So just a general question, the viewership with the klikcasts have been declining per episode, so I am wondering if there is still a need for such a video show or if there is a particular reason people stopped watching? Anything we can do to change it or did it just had its time? Since it is very time consuming and hard sometimes to make each Episode special I just want to make sure if it is still worth to do or should we let this Bird fly away.

I always said I would make these as long as people are interested and I am still Amazed 20 Episodes were created but maybe it is just time to let it go?

Let me know your honest opinion and we shall go from there

I think you need to do more interviews and exclusive items. Correct me if Im wrong, but you don't seem to have picked up the phone and spoken to anyone recently? I say you should phone Marko ololol.

Thanks Adam for the comments! Actually the last 2 episodes did feature interviews with developers (not including Episode 20). And I agree phoning Marko would be awesome

I would be very sad to see the klikcast go. As Adam alluded to, I think the content that comes shrink-wrapped and ready for the show is just a bit thin.

It would be cool if we could get everyone involved in some way, but as you said, it's a lot of work.

I personally love Klikcast and am just about to get round to watching the latest episode (i usually watch everything later than everyone else, t.v. included, unless it's Formula 1!). I'll comment on improvement ideas after i watch it

EDIT: Just watched it; my thoughts on future episodes:

1. Invite more content from TDC users, noting especially the video format you want us to e-mail them to you in so you can edit them.

2. The competition feature at the end was a great idea. Next time, spend more time on this section or maybe even dedicate a whole episode to the entries after they've all been entered and use it to announce the winner(s)? Always going to be a ratings-winner there, i feel.

3. Maybe go one further by using Klikcast to start new compos?

4. At the mo, Klikcast seems to feature alot of content we've already seen. Whilst it's always desirable to see video of games on TDC, rather than relying on the pictures and descriptions in the Downloads/Projects pages, it would have more impact if it was of stuff not already front-paged, etc. I'm not sure how you could manage that, though it'd be a start to just pm the author of games that would normally get front-paged to let them know why it hasn't been yet, then reveal it in the Klikcast?

5. Ask the other admins to help - it appears to me that you do the majority of the work. Maybe certain admins have their own Klikcast sections, complete with "Videator" kayfabe-ness (look up "GamesWorld" for Videator and kayfabe meanings on Wiki)

Hope this helps, keep up the great work

Honestly, I don't watch it. I like reading stuff. Video/audio just doesn't appeal to me.

Id like to see the podcasts return. It was great fun to be a part of those; though I would have liked some more in depth discussion (Generating content, gaining exposure, etc. etc.)

Maybe in 2008 people were not posting their videos as much as they do now and there was more of a want for a video type of show but maybe that has passed.

Shab brings up a good point with the podcast. We could try that for a while with maybe a set cast of 3 folks and maybe a rotating clicker guest every week to keep things fresh?

If that would be the case I could make 1 final video klikcast as a proper goodbye to a very good 3 year run.

Ideas comments? You think a bi-weekly podcast would be a good idea to try out again?

Doesn't sound like a bad idea at all, though i will really miss the videos. How about making one-off Klikcasts for special occasions or something (compo-related or to re-cap entries/announce compo-winners, for example?)

My initial reaction to canceling the video podcast in favor of the audio one: :S

Don't mean to be contrary, but I thought it was a little boring.

I would totally watch it more often if it where shorter, one short bit per video. Perhaps a single video review/interview
