  • Rallier commented on Best TV Makeups - Episode 2 - 10/24/2014

    @will: Dunno about that. Title first makes it kinda seem that, in this case, "best tv makeups" is the title of the actual podcast. But eh, not that much of a biggie. Just a tad odd to see both TIOAT and CG on the same page with different formats.

    Also you guys should consider adding icons to the podcast on the front page, considering that there are now 3ish distinct podcasts on the site.

    The change in the title format compared to the tested regular format is a bit jarring

    tested: episode - title - date

    Creaturegeek: title - episode - date

    @General Desire: He had a long spree initially where is was pretty regular but all the sudden it stopped. That'll kill a good part of your viewer base for sure.

  • Rallier commented on New captain disillusion video!

    I really love this guy's work, it's a shame that he does not post videos more often but I can only assume that what he makes is pretty labour intensive and that he has other things to do as well.

    He isn't really getting the number of views he deserves in my opinion, but that's the fickle nature of Youtube for you.

    @StephenWestervelt: Hey now, there were only 70 spam posts for me to delete, that's not too bad. /s

  • Rallier commented on Do a podcast on Gamergate

    @kim_a: "And your claim that the behavior and attacks are in any way symmetrical from both sides is absurd." You've never read twitter comments i see.

    Look, there is so much to this, and i do not care talk about any of it in detail.

    @kim_a: What debate are you on about?

  • Rallier commented on Do a podcast on Gamergate

    @texasworldmusic: I hate to engage in this because frankly it has become such a mess that it's not worth the trouble.

    When i said it was a clusterfuck i meant it. Tested may very well talk about free speech and respect but that is just a part of the whole picture.

    From the top of my head there is:

    • Sarkeesian dishonest kickstarter
    • Sarkeesian painting the whole male demographic, and games as sexist and misonogyst in her video series.
    • The deal with that one dev sleeping with a reviewer from kotaku.
    • The initial gamersgate movement that called for better journalistic standards in the gaming press.
    • All the gawker sites working together to slam and silence the emerging movement.
    • The (successful) call for boycott of the gawker sites and their advertisers.
    • Attacks from supporter from both groups viler than you can imagine.

    @kim_a: it was a different, unrelated threat.

    @kim_a: Guess i'm not 100% filled in.

    edit; turns out it was someone called brianna wu who did that.

    I'd rather not.

    It's such a bloated subject that can be summed up as an utterly poisonous clusterfuck of fingerpointing and broad generalizations. Two insane strong voices clashing drowsing out the sensible people.

    I honestly doubt that the Tested staff would be able to discuss it correctly.

    As for her receiving a death threat, not surprising, every famous person does. Does not make it good, far from it, but I honestly do not get why people are surprised.

    I believe she even went so far as to publish the actual threat which is the most nonsensical thing you could ever do, unless you have other motives that is. I feel like she is milking it in her favour.

    I doubt the threat was ever serious, i remember reading that the local police and the university staff looked into it and said everything was safe.

    Most likely a troll that ended up hitting jackpot, whilst playing in her hand.

    Yeah, this is freaking scary, they're starting to take over our own topics. So many people offering to moderate, me included. @will,@norman, let us help. Me personally, I am in western Europe, so could spent a couple minutes deleting crap before you wake up.

    @Rallier , you actually are a mod, don't you have closer contact with Will and Norm/behind the scenes Tested people?

    Yes I have, but not in a way that i can influence anything that Tested, or rather it's parent company does.

  • Rallier commented on Chris Hadfield has a book out

    Tested second favourite Canadian has a book out today(?) titled "You Are Here"

    In You Are Here, astronaut Chris Hadfield creates a surprisingly intimate and compelling visual essay about the planet we live on, choosing the best from the thousands of photos he took on the International Space Station.


    So far only 5 star ratings on the various online book stores. Barns and Noble has it at the cheapest price apparently.

  • Rallier commented on Text edit bar's styling messed up.

    Not sure if this one is only on my end but the text edit tools background images seem to have quadrupled in size for some reason.
