Okay, it can't just be me who thinks this.
Compilation Videos are a Scourge.
1). They don't contribute anything.
2). They are mostly made up of Duplicated videos - Something we work so hard to eliminate.
3). They can't searched - if you see a clip in a Comp. you'll never be able to find it again to see it - thus each clip is lost/buried/invisible.
4). Makes Duping Complicated - If I post a clip that's been included in a Comp., does it become a Dupe????? Just by nature, since most of their content is already posted, they in themselfs, are mostly made up of Dupes.
5). Keywords - There is no possible way to adequately Keyword a Compilation.
6). Thumbnails. They can't possibly have a thumbnail that describes the content, and often have misleading thumbnails, like girls in bikinis.
Compilations on YouTube are a lazy man's playlist. They hold no real merit on their own other than to garnish YouTube Ad hits by stealing content from other people.
I think they do a disservice to VideoSift as they do the opposite of what this site attempts to do. We are supposed to be sifting through all the crap and presenting and voting on each individual video to make it easier for people to find. Compilations, just screw it all up.
My opinion is we shouldn't be posting them.
