A few of us in IRC have noticed that some old LG15 videos have recently had annotations added. We're compiling a spreadsheet on Google Docs to record them all. There are 113 videos to go through, and we'd love some help!

I've been rewatching so I can try to help. I just don't know how to find annotations unless someone tells me exactly where to look. Is there a setting I should have turned on?

Whaaat? That is crazy. Man, M has been busy.

I will be no help because in computer years my laptop is basically a Neanderthal, so I have to watch YouTube on my phone and annotations never show up for me. But I'll be cheering y'all on!

I actually started re-watching because I was afraid they might have done something like this. I'm in season 2 now I'll keep an eye out for any annotations. Right now I'm bogged down with college work so we'll see what I can do during 10 min breaks from it. Keep at it guys!

Ughhh I've been rewatching on my TV and it doesn't show annotations. I could have missed so many. Womp.

I went through the 150 first videos yesterday and used https://stefansundin.github.io/youtube-copy-annotations/ to get the XML file for the video which contains the annotation information. Then today whilst browsing reddit a user pointed out that they had noticed some of the recorded files in the spreadsheet no longer had the annotation on it. The only video I found (33- Swimming! www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Q_y0HdJ4x8) has had the annotation hidden but is still viewable in the XML file. Hopefully tomorrow afternoon/evening (24 hours from now) I should be able to go through the rest of the videos.

I remember what started this whole annotation a few days ago was that swimming annotation...it's actually hidden under the time bar at the bottom. I'm at work so can't check - but maybe it is still visible?

It's still visible you just have to highlight over it with your cursor.

So it goes like this?:

Bree: "Whatever happened to that girl, Cassie?"
Annotation (by M, I'm assuming): "shewashere".

I'm...freaking out a little, not gonna lie. That's really, really intriguing to me.

It's actually not a clickable annotation, just text. Also, dunno when it was added. It could have been years ago, possibly part of CiW or something.

I've now been through all of the Season 1 videos from the playlist (which misses a few on the spreadsheet) the only extra I've added is:
Code:
186   Watch This!   DANIEL   LONELYGIRL15   February 16, 2007   join the resistance!!   00:30-00:55


Which is possibly an old annotation however its important to note that Youtube annotations were launched in June 2008 (a full year and a half after this video was posted) the link from the annotation takes you to the lg15 resistance youtube page. https://www.youtube.com/user/lg15theresistance?annotation_id=annotation_831767&feature=iv&src_vid=5LELNIVyMqo

I distinctly remember it being in place of the Next button when I first viewed the video and has since been changed. I could be wrong.. but it might actually be a 'clue'

THIS IS SO EXCITING! I am already done with my Season 1 rewatch, and was mostly listening to it in the background of work. It's so cool that that's happening though!
