Uploading images/videos

I'm not sure if the current 'personal image' policy covers this, but I think we oughta reword it to include videos. We might even consider putting it in the Site Notice for a while. WWTDD? 19:04, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

I second that. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 19:08, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
This needs to get a consensus soon, as people uploading silly videos is going to get out of hand, fast. Karlis (talk) (contribs) 00:26, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
Tertiary adjunct that. Update the policy already ~kytti khat 00:45, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Absolutely stop any furter uploading of these things. After all, isn't a video (movie) a series of consecutive images (pictures)? So this is technically covered already.--Degenret01 03:06, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

I don't even like the idea of uploading videos. If people want to display videos they can upload it to Youtube and link to it... 04:12, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
You can embed Youtube videos right into the middle of an article anyway.... if it is appropriate. While I think the deletion of "personal images" has gone overboard on this wiki, I fail to see what real benefit is gained by uploading most videos onto this wiki that isn't already covered with animated GIF images.... many of which are overdone as well.
The main point of the "personal images" prohibition is mainly to keep this website from becoming a repository like Flicker and YouTube for other fan websites. In that spirit, I support a general prohibition against videos not used explicitly for content development or that is mostly a duplication of existing content. This is in spite of my desire to permit a limited number of snapshots related to your character that may appear on the user page for active participants of this website. --Robert Horning 09:15, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
Support - I can see that a few people have been trying it out already, mostly with personal content. What makes it worse is that I can't see the videos on this computer, and the 'What links here' function doesn't seem to work for them. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 10:18, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Support including videos in the personal image policy per Degenret. This should be included in the policy already. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 03:26, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Support including videos in the personal image policy. This just sounds like common sense to me. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 20:29, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Comment - We no longer have the video extension, so is this still valid? I guess we could pass this to future proof us if we end up with it again someday, but otherwise this could just be closed. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 12:58, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
