Lately we've been developing a new part of the website. Somewhere that all the strange and funny videos, games, and general weblinks that are found during QI research can be posted, as well as a very occasional video created by the elves to expand on something mentioned in one of the shows.

We're not sure enough to officially put it live on the website yet but, if you want to take a sneaky peak and let us know what you think, take a look at http://www.qi.com/qtube/

It's quite a good idea - a nice sort of compendium of interestingness. I like it.

What it made me think of, though, was Tumblr - perhaps consider setting up a Tumblr account, and then hosting it on qi.com (which it does allow you to do)? Tumblr seems to me to have a slightly more user-friendly interface.

But that's just me.

The idea is definitely worth pursuing.

I was looking for this section when I posted the Youtube video on the other thread the other day, there was a link on for a while that was going nowhere...

I'll have to look at it later when I'm at home and have some time, but I like the idea :)

I like the idea, too, but I'm at work at the moment and I can't play vids, so I'll peruse at leisure this evening.

Much as I'd love to take the credit, it's all eggshaped's work :)

It's too tempting. I can see lots of time disappearing there...

Good stuff :)

A couple of the links are wrong

The first one in the 'Art' section says
'http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/news-breath-taking-images-hyper-realistic-portraiture-david-jon-kassan'
but takes you to
'http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/art-and-design/news-compellingly-chilling-trash-sculptures-apocalyptic-artist-chris-kuksi'

and the first one in the 'Other worlds,Photographed' says
'http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2010/10/18/gallery-of-exoplanets-real-pictures-of-alien-worlds/'
but takes you to
'http://www.flexijourney.com/blog/21-most-remarkable-natural-phenomena/'

Apart from that; I spent rather more time browsing than I possibly should have :)

I've made this thread sticky until such time as the site is set up with a readily-accessible link.

Thanks spoilt. I'll amend those links now. I find it much more difficult to post hyperlinks on there than I really should.

PS Keep it bookmarked anyone who likes it - I should be updating it most weekdays for the foreseeable.

Good stuff :).
Question: how many times did Van Gogh cut his ear off? :P

Hm - tried the IQ test. My screen freezes at the circle contained by the square yes/no. Logged in few times, but don't get any further. Is it my computer?
