Re: Adventures in Odyssey Club Rebrand

I like the look of the new design overall, and some of the features seem like they should be helpful. I don't know as much about them as I'd like, not being a Club member. That said, as a non-current-Club-member and someone who spends a lot of time thinking about design, I see a few things that seem...

Re: Announcement: Bren and bookworm continuing as admins

I may be slightly biased, but I thought it was a good term. ;) Here comes a wall of text! Commenting in response to Bren... what the last few terms have shown is that it's difficult to do the job justice when you're at our life stage. The experience factor means that these teams should be better tha...

Re: Official AIO Comic Strip!

What's perhaps most interesting about the strip is that it is authorized as a canon work, inasmuch as it doesn't contradict the radio show. I think this is the first time that something other than the show or an explicit, deliberate statement by the show creators on an issue has been part of the can...

Re: Summer Celebration: ToO Game Night!

I'm definitely not available Sundays and Wednesday nights, I'm generally not available Friday nights, and I'm less likely to be available on Saturdays. Other than that, my schedule (for now) tends to be relatively open. If this changes in the near future, the effect will probably be to restrict my d...

Re: Summer Celebration: ToO Game Night!

I know that for me, Sunday is generally a bad day for events. The starting time overlaps closely with the time that our church evening service begins. I was a little disappointed it was scheduled for Sunday, although I thought it might still attract a small crowd anyway. I'm sorry to hear the event ...

Re: Chatroom GameBot

Technically, as far as I'm aware, GameBot has never had Mafia/Werewolf; the Mafia channel was a separate thing. I think there was a time when they were both online (in different channels), but that was a long time ago now and the Mafia bot died. If there's a demand for this, it's possible bookworm c...

Re: Summit Lake?

It may be complicated. In "Ice Fishing", it's, of course, referred to as "Summit Lake". But in Album 53, according to the AIO Update blog , Monty claims he went ice fishing with his grandfather at Trickle Lake. Without having the guide or any other information to lead me, my best...

Re: Avery Awards 2022

I liked the Olivia arc best, and voted accordingly. I think the only time I voted for anything else was 'Best Sound Design'; I think you could make a solid argument for one of the Olivia episodes over that, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt since I know it was a sound-heavy episode. I picked Ke...

Re: Personal Ranking Systems

You could say (and it'd likely be an understatement) that I've thought about this issue, enough that I felt the need to make a website implementing a solution for it* . It is hard to fairly and consistently review, much less rate, episodes. I feel readers get much more information by reading your th...

Re: 931-933: As Buck Would Have It, Parts 1, 2, and 3

I thought it was a pretty good series, although it seemed a bit railroaded, more focused on getting the desired results (there's Meltsner/Buck drama, Buck learns about his father, then they make up and things are great, we learn facts about the characters along the way) than the events being realis...

Re: Morrie and Suzu

Although it has been discussed (and critically bashed) in detail before, on numerous threads, I thought it was worth taking the time to try to provide a brief rundown of the key points of the controversy, along with some relevant background and chronological details, for those who haven't listened t...

A Turning Point

Fellow Town members, When you bind yourself to a work, and later feel compelled to make a decision that could be construed as reneging, it bears giving an account of your reasoning. You can probably see that I've been a little less than active over the last few days, contrary to our expressed goal. ...

Did somebody change the order of topics in the Episode Reviews sub-forum? The new order is unclear. I know that I appreciated the regular most-recent order. It is worth noting that you can change it back, although the interface to do so isn't especially discoverable. If you click on the menu to the...
