All things considered and since I currently don't have a PC I think Aika's idea is brilliant. If you want to set it up man and just link, it seems like you have a lot of support with this.

I'd definetley love to set it up, whether someone else writes for it/runs it whatever. However considering the fact it would be a blog run and made by/for members of this community I think I'd like to ask Natasha's permission to make it an official FurryTeens Blog rather than just a blog named "The FurryTeens Blog" as I feel that would be appropriate considering she initially helped found and continues to help run this site.
And also, I'd need a list of those who would want to be involved and what they would want to write about.

I haven't really done any blog posts before, but i wouldn't mind being a writer. I could talk about alot of stuff, but it could go into something more specific if needed.

But yes permission would be good.

As far as I can tell, they want to start a blog.  That's about all I'm certain of.

If y'all are talking about setting up an external blog, my vote is a very large "No", because that's feature #1 for the website, which has resumed active development.  Beyond that, it's up to Panda to decide the policies for something like this, but I'll also mention that an off-site blog raises the same issues that we have with off-site chatrooms getting any sort of official recognition; the difference is that we can very easily set up a blog within the site's domain and infrastructure, while a chat system poses too many technical challenges to be realistic.  Also, as I said, it's already in the works, and it's pretty much at the front of the development queue, so please be patient!

Sorry for confusing you Panda, I proposed the idea of setting up a podcast but Aika suggested a blog. I was fine with both ideas but it's hard to tell what people would want since every post is "I like this idea!" But haven't defined if they would enjoy a podcast or Blog.

I'd really like to be a host on the podcast. That would be awesome. It would be cool to have podcast hosts from all over the world. :fox-;):

That was kinda tried in the previous attempts at FTR, and the timezone issues tore the show to shreds. Really, we can't stress it enough- THE TIMEZONES ARE A MAJOUR ISSUE. What is a reasonable time recording in, say, LA is pretty late evening in NY. And in Britain its like 4AM in the morning. So, a simple recording with three members is now impossible. And that assumes they're all free at the same time, which was another issue.

Then lets have people in the same timezone record one episode and then people in another timezone record another and so on and so forth.

That breaks down the professionalism and regularity of the show, and opens up a whole plethora of issues, from staff control over an official FT project to the quality of the hosts, and the final product being worth the time and effort that goes into producing it.

Edit: I dont mean to keep shooting it down, I'm all for FTR, but if we want to avoid another failed reboot, these issues have to be addressed and taken seriousely without compromising the integrity of the final show. What is needed is a controlled, planed and structured aproac to this project, and a lot of that may well be experimenting with format and procedure- but what has been suggested so far only diverges very slightly from what was attempted before, and we know that that doesn't work. Time and effort spent carefully planning a reboot will save the show in the long run, keeping in mind that FTR would need to be professionally created and presented to stand any chance of becoming as succesful as certaily I, and I'm sure everyone else, wants to see. So that means structure and regular, familiar content despite the issues mentioned in this thread. And, unfortunately, solving one usually compromises the other.

As of right now, there are no official plans to reboot FTR, but interest in the project can help change that. Kep the ideas flowing, but don't hope for miracles, is what I'm trying to say. FurryTeens has a mission statement to help wherever it can, and the show must comply with that first and foremost. An unproffessional and messy show that is destined to inevitably fail cannot fit that mission. Neither can a rigid, unchanging show that cant be bent easily to fit the international nature of our member base, even if it is successful.

I figure I should formally address this so here we go:
Regarding the blog, let me think about it. I really like the idea, but I'll have to get some input on whether there are any negative aspects to having a user-run but still official blog.

Regarding FTR, I'm not too sure about a revamp. Do I want it? Yes, I think it'd be awesome, and the failed episodes were fun to record and I'm sure they would have been fun to listen to  :fox-:P: I'll admit that I don't know much beyond that, so I'm not really the best at thinking about something like this. But until we can work out the many kinks, its not going to happen. I'd rather wait for a steady stream of good episodes instead of doing a bunch more failed ones, or being inconsistent.

That's not a no, I'm just saying that as it stands, it won't be happening. I WANT to see it happen, which is why I'm leaving this thread open to generate more feedback. There's great discussion here and I appreciate that c: Hopefully we can figure something out, but I ask that you all be patient.
