Chuint seems to have the more practical idea so far, but I second what Hale says - we're still waiting for the FTR to pan-out properly, and we're not large enough a forum to support both projects at the same time, not without knowing which would be succesful. There's an awful lot of effort gone into the FTR, and more is still needed, so maybe we should just focus on that for the moment.

Ok, time for me to throw in an opinion...

I am with the general view that FTR is spotlight right now, and we need to see how that all works out before we try to get into something new.

However, I also have a suggestion with this.
There has been talk going around of who is going to what con, when, and all that other fun con-planny stuff...

If you really wanted to do something videocasted, I would talk to members who plan on going to cons.
Find out if they are ok with being filmed, then do a 'Hello FT, from beautiful SUCHANDSUCH-CON' video for the site.
Maybe talk with a few of our members, pick up some video from the con-sights...

I like the idea, but we should perfect FTR first. Like Hale said, we're not a huge forum, so one thing at a time.
Plus, it would be hard to put together episodes as fast (even though it's not that fast) as FTR.
But, I'm sure we could overcome that once this starts to become a real project.

I didn't really mean an official show, just the opportunity for people to make their own little videos, so that people can watch them here.

I think there is something like a 'furry youtube'....

If you want user made videos, I have this suggestion:

Natasha and the staff can appoint someone as channel owner on either youtube or furtube (whatever it is called).
Then anyone who wants a video, has to send it to that person. The video staff (possibly 2-3 people) would watch the video and discuss if it if appropriate for uploading, then upload it.

1 - This needs fed the "Anthrocon style" solution, if it ends up happening.

2 - The server is overworked as is, if you've not seen Natasha hopping to to try to track down the source of recent speed issues.

3 - I can't see the practicality with the turnover rates that this site has experienced in the past. It's not the fact that I think anyone here may go "I'll do it!" and then dissappear; when FTR was in the preplanning stage for resurrection, a lot of us who either were here an outrageous amount of the time at that point (*points at self*) or had been here for quite some time (*jerks thumb at our two poderators*) expressed interest in it, which is part of what made it a worthwhile investment beyond personal interest. The larger concern is that it seems like FTR is struggling to stay afloat with interest from the so-called regulars, without adding another layer of things to do other than that. Perhaps you've not heard of the KISS principle in design?



The point of this is not to come in and dash all your hopes to shreds. What you're proposing is a very real possibility. At the rate this site has been growing of late, it's quite possible that it may be able to happen within a year or so. Though, as previously suggested, it may have to start off site... But, it just does not seem practical right now.

If you're unaware, as I was a few short weeks ago, the AC solution is "Great idea! You're in charge!"
