"First in friendship."
i always gif after it airs in america because it’s an american show
ahh i live in the u.k so tv-wise we’re MONTHS behind! so i have to livestream at 1am ahaha. and i wont be giffing the sneak peek BUT i think a lot of other people have! i noticed a few gifs in the arizona robbins tag! :)
because it’s not exactly fair? i live in the u.k so i could easily stream it wednesday and post then, but some people who can’t stream wouldn’t be able to scroll down their dashboards on their phones and stay away from the sets. the castle fandom does the exact same thing as i’m suggesting. its good manners. so what if you’re waiting /a day/ to post a gifset? if everyone else is posting at the same time after the episode on thursday nights LIKE THEY ALWAYS HAVE DONE then there’s no need to worry about “if its already been giffed”. it’s just common courtesy. manners. something a lot of people have forgotten.
another important thing is grey’s ratings in america will drop SIGNIFICANTLY if people choose to watch on wednesday instead of thursday, and soon enough there wont be a show left to gif. if you’re opposing what me and A LOT OF OTHER GIF MAKERS are suggesting, then it seems to me like you’re more worried about getting your sets out first/gaining more notes/gaining more followers than you are about the actual show you’re giffing. if grey’s ratings drop then the show could potentially be dropped. simple as.
YOU GET MORE TIME TO CREATE MORE GIFSETS IF YOU WATCH ON WEDNESDAYS AND DON’T POST TIL THURSDAY. YOU GET TO CREATE BETTER QUALITY EDITS BECAUSE THERE ISN’T THAT RUSH OF “WHAT IF SOMEONE HAS ALREADY GIFFED IT AND POSTED- OH GOD I’LL JUST POST THIS HOW IT LOOKS EVEN THOUGH I CAN DO BETTER” THING.
the simple point is there is /absolutely no reason/ for someone to NEED to post on wednesday night. the only reason is the self-centered reasons stated above. there’s a queue option on here for a reason.
could we ALL make it a thing that we don’t post edits/gifs of the upcoming greys season until after the episode has aired on thursday nights. this is due to the change in schedules resulting in canada eventually being shown the episode a day earlier than the u.s. reblog and spread the word.
5 weeks of thursday night normality until grey’s ratings in america drop as people turn to streaming on wednesdays via ctv. the end is nigh
i love the many hours of phone calls with lauren before bed and it’s hands down my favourite part of the day but they make me miss her 28495826 times more when it comes to hanging up and trying to sleep and waah
A few months ago, Justin Chambers came to Belgium and I was clueless to why he paid this random visit until I saw this on the TV and screamed.
