In the business world, they want people to analyse what's going on in the external environment, keeping an eye out for things like political malfeasance. KoopaTV does that all the time... just not out of concern for our own survival.
...And maybe we should've, since now we're stuck at 3 articles a week (besides this week, thanks to President Donald John Trump) thanks to President Donald John Trump's hate-mongering and bad international relationships.
(Not that we regret our endorsement of him.)
That's been the big KoopaTV thing for February, but for the foreseeable future, it's the new normal. Which means it's a good opportunity for some changes, as seen below:
Consolidated KoopaTV's Pages
If you haven't noticed, as of publishing, KoopaTV looks a bit different. (And I'm speaking purely for the desktop version, since the mobile version is garbage and hopeless regardless.)
It used to look like this:
|S-So many pages! Oh no!|
But NOW it looks like... this:
|...Everything is consolidated now.|
Oh, and the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program is hyperlinked right there, too.
Cleaner? Yes. Much cleaner. Now there's one less line to go through!
There's one downside, though: These critical pages were always just one click away. Now? They're two clicks away, tucked within the overarching themes of Informational and Interactive.
There's some pages that might want to just be floating there at the top (like The Wonderful 1237 currently gets to do), such as the Guest Posts page. Who knows how many less guest posts KoopaTV will now receive because it isn't immediately made obvious we offer them? Then people will click KoopaTV Informational Pages and still not see anything mentioning Guest Posts there, so they'll give up. It's REALLY in KoopaTV Interactive Pages, though, because writing a guest post is an interactive activity.
So maybe I'll float up Guest Posts, but where does it end? I could justify ANYTHING being floated to the top, and we'll be right back where we started.
Since I'm clueless, I'll ask you guys. And that segues nicely into the next heading...
New KoopaTV Feedback Forms and Quizzes!
KoopaTV Feedback Form Part IX and KoopaTV Quiz Part IX are now available to take. The Feedback Form includes important questions, such as about consolidated pages, games, and KoopaTV's reduction in article quantity.
And, as usual, the Quiz is fun.
Filling these out will get you a big bunch of points for KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program Round 13... which... I haven't announced yet. WHOOPS. And in order to do that, I better conclude Round 12. Okay, okay, my segue to get the Feedback Forms and Quizzes in made me skip ahead of myself, so let's course-correct:
KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program Round 12 RESULTS!
Who will be winning a Nintendo eShop code worth $10? Let's look at the results:
- Nandin Lopez — 76 points
- Kody B. — 59 points
- Lheticus Videre — 42 points
- Ray — 36 points
- Charssie God — 22 points
Announcing Round 13 of the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program!
And here is Round 13. It's just like Round 12. It begins March 1 and ends April 29 at 11:59 PM Eastern. The prize is tentatively a $10 Nintendo eShop code, assuming they'll still be selling those in a post-Switch-launch world. I don't actually have anything left to give out in my possession, so I'll have to go out and buy something before April 29. I can manage that, right?
No scoring changes for Round 13, though maybe I should think of some due to there being less new articles to comment on. That's definitely affected and depressed the point totals up above.
Top 3 Recommended KoopaTV Articles of February 2017!
Speaking of less new articles, since we've gone from 5 new articles a week to 3, it makes sense that every month for these newsletters we go from the Top 5 Recommended articles to the Top 3. Gotta keep it proportional, right? I shouldn't make the selections easier by comparatively having to be less selective!
So, here are the top 3 in chronological order:
- Nintendo Blew 5 Million Dollars on a Nintendo Switch Super Bowl Ad
- Many New Pokémon, or Mixing New & Old?
- Pocket Card Jockey: Mysteriously Satisfying Mechanics
Every KoopaTV article is worth reading, by the way.
KoopaTV's Legal Woes
There is no update since our update on the DMCA claim against KoopaTV from “Nate Bihldorff”, so we'll consider it fake news.
And with that, this newsletter shall end. We hope to be graced with your participation.
One great way of participation is to share KoopaTV with all of your friends, or at least some of them. Maybe even share it with random people! You'll be sure to make new friends that way, or at least some interesting conversations.
