Can someone explain to me the difference between Ninja Academy and Seg101?
I’ve seen many times that CM accepts people who have graduated from Ninja Academy or Seg101, but I have no idea what the difference is. Are these two different academies, or is it the same one but under a different name?
I investigated that some time ago and it turned out that they hadn’t been accepting new students in a very long time. Their website did still exist somewhere, but they weren’t active. So basically, nowadays the NSSA is the only option.
I think they are no longer active. I did send a couple of messages to a couple of them (forgot who I sent to now) quite some time ago, hoping to find out more, and to sign up for SEG101. I was curious and wanted to know the difference between the two segging academies.
Power segmentors have special access to segment on all the channels on Viki. segmentors can become power segmentors if they wish to become one and we(any community member) can nominate a segmentor for that position.
Inorder to maintain their status they must cut atleast 3000( I don’t know if this is exactly the correct number) in span of 3 months.
I read an article about power segmentors on the help centre,but now it’s not there.
You will get this badge if you become a power segmentor
Back in the days …
When sometimes seggers were needed at a certain moment, they could just “jump” into a project without being added, I think it was even before you could add subbers to a team. All these measures didn’t exist as far as I remember.
Power segmenters had the experience and the qualification and were recommended, I don’t think it is “needed” now. Isn’t it with seggers just like with subbers, they need to be added to the team now, it wouldn’t change that much if they are Power Segmenter, or not?
Edit, followed your link was thrown out of the Help Center not the first time. Opened the topic later and wanted to follow the “here” that was mentioned under Power Segmenter and this is what happened:
Oh, I deleted my ‘at the moment’ at the end of my sentence .
Yeah, makes sense that it was like that in the past and would’ve probably been helpful . It would be nice if Viki clarified what a power segmenter is these days and whether it’s just a badge or something more…
There are still people who are able to segment trailers months before there is even a CM. And I’m not talking about the staff.
Still, we had someone nominated a long time ago and never got a response from Viki.
