Any update on when this is scheduled to take place? We're launching very soon.

Review is mostly done, I just wanted to ask a few questions as to how videos actually end up on the site. I'll try and contact you now for that. I'll also post the bugs that I found. To summarize, these were:

* Upvotes look like that they can be automated, since the "already voted check" appears to be client-side. Not sure if this is a big deal, but seems to not useful have anti-automation if its only client side. (unless its just a usability feature)

* https is used across the whole site, but scripts are imported from third parties over http. There appears to be https alternatives for the scripts in question so it would be better to use these.

* HSTS isn't enabled

I'll post seperate bugs for each of these, any questions just ping (nb I am in Australia, so 5 hours behind PST)

Can't catch you on IRC Christie so i will ask my question here: I couldn't get any videos uploading during testing. I have reviewed the code, and as far as I could tell it seemed ok, but I would feel more comfortable if I could test the site with at least one video available (so that I can testing searching, viewing and voting). Is this possible?
Paul: should have a few videos up and video uploading should work now.
I tested the video functionality as well now thanks, no additional issues.
