  1. Do you think your "Vest Streak" from this year will eventually go down in streamer history? It was such a huge thing when it happened, no one knew when it would end, and best of all - it was completely organic and unprovoked. I know people were talking about the vest and the vest streak in streams that had nothing to do with you, so it permeated around twitch big time when it was still going on.
  2. Minecraft segment where Phil does a tour of his Minecraft world as an official goodbye
  3. Suggest food products for Phil to eat during the Halloween Marathon's DSP Tries It segment at the end of the month. I think Phil should try some sort of candy, since it's Halloween after all. Maybe he can find some gimmicky Halloween-themed candy to try during his days off, similar to the Zombie Skittles a month ago. It would be a nice change of pace from the greasy and nasty fast food he usually does.
  4. PHIL BANNED AGAIN NOOOO and big ups hollow knight
  5. 1 . ) It has been about 2 years since YouTube kicked you in the balls with the Google+ suspension and then Adsense issues that caused you to go all-in on Twitch. What do you think about your decision in hindsight? Any regrets about the changes you made on both YouTube and Twitch around that time? (Summer 2018) Do you feel you made the right move changing your archive content from the 10 minute recordings into the 1 hour recordings? Has this led you to be more focused on the gameplay and stream chat compared to before when you had to keep your eye on the timer to cut the recordings every 10 minutes? Do you think you would ever start archiving your streams as one 3.5 - 4 hour video for the first stream, and one 2 hour video for the late stream? Or do you think hour-long recordings are a sweet spot for stream archives? Do you feel like going all-in on Twitch and ditching YouTube has been a factor in the recent positivity you have seen over the past year? Especially since Twitch hasn't given you anywhere near as many behind-the-scenes issues as YouTube has. Not to mention Twitch as a platform has actual humans working there and don't rely on bots to enforce the rules, so it hasn't turned into an automated toxic cesspool like YouTube. 2 . ) Did you hear about Twitch's recent implementation of Community Challenges for channel points? https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/community-challenges?language=en_US It seems like a great new way to use channel points. I feel a good way to use the Community Challenges feature would be to have viewers use their channel points to vote for which Vest you should wear, should you hit the vest goal for that stream. You can have up to 3 challenges going at once, perfect since you have 3 vests. Just set up one challenge for each color, and whatever color vest hits the goal first, or has the most points pooled into it, will be the vest you wear if you hit the Vest Goal. This would be great for frequent viewers like myself who have hundreds of thousands of channel points laying around. It doesn't seem like Penne Point Whales could manipulate this either, since there is a maximum amount of points we can spend on a challenge. 3 . ) Have you thought about any new sub goal events? We always seem to rotate between Viewer's Choice, Retrospective, or some kind of marathon stream with 4 or 5 games. Perhaps you could ask the chat for new ideas to add to the rotation and keep the sub goal events feeling fresh. Especially since we seem to always hit the Sub Goal to do these events. Here are a couple ideas I had: A special stream that's NOT gameplay, but you do some sort of activity that you haven't done before, either on stream or even in real life. Example: Some streamers stream themselves painting. Perhaps you could play a Bob Ross video on your TV and try to follow along with him and paint on a canvas in real life. It's healthy to express yourself and be creative after all. These types of streams are actually quite popular on Twitch, so it may even expose you to a whole new audience who might stay. Promise to upgrade something relating to the stream. Such as buying a new streaming chair if you don't have that brown chair anymore, or buying a green screen, paying a professional designer to give your brand a fresh coat of paint, buying more sound-proof foam to soak up noise from your air conditioner / kids outside playing / landscapers etc., you get the idea. 4 . ) About a month ago, you changed your Pre-Stream format to cut the Plugs Segment and replace it with more in-depth conversational topics instead. How have you seen the response over the past month or so since you implemented this change? You still hit the Vest Goal every stream, so it seems like having a 10-15 minute Plugs segment wasn't necessary after all. Especially since you have a slideshow on screen that do the plugs for you. Do you have any other ideas with pre-stream you'd like to do in the future? 5 . ) Did you ever go looking for that old brown chair from Connecticut you said might be in the storage nook? I know you have been talking a lot recently about getting rid of the loveseat and getting a single-width chair, and we brought up in chat you had a regular chair back in CT you might have actually brought to WA during your move. 6 . ) With the recent surge of copy pastas in chat, do you think you will turn copy pastas into a positive thing like you did with other things that have irked you? Such as the Frog meme, lean in manual ban meme, take a sip meme, why am i toxic meme, penne meme, bottle crunch meme, etc. Those were all deemed negative at first, but you turned them into a positive, and the trolls can no longer use them to get on your nerves. Do you think you can do that with the copy pastas? Maybe start calling them Copy Penne lol 7 . ) Also not a question but a suggestion: You asked about designs for selling Covid face masks on Teespring a couple days ago. I think you should make a design that says "Why Am I Toxic? Oh wait, I'm wearing a mask, so I'm safe!" doesn't have to be an elaborate design, just text. Maybe simplify the general idea so it can fit on a face mask and still be legible from 6 feet away.
  6. @Phil I had an interesting idea we could do for this Retrospective Event: going back in time and checking out the different YouTube channel layouts you've had over the years Not only does your channel background and banner change, but the YouTube channel layout and general YouTube layout changes too. Not to mention seeing interesting statistics, like how many views and subscribers your channels had 10+ years ago. So I've put together a list of Wayback Machine archives of your DarksydePhil and DSPGaming channels with a snapshot about every 6 months so we can see the progression. I stopped the list after 2015 since not much changes after that due to YouTube's layout staying the same since. Hopefully you like this cool idea for the retrospective ---=== DarksydePhil channel ===--- December 19, 2008 https://web.archive.org/web/20081219170340/http://www.youtube.com/user/darksydephil February 14, 2009 https://web.archive.org/web/20090214211612/http://www.youtube.com/user/darksydephil August 9, 2009 https://web.archive.org/web/20090809231916/http://www.youtube.com/user/darksydephil January 7, 2010 - New channel layout https://web.archive.org/web/20100107204135/http://www.youtube.com/user/darksydephil June 25, 2010 - DarksydePhil is an Archive channel now https://web.archive.org/web/20100625004928/http://www.youtube.com/user/darksydephil ---=== DSPGaming Channel ===--- April 20th, 2010 https://web.archive.org/web/20100420010907/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming June 24, 2010 https://web.archive.org/web/20100624031647/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming January 23, 2011 https://web.archive.org/web/20110123003247/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming June 16, 2011 https://web.archive.org/web/20110616175154/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming January 1, 2012 - New channel layout https://web.archive.org/web/20120101074910/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming July 9, 2012 https://web.archive.org/web/20120709211402/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming Jan 15, 2013 https://web.archive.org/web/20130115064948/http://www.youtube.com/user/DSPGaming July 4, 2013 - New channel layout https://web.archive.org/web/20130704231310/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming January 1, 2014 https://web.archive.org/web/20140101032527/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming July 8, 2014 https://web.archive.org/web/20140708040948/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming February 12, 2015 https://web.archive.org/web/20150212232629/https://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming August 14, 2015 https://web.archive.org/web/20150814043610/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming ---=== Other Channels ===--- RedDeadDSP on July 23, 2010 https://web.archive.org/web/20100723000623/http://www.youtube.com/user/RedDeadDSP THEKINGOFHATEHD on August 9, 2009 https://web.archive.org/web/20090809232050/http://www.youtube.com/user/THEKINGOFHATEHD DSPStreetFighter on April 23, 2010 https://web.archive.org/web/20100423220705/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspstreetfighter DarksydePhilFFXIII on April 9, 2010 https://web.archive.org/web/20100409040753/http://www.youtube.com/user/DarksydePhilFFXIII If you'd like to browse your archives on your own, here are some links DarksydePhil archives https://web.archive.org/web/20081015000000*/http://www.youtube.com/user/darksydephil DSPGaming archives https://web.archive.org/web/20100801000000*/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspgaming RedDeadDSP archives https://web.archive.org/web/20100415000000*/http://www.youtube.com/user/RedDeadDSP THEKINGOFHATEHD archives https://web.archive.org/web/20090301000000*/http://www.youtube.com/user/THEKINGOFHATEHD DSPStreetFighter archives https://web.archive.org/web/20100601000000*/http://www.youtube.com/user/dspstreetfighter DarksydePhilFFXIII archives https://web.archive.org/web/20100301000000*/http://www.youtube.com/user/DarksydePhilFFXIII
  7. We need to watch the origin of what would later spark the Vest Streak Phil jokingly says he will wear the vest if we hit the tips goal, this becomes the origin of the "wearing the vest after hitting the tips goal" gimmick Phil says he will wear the cowboy hat if we double the tips goal Big tip comes in later that stream, doubling the tips goal, and Phil stays true to his word by wearing the vest and cowboy hat for the first time
