    I'm going to go Grammar Nazi on this and ask.
    1. Why is it all one word? The other titles have spaces in it.
    2. Why is it all in caps? The other titles are not all in caps. Also, all caps indicate that you're yelling.
    3. Should it not say "Live Streamer" since that is what the player is? "Livestreaming" indicates that you are currently streaming which is not always the case.

    If I used titles, I would use any other title but this one because of the issues I pointed out above.

    I'm more posting this rhetorically. I suggest you change it. But I also know you have more important things to fix and work on. Thank you

    I believe the purpose of it saying "LIVESTREAMING" is to let people know you are currently streaming.
    I know some streamers run around with the title on 24/7 even when they're not streaming but they're doing it wrong.

    Under "Windows Selector/ Titles" some players have this title.

    I'm emphasizing the issue with the title, not the purpose.

    Special title for when you are streaming. Makes sense! Or others would not know.

    SysOp, please change the title to, "Forsooth, I am Streaming Live, good sir and/or madam."

    Ok, Asmodi showed me that according to Wiki, "livestreaming" is one word referring to something specific. I still consider this to be grammatically incorrect and still dislike the all caps. I agree with Cora on his suggested change!

    One of those winged Oracle Watchers flying over your head would be much more stylish, more classy.

    Billboards over our heads are nice, but sort of immersion breakers. Maybe put a few sparkles coming off it's tail, make it attractive, because that's what the true intent is here, to attract attention helping gather a crowd, encourage esteem for the streamer and thus our game.

    Sota has always been a real class act in it's artful ways and maybe we should capitalize on that.

    A streamer could merit a pet like that to follow the streamer around hovering over their head when they're live streaming instead of a billboard title.

    Make it flashy! Make it really noticable!
    Rum some funkadelic all over it ;)

    I think this would be much more attracvtive while "on camera".

    Between seeing a live streamer on their live stream with a "live stream" title over their heads seems sort of redundant and therefore cheap.

    Our live streamers are host personalities with no need to have "Applause sign" hanging over their heads, which is what special titles are.

    Remember when "light" was this big ball of dripping sunlight over our heads? Maybe that same tech is how these streamer pets should be created... just like casting light, you "cast" your livestreamer pet.
