Sorry if this has been brought up before, but there seems to be some confusion regarding tagging submitted videos as belonging to the Give Away Your TV collective. Perhaps it's because of the new Videosift 3.0 abbreviation for it, which merely appears as "Gay."
This seems to be misleading to some - especially with newer sifters - who interpret the tag as a video that contains gay-related (homosexual) content. This is not to say that gay content shouldn't be appearing in the GAYTV channel - I have no doubt there exist videos that address both areas somewhere on the intarwebs... Rather, my concern is that the GAYTV channel is being transformed into something that it was not intended to be.
The Give Away Your TV collective describes itself thusly:
"Your home for alternative media. Share and watch videos falling outside the mainstreams of corporate media communication. Free yourself from the shackles of television. So go ahead and do it! Give Away Your TV!"
If you go to http://gay.videosift.com/
though, the majority of the videos on the front page (wait, is it all of them?) are gay-related. Which is not what the original collective (pre-3.0) was associated with... it mostly involved videos that denounced television as a whole or were clips that were never aired in TV or movie form (i.e. web-native videos).
Did the GAYTV collective shift entirely to actual gay-related material, and the old description just not updated? Please disregard me if I missed the memo on that one. I understand that the new ability to add videos under a collective without having to be a member of the collective (which I love) probably is the root cause of this, mostly because the abbreviation of the channel to "gay" in the submission form is misleading.
However, given how many things are getting submitted incorrectly, it may be a fairly good idea to start a real gay-related collective...
