Puddle Jumper: across the universe

Getting the ball rolling!

Yes, wow, finally!

New videos have been posted on Kawoosh! and there are many, many more to come. At least I've made a start. (I've been busy, you see...)

Surprisingly, a lot of the backlog were new editors posting links to youTube. youTube is still a no-no on Kawoosh! and is unlikely to turn into a yes-yes anytime soon.

I am thinking of revising the rules in terms of streaming. In this day and age, I'm starting to wonder if streaming (without the option of downloading the actual vid) is all right. Many editors choose to upload their videos to stream and watch on their website to prevent rippers downloading their vids and stealing stuff.

It's at the back of my mind at the moment, but any thoughts/comments are appreciated!

Kawoosh! Redux

Hello my dearest Kawooshers,

Excuses and long-stories aside, here's the plan:

As of December 1st, I will be working on Kawoosh!, ironing out problems and tweak it so it can accommodate for any more Stargate movie-centric videos as well as Stargate Universe vids.

I'll also start checking my e-mails again, so anything sent to me prior to December 1st may or may not be read.

I hope to have some sort of new version launched by the beginning of next year and will make a lot of effort to stay in the loop and keep Kawoosh! alive.

Lots of puddles and jumps,
(",) Gater

Triangle Vids Challenge on over at Kawoosh!

Stargate fans - we've all seen the shippy vids. Those two people that 'go' so well together. But what happens when you throw a third wheel into the mix?

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the Triangle Vids Challenge. This challenge is to make any type of vid that involves relationships between three people. Think along the lines of two separate and competing ships ie. Weir/Sheppard/Teyla. They can be any kind of triangle that you want - you don't have to limit yourself to the angsty, romantic type.

As usual, you may use footage from Stargate SG-1 or Atlantis.

Information about submitting your entry can be found here.

Deadline for this challenge is August 2, 2009 at midnight GMT.

We hope you'll come join in the fun!

It's just like "Fallen"...

Hi y'all!

*waves sheepishly*

I've been out of the Kawoosh! loop for maybe a year now (possibly more), bear with me while I settle back into my supreme commander role and see if I still have the knack for this malarky!

I'm excited to be involved again but also scared because I'm assuming things have changed and I just don't know what goes on around here anymore. Yesterday I found myself forgetting the admin passwords to access the Kawoosh! back-end, which reduced me to a jelly of hysterical laughter.

So don't mind me while a fumble around, I'm sure there are loads of Kawooshers I don't know, hello to you all, and of course, hello to all the old-timers too... if you guys are still around!

I will no longer be involved in maintaining Kawoosh!, the Kawoosh! forum or the_kawoosher.

I've made some lovely friends in the Stargate/Atlantis fandom and I'd like to thank all of you for your help and support over all the years that I have been involved in maintaining these sites/communities.

All video submissions and contact queries will now be handed over/forwarded to _gater_ and will automatically go to her and if you have any other questions regarding Kawoosh! and/or your videos, please contact her: (gater@kawoosh.co.uk)

I wish you all the very best with your future vidmaking and look forward to seeing more wonderful videos from all of you.

Thank you.

Please also remember to check out the challenge rules/guidelines and good luck to all who enter.
