The moderation team has been in discussions for the past couple weeks of how we could improve things with the streamerlist. Personally i'd rather have nothing on it if no one is doing IRL and this is something we're all looking to slowly roll out.
We started this by discouraging springyard/discord chat streams. The format doesn't even qualify as a Podcast and i feel has tainted our community for far too long now.
We are looking to replace those numbers with other IRL Streamers. Even ones who may not exactly be typical IP2 content. Supporting IRL Is something we should be focusing on. We've been carried by only a few good streamers lately and i'd like to encourage anyone who can, Support the content.
We're looking for suggestions for IRL Streamers so we'd like to ask if users could scout out some talent, perhaps some users can interact with them and see if they're warm to our type of community then we could give them a shot.
No more desktop andy's will be added from here on out. This will be a slow process so we'd appreciate if you can give us some time to roll this out and manually remove those accounts but this will also give us full control of who to feature on the network, we need to take some time to consider each one fairly.
The other network has completely lost touch with the community at this point so I see no problem in slowly rolling out these changes.
Please if anyone has suggestions on new Streamers to keep watch on please leave a link here, make a thread or message one of the mods.
There are some legacy streamers who have been part of this community for years who do go back and forth with IRL and desktop streams. We wouldn't want to remove them unless it was strictly nontent desktop streams from their end.
