This week's featured article

Rooster Teeth is the RPF fandom centered around the employees of the YouTube company Rooster Teeth Productions, often specifically the members of the division known as Achievement Hunter.

The company was founded in 2003, but fanwork-related activity began in late 2012. The fandom is generally considered to be separate from Rooster Teeth's regular demographic of young male gamers, which does not seem to produce fanworks, and the Ragehappy name was created to clarify this situation.

In February 2015, seven members of the Machinima Inc. YouTube group Inside Gaming left that network and joined Rooster Teeth, forming the LA-based Funhaus office. The original, founding members were: Adam Kovic, Bruce Greene, Lawrence Sonntag, James Willems, Joel Rubin, Matt Peake, and Sean "Spoole" Poole.
