Yo! Kappa Kappa is set up to be a forum for "Stream Monsters". It amazed me that even to this day, a year after the launch of Twitch.TV, and after the announcement of the recent partnership between Ustream.TV and Sony, that there still wasn't a forum for the community of stream monsters. Reddit and Facebook just don't have the same conveyance of information that you find on forums.
What is a stream monster? A stream monster is someone who watches an online stream. While originally, the term had a more negative connotation, giving insult to those who only "watch" video game competitions, rather than actually competing in them themselves, the stream monster community quickly embraced the name and adopted it as their nom de guerre.
Why "Yo! Kappa Kappa "? The name was given to me by Francisco Martinez @frantastic23 as multiple different jokes in one. Not only does it include Kappa, but it is also a play on the children cartoon Yo Gabba Gabba! The term "gab" means to talk; idle chatter. In addition, Kappa is a greek letter, which allows us to make yet another play on the idea of community with "fraternity".
Who am I? I am Jaxel, owner and administrator of this website. I've been gaming my entire life and in recent years, put my efforts into streaming many of my gaming sessions and tournaments. In addition to my Twitch.TV channel, I have over 5,000 videos on my YouTube channel. As a professional streamer, I understand the importance of stream monsters and how we would be nothing without them.
