    • 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!

    • Giving back to one who has given so much to this community

      3 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      I'm doing a thing tomorrow at 6pm-10pm Central. The thing I'm doing is streaming for the ever lovely @Audrey because she and her husband could use a helping hand. Special shoutout to @Raf and @FLYbarger for inviting me to do this with them.


      Look. 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.


      So what we are asking you guys to do is simply hang out with us tomorrow. Watch us play video games, have us on in the background while you're doing house stuff, come join us in the chat and mingle, and show the internet why this is the best community.


      Ways you can help out:

      • Donate (no amount is too small! And there are raffles to win as well!)
      • Spread the word. Hit up the RT site, the forums, Twitter, FB, anything helps!
      • If you're a Twitch streamer, hosting the individual charity streamers would be amazeballs
      • Keep us company! Join us in chat! We love it when people stop by and say hello. Believe it or not, it helps out the streamer a lot


      I will be playing and hopefully completing Dark Souls 3 and I will have a couple of things to give away during my portion of the stream, so please stop by if you can. All deets below!


      See you tomorrow! Less than three you!

    • Friendly reminder that you're not alone

      3 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      Allow me to preface this with I, personally, am all right and this doesn't have to do with my own life; however, I was reminded that people need this reminder.


      Whether it is physical, mental, sexual, emotional... abuse is abuse. If someone beats you, if someone breaks you down to the point where you feel you are nothing, if someone forces them on you, if someone makes you believe you are worthless through telling you so every day, that is abuse. It also doesn't matter if this is coming from a romantic partner, a family member, a friend, or an acquaintance. You do not have to put up with that. The Domestic Violence National Hotline is 1-800-799-7233. If you need to use it, then use it.


      I've seen and heard so many different scenarios and it's all scary. A friend of mine was afraid to leave her (thankfully now) ex-husband because he threatened to kill her if she left. Another friend was convinced all she was good for was being a bank account and cuddle buddy to her (thankfully now) ex-boyfriend. He called her names, was an alcoholic, put his hands on her violently and she put up with that for years. A male friend was married to someone who threatened to kill herself if he left her, yet she did everything possible to destroy their marriage. And I mean everything. She was embarrassed to be seen with him in social gatherings because he wasn't as attractive as her or her friends. Her words. And she told him that constantly.


      People who haven't experienced an abusive relationship or haven't been directly affected by a loved one suffering from that won't quite understand why this goes on for so long. Abuse consumes you. That's the best way I can describe it. The negativity, the threats, the insults, that environment becomes your world without you knowing it. Being treated that way becomes your normal. It's not a sudden change; it's gradual and it slowly contaminates your life. You don't realize it's bad for you until either your life is in danger or some other events jolts your from your reality. On top of realizing you're in an unhealthy/dangerous relationship, you also have to process getting out and leaving what you considered normal for X amount of time. That is scary and sometimes scarier than dealing with the abuse itself. Your entire world will have to change.


      1) If you're going through abuse, don't feel that you're alone in that fight. Others are experiencing the same things as you.


      2) Help is available. Whether you have to call that hotline or call the police or run away to a friend's house, someone will help you. Safe havens are available to those who need it.


      3) It is a life altering moment when you realize you need to leave a situation. Acknowledge that you need to leave and stick with that decision. When it comes to abuse, things don't get better, they get worse. Abusive people will say and do whatever they can to keep you in the same spot which is under their heel (sometimes, literally), but that fake niceness only lasts for so long. Do not fall for that.


      4) You deserve better. And there is better out there. It may not seem like it in the beginning, but trust me, once you leave, you will feel liberated. You may not have an exact plan to get back on your feet, but the first step is getting away, allowing yourself to breathe, and coming to terms that you are indeed precious and you will find people who will treat you that way.


      5) I went through a lot in my life. Not as bad as some, but I have experienced enough to know that things do get better. You have to be the one that makes the first step to leave. Don't stay. Life is too short. Live for you.


      6) You can do this. I know you can.

    • RTX Lines is your go to for updates on ...

      3 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      lines at RTX!


      I stole this from @MrArcys because he is so damn eloquent in explanation:


      What's up RT Community?

      Hypothetical Situation: Let's say you've been chillin' in the Expo Hall when it hits you that the Day 5 Panel is about to start over at the Hilton. "Dang, I bet the line's already capped," you say out loud, drawing stares from the people around you. It'd be great if there was some way to check the status of the lines at all the panel rooms around RTX, right?

      Well there is... and it's @RTXLines!

      @RTXLines is the official RTX Twitter account that will keep you up to date on line happenings during the show! Are there empty seats for Dungeons & Dragons & Drunks panel? We got you. Has the line been capped for the RWBY panel in Exhibit Hall 1? We'll let you know.

      There are a few ways to use @RTXLines! First, you should know that text and data rates may apply (that's between you and your carrier). Second, you'll need to follow the account (duh). Then do the following:


      1) Setup Mobile App Alerts

      Do you have the official Twitter app on your phone? Good. The easiest way to get alerts is through the app. Here's how you do that:

      1. Go to the @RTXLines Twitter profile
      2. If you're on a mobile phone, click the star icon next to the follow button. You've correctly setup alerts if the icon is yellow. (Picture of what it looks like)
      3. If you are on a computer, click the gear icon next to the follow button, then click Turn on mobile notifications. (Picture)

      2) Setup SMS Text Alerts (Optional)

      Large events can overwhelm local cell phone data networks making browsing and, in our case, slow delivery of line alerts. FEAR NOT! You can have Twitter text you alerts over SMS, which uses the more reliable voice network. Here's how you do that:

      1. On your computer, click on your profile picture in the upper right hand of your profile page, then click Settings. (Picture)
      2. Then, on the left hand side of the Settings page, click the Mobile link. (Picture)
      3. Type your number into the Phone Number box. Click Continue. (Picture)
      4. Twitter will text you a validation code. Type that validation code into the box provided. Click Activate phone. (Picture)
      5. Lastly, under Text Notifications, check the box next to Tweets from people you've enabled for mobile notifications.
      6. Click Save changes. (Picture)

      That's it! We hope that you'll find @RTXLines helpful during the show! We'll see you at RTX!

    • GeekyFriedRice Guild Thanks and Dark Souls 3 Progress

      3 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      I had a fantastic stream last Saturday and even though I had to cut it short due to pure exhaustion, I was ecstatic that so many of you stopped by, hung out for a bit and spent part of your day with me. I think I clocked in at 6+ hours for the stream, and I had a steady audience for the duration of it. May 21st will forever be pretty special to me because of how large of an audience I had. At one time, I had 66 people! SIXTY-SIX! Compared to other channels that isn't much, but that was a huge milestone for me. It was also a good learning experience as well.


      I learned that I want to do more to keep my channel/community surrounded in a fun, safe and entertaining environment. Since I know many of you here stop by my streams, I would like to reiterate that if at any time someone is harassing or bullying you, please let me or one of my mods know. I do know that some harassment has been rampant in our immediate circles and it's not always out in public. So if someone is making you feel uncomfortable, bullying you, and making you feel unwelcome while I am streaming, please let us know AND block that person. People can still privately message you even if they are banned from said channel. I want you guys to have a good time when you stop by the channel; that will always be a high priority for me.


      That being said, I made another highlight video from an earlier stream, and I made a chibi-light vid pulled directly from the stream from last Saturday. It was dubbed a chibi-light because this situation had NEVER happened to me before in a video game. More to come! And a huge thank you to the people who are supporting on Patreon. <3

    • When I think about RTX Guardians...

      3 years ago

      kriss Community Manager

      I can't think of a finer team to be a part of for RTX. Every single one of you is so important to the overall success of the convention. We have ups and downs just like any other team, but think about everything we have experienced in the last few years. Think about the impacts you have made on the thousands of lives you crossed paths with over the weekend. Regardless of your role, don't ever feel that you are insignificant. We need every single person.


      Just off the top of my head, I know I couldn't do my job without our Head Guardians or my co-lead or my team. I also couldn't do my job without the Guardians watching over our home bases, the Guardians who block off special hallways/elevators, the Guardians who run interference, the Guardians who cut their breaks short to help me out even when they never even met me prior, the Guardians who keep constant communication with me during crunch time, the Guardians who give me a high five in passing, the Guardians who share their snacks with me when they realize I've been going all day without stopping... It's those special moments that make me feel like I can take anything on.


      When I think of you guys...


      I feel inspired

      I feel pride

      I feel thankful

      I feel humbled

      I feel uplifted

      I feel loved

      I feel at home


      I can't wait to see you guys in a few short weeks.
