    It would cause more trouble then it's worth, both the social media team and the competition team are made to have a little interference needed from the higher ups / admins as possible. As I mentioned above and Matt has mentioned above, adding this would cause more for the higher ups / admins to do. It would add more for Matt to do as well considering the amount of back and forth that goes through setting things like this up.

    If we wanted to cut corners then there would be no social media team, there would be no Instagram, there would be no Streamer rank, and tweets / Youtuber promotions would happen once a decade because it would be up to Noobcrew to handle.


    I'll hit up mattenphew about changing that.

    If they apply for the Streamer rank and meet the requirements of the Streamer rank, they would get the Streamer rank (assuming we promote them).

    If they apply for the Youtube rank and meet the requirements of the Youtube rank then they would get the Youtube rank (Again, assuming we promote them).

    If you have any-more questions or concerns about it then I would hit up mattenphew on discord (mattenphew#5863) or make a conversation with him on forums. If you really want to discuss this topic and/or have some of it changed, then msging him privately will be your best bet.

    You don't have to stream on twitch because you can stream on youtube, mixer etc.


    Noice!

    what does that have to do with my comment exactly?.. that's what I am saying that it shouldn't be "link to twitch profile" in the streamer template and rather in general a "streaming" profile that you use on any website. (being appropriate of course..) I don't know why you seemed to have misunderstood that lol.

    As said in the thread, you can apply for it here. However, please make sure to meet the requirements and follow the template provided before trying to apply for it.

    Lol what? So the mods who spend countless hours enforcing the rules ingame, on forums, and on the discord get absolutely nothing, whereas streamers instantly get titan. Not only this, but they don’t even have to prove themselves as good streamers. An instant upgrade sounds absolutely ridiculous to me. This makes no sense at all.

    The requirements stand as idols to enforce the fact that the streamer HAS to have put time and effort into their platform. As a streamer myself, I really think that the upgrade is quite gratuitous, and will help with the content of the video.
    EXAMPLE: In Infection, a streamer with Titan armor can last a whole lot longer than someone without a rank, agreed? This means, in terms of their livestream, more of the focus can be on them, further enticing the audience and captivating them. Basically, its good content, in exchange for more publicity and exposure for the server. Do you see the tradeoff?

    I hope this makes sense~

    Yep, there are requirements, just like with the other ranks. This doesn't mean that once the person has received the position, they will fulfill the requirements or be a good fit for the position. There have been some very terrible moderators and inactive youtubers.

    Your second point basically proves the fact, to your audience, that Mineverse is extremely pay to win. If you have to have titan rank to have a better, more enjoyable stream, then there is something wrong with how the server is built. I'd also argue that the main audience of both streamers and video creators are people who are already captivated with the server (and if not the server, they are friends with the video creator). I'd love to see the statistics of how many people are actually brought into the server from these avenues, but obviously, that's not possible. However, my guess is that these ranks don't do nearly as much for the server as people assume they do. Especially with the streamers and youtubers having such small audiences (like, 100 active subscribers/followers), I highly doubt they bring in much publicity.

    My argument isn't as much to not give this perk (Titan rank) to the streamers, but to also give it to Moderators who equally deserve it. I'm not salty that Mods don't get this because I was mod in the past or whatever (because I'm already Titan), but I feel like a Moderator should deserve as much or more than a person who literally just plays the server and advertises it to their small audiences.

    While I can't speak for the balance of the server, I can give some insight to the benefits of having a streamer. My channel, which I am incredibly active on, brings in 15-20 live viewers, on average. Of course, thats not always a consistent number, as what I'm doing/the day that I'm streaming could affect who is in the stream. For example, my last stream I peaked 40 viewers. But on other days, its around 13-15.

    The key for successful streaming is to always interact with the chat. The chat is the most interactive way to engage audiences, as chat members are able to treat the streamer not as a higher up, but as a fellow gamer. Furthermore, when I'm streaming games that can interact and engage the chat, and even encourage them to join along, it is both beneficial to the game (i.e. the server I'm streaming) and the streamer. I will also say that whenever I stream Mineverse, I make an announcement to everyone in my discord community, an environment with almost 300 members. Viewers of my stream, and I'm sure of others, are always given the opportunity to join in. With that being said, the draw of Mineverse is very alluring, and live streaming it can only be beneficial in the long term scheme of things.

    Again, I can't comment on the rank balances, or even the moderation, but I do think it would be very beneficial, and rewarding, to those who are accepted of these specific ranks. :) <3

    Just to confirm a point. They're only given the titan rank for the amount of time they hold the streamer rank. Once they resign/get demoted, they lose the rank.
    Mods are rewarded for their time on the server, so it's not as unjust as you're making it out to be.

    ^ To add onto this I will say that some titan perms are already a part of the staff ranks. On bedwars and survival, the staff ranks inherit titan which means they get every single perk titan has. On Skyblock we also get /vanish, /god, /invsee etc which are titan perks. Either way, making the staff ranks inherit titan sound more like a suggestion than a rant topic on this announcement. I agree that all staff having /enchant on Skyblock would be beneficial, as I always have to tell people I'm not titan when people ask me to enchant for them. But it's only me and freak on the staff team that aren't Titan, so this change would only apply to me and him anyway.

    Anyway: Thanks Gb, Janice and Crew! I was hoping to see this rank way earlier and I'm glad you pushed for it gb c:
