[[Post now owned by Manatubear since Markov is away!]]

This Post will contain those Youtube Channels that are officially acknowledged to contribute useful and entertaining content to our Wiki.

These channels belong to community members which have made an effort to support the wikis growth and were kind enough to share their knowledge and opinions with us.

If you would like to be on this list too, please post here with your channels name and a short explanation of what your videos are about (we are not interested in "Lets Plays"). Only user accounts older than 4 months will be considered for partnership. The wiki team will look over the submission and when approved your channel will be added here.

New members to the community WILL NOT be considered/approved for Youtube Partners.

New users that start posting their videos in wiki pages, right after having their user accounts approved, will have their accounts instantly deactivated WITHOUT ANY WARNING!

GUIDELINES



We have a few guidelines for channel owners to follow:
1. We will not accept signups from randoms unless these people make a commitment to adding relevant text content to the wiki and forums, not simply just videos*. Constructive edits, forum posting, and participation in the chatroom in addition to good standing in these areas. If you are making instructional videos and wish to share them on the wiki, the videos should be straightforward tutorials. Please no overproduced videos, highlight reels, or music that distracts from the information being presented. The videos should all be concise and useful for an individual who comes to the wiki looking for fast information. If you have artistic or entertainment videos that do not fit onto a wiki format, don't forget we have a very active forum where everyone is always more than welcome to share any of their content here: index.php

*This means, you must contribute to the wikis with information and text too.
Example: If you add a video location for an item, and that item page does not have text instructions on how to find the item, you MUST add the text instructions on how to get the item.
If you add a walkthrough video, you MUST add the text walkthrough to that area.

Being on this list means you respect the site rules for etiquette and content so:
* No embeds - Use links (Fextralife and VaatiVidya are allowed to use embeds)
* Add a link to the relevant wiki page on your video/description, so people can browse back to wiki.
* No self promotion in wiki PARTICULARLY not making your name a heading.
* No playlists, no video compilations.
* No PvP videos, the goal of the wiki is to inform, not to show players fighting skills.
* Videos should be as short and as straight to the point as possible. For example, don't post an area walkthrough video in a boss page, only boss fight videos should be posted in boss pages.
* Don't link videos similar to already existing videos in the same page. If there is already a video about it DON'T ADD ANOTHER.
* No deleting "competing" videos
* Location videos should be ONLY about that item/items in the same room. No compilations of item locations.
* Help the wiki keep relevant videos in and shameless self promotion out. No "Let's Play" videos or videos where users have to skip ahead to a certain point.


3. Please include a backlink to the wiki page that the video has been inserted into the YouTube description/end of the video.


4. We may also be interested in working with users who wish to submit content directly to the Fextralife channel. Cross linking channels is also a consideration in these cases.


5. When inserting a link on the Wiki, please follow this format: Forum Username (not channel name): Video Title. This will help us quickly ID your link and match it to the partner list. Please do not insert links everywhere and anywhere. On each page create a subheading below (if it does not already exist) that says "Relevant Videos" and place the links below it. Please keep the wiki neat and consistent.

IMPORTANT: Videos on the wiki that do not belong to channel owners on the list may be removed.
If you would like suggestions and ideas for how to make your content most accessible to people looking for quality info, please don't hesitate to ask here!

VERY IMPORTANT: Replacing the link of an approved video with a link of your own video, and keeping the same description, won't fool me and will get you banned!

Hell yeah! A quick reference to b sources I can trust. I hope someone will start a series showcasing the different play styles across several different builds.

Earlier I saw a video of a guy showcasing Dead Again. Looked like fun, specifically when it comes to invaders.

Thank you for making the thread!!

We should clarify a few things:
1. Won't be accepting signups from randoms unless these people make a commitment to adding relevant text content to the wiki.

2. Being on this list means you respect the site rules so:
* No embeds unless necessary - Use links
* No self promotion in wiki PARTICULARLY not making your name a heading (seriously)
* No deleting "competing" videos
* Help the wiki keep relevant videos in and shameless self promotion out

This way everyone wins :)
