Youtube Poll - 11.21.06
Should we ban YouTube posts once and for all?
no bans possible here. (only potential countermeasure: awesomer non-u2b posts.) just let it go.
i agree with progosk. theres been sweet and non sweet shit from you tube and from everywhere. why everybody gotta be such a hater? let us make efforts to find better quality but let us not disregard work that is worth judging and appreciating.
who votes we ban vhs.
cant miss tubeonly gems, like last months subtle vid from SSSR, youtube looked uninviting but was a beaut
hopefully google will sort that swinetube out soon, in the meantime can i recommend beer googles to gaussian blur away the horrible compression.
youtube is awesome. But any courteous poster should scour for a quicktime.
i would vote to ban windows media and real player, though.
I think a good suggestion is to, like with say current vids (Subtle, Gwen Stefani): wait until the QT comes out, because for those especially you know one will appear pretty quickly. And then we can all judge it (hoom hrum!) better the first time around, and don't have to trawl backwards thru antville.
YouTube is fine. I do agree we need more other video formats to share. I hate streaming videos though!!
YOUTUBE suk fat wang. QT hung dong.
U know dat Dolly Parton song
D. I. V. O. R. C. E..
Well u2b is S.H.I.T
I jus' got flamed by a moderator over on another site fe givin a guy a broadside for his crap u2b upload. He slung down the gauntlet for me to find a better file, n' oh yes I found a better Rez! So he threw all his toys outta the pram n started bitchin' abuse at mi 'bout how ungrateful I woz, blah de blah
Sorry a sows ear is a sows ear U wouldn't accept such quality on TV much less record it on ur VCR
I've no time for Mr 'outta my way I'm a very important person' weather its on the road coz he's in a 4x4 n' I'm on a byke
Or or the very same fella in the guise ov Mr 'any crap rez will do, coz the clip/band is jus' soooo brill' n' I hav'fe cram fe mi exams'
I do realise sumtimes, that there is no other format available, but come on! U only have to look at the number ov u2b postings ov late!
Hardly the rare cult footage ov some long dead star who woz only captured once in that fleeting moment by sum passing itinerant camera crew on a mission, covering sum other event!
My objection to u2b PPl become lazy, they don't wanna spend the time hunting Its too convenient to post u2b links without making any f'kin' effort in the web leg work to find the code in a better rez format!
I don't really care about You Tube or no You Tube, but could we at least write in English please.
a mite out o' touch, the commish...
You're right about the laziness thing Robo. It's not the compression quality that gets me so much tho' as the often lower interest value of U2B postings. Laziness in searching out a decent quality of compression = laziness in searching out a decent quality of creative thought.... hence all the old stuff, reposts and crap.
Am I right in saying that a disproportionate slice of the U2B postings are from fans, promoters and newbies? (Sorry to the folks who post the quality U2B stuff)
It's pretty undemocratic to ban them, but if the volume increases much more, we might as well change the site's strap-line to 'Sign up and pepper the reams of generic U2B shit with links to cool music videos.'
gordan: robo speak ;-)
'an urban a mix ov English, Irish, Scots, Jamaican patwa (patois), slang and text speak (chav) n' anything else that take me fancy but I round it down somewhat to avoid confusion'
Interesting to see the results on this one. I thought more people were anti-tube on this site. In the end, I find myself agreeing with Prog- overly-regulating the content of this site will make it stiff and boring.
links to utups are okay, sometimes there are no better links to find, but I hate these directly embedded posts.
I see the point
This community regulates itself with the ease ov a traffic roundabout, so theres a bump or two, or a dented fender now n' again, well thats life!
Howeva it won't stop mi sayin' the majority ov u2b posts could do, shall we say, with slightly more effort in content and rez quality wen uploading to the mothership!
Like such effort n quality as can be seen in the 'Fast as u can' post Acceptable at 9mb and better than my 40mb rip
What we need is some way to "rate" posts (not so much the post, as the video in it).
That way we could clearly mark very low quality videos (and hide them from the main page if needed), and notice nice videos that we might have missed.
It would also simplify making a best of... each month ;)
But of course, that's just happy thinking, because that would mean that someone should add those features to the site :(
What we need is some way to "rate" posts
I think comments are better than rating. If you get used to the 'ville, you know who are the user you can trust, and whose tastes accord with yours. Rating, instead, would be too easy to exploit, because you can't tell who voted what.
We just need I should submit more comments
like rating music videos? this's the place for you. great selection, hi quality downloads, precise voting.
community? next to none.
dek nailed it.
Yeah, I agree that votes without comments and a community don't interest me. However one isn't against the other...
I guess that dek is right, though. What I really miss here sometimes is not votes, but more comments. Too many posts with 0-1 comments.
But I'm not complaining, I should also post more often...
