FAQ – Streaming Edition!

No comments

Hey everyone! If you’re not aware, I’ve been streaming properly over on Twitch for the past few weeks, and it’s been so enjoyable. So you may have a few questions, and I’m more than happy to answer them! If you wanted to ask another question that isn’t featured, please feel free to comment and I’ll add it in!

Why stream?

I’d been wanting to stream for a while, and I was inspired by my good friend Kyle for this one. Apparently I streamed as far back as 2018, although I have no recollection of doing so.

It was in 2019 when I moved in with my boyfriend that I started taking it more seriously. But at the same time, there were so many times when I couldn’t face hitting that ‘Go Live’ button, and I struggled with my self-worth all the way up until mid-June this year. That’s when I made the decisions that I did, and I got to the point where I was comfortable with the idea of streaming eventually.

In early August, I wrote a tweet about accountability and my schedule – this helped me get the schedule down, and before you know it, I was streaming and enjoying it!

What do you stream? What’s the schedule?

I mostly stream Pokemon – either shiny hunting or challenge runs such as Nuzlockes. I also like to dabble in other games though. Some of the extra games played on my channel include The Binding of Isaac: Repentance and, well, I haven’t decided on what else yet!

I stream on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with bonus streams here and there if I have to reschedule. Saturdays are exclusively bonus, but may be a permanent fixture in the future.

I missed something on stream – where can I see it?

I’m looking into making a YouTube channel where I can upload VODs for your viewing pleasure, because I know Twitch don’t keep them around forever. This will mainly be for Nuzlocke playthroughs and story-based games.

(If you’re watching this in the future and I have a new channel for VODs, I’ll probably have edited this).

As for shiny reactions, I’m currently making a video to upload to YouTube in bulk. That way I’m not

I will post shiny reactions as they come on Twitter the day after stream, and you’ll find it by typing !recent in my chat!

Who made the emotes/sub badges?

My placeholder emotes were made by RoyRoyArt as premades, sold on their Etsy shop! I chose these purely for the Toxtricity, as that’s my favourite Pokemon!

The sub badges were also premades, made by ExtremeMadness, and they are the Animal Crossing zodiac star fragments. I originally intended these to be placeholders too, but I fell in love with them completely after I bought them, so I’ve decided to keep them permanently.

As of writing, I’m getting customs done!

Stream team?

I’m part of the lovely team known as The Cookie Jar! It’s founded by the lovely saint Nomeyy, and we want to basically bring a lot of positive vibes and wholesomeness to the community. I say it’s working really well so far, and it’s a very new team, but I’m definitely honoured to have been invited to it even before making Affiliate! Everyone in the community is genuinely amazing, and they even did an offline Hype Train and made me cry (thanks!).
