Chip made a content creator server on discord, I don't know if we'll use that or just make private sub chats for content people on the main TLS server, but can I ask those of you who've indicated an interest to contact me on Discord so we can all chat in one place? We can decide from there who's doing what/ how we're moving forward. I'm active on Discord whenever I'm home, so just @ or PM me if you need to get a hold of me.

Carry on in here too, I still need people to commit to the podcast. We're at a stage where we might go back to sporadic fulfillment of that but I'd rather we got a routine output back on track.

I'd also like to have a meeting with everyone at some point on Discord so we can chat about assigning roles.

New TLS people are also more than encouraged to join in <3

I've been lured in by the gentle tugging of Chip, speaking of which.

My skills are a bit eclectic and all of them are self-taught. I've demonstrated that I'm not shy with Photoshop (whether it's manipulation or digital art), I have some experience in video editing and audio-mixing and a little bit in animation. I have a working mic of decent quality and have a knack for putting on voices if there was ever a project that, well, needed that sort of thing. My motto when it comes to the creative process has always been this: dream up an idea and then do whatever I need to do to make that a reality, even if it means learning a new skill.

Oi, and I'm very much a team player, haha. I think I'd be good with brainstorming processes and pitching ideas with others and figuring out how to make things work. For now, I think I'd contribute the most to the YouTube team, but I'll always do whatever I can to help in other areas if it's so needed.

Also, just wanted to add that I'd love to hear Minato on the podcast. I've always enjoyed hearing him talk about Final Fantasy in voice chats because, well, he definitely knows his stuff!

Similar in my case, I've been working as PHP developer for 1 year with Wordpress CMS. Part of my knowledge as designer and front end developer is self-taught and I love research related with FFVII. If I can help to the community it will be an honor for me.

OK so here is what I have so far based on what everyone's said:

YOUTUBE

- Chip
- Claymore
- Carlie
- Channy
- Fancy

WRITERS/ EDITORS

- Jecht
- Crash

SITE DEVS

- Kionae
- Radigar

ARTIST

- Fancy

PODCAST

- Tennyo
- Minato
- Carlie

And Mage said she's happy to help with whatever is needed, which is cool. Have I missed anyone?

I'll obviously be involved in everything, but I'll appear in the podcast when needed and I'll be involved with the YouTube stuff just from a QA/ management standpoint. At least initially

Fancy I put you down as "artist" because I'm hoping you'll be able to dig into the site graphics if you're willing. Flint was the last person who did this and prior to him was Pixel, so we need someone to deal with that/ create new TLS style stuff aswell if needed.

I'll just add that also we should consider our social media. Lith and I discussed it. I can handle keeping our presence in Reddit, and Lith suggested she can help keep our presence on facebook. Either of us are twitter junkies that can also spread there.

I'm happy to guest-appear on the podcast when needed, but I don't want to create a too many cooks in the kitchen sort of thing, but if you're short a person some month or need a hopeless homer/fanboy, let me know

I've invited everyone to a server chip created while we sort things out (on Discord). Please check your discord PM's. If you didn't get one, PM me on discord. I'm waiting on Kionae, SeaDragon, Radigar and a few others to accept and join. I've split people by responsibility and we can get underway chatting about how to proceed

If people need extra help, I wouldn't mind doing a bit more than I am now as one of the community managers. that being said I don't have much in the way of technical skills at this time. I can do artwork, I could help edit articles or whatnot, and maybe appear on a podcast if you guys need an extra voice. I might not always be available though, life has been busy and I'm trying to find more work to improve living situations.

If you want to try video and/or audio editing they have the first month free or I could refer anyone interested and you will get two months free.
i don't know if it was just because they were starting out and wanted to get some buzz going but a while back i have seen a number of youtube channels offering links to get 2 months for free.

i downloaded a bunch of stuff during that time but i think about how much more they must have now and what i must be missing

I saw several people offer to help with editing and what not for the youtube channel so not sure if you guys would want yet another person helping , but for what its worth I have quite a bit of time on my hands lately and would be glad to help as well.


I know my way around both After Effects and Premier Pro. I don't currently have Photoshop installed but can grab it any time if you guys need quick graphics work or thumbnails etc.

Here's my current personal youtube channel

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxd...JOgFHo-HBiEuVA

On it you can find two montages I made for a Fortnite streamer to help with his rebranding, they didnt realize his clips had enough content to make clickbaity montages
You can also find some I made for friends in the past.


Here's my old channel when I used to be a Battlefield youtuber and thought it would get bills paid (it didnt )

https://www.youtube.com/user/1080PixelGaming


But yeah definitely down to help with the behind the scenes tech stuff.


edit:

Regarding people wanting to learn different stuff. If your interested in video editing and special effects I highly recommend just going to

http://www.videocopilot.net/

and clicking any tutorial , doesnt matter if its advanced , beginner, or seemingly useless to what you want to learn. Just click it and follow it all the way through even if your final product doesn't look anything like the one in the video it's an excellent way to learn different techniques.

Even something like this Iron Man HUD effect tutorial teaches you a bunch of commands you will end up using in every day videos (plus its a good starting point for learning to work with 3D space and layering)

I’ll ask here since I think the answer would be useful to have public, but what are the goals and ideas behind each area? Are there specific themes or content you’re looking for in terms of say YouTube? Commentary, video versions of site content, documentary, analysis, etc.? Or is that something to be decided by whoever comes on board?

^It’s been an ongoing discussion in the discord! Indeed, making video versions of some of the threads here was mentioned recently, ha. Right now, the focus (far as YouTube goes) is on polished, quality, deep-dive and analysis stuff, I reckon. More light-hearted content (such as parodies) will come later (hopefully ).
