I'm glad I submitted YouTube embeds for @VZWshow's IAWTV nominations. Pre-roll ads are time-consuming and annoying while voting.
People with #CTW5 pilots should consider deactivating pre-roll and overlay ads. Just sayin'.
folks in #CTW5 - PLEASE disable your adds on @bliptv for the lenght of the voting. cc @CelebrateTheWeb
Few people would argue that there is a need for Web series to generate revenue to become sustainable. One of the common and perhaps most disliked techniques is the "pre-roll". While clearly there is a time and place to use pre-rolls (for example, a popular property that has already developed its viewer base) many do not enjoy them when they first encounter or are exploring a Web series. Well, it seems like many of the show creators them self when required to watch them do not like them either. This became quite apparent today as voting began for the IAWTV Awards and Celebrate The Web. It seems that when confronted with the same viewing experience that they expect viewers to accept many Web Series creators were less than happy about having to watch pre-rolls.
