Making videos on YouTube is a tricky business. Often the most watched gaming videos (and those most promoted by YouTube itself) contain the bare minimum amount of information or effort. Five 3 minute videos are better than one 15 minute video in YouTube's eyes as it means more ad revenue for them. Even better are ten easily-made 15 minute videos for a let's play series.

Whilst they are undoubtedly entertaining and popular, they aren't the type of videos I want to make. I'd much rather upload one 15 minute video which goes in depth on a subject and really explains it, then answer questions/respond to comments, than the alternatives above. Because of that it's very unlikely I'll ever be making videos full time. However if you're the kind of person who likes to see gaming (and other) videos that have a lot of testing, research and thought put into them you can show your support via this page.

Donating to me here will allow you to actively contribute to my entire video making process on a regular basis. This will mostly help me fund better equipment which will make videos better for you, in addition to allowing the more in depth videos to even be possible. You'll be continually aiding my efforts to improve myself and my videos and I will be eternally grateful for that.

AdBlock Absolution

Racked with guilt about using AdBlock but don't want to compromise and white list my YouTube/Twitch channels (really appreciate you guys who do that btw)? Well donating this amount via Patreon officially absolves you of any guilt from running AdBlock on my videos and you can feel happy in the knowledge that you're supporting the creation of more of them. If every single person that subscribed to me on YouTube donated this amount I could make videos full time very easily, but whilst that's still a bit of a pipe dream, giving this amount also puts me one step closer. You'll have done your bit and gone that extra step. Thank you so much! This also gives you access to my Patreon page where I'll post a variety of updates every so often and is a place you can interact with me on a more personal level.

Mini Q&A

Every month you get to ask me any 5 questions and I'll guarantee to answer them. If I can't answer a question you're free to ask another until the 5 question limit has been satisfied.

Or forgo this reward and put the $5 towards a larger one the following month (from this point on donations will accumulate and you can choose when to claim the reward that you want - more info at the bottom of this page).

Play Your GTA Track On Stream

Every month I'll create a playlist of races which will include one that you submit to me and I'll play through that playlist on one of my Twitch streams. If you're online at the time you can join in too! I'll also do my best to guarantee you a place in a subscriber lobby at least once a month.

Or forgo this reward and put the $10 towards a larger one the following month.

Personalised Commentary Over Your GTA Track

Submit to me one of your tracks on GTA Online and I'll make a 10-15 minute live commentary video about it. I'll try it out, give you my thoughts as I play it, and suggest any areas for improvement. I'll then send you this video for your own personal viewing. This video will be made exclusively for you and the only way to get one of these videos is here.

Or forgo this reward and put the $20 towards a larger one the following month.

Personalised Commentary Over Your Race(s)

Submit to me a video of a race you've participated in and I'll make a 15-25 minute live commentary video about it. I'll play the video you send me and talk over it as I watch, giving feedback on what I think you did well, what I might have done differently, and ways in which you could improve. I'll replay sections I think need highlighting and generally try to help you become a better racer by analysing what you're doing currently. I'll then send you this video for you own personal viewing. This video will be made exclusively for you and the only way to get one of these videos is here.

  • The race can be on GTA or any other racing game you play.
  • The maximum length of the video you send should be 15 minutes.
  • If you have three 5 minute races that's fine too, in addition to any combination of videos up to 15 minutes total time.
  • Recorded with a potato or using the PS4 share button, however you get your gameplay footage is fine.
  • Once you have the races you want me to analyse, upload them to YouTube, send me the links, and I'll take it from there.
  • The best strategy is likely to send me a race you did well in or you feel you performed your best, but didn't win or had some issues. Then I can help your best become ever better, rather than just catching you on an off day and telling you things you already know.


About Cumulative DonationsJust to be clear - you don't need to donate $30 every month to receive this reward. If you do then you'll get a video every month but I want it to be as accessible as possible too, meaning that if you desire you can not claim previous rewards to shoot for something higher. For example, if you choose to donate $10 every month, instead of getting me to play your track on stream every month for 3 months, you can forgo that reward and receive this reward after 3 months of donations. You've donated $30 in total so you should be eligible to have this reward in my eyes. As another example, donate $5 every month, don't ask me 5 questions each time, and every 2 months you can claim the $10 reward, every 4 months you can claim the $20 reward, or every 6 months you can claim the $30 reward. Or just drop $30 in one month and nothing afterwards if you're the instant gratification type. Whatever way you want to do it I'm happy with.

The cost of the rewards have been set as they are to ensure I'm not inundated with too many requests and to reflect the amount of time each reward will take me. I'd love to do all of the above for everyone for free, but the amount of time any one person has just doesn't allow it. The free content I post to YouTube will continue to be my main focus and will in no way be affected by this. If I feel my regular videos are suffering as a result of this I'll either add a limit to them or just remove them altogether. These should not be seen as me providing a service - I'm not selling anything here. These are simply bonuses that I feel you should be entitled to if you're kind enough to go that extra mile and support me, and if I can provide some help to improve your racing or track making along the way then even better. If you have any ideas for new rewards that you'd like to see you're welcome to let me know :)

Finally, thank you so much for even reading this far. If I ever make one of these videos for you (or the track video) then you will have donated a not insignificant amount of money to me and for that I am eternally grateful. Not because of the monetary value, but because it means you think my content is worth it and that I'm doing a good job. Be sure to let me know the moment I'm not! Thanks again for the support - whether it's $1, $100, or just commenting/liking/sharing my videos, I really do appreciate all of it.

If you have any "Youtube Video Series" Ideas that you want me to create weekly, Feel free to do so. Only if appropriate with my existing content, or perhaps even brand new ideas that you think i'm "capable" of doing. Oh and top of all that, i shall give you a "T-Shirt" from my Merchandise.
Goals
$1 of $5,000 per month
This has always been my re-investment Goal for such a long time. In order to make the content i want to make for you guys, i would require these three essentials to get the potential out of me. OH, this is just the total goal! Not Monthly! Once this total is achieved, that's all i'll be requiring. Anything further will just be used as re-investment for other small equipment to help improve my content for Youtube!
