You can embed YouTube videos, you can't embed any other kind of video.

The wiki might have been nice back in the days when deals were a bigger thing (deal sites are where I've seen this used the most). Can't really think of any other good uses, maybe sheep games.

Yeah, fixing embeds for other services would be much more useful then this. Cool feature though, glad that some work is being done.

I don't have any experience with other forums which use this feature, so I have trouble seeing the benefit. Can someone explain how it could best be used?

I can embed a YT by doing that stupid link shortening thing. I just want to copy the code and paste it from YT. I can't do that anymore therefore, I can't embed YT videos.

Yeah. I don't give a fuck about this wikipost. Give us access to post videos from wherever and able to post tweets. Jesus. This site is out of date.

I think we should have a tier of those who can edit posts in certain forums, versus just the 90/90 rule.

I've been trying to think of a situation where this would be beneficial. The closest thing I can think of would be an instance where the first post of a thread really needed to be updated with some useful information and the OP had disappeared or was slow to make a change.

Edit to add:

Perhaps an example: You have the long Disney Rewards thread in the "Hot Deals" forum. Occasionally, someone will post a bonus code that folks can use for points on their individual accounts. At times, it doesn't take long before that code might be "buried" as a number of posts follow. I suppose it could be put in that top area, assuming it always remains at the top of each page. It would then be easier to locate a current promo/code. Granted, those folks looking for codes like that usually subscribe to the thread or check it when it is bumped.

The most useful I can think of is in deals forum. But I doubt there would be upkeep.

Agreed. Something that may require someone to jump through a few hoops to get, or use a specific link, or where items included in sale may change frequently, etc. Also, when there used to be a thread for single bigger releases. The wiki could be used to list links for the different stores and their exclusives.

The other websites that I have seen use the wiki post function always seem to put it after the initial post in a thread. This way people know what the thread is about before they see the wiki post. I think I find that setup a bit more useful than putting the wiki post first as it woudl appear they may be doing here.

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

We have a running thread for the Tapped Out mobile game, and the first post is, among other things, a list of player IDs for people who want to add friends. Only the OP can add new names, so that might be a use case for this feature.

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

Especially when that OP take a year-long hiatus from DVDTalk...

But actually, yes, I was thinking the same thing for my OP in the Simpsons Tapped Out thread. We had a similar situation with the Battlefield Bad Company 2 thread, as well. I enjoy being "keeper" of the OP and yet I'm not always the best at updating and it may be better to put it in the hands of the people. One thing I did do well is spring cleaning and organizing, which we'd just have to hope happens or else I'd still do that in the wiki.

There will be two ways to "hide" it -- one is to close it in any page, which cookies you; the other is a setting in your userCP that we will turn on today, called "hide all wikis" which will reduce them all to a narrow bar. I do not recommend this, as you will essentially never see them.

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

Thought of a good use of this. Take, for example, the OJ Simpson thread or something. The wiki can be used to highlight key updates for example:

OJ suspected in Murder <link to post>
OJ being chased by police <link to post>
OJ trial to start <link to post>
OJ found not guilty <link to post>
OJ Arrested again <link to post>
OJ found guilty - prison <link to post>
OJ released from prison <link to post>
OJ found dead <link to post>
Fred Goldman arrested for OJ's Death <link to post>
Trump Pardons Fred Goldman <link to post>
etc..

For those long threads..

But shouldn't they always contain the ability to expand them if we choose to see the content, even if we "hide" them in the settings? I would hate to lose that ability if I "hide" them in the settings, but I would also hate to have to wade through them every time I choose to open a thread.

Replace Explorer with DVDTalk. By 2030, the forum will be able to embed Tweets. Sadly, by 2030, Twitter doesn't exist anymore.

Re: The Wikipost intro thread

I finally embraced the 'new posts' link and 'go to newest post' button a couple years ago. Can't believe I waited so long, there is no other logical way to use the forum imho. I think most of us do this so we automatically skip what we've already read and don't waste time.

But because of this, I rarely see the top of threads. And I'm certainly not going to scroll to the top everytime I visit a thread.
