I run an extremely friendly, welcoming community. We base ourselves in kindness and inclusion. All of my community is generally willing to help out, whether its game advice and knowledge or technical assistance. My channel centres around myself and the people that I bring together for fun games, chilling together…

COMMUNITY BUILDING WITH DISCORD

This series is designed to give you some tips and ideas on how to set up your Discord server to not only provide added benefits to your followers, but also to make sure we protect people in our community and make sure everyone who joins your server knows what to expect and how to behave within your community.

Discord Permissions are a little complicated at first. There’s a tonne of options for each role and it’s very easy to get lost with which roles can do certain things. Don’t worry though, we’re going to go through everything step by step and try and explain everything along the way.

BUILDING A TWITCH CHAT BOT & OVERLAY

Discord is a streamer’s best friend. It’s a great way to build your own, personal community outside your stream. Set up in the right way, you can really put a bit of your personality into your Discord server.

RANDOM THOUGHTS

With Mixer shutting down today I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect back on my time as part of the platform…

Thanks for the memories Mixer

Mixer was my streaming home for nearly 3 years. In that time I made lifelong friends, overcame crippling anxiety, became a father, and started an amazing journey as a community developer and occasional moron behind a camera.

STREAMING TIPS

Chat interaction is one of the most important parts of streaming. The majority of your active viewers have come to talk to you and feel like they’re part of your show and your community. So how do you balance running your stream, playing your game, talking to party AND interacting with chat all at the same time?

Good chat interaction is what sets you apart as a streamer. Platforms are full of people sat playing games and not talking. The streamers that do the best put more effort into interacting with their chat than anything else.

I’m an average dad with below average gaming skills. I mainly play Destiny 2. I am up before the rest of the house so I can get a few hours of peaceful gaming before the day begins.
