❖ Submission Rules

You want to upload some videos? We love that! After all, uploading short flicks to Playflick is one of the five greatest things you can do in the world. First, there are some rules to follow. We know, everyone hates rules, but they exist to keep Playflick from devolving into chaos and becoming another "business horror story". So here you go (take notes, we'll be testing you later):

❖ No cloning allowed. No, we're not talking about producing identical sheep in the lab - that's cool. We're talking about duplicating videos that already exist on the site. We HATE duplicates, because repetition repetition sucks sucks. So before you upload a video to Playflick, please conduct a search to see if it already exists.

❖ Ten is enough. No, we're not talking about that cheesy TV show from the Seventies. We're talking about the length in time of your video: keep it around 10 minutes. Anything longer than that may be removed automatically by our system.

❖ Keep your pants on. We're not prudes here, but we want Playflick to serve as wide a community as possible. This means we will not allow sexually explicit videos on the site. Those are simply 2H4P (Too Hot For Playflick).

❖ What about partial nudity or implied sexuality? We're not afraid of the odd 'wardrobe malfunction' but it's better to practice safe sex and put an 18+ filter on it during the upload. Easy Peesy...

❖ Filter that violence. Please remember that Playflick is all about entertainment and entertainment should not come at the expense of others. So if your video contains violence, please select 18+ during the upload:
18+: For real-world violence including physical attacks; for injuries, gruesome scenes, or explicit language.
Playflick will reject videos which portray illegal acts of violence or videos that show or imply human fatalities however newsworthy such footage may seem in context.

❖ NO CLICK BAIT. Package your videos with killer titles, descriptions, thumbnails, and tags to attract viewers. But, please, be accurate, ... or we'll tell all the people you deceived exactly where you sleep!

Irresistible Titles: What's in a name? Everything. Boring titles = no views, so give your video a title no one can resist.

Teaser Descriptions: Don't you hate it when someone tells you the surprise ending of a movie before you've seen it? ("Dude, did you hear that Darth Vader is Luke's dad?") So go ahead and describe the contents of your video in vivid detail, but don't give away the punch line.

Eye-Catching Thumbnails: Pick an image from your video that accurately represents its contents and grabs attention. But if it's something gross, don't show it - we like to eat while browsing please.

Tag Away: Use as many tags as you want to describe your video. That helps people find it in a search.

Pick a Category. If your video fits more than one category, choose the one that applies most. Still can't decide? Take a coin, assign one category to heads, one category to tails, then flip it. Later, see a counsellor about how you let coins shape your life.

❖ Playflick House Rules

Playflick is for a creative community buzzing with energy. (We love a great buzz.) So we've established a few house rules to keep it going:

Helpful Criticism: Want better videos? Then provide suggestions instead of smack! Good advice goes a long way, and if you think you can do better, don't just say it - SHOW IT with your own videos.

Save The Creativity For The Videos: Don't try to sneak onto top lists by manipulating the results. For example, posting lots of comments on your own video to get onto the "Most Discussed" list won't get you anywhere. (We've got trained dogs to sniff out cheats.)

Keep It Clean: There are 1,000,000 words in the English language alone, including some cool ones like "poopoo," "weewee," and "bumbum." LOL, Flaunt your language skills here, and leave the silly profanity alone.

No Haters: Our community has zero tolerance for intolerance, so no defamatory, racist, sexist or homophobic talk. This includes threats of violence or sexual assault against other site users or people appearing in videos. Offenders will be banned forever from Playflick.

We hate playing cops - it takes time away from watching videos and building a killer site - so we hope this little statement does the job of keeping Playflick going and growing...

Thanks' Guys & Girls,
