We need a TIMETABLE for the splitting of the visionOntv website into different sites: visionon.tv (video publishing and distribution) / streetreporter AND/OR mobilereporter (training and street reporter networks) / hack the media (build your own site and be part of the Open Media Network) / outreach site
I will try to write one up (RH)
FIRST VERSION OF http://visionon.tv/test
In one of the more egregious abuses of process I have ever seen, this page now no longer exists, and is now live as the homepage of http://visionon.tv. The previous homepage has been wiped also.
Below, Hamish proposes that nothing should happen to this site for 10 days. In practical terms this is impossible. We can't have a borked site (funding applications going in, etc). I therefore make a COUNTER-PROPOSAL to this, that we make the site barely functional by adding the images to the top, and try to fix the cross-domain nightmares which mean the players are simply black screens. I suggest the workflow images go through to holding pages, then at least people know that development is being done on the live site. When these two things are done, feedback can be sought. (RH)
All black and white line drawn (can use a splash of colour when instructed)
I like this, and has been consensed for a long time (RH)
NO TEXT ON TOP FRAME
Image is long and thin -
We need a blogging image – writing on a page We need a transmission image – camera and transmission tower We need embed a video – image of splicing on a film frame
As I have already said, In my opinion this will not communicate adequately what is for me the core concept of the site, i.e. what users can do - text is a necessity for this. The text can be just one word: write / upload / embed. For now they could just be holding images without links.
It is in any case difficult to get feedback from people who do not know that it is our intention to put this here. We therefore seem to disagree on the core concept of the site, because this version is being put out as version 1, without that element being present. (RH)
this is a process, takaco COULD NOT work out how to do what you whonted so its not in place, would be good to just have a holding image in there till she dose, we aim to have exacly what you whont there becouse the IS NO AUGMENT - the will be a workflow image, and when we take away the menue bar we can then add text to it (: (HC)
When we get the workflow as a holding image, then we have version 1, in my opinion. On workflow vs menus, I think it's right that you can either have workflow OR menu, but not both, and the new visionOntv site will be content-light enough to have just the three-options-workflow, which is an excellent way to go. The question remains whether we should have the menus on the bottom, as many sites do.(RH)
REPLACE TEXT NAME OF THE CHANNAL Each of the channels need a handwrite name (with small image embellishment) – can use a splash of orange, purple or blue (the existing coulers on the page).
We need a VOTV blogging editorial guideline in place.
This is made live – then we gather feedback (we don’t make any changes) for 10 days – then I make decisions on tweaking – we leave for 2 weeks. Then we move onto second stage.
So it's put out for feedback when this editorial guideline is done, as version 1? Or is this version 2? (RH)
Since writing the above yesterday, version 0.5 has replaced the visionOntv homepage, so we now need to perform a kind of rapid rescue. For severely practical reasons we can't have a borked site (funding applications going in, etc). I therefore make a COUNTER-PROPOSAL to this, that we make the site barely functional by adding the images to the top, and try to fix the cross-domain nightmares which mean the players are simply black screens. I suggest the workflow images go through to holding pages, then at least people know that development is being done on the live site. When these two things are done, feedback can be sought. (RH)
Have added some links to the grassroots channal on the test page http://visionon.tv/test we need to do this for each channel
Agreed, and I will do (RH)
news flash top right corner is a single image and a short line of text ONLY if you want more link to a sub page
Agreed, because the purpose of this site is to enable the publishing of video and text, and the embedding of video players. Nothing else! CJ training and networks are for streetreporter.org, and software development etc is for "hack the media". (RH)
