4th Age Podcast to return soon


Jason Denzel

As many of you noticed, when we switched over to the new Dragonmount website, the links to the 4th Age podcast disappeared. Don't worry though. The podcast is not gone. It will be back very soon.

 

As a matter of fact, Virginia and her podcast team have some exciting things ahead for you. Tomorrow, for instance, they'll be recording a show with Maria and Alan from Team Jordan. Once that show is edited and uploaded, you can find links to it right here or via iTunes.

 

Sorry for the temporary inconvenience. Thanks for listening.

hey cindy yeah i agree with her i hope all our conversations come back i seriously just found something i'd forgot that puts to rest the issue of people being bound to the wheel and world of dreams in fact basicly it put to rest all issues about whom is in the world of dreams. but i'll hold it in for a less public post.

No, your conversations will not be coming back. We're working on getting the old site up in read only format so you can reference them for a couple weeks.

@john12 - yeah, i prefer a less public forum myself. the podcast forums were much more comfortable for me. i'm clearly socially inept, but i felt less ashamed of it at the podcast boards. (and i look forward to your post :))

 

i'm, obviously, bummed about the way the changeover was done. there's not been much acknowledgment about everything that was lost (thank you, jenniferl, for answering the question), or the value that those lost things might have had to some of us.

 

i do notice that these boards get a lot fewer comments than the old ones did. and i'm guessing less traffic. maybe i'm not the only one who's frustrated by the whole deal, and feeling disenfranchised?

 

and yeah, i get that this is a fan site, and people are working on this for free, which is incredibly nice of them. but this is also a marketing site, and the publisher etc. profit from the sales made here, and appear to be quite actively involved here. perhaps they could have chipped in a few bucks to make for a smoother transition? perhaps they still could?

 

sorry, again, for whining. but marketers know that for every person complaining openly, there are a hundred stewing silently. and that should be a concern.

Fewer responses to the articles is due entirely to the fact that we now require registration to respond here. It'll cut down on spam. The actual forums, which have always required registration, are going pretty strong. Your login for the comments will work across the site now, so feel free to check things out.

 

I know change can be a little uncomfortable at first, but most of the feedback we've gotten for the redesign is very positive.

thanks again for your time and your response, jenniferl. i apologize, but i fear both are wasted on me. please feel free to ignore me as the argumentative twit i am.

 

of course the drop in responses is due to the registration requirements. i very much did not want to register myself, but i really wanted to get the podcasts, so i registererd. and found the board i loved decimated. balefired. *poof*

 

i Never wanted to Socially Network. i don't want a profile. i don't want to chat in any forums except the podcast board, and maybe the news now and then. i've been here for years and years and i've seen the other forums. they are not my thing. and now they are blindingly animated. studio 54 was less flashy.

 

the spam was a little annoying, but in a lovely font with an easy-on-the-eyes color scheme, it was easy to ignore. now i get insultingly personal google ads. do you remember when people used to think there was a right to privacy? *shudder*

 

i'm sure most of the people who've given feedback have been positive. unsolicited positive feedback is a poor indicator of marketing success. most people don't say anything unless they have something nice to say. they look, they don't like, they move on.

 

but if nobody is critical, nothing ever gets better. (that's for life in general, i know nothing's going to change here.)

 

carry on. your work is appreciated, even by me. i'll try to wait for podcasts.

They made it sound like they had a few eps completed and they were waiting for the new site go up before they post....

Hello everyone-

 

Just so you know, the interview with Maria and Alan was very nice. We do have some new episodes ready to go as soon as we can get them up, and are working on some really neat stuff. Just hang in there.

Hey guys-

 

I wanted to let you know that's it's really hard to find the new episodes right now. As Kajimaa pointed out here there's a link in the forums to episode 79, but you may want to have someone post/add the link to the above "4th Age will return soon" article! I'd also suggest that you add the link to your facebook page. Facebook is where I first learned of the new episode, but there's no link to the downloadable episode on Facebook.

 

I'll try to send this note to your podcast email address as well, I just have to remember what that is!!

 

Thanks so much for all the hard work- I LOVE the podcasts and have been looking forward to this one with team Jordan!! Can't wait till you guys get the bugs fixed with the new Dragonmount.

i'd suggest. . . beg. . . that you put the podcasts on the old podcast page *http://www.dragonmount.com/forums/blog/3-4th-age-podcast/), with a write-up, and comments, and only one lead post per forum, instead of in the forums, which are all mixed up, have way more topics than podcasts, and are very hard to follow.

 

also - please, when you get this thing running the way you like, will you put back up the old podcasts, or at least burn a CD and sell it? i would pay more for the podcasts than i did for the TGS audibook. . .

 

episode 79 was excellent. i loved getting my fireside chat back (and the pronunciations, seriously, been waiting most of my adult life for that, thank you thank you thank you), but it makes me really miss the old episodes even more.

 

thanks for creating this delightfully addictive "show." but now i'm addicted, and i need a bigger fix. um. now-ish, please. :)

The reason it isn't working in iTunes at the moment is because of the podcast xml file (the thing that tells iTunes where the actual podcast files are hosted), is part of the old DM site, but not the new one (yet). I can't say we (because I wasn't asked to help work on it), but the DM staff is working on trying to get that back up and running as soon as possible, so we can post up the new episodes that we have recorded.

 

Among those new episodes, we have:

- A brief WOT You Should Know, with a brief overview of the Towers of Midnight tour

- The interview with Team Jordan (Alan and Maria)

- Another interview with Matt from Theoryland, regarding tel'aran'rhiod (just recorded tonight, actually).

 

 

If you're looking to listen to those first two podcasts, they ARE posted on our Talkshoe page, so you can listen to them via the following Links:

- WOT You Should Know: http://tinyurl.com/284wp3n

- Interview with Team Jordan: http://bit.ly/9EZmqm

 

Hopefully that helps, folks.

maybe 4th age should be its own website. are the podcasts copyrighted, or can you just make your own page, and charge for the subscription? they don't seem to be a priority, or maybe just not a possibility, here. :sad:
