YES!

That's perfect for me. I'll go through the trouble of having to click a link if anyone wants to provide a youtube video in any thread.

Once again, YES! Woohoo!

My guess is it's a response to people using autoplay all the time.  It never bothered me as long as it was in the g-spot.  Killing the embed feature isn't the answer...

Well, actually, it is a working solution. It just might not be perfect though, because we will miss having direct access to videos in threads. How much trouble is it to just click a link though?

Don't you know that going through the extra clicks wastes valuable time? ;D

I def like the embed feature, in fact whenever I'd pop into a thread that somebody threw in a youtube link I'd usually embed it for them.

LOL...Seer? Rud? Ya'll have some explaining to do (though it may not be a terrible idea with all the gay autoplays that were going around). But still, the embedding videos feature was useful.

Is there no way to enable an embed function, but disable autoplay. I don't see what the problem with embedded videos would be if everyone could click play for themelves, the autoplay shit I don't mind being switched off at all though

So what's the trouble with everyone then... Autoplay becoming impossible, or embedding being disabled? I don't think embedding itself was a problem, but if the only way to get rid of the lame autoplaying is to totally disable embedding - just click the fucking link when someone posts it... Big fucking deal.

If possible the embedding should be allowed, but autoplay disabled cause it was becoming annoying as hell lol.
Title: Re: Youtube disabled?
Post by: jeromechickenbone on April 06, 2008, 06:05:49 AM
Turning off the embed feature is seriously the most fucking retarded idea ever.  Autoplay can be both funny and annoying at times, but just mute your shit for the 10 seconds you're in the thread.  It's not that fucking hard.

And as far as I could tell, it was only happening in the G-Spot.  It's not like any relevant topics were inundated with autoplay.  G-Spot should be the most mod-free spot on this board. 

This is purely a bitch move by doggystylin - it's made the forum worse and it's all because of some gay beef he has w/ kain.

This is why I'm mad, I make an MLK thread to mention it's been 40 years since his death. I tried to embed some videos, and as amazing as it seems people are too lazy to click on the links. So a thread that featured MLK's last speech has turned into some bullshit 'cause no one watched that shit.

I'll vouch that I entered your thread but didn't check the vids because they weren't embedded.

There you go. People may or may not have watched it (I agree with you on how people might not feel challenged to click these youtube links all the time), but to blame that for the discussion that followed, is absolutely way off. That's what happens in any thread which Job enters: it ends in a whimsical hatefest.

Unless seer did something before he went away - something i havent been able to check yet - then we've done nothing to change this. Seer and I are the only ones who could change forum back-end settings.

LOL @ you thinking that Seer would change the board cuz 1 person asked him to.

Kain/Banana-boy is probably the reason there's no embedding/autoplay any more.

You probably were bitching too.  Then again, if the embed was indeed removed because of Kain then apparently Seer WOULD change the board for 1 person...

The embed feature wasn't removed because it was an epidemic that was destroying the board, it was removed to spite Kain since you guys couldn't figure out how to ban him.  Admit it.

FALSE.

Because of abuse, from a few posters, not because of a random PM asking for change.

The embed feature wasn't removed because it was an epidemic that was destroying the board, it was removed to spite Kain since you guys couldn't figure out how to ban him.  Admit it.

I don't know why it was removed, but I do know that it was annoying as hell for anybody playing music while browsing the Dub.
Even more annoying when posters quoted hidden autoplay messages, and when there's more than 1 autoplay in a thread.

Title: Re: Youtube disabled?
Post by: jeromechickenbone on April 06, 2008, 09:36:13 AM
FALSE.

You never bitched about autoplay?  I don't believe that.

I don't know why it was removed, but I do know that it was annoying as hell for anybody playing music while browsing the Dub.
Even more annoying when posters quoted hidden autoplay messages, and when there's more than 1 autoplay in a thread.

Well if Doggy actually did his job properly, he could delete / edit threads that quoted autoplay.  What's the point of letting him be a mod if he's not going to do the job?

Removing the embed was completely stupid and not the answer.  If people want to be annoying, they can find MANY other ways than autoplay.  Kain could spam the shit out of every section on this board and you couldn't stop him because he can't be banned. 

Again, it wasn't an epidemic and it wasn't like they were going into worthwhile discussions in other forum sections and completely ruining them.  At least not that I can recall.  It was relegated to random joke threads in the G-Spot which is exactly where it should be.

And now you've taken away a very useful feature of the board, thereby punishing the rest of us.
