Community Happenings

It's been a while since I pointed out all the awesome things happening around the community. I'm such a slacker...so to make up for it, here's a recap of things you should totally be paying attention to!

The Burnie Journey

@Count3D and @FriscoFlame are taking an epic road trip based on a road trip from San Fransisco to Austin that @burnie described in Podcast 216, and they're making two documentaries along the way. Okay, one is more of a documentary and the other is more of a "comedic adventure narrative", but that was hard to describe in fewer words. They'll be stopping to visit some community members along the way, as well as creating all kinds of accidental (and probably some intentional) havoc I'm sure. You can find more information and donate to help fund their travels on their Indiegogo campaign page.

RT Secret Santa

Last year we had nearly 200 people across the globe take part in the Secret Santa, and we can only expect this year to be even bigger! Sign ups for participating will open soon, we're just finishing up some preparations In the meantime, to accommodate some shifts in the team as well as lighten the expected load, we're looking to add a few admins. We're hoping to find admins who reside in each of the regions we break the group down into since you'll be able to better plan out exchanges (rather than someone else constantly consulting a map and pretending they understand your country's geography). If you are interested in helping organize and run the event, please contact me via PM (bonus points for telling me what country you live in so I can track that properly). We'll hopefully be finalizing admin selections prior to opening sign ups.

Extra Life

Extra Life is this weekend, and there's a lot of different people who have stuff planned. I am on a team with the TFT Podcast crew, and we have a full 24 hours of streaming scheduled! We'll be starting at 5PM CST on Saturday and going til, you guessed it, 5PM CST Sunday. We'll all be rotating in for different games, including some group games to play with our viewers like Town of Salem and CAH! I will also be doing a giveaway of a small painted canvas like my Mass Effect ones, randomly selected from anyone who donates $10 or more to my campaign. Check out the team page, and help us reach our goals! Follow us on Twitter and on Twitch to keep up on the happenings.

WAFFLE-O

You helped me, you helped @lambency, now it's time to help another member of the RT Family. @suppi and @FantomFan56 are currently without power or water after being kicked out of their home (which is being sold by the landlord) way earlier than expected. It's kind of hard to function without the ability to take a shower or run a toaster, so they need our help. If you have anything to spare, please consider sending a little cash their way via Suppi's PayPal at [email protected]

UPDATE: @Ilan is doing an impromptu donation drive stream to generate funds for Suppi! He'll be going for 12 hours starting RIGHT NOW. Click here to get in on the action!

Community Events

There are a BUTT TON of community events happening in the remainder of this month and all through November. If you aren't in a habit of checking the Community Events Calendar, you need to fix that. Almost every community based event ends up there, and it's a great way to find out there's something going on near you. The more people who show up to events, the more likely another event is to happen near you! It's science. Bonus: expect to see an RT Michigan event appearing there soon

----------------------------------------------------------------

I try to do updates like this every once in a while since it's so easy for stuff to slip under the radar. If you ever stumble across something that needs some more attention, let me know! I keep a running list of things to highlight, but I can only see so much myself.



Also, thank you to everyone who showed some love to my husband's Storenvy shop! First batch of orders is being shipped today :)

RT Community Emergency

So I know a lot of you know who @Suppi is, and basically what happened today is that her and her dad, @FantomFan56, where kicked out of their home way earlier than expected while in the process of moving out of their home. This is really unfair to them, but luckily they had another place to go to.

However Suppi is only recently reemployed and is a little strapped for cash right now, and while she and her Dad did have a place to go to they were unable to afford power or water and they're going to need a little help.

Suppi's paypal is email address is [email protected] and anything would really help right now.

It would mean a lot if you could donate, even a little. Suppi has done a lot of the community both online and as guardians and it would be a really big help if you guys could help her out.

Thank you so much!

Bullying and le internet

I know I already wrote about this, but let's talk a little more personal, shall we?

Found out I was a subject of a subreddit a while ago without my knowledge in the manner...

And everyone was polite and no one judged me.



Thank goodness it wasn't one of my cosplay pictures... (><)

In my images there's a little picture I made, about me forgetting to make a sandwich because I was playing video games... Harmless fun, yes? Basically my response to the eleventy billion times I've heard "get back in the kitchen and make me a sandwich" while playing Halo. I posted it here because I thought "Hey, Roosterteeth will enjoy this!"

Because, you know, jokes are funny.

Apparently someone was rather the butthurt and took it over to reddit where several hundred other butthurt people had a field day commenting on it.

They acted like I had killed several kittens, smeared the blood over my body, personally gave them all the finger, and hailed Satan with my Xbox controller.

Now, me being me, couldn't give any sort of shit what cowardly faceless people have to judge about me, my appearance, or my humor...

Because, let's face it, I'm



I got typical things, like 1,000 references about how stupid gurl gamers are, that I'm a 'Wapanese', and even that I needed a new haircut. A few references to RT because of the shirt I was wearing and because I have a profile here.



The fun part about all of this is not one comment, yup I actually read them all, did they say anything that was remotely offensive to me... and that's not from lack of trying.

My favorite is the "wapanese" one. (Like I've never heard that one before)

Wait, wait, wait.... So I'm a "wannabe Japanese" person for teaching myself the language, living over there for several years, and then using my skills in the language and culture to do translation and volunteer work in disaster relief efforts?



It's obviously died down now, but let's talk about bullying for a moment.

Like, let's say, I was a teenager and this happened.... I think I would react much differently. I would be extremely hurt, (How dare they make fun of my fedora!) because I wouldn't understand why random people would want to make fun of me in such a manner...

It's no surprise that das internet spreads a great deal of hate with very little consequence. Our culture is so, that making fun of people is quite normal, no matter who they are, you're allowed to have an opinion about anything from what they say to their appearance.

None of these people, however, would dare say those things to my face, let alone even come to my RT profile and try to say it. Because oh boy would I knock them down so fucking fast.



I also believe many of you would be behind me if anything like that happened here, and for that I thank you!

Hah... le internet people are bitches. People really will hate you for no reason whatsoever.


Thank you for letting me rant about this.

I love you guys. Unless you're the person who brought that picture to reddit... I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. What I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. I will look for you, I will find you, and I will calmly sit you down and tell you what you did was very naughty...
