    Twitch resubs have the ability to announce their sub anniversaries with custom messages, however those who are on multiple month streaks that have been gifted subscriptions don't have the ability to do this. It'd be nice to be able to do this.

  2. Twitch streamers sometimes have giveaways. And whats not better to give away than give out Turbo benefits (you would see the value of this if there was added additional 5-10 emoticons to Turbo features).

    Basically streamer could buy 1 month of Turbo and give it it out to someone in the twitch stream.

  3. Streamers are able to gift subs at a discounted rate to their own channel while live (must be multiple subs being purchased, 5+, etc.)

  4. 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…

  5. When I get a notification of a gifted sub in a channel I was maybe not in at the time I always make sure to whisper the person (if possible) to say "Thank You" directly for their generosity... it would be cool if there was some easier link or form to say thanks to people who gift you a sub.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Allow people who have an available Twitch Prime Sub, to gift that sub to someone else, to a channel of the gifters choice.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Anonymous gifts subs have been used to troll creators often through sexual harassment by gifting subs to inappropriate names.

    Creators should have the ability to opt-out of the ability for people to gift subs anonymously if Twitch isn't able to identify the accounts with inappropriate names during the account creation process.

    Twitch has a responsibility to protect not only viewers but creators.

  13. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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!

  20. 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!
