No Readout Day: Feedback

May not hurt to get feedback from the patrons in the chat from the no readout day we had. What did you like about ti? What did you not like?
Yeah...let's make this current shall we?

I like this idea, thanks for posting it.

If you ask me, as the creator, I thought it really went well, and met expectations. Chat was normalized, and really what I had hoped to see. Impressed with the board for this today; good showing all. Of course, if you feel otherwise about its execution and reality, I'd like to know about it.

I'd say it was an alright experiment. One of the things I liked about it is that it reduced the amount of messages in the log, because normally when the show is read out, the log tends to get bigger the longer you're in the chatroom. Without the readout, the log becomes less cluttered with messages, plus it's a bit easier to notice what people are saying; so that's an advantage.

Another thing I liked was the predictability of pricing games. If you're watching the show on a feed, you would be able to see where the player goes on stage before the game is revealed, and you could more easily predict the game. But if you didn't have a feed, it'd be harder to try and guess what game is next, with no hint as to where Drew and the player were, which is pretty fun and challenging. It was also nice to go a day without a chatroom poll or SuperMatch's "Price Was Right" game, since those are pretty regular activities (heck, everything that was restricted today could be considered a regular activity :P).

So, yeah, this was a fairly good experiment. Hopefully this can happen again another time.

I enjoy things like the chat poll, so I missed that in all honesty. But this was an interesting change of pace.
