H.S.’s Quick Guide to Posting *UPDATED*


*** TO ALL POSTERS: REQUIRED READING ***

UPDATED on 08/23/2012. All future Editions will have the latest Revision Date at the top. 🙂

Hello, **ZIT**o, and hi friends, fans, new popheads and to all Popologists!!!

This is to help current posters brush up, and perhaps make things a bit easier. For new posters, it is essential that you master these tips and tricks. Since we have been growing at exponential rates, we have decided to redo some of the requirements for posting to allow for more equitable division of the “golden gems” that sometimes come in waves, and also hopefully make taking a post from submission approval to live publishing more streamlined!

Some of these changes may seem strange – I remain open to questions, ideas – anything to help improve our community enjoy more new videos than ever – every single day!

Just Pop It!

***************

BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

There are a few things to learn before you make your next post, or your first post, depending on how long you have been a member of PTZ. I will try and keep this simple and straightforward.

1. Any Post Submission that is not completely filled out according to the directions below may be denied or possibly p**ZIT**ed over for a properly completed form. Most of the time, it is 1st in is published. There are some exceptions, so please, try and be understanding.

2. These are things that cannot be posted to PopThatZit.com:
Nudity – female **ZIT**, male or female genitals, male or female behinds. The gray area? Some *ahem* **ZIT** cleavage or partial **ZIT**ocks may be acceptable – final decision does rest with PTZ Admins.

3. IMPORTANT! No more than TWO submissions PER DAY by any member. This will allow some of the newer members to have an opportunity to post videos that are sometimes scooped by PTZ’s more seasoned, experienced Video Miners. This hopefully will also reduce backlogs.

4. NO UPLOADS. Any post that contains uploaded videos or pictures may be subject to immediate rejection. All thumbnails are created by the Admins, and any video which requires uploading will be done by Admins to ensure appropriate file format and reduce any chance of viruses.

5. EXCLUSIVES: If you have a video which was made by you and you would like to submit it to PTZ for possible payment, and you have *not* previously posted it to YouTube, then contact Emilbus20, owner of PTZ, or H.S., PTZ Site Admin. You can do that by >>>CLICKING HERE<<< or e-mail H.S. at halph_staph@yahoo.com. We welcome member created videos!!! 🙂

6. Please, do not blast, criticize, make rude comments about, or in any way demean the subjects in the video you are submitting. There are ways of saying “The camerawork sucks” in a much kinder way… “The camerawork leaves a bit to be desired, but the amount of pus is clearly seen and well worth viewing.” Always try and compliment the video originators. Remember – without these people making videos, we’d have NOTHING to watch! So please be very respectful, so that they continue to make more videos, and furthermore, can be excited about their video being chosen to post on PTZ.

7. No HTML code, please. We have pre-defined codes we can use, so it helps to save time if you do not try and code it yourself. Most are trying to help, which is of course appreciated, but 99% of the time, your hard coding work is deleted. As is over quoted… “Just the facts…” 😉

How to Submit a Video

1. To get to the Submission Form, >>>CLICK HERE<<< (unless you already know how to navigate there. I have a slightly different Nav Bar, so this should avoid confusion)

2. What information you need in order to submit a video: The URL, the Original Name, the username of the Original Poster, the date it was first posted, the name of the site you got the video from.

3. Here is what you do with that info! Click on each picture for the Full Sized Version (or haul out your Granny readin’ gl**ZIT**es, I have mine!!!)

4. CATEGORIES

People tend to stumble when it comes to these Categories. However, it really is simpler than you may fear! The same thing goes for Tags in the next section.

For Categories, simply choose the one to three categories your video best fits in with.

For example, a cyst on the back of the neck treated at the hospital – you might check mark the following:

Cyst Video
“Neck Zit Video” (because we don’t have body part categories for cysts)
Surgical Procedure

5. TAGS

Tags **must include** at minimum these two items – ORIGINAL VIDEO NAME and ORIGINAL USERNAME of the poster as used on YouTube (or other video site).

This **ZIT**ists other posters by allowing someone to quickly browse the Pending list to see if a video they are considering submitting hasn’t already been submitted by someone else.

So if your YouTube video is called “Epic Huge World’s Biggest Pimple” and was put up by MissEverythingIsBiggest, then you would enter the following in the tag text box:

Epic Huge World’s Biggest Pimple, MissEverythingIsBiggest

If you are kind enough to fill in some more descriptive words, which is generally considered part of a complete submission, then remember, every tag word OR phrase needs to be separated by a comma. So… a complete Tags entry would look like this when typed in:

Epic Huge World’s Biggest Pimple, MissEverythingIsBiggest, pimple, pop, pus, leg, hairy leg, squirt, flying pus

**A small hint in choosing Tags – never use a single word like “pimple” more than three times on its own or in a phrase, like pus, squirting pus, **ZIT** pus BUT you can use pop and popping each three times. Just a handy dandy search engine trick – if a word is overused, they might consider it spam.**

This is what it should look like:

Guess what? You are DONE! Well, except for clicking on the **ZIT**on to Submit your completed form for Pending Review.

IMPORTANT!!!!

DO NOT fill in anything else on the form – especially the SEO Section. That is for staff to deal with.

This is what your completed and submitted post will look like in the Pending list – notice the information, and how easy it will be to scan and see if anyone else has beat you to that shiny gem of a pus post?

Some last tidbits and such to keep in mind:

1. Choose Wisely.
Don’t just go nuts submitting anything with a speck of pus. Truly think about what you would get excited about seeing. Try to keep submissions around 2-3 when there isn’t a huge backlog. Yes, sometimes you may have a 4th video, but if you find 15 in one night, Bookmark the ones you don’t submit and revisit them. LOL – You should see how HUGE my Bookmark file is!!!!

2. No Nudity!
No **ZIT**, frontal male or female genitalia, no full moon **ZIT**ocks and especially no **ZIT** orifices! Kids do watch, although we also encourage parents to check around them when visiting the site.

3. Warnings
If you are submitting something you feel may disturb some viewers, be it graphic surgery or animal oriented pus videos, you can include a gently worded Warning at the top, before you write your intro. But if you aren’t sure, you know that I or Emil will add one if necessary.

4. Loudness, Small children crying, Foul language
You may want to consider adding a “Mute might be advised” somewhere in the introduction/description, but it is not required.

5. Checking the Archives
ANY video posted with an originating date after January 13, 2011 can be found by doing a PTZ search using either the Original Title or Original Poster User Name. I have tried to make sure that this information is ALWAYS included, to avoid repeating videos. Also, prior to March 2010 on YouTube, you can sometimes click on the little graph under the video player on YouTube, and this will bring up statistics, which will usually show if a video has been posted to popthatzit.com or not.
But this is not foolproof. Try your best!

6. Multiple Videos – Series or Same Poster and Same/Similar Subject
You can submit several videos in one form. Just list the video URL’s in order oldest to newest. Even if there are 10 in the series, it is okay. This is better than submitting each one seperately – unless the second or third video hasn’t been released yet – but in that case if you submitted the first one, you can submit the “follow-up” in a new form, or request that I update the original posting

7. And Final, I promise! When your video is not accepted… I put the reason in parentheses in the Title text Box before your chosen **ZIT**le, and then it will be in the Trash folder.

HOW TO GET TO THE FOLDERS:
1. On the Main Page, in your top grey navigation bar – under “Dashboard” you should find “New Post”. Click on that, which brings up the Add a Post Submission Form.

2. Look to the left, you will see just under the heading “POSTS” the first choice is “All Posts”. Click it – and there you are! The Complete Archival Videos Table!

3. Great for searching to find out if anyone has already submitted a video, just by Clicking on “Pending” (everything in this column is listed from the earliest date first to the most recent submission last) and…

4. Click on “Trash” to see if your video has been rejected, and you will be able to read the reason why. This column runs the other direction, most recent videos placed in Trash first and earliest still in the Trash floder last. We do clean out both “Drafts” and “Trash” periodically, but never delete the entire list. Usually we leave up to one month’s worth… but sometimes only two weeks if the folders are very full.

If your video does not get published, please don’t take anything personally. It happens to us all! 😉 But I am here for questions, so don’t hesitate.

PHEW! Thank you all so much! I really hope this will suffice to get our current, newer miners/posters on the right track, plus allow others to begin posting – since it really is fun and pretty straightforward.

Umm… I already did my signature at the top so, err, I’d like to thank Emil for hiring me for this dream job, and a big thanks to all the posters – I personally know how much work and effort goes into finding and submitting videos! Then finally, thanks to EVERYONE in our community/family – PTZ is a great place to be!!!

    Keep on Poppin Peeps!

  • Thank you very much H.S!

    Call me idiot,but I was looking for a spot where I could “download” the vid! lol
    Oh well…(dont tell anyone tho…)

    This post,Madame,will go directly into my faves (easier to find this way).
    And If I get the chance to stumble into a great pus vid…

    I appreciate your great work @Halph Staph ,sincerly 😉

  • Owkay Halph…clearly understood…I think….I have posted a few last night. I have to search and post in the midle of the night…because the next morning/day, they are Old…because of time dif..

Wont happen again right ??? But for the post I did last night ,do I have to get them back…??? Trash them first and post them over again ??

    • Hey TC – Yeah, I realized from my prize winning tester that there is another section to add – how to GET TO the “Pending” list – as some folk**ZIT** submit (or whatever the **ZIT**on sez, lol) and have never seen the great lists.

      So folks, I will Edit today and add even more info!! lol PLEASE POINT OUT GAPS! Ask Questions! Please?!?

      TC – if you do know how to go to the Pending list, you can click Edit under the **ZIT**le of each of your posts, and the original form will pop up, so you should be able to complete them from there. But – any problems, or if you don’t quite understand, that is ok, just let me know, and I can help you. Happy to do so!!!

      Thanks everyone, PTZ Rawks (as the boss is fond of saying)

      ~ H.S.

  • Thank you, HS for this and all the hard work you do here! I will also put this in my favs (GOOD suggestion!) for easier finding later. All my future mining efforts will be done in this manner! Smoochies!

  • WELL DONE! I have to check my post now…I think I embed them?

    I guess I can put my camera away and stop making a fool of myself with trying to video how to post!!!! That was a nightmare!

  • This post is a huge help, Halphie. Thanks for taking the time to detail all of this out….and a big thanks to you, Emil, and all of the posters who bust their tushies to keep PTZ rolling so well. This is the one site I never fail to check daily, and all of you guys ROCK.

  • I love the fact of putting the posters name with the cute little **ZIT**les that that PTZ posters put on with their video- It’s a much better way of searching it!!! Great information and I will go in now and remove everything that isn’t pending!! Haha!

    Way to go H.S. Love all the information 5+ lol!

  • WOW ! So much great work and information. Thank You Emil, and Thank You
    H. S. I don’t know how to post video’s, ’cause I’m not that computer literate, 🙁 , but I wanted to write just the same, to just say Thank You, to all of You there, that put in all the work that makes all of this possible, and to all of the people that find those “rare gems”, that we all love to look at so much, and share with us all. I just love this site, AND, This Community too. Everyone here, is just so very cool, and H.S., You are so, so right about gimpysgirl. I’m such a huge fan of gg’s, and something tells me, that she’s about to find another one of those ‘One-In-A-Million-Gems’, that all of us here come here to see. And I can’t wait for H.S.’s ‘corner’ to come back too. I miss seeing ‘the corner’. It’s a true staple here at PTZ.
    Thanks Again. 🙂
    brent

  • thank you Halph Staph i should have read this when i first joined a few weeks back lol but i did read it today woohoo and thank you for all the information you did a wonderful job typing all that out smooches hugs and audie bear loves to you 🙂

  • Thanks for putting this up as a review. I was reading everyones comments and saw PTP. 🙂 Then I saw the date. 🙁 Boo. I see some of my submissions were lacking and I will make sure to do a better job next time I find a little nugget. I usually, leave that to the other guys, they all do such a great job! I’m happy to watch and let someone else get the glory, but yeah, I’ve submitted a couple.

  • Thanks for the update Halph Staph and everyone else over there, down there, up there and everywhere, where ever that may be! This is great update information you have p**ZIT**ed along! You guys are all awesome, and very much appreciated! Thanks again, Lee AKA 3cysterscafe

  • Don’t forget that posting a vid you found online doesn’t make you famous, and anyone posting the same vid is not trying to steal your fame.
    I really would like to see an age-restricted area where “bleeped” body parts can go. Things like fistulas and abcesses that close down the playground, so to speak.

      • Right? Emil and HS could protect themselves by doing what sites like YT do, require a birth date in the sign up, then there could be a ton more that we could post.
        Keegans Pus Nipple, for instance- thereare several mas**ZIT**is vids that could go up, and way more **ZIT** cysts.

  • Halphie, I am so grateful to you for this info…when I feel like I am way too full of myself, I just pop this in and wade thru it. Please know how humble I get very quickly…..I essentially am in way over my head, and no ladder is tall enough for me to climb to get a better clue.

    If I ever find something personal worth filming, I promise I will ask for explicit directions…the kind most people think you can’t be serious about asking for, except for anyone who knows me… !
