Gift subs to more than one specific user at once
Right now you can gift a sub to one specific user. Or you can gift to the community, which will chose randomly who gets a sub.
I think it would be great if we could collect a couple of users first and then give out 5 or 10 or more subs at once to selected users.
This is much better for the community since this way sub-gifters can target active users instead of the random selection picking out rarely lurking followers.
would love this implemented, currently a hassle to do by hand for several specific users and no API to cover sub gifting
It could be great that we can choose the users to whom we gift suscriptions when we gift more than 1.
For example, gift 5 by making a list with the names of the users
this, especially during a hype train, i want to gift lots of subs but i hate how they are so random, if i could do a comma delimited list to specific users then a single purchase, that would be beneficial for everyone... and easy to implement? or right click on chat name and add them to list.
For the longest time, I've been only gifting 1 sub at a time because randomly gifting subs to the community regularly gives them to individuals that aren't even active in chat - how silly! >.<
If you want to gift multiple subs, you can let Twitch pick randomly, giving those subs to trolls, bots, and others. OR you can click each persons name, and gift directly, multiple times. And if you gift multiple times, it can be seen as spamming - and yes, some streamers get mad about being given money like this...
Now, there are multiple feature requests for a better algorithm for selecting users to be gifted a sub. None of which have been acted on in over a year. Perhaps it's tricky to determine the fairness of such a change.
However, generating a simple check box list of unsubscribed users, that a gifter can select from would avoid the downsides of the current auto-selection, would be utilized by those specific users most interested (as to not negatively impact anyone who dislikes the change), and would be simple to implement.
For clarity, this would exist alongside the current "choose for me" approach. A gifter would be able to either method.
Agreed! It would be great to be able to tick users from the viewer list or from a list of active chatters.
Please add a way to gift multiple subscriptions to specific viewers to the same streamer.
