  • How has Rooster Teeth changed you?

    2 hours ago

    Zetekh

    I first discovered Rooster Teeth in secondary school when I was around 13 or 14? My story is pretty much the same as everyone else, through friends or people I knew in class talking about Red Vs Blue and Achievement Hunter. That night I went home and found myself captivated in Youtube content like I had never seen before. Shows like Five Facts, Fails of the weak, Game Night, Vs and of course GO changed what I thought YouTube could be. By the time I had started to watch RVB Project Freelancer had come to an end, but the Corus trilogy had just begun. I decided I didn't want to be lost in the show so I went back to try and find previous episodes. I remember hearing that now famous line for the very first time as I sat upright in my bedroom with my dads old laptop. I don't remember being blown away by the first episode it just seemed like something funny to watch, however at the same time I couldn't look away. It was genius, it was hillarious and most importantly it felt like it could be something bigger. Eventually I caught up had such an appreciation for the show and what it was. I remember thinking "I know who Griff is because Geoff is one of my favourite Achievement Hunters". But what of the rest of them? Sarge, Church, Caboose, Simmons who are they? This was the question that subsequently changed the next 6 years of my life. 


    I began to discover other shows on the Rooster Teeth YouTube channel. This what eventually led me to RT life, RT shorts and Immersion. This is where I would discover the voices behind RvB and it made me appriciate how much content involved all these personalities. So life was good, a new bit of content I could enjoy most days (aswell as the other channels I would watch) and part of something bigger than me. I remember those days of going back into class after watching new videos and joking and laughing about it with my class mates. I remember the one day in school saying I had never watched the RT podcast because I didn't see the point in them. My mate eventually encouraged me to just "give it a go" and that its just as good as any other show. I only regret not watching it sooner as it has given me hundreds of hours of entertainment. 


    Its only this year that I have become a site member and began to interact with the community in a whole different way. I finally understand now when People like Burnie, Jack, Barbara or Joel have stated in the past that this is the best community on the internet. Its cause its true! There are so many amazing people all here for the same reason and all in love with the same content. Rooster Teeth has made me feel like I'm a part of something even when the world didn't and so I owe most of my teenage years to that. But I go back to the statement I made at the start "My story is pretty much the same as everyone else". In most respects that is true, however RT has changed the person I am today. I'm far more confident in the person I am, I personally believe that I am fucking hillarious (which has to be true cause I said it) and I try and be a nicer person in my life. 


    Did you ever wonder why we're here? Well I know why I am, but I want to hear your guys story. I want to know how RT, The lets Play Network, The Slow Mo guys, and every other channel has changed you and made you the person you are today. 


    Have fun my dudes

  • Getting A Lot Done

    5 days ago

    marettiready Bryan Maretti

    Hi everyone,


    I have done so much this week when it comes to my artwork and animations that I'm shocked on how much I have done.  Since I knocked out my top focused projects, when it comes to working with other people, I had more time to work on my own projects and get stuff done.


    First off, I finally got my video done for the Crocker Art Museum event coming up soon in my hometown of Sacramento, CA.  I will post a sample of the video I made after the event is done.  The video I made goes on for about 23 minutes and it goes on a loop for a 90 minute show while the band is performing.  I have attached a flier of the event (I'm in the middle with The Gold Souls, but no picture of me).NdSy7JK.jpg


    Second, I have been getting more into sound editing for my short animated film project.   Right now, I am doing a rough edit to sound by clipping the necessary sounds to the video clips to see what is working and what is not when they go together.  And whatever sounds I don't have, I have to find new sounds by creating them with certain objects and record them.  I thought this was going to be an easy process to get over quickly, but it's a lot harder than I expected.  I have been learning so much about sound editing and combing them with the videos makes it feel more alive, it's incredible.  But hopefully, I will complete this part of my film and have it, finally, be done.


    So there's a lot going on for me right.  I have taken a break today since it is my birthday, but I will do more work in the following weeks ahead.


    In the meantime, I have more drawings to share.  I have been doing a lot of skeleton's this Halloween.

    My card was declined for my renewal of my First membership despite there being money definitely on my card. It must have been a glitch but now Rooster Teeth says I have to resubscribe - but I was grandfathered in at $15.99 every 6 months. I feel kind of scammed/cheated, ya know? Like why do I was to have a bump in price when it was either RT's or the banks fault for this error? It's really upsetting that my grandfathered rate, which in itself felt kind of cool to have, is being taken away unfairly. Wish they could fix that and reinstate it. Support gave me a discount code for now but once it's renewed in 6 months, it's going to be full price which is still rude but I feel like there's nothing I can do. Thanks, Rooster Teeth. I'm disappointed.

    So I've been watching Rooster Teeth content for 5 and a half now, and after so long I've finally decided to get a little more into the community.

    I'm from Portugal and it's almost impossible to find anyone who watches Rooster Teeth content in my country. 

    I'd like to just befriend some people who like to talk about games, comics, Rooster Teeth (of course) and all that nerdy stuff and beyond.

    Btw I'm 19 and a art student.

    A new season begins. Fall to be exact. We are rapidly approaching the denouement of this year. So if you use the dramatic structure, you could say we might be in the falling action. I think that the turning point of the story is will happen first though.


     My fate is going to change. Something amazing awaits. Not just for me, but for all of you. 


    We all have goals we want to accomplish. Some are simple and others not so much. Life is filled with so many little things that will try to stray you from that vision you have. It will be so easy to lose it, but I know that if you focus on it, it will come true. 


    I have been imagining a career for myself since I finished college. That was almost four years ago now. That vision has not happened. 


    Yet.


    This year has been a focus of creativity every single day. So far I have done it, just like I promised myself. The help of my twin brother has allowed me to do so many inspiring things. We have written screenplays, created a twitch channel/community, filmed a short film teaser and traveled all the way to London for a company I hope I can work with someday. 


    The journey has only just begun for me. It has only just begun for you.


    I grew up with people not believing in me or my dreams. I promised to never do that to other people. So let's accomplish great things together because...


    I believe in you.

  • Pushing Myself Further

    3 weeks ago

    marettiready Bryan Maretti

    Hi everyone,


    I haven't been posting in awhile because, as always, I'm still working on my projects.  Everyday for me has been a busy one when it comes to completing digital work for myself and with others.  I'm still working on the museum's video project for an event coming up next month and I'm continuously drawing everyday to build myself further in my style of work and to find new directions when it comes to changing my work.  With all of these projects going on at once, I have to delay my film project for the time being.  I'm so close to finishing it, I'm working on sound editing for the film.  I want to get to it and finish it, but I have to get to the other projects because of the deadline I set for myself.


    With everything going on in my life when it comes to my digital projects, my work and for others, as well balancing my full-time job, I'm starting to get overwhelmed with all of the projects I decided to do.  Don't get me wrong, I love doing these projects and all the drawings I do, but sometimes working on them gives me anxiety when it comes to getting to the deadline.  But through all of the experiences I have done with all the work I have accomplished so far, it shows that I can go further and to do more with my work.  I can't let my anxiety get to me, I have to push through whatever is in my way and to keep going forward afterwards.


    Now that's off my chest,  I have more drawings to share.

  • Post RTX London and Beyond

    4 weeks ago

    trevordylan

    Dear RT Family,


    So this year started off quite differently than others. I was told by one of my friends to start a twitch channel with my twin brother, Rob, because he said we had "a voice." A unique one. This was daunting to us that he felt that way. We were just two guys from a small town in Massachusetts. 


    Anyways, it took a few days, but we launched it under the name "ImLividTV" (most people just call us "Livid" though). I think the "livid" part just comes from Rob's rage to honest. Don't tell him I said that. 


    We have met people from all over the world. From the UK to Norway and all the way to Japan. We thought that would be our focus this year outside of filmmaking, but things got even crazier. In a good way. I promise! 


    It was thanks to an announcement that Rooster Teeth was getting a new RT Games Community Manager that I was lucky enough to meet Cricket. She is amazing, kind and so supportive. There aren't enough words to describe her. 


    We started chatting and watching her stream some cool games on her twitch channel. And then, she inspired us to venture out to RTX London and meet her in person there. 


    So here's the thing I have never been out of the country before so this was a crazy thing for me. Plus I'm not the biggest fan of flying, but I couldn't find a reason not to go. I have been a part of the RT Community for quite sometime and yet, I haven't really met anyone who was a part of it in person. 


    We ended up booking our flights and began our journey to London. We landed and found out that Cricket was not going to be able to make the event. I was definitely sad to hear that, but I know that we will definitely meet someday (Plus she is probably crazy busy with the upcoming release of Bendy and the Ink Machine next month). 


    She was kind enough to let us know that Jackie, the RT Community Manager would be there. We were able to meet her on our first day and it was great to chat with someone who, also never been out of the country before. 


    I'm so thankful that Cricket was able to be a voice that pushed us in a direction that we needed to go. The trip to RTX London even allowed us to meet some of the Livid Family who lived in the UK. It was so incredible meeting people who have been so supportive of our shenanigans on twitch. I consider myself so lucky to have all of these people in my life. They are the reason I keep working toward being a writer, an actor, a content creator, and most of all, just being a friend.


    We caught the "A Million Pounds Although...," "RT Animation," "RTUK Community," and both "Kinda Funny" Panels during RTX London. We met so many amazing people who were just as passionate as we were. One of the Kinda Funny Best Friends, MC Fixer was someone who I had only met on twitter and he was even more amazing in person. I hope that I am lucky enough to collaborate with him on content in the future. 


    The friendship he has with Greg Miller is amazing and you can tell the impact that community has had on him. It's these stories that show us why we love being creative and pursing the future we know is possible. They push us to never give up on what you are meant to do.


    The truth is, I have no idea where life is taking me, I'm just along for the ride. I am keeping my head up and looking towards the future. The goal from here is finish 2018 on the best note possible and grow more next year. 


    I'm sending you love, no matter where you are on this marble we call Earth.


    Thanks for listening to me get emotional and ramble.


    Love,

  • RT Has it changed?

    1 month ago

    BreadyBoy

    Am I the only one who feels like RoosterTeeth has changed. Now obviously RT is going to change with time but i really feel like it's changing and not for the best. I'm not going to bash RT as I still love them and think that the company is great but I feel like some stuff has kinda made me grow distant from the company and made watch a lot less of their content. I feel like the golden years of RoosterTeeth as a whole were 2010 - 2014 in 2010 they really started branching out with their youtube channel. Also Red vs Blue was getting better and better! in those 4 years I believe RoosterTeeth was as it's absolute best! we had many great shows back then like RT Life and RT recap the podcast was amazing not saying it isn't now. But the number 1 thing I believe that made Rooster Teeth amazing back then was that it wasn't as big and not as formal. Now most of you are going to say RoosterTeeth is everything but formal which yeah is kinda true but I'm saying it grew bigger and bigger. 1 big way I feel like RoosterTeeth changed was the office which I think represents the changing that I didn't like very well. back in the smaller office it felt like a small company that was just having fun. Everyone knew each other. Achievement hunter wasn't super big and neither was animation. but when they moved offices and achievement hunter moved from the main office to across the parking lot which it should seem like not a big deal but to me it is. I feel like no one really knowns each other anymore. I feel like Burnie, Gus. Geoff, Joel, Matt are a lot different now. Constantly at the Founders of RoosterTeeth panels at RTX which have always been some of my favorite panels, They always say that they barely ever see each other anymore. Now of course I can't say any of this with evidence as I've never worked at RoosterTeeth before but I feel like with the smaller office and way less employee's they all would see each other a lot and everyone was a lot stressed and happy. One last thing is one of my favorite parts about RoosterTeeth was the people. Back in 2013 I could basically name all the employees who worked there but now I barely know anyone there. Which could of course be me just not watching as much anymore. I feel like the people I watched back in 2010 - 2014 grew up. Just take Achievement hunter for example, all of AH has changed drastically, Go watch one of their older Minecraft letsplays from the first 100 episodes. I guarantee you there will be screaming, laughing, craziness all around. But now it's a lot more tame. I feel like thats obvious as Michael, Gavin, Geoff, Jack, Ryan, have all grown up in their own way I feel like no one at RoosterTeeth is having as much fun as they use too. I feel like the company just got too big which is maybe a very hipster thing to say but that's just how I feel. I'm just a guy who likes seeing the smaller company and everyone knowing everyone. Everyone being by each other. One reason I love the RT Doc Why We're here is that it shows the history of RoosterTeeth and shows how they evolved and I don't blame RoosterTeeth for becoming a bigger company they had too as they growed more popular especially with RUBY. But It kinda just makes me sad knowing that I'll never get to relive the Experience of that small company and everyone having fun. No one will probably ever see this maybe I'll make a youtube video about it but hey if someone else is reading this thanks. Also if somehow someone is reading this that works at RoosterTeeth please don't take this at hate or take this as hey be a smaller company again, It's just me expressing myself and it also doesn't mean I will stop watching Roosterteeth just again me saying my thing

    Hi everyone,


    I've had another busy week with many other projects that I didn't get much time to work on sound editing for my film project.  I had to work a special effects video project for an event for a museum and I was getting ready for SacAnime by creating fanart for the RWBY crew to sign.  Hopefully, I will get to edit sound later this week for my short film.


    Otherwise, I have more drawings to share.

    I joined the community over 5 years ago, and yet, I never felt a part of it. I never wrote journals, I didn't comment on videos, I just sorta ghosted the company and community, but I want to change that starting today. I want to be more involved with the lovely people in the community, the incredible people at RT, and make friends in the process.


    I should probably introduce myself then. I'm Jordan, I'm 20, from Birmingham, UK, but now live in Cardiff, Wales. I love comics, PS4, archery, pop punk music, RT (obviously), Mr Robot. I'm sure there's more but I can't remember

    Hey Y’all, 


    I have not done a journal in months. I have not been actively watching roosterteeth as well. It has just been a weird time in my life. I came out as Bisexual, publicly, over the summer, I started anti-depressants prior to coming out, and I just moved into my apartment in Boston so start my sophomore year of college at Emerson. 


    I wanted to make this post before I start my school year because I may get back into journaling again. I wanted to know how y’all were doing and see if the community was dead on this website yet.

    hello RT community 


                    I have been a fan rooster teeth from 2005 and join the web site in 2013 but I never did anything with it. I been watching all of the content with out giving back but I feel that need to change. this feeling of need to give back hit me when I was watching the RT doc why we're here and I realize that rooster teeth gave me so much over the years. rooster teeth hook me back in 2005 when it pulled me out of my depression give me a reason to get up go to school and do it all over again the next day and I did just so I can watch a funny video online. they even gave me the passion to start my own YouTube channel called NorthEastGaming in a hoping chance that maybe I could work with Rooster teeth or even be the start of there northeast branch. that when I realize that rooster teeth would be nothing without there community and the best way to give back to the people that make up rooster teeth is to give back to the people they care about the most ',the community. I guess what I'm trying to say is I want to be a more productive member and add to what we have here.

    Why didn't I check out this site more before? I had no idea that the roosterteeth site had become essentially another social media site with an emphasis on videos. I have to say I'm genuinely impressed with the quality of the site, the videos, and the surprise element of ways to connect to other members of the Rooster Teeth community. Well done and well played, I officially like this site more than Youtube and I definitely plan to get a lot of my content straight from the source from now on!

    Hello,


    I am unsure if these get read, but I want to try and reach out more to this community. I love Achievement Hunter and Rooster Teeth and all that it stands for. The community is fantastic and the creators supportive. As a gamer and someone who works for a non-profit, it is nice to find ways to make helping the world better through entertainment. If anyone has any advice for how to get more active in the community, please feel free to let me know.

    This community is so amazing. Everyone here is so chill and love to share their love for RT. I've found a discord group called RT Alabama (because I am from Alabama) where theres tons of people who live in the same area as me that loves RT! I've found so many new people through this community, so thank you everyone at RT! I wish I could meet all my favs from RT because they're all so inspiring to me and their content is off-the-walls amazing.


    Also can I just take a moment to say the season finale of Camp Camp was freaking awesome. The writers of that show are comedic geniuses! This is my new favorite show and I've even got my parents into it.


    My mom and I watched The Ten (and Eleven) Little Roosters together and she thought both series were pretty hilarious. So you're welcome, RT, you've got a new fan who just so happens to be my mom. 

  • Community Feature Wishlist (Version 2)

    2 months ago

    BlackPenguin Guardian x8; Panel Lead

    It’s been a while since I’ve consolidated my thoughts on what I’d like to see in the new community site, so I figured I’d collect them all again in this journal. Some are new, some are previously mentioned suggestions. Also to whoever would be handling it, if there is ever a beta for the new site, I’d be more than happy to give it a spin.


    I also want to say, to whoever is working on the new site, we really appreciate your work and effort.  I know it ain't easy to freshen up a house this old and so lived-in.



    Feeds & Notifications

    Notification/Feed Customization

    Currently, there is too much overlap between notifications and feeds. I’d like the option of choosing what types of content appear in each, or at least the ability to make something appear in my feed without getting a notification for it. There are many things I’d like to see passively in my feed, without getting a notification. Similarly, there are also things I’d like to get a notification for but not see in my feed. I’d like to see a facebook approach to this area. Passive content in the feed, with the option for specific things in my notifications.


    Friends’ Likes

    A feed which shows posts and content that your friends or followed users have liked. It’s a great way to see what’s popular among your friends and the community as a whole. In the past there were many projects, artists, and events that I would not have even heard about if it wasn’t for this feature.


    Tag Filtering For Feeds

    The ability to filter out/in posts from the users you follow. Applied either to individual followed users as part of our follow settings, or to our followed feed as a whole. I think I’d prefer the latter.


    News Feed 

    The old site had a feature where staff could post their journals to a centralized news feed. Now any news posted on the site has to be done with journals, often by staff members many people don't know they should be watching. An official news feed would be great for bringing people back to the site by giving them a place to stay up to date on the latest from RT, rather than forcing them to visit twitter, Reddit, Facebook, etc.


    Revamp "Popular Content" Feed

    Not only would it be nice to see different types of content, but it would be cool to filter out staff posts and only see community content.


    Final Confirmation on "Dismiss All Notifications"

    When "see all notifications" and "dismiss all notifications" are so close, an extra “are you sure” would be nice.


    Notification Time Stamps, Proper Sorting

    I wish notifications had time stamps. Either an actual time & date or “minutes/hours ago”.

    Notifications also need to be sorted with most recent on top. Currently, there is no rhyme or reason to the order.


    Better Notification of Replies

    Unless replying to a parent comment, subsequent replies do not trigger notifications. Meaning, if person A comments on my journal and I reply to that comment, and Person A makes a second comment in reply to my reply, that comment doesn’t send a notification to me. Or, more clearly:


    -A Comment on My Journal (notification)

    -My Reply to Comment

    -Reply to My Reply (no notification)


    Sharing on RT

    Many times I see a friend’s journal and wish I could share it on RT. We need the ability to re-post journals within the RT site itself. Essentially the same thing as a retweet or reblog.



    Journals, Posts, & Profiles

    Save Draft Option For Journals

    Similar to Tumblr, a feature that lets you save a draft journal or post. I like to write up journals over a couple days, so I end up having to save word docs on my computer.


    Journal Previews

    The ability to preview what a journal will look like. Helpful in double checking layouts, image placements, etc. I know I would use it.


    More Text Options

    I wish we could use colors, underline, bullet points, and other text options in our journals. Especially the actual color black.


    Pinned Comments

    The ability for journal authors to select a comment to pin at the top of their comments section. Sometimes you have to add something to the journal after posting it, and would rather not edit it. Other times it would be nice to feature or spotlight a funny or relevant comment from your friends or followers.


    Auto-Post on Other Social Media

    The ability to make a post on RT, which auto-posts a link to it on other social media (twitter, facebook, etc.). It could take the form of checkboxes when submitting journals or images, with icons for various social media sites.


    Twitter Feed on Profile

    A small box next to a user's profile of their recent tweets (for a linked twitter account). Scrolling down can load older tweets.


    Post & Profile Details

    It'd be cool to see the precise date and time something was posted. Also views. Each person’s profile used to have a section that listed their total views for journals and photos. This was a great metric for seeing how much reach and engagement your content garnered. There was also the currently online indicator. When enabled, a profile would say “currently online”. It would also give a user's status. For example, in the corner it would say “currently browsing the forum” or “currently reading a journal” (or something similar to that).


    Mod History

    The ability to see who likes or +1s our posts. Either on the post itself, or on a separate page for all of our posts. Seeing as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and other popular sites let you see who likes your content, it'd be nice to see this feature return. In addition, a breakdown of the individual mods on posts would be cool to see. A similar example is Facebook, which shows how many thumbs, hearts, or emojis a post got. In RT’s case, for a +45 post, it could be a mouse-over list that shows “+20 cool, +30 ditto, -5 lame”.


    User Log

    This was an old feature that let you see a two-week log of all the public activity of a user, including their recent journals, photos, and forum posts. It was a great way to gauge the activity and engagement of your friends. The feature is similar to that of other forum and board-based sites, which allow you to see the history of a user. One example is Reddit, which allows you to see the full history of a user’s public posts.


    Stats & Milestones

    It was cool to be able to go to a page that showed my lifetime number of journals, mods, photos, and forum posts. There used to be a page where you could see this. You really got a sense of your history on the site, and how much you contributed. There were also global site stats as well.


    Milestones were also little awards that you got for participating on the site. Similar to Reddit's Trophy Case, it showed your achievements and history. I had a milestone for being one of the first 10,000 people to sign up on the site. There were also neat little awards that staff members could give you. The staff member would see your content, and choose to bestow upon you their award. Back in the day, everyone was on a mini-quest to get the founding fathers’ awards. You would try to post something cool on your profile or show a cool project you completed, in the hope they would see it and give you their award. The only award I ever got Gus’s, which was an icon of a whiskey bottle. I think I got it for my interaction with him at RTX 2011.


    Stream Embeds

    This would probably be an additional technical headache, but it'd be cool if users could embed their Twitch/YouTube streams on a profile tab. Profiles could have a "live" tab, or something. Such a feature could help users in establishing a home on RT. And if that's too much free rein, then perhaps streams could only come from urls/accounts linked to that RT profile, which can be approved by staff.


    Old Content Carries Over

    This goes without saying, but man I really hope all of our old content (journals, photos, profiles) carries over to the new site.



    Photos

    Collaboration on Albums

    The option to share upload privileges within individual photo albums. For both individual users and within groups. Owners of an album could invite users to collaborate. Useful for events and projects.


    Event Galleries

    There used to be photo galleries that users were allowed to contribute to. Moderation was probably a lot easier back then, but people were able to access public galleries for the various events RT was at and upload their own photos. There were galleries for RTX and other popular conventions in which RT had a presence. Since the RTX app has the feature of allowing users to upload photos, it’d be cool to see this type of feature return to the main site.



    Groups

    A New Groups Home Page

    Groups need some love. I would also like to see a map regional community groups, or events calendar. A better group search is also sorely needed.


    Group Admin Alerts

    I don’t really manage any groups nowadays but when I did, I would have to keep an eye on the forum to see if anyone created a new forum thread. I could follow threads to get alerts on new posts, but I could not get alerts when someone created a new forum thread in a group I managed. It would be great if a group admin could get alerts for new forum threads in their group, or for other activities as well.



    Forums, Threads, & Comments

    A New Forum "Front Page"

    On the forum landing page (which needs to be re-worked badly as well) there could be an additional section that pulls threads from every forum. The section would visually operate like a Reddit homepage; a sortable/filterable list of individual threads from the site's forums. Without hunting through each forum you could get an aerial view of the popular, controversial, and newest threads. Just a way to spotlight individual new threads, highlight what's hot in the community, and show people the threads that stay active over time across all forums.


    Sort Function on Comments

    I wish we had the option to sort the comments on posts. Newest, oldest, highest rated, etc.


    Differentiation on Parent/Child Comment Threads

    When scrolling through comments on journals, it’s hard to spot and differentiate conversations. A little line next to threads, similar to Reddit, would be cool.



    Videos and Content

    Personality/Game Sort Options

    I’ve seen a lot of people mention this, so I thought I’d include it. The ability to sort/filter videos based on the talent/personalities in it.


    And equally important (perhaps more important), sorting/filtering Let’s Plays based on the game being played. Both for title/franchise, and genre (puzzle, FPS, trivia, etc.). That’s a feature I know would get a lot of use.


    Individual Blogs For Each Series

    A blog section on each series page, where staff can put relevant news. Users could put it on watch, and get alerts for it. I suggest this for two main reasons.


    First, to give the relevant posts a consolidated home. For example, Jon Risinger has routine journals for On The Spot. If you didn't follow him, you would miss it. Also I don't watch On The Spot, so as someone who follows Jon on the site those journals are irrelevant to me. Another example would be Eric Vespe. He write articles for The Know, but they don’t get posted anywhere other than on his profile.


    Second, decluttering staff and talent profiles. I follow staff on this site because they’re interesting and funny. Not for commercial promotion of the various shows and videos (even though I do consume them). This suggestion also kind of plays into the sentiment of staff using the site more, outside of promotional purposes.


    With Series Blogs the people who need that information would have a landing page, and the people who don't want that information from the personality get less clutter in their feed.



    Miscellaneous Features

    More Awareness of When Notifications are Disabled

    Sometimes notifications are disabled. When that happens, it’s usually signaled by a small graphic near the notifications tab. But that goes away so quick, and is very easy to miss (especially on mobile). When this happens, I suggest something like a persistent yellow square with “!” in the middle where the notification number would be. Clicking or mousing on that could then bring up the message. This system could also be used when there are important site-wide alerts.


    Service Status Page

    Just like the XBL Service Status page, it’d be cool if there was a go-to place to see if RT is currently experiencing any disruptions in its various services or functions.


    Community Perks for FIRST

    The reason I originally became a FIRST member (back when it called sponsorship), was for the community site perks. We got stuff like custom text colors, access to profile stats, and more. Nowadays we get a little star next to our name (which is still cool), but it used to mean more to your site presence. It was a badge of honor. It signified your dedication to the community. And it gave you incentive to engage and use the features. I’d like to see a return of that. Features and functions on the site that are unlocked for FIRST members that they can use in their interactions on the site.


    Better Staff Follow Functionality

    Currently, if I want to find and follow a staff member I have to:


    1. Go to one of two specific pages (cast or staff, which are hard to find)

    2. Scroll through the cumbersome list

    3. Click each profile individually

    4. Click follow on their profile


    Seeing as RT employs hundreds of people, it’s really hard to follow all of them this way. I think the process could be easier. Perhaps the list could have checkboxes next to each one, and a “follow all” function (a feature that would be cool for user searches too).


    Furthermore, while I’m at it, it’d be real neat if the staff page listed people by the department/show they work in/on. Like for instance, if someone wanted to follow people involved only in live action (crew, actors), animation (animators, writers), achievement hunter (talent, editors), or even corporate/marketing.


    Edit Bug

    Also please fix the edit bug. I wish I could edit an old journal without it notifying everyone.


    Bug/Improvement Submission Area

    We need a place where users can submit issues. Preferably with a way for mods and admins to review them and either act on them ourselves or escalate them to developer level.


    Mobile App

    A mobile app for the community. This would be the bee’s knees. Screw it, let’s have “stories” too. Everyone is doing stories now. They work. I think that could bring a lot of people back. Especially when paired with a mobile app.

    I got to go see Blood Fest tonight and I absolutely loved it! The script was original and funny with lots of fun Easter eggs. I think one of my favorite things about all of Rooster Teeths productions is that it looks like everyone involved has fun with the projects which just makes it that much more fun for the audience.  (I definitely went wearing my RT t-shirt and my RT blanket.)

  • what a newbie

    2 months ago

       I discovered Rooster Teeth a LONG time ago, but never bothered to watch their content. This summer, I met a boy who is obsessed with Rooster Teeth; and he got me interested as well by showing me a ton of RTAAs. I had realized that the youtube channel he was showing me was the exact same one I skipped over years ago. Let's just say the rest of my summer consisted of lots of sleepless nights watching everything possible on the RT channel.


       To be quite honest, my favorite thing on this website and the RT channel would be the podcast. This summer, I started walking 10 miles a day to get more physically fit; but also because I found this to be fun and it gave me a chance to explore my surroundings. Every time I started my walk, I pulled up an RT Podcast and listened to it...the entire walk. My walks would be very long, lasting up to 2 or 3 hours and sometimes even 4 hours if I walked more than 10 miles. All those hours were spent not only walking, but listening to the podcast. I would go through, at the most, 3 podcasts during my walk. It entertained me and made my walk more interesting. I had a few laughs, and even learned some new things from listening to the podcast. My absolute favorite podcasts are the ones that Gus is on, which is the majority, lol. But with Gus on the podcast, it feels well led and the majority of the new stuff I've learned has come from him. Also, Gus is just one of my favorites from Rooster Teeth. :) 


       Besides the podcast, I have fell in love with the shows RT has produced. My all time favorite, Camp Camp. I could watch that show on repeat if I had to; it's that entertaining. I also like X Ray and Vav, but I can't get into it as much as Camp Camp. I finished seasons 1-3 in about 2 days and let me tell you, it was an emotional rollercoaster. I felt so connected with the characters and they're literally cartoon and fictional. But that just shows you how well written this series is. My favorite character would have to be David or Space Kid. Not only am I fascinated by the character design and script of each episode, but I'm also loving the way each voice actor uses their talent. Each character is phenomenally voiced by such talented human beings, it's almost hard to put into words. The voice actors have done such amazing jobs unleashing the personality of their characters just by using their voice. One person in particular, Miles Luna, stood out to me. His character, David, is a cheery, peppy camp counselor that loves the outdoors. Most might find this character to be hard to voice, but Miles nails it every time. I'd say both him and Gus are my top favorite people on the Rooster Teeth crew. 


       Rooster Teeth is one of my all time favorite youtube channels now. Not only because they're funny and entertaining, but also because their content is so original and there's so much of it. When you finish one series, RT always has another ready and available to watch. It's almost as if their content is never ending. I could watch it all day long and still have more to watch the next day. That's why they're such an amazing group of people. You can tell they work hard on what they do, and their channel deserves so much more recognition than it has right now. I may only be a newbie to this, but I can tell that this is a fandom I won't ever leave!
