I've streamed on a consistent basis for about 2 years now. Was about to hit 1200 followers soon and tonight I randomly got a huge wave of followers. My viewer count didn't go up at all. Then all of the accounts started spamming "nice shot!" lol
My main question is why? Who benefits from this? Certainly not me. Having an artificially inflated follow count will do nothing for anyone.
There's no published Chrome version because Google demands money, although the same addon works fine between both browsers interchangeably.
I can't get the affiliate's agreement stuff to open at the moment to check for myself. But I wish to know, is Twitch gonna have mood swings at me if I discuss in a public forum just how much of a cut they take?
So guys,recently I started thinking about streaming.I'm from a slavic country called Slovakia but I don't have any sort of that Russia/Slavic accent.I was thinking of starting streaming bcs it seemed fun and I considered myself as a almost native English I became insecure since my American stepmom told me that she didn't understand what I said.The reason can be that I'm not trying my best when speaking English in front of her cause I'm kinda shy when in front of her,but otherwise I'm not that shy...The question is: Can I start streaming if I would speak English while trying my best?
I’ve searched for the past two hours to see if anyone had this issue but I came up with nothing. My PS4 says it’s broadcasting but when I go to my twitch page all I see is past broadcasts. Before I turned off saving past broadcasts twitch would display my live broadcasts as past broadcasts with a delay of a minute or two. WTF IS going on?!?
I recently started streaming, and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I do have a few questions though, and would like to get some guidance and opinions of others.
Since I started streaming last week, I've been streaming every night. It's been fun! But I am extremely tired, and I can see myself burning out if I don't make a change. It's hard to be that high energy that often. I am thinking of implementing a schedule with 3 days a week, where I play for 3 hour chunks at a time. If I get the urge to stream outside of that, then I intend to go live whenever - but I WILL be going live for those times I intend to commit to. If anything, I will be providing bonus time. Is this an effective way to handle a schedule? Also, with the holidays coming up, I am worried that I may miss some days for leaving town and whatnot. If I communicate days that will be missed in my panels on the channel, can I mitigate some of the paint that may arise due to this?
Secondly, I intend to be a variety streamer. I am doing this for fun, so I want to play what I want to play, especially now when I have no real viewer base. Some of what I play are single player games - for example the Outer Worlds and the new Pokemon. Streaming is fun, but gaming is how I relax. For single player games like these which may have some kind of narrative, is it bad to stream portions of it and then play it when I am not streaming as well? This could lead to gaps in gameplay for viewers (assuming there are any) and might be problematic - at least that's what I'm thinking, but I'm curious if anyone else has experience with this.
Any insight would be helpful, I want to do a good job, but I don't wanna burn out on my passion for gaming because I am pushing my stream too hard in addition to my full time job.
