Apparently we've got a major discrepancy in how we define duplicates on the Sift, and there's a bit of a rift starting over it. Let's end this once and for all.
What constitutes a dupe? According to dictionary.com a duplicate is "a copy exactly like an original."
A vote for 1. means you agree a duplicate is "a copy exactly like an original."
A vote for 2. means you think any portion of another video is a duplicate. In other words, ten seconds of a video is a dupe of a two hour movie.
As discussed here: http://videosift.com/talk/Should-we-have-a-graphic-tag
Please do not vote without reading.
This vote is to gather a consensus on whether the current *NSFW grading system is adequate or requires modification. Some videos display graphic images of death, violence and brutality that some regard as newsworthy while others consider it unworthy of the standards of VideoSift. The same goes for videos with explicit sexual content or language. The options are as follows:
1. *establish an enumerated list of tags for NSFW. This would add to the current *NSFW tag by appending the rating, e.g., NSFW-L (language), NSFW-S (sexual content), NSFW-V (graphic violence), etc.
2. **create a system where videos are either tagged as NSFW or GRAPHIC only. NSFW would be for content deemed a bit explicit for work, but generally accepted at home with family or friends around (naughty language, mild violence). GRAPHIC would be for content too explicit for work and possibly for friends and family (sexual content, nudity, extremely graphic violence).
3. ***create a system where videos can be tagged as NSFW, GRAPHIC or both. NSFW and GRAPHIC are defined in 2 above.
4. +Or vote for no change.

These are very broad groups, but there were only five choices possible. I grouped them the best I could.
Go forth and show your democratic might!
Okay, we know who won, but the choice was really easy being that Obama and McCain are no where near being in the same ballpark. But, what if you had all of these choices? Would you still vote for Obama?
Let's see how VideoSift fares when given a larger spread for President. If all of these candidates were running right now for President, who would you vote for? And why?
