Add a queue to /shoutout
This has been a great new feature that Twitch has added recently that has helped so many people gain new followers.
One thing that I think its lacking is a queue system. I understand that the shoutout needs to have a cooldown but often times multiple raids come in at the same time and being unable to shout out both people means that one gets the shoutout and we forget to do the other one when the cooldown is up. Even adding a queue system of up to 5 streamers would be extremely helpful in making sure everyone gets the recognition they deserve!
Add a queue for /shoutout !!
I am a moderator that keeps tracks of raids and notifies raiding streamers that I'm waiting for the 2min cooldown to give them a /shoutout. Super easy.
That said, still, /shoutout should've come out of the box with either a queue or the ability to shout out multiple people at once for any reason. And now there's a 2hr cooldown for shouting out the same person? If the decision makers have concerns regarding the /shoutout feature, then give it it's own settings and let the streamers have the relevant options made available to them.
This feature has way more restrictions than it needs, and it needed none in the first place.
This would take a swing-and-a-miss feature and make it a solid hit.
That would be very useful!
As a mod in several channels... YES please and thank you!
Yes pleeeeeeeeease, this is such a great idea and would be incredibly helpful!
yes yes yes!
please please please!
Please add the queue system
Awesome idea, improving on an already amazing feature!
i love this idea, good idea and thanks for sharing <3 !
Do it!!!! Please and thank you!!!!
Please Twitch. We really need this!! Even as a small streamer I have run into issues. The /shoutout command is amazing!! This would make it the only shoutout command I use.
Please, please, please!!!!!!
This is a great idea. Being able to promote more streamers is a great way to grow a community and suggest other streamers of interest.
Please, please, please add this!
How is this not already a thing!
It does get tiresome having to constantly type out the shoutout command after what seems to be close to a minute only to be greeted with the cooldown notification, only after you send the message. To ensure as a mod I don't miss a needed shoutout if there are multiples needed, I basically have to keep spamming the command until it eventually goes through, and this takes me away from actually modding the channel. A queue system would indeed be a good solution to this issue.
If possible, the command could also be modified to have multiple users in the same command ("/shoutout user1 user2 user3", etc) to prevent having to spam the command for each shoutout, but this would be much less important than having the queue feature in general.
