Removed bans block gift subscriptions
Some channels use bans as a joke, even if they remove them shortly after. However, this permanently blocks the user from receiving random gift subscriptions, even when they are unbanned. If a user isn't banned at that time, should they really be blocked forever from receiving gifts?
I think that something may have changed about this, because around 2 years after I was banned&unbanned I've received a gift sub. (that happened around 2 months ago)
Thing is that I've changed my name twice at this point, so this is a list of what could have happened:
-after you change your name twice they remove block
-2 years after you get banned/unbanned you the block is removed
-they've made that everyone's blocks have been removed around 2 months ago
-or simply around 2 months ago they've made that there are no blocks after getting banned anymore
I'm fine with time outs being used as a channel reward as a joke because the viewer is the one doing that as a joke to either the streamer or another viewer, each knowing it is a joke. But otherwise streamers who use banning, blocking or even time outs as a joke really should be banned from Twitch for two weeks to a month as banning, blocking or time outs are not a joking matter. It is painful to have that happen.
