Videos on the frontpage

Post by ElonNarai » Sun Oct 05, 2008 8:21 am

qubodup has made this nice video of the editor ( http://vimeo.com/1887665 ) and I think we should put it on the frontpage and also make a story (blog item) of it.

I agree. Gorzuate, why don't you write the story and post it? I think it will be good if we have more people writing the stories for the front page. If you can, see if we can embed that video right on the front page as well.

We can embed it. Just change the input format of drupal and copy-paste the code
@Gorzuate: I have given you all the rights on the front site since you also are doing a lot with the webpage. I'm sorry if this hold you back.

I assume we have permission from qubodup to use this. If not, I'll ask him for it.

I doubt that he'll mind. He put it on a public video sharing site after all, but yeah it would be courteous of us to ask for his permission first. When you make the post make sure to mention that the video was created by him, one of the members of our community (and not the team). Its good to show that there's more people interested in Allacrost than just the people who work on it :heh:

Yes, we have permission (I asked for it explicitly) and he wanted to be credited as qubodup.

The video was posted on the freegamer blog: http://freegamer.blogspot.com/2008/10/h ... t-022.html


I actually just watched the video for the first time a couple hours ago and I thought it was very cool! I was like woah, that editor looks awesome :heh: No seriously, my opinion of the editor has been kind of meh in the last couple of months because all I was thinking about was what it couldn't do, and then when I watched that video and saw what it could do I was like sweet! I think its a great promotional tool for us. :approve:
