My highly sophisticated vote recovery plan (Blog Post)

I'm plowing through all the sifted videos from newest to oldest, and upvoting all the ones I know that I voted for.  I'm on page 56 right now (which has taken me about an hour, because I had to view a few seconds of some videos to make sure I was voting for the correct ones), out of 3420 pages of sifted videos.  Almost 2% there!  Memory is fragile, and mine's no exception, so expect me to screw up by overlooking some of your videos that you know I voted for.  Please don't take it personally if I miss one or even several of your videos. I'm just going to do my best.

Going from newest to oldest (or oldest to newest) is the only way I can think of to spread the votes around fairly.  I hope to do at least 25 pages a day, with 50 to 100 pages of videos per day being my goal, which means it could take anywhere from one to four months to go through them all.  And of course new videos will be continually added, so in actuality it will take longer. Oh well.

I will try to keep up on new submissions too, and I will also venture into PQs from time to time. However the thrust of my attack will still be to go from newest to oldest of the sifted videos. Maybe dag and/or lucky will figure out a way to recover votes soon so we won't have to do all of this. But I'm going to do this in the mean time, in case they can't figure it out.

Patience, grasshoppers.

In 'N Out (and not the fun kind) (Blog Post)

You may have noticed over the past several months that my attendance at my online home (here, of course) has been off and on, i.e., I’ll pop in for several days, then pop out for several days, and so on. Well I just want to let you all know that I’ve been busy with work a lot these days, thus limiting my free time. When I do have free time I’m doing my best to spend as much of it with my son, because he is the most important thing in my life.  So if it comes down to playing around at VS or spending my time with son, it’s no contest, really.

I’ve been kind of grouchy off and on too, and when that happens I don’t want to come here and be an asshole to people.  I’d rather stay away than be pissy. This place has had enough drama lately, so I don’t want to make things worse.

Anyway I’m just sharing with all of you because I don’t want anyone to think I’m mad at VS in general or anyone here in particular.  VideoSift not only aggregates some of the best videos on the internet, but also some of the best people.  It’s a pleasure to know so many of you.  I’m proud to play my small part in making this place what it is, so I don’t want anyone to think I’ve got it in for VS these days. I’ve just got other shit going on, that’s all.

So as I’ve already told several of you, you’ll see me when you see me. And I mean that in a good way.

EDIT: My "appearance" in the Sift Lounge as idle for the past few weeks is an error.  I even proved it to schmawy by telling him to see if I was logged in by cross-checking the 'Current Users' list on the Sift Talk page.  Like I said, it's a big error. I'm not a loser like blankfist, I swear.

Because I think I know how all of you see me... (Blog Post)


Brother Choggie seems to believe that I received 90 votes for this recent video because, he suggests, I’m an ass-kisser.  As flattering as those words are (smooch smooch), I believe people really vote for me because they enjoy my tales of suffering, shame, humiliation, degradation, insecurity, inadequacy, and general stupidity.  These sad mini-confessionals make you feel better about yourselves, at my expense.  In other words I believe these are pity votes.  Not as good as pity sex, mind you, but I’ll take what I can get. I imagine your thought processes go something like this:

Oh God, kp just submitted another pathetic video?!  Why does he do this to us?!  Oh well, the poor schmuck really has nothing else going for him, so I guess I’ll upvote it anyway.  It’s the least I can do for a sifter with a little dick.

So who’s right, fellow sifters and sifterettes, Choggie or I?  If I’m right then signify by upvoting everything in my queue, and if Choggie’s right then signify by upvoting everything in my queue.  You’re supposed to pity me, remember?
