Opening[edit]

It feels like the opening of the article is too long. I suggest moving the information from the second paragragh in the Red vs. Blue section or taking it out all together, as there's a main article for that. MGray98 (talk) 22:54, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

I agree, the opening includes more information about Red vs. Blue than it does just Rooster Teeth - SilentDan297 16:21, 24 June 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by SilentDan297 (talkcontribs)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was moved. --BDD (talk) 23:31, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

Rooster Teeth ProductionsRooster Teeth – The company is almost if not always referred to as simply Rooster Teeth. There are no other companies called Rooster Teeth, and the disambiguation of "Productions" is entirely unnecessary. Most of all, when searching "Rooster Teeth" on Google, 28.2 million search results come out of it. However, when searching "Rooster Teeth Productions", a mere 993,000 results come out of it. Obviously, simply Rooster Teeth is more used. Not to mention that most of the links for Rooster Teeth Productions also show up when searching for Rooster Teeth. Short version: It's just unnecessary. Corvoe (speak to me) 03:22, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

Proposed merge with Matt Hullum[edit]

I propose this article be merged with Rooster Teeth Productions. This man has no real notability outside of the company, so unless notability should be proven, he should redirect there. Beerest355 Talk 22:51, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

He does have some notability, he has appeared in several hollywood films not associated with Rooster Teeth. I guess it would ultimately depend on whether or not someone comes looking here because they saw him in those movies, or because of his work with Rooster Teeth.--Licourtrix (talk) 22:52, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
I think there's really no reason to merge, he has done other work outside of Rooster Teeth and he should deserve his own page.--Ral539 (talk) 12:06, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
His work outside of RT is almost exclusively related to VFX management, not acting or appearing in movies, and I wouldn't say notable on it's own. He wasn't even the VFX director of the movies he worked on. The sole source on his page (IMDB) lists the vast majority of his work as RT related. Support Rhowryn (talk) 13:39, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
It has been proposed several times to merge all RT related articles into the Rooster Teeth article. Frankly, Hullum should have enough notability to warrant his own article, there just aren't enough sources for it. For now, support. Corvoe (speak to me) 16:36, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
support Also Barbara Dunkelman Hats off to the marketing team at Rooster Teeth, but WP isn't here to be a promo channel for very minor production companies. Andy Dingley (talk) 11:37, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
Support - Agreed; Barbara is not really notable enough to have her own page. TYRULES6 (talk) 22:47, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
"Support" - Matt Hullum is now the Rooster Teeth President and plays Sarge in RVB — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.6.90.55 (talk) 17:25, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Rooster Teeth[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Rooster Teeth's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "anime":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 11:26, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Proposed Community/Culture/Website Section[edit]

I'm suggesting a new section detailing the history and role the community site and its members have played over the years. RoosterTeeth.com is home to a large (over 1.5 million registered users) and longstanding (since 2004) online community. Members of the company have emphasized the importance of maintaining their own community many times, on their podcast[1][2][3][4][5][6], in journals[7][8][9][10][11][12], videos and interviews.[13][14][15][16][17] There's no less than a dozen people (Intern Blaine Gibson, Community Manager Barbara Dunkelman, Wed developer Ben King, Composers Nico Audy-Rowland and Jeff Williams, Achievement Hunter's Caleb Denecour, Ray Narvaez Jr, Brandon Light and Kdin Jenzen, RoosterTeeth Animated Adventures creator Jordan Cwierz and RWBY co-creator Kerry Shawcross) presently working at the company directly culled through the community. RTX was founded for their community, after at least a half dozen RT/RvB fan or community events (RvBTO, RvBCanWest, RvBUK, RTPhilly, RooTeeth, RvBMN, RvBCA, RvBTX, SideQuest and more) occurred around the world. Notable people to come from the community include Kent Nichols and Gavin Free. In addition, community members have provided all sorts of content to different productions over the years. Thanks to twitter, tumblr and reddit, the community has grown and become more diverse than ever. The company and community are inextricably linked and since it's confirmed that a new version of the community site is coming, I expect that relationship to continue well into the future. Thoughts? Count3D (talk) 04:50, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

If it can be sourced then be bold and go for it. The RT community makes up alot of what RT is.--Dcheagletalkcontribs 06:10, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
