    • RTX Community Corner and Community Panels are back, baby!

      5 months ago

      kriss Community Manager

      Hello community!


      Very hyped to let you know that RTX Community Panel and Community Corner Submissions are now live. Sign ups will close March 29, 2019 at 11:59pm CT.


      Before you apply for either or both, we would like to offer panel best practices and a short Community Corner FAQ in case you may have any questions.


      Community Panel Best Practices:


       towerPresentations are very helpful in helping you keep track of your discussions, but do not read them word for word. Add your personality and additional thoughts to those bullet points! Your presentation serves as your guideline, not as the panel itself.  


       towerKeep the number of panelists around 4-5 people. You only get one hour to cover the topic(s) you want to address, offer your own expertise and insight, and engage your audience with a Q&A.


       towerIdeal panelists will have solid knowledge of the topics they’re covering, have good chemistry with one another, and are comfortable speaking in front of a crowd.


       towerModerators are highly recommended. They keep the conversation going, on topic, and are cognizant of how much time a question or a topic is taking up.


       towerRemember that you are speaking to an audience that may be curious about who you are and what you’re about, so be as open and welcoming as possible. People in the crowd may not understand inside jokes or specific references like “that one thing that happened a year ago”.


       towerKeep the interactions with the audience to a minimum or until the Q&A. Unless you specifically set up your panel to accept questions during the panel, you and your panelists should be driving the conversations.


       towerLast but certainly not least, when you apply to submit your panel idea, please take your time. Give us a general but solid understanding of what you are bringing to RTX and to the community.


      SUBMIT YOUR PANEL IDEAS HERE -- Application will close March 29, 2019 at 11:59pm CT.


      What is Community Corner?


      If you are of a creative mind, we would love to showcase your work at RTX! Community Corner is a piece of the expo floor that is dedicated to the talented artists in the RT Community. Chosen artists will get one hour to show off their art and network with fellow community members.


      What artwork is accepted?


      All types! The more variety, the better. We have accepted cosplayers, digital and illustration artists, those who are masters of various crafts including airbrushed clothing, storytellers, and much more.


      How does set up work?


      You are responsible for your own space. You will be given extra time outside of your one hour to accommodate for set up and tear down.


      Will Guardians assist with crowd control/line management?


      Yes! A Guardian will be present to assist with crowd control.


      Want to apply for Community Corner?


      SUBMIT A COMMUNITY CORNER APPLICATION HERE -- Application will close March 29, 2019 at 11:59pm CT.


      For a better idea of what to expect from the space itself, here are a couple of photos from the community corner last year featuring @gammakoruchador and @_daks_!

      We look forward to all of the panel and community corner submissions! RTX HYYYYYYYYPE!

      We in the RT Admin Team have always supported civil debate on the site. Recently we've seen less than civil conversations and debates around here, and we would like and we ask you to keep the site ToU in mind when you are posting. If you believe a post violates the ToU, you can flag it for moderation attention by clicking the little flag at the bottom right of the post. However, posts not violating the ToU should not be flagged and repeated flagging of posts simply because they do not agree with your views is not acceptable behavior. For more information on what constitutes a flagable post see this thread and feel free to contact an admin through direct messaging for clarification of any points.

    • RWBY Rewind Season 2 has wrapped!

      6 months ago

      kriss Community Manager

      Yesterday, we recorded the last episode of RWBY: Rewind Season 2. I was very fortunate to be cast as one of the three hosts of the show, talking about RWBY Volume 6 alongside Chad James and Ellie Main. 


      When I was first brought on board to RT, I never anticipated being part of RWBYRW. We did a short playtest prior to me being officially brought on, and I had an absolute blast. I was REALLY nervous, but Chad and Broadcast made everything flow naturally and before I knew it, we were laughing and making jokes just as you see on the show proper. I even asked Barbara for advice, and the ever loving angel that she is offered helpful insight and much support for me. 


      I had done more than a few vlogs in my day, but I never really got to see myself on camera like this and work with an actual Broadcast team. When I got the news that I would be joining Chad and Ellie, I was both ecstatic and absolutely horrified. More than anything, I wanted to do right by the community. I remember back when RWBY was first announced, and how much hype there was around it. I've kept the show close to my heart since then. I knew how much love and passion people had for the show, and I didn't want to let anyone down. 


      We did our first episode on October 29th. Unbeknownst to many, my family was in town for my birthday. I was able to bring them and my partner backstage to watch my first ever RT recording of a live show. They told me I did very well and that they were proud of me. My dad said he remembered back when I was in kindergarten and whenever he picked me up from school, I was always alone and in my own corner. He gave me a big hug and said "now look at you! You're talking to A LOT of people! You've grown up so much!" I'll never forget that. 


      For the past 13 weeks, we discussed many topics and  answered as many questions as we could, and above all, just had fun experiencing the show with the community. That was the most important part to me. To be able to enjoy RWBY with everyone in this way was beyond amazing for me, and I am so happy that that we all could analyze, cheer, laugh, and cry with each other as the volume wrapped. 


      Thank you to everyone who submitted questions, joined us in chat, and engaged us with fun and healthy conversation. Your hype posts, happy comments, and overall love for both RWBY and RWBYRW were always highlights of my week. 


      You all made RWBYRW fantastic for me. Thank you <3  

    • gen:LOCK reaction vid guidelines

      6 months ago

      kriss Community Manager

      Hello community!


      We wanted to let you all know about the guidelines we have in place for reaction videos involving gen:LOCK. If this is your first time delving into reaction videos, or if you need a refresher, please read our Content Usage Guidelines and become familiar with the policies and processes defined there.


      That said, we are happy to inform you all that the guidelines will not be changing. However, with all the hype we have seen in the community, we do anticipate a high volume of Fan Projects being created. We do ask for your patience as we run Content ID when your videos are uploaded as response time to disputes could take a few weeks to complete. We will do our best to comb through all the videos that come our way. This has been said many times, but we are incredibly lucky and grateful to have such a passionate and supportive community.


      To celebrate the premiere of this awesome show, we will be hosting a launch party today, January 26th, at 11am CT right here on roosterteeth.com/live. Please join us in chat, hang out, have a good time, and the let the good times roll!

    • Appreciation for Future Community Managers

      7 months ago

      kriss Community Manager

      CMAD or Community Manager Appreciation Day was yesterday. I was very overwhelmed by all the positive and heartfelt messages community members sent my, Chelsea, Kdin, Steffie, and Cricket's way. I started thinking about how I could show appreciation for community managers who have affected my life, and one lesson I've learned from all of them was to pass along the knowledge and advice learned over the years. 


      Writing a disclaimer now that this is my own personal journey. Your own journey may greatly differ from mine, so please don't use my life as the be all and end all for yourself. 


      When I was much younger, there was a lot of emphasis placed on what I wanted to do after graduation. What did I want as a career? Where would I be in 5 years (I always hated that damn question)? What did I want to do with my life? Those are a few of the questions that were constantly in my face as I trudged through college. I wasn't a very academic person... To put some of this into perspective, I graduated high school in 2002. I started as an education major and lasted maybe a semester. I wasn't passionate about it, and I didn't see myself as a teacher, so I switched majors and kept my degree pretty general. I ended up graduating in 2007 with a Liberal Arts Degree focusing on English. That's a fancy way of saying I wrote a lot and I understood how to communicate with people. 


      But I still didn't know what I wanted to do for a living. Nothing I did really made me feel like I had a purpose. I had a few jobs as a admin assistant and a project coordinator, but I didn't feel fulfilled or that I was doing anything with my life. Then I thought about writing for video games. Did some research, tried to figure out the best ways to break into an industry I very much loved, but didn't know much about from the inside world. A friend of mine introduced me to Randy Greenback, an incredibly awesome game dev with 20 years of experience under his belt. He was very open to answering my questions and providing really good advice that I take to heart even today. 


      He told me that I already made the first big step, and that was asking the questions and wanting to learn. He also said networking with a bunch of folks in the industry was a great way to gather insight as far as what field I wanted to be in. Something really important to note right here is that I was pretty active in the RT community and I was figuring out ways to build a community presence in Vegas. After doing a little more research about the industry, I found out that community management was a thing. Classes for that didn't exist when I was in school. Social media was just starting to take off, and I had no real teacher or mentor to help me learn all of this stuff. So I thought about the best ways to learn and it pretty much came down to just doing it. 


      I created the RT Vegas Community Group, learned how to use Twitter, FB, Vine, and Twitch. I taught myself how to properly engage people, what worked, what didn't work and I studied how people interacted with each other and the respective outcomes. Before I knew it, I began creating relationships with people online and who I would meet years later in person. I also began volunteering my time for community/social projects.  I became a moderator for RT, expanded the RT Vegas group, acted as a community manager for a small game dev group, and studied ways to grow my Twitch channel. It became my experience. All of these avenues provided different types of lessons learned, best practices, and ways to engage people. One thing that made me fully believe I wanted to be a CM was even though I got to see the best and worst of people, and sometimes the worst can get pretty bad, I still wanted to be in a position where I could help people for the better. Even on my worst days, what got me through is I could be a positive influence in someone's day and that gave me meaning and purpose.


      Now, I'm a community manager. It took me 6-7 years to achieve that.  And that's the point to my post. I didn't exactly follow a formula. I know many people want to learn how to become a CM, so I hope that this post gave some insight to your own journey. I don't know how much of this you can take with you, but know that I am open to helping and know that I am cheering for you. Whenever I meet someone who is interested in becoming a CM, my goal for the conversation is to eventually say "happy community appreciation day" to that person one day. That right there is one of the most fulfilling experiences I can personally have. I hope that this has been helpful. Go out and do great things future CMs!

      • buckeyedon Crackpottist

        6 years ago

        I was assaulted on a regular basis, especially during Middle School/Jr High, and into my freshman year. About my junior year it stopped (maybe because I actually could hold my own in a scuffle at that time). I never wanted to take my own life during those times, just the ability to defend my honor.

        There were many times I ended up in the principals office for 'fighting'. I never once ever claimed I fought back in self defense. To me, that was the coward's way out.

        So, I took my lumps from the guy that tried to beat me up, from the principal, and from my mom.

        I'm quite lucky in that I never really have been harassed to the point a lot of these people are. I never felt depressed or wanted to take my own life. I don't understand bullies. And bullying now is nothing like it was when I was growing up. It's just so severe these days. Have people always been this violent or did we get just get there somehow?

      • buckeyedon Crackpottist

        6 years ago

        *doh!*

        Yep, I remember seeing that...

        I just don't understand the bullying. I grew up being bullied, but I assumed that it was because I was perceived as being an easy target (youngest and shortest, among all students regardless of gender...). And not being allowed to fight back (mom had a 'no fighting' policy) life was less than pleasant for most of my school years.

        While I can relate to being bullied as an easy target, what the fuck is wrong with people who bully girls in general, but also who are geeks?

        I... can't imagine what it is like. But that video does help illustrate what it may be like.
