Since I started streaming full time, not only has my channel been growing, but my donation decks system has also been expanding. It has expanded so much in fact, that even though I have streamed almost 60 hours in the last week it currently has over 80 decks waiting to be played.
For people who like to get to the point right away:
Effective Immediately I am putting a hold on adding new decks to the queue for the normal $10/1000 bit donation amount
You are however still allowed to cheer / donate to boost existing decks in the queue to see them sooner rather than later.
If you really want to add something new to the queue during this freeze, I am going to make two exceptions:
- $50/5000bit+ donations can still add something new to the queue
- Tier 3 subs still get to add one new deck each month when they renew
The goal of this freeze is to allow me to work down the number of the decks in the queue. While I am up front with how the system works, I feel a bit bad that someone has to wait 6+ weeks at this point if they submit a deck with the base amount of money. When I get the queue back to a more desirable size I will reopen donations at the normal amount again.
Many people at this point have asked me why I don’t increase the base price for getting on the list altogether. The reason I do not want to do this is two fold:
- In general I want people of all means to be able to get a sweet idea they have on stream at some point. We have found many awesome decks from the base amount donations and I wouldn’t want to miss some of them in the future.
- Because the queue is public, decks often get funded by multiple people. One person adds a deck for the base amount, but then multiple other people bump it up towards the top sooner.
I will reopen the queue for the base amount as soon as possible. Likely when I get it back under 50~ decks, so hopefully in a few weeks at most.
At the end of the day this is kind of an absurdly wonderful problem to have. I cannot express how grateful I am for all the support the community has given my content this year. I wish I had more hours in the day to play all your awesome decks as soon as possible.
