Summer is always hard work for any internet comunity, most radio stations suffer as people are out enjoying the long days and the sunshine aswell as taking vacations.

 

this place wont die as it has a growing memberlist and james works hard when he can,

 

i did reply to your licensing post so maybe you can have a read on my pov regarding your post.

I'm afraid....it is blatantly obvious this place is dieing away.

 

I said as much some time ago, and was shouted down (for no reason)?

Let's hope for some REAL action around here very SOON!!.... and I don't mean false promises, sorry!!!

 

I feel like I am almost single handedly rowing this boat lately.....

If I have helped you with a Freebie- please be kind enough to add a link from your own site or blog to mine- thanks! http://arthurburton.net

I think BW is at a point of most forums during the summer, I mean, the summer, people travel, go outside, vacations and all kinds of stuff. Me? I work a summer job as a sailing instructor and 3 nights I spend presenting at the local university station. So, needless to say, there are alot of busy beavers during the summer lol.

 

I'm sure something will "spark" once the summer traveling dies down.

It is winter in Australia, I have exams, negotiated study, work and some family heath issues. Summer (In Aus) is the time for this place to shine, when i have no College, days upon days to relax and work on the site. Im planning to hire enthusiastic people around these times next year to get the place full of content.

 

One thing is that we are not getting much revenue at the moment, times are tough and one thingpeople dont do is advertise.

 

Dont worry, alot of other rival sites are not busy! Its just that time of year, EOFY in Australia so its HECTIC!

I'm a strong believer of posting when you have something constructive to say rather than just idle chit chat.

 

This site has a growing volume of users who come back regularly and make us of the information that is being provided. Long live BW!

Very true QMR, for one i will not give up on BW. Sure some excellent members have left but it is the cycle of a forum, one day they will return! While im here i might as well tell everybody about the BW Site Management Portal. There is alot more than running a forum. We support a site as big as our forum with articles and more, we manage and extend this every way possible.

 

The site Management Portal is a new portfolio of stuff for the staff to keep. I am currently keeping this just for myself but will be distributed to staff soon. Basicly its the picture below. It contains invoices, advertisers, promotion info and more, our staff will have more extensive knowlege of promotions and current happenings. Anyway, we also have a Site Construction Portal. Which is drawings and infor about new sections on our site. Currently we are trialling a new Broadcast section, it has been developed and will be released along with other sections. We are hiring volunteers to write (trying to, its hard!) so we can keep a steady flow of users on our site.

 

There are a few photos i have attached below of things i have been doing in the last 3 months for BW...

 

Photo 1: Is a photo of our Site Management Portal Folder.

Photo 2: Is the workload of designs and layouts including the dedicated laptop full of coding.

Photo 3: Is our newly coded broadcast section, contains tutorials and step-by-step guides on how to find a job in Broadcasting and also start a LPFM! More to come but other sections will follow this format. We have also added a tutorials section and a guides section!

How do they say it in English ... I'm gonna drop my 2 cents ?

 

Is anyone of the pessimists thinking about the Summer holiday period ?

ok .. Currently its Winter at Australia .. but most of the continents do have these days a Summer time shedule

and during that time of the year people (both broadcasters and listeners) are enjoying the sunny days, holidays at a foreign country and if these people don't have the money to make a trip abroad they are busy working at home by doing some maintenance etc etc

Since mid-June I receive even lesser emails at my privat account .. and thats happening every year .. untill the start of September ..

I have both friends and contacts who are having a regular daily job, others are independent, are having children or none, are married or not etc etc

Some friends of Me are into the music business as singer or have an agency, both have this period of the year a FULL shedule from early morning untill late Night ...

to some of these people I don't even have to send a regular email .. because they don't have the time to read it and some of their accounts are "over-quota" .. so if urgent I have to contact them by mobile phone

A friend of Me who's into construction works as independent told Me lately - quote : "damn, I'm getting crazy, I can't reach anyone if needed, if I make an order at compagny "A" I have to wait untill compagny "B" can make the delivery of the goods because both have a different Summer holiday shedule, and thats every Year the same for about 2 Months (July, August) .. so his conclusion is that he is currently doing some small construction works who are in general don't gives the highest profits .. but who have to be done anyway" :end of quote

 

I guess this situation is very similar at other countries all around the world

so patience can be helpfull :)

Visit and listen @ BW !

Well, I for one would like to see this site overtake certain other sites, and do it sooner rather than later!

I think the policy regarding newbies asking for voice overs needs refreshing too.

 

If someone asks politely- and later say thank you, that is good enough for me.

 

If they come swaggering in here calling themselves DJ this or DJ that and almost demand anything, they can s*d off to RD. Sometimes, people who are running a small station, can't wait a few days to post here two or three times before asking. Radio has never worked slowly, everything had to be done yesterday!

 

I remember doing whole 60 min Documentaires inc. scripting and editing and interviews on a UHER and a REVOX in 5 days for a station. I ran out of editing tape very quickly!!!

 

Now, with digital editing, that could be brought down to 2-3 days quite easily. I am afraid the world doesn'rt wait for anybody- and never has...

 

My point is, let's all go forward- but remember who you all are. Or you may lose the reason for BW in the first place, and if you try to change your identity too much- the bull**** factor tends to take over... and Gawd knows I HATE Bull****!

And Philippe, I take your point about the summer, I don't think it affects forums and the like that much anymore, what with wi-fi and all that nowadays- the net is almost evrywhere. So, people will still pop in!

 

Apologies for the long rant- I must be feeling better Nurse!

Mate, i agree. I dont wanna take a 3 month break otherwise i wont get enthusiastic. One thing im known to do is to code, on a piece of paper, on my hand or sometimes on the computer :P:biggrinthumb:.

 

I can safely say, and staff can back me up in saying, we are doing alot of work backstage. Our staff forum has just overtaken our Podcasting forum post wise. We have threads in the staff forum reaching over 4 pages, we are doing heckloads to keep this place running and up to date! It may not seem it at the moment but staff are working hard, me? Im working very VERY hard! (Y)

HI James, just keep your eye ON THE BALL!

 

I am doing loads of other stuff too at the moment, not least loads of hard physical Construction work!!!

 

And At my tender age it is knackering, believe me!

 

But I still pop in here all the time, why- because I'm crazy? No (wellI am actually), I do it because I like the place overall, and because I want it to beat the comepetiton! ;-)

Having said that, I would like to see some people back here that have gone :-(

Back to the real work!

I see the same thing every year during the summer....its very quiet....no one is on...and so on....All the forums I am on are exactly the same. It is a natural quiet time and it picks up after September.

So, what is a Voiceover Specialist when it's at home?

Yup once the dark nights set in you get most of europe back at their pc's

 

summer is always hard as people are too busy doing real life stuff and enjoying family time.

 

as for people trying to spoil the site there is no need for them to be here if they dont like it that much,

 

Too many forums loose too many good people because of eejuts and there is no problem in having hardline policies to keep a place happy :)

He volunteered to write for BW as our Voiceover Specialist but it looks like its a no-goer! We have nobody to write articles for our Imaging section now.

 

Having said that, I would like to see some people back here that have gone :-(

Don't forget Threeten!!! He is a great guy!

Now his posts are the ones i miss reading, he was an expert at running an internet station. I hope he is still going and passing on his knowlege! (Y)
