The podcast is going to take some interesting logistical organization. The first step we should undertake is to create a calendar with timelines, deadlines, etc. We can send invitations out so that we can get RSVPs for people to commit their time.

If you would like to be involved in the podcasts, please add this Google shared calendar, using the following steps:
  1. Sign in to your Google account. If you don't have a Google account please create one here. Note that just having a Gmail account does not mean that you have a Google account.
  2. Go to Google Calendar to see your calendar. Note that unless you're already using Google Calendar, yours will be blank.
  3. Add the Blogcasting Azeroth calendar by clicking this button:

  4. You'll see the calendar's name -- Blogcasting Azeroth -- on the left hand side of your calendar view. You can change the color of the calendar by clicking the little arrow to the right of the calendar's name and choosing the one you like.
  5. Don't forget to add reminders when you get appointments so that you will get an email or text message ahead of time.


Please email me or post to this thread to let me know you've added the calendar and would like access to update/change the appointments. I'll need your Google Account name (same as your Gmail address).

The next step is to talk times and dates. I think we need to have a planning meeting first. We can probably do this on IM or Skype. IM might be easier because we'll have a transcript. I'll write up an agenda for the planning meeting if people are interested in doing it this way.

Way to step it up a notch, GD. I'm really impressed =). I've added the Azeroth calendar to my GMail.

How about a logistics meeting on the weekend at some point? Most of us probably have to raid at some point during the evenings.

My raiding schedule PST:

Tues/Thurs: 1730-2100
Sunday: 1530-2100

I'm free anytime after that if anyone's up for a late night chat (will suck for the east coasters) or on my off nights.

OooOOoo... we can even embed the calendar into a web page. I don't think it will work here because HTML is off, but here's the code.

Code:
<iframe src="http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?height=400&amp;wkst=1&amp;bgcolor=%23ffff33&amp;src=4bbe4gjid9kmh4aomdi5q6gsn0%40group.calendar.google.com&amp;color=%231B887A&amp;ctz=America%2FLos_Angeles" style=" border-width:0 " width="600" height="400" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

I have added it to my Google Calendar: lkearbey@gmail.com (I'm trusting you looney-toons with my personal e-mail here!! :wink: )

I think a planning meeting is an excellent idea!! I would prefer voice chat, but the transcript is a good idea too, whatever works for the group.

my raid schedule is (CST)

Wed/Thur : 6:30-10:00
Sat : 1-5
Sun : 4:30-8:30

Late night or after raid time is fine with me as well.

Friday afternoons are the best times for me to do podcasts, but sundays are also good.

(Game Dame, were you able to download the intro?)

And yes, I do check every so often. I'm just in midterm crunch mode right now (which ends Tuesday)

How about a logistics meeting Friday night (Feb. 15)? 6 PM PST? Ideally I'd like Galadria and BBB and whoever else is interested on board so we can get this show on the road.

- Topics. Lets get this out of the way. I'm not really big on discussions. Thinking on the fly was never a particular strength of mine. I know Galadria had a LOT of stuff in mind particularly with patch 2.4 =).
- Time/Date. We'll hammer out a convenient time for as many people as possible on when we actually shoot this thing.
- Speakers. It's good to see a lot of volunteers willing to speak and even willing to host (Bless them). Unfortunately, I don't believe it's practical to get EVERYONE willing to speak to speak on the same. I think it's better to 'spread out' the material so to speak. Let's figure who speaks first, about what, when.

Vent's the preferred method in this case. I'm willing to foot my Guild vent for the initial brief in any case.

Lets get replies in by Thursday afternoon. I'll wire out an email AND a PM via forums with the necessary vent information to those that want in on this.

I'm in for Fri evening. I have a vent server we can use. No one really uses it any more. I'll e-mail it to whomever is going to be in on this meeting.

Back to raiding :-)

Skype would also work yes. But I don't know how to fiddle with Skype. All I know is vent's the standard for most guilds in existence and there's a server at our disposal. Skype's also P2P, from what I understand. It doesn't matter to me what medium we use. Lets just get this ball rolling. If for whatever technical reason you can't use vent, then we can switch to Skype.

How long are we planning to be on this meeting? I have a bunch of school stuff I need to do today, and I need to fit this into my day plan.

Anyone who plans on participating in this meeting and did not get the Vent info, e-mail me at lkearbey@gmail.com

I'll try to check several times between now and then.
