  1. 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 :)

  2. 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…

  3. As a Twitch streamer, I believe these can be improved to make bits a more fun and rewarding options for viewers:

    1. Up to 5 Animated emotes as an option for bit emote rewards that streamers can put in any slot.
    2. Allow streamers to give their bot access to using bit emotes. Currently, partnered streamers can give permanent tier 3 subs to bots, but this doesn't give the bot access to bit emotes.
    3. Currently, bit badges go up to 5 million. It should go higher.
    4. Expand the current channel points system to include redemptions with bits

    I think these improvements would…

  6. Twitch removed the option to watch ads for bits and I want it back.

    Being able to send free earned bits had been an amazing opportunity for those who can not afford it but still want to support their favorite channels.

    Taking away that feature for Multiplayer Ads is a huge downgrade, it does not allow each individual to have a freedom of choice with the earned bits as it used to be.

    Please bring back Ads for Bits.

  7. My idea to stop fraudulent bits and their impact on streamers is twofold: 1) Create a system or process that listens and supports streamers impacted by the complete removal of cheering for channels triggered by fraudulent bit donations. 2) Emphasize assessing security behind the bit donating process/software rather than punishing streamers who have received these bits from users taking advantage of this obviously weak security flaw.

    Fraudulent bits are obviously a large problem for Twitch as a business; however, more importantly, these faux donations are a larger problem for streamers: the financial backbone and foundation of Twitch.

    Currently, Twitch has…

  9. Viewers should decide where do bits go.

    I mean, a viewer should be able to choose whether they want their bit to go to the streamer or to the mods. This would give any sort of revenue to mods, who work freely.

  10. Once subscribed to a channel, a user will get access to the normal unlocked things but also access to a new tab next to "Gift Subs" called "Gift Bits." Gifting bits directly through a channel the viewer is subbed to will provide a discount. For example we'll say $1 = 100 bits. One option would be $1 = 110 bits if subbed...or, you could implement it as .90C = 100 bits.

    You could scale bigger discounts based on longevity (consecutive months subbed) or through level of subscription (Tier 1, T2, T3.)

    I do not have financial information on twitch but…

  11. Bit Magic is like the Chat Effects or Stream Effects (a.k.a. Mixer's Ember Effects).

    I found a way to do the chat with animations the similar way. It just needs implementation from the Developers.

  14. 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…

  16. Have a week or weekend that all bits are doubled or on sale. Maybe for Thanksgiving or Black Friday, or even Christmas. I know this would help everyone involved that the bits are used for.

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. As in other applications and games, because not deploying a global ranking system on the platform, that way the platform will profit, there will be an award for the top ranks and the platform can bring more users and streamers to the platform, the rank will encourage people to donate and if the prizes are good, it will be even better.

  20. 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.
