Filler Tangent is not a catch-all for content you're not interested in - Please read over the descriptions and exceptions.


  1. Tangential scenes added only for filler or humor that are not required to understand the main content of the video. This should not include segments providing context or background details.
    1. If any other category can be applied (mute or skip), choose them instead. Filler Tangent is the lowest priority category.

This includes:

  • Timelapses without voice over
  • Fake Sponsors
    • "X company should sponsor us"
  • Irrelevant/ tangential content
    • Content creator being distracted by something unrelated to the video
    • Unrelated highlight clips that don't provide any context, are not elaborated on and don't fit into preview
  • xxx

Exceptions/ Edge Cases
