Quickly addressing things in the fandom that’s happened over the past 72 hours.
There was a compiled list of criticisms in LBD/PD/EA land and I address them in this hangout here.
and more organized in this google doc here.
To clarify: because I’m seeing some claims that I had asked for compilations to be crowd sourced, that is untrue. It was originally intended to be an offline private one to one discussion.
But since the compiled lists were put together by concerned fans, I took the time to address and acknowledge them.
I think the most immediate thing to note is that Emma Approved will be going on hiatus at the end of month. There will be no EA episodes in January. No decision has been made on expanded content. Also this break is not a vacation… it is time for the team to reorganize. The hiatus was not in response to fan criticism, but a response to us being totally overwhelmed keeping the show going.
In general, if you don’t find my answers or actions satisfactory in the doc (or hangout) at this time, I am sorry, I tried. I feel I’ve done everything realistically possible for one person living a completely unhealthy and unbalanced life (100% toward his work) to do regarding this.
Will there be changes? yeah there will be. Changes, adjustments, etc. Will you like them? Well that will be up to you when they happen. I’d rather the changes be reflected in actions rather than words so I’m not going to list out any “plans of action.”
I’ll be stepping back out of the fannish spaces after tonight. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens.
I do appreciate all of you who care about the shows. It’ll probably be the death of me, but I do try to please everyone —- which is impossible.
