yikes, yeah the thing with those ads is - if you want to help out - click an ad once per video. If everyone watching does that it'll help the person making the videos (we could all help eachother!)

But if you click it often, as you say you did - it'll be considered fraud. There's no returning from that sadly..


In other news, after a week of not playing dead space 2 I'm making more episodes at the moment. I'd also still really like your thoughts on Skyrim Shorts.

Skyrim Shorts
Short clips of random entertaining/silly things in Skyrim, which as a whole would form a series. Clips varying between 20 seconds to a minute. Would you guys be interested in seeing that? I'll try and get some examples up later today.

Re: Let's Play General Discussion Thread

I like shorts. They're comfy and easy to wear.

But really, if you're making clips that very between 20 seconds and a minute you should just cut a bunch of them together into a ~5m video with funny title cards.

YouTube is very strict about this stuff. I think there's a time period where you can contact them (or Google/AdSense, not sure) and basically inform them what has happened, but I'm not sure how long of a window that is.

The only way of getting ads again after something like this is to make a new AdSense. Don't know how that works if you've been banned once already.

TottEDIT: Also, Future, how about a montages? Divided into different styles, like a silly stuff montage and a cool enemies montage.

That sucks. Nick shouldn't be punished just because I was stupid about it.

Re: Let's Play General Discussion Thread

I'd imagine there are some security measures in place. I could easily sabotage some dude I didn't like simply by spam clicking ads on his page.

Re: Let's Play General Discussion Thread

1. I talked to Nick. He got it all sorted out and all is forgiven. I worry too much.

2. I thought of a sweet idea last night while trying to fall asleep. It's based on what James, Eien, Bill, and I did for the Sprung LP. While LPing Mario Kart with my sister a while back, we were not happy with having to share my little stick-on-a-stand microphone in a cramped space. Not only that, but editing our voices really sucked since they were both on the same audio track. This latest Sprung LP got me to thinkin' (rare, I know! ): What if I had my sister bring up her laptop, got onto Skype or Google+, plugged the stick in her laptop, and had it all to herself while I used my own headset and we communicated over Skype? Sounds a little funny, but I think it's definitely something worth trying.

Re: Let's Play General Discussion Thread

Actually, since she's going to have to sit close enough to see the game your mic will DEFINITELY pick her up and the mic she's using will pick you up.

That would be a mess.

Blizz, the only way that would work is if you two were in separate rooms.

You could share the screen between each other via Skype, but then lag would become an issue.

Re: Let's Play General Discussion Thread

Mass Effect 3 demo came out earlier tonight, of course I recorded me playing it and here's the first part!

(Yes I'm going to spotlight this here - it's only a very short lets play and I need attention)




The one thing I dislike about doing lets plays is the time it takes to upload a bloody video to youtube. For me, 15 minutes of 720p videos equals 700mb. Which takes around an hour and half to upload. I wish I could upload all the parts in a shorter time, in total it'll be 6 hours of uploading..

Anyway enjoy! Be sure to check out part 2 tomorrow. 8)

This.

Uploading a video usually takes under 20 minutes here at school with a wired connection.

At home, with a wireless connection...at least with the old modem we've had since 2005...about 3 hours. I haven't tried it yet with the new modem (which was bought last December), but I'll definitely test it when I get home for Spring Break in March.

omg you guys thats horrible of you to say


I have a high end gaming pc - but the internet connection could do updating. For years now I've had a 20mb connection, I get download speeds around 2mb/s but the upload barely reaches 80kb/s

Re: Let's Play General Discussion Thread

Well you've got me beat there, Future. I max out at 50-60KB/s upload.

Which is why I start the uploads right before going to bed.

Re: Let's Play General Discussion Thread

I wish I could set it up so my computer could do one render after another while I sleep instead of just one.
