You’re definitely not wrong, and I appreciate your viewpoint. Providing the best content you can in the best way is always a great means to get the right viewers. However, Top Clack is a bit of an oddity. Our flagship product is a livestream on Twitch. Now, if we compared the amount of people that have found us on r/mk because of our posts vs. the amount of people that actively search Twitch for mechanical keyboard content, it would be a monumentally staggering difference. Youtube might be more of an exception, but not being able to update our content on related platforms would be brutal. But then again, I’m also not at all opposed to see others do the same. For example, The Board and Keebtown also make multiple posts for their content, and it doesn’t bother me in the slightest, because I think they offer a good product that the community can benefit from.
Growing the community with information and education is always going to be something I value, period. Limiting people’s exposure to that is just not right. However, if a ton of people come to us and say they consider a once a week post/bump to be infuriating and clearly spam, we will obviously reconsider our position, but we tend to get substantially more positive comments and PMs on the fact that people were able to find us, so it’s hard for us to want to stop doing what we’re doing, I suppose.
Admittedly, part of this is maybe selfish, too. 2 years ago, I never would have imagined Top Clack to be where it is today. We have sponsors/partners, we have way more viewers, expanded content, a thriving support base, etc. It’s become somewhat of a small staple in our amazing community. And, I’ll be honest, what started as a silly side project with little effort has evolved into something that, in a couple years, might turn out to be an amazing and passionate full-time job. To be honest, I want that, I strive for it. Being able to advertise our unique product is something special to me.
