Opening up to the World!

Help us with submission standards

Here’s where you can help out. We need to create good guidelines for what can and can’t be published, and hopefully have a draft document pulled together by the time we meet next week.

I’ve started a new page for us to all work on, so please visit Public Video Submission Standards page, and think about the following things:

  • What is there that needs to be changed?
  • Anything missing that needs to be added?
  • What should we be telling people we will (and will not) accept for submission?

Leave your thoughts in the comments on that page or in this post
