We wanted to write a quick blog update to help keep everyone informed of what we’re doing and why. This blog is our one-stop update for some of the changes we’ve made this week.
Every week Mary forgets at least one submission, and there are a handful of contributors that have trouble with the form. We’re trying to fix that. Not only did the design of the form get updated to make it more clear, but the administration part of the form got an overhaul. There is now a 99.99% chance that if you upload your picture correctly, it will be included in the contributions. The new form has been tested on computers, phones, and tablets.
We can’t wait to see what everyone submits this week!
Guest Video Quality Upgrade
Mr. Producer hates fuzzy videos with bad sound, so he has implemented a new system that should greatly improve our guest crafters video & sound quality. We had been using Skype as a method to connect, which was easy to use but lacked control. Our new system is a bit more complicated but allows us to control the quality. We would like to thank our guest crafters for working with us to try and produce the best show possible!
As most of you probably know, we now have a Patreon page. If you don’t know what Patreon is, it’s a way for people to support our shows and get all sorts of bonus content in exchange.
For instance, if you find yourself having trouble using our Contribution Submission Form, we now offer technical support to our Patreon supporters. We will walk you through the process, crop your images, flip your images, or basically help you with what ever you need. If you are having trouble with the form, just send us a message through our Patreon Page to get help.
We added new perks to every level, here are some examples:
- 24-hour Late Submission Window for CR
- EXTRA Craft Roulette project samples and ideas
- Weekly Veto Voting (Colors, Element, Random)
- FUNN University project galleries and dimensions
- Behind the scenes videos of how we setup for each Craft Roulette episode including extra time with our guests
- and many more!
We spend a lot of time and money every week producing the show, and our supporters help keep it going and AD FREE! Please consider signing up as a Patreon Supporter.
And a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has already signed up!
We are ending our Contributor Showcase show. We were not happy with the show quality and have decided to end it. We think the discussion that happens on our Craft Roulette Show Facebook Group is better and more rewarding. It was also a very taxing show to host and produce. Being live for 2+ hours in one sitting is hard work and a huge commitment. We are playing with ideas that might fill the void, but as of right now Contributor Showcase is no longer a show. Thank you for your understanding.
If you have any questions about these updates, please feel free to get in contact. Thank you so much for all of your support!
