i know it's still a little early, but if we wanted to send you a little something for christmas, when the time comes do we mail it to the yogscast address on the website and just add your name to it or is there a specific address you have for that?
Yup, address on the website plus my name will get to me :)
Hey! Sorry if I'm bugging you. I saw the ask about the fellow who was lost on ideas for his channel, and I have a similar question! What about someone who wants to record everything, but doesn't have the materials? I can record Minecraft at most, and the one recording I did make is pretty subpar in quality. Would you recommend pushing forward and practicing, or waiting until I have better equipment? Thanks, much! C:
If you’re not happy with it, don’t put it out. But don’t stop practicing regardless. You can still refine editing skills! Also, you say Minecraft at most - Minecraft is one of the most graphically intensive games for its appearance. Try some smaller indie games on Steam and see how you get along.
My name is Jenny, though most of you will know me as Ceryni. The Yogmeet is my responsibility and over the past two months I’ve been neglecting it, and that’s not good enough.
For a whole bunch of boring personal reasons, I’ve been pretty inactive online this year and it’s reached the point of…
Why is this blog called officialyogmeet, when we haven’t endorsed it? No offense, but official means run by us. It can give off the wrong impression, especially if the blog itself doesn’t say ‘fan run’ anywhere, or make it clear it’s not official in any way.
If you’re reading this and you’re claiming to have/do/run anything official from anywhere you should really be asking permission before claiming it as such, it can go very wrong if the official people disapprove - and sometimes can put you legally in a bad place if you’ve done daft things like selling tickets or merch.
Hey Hannah! I just saw your tweet about your video schedule for the next couple of months and that got me curious. When you play AC Rogue and Unity, will you be playing both games at the same time and upload their videos every other day, or do you plan to finish one of the games first and move onto the second one after? You have a very smooth schedule when you balance several series on your channel, and kudos for that!, but I wondered what you might do with two games of the same title.
Both at the same time, so alternative days probably - with maybe something else alongside each day for those who don’t like AC.
Horde all the way! (tbh, I'm still on the free game time you get when purchasing the game) Do you have any advice on how to be a level 90 character in Pandaria? Im just killing stuff atm for no reason... Also, whats your favourite WoW area? I definitely like the oriental Pandaria style.
I haven’t played properly since Wrath, so am just messing about - you should ask Rythian or Nilesy :)
Hey Hannah, As a fan i was just wondering what're your processes you go through in order to choose which games you want to play and which videos to post. I'm thinking of starting up a YT gaming channel and i'm stuck on ideas! Thanks :)
I see a game I like, I play it. That’s the process.
EDIT: If you’re getting stuck for ideas of games to play, then perhaps a gaming channel isn’t for you. It’s never been hard to pick games for me, I go for favourite series or genres.
Hello Hannah! I apologize if this isn't the right place to do it, but I have a suggestion for a game you might enjoy. I suggested it to Sjin for Sjindie games, but it occurs to me you might like it too. The Blackwell series by Wadjet Eye Gaming is sort of like Murdered: Soul Suspect. There are five games in the series. It's a point and click adventure with a female protagonist and her spirit guide. It's an older series, but definitely worth a look. Sorry if it's annoys and/or bothers you.
Will make a note of it, but already having difficulty squeezing in the Vanishing of Ethan Carter, so it might have to get missed out, especially if it’s older. TOO MANY GAMES, HOLY MOLY :)
Dear Hannah, I really like the story you set up for evicted! After watching today's episode though, I think you should be more careful with signed books. When Nilesy finished the book by 'Baba Yaga', hovered over it and it said 'by lomadia' it kinda took away the magic... :p
Yeah, our editor usually edits those out, but he’s a busy guy. Sadly, there’s no way in game to remove them, so people might have to just imagine a little harder ;)
Hey, Hannah! I just wondered if you were going to play The Vanishing of Ethan Carter? I just finished playing it over the weekend and thought it was pretty amazing, would love to see your playthrough of it! <3
Recorded it, likely out mid October once I can squeeze it into my schedule!
Hi Hannah, just wondering whether you had any tips for a fresher dealing with homesickness? Feeling pretty blue, I gotta be honest :(
Never really had homesickness, as I did a lot of foreign exchanges and camping at school so got used to it. Also, the freedom was kinda nice after living in a village with zero activities!
I’d suggest throwing yourself into activities and your work, if you’re having fun and distracting yourself then you should start to feel better! I still ring my parents every weekend to catch up on things, so a scheduled phone call day might also help - don’t worry, it’ll get better! :)
When it comes to mods in Minecraft, do you do any research on them beforehand or do you just wing it until you get stumped?
I’ve got a notebook that I heavily research Witchery with and plan out sessions - you can tell the sessions in which I’ve not had enough time to plan as they’re a bit more chaotic - also if Nilesy throws in a blinder of something like a coke oven, then we wing it ;)
Just a little insight on how fortunes work (incase you guys still haven't been able to solve it?) the inundated with iron one I think happens randomly, you just find iron on the ground. There's also one with coal where as you're mining coal it gives you a bunch. The saved by a stranger is supposed to work where when you're attacked an owl appears and beats some mob ass. From what I remember, these are the only tricky ones? I hope this helps just in case you're stuck :)
Yeah, none of that stuff ever happened - the fortunes changed when we saved each other from mobs, so we assumed that was it. Also, it was laggy as heck at time of recording so might genuinely be that we’re owed a few owls barrelling in to save the day.
Hi! I'm a little worried that Kim didn't get my box I sent her, I'm not sure if I did it right, or I'm just too worried. ( I sent it in the holidays) How can we tell that they got it? And I love your series! <3
Did you leave a return address so she could write back? Best way might be to tweet her and ask.
Feminism by definition is a belief in the equality of women and men, with a focus also on womens’ issues (e.g. sexual assault). Anyone who isn’t sure what it is should go listen to Emma Watson’s speech about it - she pretty much summarizes it.
Hey hannah, I just wanted to know, like what's the standard day of a youtuber? Like I'm torn between thinking it's not that hard and thinking it's brutal. So if you could provide insight, that'd be awesome. Btw, liking monster hunters.
Depends day to day and month to month. Also depends who edits your stuff - I edit everything of mine except for Evicted.
January is usually dead, meaning you can sometimes struggle to find content to cover, but you do get time to edit.
From July until January, events and games slowly ramp up until you’re sometimes juggling recording three games in one or two days, trying to release the edited videos on the same day so they get good views, and also preparing to go away to events.
Once you’re at events, they’re hard work - fun, but hard work. For example, at EGX Thursday and Friday, we did four hours of signing sessions per day, plus hourly sessions of live-streaming games on stages. You can feel unbelievably drained afterwards. If you’re abroad, like E3, then you also have the wonderful bonus of a few weeks of jetlag and sleep deprivation on your return, whilst trying to continue your usual recording and editing.
Hi! Sorry to bother you again... But since people have been asking about the PO box and i was thinking of sending some stuff later in the year too, i thought i should ask first... I have sent something to Yogtowers before, about a year and a half ago, by SingPost and it definitely got there. So that means that SingPost should still be fine, yes? I hope? Thank you!
Someone else messaged in and said that SingPost does get there okay. Obviously, I have no idea if that’s just one individual getting lucky or whether SingPost automatically goes to Royal Mail postmen.
Hey Hannah, I'm just asking, are there overseas couriers (eg. SingPost) that aren't accepted by the PO box? I wouldn't know if you did not receive it because I can't leave a return address. And there's only SingPost here in Singapore. :(
It all comes down to what courier it turns into when it gets here, most couriers aren’t accepted because Royal Mail are eejits (they don’t even accept Parceforce, a company they own).
Best suggestion would be to email us and Tom Perkins can try and help you out when everyone is back from EGX and recovered in a few days.
