  1. The Partner Plus program is a great step in the right direction for creators on Twitch and I am grateful for the opportunity for a 70/30 split.

    However, this program should include gift subscriptions.

    The requirement of “a sub count of at least 350 recurring paid subscriptions for three consecutive months” is only achievable for a small percentage of streamers, even those with a high CCV that qualifies them to be in the top 1% of the platform. It is not only difficult to achieve for even those dedicated to Twitch, but having this requirement may even discourage gift subscriptions…

  2. I'm sure a lot of us have experienced a gift sub from an anonymous gifter to a not so great account name. We currently have NO way to moderate this, which incentivizes repeat offenses.

    I suggest implementing:

    1) Being able to purge or delete the "Anonymous Gifted a sub to X" message in chat.

    2) Toggle gift sub recipients names showing in chat (could be great for more lurker friendly communities too).

    3) MODERATION OPTIONS, PLEASE! Let us not just purge but REPORT the anonymous gifter (bonus points for reporting the giftee account name easily too)

    I know PirateSoftware already…

  3. ISSUE: When someone has gifted a sub to your Twitch account. You are unable to Upgrade sub to Tier 1, 2 or 3 by default.

    You MUST go to Subscriptions page -> Disable Current Sub(Which deletes full time left on that gift) -> Resubscribe -> [Mandatory Tier 1 Sub] from that prompt. Then you are able to complete the action of Re-subbing at Tier 2, or 3 from the default Viewing page.

    Solution: Cumulative time on Gift sub, with immediate upgrade to Tier 1/2/3 (End-user choice).

    Workaround: Default "Disable" triggered from the Stream chat view, allowing "Upgrade Subscription" button to…

  4. Streamers are able to gift subs at a discounted rate to their own channel while live (must be multiple subs being purchased, 5+, etc.)

  5. Give randomly donated subscriptions to the top 50%+ active users of the channel or give donated subscriptions to the distribution of the streamer so that he can play them or give them to the most active. Because subscriptions go to people who came to the broadcast only once and were not subscribed to the channel, and people who come every day for a long time remain without subscriptions

  6. Allow creators the ability to prevent people from gifting subs anonymously (have it be a feature they can turn off and on). People will use anonymous gifted subs as a way to harass streamers (gifting subs to disparaging or downright harmful usernames). These usernames shouldn't be allowed on twitch as they contain violent language and hate speech to begin with.

  7. I believe Twitch needs to do better with how they handle mental health policies. I couldn't find any mention on Twitch's website mentioning having any support for those with disabilities, either physical or mental. From what I have researched online, companies as large as Twitch should have some sort of adherence to the Disabilities Act.
    I recently emailed Twitch asking for a refund because of gift sub purchases I made during a Manic episode during a mental health crisis. Those who suffer from severe Mania can be known to knock down a wall in their house to start a home…

  8. Re subscribing, cheering with bits, hype chats, donations. What do they all have in common? You can attach a message with them. Either it be wanting to express love for the streamer, announce something or just throw in a meme. With how much of the economy gifted subs has become for large parts of Twitch, I think its in due time it gets the recognition it deserves.

    Let people attach a message in chat with their gift, the same way you do as when you resub. This also allows for it to be read by TTS (Text To Speech) so…

  9. why can you no longer buy subs in Germany via SOFORT Banktransfer-/Sofortüberweisung-/ Grio Pay ? Klarna is so complicated to set up. Many Subs will be lost.

  10. I am not sure if this is a safety issue but there are many people gifting subs to people that have never looked at their channel before. Would be nice if there was a setting that could be turned on and off to allow for this to happen as apposed to being spammed by gifted subscriptions from channels you've never visited before.

  11. It would be AWESOME to be able to extend the subscription of a current subscriber in addition to gifting a subscription to a non-subscriber. Sometimes you just need to do something nice for a fellow chatter, but options are limited if they are already subbed! Thank you!

  12. Twitch's process for purchasing 100 gift subs lacked any confirmation or opportunity to cancel. This led to an accidental $499 purchase by a young user, which Twitch is refusing to refund.

    Purchases over a certain threshold (maybe $50?) should require additional confirmation steps to prevent accidental, irrevocable, unwanted purchases by minors.

  13. Give people an option to reject a gifted sub - whenever I take part in a Twitch-raid I drop a follow to the target as a courtesy gesture... unfortunately this turns me into a potential recipient of an unwanted gift , which would be better suited for someone who actually watches target's content.

  14. Des abonnements à la semaine pour 1€ ce serait super bien pour les petits porte-monnaies !
    Et on n'est pas toujours disponibles un mois complet pour profiter de tous les avantages de l'abonnement, par contre si c'est pour une semaine on sait que l'on va pouvoir en profiter pleinement !

  15. Please update the German article on how to give a prime sub. It is wrong and not accurate any more. It confused me and was of no help at all. I spend an hours searching for the little box to tick. Until the friendly amazon Live Chat support was able to help.

  16. Why you don't check if a user follow a streamer and check for activity of this user in the chat?! I'm a lurker and listening streams at the background and sometimes I don't watch it at all, it's so strange to recieve a gift of subscription when I'm a lurker and some person could recieve it but because of people like me they didn't

  17. As an Affiliate, it seems rather odd to me that if an Affiliate wanted to gift a sub to their own channel (e.g. prize or just a kind act), that they can't do it from their earnings. Instead, they'd have to claim their earnings, have the fees and taxes applied to it, then turn around and send the money back to Twitch (more taxes) just to gift a sub to someone in their community.

    The money is already with Twitch. Why not allow an Affiliate to deduct from their earnings without all of the fees and taxes to gift a…

  18. Hi,

    Can we give streamers the ability to block/toggle notifications for Anonymous gift subs or give mods the option to auto-mod whats being gifted.

    I think its fair that streamers are being bullied on twitch because its allowed to anon gift sub to accounts which insult a streamer or someone who supports them.

    I don't understand why this hasn't been thought off seeing people can anonymously bully streamers, mods or other people within a stream.

    Can you sort this please?

  19. I would like my account to have no information about whether or how long I have been subbing if I have previously deactivated or rejected all gift subscriptions. And in addition, for example if I have never subbed before, it will also say that I was not a subscriber regardless of how long it took me to deactivate the sub in the first month.

  20. I'm not always on the site or app when I'm gifted a subscription, so it would be nice to receive a push notification to my mobile device in addition to the site notification. That way, I can jump into the stream to thank the person who gifted me and hang out with the community. This option could be toggled on/off for those who want or don't want a mobile push notification.
