Maybe it's just me, but I don't think this would really help keep the conversation over here as opposed to over on the youtube video. Allowing youtube embeds would only be marginally more convenient (one tab instead of flipping between two). I'm inclined to think that the people who would actually discuss chez's amviews would do so on the thread here anyways, and that allowing embeds wouldn't really entice new people into discussing.
Can anyone else chime in on this?

Then again, it would suck to announce a video and have it taken down the very next day and having YouTube as the only viewable option.
Overall, there are definite benefits to it, but also a lot headaches as well. It's something that the administration would have to be willing to dedicate time to coding, as well as the current mod staff in keeping it's execution correct.

Additionally, if it's going to be a somewhat long-running thing *cough*IC4*cough*, we (read: I) might be able to modify individual user permissions so that an embed request only needs to be done once.gote wrote:i get what nya said about it after my first post though, so maybe a form of embed requesting can be done.
