I'll have Jason Hardy, MeWe's Product Director talking with me on my youtube channel tonight at 6PM Central time. In last night's panel-discussion show I assembled a set of questions and comments from the live chat, but if there is a topic you would like me to address with Jason on tonight's show, feel free to post it. The live chat will also be enabled during the show tonight. This is our chance to give MeWe an organized presentation of what the G+ gaming community wants and needs from MeWe if they are going to become the go-to location for tabletop gaming communities.

I am going to be doing a youtube show on this topic tonight at 5 central, with a rolling set of panelists when they are available. I would like to add some panelists, so if you are interested please contact me at mythmere AT yahho dot com. The three topics that we'll roll through are: (1) needed and desired characteristics for a platform, (2) The various alternatives for a platform, benefits and disadvantages, (3) Risk and Opportunities - i.e., drawing together the other two topics in a more global sense. Again, please let me know if you'd be available if you have thoughts on the G+ exodus.

E.T., would you be interested in being on that panel? YouTube is great for getting discussions in one place and publicizing them, but for ongoing discussion this group is the place we'd probably want to point people towards.
With G+ finishing its run, I would like to get a video (youtube) panel of people together to discuss the next step for maintaining the OSR's DIY community. If you've got a plan, I'd like to put representatives of the various plans together on a video to discuss it all. If you're interested, please post and I will try to organize this.

E.T. Smith already shared my FB post here about doing a youtube panel on this topic, but I'd love any suggfestions. Also volunteers for the panel, although I'm going to have to keep the number relatively small due to microphone-chaos that can happen with too many people.
The easiest way to contact me is via facebook. I'm not very active on G+ - my role on this panel is mainly to publicize the discussion, moderate it, pick the participants, and then let the panel talk. I don't have a dog in this hunt other than continuing to foster the OSR, so I'm not pushing for any particular solution, just the discussion of options.

For both of the two Jordoba campaigns, OD&D and 5e, we'll be broadcasting them on Twitch as well as on youtube. The reason for this is that the link for twitch is always the same (https://www.twitch.tv/unclemattdnd), and you can tune in at 6PM central, Monday and Tuesday, and just be there without needing a specific link.

Quick update on shows and patreons.
1) I have canceled the Old School Gamer Radio patreon to consolidate it with the Uncle Matt's D&D Studio patreon. So if you are contributing to the OSGR patreon, PLEASE switch the pledge to patreon.com/unclematt instead of OSGR.
2) I have also canceled the separate game patreon for the Heroes of Jordoba, so any pledges for games should go to the (already existing) patreon.com/Jordoba patreon account.
3) So now there are only two patreons. The reason for having two is that in the /Jordoba patreon, pledges are shared with the players. In the /unclematt patreon it is shared only with Zach and Jim Wampler, but this is where the bulk of the expenses are incurred. There is a high-level pledge for the channel's patreon that covers both, but if you want to donate a non-Cadillac amount, please consider a small contribution to each of the two patreons.

Part 2 of what I think will be a 3-part series of blog posts.
