I do Livestreams of my art on occasion. Here are the basic rules.
Livestream Rules1. Be polite!
especially to the folks that are also watching the stream.
... 1a. I have no problems with swearing, but do be considerate if there are any viewers that do not like swearing
... 1b. This also goes for any kind of super controversial topics that may offend other viewers.
... 1c. I rarely get offended but still, be friendly.
2. Don't be afraid!
We're all friends here, and you'll never be struck down for sayin' anything.
... 2a. This won't apply if you're legitimately being a little s**t.
... 2b. I love you
3. It's okay to leave!
I won't be mad if you leave, as long as you give a word of warning to the rest of us.
... 3a. It's perfectly okay.
... 3b. You get busy sometimes, I know.
4. It's okay to come back!
I mean OF COURSE it's okay to come back, even if it's a few hours into the stream.
... 4a. We'll usually still be there.
... 4b. It makes me feel better knowing you liked it enough to return.
5. Don't be a little s**t!
This is pretty easy. Just being nice and agreeable is enough.
... 5a. Being a little s**t entails you to be either spamming up the chat, disrupting the chat (either with TOO MUCH Zalgo or any other kind of scripting text), or being mean to the other viewers.
... 5b. I will ban you if you get out of hand.
