User:Ianmacm, could you explain why you've flagged this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.134.120.238 (talkcontribs) 17:20, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, it looks like WP:ADVERT. Anyway, please leave the tagging until an admin has looked at the article.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 17:23, 12 September 2010 (UTC)


If Google Instant has its own page, then I don't see why YouTube Instant shouldn't. Anyway what's there to advertise here? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dorcasloss (talkcontribs) 17:24, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Most of the sourcing is from blogs, which does not really establish notability. Also, Wikipedia is not news.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 17:27, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Anyway, if you think that it wasn't written well, why don't you re-write it? Perhaps it does sound like WP:ADVERT, but not having a page on this new technology would not do justice to this encyclopedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dorcasloss (talkcontribs) 17:30, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Dorcasloss, you didn't include the new york times article http://www.ndtv.com/article/technology/stanford-student-creates-youtube-instant-offered-job-from-youtube-51387%7D. I deleted most of your references because they are largely from blogs. And much of your text too should have been deleted. Lovetheworldplease (talk) 17:51, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

If anyone here has links to YouTube Instant, they may have a conflict of interest. There is not a lot to say about YouTube Instant at the moment that is worth a separate article.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 18:00, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Sock puppetry[edit]

How many different people have really edited this article since it was created? There appears to be clear evidence of WP:SOCK.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 21:02, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

  • I do exist, check Wiktionary.org for example :)--MeProtozoan (talk) 21:42, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
  • MeProtozoan has only edited one article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by NotIanmacm (talkcontribs) 19:05, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
This is very simple method, it doesn't need to be published on Wikipedia. As he said "less than an hour". it is not rocked science, neither something revolutionary. Just a simple request method. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.180.43.89 (talkcontribs) 20:04, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

Current status[edit]

Is this site, or company, or Andy Warhol test case, still even in existence?

In popular culture[edit]

Twitter feed @IYIYI, which alerts people to parodies of cartoons featuring hispanic themes, mentions Youtube Instant, for no particular reason other than its initials. Mercurywoodrose (talk) 02:44, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
