  1. Me gustaria tener la opcion de enviar subscripciones de regalo a canales aleatorios dentro de una categoria, vease GTA5, puedes comprar subscripciones aleatorias a los viwers concretos de un canal concreto, pero no puedes decidir que no quieres apoyar a un creador especifico, si no que apoyar a la categoria que a ti te interesa mas ver, asi enviarias las subscripciones a los viwers o apoyo directo a los streamers que esten en esa categoria independientemente de si tu les sigues o los estas viendo o inlcuso sin conocerles, dado que para donar en un lugar concreto ya tenemos la…

  2. I suggest limiting the number of consecutive gift subs a person can receive for a single channel to 2 or 3. I have seen users in chats receive gift subs month after month for the same channel that they never personally subscribed to and never contribute bits or pass along gift sub they have been gifted. When their gift sub runs out they start spamming the chat until they get another gift sub. They are always subbed to a channel I have supported with gift subs and bits and yet they enjoy the same perks I have paid good money…

  3. Give the option to the gifted person an option to deny a gifted sub. I could have been just browsing channels and left the stream because I might not be interested and I would not like to see a gifted sub a few days later like I have in some. For the person that gifted it, it can go into a gifted sub bank as the refund and he can give it to someone else.

  4. Last week I got a gift sub for a channel I no longer follow, due to personal reasons. I haven't visited the channel since then, yet I still somehow received a gift sub. I know you can disable gift subs from channels you don't follow, however, if I wanted to leave that on, I feel there should be either another setting to disable unfollowed channels, or it should be automatic, as it has the potential to be quite awkward, to be frank, depending on the person's situation.

  5. Hi,

    Maybe you could add a black list, allowing poeple to randomly gift several poeple but not poeple in the black list.
    Or, let the possibility to target several viewers at the same time. Something like "send sub gift to : viewer X, viewer Y, viewer Z..." Something like that.

  6. Sometimes I watch a stream to see what I think. A while later I can receive a gift sub. It seems like a waste if I get it when I have not even followed the channel. Better if someone more interested gets it.

    Edit: I found the setting in the security section for this. Maybe it should be enabled by default?

  7. I feel like being gifted a sub as a mod takes away from the community involvement. I would rather have someone in chat get the sub and not me. Make an option so the streamer can turn off gifted subs for moderators.

  8. You receive the same message when you do a gift sub for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months. It could say for how many months too.

    E.g.: Gift Subscription - Tier 1 for xxxxxxx

  9. Give gifter options to randomly gift viewers in chat first, viewers that have followed streamer longest, viewers that used to be subscribers and completely random.

  10. Recently I've had huge amounts of gifted subs, however sometimes large packages of randomly gifted subs end up going to bots that don't require it e.g. Nightbot, or Lumiathingamabot, bots that I require for my stream. It would be useful to have a blacklist that prevented certain users from being gifted subscriptions, to give gifted subs to people that would actually care and be grateful for a gifted subscription.

  11. I would like to be notified when subscriptions that I gifted have expired. Bonus points for an option to gift a re-subscription in the same notification. Obviously this notification would have to be on/off depending on user preference (some gifters dont want to be reminded).
    God tier bonus would be a possibility to gift a subscription before it expires. It kind of connects with the "community gift", where chosen person is currently subscribed and his/her sub ends in X days.

  12. I have been in a lot of streams that had lovely people tossing out gifted subs with no end. Sadly, sometimes kinda random people get those subs since there is no good way of finding someone "deserving". Right now, you have to actively notice someone in chat yourself, or gift to random people. sadly, ive seen people start spamming, being rude or even being extremely racist after getting a sub.
    Thats why i would absolutely love a feature to find someone "deserving" of a sub. some ideas i had for that would be options to:

    "Gift sub to longest follower" …

  13. So.. In the email, that small boxy bit where it says i gifted a sub to some streamer's chat, would you show the Unchanged Name of the streamer first? And only then list the name of their custom sub tier names.. This has caused me a lot of confusion and some good chunk of the email replying person's time to clear up it was not a hack, but a person i know i gifted to .w.

  14. I gifted a sub to a friend of mine and less than 30 hours later the streamer deleted everything on their channel (Banners, Emotes, Past Broadcasts, Etc) and submitted a request to have their channel deleted permanently (Which was granted about 2 days afterward). The recipient of the gifted sub was not able to use any of the benefits. I inquired about a refund due to the unique circumstances, but was denied as it was not due to a technical issue or fraud.

    There should be a policy in place that allows refunds on all subs (gifted or regular) if…

  15. Was having a discussion to today with people about gifted subs. One feature many of us agree on would be able to give a gift pack of subs 5-10-20 whatever the number, but be able to pick who we give those subs to.

    Allow a drop down menu, or even have bubbles off to the side so we can click their name. 10 gifted, choose 10 names. Could we see this feature in the near future?

    Or could we see a feature where it prioritizes those who are currently viewing instead of being random?

  16. Gift sub badge should be sub points not sub count

    Why does a tier 3 gift sub count the same as a tier 1 for the badge?

  17. I was one of the 5% to be selected at random to test this feature. However, this seems to be the only place to submit feedback on issues being tested on Twitch.

    I like to see a streamer's viewcount from the homepage, it acts as an indicator of them doing something special when the count rises higher than normal. The gift sub icon seems pointless as is, but if it must stay then it should be somewhere that doesn't conceal basic stream information from the viewer.

  18. I’m not rich, so I don’t want to use recurring payments to continually sub. I just want to use a token and gift one sub at a time.

  19. Gift sub to only online users os chat users. Because Twitch have so many bots, we don't want to give subs to bot. A way to filter gift sub to accounts with registered email or/and cellphone number, like anti-spam chat filter, but for give gift subs.

  20. *Hide the name of the receiver of the gift sub, i feel that sometimes people dont feel comfortable when they get gifted subs, maybe an option for them to announce if they want or just keep it hidden
    *gift to raiders to the raider channel
    *sub gift to viewers that came from channels that showing in own channel analytics
