ETA I do appreciate that you are making an effort, and wish you every success.
Please keep in mind, there are still a lot of 'old-schoolers' among this community, some of which deliberately avoid any of the modern social media platforms. I for one gave my smartphone away 6 month ago, since then I'm only using a retro mobile phone without internet access. Never regret this decision and just stay away from any tools that require mobile apps. Don't think for a second I'm nothing but a freaked out misfit here just because I'm not part of the vocal majority. Unless you want to produce games exclusively for youngsters of course. Think about it...This feedback is useful, the team will be able to evaluate whether posting all livestreams on the forums would be useful to community members. The only livestreams that aren't currently posted on the forums are the Monday lunchtime let's plays, all other streams are.
I have no problem with you posting to 'third' party social media sites, but this forum is your home, your base and where announcements should be posted first.The reason streams are great to be posted to Twitter, .
I always thought Twitch and Mixer were for watching other gamers play, not a couch chat. ESO and Forza seem to have no issues with livestreaming on YouTube but what do they know? If FD can't go to the "trouble" of taking a livestream and uploading it to YouTube, well that says a lot about FD, doesn't it?I personally think those are far better platforms for live streaming what's a bit of a community event. They mostly focus the running stream and have decent chat functionality. On Youtube I always feel like it's a random offline video with a borderline unusable afterthought chat and all the usual distractions on the side.
Yeah, I can watch the Twitch replay on Twitch but I won't be notified because I am not subscribed, and I won't subscribe just for one stream. I know it's possible to export a Twitch recording to YouTube, you have accounts on both platforms, how hard is it to put the replay on YouTube so that YouTube subscribers can get notified that there's a new video? Getting more eyes on your content and livesteams is the logical thing to do.It is absolutely not because some parts of the community are worth talking to and others are not. Elite has a well established streaming schedule, Monday lunchtimes and Thursday evenings, which has been ongoing for years. All streams are announced on social media, because people can get immediate notifications for when we are about to go live, whereas they cannot on the forums. We post our FrX streams to Twitch and Mixer as we currently find this to be the best method for people to watch our daytime streams. You can watch replays of the stream after it is posted and, as they are highlighted, they won't disappear. Things like where our livestreams are posted is decided through feedback we have gotten and absolutely not because the members of the community team actively pick and choose who they think are worth talking to.
I, too, am not on friendbook or tweester.I have no problem with you posting to 'third' party social media sites, but this forum is your home, your base and where announcements should be posted first.
Not everyone is on twatter or friendface, you folk just never seem to 'get it' do you?
Just get out your filofax, write on the last Friday of each month 'check ye twitch verily for ye frontier xtra videocast forsooth'. You can use a modern fountain pen, or a quill if you're more comfortable with that.I, too, am not on friendbook or tweester.
i know. but they can ask the devs, or talk about their own experiences, or crack some jokes on the trivia of a bug's life in frontier.I don't think the community managers fix the bugs.
