    Ok, so I was on the main site this morning, when I realized that ED's format has started to age a bit. A good chunk of the site's articles are from back before a lot of other internet communities also started to police general bullshit and faggotry. Sites like twitter and youtube already have communities of cringel0rds and reactors that do a lot of similar stuff to what ED has been doing for so long.

    I'm kind of wondering if there are any other EDiots who would definitely be interested in the site possible hosting video or having a curated community channel or some shit where we could have videos up, showing our "Journalistic Excellence" in that format. I know a lot of editors write shit that would straight up just work better if it were recorded.

    Just putting the idea out there but I think it would be pretty cool.

    The idea of some kind of ed video series had come up before. I think it could work but it would take a lot of planning collaboration and effort for sure, like some kind of ed video committee or something.

    I mean, if the idea gets support from enough members than it would be easy enough to try and put the whole thing in motion. I think the easiest way to go about it would just be to make a channel on youtube and get some site mods who would be ok with posting on the behalf of any of the members who had made stuff. I imagine there would have top be rules and a format for making videos for the channel but getting it out there would probably be the easiest part.

    Nobody will give a legitimate shit until the ground work is laid out it and the outlook is promising, anything before that is seen as masturbatory.
    Come with a solid plan of attack, including what's needed, scheduling and a pilot, then you may gain some traction and the glory of contribution.

    a lot of us spend 12 hours each Saturday watching shitty movies we have enough time to contribute to this. personally i wouldn't mind in helping write something, i sound austistic as shit so no in front of camera stuff, which i find tacky, people don't like seeing neckbeards in front of a camera saying shit. it would be better to just have someone with a good voice say this stuff while imagines from the article appear. i mean we have the best photoshoppers and good writers, the looks department is shit though.

    also we need to keep it short, most people hate anything longer than 20 minutes

    that said i just remembered one of my favorite parts of ED is when the article says one thing but it hyperlinks to something else, which you don't get the humor of if you don't have someone reading those words out loud. as seen in that scene from thank you for smoking when jk simmions says environmentalist when he really means pussy.

    the problem is that it would be career ruining for anyone here to star in a series where they talk about kikes deserving the holocaust and dindus are awful.

    but hopefully one of the musically inclinded people here will provide a theme song.

    edIT: 7-15 minutes seems to be a sweet spot for explaining bullshit

    also, again a personal thing, no smash cuts, its annoying as shit, and if you have something to say you should be able to do it in one take, so if we are to need a different take we should disguise it by showing an image or video inbetween. for those that don't know what the fuck i'm talking about, its this

    I read the script and I'm thinking something more along the lines of "This week in stupid" kind-of, but possibly with a live host in front of a camera. Also you can easily lampoon something and talk shit about it without going so far that you become unemployable.

    Yeah, I imagine we could have some kind of standard-format, mascotish character that would represent whoever makes the videos. Kind of like way back when Newgrounds was represented by those weird ass Strawberry Clock characters.

    I would like to make two co-hosts, A-tan and E-tan, who would always antagonize each other.

    That way we are not restricted to using AE-tan who is already an established (female) character.

    I think the job should go to whichever idiots willing to put themselves out there representing such a fucking cesspool, I imagine they would have to be relatively articulate as well tho.

    weezus, sugar bombs, ilj, endsenten, likeicare, wiz, are all relatively articulate.

    that said animation is definietly the better idea, a-tan and e-tan. but then that leads to who the fuck will spend all that time making the video

    agreed, while yes, u can make fun of people without getting in trouble IRL, there are some people who are veeeerrry sensitive, and if we make fun of one thing it might offend some retard, who goes to the wiki, sees say, the lolicon articles or something else full of ridiculous hyperbole and then suddenly we are all child molesting retrobates. We would have to divorce ourselves from the wiki, which is gay. Also seconding the animating thing, its time consuming and we are not newgrounds.

    I'm starting the script for an about 5 minutes-ish pilot. I'm going to be talking about chunks of recent news pertaining to the usual shit on ED, so if anyone has anything in particular they want to be in it, let me know.
    If it was going to be news though it should be recent, also drawing directly from articles doesn't leave us with much, considering everything worth talking about is TL;DR and 10 minutes on the entire internet lifetime of some camho or Deviantautist sounds a bit iffy if you're trying to upload more than like once every two weeks.

    Then again, if there are a lot of contributors doing different videos, it would be easy enough to keep a pretty good schedule.

    Since that's what literally 95% of animation up on Youtube is, I think you're answering your own question.
