Idea for a Watercooler Feature
An idea came up in a PM conversation with Miss Anonymous over the weekend: a 'Ramble Of The Week'. Each week someone would be picked to type a 'ramble', and everyone could then post responses.
I figure this is something we could do weekly at first, then perhpas if it works out, we could increase it to a couple times a week or every other day.
Other than that, there is posting general topics for discussion. I'm trying to think of things that can sustain the site between podcasts. But on the other hand, I don't want the Watercooler to be TOO regimented, since it is supposed to be a place for us to just chill and have fun conversations. We'll all have a better idea once we can see the new Version Vibrant features in action. Right now my brain is still trapped in MyO-mode.
Again, if anyone else has ideas, feel free to message me about them.
Allamorph: I can't imagine losing a kitty, but I guess I have to get used to the idea o_O
Heh, sounds a bit like one of my sister's cats. The poor thing was always tumbling over and running into things. Turns out she had eye problems.
TrigunCat4: From my observations, it generally takes 2 years for a series to be released in box set from the time the first individual disc is released. Even if this figure is slightly off, it definitely takes a long time for sure, a lot longer than I think it should. With a disc coming out roughly every couple of months, it takes 12-14 months for a 6 or 7 volume series to be released disc by disc. Then it takes several more months after it's complete for a box set.
Since I don't have the patience to wait that long, I have bought most of my anime one disc at a time.
Most of the box sets I own are of series that were already out by the time I became interested, or had the time and money to finally buy them.
TwistedCyberChick: I have considered Netflix from time to time.
Somegirl: Actually the cat is almost 17, 2-4 years is the estimated time the vet has given that he has left.
