I like the idea of a poll for the videos, but I'm fine either way, really!


RE: discussions. Maybe after giving answers to the provided questions, people could come up with their own questions to keep the discussion active.

I agree that we need to find new ways to keep the discussion flowing and I like @glitterintheair's idea! Maybe if we all come up with more questions, the discussion will flow more easily! I guess the "problem" is that there are not a lot of us participating but I don't think we can do anything about it?

I think not - I mean, we both advertise the watch fests in the main thread, but the interest is low - which is totally fine! This is still mainly meant to be a thing for us on IDB to enjoy and no one should ever feel forced into it <3
I think we may have more people participating now that the watch fest will last the entire day! :)

TIME TO VOTE FOR VIDEOS FOR SUNDAY! CLICK ME

You can choose multiple answers and we will watch the first few videos!
Remember our next watch fest is IDB only and it will take place this Sunday, January 27th :)

Hey everyone!
Our watch fest is tomorrow, Sunday, January 27th!
It will last the whole day, meaning that you can pop in whenever. I will make a separate thread for it in a minute.

Changes in this watch fest
- More focus on timestamps! If you enjoy it, make timestamps and then post them in the appropriate forum:
- Discussion: I will post the first set of questions. If/when you reply to them, try to add a question of your own!
- If you're the next in line to reply, make sure you check what questions other people have posted! :)

Videos we're watching
According to the poll, the winners were Trying To Live My Truth, HAVING A BLAST - Dan and Phil play: Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes, and Dan and Phil AND DOGS!
Good job picking one from each channel :ribena:

Our next rabbit watch fest is this weekend - Sunday, February 3rd!
To allow more people to join in without missing out on any other phandom activities that happen on Sundays (like the word war chats), we added a third watch time. We thought of getting rid of 7 PM altogether, but we previously held a vote, and people like the 7 PM - so we're not removing it, but adding a third time at 10 PM UTC.

So from now on, our rabbit watch fests will be on every other Sunday, at 1 PM, 7 PM and 10 PM UTC. I hope this suits you all :)

We're voting for videos to watch! You can vote on twitter by clicking here :)

Our next watch fest is tomorrow, Sunday, February 3rd! This time we're hosting three showings: 1 PM, 7 PM and 10 PM UTC.

This is our rabb.it watch fest, which means there will be no IDB thread for it. Join us here: https://www.rabb.it/PhandomWatch

We'll be watching some iconic joint Deppy vids, such as the Blindfolded Makeup Challenge! Each watch party will be different, because we will vote on what to watch next :)

Reblogs and retweets are super welcome as usual! Hope to see you there <3

Here's a reminder that our rabbit watch fest is tomorrow/today if you're a night owl like me! Sunday, Feb 17th. Three showings: 1 PM, 7 PM, 10 PM UTC.
We're watching baking videos, and the audience will vote on which specific videos to watch :)

Rabbit made some (really dumb) changes to the way it works, so we won't use our regular link to watch - I will post the working link tomorrow before our first showing, and it will hopefully stay valid throughout the day.

Hope to see you there! :cakescene:

We held a poll on twitter, and decided on the theme for our next watch fest (Sunday, March 3rd, 1 PM, 7 PM and 10 PM UTC)
We'll be watching ~Ancient Dan and Phil videos~ on rabbit! If Dan happens to upload, we can all watch it live too!
The link to the stream will be posted on Sunday, because rabb.it had a stupid update.

As always, reblogs and retweets are welcome <3

Hey everyone!
Update - we haven't given up on IDB watch fests! We just needed to take a little time to figure out where to take this project.

The fact is, the last few IDB-only watch fests were mostly made up of myself, @lesterchuu and a few more regulars. The threads were very quiet. We don't want anyone to feel forced to participate in these, but we also put in quite a bit of time into them, so it would be nice if the interest was higher.
Because of that, we're going to be introducing some fun changes that will hopefully encourage discussion <3

- We will pick more controversial/interesting videos to watch
- We will post more questions, and try to make them more interesting :)
- The IDB-only watch fest will now happen once a month - twice a month seems like too much
- It will run for the entire week to allow for more conversation
- We will include more than just main channel vids. Side channels, SAP, radio, even tweets and instagrams. We will take all of that into consideration when discussing.

Our next IDB-only watch fest will begin on Sunday, March 24th.
The video theme will be Cute Phan Videos vs 2012-2013 era videos, liveshows etc.
Basically we will compare Dan and Phil at their most natural, sweet and open to the darkest times in the Phandom.


We're looking for video suggestions & general feedback on the changes!
Please post here and remember, :love1: we also have a rabbit watch fest on March 16th-17th :love1: - most likely a weekend long stream of DAPG!

I approve the changes!

2012-2013 era videos? Oh boy this is gonna be painful and I've watched very few videos from that time because I'm not sure I could handle more but you know what? B R I N G I T O N. I wanna face my fears.

Quoting this from the main thread :)
We will soon announce more details about our March 24th IDB watch fest, so stay tuned! Meanwhile I hope to see you there for the super long gaming stream :)

I'd also like to #spon our next rabbit watch fest - a 48 hr stream of DAPG videos! We're starting this Saturday, March 16th, at 7 am UTC, and will stream for 48 hours straight. I hope to see some of you popping in the chat :love2:
Shoutout to @lesterchuu for not only sacrificing sleep for this to happen, but also making even more super cute artwork <3
Reblogs and retweets are awesome, and if you do, I'll bake you a cookie. (I will. You just won't receive it. But I'll eat it in your name)

Today is the day of our IDB Watch Fest!
The theme will be 2012 vs 2016-2018, and this watch fest will run for the entire week.
We will post a set of videos, tweets, blog posts etc every day and discuss them. This might possibly happen in the main thread, but I'm not sure about that yet.

Since we still have a few things to work out, the first set will be posted in the evening, so stay tuned :)

Updates: How does this work exactly?

Each day, we will release a single topic (correlating to the theme) followed by a couple of questions that you guys can discuss and dissect. You can still pick and choose which set of questions you would like to discuss, so don't feel pressured to complete all - unless you feel compelled to!

As opposed to our previous Sundays, we will now also be using other forms of media (videos, tweets, posts, etc.) or from sources other than their main channel videos (SAP, radio show, vyou, younow, 3rd party articles discussing DnP, etc.) to expand the discussion, so long as it stays relevant to the topic. You can use these as references to your post. Some of these media may or may not be from Dan or Phil themselves so things like tweets/posts made by fans (ie. theories, opinions, or rumours) should be taken with a grain of salt.

That said, if it helps you explain or express your thoughts, feel free to cite other medias along with your posts as well. Also, since we encourage discussions, it is inevitable that sometimes people can have different opinions so we just want to remind people to be respectful with their words. The mods will be watching :)
