  1. Hi! I think all of us who have participated in the past have shown interest in maybe starting this up again. It looks like we will be able to do it through Kast, which has worked tolerably well so far. So, if you're interested in rebooting this sucker, let me know. Also, if you're interested, and haven't already, you may want to go ahead and create an account with Kast I was thinking we'd pick up where we left off: First Friday of the month, 9PM EST. (Although, I was thinking we shoot for Jan 8th since the first Friday in January is New Year's Day and that might not be ideal for everyone ) Also, how do you all want this to be? Do you just want to be where we left off in the HDTGM catalogue (I'll have to look what the last film we did was) or do you want it to be more open? For example, I know a bunch of us have been goofing on A California Christmas. Should we structure this more like Musical Mondays where somebody picks a film? Or, since we're piggybacking off of the HDTGM thread, should we keep to the plan and just do those other movies on a more individualized basis? Anyway, I hope you guys are in! I want 2021 to be a better year, and I always looked forward to these evenings with you guys.
  2. I would set you up a Kast, but from my experience, Kast doesn’t work with iTunes.

    Earwolf: We’ve cut off ease of access to the forums. Also Earwolf: The forums are clearly dying so we should stop supporting them.

    Yeah, perhaps stupidly, I just assumed when we created a thread they’d magically link up. I totally get why the forums are an issue now. It would have been nice for some support from Earwolf, but I guess that just wasn’t going to happen.
  5. Same thing happened to me. I rented it last night, but haven’t finished it yet.

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    I meant to respond to this earlier. @AlmostAGhost, @JammerLeaand I continued the conversation with Paul beyond what I posted here. After speaking with him, it’s clear we all want the same thing: a thriving community. However, as he pointed out, Earwolf has done a pretty piss poor job of making the forums accessible (not his words). A few years ago, they stopped creating threads here, basically leaving it up to us here to do it. In and of itself, I don’t think that’s terrible, but as Paul pointed out, if you are a new poster, there’s not an easy way to access them. It’s easy for us because we visit frequently enough, but if you go to the Earwolf homepage and click the “join the discussion” button on any given episode, it takes you to a broken link. Also, a lot of the “contact” information redirects people to Twitter, Facebook, etc. As you can imagine, this must be very discouraging to people who want to post here. Of course, none of us had any idea about this. It’s no wonder the forums have been seeing less and less traffic. Anyway, we’ve been trying to put together an official Discord for the show that will mirror the set up of the forums as close as possible. I hate to abandon forums here, as I do prefer them for a lot of reasons, but without Earwolf’s support, I don’t know what else we can do. I will say, having played around with Discord since Friday, it’s not bad. It’s definitely different, but like you were saying about change — it comes whether we want it or not.

    HDTGM Classics: The Return

    I had a great time last night, all!

    This is the link to my Kast room https://w.kast.live/ (I think)

    We'll vote on it Some movies are just bummers.

    HDTGM Classics: The Return

    Hi Pete! We used to go through the catalogue pretty religiously, but honestly, there were some movies we didn't want to revisit. We are doing this through Kast now. You will probably need to create an account. My UN is CameronH1. We do these the first Friday of every month at 9PM EST. If there's another movie we want to watch, like ROPED this week, we'll put a vote up. Otherwise, it's straight down the HDTGM catalogue. So, next month, it would be Tiptoes (OMG, I've never seen that )

    That's how it came off to me at the time. We can all co-exist. There's no reason to push anything down in order to raise something up.

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    That's my thought too. I mean, they would need probably need to pay someone to moderate it -- which is doubtful

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    Paul has been talking to me and @JammerLeaon Twitter. It’s too difficult to post it all here though. He’s asking if we could build out our own discord that could function like the forums. I have no idea how to do that, but I’d be open to it.

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    I took the "don't spread this misinformation" to be the joke he was referring to, not what he said on the ep. I could be wrong. It could be both. Who knows? If only there was a platform that allowed people to express their thoughts fully and clearly without having to worry about character count Yeah, the forums do suck for phone. I agree with that. But, again, it's about the platform. Discord, Geneva, Twitter, aren't made for long discussions, just eruptions of spontaneous word vomit. The forums are better on a computer because you are generally typing and expressing more than "KUMITE!"

    True. I’m not sure what’s gained by saying the forums suck ass. All it does is drive people away — which isn’t good for anyone. He could have just been like, “Hey, I’m on Discord now, and I’m pretty active there if you want to hit me up and say ‘hi.’” Again, I don’t think it was malicious, but most of us visit the forums at least once a day to chat with one another. We’ve all developed healthy, positive relationships with one another and are always welcoming. I don’t get it.

    HDTGM Classics: The Return

    I’m going to hosting. (It worked last time I tried) So, yeah, you’ll need to friend me. If you can’t find me, I’ll look up my UN and post it here.

    And, I know we’ve said this before, but the forums are a great place to have a conversation. Where you can laugh and joke to well reasoned posts that aren’t just, GEOSTOOOOOOOORM!

    Episode 256.5 - Minisode 256.5

    I Tweeted at him, but more jokingly. A text to him might be a good idea. I think, and I could be wrong, he just meant the platform sucks ass. He’s been saying that ever since Earwolf changed things up from the classic forums. I’ve privately wondered if he never took the time to customize his experience. I remember the default was originally a garish bright white which looked terrible and hurt my eyes. We Shannon had to come in the boards and tell us how to change the color scheme manually. I remember that soon after he specifically complained about it on a mini. He really hasn’t been present on the boards since. I can’t really think of another reason why they would suck. I find them far simpler than most sites, and not the headache inducing cacophony of Geneva or Discord. But yeah, just saying it “sucks ass” is kind of a kick in the teeth. The people are great here, and always have been. Saying the forums “suck ass” really deters people from taking the time to come here and make an account. It sounds like we’re all fighting, nasty, and gross — which couldn’t be further from the truth. We are all welcoming (except for the occasional asshole). I don’t even remember the last time we’ve had a significant negative experience. Anyway, I wish @paulscheerwould clarify that it’s not the people here who suck ass. I would love if more people would join up. They are a fun place, but no one is going to want to come hang out if the host gives off the impression that they’re a cesspool.

    Is everyone still up for Roped this Friday?
  22. I want ahead and checked just to confirm. He asks her what she wants (not wishes) because he’s “feeling generous.” She never says “I wish.” So, again, without any limits to his powers, he should have been able to shut WW down real quick.
  23. And that’s (part) of what made it terrible. A line or two could have easily clarified things.
  24. No, she never wishes for it. After the broadcast, he says, “I take your strength, and your health and give her your rage and your prowess.” He is giving her abilities based on the wishes coming in.
  25. I’m just saying there should have been rules. Something to establish what he can or can’t do. Like, a wish cannot be used to directly harm someone, or the Amazonian armor protects her. We’re just supposed to believe this person with powers unto a God, never worked out a complication. I also didn’t understand why he took so ling to heal himself. As soon as my health started to waiver, that’s the first thing I would have done. Or, after he hurt his son’s feelings, why not make it so his son forgot what he said? He should have a surplus of wish dollars and he spends it on making... traffic light?
