Oritteropo hits galaxy

It's been a while since we've had a Galaxy. 2,000 videos is not an easy goal - I'll probably never get there, and amazed at the dedication for those who do. I'm really happy to award this Galaxy badge to someone I've actually met in the flesh! Persephone and I met Oritteropo at a Melbourne SiftUp back in 2011. (Jeez, has it been that long?) It was a great time, and I found our @Orittoropo to be a charming, brainy guy.

As is our custom here, we've had a special badge designed for Oritteropo by our dedicated resident illustrator Chris Murphy. And of course, I've penned a, er, "special" song in Oritteropo's honour. Here's to my fellow antipodean Oritteropo, congrats on the Galaxy and thanks for your amazing dedication to the VideoSift community.

YouTube Playlist Analyzer (Geek Talk)

http://youtube-playlist-analyzer.appspot.com/ from https://www.reddit.com/r/math/comments/4r9dkm/is_there_a_good_online_calculator_to_add_total/d4zb2te :

"YouTube Playlist Analyzer uses YouTube Data API to analyze any youtube playlist or channel, and display the related information graphically. It supports 3 modes of data representations (or views): Playlist View, Timeline View and Table View. Use this tool to find out things like follows:

Total Duration of a playlist?
Compare video durations in a playlist/channel.
What is the trend of views, likes, dislikes or comments on videos of a channel/playlist?
Details of each video item - title, channel title, duration, counts, publishing time, short description, video link."

Its total playlist times could be useful for YouTube's video playlist submissions, @dag and @lucky760!

Ima Llama

I've been a mostly silent, but active, member here for 9+ years...and yet i know (of) many of you. Almost daily, I upvote a number of vids and seethe over Siftbot's denials of my rare downvotes and privileged requests. Seeing Oritteropo's Galaxy status, I am reminded that I need to bump up my own profile here. Thus, I have decided to peep in the forums, so for my first trick, I'll feign ignorance and ask all of you what is the best way to get integral here.

I mean to say, that I love this community and have found it quite valuable for a number of reasons. The ebb and flow suits me and has become my go-to site for any number of moods I may be in. I just want to find a way to finally give back in a small way.

And a shout out to ant, as he was my introduction to this site via Blues News.

ps- I would like to earn my first star before I hit 10 years, you know.

What's the point of not being able to dead an unsifted video

@lucky760 and @dag I'm pretty sure this has been brought up before. I don't understand why we are not able to dead a video that is unsifted? If there is a reason i'd be interested to know it. IMO seeing a dead video on the front page and no way of removing it is just annoying, poor form and bad for the site.

and while i'm at it another thing that has been brought up before...

In the new layout once you are in a channel (ex: http://videosift.com/cinema/) there is no easy way to get back to the full site. In the previous version* you clicked on the sift logo in the upper left corner to return to the full site. Not so in the new version. Another sifter brought this to my attention and asked if there was a way that he wasn't aware of. All i could see doing is changing the url or going to a non new page version like comments then clicking on the logo. IMO that's seems broken and not something purposely done. Although if it was a purposeful change id be interested to know why.

*If you would rather use the old VideoSift version you can go to the bottom of any new videosift version page and at the bottom click 'beta opt out'.

End of harassing @lucky760 (for now). You know i love you

Voting re(load/fresh)es VS' web page? (Geek Talk)

Is anyone else getting that today on some VS pages like http://videosift.com/video/Takes-A-Well-Armed-Citizen-To-Protect-Themselves-Loved-Ones and http://videosift.com/video/Bill-Maher-Is-Donald-Trump-a-Con-Man ? VS never did that before today.

I was using the same old SeaMonkey v2.39 web browser. If it is reproducable by others, then this is annoying since I usually vote before finishing the videos! Also, http://videosift.com/video/Flaming-Candle-SeeSaw did not have this problem. Weird?

Thank you in advance.

VideoSift is 10 (Fire Talk)

They said we wouldn't make it ... OK, no one really said we wouldn't make it (except maybe me a few times) ... but we made it!

This is our 10th Siftiversary. I'm still having trouble digesting what that means. VideoSift has been such a major part of my life for the past 10 years that it's hard for me to imagine that there was a Pre-VS time. Not only has VideoSift given me an outlet for my own ideas, it's taught me how a community works and what it means to work in a team - a big team spread around the Earth.
... more inside ...
