Doing some branding and Housekeeping


#1

Phase one stuff. I will update this with the pertinent information!


#2

Oooooooh I can’t wait to see what it is! Any Strats stuff is usually good stuff! :smiley:


#3

In order to separate the various aspects of my life, I had to go and split somethings out from my personal accounts. (The ones I use for work and stuff…)

I’ll also be moving the Hollydae Project over to this when I get the chance.


#4

Critiques are good too. Just don’t be a jerk.


#5

The final bit was to replace the stolen (GASP) test pattern with something a bit more mine.

So I hope I’m up to standard with the rest of the streaming crowd, in the branding and whatnot. (Yeah it’s not as slick as it could be… (builders house and all))


#6

@Vocino: Do we have a vector team Strats asset for stuff like this?


#7

The png should be pretty far above what you’d need for a 1080p graphic like that but I can give you an eps or whatever you’d prefer.


#8

I grabbed the .png from the other thread, It’s possible I grabbed the wrong file. I’ll double check. Wonder if we could do a twitch team asset .zip with instructions right inside.


#9

@tommy2118 is working on a welcome pack like that to give to new team members.


#10

May want to see about getting a text friendly link, i don’t recall exactly how to do it, I think it had something to do with user settings.

Kinda like that.

I think they’ve changed the rules: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2657968?hl=en

Ahh, unfortunate. Guess we need more active people on the forums, get people those 500 subs LoL


#13

Yeah:

Eligibility requirements

To get a custom URL for your channel, your account needs to be in good standing and meet a few other requirements:

500 or more subscribers
Channels is at least 30 days old
Channel has uploaded a photo for the channel icon
Channel has uploaded channel art
You can also qualify for a custom URL by linking and verifying your official webpage with your channel or +Page.


#14

Makes me wonder, if you have an account and link to strats does this satisfy the requirement?


#15

I have a domain… I’m just not sure I want to go through the hassle of making it do something and look pretty today… :confused:


#16

You have to verify it with a meta tag, DNS entry, etc.

That’s not necessary. Just look at http://vocino.com heh


#17

which is fairly simple… sigh I wish i had a good WP theme I liked enough to use.


#18

But I would know…


#19

It’s not about knowing. To create a destination is a big ask. To expect others to travel there is an even bigger one. Just make a simple landing page and link to where your content is. Your goal is for people to follow you on those services anyway.


#20

True. I need to figure out where I am going to live. Ultimately redirecting traffic back here is a goal…
