TheSluiceGate's Sift Talk Posts

My band (as per sifted video) is up for a national award!

Hi fellow Sifters!,

My small independent band released an EP last year in Ireland, and somehow it's ended up being nominated for a Meteor Choice Music Prize for Song of the Year up against relative giants such as the likes of Glen Hansard (of the "Once" movie and The Swell Season fame).

The award is decided by public vote. So, any chance of a few votes in a national arts awards poll for a fellow sifter?

Have a listen to a "radio edit" here (as sifted by oritteropo):

And if you like, please give us a nod in the public vote at:

Thanks guys

Posting easy bet videos from Reddit's front page

Hi all,
Just something I've noticed in the last few moths since I got involved in Reddit, videos that are front paged there are easy bets for going top 15 on videosift. Frequently with the same or similar title to that used on Reddit.

I have really mixed feelings about this. Is there a way that the videosift points system could reward posters of videos that were not plucked from there? A way that real rare undiscovered gems could be rewarded above these? I've passed up on at least 5 in the last week that I knew would go top 15 here easily. About 12 hours ago here in Ireland that video of the little Asian girl percussionist was front page on reddit. 7 hous ago it was on videosift with a very similar title to the reddit one.

What does anytone think about this? I'm just afraid of videosift becoming (more than ever) a race to get there first, rather than worrying about quality, it becomes a who-can-post-videos-from-Reddit-first machine.
