@shindig: Yup... I'm finishing up a second degree and there is major burnout right now.

@n00bs7ay3r: hmm well I didn't name or link my channel except in response to one person who asked for it, so I'm sure you're referring to someone else.

@mlarrabee: @nickhead: I'm definitely going to keep making content no matter the sub/view count. :)

@fredchuckdave: Thanks for the post! I think regardless I'm just going to play whatever games I like because no matter what I'm doing this purely because I enjoy it. I'd like to let people know I'm out there for sure, but I want to do it without feeling like I'm starting a business, I think in avoiding that I'm willing to put loads of time into the channel. I'm thinking now that I have even more time that I'll start putting more work into thumbnails to keep up variety (plus it's fun to mess with that stuff), but I don't think I'll do too much clickbaiting.

@travisrex: Appreciate it! I feel like I'm consistently improving/getting more comfortable as well.

@lackluster: You screwed up by not linking your channel in this thread.

Mods have locked and / or deleted threads in the past, when they promoted a forum members you tube channel without permission.

Well the whole point was to ask about a way to do it without being annoying which I feel like would be counter productive if I just instantly plugged it.

@dudeglove: @bisonhero: I'm first and foremost doing this for me that's for sure and what you've quoted from Total Biscuit is my general thought process. I'm 100 percent playing games I want to play, I'll only be taking on new releases if they're ones that I'm dying to play as well.

@travisrex: That's a good idea. Thanks! My channel is Mild Gameplay, definitely don't feel obligated to watch or sub, but I appreciate the interest regardless

@shivermetimbers: Let me clarify, I'm doing this because I'm fully enjoying it and feel passionate about it. I'm not looking to be greedy or quickly grow a massive audience, I simply like the idea of being able to share my videos and if I'm lucky interact with a small community. This is why I'm wondering if there's a decent way to spread the word about my channel. If I don't get any more viewers or subs beyond my few friends and girlfriend that isn't going to stop me from releasing videos everyday. I definitely do not want to be misunderstood.

About a month ago I started a Lets Play channel, but haven't spent much time trying to gain audience (besides uploading daily) since I was neck deep in class assignments. Now that summer is approaching I'm very interested in gaining more of an audience, however, I do not want to be an annoying spammer begging and pestering users for views in comment sections and message boards.

I'm in no rush, but after 7 years of uni with 1.5 degrees this is the first time I've felt passionate and excited doing something. I really want to share that with people in a healthy way.

Granted I've never had the opportunity to use the proper VR headsets, but after spending sometime with No Man's Sky I have to imagine that it would translate beautifully.

(If they didn't muck up the PC release)

Edit: Turns out that plugging my headphones directly into my speaker's volume mixer fixed it. Thanks for all the help folks.

I have a company deal with Dell, so I recently(ish) got an Alienware X51 pretty decked out. However, whenever I boot games with headphones plugged in I get an irritating buzzing sound in the background. Any ideas on what it could be? It's pretty steady and headache inducing.
