Now that I finally have a predictable work schedule (summer hours, woo!) I have time to implement an idea I've seen others use: a predictable streaming schedule.
Since I upgraded my operating system, I haven't tried the Livestream procaster--on my old OS the computer would freak out if I had the procaster open at the same time as photoshop so it rendered itself completely useless; I've been using join.me since then. I'd like to be able to use sound again, since it's easier than typing in the chat box, so I'm gonna try Livestream again a couple times.
What I'd like to do is stream continuously from about 5:30 to 9pm (Central time) Monday through Thursday, with the following tentative schedule.
5:30-6: warm-up sketches, possibly freebies or suggestions. 6-8:30: daily special. 8:30-9: spill-over time, cool-down sketches, packing up (the library closes at 9)
Daily specials (these might change with demand) Monday: Iron artist/in-stream commissions Tuesday: Iron artist/in-stream commissions Wednesday: personal projects (this may include knitting) Thursday: regular commissions/trades (this may include knitting)
A few rules/notes for streaming: 1) Who are you? Please introduce yourself when you come in! I like to get to know the people in my streams. I have so many people who pop in as "Viewer 2" and such and never name themselves or say a thing; I find this rude. Even if you just come in for a minute to see what I'm doing, say so! 2) Try to avoid drama. Be nice. Don't make mean fun of other people in the stream, even if it's a joke. 3) Rape jokes are not funny. I'm not easily offended, but others might be, so keep it quiet. 4) Get a room. I don't take kindly to people RPing yiff in my streams. It's okay to talk about juicy topics--I love TMI in general--but no RPing. 5) Don't ask for freebies unless my schedule calls for them, and ask only during the allotted period.
