BW:PODCAST

This project is meant to coordinate and standardize the transcription of Ronald D. Moore's freely available episode podcasts. Our goal is to produce a searchable text repository for purposes of citation. At this time, we will only be transcribing freely available podcasts from SciFi.com, not additonal DVD commentaries. Ron D. Moore and David Eick have recorded commentary tracks for the Miniseries (also including director Michael Rymer), "33", "Bastille Day", "Act of Contrition", and "You Can't Go Home Again". However, they have not been put up online for free but are only available in the Season 1 DVD set. Therefore, transcripts of these are not provided here, though relevant quotes may be found sourced in certain articles on Battlestar Wiki.

This project is a daughter of the Citation Jihad.

Standards

Namespace

Podcast transcripts should be named after the episode to which they correspond with the addition of the (podcast) namespace, for example, Podcast:Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down.

Structure

Begin each podcast article with the podcast data template.

Use first-level headings to divide Teaser and Act breaks. Make each heading an offsite link to the appropriate podcast segment (if it exists), e.g.

==[http://www.scifi.com/battlestar/downloads/podcast/mp3/109/bsg_ep109_1of5.mp3 Teaser]==

Try to break up RDM's comments into paragraphs along topical lines.

Transcription

RDM frequently uses "uh", "um" and "y'know" as discourse particles. For readability's sake, try to exclude these where they interrupt the flow of an otherwise grammatical sentence.

Where RDM interrupts himself, end the last word of the first statement with an emdash. You may include whatever discourse particles he uses to introduce the next thought. For example:

"I think it's a very good movie, one that I always thought was a— y'know, prime for us to do a riff on."

Generally, you may ignore emphasis except where RDM's tone is critical to the interpretation of a statement (e.g. sarcasm).

Links

Where RDM mentions a BSG episode or character, link to our own article. Where he mentions a television show or actor which we do not have (or need) our own article for, offer a link to the corresponding page on IMDB. If another resource such as Wikipedia or Memory Alpha has more comprehensive information, you may link there at your discretion. To avoid overlinking, only link once per act break.

Also do not be afraid of adding {{Podcastref}} to a podcast where important information is being said. This is useful for citing information using the {{cite podcast}} template.

Corrections

Except for simple spelling errors, do not offer a "correction" without first having listened to the relevant portion of the recording. Always leave a comment on the talk page explaining your change.

Application

Express Scribe is a piece of free software (they give it away in the hopes that you buy the tie-in products) that allows you to playback the podcasts with hotkey controls (so you can edit in the Battlestar Wiki window but still pause/rewind/play), as well as allowing for variable speed playback (so you can transcribe at a slower rate). Express Scribe also remembers where you left off when you open it, allowing you to resume work at the same spot. It is available for Windows and Mac OS X.

Checkins

When you begin work on a transcription, place your name beside the segment you are working on. When you've completed and uploaded it, mark your name next to "Transcribed". Afterwards, it would be helpful for a second user to verify the transcription.
