Creating a community run YouTube channel came up recently in a discussion about how to bring more traffic through the forum. A lot was suggested in the way of content, the overall direction of the channel, and what level of community involvement the project would require. I’ve compiled these suggestions, cut some, and organized the rest into something of an initial proposal.

This thread is primarily to generate some ideas/ suggestions for the future of this project. So if you have any ideas, or see anything in this initial proposal which you think is a bad idea, please speak up.

That said; this thread is also recruitment drive. This is not a project that a few users can do alone, we need more than suggestions and discussion; we need volunteers. Let me know if you want to get involved. Without further ado;

 

Why create a OneManga YouTube?

Obvious, but I’ll say it anyway; to attract new users to the site. There are some pretty crappy manga review/ discussion channels out there (shallow discussion, horrible hosts and poor production quality) that get 10 000+ view per video. If we put our heads together our channel could generate similar views, and attract new users in numbers we haven’t seen since 3.0’s inception.

I think that there should be more than 1 host, and more than 1 guy creating videos / content for it.

1-All video editting should be done by the same person having some sort of cloud or w/e storage where we can upload the videos would make everything easier.

 

2-Host, more then one host is needed. id say 4 would be nice.

 

3-vintage anime song as ending not intro 

 

4-I wont be getting a decent desktop/ nor good editor untill summer , so i wont be able to make anything fancy for now.Leave the channel ending to me tho. this i should be able to do it properly.

 

5-If theres anything else that i can help with i wll.

 

6-In  accordance with another project (Onemanga original hosting) I can show you how to monetize the channel so all the funds can go straight to omf, since they were talking about money issue, youtube channel can help there.

I don't have a very good mic. I do have a Youtube Channel of my own, but I'd be happy to participate once I get a decent mic. 


 

I can also help with intro/outro logos and thumbnails if it's really necessary.

I think that there should be more than 1 host, and more than 1 guy creating videos / content for it.

 

The short term proposal assumes that not many users will want to be involved in making the videos while the channel is small.

But I agree, it is the forum's youtube after all. The ideal situation would be having enough community involvement to have a different host for pretty much every category of video (bleach host, op host, ft host, news host, recommendations host etc). Though I don't see the channel getting enough support for that to happen until its been uploading for a while.

 

1-All video editting should be done by the same person having some sort of cloud or w/e storage where we can upload the videos would make everything easier.

 

2-Host, more then one host is needed. id say 4 would be nice.

 

3-vintage anime song as ending not intro 

 

4-I wont be getting a decent desktop/ nor good editor untill summer , so i wont be able to make anything fancy for now.Leave the channel ending to me tho. this i should be able to do it properly.

 

5-If theres anything else that i can help with i wll.

 

6-In  accordance with another project (Onemanga original hosting) I can show you how to monetize the channel so all the funds can go straight to omf, since they were talking about money issue, youtube channel can help there.

 

1) One person editing all the 'short term' content (4 videos a week) is fine. But one person editing the expanded content (up to 10 videos a week) isn't possible, it would be too time consuming for that person. I agree that uploading will be difficult to organize with a couple of editors, the solution might be to have one editor collect the work of all the others before uploading. Though that's more of a discussion for the future, we only need 1 editor initially.

 

2) Yep, if 4 hosts volunteer then we'll have 4 hosts. But all of them have to be committed to the channel, can't have any slacking off for a week and not getting their videos done. That said, I can handle the 'short term' content alone pretty easily, so even if we don't get another host for a while its not a big deal.

 

3) That'll probably be the way to go, as well as only having an outro graphic.

 

4) I've got some experience editing, and some decent software, I can help

 

5) Appreciated, I'll definitely be able to find something for you to do  :P

 

6) This is a fantastic idea, and I agree that we should give the ad revenue to the forum. Two points though. firstly, while the channel is young we shouldn't have any ads, people are reluctant enough to watch content on a small channel, we need a solid viewer base before putting up ads. Secondly the money generated from ads should go to the forums because more traffic = higher server costs. So we'll just be offsetting our own impact there.

 

I don't have a very good mic. I do have a Youtube Channel of my own, but I'd be happy to participate once I get a decent mic. 


 

I can also help with intro/outro logos and thumbnails if it's really necessary.

 

:D awesome i'll be in touch

intro graphics aren't necessary. Thumbnails can just be a manga panel or something. Definitely need an outro graphic tho.

 

I'd offer to help but I don't have a reliable mic or place to do anything youtube related. 3x

 

Watching/ liking the channel's content is plenty helpful :)

I honestly wouldnt move a finger to help OneMangaF community until I see an Admin doing legit work to help aswell. If these boards show no leadership then what is the point for working on something that is not even yours in the first place?

The time spent here is yours, mine, his, hers, theirs, ours. Maybe some Admins lack a certain enthusiasm or sense of adventure. Maybe some are aware they lack certain qualities needed to properly promote this place. Maybe some don't care. Maybe some care but are content with letting the community handle itself and would only step in if it get's too toxic, not bothering too much with the "size" issue. Maybe you are just wrong with your assumptions and they actually put in more work than you can tell. If someone decides to take on such a challenge and invest their time in such a project, it's clear that for them there is a point. They enjoyed their time spent here and think that a larger community would make their future time spent here even more enjoyable. You don't have to, and simply can't own everything you like. Their desire to step up and do something, if not praised, should at least not be questioned for being pointless just because one can't relate with their actions and desires.
