My gift to the VATSIM and Twitch communities...


Recommended Posts

This is a work-in-progress, but, it's a VAT-Spy filter which will highlight all known Twitch streamers on VATSIM at any given time. Open up your VATSpyConfig.xml and paste this between the "Filters" tags.

 

EDIT: list updated 10-Feb-2019

EDIT: list deleted; was over two years outdated and contained a lot of no-longer-relevant info.

VATSIM marketing guys should really be on this.

LOL. Hope I wasn't stepping on any toes.

 

I'm not a web coder but I should think it would be relatively straightforward to add a page to the main website with a quick registration form to have a published list you could add your own name, CID, & Twitch handle to, that could auto-export the VATSpy filter or a similar list importable to other popular network monitoring tools.

 

In the meantime, I'm loving the response here. I'll keep adding them as they come in!

Robert I wasn't having a go at you , rereading it I can see how that could've been taken .

 

I was just apreciative you did it and point out that the VATSIM marketing guys should be like you and be proactive using streamers to VATSIMs benefit.

No no no, sir, no worries. This banter is all in good fun. Just my self-deprecating sense of humor. I'm happy it's appreciated and hope that you're correct that VATSIM's marketing team picks up on the idea.

One of the ones I really need to figure out is Fess_ter_geek. He's a fellow vintage aircraft enthusiast so I found myself a kindred spirit with him the one time I caught him on. I haven't managed to see him operating live since just that one time -- so I'm trying to go through his archive videos so I can catch a moment him talking to VATSIM ATC and hunt him down via his callsign at the time. No luck just yet, however. If anyone knows who he is, help is appreciated.

 

EDIT: man, I feel kinda stalker-y about that, having re-read it just now

Cheers,

Woo hoo - I made the original list...
Haha. You're also one of the very very few I've met in person
Now I just feel hurt

LOL. Well, don't. Truth be told, I actually have a separate VATSpy filter for people that I've met in person, and you are on it. I wasn't going to admit publicly that I'm that nerdy, but, I couldn't have you feeling all dissed, LOL!

Cheers,

Careful, he also has a filter for people that go directly to the police department, FBI and CIA for further investigation. I note that he hasn't discussed your appearance on those, but from my intel, they are largely coincidental....
