I am Dasbif - gamer, community manager, moderator, streamer! <3
Context is everything!
Gamer, community manager and moderator, and a novice streamer! I don't have a game I stream, so you would call mine a variety channel. I try to support communities, by writing wiki's, supporting small streams from members of communities I belong to, and moderating Reddit/Twitch/YouTube comments to benefit these communities further. Be positive, use the internet for good, people!
I moderate the /r/CriticalRole subreddit and discord, and the Critical Scope YouTube channel. I am also a wiki contributor on /r/Twitch.
In the past or present, I have put extensive time into the following games, as an incomplete list:
Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, Civilization 2, SimTower, Halo 2, Neopets, Diablo 2, Magic: The Gathering, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, StarCraft: Brood War, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, Minecraft, League of Legends, Dungeons & Dragons (3.5, 5e), Diablo 3, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch
1) Have fun! 2) Be a better gamer. 3) Meet and collaborate with others to improve in the above two goals!
I'm currently a variety streamer, haven't settled into a main game or schedule. Twitter @Dasbif is the best place for updates on my schedule and what game I am playing next!
|Title||Game||Start Time (Your Time - )||End Time (Your Time - )|
|Jackbox Games before Critical Role!||The Jackbox Party Pack 4|
I currently manage /r/CriticalRole on Reddit, discord.gg/CriticalRole, @RCriticalRole on Twitter, @CriticalScope on Twitch as a part of Geek and Sundry's Thursday night D&D show Critical Role. :D
I am also a Wiki Contributor on the /r/Twitch subreddit
I became a community manager because I was invested in the community, and saw a place that I could fill and help out with redoing the FAQ. I've found that the tasks of managing social channels, acquiring and incorporating feedback suit me well. I have found that I am quite good at organizing community events, as well as connecting people with questions to people with answers!
The best moderation experiences are the same as the best viewer experiences - when exciting moments happen in the stream, and you interacted with each other, and get to say "Oh man, remember when ___ ?! I was there!!"
The best part of being a moderator is the simple little smile I get when a user in chat goes "thanks Dasbif!" after I helped them with an issue.
The stream must be positive. I'm not usually that interested in a chatroom full of copypasta and emote spam, and will probably refuse to participate in one where the example set by the streamer involves negativity/salt/rudeness as a core feature of the stream. Kindness, patience, respect, and empathy - swinging the hammer only when it becomes necessary, and doing so as gently as possible.

I first found Twitch because of the Day Daily during StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, and have been hooked ever since, for more than half a decade. There have been too many great moments, watching tournaments of all kinds, individual streamers of all stripes, the original Gen 1 and Gen 2 Twitch Plays Pokemon runs...
It's a constantly rotating cast of who I watch, mainly depending on what game(s) I'm currently particularly interested in watching. ;)
I watch streams big and small, from tournaments, to individual streams, to small variety streamers. My advice to a random streamer: make sure you engage with chat, and don't have half of your overlay and frequent chatbot spam with self promotion with crazy huge and loud alerts/messages for events.
