  • [ – ] lambdog76 reply Anything that breaks the fourth wall potentially ruins a production. I go through phases where I don't mind, but that is probably the difference between the viewer in me and the producer in me. My pet peve is ebegging.
  • TheBigWhiteVan reply Whenever I hear "pet peeve", this Carlin bit plays in my head: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pQikwWGNnY On the linguistic front, I've noticed that "berserk button" has started to replace "pet peeve", which I think is a definite improvement (in terms of immediacy and accuracy in speech).
  • Roolooth reply I certainly agree with you, it makes it feel like they are just trying to fill time and make excuses from the start. Just post the take that is best and have done with it. If it's awful don't even post it but keep trying to achieve your aims. The main peeve for me is long introduction clips put at the start of each video, some of them go on for over 30 seconds before they get to the video itself. Luckily it's not such a problem on vidme (at the moment) but on YT it is something that I see a lot of.
  • Anonymous_Gamer reply Why would you say how many takes you did? Might as well leave all those bloopers in the video if your just gonna tell me! Let me see the fuck ups I might need a good laugh!
  • InternetUnwind reply Not gonna lie,I have been gulity of this in the past. I realized and now hate it myself, it always feels worse when they start the video with it.
  • [ – ] Y2JayDoesAsia reply LOL it's called "wasted broadcast time". When I was learning how to make radio commercials in 1997 we were taught to never ever waste broadcast time. Basically I don't follow/subscribe to people who waste broadcast time.
    • [ – ] MrJoelDee parent reply I know. It's so annoying. Just watched a video a bit ago from a YouTuber who came here to Vidme, The first minute or so was about how he was supposed to have made his video like 10 hours ago but he overslept. I thought why is this relevant? Stick to your subject, why you made the move from YT to Vidme.
      • [ – ] Y2JayDoesAsia parent reply Unfortunately this is the problem with "giving everybody a voice". It's a double edged sword. Giving everyone a voice (any online video platform) means people can express themselves any way they want, a fantastic form of freedom of speech. OTOH most of these people have no media/boradcast/filmmaking training. So they do a whole bunch of things they shouldn't, like waste broadcast time, make videos excessively long, engage in drama and other unethical behaviours, engage in slander, draw attention to the camera, and so on and so on.
