The Return of the Transfomers Watchalong
#1
Back in the day this was always a blast. Because I’m feeling nostalgic who would be up for reviving this tradition.

It’s been a few years and I have forgotten how incompetent Ultra Magnus is.

My God yes. It's been too damned long.

I had this on in the background with commentary a couple weeks ago. Flint Dille is so callous about the decision to kill off Prime.

We created a Discord for three reasons:

1) It's primarily a voice chat program that has made gaming with CHUD/TC folks much easier.

2) A refuge in case the transition went sideways

3) It has VOICE CHAT.

Since it's inception we have had a Watch-A-Long voice channel ready for just such an occasion. Discord has a desktop application as well as mobile.

We had a fun little Oscar Snark-A-Long the other evening and would love to see the voice channel used for future Watchalongs.

To add support for the use of Discord...

Trouble City's message boards smartly prevents a user (at least me) from submitting posts one immediately after another.

I don't know if that's a good thing or not for a watch-along, but it doesn't sound all that fun to me.

Sounds like Discord is the way forward then

We can also make a #watchalong text channel so those who can't/don't want to participate via voice can still do so at the same time.

So we're going to basically do a conference call?

Depending on how many people come onboard, it seems like the text channel is the most reliable bet.

Talking to people during the Oscars was fun, but with too many people, it feels like most of the time would be dedicated to dealing with technical issues (audio delays, weird clicking noises, etc).

And TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE isn't long!

That is one way to describe the voice channel, yes.

The audio delays we experienced in the Oscar one was due to station delays. As long as folks started the film close enough together it should be too much of an issue I would wager.

And if SOMEONE uses a proper mic there shouldn't be any clicking.   Rolleyes

We've never used VOIP software to give a movie the MST3K treatment before. It's obvious, in hindsight.

Won't this end up being a dozen people just talking over each other? That's how all my conference calls with three or more people at work go.

I'm sure Chewers are polite enough to wait for their chance to speak.

What if some of us have eerily similar voices? We'd be like "Who the hell just said that??".

Will I have to affect a local Rhode Island accent to distinguish myself?
