I think you'd be better holding off, do one and wait until doing the other.

You don't want to do it too close together either as it could feel too much been there done that.

Maybe you do a hype video for one and a storyline introduction for the other.

I think sometimes people over rely on hype videos to introduce people when a good storyline introduction can work just as well if not even better.

I've found another successful indy BTB, I'm surprised I've missed it before. There are flaws, but it lasted a while.

I've never seen that project before, the rosters alone have given me an erection.

Yeah, I said it.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Quick question regarding timing, do people prefer having a BTB in real time? For example, one show a week with a big show at the end of the month, or do people like it to be in virtual time, so just keep going as much as you can?

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

^^^It's much easier for both reader and writer to do what you can, when you can. Doing a BTB with real life time forces deadlines and pressures you to get stuff done by a certain amount of time, which takes away a lot of the fun of doing this, and thus, you work will almost certainly suffer, thus your readers/potential readers will suffer. And I personally like to think of this as a hobby and not a school assignment.

Of course, if your natural pace would be to do a show a week, go for it. Not saying it's not doable, but I would think over time, it would become somewhat difficult.

If you have the time, try and produce a show a week. I could never manage to do it, most of the time I managed a show a month.

That's because your shows were filled with heavily detailed content.

Your Pat Patterson segments or Stephanie McMahon's investigation of Kane speak for themselves.

I really miss you. (NO HOMO!)

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Could I do a Booker that wasn't based on wrestling.
