Subject: My YouTube channel   PostPosted: Thu Jun 15, 2017 5:55 pm Reply with quote

What better way to celebrate my 4,000th post on the forum than providing a link to my new YouTube channel?

My channel

I have lots of videos planned. The first video is more personal and gives you an idea of how all of this came to be. I'd like to do a faction for the Collection Review series about once a week, though that could definitely change. Check out the Question of the Day (QOTD) which will be in the description of each video! (I keep forgetting to ask it at the end of the videos lol)

I don't have a ton of packs I'd like to open (saving most of them for new players), so if you don't want packs for some reason I can open them for you on camera lol. Smile There probably won't be a ton of pack openings, but I have plenty of ideas for videos.

As for games, there's no reason not to upload games on the VASSAL module - even with no experience, it was easy to record the latest game of T2. I'll probably stream them live from now on, which will be fun heh. Physical games will be more difficult for a variety of reasons, with the biggest issues being the low-quality webcam and somewhat short (<1 hour) battery life of my digital camera. However, I'm not likely to play a lot of physical games in the short term anyway.

Feel free to give me feedback here, especially if you don't have a youtube/Google account! I am looking forward to improving over time, and as you might be able to tell from the pack openings, I have acquired a part for the tripod so now I can record with that. Also keep letting me know about ideas for videos! Subscribe for more! Very Happy

Subject: Commentary AND music!   PostPosted: Mon Jul 10, 2017 3:16 am Reply with quote

Alright, so my first game with just my commentary turned out good, so I'm less averse to it than I was just recently heh. Thanks to Vendari and Repkosai for bringing up the issues in the music-only BR style, and to those who took the video survey. I do think I like this combination of talking and music, as it lets me explain my fleet construction and in-game strategy while still allowing me to fill empty space with the thematic music that can help viewers get in a piratey mood. Smile

Will the ships FLOAT? Actually putting ships from Pirates CSG in the water

Also, a bunch of VASSAL games are up from the past couple weeks, including the first 4 player live game, which was also the first time Xerecs and I got to talk to each other personally!

(plus an OE pack opening heh)

Youtube has revoked my ability to live stream for some reason. It may have been because they deemed the consistent streams of VASSAL games "repetitive" or "spammy" despite them all being different. Confused Rolling Eyes

I appealed the decision, but if nothing happens I have to wait 90 days or something to stream there again. Who knows, I might get hit with the penalty again if I don't change something... for now I'll be recording games instead of live streaming them.

I have started a Twitch account (nothing there yet) and have looked into streaming live on Facebook. I hope to use both of these platforms for streaming this month. Thanks again for watching; my latest videos include a game from VASSAL Tournament #2 and another PotC pack opening.

Hmm... were you playing music audibly during a stream at all?

Yes, but I've done that from the very first stream, so it seems like they would have hit me quicker on that. On a separate note, the recording of the Team Fleet Challenge game has been deleted because it had music from the latest PotC movie. (unrelated as it came after my streaming "rights" were revoked)

YouTube's copyright enforcement is really inconsistent, so I'm gonna guess they hit you for music usage, and only caught you with automatic algorithms after a few videos.

I really don't think so. The copyright violation for music was completely separate and AFTER the thing that got me banned from streaming. Here is their email - I think it was "too repetitive" with the content, or they think I'm spamming. (I have lots of links to other sites in the description but that is the case for all my other videos too, including non-streamed videos)

Hi a7xfanben,

As you may know, our Community Guidelines describe which content we allow – and don’t allow – on YouTube. Your video "VASSAL Tournament #2 continues!" was flagged for review. Upon review, we’ve determined that it violates our guidelines. We’ve removed it from YouTube and assigned a Community Guidelines strike, or temporary penalty, to your account.

Video content restrictions

It's not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted, or repetitive content to YouTube. If the main purpose of your content is to drive people off of YouTube and onto another site, it will likely violate our spam policies. In addition, misleading descriptions, tags, titles, or thumbnails designed to increase views are not allowed. Tags should only be placed in the appropriate tag section and not in the description. Learn more.


This was completely different than the copyright violation I got hit with for the Team FC video, which had music from Disney and was automatically taken down because Disney wanted it gone.

For anyone reading this, don't worry, I'll be making lots more videos and hopefully even streaming again soon via FB and Twitch.

Wow, that's just silly. Funny how YouTube will take flag that as "repetitive" but won't do the same for accounts like Pewdiepie.
