I’m really excited to be making this post. For the past few months, as you know, I’ve been working on a plan for working on the Rooster Teeth community platform. I’ve hinted that development has started and want to use this opportunity to tell you that yes, development is fully underway, and moreover, we have a whole team working on it!
This team is (mostly) new to Rooster Teeth so I really need your help here. In order to make a great product, we need to hear from you about the great things about the Rooster Teeth community. If you can spare a minute, write a comment up about your favorite moment or two in the RT communities, whether here on the site, on another site, or in real life.
And now, I’d like to introduce you to the team who is building this for you, please give them a warm welcome:
Janet Wang - @janetwang
Hi! I'm a User Experience Product Designer for Roosterteeth, based in Los Angeles, California. I am an astrology enthusiast, fan of outdoor walks, and collage hobbyist (magazines + exacto knives are my jam). I'm looking forward to working with our team to build an awesome community experience for you all =D

Jimmy Chen - @jimjimjimmy
Hello, my name is Jimmy, people call me Gandalf because I am old and look good in gray.

My favorite game is tic tac toe and beer pong.
Fun fact: I was tested with a IQ score of 45 when I was in 3rd grade. My IQ never improved.
