I think we should focus on the problem here, not start describing the code of a solution.
"That is because commenters don't return to videos and that is a problem."
I think a great first step, because it is someone people have wanted for quite some time would be to add email notification when someone replies in a discussion that you participated in (on both videos and forum threads). For people interested in the video who haven't commented, we just let them sign up to be notified about that particular discussion as well.
We could allow you to view your notifications as a stream of news on the site as well as via email, which would give you a great place to check up on conversations you are interested in.
+1. Vote this request up on Connect, Niners: https://connect.microsoft.com/site1133/feedback/details/579455/add-email-notifications-for-comments-and-forum-threads
Every vote counts, especially given the number of votes we typically get -> absolute number of votes is used in the determination of importance; of deciding whether or not Duncan and his team will implement it. We didn't just open a Connect site to make it appear that we care what you think. Rather, it gives us a way to measure it. As always, you have the power. We just have an easier way to understand what you want and need to get the most out what Channel 9 offers you and to what you offer Channel 9, the most important side effect of all of us using Channel 9.
Keep on voting,
