I initially had this idea (on a much smaller scale) a couple of months back, and Evildrporkchops has revived this idea once more in his latest GCI commentary.
Many GCI commentators have been giving shoutouts and retweeting and spreading each others' content to their subscribers, and it's been fantastic to observe and experience.
BUT I think there is something more we can do. Something that will be pretty damn epic.
I want to make a video that includes a short, but oh so sweet, sample of EVERY GCI COMMENTATORS' content.
This video will be made available to ALL to upload to your own channels (commentator OR OTHERWISE) and spread the word that there is a dedicated community of commentators for this game. Those with access to larger channels, e.g. my access to Pixel Enemy, may even be able to get this video out there to a massive audience.
For those with partnerships, I have no idea what limits you have on sharing your videos, but I think you could make a short video (maybe on another channel if partners restrict you) which could be used to give a sample of the content on your main channel. I also need help sorting the licensing to be able to upload this to Pixel Enemy, and for others to upload to other larger channels...
For those with Twitter, Facebook, MySpace (lol) etc. PLEASE use your power to get this out there to the commentators you know!

N.B. Commentators will be listed in alphabetical order. Samples will be 10-15 seconds long (depending on the amount of commentators that wish to partake). Commentators choose and submit their own samples. I'm afraid 720p video will be required. (For those posting in lower quality, I will find a way of getting you out there. Please understand that this video needs to make a fun yet semi-professional impression on the audience).
Let's do this!

Edit: I'm discovering new commentators using this thread If the sign up list becomes extremely long then episodes may be an option. Maybe a series of with each episode including 5 commentators... I'm just voicing ideas so please feel free to ignore this... We will see how long this list becomes!
