Random Usernames for non AFFILIATE accounts.
Guys please read all of this and vote if you want this to happen. Much Appreciated.
There is a problem for years with any other TWITCH STREAMER especially who are AFFILIATES that they want a USERNAME of their choice but its been taken and used already by any other viewer who is not a streamer or anything. So, to solve this problem here is an idea and I know we all want this. So the idea is that when somebody SIGNUP on TWITCH they will get a RANDOM USERNAME including of random numbers and random alphabets generated by TWITCH. They are normal account and they can do anything like STREAM or WATCH other STREAMERS but they just have random username and if they STREAM, once they get AFFILIATE then they will have the OPTION to have their own CUSTOM USERNAME of their choosing or liking and this thing also implies on EXISTING ACCOUNTS that are NOT AFFILIATES. This can solve the username not available problem for AFFILIATE STREAMERS. and the VIEWERS who just WATCH other streamers DON'T need a CUSTOM USERNAME because they don't need any kind of visibility or exposure they are on twitch just to watch but a STREAMER who is AFFILIATE need exposure and visibility and a CUSTOM USERNAME of their choice. So please TWITCH make this happen and its a problem for many years and many AFFILIATE STREAMERS are facing this issue including me and all of this suggestion or idea I think is the thing we all need and its a valid idea and I love to hear on this from you guys please TWITCH make this happen. I LOVE STREAMING ON TWITCH. LOVE and THANK YOU TWITCH.
This is a terrible idea.
As an affiliate, I'm sure this makes a lot of sense to you. But for the majority of us who are not affiliates yet, this locks us out of the ability to brand our stream and build that brand into a successful affiliate-worthy channel. Your idea is good for users who are already affiliates, but very BAD for streamers who want to grow to that level. SabinJr is a personality, but xBB3fp8Ry has no chance to grow.
But besides that, Twitch is a social platform. This isn't 4chan where Anon rules the house. We have names, identities, and friends. Our username is what we are called when we see our friends in chat, and it's what streamers call us when they see us in chat. If I stop being SabinJr and just be xBB3fp8Ry, it will be impersonal and boring. Most people would leave Twitch, I think.
