    • RT Vegas peeps! July's RT Community Day, we are going hunting-

      2 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      For Pokemon!


      That's right, guys. I threw a poll up on the RT_LasVegas Twitter and it's looking like Saturday evening will work better for people. I am proposing that we meet up at Sunset Park around 7PM. It shouldn't be as hot during that time and if people are open to it, we can go out to dinner afterward. What I would like for you guys to do/bring:


      1) Download the PokemonGo app if you haven't already.

      2) Be aware of your data plan. I don't want people going over on their data, so please be careful with that.

      3) If you have a hotspot available, I will totally buy you dessert or something

      4) PLEASE BRING WATER. Guys, it's still super hot out, so I want you all to stay hydrated.

      5) Wear proper shoes. PokemonGo makes you walk around, so prepare for that. My suggestion would be to stay away from open toed shoes and slippers.

      6) Dogs are welcome, but please keep in mind that there is a possibility that we will be eating dinner after.


      So that's the plan for this weekend!


      Date: July 16, 2016

      Location: Sunset Park (by large pond in the middle of the park)

      Time: 7PM


      See you this weekend!

    • The Pokemon Go Bandwagon

      2 years ago

      I'm going to Oreo cookie this.


      The good: This game encourages you to do two things: go outside and be social. And it's working. I live in a city where social life is very clicky and if you don't fit into certain types of lifestyles, then you're not going to have much of a good time. However, I spent the last couple days actually playing PokemonGo as it is meant to be played, and I had small conversations with people I've never met. We were all having a good time at a park and I even ran into a former coworker. She was walking around another park with her son. It was quite cute. I am fascinated how much this game has affected the lives of its players for the better in such a short amount of time.


      I tend to use humor to mask my true feelings. I throw around a lot of jokes about this game in particular but this is really a strange phenomenon to me. And while I was still being cautious, I didn't feel threatened by people around me. Last night, I forgot I was in my city. A city that taught me to never trust people. A guy walked up to me and asked me about a gym and I didn't automatically believe he would hurt me. This is definitely a game where you need to use caution, but at the same time, I'm amazed at the camaraderie and fun innocence I'm seeing. My mind is blown. Bless this game.


      The bad: On the real with PokemonGo, it's a fun game. It's a game that encourages you to be social, but at the same time you HAVE to use caution when you run into other people. The reality is that just because someone plays the same game as you, it doesn't mean that they are good people. This is no different than going about your everyday life. It's fine to meet people, but don't tell them where you live, where you're going to be (especially if it's a location out in the middle of nowhere) or where you plan to be every day and night. Use caution. People are already exploiting the hype around this game and police stations are issuing warnings to people to be careful when interacting with strangers. People are leaving lure modules in Pokestops and robbing them when they show up. Yeah, that's the kind of fucked up world we live in. We can't even truly enjoy a game that focuses on social interaction and going outside to be healthy.


      Enjoy the game. Just be careful. Please.


      Back to the good. Here are some moments I've had/created while playing Pokemon Go.

    • Convention Prep 101

      2 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      RTX hype/madness is upon us. There are many journals about this very topic, but I know we all don't follow the same people,so here goes Kriss' list of guidance, advice, dos and don'ts.


      General Prep:

      • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. You WILL be walking and sitting and walking and sitting for long periods of time. Be comfortable.
      • Eat food. Drink water. Don't think you can get away without those things. It's 90 degrees in Austin and there's humidity. Protect your body.
      • Be aware of your personal hygiene. Take two showers if you need to. Bring travel sized deodorant or wipes. You're going to sweat and it is not pleasant when thousands of people smell like onions working out in a gym. Use hand sanitizer frequently.
      • Respect the rules of the convention. Those policies and rules are in place for a reason. They aren't there to annoy you or give you a hard time. They are there to protect you, the special guests, the volunteers, the convention staff and all of the attendees.
      • Respect each other. Express empathy. Not everyone is a social butterfly. Some people are open to hugs and friendly touching like a slap on the back or a high five. Some people are not. This might actually be a first convention for a lot of people. Respect boundaries and understand that not everyone may be as open to social interaction as you.
      • Accept the fact that YOU WILL NOT SEE EVERYTHING YOU WANT. Panels and mini events are set up for crowd control. So it's common that popular panels occur at the same time. Pick your priorities and make a plan B, but do not expect to see 100% of everything you want.

      RTX Prep:

      • The RTX Event schedule is posted on http://rtxevent.com/ Figure out what you want to do and see. Don't wait until the very last minute to prep
      • Use the RTX Event App. If you have a smartphone, download this now. Not only will you be able to set your own calendar and reminders, but the app updates during the weekend. Paper programs cannot do that.

      Clr1LIcVAAAmOqI.jpg

      Clr1LJGVYAE4TcN.jpg

      • If you happen to grab a chance of asking a question at a panel, be respectful. Yes, special guests (especially ones you see in front of a camera) are super silly and entertaining, but remember that they are still people. Don't ask them awkward questions, don't ask them for a job or how to get one... ask questions that bring discussion to the table. Practice your question in your head and ask it. Also be respectful of time. Special guests want to answer as many questions as possible, so don't be that person that takes up 10 minutes.
      • Straight from @Miles tweet, there are two RWBY panels. They will be identical. Please do not attend both. They have set it up this way to be fair for people who will miss the first one. Be kind to fellow attendees. Allow them the chance to experience the second panel if you've attended the first one.
      • Yes, special guests have a tendency to walk around and yes, they are open to signing things and taking pictures; however, if they or their PA states that they need to leave for whatever reason (needing to attend a panel, another signing, etc...) please respect that. The convention schedule does not stop, so neither can they.
      • Guardians are here for a reason. Whether it be managing a line, taking care of a panel room, guarding an escalator or door, helping a special guest keep their schedule, Guardians have vital roles that affect the flow of the convention. We are here to help you, guide you and ensure that you have a good time at the convention. If a Guardian asks you to not cut a line, move away from an area to prevent a fire hazard, not allow you to walk into a panel room after doors close, it's for a reason. Just like general policies and rules of the convention center, Guardians have a set of rules they follow and request that the public adhere to them as well.


      That's all that I can think of right now. There's a lot of RTX prep still, and it's exhausting and tiring, but when I get to Austin, and I get to see you all, I know I will feel rejuvenated. And it is at that moment when I am reminded that this was all worth it. I volunteer for RTX because of you guys. It makes me very happy to be a part of this community. See you next week!


      PS: If you see me, feel free to say hi. Ignore my resting bitch face.

    • Holy crap, am I an adult!? I THINK I AM NOW

      2 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      Following up with my 600 Subs.. WUT? journal, I am very happy to say that I made adult purchases toward GeekyFriedRice Guild! I'm not sure what this will entail in the future, but if something makes me happy, I should keep going for it, right? Nothing is stopping me from moving forward, so why not see where this adventure goes?


      Pleased to announce geekyfriedrice.com and geekyfriedriceguild.com are now mine! =D I will be adding more content there and on my usual platforms. I know one platform doesn't always work for everyone, so I will try to get content out there as many ways as possible for you guys.


      Also, these babies will be handed out at RTX.


      AHHHHHHHHHHHH! SO CUTE. Only made possible because of you guys. <3 <3 <3

    • Your Constructive Feedback Is needed

      2 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      Guys, meet @MikeQuinn He will be taking care of the site, its issues, processing our feedback, and all that good jazz.


      Read his RT Engineering journal here: http://roosterteeth.com/post/51271959


      You can offer site feedback here: http://roosterteeth.com/post/51271893


      Now I cannot stress this enough, but if you offer feedback, make it constructive. I know it's been a long time and many of you have been dealing with the issues of the site, but you have been asking for ways to fix it, so here you go. Yes, it will take more time, but the ball is now rolling. I don't understand web back end stuff, and I certainly cannot pretend to know how to manage and maintain a site of this size, but I implore you to understand that this is the start of the change that the community requested.


      I also know that people have left the site because of its lack of functionality, but if you are reading this, you have obviously stayed for one reason or another, and I am happy for that. I've read your frustrations and shared a lot of them, so I'm asking you guys to pull together and do your part to make this website great. The link above is not your personal journal where you can word vomit all your anger; it is a hub for suggestions that will improve the site. You guys have been here for a LONG time. You know what works, what doesn't, what can be improved upon and what is ultimately not needed. So offer your suggestions. Again, this stuff takes time, but I hope you know that your insight is valuable to these guys and they are relying on us as much as we are relying on them.


      We stayed here because of each other. This site is our home, our base, our sanctuary. Let's take care of it.


      PS: Welcome Mike to the RT family. <3

    • 600 Subs? WUT

      3 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      Ever since I launched my YT channel a couple years ago, I never thought I would have so many people subbed to it. I know it's a small number compared to the big names, but it's a milestone for me. I did a vlog back in September of 2014 thanking everyone for subbing to the channel and at that time, I was at 200 subscribers. Fast forward to current day with me uploading a couple videos a month (I'm trying to get up to 3-4 a month), launching a Patreon page, getting the GeekyFriedRice Guild fictitious firm name up and running and streaming on at least a weekly basis, I've come to the realization that I have something special. And it's special because so many of you have joined me on this journey.


      Editing videos, streaming for you guys, watching and listening to the reactions of my highlight videos have become a bit of a safe haven for me. I enjoy it so much and I dive into these things when I have free time but more so when I need a sanctuary. You guys make me so happy. Please never forget that. Thanks for sticking around in the GFR Guild!


      Now that all the sap is out of the way, here's the newest highlight! This is by far the most disgusting fight I have ever experienced in a video game. Like... G**DAMN.



    • Charity Stream, Raffle Prizes, See Me Rage And Fail TODAY!

      3 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      Today is the Audreypaloozathon!


      @Raf is starting us off with Resident Evil 4 and now I want all the Leon Kennedy figures ever made. Go give him some support as he takes down the Las Plagas over at twitch.tv/flybarger


      Please join us in chat, donate for a chance to win some awesome prizes and spread the word so we can help Audrey and TJ with their hardships.


      To reiterate, I know there are a lot of charities out there and a lot of people are requesting help for one reason or another, and it's amazing how helpful and generous you all are. Let me be one of the first to tell you that Audrey did not ask us to do this for her. We are doing this because she has done so much for this community and she has never asked for anything back. She has stayed up literally for days to make sure any charity streams she organized went smoothly. She coordinated those on her own and she helped raised thousands for other people and other charities. Now that hardships have hit her, we want to help her out however we can.


      I will be playing Dark Souls 3 today AND I will be raffling off some cool stuff. For every $15 donation that is made while I am streaming, you get entered into a raffle to win one of the two prizes below. I will also open donations to my own channel and anything that is donated there, I will give to @Audrey


      twitch.tv/geekyfriedrice

      I hope you're able to chill with us today!


      See you in a few hours! LESS THAN THREE YOU ALL!
