Dont Gift Subs to Non Followers
Dont Gift Subs to Non Followers it's disappointing when someone who has no intention of watching your stream is gifted a sub, maybe they came by for a minute or two and weren't interested, maybe you beat them in a game and they came by and said something rude then left, maybe they pulled it up on an alt account on their phone before switching to their main account to follow you. Either way it is a waste to gift subs to accounts that have no intention of watching your stream and is an insult to the gifter who's obviously gifting subs with the intention that it will help you grow your stream, otherwise they'd just donate to you directly. Seems an easy fix to make the algorithm give subs to only followers at least until every follower of the account is a sub. Not sure why this isn't a thing already.
I agree, it doesn't really make sense to reward people with a gift sub who don't follow or in many cases have never even watched a channel, and it often leads to hostility from that person when they enter the stream chat and are upset because they don't like the content. It creates tension between the other chatters and them, and makes it awkward for the streamer, mods, and the person who gifted them a sub in the first place. Followers should be the priority when it comes to gifted subs, and then previous viewers, it doesn't seem fair when you see some good chatters often and random haters are being gifted subs they don't even want.
Yes ..this is what i wanted... Gift sub only for the followers ...I literally search for button that disable gifting subs for non followers.. it will be a wasted gift if the one who got the subs gifted didn't have intentions to watch/ follow the stream.
I kinda see it from both ways, I think there should an amount of time you have to watch, but like I just recently got gifted a subscription to a streamer that I had watched for awhile trying to get drop rewards, which you'd think a gift to me would be bad, however it actually made me pay attention more next time she was on, and I followed then and I really like her.
So, I think it can be bad if it gives a gift to a bad actor, but it also can bring people in like it did me.
I think it is more important that some time passes before the viewer, whether they follow the stream or not, is gifted a sub. And there are time that even some subscribers who are following a channel get gifted a sub and they are hardly in the streams. So it would only be fair they are not gifted a sub for the same reasons a non follower is not gifted a sub.
In my opinion gifted subs should be so that they only (if gifted randomly) would go to people followed to that streamer. as the people who actually are following that streamer who been watching them more (propably) are fans or such but maybe can't afford to buy subscriptions, and the people who do not follow them and receive the gift subs maybe dont even really watch the streamer. For short: gifted subscriptions for only followers.
I was just gifted a sub to a channel I have no intention of watching or being affiliated with.
