    I completely agree that YouTube comments are trash, but I think Reddit, while it can be the worst, has more constructive criticism. And then the rooster teeth site can just be praise. Idk, I feel like I'd read more of Reddit and the site comments.

    For Youtube I usually will give a like because I watched the video and that they made it. Only times I have ever disliked is because of racist or derogatory remarks.

    The comments by the First members are definitely the most genuine. I mean we're all here because we enjoy and support the content so it's much more relevant if we're commenting negatively. Almost every comment on here seems more personal, like something someone actually thought out and would say out loud. Not just a throwaway thing to get a reaction. Plus we as a community tend to follow the same train of thoughts about stuff and agree on stuff too. I don't know, it's just nicer on here. Definitely nice to hear that our comments get priority.

    i found this post show to be very relevant to some thoughts that i have been having about the rt community at the moment. i completely agree with what they are saying about how to YouTube community is the worst thing for the company i i total get that. i always thought that due to the size of the rt following how ever much it is was to much for the on screen personal ell to be bothered to interact with the people who watch there videos. but its if you are a first member on the site then you have taken the time to; A. support the company and B. enjoy the content enough to give 15 dollars a month so that your part of a community that is not going to just write shit in the comments. 

    if you watch any rt video on youtube and there is someone new on the comments are filled with people saying "eerrh this person is here DISLIKE", first and the ever famous cunts who correct (your). its just a nasty place and i get why they dont want to spend there time filtering out genuine viewers from the shit heads but rather a comments where people actually have something relevant to say, constructive criticism, thoughts on the episodes that sort of thing. 


    anyway nobody is reading this anyway but if you did, well thank you

    Gavin you fucking mong, when you're in any part of the xbox interface you can use the triggers to go all the way up and down.You can literally hit the xbox jewel, bring up the side menu, press RT and it'll take you to the settings.

    i wish there was a way to watch all the post shows in order, like how youtube has playlists. i like the binge mode feature they added to the site but i wish it went in order from 402 to 401 and so on.

    The fact that they go to first member's comments makes me feel like having a first membership is even more worth it besides the early access to shows and exclusive content.

    Yes, YouTube comments section IS literal garbage. No bloody question. Sometimes I have to realise it's not regular site fans there and they say stuff when they don't know much about people of RT, I gotta hold myself back. It makes me happy that Gav says he reads our comments though. Thanks Gav!

    I feel like... They're all stoned in the post show. Something just feels off. Not bad, just... different.

      well, they make the post show for first members only. So i guess it's more... intimate?

      That being said, i don't feel like the're much different .

    But that number doesn't disappear, it just doesn't increase, so the number will just stay at 14

      Im sure Burnie appreciates you reminding him what his number actually is. I wonder why he was talking about his number going down to zero when its still at 14???

    Sorry for your loss Burnie... also nice to hear that the interface on the 1 is bothering other people as well. I don't fully understand why getting into a game or settings is lower on the list of options than seeing what other people are playing or what new game I need to buy is... They need to add a rearranging feature so you can put certain tabs at the easy to get to spots.

      It's NOT slower. Use the Right and Left Triggers. Everything is FASTER. You can skip all the friends and notifications just by hitting the right trigger and on top of that before you had to go to the home screen to go to settings, now it's from any screen.

    It's so sad how terrible YouTube comments are. I absolutely agree. YouTube is trash for good feedback and it's disappointing.

    So nice to hear that they value our First comments! Also I only ever watch stuff on the site now and i was kind of feeling guilty that it takes away views from youtube? Especially with AH i know they rely on views a lot to see how a video was recieved so do they have a way to see how many people watched on the site?

    • erixonzz FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      Most likely they have view counters on the videos on the website, even though we can't see it.

    Christ must be super annoying to get invited to everything as soon as you get online. When I get home form work I like to be left alone, and game with some friends... I'd go absolutely mental if people would spam me like that. Why do they even think you would want  to game with them :)


    The only reason you would look at youtube comments is if you want to get depressed

    Genuinely happy that they discussed likes/dislikes as I've always been curious as to their mindset when it comes to that sort of 'data' especially since any video that Mica appears in is heavily disliked. I've always been of the opinion that the feedback from RT site members was valued more over youtube/reddit (not that you can convince any youtube commenter of this) but to actually hear Burnie and Gavin say it is great.

    Gavin, I tweeted you a solution to your Xbox sidebar problem!

    And Burnie, someone stole my card info last week (tried to make a $3 purchase in WA then a $180 in CA, I live on the east coast). The part that sucks most for me is waiting for the new card. It's been 8 damn days, my credit card charges are now passing $100 (purely from gas and necessities) because of this. That's wouldn't be too bad, but it's a secured card with a 25% interest rate x.x

    I'll never understand why people follow RT related gamertags, It would be the most inconvenient way to interact with someone. I imagine a majority of the office would game to relax, and I imagine it would be horrible to be spammed with messages and requests during that time. Social media is fair game, that's what those platforms are for, but gaming platforms feel/look a lot more personal to me, they should never extend beyond friends IMO.

    Is there any way Gavin can remove all the strangers off his GT? Is that something he's able to do?

      I followed them on Xbox mainly because I wanted to fill my friends list, I just bought an Xbox One S, and also because I like any kind of behind the scenes type stuff so I can see what game they might be filming a lets play for. But it does get weird when I get on later and it says Gavin is on Netflix or Geoff is on Xbox video. That is when it feels like I am impeding on their private lives. Also I will never send them any kind of message/invite.

    I just wish the rt comments were formatted more like youtube comments. The way it is now feels so clunky and hard to navigate, and your own comments get lost very easily. You'll get a notification that someone replied to you, but if you want to see it you have to scroll through hundreds of comments to find yours.

    It's interesting being a recent (within a year) first member but a long time subscriber. The first only videos are always so much more personal and heartfelt. I'm glad to contribute my monthly fee to support the company. And I appreciate the respect and kindness turned back toward the fans.

    Seiously? Who is adding RT personalities to thier Xbox friends list? Do you really think they have the time or headspace to game with all of you. I mean i think everyone at RT is super cool too but i dont want them on my friends list seeing how we arent actually friends.
