    Broadcasting World, Time To Change?

    We all love our broadcasting world, from those professionals who work for established land based broadcasters to voice over artists and to internet broadcasters / hobbyists.

    I see from time to time new members who don't read the rules and post immediately asking for voice overs for their net station, and VO professionals moaning about it and in some cases actually throwing in the towel and leave our social site.

    Reading through the chat box today I see one such cause for unhappiness and a suggestion for BW.

    Thinking about it maybe changing BW wouldn't be a bad thing after all.

    There are two main types of broadcasters, professional and amateur.

    Professionals won't ask for a freebie it will always be the amateurs, so can't we change to voice over section so only members who have made a limited number of posts post in the section by scripting and not just hope that these members just abide by the rules which they obviously don't.

    For this site to remain professional we need to stop these here today, gone tomorrow types from watering down our standards by asking for freebies when clearly they haven't contributed towards receiving them.

    Yep, i put in a 10 post minimum. If a user has under 10 posts, they see a message and a link to the rules

    Let me know if you have any other suggestions!

    I say we should remove the free voice overs for a month or two.

    Their a privilege. Not a right.

    Maybe a compromise .. You can ask but you may not receive? It's up to the VO people to respond or not. Put in the topic description that if they have not followed the rules .. It aint happening? If they did maybe. Obviously it helps the website traffic to have free and encourages new members. I think what we want are active members. Maybe consider adding the details that they can't ask again until 50 posts or something like that. Make a third request a 100 posts etc. I would think it would benefit all parties. Just an idea.

    I just saw something that made a lot of sense. In exchange for a free voiceover they provide a link to vo artist. Links are a valuble commodity on the internet and it would at minimum give the vo person some kind of compensation. Having been and still am a SEO person, I know the value of external links. Granted there is no way to get your vo back if they choose to remove your link, there is the possibility to check the link and if it's not there no vo person will respond to the request.
    Sorry I'm brainstorming this subject.
