h2g2 Operations

Do you like to hang around on Youtube, watching cats and learning Stuff? Are you subscribed to Youtube channels like 'Today I Found Out'? Do you have a computer (and maybe a microphone)? Can you work well with others?

If so, we need your help! We want to make the h2g2 Youtube channel the go-to place for Fun Facts from the Edited Guide.

Can you do one or more of these things?

Help select and prepare Guide Entries for broadcast?
Read things aloud in your best Radio Voice?
Prepare art?
Do layout?
Make a movie? (Quiet on the set!)
Find, record, or upload legal music?

These skills are needed, and we'll probably think of more,but it's going to require a group effort, kind of like flying the Heart of Gold. If you think you're geek enough for the job, contact Milla.

For the Core Team,

Milla, Ops smiley - cogs

There was definitely an account, it's even coded into the Guide to show videos from it with the right GuideML mark up.

Will see if I can find an article with a video in...

If the entry should have a video that's on YouTube from the h2g2 account, then it'll just need it's GuideML checking for it to show up. smiley - smiley

I checked the links and all was well.

I didn't think I would be able to do anything in relation to this, as I was embarrassed by my voice, but it turns out it's not that bad after all - I made a video smiley - biggrin

Now I just need to work out what to do with it... *goes to send e-mail*

I've popped an email to [email protected], as it suggested up there. This may have been sitting here for a while, but I'd be keen to get stuck into it! I've been needing a project, and I owe this community from back in the day. smiley - smiley

Oh gosh! I have completely forgotten to check the inbox! I mostly get requests for advertising and/or bots (?) wanting us to replace links in entries (and conversations!) with links to their own site.
