  1. 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…

  2. I would love to see a feature where viewers can Battle with Bits! basically it could be a bit brawl where multiple people go in and more than 1 get the emote or 1v1 bit battle. Basically battling with 1 bit and whoever stops or does not respond the other person received the Channel Specific Emote or Twitch Specific Emote.

    A new challenger can then challenge the Bit Battle Winner in order to then gain that Channel Specific Emote. This would increase chances of Hype Trains and be fun to see viewers battling for that emote. I believe it would…

  3. Just add an option that we can use to enable or disable the bits on our channel. It's actually a big mess when someone donates fake/fraud bits to our channels. With big excuses, we are getting ......

  5. 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.

  7. There are games within certain niches (e.g. the RPG Maker horror community) with more restrictive licenses on earning money from broadcasts of them than many other games. I'd like the ability to disable and re-enable bits (either whenever the streamer feels or on a per-stream basis) to allow for streaming these games without running the risk of unintentionally breaking their content guidelines by receiving a donation that I have no control over.

    YouTube's streaming service offers the ability to freely disable their Super Chats and Super Stickers monetisation, making accidentally breaking usage guidelines in this way much less likely. Currently…

  8. The idea is that the streamer can setup a challenge, like winning the next game / match or whatever the like. Then people can put in bits, which in case he fulfills this challenge he gest the bits and not if he doesnt. The streamer would need to edit / click manually if he did or not succeded the challenge.

  9. 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.

  10. As the title states, allow channels to add redemptions alongside channel point redemptions and rewards that costs bits instead. Allows for ways to make "premium" rewards and redemptions that also support the streamer.

  11. As far as I know there is no way to determine whether a channel has bits rewards emotes (unique and permanent emotes unlocked by spending 1K bits, 5K bits, 10K bits, etc. in that channel) unless the owner or someone with the emote uses it in chat. It apparently can't be looked up in the bits menu for the channel or anywhere else.

    I'm not referring to cheer emotes, or to custom bit badges for certain levels that appear next to your username when in that channel, but to permanent emotes that can be used anywhere on Twitch, even if…

  12. In "Bits Acceptable Use Policy / Now the Don’ts that constitute violations of this policy:" we can see that it is included in don*ts "graphic design services". I think this is totally wrong. Why I am thinking that? 1st you (Twitch) loosing a large amount of money because of that and there is nothing wrong with offering designer services in exchange for bits. You like it or not, bits are some kind of currency and streamers using it for all kind of things on their live streams. If you really want to push this "Now the Don’ts that constitute violations…

  13. I would like to have possibility to setup Custom Rewards to be used with bits not just with channel points. Some rewards for channel points & bits and some only for bits. For some I can give possibility to be "purchased" with 1000 channel points or with 100 bits and some just for 500 bits. Price for that need to be up to streamer.

  14. Je ne savais pas où insérer cette idée mais je pensais qu'il serait judicieux d'ajouter un programme de fidélité permettant de récompenser les personnes qui soutiennent régulièrement.

    Ainsi, si un téléspectateur à dépensé une certaine somme d'argent durant le mois, il pourrait se voir attribuer une récompense pour sa fidélité.

    Par exemple différents seuils seraient mis en place pour gagner des récompenses :

    Pour 50 € dépensés sur Twitch par mois, 400 bits seraient offerts

    Pour 75 € dépensés sur Twitch par mois, 550 bits seraient offerts

    Pour 100 € dépensés ou + sur Twitch par mois, 800 bits seraient…

  17. 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…

  20. Many users like to work towards a badge goal when gifting subs and bits. Total subs gifted in a channel is already tracked each time someone gifts a sub, which allows the user to understand how close they are to the next sub badge (i.e. "PersonA has gifted a sub to PersonB. PersonA has gifted a total of 975 subs in the channel" -> now they know if they gift 25 more subs, they will get the 1K subs badge). I'm proposing something similar for bits, either publicly or locally so that the user can see their total bits contributed…
