    Sometimes the users either take them down or have them taken down by the Evil Empire.

    Are they still active on YouTube?

    Yes. As you can see on the threads, the whole thing doesn't show up at all. When quoted by others, you can see the URLs, but the YT boxes themselves are missing. Whole pages without my YT videos (while others are still there). :confused:

    Looks like you're the only one with the problem. User Error? (just kidding)

    I just copy/paste the entire URL and I haven't had a problem

    Alan, hit the refresh key on your computer. That sometimes shows stuff that doesn't seem to be there the first time. In the meantime, put "tips on speeding up your computer" in your search engine or get Foxfire (no charge) and follow their suggestions for better loading.

    Often in quoted posts all that does remain is the url, rather than the whole YT screen.

    But I don't know what to make of your particular problem.

    PM cereal_killer and ask him about it.

    As of May, everything posted and remained viewable.

    It's like a mod deleted any kind of link I had from a certain time frame, and I rarely posted links except to YT videos, but I had no notifications on the matter.

    I'm not sure I want to post any more video links if they disappear on me.

    T'is a mystery.
