Blocked videos

I just really wanted to bring this up.

As a community we've always been fairly tight here. I've met a lot of great people in this group. As such people have been really great at helping make this site what it is today.

That being said, The amount of Blocked videos being posted seem to me at an all time high. It's really getting frustrating. I'm going to guess, every third video I try is blocked.

As a community, we have used the Blocked tag to let people know the videos have issues with them to the embed can be replaced with better embeds which aren't blocked.

But it seems like now some community members "just don't care". They don't care they are blocked and they don't care that it makes for a "broken" site. The user experience here is important to all of us, some get their best videos through this site, sharing and watching what others share.

When a person (me included) is constantly getting unviewable content, then the whole site suffers. Why should people commit time here if they can't see the videos?

Please, lets work harder to identify and fix the blocked embeds and replace them whenever possible, or post alternate embeds or links in the comments.

Cheers

So sick of hearing "Quid Pro Quo" I'm ready to pull my hair out and set myself on fire!

Is @ant too cute?

@ant, I think I've told you this once before. That's NOT venom you're injecting. Here's a tissue.

And no one is afraid of you. You're just too cute.

Prove it!

Hello.

You might be wondering how I got here. Well, I'll tell you how it happened. I was looking for places to also upload my videos, and I'm planning on making a web series on here. But the problem with my plan is I'm not allowed to "promote myself." I can't put my plan into action if I'm not allowed to upload my own videos to here. Hopefully you guys can change this so I can upload my videos. I won't be advertising on the talk page, let alone the entire community.

How do I actually post something?! (Wtf Talk)

I keep trying to submit a video but I keep getting "sorry, we couldn't verify that you're a human". I fill in the answers correctly of course, it's basic first grade math like "what is twenty-nine minus thirteen?" and when I type in "sixteen" it send me to the "see if it's a duplicate" page (it's not a duplicate), I click that it's okay to submit but I get looped back to the submit page with "sorry, we couldn't verify that you're a human". I tried numerical answers but it won't even accept those. Why am I being sent in an infinite loop?

Additional info: I just signed up today, was there a waiting period I missed in the terms and conditions that perhaps I overlooked before I'm allowed to post?

YouTube Changes to Community Guidelines Strikes (Politics Talk)

YouTube is enforcing a new "Strike System" for "Community Guidelines." It begins February 25, 2019.

Community Guidelines have been around a while, but more violations have been identified.

I realize YouTube is not our only source for videos, but I figured folks need a heads up. Deleted videos or channels on YouTube will affect the content here.

Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas

Happy happy Holidays, Merry Merry Christmas to VS!

It was fun, when I was here. I apologize for being obsessed and just getting to #1. I don't deserve it any more.
