  • [ – ] CrazyRocky reply Nooooooo you beat me to it 😭😭 good video 😂
  • [ – ] iAmEnglishTV reply I mean in the end no one wants to see a group of or the same people always at the top. Especially when there ARE others out there with great content. They may not have alot of views or comments because they dont have exposure. So how do you fix this? Just keep making your content great. Lets not turn this into how YouTube promotes only their elite members who make them money. VidMe has to address this concern.
    • [ – ] Dos_Gaming parent reply The problem I have is that iI don't mind if I get to top or not buuuuuut at the same time I won't be seen unless I am there.
    • [ – ] Wolfer parent reply I agree, which is why it makes sense to utilize the new section effectively. I mean, if there wasn't a new section on vidme's website, these results would make a lot more sense. But at that point, you think the hot section would be called spotlight or something similar...not how like trending on Youtube.
  • [ – ] KingFredrickVI reply Maybe one day we'll find out lol
  • [ – ] galwaybeard reply Nice vid man. I felt so priveliged to make the hot list today, but maybe.... thats not such a big deal after all? Learning lots, as i'm pretty new here. Feel like there is so much potential for this site if they play their cards right.
    • Wolfer parent reply I still think it's a big deal. I think everyone should be proud! ^_^ Just think a few things need to be changed here and there.
  • [ – ] Watersurf reply The hot feed is based on how hot you actually are ya silly. Like I'm a 1, that's why I'm never on the hot page but you, you are most likely a 9 or a 10 since you are on the front page. Glad I could help. ;3
  • Spinel reply I think the hot section isn't as bad as you think and I don't saying that your opinion is wrong in anyway but i want you to see it as my point of view, i started as creator this year and when i upload my vids on youtube i technically nonexistence because i don't even appear in recommendations or anything, plus my content is in Spanish, so i wish somebody would give me a little exposure on their ''content creators'' platform. No because i deserve it but because somebody think that my vids are good enough to get some exposure even though i get like 2 views in those. it helps me because Youtube at this point doesn't do anything to help the new creators to grow in any way and in vidme all the big guys from youtube that comes to the site get technically a free pass on the hot page so that leave us the ''little guys'' almost in the same position as we were on youtube, so i glad that somebody is willing give us a little push, to feel like our vids are important to the site too and not just th...moree already famous creators ones. That's what i think. BTW my video never reach the hot page but one day maybe.
  • [ – ] MarzieMalfoy reply You do bring up great points. I always wondered that too. Glad you're on top of it :)
  • [ – ] UnarmoredForce reply The New section is a bit of a mess with all the simultaneous uploads and the need to scroll forever to find an inviting thumbnail. Let alone having to trudge through some slightly disturbing thumbnails as well. The way I've found new videos to watch has been either through the Hot page or by simply searching for tags that interest me. I guess it's a work in progress. You bring up interesting points, I didn't really pay attention to the upvotes, comments and views that some videos on the front page have.
    • [ – ] Wolfer parent reply Yeah, I probably really shouldn't worry about it lol just feel bad for the people with really high engagement that are under people with really low engagement.
      • [ – ] UnarmoredForce parent reply I guess there could be some solutions to fix it and I'm sure vidme is working on them. At the same time I welcome new videos on the Hot page as some just stay up there even though they've outlived their relevancy and their pushing down up n' coming videos with a decent amount of engagement. Even thinking of designing a working algorithm feels like a nightmare! :D
  • [ – ] MysticSword reply You raise some good points. I noticed that some of my vids with more upvotes & comments were either well below or not showing at all on the Hot pages (either on main Trending page, which certain Creators so seem to be on a lot, or the Hot pages for a category). But I'm guessing VidMe is trying to give a mix / variety of videos that get a turn in the spotlight and not just a select few Creators that get their videos frequently dominating the pages (though it doesn't always seem the case sometimes). Ok, keep up the good work. "Meow!" :)
    • [ – ] Wolfer parent reply The variety/mixture should be there, sure, but isn't that why we have both a Hot and New section? o.o
  • [ – ] Tannimay reply It's kinda hot!!!
  • [ – ] ShinyBigBoo reply I think the obvious answer is to make more tabs! Customizable tabs! More frequent tab refreshes!! And a "Return Home" button for the app, god I need that so bad.
  • [ – ] Rawman reply Hahaha damn! Believe it or not i actually had this theory from a while ago but didn't wanna say anything to not upset anyone haha. Glad vidme got back to you but it's extremely vague.
  • [ – ] zugzs reply Hmm so it seems like vloggers get more recognition than gamers, or maybe I just haven't been looking at the right videos. What are your thoughts on this?
  • jonnyboy06 reply Your vid. Is nic
  • Chaos reply Good video!
  • [ – ] FreshTechTV reply LMAO praise be to Duffy! 🙌
  • [ – ] FossilBossTV reply this is on the on the hot
  • [ – ] Rayman327 reply Glad to see someone noticed, personally I think creators with the most views/comments should be on the hot list, but then again you want to expose new content creators. Like someone else stated you don't want to see the same creators on the hot list for weeks and months. It's a slippery slope, you're not going to please everyone.
  • [ – ] Dos_Gaming reply Yeah... I just make videos and sometimes they go up sometimes they get a bunch of likes but still behind people with 1 or 2 likes. It does confuse me.
  • [ – ] bunniiBGG reply yea i was wondering about this too.. hmm cool vid :D
  • [ – ] MadPirate reply One day I will make it to hot list.... If I could ever get verified.
  • [ – ] HeroicVillain reply Holy Wendy toots pube blender! You've uncovered my scheme to meddle with the powers that be at vid.me and force all the most unnoticed videos to the hot page, but no matter. Soon, I will fulfill my evil master plan to melt Greenland and frame Iceland for it. Soon, my minion army of shaved chihuahuas wearing fedoras will crush my rivals in the south pole who have cleverly been operating under the front organization Happy Feet International. If only @PieAndLove hadn't uncovered THAT plan too. What have you all done? Penguins will overrun the earth. You could have had a benevolent toad overlord, but now we're all doomed. Just look what happened to @soops https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uv8gmTx7CFo
  • JimGiant reply I suspect there is a slight bias towards new users to give them a little bit of a chance. They try to vary the categories too so if there are very few recent videos in a category and you upload one it'll have a higher chance to appear in Hot.
  • [ – ] EmanWazz reply I always assumed it was just the highest viewed and rated videos of the day or something like that.
  • [ – ] Directionally_Challenged reply It kind of is fair, just based on the, if they don't continue to get upvotes/views they drop down in the hot section.
    • [ – ] Wolfer parent reply So one example I'll give that is currently on the Hot Feed is the video Is this the "Best Joker Death?" (https://vid.me/ntTz) from @channelawesome - Currently, his video is sitting one 176 upvotes, 229 shares, 40k views and 36 comments. His video is just under 3 videos also on the hot feed: "I am now a vidme exclusive creator + upload schedule" - 4 upvotes, 0 shares, 30 views and 2 comments. "Why Gamestop Sucks" - 3 upvotes, 0 shares, 10 views, and 0 comments "Puyo Puyo Tetris Only on Vidme I'm grateful For This Community" - 8 upvotes, 1 share, 42 views, 8 comments These videos are above @channelawesome's video that has an incredible engagement rate whereas these have almost none...how is that fair? o.o
      • [ – ] Directionally_Challenged parent reply it's also been up there for a few days though.
        • [ – ] Wolfer parent reply All the more reason for it to be high on the list because it is STILL creating meaningful engagement....I just think the New section is being underutilized and the hot section is being over-utilized lol
          • Directionally_Challenged parent reply Eh, Vidme wants to allow multiple people the option. The New tab is more of what's been posted recently. The Hot tab is what has managed to get a good % of upvote to views or something along that line. If it worked how you're explaining it, you'd never appear on the hot page, most of us wouldn't. It'd be entirely dominated by the big youtubers that came over or the big vidme people. Sure, you already typically see the same people, but just imagine, if all you saw was like 10 video's by channel awesome? It'd be kind of blah. It's got it's faults, but I think at least Vidme is trying and it's not too bad as it is, because, while there may be the odd small video trending, it's pretty rare from what I've seen.
  • [ – ] BenjiJames reply I think i get where you're coming from, but in response to this video, you're being pretty vague too, dude. Challenging, questioning, and debating issues of all kinds, even when they possibly pertain to other creators, is a good thing, because that brings in more questions and builds a dialogue. But in order for that dialogue to begin, you need to be a little bit more transparent and not so safe throughout your video. I have problems with how certain platforms and systems work too, but i simply work harder and try my best :) If people wana see my content and like it, cool as. If not, no problemo. I've put out a ton of videos both on YouTube and on Vidme and i've hardly gotten any attention whatsoever, neither do i have barely any followers or subscribers over the 4+ year time span i've been creating content online, but i'm alright with that, because it pushes me to try my ass off just that little bit more :)
    • [ – ] Wolfer parent reply Kinda have to be vague in this situation when when I don't have any answers on this issue and am only asking "what's up with that" lol I'm not gonna start pulling answers from thin air just to make my video "more transparent" here or like I know what I'm talking about on this topic - I value this community more than that and simply was wondering what their thoughts were on the hot section...that's all. More to your point though, I think exposure is amazing, for everyone and I'm grateful for Vidme's algorithms for that. I just think with new content and new video that don't have a lot of engagement, that's what the new section is for and than they can be moved to the hot section once that higher engagement is made and then just keep raising the bar from there so people keep creating quality content and then being on the hot section be a big deal ^_^
      • [ – ] BenjiJames parent reply Hmmm... Good points. I tip my fedora to you, good sir
        • Wolfer parent reply And to you! Watching you're videos, you gotta sound mind so I really value your opinion on these topics and promise never treat you like you don't know what you're talking about if ever you comment on videos like this...aka content creator politics...though I'm let's player so I really have no business putting my foot in these doors LOL
  • [ – ] iAmEnglishTV reply Makes sense but exposure is important for everyone. If someone who gets on the hot section get exposure and others see the content sucks, then its ok and people probably won't watch anything else they put out.
    • [ – ] BenjiJames parent reply But wouldn't that be an issue? People can have good and bay days - days with good content and other days with ok/bad stuff. Besides, isn't whether a content is good or bad, subjective? Hmmm... but interesting comment, for sure. Definitely has me questioning a few things for the future.
      • Wolfer parent reply What the makes the most sense, in my opinion, is that the moment a video is uploaded it's placed in the new section...thereafter, if it develops traction and creates engagement it can move into the hot section...simple! ^_^
  • [ – ] CountLoliDee reply I wouldn't mind being on the hot category being as small as I am. Maybe they are trying to blend in some lower views to get more?
    • [ – ] Wolfer parent reply That's what it seems like...I don't think it's a bad thing, I'm just wondering if it can be tweaked a bit so the videos with like 100 upvotes in day are the ones with 1 or 2 in a day lol
