This is for tangential scenes added only for filler or humor that are not required to understand the main content of the video.

This includes:

  • Timelapses / B-roll
  • Fake Sponsors
  • Slow motion clips that do not provide any context or are used as replays or B-roll footage
  • Bloopers
  • 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

Exceptions/ Edge Cases

  • If any other category can be applied (mute or skip), choose them instead. Filler Tangent is the lowest priority category.
  • In most cases, fillers should not be mute. Mute fillers should mostly be used for chaining to a skip.

Not included

  • Similar to other categories, do not mark entire videos.
  • Useful Information
    1. Provides context
    2. Useful Explanations or analogies
    3. Excerpts from source content
    4. Background details
  • Segments that are referenced later
  • Bloopers that include Endcards/Credits
  • Disclaimers that are there to protect the viewer
    • Spoiler warnings
    • Content warnings
    • Photosensitive warnings
    • Anti-harassment disclaimers
