Bottom line, the new site has been live for less than 24 hours. I can't verify anything W&N say, so I have to evaluate their words vs what I see. It fits with what BernerBraun does and what we're seeing on Tested now. What do they even care about tested.com, some additional audience? annoying definition: 1. making you feel slightly angry: 2. making you feel slightly angry: . I don't want to be all "the sky is falling" but even if that is the case, it sounds like they're throwing them a bone. We are going along with us because it is literally the OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME. It'll always be Will and Norm's Tested to me. I guess people have every right to be cynical when corporations are involved, but still... Jamie and Adam are two very busy dudes, why wouldn't they want two content producing nerds, Will and Norm, to work on the site and then chime in from time to time? Even my wife who couldn't care less about Tested thought that kind of sucked. © 2021 GIANT BOMB, A RED VENTURES COMPANY. I'll be happy if I turn out to be wrong, but I don't see why it's childish to know how these things work. I don't think Jamie and Adam knew what Tested was before their involvement, and I doubt they have any sort of grasp (and probably don't care) about the drastic changes the site and it's users are currently going through. A norm-referenced test (NRT) is a type of test, assessment, or evaluation which yields an estimate of the position of the tested individual in a predefined population, with respect to the trait being measured. Well it is to me, certainly more so than "hey, a new mobile phone I'll never own". With all of the money the Mythbusters have, it is absolutely bewildering to me that some people think they were so incapable of creating their own website they had to steal a website from someone else, then launch an overthrowing conspiracy to get rid of the old people. Meh. I don't think they've ever even met.). In time, you should be seeing their face on the front page more including their old tweet box. I mean look, Will and Norm can say whatever they want and I think they are a couple of very trustworthy dudes, but what Will is saying and what I'm seeing doesn't exactly match up. EXPLOSIONS!! Yeah, your'e right. Calculate the T score using the … It fit well with one of the company's other clients who are helping to make a new show....can you guess who that is? And if that causes Will and Norm to get shunted into the shadows, fuck everything. In such sampling, the mean of the norms sample is usually a biased estimate of the mean of the norms population. I LOVE MYTHBUSTERS!! Nothing but bad will for their site in that case. (not saying that this thread did this but most of the new posts on the forums of all the sites have generally been doomsday posts). It should be a great thing for the site. Whose faces are the top of the site? I don't care what they spin it as. Why not just start up something with your own people in that case? Their site was stolen. I thought it would be interesting to share with you guys and it could shed some light on the situation with Giant Bomb. I wish Will & Norm the best, I'm just too much of a realist for my own good and I'm trying to read between the lines a little. This constitutes simple cluster sampling. After 8 years of recording the podcast, we're refocusing our energies on other Tested projects including the bi-weekly livestreams. The Mythbusters already got their pictures up, so why the naming? @ Will or @Norm - Social Network integration Created by Leekspin on March 15, 2012, ... it can be turned off in your user account settings but I'm not always logged in at work or at home and its just really annoying. @Marokai: You realise you are saying "Will & Norm, you guys are so dumb, I know what's best for your careers, listen to me instead of yourself despite me not knowing all the details"?

I'm not sure if I think Will & Norm were legitimately starstruck by the Mythbusters dudes or if they're just acting excited because they are trying to protect their jobs and that is what they were expected to do. They may be genuinely happy, but even if they weren't what would they say? Sorry, Wil, but I don't buy any of that. in each school selected are tested and included in the norms, provided they are at the proper grade level or levels. When Will's talking about how he "hopes" they can sit down with Jamie and Adam to do a podcast or a video where they address the community but that it might not happen because those guys are so busy, it just makes me think that this isn't REALLY Jamie and Adam's website. Sadly, my prediction is that Will and Norm will be relegated to nothing more than staff writer positions and will eventually leave to explore better opportunities, as will most of the existing Tested community.
