Hey nerdz and welcome to Season 2 Episode 28 of the Epic Questions Podcast. Your Blizzard Entertainment Question and Answer Podcast. The episode you are about to hear is called “Being a Safe Content Creator [BLIZZ]” and was recorded on May 11th, 2017.

Overview of the Show:

Ever listen to a podcast and wish they talked about what YOU wanted to hear about? Well now is your chance! Each and every week I’m going to sit down and do just that. With Season Two of the Epic Questions podcast, I take YOUR Blizzard Entertainment game questions and bring a different perspective to each and every one of them. Here at the Epic Questions Podcast, no question goes unanswered, and no listener goes unheard.

Asking Questions just got a little more Epic.

What’s Different With Season Two:

Season 2 of Epic Questions is going to be a little more discussion focused. Previously on the show, we answered every questions we received. As much as we love questions, it became hard answering the same questions we had just answered a few weeks prior, or just last week. So you control the show, and how often it is produced. A new Episode will be recorded as soon as we receive 5-10 solid questions to answer on the show. Questions will be reviewed by the hosts then hand selected for the next Episode.

Previously the show was only answered World of Warcraft based questions. But this time around, we are going to deep dive into the whole Blizzard Universe. But have no fear, the episodes will be split into two different categories: World of Warcraft Only, & Blizzard Entertainment. This will make it so you folks that only want to hear Warcraft discussion don’t have to skip through episodes to find the information you want to hear.

From time to time, the show will invite special guests to help with some or all questions on different topics, so if you have anyone you want to hear from, let us know!


Epic Answers:

Welcome to the Epic Answers portion of the show! This is the part of the show where I take questions submitted by members of the Blizzard Entertainment Community and try to give different perspectives to each and every one of them.

This week Epic talks about internet safety and how to keep yourself safe as a content creator.

Here are some important quotes that will help you if you found this page, but haven’t listened to the show:

  • step one of protecting yourself is not exposing your personal information to the whole internet. Go by an alias, or an abbreviated name like John S. or Jay Smith. Or something cool like E.I. or something.”
  • have email addresses for social media and content creation that aren’t linked to the real me. Use a business email, even a free email on Gmail that doesn’t expose your personal information to the world.”
  • Keep your websites safe by paying for privacy protection. Your full name, home address, phone number and email are available for everyone to see. If you need help, move to Siteground.com web hosting and get protected today! And use this link to support the show!
  • “Use a different name on skype than you use for everything else. And don’t share it with just anyone.”
  • protect yourself from that by using a VPN. A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a method used to add security and privacy to private and public networks. This will help keep you safe.”
  • get a post office box that’s not tied to your address.”
  • For Twitch streamers, add your personal information to your banned chat filter.”
  • Twitch streamers, use a chat bot like Nightbot and filter out certain domains and links to prevent people from posting your information on Imgur and them linking it in your channel.”
  • Additional steps that I have taken are having two phone numbers. I have my private number and my business number.”
  • At events, “ don’t post pictures, or live stream, or video tap yourself checking into the hotel, or going into your hotel room.”
  • don’t invite random new friends back to your room for drinks or to hang out. You never know what the other person’s motive is. Male or female, we have to protect ourselves.”
  • At this point, you should know the “don’t take a drink from anyone unless if you saw it poured” rule. But you also need to be aware of WHO is around you at all times. If you start seeing the same person lingering around, or always watching you, or walking past, make a mental note.”
  • “Do a room scan. Look at the people looking at you, look past the people at what’s in the room, and know where the exits are.”
  • I like to use the “stop and think” method. When walking down the street, you stop abruptly and quickly turn around like you are lost.This does two things… if someone is following you, they will also feel the need to stop walking and look around. And gives them away. It also gives you a chance to scan the room and see if anything seems out of place.”
  • “go with your gut instinct. If something feels out of place, or doesn’t feel right, remove yourself from the situation. If the drink tastes funny, don’t drink it.”
  • “I’m not talking about this because I want to scare you. I want more people to watch on Twitch and more podcasts to listen to. Other content creators aren’t a competition, they are an inspiration. I want more of you around me.”
