  1. Twitch advertises a 50/50 revenue split for affiliates and partners - however, this is becoming increasingly untrue. The affiliate agreement outlines that certain costs or taxes are deducted before creators receive payouts, however these 'fees' are becoming more aggregious, whilst remaining perpetually unclear.

    At present, a US viewer gifting 5 subs costs the viewer $29.95. As a UK streamer, I receive $10 of this support. Instead of the 50% promised ($14.98), $4 of this disappears to "Fees". These fees are described as 'certain costs' and 'taxes', however these are never specifically outlined or clearly broken down for the creator.

  2. I think if there were 4 tiers of subs. There would be a more even gap between $9.99 tier and $24.99 maybe try like $14.99. I think people would be more like to sub if they wanted to sub for more than 9.99 but not 24.99 somewhere in the middle.

  3. Subscribe for the amount of time that you have been a follower, e.g. say you have been following someone for 62 months but couldn't afford to subscribe until recently, give us the option to subscribe for the past 62 months, get the sub-badge, and pay the streamer for the past 62 months that you have been a continuous follower. not sure how it would work if you had gift subs/twitch prime randomly throughout the time you followed them, maybe just ignore it and and make it a running total for the entire time.

  4. I would love to see prime subs be added for plus program I currently dont see why prime would not count towards this especially since this new price increase for all paid subs starting next month on the 11th I feel like that would be the best option

  5. If I make a mistake (all too easy) and use my Prime subscription to a channel I don't want, then it appears I'm stuck for 30 days. I'd like to cancel and subscribe to a different channel, but that seems impossible. I don't understand why I can't cancel and subscribe to a different channel. Watching the channel of interest with ads is a complete non-starter for me. The content just keeps marching on (it's live), and I miss a few minutes and totally lose the thread.

    Allow at least one cancel/subscribe change per 30 day period. Otherwise, the prime benefit…

  6. I would like a way to be able to purchase, all the past subs that I missed over the years, of not being able to afford to support my streams, and just being there in spirit for years. It would be nice if maybe once a year for a week, we could spend the required amount say buying 6 subs to show that you supported your streamer for the duration by rebuying all the subs you missed out on. so say I have followed someone for 12 months, but ive only been subbed for 3 months, I would like to…

  7. tl;dr - 12 month subscriptions are only offered to GIFTED subs and not manual (re)subscriptions. Please add an option to (re)subscribe ourselves for up to 12 months.

    Currently, Twitch offers the following subscription durations when subscribing to a channel: 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months. However, if you attempt to gift a channel you are offered a different set of durations: 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months.

    Is there a specific reason as to why the inconsistency exists between gifting a sub and subbing yourself? It would be great to have parity between the two methods…

  8. Would like the idea to host PPV events on stream.

    This is a spin off of subscriber only streams, but let the user set the price of the PPV stream, whether its a special anniversary stream or a live event.

    Pros: adds another line of revenue for streamers
    Adds a different experience for creators and chat
    Easily scalable
    Scenarios: sub anniversary stream, concert, album launch, travel stream, birthday stream, digital event, podcast/video podcast, special guests appearance,

  10. Wondering on a system where the creator could adjust their own pricing for subscriptions. It wouldn't be a small task to change with all the set things already but it would be interesting to see if small channels could set a lower price if it would incentivize more people to support with a subscription. Let's say you set tier 1 to $2, tier 2 $3 and then tier 3 $5. Would the spread of tier be more evenly divide and would the end result yield more income in the larger scale.

  11. How about reward loyal subscribers who stay subscribed on streaks with a free random (or user can chose) emote from the tier above, each month they stay subscribed with a tier 1 subscription and its a streak above say 6 months they unlock 1 randomly selected (or user can chose) emote from tier above, until they unlock them all after that, if they are still (maybe for x months more) subscribed move up to tier 3 emotes and repeat again. This way it rewards those viewers who support channels over the long term, and better then just a sub badge…

  12. I like using subs to get no ads for a channel but I perfer to renew subs myself so I would ask that there be a setting to prevent auto renewal of subs instead of manually having to go to each sub and stop auto renewal.

  13. So, as the title implies, Twitch doesn't pull your Sub Tier Names for your Twitch Alerts at the current moment.

    I know it's not SUPER pressing - there's ways around it - but, uh... potential fix coming soon? Hopefully! :)

  14. One of my viewers made a suggestion offline about being able to subscribe to a channel in a "silent" manner. Specifically, they mentioned people with varying kinds of anxiety that would get in the way of someone subscribing if there was a chance they could be "called out" by the streamer for subscribing.

    I thought this was an important thing, as having training in mental health I know how beneficial even twitch social interaction is for someone with such conditions, and also it would allow someone to be able to be more supportive of their favorite streamers.

    So, maybe a…

  17. A lot of Twitch streamers, affiliates and partners alike, use services like Nightbot and Streamelements for automated services. They are bots and do not contribute financially to Twitch on their own. Twitch bots also periodically use emotes in certain automated tasks, and require a sub for them to use these, among other things. It would be nice to be able to give known bots a non-paid sub, -OR-, allow bots to use channel emotes and other sub-related services permissible by Twitch.

    Just an idea. I mod for several channels. Partner channels periodically use their non-paid permanent subs on bots specifically…

  18. I have a few issues with sub anniversaries:

    1. (highest priority) When shared, sub anniversaries show up in chat & the activity list as a regular sub, even though the popup to share an anniversary vs subbing is different & they are obviously separate events, they just don't show as such. Confusing!

    2. Because of the above, there is no real celebration of this person's anniversary i.e. initial sub date. Streamer isn't prompted to say 'yo congrats! you've been here so long!' or whatever. Why even have anniversaries at all?

    3. If you DO want anniversaries to be special, make them? Like, make…

    Gathering Interest  ·  Ana responded

    Thank you so much for the level of detail and organization that you used to present this idea.

  19. I believe that there should be separate badges for those viewers who had a gifted subscription from those who subscribe themselves every month. That way we can separate the viewers who support the stream from the viewers who simply are lucky to receive a gifted subscription every month. It will also help during community days when the streamer plays with "subscribers". Now everyone is in the same pool and there is no telling who actually supports the stream and who doesn't.

  20. If Twitch has troubles to be profitable, why not make a subscription to let Streamers make content in high quality (like 1080p 60fps 6000kbps~8000kbps or more) or Viewers watch high quality streams ?

    And the free limit would stays around like 720p 60fps or 1080 30fps with 4000~5000kbps, for example.

    On mobile in particular, I think its worth due to the screen size, the diff will not be that annoying, and in bonus it will be less energivorous.

    In hope to see less "features" that beg money depending on the generosity of people, more revenues for streamers or even less…
