      Taking a breather.

      I think I'm gonna take a little bit of a break from here.

      I've got just over a month until my 10th anniversary on this site, I'm looking for ways to celebrate that, and I'd prefer not to become super frustrated with the web dev team. I understand the previous site was unsustainable, but that's no excuse to push V2 on us until it's ready. Rushed, and sloppy, and I cannot understand why a decision like that was made.

      I'm sick of coming home from work to 50+ alerts because they can't consolidate.

      "It's not perfect, and it won't be perfect for awhile."

      Thanks for that, Barb. So if it's so far from perfect, clearly you had to push it on us before you fixed it, instead of using your Sponsor beta for weeks, or months, or however fucking long it takes, to crush bugs and improve features.

      I've been a Sponsor for all but five months of my time here, and I'm not sure if I'm going to continue my Sponsorship past my tenth anniversary. RoosterTeeth has grown an insane amount since I joined in 2005, and I just don't see Sponsors having the meaningful impact that they once had. I have never used the main perk, early screenings, anyway.

      Plus, my fiance, whom I met on here, is moving in with me, beginning his cross country drive in 30 hours, so I need to focus on that as well.

      Peace, guys. I'll be back in time for my tenth anniversary.

      Enough about V2 for now.

      1 week ago

      I've submitted my V2 feedback for the day, and I do honestly believe, that eventually, everything will get worked out.

      So now I'll touch on a positive note.

      Folks, my tenth anniversary on this site is coming up on September 7th.

      The RoosterTeeth Community holds a very, very special place in my heart, because it's where I met my fiance, Brady, who will be arriving to move in with me in seven days.

      So I need suggestions on how to properly celebrating being a member of this community for 3650 days, far more than any other online community, by far.

      Any suggestions, really. Crazy, wacky, heartfelt, sentimental. Anything and everything folks. Whether I've known you for five years or five weeks, I want to hear it.

      RoosterTeeth V2, Day 2

      1 week ago

      I get transition times and databases catching up. But here are my currently experienced problems. I'll edit as time goes on as I discover more or they solve themselves.

      > Unable to delete comments on personal pages and blogs.

      > Unable to edit comments.

      > Making a post bumps you back to page 1 of your chosen topic.

      > Unable to reposition / crop the profile cover photo.

      > The Sponsor button on the top bar seems to do nothing than refresh whatever page you are on.

      >Still no subforums in the gaming section for the current gen consoles that are NOW TWO YEARS OLD.

      So let the databases and servers have their catching up time. Someone come get me when we are allowed to bitch and point out problems.

    • milesprower Growing Pains

      Well then...

      1 week ago

      Yeah, I checked out v2 a few times over the last three weeks.

      So yeah, it's not perfect, but seriously:

      Change.

      The.

      Background.

      This white on white is not going to work.

      Change it or give us the ability to customize. Good lord it's horrid.

      Farewell, Old Site

      1 week ago

      Well, overnight, we say farewell to a site that's been with us for a good number of years.

      I remember the last time things changed. The drama and exodus was glorious. Yet here we are still here.

      Yeah, we're getting some bad with some good, and hopefully they plaster some more good over all that bad. Namely that white on white background that will definitely make me keep the page minimized to prevent screen burn.

      But I'm not going anywhere. I've got my 10th anniversary coming up, and I'd like to plan something awesome for it.

      Oh wait, it's not your IP, and I'm sure Playtronic loves and welcomes this kind of exposure.

      I love it when Brony content creators branch out to other areas with just as much talent and wit.

      If the game is half this funny, I'll be in stitches.

      I prefer my weather, and my revenge, served cold.

      I love how this image is plastered over social media every summer.

      To this, I say:

      Bull. Fucking. Shit.

      It has ALWAYS been easier to warm up than it is to cool down.

      Even your body's natural temperature regulation is easier. If it's too cold, you shiver, and you can usually throw on a blanket to help. Not really necessary to throw on the heater every night.

      But if it's hot? You start to perspire, you start to smell, and your clothes become a soppy, sweaty mess, and I'll be damned if I'm not throwing on the AC every damned morning before bed.

      So yeah, bring on the cold. Summer was only fun when it gave you 2 months off of school.

      Well, That Sucks

      Well, I plugged my Wii back in, and popped F-Zero GX in for the first time in years, and was met with the horrifying notification that the save data had become corrupted and irretrievable.

      So beating all the cups on Master Difficulty, one of my proudest achievements in gaming, now rests squarely on my word, with no medals or indicators to back it up.

      And I seriously doubt I have the ability, or the willpower, to do so again. F-Zero GX was noted for it's unforgiving difficulty.

      This came out about a day ago....my body is ready for this man. Without giving too much away, looks like we could be seeing the Royal Knights faction again. All I know is, dat animation looks fucking gorgeous.

        So far as information goes, it is still a sequel to 02 but I think the general consensus is that this is hugely focused on the 01 team, TK and Kari included.

        The Royal Knights to explain things are basically a faction of 13 extremely powerful mega-level digimon that are usually in the lore of Digimon the "Digital Security" and serve under the Digimon God Yggdrasil. They are the final measure against anything that would normally cause destruction to the Digital world. The Royal Knights have pretty much appeared in one way or another in every single season. This faction includes:

        Imperialdramon Paladin Mode (though not technically regarded as a Royal Knight he is the founder of the faction)
        Alphamon (the black knight seen in the trailer and the official leader of the group)
        Omnimon (second-in command and leader when Alphamon is not around)
        Gallantmon
        Kentaurosmon
        Leopardmon
        UlforceVeedramon
        Magnamon (though an armor digimon, his power ranks in the mega level and yes that means all three of Veemon's megas are knights in one way or another).
        Dynasmon
        RhodoKnightmon
        Craniumon
        Examon (the Dragon Emperor)
        Gandookomon
        Jesmon

        The Royal Knights are more prominent in Seasons 4 and 5 along with the movie Digital Monster X.

        Also some new information that came with this new series is that unfortunately it is being delayed until December. And not only that it won't be a 50-episode series like many of us thought, it's only going to be a 6-part movie series.

        And still no hint, whatsoever, of Zero-Two.

        I was always hoping they'd retcon that ending, but at this point, I can't help but wonder if they're going to retcon Season 2 ENTIRELY.

        I didn't watch anything past Season 3, so I know nothing of the Royal Knights. I'm just hoping it's dubbed as well.

        But I doubt we'll be getting an August release over here, it isn't even out in Japan yet.

      Do you remember that fix to make Youtube work better in Firefox? It was something where we had to edit the about:config files.

        Lol. With Brady here, and the MCC, do you really think my concern is going to be on a Digimon game? Especially since I may or may not have the money?

        My priority right now is Brady's engagement ring, then the MCC.

        It's the same release date as MCC and The Crew. So be the only one at your Gamestop to pick it up at midnight!

        Digimon has never been considerably strong in the game department. I've never gotten a Digimon game. The anime is much more powerful.
