A Request for Ideas

I need some feedback on something. I’ve been thinking for a long time about how I want a better name to refer to the viewers by other than “The Viewers”, “The Chat”, and stuff like that. It just feels like I’m referring to a function or a statistic rather than people. I know the community have referred to themselves as the “Flock” in small amounts off and on over the years and I do kind of like that one, but I want an actual name for when I want to address viewers of the show in general.

You know, like how Day[9] calls his viewers the “Day Knights”. That’s awesome. It sounds cool, it rhymes, and I feel pretty badass knowing I’m a Day Knight, because Day[9] is awesome. When I need something to watch on the side while I work, it’s always either Video Games Awesome or Day[9]’s Mostly Walking. I want something like that.

Does anyone have any ideas?

What would you like to see here?

Hey everyone, Mah-Dry-Bread here.  I want to start by saying that I’m quite happy I started this website.  Although there is not much on it and not many people visit it regularly, it gives me a platform to message the more hardcore of viewers as only they are the ones who really check up on this.  I can ask questions here and get responses that I likely wouldn’t get in a video.  With a video, I have to bank on people being free to watch it, interested in watching it, and to know the video exists.  On a busy Youtube day they could miss it.  With a post here, it’s pretty hard to miss.  It’s on the top of the page for days.

It’s also quite useful as it allows google to archive everyone on my website and slightly help my search results.  It’s very minor, but it’s still something.  Plus having an area to have a “Team” list to introduce new people to long time guests on my channel helps.

What would you like to see on this website?  That’s the point I’m getting to.  I want to hear everyone’s ideas.  Let’s brainstorm this thing together.

New Live Chatroom!

Thanks to Dyphnus we now have a live chatroom where the community can all talk!  There is a link to it at the top of http://MahDryBread.com.  I’m pretty new to these IRC things myself so if you need any help with stuff, asking Dyphnus in the chat room would probably help you out most.  Enjoy!

RimWorld Streaming Update

Hey all 15ish of you who go on my website every day!  Honestly I should just say “Hey Sweden” with how like, 75% of the people here are from Sweden.

Hey Sweden!  Apparently you like my stuff because you come here every day.  Did you know I’m streaming RimWorld live on February 12th?  Probably, but I’m going to put it here anyway.  It’s gonna be at 4pm EST.  Sweden is 6 hours ahead of EST, right?  So for you it’s starting at 10pm, although I think you might use a 24 hour clock.  So 22 I think?  Something like that.

Anyway I hope to see you in the chat!  Praise be to King Carl XVI Gustaf and Lord IKEA.  Meatballs for all.  Swedish things!

New “The Team” Page!

I just published a new page on the site that you can find on the top menu called “The Team”.  It gives a quick rundown of who everyone on my show is to help make it a bit more friendly to new viewers.  I’d like to get pictures on it one day, however I’ll have to try and find a way to do that without killing the formatting of the page.  I’m still new to this whole “building a website” thing.

Let me know what you think of the new page!

Baby’s First Website.

Hey everyone, Mah-Dry-Bread here.  I’ve spent quite a bit of time the last two days working on this site and I think I have it at a point where I can use it.  What for?  I have no idea, but it looks decent, right?

So I’m going to have to figure out exactly what I want to do with this.  Part of me wants to just link all of my videos here so it’s like a Youtube video feed of just my videos so people can easily watch my stuff without relying on Youtube’s own feed.  It tends to filter stuff out all the time that you want to see.  I have to manually go on Day[9] and Extra Credit’s channels every week because their stuff just doesn’t show up on my feed most of the time despite me being subscribed to them.  I want to avoid that happening with my channel.

My only worry about doing that with my website is that I do upload a lot of videos a day.  Maybe it would be useful?  I don’t know, but I’d appreciate your feedback on it.  I could also do blog posts here, but that’s kinda also what I do on Facebook and more people use Facebook, although this is a good alternative for people who don’t use Facebook.  I could cross-post blog stuff to both my website and Facebook, although it may end up being pointless.

You’ll notice there is a “Categories” section on the right side of the screen there.  I’d love to have my backlog put there, but that would mean I have to go through and post every single video I’ve ever done here.  That would be difficult.  On the plus side, really I’d just have to post the playlist of finished things for playthroughs.  For stuff like Payday 2 101 though, I don’t know how I’d do that since I really should post individual videos.

You’ll notice that at the top of the page, there is a “Forum” menu that takes you to the forum.   I’ve been thinking of upgrading the forum so that we have our own web domain for it, however the full upgrade would be $50 a year and that’s a bit much for me at the moment.

In non-site related news, January just passed and on Youtube you always get paid the previous month’s pay Cheque on a one month delay.  That means I get paid December pay on the 10th of this month, and January pay next month.  Although that’s great right now because December pay is always pretty good, January pay is BY FAR the worst on Youtube.  I can already see how much I generated that month and I’m not looking forward to it.  I can’t give the exact number, but I made less than $300 for an entire month’s work.  That’s half the price of rent in a cheap apartment for where I live.  December pay is nearly double that of January pay.  It’s mostly because advertisers will pay Youtube a lot of money in December to get people to buy their stuff in time for Christmas, but they will hardly pay Youtube anything in January since a lot of people don’t have much money around then.  Because they won’t pay much, cheap ads get run and Youtubers don’t make much money.  It sucks.  That being said, Patreon is still going well so that helps.

Anyway, you should be able to comment on this post.  I think you may need to sign up for the site, not sure.  You should see some useful buttons on the right side of my site if you scroll a bit.  You’ll find my twitter feed if you want to follow that, an option to follow my website by email so you get email updates on posts, you can follow my site on wordpress if you want, as well as a like button for my Facebook Fanpage.  At the very top right of the site you’ll find links to my Facebook Fanpage, Twitter, Youtube Channel, and RSS Feed.

 

Have any thoughts on what I should use this site for or any feedback on what you think of it so far?  Let me know in the comments on this post.  Thank you everybody for reading and until next time, have a nice day!
