On the success of 12 hour telethons and the future of Portalarium live streaming Pertaining to https://www.youtube.com/user/Portalarium/videos Also pertaining to live video on https://www.twitch.tv/shroudoftheavatar Problems: 1. Searching for Portalarium live stream archival video on YouTube can be difficult due to the inconsistent naming convention used in the past. 2. The format of the 12 hour live stream has changed, improved, and outgrown the titles utilized in the past. 3. Unclear naming conventions create confusion and frustration. Examples of past titles of live stream events: Fall into Winter Telethon The Summer Telethon of the Avatar The Spring Festival of the Avatar Telethon! The Wondrous Winter Telethon of the Avatar End of Summer Telethon of the Avatar! Shroud of the Avatar Cyber Monday 12-Hour Streamathon One Year Anniversary Celebration Shroud of the Avatar Dev Chat with Richard Garriott and Tracy Shroud of the Avatar Live Stream! Space Bards Neon Shroud of the Telethon Other naming conventions of videos include titles with: Community of the Avatar Pen of the Avatar Hangout of the Avatar Deep Dive Post Mortem Dev Chat Dev Cam Solution: Adopt a standard naming convention for live stream events that better reflect the content of the video and improve archival search ability. Action From this point forward I propose the following naming conventions: For future 12 hour telethons Summer Round Table 2017 Fall Round Table 2017 Winter Round Table 2017 Spring Round Table 2018 Monthly postmortems will continue with titles R39 Postmortem R40 Postmortem R41 Postmortem Other future video content should adhere to similar standardized naming conventions. The video description can include additional information about the content of the video that would otherwise clutter the title. On the Proposed Event Titles The word telethon holds the definition of a long television program that tries to raise money for a charity by asking people to call during the program and make a donation. The connotation of a round table better fits the theme of the game and lives stream content bringing to mind medieval Arthurian gatherings and celebrations. For reference: britannica.com definition of Round Table: "in Arthurian legend, the table of Arthur, Britain’s legendary king, which was first mentioned in Wace of Jersey’s Roman de Brut (1155). This told of King Arthur’s having a round table made so that none of his barons, when seated at it, could claim precedence over the others. The literary importance of the Round Table, especially in romances of the 13th century and afterward, lies in the fact that it served to provide the knights of Arthur’s court with a name and a collective personality." Closing thoughts: Postmortem is preferred over Avatar Autopsy. The drinking element might bring to mind a buzz session. A conference, seminar, or symposium all seem too formal for this format. Be excellent to each other. And... PARTY ON, DUDES!
