Originally posted by shaktheback^^ That would be a long process, and like you're saying, some people may not want their videos to be put on the board like that. I was thinking about it, and wondered, what if let's say we chose a vid at random, right? We PM the maker, and ask if they mind having their VM in the spotlight like that. If they do, we choose another VM, if they don't then we go with that? It'd be less troublesome then the voting I think.
Yes, voting is a very long process. How about a seperate thread or Exhibitions thread where people can mention that VM can be reviewed from which videos can be picked up?
But that way again, people may pick VMs that the makers don't want reviewed? And I personally feel that the videos reviewed should not be picked by everyone like that, because then they'd pick the popular ones, and others may be sidelined. If a select group were to choose the VMs, then each VM maker would have the opportunity to have their VM reviewed. I think that would be fairer, actually. But that's my personal opinion. We'll have to ask Ambrosia.
Yea, very much. We will have people to pick videos with the view that vidders are not sidelined. I believe that the DT for this forum will be appointed soon, hence the DT can carry on with choosing the VM's.
Yupyup, that was what I was thinking. So we'll have to wait till the DT is implemented, unless Ambrosia thinks it's alright for us to begin first? Then the DT can take over once they're introduced?
And I was thinking, is there a rule for VM makers to credit tutorials? Because maybe we should implement that, like how the Avatar/Signature section has a rule to credit where brushes and tutorials are downloaded from. We should ask VM makers to mention where they got colouring tips and textures from, where the VM is posted? For example, let's say I use a tutorial I get from YT, and I make a video. When I post that video in my gallery, on the page that the vid is posted, I mention that I got this tutorial, the colouring from a certain YT user. That way credit is given?
And to make sure people don't take credit for other people's work. Maintain that honesty? Just a thought, because I know I'd do that on my YT channel when I use tutorials or textures.
Yes, thats an amazing thought ! Lets get it soon into action. Will speak to the CM asap !
Do you want me to PM her? I'm quite free nowadays. And I was wondering, the index Gagan brought up for the tutorial page, and for the 'help' thread, maybe that should be implemented to make things easier for browsers? I can compile some of it if necessary, as now the thread is not that long. Yet.
Ive already PMed her about credits.
Yes, please go ahead with Index work. Im sure it would be alot of help to browsers. I was thinking of where we could have the Index. Do you think the topic starter has to do it on the front page ?
I think that's necessary, it's easiest if it's on the front page. So we'll have to PM the starters of the threads.
