Anyone agree there should be a weapon demonstration video in each weapon for Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas? It could look like one from the TF2 Wiki ( Using the Direct Hit for example)

I'd totally support that as long as the videos are up to a high quality standard. Limmiegirl Lildeneb Talk! ♪ 19:25, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

If we ever get that embedded video feature shoved up our...throats by Wikia, then perhaps this is the type of content that could be best used for that. The Gunny  380px-USMC-E7 svg 20:01, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
The embedded videos using <youtube></youtube> or the Related Videos module? I thought the RV was disabled on this wiki somehow. As it is I wish there was a way to restrict things with it on Megami Tensei wiki, the thing is impossible. :/ UserGreatMaraMessage 20:08, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
I agree, if we could keep them at a consistent, high standard, I think it could be a great feature.--Bunny2Bubble 20:09, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Yet this idea goes against the sites policy. So that needs to be addressed first. Personally, I am against it as such contributions are normally people show boating there play through, trying to get hits on there video, or just generally pissing around in the video to the point it isn't informative.

That's what I was afraid of as well GAV. But if the videos are standardized the same way pictures are (no HUD, no unnecessary character showing, etc) it could be useful for people who haven't played to get a feel of the gun. Limmiegirl Lildeneb Talk! ♪ 02:58, July 24, 2012 (UTC)

I have a good relationship with George (Lizzunchbox) at Wikia, he seems to understand our reluctance and standards on such a thing but also knows that Wikia wants to add more video stuff; this might be something they can help with in ensuring stuff is of a good quality? should I have a word and see what he thinks if people like.

With Related Videos, my understanding on that is that we have a "Stay of Execution" on that; we were slated to get it early, but Wikia backtracked due to a lot of unease here Agent c (talk) 20:43, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

As per GAv, unless there is a consistent provider of videos that do not contradict site policy, even in the least way, I am against it. --Skire (talk) 16:22, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
