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. |

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.

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.

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.
