A little about me...
I joined VideoSift as IT Director / Software Architect / Systems Administrator in mid-2006. It has been my online home away from home ever since.

In 2006 I coined the acronym LMFAHS. You should tag all your funny videos with it. LMFAHS in meatspace.

In 2008 I coined the term Escalopter to describe a person rotating like a helicopter blade on escalator handrails. |

Sorry for all the questions ...

Apparently I'm not privileged enough to double promote, however nowhere on the star power page does it mention double promote. Do you know what level this is? Thanks

I've noticed something odd happening on my profile page. The 'last power points used' line has stopped reacting, actually it still says Dec 8, 2014, even though I use power points almost daily. Not important, but it is odd.

Sorry to bug you again ...

Don't know if this is just me or not ... with the new permalink page, when viewing one that has a dead video (such as this example) I just get a big blank grey screen where the video should be, which makes me think maybe the page isn't loading properly or something. If I opt out of the beta, then I see the YouTube player window and if I press play I get the message "this video does not exist".

Is there anyway with the beta version to better convey that you're seeing a dead video and not a possible browser error?

Thanks Keep up the good work!!

Truly it was quite a coincidence. I just happened to see it on late night and watched the last 1 1/2 hours of it the last time several weeks back.

No, I've seen it probably 4 times. Great movie.

For real? What a coincidence!

Was it for the first time ever?

I haven't seen it in probably a dozen years at least.

a couple of quirks I've just found with the new permalink page ...

when searching for something (hover over watch, hover over search, wait for advanced search window to open), if I want to paste using mouse commands, I right click to open the mouse menu, but then when I move down to select "paste" the search window disappears.

secondly, if I have a permalink page open in a browser window on my second monitor (extended desktop), if while playing the video I click the icon to make it full screen, it opens on my primary monitor, not my second one.

Had a question that I wanted to ask before, that I never got round to before I dinged silver, but still could potentially confuse new and/or bronze people.

On this page, just below the new badges, in the "Other Changes" section, 3rd bullet point, Dag mentions that now Bronze Stars can submit videos from any source. However on this page, under Silver Star Member, it says can submit flash video from any source.

My query therefore is, is it Bronze or Silver that grants you this privilege?

I would like to mirror eric3579 and enoch in their comments and sentiments adding only my admiration and respect for the depth and breadth of the patience you have and continue to exhibit amidst the vastness of such a project that can only partially be explained by the intelligence and artfulness that is reflected in the work product.

Much thanks.

Congratulations! Your dedication to keeping VideoSift clear of baddies has earned you your "Ban Police" Level 51 Badge!

enoch says...

i am so thoroughly impressed and in a state of awe just how much you are accomplishing and with such precision and efficiency.

bravo my friend.
your talents are much appreciated.

i think i see what you are trying to create,though my limited understandings are a hindrance:a stylized and sleek user interface which is easy to use for the new visitor,uncluttered,yet still sexy.

all this while balancing the desires of long time users who have helped build this community.

no easy task my friend,but your recent attentions have proven spectacular in the face of those challenges.

i salute you my friend.
well done!

Ill leave this here instead of cluttering the thread, but just wanted to say EXCELLENT fix One of my favorites so far for multiple reasons. Size and placement is right on. Also channels is a nice splash of color. Appeals to my eyes and improvement not only usability but visually more appealing imo.

lucky760 said:

I've added tags and channels back in.

I've had trouble trying to find a way to reinsert them in a subtle way that won't clutter the place up but will still be easily accessible.

After contemplating lots of options what I came up with was just putting them below the byline but minimally, with smaller text and semi-transparent until you hover over the video's meta info box.

Thoughts on my solution and other possible, possibly better solutions requested.
