Hi all,

After watching the glorious Anime Expo live stream (I thought I could stop, but it became so addicting after certain individuals appeared.... lol) I wanted to start a thread to generate some ideas for CR that might help improve the experience even more.

The main thing I could suggest is having a way for con attendees to text chat back to the viewers. That way the con attendees can plug their CR account names or other social media accounts to us viewers easier. Currently the only ways are speaking it or writing on something and pretty much knocking the camera over to focus it on screen... Yea viewers can type it back and are decent at getting it correct, but why not make it easier?

Further increasing their ability to interact with such a broad audience would only encourage them to stick around the CR boothe even longer I'd think... It could be a simple comment system like you guys already have under your videos that ONLY THEY can post to (something like "ConAttendee says: <stuff>" or an embedded IRC for them only.

I wouldn't involve the viewer base in the text chat since it would get flooded super easy. Allowing them to text chat back would be super awesome to visit their social sites... Since it would be near/around the boothe, a CR employee should be able to keep an eye out for people abusing it.

The second thing I'd ask for improvement would be some type of MINOR moderation of the chat. Whomever or the Artificial Intelligence does an excellent job right now, and I'm not suggesting someone be there to ban everyone spamming. Heck, I know I was spamming things i'll admit that... I think what I'm asking for here is just to control some people that like to spam LONG walls of text continuously without changing much... I know there is a way to turn off the chat overlay but... I'm just looking to improve the experience for those who like to leave it on regardless.

Any other SMALL ideas people?

The show schedule below the video could be placed into a Google Calender...

I could manage it for you! Just put a little CSS/Javascript to make the calender into a small dropdown... aww yea. That seems like a small idea... lol. I'm just rambling...

I was at their booth at ax and i can see how could that work. Problem is that there were so many people at their booth and so many people wanted to go to that live stream which is why most of the time the staff is busy doing other things, especially during saturday. I don't think the staff would actually have time to police the people during the live stream.

I can see it being hard to police for sure... Maybe they could impose a limit on how many posts can be placed at a given time. That way people don't try and chat forever. Something like 1 comment every 10 minutes or something would suffice. This way those who are willing to stick around can post.
