Topic Wiki

If your video is not embedding, see if your link starts with "https" - if it does, change it to "http" and it will work.

If a video isn't embedded you should assume it may be inappropriate for some people.

How do I embed a Youtube video?
Click the "youtube" button on the second row on the furthermost left side.
You will now have the words: [youtube][/youtube] in your editor.
Now, copy and paste the youtube video id (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&x=y) in between the middle brackets in order for it to look like this:
    [youtube]oHg5SJYRHA0[/youtube]
and leave out this part of the link: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v="

Or you can paste the you tube link, highlight it, and then click on the "YouTube" button. this will encase the link in the youtube tags,
Now just click "post" and you're done!



How can I search if a video has been posted here before?
This is not foolproof, but it's a good start.
Search for the youtube ID (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0)

AKA "The pre-scheduled spontaneous dancing"   ;D
(though I'm told there was some spontaneousness there this year)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

A better question might be if this is true or this was all made up after the fact after these were added for stylistic/fashion purposes.

I've heard it before. Never seen anyone actually do it though.

Why would you add that for stylistic purposes? The button thing at the end I can understand, but that can be permanently affixed in place, it doesn't need an elastic cord holding it.

Who knows. Why would you add a ribbon and bow?

Same here.
I'm not saying it's not true, I don't know either way. It just seems to me like the type of thing that was made up after the fact.

But it explains 2 different 'phenomena' - the string on the hat and the slot in the jacket lapel. Hard to chalk them both up to fashion.

Yes
+1 Although not sure if it's actually true. We used to do it in school, and out hats never quite looked the same after. Not recommended.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

I'm more intrigued by the fact that that's what the button holes are for, than some mysterious elastic cord on the hat.

I actually did. My father taught me that when I was a child.
