  1. I thought of a donation that allows the user to send a private message to his favorite streamer, the streamer being able to respond or not if he wants to.

  3. I noted on twitter the UI for the auto bits has no restriction on time (ie refill X amount of times per month). This could be exploited on a compromised account that set up the auto buying of bits, as the bits would be spent and then twitch would automatically buy more.

    Also people do get heated in a "bit war" and I could see this leading to issues where it it draws multiple times to keep the donation war going.

    Simple changes would include: 1) a way to restrict how often bits can auto refill and 2) A confirmation…

  6. Something new that "could" be added to bits is when any viewer redeems 1 or more loot with Twitch Prime on any affiliate or partner channel, that channel owner could automatically get 0.15% off bits per viewer who have redeemed 1 or more loot when on that channel. It would take 100 viewers redeeming loot to reach 15% off bits for that specific channel.

    The cap of the percentage off bits for the channel owner could be 5%-15%. Once a channel reaches the cap the channel owner could have one-to-two weeks to buy the bits with a percentage off, from…

  9. This would be similar to a Cash Back option through Amazon, where people can receive bits from purchases directly through Amazon. Would be a great way to get some extra bits to give to the streamers they love all while supporting Amazon.

  10. Currently, you must use paypal balance, even though it is through Amazon, to purchase bits, and are unallowed to put the funds already in your amazon account towards these purchases. I believe that it would be beneficial to allow using the amazon balance toward bit purchases so I can put my pre-existing balance toward twitch streamers.

  11. Enable bits to be used to purchase subscriptions for channels.

    Give discount on channel subscription cost, based on bits purchased or bits in stock.

    Would save twitch money on payment/card processing fees per subscription as money already with twitch.

    Would encourage more people to sub to channels to get good discount worth the % fees paid to get bits.

    Subscribing to XX channels based on % would give cover any % payed to get the bits, this would encourage use of bits, and give discounts to those that supported more channels with subscriptions, and more usage of bits.

    Would save…

  12. This option would allow streamers to bank uncashed out bits and use them to donate to other channels, if they want. For example, one of my viewers sends me 500 bits. Those bits are banked and I can use them when making donations in the future.

  13. I just purchased 1500 bits ($15 to streamer) for $19.95 -- a $4.95 markup. This made me think about the amount of bit donations vs. PayPal donations I've seen over the years, and the fees associated with PayPal are much more attractive.

    Bits however are very interactive and entertaining. The novelty of getting a bit badge and having your cheer posted at the top of the chat is likely a reason why people choose to pay the premium. That being said, for every person that buys bits, the other person donates on PayPal because its cheaper. If Twitch wants to…

  17. 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.

  19. Make it to where our bit cheering badge would keep track of our number of cheers we've done in a channel (i.e. 100, 1000, 5000, 100000), but we could pick our own color we wanted from a list. I'm currently at 75000 cheers with a green badge in a channel, and I would love to keep cheering, but dont want to lose my green badge that it comes with. :)
