Sorting out our differences

Shouldn't the description be "We checked into a new motel and haven't seen any Watchers... it's actually been kinda boring."? --Jonpro

Maybe you have just not looked deep enough:)--modelmotion 14:47, 21 November 2006 (CST)

That's odd, the Revver video has a different description. This has always bothered me in general: what to do with differences between the sites when they arise. --Brucker 14:44, 21 November 2006 (CST)

Life does get complicated when we try to simplify it.....sometimes it just defies categorization--modelmotion 14:47, 21 November 2006 (CST)
ok how about this.....just pick one consistent source and then put any deviations into the notes at the bottom.--modelmotion 14:48, 21 November 2006 (CST)

That sounds good, modelmotion. Which source should we use for the main description, Revver or

Thats a judgement call. Personally I would use the info because its owned by the creators. However I am sure others might say that Revver is more important because it contributes to the revenue flow. But then again, LG now had google ads so you would have to ask the bean counters which is more significant. I say, keep it simple and go with the LG info with Revver in the notes.--modelmotion 15:42, 21 November 2006 (CST)
Huh? It's not LG15 vs. Revver, but LG15 vs. YouTube. LG15 videos should be the same as Revver, since they're stored on Revver. There are a number of places where differences can be found, too. I recall that the Swimming! video is longer on Revver, and it was decided to go with the full version, adding notes to the bottom as to what had been cut out of the YouTube version. While I think that's a good general guideline (i.e. using all available information for the transcript and noting parts edited out in other versions) it might be of interest to set a guideline for non-transcript issues, such as tags (the Revver videos have tags, but not as many as the YouTube ones), descriptions, and the handful of videos that are only on YouTube. --Brucker 16:00, 21 November 2006 (CST)
