So after a loooooooooooong time away from this site, I thought I'd come back to see if anything that my friends (friends I all met through this very site) were true. Admittedly, hearing that the site had switched from the community driven family that had gotten me through some of the scariest moments of my life to a site almost solely and lifelessly dedicated to promoting videos and practically no emphasis on community members (you know, those who made this company by buying merch, DVDs, promoting videos, becoming sponsors) had me morbidly curious. I gave up my star a long time ago, but that was mainly because I thought the quality of RvB had really gone downhill, the feed had become a stream of people posting half dressed anime girls and thus any actual real journals with any substance were buried and the guys over at Achievement Hunter turned from a bunch of cool guys I would have loved to game with (sometimes playing some Minecraft or GTAV) to a bunch of arrogant pricks who took "joking" way too far who I'd never want to game with playing ONLY Minecraft & GTAV. I stopped listening to the podcast the episode where they spent the first 10-15 minutes ranking on Jack ON HIS FUCKING WEDDING DAY. I don't care if they "clarified" that they all liked Jack later on in the podcast, IT WAS HIS FUCKING WEDDING DAY. So yeah, I lost faith in the product and the rapidly dwindling community a long time ago.
Well, great news, guys: there are like 0% pictures of naked anime girls clogging the feed and burying posts anymore! Why? Cause everybody's gone! My feed is the same 5 people (and for sticking around, good on ya and God Bless) posting journals semi weekly. The other people? Other than some new community manager type guy wondering why everybody is disappointed with the new "community" site, mostly any other journal is another one of the long time community members posting good bye journals.
This place was a second family when I got here. I 50% of the original 4 Team DBAH members i met here. After that, 90% of the remaining admins and members of Team DBAH were people i met through this site. I am closer to those admins who I have never met IRL than people I've known (except for Craig & Nate) IRL for 20 years. Please believe me when i say i am more than happy for Rooster Teeth as a company for expanding beyond their wildest dreams. They are the internet success story that you always want to happen to you the first time you post a video. But if that is what the site will be know for from now on, just be a promotional site. Don't hype a community you don't have anymore.
So with that, I'll respond to any comments left on this journal (if I'm notified?) but that's really it for me here. I'm pretty much done with this place. Hell, i doubt we'll even post on the Team DBAH page anymore. If you need me, I'm CharlieDanger82 on the Xbox One & Playstation Network. Friday Night DBAHcheries will always be Friday nights at 9pm EST and we alternate consoles every week so if you'd like to join up, give me a holler. and i really encourage you to check out teamdbah.com & youtube.com/teamdbah to check out what the awesome admins (RT Community members former & Current) have been up to.
Anyway, thanks to those still around who have helped and supported me through some serious shit. To the people I have clashed with on this site, I wish nothing but peace and prosperity to you.
Thanks for everything, we'll see you probably never and remember: Don't Be A Hero. G'NIGHT
