(re-post from FB NWSF Group)
So I had this idea of creating a NW marvel blog, so people who capture footage of local events (tournaments, casuals, highlights, combo vids etc) have a place to display their videos on one concentrated website that everyone can go to and view. I would probably give the login to select individuals that are interested in keeping the website alive with new content. I don’t exactly want a free-for-all everyone has rights to log into it because I don’t want it to get trolled or randomly deleted. This would be for MvC 3 and MvC 2. I know Preppy has a huge backlog of recorded marvel 2 content and I’m not trying to step on his archive at all. We could also post up other things like Tournament results, I’m open to suggestions.
What do you guys think? good idea/bad idea? Who would you like to see uploading videos? I don’t know exactly who is going to be out recording footage, I know slash is out there doing his streaming and we’ve had a handful of people here and there using their cameras for events. I think this has potential to take off and be an online hot spot for the NW to watch what each other is up to, as well as outsiders to gain a view into our community.
Only downside I could see right now is the competitive edge getting in the way of footage being released - STSFN, Don’t let the competition know my new tricks, etc.
Also I was considering using a combination of Youtube and Tumblr since they’re both easy, though I’m open to suggestions. Someone uploads a video, tells so-and-so to put it on the blog, said person checks it out and puts it up. I’m not even proposing that I be a “leader” for this thing, more of a group effort born from the fact that I want to be able to have one website to go on and see new shit that gets posted instead of people just randomly uploading to website A here, youtube B there, random facebook video, some link on the forum, etc.
