iReport roundtable: Thursday at 2:30 p.m. ET

Please join us here at 2:30 p.m. ET for our first iReport roundtable of 2012. It will be nice to catch up with everyone after the holidays and we'd love to meet new members of the community.

 

We can talk about anything you want, but we'd also like to hear your story ideas for 2012. We'd also like to hear your thoughts about the future of the roundtable -- is the time good, should we change the format, are there things you'd like to talk about?

 

We'll open comments at 2:30 p.m. ET and look forward to talking with you then.

One of the big things I'm interested in hearing is what sort of projects or assignments would you like us to try.

We're gearing up for 2012 and we're trying to focus as much as possible on projects that we feel passionately about. We want you to be passionate about the assignments as well.

Ground will be broken, I can promise you that beetraveler.

I don't know if everyone saw Mike's blog post yesterday, but iReporters in Nigeria have really led the coverage on these protests there.

It's been exciting to see the flood of stories from the region.

We also got a great first-hand account of what's going on in the area affected by the Philippine mudslides today.

 

Those are really exciting examples of what we can do together.

As someone who has been here for quite a while, I do not envy David and the rest of the team as the elections get closer. I really do not want to see the vitriol of the past take over again. Was very nasty back in the day and I see some of the same creeping back in from all sides.

Happy New Year, everyone! :o)

 

It was brought to my attention that there is a download" button available on iReports which allows anyone to come along and download our photos and videos to use and keep as their own.  Is there a way we can opt out of that?  I do not want my photos/videos being downloaded, shared, manipulated, posted on other websites and even sold without my control, permission, compensation or even credit.  Can that feature be removed? 

 

I was informed that my New Years Eve in London video had made its way to YouTube without my knowledge or consent.  Also, a fellow iReporter contacted me and told me she had downloaded by photos and turned them into posters for her home.  I wouldn't mind so much, if I had control who I give them to for free.

One thing that would help is a longer notice of special programmes-  examples from 2011 were the CNN features on Poland and (err, another country - I forget which one!)

 

They were only announced on CNN the week before, too late for me to make contributions.

 

If you're featuring a country or theme, with local CNN reporters-  or sending anchors form Atlanta, it must be planned some time in advance and I'm sure I and others could contribute - not just travel, of course! It would make life easier for the programming planners, too, I guess.

 

Just a suggestion!

@davidw If you think about fences are everywhere for every reason, take the North South divide of Korea, big fence, then there's the White not so big and then there's your white picket fence and of course the ones surrounding prisons. IS your fence keeping you in or others out. I think it was the Norwegians that invented the fence.

The UK has the Queen's Jubilee, with lots going on - including a flotilla of 1,000 ships, led by the Queen, on the River Thames (and a day's holiday for us, too!).

 

We also have the Olympics.

 

Although media accreditation is difficult, there's loads of stories around the country  - including the Olympic Torch being carried 1,000 miles around the country, by 1,000 people, one mile each!

 

Each country will have it's own stories too - it would be great to get an iReport from each contestant's country ....

That is concerning, joyful. You've posted way more than me, but still...there are some that I do not mind sharing with my fellow iReporters, but would not want to see then splashed out in other places. Great points. Maybe a button to "opt-out" the sharing aspect prior to posting a report should be available.

Hi JoyfulGypsy

We're looking at what's going on with the download button.

It looks like it's only enabled on some assignments.

 

The reason we wanted it, was so that iReporters could work together on special mashup assignments.

 

It is what made projects like the Katrina Then and Now photos possible.

 

It does seem to be acting odd, so we're looking at it.

January 5, 2012

I used to know a Norwegian fence builder. The person came from a very long line of fence builders and I used to listen to her stories about her family and their amazing fence building. Most of the time it put me to sleep but the fence idea caught my attention. The ones that come to my mind are the slate fences in the Cotswalds, the same slate that was used to make the first pencil by the way! Village of Borrowdale famous for fences and pencils!

Fences ... hmm .. I should be in the island of Cyprus next month - a country divided in two - one of the last in the world - by NATO troops as the Greek and Turkish sides continue to argue.

I could see the "fence" thing too...for example, living in Texas and the proximity of the Mexican border begs the question "Do we need a boarder fence?" if so, what type? Physical? Electronic? Cyber? Interesting indeed.

Here's another idea. It's a bit of a trade secret but you're all so good at this now so here goes.

 

"est" stories. est as in the superlative fastEST, biggEST, PrettiEST, ugliEST, longEST, TallEST, every city or country has one. What about the EST in your location?

Hi @JoyfulGypsy - sorry to be slow weighing in on this one. It's been a busy day!

 

The "download" button is something we've used since the iReport site started, but we use it really sparingly. In this case, we accidentally turned it on for the New Year's Eve assignment and are turning it off now. But sometimes it's really useful to allow downloads. For example, last year when we did a project around the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina we enabled the download button on historic photos of the damage because we were asking people to re-create them for the anniversary.

Thanks, David.  If I had known downloading was going to be possible, I would not have contributed to the assignment.  I'm disappointed that this happened at all and don't want to be a part of such assignments in the future.  Would you please let us know in advance when an assignment is going to be open to downloading?  I don't mind giving CNN iReport my photos for free, but I do mind giving them away to everyone and anyone else out there, too?  I am not happy with this.

Bonjour everyone!

 

Happy new year to you all and good health!

Hello! David,

I was hoping for 2012 and for the sake of freedom of speech and liberty around the planet to see more and more ireporter's face on instead of hiding behind avatars. I think we claim for freedom, we want to stop slavery... but than again we hide behind avatar isn't that peculiar. I think for people who fight for equality, freedom and human rights we should express ourselves openely with a picture not an avatar.

 

Also, I would like to suggest to have a radio button option at the end of our stories so we can click and share our stories direclty to someone in particular. A lot of the time, my friends went to search for my articles but coulnd't find it. Is that faisible?

 

I think the choices of stories you give us were quite good hope I receive an email update when you come up with a new subject so I could participate more often.

 

Have anything hot for this month so when I get better I can run around the globe for exciting assignment!

 

Let's all have fabulous stories to tell. Good luck everyone!

On the topic of fences:

Fences date back to the Scandinavians, not specifically the Norwegians, actually. In fact, the fence building "tradition" is more of a Swedish one. (Norwegians are most notably connected to their viking/sea history.)

 

An interesting fact is that the original wooden Scandinavian fences were simply to keep animals out, and not to mark boundaries. Boundaries, on the other hand, were marked by natural landscapes, such as streams and rivers, the easiest boundary markers. As such, in Scandinavian language, the words for boundaries were the same words used to describe rivers etc.

Personally I'm not a fan of the download button as it puts that video out of the direct control of somebody that I have an approved relationship with. That said, if somebody wants it bad enough it's obviously very easy to download with a button anyway.

@JoyfulGypsy - Like Lila said, we would generally only use the dowload button on assignments where we want people to collaborate.

In this case, it was enabled by mistake, but in cases where we meant to do it, we have included instructions on downloading the material and what we want people to try to do with it.

Another example where we tried this was with the Around the World in a Day project because we wanted iReporters to try making their own mashup videos.

I'm sorry for the mistake.

My last comment on "fences":

The tradition of fence building is an interesting one. There are ton of amazing natural, man-made, as well as imagined boundaries in the world -- many being built (ex. new countries etc.) and many crumbling down (ex dictatorships etc). Not a boring topic at all, nor are the stories behind it.

@joyfulgypsy and @markpel I've had my work stolen by former partners as well so I know how infuriating it is. They're the lowest of low life's. They're disgusting!

how many republican candidates believe in climate change? would some just leave it up to GOD and ignore it? this could affect everyone everywhere on the planet, there should be more discussion.
