IDEA - Official Youtube Channel
 
Quote:

First update: This idea became reality!

Several mods, loads of regulars and even both admins approved of this idea of having our very own Youtube channel and wish for me to proceed and make this become true. I couldn't be more excited and I want to thank everyone for leaving their honest thoughts on this and supporting me and offering me help with making this channel. One important issue is that SRhyse addressed is that we can't use the word 'official' within our title for the Youtube channel, so we have to come up with a name that doesn't contain that word. I'll be looking forward to all of your suggestions for a name for the channel.
Thank you so much everyone. Lets make history and enjoy having this amazing project that we are all participating in!

Second update: Want to help out? Please read.

I just made a thread for all of you guys who want to help out or share your ideas with me about the youtube channel. Please CLICK HERE to view the thread where you officially can apply for section helper or co-host of this channel. Thanks so much in advance.
Hello everyone,

So I couldn't sleep tonight, because this one awesome thing popped up in my head and I just couldn't close my eyes because of it. Felt so excited about the idea that I felt like sharing it with you guys right away. What basically inspired me was LilHinataGirl and her Official Facebook page. Please leave a comment for feedback or question. Feel free to ask or suggest anything. Thanks in advance. So here is my idea:

Official NDF Youtube Channel

Before you start reading my ideas, this is important to know:
This channel isn't just me, I basically need each and every one of you! I entirely support other people creating these videos along with me. Perhaps one of you is an amazing writer and loves to make sketches. Perhaps one of you can make a great video intro/outro with video editing. Perhaps one of you can come up with a great name for the channel. Perhaps one of you hosts a contest and needs promotion. Perhaps one of you is awesome at making a logo for this channel. Perhaps one of you can make great videos can I can upload too. I think its a good idea to host videos of other members as well. We all know, for example, Jonesy made forum related videos in the past. You get what I mean by now. I hope you guys don't think of it as MY thing. This is something for the entire forum to enjoy and participate.

The following is a list of suggestions for videos:
Feel free to judge any of these individually why they would work or not.
Spoiler:
- WR or 'Weekly Recap' Videos
Sharing everything that happened that week. Things & people that stood out.
Updating on new possible popular threads, as in a spotlight for new threads.
Perhaps if weekly is too much, you can upload every 2 weeks.

- FF or 'Forum Fact' Videos
Dedicating videos to things you should know about the forum.
Specially after people voted SRhyse for Quasi in LilHinataGirl's thread.
I think its time to educate the members a little in a playful way.
If you don't like the idea of several videos for this you can also make 1.
Perhaps that 1 video would be something like "50 forum facts" etc.

- Give away Videos
This might be a category that will be used the least. I think.
In these videos we can host an official give away. Quite obviously.
Perhaps we can use this method as a stimulation for people to reply/subscribe.
Maybe if we get 50 or perhaps 100 subscribers we can do this video.

- Contest announcement Videos
I don't think I need to explain this one, haha.
Those who want more promotion for their contest can contact me.
That way I can create a video about it and share in that section.
Perhaps people that didn't know yet will now be aware this way.

- MotM tribute/announcement Videos
In case you didn't know yet: MotM stands for Member of the Month.
There is a special section dedicated to this theme.
Perhaps we could use the official Youtube as promotion for this.
Could be fun to make a highlight on the member that won that month.

- Best of NDF 2013 Video
Just a random thing that popped into my mind while creating this idea.
If we have the weekly recap, perhaps make a compilation out of that?
This thing isn't that definite yet, but I think it should be fun.
2nd method: Make a thread about this in Offtopic, asking all the members
what they thought of as the best moments of 2013 and use that?

- Official awards Video
At the end of every year the staff host 'THE awards' of the forum.
Who was the best troll, who was best looking, who had the best post? etc.
Perhaps we can also use this Youtube to promote that?
As in... announcing things, explaining the rules of the awards for newbs.
I'm not saying I want to take over this idea. I entirely do not.
If the people of the forum awards feel like this is isn't needed I won't make videos.

- Q&A Videos
In these videos we ask the members a new random question.
We also show some of the answers of last weeks question of course.
Could be random like "What is your best memory of the forum?"
Perhaps this is a great (playful) way for people to open up to another.

- Official VIZ announcements Videos
Remember that rare occasion when the forum link was changing?
Perhaps in situations like that its useful to make a small video for this.
Of course these videos will be rare and won't be made often.
Still I thought we couldn't leave out this idea.
Mainly admins will have to contact me about the use of this idea.
If they won't allow me to make these videos, I won't upload them.
Of course the admins entirely decide what will be said in these videos.

So these were the ideas I had so far, feel free to add ideas or change existing ideas to something more ideal. These ideas are all raw and I'm entirely open to changes and new things. Thanks so much in advance for those who come up with great things and help me out here.

So of course the next question comes into your minds:
"You can't host this alone, can you?"
This is correct. I can't. I need people to help me out with all kinds of stuff. I even thought of a fun extra thing: The use of my many colorful wigs. Lets say each wig represents a forum member that is participating in this project. For example the pink wig will represent Ninja Pink, the blonde wig represents CrackFat and the Red wig represents Red. And of course each member gets to control/write what they're going to say if they appears in one of the videos.

"How will this work?" Well, its just plain same me that will be wearing the wigs, pretending to be the other members. I'll use glasses, different make-up and accessories if needed. Perhaps its fun to host the Weekly Recap with a different member each time?
If this idea passes the thought of approval I will make a new thread where I will be asking for people who want to participate in this project. So please be patient and lets not rush into things that aren't definite yet. ;)

Thank you all for reading! <3

Thanks, I was actually hoping for admin aproval since I can't do anything without their permission, since its their website. I just need to think of important stuff... "What if I'm gone for holiday, who will be my back up?" and "Who gets the password of this channel?" things like that. If the idea is being approved I shall discuss this with admins before I randomly hand out positions and passwords. The less drama, the better. Right? :D

Re: IDEA - Official Youtube Channel
 
Well, I guess I can't approve it myself, but I can't imagine any problem as long as the password is only for select people.

True that. Just keep calm and proceed the Youtube, haha.

Never thought of a try out really.
If this idea is approved I'll make it and it will start right away.
Of course there will be many preparations and introduction videos.
It will take some time for me and the co-hosts to organize everything.

This is a great idea.
I hope people reply on this idea as well. To see if they like it or not.
I'll definitely add this idea to my list of possible video ideas. Thanks.

Oh wow thanks. Much appreciated.

Well I see I could get more than enough help.
Glad to see people are liking this idea.
So far I'm waiting for more comments/ideas/questions.
And of course waiting also for admin approval. Perhaps I should PM them.

I know VIZ Media has their channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/vizmedia).
Still this is cool, I like it.

Ashen 08-21-2013 09:51 AM

Re: IDEA - Official Youtube Channel
 
So in short, a channel made by users of this forum that represents them in various ways. It IS a good idea, one that I'd have no problem with and that I'd be amazed if Rice or Sage had anything against it. :lol: It'll be a good way to try promoting the forum and its userbase.

I'll be sure to talk to Rice about it.
