bleedingsnowman's Sift Talk Posts

Older videos and the Memory Well

One of the great things about the sift is running into something that you would have never found on your own. But that usually only happens to me as I scan the last couple of days. Personally, I would have never found something like this had I not tried to sift it myself.

So I was wondering if there was a possibility of some kind of "Random" button, to hash-up some of these past gems we all might have missed from so long ago. Maybe a “Nostalgia Tab.” I know you guys were looking for suggestions regarding the layout, sidebars and whatnot, and unfortunately my ideas are always a day late/dollar short.

What do you think?

The times they are a changin' (for the good, I hope)

Well, I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but it seems things have cooled down a bit on the anger/antagonism sect of videosift, primarily towards the lack of "requeue." It has effected all of our lives.

To me, this "moment of quiet" means things are starting to work in a good way.

I just wanted to post this bit of happiness to everyone who has been a part of making the whole lack of requeue work out for everyone, both objectors and executors. Beggar's corner is great, really fun too, and the PQ really helps us out because there's enough sifter's interested to check out what's hidden away in secret stashes.

So if you've got anything positive or negative to say let's have at it, because ideas and discussion make this site. I know this isn't as exciting as a siftquition or political discussion, but it would be nice to hear what's to be said after we've all had time to digest the change.


Does anyone else believe those channel are seriously over used? It seems like someone always rationalizes a way to add one of those channels to my video. Sometimes I take them down, sometimes - if it's close enough - I let it stand.

Am I just being too stringent here?

Getting sifted?!?

Do any of you sifters have some advice for me as to getting a video to the front page; i.e. time of day, day of the week, ect. I've noticed it gets harder and harder to get votes once the days start passing. I really want to get out of my probationary status so any knowledge would be really great.

Maybe my videos aren't the best, but I really want be able to get multiple videos up and to be able to down vote. Also the little "P" next to my account name is a little embarrassing.


P.S. Happy holidays!
