The 2019 Instant View contest is over. View results
The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Issue #1

Accepted by admin
Agreed, other templates have demonstrated that it is entirely possible to generate IV for these pages. The video is non-essential content that is not part of the article - so by removing it we are not losing anything important

Admins, How do you determine what is important and what is not for the user? I do not see the logic. What are the criteria? Somewhere you reject the templates if the video is cut, and somewhere you approve. Why?

And your wrote:
2. IV Targets: Must NOT Generate
Pages with unsupported embedded content that can't be displayed

6.4.2 Video/Audio from unsupported players
Otherwise, mark the object with the @unsupported function.

You never write that I can just cut out some of the unsupported content.

The reason for different decisions will be because each domain is different, and the way they lay out pages and how important the videos are to the content differs.

In this PARTICULAR case, this domain includes "Bonus Videos" at the bottom of articles - which are not part of the article content - and are simply there to increase engagement. Such content is not necessary and as long as it can be safely removed (which other templates have shown is possible), then it should be.

Of course, if one of the videos on this site is in the middle of the article, and not preceded by the "Bonus Video" text then it is to be considered part of the article content, and therefore should be marked as @unsupported and no IV should be generated.

It is only because these videos are clearly not related to the article content, that we recommend removing them
