Streamer Toggle - Show/Hide Cancellation Reasons
I'm not a large streamer, but hear me out. There's an argument that a streamer shouldn't see the reasons why others cancel subscriptions as it might cause resentment toward their community.. and I see and hear the validation toward mental health and awareness. I think the easiest solution here would be a toggle that would allow the anxiety to be skipped, and for a streamer who identifies that they might develop resentment towards their community to dodge the resentment. Have the toggle to 'hide' the reasons on by default on roll-out, and a streamer would have the choice to view cancellation reasons.
I think that seeing the cancellation reasons as a broadcaster would allow for potential invaluable feedback on content and understanding, and denying a streamer this knowledge would be impeding growth. Knowing that a portion of your audience unsubbed because you stopped playing <insert voxel game> and started playing <insert shooter game> is important knowledge, and while it might cause anxiety or resentment in some, it is valued knowledge for others. The best 'all around' solution to this issue would be to provide the knowledge to the streamer, but in a way that those who are concerned about knowing won't be 'swimming' in the knowledge on day 1. The toggle solution, with the information 'hidden' by default is that best all around solution.
If this is to be added please consider having it a toggle option that needs to be opted in to. There are many creators, myself included, who suffer from anxiety or other mental health issues and we would look at these and dwell on them and they would affect us greatly. Wondering why we aren't good enough, over analysing the reasons given and trying to change things that may end up hurting us more in the long run.
