There is a few things that I as "part" of the Stream feel like saying right now, that need to be made clear as there is huge misconceptions about this thing, and a huge inbalance inbetween what is expected from the Streamers and what can be given. especially regarding the Critique this is getting.
1. When I applied for the Stream Team, there where now words of a neccessary amount of Streams per week to Stay in. Requirements have been made AFTER the Acception to the Team. Proper communication about it was done somewhere in Post some people might not have even seen. It was said that there is someone keeping an eye on Activity.
2. When I applied I did Specify my problems about beeing Online on a regular base.(See spoiler/application).
And that I rather try to put out Quality content then just sheer quantity.
I never specified to exclusivly Stream Dayzr, nor did I said I would.
3.The Concept of it all:
People from the Community Stream DayzRP and Quality footage gets thrown out by a rather famous Twitch partner through Auto-Host.
What happens at the moment is that the only Hosting is inbetween the DayzRP community Streamers exluding Wolfie as she is Hosting firends/Streamers she likes etc.
Wich is fine as it is her decision, but the Autohost's inbetween the RP Streamers is barely pushing the content out of the DayzRP community itself, as most of them are known within and their outreach in the Web is rather limited (just as mine, no offense guys. still love you all.)
4. My own absence of Streaming.
I had recently huge problems with my internet provider giving me amounts of up to 40% dropped Frames, and thus a huge loss in Quality. Wolfie has been aware of my Struggle with my Stream quality and tried helping me out. I later found the Problem wich was my Internet provider.
I have only been abled to get it fixed a few days ago, and thus my absence as ended.
I had a lot of fun when I rejoined RP, and had a lot fun Streaming it as a fun thing, a hobby.
Getting dragged into a Team that made it a "duty" to be active, that made it a task that I had to do. That I had to push for content in order to voluntarily help out the community, made it really hard for me to keep the level of quality that I was aiming for. I couldnt keep the amounts of viewers to Stay after joinin as I could before.
I am no content creator, I am a Paramedic, I am Streaming for my enjoyment and that kept people watching. I was enjoying it. people have been enjoying it.
As soon as I wasnt enjoying it my RP got mediocre at best. Not to mention the Stream. And Still I was obliged to be active and be aware of the fact that im representing the DayzRP community. So At some Point I stopped pushing for bad RP content that does nothing but throw a bad light on the community.
Making it a "Duty", me pushing my self to throw out the 2 Streams a week just ruined it the Fun. I got out of Ideas on what to do. Overall Quality decreased heavily and thus it got harder to push myself to enjoy it.
And Don't get me wrong here I am not blaming anyone for me failing to get Streams out. I am not blaming anyone but me for the loss of Quality.
But I just feel that people should be aware of the struggle this system has, before they start complaining.(No hate on you Rampage. But this is a great example)
As the quoting is not properly working on me: Post by Rampage,
I have never have had anything in my inbox concerning plans to do shit together, nor with any more information thatn that I am accepted. (as seen above
You expect the Stream Team to have preparations, to throw out content. But what many people are not aware of is that all those people do have Jobs, do have Christmas preparations, some have kids, I worked my 24h shifts during the Christmas days and have my family and I am still expected to throw out content like mad.
This is a group of Voluntary community supporters.
We are not hired.
We don't get Money.
We do this for our own enjoyment and because of the fact that we like the community and try to do our fare share.
People do Complain about inactivy, lack of quality etc.
But none of the problems have been adressed with the Streamers. at least not with me.
All of the things people complain about at the moment have been things the Pr Team was aware even before accepting me. ( If they read my App).
There is a "Content Creator meeting" incoming, that I am willing to attend, but only noticed just now, as the "designated Streamers" didnt even get a invite or anything. I need to apply for it just as anyone else. Im supposed to work for this community without even the least amount of effort to support it.
As I feel my post is getting out of hand here:
People should Stop ranting against people that have the same Goal as everyone else here, and maybe start talking with them.
If people whould have asked, it either beeing Staff, PR managers, Streamteam owners, or Members of this community, they would have gotten a sufficient answer.
And instead of just comlaining about something beeing not enough or whatever, people should maybe Support those who try to show this community to others, instead of just telling them how insufficient their work is.
I just don't feel like beeing talked on behind my back about a problem that has been communicated. Nor do I feel like beeing ranted on for not applying to Standards that I wrote in my application about not beeing abled to always meet them, and received after beeing accepted. with the owner/Pr well knowing that I wont be abled to always meet them.
I really Hope this could clarify a few things.
And I really hope people get an understanding of what might be going on (at least on my end).
My decision on how to handle this will be quit simple:
I am not going to increase the quantity of the Streams when I dont feel like pushing for good content, and try to get my enjoyment in streaming back and thus the quality.
And if the Quantity doesn't fit the requirements the RP wise inactive owner of the Team, and the PR-wise inactive PR manager is setting, and communitcating,I am stepping back from the Stream Team and will leave myself for the better.
Blessed New year all you guys.
