Ok, interactive info-fun!

Giveaway? I think so.

Wow, they are even doing giveaways on the livestreams on the website now!

@WyzeJasonJ if these are going to be regular things now, might I suggest that you add a new “live stream” tag so those interested can set up an alert/notification (email) for that tag to be notified of the first post every time you announce it, particularly since there isn’t a lot advance notice it’s going to happen.

I like this idea. I was aware of the event only because I have Discord notifications for the announcements channel set up as I previously described in another topic. I can definitely see the value (as in free…as in giveaway…:wink:) in being able to subscribe as tagged here, though.

Still, for the short notice, it looked like there were over a thousand viewers for a good chunk of it.

Pardon my ignorance, but who/what is Kyle?

I believe he’s Wyze’s Head of Brand Engagement. He shows up in a lot of the YouTube product introduction and unboxing videos.

Using @peepeep’s destructions instructions, I just went to my tracking preferences and added Wyze News in Watching First Post under Categories. I realize this’ll catch a lot more than just the live stream events, but I also want to get notified for announcements about things like firmware and app updates. :upside_down_face:

Does anyone know if the same randomly generated usernames gets assigned to multiple viewers?

I thought I won the giveaway on 5/13’s livestream, but it just occurred to me that there were probably more than one viewer with the same generated username. :thinking:

I don’t know, but when I’ve had the chance to attend these live events, I’ve changed from my randomly-assigned username to the one I use here on the Forum. I would guess that each randomly-assigned username is unique, but that’s just a guess. :man_shrugging:

As far as the giveaway is concerned, since they were collecting e-mail addresses as giveaway entries, then I would also guess that they would use the winning e-mail address to contact the winner for follow-up and prize delivery.

Maybe and sort of…I think it tries to keep usernames unique, but I know it forces them to be unique when you actually post. I can explain what I found:

It lets you change your name too and if you change your name to something someone else already has, it will add a bunch of numbers on the end automatically. I know this , because on a previous live stream I tried to change my name to impersonate @cyberdog_17 and it said it would let me post as cyberdog_17 and said that was my new name, but then when I tried to post a message pretending to be him, it added extra numbers on the end to make sure to keep us unique. From Discord where I posted a screenshot of my impersonation attempt:

Sooooo…the point is, if you posted comments, and your comments from your username exactly matched that username, and that is the username that won, then I would think it probably was you since it enforces unique usernames. Why? Did Wyze tell you it was someone else with the same auto-assigned live-chat username who won? Maybe they can tell who it is (ie: maybe the giveaway program is tied to our Wyze email account and not just the auto-generated username). That’s a great question to get some clarification on though. I’ll see if someone can verify that.

This makes sense. I didn’t remember how they did the giveaway. If they did it by email, then that resolves this.

Yeah, late in the event they put up a box over the video (much like with the poll earlier in the event) for attendees to enter their e-mail addresses. I saw at least one person put the e-mail address into the chat pane (oops!), but they were collecting e-mail addresses separately, and I assume they had a way on their end to see that a particular e-mail address input into that box was connected via location (e.g., IP address) to a particular username in the chat pane, whether that username was auto-generated or had been manually changed by the user.

Again, I’m guessing, but this is what would make sense to me if I was on the Wyze end of it. (Would that mean I had wisdom Wyzedom?)

Somebody else who tries to break things? I knew there was a reason I liked you. :upside_down_face:

Oh interesting. Thank you both!

I haven’t received any follow up email from Wyze yet, so I figured either I mistyped my email or maybe there were more than one viewer who got the same username generated.

It’s not a big deal though. With TikTok discounts during major sales being so steep, sometimes it feels like they’re just giving away the cams.
