Adopt a Feature v2: Who Will Be the New Champ?

Recently, we announced that a new set of features was in need of your loving care. Over 50 of you heeded Round One champion thecomputernerd01's call to help -- that is, to make a video explaining to the YouTube community how annotations, tags, Quicklist, mobile uploads and/or the customised homepage work. Almost 50% of the group chose to "adopt" Annotations, and Tags and Quicklist also received a decent amount of attention. You even made videos about a few features not on the list, like captions, the new channel design and widescreen viewing. So far, the videos submitted for this round have been viewed over 34K times and already there are some choice tutorials out there, such as...



...MikeandToneRP's explanation of tags, starring Megan Fox (um, not):








...LaughingLeaf's video on Quicklist, complete with a blooper reel:







...AJCShow's fast n' easy overview of sending a video from your phone to YouTube:








We'll be showcasing some of the best submissions on the homepage on Thursday, July 30, so it's not too late for your moment in the sun. Simply make a video about any or all of the features listed at the start of this blog post, and include the name of the feature and "adoptafeature" in the tags. Share your video far and wide -- our autoshare feature will help a lot with that -- and try to build views for it. It's one of the factors we'll use to decide who makes it to the homepage and who takes the crown for this edition of the programme.



Anyway, go forth and adopt (a feature)!
