none of you stepped up to the plate
B1ut none of us are DON ROGERS!
How many times has the public clamored for more! 'More Don Rogers!' we cried
But our cries fell upon deaf ears.

I'm saying, instead of clamoring for more of the old stuff, y'all could gotten with the new stuff and helped out instead of forcing me to struggle for a year to get a 3-viewer average. But you didn't. So, when I am a huge hit, and it comes time to thank the little people who made it all possible, GUESS WHO AIN'T ON THE LIST.

(You guys. You guys ain't on the list.)

Right, but I'm telling you - that's a lot of hoops to jump through.

First, we had to make a leap of faith that you would not abandon Twitch.
Then we had to register an account with Twitch.
Then we had to make time at what was like 6AM or 7AM to participate.
And then, what even was participation? Adding something to the text chat?

Come on man. They are not the same thing, a radio show and a Twitch stream. I am glad that you have created a community around it. I'll be sure not to drive them all off, individually and in concert, like you have done to me over the last 20 years. I'm happy for you. But let's not pretend that there wasn't an appeal to the radio show. Nobody ever understood why you didn't want to do it any longer, so of course there's going to be a melancholy interest there.

I tried watching your stream. I can't take it. It's as boring as every other 2-viewer stream on twitch. A dude playing a game while saying absolutely nothing interesting or entertaining, with shitty voice quality.

Ouch. Harsh.

I will say that if anyone did not find the PUBG / Fake News stream to be entertaining then they need to give their blood to their government because they are not using it any longer. That one I can vouch for.

Looking at this three days later: yep, way too harsh.

You did have some kind of pro or semi-pro mic in the past. What happened to it?

My new rig came with a mechanical keyboard, which I thought I'd try for a while, but it was way too loud with the real mic, so I just went with a headset for now.

You probably already know these exist, but just in case you don't:

Alright, the forum seems to delete links to Amazon. Search Amazon for "o-ring dampers".

Yeah, I'm not doing that. If it becomes an issue, I'll just move back to the non-mechanical.

The people who enjoy the stream don't seem to care that I'm using the headset, and if the content is "boring and uninteresting" to you, better voice quality isn't going to change that.

It didn't delete the link, just click on the picture.

Also, I would advice you step it up if you want to get on this year's MVP poll.

One of the things I have noticed about stuff like twitch is that the players stop talking while they are concentrating on the game. I believe that concentration co-efficient takes away from the interesting talking.

I watched a lot of the NES Zelda competitions and they use a play-by-play and a color guy. It makes it way more interesting. Could you, would you add a voice over after the video is recorded? to kinda fill in?

I'd suggest offering cash prizes for good suggestions but I know your reputation.
