Youtube - How to report things that make you uncomfortable!

YouTube is an excellent website for: DIYs, gaming, watching other YouTubers and becoming one yourself! This website/app is good for exploring and learning more fun, crazy stuff. But sometimes, when you’re not expecting it, unwanted stuff pop up which you might not want to see.  This blog is here to help! This is here to guide you though it!

So let’s begin! For example, if do see something you don't like and you feel really uncomfortable then first of all, tell a parent or carer at home about this. It might be that the video is truly distrubing, so you might feel that it is necessary to report the video. If you scroll down, underneath the video description, you will see add to, share and more. If you click on more, you can either report or add translations. Click on report (you have to sign in so this is when you probably get a parent or adult to help you). Once you have finished, click yes or anything that agrees with you. Then the video is reported! Now the video will be probably be taken down.

Gruffalo Wood

This app is based on the story of The Gruffulo by Julia Donaldson. On the app, I can see the characters in the story like the little mouse and the Gruffulo.  In the app you can find out about different types of trees. Did you know, an English Oak tree can grow up to 40metres tall?

The first game asks you to drag the tree that you want to plant in the forest. That’s the best thing about this game!! You can also buy games based on other books by Julia Donaldson. Next, I want to play the game Room on the Broom!

Minecraft Commands!

‘Commands’ are in-game cheats that can make life for an experienced player much easier. The only problem is, lots of players don’t know where to find them. Some useful commands to know off the top of your head are:

  • /gamemode. This changes the mode you play in and affects your experience as a player. If you put‘s’ after the command, it will change you to survival.
  • /tp. This teleports the player to a desired location. This uses ‘x’, ‘y’ and ‘z’ co-ordinates – which can be found by pressing the ‘F3’ button
  • /weather. This changes the weather depending on whether you enter ‘clear’, ‘rain’ or ‘thunder’
  • /time set. This changes the time of day. It uses either numbers to represent digital time or the words ‘day’ and ‘night’

Rocket League

Rocket League is a ‘pegi 7’ rated console car-football game (XBox 1 and PS4)  – which means football with cars as the players. The game is very friendly although when you are playing, there is an online chat which allows you to talk to the opposition and your team.

In Rocket League there are several rules on how to stay safe for example, don’t tell anyone your personal details. If someone says something that makes you feel uncomfortable, tell an adult and DO NOT reply! Other things not to do include scoring own goals on purpose to annoy your team mate as they could say something they swiftly regret because you are ruining their game.

 

Let us know if this blog post inspired you to play!
