Congratulations on reaching new heights on VideoSift. You have earned yourself 84 stars, earning you status of Gold Star member. You have been awarded 1 Power Point for achieving this level. Thanks for all your contributions.
I miss your tough love...where are you? In reply to this comment by Fletch: YouTube called. They want their troll back.
No problemo amigo! In reply to this comment by Fletch: Thanks. That did it. I had tried changing the video size, but I apparently had something else wrong when I did. Started from the beginning and just changed the size... works. Thanks again. In reply to this comment by firefly: The embed code's width you have listed exceeds VS' allowed maximum of 500, change that and you should be OK. (make sure you change it both places)
That's too funny In reply to this comment by Fletch: *dead

maybe you're planning a sneak attack, but dammit, get yourself over to the roast In reply to this comment by Fletch: "You are like our Colmes in Hannity and Colmes. You give us something to rail against." And, like Colmes, he's an ineffective tool.
Thanks! FOund it at deezer.com, too! http://www.deezer.com/?urlIdSong=4857 In reply to this comment by Fletch: http://www.lyrics-top.com/1705-238/five-for-fighting/100-years.html In reply to this comment by maatc: Whoa, looks like he got whipped around when he hit the end of the rope. Whats the music? Sounds like Dave Matthews Band...No?
thanks; undeaded In reply to this comment by Fletch: *dead
Danke. In reply to this comment by Fletch: I couldn't find a postable clip of it, but if you google "fire piston", you can see what exactly we are talking about. Things are really pricey, but there are so few people making them, and I have yet to find a mainstream company mass-producing them (although I haven't looked very hard). Most that you can buy online are hand-made. EDIT: BTW, the particular show in which it is demonstrated was the Survivorman episode where he is on the northwest coast of Alaska. In reply to this comment by ant: Fletch, TheSnipe, or anyone: Share that video clip on VS if it is online please.
Alright, switched it out just for you. In reply to this comment by Fletch: Well, I've never heard a version that wasn't "mother mother". Still, I was only referring to the word "tit" being blocked. As a matter of fact, here is an even BETTER quality version than the other one I suggested (also uncensored): http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoID=1454895290 In reply to this comment by arrendek: I have the CD actually, and the lyrics are "mother f**ker", if I remember correctly. Maybe I'll check one of these days.
I have the CD actually, and the lyrics are "mother f**ker", if I remember correctly. Maybe I'll check one of these days. In reply to this comment by Fletch: "Mother mother" are the real lyrics. The part that is censored is the word "tit" at 2:46 and 1:45. It's not censored in the version I sent you. But it's your video. You can do what you want. And you're welcome. It's a kick-ass song. In reply to this comment by arrendek: @Fletch - That one is censored as well, as far as I can tell. (i.e. "Mother Mother") Thanks for the save!
Yeah, comparing it to my post wasn't exactly fair. I knew when I posted I'd get a few down votes. As for the wallaby, though, it wasn't that I thought it was mislabeled, or even boring for that matter. Several phrases popped into my head to describe it, but I was raised not to use such language in mixed company. I was just trying to be polite. I did read as much as I could find in old talk posts about the philosophy of it. Seems like it caused quite a stir when the feature was first introduced. I guess I do understand the arguments like arrendek's. I think the differences of opinion arise from what different people see as the purpose of VS. To me, having 20000 videos that are all liked by someone or another is less valuable than 2000 that are all true gems. But as you say, to each his own. I didn't need to read anything to know that down voting a post because of who submitted it is bogus. That just seems like common sense. It's unfortunate that a few folks here seem to flagrantly disregard that, though. btw - your avatar, now that is cute. mine, not so much. In reply to this comment by Fletch: In reply to this comment by jonny: By voting down while a video is in the queue, one has a chance to affect the post. Afterwards, it seems, it's not much more than a "your taste sucks." Exactly my point. Why would you want to "affect the post" by preventing such an uncontroversial video from getting published? Was it because he applied the "cute" label and you didn't find it so? I'd never tell someone how they are supposed to vote, so don't get me wrong here. If you read back on some of the ST's on the subject, you know there are as many ideas about exactly when downvotes should be used as there are members here. But, generally, I think people choose to no-vote non-offensive videos at least until they make it out of the queue. If a video is popular enough, it will make it out regardless of any no-votes, but so many just squeak by, or just miss by a vote or two. I'm not saying every video should be published, either. Read arrendek's bio. Pretty much the way I see it. Kind of a "to each his own" view.  Ah, so a video can be discarded even after publication. That changes my feelings about down voting after publication being more rude. But I still think it makes more sense not to wait - if the point of a down vote is to express the opinion that one really doesn't want a video on the sift. I do try to be very judicious with down votes. I've seen several videos make it out of the queue, only to be discarded for content, dupe, self-link, etc. Again, you can use a downvote for any reason you like. That doesn't mean we have to agree on it's use. You can apply "to each his own" here too. The only thing that is against VS rules ("entirely unacceptable") is fragging, using it as a personal vendetta against a poster. One last point - SG had no such qualms about down voting my video while it was in the queue, and it didn't seem to bother you then, Fletch. In fact, nearly all of the down votes I received on my submissions were while they were in the queue. I don't pay attention to the comments of, or even see, every video, so I'm sure there are lot's of examples counter to my view of things. The only reason I even noticed your downvote was because maatc referred to it in his comment. As far as the Jesus Christ Action Figure video... I think you'll find (if you haven't already noticed), that any videos of a religious nature, even one so inane as that, tend to polarize many people here. I thought it was funny. I upvoted it. But the same topics that can offend and create tension and conflict in the real world can offend and create tension and conflict here. What I thought was funny may have offended SG. Also, we're all human. Sometimes we just break our own rules (BTW, I bolded my portions so it was easier to separate from yours, not because I was yelling at ya.)
Thanks for the link! In reply to this comment by Fletch: *dead Possible replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnqAwtorUTE
Fyi... Let me know how it works out for ya. In reply to this comment by lucky760: >>Still would love the drop-down comments box to scale with selected resolution. If you do a hard reload (ctrl+shift+reload) you'll see much better sized pop-up boxes for comments and playlists.
