Woovit was slammed today from fraudulent signups. A bot farm in one country apparently got some time off from mucking around in elections and wanted to play games. Putting geolocation restrictions wasn’t enough to stop it. For a while, it was over one a second, putting quite a strain on our resources. All this to try to get a key from the one offer that had no requirements — even though that offer manually reviewed all requests! Some of these “creators” then abused our email and online help system. It has led us to re-examine some of our assumptions and workflow to still provide good human service on top of our automation.

Here at Woovit we appreciate our creators and want to shine the spotlight on as many of them as we can. We’ve been doing this for a while in our weekly newsletter, calling out two videos a week of standout and upcoming creators. Now that we have a blog, we want to continue this by posting frequent creator interviews.
We’ll use this opportunity to help you get to know a bit about them, what their creator journey has been like, their thoughts on Woovit and any advice they might have for others. Up first we have a Mixer streamer who goes by the handle, PieRatKing. Continue reading “Creator Spotlight – PieRatKing”

Now our default upload will upload all of the assets from Steam. You have the option of deleting any while drafting the campaign, or adding additional assets not on Steam. See for example, our latest campaign for Nantucket: Continue reading “Improved Campaign Creation for Publishers – Steam Asset Uploads & Misc”
PAX South 2018 is just a few days away and we’re going to be there! If you’ve got time in your convention schedule our Platform Manager, Chris “Tons0fun” Carley, will be on site taking meetings about the future of Woovit. Continue reading “PAX South 2018 Right Around The Corner”
We’ll be giving updates on this blog in 2018 on our product updates and the industry we’re in. Our response time to emails will be slower than normal til we resume a regular schedule on January 3rd. Fortunately since we’ve automated the process of getting keys to great video creators hopefully you won’t notice a difference. Happy New Year!
