What is "Off-Site?"

The Havoc has a larger footprint than I had originally intended.  Today it includes a Facebook page and a Discord server where branding is used, but I've found that I also needed to extend some coverage to my Twitch and YouTube channels.  Since these are the three entities that have integration with the site, they will be the ones I cover here.  It should be noted that copyright policy extends to all third-party sites excluding Discord.  That is, The Havoc's copyright remains valid for content posted on Facebook, Twitch, and YouTube.

Below you will find a series of tabs.  Click on each tab to learn more about that site, it's function, and it's role in the mission of The Havoc.  I've also included a complete staff list for users who may need assistance on any of these platforms.

Third-Party / Off-Site Services

Discord
Facebook
Twitch
YouTube

Classification: Multifunctional Chat Platform

Purpose: To serve as a means of open communication between the administrator and users, as well as to facilitate better ways to incorporate viewers with streams and podcasts.

Description: The Discord server was implemented as a way to better manage interaction and footprint on Twitch. The service allows simple text-relay chat as well as various voice chat channels for user-to-user or user-to-admin communication. Because of it's direct link to Twitch, it should be seen as an extension of Twitch.

Terms of Use:

  1. Discussion of politics is strictly prohibited.
  2. The maximum content maturity level is PG-13, except where historical conversation or topic exceed this rating. Content of that nature must contain spoiler tags to obscure view and include a content warning.
  3. Limited use of profanity.
  4. Discussion of illegal activities is prohibited.
  5. Respect the thoughts and opinions of others while recognizing that you also have your own right to an opinion.
  6. Reduce the use of pinging other users.
  7. Do not talk poorly of your fellow users. Issues should be brought to the attention of a staffer.

Classification: Social Media Platform

Purpose: More frequent communication, news, and history posts (including history memes).

Description: The Facebook page is designed to be the more frequent interaction point for users with the administrator. Cross-posting is a staple of Facebook, and therefore most content that is posted there is subsequently posted on the site. News about new projects and articles may also be posted there to increase traffic.

Classification: Digital Media Streaming Platform

Purpose: Live-streaming of historical subject matter and leisure subject matter.

Description: Twitch servers as a location to stream On-Air content, as well as to generate interest in a different audience. The primary userbase of the Twitch website tends to be a younger audience with an interest in gaming. The mission is to use gaming as a gateway into the historical profession while keeping subject matter entertaining, engaging, and interesting. This means that usually the channel will stream game content in addition to history content.

Terms of Use: (Constant)

  1. Discussion of politics is strictly prohibited.
  2. Be respectful to fellow chatters and users.
  3. Follow instruction/direction of channel moderators.
  4. Be mindful of the subject matter, content, and tone of the stream before commenting.

Terms of Use: (On-Air)

  1. Chat will be in a follower-only state. This is to reduce the risk of abuse or inappropriate commentary during serious subject matter.
  2. No cut-in notifications will be visible, nor will chat be visible. Cut-ins such as raids, follows, or subscribers are not on screen during history streams.
  3. Make sure your comment is respectful. Some history is touchy or sensitive, be aware of what you say before you hit enter.

Classification: Digital Media Platform

Purpose: Storage of past On-Air streams from Twitch.

Description: Since Twitch by default only saves streams in the on-demand section for up to two months, history streams are reposted to YouTube shortly after they are completed. In some cases, the streams may be removed from Twitch and posted to YouTube immediately. This is done largely due to the inability to mark individual streams as sensitive. Streams of this nature will carry on as planned, but will always be unpublished shortly after for republication on YouTube, where they can be viewed in their entirety.
