The Clock has started!
I am happy to announce that The #vVvCommunity Episode 1 - will go live Thursday June 14!
I give thanks to everyone that has been following my little updates on the show, Its now in crunch time, the main thing right now is money! But as long as people are interested, then i'll be putting money into this show. I'm looking forward to all your feedback when the show starts, and will be happy to change things up from episode to episode.
I will keep the poll up in the main thread for which day you guys would rather have the show play on, but for now thursday will be the new home for the #vVvCommunity. I'm still always looking for more ideas on any subject, about anything so your always welcome to PM me or Email me at PrEeNsCommunity@gmail.com. I'm going to start making practice shows to fully test everything out, and on thursday the 7th i will be posting a Pre-Show episode explaining everything for the first episode.
Before the show starts there's a couple of things you guys can start doing.
* When tweeting about something your doing in the community add #vVvCommunity
* Get in the habit of checking the hashtag #vVvCommunity
Things I'm going to be doing before the show starts,
* Practice shows
* Continue to grow the prize pool for the contests
* Start using the #vVvCommunity everyday
So again Thanks to everyone for your support, This will be the last entry in this blog, but i will have a new blog that will run the duration of the Shows Life. Have a good one,
Its time everyone to get involved. This entry will be focused around Q&A, and a couple of updates. So to get started there's been 300+ views on this blog so its time to find out what you guys think. I want you to send in your Feedback, Ideas, Criticisms, and dislikes about everything I've said since the beginning. This show is for the vVvCommunity, so feedback is the best way you guys can improve the show, and process. So right about one thing or post about everything, you have a wide variety of topics. Anything from "The Show", Prizes, Contests, and anything else you would like to say. Your comments or questions will be used in the next blog, You can leave your comments below, PM me, or send an email to preenscommunity@Gmail.com
Updates: The intro song to the show has been recorded, and all thats left is to mix it and it will be done, I started testing audio and video quality on my stream, and I've been looking up on ways to create a energy drink for vVv. Things that i have left to do are finish preparations for the show, the release of the vVvCommunity facebook page, and the main thread. One of the last two will be completed shortly so u can look foward to that. So till next time
Back For More!?
This part of the blog wont be too long I`m going to talk a little about what I'm doing, my plans, and what i need, before i start the show. As i said earlier i have started writing an intro song to the show with a local artist from where i live ( Montreal, Quebec, Canada ), so here is a little bit more information,
The artist - Slik Jack, Underground HipHop artist, Music can be found on YOUTUBE. I`m really exited about working with him, the intro song is really coming along. I hope everyone likes it. IF anyone wants to mess around and make a song it will be played on the show. All content from the community will be played, So go crazy and show me your style and imagination.
Prizes - I talked about prizes before and i have even more ideas! I will have an official prize list posted on the main thread for the show but here is a couple more ideas that i may or may not have stolen from the merchandising section of vVv forum. Calenders ( near the end of the year ), Hats, Bags, GamerGrub, vVv Energy Drink <--- ( Really Exited about this one ) and still have a secret one that i dont want to mention until its completed!
Need - So as of now, to get the show operational i need to finish the facebook page for #vVvCommunity, Create the main thread on the forum where all the information can be found from week to week, do a couple of test episodes to insure quality, and how i am going to do everything, acquire the prizes for the show, i will be needing some overlays for the show, and to make the Pre-Show episode for the week before the season premiere.
Finally Sending your feedback, Your ideas, And your Content! You will be able to do this a couple of ways. PM me on vVv Website, or Email me at PrEeNsCommunity@gmail.com . There will be specific subject titles depending on what you will be posting about, im not sure what they are going to be but i will let everyone know before hand. I will have a specific procedure for people to send there content in and it will be easy for you to send and for me to read.
From the words of DoomHammer
So I went into a bit of details about the idea of the show. Today i will be revealing everything Ive got on the subject.
The Show will be directly influenced by the hole community. ( or the participating members ) Everything you guys want to see and talk about will be included. So here are some aspects about it.
I think its safe to say the community loves to play games, but not everyone plays the game. It can often be hard to find people playing the same game as you ( Especially when that game is not one of the top played games ). So there will be a game of the week. People will nominate games that there playing and the game that gets the most nominees will be crowned game of that week and will have a part on the show to promote it and get more of the community playing it. We will review the game, maybe have guests that nominated the video speak about what they love about etc.
There is a lot of new topics being posted everyday and its almost impossible to check them all out, The vVv-Gaming forum is a large place and specific parts of the forum may be foreign to some people. Many of the community members end up in "clicks" and stay in specific forums like Starcraft 2 section. So there will be a section on the show that will talk about all different threads that are popping up day by day.
There will be a lot of contests, I'm hopping to have a contest giveaway for every episode. Contests with awesome prizes that range from vVv Gear, vVv Sponsored gear ( steelseries ), The game of the week, and more prizes that I have in mind that i would like to keep secret until the time comes. Some contest ideas i have include community members creating fan art, or music, the creation of a drinking game to go along with the episode as it plays, a viral video guessing game. These are all just ideas from a random night of brainstorming, there will be a lot more from me, and hopefully ideas from the community as well.
Announcements and articles
Anyone from the community can make announcements to be shared on the show, either by me or themselves. It can be anything varying from local tournaments, Ideas for vVv, New Blog. As well as random articles written about anything that the community wants me to follow. If there's a game that's not out, or some kind of new technology that people think should be followed, i will follow it, and when ever there is some new information it will be shared.
These are all ideas for the show, its not final and there's much more to come. This show will be dependent on the participation of others, I hope that after a lot of episodes people will be doing it themselves and taking interest in what other people are doing. For the next part in my blog i will be describing the methods of communication and how you can submit information and ideas about the show.
Also very important, IF you have questions about what you have read in this article don't be shy and ask away, i can always include the question and answer in the next part, or if you'd prefer privately. If you have any ideas for what Ive talked about PM me and let me know, or make a comment below. Keep checking for more updates on the show and the hole project, Have a good one
P.S Just to keep you guys updated on things I'm working on me and a local artist from Montreal are working on a theme song for the show, More info on that to come
