  • Support as nominator --Guerillero | My Talk 03:12, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Question Is it my machine or is there a brief loss of sound half way through, and a jump in picture just the the shuttle starts to move? My computer isn't the greatest but it doesn't normally lose sound randomly and I've played the video about 5 times in a row without leaving the page so there shouldn't be a buffering issue... gazhiley.co.uk 11:38, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

  • What a shame... I assume only 4 supports isn't enough to promote this despite the lack of opposes? gazhiley 08:30, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
  • I would like to support this nomination, with the concession that it is technically past the voting period. To the community: keep in mind that participation is pretty lacking in nominations as of late. That said, I would not complain if the closer ignores this vote.

  • Permission granted, plus another support. For EV. Also to promote videos. BTW, I think our usage of videos is atrocious (the whole format kerfuffle) and that we are way behind just blogs and stuff. That said, my hope is that giving some prominence to what we do have, starts to build more an awareness of using videos.TCO (talk) 02:32, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
