Looking at the threads where the likes of Porky take the effort to break down a specific play/package - I am of the opinion that something like this would translate well into youtube medium via voice and pictures.

Voicechat roundtable type discussions regarding everything Packers (or other stuff) with a couple pictures if necessary, I don't know, I think something like this would worka treat. These things can end up a trainwreck but with the calibre of members this website has, I am confident it would be interesting and fun.

Ironman has a well designed youtube page - have a look at it yall if you haven't already seen it.


I've actually toyed with the idea of doing those breakdowsn with pictures, videos and talking, rather than just writing, but my voice, accent and translation-on-the-go skills make it more of a hassle than it's worth.

I asume podcasts won't be much better.

We actually had a member who made podcasts when I just joined. Don't know who it was, though.

I think you would be excellent at it, regardless of your accent - infact it further serves to highlight the variety we get here, add that to your age (Which in relation to what you write, I find pretty remarkable) and you have a good example of what makes PH awesome.

You don't have to translate on the fly, Detlev. Simply write out your script ahead of time.

Which means that I've already written an article by then.

Only if you're planning on chattering through every second of the video, which probably isn't necessary.

I've recommended PH to three people. To my knowledge none have joined yet (unless they are lurking).

Part of my problem in not recommending the place is that I don't really hang out anywhere else in Packer fandom anymore. Since Foster lured me away, I've found myself visiting that place less and less often. Not because of anything against them, but I would just rather come here, and I don't have time to be a regular at more than one place at a time.

And part, if truth be told, because even though I'm a relative newbie, I'd like to see the place stay relatively small. To me, PH reflects what a "small town" or "neighborhood" can offer that cities and megalopolises can't match, but without most of the negatives that small towns tend to have. People here are friendly, but not insular. They are smart and diverse, rather than cliquish and tradition-bound. They listen, not just pontificate. They tolerate even weirdos (see the various Viking/Bear fans) and boring academic types (see yours truly).

One of the things I like about this place is how it welcomes strangers. (Thanks, again, Foster, for asking Kevin to take a chance on me; thanks, again, Kevin, for taking that chance and letting me join; and, again, thanks to everyone for putting up with me!) I don't want this to be a clique of "our club, not anyone else's.

But I'd rather it build the way a neighborhood bar builds its clientele. One recommendation and one customer at a time.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

I still chuckle when I reflect on the fact that I -- and Rockmolder, for that matter -- joined this site through a process that would later become against the rules here. ;)

+1 ... My thoughts exactly.. although I have no problem with remote folks joining and contributing positively to the experience here.. even if it is only a comment every now and then.. but contributing none the less.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Just curious...what was said process?

(or do I have to call Jay Glazer and other bastions of the new journalism?)

As an aside:

I have to admit that sometimes I fear some of the stuff I say here "getting out" to the larger world and "getting back" to the place where I work. Not that it stops me all that much, but a lot of what I post here (not to mention read here) would "make uncomfortable" the PC police where I work.

:xcensoredx:

It's another reason I like this place.

It's not really against the rules per se, but against my wishes. I prefer year round members, not seasonal members.

This site not only survived during that experience, it actually thrived... because of that "team" of differing views, but with a strong sense of fairness being universal...

This is NOT what I am most proud of, as regarding Packershome.com

What I AM proud of.... is taking a little time and trouble to explain to a fellow member from another packer forum "how we roll" at packerhome.com

...and he tried it. ....and he LOVED it....and now, you love him...I absolutely do, on a selfish level...

I intend to do the exact same thing this year, with a different fella...

It would be excellent if I was not alone.

Go get one. It isn't that hard.

Really... this site is free, except for our personal investments in it.

Go get one friend. I'm not talkin' "GAY PRIDE WEEK" OR NOTHIN'... LOL

Just make ONE committment (for once) to (SOMETHING) -- It really beats the hell out of constantly "just bitching".

I know this is futile, to a degree, but you are a fock-off, imo if you do not try.

I also admit I am opinionted, you lazy bastard.


We survive because of members like yourself.
