Default Idea: Would you be interested in mapping livestreams?

So, I just got some free time for about month, and when I became an Admin, I decided we should try to elevate the Modding Community of Serious Sam to new levels.

One of my ideas was to somehow resurrect the old "workshop" (or whatsitsname) from the old times, when veteran mappers answered questions from newbies who wanted to learn creating maps in SED1.
These sessions were usually held on an IRC channel, and Croteam people usually dropped in as well.

My idea is to somewhat resurrect this old tradition would be a series of livestreams, where I would be working on a new map for my project, SSHD Extended from the very scratch, kinda documenting the process, showing people how I work, and even answering questions and teaching how some stuff is done. People could even suggest ideas for the map I'll be working on.

Who's interested?

Sounds kinda boring to me personally.

All the streams done by you on your maps kinda eliminates the possibility of interactivity imo. Having the old workshop back would be cool if there was enough interest in one to begin with.

Hmm, it could eliminate interactivity how? There's a chat where you can ask questions.

Also, it could be made into a thing, that other mappers/modders could also stream on the same channel. After all, I'm not good in rigging/converting models as you guys.

Pan: Well sure, but from what I found, the best way to teach people to use SED would be doing it live, otherwise there would be always problems with the interpretation of tutorials.

Personally, I tnink we need mapping competitions, like those for TF2maps.net, like Iron Mapper or the Artpass Contest.

Something like that is also planned, but not right now.

(Though I want it to be a year long event, so I should be setting that one up too soon enough.)

This one, however, is for education, since there's no proper documentation for SED3/3.5, just a handful of tutorials here and there.
