So far over 500 are attending the live show on Saturday, Aug. 7, 2010 at 9:30PM -5 GMT. The show will be 30 minutes long and about the video reviews of the week, poll videos, Q&A and other computer and gaming topics. Hope to see you there: http://www.rodneyreynolds.com/live and here's the direct Ustream link: http://www.ustream.tv/rodneyreynolds as well as registration: http://www.ustream.tv/login-signup

Depending on the success and attendance of this event, future live shows will follow. So be sure to attend and show your support if you would like for this to be a continuing series. Although, if you can't attend this event it will be recorded and posted on Ustream immediately following the live show and shortly thereafter on YouTube.

I think Sunday morning, nearly everyone is free on a sunday and you can reflect on the entire past week.

(also this is vartain from the forums)

i think you should use the record function you were talking about in the "hello and welcome video" i think it would be better for those who are in different time zones where the show will be like 4 in the morning, that way they dont have to stay up just to see it, instead they can watch the recorded video when they have the time

Guys, he can't take care for comments like: "Do it in the afternoon, that would be best for me" or "pls at 8pm GMT+3"

Do a vote, and if your vote is not in the "popular" time, then there is nothing to do besides for you to stay late up or wake up earlier.

Rodney, its a great idea to do something live. Do the show when it suits the majority of the people. Im living in Denmark, and it will be about 4:30 in the morning, but im not whining. Im just gonna go to bed a little ealier and wake up at 4:15 and make some coffee :) And hey, its weekend for god sakes :)

- During the week, a lot of people are working
- Since there's a few or maybe a load of people from Europe including myself who's 5 hours ahead of EST and 8 hours ahead of PST

I suggest a day such as Saturday and maybe afternoon. You may get more viewers with that time slot than others.

Seeing as you are five or more hours behind us here in Ireland and the UK, I, and many of your viewers would be asleep if you did your show in the evening.

Thursday or Friday, or any other workday evening.

thursday before I run out and buy a product for the weekend and then see new tech.
excellent choices in products you choose to display and test. when I finally got to the 3dgameman website I was overwhelmed with knowlage of computer equipment and the website is so vast that I really like to just look around. I would have not found this website if 3dgameman didnt say he had a 3dgameman website on a other video service provider on the internet.

Saturday late morning or early afternoons would probably be the best bet. 1-2pm Central Standard Time. I'm assuming most of your viewers would be from North America, and going with a Central Time Zone 1-2pm would be perfect, and not just for me.

That way, it's on a weekend, when most people have off from work.

It's not too early in the day for people who like to sleep in.

And it's not too late so it shouldn't interfere with people's plans to go out.

Also Rodney, have you thought about podcasting for those who won't be able to view your live shows?

if its on a weekday, don't start till after 3:30 est. or so, highschool starts tomorrow and they don't let out till 2:30 est. thanks for consideration.

Anonymous

you cannot please everyone due to time zones -/ i say the weekends because then it doesnt really matter for a majority of people its the weekend and therefor staying up till 2 am for a show i no big deal or what not.

Anonymous

3dgameman, please read this!!!>> saturday evening is the best because:
-Its the beginning of weekend and people dont work (at least not in te evening)
-Its a good moment to start with youre weekend watching youre show.
-You can review things that came out that week (because you review it end of the week
...ect...ect
3d saturday!!!

Hey Rodney. Just a thought.
Since you can't make everyone happy with the time zone issue, have you considered doing 2 shows. Maybe one mid-morning, and another one late evening. Otherwise, I suggest you do it when you can generate the largest audience, but you already know that.

I love the idea of a live show but please consider the difference between time zones in USA & Canada and over the ocean, like Europe...

I think for the majority of viewers it would be best to have it during the weekend in the evening when most people are off from school/work and can get some time to settle down.

Anonymous

Saturday+Evening, I'm going to school soon and that would be ideal for my free time. Once I get another job I'll be working the weekdays so again this would fit my schedule. If you ran it during a day of the week I would never see any of your live shows, just food for thought.

I'm trying to register on the UStream website but it's slow right now, I'll have to return later.

I probably won't be able to watch until later this month because I'm a residential advisor at my university, and I'm going to be training until the 21st. Once the school year starts I'll definitely be able to follow it though. Best times for me would really be any day after 1pm Central Time once my classes start.

You Europe people can complain about time zones all you want, but Rods biggest audience, is the USA, and Canada, and we want to make it easy on Rod doing this, so if it's gonna be live, lets make it Saturday in the evening time USA/Canada around 7pm Eastern Time, which is after dinner for most here, and before prime time TV, or people going out, who live in bigger places here. Also the end of the week, would give Rod more time to work on the show, and he would have more to talk about during the show. Also I don't usually work weekend evenings with my 2nd job, and my 1st is closed on weekends. Like I said lets keep this easy on Rod, cause he does have a life, and again, if you live in Europe, and have to catch it on some whack time, O well, there are plenty of shows from Europe I watch, and listen too on the net, and I don't complain about the time difference, I just catch them when i can, and watch the recorded shows later on, when they do offer them, and I have time to watch/listen too them.

I'd love to watch a live show where you have some questions that your will answer already prepared, and as you are answering questions you and a helper will be building a computer or doing a modification of some sort. Maybe your spouse or employee from your business would be great!
Best of luck

Any day but Thursday is fine, and evening would be best. 6 or 7pm EST start time is ideal.

afternoon i suppose, because my time zone is 6 hours ahead of yours so if you were to broadcast at like 2 or 4pm it would be about 8 or 10pm here.

Anonymous

[JamieA242] how can you ask for "morning, afternoon or evening" because evening in the UK is morning in the US. i still voted for evening though but that means you shud film it in morning so i can watch in evening if that makes sense :D
