In direct response to @spoco2's request, @lucky760 has been putting in some hours to integrate a simple Wiki with VideoSift. It's available here Wiki.videosift.com.
It's just been switched on, and might be a bit buggy to start with. The VideoSift userbase is integrated with the Wiki
If you are connected to VideoSift via Facebook or if you are logged into VideoSift with your login/password, you should automatically be logged into the Wiki. Whenever you log out of VideoSift or the Wiki, you will be logged out of both (and also logged out of Facebook if you are connected).
Help us test it out and make some edits - feel free to crib from the various VideoSift documentation pages that are scattered around VideoSift.
Thanks to Spoco2 for thinking of it - and Lucky for putting in the hours to get it up so quickly.
Quoting has never been more fun. Since comments and discussions are an important part of this site, we've reworked the way quotes are being displayed. While long back-and-forth exchanges benefit the most from this feature, even single quotations look more appealing and include a smaller version of the quoted person's avatar.
Dynamic comment loading
Loading times can be quite long for videos and talks that enjoy a healthy dose of discussion. That's why we've implemented a system that loads an initial batch of the comments and adds more to the page on request, rather than loading them all on page load. It should speed up those page loads. You still have the option to load all the comments by either clicking the corresponding link on the given page, or by disabling this new feature all together in your preferences.
Related video display
You've just watched a video and want more of the same? You don't want to scroll down past the comments to find the related videos? No problem. Once your video has finished, you'll be greeted by a presentation of related videos in its place. This feature is only available for YouTube embeds.
Preview comment posting
This feature has been requested a couple of times and we're proud to announce that it has made its way onto the sift! It is now possible to post comment from the comment popup, making it no longer necessary to leave a listing page and open another page to post a comment. Simply click the "submit new comments" link within the popup to show the comment edit box.
More comment goodness
The comment box toolbar has been extended with a "pin" button, which pins the comment box to the bottom of the screen, making it possible to read through comments while still having the edit box on screen.
The invocations in the listing above the comment box are now clickable and will insert the given invocation into to comment box on click.
The comment icon under a video's thumbnail will change depending on the number of comments it has. It'll be semi-transparent when there are no comments at all, while it'll feature an exclamation mark once a video receives 10 or more comments.
Revamped user preferences and country flags
The user preference section has been restyled to be more in touch with v4. In addition, a "country" setting has been introduced to the profile prefs. The country you choose will be represented by a small flag on your profile page.
A whole lot of small tweaks and fixes
There are alot more small changes, most of which you will discover eventually, such as
- The ability to read a video's extended info while the embed is expanded in gallery mode.
- The sift lounge has been opened for silver star members
- A new bookmark icon.
- A whole lot more social sharing options for videos.
- Faster initialization of the navigation and user menu.
- A revamped channels page.
As usual, please let us know in case you're experiencing any problems.
You are attempting to access a page from which you are forbidden. If you think there is an error on VideoSift - please let us know. Otherwise, use the navigation menu above to figure out where to go from here.
I am getting a few of these today. I don't know the pattern (saw it in video submission, posting comments, etc.). It's random. Anyone else?

We want to QA the shirts, and then we will make them available for purchase on the site. This first batch is kind of a test run- we didn't order a huge amount, so we might make the purchase available to gold stars and above first.
The t-shirt itself is silk screened and (we hope) very high quality. It's made from a design by our own Pyrex.
After this first run, we'll have a better idea of size proportions to order for the next batch. Unlike the flocked and iron-on shirts over at Cafe Press, screen printing requires shirts to be printed in a batch and not single shirts, on demand. From our research though, we've learned that screen print logos generally hold up a lot better after multiple washing.
I'm very excited about getting my mitts on it. I might just have to order 7. One for each day of the week.
