Well i was tring to find where you can post videos like you can on other forum sites, but i guess you cant, they got rules like if you repost the video over again you will get kicked, any sign of porno and get kicked (eltc) what i am speaking of we should be able to post videos here is a similar forum

    a [youtube][/youtube] feature I saw on one forum is the only time I've seen it used well.

    Also; No videos in signatures. No pictures are there for a reason.

  • We post so many pictures and gifs as it is, I'd shudder to think what would happen if video posting was allowed. In any case, linking is perfectly acceptable and works just great.

  • I really appreciate a lack of embedded autoplay videos. If there's really a good video you want to share, it's worth the effort to describe why you like it and provide a link for those who are interested.

  • i wouldnt mind being able to post a video on the forums like a jpog video, or like an upcoming trailer, or if you want something funny in the general chat area you can post the video and just click play, that way if the link doesn't work or something like that you would be able to watch it on the forums
    or kind of like a movie lol

  • From what I understand, that would require some tricky tinkering with the forum backend, which already isn't in great shape as it is. Technologically speaking, I don't think this would even be a possibility unless Telltale updated the forum software, and there's no indication of that happening any time soon.

    That said, even if it were a possibility, the Telltale admins wouldn't do it anyway. Mostly, it would just prove to be an annoying feature for most users, other than the ones who would use and likely abuse it.

    on the age of champions site people use it rarlly like if a movie trailer or something, a game site with forums like klick nations it is a little bit more advanced with its technology, abling to do that, if you created an account on there right now and play aoc, there is an option, insert video here, or insert pic from computer here, i think this site would use some updating so when you get a pic too big, you can adjust it outside the internet to make it fit

    I've been to (and moderated) other forums where there existed a [youtube][/youtube] bbcode so that youtube videos could be embedded. Granted, the TTG forums use vBulletin, and said other forums I used which had this ability used Invision Power Board.

  • It's not just the vBulletin thing. Not only do these forums use a somewhat dated version of vBulletin, but the software isn't even running the way it's supposed to behind the scenes. I'm not sure what the coding equivalent of jury rigging is, but that's what I've been led to believe is going on here.

  • We have a whole new site coming early next year, including a new and much improved forum. As of right now, we're planning to switch over to Vanilla Forum.
