Our Founder/Owner Is Getting Close To Returning!

            After the post that Chris did yesterday, I can truly tell that he is ready to come back  to his role as Founder/Owner. It has been a long coming for him to return as our Owner as he has been off for a week and a half. I think the trip up north definitely did him so good and he's finally realized it is time for him to come back and run the day to day operations with me helping him as well. He has to realize he's got the team behind him 150% I am not sure when he will be returning as he's not given any hints whatsoever but he is showing signs he wants to be more involved with ChrisBOnTheWeb as he's been off for sometime now but just cannot tell you guys when that is the question. However he's not being clear when he is coming back but he's starting to realize he needs ChrisBOnTheWeb in his life. It's become a big part of him and his life. Something must of clicked while he was away yesterday. 


            However I can say he is getting close to returning just I wish he would tell us when whether it is next week (Monday) or a week Monday he hasn't said anything to me as of when I wrote this post for the day so I couldn't tell you and probably an announcement will be made by Friday at the latest. We will see but I think he is going to make an announcement today to the staff that he is returning but we can only hope he is on his way back and we will be a full strength of a team again. I can be honest I saw him show some more interest. For those who didn't know he was feeling like he's lost all his interest in what he loves to do and I think it has to do with the fact that this virus and him not able to go to events this year and he's just having no interest in the blogs or podcasts but that all seems to change with him making that post yesterday which brought his spirits up again. We'll all know by Friday morning at the most what he has decided to do.

Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast Renewed!

             Well, well, well... Long time no see. It has been a while since making blog content for you guys as our community manager has been taking the reigns of CBOTW in the last week but him and I spoke just before this post was started to be written. Jim wanted me to be the one to tell you guys this news that just happened in the last 18 - 20 hours. The news is that Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast has once again been renewed for another year which means another year of Power Rangers Content. Which ones will we be covering or seasons we will be covering in the new year? Well here is it:

- Power Rangers: SPD (Spring 2021)

- Power Rangers: Mystic Force (Spring 2021)

- Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive (Summer 2021)

- Power Rangers: Jungle Fury (Summer 2021)

- Power Rangers: RPM (Fall 2021)

- Power Rangers: Samurai (Fall 2021)

             

               There are no dates just approximations to when it will be out as right now we are still currently in this season still as we got Season 10, 11 and 12 (Wild Force, Ninja Storm & Dino Thunder) to still cover but to be clear: this is just confirmation that we are continuing on with this podcast. Once we have more information on the schedule for 2021, I or even Jim will be announcing. Now it will depend when I plan on returning as an Owner but we will see but one of blog staff will be the one that announces it but I should be back well before. Anyways that is my announcement and quite a surprise to hear from the Boss Man after a week of not posting up on the website personally huh.... I thought, I'd surprise you guys and maybe I need to do that once and a while, during my leave of absence so you guys do not have to worry. Hope you all enjoyed this post and I will talk to you all soon, I miss you guys and hope you all are well.

Let's Try This Chat Thing Yet Again! SMH!

           This was all Chris's idea in the way of chat of returning to the website and I had a couple of ideas which I will not get into as we're in the early stages of the chat's return and we do not want to rush it. However it is back up and running and yes guest chat is an option for right now but if the spam and disrespect returns then we will be locking down the chat once again and we are not afraid to do that whatsoever.  There is no holding back and we wanna grow the website and build this community. This is one of the reasons we brought it back was to start growing the community and the website. Now the views are up this is a great time to expand on the website so we made a few tweaks to the menu bar and the About is under it's own drop down menu to make way for the chatroom which was released right away.


           The chatroom can be found on ChrisBOnTheWeb.com/p/community.html and staff is around typically during the daytime but sometimes we will hide out in the chatroom from time to time but depends if we are awake we may answer but keep checking back in our community chat. We hope one of these days if we can get the chat really busy that we can start doing Community Nights on our chatroom but that is part of Phase 3 of the plan as we are only in Phase 1 which is growing the community. We also will be looking for Moderators but in due time. The Only Moderator we have right now is LarryR82 as he is a former staff member of The Video Projects Team and ChrisBOnTheWeb and he has Moderator status on our chatroom and is around when he can be on. Let's regrow this community and grow this website even further!

ChrisBOnTheWeb Weekly Updates [09-27-2020]

                Another week is here and our very last update for the month of September as we head into a brand new month this week. It's been a very busy week as we finish up notes and Chris's lack of sleep during the entire night and Chris gone on leave a week ago which I will have an update on him as he's been staying in touch with me through messanger and Skype. Here are the updates:

Website: As I said on Twitter last night we are on pace for a 9k view for the month which is crazy with all the traffic that we have had this month and like I have said in the past this website is generating more and more traffic on a regular basis which is good and goes back to what I said this week on a post that we are getting viewership on here. 

Entertainment Man Podcast: As you know Chris has taken this week off and we have now re-scheduled the podcasts for the coming weeks all Facebook/Twitter has been updated to reflect the change and he will be back next week and he has spoken to me about recording tomorrow morning so he can get it done ahead of time. Probably he is going to base that he is going to actually start recording on Mondays. He also finished up podcast notes this morning for this podcast.

Chris: He has now been on leave for an entire week and he's still struggling and been acting up especially on Facebook where he's been banned from Facebook twice in a week so his behavior with Facebook and why he's not able to post on the page at this time well today he will be returning again. However he has started to feel better but as I said he was insulted and that hasn't helped him one bit to be honest. However he is starting to feel better and this morning he finished up notes on the one podcast and starting on Wild Force Notes so he can actually record with Larry within a week hopefully. 


             There are the updates for this week and there is no news when Chris is planning to return and he trusts me to keep on running things and I honestly do not find this too hard as most of the site work has been done before he went on leave. It is just the day to day operations of ChrisBOnTheWeb and we are hanging in there while he feels better. I gotta feeling he will be back in a week or 2 from now ready to go. As I told him, when he is ready to wear the Owner tags again as he is only wearing his blue Special Access badge right now around the studio. I will give you a good heads up when he returns but for right now is to continue the day to day operations and make him proud that we held up without his presence.

Going To Help Chris With His PGATour2k21

              I am going to help Chris with his PGA2k21 with his game since he has officially has not gotten his money back on the game cause it was hard, he wants to give it another shot and really try his hardest to get good at the game. He was good at the Tiger Woods PGA Golf when he played those many years ago when he had that along with MVP 2003 and NHL which he is going to have to tell the story how he stacked up the teams on both of those games as a throwback Thursday story. However I am going to tell him, the more he keeps on playing the higher the level he will be on the game and probably will become a better player too. I have to tell him that he needs to make sure he knows where he is aiming the shot before hitting and that is the one issue he has had with it. Also he has to work on his putting on there too as he's shown me footage of him playing the game and it's bad and he admits it too in his commentary that he is really bad at putting. He was openly joking around that his putting sucks in the real life version of the game and not sure why he made a reference to that honestly. 

 

                I am going to do my best to help him but he has to grind, grind, grind. I admit he isn't really bad just a few things that needs to be fixed and I know he is willing to work on the issues he is having. He wishes there was no glitch issues with NBA2K21 with the weird green screen at one point so there are bugs with the game but he has gotten 2K20 to try it to see if there is a difference but we will see. I will try to help him out and will play the game with him even I think it is possible to play against each other and maybe the best way to teach him but he will get better it will just take time. This is the first time he's actually play a sports game in a 2K series and he has openly said it is very different from Tiger Woods or NHL series of sports games.

I Have To Address This About Chris!

             We were going to be very quiet about this but we found out someone has been bashing Chris calling him an "idiot." Let me say this, he is very intelligent and if it wasn't for him and the rest of the CBOTW Team this website would pretty much render useless. Let me explain: He has learned how to code from Google and YouTube for crying out loud! He has learned how to code a website from scratch and done all the details to the menu bar that you say. He also put social media buttons here on the website. He is very much intelligent not an "idiot." I'd like to see you creating content and constantly working on ideas to keep this site alive and what are you doing with yourself? Not doing what Chris is doing. Yes he may be away from CBOTW "On Leave" right now and it is cause of trolls and stress finally gotten to him! Plus we wouldn't have had 100K on the website without his help and long dedication! He has been minding his own business this entire time doing his own thing.

               Chris is doing his own thing and very hard working and he's trying to make a living out of this website and he's told me he is earning money from this website and seen a screenshot of the earnings and it's definitely a start and don't forget he started this only almost a year ago as he quit finding work to endure his own business ventures. He has worked hard and he deserves this time away from the administrative to deal with his own mental health as this year has been hard on him with issues with Everything About Reality TV becoming a thing of the past for him plus staff issues. What I am trying to say is he is minding his own darn business and now he's being called an idiot behind his back and I happened to find this out and trust me he's pretty peeved off. I am starting to worry that he will not be returning anytime soon but let's hope he will be back to blogging and admin side of things very soon. I had to address this and at least he is doing something with his life even during quarantine and still trying to make money while he's stuck in the house 24-7 recently and I can say this for all of us here on the team, we are proud of this team and him on the long hours he puts into this and honestly haters will hate. Sorry to bring this up but it had to be addressed on his behalf.

Chris Is Up To Something, but What?

               Something is up with Chris. He has now become very silent with the Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast and honestly I do not think it is the end of that podcast past December. There is plans beyond 2020 that he is not telling us the staff of the website nor Larry or myself so something is truly up and his being sneaky with the next plans. We all know by now a renewal for Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast is coming up and the two of them are sneaky but more like he (Chris) is being a sneak and he's truly doing something big and I sense something is up. We probably won't know for a few months on the announcement and sounds like there is talks again but I cannot really tell as Larry and him have been talking but I was not involved the conversation. 

 

               I know the viewership is low with Power Rangers Time Force and probably why the two of them are laying low with decision making for now. It is totally understandable and there are still 3 seasons to still cover before they decide but I can see the fact he's really worried about the viewership with the last one and I can see why. However he is up to no good and very sneaky and acting really off then usual so something is going to happen I just know it. It will happen in time but right now I cannot tell you anything because even I don't know what he is up to but the way the way he is wording his words and he is up to something but I just wanted to say this he is most definitely up to no good right now. We'll see and I will be watching him like a hawk... ha ha! I will see you all in the next post tomorrow.

We Do Get Views on Our Content & Website!

            So with the trolls telling us get better content and they wanna help to get us more views and we already get views like 200 - 300 or more a day which adds up and we got 100K pretty fast so the numbers does add up and we actually get quite a good amount of traffic and we rather not talk about analytics too much as we do not wanna bore you guys with the details but you kind of forced us to bring up our analytics. So do not say we do not get views when we do and clearly doing very well for ourselves to this day. We continue to grow on a regular basis and we triple over the last several months with views  as we use to get 2k at the most a month on our website which was little now we get about 6 - 7K a month and we are continuing to grow on a daily basis! To be honest, this month we just got over 7k and we're 8 days from finishing up the month of September. What's next? 8K in the month of October? You never know!


             We do get views so you can stop complaining we don't get views and we have been told that in the past too. However the facts are true and we can easily print screen the analytics if we wanted to but that is for our eyes only. We may have lost a few followers here and there but followers come and go. Also we're not lying about our views gone up either and haters will hate and let em. They are jealous of our success and we have had people like that in the past and we can let them get jealous and hate us for success we have made with ChrisBOnTheWeb. We will continue to grow as a website and with our content and what not and we are nowhere near done creating content as we have another podcast in the works which you guys know what it is anyways and this will help us continue to grow as a community.

I Originally Helped Build The Original ChrisBOnTheWeb.com

             This is going way back to the early days of us having a .com website or Chris so to speak like 2015 when he got the original ChrisBOnTheWeb.com which didn't have as many views as it does today to a couple of hundred of views a day which I will get into on another post another day this week as I have several ideas for the week. Anyways I want to go back 5 years ago when we just started out with a .com website, when this all became a reality. Yes we were a year and a half before ending YouTube as a whole but I helped Chris build the website from the ground up, pages added to the website the entire build of what was our very first menu bar which Chris hasn't really spoken about and I think he rather squash the fact he was with that provider as he's had his share of problems where they banned the website for no apparent reason not once but twice in the time which honestly was ridiculous. I'm sure it was being falsely reported but the point is we are with blogger now fully and love the way we have built up this website. 

 

          So I had a big hand in the build of the ORIGINAL website and have experience with the way ChrisBOnTheWeb.com runs so maybe that is why he has chosen me to help with the day to day operations while he's away. Now not only that I helped him build this website's pages and menu bar. Wasn't just Mark and I, it was a 3 man operation and there was a ton of work and it took us a long time. Chris mainly tested it and reported back to us as we did majority of the work switching on a regular basis. Either that doesn't matter who work on the website but I have learned a lot about building Menu Bars, CSS Code, IFrame and even building social media buttons within the website. This is how I am familiar with the build of our website. I hope you all enjoyed this story of how I was involved the website before we moved to blogger or blogspot on more permanent basis and I will talk to you guys tomorrow.

Chris Is On A Partial Leave of Absence...

           Well, you trolls won... You drove poor Chris to insanity and stress. He pours his time and effort into content, to continuing to grow this website, give him a darn break! He works countless hours without a break whatsoever, he works day in and day out and you tell him to get better content when he is working hard. It has been nothing but trolls and insults and rudeness towards him and the entire team. We lost one staff cause of ex staff being rude... It's driven him to a mental breakdown. I'm sorry but I have to vent because enough is enough with all of this. So the news I have is that Chris has decided with my help and suggestions to take a leave of absence from the administration side of things. However he will not be steering away from podcasts notes, Entertainment Man Podcast & Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast and he will tweet updates from time to time when he's not busy to say hi or any updates on the podcast planning but I will also be tweeting and posting to social media as well. 


            Chris has been unhappy for nearly 2 months now and I saw this coming even before I took over the role of Community Manager and been around the ChrisBOnTheWeb Socials and the website. I may be taking on a bigger role within the team as Administrator but I will also be still pertaining the Community Manager role as normally. I am just taking on a second role while boss man is away getting better and dealing with his depression. Honestly I can say this, Chris has thought about giving me full Ownership and stepping down as Owner of the website and group but glad he has decided to do this and I've been trying to get him to take time away from the admin side of things to focus on the project aspect. Do not worry I was one of the 2 between myself and Mark who helped and built the menu bar and social media buttons on the website so I do have experience in coding and I previously helped him with the Original ChrisBOnTheWeb.com on that other provider that Chris doesn't really like... Finally you will be seeing more posts from me unless Chris decides to pop on to say hi and do a post. Do not worry, he is going to be back and when is the question as I cannot really tell you guys at this point when he is planning to start doing his normal everyday duties. Let's just hope he doesn't have to take another leave again cause of you trolls. Let me give you a warning, you once insult us or disrespect us, you will be banned and not allowed back. We have no room for trolls as wanna keep things flowing well and have been flowing well with new programming coming soon to the website. I will address that this week at some point.

ChrisBOnTheWeb Weekly Updates [09-20-2020]

            It is that time of the week again for another update. Another crazy week and let me say this: Give Chris a break. he is trying to create quality content for you guys and you tell him to do better content when he's trying his darnest to actually give you guys good content. We will ban trolls for disrespect and I was trashed talked in the last day or two and it is not tolerated honestly and we have to start putting our foot down and not afraid to ban if we have to and we will warn but honestly it doesn't seem to help sometimes. Anyways to the updates:

Website- Stream page has been removed as we are continuing on with the Audio ONLY side of things and wanna focus on Audio ONLY which is a ton better then Video and we have been told or Chris has been told we get a ton more views. Another thing you guys say we don't get views when the website and the podcasts are getting ton of views so people clearly do care and listen to our stuff. 

Power Rangers Podcast- The next recording of the podcast is scheduled for October sometime as Chris has to type up Wild Force still as it was put on hold recently but he will get it done soon I'm sure.  He also has to get to Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder for December so he can start the next phase if they chose to renew which he addressed it physically yesterday after the convo him and Larry. He didn't say much but has hinted things but he's being super weird with the plans with it at this point. 

             That is really is much it for updates. Not much to say or update for you guys and I had to vent on some trolling recently but we will not tolerate that and we are going to be careful and keep an eye out on the fan page and like I said if we have to warn people and/or ban them, we will but we will give a 2 warnings before a ban but those are the updates for the week and I will be speaking to you guys next weekend. Have a great week in the meantime.

Larry and I Been Joking Around and Updates!

           I had to share this as you know we're now in negotiations for a Renewal for Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast and Larry had to make a stupid joke that we will still be doing this when we're 80 years old! I know we are making stupid jokes about ourselves but hey like he said as long as we're having fun with the series and talking about it that is what really matters.  You guys probably wondering are we getting close to a renewal? Well not yet. We have spoken about it recently this week and it is in the back of our minds at this point but we are having fun with the fact with in our 30's or late 30's talking about Power Rangers and there will always be some kind of series we will always be talking about I'm sure. By the sounds of the renewal I think it's gonna happen, I have a funny feeling it's gonna happen sooner or later and we will see us continuing on with this amazing series.  As Larry and I mentioned it is little early to be making this decision as we still got 3 more episodes to go before end of our agreement once again and this would make this the second agreement we have made so we will have to make a decision before December whether we are going to continue on and I think we will. 


              I have a feeling it is in the back of our mind it will be renewed and we will be indeed back to recording Power Rangers Podcast in February 2021 even if we end up still stuck with doing it through Skype at this point. I am good doing it through Skype at this point and one of these days we will be both back in studio recording the podcast at some point when this pandemic gets at ease and under control once we get a vaccine for it. Anyways I want this to continue even during this pandemic and I know it is not the same doing this via Skype but what other choice do we have. So yes both Larry and myself have talked about the future of the collaboration podcast and it will happen when the time is right but at this moment I do not think it is the appropriate time and we just need to focus on finishing these up but we continue to negotiate and we both thank you guys for your continuing love and support through email that you would like  to see us continue this collab and please keep telling us you'd like to continue to hear the podcast, anything helps us.

Been Binge Watching Malcolm In The Middle Lately...

                 Lately I have found myself watching numerous series and got so many on the list, Supergirl, Big Brother Canada, Monk, CSI and Married With Children but in time I will get them all done and I am promising myself to not add on to the list at this point as it will be endless and I already have enough on the list as it is at this point. Anyways one of the shows I am watching right now is Malcolm in The Middle which I know is an old series 20 years ago which I was just prior to being in High School when I started watching the series. Anyways I definitely feel like it is a very dysfunctional family and one of moments I just saw was Lois going off at Reese and Malcolm and Reese mocking Lois yet there was a mirror on the door so she knew he was mocking her which honestly was pretty funny. Guess the saying goes you cannot fix stupid but the look on Reese's face like oh crap moment but it was priceless moment. However it is such a crazy series and funny in the same way.


                 I mean who in the world doesn't like a crazy family that's out of their mind. It sure makes for a great TV Show and to be honest, I miss this series and it has been a long time now 15 or more long years since it went off the air. However there is other shows that I can watch and I can do exactly what I am doing right now. I know my list is kind of on the endless list right now but I am sure in time I will be finishing up series. I do not really have a list of the shows I wanna watch in chronological order. I just do not know which one order but either way I am going to enjoy this show first and watch the Lois yelling at the boys and freaking out. I can tell you this, she ain't stupid that's for sure. She knows exactly what the boy are doing but either way. I am enjoying the series and first time I've watched the series back to back to back. I sure can use a laugh that's for sure especially with these hard times we're all going through.

First Series We Ever Recorded As The Video Projects Team! (Throwback Thursday Story)

          This goes back to 14.5 years ago when I was at the age of 20. This was when I was starting out on the Online Media world soon as I got out of High School, I got right into it all. Anyways the project was about different attractions within our region and was our very first project that we actually did. This all stemmed and started as a class project for my media class in high school. This is how this all began and started in 2005. We filmed the entire episode in a day and I believe I actually got my dad to drive us on the final stretch as we were running out of time and I think Eric was driven back cause of the timing as by the time we finished it was quite late in the day like 4 pm in the afternoon. Now we originally had an original plan for a small Reality TV series but since the teams backed out on us we had to come up with a new plan and a plan fast as I believe we were days away possibly 2 days from shooting the episode for the school project so we had to call Juliana at the Gallery to let her know of the change that was happening. I know we gave her a 2 day or 1 day notice but it was so sudden.  


            The series completed a 16 episode run as we continued on past the 1 episode on February 13th, 2006 when we decided to continue the series on with different locations out and about and there was no in studio recording. Our Season 1 Finale actually consisted of us doing a clip show outside with a TV in the carport which was little insane but that's OK. The series went on for a 2nd Season but it only lasted 3 episodes before it got cancelled entirely as we had some disagreements or creative differences with one another. However it was only our first series and I wish I kept all the episodes to eventually post up on YouTube as at that time we did not even started till January 31st, 2008. This series actually ended on January 10th, 2008, 21 days before we began our YouTube journey.

I Admit I Haven't Been Myself Lately....

              I do admit it, I haven't been myself and stress and handling so much at once doesn't really help either which is definitely not a good thing. I think I am just taking on too much and letting the drama get to me and that obviously rowels me up and I end up not sleeping at night or I just end up back in a slump again. I think a few things that is probably bothering me is not just the workload for ChrisBOnTheWeb but also since Ruth Ann and Kevin passed, I have struggled with it recently and I am not using this for views I am just being open and honest and I have been keeping it very quiet to today's post and only post I will make. I know it will take some time to heal and I am glad I continued to work on ChrisBOnTheWeb and keep myself busy and probably the best thing to keep busy and my mind off the pain.  


               The next thing is the stuff going on behind the scenes here and it has been completely crazy drama recently and I am trying to steer clear of it happening but it's been almost a week since it happened and things have slowly quieted down for us and we're doing everything that we can to make sure there is no more problems. Anyways let's move on to my mental health has not been the best lately with this pandemic recently and it's actually started to drag me down where I have been stuck in the house a lot more then usual and just not use to being at home all the time, I am use to going out, being with friends, going to Staples and I know I have to hang in there and there will be a day and time when I will be able to do that all again hopefully soon but for the most I have to get my parents to drive me and pick me up which is fine with me. I will bounced back and I already have, I have been smiling in the last 12 + hours and it is definitely a start. I am just taking it one day at a time and the fact I have started being up during the night again doesn't help but I am going to lie down and sleep when my body tells me to. I think it has to do with the fact I do not really go anywhere and that I am home majority of the time so my body is a bit thrown off but again I am taking one day at a time and honestly that is what I need to do.

More Changes but Change is Good!

                 Again with the changes! I am really just sick and tired of the changes just because it is happening way to fast for me but sometimes I gotta just deal with things at a faster face that is definitely the working world. For those who don't know Gamers Podcast is back on the shelf for the 1,000,000th time and for the last time. I am just honestly done playing games with a podcast now.... Having communication issues with the host that we had behind the scenes and it wasn't working out. So now CBOTW has 2 podcasts running at this point, "Entertainment Man Podcast" & "Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast" I still got Tiala, Larry and Jim onboard to help out and they are going nowhere. I know this is a lot to digest and I think I made a mistake adding on too much, too soon. I have to honestly slow things down a bit and if it happens to add on another podcast down the road then so be it we will add on another one. I think what we need to do as a team is take small steps. You have to walk before you can run as the saying goes and we are moving at such a fast pace and I think it is not the right move at this moment. 


                 We will get to expanding soon enough and maybe eventually that we will be at the right point to expand but right now we need to slow down our role. I definitely think we are going at a very fast pace at the moment and need to slow the heck down a tad, just a tad. However the website stream page is still there and it will remain empty till we feel we are ready to go to actually stream our podcasts and if we decide it's not worth it then we will just continue to record Audio ONLY but that can be decided at a later date to be honest. Either way it sits on the website waiting for it's future fate of the website. We may use it, we may not that is up to the podcast team in the end. However change is definitely good for the good reasons not the bad and if we are to expand it will be at a more of slower pace then we have been going.

I'm Back and I Got Concerns!

               I know it has been a while since i was around posting up regular daily posts recently and the reason was cause of the drama which I will not get into but my mental health has honestly been bad recently. That is why I've been on and off making posts recently and it is hard for my team to keep up with the posts on a regular day but I am trying to deal with all of this and get the work done within the studio especially podcasts for Entertainment Man Podcast and Power Rangers Podcast which I should have an update by end of the week if we will be going through an renewal as I am need of answers and so are you guys too! It has been long coming since all of this craziness whether we will be indeed renewing the collaboration podcast or not and I have a funny feeling that it will be happening I have that positive set and mind it will return for yet another section of the series here on our website. That has been one of my concerns with the amount of views we got and least we got views that is what matters, we're getting more views on the collaboration podcast then my own personal podcast but my podcast is newer and people have to discover it and are already discovering it. 


               The next thing I wanna address is our Facebook Page which has really gone down hill for the last month and I honestly have thought about closing it down and focusing on Twitter and Instagram like we use to but I have to remember we still have 56 loyal fans on the fan page and I just do not feel like I wanna turn my back on the fans on there or any fans. Yeah we have had some troll and disrespectful people recently but all we have to do is block or ban them from the page and I know and you guys know I do not like to ban people if I do not have to but I am just getting tired of the disrespect and b.s. that is coming with it and at this point if I have to ban, I will ban, no warning nothing. I've had to do that with 4 people already and I know we lose likes cause of it but we just want to keep the positive and no drama and for the most part we keep to ourselves and trying to not post negativity on our page.  That is my post and I am for the most part I am back and I will see you guys in tomorrow's blog post!

ChrisBOnTheWeb Weekly Updates [09-13-2020]

              As I said in yesterday's post, I hinted a ton of different things and the most exciting part is getting our Founder & Owner back this week after a very rough week. I know he's gone missing quite a lot lately but all cause of drama, drama, drama and to be honest it's enough to drive him insane and he lost it and really just couldn't deal with it hence he disappeared for a little while. Anyways onto the major updates that we have for you guys this week:

- Website: We have updated as you know we updated numerous things on the website as well as add in new pages. First of all we added onto our website a "Staff" page which has been indeed long requested as people want to know who is on our team and who is involved with ChrisBOnTheWeb. It has been since then updated staff removed, and myself and Larry have been added to that actual list.  Finally with this updates for the website portion of our weekly updates is this Live page. You all are probably wondering what the heck is going on with it and for now he has put that on the back shelf for now as we recently cancelled a podcast and the feature renders useless right now due to the fact only time it would be used at this moment is Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast as we do not know with the other podcast which I will get into soon so right now the Live page remains hidden and unused but it is ready to go one way or another when the time is right.

- Sports Podcast: Due to some things that happened behind the scenes and I will not get into the entire details. This podcast is no longer in production within CBOTW Network, it has been removed off our menu bar and off our network at this point.  Any graphics also have been removed off our social media. 

CBOTW Gamers Podcast: A new podcast is now in the works however our host for that Podcast, Jeff needs time to his computer back, setting up on our website video feed that we have here on ChrisBOnTheWeb.com so it goes back to that feed not being used at this moment but this podcast has a logo and still gotta work on the Podcast feed but plenty of time for Chris to work on this.

                 There is the updates for this week and we had a ton to talk about this week and I hope you guys enjoyed it and I am pretty sure I covered everything and I know that Chris will tell me if I indeed forget something but I am 99.999% sure that I haven't forgotten anything on the list. Anyways I will speak to you guys next week and hope you all have a great week and I will see you around the CBOTW Social Media accounts throughout the week.

              So I got some updates from the boss man and he feels great! He feels happy and good enough now to actually make his return to social media as of Monday morning you will see a lot more posts and updates from him. He is excited to returned and he tweeted a couple of posts after being off so it goes to show that he is indeed ready to come back and get back to making posts for you guys. He's starting to feel less stressed and feeling a lot calmer and maybe him taking a few days away here and there but again he's been active in creating and making content for you guys and including updating this website which I will be getting into tomorrow morning's post. There will be a ton to update for you guys to updates to hear on tomorrow's post and we can be honestly excited for it.

Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast On Hold

                Chris has decided to put any upcoming Podcasts for Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast on hold till end of next week till him and Larry have a Skype meeting with each other on a lot of things. I will highlight what they need to discuss:

 -  When they will be recording Power Rangers Wild Force: They are currently still behind schedule and things are just getting rolling again and they are about to get ready to record and I am guessing at this point they are aiming for the end of September, early October. 

- State of COVid-19 With This Podcast: With things getting worsened in Ontario, he's already mentioned to me that I am will mention: Him and Larry have to actually discuss how long they wanna continue on recording Power Rangers Podcast via Skype at this point. If they wanna put the podcast on hold or if they wanna continue to record via Skype.

The views on Power Rangers Time Force: He will be discussing what the views that they got on the last episode which I have personally seen screenshots and it's not that bad really. 10 views is better then 5 and he's stated he don't care if he gets 5 views, he's doing it for the love of the show and bringing back his childhood memories plus he's doing this for Larry as it was an idea Larry had. 

- Future of The Collaboration Podcast: He is going to have a conversation about renewing the Collaboration Podcast which has been up and down with Chris trying to figure out what he wants to do and the worries of the views going down so he is truly worried about the amount of views but he's changed his attitude on that. 


               That is what he has to talk to Larry about and why he's mentioned to me to make this post but we will know more information by next week at some point once the two of them talking and I probably will end up being the first person to know since he isn't going to be on for a week and a half.

Chris Is Taking Time Away from The Blog and Social Media...

                Chris is taking some time away from the website, blog and social media as I stated on here and social yesterday, there was stuff going on which again we will not get into detail but he is stressed right out to a point of a mental breakdown and I think he had one the other night and him being away from the the team and all of this. However he will still be working on his own pace and the podcast will remain as schedule but as for the live I will be addressing that tomorrow. Things will be reveal over the next week as that is what he is planning to not be around for the next week as he needs. I think this is what he needs and honestly things were going just smoothly up to what happened and I was surprised to see a message from him late last night to what was going on and that is why I offered to take it over. Right now he needs to get his mental health better. He is all wound up like he gets like this especially like the other night. Plus he has been under immense pressure getting Entertainment Man Podcast notes done and also Power Rangers Podcast which is currently on standby.


               There is stuff I like to explain Saturday as there is a ton of stuff going on and why he's put things on hold. I do not why he has to bring me into his dirty work, honestly... LOL! He probably see this post and just shake his head at me talking about him but it is positive things. We're a team and we stick together to the end. He will be back soon I hope and right now it's him getting work done and discussing with who's left on this team at this moment as the staff seems to be fluctuating at this moment.  This is why he needs a community manager and he has one, me. I use to be near him at one point, but moved away and I am still happy to help him out one way or another. I am here to answer questions you guys may have via Social Media or email, just send me a message and I or the staff will be sure to answer them as quickly as possible.

We Ran Into An Issue With Mobile Compatibility With The Live Page!

              First of all: Chris is off today from the blog and social media due to some drama that went on last night but I will not get into details at this moment but I am taking over the Community Manager role as well as we just switched over Community Managers yet again and part of it is what I said above. Anyways I am hear today to talk about our Live Feature. We recently tested the feature out for how compatible the feed is via mobile and I can tell you it works but you either login to the chat or play the video as the auto play feature but majority of people to this day of age have computers as Chris and I had that conversation this morning as we are late coming out with the post and most of us slept in after a rough night for all of us.


               So after consulting the boss man, if you wanna do both then you will have to be on a computer but if you wanna listen to mobile you can as it is both compatible on mobile as it is HTML5.  So you listen to it but you cannot do both that is our issue with the live page. I've noticed with the page there has been a lot of views lately and probably cause the Staff been in and out of the page a ton lately. I'm pretty sure the page isn't visible through Google at the moment as it hasn't been available and maybe the fact it hasn't been promoted does make a difference and the only people that really do know is the Staff of this website. However we will make a clear statement when we start posting links whenever that is as Chris is holding back the live for this week but we will make a note that you will have to login to a computer for both due to the state that this player does not auto play which it should to be honest. You can't say we tried! We are continuing to test and try this but no guarantees when we will be launching it it could not even be this weekend at point cause of the schedule.

Will I Still Stream On Facebook and Instagram Live?

              Now with the announcement of the new Live Feature for Podcasts has been made the question I have is will I continue to do streams on Facebook and Instagram from time to time? The answer is yes. When I have a chance or announcement to make, I will most definitely go live and you can withhold me to that and right now there is no other announcement but I am not a fan of the live feature on Facebook and Instagram but if I need to make an announcement I definitely will. Don't expect it to be every day or couple of times a week. You will know when I go live to know what the announcement as you will be notified. I know I have had more requests for me to do live streams on the fan page and I would love to but I am a very busy person from maintaining the website to doing these posts to my own podcast and help getting the hosts onto the air as well as I am the one that setup that feature and the one that  has the key to the door to our stream on the website.


                Anyways, that is what I have to say and I know I am only going to be live on Facebook and my Instagram and I know you're going to ask what about the website well that is another story but in a nutshell I will be only live for Power Rangers Podcast at this point as you know my days for broadcasting are slim to non of me ever being a regular caster and as you know Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast is 3 times a year and I wanna save the airwaves for the other podcasts to be honest and when I said I am semi retired from casting I meant it and mainly if I was to cast it would be off my website or on the CBOTW social media's at this point. We've been banned off of Twitch, YouTube and other platforms. However I mean it I will pop up here on ChrisBOnTheWeb.com and socials from time to time but don't expect it to be often. Thank you for continuing to read on a daily basis and I will talk to you guys tomorrow.

Planning To Roll Out A New Feature On The Website!

            We are no longer going to be broadcasting our Podcasts on our Fan Page. No it's not cause of copyright or anything it's more we more then likely will be getting more listeners on our website as we will be getting a ton more traffic right here on our website and we have a good chance of success too. As you probably noticed that we have the chat and same rules apply as before.

              When I created this page I yet to add the actual rules to the page which more then likely be at the bottom which will be our playground area where you can find the rules. One thing we will do is lock the chat down when there is no podcasts live to ensure that there there is nobody spamming, insulting and disrespect will find you banned.  We are not going to tolerate it to be honest and we have learned from this in the past. The feature is starting to be tested by the hosts that are currently active and the shows that are currently active Live on the Website Live Feed are: 

Power Rangers Podcast (Larry and I)

Sports Hour W/ Bulldog (Billy)

(CBOTW Gamers Podcast (Jeff) When it returns. Podcast is in pre-production right now.


                 There is the just the beginning as we are rolling out new features and ideas to grow this website and this is just the most perfect time to take to our website as the numbers are insane. We are not rolling out the Live Stream Page yet as we need to test the other host on it aka Billy and just hope he's cool with the idea of us actually doing it on the website but it is my website, I am the boss, just wanna make sure the team are happy with my decisions as that wasn't the case once with my old team at one time. We will let you guys know when the Live Page actually is live on the website publicly.
