  1. Partner Paid Ticket Streams

    You usually get an event at Twitch if you have a large company. As a Partner on Twitch, that should also be possible. For example, if the partner wants to do a ticket stream, it is often not possible to use Cheer with Bits and unlock!

    What can the partner with Cheer with Bits and unlock loot?
    That can be for example partner Twitch Lootboxen as that cheer in his or her stream.

    Twitch Stream Paid Ticket what is that?
    If the streamer turns this on, you have to buy a ticket to see a one-off special stream or pay…

    • Path to Partner Achievement should consider # Subscribers as an alternative/in addition to Viewers

      Right now, the Path to Partner achievements depend on the number of average concurrent viewers (>75). Some channels have a smaller community but a large amount of monetary support benefiting Twitch. The Path to Partner achievements should be modified to support the high-quality channels that are attracting paying subscribers to Twitch but which might have smaller active viewing communities.

      For example, it might be reasonable for partner status to unlock either at:

      75 viewers and 0 subscriber points
      50 viewers and 25 subscriber points maintained for 3 months
      25 viewers and 50 subscriber points maintained for 6 months

      Rather than…

      • Quiet subscription

        As an introverted person, I'd very much appreciate the option of subscribing "quietly". So if I check a box, twitch alerts for this particular sub (including chat announcement) don't trigger, but I get to continue supporting my favorite streamers. Users would still have the option of using the "regular" sub alert (probably by default), for example for x-yr anniversaries, congratulatory PB/WR subs, etc, etc. Basically, sometimes you feel like being social, and sometimes you don't. Having lots of fanfare for subbing is not something everyone wants.

        Indeed subscribing when a streamer is not streaming is an option, but the idea…

        • loyalty badges twitch prime

          I came up with the idea. To add loyalty badges also at twitch prime. For example if you have 3 months twitchprime that bronze crown get or 6 months silver and 1 year and 2 years diamond. Sharing your twitch prime jubilee can be done in the twitch channel livestream, for example.

          • Amazon Smile Charity Integration for bits/subs and broadcasts

            smile.amazon.com allows amazon users to select a charity organization from a massive database and 0.5% of purchases will be given to that charity.

            It would be fantastic if users on Twitch could select a charity from the existing Amazon Smile database on their Twitch profile settings, where an amount is taken from the Twitch portion of every sub purchase or bit purchase. The broadcaster receives the same amount, but a small percentage is donated from the bit fee or Twitch portion of sub revenue. Users making this choice could receive a special chat badge indicating they support a charity!

                • Subscriber points / Subscriber Store

                  Every subscriber is supporting both Twitch and the partnered streamer of their liking. Subscribers get things like emotes and badges, but what if they get even more?

                  If you subscribe to a streamer, you get 1 point for example. It doesn't matter which partnered streamer. If you resub, you get points depending on the amount of months you resubbed: resubbed for the 10th month in a row to a streamer, you get 10 points instead of 1.

                  You can spend these subscriber points at the subscriber store to buy exclusive emotes or badges they can permanently unlock. They can also…

                  • Prorate subscription price based on subscription time not used when purchasing a subscription upgrade

                    If I sub to a user with a 6 month 4.99 sub and then during my third month decide that I want to upgrade my sub to 9.99 I think Twitch should charge me the difference of time remaining and then once my sub renews at the end of the initial 6 months, it would charge me for my plan at the new price.

                    In the case above, I have 3 months left unused in my sub. So for today, to upgrade my sub, I pay $15 to be brought up to the 9.99 tier for the next three months.…

                        Every time you want to subscribe or buy bits you must make a payment. It can also be a lot more convenient. A Twitch wallet is the solution for that. What is Twitch wallet? A Twitch wallet is your twitch credit. You can add money. So you add 20 euros to your Twitch Wallet. Then you can give subben to someone without paying a payment. Where can you see twitch wallet credit? You could see twitch wallet credit for example at your inventory. I would like to hear if you find a nice idea and would like to receive feedback…

                                    It's rather inconvenient for users on other platforms to subscribe at the moment. Currently they have to be given the direct subscription link in order to subscribe. Even if it just were to redirect to a respective browser app, having the option to at least find the subscribe button on another platform would be nice.

                                      • Subscriber spreadsheet

                                        It would be amazing to have a year-end spreadsheet with how many channels we subscribed to and for how many months per channel, as this would be helpful for submitting that information for tax reporting purposes. I realize this is mostly for people who also do some level of gaming for a living, but it's difficult to keep track, especially if you aren't able to afford to sub every month repeatedly. Thanks for the consideration!
