Happy Moo Year! We’re back with updates on how our holidays went, and all the latest in our crazy lives. Our 24-hour chat room has moved to Discord, and you can join our community there at: http://tinyurl.com/tttchat2 Our discussion question: We’ve all heard about post-con blues, but what about those who can’t ever make it to a convention or meetup? How does someone handle the fear of missing out? Our Think Tank question: I’ve come back to the guild I left about a year ago and found it to be a ghost town. My friend and I were told that we were the reason everyone was there in the first place. What advice do you have to revive this dead guild and avoid the mistakes of the past?

It’s our holiday episode, completely with our annual holiday parody song! Our 24-hour chat room has moved to Discord, and you can join our community there at: http://tinyurl.com/tttchat2 Our discussion question: Have you ever experienced raid anxiety? How do you handle it when you’re afraid to even raid because you might make a mistake? Our Think Tank question: I began dating a woman, and she stopped responding to my texts and messages with no warning. We’re part of the same raid team, and it hurts to hear her voice each week like nothing’s happened. Should I leave the team or confront her?

Welcome back to a snort-laugh inducing episode of TTT! We are heading to PAX South in January 2016 to talk in a panel and we’re so excited to tell you about it! Our 24-hour chat room has moved to Discord, and you can join our community there at: http://tinyurl.com/tttchat2 Our discussion question: I’m a police officer, and my coworkers and captain recently pushed me too far with horsing around, and caused me to lose my temper with a superior. Now everyone treats me differently. How should I handle this? Our Think Tank question: I want to date, but I struggle with how people treat me for being a gamer and loving to raid and play WoW. When do I tell a potential love interest about what I love doing?

It’s the week of BlizzCon prep, new challenge mode mounts, and yet another denial by the Headless Horseman! Our discussion question: What are ways we can find happiness within the game, and within ourselves, right now. and not be guilty of “provisional living” each day? Our Think Tank question: I’m 18 years old, and I want to be thinner and more fit than I am. Motivation is a struggle and I’d rather give up when I fail instead of keep trying.

Hallow’s End is here, BlizzCon is rapidly approaching, and we’re ready for another round of great questions! Our discussion question: I have a number of physical and psychological challenges, and opportunities to meet women are extremely limited for me. How can I find a soul mate that will accept me for who I am? Our Think Tank question: I am part of a group of people that aren’t getting along because of one specific member that used to be in charge of things. Her departure is making it hard for our group to work with others. Even if I’m not directly involved, what can I do to help the situation?
