  1. I think streamers should be making more for ads that are run. 3.50 isn’t enough for 1,000 views most ppl are just starting out and it’s not fair to them to not even get 1000 views.

  2. Add an alert to the alert system streamers can configure that will kick off a use-defined period of time before a scheduled ad break begins. That way everyone knows without doubt that a break is about to happen. The streamer can pause or at least be aware that the ads are happening and people are missing content, and the experience will improve for everyone. Streamers who don't want the alerts could simply not use them, of course.

  3. There's a drop down in the Ads Manager to send a notification a certain number of minutes before a scheduled ad is about to play. It defaults to OFF.

    However, setting this to something other than OFF apparently does not work, because no notification appears either for the viewer or the streamer.

  5. I would like to not run ads at all. I get that streamers get revenue, but its so small to me, that it doesn't really matter. I, like a few people I've interacted with, directly or indirectly, feel like the random roll of ads (sometimes a 3 minute ad will roll) deters new viewers from sticking around longer to find if they like the streamer. There are some people who just aren't "on" for the entire stream and it takes a good 2 minutes for an interesting topic to come up, but when you already say through ads, you decide…

  6. Can we please have a grace period of at least a few minutes before automated ads run again after the stream crashes? It is highly annoying when the scheduled ad sequence starts from scratch and messes up the whole timing of breaks, not to mention how annoying it is for non-subbed viewers.

  7. Steamers should be able to toggle ads on their streams instead of being forced to have ads that they might not want or even profit from

  8. all ads sponsor with Twitch could be selective for streamers to choose and play them manually or at a time triggered. Before went on live, streamer should be able to choose and for example go to the home page top left category and select the kind of ads they want to play with. (viewers could also go to see what sponsor ads are supporting with the platform)
    Or
    ads company could create new form of ads to immerse into streamer's screen such as water mark & transparency logo flowing in a certain amount of time.

  9. voy a ser sincero, he dado mas dinero a twitch q a mi propia familia, no me importa, no es el tema pero la publicidad es tan molesta que me frustran. odio su pagina porque no saben filtrar eso, meten tanta publicidad que esto se va a pudrir, podrian parar de molestar con eso a gente que ha dado mil dolares o mas, no existe un filtro, no veré otras personas en twitch, no esperare 1 minuto o dos cada 5 minutos. el dinero los transformo tanto que será lo mismo que los matará, dejen de llenarme las pelotas con…

  10. We could have either an API that sends a signal for when an ad is about to be played or an option on the Stream Manager that plays something when an ad is about to play.

    So at least the streamer is aware of when to pause the game to do a bathroom break or not go in an critical part and make the viewers lose it because of an ad.

    That would help some of us with selective focus and don't have 2 monitors to keep track of the ads in a full screen game.

  11. So not sure if you've seen movies or shows on something like Crackle, but on their player you see a Yellow marker when an ad is coming. I think an integrated Twitch Overlay that coincide with Ads Manager would be beneficial for the viewer/community.

  13. i would love to see an option to set ads to the exact same time every hour. for example: every hour at X:45 there will be 120 seconds for ads, so it doesnt matter when i start or end my stream - the ads will always show up at the same time. if i start streaming at 8PM and end my stream at 11PM there will be ads at 8:45-8:47 and again 9:45-9:47 and once more at 10:45-10:47. it would be awesome if you can add this option to the ad manager, i would love to place my ad breaks…

  14. For me, the whole thing about the Ads Manager is being a fallback mechanism to ensure the preroll ads don't get turned on. As it is right now... it simply does not do that.

    There's no fix for snoozing (not directly), but running a manual ad should not count against an ad that's scheduled after pre protection expires.

    Really, though, the correct fix is to give us a programmable interface. My bot should be able to read the current settings, and modify it to whatever's necessary...

    a. I want to know when the next ad is scheduled.
    b. I want

  15. Every streamer on twitch who isnt a Partner with the new revenue share, is complaining about the increase in ads lately. All of our conversations get interrupted.
    If we run ads the prerolls stop for a bit but then the viewer gets a 6 part preroll ad after the cooldown. This is pushing people off twitch because no one can subscribe to everyones channel. On top of that we are losing some of our sub revenue right? In exchange for maybe 5 bucks of ads a month?

    Why cant we have ads that dont interfere with the entire screen or…

  16. Add manager is not working correctly. I have been streaming after setting it up and the ad revenue has not increased and the buttons for ads no longer work on the side panel. Additionally, it says ads have been run but watching the stream from another device or through team page or incognito shows no ad running at the allotted time frame in the ad manger settings.

  17. One might think a banner that only slightly shrinks the screen would seem a less intrusive way of delivering ads than full-screen ads, but I'm finding them more annoying. Their frequency combined with their commonly using a white background creates a huge contrast between the often-darker backgrounds of the stream. I.e., they're an eyesore.

    I suggest advertisers be required to also provide a "dark mode" version of their banner. Let viewers toggle their preferred mode in account settings and additionally provide a checkbox to toggle the mode whenever a banner ad is displayed.

  18. Hello! This is great! Glad you guys are able to offer this to streamers! So, some ideas I have or feedback to say is that there are streamers like myself that have streamed for 200+ hours! We love gaming, love our community so we will stream for long periods of time. So 40 hours I feel is kinda low. I know this is just a starting point, but i feel that if you gave more higher options people would do it! Also if you could include on the dashboard if we need to require a certain amount of concurrent viewers…
