I've noticed over the years that more and more video links are being created and shared by TamaTalkers... These can be videos for stuff that is funny, music, video tama logs, unboxing videos, reviews and more. Initially, I was excited by media bbcodes in the upgraded software that let us display and watch the videos within the forum pages. The problem is I started wishing we could do more with these shared links. I wanted a place where people can stop by and find all the shared videos if they wanted to be entertained, informed or just kill some time. I wanted a way for people to share videos and have what they share show up on their profile page. I wanted people to be able to comment on and even rate these shared videos as well.
Well, now I think we have it!
I'm calling it TamaVision!
We're calling it TamaTube!
For launch I created five categories that reflect what I think are most commonly shared. These are:
- Tamagotchi Videos
The place to post all of your Tamagotchi related videos. Have an unboxing video? Want to show off what your tama is doing? Have something else Tamagotchi related to share? Post it here!
- Funny Videos
Share the funny stuff you see so others can enjoy some laughs
- Cute Videos
See something that makes you go 'Awwwww!'? Then it probably belongs here!
- Music Videos
Share your favorite music videos with others here!
- Everything Else
Want to share something that doesn't quite fit in the other categories? Post it here!
Since it is new things are a littl empty right now... That's where I need your help! Please go and add the best videos you have created or found online. I am hoping to have a nice collection of stuff for people to enjoy built up over time. Adding a video is easy! Just click the 'Add Video' button and enter at least a video title, pick a category, the url of the video at YouTube or loads of other video sites, and then maybe some info or comments about the video. These videos will then be available for others to enjoy and discuss. All of the videos you post will also show up on your profile under the Videos tab.
Think this could be useful and/or fun? Check it out!
OOPS! We also need to come up with a new name for this section! Please post your naming ideas over here
UPDATE The name TamaTube was selected by the community.
