Contongues Youtube Channel

Copied from CWS:
Advark wrote:So I've been watching a lot of the wikitongues youtube channel, I've started thinking to myself that it would be really cool if there something like this for conlangs, where people could sit in front of a camera and speak a few paragraphs in their conlang, I have the youtube channel setup. All I need now is for people who wish to help me to give me the word in their conlang that can be translated to Contongues (pm the word or tell me in the comments if you wish to give a word) i'm going to use these to make a banner for the youtube channel. If you would like to have a video of you speaking your conlang send me a pm here on CWS and you just need to tell me your name (if you don't want to give your name give me an alias), name of your conlang, a text translation of what you will be saying in English, give me what you're saying typed out in your language, and then give me an mp4, mov, avi, or flv of you speaking your conlang, I need to have a video of you speaking your conlang, if you really are worried privacy you wear a mask or dim the lighting so your face is not visible but I prefer if I could videos of people speaking their conlang. I need to be able download the video so I can upload it to youtube on the channel, video titles will be always be in this format
CONTONGUES: <one's name> speaking <one's conlang >

Note I can upload more than one conlang, but will need to be in separate videos
Note2 If audio or video is difficult to hear or see I may ask for it to be rerecorded

I would like it if anyone could give me some advice on ways to make this idea better, I really hope I can make a good documentation of all the conlangs people have made.

Elsewhere in the Interwebworks, it has been announced that The CWBB has been reactivated. Note the new domain name. All the old data and conversations appear intact.

I feel like this would be better serviced with a few posts on the Quintessential Conversation thread, not a separate thread on its own.

I did consider that, and I think the Q5th would have been the natural alternative. (And I guess if the MOD Squad decides to subsume it there, well, there it shall be!) But I chose to make a new thread because by tomorrow afternoon, or Tuesday at the latest, any announcements made there would simply disappear underneath the heap of curious and entertaining ephemera that is the Q5th. Also, a separate thread alerts people to the existence of something potentially of interest --- an announcement, rather than a running convo in a thread that, perhaps, not everyone reads regularly. At least this thread would be a place where folks know that it's an announcement of some kind and also they will be unlikely to miss it due to the rapidly changing nature of the other thread.
