I’m trying really hard to express my feelings on this in the least confrontational way.
I’m a patreon backer at the $5 level currently.
I’ve been a sub to the channel since sc2 days off and on with breaks ( I have 2 daughters. One’s 11 months old now. They take financial priority obviously).
I’ve been subscribed to the subreddit for that whole time since 8mmspikes and co created it.
Reddit is part of my daily routine. It’s accessible behind work filters. It’s a core part of content distribution on the internet today. Ask slasher or Richard Lewis. I use it to keep up to date on schedule changes and news and such.
I can’t make this site that same part of my daily routine. Twitch is blocked behind many company filters and that includes the API.
Twitter is a complete mess but looks like my only alternative at this point.
Killing the subreddit and not letting the community that created it take back control of it seems like a huge personal blow. I love the content and have happily paid sub fees for vod access because my schedule normally doeant allow me access to watch live.
I understand the reasoning for wanting control of the conversation but can we at least have the subreddit back.
People suggest creating an alternative unofficial one but how would anyone know it exists. You can’t post to the existing subreddit. A link here would almost surely be removed. A link in chat would be purged.
How do I keep up to date with channel happenings if I can’t access this site?
I’m just questioning my support at this point because of how all of this was done.
