Online Livestreams, Community Practices, and Assemblages. Towards a Site Ontology of Consumer Community

Examining online livestreams from the Dota2 game community we show that multi-level sites allow for assemblage heterogeneity without requiring alignment and that community practices might be universal but depend on specific sites.
