YouTube Tag and Autoplay
We are aware of circumstances that allow users to post youtube videos with autoplay enabled. This is not intentional and we are working to overcome this annoyance. Despite attempts to ask nicely and even a filter put in place, people still feel the need to try and circumvent the system.

We're not going to disable youtube and ruin it for everyone, but anyone posting a youtube link with autoplay enabled after this announcement will meet with a 1 day ban for disrupting forum features.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

I was always annoyed at the random 'NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP, NEVER GONNA MAKE YOU CRY' that kept popping up in some of the random threads. :/

khyle 10-27-2008 09:33 PM

didnt know about autoplay features
i'll preview posting yt videos before posting them ^^;

NoeJeko 10-27-2008 09:46 PM

We have the normal way to make it autoplay censored - to make it autoplay now you must bypass this filter and I'll not explain how it's done.

Yes, posting YouTube videos is fine as long as they are not set to autoplay.

Kusuriuri 10-27-2008 09:50 PM

One less reason to live in fear of random now atleast o_O ha ha

moffit 10-27-2008 10:08 PM

erm, is there a certain way it's supposed to be posted? I've just been using the yt tag function x_x

Globalastro 10-27-2008 10:16 PM

i always just copied the video tag thingy from the url and posting it in {yt}...{/yt} which seems to not autoplay (for people who areworried about accidental autoplays..)

I really think that you have to modify the tag to do it, so people who are worried shouldnt have too much to worry about.. thankfully i can only access mmog from my cellphone which ignores youtube tags alogether lol

Yeah because I totally still do this :U

Don't worry about accidentally doing it >.> The staff wouldn't put you into a minefield and laugh sadistically as you try to find your way out. It requires effort to make them autoplay, so the people that still do it have deliberately bypassed filters to achieve this.

Autoplay Youtube in Spam = OK? :3

NoeJeko 10-28-2008 09:49 AM

Autoplay cannot be used - this includes the Random/guild forums.
