I see an unpopular video that I submitted and want to dump. I don't see that option. How do I do that? Also, the text has an asterisk for a note. I don't see it.
Thank you in advance.
I've been a daily visitor there for the past few months, and recently asked creator Thomas Marban to include VideoSift in the list. (We're down towards the bottom, above the comics).
So the way we thought we would do it, is to places some tick-boxes on the submit page for different categories. I call them "Psuedo" categories because they are not ghettoizing the video to any specific page. All videos designated as belonging to a particular category will still be viewable on the standard main page, however as was suggested in a thread here, we'd also like to create special areas like "music.videosift.com" for people to view just music videos. All votes from these pages will count just the same, and music videos, for example, may be viewed from the music.videosift.com subdomain, or mixed in with the other videos on the main site.
Here are the categories we are considering, but definitely wanted to open this up to suggetsion:
Other potential ones up that I thought up, but I'm not sure about:
Potentially Videos could be members of multiple categories. For example, a Daily Show clip might be in the Daily Show category as well as the Politics category.
Beyond categories, we'd also like to include an "NSFW" flagging system. NSFW content could be flagged on submission, or flagged by a gold star by "*NSFW". By default NSFW content would be sifted in for logged on members, but you would have the ability to sift it out with an option in your profile. Not logged on visitors would have NSFW content sifted out be default.
NSFW filtering would happen on the front page, queue, top videos, top 15 and search results. If someone navigates directly to an NSFW video (from an off-site link for example) the video will be viewable, but with a warning that it is NSFW.
As with Ender's VideoSift.pl VideoSift Latina will be a mix of videos from Videosift.com and content specifically aimed at a Spanish speaking audience.
Thanks very much Horsujet for all of your work getting the site ready.
