@digitalerich: I set Firefox to allow all cookies from giantbomb.com and www.giantbomb.com. I didn't actually get it fixed in Chrome, so I'm not sure. Maybe they changed something about how embeds work?

This was working for me until this week. Now I'm getting "www.giantbomb.com refused to connect" errors on everything. I'm trying on Windows in both Firefox and Chrome, and I'm logged into both. Anyone know what's up with this?

Edit: Ended up being an issue with cookies.

From the Find a Club search, it says 1458/2000 members, but clicking through updates the number to 2000/2000. Is it actually full?

Edit: It was full. Someone had quit, it said 1999/2000, and I grabbed the last slot. Thank you to whoever did that, I guess, and good luck to anyone trying to get in.

I was late to the party, so I was watching the stream of this week's UPF delayed on YouTube. Suddenly, my stream cuts out, and the video is no longer available. I guess it was just pulled down? How long does it normally take before the acrhived version shows up on the site? I'd really like to watch the last 15 minutes.

And me. Tried multiple podcast apps on Android.

I canceled my premium subscription and filled out the feedback form explaining why I canceled. Hitting submit brought me to https://auth.giantbomb.com/billing/feedback/sent/, which yields a 404.

I hope my feedback went through, and that someone actually listens.

@rorie: There's nowhere to enter a username/password in any of them. Most RSS readers don't support authentication, which makes premium RSS feeds a pain in the ass.

List of other RSS readers that I've tried that won't work:

Inoreader (browser)

Podax (Android)

Podcatcher (Android)

Simple Podcatcher (Android)

This is just getting dumb now. Nothing I try works, and I'm not going to install the bloated Windows version of iTunes just for an RSS feed of the Bombcast.

I think this quote fits.

Giant Bomb is an awesome site, and you guys have to keep it awesome, and when you get put in a building full of suits, there is the potential for things to become less awesome. So it's on you guys to hold these guys to their current level of Giant Bomb. It's on you. The moment that they waver, you call them out on it, you call them loudly.

- Rich Gallup, April 7th 2012, Giant Bomb Panel at Pax East 2012.

Hey @jeff, @brad, @vinny, @drewbert, @rorie. I know it sucks that Ryan's gone, but it's been three months. Now that PAX is over, please step up the content. The yearly subscriptions run out in just over three weeks for all the people who signed up for yearlies during the first Big Live Live Show. I'm personally not asking for much, just make something more than UPF.

Kinda bummed that there isn't going to be a BLLSL this year. Also kinda bummed that they're not showing any signs of starting up TNTs again, there haven't been any recent Jar times, Flight Club's pretty much dead, and Random PC Game is nowhere to be found.

I don't even know if I'm going to resubscribe this year. One Unprofessional Friday a week doesn't seem worth the money to me, and I don't really care about wrestling or movies enough to want the premium podcasts. (Isn't this a website about video games?)
