I'd love to help create a channel for our project, or help manage one. I do have some experience with this (over my decade of YT-ing), even though I don't upload or sort videos that regularly. But I'm good with adding and editing playlists, so if anyone has any interest in me helping with that bit of the promo (at least for collected existing videos or reuploaded videos), I will be very glad to help.
I've noticed that one a while back. Yes, if that's our channel, it could use some redesigning. Sorting stuff into playlists and so on. Linking to videos on other people's channels, if they're too hard to move right now. Adding links to affiliated channels (channels that have provided other TDM videos, whether on editing/modding, or LPs, or anything else). Adding a reasonably detailed but brief description for the whole channel.
Glad to hear it my friend. Thats bascily what would be needed, IMO. Sorting things into collections or playlists, linking to relevant videos and other channels. We definitely dont need an all encompassing list of every darkmod video out there, just the most important ones we feel an official channel should point players/would be mappers to. In my eyes, the official trailers, some quality reviews, and the meat of TDM, the tutorial series. If we are getting ambitious, links to the various lets play series around.
Its just that if you go on youtube and search for darkmod, even darkmod tutorial or some such generic query, you get a lot of random lets play videos, a bunch of scattered tutorials, unrelated stuff, and it would be nice to have a channel there that lists all the essential material the community would want to showcase.
As for your concerns, Anderson, I dont really see a reason for it to be the exclusive job of a team member, the access could be open for anyone in the community, and while the channel could be managed mainly by someone knowledgeable like Petike, as a volunteer, pretty much anyone could step up in the future and it could be a bit of a wikipedia page, where people can go and tidy it up if they feel its needed. Even if it is to remain exclusive to the team, once the main work is done, we would already have a very good source of material set up for the future, despite members moving on or occasional updates taking longer to happen.
