FEATURES: just wanted to put that in all caps so people can see it... but uh if anybody thinks of anything cool to add to the website just let me know... im willing to try anything
Feature Req: first off, thanks for making OGJRE! I use it exclusively to listen to JRE now. on the the req: Can we block a particular user so we don't see their comments at all? As it is, there is one user who basically shits on everything, and makes posting in or even reading the comments too exhausting to be worth it. It's like someone takes a giant mentally ill shit on the doorstep of the comments sections every time an episode drops, and if the rest of the community wants to step into the comments, we have to expend energy on avoiding the puddle of crap. I can only speak for myself, but I don't think I am alone in avoiding the comments section because of the (bot, troll, mentally ill person, whatever it is) camped out there. If we can block them, we can take back the comments section and maybe it will start to get used again.

The people that value what you did here are drawn from a pool of JRE listeners, largely. Anything you do to ease the friction between a person chasing Joe Rogan across his different platforms, activities and debacles will be welcome. But there are others in here. People that came for what you did, and not for Joe specifically. You have ogpodweb.com set up for us, so we mostly see that. And it is not very functional at the moment. It seems to be the same software and stack as ogjre.com but not caught up to where that is in terms of being usable or even working correctly. I used to watch you closely, when it was about the part I cared about, you were playing with community building and public-access tools around conversational podcasting and I loved everything about that. But now you must have been 99.99% playing here and not over at OGPODWEB, and as much as I like Joe I did not come here for Rogan. I don't think you can make Rogan better. You can untangle and streamline the timeline of the episodes, the interesting points like lists of books and whatnot mentioned, you can map and taxonomize the individual episodes with chapters or segments. If Spotify ever figures out it's video game so that you can change streaming parameters like quality and camera angle while watching, then sure, you can shave some friction off the corporate monstrosity of a thing that that would probably be. What I'm saying is you probably have spent a time sufficient to be knowledgeable in this problem space and have arrived at the obvious solutions. Now it's time to improve those solutions, and you have the domain knowledge to tackle that, one at a time. Set goals, reach targets. Stop looking for things to do, for things to explore. Apply yourself. There are two pillars of your turtle that need immediate attention. Making money, the survival of this project into the next two years of it's life. And community, including folks like me that would like to talk to people that listen to Sam Harris about something Lex Friedman was asking Bret Weinstein, all while watching Jordan Peterson. Me! Me, me me? Notice me? Alright, enough of that. <3
