Audio Related Issues

One of the more difficult aspects of our recent migration was the handling of audio attachments.  Audio is a first class citizen in our new format, whereas before it was nothing but an attachment.  All of our audio is here, but there are still some issues with sorting, cataloging, playing, uploading and editing.  Bear with me over the next few days (or weeks) to get all the audio cleaned up.  Once all the ID3 tags are masaged and all audio shows as posted by the correct user we'll have a very valuable collection of user contributed music.  We're getting there - thanks for your patience.

UPDATE: The sound bites forum will be frozen as we migrate all comments from there to their respective entry in the audio section.  All audio should be posted via Main Menu => Create Content => Audio.

What's the purpose of the 'alternate login' field in my profile?

Alternate login is a convenience tactic.  Users can enter an alternate login username that will work as their username site credential.  This can be useful for those who have a favorite username they like to use on many sites and would like the convenience of using it on reso-nation.  Also, for those who'd like to convert their username to their real name (which we'd love for you to do) you can simply set the alternate login to your legacy username so you can continue logging in with the name you are used to.  The alternate login can be any name, email address, etc.  For example, if my username has been bdictator for years but I would like to move to my full name 'Benevolent Dictator', I can simply change my username to 'Benevolent Dictator' and set my alternate login to bdictator.  I can still login with my old name (and restrict it's usage since all usernames and alternate logins must be unique) but display my full name.

How do I post a youtube video?

To post a youtube video you need to find the url of the video to post.  When viewing a video on youtube, there are two text boxes near the video information:  one titled URL,  one titled Embed.  Both contain the same url, but the URL variant is easiest to work with.  The url will be in one of these formats:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sog9cgX-39Q

http://www.youtube.com/v/Sog9cgX-39Q

The portion highlighted in bold is the movie id.  To embed a youtube video here, simply wrap the id in youtube tabs like this:

[youtube]Sog9cgX-39Q[/youtube]
