    Welcome to the Podcast Forum!

    This forum is for discussion of everything podcast related. Be it the podcasts you like or loathe, the podcasts you make or how to start your own podcast (gear, hosting, etc), it goes here.

    Posts about radio shows go in the Radio Forum itself.

    Promoting Your Podcasts

    Unlike other forums on boards, it is OK to promote your podcast here. However, promoting your podcasts here is only for boardsies who post regularly. This is to stop users signing up to boards specifically to advertise their podcast, which is called spamming. Spamming is a site-bannable offense. If in doubt, PM a moderator first. Your podcast moderators are wnolan1992 and jaykhunter

    So, if you are a regular boardsie:
    • Feel free to start a thread specifically for your podcast.
    • Feel free to mention your podcast in relevant threads.
    • Don't mention your podcasts where it is not relevant. That is considered spamming.
    • If you mention your own podcast, make sure you clearly state that it is your podcast. Recommending your podcast under false pretenses is shilling.
    • Don't register other accounts to talk up your podcast. This is called sock-puppeting and you will be site-banned.
    • Moderators will help you with whatever they can, including advice on getting your podcast started (but not your maths homework!)
    • Everyone loves podcasts here. Tell us about your favourites!
    General Rules / Guidelines
    • All site-wide rules also apply here.
    • Read, remember and agree to the Terms of Use and Posting Guidelines before posting.
    • If you think someone is breaking the rules/trolling, do not respond to it - report the post.
    • Moderators decide what is considered spamming/shilling/trolling. Moderators consider & deal with every reported post appropriately.
    • If you post a video, podcast or image, give your opinion on it as well.
    • Don't bump old threads. If the last post was over a year ago, make a new thread.
    • If you want to talk about Boardscasts, make a new thread
    • Don't quote large reams of text or videos. It makes reading a thread less pleasant for others.

    If you have an issue with a moderator's decision, here's what to do:
    • Don't argue with moderator decisions in-thread.
    • PM the moderator in question, or all of the forum moderators. Make your point civilly.
    • Having discussed things with the moderator(s), if you're still unhappy, start a thread in the Dispute Resolution Forum.

    Thank you for reading and we hope you enjoy your time here.
