    So I checked the forum rules and it doesn't seem to cover Youtube vids...

    What is the stance on advertising (for example)
    I release a new vid and want to show this one
    to the Temp (since it's a big one).

    What are the rules for that?

    Behind you
    I'm pretty sure you have to ask the mods if you want to advertise something.
    But maybe if you post a blog about your new video...?

    showing your work and advertising is two different things.

    If you create a video (direct it/shoot it/edit it/etc.) and want to show it as a work of art, then either the art section or your blog is fine.
    the blog being even better I think, as you are not showing someone else's art, but your own work.


    If you think about putting a website link into a video, and posting that video to advertise your website, then no, you can't do that, blog or not!

    It's all about the video content.

    If the point is to show the video, that's cool.

    If the point of you posting the video is to get us to subscribe so you can reach a certain goal or to get us to click referral links or visit your website or something for rewards, that's not cool.

    The focus should be the viewing of the video.

    Not sure why you seemed to suggest that the Art section is for art that isn't even your own.

    well, you are right [​IMG]
    if it's a movie/animation, it's better in Art.

    I thought blog was more appropriate to show something he want to "advertise" (I'm still wondering what will be the content).
