  2. Today (Oct 24, 2022) Anon cheering seems to have been disabled for some reason. Please do not remove the ability to cheer Anonymously.

    Some of us like to donate bits and don't want to be "recognized" for it. Removing the ability to cheer anonymously will just make us not cheer at all.

    If this was somehow something streamers were asking for, then make it a per-stream setting a streamer can toggle (but default ON).

    Twitch responded

    Hey all! Thanks for this thread. We recently deprecated anonymous Cheering after we discovered it was being abused. While we understand some viewers prefer not being recognized for Cheering, we made this change to ensure a safer experience for those who were negatively impacted.

    We’ve also heard your concerns on what this means for the future of Bits. This deprecation is not related to any plans to limit Cheering with Bits on Twitch, and is solely focused on providing a safer experience for our community.

  3. Bits are the MOST beneficial form of income for streamers on Twitch. The donor pays the twitch fee when purchasing the bits, so the streamer gets the full amount, which is what the donor expects. If someone donates 100 bits the streamer gets $1.00. With Super Cheer if someone donates $1.00 the fee is coming out of that amount and the streamer only gets $0.76. If Twitch is looking to replace bits with Super Cheer, that is only going to hurt streamers livelihoods and the relationship between streamers and Twitch. We want to be able to stream on Twitch knowing…

  4. A Cheermote that is only unlocked on a streamer's birthday that gives extra bits on top of a cheer (10-25% more). It would incentivize people to purchase more bits for a streamer's birthday and give the streamer a nice birthday gift!

  5. I did not want to be part of the Twitch Cheering Experiment. I am a small streamer and rely heavily on my stream alerts gimmicks to fund raise. The Cheering Experiment has massively reduced my income and the platform takes a larger cut and it doesn't even do anything cool when someone donates.

    Twitch sent a stealthy email on the 20th and only gave us til the 24th to opt out but I only found out yesterday. I can safely say I don't want to be part of the experiment and would like to opt out immediately. There should be…

  6. With Subs, Subgifts and Donates it is possible to farm points on different platforms (Stream Elements, Streamlabs etc.). The only thing whats missing are the transfer of bits to points. ( example: some one cheers 1,000 bits and earn 1,000 points in the ANKH bot; currently you can farm points with subs and donates). The policies of twitch of 2018 denied this kind of use. Its time to end this and give us the points for bit cheers :)

  7. Currently, cheermotes are available even for blocked users who unlocked the emote before they got blocked.

    This, however, also allows for harrassment outside of the channel of the stream who blocked them. They can go to channels of streamers that the streamer is acquainted or friends with, and continue to harass simply by intentionally using their cheermotes.

    I don't think this is something a streamer should have to deal with, and therefore I think that while a user is blocked by a streamer, they should also not be able to use the cheermotes, just like they're not able to subscribe…

  10. Family-friendly streamers could get a non-family-friendly emote splattered all over their screen. We need this feature especially if there is no way to disable the feature.

  12. For a limited time, within a select number of channels, we’re testing a different way to Cheer through direct purchase Cheering.
    Direct purchase Cheering allows you to unlock a fun community benefit through monetary payment, rather than through Bits. This experiment is only available to select creators and you must be located in the U.S. to participate. If you have any further questions please refer to our help article (https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/cheering-experiment-2022?language=en_US)
    We look forward to hearing your feedback on this!

  13. As a part of our efforts to continually improve our products and creators and viewers build communities together, we are testing several possible updates to the Cheering experience. As a part of this effort, we are testing one of three prototype Cheering updates to a small number of hand-selected channels in order to observe how communities respond and interact with the feature. These three updates are:

    • Cheer with Screenshot: viewers can add a creator-selected image to their Cheer to increase the expressiveness of their Cheer in chat.
    • Cheer Message Size: viewers can choose how large their Cheer message will appear…

  15. I would like to see if we can turn off or on the new power-ups on screen celebrations button...I show videos and myself along with my viewers like that I have no emotes going across the screen and actually see the videos.

  16. Space is precious on the Twitch desktop browser. The constant moving has tricked me into hitting the Power-UPS instead of channel points. Leave the channel points area alone. Put the Power-ups in with BITS not channel points.

  17. Would be nice if there was a setting akin to the setting for sub gifting to no longer show up on the leaderboard. Would probably not be necessary to take away the cheer badges (since you can just choose what badge you want to use).

    I know a lot of streamers prefer knowing where love and support came from so they have a slight dislike towards anonymous bits/gifts. But I personally prefer not showing up on the leaderboards when it comes to cheering bits/gifting subs, so I love the setting where you can hide from them for subs, would just…

  18. In most channels that have cheering, I sometimes see people spamming with only 1 bit. I find it pretty annoying, and I'm sure people do as well, especially when the chat is in sub mode.

  20. Power-ups need some form of alert for the streamer. I had viewers using this last night in my stream and I didn't even know what was going on or that it was occurring.

    I happened to have my stream open on another monitor and saw emotes all over and didn't know how that happened. Then another person used a thing to enlarge an emote. Again, no notification and it showed normal to me and many in chat.

    I usually have Firebot up to monitor chat while I stream. The messages sent with the power-up don't even show in there so…
