Hey guys, I'm looking to make a texture pack for myself, and was wondering if there are any good sites/programs to do it on? (Or any sites/programs at all, since NovaSkin doesn't seem to work for me)

Could also use GIMP, decent free alternative to photoshop.

Do you know how many megabytes/gigabytes it is to install?

photoshop, and paint.net are pretty good

Well, I don't want to pay for photoshop, and I've tried paint.net, but it takes too much data to install. I'll probably try it again when I have more data.

1) How is your weekend going?

2) What is your goal with your YouTube channel? Growth? Just make videos for fun? Become a professional youtuber?

3) How is your YouTube channel going? Is it meeting your expectations?

4) What are you planning to do in the future, related to points 2 and 3? Is there anything Votable can do to help?

my weekend has been great thanks for asking :)

my goal with my youtube channel is to have fun an enjoy the growth of my channel until i become a professional youtuber and then take over the world with my superior power.

my youtube channel is going okay, unfortunately its not meeting my expectations just on the fact that i was hoping to receive more feedback and advice from viewers, so that i can improve and grow as a content creator.

im planning lots of things in the future, from new series like craft and the curious season 3. to playing and recording new and exciting games. Aswell as streaming once i move into my new house.

votable has helped alot it is the best community anyone could wish to come across people are constructive in the feedback and everyone is nice to eachother. it is a great place to put your content. i highly recommend votable to any new content creators i meet.

I'm finding feedback to be a bit of an issue. I think most people, probably gamers in particular, tend to be lurkers. I have a few very interactive subs but most hang in the background.

Lately, I've been really trying to encourage interaction: asking for feedback, building ideas, etc. Hoping I can find the button that makes people want to talk...because a (positive) active discussion in video comments is a very good thing. You're building a community so it's important to get people talking. They'll be your promoters and defenders (just don't let them go too far and become an impenetrable clique)

Also: while thumbs downs make us sad pandas...there's nothing worse than a thumbs down without some sort of constructive comment. Tell me what's wrong and I'll try to fix it. Booing without telling me why is less than useless as feedback.

Can't wait for that Aussie take over (since I love ozzie accents, particularly Matt's bogan one).

Agree that feedback is key. Also have noticed that this starts with each of us - the more feedback we give to others, the more we get back. Too many folks only come here to post on their own stuff or on discussion posts, but we all need to comment more broadly.

Also another feedback tip - include your request for feedback **in the Votable post description

Boo with no regard or reading first!


Kidding! Yeah interaction is rough. I look at other channels and for every sub, 1 in 10-15 watch, for the watch, 1 in 5 comment/like-dislike. It's just harder on some smaller channels to get the buzz going in the comment section. Good on you for trying. I thew a bunch of stuff at the wall and just gave up on it. After months of questions like "Whats you favorite color?" or "What's under your bed?" or "Who's your favorite super hero?" and 2 replies, it wasn't worth my time and editing anymore. You might be different though. Stay strong and keep at it.

asterious [lead] 4 years ago

I think it's good to realize that alot of viewers will watch 2-5 minutes of content, skipping around, but my guess is that most viewers won't watch all 15 minutes of a 15 minute video.

1
Im_a_wild_one 4 years ago

totally agree with you. I also think most people will check out the vids they are interested in but not take the time to leave much feedback.

1) Weekend? Awesome! Planning to meet a long-time friend in real life for the first time next week, and I cannot say it doesn't excite me, because it really does. :)

2) My goal with YouTube? Having a small community. Just big enough that I get good feedback and ideas from my followers, but not too big that I cannot read all the comments anymore.

Two other goals I have, more specific to their categories : Finish to remove all the mycelium on my LP's mushroom island manually in a podcast series known as "Grassy Wednesdays", and also post 100 LP episodes of my main Minecraft series one day.

3) Better than my expectations. For the longest time, I was getting no subscribers, no response, no views, then out of nowhere my channel mysteriously exploded, when I was around 50 subscribers in. Took me one year to get those, but only a month to get to 100 in total, then another month to get to 200. Whatever caused this sudden growth, I am thankful for it.

Personnally, the subscriber number doesn't mean that much to me, neither does the like count. Sure, it's nice to have a lot of subs, but the number itself means nothing. Most people that subscribe click the button and never watch one of your videos again, others are bots, and 90% of the good subscribers never leave a single like or a comment. You know they are there, but they never show any sign of their existence in your videos. It's the few last, that will not like, but comment. Those are the ones that count the most. Good comments are the best gifts a YouTuber can recieve, giving him feedback, suggestions, and help him/her improve themselves. Likes don't matter, and the sub number, not that much either. What's the point of having 500 subscribers if you just have 10 views per video? And the likes... either they're your friends, family, or followers, but even there, I find that clicking a button to say "I like", isn't a good way of giving your feedback on something you like on the internet, especially that most YouTubers are ASKING for them. When you start doing that, then you lose the gift of having honest likers, because most people will do it because they like what you are doing and you asked them. That's why I think the sub count and like counts don't matter much. The things I value are views and good comments. Those are what makes a channel a success. As long as people are watching what you are doing and giving you feedback, then you succeeded at YouTube.

4) For the future? Play all my favorite games on YouTube. I have a list, and slowly am getting through, along while working on my LP's 100 episodes. Votable is already helping a lot. When I have a video I want to share/put out there, I love to be able to post it on here. Not to impose it to anyone, but just in case someone might like it, and like what I'm doing, and in that case I want to increment the chances of those people finding me. With the oversaturated Minecraft community of these days, there are so many videos of the game that there is no way to know, for a new watcher, who are the "good" and "bad" YouTubers just by looking at their video thumbnails. It's time that you need to try to tell, with how many people make Minecraft videos these days (although I admit sometimes with the thumbnails it's pretty clear to tell if someone's a good YouTuber or not in some cases). All I really want from Votable is to be able to keep posting videos here, and sharing what I do, for the potential chance of someone finding me and liking what I'm doing. That's what I've been doing so far, and that's what I'll keep doing today. :)

My weekend was pretty vanilla and normal, same as most days.
My goal with my channel? Just to have fun making videos and having people watch them. I guess my goal is to keep improving my content and eventually introduce short films.
How is my channel going? I'd say pretty alright, especially great with all the people I know around it, but I don't have any expectations, I have what I have <3
Future plans for the channel? No Man's Sky is coming out, I'll be playing that... Developing a portfolio for film school? Not sure how votable could help, but maybe a video production section with a buncha helpful links to copyright free resources.

2
asterious [lead] 4 years ago

Any more specific tips on what would be in the video production section?

2
TrickyPiston 4 years ago

Maybe links to a bunch of copyright free music channels or sites, and potentially others might be interested and could post tutorials they find? I'm not too sure, but it could be kind of nifty

3
PhDPhil 4 years ago

Make a community for it! Would be a good idea, could keep some copyright free music links stickied or featured on the page, and people could post any more that they find or any interesting tutorials etc.

3
TrickyPiston 4 years ago

I think I might. I'll have to figure out how to make one first
I think it'd help out everyone, especially with usable music.

4)My Minecraft fame is basically posting skins on Votable, (thanks for the feedback on them, I put lots of effort making them so it's nice when they get noticed)

It's cool that you don't. Its not for everyone, and kinda time consuming to to so. Regardless, how was you weekend? What's you future look like? Those could still be answered.

1) How is your weekend going?
The Weekend is over here. I had high hopes for this quarterly "Bachelor's Weekend", sadly my brother-in-law (He really is a good guy, this isn't his norm)
took control and consumed all my free time. Which caused me not to get as much done on cam and off cam as I would have liked. Still got to play lots of adults board games. So all things considered, it was good.


2) What is your goal with your YouTube channel? Growth? Just make videos for fun? Become a professional youtuber?

I would like to see better retention time. I know that for every big channel, there are thousand of smaller channels, and for each of those another thousand under them. There's most likely another couple tiers down after that, but the image is complete pretty quick there. I'm not looking to be the best (cause I watch the "Best Gamers on YouTube" according to YouTube) and that's not my style or personality. I'm having fun and want to share that fun with others. My original goal for my channel is to play the entirety of Steam Games Library (currently at 189) and some Minecraft. I laugh with my friends that I have been doing this for a couple years now, and how little growth has happened, but the subs I have watch what I make (to the reasonable ratio, you will never hit 1:1).

3) How is your YouTube channel going? Is it meeting your expectations?

I am happy with how my channel is doing. Every sub that I get makes me happier and the day a little brighter, but the real joy to me it the views counter/watch time increase. Watching that increase always makes my day happier. We all put a lot of time into making content and like to know that it gets seen. I personally know that there will be good and bad episodes, just like television. No series, show, movie,or person is perfect every time. My goal of the channel is getting met. I have played several of my Steam Games and met some awesome people in the process. I have a log way to go before I am done, and will keep churning out stuff at a constant rate. Hopefully, its all quality stuff too.


4) What are you planning to do in the future, related to points 2 and 3? Is there anything Votable can do to help?

Keep on trucking. I will probably never reach the status of Tubers like Felix, Sean, Marcus, or Jordan, but that doesn't mean I gonna get discouraged or stop. Votable has been a great source of help and friendly avatars (Cause not really faces :p) during a couple things that came up that wanted to make me quit this. I know that I kinda abandoned ship for a while due to a team thing, it put a sour taste in my mouth for Minecraft and team-ups in general. That time is past and I feel, thanks to the bastion of light and sanity (which on the internet is something rare possibly legendary), you already have helped. Thanks for that, and keep being awesome. See you in game soon!

Glad Votable could help and best of luck with your channel.

Never played an Adult Board game but...good times.

nvisble 4 years ago

Adult Board games, no not like that. Games like Arkham Horror, Super Dungeon Explore, or Settlers of Catan. Games that have a lot of complicated rules and definitely not going to have many players under 10 playing, and that the board can beat you. Their fun, but can be really tough to win.
