FYI. YouTube is having technical problems. (Wtf Talk)

So, embedded YouTube's videos and logged in https://www.youtube.com/feed/subscriptions?flow=2 are currently showing:

"500 Internal Server Error

Sorry, something went wrong.

A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.
If you see them, send them this information as text (screenshots frighten them): ..."

and "Sorry - there’s a temporary issue loading your subscriptions. Please revisit this page shortly to try again."


http://reddit.com/r/youtube, http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/youtube, etc. confirm it.

At least we still have other video hosts like vimeo.com. I wonder how much I missed since before 1 PM PDT.

So, we are fucked. (Science Talk)

Holding global warming to a critical limit would require "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society."

Based on the report, we are absolutely going to hit the critical limit now. No stopping it. The best we could do, literally the best, is to prevent from going too far above it.

So, we are definitively fucked. Now we just get to compete for how bad it is going to get by the end.

YouTube playlists bugs with its URL and *findthumb on VS? (Wtf Talk)

For an example with my newly submitted YouTube video in https://videosift.com/video/Animaniacs-Chicken-Boo-Segments:

1. Even though VS made an embed code with my copied and pasted http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMZYxQGS-jB8aQ_A72FYCpd9nDZAc20sz URL, it didn't show the embedded video. So I had to use YouTube's shared embed code to make it show up correctly in VS.

2. *findthumb doesn't find any thumbnails as Siftbot says.

Happy 12th Siftiversary

Well, @dag... @siftbot... We've made it to a dozen years. Congratulations to us!

Internet culture has changed in the past dozen years, but it's nice to see that no matter how much things around us may change, the people of the Sift are as awesome as they ever were.

You. Complete. We.

Hi guys! What'd I miss? (Scifi Talk)

Hello one and all. Firefly here, I used to (still do?) run the Sci-Fi channel when I was a regular, Just want to pop in and say hi....man it's been a while. I see dag and lucky still have things running smoothly. Site's really looking spiffy! I see ant still posting like crazy, Any other regulars still around? eric, eklek, kronos, zifnab, arvana, dotdude...those are the few I remember off the top of my head, and I see some new faces as well.

Gonna look around a bit, see if I still remember how to post.

Can't see channels

I can't see the channel descriptions a video is part of in the regular video listings anymore. I remember them being to the left of the video under the vote counter. Not sure if I'm the only one. Not a big deal or anything just was kind of handy.

Wrong video in "promoted" slot?

I'm getting a bug where the promoted video title/description don't match the video. Often it's still the last promoted video I watched, but with a newer promoted video's title and description. Am I the only one? I started noticing it a week or two ago. Refresh always fixes it.
