Top Badge Achievers Should be 20 Deep

Rather than honor 20 Sifters for their dedication, we should acknowledge 40 Sifters.

Because our ranks have swelled, I propose we double the number of Sifters eligible for Top Badge recognition.

Rather than rate the top 20, we'll honor the top 40, and nothing else will change.

Should VideoSift Allow Full-Length Movies?

The current VidoeSift policy is to not allow full-length movies, television shows, etc. But this rule has never been overly enforced. And besides, copyright infringement laws are as unenforceable as the war on drugs. Should we allow members to embed links to full-length movies, television shows, etc.? A recent appellate court ruled that embedded videos aren't copyright infringement. What say the masses?

Videosifit is one of the best websites I've ever seen. But sometimes the intimacy amongst us, which is essential to community, unravels. It's the recipe for it's own undoing.
Some of you remember when I was almost banned for some sort of nonsense. I was the new kid in school, and the controversy that followed cost some members to disengage or just abondon interaction. I wholeheartedly believe this extremism is wrong. I'm willing to risk a personal ban to prove a point.
I believe more unique voices add, rather than detract, what makes videosift so awesome. In other words, I believe that convicted felons can still contribute to society. Exile is too extreme of a punishment for members who've contributed so much.
I don't know exactly what blankfist did. I don't really care. He and choggie are both assholes. But I like them. And each one of them has made videosift better--specifically with video submissions, which is the most essential aspect of videosift, in my opinion.
Therefore, I propose we deal with this issue more effectively. It's not going to be smooth or easy. It may not work. But I think we should try for the sake of us all. Perhaps we could limit their interaction video submissions, only? I don't know. But something isn't right. Let the voices be heard. Be warned. Alea iacta est, the die is cast.

Should music videos integrate uniformity in their titles?

VideoSift has accumulated a lot music videos (check the hip hop channel). I think the titles should have a uniform standard. As is, the titles vary from sifter to sifter--some use a dash between the artist(s) and song title, others use a colon and even a few have quotation marks. Should we have a standard, or not?

Should Brief Videos Be Considered Three Minutes or Less In Duration?

I propose that the brief tab be expanded to include all three-minutes-or-less-videos.
