I'll put this out here in case you need a logo.... It's not too amazing or anything, I kind of just whipped it up in a minute after watching the latest episode. Feel free to use it if you can't find anything else.
I fully support this stream and I've wanted to do something of this nature for a long time since modcraft died out. So good luck you guys :D
Oh hey, do you guys need any help with the show that doesn't involve actually hosting one? I'd like to help out but I don't think I'd be any good as a host, but maybe I could help with announcements or planning or something? Dunno....

-Overlays. Big full screen ones for every day except Terraining Tuesday, and small ones that can be used as watermarks, which should be themed according to the day and hold the name of the host (for example, something like TheAlmaity made here for Mephs' Data Monday, except it needs to be not as high).
-Any kind of tips on how to make the stream go more smoothly. Increasing FPS, quality, sound volume... getting the overlays to work smoothly, stuff like that.
-Perhaps some kind of app to easily calculate timezone differences. Something that allows people to compare their timezone to the timezone of Mephs (GMT-7), me (GMT+1) or Deathtorn (GMT-3) to figure out at what time a show will start for them.
-Interesting people to join TheAlmaity on me for the podcasts we plan to hold on Sunday. We'll get one different guest each week, but I'm sort of looking for a set third person who has editor experience and thinks he could be an interesting addition to discussions regarding mapmaking we'll have.
-For Mephs to realize the stream is called Sc2streamster instead of Sc2streamer.
-For me to figure out a way to Skype on-stream without the sound quality being of abominable level.
I reckon that's pretty much it, aside from us casters doing some 'improving' ourselves (for which I've already noted some stuff down).
Edit: I forgot one important one. We need a mod that is able to news the stream whenever Mephs or Deaththorn start casting, and preferably one who can also remove the newspost when the stream goes offline again. I can do it for terraining tuesdays and sunday's podcast, but with the US-EU time differences Mephs' cast times are so later for me that I often can't stick around to do the newsing.
Well I was able to news & un-news the show yesterday no problem, it went from 7:00 to 8:00 PM for me. So I'll be able to do that for you guys most nights unless I have something unusual that prevents me from getting to a computer. I'll also see if I can make some art for you guys, hopefully it won't be too bad.... I'm not exactly a Photoshop pro.
edit- okay here's an idea I had for newbie Friday. You know, because newbies are always getting frustrated? I don't like the bar at the bottom, I'll see if I can make that look nicer later. But do you like the design concept or should I go with something totally different?
The Map Night server isn't mine, it belongs to someone else, but I doubt they'll mind :)
For the overlay - It's awesome =D
I'll try and make some more overlays sometime, a bit addicted to Terraria at the moment ;)
EDIT: Dont think Moz mentioned this, but Zelda, maybe you can be a sort of chat mod/support guy for the US streams? Right now I'm doing that for Moz's stream (answering questions, banning trolls and spammers that dont show up, alerting Moz on skype if something goes terribly wrong, etc.)
Yeah I guess I could do that. I doubt that there are that many spammers, with all of 12 viewers and all.... I'll see if I can improve that last overlay a bit, I really don't like the bar at the bottom...... >.<
edit- modified the bar at the bottom a bit....still not sure if I like it tho. I have another idea, we'll see how that turns out. Should hopefully look a bit more high-techy next time.
edit #2- Okay, I like the newest version the best. I feel a little bit better about this one ;) The trigger one is pretty bad...I couldn't think of any ideas :(
@Almaity What did you do to get that nice effect in your image?
edited once again-
.....It's 9:02 (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time.... no sc2streamster?? Where is it? I want my newbie friday!!!
A) Newbie Friday not happening is probably miscommunication between me and Mephs. I suggested to cancel it if we swinged around some dates, but we ended up not changing anything. I assumed Mephs would simply host Newbie Friday anyway, but I'm assuming now that he simply thought we would cancel it completely.
B) Triggering Thursday is cool, but it's going to be hosted by Deaththorn starting next week, so you'd need to make some name modifications there.
