Follow TV Tropes
Yeah i was of the thought that if we started the clean up essentially as the videos came in we could curb them, but it feels like videos of poor resolution, watermarks, not clearly or effectively displaying the trope keep going up, so it's an ever steeper uphill battle.
Which also brings up the question of what the minimum requirement is for a video to be reviewed and approved. Maybe if we can agree on a few more ground rules maybe more videos could just be rejected in the first place.
Or could videos be put into a crowner system per page before going up, similar to Image Pickin threads so it's slightly less work for the mods to personally enforce.
Just tryingto think of ways the clean up could be preemptive instead of reactive.
But what clean-up? We can't do anything until we get some sort of mod help, or the ability to fix videos without being mods.
I sincerely want to get stuff done and make the videos awesome, but I'm truly, honestly, unsure of how to do so.
The Teen Titans Go! To the Movies
example on Black Comedy has royalty-free music instead of the actual audio, and it has a watermark at the end. It’s a good example, but it needs some work.
Maybe we could re-record that scene in high-quality with original audio, using a video recording device that doesn't use watermarks? (That sounded like a Corrupt-a-wish wish where the wisher wants to avoid as many corruptions as possible.)
Anyway, for the "Weird Al" Yankovic example on Manipulative Editing, could we remove the The Weird Al Show on the "Source Media" thing for now? The source media is actually Al-TV. I could create the media Al TV with a little help from you.
The CollegeHumor example on Creepy Cute copies pretty much the whole video from the original. Our video could use some trimming that focuses on specific examples.
looks like there's a new voting system on individual videos. maybe the ones that stay close to 1 or 2 stars eventually get axed?
Even if it's after they're posted rather than before, good to see some type of crowner system, even though i'm not sure how it works.

I found that Jump Scare has a video, and it isn't really a good example. It's only very mildly startling at most, and I'm not convinced it was even intended to make the viewers jump. Of course, an actual Jump Scare would be a horrible thing to have a video of, so I feel like the page ought to stay video-free.
Anything that doesn't have text examples shouldn't have video examples. At least, that's what I think.
While it does an good job at portraying Absurdly High-Stakes Game, I'm not quite sure of the copyright kurfuffle that comes from using an entire fan song for a video.
Most of the Steven Universe videos could be considered big spoilers.
When you upload a video, there's an option to check off a box claiming that it contains spoilers. Does that actually do anything? I feel like it should, especially if you have "Show Spoilers" off.
I have mentioned this many, many times. I'm almost certain they're all being uploaded by the same person.

I've added the video example for Strange Minds Think Alike to the sandbox list for not being an example of the trope.
The scene is a joke scene in a conversation between a group of girls who are combat students. Penny says she's combat ready. Weiss doesn't think Penny looks the part. Blake makes a snide comment about Weiss wearing a skirt. Weiss retorts that it's a 'combat skirt' and Ruby (who also wears a skirt) high-fives Weiss in agreement.
The tag-line for the video is that Weiss and Ruby finally agree on something.
The trope description, however, is that one person uses odd logic to reach a certain conclusion and, later on, a second person uses the same odd logic to reach the same conclusion, despite having no idea someone else said the same thing.
Is it worth pinning the sandbox link to the first post so that that it's easy to find?

Story-Breaker Power's video is from the penultimate episode of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo. It spoils the 11th-Hour Superpower used to defeat the Big Bad. In fact, the villain's very face could be considered a spoiler since he spends most of the story hiding in shadows.
Going back to Steven Universe, I appear to have missed some videos:
Gee, so many Change Your Mind videos. Regardless, I think they should be removed for being spoilers
Peridot's Heel–Face Turn is probably old enough (and there's been so much of the show since then) that it could probably stay. Don't think we should delete spoiler videos since we'd like to implement a way of marking videos as spoilers, but I'm not even sure the SU video for Not Me This Time is valid; have Yellow and Blue done something like that before?

Well considering the In-Universe context is Yellow's ship coming out of nowhere to deck White's ship, when Yellow and Blue are utterly terrified of White, I'd say no, they most likely haven't done anything like that, even offscreen.
Since It's been asked we do this on ATT,
The ProZD video example on Shipping Goggles is the entirety of his video, which isn't kosher.
It's been removed.
OK, with the ATT and this thread, denied a bunch of spoiler-y examples from SU. Pinging ~EvilerThanThou and ~Monolaf317 to discuss, since they added all of the videos in question.
Sorry 'bout that... I guess I was a bit overexcited with a goldmine of tropes, hahaha...

Won't be posting anymore spoilery videos from now on! :)
Thanks nombre, though the videos still seem to be available via the Recent Videos list and VideoExamples.Steven Universe The Movie (which is also a red link for some reason) itself - unless that was intentional?
Oh, and while we have you here, the SU movie video for Big "WHAT?!" isn't actually an example.
Edited by Crossover-Enthusiast on Sep 9th 2019 at 8:53:51 AM
The newly denied videos (as listed here) were all sourced to VideoExamples.StevenUniverse, not VideoExamples.StevenUniverseTheMovie. You're going to have to call out the videos specific to the latter for them to be denied.
ETA: to be clear, I was working off of the list here since it seemed to be capturing a lot of the ATT-cited videos, and the ATT seemed to have some active debate on some of the videos listed there.

How well does it match the trope?
