Reminder on Video Reviews

El-Jaro El-Jaro
Howdy Peoples!

I just wanted post a reminder on video reviews.

The title, description, and tags are important. The title for a review should be formated as: Toy name What type of toy it is Review. The first letter of every word is capitalized. For a regular review, the word "Video" is NOT needed anywhere in the title of the video. The word Review is NOT automatically added.

Descriptions are important because they some up the video for people before they watch the video. How many times have you wasted time on a stupid YouTube video because the description didn't match the video? Be as descriptive as possible, but you don't have to compose a book either. A paragraph or two, 4-8 lines maybe, ought to be fine, whatever gets the point across.

Adult videos MUST be tagged with "Nudity". This puts a little disclaimer clip in front of the video so people know what they're getting into.

Tags have the first letter of the first word capitalized and tagging a video with "Review" is not needed (they're all reviews of some time or another)

Make sure you contact Carrie Ann before you upload a video for a gift card. If there's already a video on the product, you're not going to get a gift card. If you upload someone else's video, it'll be considered plagiarism (just like copying a review) and be disabled.

Here are the video review guidelines and the other forum post with discussion.

If you don't know how to upload a video, here's a tutorial.

Thanks!

I checked the nudity box for my latest one (just a brief shot of nipple) but it never put the wrapper/warning in front of it.

I think you actually have to type "Nudity" in as one of the tags, PassionQT. I am not 100% but I know that I always do on mine and they get the proper cover.

Yup, that's EXACTLY what you have to do because checking the box 'nudity/anatomically correct' won't do it. Thanks! It's fixed now.

If they nudity wrapper doesn't show up when you look at it, let me know? We don't want people getting in trouble watching vids at work

And thanks to both of you for great video review!

I have a question... as now I cannot find the answer. Is it still recommended that you only upload 1 video per day unless you have permission from Carrie Ann in advance to upload more?

One per day and no more than four per week according to Carrie Ann: link

That's what I thought. There's been a lot of same-day uploads. I did two one day but I asked Carrie Ann before I did it. Just want to be sure that I didn't miss something

Wow, I was totally unaware of any of this. Since I've been coming back on more I was considering doing a video review for a few things, but man, a lot has changed in the month that I've been locked away in the hospital!

Ok, I'm just starting video reviews. This is helpful.

But question on the upload process. Why do I keep getting a 'unexpected server response, please try again'? Is that common? I'm on my second video, the first took probably half an hour of this game before it would upload. the second is looking to repeat that as well..

That could be a connection error on your end, make sure you aren't downloading anything when you try to upload.

Otherwise check the format and size. You could get upload errors if the format is incompatible or the size is too big. To be fair though, the upload server isn't the fastest and even my smaller videos have taken a pretty long time to upload.
