Alternative title: Getting back our community
Hey everybody, I know that some of you will see this and not say anything but that's ok. I'm here to tell you why you should say something, even if it's not to me in particular.
So, we all know that the site has been updated, and with the updates some changes have occurred. Some awesome, like questions and chat coming back, and some terrible, like some search functionality busting. We all know that the web devs are working their butts off. We know that the RT staff knows that, and like @niriall said in her journal here, the only way we can help them out and make this site as amazing as we know it all to be is to help do it ourselves. We can build back that community that we all know to exist and love. We can prove to ourselves that there is a reason why we continue to come here day in and day out. That's why we still have people joining the site from Youtube & Tumblr & picking us up when they make their first RvB or RWBY purchase at their local brick and mortar store.
Part of what we need to do is just be on here. Nothing will be here if we're not here. And you all love RT just like I do. So make it happen. Do like Niriall suggests and make a point of being here, make a point of saying hi, making content, posting on the forums. And if you have a suggestion about how to make the site content cooler? Hit up @Becca she wants your suggestions tell her here. Tell her via however she asks, she is one of your go to people here people.
Also, get in touch with folk, make friends on the site, don't be afraid to ask questions or message someone or comment on something. Check the forums. Check out the new users, be a friend to them and help direct them to the forum FAQ or the Adopt a Newbie group if they want some answers. Remember, we were all noobs here once.
Lastly, we have some amazing community groups here and on Twitter, Facebook that work to get online and local events happening. Awesome on its own is back, we have Rooster Speak & the Roosterteeth is fashionable group. Tons of places await those who seek it out. You just need to go for it. If you need help figuring it out there are tons of amazing people here who are more than willing to be your go to person. I'll be your go to person. Just show RT that you want this site to be more than just a glorified youtube page.
I know you can.
Because here we're more than just a community, we're a family.
All the hugs to all of you.
