Hey, guys! This is the "official" discussion thread for the BBDB staff members. Most discussion will happen in chat, but this is here for announcements of staff meetings and to establish Chat-based staff meetings as a regular, weekly thing.
Currently, I have planned to hold staff meetings every Sunday at 3pm EST. If this is unsuitable, please tell me here.
All BBDB staff members, please reply to this thread so it appears in your Notifications. Again, this is probably not be used more than like once a month or so, but I would like to have the knowledge that you'll see updates if I post them.
If you are not a BBDB staff member, please don't reply to this thread. It's not pertinent to you, so don't worry about it. Obviously, I can't stop you from reading or replying, but y'know... just please don't.
Thanks guys, I hope to see you both on Sunday if not before!
I meant to tell you earlier, Bry. But I can't make it on Sunday, most likely. I'm meeting some family members all day. However I am usually very free on Sundays. If you can make Monday I can meet almost any time that day. Just not lunchtime, :D
Looks like we missed each other on Monday... It's totally fine, I didn't have anything major to discuss, but I would still like to have that meeting with you. I'm not free at all tomorrow, but I'm good today and Friday after 3 EST.
Okay, so I created an email specifically for this wiki (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I think it would be good if all BBDB staff members did it too, so we can communicate sensitive (spoilery) materials without anyone seeing it. It will also allow me to share Google Docs with writers so we could potentially write them together or something, idk.
Yeah, that's right, though I still feel like no one but you should see it, so if you do appear in chat, I can pc you the email, even if you are probably not active on the chat but still online, which means you may have to quickly check the pc before you go offline from it
Hey, so episodes are normally like 6 pages long in Microsoft Word, but this is a mid-season finale type thing, so it's okay if they're long. Mine's already three and a half pages long and I haven't gotten even near where I am supposed to end.
EDIT: Actually, yours is the return from mid-season hiatus, but the same principle applies.
Pretty much any scenes that feel unnecessary probably are. Cut whatever you feel is unnecessary; this is your episode, so make it yours.
Also, I will go back behind you and change any inconsistencies with my episode or future episodes, and grammar stuff. I doubt you'll have grammar mistakes, but I just want to be sure that this series is finely polished.
Okay. So, I am leaving for a week long trip next week. From July 2nd to July 10th or 11th. I was wondering if there was anything I need to real quick that I can cram into the rest of my time with internet connection.
