Needs Help: Dumbass Has A Point get usage counts

This is a title.
The "image" for Dumbass Has a Point is a video, which, I always thought the point of pictures was a quick and dirty example of the trope in question, so a six minute long video would be kinda sorta counterproductive. Heck, it'd probly take as long to read the entire page as watch the video.

To that end, may I move to pull?

The madness is catching.
Echo Chamber videos are ok, apparently. But I agree. Pulling isn't going to happen, but replacing might. Suggestion?

Just off the top of my head OoTS: [1] Panel six or [2] the last three panels.

I'm looking through 8 Bit Theater because there's tons of those moments but with a 1000+ pages it's like looking for a needle in a haystack so that might take some time.

[up] Ew, wall of text. Terrible. Sadly, as much as I like Oot S, I think they make terrible page images because they rely too heavily on dialogue to get the point across. That kinda defeats the purpose of having, you know, an image.

Well, it's a dialogue prominent trope sooo...

Has there been a decision about removing the Echo Chamber vids? I'm hesitant to do so without word one way or the other.

Noo such decision was ever made in all the policy and IP threads I've read (read:All of the former and all recent ones of the latter). Only thing I can find is pretty ambiguous

Gentleman Troper!
I'm in favor of replacing the video by the second OOTS link. I'd also be happy to hear other suggestions.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

MOVE, B****! GET OUT THE WAY!
Since the Echo Chamber vids are done by tropers for tropers, we should ask them to make another video with a better depiction of the trope.

Eddie's ruled that the Echo Chamber pics are staying on the pages. Closing this up; the same has been posted in the IP policies thread.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
