So as discussed in a previous post, I think it's time we revisit the YouTuber rank and see how we could improve what I feel to be somewhat of a dead rank. I'd like the communities input on this, and I'd also like to discuss the 'Requirements' for receiving the YouTuber rank. Please try to keep this as on topic as possible, as I'd actually like to improve this rank and perhaps incentivize more people to start making videos for PKHonor. I know RSPS YouTuber's aren't exactly 'popular', but having some high quality content is always beneficial.
Church came up with these reqs, based on our previous ones;
If anyone has any thoughts or ways were could improve them, I'm all ears. I'd also like to visit the idea of making the YouTuber rank a community appointed rank. Within reason. And I say within reason because I know what you guys are like. Personal feelings get in the way of good decision making more often then not, and a dislike for a certain person would most likely lead to people voting no on their proposal post.1. Uploads should be semi-regular, at least 2 a month.
2. While specific lengths of video do not matter, low effort videos will not be counted.
3. Opinions expressed do not matter, but videos cannot be toxic by nature. Rage Bait, Overly Toxic PKing banter, or videos intended to harass other players could cause loss or disqualification of youtuber status.
4. Videos that are overly simplistic in nature will not count, such as only uploading guides for holiday events or only containing minimal information.
5. The administration team reserves the right to remove or grant the rank as seen fit even if these guidelines are not strictly met or broken.
6. YouTuber comes with no benefits or privileges and is simply a visual indication of effort and appreciation.
As for Incentivizing the rank, it's a little hard tbh. I've done a bit of research on a few other server's YouTube videos and for the most part, the 'super users' of each server tend to give YouTuber's small things like new items when they are released, 'mystery box' type things for mass opening videos. Now that's all well and good, but on PKhonor there's literally no point. We have an honor rank that allows you to spawn every item for testing purposes and you can do mass openings. But we also don't have a massive variety of 'mystery box' type things. So it's sort of an irrelevant video idea, I guess?
I've discussed it with Mike for literally two seconds, so obviously this isn't an official statement, rather an idea. But perhaps grading, or ranking videos based on content, time, editing, views, all that sort of stuff. Higher grade videos would receive a certain amount of donator credits for the video? Or maybe in-game currency? Again, if anyone has more ideas on how to incentivize the rank, I'm all ears.
One other idea I've toyed with and I know Billy started and stopped very quickly, back in the day.. An official PKHonor Youtube Channel. A channel that would allow anyone to submit content, being that it's to a certain standard, which can be posted to the channel. But instead of things like PK videos non-stop, I could get people to make guides on bosses, skilling guides, all that sort of stuff and compensate them for doing so. Obviously I know there's already a fair few guides out there, but I don't see any harm in making new ones with the newer items we now have in-game?
Obviously I'm just spit-balling ideas here, but I'd like some community input on how we could best implement and improve the rank. Thanks.
