|Started on justin.tv, hit the international viewer limit,
attempted to move to livestream which had a 1000 viewer limit, horrible quality, and constant ads,
then moved to twitch.tv("tagging" the stream as "gaming") which avoided the international viewer limit
Switch happened 2 hours 30min in to the DB5 run.

|2010-04-15||DB4||GoogleDocs||Google Docs Multi-user editing becomes avaliable||https://drive.googleblog.com/2010/04/a-rebuilt-more-real-time-google.html||This is the ability to have a collaborative spreadsheet.|
|??2013-11-30??||DB7+||GoogleDocs||Bug Encountered by the DB7 VST team with the revision log||Unknown, link / bug report could not be found||Google Docs Revision log limit/bug raised past 1.7 million revision log entries.
This being fixed prevented the VST from having to create a new spreadsheet mid-run during DB8
|2014-06-25||DB8||GoogleDrive / GoogleDocs||Google Drive multi-user was added||https://gsuiteupdates.googleblog.com/2014/06/dedicated-desktop-home-pages-for-google.html||This allowed better organization of the VST spreadsheet archive|
|2014-08-06||DB8||Twitch||Twitch adds overzeallous VOD muting||https://blog.twitch.tv/important-changes-to-audio-in-vods-35939b33ee2a||VOD muting (30 min per-detection) for an undisclosed list of "songs" meant the VST could no longer use Twitch's Highlighting system, and thus had to start using independent capture boxes.|
|DB9||Twitch||Twitch implements a 48 hour stream broadcast limit.||Unknown, link / "feature" add page not found yet.||This limit just makes the streamer re-connect after 48 hours (really 47h 59m 50sec).
Implementation of this "feature" happened between 2015-08-30 and 2015-09-08.
This is almost assuredly in response to several Twitch Plays Pokemon VODs that were 193, 140, and 212 hours in length, and their VOD player messing up after a VOD is over 72 hours long.
(The final 212 hour VOD starting on 2015-08-30, and 48h only VODs starting on 2015-09-08)
|2017-03-07||DB11||YouTube||YouTube implements a secret 99 videos per-channel per-day limit.||https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/35919708||This prevented the VST from being able to finish uploading the DB11 run until Dec. 4 2017 (the run ended on Nov. 24)|
|2018-11-09||DB12||GoogleDocs||GoogleDocs implemented a "feature" that prevented forumlas from running when 30+ people are in a spreadsheet.||Unknown, link / "feature" add page not found yet.||This broke the sheet transferring at the beginning of the run, all formulas were moved to transfer sheet to solve this.|
|2018-11-10||DB12||Twitch||Twitch implemented a previously unknown 24 hour continous watch limit.||Unknown, link / "feature" add page not found yet.||This caused both wubloaders to miss Alex and Ash's entrance at nearly the same time since they both hit the limit within 30 seconds of each other.
An entirely new wubloader was written to combat this problem, with custom HLS capture.
|2019-11-08||DB13||Twitch||Twitch breaks 3rd party stream viewing clients.||Github link for StreamLink on the issue.||This caused multiple people's captures to fail, and caused a mad scramble with the VST capture to fix the problem before the nodes had to re-connect after the next stream drop as this happened ~3 hours in to the DB13 run.|
|2020-10-08||DB14||YouTube||YouTube removed the "Auto-add to playlist" feature (among other things) because ease of use is for suckers.||Archive.org link of Youtube documentation warning.||This broke the Day # playlist auto-generation as well as auto-add in to the RDP playlist, the VST had to write their own playlist manager to compensate.|
|2021-08-16||DB15||Python||Python 2.x's EOL started becoming a problem.||Github link for VST Wubloader on the issue.||Python 2's age & EOL meant things we use are no longer being tested for compatability which broke a lot of things, thus causing Ekim to port all the wubloader Python 2 code to Python 3, this took almost a month.|
