This bot is great. The only problem I have with it is that it links using the shortened version of the URL (youtu.be). Since most people link to youtube videos with the full URL (youtube.com), the video links don't turn purple if you've already clicked them somewhere else in the thread.

Necessary evil for two reasons:

  1. Reddit limits comments to 10K characters. A shortened youtube link is 20 characters, whereas youtube link without API parameters (such as start time or playlist references) is 42 characters. Add in API parameters and it can be twice that again or even longer. Shortening URLs allows the bot to post more links, and it often doesn't get close to posting all the links in the thread. And frankly, you probably wouldn't want the bot to do that anyway

  2. Even if the bot wasn't shortening the links, it would at least normalize the youtube link to just the video id, removing API parameters to allow some basic "deduplication" of videos linked. Otherwise, if 5 users all posted the same video but with different start times, the video would appear 5 times in the bot's list. This is how the bot used to work and people complained quite a bit. So in light of this deduplication, you would lose a lot of purple links anyway.

Even though I won't be making any changes to the bot based on your complaints, I do appreciate your feedback. Please don't hesitate to make more suggestions in the future if you think of other ways the bot might be improved, or even just other things about the bot that you find annoying.

Thanks!

Fair enough, most of the time it isn't all that difficult to look at the video titles and figure out which ones you've already seen anyway, it was just a minor suggestion.

Thanks for the awesome bot.

I'm surprised to see that the man singing Bohemian Rhapsody in it's entirety while in the back off the police car on that last.
