_____In discussions with Gwiz today I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the Sift Lounge wasn't sucked into a black hole caused by the Large Hadron Collider as I previously thought. The button simply went missing and I missed the memo. I ventured a guess at the cause of the lounge gone missing since well...people didn't really go there often. It was (is) a bit slow and unreliable (and you frequently have to refresh the whole page to avoid "locking").
_____Still I missed it a bit. It's nice to be able to chat with fellow sifters and have a place to shamelessly promote turtles having sex slowly and the like. But I digress, let me cut to the chase. I have an interesting idea for revitalizing the sift lounge. Remember that show on VH1 called "Pop Up Video"?? If you don't I've posted an example of "Smooth Criminal" below.
_____I imagined a stream of videos, playing one at a time with others waiting in a queue, that looked similar to Pop Up Videos. The big difference here would of course be that sifters would be supplying the "Pop Ups." If we played the top 15 videos in a loop for 24 hours perhaps people could upvote "pop ups" and the higher ranked pops would take priority in a specific time slot in the video. The details are still a bit fuzzy but I would love some input before I rush off to the copyright office and start my own video site *cough, or i can take 10% of the profits, cough*
_____Let me know what you think in the comments and via the votes. And for those of you who dont know what a Pop Up Video is I've provided one below:
