Huh, didn't know this hadn't been posted. It's actually the video I chose as my pick in the Master List. Thanks for posting.

I read my written review over a collection of video clips. Why is this not considered a written essay that is read aloud over relevant video accompaniment which seeks to analyze some media text (tv, film, music, art, speech, etc)? As I've read the definition of "video essay" is constantly evolving and definition is purely arbitrary, please grant me permission to repost. Thank you.

How... how is that a valid criticism?

It won't help at this point, but here, take this upvote.

The short answer is, you're the DM and so can't be wrong.

High on the list of poor GM traits.

I very much want to know how you did this

6 points · 26 days ago · edited 26 days ago

Posting a link is very simple. You have to put the link inside of ( and ) and it must start with http: or https:. If you want to make text into a hyperlink then you put the text inside of [ and ] before the link. For example:
[Link to Google](http://google.com)
Will look like:
Link to Google

I can't tell if you're trying to be helpful even though what you said had nothing to do with what I was asking, or if you're trying to troll and you're just bad at it.

Or... maybe you're trying to troll and you're just THAT good at it...

MRW u/motrous underestimates me, and I knock him out in the first round.

Makes sense. Would videos talking about political topics but not necessarily analyzing media (like some of the stuff on /r/BreadTube) count?

see more
2 points · 28 days ago

That's tricky too. I wish there were an easy answer. Lemme give you one I would approve. There's a video Nerdwriter did analyzing Trump's language and speeches in general from around election time. That would count because it's analyzing a text (in this case speech). Not sure what videos you have in mind, though. If they're just reactionary or explanatory then probably not. If it's analyzing speeches or movements then I might be more inclined to approve it. But it skirts, honestly, and we try to keep the sub to something we can at least loosely say is a text. That's why we don't allow a lot of historical, expository videos.

I know that's not a great answer, but I don't have a great answer. I can say it doesn't hurt to post. Worst we'll do is remove it. Unless it's wildly off topic or spammy we're not going to ban you or anything.

Original Poster1 point · 28 days ago

Gotcha, gotcha. I was specifically thinking of this video as an example, which analyzes the philosophical differences between American the right and left, but not any media. It uses references in the same manner as citing a source, but doesnt analyze them, so it wouldnt count. Makes sense!

Thanks for understanding. You might try r/mealtimevideos. They're huge and don't have a content restriction except for duration.

Why would you have an anonymous tournament? It’s like having a world cup without telling anyone what the teams are. It’s moronic.

Because unlike the World Cup the winner is decided by votes. It would turn into a popularity contest. The anonymity rule insures a level playing field.
