I was thinking about another way to promote Uncyclopedia some more. And then I realized it. A YouTube channel. UnTV. This could be a new trending idea. Please share your thoughts on this. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 07:26, February 26, 2011 (UTC)

Who would have the password? Everyone? Then everyone has equal power on the channel. Just admins? They'd have to post all the videos.
Not saying it isn't a good idea, I just don't think we as a community make enough videos for how much of a hassle it would be (I could very well be wrong) Jackofspades (talk) 07:34, February 26, 2011 (UTC)
How about just admins. I'll ask Chief if he can do it. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 07:51, February 26, 2011 (UTC)
We don't have a concentrated membership so much that we can get together to film sketches and stuff, and also I don't know if anyone is a film person. Those two things make an operation like this, while an ultimately awesome idea, completely unfeasible. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 09:56, February 26, 2011 (UTC)
Such a thing would help solve our video issue. In addition, I can probably get together the software to do video editing. The only thing I don't have is a webcam. I do have one, but it's attached to my laptop, and I'm not going to run around chasing people with my laptop. If we decide to do this, I do have a suggestion on how: We'd need a system in place where people can send in or submit videos to a video editor(s). That(those) individual(s) could then verify the video isn't hate baiting, porn, or anything like that, and then upload it to the youtube account. I think admin or not, about 3 or 4 individuals would be best to have the password. Any more and you get confusion and "cooks spoiling the broth" syndrome. Any less and you risk somebody either leaving the site or going crazy and uploading a bunch of terrible crap on there. Checks and balances and all that. In either case I think it's a good idea, but I don't know how the submitting videos part of it would work out. It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 03:20, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
Well, you could email the videos to the person(s) running it, I suppose. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 13:08, 27 February 2011
That's a terrible idea. Have you seen the average Uncyclopedian? Even the "attractive" ones really aren't good-looking enough to appear on video. So much flesh. So little clothing. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:01, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
You don't even need to record people in many cases. I would love to do just some creative editing and voice work. I think there's a lot of potential in parodying children cartoons for example. Whether it flies or not though, I still think it's a great idea. It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 06:07, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
I've got a bit of experience doing this kind of thing and not to be a downer, but it's hard enough to put a video together when everyone's in the same place. One of my sketch groups made a spoof info-mercial of 4 minutes and it took us a month, and we had a professional video-editor in the mix. I'm not saying it can't be done, I'm just saying it isn't easy. ~ Humbuck Talk 18:45, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
We'll do it Terry Gilliam style animated. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 18:47, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
Was it pancake mix? Is it just me or did it suddenly get hungry in here? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:55, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
Someone mentioned pancakes?! 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 19:05, 27 February 2011

I have access to a pretty good camera and editing software, and I'm not totally inept at making videos, but I am, unfortunately, too ugly to film. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 21:41, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

I'm too pretty to film. I do have some rather epic 3D modelling and animation software, though. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 23:19, 27 February 2011
Having the stuff is the first step. I've got a bunch of what I think are funny scripts lying around, and just posted one of the easiest to film in my personal sandbox. It's short, only has two actors (one middle-aged male and the other a toddler) but still requires some of the basic post-production elements so it would provide the full taste of what it takes to film. Take a gander. ~ Humbuck Talk 03:38, February 28, 2011 (UTC)
I'm too lazy to do anything. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:45, 28 February 2011

This is one of those things...

That is going to fizzle unless somebody takes initiative. Here's what I'll do. I'll make a new e-mail account, use that to make an "uncyclopedia" youtube channel. From there I'll make an example movie, maybe a "name-space for it" here, and then I'll share the password with a few people experienced w/ video editing. If there's any disagreements about who should have the password or if uncyc should even be on youtube or anything else, we can cross that bridge when we come to it. Let me set things up first, lest this whole thing suffers the fate of my mother's first born son: killed in the crib. This really needs the ready fire aim approach.

Once it's set up, we can debate who will use it/run it/etc. I'm excited but cautious. In the past when there has been new change like this, disagreement has choked off something that could really be good for the site. I don't want the same fate to fall onto this. Likewise, it could just as easily be killed with apathy. I'm enthusiastic about this, and want to show people that this can be done, and unlike the terrible actors at cracked, we can actually be funny. It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 03:36, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

I have plenty experience in video editing. I'm at Humber studying visual effects. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 03:37, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

I made a logo too. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 20:46, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

You get doubleplus lollipop points. I have the accounts set up. I'm just working on a short sample video so we actually have something set up. Then I'll see about setting up the next step. It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 03:35, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
What version of Sophia did you use, Lollipop? It looks extrapolated. This version would look sharper: File:Puzzle Potato Dry Brush.png. —rc (t) 04:07, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
The channel's up: UncyclopediaTV. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 05:28, March 2, 2011 (UTC)
