6, 6.5, 7 seconds[edit]

Just to end the edit war over "6" vs "7" seconds, I've added a source explaining the expansion in recording time from exactly six seconds to six plus one-half second after button release, and the "7" apparent length displayed in the camera roll. So, rounding down, it's still "six" seconds, but the app developers rounded up in the app, more's the pity. --Lexein (talk) 21:59, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

On a somewhat related note, it says "minimum clip length of six seconds", implying that clips must be at least six seconds. Shouldn't the article say "maximum clip length of six seconds"?-- (talk) 22:27, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing that. It seems that someone has been repeatedly inserting that into the article. Mark Schierbecker (talk) 23:53, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Then please suggest something else because the original title isn't cutting it. Mark Schierbecker (talk) 06:22, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Is the Iliad words? Mark Schierbecker (talk) 23:43, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
That's the way I'm leaning. Mark Schierbecker (talk) 23:28, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
I am not sure since the title could imply to a person unfamiliar with the content that the article is about a video titled vine. Maybe vine (application) would be best.-- (talk) 00:53, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

New Section ideas[edit]

This wiki article needs a section with famous viners. What do you guys think? I vote yes it needs this section with a list of some of or all of the famous viners. It also needs the amazon video service that Amazon made that is there version of Vine on the See Also part with a link to the wiki article for that.-Written by Greshthegreat at 5:37 PM Mountain Time Zone on 7-24-14 in The USA in North America — Preceding unsigned comment added by Greshthegreat (talkcontribs) 23:31, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate list. Any such additions should be done judiciously and with an emphasis on the notability of each subject. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 20:02, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Popular users[edit]

I've trimmed all the red links from this section and tagged it for lack of references. As Cyphoidbomb states in the above comment, Wikipedia is not the place for an indiscriminate lists: I'm intending to leave it a month or so and then delete most of the mentioned artistes, unless other editors can both source claims for each entry and indicate why they are particularly notable in this respect ~dom Kaos~ (talk) 10:25, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Change of article title?[edit]

As of now, the article is called "Vine (service)", wouldn't it be better known as a social network rather than a service?THetardis123 (talk) 21:35, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Request to change screenshot of vine account to Login page?[edit]

Currently, the image representing Vine shows Shawn Mendes. I feel this picture was picked by a user on basis of personal interest rather than representation of the app. A more representational picture should show a login page of the app. On the other hand, his account shows what the app holds, but nevertheless shows bias.

Thank you,

I think we need coverage in the article of the memes which have spawned from, or were popularized by, this service.
