Sure! Please send any letters or parcels to:
The Yogscast, PO Box 3125, Bristol, Avon, BS2 2DG, UNITED KINGDOM
If you are based in the UK, we recommend sending items via Royal Mail, as this ensures that it reaches us promptly.
If you are not from the UK, we recommend sending parcels with a tracking number, as international items can easily be delayed or misplaced in the mail system.
Please do not send any perishables, and make sure to wrap fragile items well, as they may not survive the journey!
Unfortunately, this is something that we are not able to offer at this time.
Are the characters NPCs or players?
The characters that you see in Shadow of Israphel (SoI), are advanced AI NPC's...only joking - they're real people!
I'm a good builder, can I help out?
The people that help with the builds are close friends of Simon and Lewis. These are the only people allowed onto the SoI server.
Is there any way to get onto the SoI Server?
The SoI server is a closed Whitelist server of which there is no way to gain access to. We are already a large community of friends and don't currently require additional peoples' assistance.
When will the SoI map be downloadable?
The map will be available to download once the series has completed. There are also some plans to perhaps turn it into an adventure map.
When will the next SoI be released?
Shadow of Israphel is not created to a schedule and is released once the quality is of a high standard.
It is not cancelled.
Awesome! Send it as an attachment via email to We will take a look as soon as possible, and either use it in a video or feature it on our Facebook page.
Please don't always expect a response; we receive a large amount of emails every day - but we do read every single one of them!
You can also post it to us at our PO Box address. However, please note that any art sent in will be kept - unless requested otherwise in a letter included with the artwork - so make sure you've taken a photo of it before you send it!
Here's the principles we follow on a daily basis. Hopefully they will help you too:
- Use the highest quality equipment you can afford so you don't sound too loud/quiet/distorted and your videos arent recorded at below 30 FPS.
- Pick a niche/game that is massively popular and focus on filling gaps that appeal to that audience - e.g. achievements or boss guides.
- Use what you're good at! If you're a talented musician/builder/programmer/artist, you can carve out your own niche - e.g. parody songs, speciality mods or animations/live-drawings.
Simon is a naturally funny person and part of Lewis' goal was to "share him with the world." Lots of people enjoyed hearing his unique perspectives on things as they played games together - and it all started from there. Plus some World of Warcraft raiding 'guides'.
We have since expanded the number of Yogscast channels to include many of our old raiding buddies from World of Warcraft, and others we picked up along the way in our gaming lives.
Our name came from a World of Warcraft Guild we used to be a part of - the 'Ye Olde Goone Squade' (YOGS) from the Something Awful Forums.
We recommend that you first visit the official website for the game or software you are having issues with, as we do not possess technical support knowledge.
If you would like help in setting things up, please feel free to browse our forums for help, or post your issue/server set up problems in the relevant area, and the community may be able to help you.
We have a hiring section in our forums for positions that we look out for. We will post in there if at any time we are looking for additions to our group. Every thread is read, and kept in mind if we are looking at recruiting a new staff member.
Please note that we usually are only looking for additional admin, moderating or editing staff, and not Youtube content producers.
Make sure that you have read this thread before applying, otherwise your application will automatically be rejected.
Livestreams are not scheduled events, and usually only occur at special times of the year, such as for the Christmas Charity Drive.
If one is going to take place it will be announced on the Facebook/Twitter, and also on our website. You can always follow us on Twitch.tv HERE which tells you when we go live!
Yogpods aren't currently our main priority, but we do want to create more as soon as we have free time! Lewis explains our reasoning in full detail HERE.
