  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. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. So I do think this new bits thing has some promise, I totally support it, but I think a lot of people are going to complain and be upset with the positioning in the user interface. It makes people who cant afford bits feel bad and negative about constantly seeing a Zero next to the bit icon under the chat.

    My idea: We already have the cheer icon next to chat, so please, give us an option to remove the bits counter that shows 100% of the time next to channel points, OR keep the bit counter inside of the…

  6. 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.

  7. Bits used for the new Power Ups don't currently progress existing Cheer badges, but it would be great if they did count, since it's still using bits on the streamers channel.

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  12. There are myriad problems with this feature.

    1: Cannot be turned off if the streamer does not want it.
    2: Cannot restrict the use of unwanted stamps
    3: Streamers are not aware of it in the first place

    1
    This can be worked around once by setting the bits limit to 10,000 points, but it is not perfect.
    There is no other way but to deactivate the affiliate if they do not want it completely.
    Therefore, we would like the feature turned on or off.

  13. Power-ups should have had this from day and it is remiss of Twitch not to have done this from the day it was implimented. POwer-ups need to be included in the Bits API. Without it games that include bit redemptions, counters and other viewer incentives no longer work properly, and viewers are confused why they do not.
    Needs to be fixed or removed asap.

  14. I really like the idea of a built in menu to offer bit redeems rather than having a menu posted via commands etc. We can use the same API access and interface as the channel point interface, and allow disabling certain power-ups. Also, with this, it would probably be best to have the menu be two buttons so it doesn't get too bloated.

    This would absolutely increase the income from bits, as people would be able to see exactly what they can get for their bits rather than having to find that information elsewhere. This is good for both viewers,…

    • Power-ups and Twitch Alerts/bots:
      Power-ups don't trigger cheer alerts and I can't find any way to indicate on-stream that bits have been used. As a streamer, I rely on audio queues to let me know someone has spent money on my channel so that I can thank them in a timely manner. This is basic functionality, I need a way to interact with this redemption that blends seamlessly with existing alerts and recognition for bits.

    • Power-ups & Channel Points
      Could power-ups be moved to a separate cheering menu from Channel Points? It was really confusing the first time I saw…

  16. Bring back ads for Bits. You morons got rid of it ages ago, and it was the best way to let all the poor financially limited people still participate in bits. Additionally, all these new celebrations with bits and on-screen garbage should be able to be opted out of if the streamer does not want your tacky force fed garbage to be a part of their stream -_-. You say this is for the streamer and yet you are forcing this upon us instead of it being an optional thing. All we can do is change the price and not…

  19. So I have about 10 people that come to my chat and have donated well over 5 million. If you can add 6-10 million would be super helpful. Some of them said they stopped donating because there is no new bit badges
