NEW TEA TIME TODAY
As the banner at the top of the page says, we are doing another tea time today. In the past, these have usually been
long-winded paranoid rants
informative lectures from Atlas; however, since Atlas has gone to live on a nice farm in the country and none of the rest of us have anything terribly interesting to lecture you all about, we've decided to make this one an informal Q&A session where you can ask us all questions about the site, or about anything else that's on your mind. This is sort of a test-drive to see how things go; we are hoping to get these started up on a semi-regular basis again, and hopefully will have some slightly more interesting content for you next time.
Like the vast majority of our events, this one is poorly coordinated and will probably be a shitshow. However, if you are the kind of person who likes staring at train wrecks, feel free to join us at about 1:00 PST (roughly one hour from the timestamp of this post).
As in the past, we will be conducting the session via Discord. You can join the Discord server via the link below.https://discord.gg/u7xQf2bFuj
If you do not want to use Discord, you can listen in via a stream on JoshWhoTV which is currently being set up by our good friend Stix. Stix will post the details once he gets it figured out.

My condolences to him, then.
The staff do all of their communications through discord, so if you want to be a mod you should join the server so you can get started.
I am sorry to hear that. My prayers are with Elway and his family.
Speaking of staff nominations, remember when over a year ago Ancap was fully nominated and approved for staff, but a certain programmer couldnt be arsed to make a login for him, and he eventually rescinded his staff application 'cuz ffs rly?'
Heres hoping new staff doesnt get the apathy treatment.
I seem to recall him telling me he didn’t care to join staff on the one occasion he’s spoken to me about it. And he’s had plenty, as that individual is in regular communication with me.
In any case, this is the Tea Time thread
. If you wish to discuss staff applications, discuss it on /qa/.
Yeah, that was 6-8 months later. Im talking about his full application, vetting, approval, etc., after which said programmer couldnt be bothered to make a login for him. And then, after months of waiting and asking, he gave up caring. Reiterating, I hope new staff doesnt get the apathy treatment.>tea time thread
Oh I see, its okay to talk about tea time, just not okay to talk about the ostensible topic of tea time. At least, as long as that discussion is non-complimentary.
Do we have topics for Saturday's Tea time, and know who's going to attend?
Are you in the Tea Time server? You should bring this up next session.
Just playing Hearts of Iron 4 with the Equestria at War mod. No staff have shown up yet, so expect another relaxed day.
>>314372>Maybe we should just bring /vint/ back, add /mlptg/, and then put /x/ somewhere else. Maybe /xk/ for weaponized schizos.
This sounds good. We bring back our sister board from April Fools, /tg/ anons get their play to RP as ponies, and /xk/ can discuss what weapons are the best for hunting down cryptids and skinwalkers. Everyone winds up satisfied.
I'm late. Actually damn late.
An entire board for multiple pony roleplaying threads at once would be great
But there could be more roleplaying threads on a new board. I'll understand if not everyone wants this but to me it seems like an absolutely beneficial thing.
Sorry anon. You didn’t miss much though. That game went horribly and I provided hardly any commentary. Next time, it will go better and you will be able to watch.
Yeah, I think it would be best as this:>/vx/ becomes /vint/ (our sister board): /v/, only with country flags>Add /kx/ for "Schizos" or "Weaponized Autism" (dangerously based)>Open /mlptg/ and call it "Horseplay", for pony roleplay/fantasy
The current /vxintgqst/ thing is too broad, and I feel like forcing so many topics to share space diminishes all of them.
Do you really think the state of /vx/'s topics is as good as it really could be? I see stagnation, confusion, and smothering of content. I think this community has a lot more potential than what we've got now.
I've observed and participated in /vx/ every day for years now. I don't care for the board itself, but I know that our community could definitely do a lot better on those topics.
Also I hope... better said, I demand that if in case boards are restructured, that won't be used as a trojan horse for to change a single comma in the Policy Page.
Nobody said anything about the policy page. The policy page is fine, if a bit sloppy (as it has always been, no problem).
I think restructuring the boards could be a net positive. I think organization could promote content.
I'd recommend combining /a/ with /sp/ to resurrect our sister board /asp/, were I not concerned for the purity of John Elway memes.
Another slow week it seems. I am going to be playing Dominions 5 with a mod that partially works. I haven't been able to figure out how to alter it or get a custom map to work yet, so it will be fairly standard save the nation.
No one else is here yet, so just me hosting.
Elway is here if anyone wants to join.
I'm there. And everyponer already left.
I will try to post recording after cleaned up and all that.
>>319447>Missed the first actual Tea Time in months
Well fuck. I had so many important issues to discuss too....
I wish I could tell ahead of time when we had fully-attended sessions. My Saturday evenings are usually pretty busy, so I can only join when I know people are actually going to be here.
Sadly I messed up the recording, so don't have anything usable to post.
Another less than planned tea. I will be trying to play RimWorld.https://www.joshwhotv.com/live/0/_60b2c0f161b04/1
Weird, that whole 'seat-of-our-pant, surprise 'come join the stream' thing isnt working. its almost like if you want anything resembling a turnout you need to schedule and post notice in advace. A pity no one suggested that oh, wait, there was one guy
Playing more Mount and Blade and Elway is present today, so it should be more engaging than last time.
Reminder that anyone can join the server. Here's a link:https://discord.gg/tEjkkJAP
As discussed in chat, if anyone is interested in staff applications you can send an email:[email protected]
This one is less organized as we attempt to set up the movie to watch, but it might work, so we have the normal set up as a fallback plan.
The more /our guys/ streams, the more the merrier. However, since this is a board I'll just remind you that the stream should never at some point take over the board. There are many more streams out there than there are anonymous boards, that isn't pozzed, like this one.
Just a friendly reminder.
>>321878>that isn't pozzed, like this one
I mean the reverse. I'm tired.
This is a based board.
No problem. It's just an activity that we do. Nothing too formal.
Yeah, I thought so. Felt a need to make myself heard, is all.
Probably and overreaction on my part.
Playing Noita again while we wait for more people to show up.
I'm late again.
