On the previous Vimeo incarnation, users could flag clips that were unsuitable for Vimeo because they were copied from elsewhere on the internet. I have just found that some idiot has uploaded the crazy frog video onto Vimeo, and am frustrated that on the new Vimeo I can't flag it. Are there plans to resolve this?

.slgihtly off topic but kinda not..i saw the clip you speak of and was wondering where is that line drawn of what not to upload besides porn?..i mean i make all my own but some stuff i have found is like 10 people have the same clip cause they found it on the net yet none of them own it which totally bothers me..on the other hand some people might upload an old tv commercial that nobody has so where exactly is the line drawn?

I think it's quite simple. If you've copied the clip from elesewhere, then you shouldn't upload it. TV commercials, old or new, shouldn't be uploaded here. I'm sure that's the official Vimeo line.

Flagging is coming back. In the meantime, just message me a URL, like Gentry said.

Ok, Flagging is back. Please let me know if you have any trouble with it.

Also, only logged-in users can Flag, because in the past, spammers would use it.

Excellent, thanks Jakob. Now we no longer need any threads on these forums about unsuitable material.

Are you sure only logged-in users can flag?

Good stuff. This feature has always been kind of essential.

No more 'post links to unsuitable clips here' threads!

There actually isn't much getting flagged right now, but I'll appeal to you guys if it starts getting out of hand!

anyway i can ignore/dislike a user? For example if i wanted to get some clips by someone other than jakob on the front page?

i like jakob's videos. maybe, use another site.

very friendly i'm sure...

the idea isn't to stop YOU from seeing jakob's videos.. its to have a way for users to exclude videos they aren't interested in from those that are presented to them.

I'm fairly sure jakob wants the site to be more than just a personal thing for him and his contacts.
It wasn't meant as a comment on jakob's videos, and i'm sure he wont take it as such.

it's pretty random, i think. i don't want to see just clips from my users and their contacts. i can get those from my contact page. but i like the randomness of the home page because there are clips i wouldn't have otherwise seen or noticed, had they not been there.

i guess that could be an option, if you wanted it, tho.

soul, I understand you perfectly. In fact, sometimes a user who I have no interest in will be recommended to me repeatedly, and it annoys me.

My point is that I agree with you, and the next version of the home page will address this issue. We want to preserve the excitement of stumbling across new clips, but we also want you to remain in control.
