Many of you will remember the old Small Vod Thread as one of the most important threads on TL for years. Almost four million views and over 9000 replies speak to its greatness, especially when you consider that posting anything other than a VOD link post or a thank you was prohibited. However, with professional Korean BW coming to an end last year, we've reached the end of an era. Combine this with the fact that the old thread has become too cluttered, the first post now largely irrelevant and littered with dead links, the time has come to retire this sacred ground on TL.
Welcome to the Small VOD Thread 2.0.
In case you haven't noticed, BW has been going through something of a revolution here on TL over the last few months, and we hope to continue the improvements. With the Small VOD Thread 2.0, we're hoping to provide a place where people can catch up on amateur tournaments with a spoiler-free list of VODs. Of course, these VODs won't post themselves, so for this thread to truly work we'll need people to take up the role of heroes like yakii in the old thread. Ideally, tournament organizers would post VODs of their own tournaments themselves, but we understand that organizing a tournament is time consuming and exhausting; they might need some help.
Hopefully we can get enough people contributing that this thread will satisfy all your needs for watching current BW VODs.
When and how to post?
Anyone can post in the thread and add games and series that haven't been added yet. When posting, please make sure your VOD links are correct and your post is spoiler free. Always post VODs in URL tags instead of embedding them. Too many embedded YouTube VODs, even in spoilers, will cause people's browsers to crash or hang.
See example code below:
YouTube or Twitch, Bo5
