So, I’ve been thinking quite a bit recently about what I want to do with the stream. I’d rather like to be able to stream as a full-time job, but that’s a little unrealistic at the moment. Some of these other things are a little easier. A little little, anyway.
One of the things I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and part of the reason I recreated the channel as DarkInsanities instead of AurorisTSW, was the idea of a stream team. Twitch has it’s official teams, but unless they make access to starting teams a thing for Affiliates, there’s effectively no chance of that happening. At some point, I’d really rather like to set something up on a more unofficial basis. StreamLabs has guilds, but I’m not sure that will work.
There are already elements of this, but nothing really that’s a thing. It’s something I’d like to do, but I need to talk to people who might be interested in helping me start, and we’d need to work out how we want things to be working. If anyone wants to offer thoughts, ideas or help on this, let me know, but in any case, stay tuned for things at some point.
There’s a lot of interesting news in gaming on a regular basis, most of which I sort of glance at then move on. I’m working on plans and ideas for doing some sort of weekly talk show, much like The Secret Podcast which Kle occasionally decides we need to record. In this case though, it would be live, for maybe up to an hour or so.
Basically I’d want to talk about interesting news from the week. Other people would be chatting as well of course, because that makes things more interesting. I’d probably do this on a Saturday afternoon or evening, do some quick editing and upload to YouTube for release on the Sunday. (Twitch Affiliate rules say you have to wait 24 hours before anything gets released.)
I’m currently aiming to start doing this around September, to celebrate 2 years of streaming. Also, I really need a name for the whole shebang. Something more specific than Dark Insanities, something to make it different, special and unique. Feed me ideas.
There are a few smaller scale things I want to do, which is mostly two things.
A: I’m looking to more or less redo the music things. There is some stuff I need to actually write emails for, and hope I get permission for stuff. Also, I need to actually sit down and do things.
B: I’m looking to match up a whole bunch of visuals. You’ll see if you look in the top and bottom left corners, you’ll see one particular font. If you look at anything I’ve actually put on the screen, it’s a completely different font. It’s stuff that I basically want to reconcile so that it’s all using that same font found down the left hand side. More things I just need to sit down and actually do.
Basically, there’s a whole lot of things that I need to change, and a whole lot of things that I want to add and do new things. I really want to hear everyone’s feedback on this, because most of this effort is to make things more interesting for you, so please do let me know what you think of all I’ve said above, as well as anything and everything else.
