Were and are, unfortunately.
It's a problem associated with hassle-free video hosting - some apparently decide that if you can use the site to upload something without charge, you can use it to upload anything without charge - and that rules are there to be broken.

But eh, so long as we have enough whistleblowers and not too many abusers around, this is manageable.

We've occasionally had 100 videos in a single day. This just is not possible.

Maybe we should take volunteers to do QA? I know that would require a semi-basic QA worklist system to be created, but could save headaches later when we might have to do more of this kind of thing as volumes keep increasing.










That or only let people who donate host videos. :)

I secound it!!!
It is a very good idea to have volunteers to do simple chores.
And it would take a lot of the pressure to the adms around here.

Yeah, but then you just have to make sure the volunteers are honest.

While the mod drop box is a nice place to inform the mods about such videos perhaps a "report this video" link could be added on the video profile page that creates a list for the admins to verify.

Another reason we need a karma system implemented here. Though Phade has been trying to find a good system that would work in our situation. I would just have harsh penalties for people who lied about the vidoes. Like banation or disable their uploading prividges.

I already do deny people upload and download access if they abuse the server.

*sigh* I still think that it would have been much more reasonable to have just made the restriction of not allowing the videos on the server and letting us keep the videos in our profiles, and potentially even setting a flag such that searches ignored them so they didn't clog up the search results when someone ran a search.

Actually, what I'm more annoyed about than anything is the fact that we weren't notified that the entries were about to be deleted so we could back up/copy the information we had over to someplace else- I would have moved my description/background on PPG:R over to my own site, and now I'll have to try and remember what all was in it and retype it from scratch.

And yes, I'm coming somewhat late to this- but I would have said something earlier if there had been some notice more obvious than in this forum given. :?
