In March 2012, Ridgedog became involved in an unfortunate situation involving former member Pat Woodward (Peva). Words having been exchanged in a less than professional manner on both sides, Ridgedog fired and banned Pat from the Yogscast for verbally abusing fellow members and other immature actions on Peva's part. Ridgedog has since admitted to handling the situation in a not quite professional manner, but things could have been handled better on both sides.
Ridgedog has starred as a referee in the Survival Games, The Walls, and the Crown Conquest games played by the members of the Yogscast and other notable YouTubers.
Ridgedog has also played the villain, on Martyn's Christmas ADVENTure, the Grinch. As well as appearing during the 2012 Christmas Livestream, notably when he took the stream on 29th December, playing Kerbal Space Program.
Ridge was previously responsible for planning Shadow of Israphel but recently changed to being responsible for the everyday Yogscast videos. He finds mods, adventure maps and indie games for Yogscast members, mainly Simon and Lewis, to play. He often does this on his livestreams.
