We recognize and understand the importance of multimedia on our forums. Below you will find the revised guidelines for a few of the most common ways that our past users have deployed their content. We'll do our best to communicate our expectations here.
Please keep the below in mind when posting, creating signatures, or uploading avatars.
Important General Information
Spamming of any sense in regards to multimedia content will result in a posting suspension and the removal of all of your content. The length of the suspension is at our discretion. Spamming includes asking our forum for subscriptions or follows.
Our community reserves the right to dislike provided content within reason. Reports against our community for justified criticism will result in the removal of your thread.
Thread Type Guidelines
We have heavily outlined that our community is of the typed discussion format. Therefore, we would like you to follow the grain and present the content of the video as a summary below the link or the embed.
Yes, we understand that some videos are long and some concepts need to be paraphrased. We're okay with this, but a six-minute video is not effectively described in two sentences. If you care about the content you're bringing, then you will meet this expectation. It is a simple request.
Yes, this includes commentaries too.
Showcase / Streaming Pieces
Similar to the above, we would like a description of your content. What you did or what you intend to do is generally what we're looking for. Engage our community and see if anyone else has done this or will do this as well. You will need to put some effort into this written portion, but it should be a piece of cake.
Quality / Feedback Inquiries
These were at one point standalone and allowed to exist, but were exploited to gain views. As such, we have retracted our initial position of allowing them and ask for you to consider the following. Please conduct this along with your presentation of the above two situations. This allows for a deeper field of discussion alongside any points or challenges you bring with the video. Videos that lack a description and simply ask for feedback will be removed.
One thread is all you need per video. If you're going to create a series, please create a single thread for this series and update as you go along.
Posting in the correct sub-forum is important. If the video is related to a particular platform, then post it in the platform's sub-forum. If you need to reach a general audience, then the index or general sections will do quite well.
Bumping your video or creating artificial discussion — yes we will find out either immediately or over time — is discouraged. This can and will lead to action taken against your thread and forum account.
