Add 'cyoa' to your stream channel tags and you'll appear on the top bar. Add the url for a quest to the tags to be displayed in relation to the quest. So in Alchemy Quest's case he should add 'alchemy'. This isn't just for QMs, it's for CYOA artists and streamers in general.
Not everyone is bound to succeed, but that does not mean you should not try. No one is sure that their idea will take off and become something larger. No one knows what direction their story will go.

And one success doesn't guarentee continued success.
But if you don't try, you'll never acheive anything.
