- Creator-adjacent roles
- Creatorside roles (play on kingside / queenside castles)
Who do creators have on their team, what are the sizes of these creators
- Find the role that all creators no matter the size seem to NEED — what is this role, why? Are they getting paid?
Who are the roles that are completely needed in creating and what are future cool roles to have?
- Editors (priority) — give you more content per stream Gary Vee effect, make you more funny in a sense (see Sanch / Sneaky editors)
- ** Devs / Michael Reeves as a Service - build you meme-y things to make stream / etc. more interactive compared to other streamers (pee counter, drill that goes off on sub)
- ** Twitch / Discord mods / Community pulsers - throw you freebies of things to riff / make content on as the sort of card-holding teleprompters before your stream / while stream is going on — they're closely monitoring chat and async community of what people are KEKW-ing at
"Why try so hard by yourself to be a personality / create good content that gets on LSF / becomes a viral clip and makes you bigger when you can have a team to help you do that easily?"
Earning potentials for these roles

Community Mgrs and Mods
Mods: find you what people are KEKW-ing at in community, moderate your chat — get pulse + manage your community
Community Mgr: surface good community thoughts, run all things community — get pulse + manage your community
Despite this, why mods community roles not getting paid the $$$ like their community manager counterpart?
- Interview Discord / Twitch mods — why do you do it? What's the goal?
- Interview top community managers (Commsor)
Discord / Twitch mods run socials in shifts from 4-8 hours a day virtually for free
Twitch seemed to roll out features to rule out mods earlier (slow mode, follower / sub only mode)
It doesn't make sense to me that community managers are becoming a hot role to hire for while being called a Discord / Twitch mod is today's Internet playground insult.
To put it into perspective, Discord and Twitch mods were community managers long before the role had a name for its job. Between 4 – 8 hour periods as Twitch streamers
In conclusion, ______. Besides, if the Internet really needs a set of people to become comparable playground insults, it's reply guys — those guys really have problems.
