Championships streaming info?
« on: September 27, 2017, 01:22:06 PM »
Will the Championships be streamed live this year? The banner on the front page of the site leads to a dead page: http://dev.mrda.org/mrda-television/

Oops, thanks for bringing that to our attention! We will get that fixed asap. The text link in the footer does work, so feel free to check out some old games! We will post updates on Facebook and the event page when we have the exact link for the the stream.

MRDA champs has always been free to stream and it's my goal to keep it that way for as long as possible

I guess the WFTDA stream didn't happen?

I was able to find the livestream link on Reddit.

In case anyone else needs it: https://livestream.com/derbyduckproductions

Hi Rogzilla,
We're  unsure where the promotion from wftda.tv came from, but are glad you were able to tune in. We had posted the link on the social media sites and in the app. I am not happy that you tuned in, and hope you enjoyed the games! Thank you to whoever shared it on reddit as well!

I'm not sure how I got directed to WFTDA TV either. However, here's where I was sent by clicking on links from the front page:

http://dev.mrda.org/mrda-television/ - This is the link from the banner. 404 page.

https://mrda.org/mrda-television/ - This is the link in the footer. Includes YouTube videos for the 2016 Championships but nothing else.

https://www.facebook.com/MensRollerDerbyAssociation/ - Facebook link in the footer. Page not found.

https://twitter.com/mrdanews - Twitter link in the footer. No tweets since June 2016.

That's the point where I went to Reddit and found a discussion about it with the link. Later on I saw that there is a Facebook page for MRDA at https://www.facebook.com/theMRDA/ and saw there was also a link to livestream.com there.

Also:

Hi Rogzilla,

Was it shared on a social media site other than Facebook? I don't see anything on Instagram that's newer than October 16, either. Is there a different Twitter account where it was announced?

Also, which app are you referring to?

The app:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.silures.cymruclash2017
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cymru-clash-app/id1293769695?mt=8

Most of the twitter updates came from @cymruclash and people tagging #mrda2017.

WOW, that's great that an app was developed for this! I wish I knew about it, I would have been able to view the video without firing up my laptop. I also didn't know there was a Twitter account just for the tournament.

I'm not all that active on Facebook, I'm guessing most of this was announced there. I thought I was keeping up on MRDA news by subscribing to the news feed (https://mrda.org/feed/) via my RSS reader, but unless I missed it, none of these things (the Livestream link, the tournament Twitter feed, the app) are mentioned in the articles.

I realize I'm now complaining about this, but it's a little disappointing that news or video for the championship wasn't accessible within one or two clicks of the MRDA web site. As with everything derby, I know everything here is a result of unpaid effort, and I'm willing to volunteer to help out if more hands (or thumbs) are needed to improve this for next season.
