The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
Join the iReport team today to talk about any questions, comments or concerns you may have today at 3 p.m. ET.
We’ve had quite a week with President Obama answering an iReporter’s question, adriana71’s behind-the-scenes look at NASA, yadray’s unique “bubble” project, and a heartwarming story about one neighborhood giving a child with leukemia an early Christmas.
We look forward to talking with all of you today. Hope to see you there!
I have some concerns that I guess I can pretty well canned. I know you guys have been busy as all get out with the news developing that at some point in the last couple weeks I have sent emails regarding a series of documentaries I like to do, but was wondering if there would be a conflict of interest???
Welcome @all, good to see you
high fives Millis
Hi @Millis, please contact me again with your question
Finally I'm able to make one of these things!
good to see everyone
@hhanks, ok Henry I will, I had also asked Nicole and David the same thing but I"ll send you a new email ok???
Glad to see you could make it too @GSandeen
Sure no problem @Millis
Glad to be here! Thanks for the call, BTW
Good afternoon everyone
It has been quite a week -- thanks to all who contributed this week with questions for the president, and Kim Kardashian.
Does anyone know what happened to TheWarden?
@hhanks, Thanks!!! OH btw, I fixed up a separate page for Vickie Maidstone, She deserved it!!!
Hi @everyone, any questions/comments? The floor is open officially.
Hello Hello from Sunny Coronado :)
KC I received an email from him and he is extremely busy right now. I think he is doing well.
I can understand asking the president a question but Kim Kardashian...why? How did that come about?
Hello @Ryn, Chris, Joyful!
@hhanks...I like the team blog with the pictures, it's great to see the faces of who we talk to. Great job!
Howdy, Henry. :o)
Yo, I guess.
I got a question. I notice that the commenting system on CNN articles seems to be a random mix of "login only" posts (using our ireport account) and anonymous, "anything goes" posts that need to be pre-approved by a moderator. Wouldn't it be easier if everything was simply login-based so we could see our posts immediately?
hey there fellaz
@Ryn...great thanks for the info.
Greetings, all - Kyle from the iReport tech team here, listening in.
Nice interviews with "New Moon" people @ChrisMorrow -- if any of you see the movie tonight, share your reviews on video as soon as you can --- and we'd love to see the long lines and excited crowds as well!
Hey zdan and all
I love the team blog pics!
I've asked this question before but didn't get an answer, so I'm asking again here and hopefully someone will reply: How can I get one of those iReport t-shirts? Can I buy one? Where? How?
I want one!
I still notice my videos cut off short
@kyrogers, I noted the last time I uploaded videos that my Windows Movie maker had an option to compress my videos, I guess it worked???
We will check into that for you @JoyfulGypsy
Thank you Henry. Hanging out with Movie Critics are very interesting. I should do a story on the Movie Critic. :)
Why did we ask Kim Kardashian questions?
who's Kim Kardashian anyway?
@Millis yep, if the video posted to iReport successfully, then our back-end system understood the compressed video.
Kim Kardashian is an interesting person. Breathtaking in person too.
@GSandeen - HA! I just asked the same question. :oD
@kyrogers, ok I never compressed any in the past and thought I would try it so apparently it works fine.
Hah! I've never been a huge fan of pop culture, so I actually had to look up what she's done, in the past.
Reality TV is stupid :(
@kyrogers: Viewer discretion box is disappearin after couple of visits to the post. I used Google chrome and Moz. Initial uploadin of post with viewers discretion check box works fine but after couple of visits to the post it jus disappears!
So....what's on the table today?
Hi @KillerMike are you referring to CNN articles, as opposed to iReports?
@GSandeen - ditto
@ChrisMorrow re: videos cut short - I'll make a note to check on the status of that - IIRC, it was just a little short, right? so probably best to leave a bit of padding (e.g. fade to black) at the end
Thanks for the tip kyrogers.
@JoyfulGypsy, let's see now, I got baloney, cheese, mayo, peanut butter n strawberry jam, and pepsi. LOL!!!
I did a couple of video slideshows of pictures I took in Scotland last week and I extended the endings with a black screen for a few seconds so that it wouldn't cut off prematurely. Kinda/sorta worked.
@JoyfulGypsy I wrote an amazing rap in honor of stupid reality TV shows! :D
@Millis - So you're wearing your red rubber nose today, huh? LOL
Joyful...all your photos are so great!!
@deepseahuman re: discretion advised veil not appearing - please send me a PM with a link to the story in question.
What is the word on photo club?
@JoyfulGypsy, LOL I guess so, HI there!!! LOL!!!
@Millis sounds like you have an amazing sandwich happening! :D
Oh by the way, no roundtable next week and we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Now back to our regularly scheduled roundtable.
I just got up!!! Im late its 1.35 a.m. in the morning here, ugh! what an ungoldy hour for me!!!
@GSandeen - Break it out.
I know we need entertainment news too. But I guess we need a promisin person in any business to question.I had my questions for KIM jus to show what I really felt. Both my question are basic which a SIMPLE educated person knows abt entertainment business and KIM will ask.
@GSandeen you should share that rap on the site!
Wow, now that's dedication, sunethra!
I really wish to see “ Question to real successful artist like” like JAY -Z, Beyonce or super model MOMs like KATE moss of HEDIE KLUM jus for example.
Hey Shari way over in Sri Lanka!
@GSandeen, um yeah I do, LOL!!!
@hhanks...so you gotta answer my man...how did Kim Kardashian get an ireport spot?
Aww, thank you, KCRep. Glad you liked them. :o)
Thank you hhanks
Question about the "voices" section. When will that be updated?
@Ryn - Like I've said before, we're trying to get back into the swing of things with the new site before we unleash a new, awesome photo assignment. Also, with the holidays coming up, I think we might wait a bit before we relaunch Photo Club. But, feel free to submit amazing photography because we're always keen on approving great photos!
"Hi @KillerMike are you referring to CNN articles, as opposed to iReports?"
Yeah, I am. I guess this might not be the right place to discuss this, but it sure as heck would make things more convenient.
Any update on the Photo Club?
@hhanks, gonna log off here and send you an email again ok???
Oops, I missed your reply on the Photo Club, Christina. Thank you for answering.
did I miss it??? LOL Hello All! And to Team Ireport - nice to see you - love the pic!
@Joyful - The voices section is updated once or twice a week. The on-air section of voices entirely depends on how many iReports make it on TV that week, so that's harder to put a number on.
What's the word on video slideshows versus posting 10 individual pictures? Any guidance?
Okay thanks @Millis
Hi all! Sorry to be late.
Hi Bellydancer, loved your "bubble" poem!
@Christina - Re: Voices Section - They seem to linger a lot longer. Thanks. I understand now.
Hey guys - sorry for the late join. Hello all!
As you might have seen, we have been having more opportunities for iReporters to ask questions of people whom CNN is interviewing (we did some here and there during the campaign and beyond, including the "Harry Potter" cast), and we hope to do it a lot more in the future!
And on that note, thanks for the suggestions @deepseahuman!
Welcome @alisonv and @Bellydancer
Hi everyone. I wanted to jump in and plug the blog post I just uploaded about the new mobile upload feature. Check it out after the roundtable.
New mobile feature is a must for all iReporters!
Love the idea of being able to ask questions. I see CNN using iReporters in a much bigger way now!!! Its a good thing :)
Pbethany, is it a newer program than the other CNN app?
Any update on the "Collaborative Art Project"? I'm going to be traveling a lot in the next several months and I don't want to miss out. For example, I missed out on submitting travel photos of Australia because I didn't have those pix on the laptop I was traveling with. I just want to make sure I'm prepared and have whatever pictures I need with me.
Let me know if you make it to San Diego :)
@Joyful - When it comes to stills versus slideshows, I think it just depends on the stories. In breaking news/hard-news situations, we are generally looking for still images. We use the images in stories and on the homepage. When it comes to features, there's more leeway. If you've got lots of great images, a slideshow is a great way to show volume. But, if you have several high-quality images, go with the stills. I hope that long-winded answer helped!
@ ALL...I'm off to work now, have a great day!!
@alisonv, it is an added feature more for those who don't have an iPhone. The idea is that you can upload stories from any phone to an address unique to your CNN user account. You don't have to upload to "unclaimed" and go through the process of claiming.
Hey guys! Hello from rainy, gloomy NYC- I'm painting my apartment and took a break to say hi to all. Always in awe of how many things we share on this site every day.
@hhanks, Henry I just emailed you so check your inbox and I also included my phone number as well.
@ChrisMarrow - That might be in February. I'll definitely let you know. :0)
The collaborative projects are great! I had a great time with Yadray's Bubble project and it was fascinating to see everyone's very different take on the images, their interpretations and their approach to the project. I think most put "bubble" as a tag if anyone is interested in looking. It was my first iReport collaboration and it was really fun.
@sunat55 - Hi. Glad you could make it.
Thanks PB, I'm an iphone girl. But I don't have the one with video yet.
@Alisonv, I am planning on doing some stuff like that using Adobe software, is that how you did it???
Howdy sjunat55 :)
Hi, this is my first time for this round table. How does it work? And what is everybody talking about today. I have a couple of comments
Nice to see the freedom tower pic's sunat55. Nice shots
@joyful- you got me playing Celtic music on repeat!!!
Those posts were beautiful.
Nice to see so many of you around, both i-reporters and i-report staff! Sunethra wins the prize!! 1am!
I am hoping SANTA brings me an iphone that has the application Joyful Gypsy uses to id my unknown songs! lol
Millis, I have Adobe Premiere, but I'm not yet an expert user, unfortunately! I do most iReports on iMovie, although I used Premiere on my olive oil report to balance the sound a little. There was so much noise in the background you couldn't hear the man speaking. After working on it in Adobe, it was clearer. I really MUST get a directional mike! Adobe, of course, has a lot more options. I just don't have the time and patience to learn it well at the moment.
Hi @16USA60 - the floor is open for anything and everything. Fire away!
Does eveybody just say hi? :)
Bellydancer - Shazam is a free iPhone application.
@chrismorrow Good to see you too!
@wausaufamily- thank you so much! The rising!
Hi sjunat! Sunethra...1:00? That's dedication!
@Alisonv, ok thanks, for now I am using Acrobat and Adobe 9 reader and just even beginning to learn the basics are a bit daughting, I also want to use the web design suite as well.
Before I go, does anyone have any update on the "Collaborative Art Project" Tyson had discussed a while back?
@KillerMike hey there - Henry shared your question about user comments on CNN.com. We're looking at integrating the systems across the site, but for now commenting is a bit different on blogs than it is on CNN.com stories and iReports.
Thanks Gypsy..lol I remember now..
OK...good. As you can see by my reports, that I report about the Federal Reserve and how it was passed in 1913 and basically I have been in shock ever since that this has happened to our country. Because how in the heck can we allow international bankers print OUR MONEY and we pay them interest SINCE 1913. Don't you think we need to do everything possible to listen to Ron Paul's HR 1207 bill to audit the fed. Thanks all
Hmm... I was thinking of posting "pirating college textbooks online" as an iReport for saving money during the repression, but I figured that wouldn't fly with the TOS here. :-P
16USA, just jump right in with comments or questions!
@JoyfulGypsy - tyson is taking a well-deserved day off, but he has been hard at work on collaborative art project ideas, and will update soon.
Henry - Thanks. Good to know. Sounds like it could be fun.
16usa, why don't you do a report on it?
16, sorry, I just re-read and saw that you have done.
I've never been to one of these and I'm late. What are you discussing?
Hi @redhededgrl -- Any and all topics up for discussion today!
I have many times. Just look up my reports and I am always talking about it.
Our Constitution says OUR GOVERNMENT, not an Independent International Bankers called the Federal Reserve, run our monetary system.
Our government is suppose to print and tax to control inflation and deflation, WITHOUT INTEREST.
Ron Paul wants to SIMPLE FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION and END THE FED. ....like President Jackson did!
@hhanks, be sure to check your inbox for email from me, everybody have a great week and see you after thanksgiving!!!
Gotta go. Happy Turkey Day Everyone!
Hope you get to spend time with your family. :)
Looks like things are winding down here so I'm going to say adios for now. Thanks for answering my questions.
Have a great day.
ok. Now that I'm here of course I can't of anything. Roundtable meetings are once a week correct?
@redhededgrl Yes though no roundtable next week due to the holiday - we hope to see you in two weeks, though!
@16USA60, I guess this blog is intended for subjects related to CNN iReport in general.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving. See ya...
I have been an American in the dark for a long time and when I first heard about the Federal Reserve Act 1913, signed by President Wilson WITH THE history of the First Bank and Second Bank when our country was first born, I am just in total shock. I thought no way could this be true, but it is.....HR 1207 is in Congress to AUDIT THE FEDERAL RESERVE. Right now we can't even audit the bank that PRINTS OUR MONEY. This is down right crazy.
Thanks for ur answers hhanks! happy thanksgiving
Also, for those who asked Kim Kardashian questions, the interview will be posted/aired after the holidays -- we'll let you know when it's up!
Happy Thanksgiving All!!!
And by holidays, I mean Thanksgiving :)
Happy Thanksgiving to the iReport team and my fellow iReporters.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you all have a restful holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving @everyone! See you in December!
couldnt come to the roundtable... but later than never... read all your comments and wish you all a Happy thanksgiving :))))
