Implement JQuery autocomplete on fields of submit video form

Reported by: davidjlaietta Owned by:

Several fields in the submit video form could use JQuery autocomplete to make it easier to standardize input.

This would make it easier on submitters to enter information more quickly (useful when uploading multiple videos from an event), as well as help them avoid common mistakes and misspellings, and complete existing entries. This could also make it easier on moderators to approve fields easier. For instance, as a submitter I type "englihs" and do not notice the error when submitting. As a moderator I do not notice the misspelling and approve the video. Now we've got an improperly tagged video that could have been avoided with some standardization.

The fields that I propose use autocomplete:

  • Language
  • Producer w.org username
  • Speakers

The fields would still allow the ability to create a term that doesn't exist, but will default to suggesting existing terms.

The need for this might be a little reduced now that it 'remembers' most of the fields for the next upload.

Making the form simpler and more structured with autocomplete would still be nice though.
