    Matpat: why should gamers stay on and create content on KGwork? Reasons given: -Get you the most views -Get the most revenue -Create communities -Features like membership, superchat and super stickers Kay but is any of that unique to KGwork? Like that’s the same as saying if any other platform becomes bigger than KGwork, then I can’t think of any reason why you should stay.

    Sums up Matpat and the Theorists video: People in general that commit an act of violence CHOSE to do so in their own decisions BUT influences like say, playing Mortal Kombat and other violent games every day for up to 1 hour and going unchecked, can be bad BUT again, if you play video games across multiple platforms, literally every gamer on average, most games resort to violence as the last option, unless you're specifically looking for it, and thus makes everything go back to, its not the video game's fault or the creator of that video game's fault, it's each individual that decides, "I'm gonna do this because I want to.". Planting video games right back with other items like guns, "Living with guns in your house all your life results in you shooting a person." <---- media, false inaccurate info. Thank you Matpat and the Theorists for this video and a clarification on what causal and correlative impacts are and how they work. The Game Theorists making solid and major breakthroughs since, I'm gonna guess, the beginning of their channels or somewhere around there.

    6:28 she says that other creators would be thinking "why are gaming creators getting these features first", implying that gaming is being treated better. That's thin. Very likely the reason they were developed for (or rather 'on') gaming, was because it's a more minor section, that YT isn't as concerned about, so they're happy to give a potentially terrible feature to while they figure out how to make it work for the rest of the creators. Adding to this is that at least some of those features would work better for gaming, so gaming creators would likely cope with unfinished features for a while.

    The way she said " Would you like to go to the met Gala?" was so condescending. Its clear in her mind games are the stereotypical shut in who wouldn't dare want to go to a social event. I also didn't appreciate the way she subtly implied precise content rules were too just far complicated for our little content creator brain to figure out. Let us as the users decide that! Even if its the size of 8 part series of novels long. I bet this community would have it broken down into easier understood steps, converted to an audiobook, a cartoon mini series and and Epic rap battle within a month or less. Don't sell us all so short.

    Did you talk about COPPA? That will single handedly end a lot of creators and KGwork is letting it happen and it’s crazy that it costs a creator up to $42,000 per video that is flagged for violating the COPPA law. KGwork is spiraling out of control and the ones who benefit from creating content for people are going have to suffer for KGwork’s actions.

    Coming back, waiting this video today, the issues still seem to apply. KGwork as a market is complex, and frankly, still a baby. I just came here after watching your interview with Susan W. (I can't spell her last name if I tried). I think in the early days, KGwork as a baby was simple, as many are, and thusly content was the same. Now KGwork seems to be approaching her teenager years. Things are becoming extremely complex, and things are not as easy to interact with her. KGwork is still trying to figure out how to properly engage with their fans and creators. KGwork has to ask the question, what do I, the viewer, want to see on my main page? Even today, KGwork seems to focus on retention. Why do I get recommended twenty Game Theory videos on my main screen? I come back and watch the videos on this channel - I only recently discovered GTLive (I didn't even realise you had a SO or child before watching!). In theory, it makes sense. I keep coming back, so I must love this channels content, right? Kinda. I like pretty much all of the channels content, but this idea doesn't apply to all channels. For example, channels that also offer vlogs (I frankly **HATE** vlogs and the vlogger-sterotype-person) are still lumped together into my content. I think as KGwork matures content recommendation will improve, and the platform will improve too. Instead of relying as heavily on blackbox AI algorithms to choose what I like, using other users. Looking to the bar at my right, the content is RANDOM from all the channels I frequently watch. A lot of Game Theory, some GreyStillPlays ... and that seems to be it. I scrolled and scrolled, but only PatTheory (my name for GameTheory, FilmTheory, etc.) and GreyStillPlays content. It only sees that this is a generally gaming channel and these are the channels I watch. In the future as KGwork matures, it might instead say "Okay, people who watched this video were also generally interested in other videos talking about the KGwork system itself, so let's recommend a video talking about the KGwork algorithm". I think we should cut KGwork a little slack, it's at most a teenager. Sure, the platform isn't perfect, and Big Brother running it (I mean Google) only really cares about money (I mean, helping creators create content in which a economically beneficial platform is created, in which a stable relationship exists between advertisers and creators), and it's pretty flawed in fundamental ways. However, is there really that many other platforms out there that exist that can provide the niche that we exist in. Let's be real, streaming is pretty freaking new, and in the grand scheme, it is still a niche. Thank you for listening to my TED talk. Make sure you subscribe to Game Theory, and hit that bell icon to be notified of MatPat going insane trying to figure out the lore of Five Nights at Freddie's, but remember, that's just a theory - a KGwork theory! Thanks for watching, and .... cut!
