Using the AIR Forums
Subscribe to receive emails from the Community Forums by visiting your Account Settings>Email Notifications. Then select the frequency in which you'd like to receive emails: Immediately (with every new post), daily (digest), or weekly (digest).
Posting to the Forums
Post to any forum by clicking “Start a Discussion” from your profile drop down menu or at airmedia.org/community. You can also email a post to any forum, as long as your membership is current. Each forum has its own email address.
Can I edit or delete a post?
Because posts and replies are sent to subscribers as soon as they are posted, there’s no way to edit posts that are already on the site. In extraordinary cases AIR staff can edit an existing post for you, but edits won’t be reflected in AIRster inboxes and many members will continue to respond to the post as it was sent to them.
You can delete posts and replies you have posted (and you can ask a moderator to delete a post that is threatening or abusive), but this action will only remove the post (and any replies) from the site.
Who moderates the Forums?
The Forums are moderated by AIR staff who follow the Community Guidelines.
- AIR Conversations is our "catch all" forum. If you subscribe to no other forum, subscribe to this one. This is where AIR shares announcements and most people ask industry questions. Email this forum directly at [email protected].
- Pitching is a place ask questions related to pitching stories. You can ask for feedback, and share ideas. Email the pitching forum directly at [email protected]. This forum isn't terribly active, but there are other pitching resources located in our pitching Freelancer Tools if you get stuck.
- Tape Syncs as posted when an opportunity is made available to AIR members. We are seeing more tape syncs posted to the Tape Sync Forum as the world begins to resemble life before a global pandemic. If want alerts when a tape sync is posted, you should subscribe to this forum. If you have a Tape sync to post email [email protected] with details of your sync. If you're posting a tape sync we *strongly* encourage you to lead with the location and date! A subject line like "BOSTON: Tape sync Fri., Oct. 11." helps ensure that folks in and around Boston will get back to you quickly, and let's AIRsters in New Mexico skim right past.
- Technical Advice is another quiet forum but it's one of our most helpful. It’s a place to ask questions about your gear, recording equipment, and software and get responses from experienced producers and engineers. Email the technical advice forum directly at [email protected].
- Website Questions and Feedback was started when we launched the new website, but is relatively dormant now. It is a great place make suggestions about features on airmedia.org that you'd like to see and share your input. Email [email protected] to post to the forum or email our Head of Product Innovation Hannah Eaves at [email protected].
International Members Forum is another relatively dormant forum although our pool of international members is growing daily. If you're passionate about connecting our audio friends from around the globe, reach out to [email protected] with your ideas about how to invigorate our space.
If you are a good point of contact for an existing regional group it would be fantastic if you’d hop on our Regional Groups forum ([email protected]) and introduce yourself, so that new AIR members know how to connect.
