Video Vlogs and Videos

We are seeing an increasing number of youtube videos and other vlogs being posted on the DIBB. Videos come under our normal rules and are subject to rules like no self promotion or soliciting likes or subscriptions. Just to clarify things we have altered our site rules to cover videos and Vlogs separately.

As with a lot of people we at the DIBB love to see videos and vlogs and we don't want to discourage people from showing off their creations. However anyone wishing to post a video or vlog must do so under our guidelines otherwise we can't allow it on the DIBB.

1. Soliciting Likes, follows or Subscriptions within the video/vlog or it's description and comments should be avoided. We see this as begging and self promotion. We believe that if people want to like, follow or subscribe they will do so of their own accord and not because the author has begged or encouraged them to do so.

2. Please do not link to a channel. Videos should be embedded in to the posts on the DIBB rather than being linked to as this creates a better experience for DIBB users. There are instructions HERE.

Please note that we try to be fair when applying our rules and sometimes we need to make a decision based on our view of a particular post. This can lead to a post being removed when a similar post is left. Unfortunately not everything is black and white and we will apply discretion as needed.

If your video or Vlog is posted genuinely to share with others then there shouldn't be an issue, but if your video or vlog is seen as being posted as a way of increasing views etc, to your channel then it will be removed.
