Hi everyone,

I've been browsing ocr for over a year now; listining to music and the podcast.
And when the latter ended, I was, like most people, sad that it had to end.
So I've been thinking about making a (unoffical) ocr podcast, but before I do, I just want to make sure that at least a few people would be interested.

Thanks for letting me know,
retroactive

I can't say I know completely what the policy will be about this, but one of the important roles of the person doing the podcast is that he/she has to already be a visible figure in the community - you should hang around the forums and/or IRC more in order to really be in a position to be considered for it IMO.

Well, doing a podcast featuring OCR material is fine... being the official OCR podcast is something else, djpretzel is really the only person who can give the go-ahead for that. But in general getting active in the community is a good idea.

Nice. I'd join you, but we don't know each other very well and I'm not really that active a member of the community.

Well, just as long as someone does it.

I forgot to mention that it would be *unoffical*.

I am defintly going to get involved in the community first.

True, but thanks for the enthusiasm.
Hmm....possibly EasyP and I could do it. We are a good pair when working together...

Actually, I believe that's not really the case. The person doing the podcast (be it official or unofficial) should have a good personality to make the show at least semi-interesting when they talk, have knowledge about the remixes/games that are being featured, and basically just know how to use the needed equipment. You don't need to be an OCR regular to have those traits. So whether they're new to the site, or a regular of several years, as long as they know what they're doing, saying, and don't come off as a bumbling dolt, I see no reason to hold community visibility over someone's head as long as they can prove their abilities :smile:

Of course, since this guy's asking about doing an unofficial podcast, it's a bit irrelevant.

Of course, but if it's official, the person/people running it would be considered a part of OCR staff, which means taking on the responsibilities of the staff as a representative - it'd do no good to pick any random person who fits general good podcast traits if he/she holds views antithetical to the purpose of the site.

I completly agree. Which is why it would be an unoffical one. Mabye eventualy it would become an offical one, but that's not really a main priority, since I just want to have some fun and entertain people along the way.

A new podcast would be cool, but I liked the old one so much, I'd miss all the old features, and you can't just rip them off. I guess theres no sense in moaning about it though. Maybe whoever picks up a new one will pull a stunner on us.

I guess the thing I liked about VGDJ was the chemistry between the hosts worked really well. As long as you have that (maybe not to the point of romance this time :P) then it'll be entertaining.

What responsibilities? It's not like they'd be touring the country in a bus with "OCRemix" on the side amidst constant live media coverage :lol:

But seriously, to my un-podcast-initiated mind, their responsibilities would be pimping the show in a positive light, pimping the site and all its remixes in a positive light, and running the podcast (requests, interviews, play lists, setting up and arranging any needed mirrors/threads/downloads, etc). What other duties am I missing?



To be perfectly honest, I think we've all learned from past events that not everyone who works for a given company or site is the best person to speak for all of it (or parts of it). Sometimes you have to step outside that so-called "circle of trust", and bring in a fresh perspective... someone who hasn't been in constant contact with everything OCR. And chances are, if someone's that interested in being a part of the OCR line up, they wouldn't have major issues with the site. After all, why do volunteer work for something you can't stand?

Besides... it wouldn't be hard to set up a few simple rules... like, "Don't trash talk the site or its staff on the air", right? :wink:



Anyway, that's my take on it. I can see where you're coming from Bahamut, and I understand the concerns behind your views. Hopefully my point comes across at least reasonably well.

I've been waiting forever for someone to finally wanna bring back a podcast, and heh I'd do it with Arek except you probably all hate me by now, even though I'd let the past be the past.
