Over on the Genealogy & Family History site, we are exploring possible ways to expand our user base. We have had the idea to create a short promotional video about the site, which could be shared in other online genealogy communities. There are no firm plans yet as to what this video would contain. However, before taking this any further there is a growing list of questions that we need answered:
- First and foremost, can we do this?
- Has this been done by a Stack Exchange site before? If it has, it would be good to see any previous promo videos to get some ideas.
- Would our status as a beta site have any impact on whether this could be implemented?
- Could video or still screen shots of the Stack Exchange site be included?
- What are the necessary permissions or approvals that would need to be obtained from Stack Exchange? This obviously will depend somewhat on the content, but are there any general guidelines?
