Ah yes, I'm surprised it took this long before a youtube showed up :P

Basically, at the moment, the way Pineapple parses links to make sure there are no duplicates, it prunes out url params.

To make a youtube video show up properly, use this URL syntax:

Not ideal, but that's yet to be fixed.

Yeah, I was surprised that there was no Youtube tag. Maybe there should be? Also, I still don't have enough rep, but I really don't like the Screencasts tag here. Makes me immediately think of Railscasts or Destroy All Software.

Talk would be better. Presentation would be good too, but I see it is being used for presentation software like reveal.js.

Alright, we have a tech talk tag, I used that instead, because not all of them are on youtube.

Tech talks implies it's about "tech". Can't it be just Talk? Sorry for so many comments :P but you've got a cool thing going on here, I'm pumped!

Hmmm... I think talks is ok but it seems a bit vague. Maybe programming talks or development talks?

Those seem vague as well. And I get that you are being careful about adding all-encompassing tags. I've read the FAQ about them, I know that tags should be treated like gold.

But the idea I had with the Talk tag was that I could search for the tags Ruby on Rails and Talk and I would get all the talks about Ruby on Rails. If there are Tech Talks and then Programming Talks then searching for Django talks, for example, would be harder. The Talk tag on itself will be useless, but when paired with another tag will yield exactly the results people are looking for: talks about something.

Ah yes, right. That makes sense then. That's how it is for the basics tag.

Ok renameed tech talks to talks and later today will go update all the old ones (and all the youtube links)

Just went through and updated ~ 50 youtube links. Should be good now

Since I can't reply to your other comment...

Hey, that's great. Thanks for taking into account my suggestion!

Now, I don't know if you have a policy about relevant comments... But I think you can safely delete this conversation so it doesn't clutter this resource's comments :P

It would be trivial to convert the standard youtube link to the shortened url, I think :P

In the meantime, notice that I submitted a duplicate resource because my resource had www in the url and your resource didn't. Maybe that would be worth checking out too.

It should know the difference between www/non. And yes you're right about shortener - it is easy, but I just had a lot of other, bigger features I was working on and never got around to the youtube one.

Is this the standard way to provide the slides to a talk? I considered adding them as a difference resource but I it makes more sense to see them together. That's why I added them to the resource description.

Maybe there should be a way to submit 2 resources together, but I guess that only complicates things.

1 resource for sure. Usually all additional comments/url's/slides/reviews of resource/etc go in the comments. You'll notice if you look up some resources you will see people comment when new versions are released, or if they try that resource and really like it. Other people will link to HN or reddit threads about that resource so people can learn more about it.

Tutorials are any resources you learn from.

Examples: an intro to html5 screencast, a pdf about git, photoshop effects tutorials, meta-programming in ruby, lambda calculus, higher-order fixed-point combinators.

Tools are websites, apps or services used -on- your project (indirectly), to aid the process.

Examples: A color scheme generator, email marketing software, usability heat maps, css3 code generators, a downloadable png compressor.

Assets are downloadable files used -in- your projects, usually as code, textures, or images.

Examples: a jquery sticky menu, photoshop brushes, background textures, mvc frameworks, twitter bootstrap, 960 grid system.
