    Where would you prefer to watch Shadow Era livestreams?

    Hey all! So I've been enjoying doing SE YT videos again. Looking at starting doing some livestreams again so I want to ask the community: where do you prefer to watch livestreams? Do you prefer those on:

    YouTube (Google)
    Twitch (Amazon)
    Mixer (Microsoft)
    DLive (Independent)

    I also know everyone is spread out. I'm on the east coast of the US. Maybe the best time for me to try to include as many people as possible would on the weekends in the afternoon so its not too late for europe.

    I would prefer YT since not everybody has a Twitch Mixer etc. account, and everybody can watch it more easily.

    As much as I'd love to see SE on Twitch, I agree that very few people would watch it. Still, if things change with future updates it would be a good idea.

    One thing with YouTube is that I'm going to have to stick to just in-game music as opposed to Twitch. YouTube actively shuts down streams if you play copyrighted music, unlike Twitch.

    I don't see that as a problem. If there will be any commenting, that would be enough.

    I also want to let everyone know who doesn't live in the US or is not paying attention.

    Starting on Jan 1, 2020, ALL content that has games, cartoons, animations, toys, sports, music, and pets are subject to the FTC's COPPA on YouTube. This includes Shadow Era since it is a game. This means Shadow Era videos will not be searchable on YouTube, will not show up in suggested/recommended, and you will not be able to post comments on them. This also means I will not be streaming on YouTube starting on Jan 1 regardless of this poll.

    I will likely move my video content to BitChute or DTube (or both) and will be streaming on Twitch. It sucks but it's the law. YouTube will not be a useable site for games in 2020.

    There is still some time for this to change but, as it currently stands, that is the situation on YouTube. The FTC is the US government's Federal Trade Commission. COPPA has to do with children (by law under the age of 13) getting targeted advertisements. This is how platforms make money (by tracking what you watch and showing you advertisements based on what you watch). Which means, anything that children might watch cannot have these advertisements.
