  • Fan Service with Special Guests is the best!

    ColeG

    As mentioned on this last weeks episode, Reina Scully from Crunchyroll will be joining us this week! 


    So send in those questions! Also Reddit thread.

    (A bit of advice, the more unique questions are most likely to be answered. I would avoid asking questions about whether we've seen a specific show , if we started watching a show with one idea in mind and that idea changed, or what show got us into anime if you would like to see you question answered on the episode.)


    We will continue talking about Shirobako with episode 5 & 6. I'm really digging the Shirobako talk this season and hope you are as well.


    Also episode 04 (Episode 29???) of Attack on Titan Season 2!


    GAH so many cool things to talk about!!! So tune in Saturdays at 9 am cst!


    xoxo,


    Cole

  • How to: The RT Community Site

    15 hours ago

    Lamkia Keeper of Snarky Sarcasm

    * If you are a regular user let me know if there is anything that needs to be fixed or added! I will make one big edit to the journal after reviewing the comments

    * The QUIRKS section is a recommended read for all users, new or experienced

    I've been seeing a lot of posts asking how to get into the community on the RT site lately and I'm getting tired of writing the same thing over and over again, so this journal is going to act as a general manual on how to navigate the site and use it most effectively. To cut down on reading, there will be no jokes (not even dick jokes, trust me it hurts me more than you) and I'll write info down as concisely as possible.


    More handy info I have put into the comments below:
    - How to actively and effectively get involved in the community (will link in next edit)
    - Some active threads to jump in and get to know people (in next journal, will link later)
    - A list of local RT community groups
    - Some important groups and users to consider following (will link in next edit)


    ~INTRO~

    The TL;DR is that there was a semi-rushed migration in 2015 to the current site and it's got some fixing up to do before it is in good shape. It's not terrible, but there are improvements to be made. If it is beyond your patience, come back in a few months. It has been announced that the community portion of the website will be worked on in the summer. Otherwise, we'd be happy to see you around!~


    BUG REPORTS: Comment on this journal with detailed info of the problem, browser, and OS


    ~BASIC INFO~
    - As a user you have the ability to post journals, create groups (admins make group news posts), post in/create threads, and send private messages (currently only two-way)

    - Customize your profile! Hover over/click on your username in the top right hand corner and click on My Profile. From there you can add info
    - Add friends! Make friends. Do it. Now. You can follow/message/friend people via buttons on their profiles
    - You can also comment on journals, news, and videos. Further, you can reply to journal/news comments. To use this effectively, see the QUIRKS section below
    - The format of the website depends on the resolution of the screen you are using. The instructions below apply to the format used with most computer monitors, but it doesn't differ much from mobile versions
    - The front page shows latest videos and featured news posts from RT Staff, all can be commented on and modded when you click through the title

    - Lil stars? Users with one star next to their usernames are FIRST members, double stars are Double Gold FIRST members. See the FIRST menu above to learn more about joining these services


    ~MOD SYSTEM~
    - Each post has a mod value. Users can add or neg mod via a drop down menu at the bottom of each post
    - Like or agree with something? Mod that shit
    - Popular Content is determined by mod value (more below)


    ~NOTIFICAITONS (+ relevant misc info)~
    - Notifications stack, meaning all new posts to a single thread will be represented by one notification until cleared. Regarding user journals, if you post several in a row, followers will only be notified about the latest journal
    - Notifications appear when:
       • Someone you follow posts a journal
       • A new post appears in a followed thread (you will autofollow any thread you post in)
       • A new episode appears in a followed series (I've been told it's very buggy, though)
       • Someone comments on your journal
       • Someone replies to your comment within a journal
       • Someone tags you (To tag - @ symbol + username without punctuation folllowing, ex @Lamkia )
       • Someone sends you a friend request

    - Notifications DO NOT appear for

       • New uploaded images (people have issues with uploading images anyway, I suggest uploading somewhere else and then posting them as a journal)
       • New threads (will show up on the dashboard, though)
       • New followers


    ~POSTING IMAGES~
    - Images on the internet - copy the direct address to the image (often right clicking the image offers the option to copy this) and paste it to the text editor. The image will automatically populate after you paste the address
    - Local images - Personal albums are hella buggy. Upload them elsewhere (like through imgur) and then use the directions in the above point


    ~DASHBOARD~
    - Under the Community menu
    - Activity from your followed users appears here, unlike notifications it also includes threads
    - On the left are a few handy feeds for filtering content, pretty self explanatory
    - Don't be afraid to pop open the Everyone Feed and comment on stuff! It's one of the best ways to get to know people


    ~GROUPS~
    - Under the Community menu, have their own subforums (accessible through their group page), some have their own chat tabs
    - Have the ability to publish news posts, all followers will be alerted
    - Joining group =/= following group, these are separate actions
    - Active groups to consider following -
    - RT Radio - 3 shows a week, awesome people to chat with, great music! Go to the chat tab on the group page to join in
    - RT World - includes a list of local community groups

    - RT Poppycock - Overseen by RT's own Becca (voice of Sister in RvB), posts humorous articles, expands on topics from the RT Podcast, hosts Fanart Friday
    - Official Web Development Group
    - Your own local group! If applicable


    ~FORUMS~
    - Under the Community menu
    - Forums aren't organized the best way right now and will hopefully be restructured soon. At this point I suggest browsing the Gen Discussion and FIRST forums and then others depending on your interest!
    - *Always read the first post

    - You autofollow threads you post in
    - Consider lurking in an active thread for a little or reading the last few posts before jumping right in. Otherwise feel free to post in old threads.

    - 1337 speak is generally discouraged
    - Otherwise they function just like elsewhere on the internet, have at it!
    - Next journal will feature worthwhile threads, will link here after


    ~POPULAR CONTENT~
    - Under the Community menu
    - Journals and group news with the highest mod values over the past 2 days will appear here (not threads)
    - A great way to get the feel for the community and interact with active users, comment on the posts if you have something to say about it!


    ~REPORTING~
    - Spam and posts with content violating ToU can be reported via the little itty bitty red flags for review
    - Currently there is no way to formally report a user. If you have an issue with a user, contact an admin or flag the relevant post
    - Unfortunately, there is no way to block users right now


    ~QUIRKS /BUGS/ISSUES/What have you~
    - If you post several journals in a row, followers will only be notified about the latest journal. Consider spacing out journals by a day or so for best visibility
    - Friending someone =/= following them, following must be done separately
    - New images don't send notifications
    - This is one even regular users have trouble with (ie pls read this) - When replying to a journal comment, only the user who posted the original comment will be notified 

    Image for clarification:
    tumblr_oou73u26PI1toi0c3o2_r1_1280.png

    (Link to image in case it drops later on)
    Only User1 is getting notifications about these replies. If User1 wants User2 and User3 to get notified about their reply, User1 MUST TAG THEM using @ + username (ex @Lamkia ) in the body of the comment reply. Also, applies to User3 if they want to notify User2. Make sense?
    - Editing a journal resends notifications about it! So think twice before fixing a comma from a year old journal
    -The WYSIWYG text editor is complicated and there is a science to learn if you want to wrangle it. Firefox seems to have a lot of issues with it (spoiler tags don't work, unlinking text in replies is a pain, etc). Chrome seems to work best. Do the best you can with it
    - Following shows is really buggy, not all episodes send out notifications

    - When a new page is added to a thread, it takes a little bit of time before the page count updates and new post notifications might be a little finicky
    - Browsing user image galleries is a huge pain, navigating through pages brings you back to their journals, there isn't a work around except to do some extra clicking

    - Overtime some images linked from Tumblr stop appearing for some reason
    - I know there are more, but I can't think of any other big ones, just little ones not really worthy of comment, let me know in the comments of known bugs/workarounds!

    WHEW, okay. So this is functioning as a basic guide for new users. Look back at the top of this journal for extra info about effectively participating. Have a question? ASK ALL THE QUESTIONS in the comments. 


    And if you're new

    WELCOME TO THE COMMUNITY~

  • A time long forgotten

    I know I'm not the only one still waiting for some perks on the social media end of things. I could make this a formal complaint, but I have found my journals to be a bit more effective in this regard. I know that RT (according to Burnie) is set to begin work on the social media aspect of the site around July(ish). While this is great news I think it is fair to bring up some of the social media perks many of us used to enjoy before the Full Screen buyout/site change.


    For starters there was a much more intuitive community feed. These days we have to look for the dashboard and even that is really just a listing of the latest posts. I can't help but miss the times when there was a legitimate feed that would encourage relationships by displaying those who are the most active or at least had the most intriguing thought of the day. I love that the old mod system is back but is this the price it came at or am I just expecting too much? I have to say a more interactive feed of community users would be fantastic!


    Back in the day when the community still had an amazing presence on the site you could actually see who was liking your posts if you were a Sponsor. That sponsorship has now shifted to a First membership that is more geared for content rather than social media. I am not upset about it. I still love the RT content but the fact remains that a ton of people here abandoned the site because Twitter became a more viable platform. That's just a fact. Liking anything on the RT site does nothing to spread people's posts here unless you are looking at the "most liked" part of the community tab.


    The Notifications here have been absolutely terrible for a long time. Please start with that.


    I will tell you the problems I have with notifications (coming from a journal guy and not a forum person). Let's say I post a journal and people decide to comment on it. I am pretty sure that there are no notifications for a response once a person has already commented once. The only workaround for this is to tag people in your responses. I kinda fucked up the site before when it comes to tagging people and i'd rather not do it again. It's never once been by choice but it happens to me sometimes.


    I know I sound like an entitled asshole right now but anyone who has been here a while can probably feel where I am coming from. I know it's asking a lot, but please do something with this amazing community!

  • Nearly Finished Unpacking

    So a couple weeks ago, I mentioned a few life updates, like moving to a new place. And over the last week I've gotten just about everything unpacked, stored in the closet, and all the cool shit hung on the wall. And the coolest stuff went in the basement. 


    Wall #1

    20170423_102255.jpg

    Wall #2

    20170423_102308.jpg


    Having the whole space pretty much all to myself is going to be pretty awesome, because it means I get to do stuff like keep my green screen up all the time! 


    20170423_184317.jpg


    I'm going to like having room to actually spread out while I'm streaming, instead of being cramped in the same small room where my bed was in the old place. Still playing with the lighting and what not, and working on some back end stuff for the new channel, but it's be a pretty solid couple weeks.

  • Free Speech and stuff is like... free.

    2 days ago

    Kaoru27Umi Princess of Mars

    I wanna talk about free speech again.

    Or like continue talking about it. 

    Seems it's a topic that keeps getting thrown around.


    This is inspired by a Bill Maher diddy about Ann Coulter's recent Berkeley debacle. 



    I 100% agree with him on this.

    People can argue that hate speech isn't free speech. 

    I'm sorry to say it is

    If you don't like it, go shout about it somewhere, because it's your right too. Go hit that hate with hate back. But violence and illegal stuff? Sowwy, can't do that. 


    EVERYONE GETS HATE! YOU GET HATE! YOU GET HATE! I'M OPRAH!

    giphy.gif


    "Hate speech" is subjective. Doesn't mean the person saying it isn't a piece of shit though.


    Look at the Westboro Baptist Church, right? They're a great example of free speech being taken so far beyond Pluto, BUT they have a right to say it, which is what they exercise with those stupid ass signs they make. 


    Interpretation, I guess, is was I'm saying. Everyone has one. Therefore everyone has an opinion... and most people go on the internet and type out nonsense to voice such things. 


    Don't get me wrong, I'm a firm believer of "hey, if you're a troublemaker, better get ready for the consequences." But stand firm with what you believe in, if you truly believe in... and don't get violent.

  • 008 FUNboxing- Merch March Epilogue

    2 days ago

    AgentWashingtub008 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Crackpot of Coffee

    Helo friends, grab yourself a knife and some hot chocolety milk, it’s time for a special 008 FUNboxing! 

      Cx3hbqn.jpg

    Today is not the routine box of fun things that people usually do unboxings of, but a fun little personal thing connecting back to the #merchmarch challenge we all took part in with @ailsarocks . That was fun, wasn’t it.

     

    Well anyway, I got the on-site prize and with that and the anniversary sale (and sponsor code) I rushed to make good on it.

      VlB1X1n.jpg

    Let’s start off with a fun fact, this box was a whole lot bigger than I expected.  Here it is with the #RTBOX next to it for scale.

    -----

    2e3wbqJ.jpg

    Look at all of this paper that was used to ship it in.  (Let’s be honest though, I’m glad they went to the trouble of making sure the precious cargo was well contained.)

    -----

    sBYoMXy.jpg

    That’s more the size I expected (unfortunately there were no surprise goodies). 

    -----

    lFUDj7V.jpg

    This funky little package would confound me if I didn’t already know what was inside and there weren’t holes I have conveniently angled out.

    -----

    0O5Muta.jpg

    Be careful of staples as they may hurt you.

    -----

    TgykHqB.jpg

    The first thing is the excellent Rooster Teeth 14th Anniversary Mocha Mug.  Not only does it have the awesome simple version of the “art deco” 14 Years logo and a solid porcelain body, it’s just that much bigger from a coffee mug to be a mocha mug which is my favorite coffee drink!  I’ll be enjoying this during quite a few podcasts to come I can tell you that.  Just like I will be for the second item.

    -----

    rfO2FoE.jpg

    Ooooh, tease it…

    tMsO6tt.jpg

    Oxms06N.jpg

     noraBOOP! nora I said I would! You can’t keep this geek from getting pink socks from one of my best girls! (Sorry, red… ruby)  These are my first strideline socks and they are cooomfey.

    -----

    R7x7Jvs.jpg

    Also, these markings are way more helpful than writing left and right on the bottom with sharpie.  (Would that even work on socks?) 

    -----

     

    I’m pretty satisfied with my order, it's the winning combination of Nora and Coffee.  What could go wrong?  I gotta thank all of y’all who came to play this Morch Morch too.  It wouldn’t have been nearly as fun without the #RTCommunity.

     

    Well, now that I’m done with this I’ve gotta go watch some movies I don’t like for you guys.  Everyone should know what I mean by now, but I’ve gotta do it.  You deserve to know the truth.

     

    It’s the truth you deserve.

    See y’all soon!
