I'm trying something new.  I've set the next video as a premier that will go live on Dec 1st.



Testing to see what it looks like here.

Here's the part where you help: Please pop over to youtube and press the "set reminder" button.  I want to see what that looks like on the back end if we can get quite a few people pressing that button.  

And if you REALLY want to help me out, press the subscribe button while you are there.  Once I get to 1000 subscribers, a whole new world opens up for my youtube adventure and I can make even better videos for you all to enjoy.

Every click helps.  The more data I can gather the better I can understand how youtube works.

The remind feature only works if you're a signed in member. I guess I'll just have to use my brain to remind me - or my post-it notes!

I set the reminder, already a subscriber. I did it on my android phone, and had to switch to desktop view to find it. This may be due to user error.  On many sites, I have  had to switch to desktop to find simple things.

awesome!  
The data takes a while to show behind the scenes.  Some features aren't available to me until I make 1K subscribers, but I should be able to see something soon or I might have to wait till it goes live.

But if you haven't clicked already, please click.  It's a huge help!  

I'm excited to learn about these features.

I clicked set reminder and subscribed! I'm on an Android phone and used the YouTube app, and the Set Reminder button was right where you indicated. Interestingly, it's also telling me that only 2 people are waiting for it.

I saw the 'box' at the right side of my laptop screen, the same that's always there for live videos. Already someone had a comment there ( a bird). So I wrote something too. But that was after you were there Nikki.

Yes, that's what I saw.  I set the reminder & subscribed.  I had no idea there were reminders, so that was a cool thing to learn.

I am so EXCITED by how many people are helping out with this.

THANK YOU!  

I hope some of you might be able to make it to the live premiere with me.  I've never done this before and am curious what the chat will be like.  

I'm learning lots about how youtube works.  This test is a huge success.  

An extra huge thank you to all who subscribed!  

Right now it says "5 waiting".  I am pretty sure there should be more than that.  I wonder if it only shows the people who are visiting that page at that moment?

Hmmm... the chat seems to vanish over time.  I missed the birds.  That's disappointing.  I had expected it to stay up until it goes live.  I'm pretty sure I can see the chat history after it goes live.

It looks like the number of people waiting is how many people have that page loaded at that time.  

Cool!

I'm guessing that "waiting" is just that -- anybody who's got the page open at any given time before the video's live.  I'd assume that the number waiting would be more valuable a few minutes before the video launches than days before.

I'm on satellite internet with high latency and limited bandwidth, so although I set the reminder and subscribed, I won't be looking at it "live".  I have to wait till I can watch during my !@#$%%^$#@ provider's "free" minutes (between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m.).

I am overwhelmed by how wonderful you are!  Permies people really are amazing.  

It premiers Tuesday morning.  For some reason, I set it for 6 am my time (pacific standard).  So I'll be up extra early to observe how it goes and maybe if some of you come to see it we can chat in the chatbox and test that out.

I'm actually quite nervous now.  It's the most work and time I've put into a video and I hope, I really really hope, I did well.  This craft is so new to me and yet I'm so eager to share the neat things using this medium that I'm well, I'm nervous.

I had a look at a time-zone converter. I think when it's early morning there with you, it will be in the afternoon here (6 AM -> 15 PM  or so)

Does youtube tell you the premiere time in your local time zone?
