    tl;dr: This forum will be shutting down on August 1. If you want to submit new Catchphrase Suggestions, sign up for a Twitter account and tweet them to @CBBCatchphrases. Why is this happening? The forums are on their last legs. Participation here has fallen off a cliff in favor of Reddit, Twitter, the HDTGM Discord, etc. The service the forum uses to send email is being phased out, which means members are already having trouble signing up/logging in and these problems will only get worse. Without constant vigilance, the forums are flooded with spam. 50% of new user registrations—more than 200 within the past two months—are from spambots, and I have been forced to hand-approve new accounts and disable private messages to keep them in check. I haven't been able to get any traction with Earwolf on the tech side. Their priorities are understandably elsewhere. After eight years of volunteering, I'm the only admin who still visits the forums and, soon, I won't have time. Why don't you just open up registrations and let the chips fall where they may? Scott still relies on user submissions for Catchphrases and Plugs Themes every week. In fact, 2021 has probably been the best year ever for Plugs Themes! It would be irresponsible for me to retire without providing a path forward. Why Twitter? Twitter handles all of the registrations, emails, and (in theory) spam protection themselves. Scott can easily check the list of incoming catchphrases and bookmark the ones he likes. And the @CBBCatchphrases account can mute anyone who becomes a nuisance. I don't have a Twitter account. You also didn't have an Earwolf Forums account before signing up! I'm Scott/an Earwolf producer and I want access to the @CBBCatchphrases account. DM me on Twitter and I'll transfer control to you. Thanks for your understanding!

    Since Unspooled is the only regularly active forum outside of CBB, I wanted to let you know that the Earwolf forums are not long for this world. I explained in detail over here but the short version is that failing software and the time required to keep it sputtering along are no longer tenable. I know many of you are already members of the Facebook group, and there might be a section for Unspooled on Paul's (or the official HDTGM) Discord server as an alternative. Regardless, thanks for sticking around and sharing your movie opinions!

    Thanks Dan! We really appreciate you. This has been a tremendous undertaking. It means the world to us. I’ve fought with Earwolf for a long time to make this a better user experience. I’m sorry they never stepped up. Which is why I locked HDTGM over to discord and the Paul Scheer discord is kinda thriving with a full community and I feel like it can easily house unspoiled. I’d love to build out the boards for unspooled as that’s where I’ve been interacting a lot and we are making a lot of decisions. If anyone wants to help. I can make sure we give you privileges to make it the way you want. I still want it to have autonomy but I also would love to make sure there is a place where we can see what is working and take in everyone’s voices. Let me know. https://discord.gg/YA95ed2k8F

    The term “Special education” carries a stigma so we are changing it to “abnormal education.”

    I'll miss the forums as a nice little corner of our world (and Facebook/Discord are not QUITE the same), but the writing was on the wall as participation declined so sharply. The Facebook group is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/unspooledpodcast/ There's a full Discord group here: https://discord.gg/8vStFpxW And also a specific channel on Paul's group here: https://discord.gg/pWedqFQn See y'all on the other side!

    My favourite podcasts are the ones where people are genuinely enjoying themselves, which is why this has become such a favourite of mine. It's not just three amazingly funny and talented people but it's the friendship that's present in every ep. No pressure to do characters or respond to interview questions. Just friends having fun together and talking about life. It sounds like something that shouldn't be so entertaining and yet, it's absolutely fantastic. Thanks for putting this out into the world!
