Hey there, I'm Glyciant! I'm a streamer, the Lead Moderator for /r/Twitch and developer of Purple+.
I'm currently trying to get back into streaming. It's one of the things that I used to really enjoy but never had the time for. I like to try to be as helpful as possible and help out in several communities.
I first came around on YouTube making daily videos. The channel had roughly 50 videos, before I make the move to Twitch: the best thing I ever did on the internet. One of the things I have always enjoyed is helping. The Twitch Support feed seemed like a great place to help and so I started. In February 2015, I was invited to join the @TwitchSupport Volunteer team. Here, I came across many amazing people: Staff, Admins, Global Mods and other Volunteers. Since then, I have also become a moderator of the Twitch Subreddit and TwitchDB/Purple+ (there's nothing better than approving your own profile :Kappa: ).
I'm currently working towards fundraising to travel to Tanzania in Africa. On this trip, I will be helping to build new classrooms onto schools as well as being involved in the local communities and experiencing the African culture first-hand.
On my streams, I hope to create useful tools for the Twitch community and beyond. I also might try to work on existing projects such as Purple+!
I haven't really got anything to show just yet. I developed a very small part of Purple+ on stream but in doing so broke CMD and the feature I was working on.
You're currently on one of my projects. My biggest project so far is this, Purple+. It's also definitely the one I'm most proud of.
I was also the developer behind the legacy Twoos system. That has since been shut down, but you can view the on GitHub.
I also developed the original /r/Twitch Ad Requests system before Decicus took it over. Again, that has since been shut down, but you can view the on GitHub.
I think the best part is the ending when you see your efforts have paid off. There are some points when I want to launch my computer out of the window in frustration because people aren't being awarded Twoos, but most of the time it's all good. :Kappa:
I mostly moderate smaller channels - generally the places where little moderation is actually required and it's more about being part of the community. I probably couldn't choose a best moment or memory of moderating, but it's certainly something I enjoy.
I also have experience as a Reddit moderator - being the Lead Moderator of /r/Twitch. This can be one of the most frustrating things ever at times, but all in all I absolutely love it and hope to keep supporting the community for a long time. :bleedPurple:
As said above, I moderate mostly smaller channels. This means that rather than just banning constantly, I actually get time to talk to people and have a bit of fun in streams. I think the relaxed and rather amusing environments I end up in are the best parts of it.
I remember chatting in my first ever stream and having my message acknowledged and read out - even though there were probably ~4000 viewers at the time.
I also remember once helping someone clear viewbots off their channel, and when it worked their thank you reaction was one of the best things I've ever seen on Twitch - and makes the stresses of trying to help as many people as possible all worthwhile.
I haven't watched many streams while developing this site, but it's something I really need to get back into.
That said, I would have to recommend distortednet as a great streamer and an amazing friend. His endless PUBG fails always make me laugh, which is often much needed at the time.
Also, I have supported Zcotticus' stream for a couple of years - and I would definitely recommend his content!
