      Update: November 9 2015

      2 weeks ago

      Hey folks!

      I bring you some cool news!

      First up: new people! The web team just added a staff member to support the Sponsor Trouble email address: Josh! He'll be working on getting through all the tickets sent to our sponsor trouble email. We apologize for the delay, but with the size of support staff for that, and the amount of tickets coming in, catching up was a challenge. Now he's here, and we'll be getting to all of you soon!

      Another new, but not new person: Chelsea! Backers of Lazer Team know her well, as she was the one handling the backer support for the whole campaign. She's been amazing, and that is why we thought she'd be the perfect fit to be the person who looks over Rooster Teeth Sponsors! While I am Community Manager, there's a whole lot of you, and having her dedicated to look out for Sponsors will help all of us. She'll be the one listening to Sponsors and taking ideas, requests, and criticism and helping address it all.

      Next update.. some stuff about the website!

      1) Friends Feed

      On the Community Dashboard, there are lists of feeds you can look at. We just added a "Friends" feed, so you can see everything your friends are posting in one place.

      2) Fixed Comments

      YAY! There was a bug on the site that if you changed pages on video comments, it would reload the whole video. NO MORE! Now you can go from page to page of comments without it reloading the actual page. ALSO, we now have 50 comments per page instead of 10. If you click the link above, it'll take you to a journal posted by one of our Web Developers, Dave, who explains it for those of you who are big nerds. (jk) (or am I)

      3) In the works: "CHAT" is in the polishing stages. WOO!

      That's all for today!

      Stay cool and awesome.

      No but seriously, for the kids.

      3 weeks ago

      This morning at 8 AM Central, Rooster Teeth finished up a 24-hour live stream to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through a fundraising event called Extra Life. It was a whirlwind of excitement and I still can't wrap my head around everything that happened.

      This was the 3rd time we've participated, and the 3rd time you guys have shown us how wonderful and insane you are. We set out to raise $300,000 on the stream and sell 25,000 exclusive posters, ending up with a total of $500,000 going to Childrens Hospitals. It was a crazy goal, one we weren't sure if we could achieve. But you guys showed us how silly it was to ever doubt it.

      When it was all said and done, you guys helped us sell over 20k posters and raise over $365,000 (and counting, since you can still contribute!) Whether you donated $1 or $1000, each and every one of you got us there. Not only that, you helped us spread the word, and got more people watching and donating. You are all so ... powerful. It's unbelievable.

      It really all comes down to this; why are we here? What are we doing this for? For the kids. But not just that; for families, for friends, for doctors and nurses, for everyone. No child deserves to have to be in a hospital. Your donations are saving lives, and helping kids come back home.

      This is always an overwhelming experience for us, and this year was no different. We are all bursting with love for this community.

      Before I go to sleep, I want to end this journal with a few thank-yous.

      First, thank you.. to YOU. Whether you donated or just watched, we appreciate you taking the time to laugh and cry with us for 24 hours. Having you guys along for the ride makes it all worth it.

      Second, thank you to @Adam who kept us running and fixed the site crashes when you guys got REALLY excited for something. Having to stay awake and monitor things is not an easy task, but he did it, and was a champ.

      Third, thank you to the entire broadcast team. Patrick, Peyton, Tyler, Michael, Mariel, Nick, and 2 or 3 other people that I'm totally blanking on right now because I'm writing this at 12:40 AM and I'll fix tomorrow when my brain works. You guys were rockstars - constantly running around to get things we needed, change camera angles, do close ups, camera switch, add graphics, play videos or music, and so much more. Not to mention set everything up weeks beforehand, and the day of. This was a full time commitment for the entire 24 hours, and these guys deserve a freakin' medal. We wouldn't have been able to do this without you, period.

      Fourth, the whole Rooster Teeth gang. It's not easy being entertaining for hours on end, and you guys kept it going, and kept people laughing. You all put in so much energy and time, sacrificed your bodies, your hair, your stomachs, and your dignity to allow us to reach our goal. I'm so proud of all of you, and so impressed.

      And lastly, @jack & @Caiti. Our leaders. Our rocks. These two have more passion, dedication, and love in their pinkies than most people have in their whole body. The care they have for this cause shines through, and is what drives us all to do this. Thank you both for letting us do this with you.

      Now, what should we plan for 2016?

      Community Follow-Up

      3 weeks ago

      Hey guys,

      Thank you so much for responding to my previous post. So many of you responded, and put a lot of time into answering the questions, and I appreciate that more than you know.

      Bottom line: we know there's a lot of work to do on the site. A lot. I've made it my priority to help make it what we want it to be. The tech & web team has done a ton of work (understatement) taking the old site and making it something workable in the backend, and now we're going to work to make it what it should be in the front-end. We at Rooster Teeth are also putting in more effort of being active here, since you guys are our #1. We all know we wouldn't be here without YOU. And we need to be where our family is.

      I'll be honest, this will be a process. We plan to do multiple stages of usability testing, and work on fixing things one step at a time. I know we all want this site to be a place we can really take advantage of being a community, and we'll get there. We'll keep you guys in the loop as we work through things. I love you, and appreciate your support.

      Hi guys,

      As you may have heard in Burnie's vlog from today, this week all the managers at RT (myself included) are attending a 2-day Management Retreat, where we will be discussing all aspects of the company, what happened in 2015, what we hope for in 2016, and so on.

      I've been working on a list of things I'd like to talk about, but I also wanted to get input from you guys, the most important piece of the puzzle: Our community!

      I want you to be honest here.

      A lot has changed over the years from when Rooster Teeth was a group of 10 guys with a site of 20,000 users to now over 120 employees and a site of over 1.8 million users. Not to mention, a shift in focus of both the company and the community to various social media platforms (twitter, fb, reddit, tumblr, etc)

      I'd love to get your opinions on any (or all of) the following:

      • 1) Your favorite part of the RT community
      • 2) Your least favorite part of the RT community
      • 3) What you think we're doing right
      • 4) What you think we're doing wrong
      • 5) Suggestions/ideas for strengthening the community
      • 6) Do you feel like you're being heard?
      • 7) Have you ever had an issue? and was that issue resolved? How did you go about contacting someone about the issue?
      • 8) One feature you wish we had on our site (could be something similar to another social media platform: e.g. a Twitter feed)
      • 9) What you want to see more of, and what you want to see less of.
      • 10) Anything else you'd like to add

      I'm looking forward to reading what you guys have to say.

      Thanks, and love you,

      We wanted to celebrate by having a scavenger hunt, with the grand prize being.. *drumroll*… a signed RWBY Poster by the cast and a $100 Gift Card to our store!

      Here’s how it works:

      Each day this week, we’ll be "hiding" a letter on each of our social media channels. After you have each letter, you’ll unscramble them to come up with a wor. Use this word at the end of this link: word here).

      That link will take you to a form. Fill in the form, and you’ll be entered to win! (Sorry, only one entry per person)

      And that’s it! The first name we pick at random from all the entries will win the grand prize. The next 4 names will all win $25 to the RT Store! Plus, for completing the form you'll get a 10% off code for all RWBY merch in the RT Store!

      Here’s the schedule for where we'll be posting the clues:

      • Monday: RT Site (this journal)
      • Tuesday: Instagram
      • Wednesday: Snapchat (Username: RoosterSnaps)
      • Thursday:Twitter
      • Friday: Facebook


      Your first letter is... “A”!

      PS- if you figure it out, keep it to yourself! We want everyone to be able to enjoy the game and the fun.

      I finally got both volumes 1 and 2 of RWBY on Black Friday and started listening to the cast commentary on both. First off, I love hearing cast commentaries on, well, everything and RWBY is no exception. Anyhow, my two questions, will we get to hear more wonderful (and groan worthy) puns from Yang over the next few seasons? My other question is how many times a day do you end up hearing marriage requests from us?

        Same here. I was rooting for Yang all the way and then Tifa was announced. I was like, "Well now. That changes things."
        Either way, it is going to be an awesome fight. (Can't help feel that this is another nod to Monty)

        If anybody has seen the sneak peek picture of the fight, looks like Yang is going to bust up another bar, more specifically Tifa's bar.

      Site update is cool! One question. Has anyone thought about having RT Staff names standout so that your posts are more obvious than other posts? Kind of like how in many forums, Admin posts are colored? Maybe make staff names colored so they can be easily seen. Or Staff names 1 color, and moderator names another color.

      Just wondering. Have a great weekend.

      Hey Barbara. I tried to send you a private message but the button on your profile doesn't put you in the "To" slot and it says error at the top of my screen so I thought I would try this instead. I just had a question about the autograph ticket thing. I ordered 2 Friday passes one for me and one for a friend i understand the rule for the e-mail part but my main question is would we be able to use that on any day or just Friday? Also does this guarantee a signature because the first 500 or so people claimed a spot or is it just you would cut the line sort of thing? Thanks in advance! if i don't hear from you in the next day or two ill see if i can find another way to reach you! Can't wait to be there!
