Block receiving gift subscriptions on ANY channel
I like to lurk on Twitch, but I have an account so that I can follow streamers and know when they go live. The current problem is that I can only block receiving gift subscriptions on channels I don't follow. This means if I don't want to receive gift subscriptions I would have to unfollow all the streamers I am currently following, which would make having an account pointless. I do appreciate the subs I have been randomly gifted via community gift subs, but they won't bring me out of lurking, and they won't encourage me to spend my own money to subscribe.
Sometimes my depression and anxiety affects me in a way in which I do NOT want to receive gifted subs and in general I prefer other people receive gifts rather than myself. I would love to have the option to turn off or on receiving gifted subs from ANY channel.
We currently have the ability to opt-out of receiving gift subscriptions from channels you don't currently follow.
But why isn't there a feature that allows you to opt out of the subscription gift itself?
I need the ability to opt out of the gift of a subscription even on channels I follow.
I would like to refuse to receive the subscription gift itself, regardless of whether I followed or not.
i would like to block all gifted subs as well
i doubt twitch would ever do this, but they should. as a lurker i like watching new channels, but there are people less fortunate than me who would be better served by a gifted sub. but because of this policy i am forced to not follow many streamers i normally would, and because some of them have follower only chat i cant participate in their chat either.
still an issue here, please get it done asap
There is a option to block subscriptions to channels you're not following however I'd like to see this taken a step further to stop receiving gift subscriptions for any channel regardless of whether or not you're following that channel. This could be done for each channel individually or just a setting that effects every channel although I'd prefer having the ability to set it to individual channels instead of a mass gifted subs option.
