50,000 Subscriber LiveStream Report ~ by iamjamrock
Well, folks, here it is. The ReNDoG channel’s 50,000 subscriber special report. I hope you had a brilliant time watching it, but if you missed it, here’s an account of all ReNDoG’s shenanigans throughout the live stream.
After a few difficulties getting the sound to work, he kicked the show off with a little introductory chat and a few shout outs to the Cyberdogs. Everyone was pumped and ready to begin the stream and ReNDoG was happy to provide a bit of entertainment before the show began.
He started the show with a Minecraft mod called Minerim which is Skyrim and Minecraft meshed together in what we all expected to be a fusion of awesome!
He finally sorted himself out with a race and headed into the game. Though he gave the Cyberdogs chance to choose his race, he finally went for Dark Elf – though noob that he is he went through the wrong door, instead choosing the High Elf race.
Taking hints and tips from the Cyberdogs along the way to adventure, he immediately ran into some unfriendly mobs, but he had no trouble dispatching all of the creeps who tried to waylay him.

Is that a creeper or a tree?
I’m gonna commit a cardinal sin! Pickaxing a tree!
I’m gonna kill you with this piece of meat, creeper!
Squidward! What’s crackening there, China?!
I think I saw something invisible over there.
Ironboundred and iamjamrock interview IvanDogovich
: I know it's been said before, but congratulations on the promotion! How does it feel to be Head Moderator? IvanDogovich
: Thanks! It is humbling and inspiring to have such and awesome team of moderators to work with. They are why I do this job. What they do for the Cyberdog community is incredible.Ironboundred
: As head mod what are your duties?IvanDogovich
: I am the lead for the US/Pacific Team and I have some incredible moderators on that team. Baergo, DSToucan, NeoShade, Pyro, RoanatheOtaku, and Skylinegodzilla. My job is to keep them informed and ensure communication flows. I can handle any issues that arise and can select new moderators when openings become available. One of the great things with the new site is that Razor was able to give some more permissions to the Head Moderators, such as chat logs, and greater permissions on forums and user accounts. As I do things I collaborate closely with WoodyWoodog and ReNDoG to ensure the site runs smoothly.Ironboundred
: Have you always wanted to be head mod?IvanDogovich
: To be honest, not really. I didn't really want to be a moderator, but the moderator team at the time asked me to consider it. My personality is such that I don't push myself forward. I just like to contribute to the team in the best way possible. Sometimes that means leading and sometimes that means following.Ironboundred
: How long have you been a ReNDoG fan? IvanDogovich
: Since late September. I found him after deciding to finally give a Minecraft Let’s Play a chance. Wow... I was quickly hooked! As I caught up to where he was in the series, I joined Dogcraft. I quickly founded Rendog-aholics
as I recognized my addiction and figured other could use the support as well!Ironboundred
: What are your top two favourite games ReNDoG plays?IvanDogovich
: Well, the one that started it for me: Minecraft. I also loved the ridiculous Survival Island start in Tekkit with Real Gox! That was mind blowing. I am really looking forward to Feed the Beast as well. iamjamrock
:What FPS would you like Ren to play? Skyrim, the new Bioshock or Far Cry 3?IvanDogovich
: I think I lean toward Skyrim. I have been watching uko2's Far Cry
and it has been really good, but I think it gets a little repetitive with all of the base assault missions. Though Dishonored is not a game I would have played, it was a ton of fun to go through it with ReNDoG. It's like hanging out with a super cool friend, and what ever game he decides on, I know I'm going to enjoy it.Ironboundred
: What do you think of the new dogcraft?! IvanDogovich
: The new site is ridiculously cool! It was incredible to be a part of putting it together. I was able to collaborate and brainstorm with Razor as he was adding functionality and features to the site and it was awesome! Ironboundred
: When the site was being made, what did you do to help out?IvanDogovich
: Once the site was up, I helped move a ton of the posts over. I prioritised importance of the posts as it became evident that we couldn't get every thing over. Every post had to be copied and pasted individually. Between myself, Roana, Baergo, and SGHUK, we moved over 2200 posts from the old site. Since the new site has been up, I have been giving the posts back, which is why the ridiculous post count that I had (over 1400 ) is finally dropping. We created a dummy account to hold a lot of these posts; "InactiveCyberdogs." If you spot some of your posts in this account, PM me and I'll give it back to you. Ironboundred
: How does this site fare against the old one?IvanDogovich
: I definitely prefer this site. The ability to work on and customise this site is so much greater, there is no contest. I do miss the "store" and "item shelf" from the old site, but there is no good replacement for it with this forum.Ironboundred
: What are some of the things you have done here at Dogcraft?IvanDogovich
: Aside from Rendog-aholics
, I have put together the Dogolith Logbook
, which was a nice trip down memory lane. I really enjoyed making the Thought of the Day thread, as it was super fun and was creative. Once the CyberDog Nation started up, I haven't had time to work on the Thought of the Day.
I've really enjoyed putting together some guides like the DogCraft Noob's Guide
and the guides on SPAM
and BackSeat Moderating
: What are some of the features you like the most?IvanDogovich
: Razor is amazingly talented, and I love the new Chat Styles. The site themes are awesome too. I really LOVE having a spot for the Cyberdog Nation Editors to work on the newsletter before publication!iamjamrock
: What is it about Dogcraft.net that makes it stand apart from the rest of the websites out there?IvanDogovich
: I think one of the things that makes it stand out is the engagement that ReNDoG has with his fans here. You know he truly loves the ability to talk with his fans and share ideas. Another thing that makes this place amazing is the incredible amount of talent here. Check out the FanArt
or Let's Play
sections of the forums to find some incredibly talented Cyberdogs! Finally the incredibly devoted staff that makes this place hum! The dedication that these volunteers have is incredible. Ironboundred
: You are one of the Cyberdog Nation editors what are your duties?IvanDogovich
: Well, as one of the Chief Editors I work with the other editors to come up with Feature Stories, interviewees, and coordinating the other contributor's submissions in a timely fashion. I usually send out a few PMs with reminders on deadlines, and then help put the edition together.Ironboundred
: What do you think of the Cyberdog Nation?IvanDogovich
: I think it is an amazing effort showcasing some incredible Cyberdog talent. I was thrilled when our founder, Deven, started it and quite disappointed when he became inactive. It was such a cool concept that it seemed a shame to see it die. That is when I start talking with some of the other Cyberdogs about restarting it. We haven't looked back since. Ironboundred
: What parts of the Cyberdog Nation do you like the most?IvanDogovich
: I'm quite fond of the ReNDoG Digest, the Features, and Music to Minecraft by. We have some other exciting ideas for sections too and I can't wait to see them. Ironboundred
: Is there anything else you would like to share with the Cyberdogs?IvanDogovich
: Just stay tuned! ReNDoG is celebrating 50,000 subscribers, but we are just getting started! There are tons of amazing things in the works behind the scenes! Make it a point to check out one Cyberdog LP (Let's Play) a week and you will be amazed at the talent! Cheers!We're particularly enjoying the hard work everyone has put into the site. Cheers to you for moving most of everyone's posts over!
YouTube Account Security from WandomWill
On Friday 1st March I had my YouTube channel hijacked by hackers. This was partially my fault due to neglect of my password's safety and partly because there are some clever/horrible people out there who only want to cause damage.
When I came to login to my e-mails, YouTube had e-mailed saying my account was locked due to suspicious activity, and when I finally unlocked my account via their security system my worst fear had happened. I came to my channel to find all my details removed from my channel description, my channel title had been renamed, and the worst of it over 130gb of videos had been deleted (which can't be recovered via YouTube). It took me 96hrs to re-upload everything and I don't want it to happen to anyone else.This article is just an informational warning to my fellow Cyberdogs because I don't want any of you to get hijacked and have your channels ruined.
I have taken some useful information from Google's hints and tips, and compiled the most basic but useful below.Tips to Staying Secure
Tips on choosing a stronger password
- Don't give your password to anyone (this means anyone). It's important to know that YouTube staff will never ask you for your password.
- Choose a strong password that includes letters and numbers, and is something only you would know.
- Remember to log out when you've ended your YouTube session.
- Whether at home or at a coffee shop, leaving your account open leaves your account vulnerable to misuse by others.
- Periodically change your password.
- Don't use the same password on multiple sites.
- Don't send your password via email.
- Don't write your password down.
What to avoid when creating a password
- Mix capital and lowercase letters.
- Include letters, numbers and symbols.
- Make it at least eight or more characters long.
Stay safe and secure, and please don't allow your channels to be ruined by hackers.
- Using a password containing personal information such as your birth date and/or name.
- Using words, slang or acronyms that are common or can be found in a dictionary.
- Making your password all numbers, uppercase letters or lowercase letters.
- Using keyboard patterns (asdf) or sequential numbers (7890).
