Hi folks! Here is our Eighteenth Mini Transcript update. Update 31/01/2022: We are working our way through Rusty Quill Gaming transcripts doing some checks and making some corrections.

Rusty Quill Launches a Brand-New Website!

We’re delighted to announce our brand-new website! This long-overdue update has all the same Rusty Quill content you love, but with a new user-friendly layout and style. Designed to be a hub of all things Rusty Quill, the new website will now grow as we do; as we create new RQ Originals and expand the RQ Network and add transcripts each week, it’ll remain easy-to-navigate and full of RQ information. We’ve also taken steps to improve page accessibility, though there will be further accessibility modifications over time. We have not implemented these immediately to ensure that the new website was working properly before we introduced this additional accessibility functionality. If you have any feedback or concerns, please email mail@rustyquill.com.   When we launched our new branding in May last year, we knew that we wanted a website to match it, but a website is more than just looks; it’s about functionality. We wanted the new rustyquill.com to be a one-stop area for fans and creators alike to easily listen to shows, find resources including transcripts, catch up with the latest news, and shop for merchandise.   Speaking of transcripts, we’ve been working round the clock to get over 500 transcripts ready for this launch and are very proud that we’ve managed to get many of these transcripts sourced, checked, and formatted to date. These include transcripts for Rusty Quill Gaming, The Magnus Archives, Stellar Firma, Inexplicables and Enthusigasm. We are actively still working on transcripts, and you may notice that over the next few weeks some are switched out, added or updated – our focus has been on ensuring that there is something available, even if it’s not quite perfect. Due to the complexity of the transcription, as well as the recent reformatting, these transcripts may include some specific errors. You can use the error form here to highlight any issues or raise any concerns. You can find transcript links on every show’s page – so, for example, if you’re…

Closure of The Rusty Quill Official Discord Server

(Originally Posted by Hattie 15/9/2021) We have previously stated that we have paused the Discord whilst we made decisions about whether to continue with it, and if so, how to make sure that it is a safe place where we can take care of everybody who works for us. We have now concluded that the RQO server will remain closed for at least the next six months, at which point we will re-assess whether we can open a new server with a different format and management. It may well be that we do not open a new server. It is impossible at this stage to predict what may have changed between now and March and so we cannot make any promises. As a result of this decision, the server will no longer be available to view by the general public within 48 hours of this announcement. To provide some context, the server grew beyond our wildest expectations in a very short amount of time, and unfortunately, we were not fully prepared for all of the ramifications of such growth. Despite our best efforts, there have been ongoing issues within the server for a few years. We wished to keep it going to provide a place for our community to interact whilst we worked on better solutions but it has been clear for some time that it is not possible for us to continue with the server in its current form. With this in mind, we have been exploring alternative options. This is not just because of the burden placed on our moderation team, but due to several incidents where the people who work for or with us have been harassed…

Hi folks! Here is our Seventeenth Mini Transcript update. Update 24/01/2022: We are now working solidly with a goal to release as soon as possible. A few things came up during QA stages (some missing MAG pages, a couple of Stellar Firma transcripts filed under the wrong name etc.) Despite this we are rather confident that we will release 76 Stellar Firma, 200 The Magnus Archives and 218 Rusty Quill Gaming transcripts in February. We are working our way through RQG transcripts doing some checks and making some corrections. We have almost finished transcription on the pilot Enthusigasm season. We are nearing completion on The Magnus Archives and Stellar Firma transcripts with completion looking likely this week or next. Whilst we have been working out these few gremlins we have found the time to update content warnings. You can expect another update Next Monday. The Rusty Quill team

This is the standard we intent to maintain for all future RQ original releases.

Transcripts Mini Update 12

Hi folks! Here is our Twelfth weekly transcript update. Update 13/12/2021: Enthusigasm continues to release on time with transcripts. Our chosen transcription company Continues to make great progress and should successfully have delivered us all 218 episodes of Rusty Quill Gaming before the end of January though we will update if there are any changes.

Rusty Quill Mini Transcript Update 11

Hi folks! Here is our Eleventh weekly transcript update. Update 06/12/2021: Enthusigasm continues to release on time with transcripts. Our chosen transcription company now has all 218 episodes of Rusty Quill Gaming, and over 160 are completed and received. Whilst these transcripts are generally good, we do want to take the time to let you know that there are likely to be some small errors, particularly related to gaming jargon and confusion over who is speaking (especially during cross talk). We will be releasing the transcripts in January but we will endeavor to make amendments and improvements after the initial public launch as errors are identified. However, the transcripts are high quality and the error rate is still well within the generally accepted range for paid transcription work on complex improvised speech of this kind. We’ll publish another post on transcripts next week, and as always, we really appreciate your support. The Rusty Quill team
