  1. After talking to Twitch Support and other Twitch viewers, it turns out I'm part of an experiment that hides the option to gift a custom amount of subs on the initial screen (you have to proceed to checkout to specify a custom amount). It also doesn't show how many subs you've gifted in the channel on the initial screen (you have to click 'Gift a specific viewer' first).
    The fact that an experienced user had to contact support because they thought you outright disabled the option to gift a custom amount should be proof the result of this change isn't…

  2. I sometimes see non-chatters or lurkers getting gifted subs. It would be neat if instead of gifted subs being random, they can be given out to normal or dedicated chatter, then go on to lurkers and random viewers. It makes more sense if gifted subs go to people who are more likely to watch the stream, use your emotes, etc. Thank you.

  3. If someone is giving out auto gift subs, assign it to supporters who deserve it the most. Base it on number of hours watched, past subscribers, bit givers, etc.

    The business idea for gift subs is for the recipient to possibly renew. Please don't reward them to viewers who are not engaged.

  4. If a user is gifted a sub they should get a $4.99 discount if they decide to upgrade their sub to a tier 2 or 3 sub.

  5. I would like to gift Turbo Subsription to my friends/users - the other day a friend wanted another user color but they didnt have the money so i thought it would have been cool to gift them Turbo so they could change their color.

    And i think it would be nice in general to be able to give something back to others on the platform without it being only a giftsub to a specific channel.

  6. If I want to gift someone 500 subs, I don't like having to do 5 transactions. It would be nice to have the maximum gifted sub amount removed or at least increased.

  7. Hi. I would like to be able to gift subs only to the current viewers.
    I don't want to gift subs to all the followers (to community) because I don't want to gift subs to users that are not active for years.

  8. Subscription badges should stay there forever and not disappear since bits already do that. It’s bad for the people who donate 500+ then they go in chat and boom the badge is gone but the kid who donated 5 bits still has his. People like taking breaks from donating and they feel like this concept of having to donate more to keep the badge feels forced and scumy which is one of the many reasons people don’t bother gifting. This has been going on for years now but I’m sure you guys would like making your platform better so this…

  10. Just like there's a "Gift Subs" Category (to random Twitch accounts), create an option to "Gift subs to Active Viewers" (at 5,10,15,20).

    Maybe it would be easier to create a separate Tab Category label it:
    "Active Viewer Gift Subs" with, 5 subs, 10 subs, 15, subs, 20 subs

    I personally would prefer my gift subs be given to the viewers that happen to visit or follow a Streamer I'm following or watching...!

    I'm aware your "gift sub" works on some algorithm, but you should strongly consider my suggestion! Viewers WILL love it!

  11. Personally, I feel insulted when I receive a gifted sub as I also find receiving charity insulting when I can afford it myself.

    The lack of a denial feature makes it seem Twitch doesn't allow people a legitimate chance to make a decision themselves.

    Please add an option to decline subs from channels you follow, but would choose to manually sub, only.

  12. Bit badges are kept forever in the channel they are earned, but gift sub badges will get removed once the last gift sub has expired. I don't understand the incentive to earn gift sub badges that we aren't allowed to keep, especially with higher amount gift sub badges becoming available.

  13. I've been monitoring gift-sub dispersal lately. I was just in a stream with 50 viewers and someone dropped a 10 gift-sub bomb. Only 2 users in the channel got a gift sub, the other 8 went to people who werent even in the channel. As usual I got passed over for a gift sub.

    I think you should re-think your gift-sub dispersal algorythms.

    Another time I was in a not so popular streamer's chat with 5 viewers, a 10 gift-sub bomb goes off and I get passed over. Seems Legit......

    People who are actually in the stream where the gift…

  14. Hey Twitch Support Team!

    I hope you're well! I was wondering - I love to give, and I typically like to try and find folks that have been following a channel for a long time, and reward them with a few months of a gifted subscription. Are there any plans to have an option to gift subscriptions based on a viewer's follow age or their channel points? I personally think this would be a wonderful option, rewarding those long time followers! Thanks for all that you do!

  16. I would like the ability to limit how many subscriptions a single user can gift over the course of a month. I'm specifically trying to avoid the scenario in which a small number of users gift the majority of subs and create some sort of "obligation" on the part of the streamer. The same could be done with bits. This would painlessly prevent this situation before it even starts.

  17. It’d be nice if the gift sub engine was a little more... thoughtful? Channel/community-centric? Basically, when you gift sub bomb a channel with (x) subs, the subs I’d like to see the gifts be given in this order:

    1. First, be given to the most active people in chat for that stream session.
    2. Next, subs are gifted to remaining viewers in the current live stream session.
    3. Last, if EVERYONE watching is already subbed, gifts are given to non-subbed followers of the channel based on their follow age.
    4. If at all possible (and I’m not sure it is), it’d be nice to…

  18. I like to lurk on Twitch, but I have an account so that I can follow streamers and know when they go live. The current problem is that I can only block receiving gift subscriptions on channels I don't follow. This means if I don't want to receive gift subscriptions I would have to unfollow all the streamers I am currently following, which would make having an account pointless. I do appreciate the subs I have been randomly gifted via community gift subs, but they won't bring me out of lurking, and they won't encourage me to spend my own…

  19. Please tell me the new gift sub badges redesign is a test and not permeant yet. They look horrible and sharp and see-through and don't fit the aesthetic of literally anything on the site.

    I suggest reverting/keeping the original ones as they are perfectly fine, look WAY better, and fit in nicely. I'm not sure why redesigning these perfectly fine badges was even thought about when there a many other much bigger problems that could be fixed.

  20. Me gustaria tener la opcion de enviar subscripciones de regalo a canales aleatorios dentro de una categoria, vease GTA5, puedes comprar subscripciones aleatorias a los viwers concretos de un canal concreto, pero no puedes decidir que no quieres apoyar a un creador especifico, si no que apoyar a la categoria que a ti te interesa mas ver, asi enviarias las subscripciones a los viwers o apoyo directo a los streamers que esten en esa categoria independientemente de si tu les sigues o los estas viendo o inlcuso sin conocerles, dado que para donar en un lugar concreto ya tenemos la…
