Self Embedding Video
I was posting on a competing site (shame on me for looking at LOP) the other day, and I just pasted a you tube URL into my text and to my surprise,
the video was had self embedded once posted. I thought this was an awesome feature if storage space is not a problem. Even though I could embed the
video into a post, I never do. Mostly cause I am to lazy, but some folks just don't care to learn how.
I really like this feature, as it serves the users with a preview, and the ability to stay on site (ATS should want that, since people can drift away
once they hit the Youtube site). Think about this: One guy writes this code, one time, now every user posting a video benefits every time, the viewer
benefits, and ATS keeps us on this site which would seem to be good for ATS.
Page Selection Location
When I surf ATS, I use the recent posts as my starting point. When I get to the bottom of page one, there is no area to select page two, and I must
scroll to the top of the page to advance my search. What a PITA! Why? If it is to keep me on page one, I guess it kind of works, since I have to scan
the most recent updates on my way up the list. I just can't see how having a next page option at the bottom of the page would be bad for business.
Please explain why a site that has been designed so very well in other areas, is lacking this normal page progression feature seen on almost every
other site on earth.
Sorry if this is old hat, but I did not find it searching.
