So this is Christmas

Vimeo staff informed me that I am a persona non grata on their site:

Your account has been removed by the Vimeo Staff for violating the Rules of Vimeo.com

Reason: Uploading game walk-throughs, game strategy videos, depictions of player vs player battles, raids, or other videos that simply depict individuals playing a video game.

We hope you find a video host more suited to your needs. If you believe this was an error, please reply to this email in a civil manner with your reasoning (“I see other people do it” is not a valid reason).

In a sense they are right. I had two videos uploaded. One of them was a screencast I recorded of the ingenious World of Goo. If anything it was a promotion of the game to the readers with me awkwardly narrating in Hungarian. Can’t be more than ten people who ever watched it.

The other video was a “trailer” for a never realised movie project made by one of my ex-guildmates in WoW. I only put it online so I could embed it to sesam.hu.

Vimeo is famous for hosting only quality content anyway and since I can’t be charged with creating anything worthwhile it’s surprising they haven’t made the move earlier.
