Hi there - I'm going to be offering live streams for games, starting this week for the basketball/hockey.
There are some adverserial people (fuck you - OSU/MSU/Big Ten/NCAA) who also browse this board - fortunately, I've developed a few mechanisms to circumvent this.
1) Links to the stream will not be posted on MGoBoard. Do not post the links to the streams on the board to other users. Direct them to the Discord server URL.
2) The link to the server is https://discord.gg/VEdcKTr
3) Join the server, state your MGoBlog username and copy/paste a URL to a comment in a prior post you've made on MGoBoard.
4) You will be messaged a phrase to edit the post you've provided, and include the set of characters/phrase you were messaged.
5) I will go through your post history and see if you're a MGoBoard regular and can be trusted.
6) If you follow steps 5/6, you will be messaged a stream URL on the Discord server.
7) The stream URL will be new every game. Once you've been verified once, you're on the trusted list and are good to go. You'll be messaged a new URL for the stream for each game.
8) If this gets popular, I'm going to need some volunteers to help with the moderation of new users.
9) Feel free to join the server now and start the verification process. I'm at work so the response to your posts will be delayed. I'll probably get back to you sometime after 5pm EST.
10) Do not post the stream URL in an MGoBoard thread - if you do this, the streaming rights associated with your MGoBoard username will be revoked - there is no tolerance for this.
11) This authentication mechanism was used by the NSA to communicate with the Russians - https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/feb/10/nsa-used-twitter-account-tweet-secret-messages-mea/
Check back here later tonight, we'll do a dry-run for the Illinois/Iowa game.
