Video review enhancements

Posted by ,

It's a quiet week for news, isn't it, so it's just as well I have the video reviews features to bore tell you about :-)

There are now over 1800 review links in the database, including over 220 by Artifex Creations, whose reviews are highly regarded by many.

To make it even easier to find and watch the videos, I've created an Index of video producers page, which lists all producers, a random video review, and a list of recently added reviews. The links on the page lead to an index of reviews by the producer, grouped by theme. Click on the image for an example.

The next job is to provide better link management tools for link submitters.

Excellent! So far, I was used to somewhat ignor the video reviews on youtube. I am sure I will use this feature quite a lot.

They are somewhat buried away over there, aren't they, and you had to go out of your way to view them. Now, hopefully, they are easily found and watched.

My review index pages might not be as fancy and attractive as those at YouTube, but they are a much easier to use!

Huw, maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but do you have Francisco Prieto's 3D stop-motion assembly of 10179 and 10143?

Here's 10179:

Thank you, this really adds a lot to this site. I use video reviews to get a better idea about sets and how they are constructed before purchase. Keep up the good work Huw.

Great features! I would love to see a featured reviews article or tab for the video reviews, and it could be updated weekly! :)

I cannot see how to add video reviews! Am I being silly? I can't see a form on the video reviews page.

^ There's a block on users who have just joined from posting them to prevent drive-by spamming. I've tweaked your join date to bypass it so you should now see the form.
