This is a good topic to bring up again. Placing videos in a post, instead of just links to the videos, can make the page load very slowly for some people. That gets them aggravated. We've even had this discussion more recently. See the conversation that starts here in the pet peeves thread.

I can see it both ways. The enticing video picture makes it much easier to click on the video to watch it. That way I don't have to click on the link, wait for another page to load, then click on the video to watch it.

If you have an opinion on the matter, please feel free to state it here so we can keep the conversation together. I know we won't end up pleasing everyone with the decision that is made, but be assured that we are listening to your ideas. We may end up going with "do which ever one you please". We will see.

I prefer adding the link to the word or embedded the videos in a spoiler tag so people can open it if they want too


EX: adding as a link with text (If unsure how to link click here)


The Beatles - Dancing in Hello Goodbye


EX: Embedding a video behind a spoiler tag (If unsure how to use a spoiler tag, click here)*


Hello and Goodbye dancing (Under Spoiler)


* Spoiler tags don't work when PMing someone

Never say never cause it's never 'never'
