Guys, if you're going to stream, change the channel title before you do so.
Frankly, there's a lot of streamed content that I don't really care about, or at least don't care enough to bother to watch. On the other hand, there are some things that I probably would be interested in. The thing is, when I get a subscription alert saying the channel is streaming I have no fu**ing way of knowing what I'd be watching if I tuned in without actually going to the effort of doing so. All I get is the standard "HardDrop.com Broadcasting Live" crap.
Twitch gives you a feature to let you tell subscribers what your content is going to be from the title. It's in the dashboard. fu**ing use it.
And if you're using XSplit (and I assume most/all of you are) then it's even easier because there's a damn "Announce" tab in the menu bar of the program and you can do it right from that.
I feel there's a basic professionalism and responsibility required using the stream, and this sort of thing is seriously not difficult and I would expect would make a huge difference to the number of people who watch (and also potentially help work out what sort of stuff actually pulls live viewers). If people are going to stream and spam my inbox twice a day then it'd be nice to at least know what is being streamed, and it's an extremely basic thing to do.
I agree on this 100%. It's annoying whenever I check up on HD's twitter, every so often, to see 5 tweets about stream but no title to them. Adam started putting up titles, and I hope everyone else who has access to the stream will start doing so. Otherwise it looks like spam on our Twitter feed.
Also I have to add this on, if you're a new member and you want to commentate.. we're not stopping you from joining in on the commentary, however, you must know the game. If we're giving you instructions on how to get onto the game or you obviously have never played the game.. or don't know the game, why would we want you to commentate with us? There's a reason why the streaming channel is not open to just everyone now, we want quality streams and commentary on our channel.
