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

      Greetings RTNYers! It is my pleasure to announce the new program being brought to you by RTNY: MVPs!

      Or Most Valuable Person

      I'm sure you already have questions, so let's start from the top. 


      What makes an RTNY MVP?

      1. You are a positive contributor to the community, and make an effort to be involved.

      2. You have been active in the community meaning you have done at least one of the following in the last month (The more the better!)

         A. Participated in Game Nights,

         B. Attended game nights where you watched and participated in the chat, 

         C. Attended live meetups

         D. Came to movie nights and participated in the chat

         E. Been active on the RTNY Facebook page

         F. Actively posting on the RTNY Rooster Teeth page

      3. You are a member on the RTNY Community page on Roosterteeth.com


      What are other rules/ qualifications? 

      1. You do not have to live in New York State

      2. You can only win one time per calendar year. 

      3. Any member is eligible, including RTNY admins. (Note that if an admin is nominated for MVP they will not take part in choosing that month's winner. Also, any RTNY admin who nominates another user will not take part in choosing that month's winner) 

      4. You can be nominated up to 12 times in a year, but can only win once. 

      5. Nominations go from the 1st through the last day of the month. For example, any nominations made in January will be qualified to be the winner of MVP for February. 


      Okay, so how do I win?

      To be in the running for MVP someone else must nominate you. (If you want to ask someone else to nominate you... I mean... that's you) If you'd like to check out the nomination form, here is a link


      And why do I want to be member of the month?

      You get stuff!

      1. You'll get a shout out on the RTNY Twitter

      2. You'll get to choose 1 game night a month (admin approval pending). The only day not available for selection is the 1st Thursday of the month.

      3. You'll get to choose something from our "RTNY Grabbag" which is an assortment of prizes provided by the RTNY admins. More information on that is coming soon. 

      4. A $10 Gift card to the RT Store (or any online store of your choice)

      ...and maybe some other special surprises along the way.  wink


      Okay, that's everything!

      Wait! I have more questions!

      It's okay! Post 'em below and we'll be sure to answer them (and fill in the answers here on this post to help give more details!) 


      TL;DR?

      To nominate someone for mvp go to this form

      If you get chosen as MVP you get stuff.

      Have questions? Post 'em below!

    • Seventh Post (Excited and Scared)

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

      I cannot complain about my situation... the only thing I would maybe change is dial down the stress a little. I can't sleep. But I don't know if it's because I'm excited, or stressed, or scared, or D) All of the Above.


      I'm so ready to pick up and move everything, but I'm still working out the logistics of what that really means. Getting the last few details in order is proving to be more of a challenge than originally anticipated. Mostly because... well I don't know mostly why...


      I'm so excited about RTNY's Rooster Race this weekend! I think it's going to be so much fun. The planning for that has been intense, but if everyone plays their part, it should be an anniversary meet up that we won't soon forget. It's going to be the last meetup that we can go to for a while however, since our relocation to TX. We won't be able to just walk down the block to hang out with friends, or find a weekend and go into the city anymore. Any visits will need to be planned and thought out. I really hope we get some shiny new faces into the RTNY group before we head out, and get to say goodbye to some old friends too.


      That being said, once we move, the year doesn't stop. We are constantly going here or there or the other place for weddings, conferences, conventions, family gatherings... lots of happy things, but it's going to be constant. I still think a part of me will miss the city, but a bigger part of me might be too distracted to notice for a while.


      I'll keep you all posted on how the relocation goes. Who knows, maybe I'll even start posting these regularly in a series of information that I wanna share with my friends and followers? (Do I have those?) Anyone have something they wanna talk about? Want to know my process for how we picked up and moved from NYC to Austin? Wanna hear about my cosplays? Idk... :)


      I love you all. <3 Stay cool, see you later allegators!

      RTNY: Rules & Regulations

      These rules are subject to change at any time. Any changes will be fully disclosed to all members on the RTNY RT page. They go into effect as of 3/17/2016.

      By requesting to be a member of the RTNY facebook page, by participating in the RTNY Community Group Me chat, or by joining the RTNY Community page on Roosterteeth.com you are signifying that you will agree to follow these rules. As a member of the RTNY community, and by attending the streams and events, you agree to follow our code of conduct.

      The Basic Code of Conduct

      1. Be respectful of fellow members
      2. Don’t be an asshole
      3. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated.
      4. Avoid the excessive usage of derogatory language.
      5. Do not tarnish the community name by doing something stupid.
      6. Physical violence will not be tolerated.
      7. Don’t feed the trolls. Don’t be a troll
      8. Please do not Spam the group.
      9. Please do not post any pictures and/or gifs that could be deemed “Not Safe For Work.”
      10. Be considerate if someone asks you to stop doing something.
      11. Please avoid the discussion of sensitive topics in a public space.
      12. Issues with other members should not be public ordeals.
      13. It is important that ALL of our community members feel comfortable.

      For the basic procedure on dissolving a conflict with another member you can look at RTNY’s policy here.

      You can always find official information first and foremost on the RTNY page on Roosterteeth.com. If there are any RTNY sponsored events coming up they will be posted there before anywhere else. We do our best to post info everywhere, but sometimes may miss a location or two. As such any event announced elsewhere or being promoted on another one of our pages may not necessarily be an RTNY sponsored event, which does not directly hold RTNY or it’s admins responsible for said events, and as such these rules may not necessarily be in effect.

      Any person who does not follow these Rules will receive a serious talk from the admins and may potentially be banned from the group and all it's events, depending on the severity of the conflict and determined at the discretion of the administrators. The person who is being banned will be informed as to why they are no longer a member of this community. Disclosure to the RTNY community will follow said removal.

      If your safety is ever in question, or if you are concerned for your well being while in the group, please contact an admin and alert them to the situation. Be aware they may share this information with the other administrators in the group.

      If you have any questions, comments, or concerns you can contact one of the admins of the RTNY Community as follows:

      Amaury (Founder): @optimus2020

      Garrett: @GRatFinn

      Chas: @C-OtterMayhem

      Devin: @Mahar

      Priscille: @Priscille334

      Chrissy: @owyning

    • Sixth Post (Getting our Act Together and Taking it on the Road)

      1 year ago

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

      Hi Everyone!


      So, Amaury and I are moving to Austin. Here’s what that means.


      We are going to be relocating at the end of April(ish) to Austin Texas. We are getting an apartment and making it our permanent residence. We’re buying a car, taking our cat, and leaving our apartment in Queens. We’re not going to stay at Amaury’s parents house, and we aren't moving to Nebraska, we are completely leaving New York City for Austin, Texas for the foreseeable future.


      Your first thought might be, what will happen to RTNY? Let me make it clear that Amaury and I still plan to be involved on an administrative level. We won’t be able to attend meetups on a regular basis, so that will be left to the other admins, but we will still be running and helping with game nights, we’ll try and attend some of the larger events throughout the year, and we’ll still be actively enforcing RTNY rules and regulations, and standard practices. All events and organized gatherings within the state will be organized by the current admins: Garrett, Chas, Priscille, Devin, and Chrissy.


      That being said, the admin team has agreed that they would like another set of hands to help manage the local meetups, and hold down the fort on the home front, so we’re looking for applicants for the open admin position. If it’s something you’d be interested in here are a few things you’ll need to remember/be able to do:

      You have to be willing to be a team player, and assist when you can.

      Patience is a virtue, and a requirement.

      Help look for meetup ideas, locations, restaurants, anything on a regular basis

      Enforce any and all rules and regulations that may be instated

      Assist in the moderating of the social media platforms RTNY manages


      We will be accepting applications for the next 2 weeks, with the deadline being midnight Sunday March 13th. Note, you do not have to live in New York or New York City to apply, you just have to be an active member of the RTNY community. The application can take about 10-30 minutes (depending on how much you want to write), and you can fill it out at this link: http://goo.gl/forms/KE5V6XxJWF


      Now, back to the matter at hand. If anyone has questions about us moving (or the admin application), any concerns, anything at all they’d like to say, and you want us to see it, feel free to post in the comments below. You can also contact us directly if you like. Looking forward to our last 2 months as residents of NYC!

    • Fifth Post (Season 13 the end of "The End")

      2 years ago

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

      I was looking to see if anyone had transcribed Church's final speech yet, and couldn't find it anywhere through a google search. So here is the finale of season 13 church's speech all typed out. And a little bit of the back and forth before hand as well.


      Church: I just want you all to know... out of everyone I've ever met... I hate you all the least...
      Tucker: See you on the other side Church.
      [and time stops]
      Church: Not this time buddy.
      [Church's sniper rifle disappears. Delta appears next to Church.]
      Delta: are you sure about this?
      Church: I'm sure. Start a recording for me D.
      Delta: Recording
      [Delta disappears]
      Church: Hey guys If you're hearing this it means you did it. You won. You kicked the shit out of Hargrove's forces. I knew you could. But this is my last stop. See when I came into this world I was really just a collection of somebody else's memories. But with your help, these memories they... they took form. They became my voice, my personality. And after a while I began to make brand new memories of my own.
      All of these things are what make me who I am. But they're also holding me back. I can't run this suit as Epsilon. But if I erase my memories, if I deconstruct myself, the fragments I leave behind will have the strength to get you through this, I believe that. I wish there was another way, but I'm leaving this message as well as others in the hopes that you'll understand why I have to go this time.
      [Church laughs] It was... it was actually Doyle who made me realize something I never thought of before. There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero never gets to see that ending.
      They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end they just have to have faith.
      Ain't that a bitch?

      [Epsilon/Church shatters, and the fragments float upward and dissappear]

    • Fourth Post (Why I am a Rooster Teeth Fan)

      2 years ago

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

      Because Rooster Teeth is awesome enough to host contests and be so involved in their community I figured I'd take this journal prompt to heart and consider why I became a Rooster Teeth fan... and why I'm still one today. Shout out to @RTContests because that's where this idea came from!

      I am a Rooster Teeth fan because of Red Vs. Blue. Because when I was in High School a boy who had a crush on me sent me a link to episode #31 and I watched the crazy reds and blues run a death match with silly voices in Halo. I never played halo, I knew nothing about the show, but it was funny. I found it clever and watched the episodes a few times... and then went back and started at 1. After a while I either got caught up or couldn't find anymore. Not until after I made a Rick Roll video comprised mostly of shots from episode 31. Love that video. It's called episode 101, the lost episode, and about 4 times a year I get a new comment on it where someone calls me a fucktard or an idiot, or appreciates the rick roll for the clever rouse that it was in. Either way, Still makes me laugh. and then... I sort of... forgot.

      I am a Rooster Teeth fan because of Tex. When I was in college, the same boy who had a crush on me (and no longer did) sent me a link to a video of Tex beating the shit out of the Reds and Blues. I thought "Woah... they're still making episodes? Since when...? Oh... apparently they never stopped. Well I feel stupid." and then went back and started at episode 1 again. At that point I really started to look up to Tex. She was a solid, smart, female role model. She could fend for herself in a world full of men, and often came out winning... not often, pretty much every time... except that one time she was killed by a grenade. But I digress. I stuck with RvB a little closer after that. I even wrote a letter to @kzuelch . And she responded. On my birthday! She needed to know how much the character had had an impact on me. I'm still very proud of it to this day. I had Tex dog tags made so that I wouldn't forget how strong women could be, and how much potential they had, and to never give up. And then... I moved.

      I am a Rooster Teeth fan because of RTNY. When I moved to New York City from a small town in Nebraska I had all of 3 friends. 2 From college who were wonderful, and one of their boyfriends, who was also great. But it was pretty lonely. Upon seeing RTNY in several AHWU submissions, I decided that I should try and find them. With a little searching around the site, I eventually found their group page. I signed up, I joined, I introduced myself, and then got in a car with a stranger and went to New Jersey. @optimus2020 Thank you for the ride darling. I think I still owe you gas money from that day. Of course maybe we're even after dating for 6 months.

      I am a Rooster Teeth fan because they are so very aware that they are more than just an entertainment website. They know that people bond over what they create and make life long relationships with others because of it. The company and it's employees including Achievement Hunter, and new comer Fun Haus, support their fans. They show off fan art, marvel over cosplays, comment, like, subscribe, favorite and follow back. Despite being quite the large company they remember the individuals. I feel, in this community, I'm more than a number, or a person in line, or a face in the crowed. I'm more than a dollar sign on a sales receipt, more than a person holding something, anything for them to sign, more than someone they gave a high five to once. I'm a Rooster Teeth fan because Rooster Teeth is a fan of me.

      I didn't get in on the ground floor, I didn't have a ground breaking revelation, I didn't all at once realize this was some amazing thing. But they convinced me, as anything in life happens, bit by bit, not all at once. I'm a Rooster Teeth fan. Anymore, it's just a fact. And I'm certain it won't change any time soon!

    • Fit for RTX 2015!

      in Forums > Fit for RTX 2015! | Follow this topic

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

      #Fit4RTX2015

      There have been several of us talking lately, and the general consensus is we need to get in shape. So now, here is your incentive! As a side note, I want to thank Amaury (@optimus2020) because some of this was his idea. I thought the ideas were great and so... I'm going to use them as incentive and encouragement!

      Step 1: Set Your Goal!
      Many people have already thought about making the pledge: "Lose 20 Pounds Before RTX!" That being said, not everyone should be losing any weight, let alone 20 pounds, so there are other options as well. Other ideas include, but are not limited to: "Run a mile 9 minutes." "Be able to do 100 push ups" or whatever your goal may be. Make it achievable, but don't make it so you can do it in a week. RTX starts August 7th, there's your deadline.

      Step 2: Get Started!
      Get going! No time like the present to pursue the future, am I right?

      Step 3: Keep track
      Make notes of where you started, and how far you've come. Either make a document, take pictures... or just look at whatever fitness app you're using. But keep track!

      Step 4: Reward and Results
      Here's the best part. For everyone who reaches the goal that they post in this thread, I will promise a $5 gift card of their choice, which you don't have to know now, you can decide later. It's not much, but... if 15 people do this challenge well... I only have so much money. BUT! Whether it's 5 people or 500, I WILL deliver. Gift cards will be distributed after RTX, and upon proving the goal was reached. When I save prove it I'm not gonna be super picky. Maybe take a picture of the treadmill you ran 3 miles on, or a picture of the scale before and after starting the challenge. This is not only to prove it to me, but to prove it to yourself and show your accomplishments! Take pride in it! That being said, it never hurt to set your own reward goals too. Have something you want? Perhaps add it to your reward so that when you reach your goal you get something great! And you can put the $5 towards that if you want.

      Step 5 Consequences:
      This is the part that I think will really get all of our butts in gear... totally did that on purpose. If you don't make it you have to donate a minimum of $5 to Extra Life and the Children's Miracle Network. (Or the charity of your choice, but since that's sort of the one we are all active in, I figured that was a good recommendation.) What I'm planning on doing is donating for every pound that I don't lose, but still donate a minimum of $5 either way. However, if I gain weight, you better believe I'm gonna donate more than $20!

      Basic Rules:
      Don't cheat. We're working on the honor system here, so be honest. No one is going to check your work, just be honest with yourself.
      Be safe. Do not stop eating. Do not go on unsafe diets. Do not swallow tape worms or parasites. Do not go running until you pass out. We want to do this right, so be smart about it. Make it a stable weight loss rather than something that you'll bounce back from and put the weight back on after the challenge is over!
      If during the next three months (give or take) you find yourself getting very sick, or if you wind up getting hurt, you're allowed to throw in the towel. No one will hold you to your donation consequence. Life happens. Sometimes it has to be okay to drop out.

      Okay! So... here's what I'm saying.
      My goal is to lose 20 pounds before RTX!
      I'm not sure what I currently weigh, but I'll be checking that later today and taking note! (It's around 160 ish, for continuity's sake)
      I want to weigh around 140!
      If I do not reach my goal I will donate a minimum of $5 to the Children's Miracle Network, or $1 for every pound I didn't lose.
      If I do reach my goal I think I'd like a $5 gift card to iTunes or Amazon.
      And I'm starting now.
      Who's gonna join me?!

      I'm looking forward to seeing lots of people who wanna get #Fit4RTX2015 ! To sign up just post below, and i'll count that as your entry! See you on the other side!
