Podcast for January 2018 Welcome to 2018. That’s right. Welcome
back- it’s a new year and we’ve got a new theme: “The Time Is Now” Yeah and so we figured the time is now for another podcast so we’re gonna try
and you know do it right we’re trying to. We’re going to try and have these somewhere near regularly but we can’t tell you when just be prepared. We’ll share some news with you and we’ll have a little fun along the way maybe? Sometimes. Ok
well we’ll try. I’ll try to have a little fun- Matt will be here and that’s the
best part. So thanks for joining us in the new year we appreciate you playing
so this is for you. We, me and Dylan- not Matt. Sorry you didn’t get included. It’s alright, I actually got work done today. Congratulations.
Dylan and I got to talk with the ADA: The American Diabetes Association a little
bit earlier today and they actually presented us with this award which you
know we’ve got sitting right here. The top fundraising corporate team:
-Munzee-
Tour de Cure. American Diabetes Association So that’s where you guys- thanks to all of
you- yeah we really appreciate everything that you did back in October/November as
we participated in the Tour de Cure and I actually got a new shirt a new Tour de
Cure shirt last night in the mail that Dylan says “No you can’t see it.”
That’s okay it is one like a training shirt. So we are looking forward to more with ADA and Tour de Cure throughout this year So stay tuned and thanks again to the ADA thanks to all of our players for the donations that
you gave us. Diabetes research is an important
thing and, yeah, it’s all for you. So thanks. Speaking of “Thank You”… Matt- Thank you. Oh you’re welcome. Yeah January 11th was International Thank You Day- oh yeah that’s right. That’s what it was and so we had International Thank You Day specials on
the map for a duration of the weekend basically the 11th through the 14th and
I had a lot of fun- I did too. Did you get all three? I did get all three. See so we
had three Thank You specials. There was a Thank You note from me. Matt had a nice Thank You note as well. and then we had a Thank You note from
Louise, because she interacts with quite a few of you on the events yeah and so
if you’ve ever been to an event your event host dealt with her and so she’s
got to reach out there to you players. So thank you we appreciate all of you
without you there would be no game and so yeah we thought we saw that and
thought how could we do something fun so the Thank You notes. How did you get your three? I got my three using Magnets. It was the day that they came out or the day after and I put a few Magnets out thinking I’m
just gonna do this, gloat a little bit in front of Rob- good day. Put them out, we had a player visit so I had to leave them and I ended up getting none that day. I think I finished it on Friday Isn’t that interesting. Yes, I got them
that day so I thank you for that yeah whenever we have players visit
we’ve got some greens around the office we like to Magnetize those so they have
an opportunity The other thing about using the magnets is we do it just so that we can help move the specials along. Exactly, we get some here and then bounce
them to other place that’s what we’re trying to do we’re just trying to help
all of you so had some fun with the Thank You
specials and hope everybody out there did. We’ve we’ve got more things coming
soon as usual more specials and some unique stuff we’ll tell you a little bit
more here in just a minute one that’s coming up I’m actually really
excited about it’s gonna be fun oh yeah but don’t give them anything, but before we get there, there is something that I do have that I know you don’t. Okay go ahead. The Classical Myth Wrangler. Oh, I thought you were gonna say hair- Sorry. I do have too. I’m you I’m used to that joke, so- The Classical Myth Wrangler
badge- excellent. All right tell me about it, because if I don’t have
it there’s got to be a reason. Before we started recording he said he was gonna say “Tell me about it” and I did and I walked right into it. So last December- December 2016- we introduced the Myth Wrangler badge
for getting all four Mythologicals in one day. Well now there are four more
Mythologicals out- Yes, that’s it right Yeah the Classical Mythologicals,
plus a few AlternaMyths But obviously a few less of those, a little harder to get, but the Classical Myths have been out and we thought it was about time to
introduce the Classical Myth Wrangler badge. Okay so there’s The Cyclops, The Hydra The Faun And the Pegasus. I have to make sure I’m not gonna say something I’m not supposed to. I was wondering which one you were gonna say- I had to think about if yeah good deal but So that started awarding Thursday Right, yes, yeah so you already picked it
up. I already picked it up. I’m very impressed, because
that’s not been very much time. So I have not, but when I get back to my desk I might I might see if there are any Myths and there might any Classical Myths that are around the area that would be good. I actually got really lucky it was
like the first three that came out and then you got to travel a little bit
to get a Pegasus. Oh that’s true yeah can’t do that so much oh man
anyway I could so many that could have a little bit ago but I didn’t because I
didn’t drive the right direction okay so let’s tell everybody, because
we’ve released the Munzee 3.4.1 update. That was a pretty bad transition. I was just jumping into it, because we want to make things quicker.
We are gonna be pretty quick guys. Dylan loves segways- not me. 3.4.1 so there are three things specific things that we want to tell you
a little bit about. Depending on what platform you’re on. There are only two for one
platform. It means that you already
had a better version of what the rest of us, who like fruit, got. So we got an updated scanner we have updated translations as well and then
there was this little phantom white bar on the fruity phones I didn’t know where fruit came from, so I didn’t get it until then. Apple iPhone, okay. So there was a white bar up at the top if there
was no nearby activity and so now that white bar has been removed we’d like to
thank Daniel Fischer for all of his work but not only on the app
update, but just for being Super Fischer I call him Super German you call him Daniel Fisher it’s the same word. Zee German. So we appreciate all of his work he’s pushed that out. He’s been working on so
many other things behind the scenes Some WallaBee stuff that’s coming
soon and unfortunately we don’t have time to talk about WallaBee because this
is not the WallaBee podcast- go talk to Robbie on that one. He’s not here today by the
way to come into the podcast at least I’m getting back on topic here-
Obviously Daniel Fischer is a few hours ahead of us- Yes. Seven. So we got the notification that this app was ready to be pushed and it was four
o’clock or so our time and he was on there you know “Hey we can do this. Let’s
do this.” Yeah okay, okay we will do this. and it’s awesome that you know he will
reply to us at a time that most people would not. Nearing midnight. Yeah it was
cool so thanks Daniel thanks to all of our worldwide
people that work with us we appreciate the effort that everyone puts in instead
of just the group that’s here in the office or in the California office. Let’s see we got a couple things coming up We’re kind of getting to the end of this so let’s just throw out what we’re really good at Which is just kind of being vague and teasing people. So just some teases. So- what I have heard is… I didn’t think about this earlier, but I have a total better one. Oh well Matt, take it away. What did you hear? Well I heard that that- well… No, no, no. I don’t even want to say it now. It’s easier just not to. So you tell us Well I mean I’m I graduated from UT
Dallas our mascot was the Comets and I swear I’ve thought I’ve seen a few
around. Do you know that I got to think about that, but I did see one recently, so
that’s interesting. and that’s not fictional, I’m serious. Ummm uh comets are really cool? They attract. Other heavenly bodies. OFF CAMERA: There’s a difference between being vague and misleading. Well I mean they’re made out of metal. Ok. So… So you’re gonna scrap this little section? OFF CAMERA: No, no I’m keeping it. Oh man… OFF CAMERA: Because what you are referencing, I think is different from what he’s referencing. What are you talking about? I’m talking about the first one. OFF CAMERA: You know, comets… they are kinda… bright lights within the sky… kind of like- The fire [REDACTED] is not… Sorry- now you have
to cut it. Oh I can’t believe that I accidentally said that. My bad. So we have we’ve got I don’t know I used to These two things go hand in hand. I see the sky on fire- that’s what I
see when I think of a comet- how about you? Yeah that’s kind of why I said it. Well I don’t know that’s that’s all I got. So some things going hand-in-hand pretty
soon. Okay. I mean. Interesting. Very good. I like that. (Garbled Nonsense) Is he still trying to explain this? No… yeah… no… yeah I know… sometimes there’s there’s you know the
attraction that happens with all sorts of different things and that actually is
something that happens in February and they have a special day to commemorate
that and we think that, that is really special. Yes we think that that day is really special
so I’ll just tell you it’s coming soon Valentine’s Day So be ready for that
we’re gonna have some fun the middle of February we’re gonna have some fun the
beginning of February we’re gonna have some fun all through February is gonna
be fun it’s a short month which means we got to
pack a lot of fun into that month. Of course we’re going to it’s my birthday month we’re gonna have tons of fun in February. More badges, because we always need more badges, yeah. and… I just… as much as it would be great to talk about… He just wants to let it all out right now. I really do just one more thing that- but the problem is we don’t have Robbie here to explain. We don’t have Robbie here to explain If you pay close attention there’s a pretty
good schedule we keep for a lot of things around here. It’s true. Right, only a few schedules that we keep nice and tight and yeah there’s one of
them it’s coming soon. Yeah gonna be good time. I don’t know what else to tell you
it’s been a good start to the year I I think so. It’s been a lot you know for us
being busy getting everything ready for the next quarter, the next half year,
next full year and so there’s a lot of stuff in progress right now that we
can’t or refuse to tell anybody Depend on which, we like to tease
things, but a lot of it’s still kind of up in the air not exactly firm, but it’s
coming. right there’s a lot of stuff coming on we talked about in our last podcast. New app updates, new versions, things like that. Things that we’ve talked about still working on them everything’s trucking along,
but when there’s something solid that we can tell you, something tangible you’ll
know. We are walking through a couple of steps that we’ve got to do before
we start putting a few things public out about that yeah.It’s really exciting we’re kind of changing the way that we do things and
it’s been good, we’ve got things rolling in multiple areas across the
entire company. Yeah it’s all good January- thank you. That’s that’s what this month started off as I think it was a great way to start the month and the
year too though. This entire year is going to be sort of “Thank You” but that was definitely a
good way to start off I think so. So as we wrap it up my apologies for that
three minute “WHOA” what the heck was going on- I think I had too much Mountain
Dew so I’m gonna blame the new Mountain Dew Ice and it is good, but my apologies
for that whole section so thanks for sticking around with us to the end. Matt’s got all the information but if you can’t hear it straight from Matt
