I get no votes all the time. As long as my score passes, I could care less. Its not like the overall Legit rating has any meaning after that JoshGamerDude or whatever came in and drive everyones rating down. Dont be angry and leave just because of a few no votes that dont even affect your scores passing. If you find that you are getting more than one or two no votes on every score and that bugs you, perhaps an examination of how you are submitting is in order. Thats what I did when I first got here and now I get the usual one or two no votes and my scores pass. Hell... no voters actually help get scores passed quicker, and the trolls probably dont even realize it LOL

Yes, of course you are right, but threre are 4 No-votes. That can not be everything "trolls" . I can not understand this jealousy and malice... In the past these problems were not here...

@atari2600forever: That would depend on how far back you define "the past", because as far as I can tell based on the forums, this site has had no-voting "issues" for many years now ... like ... years-in-a-row. I'm not quite so sure it is jealously, at least in my case, because typically the voter will indicate why they voted no, sometimes right in the comments section. For example: I submitted scores where I didnt have my name or initials in my video, and quite a few people voted no because of that, EVEN THOUGH MY FACE WAS IN THE VIDEO TALKING LOL! In my personal opinion, that is literally the dumbest ass requirement I have ever seen in my entire life. Instead of getting upset at a good portion of the community, I looked inward and examined what I could do to avoid all the NO votes, no matter how absurdly retarded and useless as putting initials on a piece of paper in the evidence is, as if doing that actually means something or as if it means the score is more legitimate. But it is what it is, and if the objective is to not get no votes, I did what it took to stop it from happening. Even so, every score I submit has video showing hardware, all game play, settings, my name, with tye final score clear and readable and I even include timestamps in the comments for every score ... and I *still* get no votes ... but I do get enough yes votes to have them pass, which is the entire goal, no?

... on a final note, from what I have been told by other members in confidence (so I won't be revealing all of their names) the prevailing philosophy has now become this: if gamers can afford a dozen game systems and hundreds if not thousands of games, they can afford a $10 webcam to record video ... and I have to be honest, they make a good point. With regard to the whole "but that takes more time and hassle!", well ... so does taking extra time to do useless, retarded, stupid steps like adding names and/or initials to tye evidence, but yet we do it. Something to think about ;-) As for me, I hope you stay. There arent too many Atari2600 fans left any more and its good to have company.

Good Evidence: ich hab das erste Mal ein Video gemachtsmiley-hoffentlich wird dann nicht mehr mit NO gevoted! Wie kann ich es am einfachsten und schnellsten hochladen? Ich bin allerdings nicht so sehr gut begabt am Rechner...indecision

Ja, ein Video ist auf jeden Fall besser als ein Foto! Ich wünschte nur, dass bei kleinen Scores auch mal ein Foto reichen würde. Aber das bringt ja jetzt leider immer gleich 2-3 no votes!

Ich glaube, bei Video funktioniert hier nur YouTube. Das Hochladen ist ganz einfach, sobald du dich bei YouTube angemeldet und deine Kamera mit dem Computer verbunden hast. Am schnellsten lädst du das Video hoch, wenn du es nicht gleich in HD aufnimmst. Ich hab das mal mit mittlerer Auflösung (SD) versucht und das klappt ganz gut. Melde dich einfach, wenn du weitere Fragen hast! :-)

Danke für deine Antwort- ich hab schon das Video bei Youtube hochgeladen-aber wie geht es dann weiter? Was muß ich bei Highscore in das freie Feld tippen?

Ach so, klar! Nicht den Link, den YouTube anbietet, sondern die Internetadresse des Videos aus der Adresszeile des Browserfensters!

Warum braucht man denn ein Video? Hier geht es doch nur um den Spaß und die Ehre.

Die Zeit für ein Video habe ich nicht.

Ich bin nicht einer dieser Puristen, die nach einem Video für jede Partitur fragen! Und ich denke immer noch, dass ein Foto mit Identifikation für eine kleine Partitur (erster Platz oder nicht) ausreicht.
Allerdings habe ich in letzter Zeit bei einigen meiner Ergebnisse mit 7/8 Stimmen Nein gesagt.
Seitdem ich ein Video darauf gebrannt habe, fühlt es sich besser an. 
Einige Spieler machen "Video-Lobbying", um zu versuchen, die Regeln der Plattform gewaltsam zu ändern und so ein Video für alle Partituren durchzusetzen!
Es ist eine echte Schande für diejenigen, die hierher gekommen sind, um Spaß zu haben.

Yes here yes

Is it just about fun and honor, though? If that's the case, then why the all the complaining about no votes if it were "just for fun an honor"? If it's "just for fun and honor", then why would anyone care if their score is rejected? 

Regarding "lobbying for stricter rules": I don't think I've seen anyone lobbying for *any* rules, much less stricter ones. I have, however, seen quite a few people simply convey that it may be helpful to those who are complaining about all of the no votes they're getting on their photos to submit a video, too, which would all but eliminate the thing they're complaining about. Serious has clearly indicated that there *aren't even any rules*. There is no "rule" to include your name and initials in the evidence, either, however, it appears as though that is something the voters look for in order to vote yes on a score. Things evolve, and apparently looking for video in order to earn a yes vote from some people are part of that evolution. Other people literally only trying to HELP by suggusting you include video to facilitate getting YOUR scores passed (not their scores, but YOURS) is not "bullying". What *is* bullying, however, is all these attempts to gaslight, insult, and manipulate other people into voting on your scores based on YOUR standards, not theirs .. .and I'm sorry, but that's not how a voting process works. As for me, I personally don't care if it's a video or a photo ... the records on this site can in no way ever be construed as a serious, legitimate world record in any official capacity whatsoever, so I GET IT ... stringent rules and requirements would be pointless. But again, there aren't any rules anyway ... there is simply more people now that look for video in order to vote yes than there were before. I also get that it can be tough for players who for years had gotten used to scribbling some arbitrary number on a piece of toilet paper and having that accepted as legitimate by the community ... but communities evolve, and it looks like that is what has happened here. So instead of bullying voters into accepting what they consider your evidence to be as "substandard", how about simply taking the extra 15 seconds and simply do what it takes to get the yes votes and be done with it?

Lastly, Larquey ... I haven't seen you complain lately about no votes on your submissions. Why is that? I can bet it's because you did what it took to stop getting all the no votes and started including video on most of your submissions, yes? So if that was an easy enough transition process for you, why would you validate another gamer's complaint about no votes they're getting due only to him (up until now, I suppose) not doing what you felt you had to do, then did it, then the problem stopped?

Fascinating personalities on display here. Very peculiar, indeed. :-/

To answer your questions about adding YouTube videos to your scores, it is quite simple.

All of your YouTube videos have a serial number, so to speak. There are two different ways that YouTube generates the URL for you to "share" your video link. uses only one of them, and the other will not work.

This is the format that works when you are submitting your evidence on

This is the format that DOES NOT WORK:

Notice that the first one has "", but the second has "". That's the easiest way to spot the difference. At any rate, if you have difficulty copying and pasting the link into the YouTube link field when you are submitting your score, you can simply type "" and then add your serial number to the end of it after the "v=" part (the serial number in the example above is the "MXzDFroFvF0".

I hope this helps!
