email? Would this have multiplied the negative feedback by a thousandfold? Hmm...

    Welp, so much for that...

    Jus use it as an archive. There is no point creating new posts there. It isn't maintained. And most valuable users are here on the forum, followed by discord.

    Unity's primary method of communication is through their forums. If you don't want to regularly visit the forums to catch announcements you can set it so that the forum will automatically send you an email when one is posted by going to the announcement subforum and clicking "watch forum" and selecting "email".

    Been a month, any news? It's still happening. I would expect a 12 billion dollar company to at least communicate progress when things like this happen.

    It's happening again. Additionally, the answers are not rendered properly, sometimes certain words are replaced by weird strings.

    I'm experiencing the same issue, and it's crucial that this gets resolved. I've attempted using various browsers, but unfortunately, I haven't had any luck.

    I'm seeing comments just fine. Here's a screenshot from one of the links earlier, but I'm seeing comments in new threads too so it's not just old ones that are working. I'm on Chrome.
