First off I would just like to point out that this post, has nothing to do with PonyArchive, since that is the drama for the evening. We were talking about other community issues with take downs, namely youtubes, and namely that tonight Alex S’ official youtube was taken down by trolls, and it was mainly 95% original content (I’d assume there was pony footage there, but a company usually doesn’t take things that far, unless its whole episodes).
As many have pointed out, the Youtube DMCA takedowns are pretty much a common thing now a days, I think I said it last week, even official gaming sites with official youtube channels have had their own material DMCA’d from youtube. Episodes are one thing, original content that people have poured their time into is another.
Basic concept is a site dedicated to pony videos for those who have large libraries on youtube. Original content only, and membership wouldn’t be open to the public namely because, video sites are bandwidth hogs. The system we are looking at has your basic sharing features (embedding / linking), commentary section and such.
Spazz wanted me to post something to the general public, basically a yes or no survey (via comments) on if you think such a service would benefit the community. And that’s it.
