    The Academy of Magical Arts/Magic Castle Membership Advice

    Ah, the AMA. If that's a place you want to belong to then it can be done. Networking is probably your best bet. Attend conventions, go to SAM and IBM meetings. Meet and befriend others, and it shouldn't be long before you've got enough signatures to process the application.

    Brand New Magician

    Good Evening! And welcome to the community. You've got some pretty awesome questions so let me see if I can't offer my own insight. Seeing as I'm not the first one to respond, I'm sure I've probably echoed some other peoples advice but here goes. These are pretty commonly occurring...

    No Stupid Questions

    May as well toss in my two cents. Why is Learning magic on YouTube bad? It's a good way to learn a bad trick. Most people putting stuff on youtube are either inexperienced themselves, having just learned a trick, or are in violation of ethical behavior, which is never good to begin...

    Magic for Humans uses camera tricks?

    If you are fooled by a trick using a stooge, then the magic wasn't for the stooge. It was for you. To that end, it was successful.

    How to Get Tips?

    I've been itching to write another essay in recent months. I've been thinking about the subject of busking. Performing for tips, be that on the street or at a banquet, party, etc. How to get them? How to maximize your earning potential? etc. Would anyone find this useful?

    Theory11 Discord Channel?

    I concur with the above. I'm not above starting the server myself, but I think it would be better if someone on the T11 team does it, or at the very least sponsors and supports it.

    Theory11 Discord Channel?

    @Jonathan Bayme & Team, Why don't we have a T11 Discord channel to live chat about magic? I'd be willing to start one up if you guys wanted to throw the official support behind it. Or I'd be glad to join if you guys wanted to start it up yourself. Just seems like something we should...

    Does it make a difference to the spectators?

    It can really depend on what you're trying to do. If you're doing a chain of similar style effects, such as Ambitious for example, or object to impossible location, then having different methods will help conceal what you are doing. Otherwise, I'd say no. I'd say stick to what you are...
