I lurk in here from time to time, never posted though, and this is the only time I've logged in w/my name. I'm a small-time producer, working with Narada, Virgin, Higher Octave, Capital, BMG, Windham Hill, and other small labels. Vegas is my tool of choice. We did very well at Sundance this year with a video edited in, and scored partially with Vegas 3.0, even though it was betaware at the time. Sonic Foundry, like ALL software companies, has been undergoing great stress and strife. This means that they can't afford to have someone from their tech support here all the time. I'd offer to moderate this forum, just as I do the WWUG and COW forums, except that a lot of the posts in a lot of the forums are just whining, and not really into getting anything done. At the www.creativecow.net, we don't have this problem, it's genuine pro's and wanna-be pro's in the community. Tens of thousands of them. The Vegas forum has over 200 posts a day, and none of them whining. These forums are great, it's a good community. But to take the arrogance that Sonic Foundry should be removed from them because they don't have someone to dedicate 3-4 hours a day to you? C'mon! There are at least 50 sites out there for Sonic Foundry products. Even if they just gave 15 mins a site per day, that's still 2 people working full time for these sites. They've got to make a profit. And they've got to take care of paying, currently under tech support customers first. And THAT, they do very well. We've tested them for magazines. They are one of the top companies in response time. No, I don't work for Sonic Foundry. I've been an endorsee for over 10 years though. And won a Grammy, 2 Emmy's, and numerous other awards in addition to selling well over 10 million records using their tools. I'm also nominated for a second Grammy this year, partially because of Sonic Foundry. There are tons of Sonic Foundry lovers out there. Someone who is not an employee would be great for this site. And there are a LOT of those out there. Maybe advertise on the COW or WWUG for a forum host.
