Would it be easier if the !explain command just linked to an LRL highlights reel / sizzle reel whenever there is one? Yes it's an external link but that would be a lot shorter than dropping a block of text into the chat whenever someone says "Hey, who's that?" I think a highlights video could also be more beneficial for letting people know all of the things that LRR does instead of just a text explanation of who a specific person is.

As far as special guests goes, they tend to introduce themselves a handful of times throughout the streams already and I think other people in chat are just as likely to explain who the guest is to anyone asking regardless of whether or not there's a specific command for an official explanation so I'm not sure automated text response would be all that helpful. It might be useful to explain some of the in-jokes like Snorsh and Honeywell though. That could be as simple as an !explain memes command that links to a bullet-point list on the wiki (maybe with links to relevant videos). Also, writing a new explanation every time there's a new guest would probably be a pain.

One-off guests, it probably doesn't make sense to !explain. Recurring guests, like Susie and Charlotte, more so.

What I mostly envisioned with !explain is that it would have: generic entries, like !explain LRR or MtGO, entries for each host, each show, and certain memes like Snorsh and Phlottery.

Susie and Charlotte aren't so much guests as cohosts from the way it sounds. Let's Nope seems to be becoming a regular thing, and they seem like they're going to be the normal guests.

Lars is also a frequent enough addition to Cam's streams that he probably warrants an !explain too.

I've been able to find them when they're live. If you "follow" them, they're easier to find, too.

If it's anything like the iOS version, I think it's because the app only shows the X most popular streams unless you follow. Sometimes even then it'll bump streams for others. And because certain games dominate Twitch, it's unlikely to improve...

Yeah, the only way I can absolutely guarantee I know when LRR is streaming is to have them be the only ones I follow. Which works out fine for me, since the rest of Twitch can suck a mossy log, but that may not work for others.

Yeah I've followed them, but still the android app fails to find them. I did log into the app, but who knows. I am running it on a Blackberry device using it's Android runtime, but it runs flawlessly in all other respects.

Oh well, it streams perfectly well in my phones's browser. LRR is the only thing I follow / subscribe to on Twitch.

Oh, wait, Android app? There's your problem. I swear, the Android apps for everything are shit on cheesy biscuits. Skype, Twitch, Twitter, Tumblr, none of it works.

Half the time, when I try to go into the "followed streams" section in the Android app it just says "Network error" with no other details. The network is fine, and the other features in the app work fine, it's just that screen that's badly-written. Usually logging out and back in again fixes it, so it's probably some sort of login session that's broken... but then again, chatting still works, so it still knows who I am. It's bizarre.

Usually I just type "loadingreadyrun" in the search bar, and that finds it. At least, when the search bar is a thing that exists, and they haven't removed it from the app, as they've done in the past for no apparent reason.

Search bar appears, but no results for any variation of LRR...odd. I guess I should try when live.

Yeah, the Android app will not do replays, nor will it find streams that are offline.

None of the mobile apps do replays, as far as I know. Hell, the Twitch website barely does replays.

Adam's a guy who used to be on LRR a bit, but hasn't recently that much. As mentioned in all three scheduled streams yesterday, Adam's coming back and playing his backlog of games on Saturdays.

I want the soundtrack for Air Control. I wonder where he "borrowed" it from.

I fell asleep sometime during their 'lemme install a GOOD game' break...and have vague dreams/hallucinations about Graham and Alex BEING goats. :lol:

After supper I'm gonna have to go check the rest of the archive.

And I'm with Gunner - ALL these horrible games seem to have REALLY CATCHY soundtracks...

Adam's stream yesterday was fun. Dragon's Dogma looks sweet.

I do feel Adam takes a bit to much advice from chat, instead of figuring it all out himself, but I can imagine that being because he just started the game.
