    Feel free to ask any on-topic questions after you've read the post.

    What is a watchalong?
    It's basically watching a synchronized online stream with people in a virtual room that allows you to chat among each other. Sounds strange but fun, somehow? They are a fun way to interact and spend time together.

    To be upfront and to prevent false expectations: watchalongs tend to be more of a socializing thing. It can get hard to keep up with the chat and stream at the same time. Just keep that in mind when you join, and have fun.

    There've been 7 watchalong events in the past in Konoha Ryokan where this community project officially started happening. If you are curious, take a look , around posts #500 or #600.​

    Spoiler: Watchalong post example
    KONOHA RYOKAN WATCHALONG #5 —



    1. We are watching , ep. #1–4

    2. You DON'T need an account to join the watchalong and it is free.
    Just pick a name and join the room by clicking on the link below.
    Feel free to use your NF username.

    3. If asked for access to your camera/microphone,
    just cancel & advance. Do not accept.

    4. Start time is about 15 minutes from when this post has been posted.


    JOIN THE ROOM HERE:


    huehuehuehue :narustars


    Spoiler: Room, stream and list of watchers

    Spoiler: 1


    Spoiler: 2


    Spoiler: 3




    To organize a watchalong we need to find out a couple of things:

    1. What to watch?
    Usually we nominate, discuss, then decide on a series through consensus.
    Depending on what we watch, we can also decide on the size of each watchalong batch, how many episodes we want to watch in one go.

    2. When to watch?
    To determine this, we need to know what everyone's timezone is and when you are free for anything between 1–3 hours to join the event.​
    Spoiler: – this will help us coordinate time

    3. Who is host?
    The host posts the watchalong OP, coordinates and streams for everyone to watch. is my service of choice but that is because it is subjectively the best I've come across til now. Downside: Only 15 people fit in there at the same time.​

    My long-term goal is to have watchalong events in many different timezones. Don't really care if that means having several events during the week or rotating every few months but we should definitely try to stay super-organized to not get lost.

    1 series = 1 project
    1 movie = 1 project

    If I forgot to explain something and you are still confused, let me know.
    :supercat

    From what I see, everyone wants to see instead of the Madoka Magica movies , , .

    I'm in the mood for comedy.

    We're lynching Xiammes if he doesn't deliver.

    Also, you should post a tl;dr version. I'm CERTAIN you can summarize all that to a few key points :catfish

    We generally focus on more lighthearted shows, something that will start a lot of discussion and laughs. If we want something more serious, we can do the Madoka movies on a Saturday.

    I am open for suggestions. Let's give this another 5 days for discussion. Those interested in participating will have final say and we'll decide on what to watch by voting. (Without a poll, I think) I will just look what option you chose in your last post when I gather the votes.


    I wonder if it wouldn't be better to agree on a time first before deciding on what to watch. :catthinks

    I won't be able to be host for the next sets of weeks but I might drop by.

    We aren't remotely close to ready for a watchalong in two days considering the section is still new and I think many people haven't familiarized themselves with this idea, yet. I also thought it would be nice to have the next set of watchalongs at a different time.

    Let's not rush this. :catprone

    Creeping out from the underwood to post this.

    Your wish be my command.

    TL;DR version

    Level 1
    1. Go to UserCP → Edit Options, look which timezone (GMT) you are, post that in this thread + weekday(s) and timeframe in which you are free for a minimum 1h.

    2. Optional: Nominate something to watch.

    3. We decide on when and what to watch.

    4. Be there, Enjoy. (Host may remind you via PM.)

    5. Optional: Repeat step 4 until series is over.


    Optional Level 2
    1. Complete level 1.

    2. Wanna be host? Let heartsutra know.​

    I am generally available anytime during the week, however Fridays and sometimes Saturdays are a terrible time after 5pm est. If we could get this started around 3pm est on those days, that would work out amazing.

    Availability
    I'm always on and off and highly flexible during all weekdays while I'm on summer break. I prefer evening hours, something between 5pm and 11pm as a starting time. I'm GMT+1/Germany.

    What to watch
    I'm fine with all options presented up until now, Highschool seems to be the way this is heading.

    Remember that we could technically watch anything, movies as well – it doesn't even need to be anime. Heck, we can watch Kdrama too if you want to go there and find a crowd that's willing to join you.



    This is where we were at a few months back:

    Edit.
    My brain was obviously still frozen when I sent PMs to people. Just noticed the embarrassing, half-finished sentence I sent. Hngh. Sorry.

    Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays are the best days for me as of the moment. This is bound to change in the future since I'll be picking up other employment, but this is the information I can give.
