Hi AH,

It’s been a little while since the last update to the DCUI app (6/28/21, by my info). Do you know if there’s anything new coming down the pike?

In particular, have you heard anything about any imminent improvements to the custom user lists? I last asked about it back in March, when we had a special Office Hours with product manager Aric, but I haven’t heard anything since. Is this still being worked on by the dev team? The ability to move comic issues around on lists after they’ve been added is sorely needed, and has been for a while. Thanks!

I got a confusing, weird email today about NFTs from DC. I redeemed the code. But like, what’s the point of it? I don’t understand. I know NFT is like some form of crypto-currency. Am I suppose to be able to read the comic I received or is it just something pretty to look at? :woozy_face:

It just doesn’t make sense to me why DC is doing this or what that means for me. Am I making money off of my pretty image? I read the FAQs but just makes it more confusing… maybe this is just the turning point in my life in becoming “old” :older_woman:

I got mine as well, not sure what to do with them either.

I also got the e-mail about the NFT, but haven’t done anything with it, yet.

Its a neat idea, and appreciated, but a code that could be redeemed in the DC Shop would be of greater interest for me.

On another note @Alec.Holland, what’s moving and shaking in your comic ecosphere as of late? Did you get a chance to read Soul Plumber #1, yet?

How come the blu-ray releases of the Doom Patrol and Harley Quinn TV series are so light on bonus features? If any TV shows deserve a full blown release with audio commentaries, documentaries, and other extras, it would be these ones.

I haven’t even gotten an email yet even though I have an account and did as I was told.

I tend to get my questions in a day or so early anyway. This is just in case I can’t make it or if I forget.

I just sent an email so hopefully I’ll get the required information soon.

What is an NFT?

It’s very likely due to the continuing, overall decreasing consumer interest in physical media, in most cases.

If consumers are spending less on the product, then studios aren’t going to foot the bill for special features-loaded releases as they once did, many years ago.

It’s unfortunate, but that’s just how things are in the physical media side of the home video industry, right now.

Boutique labels like The Criterion Collection, Shout Factory and Arrow Video (among others) will spend money for deluxe releases, because those are their bread and butter and what keep their lights on, but for giant companies like Warner Brothers, Disney and the like, spending money on high-quality physical home video product is getting to be a much smaller priority than it once was.

Non-Fungible Tokens.

I don’t know the particulars, but generally speaking, they appear to be similar to cryptocurrencies in some aspects.

As for NFTs in the DC ecosphere, they appear to be akin to digital collectibles. I’ve only read a tiny amount about them, but the article on the DC homepage from last week or so made them out to be collectibles that have different comic covers on them…I guess? :man_shrugging:

It wasn’t really of interest to me, so I skimmed the article fairly quickly, but that was the gist I got from it.

There has been some heated debate this week, regarding the acceptability of Ranch Dressing Shots, what’s your opinion?
