I wanted to write this to address all of the questions that we've been receiving about why we are not allowing v.reddit uploads or shares. This might seem a little silly as this is a Video subreddit, and v.reddit is the built-in Video function, but the mod team has decided not allow it.
This is because it is totally unreliable to moderators, and we fail to view half the content due to loading issues or it becoming blurry overall, or it blocks our access to the comments system. Our mods have decided that if we can't mod the content, it shouldn't be allowed.
We hope to fix this soon, but it is out of our control.
Best, The Mod Team
Good news, everyone!
Now that some time has passed since the previous issues with Reddit's native video uploader, we have decided to allow it as a posting option on a trial basis. This should also mitigate the sound issues that come with posting clips through third-party sites, as well as just being more convenient. Obviously, using those sites is still an option, if you prefer. You do you, I guess.
Now for some "bad" news, depending on your perspective.
In an effort to make searching for old posts easier, we will be implementing a new rule. From now on, we will be requiring all posts to have descriptive titles. Of course, we still want you to be creative and witty with your titles, just be sure to include some words related to the subject or actions of the clip. If your post is removed for a title issue (it will be noted as such), don't worry and just try again, you're not going to be punished for it. If you are unsure how to reword it, send us a message and we can offer suggestions. Obviously, this will not be implemented retroactively, because heck that. Again, this is meant to be as helpful for you as it is for us, reducing reposts and making it easier to find your favorite clips.
We hope you all have a great day and we love you!
