  1. Hey @PhiI , I had a small suggestion for you can better handle Subs and Patreon pledges so you're not inadvertently making people feel obligated to do both. For Twitch Subs I want to suggest something another streamer I watch does for his sub goal, 12 hour streams. The streamer I'm talking about has his sub goal event as a special 12 hour stream and it never changes. Doing this would give you a special event that Subs make happen without requiring Patrons to vote on anything, because it can be whatever you decide. If you must do a poll there are methods you can use to let only Subs vote on it. One is a Strawpoll-like service that you can set to require a Twitch log-in with a sub to your channel. ( https://streampoll.tv/index.php ) The other is an overlay that connects to stream chat; just boot it up, make the poll, set chat to sub-only for the poll and you're good. ( https://poll.ma.pe/ ) For Patrons, I suggest having Patreon goals again just smaller ones. The reward for hitting them can be either a Patron's choice playthrough or one of the marathons you like to do where the Patrons vote on what's played during it. For example, the current funding level shown on your Patreon is $614. Set the goal at $650 with one of those rewards and just let people know about it. Once it's hit up to $700 then $750 and so on in those smaller increments. Doing this would make them separate but still give good benefits to everyone no matter which way they choose to support you without feeling like they're missing out. It would require you to leave goals up for longer rather than require that they be hit within a month, but that's how you get natural growth.

    That's not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. Still has weird proportions though.
  3. And when was the last time either of you had anything to say about Phil that wasn't praise or defending him against something?

    Brightburn (2019)

    What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.
  5. You have a nasty habit of falling prey to the Streisand Effect, Phil. You want as little attention on this as possible yet you make a twitlonger, go on a rant on stream, and make this thread. It would've been better to just deny it once then let it go if you didn't want anyone talking about it.

    Thanksgiving message from Phil - support

    I think it's part of it. Having it set up like that kind of forces you to both sub to his twitch and pledge to his patreon to get the full benefits out of any given goal. A Patreon goal I don't necessarily think is necessary, but revamping the rewards very much is. The way he does Twitch now makes the majority of his Patreon rewards redundant. I can pay him $1 and get a text shout-out, verbal shout-out, and get a question answered. That's 3 patreon rewards for the price of one. I also feel that, currently, the way he has things set up inadvertently forces people to give Phil twice as much money every month. If I want an event to happen I have sub to his twitch, but if I want to suggest what he plays in that event I have to pledge to his Patreon. They need to be more separate, in my opinion. But doing that without anyone feeling like they're missing out is really difficult.

    I think revamping his Patreon and Twitch Sub rewards would be a good first step. It was never a good idea to have subs determine whether events happen then still have Patrons get the actual benefit from it.

    Your thoughts on the Halloween Horror Marathon

    I think, in a way, the patrons did pay for the marathon. They did pick the games after all, so what would it have been without them? This could be solved by simply researching games before you just okay them.
  10. Hey Phil, this is kind of half a question half a suggestion I'd like to hear your thoughts on. In the past, you've said that you juggle so many games at one time because you're a variety streamer. Well I watch other people I would call variety streamers and they have a very different method than you. What these other variety streamers do is choose one, maybe two, games and stick with what they pick until they beat it. As a result those streamers beat games well before you do, AC: Odyssey and Dragon Quest XI as a couple recent examples. Why don't you try to adopt a similar method and pare it back to two games at a time, one for day streams and one for night streams, and just play those until you beat them? I think this more focused method would result in you finishing games faster and even enjoying them more. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
