Sub gifter badges being permanent
Came across this while reading about sub gifter badge: "It stays visible for as long as any gift sub you have given is active, and disappears when your gifted subs expire" I found out today that this was a thing. Which to me is strange because some people gift a lot of subs to support a streamer and the one perk they are being given is temporary, lasting a month at most. I thought it was a bug that the sub gifter badge would go missing but that apparently was not true. I really think it should be permanent. Some people have hit a thousand gifted subs in channels only for it to disappear.
Agreed. 100 gift subs is $500 at Tier 1. We should be allowed to keep that badge over the 1 bit badge.
If you gift e.g. 1k subs (worth 5,000$) to a channel you lose the related sub gift badge 1 month later. (except you keep gifting subs)
If you cheer 1 bit (worth 1ct) to a channel you'll have the 1 bit cheer badge forever (no more cheering required)
Are you kidding, Twitch?
Yeah it sux
I agree. Having gifted hundreds of subs myself, I really would appreciate being able flex my gift sub badge whenever I want, especially for the channel where I have gifted almost 1,000 subs to that channel. Some months, I just get hit hard financially and I can't afford to gift any subs. So does that mean that I can't have my 500 gifted subs badge as a punishment? Doesn't make sense.
Same goes for cheering badges if they disappear after a month of cheer inactivity for a channel.
I think those with 1,000 sub gifts in a channel should have permanent gift badge in that channel.
