Those sound like pretty good ideas. Hopefully they’ll be implemented into the app

The collaboration from a distance thing is not really about linking 2vids together more like making one video together (kind of like a musical.ly duet) with people you send a “collab request” to ( you can only send one to people with the same range of followers or less then yours). This video can be found on both channels with link to the lther persons channel, or under the “tagged” or “collab-tap” on the artist’s profile :slight_smile:

Beeing able to do collabs from a distance makes it easier to grow for people who live in small towns. This gives everyone a fair chance to work together, not only people from LA for example, where there are a lot of content creators :blush:

Great idea to put all the ideas together :sunglasses::ok_hand:

ahh, thanks for the clarification. I’ll change “addition” to “Variation” so there is no confusion. The idea of linking videos did popup in my head after i read your post.

Ads on behalf of countries. For example, I’m in Turkey, and I found v2 thanks to Dom hofmann. We can make special advertises for every country. And these are done according to the interests of the countries. In my country, it didn’t spread. But there are some countries. Some news may spread around. I think someone should be chosen for each country and advertising strategies should be planned.

I like the idea about the guidelines for the teams, maybe like a little terms and agreement each user has to check off in order to join the team.

Like this organization! Be sure to add more and link previous posts, giving credit to the original thinker

Added some more links and tagged some people who made similar posts.

For the others ideas, either I came up with them, or so many people have mentioned it in multiple posts that I just leave it as a general idea

I think it would be cool if you saw a video you liked and you could swipe to see more content from that artist or team but still stay in the feed so you could easily scroll through other videos. I don’t know if it’s possible but I think it’s a cool idea :aww:

For monetization, how is it going to work? Will a 6-second ad play before you watch a vine, or will there be a banner ad below the vine?

dom didn’t reveal what it’s going to be. I’m sure they are working hard on that cause monetization is a very important topic
