Alright. Seem like most dicks just skimmed through shits and post for their own goods.
This coming from the guy who addressed my argument with an ad-hominem.
And pretty apt for what you say next:
Here is the quote from TomFulp
The big question is whether speedpaint videos will completely flood the Portal and make it harder to find animations. We could consider something that filters them out of the main listings if they become an issue.
So get iron, but kills gold?
Let's add a new category that attracts little people and kill the one that is the main attraction of NG for long time? Fuck logic right?
You didn't seem to read the concluding sentence in my post, which was:

There were speedpaint vids in the movie portal long before this thread was made, and nobody gave a toss about them. There isn't a flood of people waiting to upload speedpaint vids anytime soon.
I have hunted through the Informative movie section for speedpaint vids, and put "speedpaint" and "timelapse" into the search bar.
These vids are
- Few and far between. You will have incredible difficulty searching for a timelapse vid amongst the wealth of other animations and tutorials in the informative section. They don't clog up the portal because artists don't timelapse every single pic they make.
- The reviewers don't care. Nor do the voters.
- Have been a part of the portal since 2008 - and have never gotten under people's noses up until now, when people who don't browse underjudgement are allowed an opinion on something they have been mostly ignorant about.
Now let's consider stuff that is more like art than a movie, but is in the portal anway.
Tutorials, Art collabs, Dress-up games and other gadgets.
These are separate categories that are few and far between in the portal. Nobody's going to come to NG to watch an art collab, sure, but just because they aren't a movie doesn't mean they kill the portal.
To sum up, this is not a thread about opening the floodgates to speedpaint vids, because for 4+ years there were never any restrictions put in place anyway. And their presence certainly hasn't poisoned the portal.
