- What is this?
This was the website for altimitmine @ Twitch
- So what happened?
I did not enjoy streaming to 0 viewers, so I stopped. :P
- HEY! I watched! Do I not count?
I appreicate those who stuck around, but I am not really in a mental state to give you the entertainment you deserve. The stress was starting to portray onto the stream, and it was not enjoyable.
- So now what?
I have made a new account called zefie_gaming. If it gets 50 follows, I may consider streaming again.
- So... this is a publicity stunt?
No. I don't care if it doesn't get the follows. I will stream again if the community wants it, but I am not actively looking for followers. It is primarly a viewer-only account.
- Okay, sure. So why a new account?
I have met many wonderful people on Twitch, many of those would shout me out every time I visited their stream. Coming in with a new name, they ask why the new name, and I can explain that I don't stream anymore, and thus don't get shouted out.
- I still don't get it.
Using the altimitmine account had an underlying expectation that I would stream. It takes a lot of work, and if you are a fellow caster, you know this. If you are a viewer, please understand that streaming takes A LOT of effort. Does my stream look OK? Hows the framerate? Hows the audio? Is my mic too loud? Is the game too loud? Why is my framerate dropping? Why are frames dropping? Etc etc. Doing this over and over to 0 viewers becomes more of a job than an enjoyable experience.
- We've (streamers) have told you to just get a schedule...
Again, I am not in a mental state to commit to a streaming schedule at this time.
- You didn't have to delete your Discord server though.
Everyone was leaving it anyway. And it was quite dead. Be honest. When was the last time you spoke in it? :P I am still on Discord, I just don't have my own now.
- So how do I get ahold of you now?
zefie_gaming @ Twitch, zefie @ Twitter, and I still have the same account on Discord, just renamed from "altimitmine" to "zefie"
- Will you ever stream again?
It is not out of the question, but don't expect anything, and certainly don't expect it soon
- What if you get the 50 followers you mentioned, won't that create the underlying expectation to stream?
Kinda, but I will still wait until I am ready.
- Will you still be supporting streamers on Twitch?
- Are you happier now?
A lil' bit, it is nice to be able to enjoy Twitch again without the expectation of streaming on it myself.
- I used your resources on my stream, what about them?
They are still available, except Royality-Free Radio.
