      A few days ago, I was Featured User! 

      8 time champion!  caboose


      But...it might not actually count.

      You see, I was the one who put my name on the Featured User queue.


      *collective gasp from audience*


      But I have a really good excuse!

      I've been trying to keep the Featured User queue populated with active users since August. I have a spreadsheet and it totally looks like I have a system  barbara I populate the queue with about 30 Community members at a time and put a little post-it note on my monitor with a date to go back to the queue and repopulate it before the algorithm takes over. 


      And that algorithm is aggressive. It is run by @THE_HAND and it picks 30+ random usernames regardless of activity. That's not totally a bad thing, but I think having a Featured User that has actually logged in is much  better on Community's collective self esteem. ALSO: When The Hand takes over, you have to delete the queue one-by-one. There is no CLEAR ALL button. 


      Anyhoo, populating that queue can be quite the task. There is research to be done - has this Community member been logged in? How do the engage with other Community members? Are they nice? Are they sharing work-in-progress photos of a passionate project? Did they just have a baby? Are they positively engaged with Staff and/or content? Are they helpful to others? Are they writing journals? How long have they been with the Community? - and much, much more.


      And since February was WEIRD and RTX Guardian planning is in high gear, I faltered on my FUQ duties. 


      I was getting super close to the algorithm take-over date, so I had put my name on there as a place holder. I would only have 1 name to clear! Super easy, right?


      And then I completely forgot to write my reminder post-it.


      So, I FU'd myself. I FU'd myself so hard.


      I took a spot that could have gone to someone else. Who might that someone have been? 

      This is where YOU come in!

      I would like for you to tell me who you would like to see as Featured User on the RT website. Nominate folks! You can give an explanation as to why a Community member deserves to be FU'd if you'd like. You can even nominate YOURSELF! No shame; no judgement!


      Either send me a direct message or flood the comments section of this post! Let's fill up the Featured User queue! 




    • Dearest Preston Garvey - Fallout 4

      1 week ago

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

      (Copied from a Facebook post I made. Ah, my favorite problematic game ever. This is what I would say to Preston Garvey if it were an option. This is after he confronts you for taking the raiders' side in Nuka World. And, even though I killed every raider in Nuka World after gaining their trust, the Preston avatar still read me the riot act. This is a bit fanfiction-y. Not a real letter to anyone. No one is dead. TLDR: I'm yelling at a video game character)


      Dear Preston,


      I know that you're upset. I mean, how could you not be? I did so much for you and one mistake erased the entire board. There I was - awakened from cryogenic sleep after my partner was shot in the face and my baby kidnapped - to find the world that I loved absolutely shit-canned by nuclear war. 260 years into the future, Preston. And I stumble upon you and your tiny, grumpy group. I somehow manage to pick up a gun and defend you and your kin.


      I picked up a gun and KILLED for you.


      I lead you out of Concord and back to what was left of my home - Sanctuary Hills. The houses have no doors or windows, the water is undrinkable, but my robot butler is doing his damnedest to keep the property up to HOA standards.


      I gave you my house, Preston. I planted crops. I crafted beds and buildings and lamp posts out of tin cans. I built power generators and water filtration systems. I used whatever scrap I could find to make you and your friends comfortable...safe...at home. I even dropped my quest to find my husband's killer and my kidnapped son so I could help you, Preston Garvey, build an army of good intentions. You made me your reluctant Commander and passive aggressively reminded me that I was in charge after every assignment you gave me.


      I picked up more powerful guns. I killed more people and animals and monsters for YOU. I've only been awake in this world for a couple of days, but here I am fighting mutant creatures of every species so I might make a scrap of land livable. I used all of the loot to craft more amenities for YOU. I settled properties and housed more people of the Commonwealth for YOU.


      And then I heard about Nuka World. I went there, Preston. I went to Nuka World and it was crawling with raiders. These gangs were ones you haven't even heard of. One gang was dripping with more blood lust than all of the super mutant camps combined that I laid to waste. I won their trust, Preston. I got them on my side. They worked for me, much like I did for you. I gathered all of their resources and built more homes for YOU. They made me their Queen, Preston. They made me their Queen...and then I killed them all. I killed them all to release their slaves - yes, Preston! These raider gangs had SLAVES - and made Nuka World a gigantic settlement and safe trading haven for the people of the Commonwealth. There is a bounty on my head and the killers who were faithful to any of those gangs see my existence as a shiny, neon target. My Minutemen army sees nothing but potential farms and they turn tail the moment they hear the roar of a deathclaw. 


      So I stand my ground and kill more...for YOU and the Minutemen and the hope for a safer Commonwealth...a Commonwealth where my husband's killer and my kidnapped son might still be alive...


      But you, Preston, are pissed at me. You're pissed that I betrayed our "friendship" because I had the raiders eating out of my hand. You stopped me in Sanctuary Hills and shouted at me, surrounded in the decaying remains of my old life, about how dare I and my actions in Nuka World were unforgivable because I was friendly with raiders...


      Well, Preston...I built your army. I built your settlements. I fed your people. I killed for you. But all you can do is shout "Betrayal!! We are no longer friends!!" but still promise to take orders from me because I am your Commander? Then how about this order, Preston Garvey?


      Get the fuck out of my house.

    • When you spend more time on a vision board than on the actual problem

      3 weeks ago

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

      Too many people in my life openly declare "I'm going to start losing weight next week".

      And they put it off because they want more time to research or things got weird at work or they got that flu bug that's going around or they want to make their vision board for inspiration first.


      That "next week" never comes.


      I'm not knocking illness or work stress or even vision boards. Research is important. 

      But if you keep promising to start later, that starting will just not happen.


      Take the goal and look at all of the little bits n' chores that it takes to achieve that goal. Do a bit today. If it's an ongoing bit/ a new habit to pick up, set your alarm to remind you to do that bit.


      If you have declared "I need my Summer body so it's time to exercise and start eating better", consider NOT leaping right into marathon running and consuming nothing but smoothies (This is just an example; not a discussion on the proper ways of exercise and eating. Talk to a nutritionist about what is best for you) Instead, start with a bit such as your water consumption. Up that intake. Make a better choice at lunch. Mark that progress. Keep track of it. Did you have a bad day and decide to eat your feelings? Okay, cool. Drink another glass of water and try again tomorrow.


      Consider NOT filling up your vision board with photos of shit you don't have: That body, that dream house, that carefree walk across a city street with shopping bags on one arm and holding the dog's leash in another. Take visuals that put you at peace - real spaces that are attainable, real items that will truly benefit you, the foods you SHOULD be eating, the symbols that mean the most to you, the activities you SHOULD be doing, the hobbies that make you wonderfully you.


      On another social media platform, I saw a post from a friend - "I'm making another vision board for my goals! I love making these!" - in between posts of "Why have I not reached my goals?" and "I've made so many bad choices" and other phrases of regret splashed across the screen in capslock.

      They are spending so much time making those boards...creating a personalized salute to good intentions, spending money on more glitter to make all of your dreams look super cute...but no time on the tasks at hand.


      I'm like that. I'm trying to not be like that. 


      Taking my goals in bite-sized chunks has helped quite a bit. Knowing how much I hate listening to people talk at the dinner table about sodium and diabetes medication and my 500 pound shut-in uncle - in this weird way - has helped ... mostly because I don't want to be like the rest of the family: just bitching and moaning without action AND so it's one less thing I have in common with those keeping that horrible shit cycle alive. That's not the most positive motivation, but it's a motivation I can use. I learned to say "No, thank you" to choices rather than that awkward conversation starter phrase "Oh, I'm not allowed to/I can't have that". It's a hell of a lot more empowering to say "I choose another option" rather than "I caaaaaaaaan't haaaaave thaaaaat".

      I downloaded Habitica to mix my love of gaming and urge to start up new habits. (So far, lots of fun but the app & website are a little buggy and sometimes hard to navigate)

      This app has helped me hit all of my water intake goals, my stretches and push-ups, AND even got me doing regular household chores consistently!  


      And it's hard. It's this struggle between my own brain (OMG I want to put all of those cookies in my mouth) and social media (self pity shit posting to selfies taken at parties I'm not invited to into "I'm not happy with my situation, so fuck all of you doing better than I" and "I don't know why you all thin this is so hard! I did it and so can you! Don't be lazy/stupid/lame")


      I had a very difficult week when I got back from Disneyland. You're not supposed to follow up a wonderful vacation with bullshit. But I didn't back down from my goals. I wasn't going to let bullshit screw my journey. Bullshit can take my sleep and my appetite, but I will not give bullshit the honor of taking away my progress.


      And it's not easy. My goals are not easy and I'm not looking for easy ways to reach my goals.


      This was a weirdly worded post about actually STARTING on something, the struggle to keep it going, and my losing 8 pounds in the last 2 weeks.

    • YOU WANT SOME MOTHAFUCKIN MAC N' CHEESE?

      1 month ago

      SailorTweek FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold RTX Head Guardian

      Earlier today, I posted a photo on Twitter of home made macaroni and cheese cooking in my crock pot.

      I really sold the magic of this stuff.

      tumblr_okmr1u56ER1qmwl5xo1_1280.png


      So many of you had asked for the recipe, so here it is for both oven and crock pot.

      READY?


      The recipe that was handed to me:

      * 1 cup cooked macaroni - cook in the usual way (listed on the packaging) and set aside.

      * 1/2 cup shredded or diced cheddar cheese

      * 1 raw egg

      * 1 cup milk (not skim, it doesn't hold as well)

      * salt and pepper to taste

      * diced cooked ham or cooked bacon (optional)

      Grease  casserole dish of appropriate size. Arrange macaroni and cheese in alternate layers along with cubes of ham or chopped bacon. Beat egg and milk together and pour over the macaroni and cheese. The milk level should be just visible around the edge of the dish. If not, add a little more milk. 

      OPTIONAL: top with dried bread crumbs

      Bake at 350 for 30 - 45 minutes.

      This serves 2. 


      My version of the recipe 

      * 4 cups cooked macaroni

      * 3 to 4 cups of shredded cheese or a shitload of cheese - a mix of cheddar and colby (hand shredded or bagged; whichever)

      * 4 raw eggs

      * 4 cups whole milk

      * seasoning - Mrs Dash, parsley, pepper (There's salt in the cheese and meat, so no more needed)

      * cooked bacon chopped

      Spray crockpot with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Layer cooked macaroni, bacon, and cheese in alternating layers (as in the recipe above). Sprinkle each layer with desired seasoning. Beat raw eggs with milk. Pour evenly over the mac n' cheese. Trust the recipe. Do not add an egg "for good measure". You can add a little more milk, but keep calm. Set your crockpot for low heat and let that baby cook for 4 to 5 hours. You can tell when the mixture is cooked when the dish is firm to cut into....like a joyous pasta omelet drowning in cheese. 

      Crockpots differ in temp control, so keep that in mind. 


      Notice how easy it is to make larger portions. This stuff's all carbs, protein, n' cheese. For the good of your soul, serve with some side veggies for fuck sake.


      There ya go, toonsters. <3  From my kitchen (given to me by my mother-in-law who seems to have gotten it from another Navy family because "spam" was one of the optional ingredients)


      I can't believe that I posted a photo on Twitter that received more attention than most RTX Guardian posts I make.

      Maybe I should post photos of my cooking with major announcements from here on out.

      If you are behind on content (like me) and don't follow stuff on Twitter (unlike me), you may have missed some pretty terrific announcements from Rooster Teeth this month.


      First off, there be tons of podcast/talk shows hitting the site this year. Along with the triumphant return of Always Open, this is what our eyes and/or ears have to look forward to: Tubefilter article - Rooster Teeth Unveils Slate of 12 Talk Shows and Podcasts for 2017


      Second, RWBY season 5 - holly crap, we are already nearing season 5! - will be heading our way this Fall. You may have already heard of what the animation teams have in store for us, but here's a write up from Entertainment Weekly to remind you!

      Hello fellow thespians!


      A delightful theatrical opprotunity was lovingly placed in my path. I will be understudy to 2 ladies at Tacoma Musical Theater performing a seris of short plays written by Joh C. Davenport. My friend and mentor, Pavlina, is directing. I cannot tell you how FUCKING THRILLED I AM RIGHT NOW!


      But...the challenge is getting 60 pages of alternating dialogue memorized by the 29th of this month.  Memorization has never been my strength. Even with theater as my major, I find line memorization difficult.


      As I sit here at Starbucks writing line cards (home has too many distractions and this Starbucks is a pokestop), I think about this Community and how we all come from different spaces speciality, experience, and hobby-wise. I bet a few of you know a thing or two about this!


      What method do you use to memorize lines?


      (Not too bad for typing this all on my phone, eh?)


      EDIT: Figured it would be worth bringing up that Chris was a professional actor. He encouraged me to do the line card method when my university taught otherwise :)

      Hi Mary! I was going back through my old comments tab and found a post from you 3 years ago. I realized that was before RTX 2012 and well before we met and knew each other. Funny how things work out over time! smiley0.gif

      Hey Mary, when the emails go out, could you send a follow up email similar to this:

      kthanksbye!

  • Questions answered by SailorTweek

    I've been AFK for the 3 day weekend. Will be answering emails and messages tomorrow. Please be patient. :)

    Totally fair question! 

    As far as we (@sirNARVY and I) are concerned, everyone has to start somewhere. We accept applicants a good mix of applicants who have and have not been to RTX, have and have not worked conventions, and so on. Not having experience is not necessarily detrimental to your application :)

    My favorite character is difficult to decide on. I really love Amethyst because my natural reaction to disaster is a poorly timed joke. I also really like Greg because his outlook on life is amazing. Visually, I'm in love with the mysterious pink haired human woman that Pearl gets a crush on. OMG WHO IS SHE? I want to get to know her. Connie is everything I wish I could be intellectually and BONUS she still gets to act like a child. 


    This is not to say that I don't like the other characters. I could write for pages about why and how much I love almost very character in Steven Universe. 


    My favorite episode (right now) is Mr Greg. ALL OF THE SONGS and some closure on Pearl and Greg just pulls at every heart string. Pearl's song is tremendous on the emotions and is sung with such passion that I end up crying EVERY SINGLE TIME 

    According to @Bethany, tickets do not go on sale until Jan 9th.

    Guardian emails will be sent out before then :)

    Going to get a little deep on this, but I really like "Auto Erotic Assimilation". I'm trying to go spoiler-free here:  We see more of Beth and Jerry's very real relationship problems - Rick makes it with entire collective (including a giraffe) and that brings around consequences that you don't really see coming - Summer (who continues to become a more fascinating character than just the stereotypical teenager) calling out Unity on how its assimilation is morally reprehensible, but the reveal of Unity's pure motive is pretty neat. babble babble babble I could go on for pages...

    And THAT ENDING, THO.  The post credits scene is good, too :)



    We believe that everybody has to start somewhere, so we accept all skill levels. The most important thing to keep in mind is that we have over a thousand applications to choose from. Even the most experienced applicants might not get picked because we simply have too many applications. 


    There is no confirmation email. I am currently out of town til Thursday night. I will check then. If your app did not go thru, I will reopen the link for you :)

    Totally fair question. Dazzle me with your experience (you can list that in preference qualifications and in the why you want to be a Guardian section). Jokes get old after the 400th application. Make it easier on me (and a hell of a lot more beneficial for you) by showing me your passion and why you would make a great Guardian <3

    Hello! Thank you for reaching out to me!  ^_^

    Applications will be open for month (closing on November 14th at 11:59pm CST)

    After applications are closed, I will be reading (and rereading) all of the entries. I will also be communicating with my Team Leads and the RTX Events staff about who to choose. This process can take up to 2 months (being unemployed, I have to work around everyone else's schedule)

    No, y'all can't hope for any earlier than December. I will have the final count/acceptance list before RTX tickets go on sale.

    Thanks!

    Any and all teams can be beneficial for EMS skills. :) Medical emergencies can happen anywhere, so EMS skilled folk don't really have a central team. Unless absolutely necessary, Guardians don't led too much of a hand in those situations. We call the venue's emergency team/onsite paramedics to handle those situations. It mostly boils down to your other skills and how you desire to help. :) Let me know if that does not make sense or if you have more questons. Thanks!

    Per the journal post update (link):  PAs are not listed as a preference on the application simply because we receive 500+ requests each year for those positions. We will be picking PAs based on how you apply (your reasons for wanting to be a Guardian, past PA work for RTX and other shows, and your preference qualifications) 

    Check the Guardian group. There is a news post from a week or 2 ago that mentions the deadline :)

    DO YOU KNOW THE MUFFIN MAN?!

    | Asked by: Royplayer89 9 months ago

    I HAVE INTIMATE RELATIONS WITH THE DONUT MAN

    Keep your eye on RTXEvent.com and the RTX twitter account for up-to-date RTX news ^_^

    It all depends on what you want to experience at the convention. Going to a convention alone means that you get to focus on your schedule and allows you to go at your own pace (within the confines of the events schedules, of course!) Going to a convention alone doesn't mean that you won't go to community sponsored events or keep you from meeting people while waiting in lines ^_^

    If the answer to this is not on the RTXEvent.com website, then we don't ahve the information yet. Most likely won't have a date and time until closer tot he show ^_^

    That is an excellent question! I don't have the official answer, but my gut says that there will be an artist alley for 2016. Be sure to stay tuned to RTX news!

    Oh, hell. I came into WoW at the release of Burning Crusade! *LOL*

    I liked that you actually had to READ the quest text to figure out where to go. Leveling was slower so you felt a little more vested in your character. "Vanilla" WoW isn't better or worse than what WoW is today. Just different. And I agree with a lot of folks who say that the best thing about "vanilla" WoW was the joy and wonder of experiencing the game as a beginner. Everyone was a beginner. My favorite thing in the world was running Karazan. I still do it...as a level 100...solo just for old times sake!


    I adore WoW in all of its various forms (Except Cataclysm. But that is another rant for another day!). I don't play as often as I'd like, but I still love it. I've had my mage since I started. She was a blood elf...then a worgen and is now a panda. I play both alliance and horde (my heart belongs to horde) and there is still so much of the game I haven't experienced!

    Sorry, yo. I cannot give travel advice other than this: Do what your budget allows. :)

    DO YOU LIKE TOAST, TOO?!

    | Asked by: Royplayer89 1 year ago

    I LIKE MY TOAST LIKE I LIKE MY LOVERS - RYE AND COVERED IN MELTED BUTTER

    Disneyland.

    My favorite community at my favorite place in the world would be absolutely wonderful <3 Ride all the rides, take all the photos...get a little drunk at Trader Sams or Downtown Disney ;)


    I love the idea of the RT Community sticking an RT flag at the top of the Matterhorn! Ok, nto gonna happen, but we'd be a fun crew to get stuck on a ride with!

    If you changed your username between applying for and being accepted as a Guardian, YOU MUST MESSAGE ME ASAP. When messaging me, please include your old username so I can find you on the roster.


    The Guardian roster is housed outside of the RT website. You may not have been able to access the acceptance link because we could not find your username. When you change your username, I have ABSOLUTELY NO WAY OF KNOWING UNLESS YOU TELL ME. I then have to go and manually change the roster. it doesn't take a horrendous amount of time, but I'd rather be focusing on team assignments and training documents.


    Please, please, PLEASE do not change your username until after RTX - or, at the very least - Come and speak with me first.


    Thank you. <3


    I have NO idea. I was never this popular in high school or college *LOL*


    Thank you <3


    I surround myself with excellent people and learn from them. I am empathetic, optimistic, and try to react with a delicate balance of logic and emotion. I celebrate the good stuff and give myself ample time to deal with the bad. I try to be super nice to everyone :)

    That would be a question for Rooster Teeth! ;)


    Although getting hired is never my goal, it would be pretty awesome to be considered. I do my thing because I love the community and support the company <3

    Usually PAX Enforcers applications are located on the PAX site closer to the events. I've never been a PAX Enforcer, but anyone out there wanna give some info on this?

    Is this a question?

    | Asked by: Dirt410 1 year ago

    Do you expect an answer?

    hWTqoF6.jpg

    This is a hard question! If it wasn't for Emerald City Comic Con, I would not be where I am today. I learned everything I know I about convention volunteering from ECCC. I made life long friends, met some of my childhood heroes, and did things that I never knew I could do!


    BUT my favorite event for content is PAX Prime. I love games (be it board, card, or electronic pretty moving pixels) and I love trying out new things! Meeting game devs and listening to them passionately talk about their projects is inspiring <3

    I have to say DOOM.

    My uncle Rob brought the game to our house and installed it on my family's first high-end computer (that didn't have a black and green screen!)

    He taught me how to use DOS, showed me how to play the game, taught me all of the cheat codes, and even showed me how to install the .wad files to turn all of the monsters into Barney the Dinosaur and Beavis & Butthead! DOOM was gory and cool and action packed! I was too scared to watch horror movies or read scary stories...but DOOM made me feel brave. I'd see the scary thing sand SHOOT THEM IN THE FACE. And the best was the fact that my parents were fine with it. They knew my brother and I would never turn violent because of a video game. They'd even watch us play! DOOM was my gateway...and Super Nintendo was my Yellow Brick Road ;)

    I wrote a journal post about this the day the emails went out:


    If you have NOT received an email:

    * Check your spam filters - The email will be from Rooster Teeth

    * Give it 24 hours - mass email is not always instant.

    * If you still don't have an email by tomorrow afternoon - please message me here on RT so I can figure that mystery out


    If your spam filter does not have an email from RoosterTeeth.com, then send me a private message here on RT. :)

    I hear the "rule of thumb" for booking a flight is 60 to 90 days before the event. I'd wait on hotels to see if RTX has any deals. But it really all depends on your situation (what hotel you want, are you staying during the 4th of July holiday, your trio budget).

    Typically, no. Shoes are required in most event venues. Not only is this a hygiene issue, it is also a safety/injury prevention issue. This is not something that Guardians will enforce, but the venue staff will ask you to put shoes on. There are some great tutorials online for invisible shoes and/or intigrating shoes with socks for cosplay. I highly suggesting searching for those ^_^
