First ever BassBuzz Livestream on YT! (wanna help?)

Hey family! The first ever BassBuzz livestream is happening on Youtube next Wednesday Nov 16th, 6PM Pacific Time.

Click here to get notified on YT when it’s starting, hope to see you there :blush: - I'm Your Bass Teacher. Ask Me Anything. - YouTube

Two places where I’d like your help, if you feel called:

  1. The theme for this first stream is “Ask Me Anything,” and I’d love some actual video question submissions from forum folks to play and respond to on the stream. If you’re interested, just record yourself asking your question, post it unlisted to YT and put the link in this thread (or PM me).
  2. If you’re a long time forum member and you’re interested in helping me moderate comments live on YT during the stream, let me know in this thread or PM me! I could use one or two people helping out there to make sure no spammers go off the rails while I’m trying to play bass and answer questions. :slight_smile:

See you soon!

Can you explain what this would entail?

Usually it’s someone popping in and dropping spam advertising something or someone saying something vile. In both cases you delete the comment and ban the offender.

It’s something of a badge of honor in some circles to rack up as many bans as you can in a day.

Anyway that’s my experience from watching streams almost a decade now

I’ll be in the hospital recovering from my November 14th surgery, but if I’m up for it it I’ll join in on my tablet.

Hey @eric.kiser ! Like @Wombat-metal said, it’d be very minimal ‘moderating’, just hanging out for the duration of the stream and monitoring the comments for obvious spam, bots, or other devilry.

May not even be an issue, I have no idea how many people will show up or how hungry the spam monsters will be that day, but figured having a helping hand isn’t a bad idea either way. :slight_smile:

Just noticed it’s at 3 AM my time, so I think I’ll pass :joy:

So, @JoshFossgreen, “ask me anything” is pretty wide open.

For the pre-recorded questions, are there some themes or areas you’d like us to focus on, to like… keep the discussion herded in specific directions?

And is there a format you’d like us to use? Like, “Hi Josh, this is Tim, timsgeekery on the BassBuzz forums, and I was wondering…” or the like?

That sounds like an appropriately “anything” question. I think everyone can fire at will.

Hey Mike,
Same for me in Germany. Unfortunatly I have to get up at 5am (two hours later) for getting to work. So no attendance for me…

Hey Tim, thanks for the clarifying question. I think for video questions, bass-related stuff would be most useful, like if someone is looking for feedback on a technique thing, something where the visual is relevant to the question. But that’s just a suggestion!

I’d be up for moderating comments @JoshFossgreen
