Yeah, my main issue is his videos need to be clicked on to see what they are. He's going to die soon so it won't matter.

I don't think Rokkr has any control over whether or not it shows titles. I was more annoyed that he kept posting the same videos for a little while.

I do for you, DRZ. Like I said, the majority of videos I see online DO post titles. It's the ones Rokkr posts specifically that never seem to have them.

I wouldn't know if they were the same video, because I don't click on most videos that are posted(by anyone).

I've always assumed he was just using the "Hell is repetition," method of trolling.

I have an idea that he may be purposely taking out the title in the code, to force you all to click play to see what they are. Dunno.

I don't care much either way, skalie.
But in the past, I have gone out of the thread without posting, specifically because Rokkr's untitled video was the last post.
If it had a title, I would have responded.

But if I REALLY cared that much, I would have just gone from the post above him instead.

I haven't been able to see Rokkr's pictures for months. Maybe it's a subtle statement.

Nah, the embed codes exactly the same, it's YouTube doing it.

I have no idea how to encode anything, but it doesn't surprise me that some think I do that, since speculation seems to easily turn into fact in so many minds here.
I pick videos in response to what was posted before, not whether they have titles or not.

Fact is this place was started, at least in my understanding because the heavy hand of Stile was not appreciated and people wanted to post as they wish.

It'd nice to see who the advocates of censorship are, since all this boils down to whether I can post a video in a thread or have a couple people shit all over the forum.

BTW, I looked and there is no way to tell if there's a title or not before a video gets posted. They don't show on Youtube at all.

i know i'm not a regular here, and more than likely what i'm about to suggest has been tried before, so i hope you'll forgive me for taking a minute of your time if it has.

perhaps a free music association thread might be in order? a forum i used to inhabit years ago had both a free word association thread and a free music association thread. it might particularly be helpful to people who post from devices that struggle with the large amounts of data that the videos require (leaving them frustrated) or that have browser issues, while allowing people who enjoy music to continue to swap thoughts that way.

there was a Free Video Association Thread created to address this.

Personally, I don't care that Rokkr posts videos in the FWA thread; I only find it annoying when he responds with the same video a few responses in a row. I'm pretty sure he's mostly stopped doing that, though.

I actually like the mix of words and video. My posts are there because I enjoy them. Toasting bill and cruncle's chestnuts is simply an added bonus to that.

without reference to bill and cruncle specifically, you understand what the reason might be that some people might get frustrated, especially if (for instance) they were checking in on a device that struggles with the data problem?

i don't really mess with that thread, but if i did i would have a problem if i were checking in on a break from work. the filters at work block youtube, which would render the "game" not playable for me.

Videos get posted in all kinds of threads. Do you advocate banning them from every thread not specifically dedicated to videos?

I can understand that, though the issue is:

A. The videos' titles don't always post. This isn't your fault, but it doesn't exactly move the game forward very well because it doesn't consistently post a title.

B. A lot of videos in one thread slows down even a fairly quick connection. It's one thing if someone's trying to browse a "What are you listening to" or thread explicitly dealing in videos, quite another thing if it's expected to be largely text-based.

C. A "Free Video Association" thread was created to help relieve the FWA thread, yet you're still posting videos in the FWA thread (and in the video thread too.) despite complaints otherwise. Yes, Cruncle and Bill's jimmies [have been/are being] rustled, but others are complaining as well.


Personally, I don't really care if you post videos. I was only really annoyed when you would repeatedly post the Nurse With Wound video as a response.

I would love it if I could make sure the titles are there, but as I pointed out, I can't even tell myself until the vid posts.

Also as I said, videos tend to turn up frequently in almost any thread. Anyone who has slow internet has my earnest sympathy, but when I was on dialup when I first got here, no special actions were taken to limit photos or anything else that made loading difficult.

I didn't ask for or expect anyone to change their posting habits to accommodate my limitations. I'm not sure why the reverse should be true now that I have a fast connection.

... but unless they're explicitly video-heavy threads (i.e. Random Awesomeness, Youtube Political thread, etc.), there's generally only 1 or 2 videos to load in threads where videos randomly appear.

"it would render the 'game' pointless", is what i believe i said. if there is an ongoing conversation about a topic, and i miss a piece of the conversation (the video), i still get the gist. the conversation can still be entered into, unlike the fwa thread , where the action stops with each post.


look, i don't really have a dog in this hunt. i am not a person who checks in every day, or even every week. but over the four years i've been checking in and out, it does seem that the board is less bustling, less vital and less fun. it seems like a board that'sslowly dying. pretty soon you'll be whittled down to a very few people who will divide up into camps not unlike "lord of the flies" as you slowly cannibilize each oher.if that's what all of you want for this board, fine. but it is sad, because it seems like you have a mix of people who could really be fun and keep new members because they were having an enjoyable experience rather than being treated to an internecine war.

good luck to you all.
