Youtube: Select which option?

  • Count like the count!

    1) Inline style

    1.a) immediately overridden by a depricated font tag

    1.b) wrapped in a bold tag

    2) method="get". Really?

    2.a) action="". So I guess it's okay, since no one will see the shame.

    2.b) But there is an onSubmit function.  Even if there wasn't the popup in the screen shot, I suspect formHandle is:

       function formHandle(e)
       {
          menu.submit();
       }


    3) id="hiddenname". Not "hiddenid"?

    3.a) Same tag, name="".

    4) A table. Let's agree that in the context of the rest of this crap, it's a wtf.

    4.a) With inline style, of course

    4.b) Despite that, border and width set via attributes

  • I must say: Youtube have now altered that page:

    I did click the link, but its just a multi-choice questionaire. It doesn't allow you to select or type "Your website doesn't work", and I know from experience that
    "Live help" is of no help whatsoever. You'll probably end up talking to some idiot who doesn't know even know what Youtube is.

    I think the cheek implants are a good disguise.  Besides, the only people who will see his alter-ego will be at the gay bath houses, and what are they going to say: "I saw Bucky at Rub-a-Dub!"

    On a completely unrelated note: it is unwise to drop two dozen hits of blotter at the community swimming pool.

    He's only going to Gay City so he can beat up homos for being anti-American terrorists.  Next on his list: Tea Party City and Huffington Post City.

    I am handsome, mysterious, all-American and a hero.  But I am not Shadow Mod; I am just a mild-mannered programmer, citizen and forum regular who admires his dashing, heroic ways.

    And besides, Shadow Mod doesn't wears glasses. Duh.

    Oh, right.  Remind me again, which one is you and which is Shadow Mod?

    I... don't even know what this was supposed to depict.

    These were more innocent times, perhaps.

    Or utterly filthy and subversive.  Or Tuesdays at morb's place.

    Including the suits.

    1) Inline style
     

    Yeah, pretty bad, but technically not incorrect. I'm willing to bet a lot of these "inline styles" are still programatically injected.

    @Lorne Kates said:

    immediately overridden by a depricated font tag

    This is definitely fail. Especially considering YouTube was even founded after the font tag was deprecated and relatively unpopular. They can't even use the "Well, this page was designed when the FONT tag was prominant" excuse.

    @Lorne Kates said:

    method="get". Really?

    Sure, forms default to a method of get. So what? That's silly nitpicky stuff... unless you're referring to the fact that it should be capitalized, according to the standards.

    @Lorne Kates said:

    2.a) action="". So I guess it's okay, since no one will see the shame.

    Umm... no, that just submits the form to whichever page you're currently on, GET params and all.

    @Lorne Kates said:

    But there is an onSubmit function.  Even if there wasn't the popup in the screen shot, I suspect formHandle is:

    No, it's probably doing some validation in the function, returning true if it's valid and false if it's not. Returning false prevents the form from submitting. Now, obviously there should be some server side validation in addition to this.

    @Lorne Kates said:

    id="hiddenname". Not "hiddenid"?

    Who knows? This might be a hidden form element that defines some kind of name, like a username or some such.

    @Lorne Kates said:

    Same tag, name="".

    I didn't even know that would work. I bet some browsers would even crap out on that.

    @Lorne Kates said:

    4.a) With inline style, of course

    4.b) Despite that, border and width set via attributes

    ...not to mention it's an empty single-cell. However, besides the inline style and deprecated attributes, I bet what YouTube was going to do is provide a bunch of options in a tabular layout, which would be fine.

    I'm surprised you didn't include the empty enctype attribute on the form, which is a true WTF.
