How to Lurk

  1. Visit Lurkinator.net.
  2. Enter your Twitch name on the webpage (if you are a streamer and want to be on the community streamer list).
  3. Enter a few streamers you want to watch (optional, you don’t need to).
  4. Press the “Start” button.
  5. Your browser will open a multi-Twitch style layout playing your favorite streamers along with the Lurk community streamers.

How to Grow your Stream

  1. Add your Twitch name to the text box before you launch Lurkinator. This will put you on the community streamer list.
  2. Run the website as much as possible. The longer you watch, the longer you will be watched when you are live.
  3. Use it on your main computer or use it on any computer(s).
  4. You don’t have to run it while you are live (unless you want to), as long as you are using it during other times to accumulate points!
  5. If you have questions or feature requests, please ask.

How it Works

When you launch Lurkinator on the web, you are watching the Lurk community streams.

If you enter your Twitch name on the website,  you instantly become a Lurk community member, and everyone using the app will also be watching your stream. In other words, you become part of the team and get discovery, interaction, and views from everyone using the Lurkinator.

This helps streamers gain discovery (because everyone sees your stream), interaction (users can type in your chat), and views (everyone using the system is watching your stream).

You also get points as you watch. The website tracks the people who are viewing, so each person who is viewing and gathering points will remain on the Lurk community list.

As people watch your stream, your points slowly decay (points get spent when people watch you). This is to prevent users from staying on the list if they are not using the Lurkinator regularly. Don’t worry, as long as you use the Lurkinator regularly, you will stay on the list and always have points!

The result is those who are viewing the Lurkinator regularly, get played on Lurkinator when they go live. If you don’t use the app regularly, you will fall off the list eventually.

In a nutshell, this system functions to auto-syndicate a multitwitch-like webpage. It generates a webpage that embeds more than one twitch stream based on a syndicated list of names. The list of names is made when a streamer adds their name to the list and enter the website.

Is this botting?

Absolutely not!

  1. We love Twitch and will always comply 100% with the ToS.
  2. Robots aren’t watching the stream(s), YOU ARE (unless you are actually a robot, then technically I suppose YOU would be botting, kappa). Every Lurkinator user is a real person who has chosen to watch, and whom has willingly and knowingly opened their web browser for the purpose of viewing the embedded Twitch streams. Embedded Twitch streams are not automated views, and they can only occur when a user has opened the Lurkinator webpage and views the streams in their browser. This system is built to be fully compliant with Twitch ToS, and is intended to use Twitch services the way they were designed to be used (eg. embedding one or more streams in a browser).
  3. Embedding a stream is when developers use Twitch’s embedding feature to place a stream and/or chat on a third party website. This is a normal practice, and is very similar to multitwitch, which has been popular with the Twitch community for many years. If you want to learn more about how to embed Twitch streams, see the Twitch Developers website.

How do Points work?

You earn get points as you watch. As people watch your stream, your points slowly decay (points get spent when people watch you). This is to prevent users from staying on the list if they are not using the Lurkinator regularly. Don’t worry, as long as you use the Lurkinator regularly, you will stay on the list and always have points!
