No offense, but this is unbelievably ugly. Plus, we've been using this template for these purposes. Click What Links Here to see it in action. Any such template should not stand out on the page. —Scott (talk) 17:00, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
- I tend to agree. The link to the Web Video Player can just be entered manually. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 18:33, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
- Yeah, I just used template:sketchrelease on Super Grover and it works fine. As for sketches that have their own page, we can note that they were released under a Video header like we do for song pages. However, I don't think we need to do it for every little thing. For example, "Do De Rubber Duck" is so readily available, I think home video releases trump online clips. But I think it's particularly helpful for rare Herry skecthes or something. —Scott (talk) 23:10, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
- It seems like a hard decision on whether to not put this note on sketches that are commercially available. On one hand, it might prevent people from wanting to buy the DVD releases, but on the other hand, Sesame Workshop has chosen to include clips that are currently commercially available. Sesame Workshop didn't have to pick stuff that can currently be found on DVD. I think this site also has more clips found on the recent Old School: Volume 2 than on Old School: Volume 1. --Minor muppetz 00:28, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
- I don't think that's the issue, so much as it's simply unnecessary clutter with ubiquitous material, and as noted with YouTube, it's not our duty to direct people to easily found clips, anymore than it is to provide Amazon.com links to DVDs. On the other hand, if the clip in question is only available there and was used to provide the information (or only there and YouTube, and right now the Sesame website seems far more likely to keep the clips up for a prolonged period), it should be noted, essentially acting as a source more than a "Go here to watch" notice. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 00:49, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
- What if a sketch has been altered since it's first airing, and one version is commercially available while the other isn't? For example, the celebrity version of "Put Down the Duckie" has been released on video twice, while the non-celebrity version hasn't (outside of a clip on one video), but the web video player has the original non-celebrity version. --Minor muppetz 15:08, 8 December 2007 (UTC)
