The Leading with Class stream for tonight unfortunately is canceled. Brie is still awake & doesn't think they'll be functional by 7pm, so we're going to play it safe & get some rest. You can always comment questions here, on Twitter, on Instagram, on Patreon, & at leadingwithclass at Gmail!

This is something I'm thinking of starting over the next month, and I'd like your input on how best to collect people's submissions (is a Google form okay? a contact page?), and any feels on the format. I will ask that submissions are only done with permission, because consent.

Does this sound good to anyone? Would you want to hear a little announcement of recognition read about you or a friend or colleague? Tell me your thoughts! <3

Not to mention, as someone changing names, hearing someone say "Hey Beau!" has been truly magical and vital for me, when I am struggling very hard to feel like a real person. And the game industry SERIOUSLY lacks recognition, especially when it's not something we pay into.

And it got me thinking, a LOT of us are alone, working by ourselves at home every day. How nice would it be to have someone say out loud, "Hey (name), you did a great job at game this week!" and have it recorded, replayable, and able to be shared? How awesome would it be?

Part of why I want to do this is because I follow a lot of loadingreadyrun stuff incl BengineeringTV a& I also follow Tanya DePass, and I've realized one of my favorite parts of their streams (as a kind of lonely person at times, f2f wise) is hearing them say "hey, BrieBeau!"

I tweeted about a new type of stream I wanted to do:

I wanna do a once-a-week brief stream where I take submissions for recognition in games, for anything, from good RP to releasing a game to anything else, Basically I want to make a form where people send in requests for recognizing their friends and colleagues, & announce them.
