      I haven't posted here in forever and I feel rather awful about it. 

      The big problem for me when it comes to posting on the site/reading journals/chatting with other fans/commenting on videos via the RT site is that I am mostly a mobil user. I have a tablet and tend to watch all my RT content via the RT First app and I have not yet figured out a way to even just comment on videos via the app.

      Like I mean I LOVE the app, it works really well in all other regards, but I do wish it focused more on the social aspects of the RT Community. 


      That being said I am going to be doing my best to be more active again (though I rave about RT on Twitter all the time and if you wanna get a quick reply that might still be the best place^^)


      But please RT: a commenting feature on the App? Please?

    • PROJECT FOR AWESOME 2015

      3 years ago

      Merksmirs RTGermany Admin

      Hello everyone!

      It's that time of the year again, the Project for Awesome 2015 has officially started 20 minutes ago!
      That means that I'll slowly go insane within the next 48 hours, trying to stay awake the whole time to raise money for charity!
      In order to support me in this quest please go toprojectforawesome.com/donate and either get an amazing perk, or just donate and don't get anything. (I will gladly take any unwanted perks off of anyone :P)
      It's up to you!
      Please support this, all the money raised in the P4A goes to charities the Nerdfighter community chooses by voting at Projectforawesome.com and they are all great causes! Or to be more precise, the money raised on the first day goes to goes to Save The Children and the UNHCR and the money raised on the second day goes to the charities that Nerdfighters have voted on

      You are welcome to join in the fun, there is a 48 hour stram at projectforawesome.com/live and literally anyone is welcome to vote on videos on the site!

      I have no words. There is nothing I can say about Monty that hasn't been said - better even, or by people who know him much better than I do - since I have never even had a chance to meet him.
      All I can really say is that he has inspired me. I strive to one day be half as amazing as Monty at what I do.
      You will be missed Monty. You're incredible.

    • Project For Awesome 2014

      4 years ago

      So I know that people on here don't tend to care an awful lot about YouTube and vloggers - even if that's the route which led me to Rooster Teeth, but I still need to talk about the P4A 2014 a bit.
      So I'm a massive Nerdfighter - the Nerdfighters being the community around Hank and John Green aka the Vlogbrothers - and the Vlogbrothers in December 2007 decided that they would try to take over YouTube with charity videos for one day by many people making a bunch of videos and then commenting like mad on all of them until the most discused page was just charity videos. They called this operation the Project for Awesome and they succeeded! So they did it again the year after that and then the year after that until finally in 2010 they started incorporating a donation aspect into the p4a... which incidentally is the year I joined.
      The first time the P4A raised money they raised 9000 Dollars... which may not seem like a lot, but back then it really was, considering the size of their community.
      The P4A has evolved a lot since then and it is now a 48 hour livestream in which people watch a load of different videos about charity, voting for the ones they think deserve to get the money that is raised on projectforaweome.com and commenting on the videos like crazy (cause every comment on a project for awesome video is a penny for charity) along with an indiegogo campaign that this year has raised 1.170.000 dollars so far - and the indiegogo will even last for two more days!
      There are hours upon hours worth of p4a videos posted to the official site each year - this year there were almost 30 hours worth of videos! And so many 'Big Name YouTubers' help out with Perks and make videos and appearances in the livestream... it's kinda all of YouTube coming together for one thing

      To me personally the P4A is mostly a 48 hour fun livestream in which I sleep 4 hours tops (preferably I don't sleep at all), buy fun perks for a good cause and annoy the hell out of everyone I know to donate.
      It's my favorite part of the year and it just makes me so proud to be a part of the YouTube Community... even if these days it's super spread out.

      So if after RTextralife you still have any money to give I encourage you to take a look at www.indiegogo.com/projects/project-for-awesome-... and maybe buy a perk if you're interested (there's even a signed VGHS poster)
      Also it'd be super cool if you'd consider maybe checking out the Vlogbrothers videos and maybe come hang out in the livestream yourself next year^^

        It's always tricky cause my everyday language is German so I gotta switch between languages on my keyboard a lot and when I forget what I type just comes out as this weird ass mix xD

        That was hardly English at all. I meant to say thanks - I worked most of today but I'm getting on it now. That should be a bit more comprehensible :D
