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. |

I read and appreciate them, I always like to learn more, but would gladly see them go if it means keeping the game alive.

Thanks - worst-case I will just fill it with phrases but provide no extra info (which shows up once you've finished the puzzle), like background info, explanation, link, image, video.

Those are the bits that take the longest. Each phrase can become like a tiny research project. And I don't even know if it's worthwhile. No clue if people read those let alone appreciate them. 😀

newtboy says...

I wondered how you automated choosing phrases….I guess you didn’t, that’s how! I suppose another thanks is in order then, one for creating it, another for keeping it going! Double thanks!
Yeah, I probably play 5 a week on average. The short ones get hard!

I hope you can figure out a way to automate it completely, or at least to the point where you just need to authorize it’s choices once a week. I would hate you to burn out and for it to die.

You're still playing it?!

Awesome my friend. Thanks so much for the feedback!

It's become a bit of a burden because I still manually create every puzzle, so every night near midnight I start frantically trying to get the next puzzle ready.

Congratulations! Your comment on North Koreans weeping hysterically over death of Kim Jong-il has just received enough votes from the community to earn you 1 Power Point. Thank you for your quality contribution to VideoSift.

No worries, just reporting the bug.

Oh man, that's a bummer.

Thanks for letting me know. Not sure if I'll have time to try digging into that, especially because I don't have any iOS devices.

Unsure what happened, but after my iPad updated the os last weekend, it seems embeds in comments no longer work. I just see a blank space, even for the one I just posted from YouTube.
Thought you might want to know.
Same thing for videos ant posted from bluesnews. Just empty space…both when opted in and opted out of “beta”

Happy anniversary! Today marks year number 16 since you first became a Sifter and the community is better for having you. Thanks for your contributions!

newtboy says...

I feel like, if integrated here, this could drive traffic to the sift. Not sure if that’s your plan or wish, just a thought.
Also, copyright it now!!! Wordle sold for “low seven figures” to the New York Times.
