Frontier have anointed chosen ones again...

Hows this for a compromise, I step back and let you get the goody bag, you keep the streamdeck and give me the razor earbuds for withdrawing from the running and I keep my impartiality?

(And of course we are joking - but I'll pm you my address for the earbuds :p)
(as we are joking) Deal!

EDIT: If anyone is thinking we are being OTT with the reminders that we are joking, it's because it is too easy for things to be taken seriously on this forum, and we both know we stand zero chance of getting anything, but a little humour doesn't hurt.

Do people actually listen to influencers or "anointed" ones? I actively avoid almost all of them on Youtube.
I assume we will not find out the truth until actual normal, regular, real players get their hands on the game, or a beta comes out and I can see for myself.
to some degree, yes, they do...and they can have an immeasurable affect on their loyal audience.

Hey All,

Firstly

It has come to my attention that there is talk of content creators and influencers having access to an ’Alpha program’ with regards to Odyssey.

I want to be clear that there is no such program in place at Frontier.

Working with content creators.

Part of my role at Frontier is working with existing and NEW content creators to spread the reach of Elite Dangerous and news regarding it.

Some of these initiatives are already in place and we are already working with creators to that end, as you may or may not have seen.

If you are interested in collaborating with us, Stephen posted in the forums (see link) in order for you to supply your details so we can take a look at your work.

There have been a lot of questions around what the criteria is for being considered and the short answer is there is nothing set. We look for creators that fit the initiative we are currently working on. If you are not selected, this is in no way a reflection on your work or our support of you.

This is a long road and we are only just beginning; a large part of the reason for switching the Elite Dangerous stream back to its own channels was, in large, due to our wish to support the community via hosting streams.

There are so many of our community that are truly talented and we are honestly flattered that you would like to work with us - where and when we can, we will find ways to do this.

Thanks Arf

Just to say - I'm happy if streamers get an early look at the update and can share their views with us - seemed to work really well for Cyberpunk & Star Wars Squadrons. If you have no such program .. maybe you should consider it :)

(And don't worry about the forums - they're always unhappy when anyone else gets anything :ROFLMAO: )

But... how..

Apart from the minor issues in the op this has nothing to do with the game so is not a serious issue. People have diverse views on the social media content creators on the forums so there was a chance to make an interesting discussion.

If anything, i would really like to know if you sent the yamicks one :) Can't wait for his next video if you did (or did not). heh heh heh

Well, as you have asked so nicely, I'm prepared to do a one-off stream for you.

I don't know what a stream is, but I presume it is a bit like giving a sample at the doctors.

My only request, is that you have to refer to me by my commander name, and not my forum name, else I may start an angry and speculative thread on the forums about it.

Also, can I haz your stuff?


Yours most graciously, but with zero humility,
The Hat :)

Just one question, since that might take some "edge" out of the discussion :

- when Frontier "collaborates" with Content Creators or so-called Influencers... does Frontier provide anything material (Money, Hardware or anything equivalent) to these?

That's usually where alot of people draw a line. Clearing up this specific question might defuse the topic considerably.

Good point, and very pertinent.

I'd only mention that the thread wouldn't be nearly as much fun though :(
 
The forum has gone a bit Mad Max with everyone clamouring for Immortan Joe to look at them.

WITNESS ME! NO ME! ME! short guy jumps up Meeeeeeee



rasps

BUT DO NOT....BECOME ADDICTED... TO LIVESTREAMS OR STREAMERS...

So.... what you're really saying....is that Lord Dave is Immortal Joe?
