  1. I had a thought on this. I don't know if it's a viable possibility, but I'll begin looking into it when I have some time. That idea is to give EMB email addresses to anyone that wants to use it to create a YouTube account for the chat. The parts that I need to look into though, is if there's a limit on how many email addresses that I can create and how much server space those email accounts would take up. Assuming that there's not a small limit on the number of accounts (which I don't think there is), I'd need to make the amount of storage space for each, to be fairly small. We don't want a thousand email accounts to fill up the server storage. So that's just a thought that I had, but I don't know if it's a viable one. When I have a little free time, I'll start looking into it and see if it's doable.
  2. Absolutely, I was thinking the same thing. He took a man who'd never even seen an American Football game before, let alone having played in one at any level (not even a pickup game of touch ball at the park), and in the span of 3 or 4 years, turned him into a starting left tackle. That's astounding. I mean, really astounding.
  3. As I suspected, there isn't enough data to give full reports. But as the weeks go by, those reports will start to fill out. Open an 'incognito' browser and log in that way. Or, use a different browser that you don't normally use.
  4. When I get a chance I'll get those numbers. I wanted to be there for it but had a bit of a family emergency and was in the hospital most of Saturday and almost all of Sunday. My mother had what's called an "TIA" or transient ischemic attack, often referred to as a 'ministroke', even thought it's not really a stroke. Everything's ok now, since a TIA is just a 'momentary' sort of event. I'm about to head back to the hospital in a few minutes, but when I get back home later tonight, I'll look at the stats and post them.
  5. If anyone tries out the live chat on our YouTube Channel, let me know how it goes. I've been awake for about 36 hours and need to get a couple of hours of sleep and can't even keep my eyes open to watch any of the game.
  6. It's been an idea that I've had ever since I created the channel last year, but someone else brought it up in the blog a couple of days ago and that prompted me to think more about how we could do it without actually doing a livestream, and the video premiere method was what I came up with. The post below is from last June: I forget who it was in the blog that brought up live chat, now.
  7. Ok, I uploaded a 30 minute video (same as the first one). It'll go live in about 15 minutes (8 PM Eastern). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylFIYEPQPV8
  8. lol Only to make that video, which is a 2 minute clip, stretched out to 1 hour. I did it that way (incognito), because it's on YouTube. No need to post my account in a video that everyone and their criminal brother can see lol.
  9. Yeah, it used to be a lot easier. But I want NBC Sports Philadelphia, too... though, they've basically cancelled all Eagles related shows other than Pre and Postgame live. Quickslants used to be great, but they stopped that back at the beginning of the pandemic. That whole process would be a lot easier, though, if I could get them to reliably recognize the Philly IP from Windscribe. But they likely have a way of scrambling it so it doesn't work right. Doesn't matter though, I can bounce around the country and find a way to watch what I want, if need be. lol
  10. I have to run up to the store, but when I get back, I'll upload another 'test' video so people can try it out again.
  11. For anyone that wants to 'live chat' during the game, there will be a generic sort of video (a blurred out video of 'something') running on the boards YouTube channel and live chat will (should), be enabled on it. We did a 1 hour 'test run' a couple of days ago and it seemed to work smoothly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XofeJ4VL6uY I have a 4 hour and 48 minute video scheduled to 'premiere' a half hour before the game. Here's the link for this week's chat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7uPz-At1fk If you go to the video during the game, try to let it run for a good amount of time if you can. The higher the 'watched time' for the video/chat, the better it is for the boards channel. We need 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watched hours to be able to apply for monetization. Monetization is one of our goals, if we can get to the point where we can apply for it and if YouTube approves the application, it could potentially help pay the boards bills, when they come due. So go and subscribe to the channel (even if you don't turn on notifications, it'll help a lot). If you click on any of our videos, also click the like button and leave a comment... it can be anything, like "Dallas Sucks!" but anything at all should be helpful.
  12. Of course, we aren't making anything yet. But this is a site that shows what a channel 'should' be making according to that channel's current subscriber level and views. This is for the boards channel: https://socialblade.com/youtube/channel/UCgddcxcinminXP9MFcEaDzg
  13. They don't get paid for likes and subscriptions, but it helps the channel with YouTube's algorithm. The more likes, the more subscriptions, the more comments and high watch time percentages, all factor in to whether or not YouTube will recommend a channel's videos to other YouTube viewers. The higher all of those factors are, the more people they recommend you to. So in the long run, all of that can translate into more revenue in a number of ways. One way is by being able to promote the EMB, and since we have ads for guests, it could mean more revenue that way. Another way would be if we had a donation page, we could promote that and get revenue that way. Or if the channel is monetized, we'd make revenue that way. So likes, subscriptions, comments and all that, do help overall. Maybe free access to TATE?
