VideoNeat is up again! The theme was very old and not updated in years so it was not working properly and we were unable to update the whole website for some time now. We finally changed the theme and redesigned the entire website. It looks quite similar to how it was before, but probably a bit more functional now.

Mind you it is not optimized for mobile phones and it won't be for some time. It is not a priority for now. Only after the TROM II documentary is released we can do that. But regardless this website is not meant for such tiny screens anyway. And most mobile phones can't even properly support the Bittorrent network that VN uses.

Also we need some 50 more euros for our campaign to pay for the backups for VN and all other websites. Please help if you can we have to pay in less than a week.

hey guys, I spent ten minutes on your site. I have no idea what you are trying to do/say. There's no real mission statement. None of your questions have answers, just a reframe of the questions.

This seems like a parody of a free thinking website before it turns into a conspiracy based site
What are you talking about? Videoneat is an educational website where we list scientific documentaries mostly. VideoNeat is part of the TROM project. The TROM project's main website is

If you want to know what TROM is about maybe you can read our main book: The Origin of Most Problems -

If you find anything conspiratorial I'd be very curious to know what that is.
can you explain Trom in three succinct sentences? While I appreciate your offer to read your 1100?? page manifesto of all of the issues with society perhaps explain why I should care about your thoughts? And then translate that to your Home or About pages is what I'm saying. Trom seems like a conspiracy site because it doesn't seem to ever get to the point.

Have an occasional summary sentence
You seem super smart, but even your explanations leave questions. From your FAQ tromsite IF I want to know what Trade Free even is I get a question about what email to use?? Can you see the problem here?? I fully support change to the system that isn't and hasn't been working for a long assed time but you can't even clearly get across what you are all about. If your website can't answer a basic question about a basic principle of your organization how will it grow?!
As said we have a video presentation on the homepage plus a pretty detailed book about it. And a new documentary coming. We will improve the FAQ after the documentary is released. There is a lot of work going on now with this new documentary. Working for the past 2-3 years on it. And it is almost done. So things will improve in regards to our FAQ or other parts of the website.
Your intro is broken just FYI. Your "like Monopoly" video still doesn't explain what you are about? Is Trade Free a version of socialism? Until you can say "The world is broken and we need to do 1: 2: 3: to even have a chance" you won't broaden your audienc. Nothing you are advocating for is so complex it cannot be simply stated, and you seem married to complexity for complexities sake. You want to reach a global audience? Make your message simple, like me

So we want to make sure people understand that "trade is the origin of most problems".

Verbatim, pulled from your response. This is perfect. I asked you to sum up your views in a way simple to understand. I spent half an hour on your site and another half hour talking to you directly to get this! Why isn't that or some variation more accessible on your site?

To take a step back, Respect for the sheer volume of work you've dedicated to this intellectual exercise.
I will make sure we make this more clear after the documentary is released and we will revamp the website. This is for sure something we wanted to do.
It's super easy to do and it's something I'm very guilty of, I so often assume the background knowledge I have on a subject is something everyone has and as a result I'll "begin" a conversation at a level that often means I have to take several steps back. I hope this brought some value to your day, do you have a goal for the new documentary being up? And any plans for cliff notes of the manuscript?
The documentary is almost done. It will be posted for free of course, on I am not sure I understand this question "And any plans for cliff notes of the manuscript?"
sorry for the delay. I'm paraphrasing but your magnum opus Most of the Problem is very weighty, and unless it involves sex most of the population isn't going to read it. Even if it involves sex many won't . My last book was fiction and 450 pages, personally your giant tome and huge imposing documentary seem to reflect the grandiose behaviors of the church keeping the message inaccessible to the common man. Your message is clear when you speak from the heart so do that more!
It looks at a cursory glance to be 15 years and countless hours of time. I've really enjoyed this conversation, I fully agree the system is broken so please don't feel I'm saying anything bad about your site views etc. What I'm doing is showing you my perspective. You've been submerged in this subject matter for so long you assume so much knowledge of visitors. We (I) don't have your entrenched background. If I can't grasp your views quickly imma pass and move on, see?
This is very useful indeed and it helps us make the information more easy to grasp. We will make sure the website will be more straight-forward in regards to what TROM is about. This should be something that we will fix before May when the documentary is scheduled for release.
Trade-Free means we should create goods and services that ask nothing in return. Like Wikipedia, Doctors Without Borders, Open Source software, and so forth. No ideology behind really, just a "humane and humanitarian" practice.

This is also a great summary
Is it just me or does the site look more vertically stretched out now?
No idea what you mean....screenshot?
I mean I feel like the site takes up more vertical space now.
Look at the screenshot attached, just 2 documentaries are taking up all my screen and I still can't fully read the description of the first one. Would be nice if it were more compact, having to scroll a lot is bad UX.

And of course there's no hurry, you can fix this when you're free from all the TROM II work.
Oh well I suspect your screen has a very small resolution. This is not how it looks on my full hd screen.

I did not test it much for other resolutions but will try to improve it a bit the following months. Am too sick now and also need to focus on TROM II. In the meantime try to zoom out a bit ;)
@tio Wow that's such a big difference between your screenshot and mine, if you look carefully you'll notice that in mine the pictures look almost square instead of being rectangle shaped. I tried zooming out and it worked, so for now I can use this trick.

Also did you get COVID from going to the dentist? wishing you a quick recovery :ablobcatheartsqueeze:
idk if it is covid but it sure is a very bad cold 😁
@tio Get well my friend 😀
@tio @futureisfoss yes. As well - get well soon!
