Default You-tube only forum

There are way, WAY too many links in the pub for you-tube videos. Most people know where you-tube is. If they want to see videos of Paris Hilton, or a kid doing a burnout, or monkeys probing eachother, finding the video is not an issue.

My suggestion; keep the pub for chat, and start a gallery just for links to other stuff.

Actually this is like a wheeling website:tonka: , and the pub is intended for the miscellanious crap. So if we start putting the crap else where, what is the pub needed for?

Does the imbeded videos still interfere?

If they don't then perhaps only the linked videos need moved. If people learn to imbed the video then there shouldn't be a problem.

Since when do you have a job?

Or is your "job" breaking into the neighbors house when they go to work to use their computer?

Here's a nifty idea, you worry about you, and those of us that surf from work will worry about us.

I'm trying to figure out how embedded video makes surfing at work different? They shouldn't be auto-playing.

I am thinking he is refering to the recent threads where it isn't embedded but just a link.

every time someone opens a thread with YouTube in it, it hits YouTube for the 1st frame of the video as a preview even if you don't play it.

That means that people at offices where IT has banned YouTube due to sexual/inappropriate content automatically get fucked when they open a thread that they do not know contains an embedded YouTube video. It would be nice to find a way for members to shut off embedded videos (like avatar's or signatures) or otherwise indicate that the thread contains embedded video in each Forum Index, along the lines of "NSFW" or a maybe a "video" icon next to the thread title.
E-mailed to me by our "it" guy explaining why people may have problems viewing threads while at work. I guess it could potentially get them in trouble when even though GL4x4 is allowed, you tube is not....
