Regular Community Events (inspired by Love Week)

From taking a look at the success of Love Week, we will continue to regularly support streamers interested in hosting an event for the community.

This has been a great way for us to support and highlight streamers of all sizes as they host engaging events to help their communities grow. We will be making some tweaks to the event calendar and proposal process in the future, but please checkout page link below if you are interested in seeing the calendar or what to submit an event idea of your own:

Community and Streamer Guidelines: Updates and Upholding

As we strive to nurture a positive community at THETA.tv, we have taken another look at our Community and Streamer guidelines and how we enforce them.

Here are changes made to our guidelines pages:

Community Guidelines 
- Added mention that these rules apply to EVERY user on THETA.tv
- Added section about Payment Fraud and Chargebacks

Streamer Guidelines
- Added section about Consumption of Alcohol and Substances
- Added clause stating that each report is handled on a case by case basis
- Added the following note in the harassment section

Please note that at no point is it justified to harass ANY member of the THETA.tv community. This includes staff, admins, viewers, mods, sponsors,  and / or anyone else involved in the THETA.tv community.

Please take a moment to review our Streamer and Community guidelines. We are vigilant about holding these guidelines in the community. If you wish to be a part of the community, please be mindful of these guidelines that are in place.

We've been able to amend, update, and clarify many of these guidelines thanks to the input from members of the community. Feel free to let us know if you have any feedback about the guidelines.

Report a Streamer Feature

Today we have added the feature to report a streamer directly on their channel. Click the 3 dots on the bottom right of the stream to find the Report a Streamer Button. When reporting a streamer you MUST leave a reason. Please be descriptive as possible if you are reporting a streamer.

Disciplinary action will be taken on accounts that submit false reports / spam reports / or brigade others in reporting a streamer.

Community Discussion

We really appreciate those who have been contributing to our Community Discussion so far. This has been a great way for us to take an objective look as we continue to develop the platform. Please feel free to join the discussion if you want clarification about features, have a concern you want to bring up, or even just want to bounce around some ideas to improve the community and platform.

Thanks for taking the time to read through this update. Hope you had a great Valentines Day week.

See you in the streams.

Best,
Josh (Salt)

Introducing THETA.tv

It is with great pleasure that we announce as of today, January 15th, 2020, SLIVER.tv is now officially renamed THETA.tv!

Our business has grown and evolved over the years since we first started in 360° Virtual Reality Esports in 2016, maturing into a giveaway platform for Twitch streamers to grow their brand, finally resulting in the March 15th, 2019 launch of our blockchain-powered live streaming website - SLIVER.tv, powered by the Theta Network.

Almost one year later, this name change allows us to better match our goals and closely align our brand alongside the flagship product - the Theta Network - our decentralized peer-to-peer CDN delivery infrastructure based on the blockchain. THETA.tv is the first of many video platforms to implement the Theta Network infrastructure, dramatically increasing user engagement and slashing video CDN costs by over 50%.  With the THETA.tv team working in-house alongside the Theta Network engineers, we’re afforded the opportunity to improve our technology and gauge the results in real-time. 

The Theta Network team celebrates today's THETA.tv launch

As we move into the future, THETA.tv will now exclusively feature 100% blockchain-based direct livestreams and no longer embed other websites. Furthermore, the community will now collectively decide the top creators on the platform with the brand-new Partner Royale - a season-based streamer XP leaderboard that awards the top 10% of streamers with the coveted Theta Partner title. For those looking to stream on THETA.tv, they will have to get their hands on a stream key and from there work their way up to Affiliate, Partner, and finally Partner Prestige. More info on streaming to THETA.tv can be found here.

We appreciate your understanding and hope you like our new name. The logo remains the same as SLIVER.tv with slightly updated, brighter colors. You may find our new updated brand guidelines and logo download here. The launch of THETA.tv is just the beginning of what will no doubt be a monumental 2020; thank you for continuing to be the best community on the internet!

 

 

Cheers,

The THETA team.

The SLIVER Surge Returns!

After seeing the results from our last community poll, we think it is about time to bring back the SLIVER Surge! In this new iteration of the SLIVER Surge, we will be blowing up a streamer from the SLIVER community each week. We'll have fun new challenges each week including donation incentives, follower goals, and much more! Come by to show some love to a streamer from the SLIVER streaming community, win some fresh Surge crates, and earn those tasty Surge badges.

Here's a look at past SLIVER Surges:

Want to be Surged?

We will be surging streamers who are currently a part of our SLIVER Spotlight Program. There will be a different streamer that we will Surge every week. We will be inviting streamers who have had a positive impact on the SLIVER community, and we are also open to suggestions from everyone at SLIVER about who we should Surge next! Streamers will be streaming via the Theta Network during the Surge. TFuel Partners and TFuel Affiliates are not eligible for the SLIVER Surge.

Know a streamer who would be great for the Surge?

We will be posting more details about the SLIVER Surge after running this first Surge. Keep an eye out for more details on how to get involved in the SLIVER Surge as a viewer or streamer. There are definitely quite a few exciting things to come with the SLIVER Surge. Feel free to tweet us @SLIVERtv360 about any SLIVER streamers who would be great for a SLIVER Surge!
