    Clarification of YouTube policies

    After discussion with the staff, we've made a slight change in our rules regarding the mention of YouTube. Previously, we did not allow links OR mention of the site, due to the issue of copyright.

    However, we've decided that it's up to the networks to control their copyright material on YouTube, and not our job to police it. Because of this, here's the new rule:

    We WILL allow discussion of YouTube material, and posting about it, from this point forward. HOWEVER, we will NOT allow links to the material (just as before). If you want to talk about commercials being up on YouTube, go for it. But again, no links.

    If you have any questions regarding this change in policy, please post it here, or PM one of the mods (names are in red), and we'll be happy to discuss it.

    Thank you!

    Thanks John.

    Edit: Okay, so you said we can't post links. But what if we want to watch a video that someone is talking about? Can we ask for the keyword?

    I didn't get the old rule since it wasn't like Youtube was a big secret. This makes more sense.

    Keywords are fine to ask for, or position within a certain video, or whatever. Just no links.
