Nope. Just nope. Dan couldn't care two wits about Thrive, that's for sure. Also, asking for a shoutout from a famous YouTuber is a really good way to get a lot of people mad. (Just look at the comments on any NerdCubed or Yogscast video). And that's even if he sees it. Otherwise we'll just look like whining people trying to get noticed. If anything, we should ask Dan privately over email or similar, but I highly doubt he'll care enough. Or maybe he will.

How do you know he doesn't give a Belgium? Definitely if we contact anyone it should be through email, or something private. That goes without saying.

I agree with Jacob, and similar topics such as this have been discussed many times before. We are not going to consider contacting youtubers for promotional purposes until at least one of the stages has been released, and we are not there yet.

I'm not sure if he accepts Emails anymore, he was fed up with immature Emails so he decided to only focus on Twitter for his fans. (Bad idea.) You may be able to get his Email, it's listed in the description of his videos, and I believe on his information.

I am sorry if I am annoying people with my suggestions.

pretty much what the others said, its too soon, once the demo of the microbe stage has been released we could do some propaganda (i dont say marketing because we're not selling this game, so propaganda sounds more logical)

I have full understanding of that, if you didn't want anyone to say anything about getting you noticed before the Microbe stage, why did you allow the thread to be written on before the Microbe stage? Why allow any stage that doesn't involve the Microbe to be posted on? Why not just block all of the threads until you move on to that subject?

I'm not trying to sound like a Smart-Mule, I'm only suggesting if this sort of thing isn't going well or if it's bothering you, just lock them all until you are ready for them to be posted upon. It seems like an option that would help you guys focus more on the important parts of the game, working in the now instead of the future.

I'm not trying to offend anyone, I feel like I am with every post I make.

I don't think theres any need to actively discourage people from working on other areas. Alot of the time people can't think of anything to contribute to the Microbe stage, but they might still want to contribute in some way, where they actually do have an idea. It'll all benefit us in the long run anyway.

I don't think we can't work on both at the same time. I'm saying that there is no reason to try and attract him now, or any major youtubers at the moment, because we do not yet have any gameplay out, and that is a basic essential to have to show for when trying to get noticed. I have seen many instances of showing this to people too soon and turning them off from even future opportunities to check it out when there is actually stuff to show.

I agree with nick. Maybe when we have something solid, that might be a option, but for now that's a no-no.
