An experimental form of maxxing I’ve developed: parasocialmaxxing

So this is what I like to call parasocialmaxxing: a way to socially/economically advance through being a twitch streamer, gathering fans and getting money off them. It can work for cels who are sub5 because you don’t have to use a facecam to stream.



I have a few ideas on the twitch meta/how to get big as a streamer. I think I’ve figured a lot of stuff out in terms of:

- crafting the right persona
- finding the right games for your style of content
- getting people to give you donations

There’s a huge power vacuum in terms of the streaming space right now. Wanna know why? the big minecraft streamers (who hugely took advantage of parasocial relationships a few years ago, and gained millions of followers/dollars) don’t stream much at all anymore.

So what does this mean?
They’re replaceable.


If incels play their cards right they can be the next big thing. here’s how;

- first things first you actually have to know how to play a game. It can be any game I guess you just can’t be shit at literally every game and expect anyone to like watching you lol.

- know your audience. For the sake of simplicity, let’s assume you become a minecraft streamer. The minecraft community in particular has so much parasocialism in it it’s crazy lol. People are willing to throw money at any “comfort streamer” if they like them enough.

So how do you get them to like you?

- know your assets/attributes. What archetype do you best fit into, appearance/personality wise? It doesn’t really matter much what personality you actually have cause you can fake it (everyone on twitch does lol), but because lookism is very much real your looks will matter quite a bit, unfortunately. That’s not to say you *have* to be ‘conventionally good looking’, but you have to look distinct. Memorable. This advice does not apply if you choose not to stream with a facecam (but you will have to have a pleasant voice at least.)


Picking the right channel name and visual aesthetic is probably *the* most important first step. Especially the name, it’s crucial.

• Here is something that the majority of large content creators have in common: they go by usernames which are typically short, easy to pronounce, easy to remember, and don’t contain lots of numbers.

You don’t have to have a very fancy channel aesthetic to appeal to people. In fact, it’s likely better if you don’t.

It’s a bit hard to explain but basically when it comes to the ‘brand design’ of your channel you emulate something like Apple or Mcdonalds, meaning they should be pretty simple designs and not too many colours or small details (minimalist). This ties into the aspect of memorability which is important to all aspects of a channels “vibe” more or less.

Good ideas of what you can do for your profile picture/channel header:

- A picture of yourself (if you’re comfortable having your face out there.) It should be either a good picture (as in good image quality and generally flattering) or a comedically “bad” one.

- a minimalist style logo with distinct colour scheme

- a drawing of your avatar/character to represent your streamer persona: either an actually good one (if you can draw or get a commission) or a purposefully shitty doodle one.
 
That sound nuts. Regardless, best of luck to you.

oh I’m not gonna be doing it (I don’t have any of the qualities to be successful at this lol) but I’m sharing my “wisdom” if you can call it that to others

tldr so i used AI -

"Parasocialmaxxing" is a strategy I've coined for advancing socially and economically by becoming a Twitch streamer, even for individuals deemed less attractive. By mastering the Twitch meta, including crafting the right persona and knowing your audience, there's an opportunity for incels to thrive. Knowing your assets and attributes, along with choosing a catchy channel name and minimalist visual aesthetic, are crucial steps in building a successful streaming presence.

Sounds like a waste of time and effort.

anyways. Here’s the benefits of this I think of you can make it work: female streamers have plenty of simps that give them money so they can live of basically no real work— but people don’t realise that men can do this too. Again look at MCYT they coast off the parasocial relationships they developed with their (weird and rabid) female fanbase. If you don’t give a fuck where your money comes from this could be you.
 
This is retarded. People grind for years making content/streaming while getting no views. You don’t just start streaming and blow up easy.
 
You need to have a particular personality type (obnoxious male attention whore) to do this

A former user here with that personality became a streamer and is now a micro celebrity with fans who follow all his shit but his life is not enviable in any way

Yeah I know but it’s not impossible to do it in like 6 months-1 year. I’ve seen some streamers blow up in like 3-4 months

oh lol really, who?

especially if you know what to act like in terms of the meta of what streamer fans are into. It’s cringe for sure but for reasearch if you’re willing to look at like fanart and shit on stan accounts they basically tell you what they want. You just have to get over yourself a bit, embrace the cringe, and emulate what they’re looking for. I do think it can be worth it as long as you don’t care too much what people think of you at first lmao

Thought on Johnny Somali, the infamous IRL streamer who shook Japan out of their docile, subservient NPC slumber and turned the whole world against him in the process? I made a thread about him 2 weeks ago detailing my thoughts on why I think he's a vastly better entertainer than 99% of content creators, especially the weebtards and soy commentaryfags like moistcritikal who get so riled up and offended over his zero inhib shenanigans:
You can skip to literally any point in the VOD and he always has something amusing to say. I think the guy is hilarious. Truecel tier looks too.

I wouldn’t recommend doing shit that can get you in trouble with the law lol (just not worth it tbh). And re: “annoying male attention whore personality”— you don’t actually have to be that way. You can fake it.
 
What you're describing is obviously impossible to perform if you're autistic or have another non NT mental condition like 90% of this forum.

Most costly form of attention harvesting by a streamer. I think Amos Yee of Singapore exceeds even Somali.

idk if I agree with that. Some of the twitch audience (often other autists) actually like when “their streamer” has autism lol like it’s relatable. Can be exploited I guess.

And by exploited I mean for profit. Bitches love relatability factor lmaooo
 
Ideally no one should remember him or check out his content ever
You’re either referring to Bummer or Eggy. Probably the former :waitwhat: @Zettabhai

The Johnny Somali Japan saga was historic content ded srs. Nothing he did was explicitly illegal, but yeah, the public menace method is very risky and not a good idea at all if you want to approach e-celeb/statusmaxxing in any beneficial or profitable way. I would not recommend it because most of the time, it isn’t successful in 2024, as the YouTube prank meta is frowned upon by normalfags thanks to soyboy commentary channels and holier-than-thou cancel culture snowflakes holding the online cultural zeitgeist with an iron grip.

Abrasive content creators like Johnny Somali who thrive on getting attention for doing causing chaos in the external world to piss normies off just end up being free content cows for channels like moistcritikal and Atozy. Like, this guy is a notorious YouTube prankster who normies are literally only aware exist solely by word of mouth from commentary channels incessantly covering him for their own monetary gain under the guise of concerned virtue signaling, and they get far, far, far more views than he does:

The fact that I’ve never even heard of who that is should tell you how relevant he probably is lol

No he's referring to captain crack sparrow
 
Oversatured market + only works if you are NT

Ohhh, Sparrow’s Song. I’m out of the loop with that bizarre and absolutely degenerate offshoot of this community (if you could even call it that?), and it’s probably better if I keep it that way.

see what I said above. You can exploit the “quirkiness” of autism if you have the right audience imo (but I do kinda agree it’s a saturated market. Still think it’s be fun to experiment with though)
 
Say jestermaxxing without saying jestermaxxing
well yeah lol. That’s definitely a part of it. Could also call it “heartthrob-maxxing.” Is it cringe? For sure. Extremely so. But will it get you money and maybe ascension opportunities if you’re at least somewhat successful? Yes, I’d think so.
