    Default A simple question...

    Why is the the only forum that I have ever seen that uses youtube tags? All of the other forums I post on use the embed link already POSTED ON THE YOUTUBE PAGE.

    Do you realize how many noobs this confuses?

    "Sorry, but I cant get teh embed link to work."

    Im not saying change it, Im jsut wondering who the fuck decided to do it like that. Was is jnumbers copying codes?

    I don't mind it personally.

    Except on the first CD I was using the wysiwyg editor...thus I couldn't see that my copypasta of the code automatically got a size tag to it...I didn't get why though.
    I hear the voices inside my head. They counsel me. They understand. They talk to me.

    If someone can't figure out how to use the youtube tags the video was probably not worth watching anyway.

    Um my guess would be it's a vBulletin thing? It's not something we'd do on purpose.

    Maybe we can fix it?

    what one can do is change the regex to allow a full url or whatever you paste from youtube as well, before the html filter kicks in

    Why not let us vote on enabling html? I can see it now... It'll be epic.

    Enabling HTML is a horrible idea. Anyone who has been on a forum with HTML code on can attest to this.

    Obviously. Matter of fact I think the last board I was on that enabled HTML was in 1999 and it no longer exists.

    I dont know shit about HTML vz VB code. So why does HTML suck?

    And I was looking at the other forums I was talking about, and they have HTML enabled only in the video forum.

    HTML doesn't suck, but it opens up the forum to a number of vulnerabilities and general asinine posts. (think blink and marquee)


    Enabling HTML so it's safe to use would require work. (Same with something easier than youtube tags)

    Enabling html on this forum with our community is in the top three worst ideas I've ever heard, right behind using my own defecation as sustenance and sticking my dick in a blender.

    It would start out as a nice little feature and quickly snowball into the worst idea on the internet.
