Age: 18 almost 19.
Staff Position: Moderator.
Skype: Cursed_Muffin with the Enderman.
What experience do you have moderating/building for servers: I have been a moderator on 2 servers the first one I was mod for 4 months but the server closed due to a tight budget. The second server I was only mod for one month because I joined and saw the server was very bad so I quit the position. Though I have limited experience I know everyone's needs on servers and that's why I signed up for being a moderator in the first place. Also when there is problems with bans or ban appeals I take the time to listen or read what people have to say.
Why should we accept your app: I am very responsible and I need a good place to Youtube. I like to help people as well. I can also help build but I have applied for moderator. I am very mature and I respect players also I always invite my friends to join me so I could help more people to come and enjoy the brand new server. On Youtube I will also display the server address in the start or in the description. And I will show people how great the server is.
Jan 25, 2015BatmanOfChaos posted a message on Insane Hardcore Factions! - What Do You Think! Looking For Youtubers, Build Team!Well dude, the idea is not bad but the stone generator idea aint good. People can make cobble and burn them and then make stones, place them and get things. So it ain't a good idea in my opinion.Posted in: Server Recruitment

I wish to help with: I would prefer an admin position as I was an admin on a server until the owner stopped the server because he went on a vacation. Well if I would not get admin position then I would like mod or builder. I have been a builder and also a moderator on 2 more server but one was closed due to lack of funds and the other I left because the owner used to like be very harsh on everyone.
So I hope i get a chance to be an admin and I am sure I can make your server great.

Jun 12, 2013BearKind posted a message on A Guide To YouTube! [Minecraft LetsPlay's][Tips][Idea's]Posted in: Let's Plays Help
A quick Note from the Author (29-10-2013): Hey Guys Sorry this thread hasn't been updated in the last couple of months. I have been travelling. Will add some stuff now
Also as I was editing there was an error so there may be some mistakes and weird stuff throughout the post. I think i fixed most off it
Introduction:Hey everyone I am BearKind and this is my guide to YouTube. Now quickly, note that right now I do not have a YouTube Channel but I would if I could (Internet Data Limit...). But these are tips, tricks and general advice to what I think can help you achieve YouTube success. I hope it Helps! Million's of people each day are uploading videos to YouTube. In 1 Single Minute a total of 72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube. That is 103,680 hours a Day. There are over 1 billion unique users per month.So lets be honest, the odds are against most of us. But it isn't all bad news, 4 billion hours of video's are watched every month, millions of subscriptions happen each day and since 2011 YouTube has over 1 trillion views or over 140 views per person in the entire world.So there is an huge audience as well as a huge amount of competition.
1: Now Lets assume you are posting for these step Minecraft LetsPlays or any other Minecraft related content. There are 26,700 YouTube Channels that are doing Minecraft Exclusively and around 11,000 more doing it frequently! What you have to ask yourself is what makes my channel stand out against this flood of content? What can I do to set aside my channel from the rest? Try and think of new features to put into your LetsPlays, do something different! This is why originality is key. Don't try and copy anyone! But copy is a loose term. I'm not saying you shouldn't do Minecraft Letsplays just don't copy there personalities or Special Features. Special features being Jerry the slime (Captain Sparklez), BARRELS (Pewdiepie). Two things I have seen other channels copy and its horrible. Basically Be Inventive!
2: Bringing me to my second point! Be Yourself! No one wants to see a new channel and take time out of there day to watch 'SethBling 2.0'; or 'Pewds the Second'. Be inventive! Create your own characters and make your own personality become the YouTube personality that other channels will want to copy.Now lets be honest, there is no guide or book that can teach you this, just try to be confident in yourself, your own opinions and in what you are saying. But don't be a 'try hard'. Don't plan out your episodes. This is one of the reasons the Yogscast is loosing popularity. People feel everything is scripted!
2.5: Now when I say be yourself I'm not saying you can add some flare to it! I highly doubt YouTuber's like IIJERiiCHOII walks around his house talking exactly how he commentates. What I'm trying to say is add some personality and feel into it. Using Jericho as an example he is very outgoing in his videos. Etho make sure that he is very methodical about everything he does (which you can probably imagine is apart of his personality) but again with Pewdiepie, he makes in animate objects animated (remember to invent your own!)
3: Consistency is another important thing. Regular uploads and more importantly a schedule. A scheduled timetable of pre determined releases shows people you are organised and also lets people see what to expect. Pre record your videos a week or so before so you can stick to this schedule. Your audience will feel like they are watching a committed and professional YouTuber.
3.5: Consistency in what I just said is good. But another area would be in how you begin your commentaries and how you finish them. Perfect examples Yogscast and Pewdiepie (Intro: Hows it going bro's, my name is Pewdiepie's Outro, *Brofist*, Every time.
4: Just a quick one which probably should have been number 1. Make sure you are ENJOYING Posting content. YouTube can be a very tough game. You open yourself up to public scrutiny which on YouTube the are notoriously bad for (in some cases)
5: Professionalism is another key factor! The finer details of making a video is what sets the amateurs from the professionals. The finer details include things like recording in high quality, using voice editing software to get rid of the sharp s' and things like that, Intro's/Outro's, thumbnails and channel backgrounds. Get the best software and make sure the quality is high!
Professionals Have Standards:• Be Original• Be Professional• Be Your Own Audience
5.5: Thumbnails and Intro's are both important but they can be abused. Don't make them irrelevant. Try keep the Thumbnails stream line and Simple, explicitly giving a brief overview of the video and its contents. Now with intros, obviously introduce yourself but more importantly and I can't stress this keep it short sweet and relevant! For Minecraft LetsPlays don't play filthy Dubstep during the intro, play simple nice Minecrafty music, For the images perhaps use your character or a Minecraft landscape, Not a dark feel like that of the game 'Amnesia'. Short Simple and Relevant!
6: Networking is something that I believe is very very important for any sort off youtube success. People might have the best content around and only have 20 Subs, Simply because how is there deserved audience going to find them? Networking, that's how.Networking (In Short) is linking up with other YouTubers and playing with them (bigger or smaller). Post blogs and update regularly (perhaps in Minecraft forums). Maybe even play on a YouTube Minecraft server. All these things will increase your channels exposure and not only these show people that you are committed. Facebook, Twitter are just a few more things that spring to mind!
Quote from beastman3226Do mod reviews of mods on the forums. Have the mod owners advertise those videos. You will gain subscribers as well as viewers for other videos.
A Great Suggestion ^
AlsoQuote from Koumus
Hey Bear, perhaps you could add a small guide on how to add the subscribe button on Minecraft Forums?
For those who want to advertise their channels in their signatures, etc.
You just need to use the following code.
[youtubesubscribe] Youtube Username Here [/youtubesubscribe]
7: Personalize it: Use words like We and our. Remember those English class' were they taught persuasive language? (I do, Even though I'm terrible at English) and it is important to use this language. Inclusive language in particular. Also try and personalize it by telling your audience things about yourself, stories, facts or what's going on in your life.
Your Additions and Ideas!
Quote from Alzorath
---- A channel, especially when it is grown, is neither the creator's, nor the viewer's - it is an interesting interaction between the two - as the creator, you need the viewers for your content as much as they rely on you to create it. Don't ever forget that. It is not your place to lead them, to force them, or to control them, it is your place to create content that you enjoy creating, that they enjoy watching, and that is responsible and in context with your channel's goals and personality. Another note is that, no matter how open or private you are, people will learn things about you, that you didn't want them to know, but at the same time, they will generally only know a limited perspective of who you are - your public face, some private hints, but never the entirety of you - to assume otherwise, can be dangerous to the health of your channel.
Feel free to Suggest Something! (Credit will be given)
The Video Break Down [For A MineCraft LetsPlay]:
Now an introduction doesn't have to be a clip of any sort, but I would recommend being consistent. If you use a video intro or not you should always have an opening statement that stays the same. Pewdiepie, (I know I have used him as an example a lot but the stat's show that he is one of the best) he starts his videos off with 'How's It going bro's, my name is Pewdiepie'. Its not as simple as it sounds. As any of his fans may not he calls them his 'Bros'. This makes all his subscribers feel as if they are apart of something and anyone new to his videos want to be apart of something. So I would suggest trying to think of something similar. For example for my name, BearKind, I could say 'Welcome Cubs' or something along those lines.If you are going to use a video intro either make it the same simple intro through out your videos or make it relevant and video/series specific. Make sure whatever you do that it is interesting and that the audience doesn't get bored. Keep it to maximum 10 seconds.
Every video will have a start, middle and end (obviously!). The idea of any intro is to reel in your audience, interest and captivate so they continue watching your video. This is the second barrier (the first being the early intro) and once you get them here they will most likely watch the whole video.Now, at the start of each video try and outline a few goals of what you are thinking about doing through out the episode, make sure these are exiting or interesting, NOT 'today we are going to do terraforming...and that's it'. Perhaps outline something special to do with the channel as well.
By now you should have your tasks under way. Be careful when doing things. If it is redecorating a room then then cut the tedious block changes out and leave in parts that can be used for discussion for example 'I like a fence here or perhaps we should do this...' Make sure to keep it interesting and if you start to struggle with things to say you should rap up the task your doing and move on to the next one, 'we can get back to this later'. Its super important to be detailed, alert and thorough through this section as missing obvious things ,like dying or missing a dungeon whilst mining.Keep them with you by cutting out the boring bits!
When finish off the video quickly summarise what you achieved during that episode. Then pose a question to your viewers or like 'Etho' does answer some questions that your subscribers have (personal or private).These thing will spark conversation in the comments increasing your videos chance of being recommended.Then do your outro phrase (or action, *Brofist*), similar to the intro and finally finish with a closing screen leading to other videos. The videos should be the next episode and a recent upload or the first episode of another series.
Getting Partnership With Minecraft Videos!
Partnership Features! Why you want them!
There are a number of features that only partners receive which greatly improve the overall look and quality of your channels. Here are a few!
Scheduled publishing allows partners to schedule a private video to go public at a later time. The video will remain private until the specified scheduled publish time as shown below.
This allows you to plan out a week of videos if you are going away. Or simply be more organised!
To get custom thumbnails you must allow monetisation on your videos!As explained in the steps above it greatly improves the quality of your channel and makes it look much more professional. So Make sure you allow monetisation!
Merch annotations provide partners a way to promote their licensed merchandise directly in their videos. Merch annotations are only available to participants in the YouTube Partner Program. This is probably for when your channel grows big enough to warrant T-shirts. But you may have merchandise that you are trying to sell anyway as some sort of donation/competition.
To get the ability to live stream you must be monitised. As well as have at least 1,000 subscribers, is in good standing, and you've set up SMS verification for your YouTube account, you can apply for YouTube Live access from within your Account Features page. Access to YouTube Live will be granted gradually.
Hangouts on Air
These are basically Google+ hangouts being live streamed. This feature is great for Networking with other YouTubers!
Starting a channel!
So how to start a channel. Well first you need to know what your in it for. If you want Internet Fame and money only then you should quit now. But if you find enjoyment in entertaining people then youtube is a perfect outlet.The reason I say this is that YouTube is NOT easy. Countless channels begin posting videos regularly and eventually within a couple of weeks begin stopping. This is because they either get bored or that they had unrealistic expectations of there channel growth.So make sure your in it for the right reasons!What are you going to need?
-A screen capture program like fraps-Sound Editing software-A capture card for your TV-A capable computer-Video Editing software-A large internet data plan.-Good upload speeds-What can you guys think of?
A massive thanks to Alzorath for supplying some much more detailed Information than what I had above!Here it is below!!
Quote from Alzorath
Just some notes on the what you need list
-A screen capture program
---- FRAPs and DxTory are the 'standard' that most major youtubers use, some other alternatives are things such as Bandicam, Playclaw, and there are even a handful of hardware-dependent options. Generally speaking: FRAPs is the most plug'n'play friendly, DxTory is the most flexible - the rest fall between these two extremes.
-Sound Editing software
---- Audacity, without any second thought, is going to be your best option starting out. You can upgrade to other options, but for Let's Plays and most things you'll encounter on a gaming channel - audacity will always be more than strong enough.
---- A hard point people miss here is microphone - cheap microphones being 'good enough' is the exception, not the rule... expect to spend at least $45-60 on a good mic. Personally I use the Blue Snowball that I got on sale, there are better options (usually more expensive), and there are some equivalent cheaper options out there, but you'll be hard pressed to get a good audio rig for under $50 (even if you go the modmic route, you'll need headphones)-A capture card for your TV
---- Only necessary if you plan to do console gaming videos. (considering good ones will run in the $200 range, this is an expenditure that can be skipped or postponed)
-A capable computer
---- A powerful gaming computer, can be a terrible recording computer - the 2 places most computers fall short is in their processor and in their harddrives. Simply put, to build an economy recording rig, I would say look for these minimum specs:- "Multi-core processor, 2.5ghz+" (better to have a quad-core 2.5ghz, than a hexa-core 2.0ghz in this case - to give a rough example)- 8+gig ram- video card capable of running the game at a stable 50+ FPS. (I have recorded minecraft on a 5800 GT 512mb before, just fine... so yea)- 2 Internal HDDs - the most common being 2x 1TB drives. (an alternative if you're not buying a new rig - is connect an external HDD through an eSATA or USB3.0 port... USB 2.0 is too slow though)
-Video Editing software
---- Best balance of 'cost/power' is Vegas Movie Studio, which is Vegas Pro's little brother. (runs around $50 USD). There are free options (VirtualDub) and insanely powerful options (adobe suites, Vegas Pro, etc.)
.-A large internet data plan
-Good upload speeds
---- Depending on region, you may not have 'data plans' per se, but you will use a lot of bandwidth. Generally speaking, you need an upload speed of at least 0.25 mbps to make uploading even reasonable. at least 1mbps for streaming. You will definitely want to talk to your ISP about the AUP, they use, some service providers, even if they have no 'data limit', can throttle or cancel your service if you use an unreasonable amount of bandwidth per month. A basic youtube channel will usually push 50-100 GB per month in and of itself, not counting your other usage. I know currently, I use 200+ GB/month.
Much more insightful thank you Alzorath.
Thanks To Koumus for Supplying the Link to the The Free Software List and to Forbiden1 for compiling the list! Use this if your on a budget!
Make sure your First upload is as good as what any professionals is! A strong start sets the trend!Other notes: Try and have a back log of videos to upload. Make videos a week in advance at least so then if something comes up your set!
Any other Ideas let me know! (Credit will be Given)
Ultimately if you enjoy making videos you should keep going and maybe you will achieve what is one of the more difficult task on the internet!
Thanks Everyone for reading and good luck with your YouTube Endeavours!Anything you want me to add or think I should add let me know! Also let me know if I helped you out!Basically Suggestion/Feedback would be greatly appreciated!-BearKind

1: Haunted Eagle wants a YouTuber for his server Provenance! The server is primarily none PvP Semi-Vanilla but they also have a full PvP realm and PvP arena! More info http://www.minecraft...-server/
2:Quote from JohnnyReklawThe "Idiot's Server" is looking for Let's Play Commentators. We're a small server looking for around 5ish people to grow our ranks. We have weekly OPTIONAL colabs on Friday nights, and the world is fairly new. We started in August, and only have 5 players now, so land is plentiful.
I have applications here:https://docs.google..../viewformWe are in 1.7.2 and have easy access to 1.7 land in the form of a nether tunnel (and a completed nether hub!)
