@andrew.powell Hi. I just wanted to ask something. When you talk about, twitch live streams, do you mean I should live stream? Or have other players, live stream with a button on my site that links them to twitch? Or just implement random twitch live stream of Dark Souls Players? Also, do you think it'd be a good idea to have people register? And how do I encourage people, to use the forums and IRC tabs, and/or upload their content?

When I suggested lives streams on twitch ( or any kind of streaming platform, but twitch is the most widely used platform ), I was suggesting you host your own live streams and advertise yourself and your website. But, also getting other streamers involved is a good idea too. Everyone can sort of advertise each other, and it will give members in the community something to look forward, so long as there's not too many of them, I think. 

As for having people register, I personally dislike having to register for every single service. But, I don't think it's a bad idea. When I used your site, I noticed I could log in with my Google account. I prefer that type of registration feature since I don't have to create a new account with a new password to remember lol. 

Getting people to use the forums and IRC chat is going to be tricky, I think. I may start just leaving the tab open, just to pop in and out of chat every once in a while. I think an issue with just having any chat room is that when people do show up, other people won't be on. 

With the forums, there's already FextraLife, which you're sort of competing against, in general. In fact, I highly suggest looking at FextraLife's community. They also have chat rooms and community events. So, a good start would be to figure out how to distinguish yourself from them. Regarding having people upload their content, why not simply request a link? I want to say people who take the time to record content likely post their content already. 

Hope this helps!

Holy crap lol. HACKADAY.IO is the last place I would think to find a fellow chosen one / bearer of the curse / unkindled! Do you prefer suggestions submitted on the website itself, HACKADAY, no particular preference? \[T]/

Alright. Will do! By the way, it took me a bit to find the link to the site. I think it would help if it was located under "Description" or somewhere a bit more clear. lol All my further suggestions will be on the site, now!
