IMHO the chat was a mixed bag. Watching Ross talking about stuff was cool, but the people's questions were very disappointing. A lot of them were already asked and answered before, and many more are obvious to anyone who watched Ross's videos. (And if you didn't, why attending the chat?).


Once again, kudos to @Jeb_CC for the work on FAQ. I think next time it will be reasonable to just say "sorry, that's already answered in the FAQ" when someone asks "Ross Y U moved to Poland" for the bazillionth time.

For questions - you could make Q&A with a video, just on a semi regular basis. Or you could make it a live video chat but have some questions before the live video (so you have something already to talk about and that would already limit the search in chat for questions) chat and than have some people help you by joining in live on like a conference call and talk with you.


For video chat - my guess on improving would be to find a way to get the people involved more. Too bad you said in a video once that MMOs don't interest you that much and also not a big fan of "Let's play". Would be great IMHO if you play a MP game with fans and also have some of the closest fans and people you know on a voice chat as well.

For getting through the fan questions during a stream, I would suggest having a person copy and paste questions directed at you from twitch into a google doc or something similar to filter the questions from the viewer conversations. They could also filter any repeat QA questions.

There's a reason they are called Frequently Asked Questions. Cause it's what people wanna know, lol.

P.S. on posting or not posting videos on youtube - If it were like every few days, than yeah, people could get annoyed and spammed, but if its like once a month than that shouldn't be a problem. Hey, its an extra, at least some people who don't pay attention to the website would know whats going on by seeing new video under my subscriptions.

Hello!, my first message in the forum.

First of all: Thanks Ross!!!, the quality of your videos is outstanding.


The video was really entertaining for me, i watched the whole.

Regards to the format of the chat, i found your suggestion in the video (one chat only for worth questions, and another for talking) a very good idea, altought i dont believe any Streaming Platform that meets the requeriments for the videochat allows that.


p.s.: Sorry my bad, rigid english. I haven´t written more than a sentence in years.

Hey Ross, I welcome the news on new Freeman's mind, but you shouldn't burn out yourself again. I mean, if anything, it's us who owe you. You gave us a lot of laughter, and I'm not kidding when I say that some of your videos (and not talking about FM only) kept me going on days I probably would have just given up. You had our backs long before we had yours man. Whatever you choose to create, I'm sure it'll be as awesome as anything else you've made so far.


And thanks for the sum up Jeb.
