    Right up front, I want to mention something I'd appreciate for this thread:

    Please do not bring up any of the bloody Youtube drama, and please do not try to start new lousy effing ludicrous Youtube drama. This pleasant magenta hue will help you feel pleased and happy, in order to further this goal.

    Please impress the grand social experiment of the internet by keeping this thread civil and devoid of the hilariously over-the-top video arguments that love to crop up.

    As I said in the supplemental itself, nobody is being negatively singled out in our podcastian discussion, nor are any of us trying to make anyone feel bad. Quite the contrary.

    My apologies for all these forewarnings, but it's been my experience that they may be necessary in this particular context. ;)

    But the larger font size makes me feel defensive and argumentative.

    Here is that mag spread I was talking about in this supplemental. It's not the whole article, but it's cool nonetheless. It's worth finding a copy of the mag to read the whole article. Click "all sizes" to see a readable size.

    It should be the April 2008 issue.

    Well Spoken, guys!

    I think GogDog pretty much nailed it.

    I like some of the Youtube reviews to get an idea of the toy, but, I also like photo galleries of course, and I really do believe they should/can coexist in peace.

    Good supplement. I feel there is room for both in the world. I sometimes look to video reviews for transformation sequence if I can't seem to get it right. I do feel some video reviews go on for a bit too long. I love pic reviews for seeing the toy in dynamic poses and close up shots.

    I don't really see how one is more objective/subjective than the other.
    Both are controlled by the ones shooting/filming them.

    Exactly, but the YouTube vids are generally more of a review, which is mostly opinion (subjective) where a picture gallery is just an image and lets the user decide without the added opinion (objective). I am not saying that the entire video format is subjective itself, just that the implementation of it, for the most part on YouTube, is very much so. And nor do I think that is necessarily a bad thing, as that's usually why people watch the reviews for (I think, anyway) is to hear others' opinions. Of course, a video that simply details the transformation without an added opinion would be objective as well.

    Of course, a picture review can be subjective as well, but the review as a whole (words added to the raw gallery) transcends the basic format of the picture. I would say that a picture gallery by itself is almost always objective.

    So yeah, it's just my opinion of the two general implementations of the formats.

    All though funny, playing the "off mic" bit where I was asking they you make sure not to skip over me makes when I do talk in my trying to hide that I have a sore throat broken and even speaking that just ends up being a rambling reiteration of what was already said even more pathetic.

    :)  I like. Although height I think is limited to 300 pixels, so you might want to resize it a bit.

    If there was a prize you would win it, but it wouldn't be a very big prize because you used Gog's sig and not one of mine. :p
