      At this point, it's official that my time with Rooster Teeth and its amazing community has come to a crossroad.


      There was a point in my life where I felt I didn't have a direction. A place to go, a world to see. But then one day I stumbled upon some guys playing video games on the internet and now, 4 years later, here I am. AH Community aside, it's been an absolute roller coaster. From the moments I started watching videos, to joining sponsor chats, to meeting friends over the internet, there's nothing more I could ever ask for in the world. But the most important thing of all, is that I got a direction. I finally found a place to go in life where I felt I could truly enjoy my passion to develop and work on my skills that one day will hopefully start my career, and it's all thank to this company.


      I truly respect everyone who dedicated and continues to dedicate their time and resources to grow the Lets Play Community channel into a promising channel for new content creators.


      I still love this place.


      EDIT: If anyone looks back on this journal, you didn't see anything...

      Oh boy, another journal! Yes folks, it's that time of the month again.


      RTX is less than 3 weeks away, and I wanted to share with you some thoughts. It's been 4 long years since I first joined this site on May 28th, 2012. If you would have told me that I would fly down to Austin, TX every year for the next 3 years, I would have told you that you were crazy. It's amazing to me that just by coming across a video on YouTube can have such a major impact on my life, and many others too.

      I first uploaded a Community Hunter video, by myself, in January 2013. Since then, I have evolved from Minecraft videos, to co-commentary in GTA, even other series such as Community Challenge and so on. Now I help co-edit the Let's Play Recap; and I talk about that in detail in my "There and Back Again" journal.

      This will be my 3rd RTX in a row, and the train to seeing my favorite personalities in person just never seems to want to stop. I truly do love meeting the people that make the amazing content I enjoy on a daily basis, and the fans that enjoy it with me. So thank you Cock Bite Productions, you rock!

      Hey! uh, hey. sup. It's been awhile.


      One of the things I wanted to talk about today is this right here.

      roosterteeth.com was a hub where community members got together, shared stories and connected with one another like no other site really did. But then, all of the sudden, everyone was thrown into the abyss with a preference to another site (such as reddit, twitter, or whatever else it is they decided to follow.)

      But now I have a hard time getting through. I don't feel as connected as I was before. Is it because I have gotten older? Maybe. Is it because I haven't watched as much rooster teeth content as before? Totally possible. But in reality, it is because there was something special about reading other peoples news stories on the front of my journals page that was what made this site so special.


      I was a lucky one though. I made friends and started skype chats with them, and it's because of them that I will go to RTX 2016 this year. But this post really isn't about me. It's about anyone else who wants to join the amazing RT community. It's so much harder than it was back then. It is so much harder because connecting with these people and standing out has now become an intangible goal.


      I know I am beating a dead horse here, but roosterteeth.com was really special to me. It was special because I felt like I belonged to a community where everyone and anyone has a chance to do great things and share them with people you like because they have the same interests as you.


      If you do end up reading this, know that you are in a special place on the internet, and even though things have changed, we are still a community.

      Hello community members and others, it's me gameoffuture again talking about some more stuff.

      It's been a long journey since the early days of the site and the AH Community. A long long journey that continues to move in all shapes and sizes. For a really long time I have struggled to keep up with what has been happening, and I have friends who feel the same way. The days of watching all of my favorite content all the time are slowly coming to an end. Only now do I see that they were right all along, and that I should just pick and choose what looks interesting and hope I find gold.

      But that doesn't mean that I can't try again. I know I'm not the same community member I once was, or ever really was at all. I want to start fresh and get back to what I love doing most, and that's making content.

      Recently I helped a new friend SDreadnoug with what's now known as the Lets Play Recap. For the past month I have tried coming up with new ways to get myself involved with the community again, and I feel like this new video series will help me do just that. Honestly if it wasn't for him I would still be sitting here regretting not getting myself involved, and I am really grateful for that.

      This post won't be linked in any way to the actual video, but all I can do is sit here and hope one of you out there ever decides to check in, because in the end that's all that really matters. That you are here, and you are at your second home.

      Farewell for now,
      Max

      Hello (Insert Name Here)

      I have been debating for awhile now to change my name here on the RT Site. A lot of it has to do with the fact that on every other social media site (Twitter/YouTube/Twitch) I have the persona "Gameoffuture" and not the persona "btw max". I really liked the joke for awhile (thanks to everyone in the RT Sponsor Chat for that.), but I feel like this was kinda the last step in making everything more unison.


      So hopefully from now on, everything and anything with "Gameoffuture" slapped over it should be mine. MINE I TELL YOU!!!

      ... or every social media site that I truly care about (screw you facebook!)

      I saw that you were having problems with the forum two weeks ago. If you haven't fixed the white screen issue, try clicking "Mark All as Read." That worked for me so hopefully it does for you :)
