Custom Gift Sub Badges and Emotes
Like what happened with cheering recently, I think it would be a really great idea if streamers were able to make custom badges for gifted subs (especially because the highest gift sub badge isn't high enough; see my comment to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310231-subscriptions/suggestions/38573176-add-higher-sub-gifting-badges). Additionally, streamers should give custom emotes if users have given a certain amount of subs.
This would be amazing! This and bit donators would be incredible!
I support the idea of custom gift sub badges.
Gifting subs is arguably (entirely...) more useful to streamers than bit donations. Unfortunately, the gift badges are kind of lame, particularly when the streamer in question has custom bit and sub badges otherwise.
Giving streamers the ability to upload and display custom gift badges should be a relatively straightforward implementation, given the system is already in place for bit and sub badges.
I would love the option to have custom gift badges just like how we can have custom bit badges. I honestly don't know why this isn't already a thing.
This is a 2 part feature request.
First: In the same way that bits lets you select any bit badge, gift badges should stay consistent with this idea. I would like to be able to select any badge I've earned even lower values.
Second: We need more gift sub badges than the current 1000 cap. I know plenty of people in streams I frequent that already passed this including myself. In the same way that bit badges keep going, the gift badges could be designed to be inverted at the next levels to be distinct. I'm actually at the 1.25 bit badge and that level of badges are super awesome to see. I'd like to see the same for gifts because honestly, while I like supporting the streamers I like, that bit badge is huge encouragement to add as well. Just saying that twitch is missing out on a lot money by not giving us more achievements for gifting.
