|: ► I wouldn't expect youtube to go away any time soon.
One just doesn't know. I don't expect this neither, now that they belong to Google. But I'm watching what's going on in the net since 20 years now and have seen a lot of changes.
: Though, videos on particular accounts might cease to exist if the user quits or gets banned (etc..), but couldn't the video link be replaced by the Admin.....namely you?
That's true and I agree that such a tricktionary is a good idea and I hope to start it soon.
: Besides, the problem that I have with pics is that it doesn't really show you the whole trick when it comes to something like a McTwist, or a fakie 360 to backside grind to 180 out.
It would be really great if someone could pull the key frames from the video and create an animated GIF. This could be stored inside the tricktionary and still convey the essentials.
: On the other hand, a video like Pauls tutorial multi angle clips of individual tricks is a great way to share tricks! We shouldn't lose these videos as these threads get buried in the archives. They should be saved to their own page.
Paul's vids are pure cold wrt documenting his tricks and sharing them in a way that can be studied.
