What's the point of not being able to dead an unsifted video
@lucky760 and @dag I'm pretty sure this has been brought up before. I don't understand why we are not able to dead a video that is unsifted? If there is a reason i'd be interested to know it. IMO seeing a dead video on the front page and no way of removing it is just annoying, poor form and bad for the site.

and while i'm at it another thing that has been brought up before...

In the new layout once you are in a channel (ex: http://videosift.com/cinema/) there is no easy way to get back to the full site. In the previous version* you clicked on the sift logo in the upper left corner to return to the full site. Not so in the new version. Another sifter brought this to my attention and asked if there was a way that he wasn't aware of. All i could see doing is changing the url or going to a non new page version like comments then clicking on the logo. IMO that's seems broken and not something purposely done. Although if it was a purposeful change id be interested to know why.

*If you would rather use the old VideoSift version you can go to the bottom of any new videosift version page and at the bottom click 'beta opt out'.

End of harassing @lucky760 (for now). You know i love you

I've explained it ad nauseum. Just study the graphic at #29 of the FAQ and you'll have your answer.

Ah, Thank you. Wow from 7 years ago. No wonder i hadn't recalled it. Well thanks now it all makes sense. Not really feasible to make such a change. One more Sift issue resolved in my head

Good read sifters for those who are interested in the particulars like myself. http://videosift.com/talk/Why-can-we-not-mark-a-pqueue-as-dead#comment-627670

The graphic just made me think it's designed poorly, but your explanation made all kinds of sense. I like the details
