On the currently ongoing Good article nomination for the Smoking PSA article, the nominator and I have seemingly reached an impasse regarding an objection. To quickly summarize, I am unsatisfied with the article referencing the bulk of its information to the text "Smoking PSA" (see Reference 1), which does nothing. This article's ability to properly reference its content is entirely reliant on the existence of this PSA video on other websites, and that's not a good position for us to be in. Wookieepedia should make itself as self-reliant as possible when it comes to referencing information. Therefore, I am proposing a one-time video upload to allow us to upload this 60-second PSA video and host it in our article for reference purposes.
As I'm sure many of us remember, we laid the groundwork for this type of thing a year and a half ago. In that CT, we agreed to potentially use videos on a case-by-case basis and that admins would upload any videos that we potentially decide to use, which would be the case here. We didn't fully define what our potential video-upload system would be, and I'm going to ask that we please reserve that discussion for another forum, but if we do agree to upload this specific video, we can perhaps explore codifying this upload system more. But for now, let's vote on whether to upload this specific video as a one-time deal for referencing purposes. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 23:15, June 11, 2014 (UTC)
