It seems I have become a large enough channel for YouTube to offer me “channel Memberships”!
Either that, or they’ve started rolling them out to everyone….
It means I have another way for people to support the channel if they so wish. By going to My channel you now have the option to “JOIN” !
By doing so you get access to member only posts, r name listed in my ‘Thank you’ credits, and get a special colour and icon when you comment on my videos and livestreams. No more will your comment be lost in the herd! Stand out from the crowd! Etc…..
There are also a couple of special emoji type icons you can use in chat. I hope to add more as time goes by, but I’m not very artistic!
So, pop over to Gross Models and see about signing up from as little as 99p a month!
As lockdown has eased a bit and we start to return to work, I have eased up on the live-streams.
My new regular pattern is eModels on Monday, “Building stuff” on Wednesday, An Evening with on Thursday, and Warhamster every 2 weeks on Sunday (alternating with Ted)
On the Wednesday stream I will be continuing the Wooden Wednesday theme, but also doing Lego and Nano block kits. This week is the turn of Lego, and I have a little 3 in 1 dinosaur kit kindly donated by QuanoMan.
Next week is back to wood, then some more of the Nano dog the week after.
As ever, you can find my upcoming streams on the YouTube page, YouTube.com/GrossModels , but tonight’s direct link is: Here
I’ve been spending a lot of time playing around with setting and things for the many, many live-streams I’ve been doing recently, and now it’s almost time for me to go back to work I think I have things setup just about right!
As you may know I use a Streamdeck to Control most of my streams. I can switch inputs, scenes, play files, start and stop streaming, almost everything. But it all takes setting up and pressing buttons to make it happen.
Except now it doesn’t. I have been able to work several of the buttons into “multi use” buttons, so one press starts a sequence of events in action. Before I had one to start the stream, one to change to a start video, several to send messages to the chat, more to switch to a stream view, etc. now I have a single button that should, hopefully do it all. One press to go from being off air all the way to starting the “proper” stream with me on screen starting the show.
23 separate actions from one press. Should make the pre-show a little less stressful. I’ll find out on Wednesday when I try it all out! Wish me luck!
