Hi all,

I have just noticed that the scavenger hunt item for "posts with a video" also counts all posts with a picture. For example, taken from my profile:

Create a post with an image (97/1)
Create a post with a youtube or vimeo video (98/1)

I'm pretty sure I have only posted a single Vimeo video, for a BB, yet the count seems to be that video plus all of the image posts!

I think that my "scavenger hunt" also ahs a bug.  I am pretty sure that I made a post with a youtube video in it a week or two ago, but it still says that I need one.  I'm not paranoid about finishing the scavenger hunt, but since I only have 2 things left to accomplish, and this being one of them, I thought I would ask.  
(on a side note, the other I need to complete is starting a few more threads... I could have made this a new post to get another thread... but I believe in keeping conversations threaded by topic, so I did not want to create an extraneous new thread when I could simply highjack this one that was about a similar topic)

Here is the post where I included a video:
https://permies.com/t/177596/Farming-extreme-cold

Just for clarification, it didn't have to be a video that I created, correct?  
Thank you for your help, Paul.  I appreciate this site.

Excellent observation!

This is fixed now!

Thomas,

The scavenger hunt task wants you to 'embed' the video. To embed a youtube video, you are supposed to surround the youtube address with [youtube][/youtube] tags.

For example:


This makes the video render on permies like this:



On your post, it seems that you had posted a link without the [youtube] tags, and someone in the staff has fixed it for you.

OK.  So, just to clarify:
Apparently I did not post the video in the correct format for the algorithms to count it.  
It is now in the correct format due to someone correcting it for me.
I don't remember how I entered the url for the video the first time.  

I'm going to try doing it correctly here:
I used the "youtube" button above this box in the editing window and entered the link from youtube, then hit "ok"
Before hitting submit, I am looking at my link and comparing it to the template you shared:

I attaching a screenshot of what I see, just in case it does not work.

Looks good to go.  My profile shows that I have now uploaded a video.  Thanks for providing assistance.
