this thread isn't late at all
Hey Ww! If you've been around since near the beginning of the site, you might remember Ww's podcast, The Darkest Half-Hour
. Lately we've been toying with the idea
of bringing it back, with Ww's recent revival!
But, to do this, we need people for lots of things: organization, ideas/topics, hosting, a tech crew... and maybe more things. If you want to nominate yourself to work on this project, post here with a list of things you'd be willing to do / positions you'd like to be, and we'll... organize this... somehow?
i got indoctrinated into making this, i don't actually know what to do. BUT here's your Official Announcement thread that this will be a thing!
Also, quoting dfw's post because I think they've got the exact right idea for things to get this started!
Nominate + vote sounds like it would be a great combo, and if I may add, I think it would be cool if the nominees gave specific reasons why they would be a good fit ("I nominate myself because I can organize and host" or "I nominate myself because I am good at keeping the conversation flowing" or "I nominate myself for my extensive Cat Book Nerd Knowledge" etc. etc.)
3 or 4 hosts is a good number to shoot for, I think. This allows for a few guests an episode (They don't have to all be on at once, and in fact probably shouldn't be as calls get hectic fast when there are more than 4 or 5 people)
I am sure we could also use behind the scenes people so that could be a purpose for anyone who can't/doesn't want to be a host. (planning, editing, coming up with topics, uploading, and whatnot) So there's that too.
Putting all of this in an announcement to get volunteers for all the stuff would be a good start, and then another announcement for voting for nominees. That's what I think would work best, personally :3
