Anonymous gifting bugged out
It seems like anonymous gifting checkbox has disappeared for me.
i.e. i can't gift anonymously en-masse to community.
However clicking on individual user and gifting to specific user can still be anonymously gifted.
Apparently, i am not the only one facing this issue.
anyone has any idea?
Option to cheer bits anonymously disappeared for me too. please bring it back.
For me this problem started after I gifted non-anonymously once.
I had always gifted anonymously before.
A button "See all cheer emotes" appeared now. It may be related.
no subgift for me until i can do it anonymously again
What others have said. I have also received an email that it is indeed an experiment on purchasing flow.
1) No experiment needed cause i like to retain my anonymity whilst gifting
2) Not everyone likes and wants to be on gifted leaderboards
3) Please do not implement this.
4) Take me out of this experiment!
What caitastrofee said.
Maybe I don't gift that much, but I like to do it anonymously.
Also I don't like having to choose specific users, if I don't know them already or there aren't any online without a sub.
No option to do so to random users = no gifts from me = I save money.
I'll add that when I asked for confirmation that this was indeed an intended change and not a bug, and if giving feedback here was necessary, I got the following answer:
"If possible we would like you to provide feedback through the uservoice forum. However, it is not necessary. When the experiment ends, it should be back to normal but if the experiment ends up successful it could most likely be released to the rest of the users in the soon future."
Let's hope not.
I just checked my mails and got the same mail from twitch (like others already said) talking about an experiment and I can give feedback here (with a link to this page). So here's my feedback.
I like doing anonymously subgifts, even t2 and t3, and I can't do that anymore,... I can't gift t2 or t3 subbombs, I have to do them 1 by 1, which (and I can't say it nicer) sucks.
Pro for me: I save money
Con for me: I can't support my fav streamers as much as I want to.
Con for twitch: they get less money from me.
Opinion: Please change it back, if you want my money.
It's happened to me, too. When I complained, I got a response that suggests that this is some kind of experiment. I don't like it and hope they take me out of it!
Yeah it shows up if you are logged out but disappears after you log in.
I am also experiencing this issue as described by the comments in that thread.
