Due to some of the emails I’ve received, I’ve deemed it necessary to put a disclaimer up regarding emailing me. You don’t have to read this, but it’s for your benefit. I read all the emails I receive and reply to the majority of them, however I’ve stopped replying to certain kinds, so I thought I’d give some tips on emailing me.
Ways to increase your odds of getting a reply:
- Try your best to use proper spelling and grammar. If English isn’t your native language, you may want to say so in the email.
- Write your email like you would be willing to address an envelope, pay for a stamp, and mail it to me if you had to. I prefer these kinds of emails over ones that are sent from text messaging on a phone simply because the sender is bored. The more well thought-out your email is, the more likely I am to reply.
Ways to lower your odds of getting a reply:
- Ask me when the next episode is due out. My time estimations suck, plus I broadcast through Machinima.com so even I never know exactly when an episode is due out.
- Ask me a question that’s already answered in the FAQ section.
- Ask me a question that you could find out for yourself easily if you were to look it up on a search engine. I will share hard to find information regarding the Source engine, but asking me how to do something like enable cheats in Half-Life or make a hotkey is common knowledge on the internet.
Due to the volume of emails I receive, there will likely be a lag time on receiving a reply. Sometimes this is a day or two, unfortunately other times this can mean months. I work on several different projects and my main focus is creating more videos, I tend to let non-critical emails pile up and answer them in waves. However, if you have something to say that you absolutely want me to read, email is still the best option by far.
