(text) vs. (vid link) flags for Rubber Room items?

21 posts in this topic

A request, which you may think is rubbish. Some/many of us can't view video links at work, but it's nice to browse the odd (written) joke.

Also, you may want to glance at a funny text item as a brief distraction but haven't necessarily got time to open up a new window, sit through a video which might be 5 minutes long before the punchline, etc.

Thing is that the ratio of videos to jokes is about 80:20 these days, and I've just trawled half a dozen Rubber Room items, all video links, before coming across a written 'funny', so it would be nice to be able to spot which is which.

Would it be reasonable to flag them in title, e.g. "This is funny (vid)"... "joke (txt)" ... ?

This is more about format than content, so it's separate to the Work Warning things which people already do.

Or am I being stupid?

I'd certainly appreciate it if people did this - however i'm not sure people would remember....

Seems like a sensible request, I can't view YouTube from work either. Maybe if people don't remember, the mods could change the title too.

Same here, theyve just upgraded our system and locked out playing of video content and the use of popular sites like facebook (which i dont use), bebo, etc etc.

If they lock me out of Tyresmoke i'll be rather miffed! SAUER0421.GIF

Some good old written funnies would be a nice change 169144-ok.gif

I know this is an old thread and request but could I bump it please?

YouTube et al get flagged as "blocked" at our site and >3 "blocks" per user per some timeframe or other means they set the heavy on you....

I've just seen the OP of this thread. Name from the past.

Whatever happened to GCab?

I know he had a minor altercation with Mr "Troublecauser" Milo but I've not seen him on here for, well, yonks.

Last thing he said to me was, "If that Geordie tw4t's back, I'm off."

And I don't think he meant Milo.

:P

I can't recall having an altercation with him? :uhoh:

What did I say?

I'm sure I wouldn't have said anything to upset anyone. Ever. It's not in my nature you see....

And I'm sure GCab would know that Milo doesn't bear a grudge.

You need a memory to do that. :P

Oh, I bear a grudge all right :grin:

Just not with people who write stuff on the internets. My grudges are much more personal*

* though I've had to write them down in case I forget them.

Oh. I think I can remember it now. There was no malice, indeed GCab and I often joke about it over a game of bingo at the club on a Sunday.
