  1. 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…

  2. I'd suggest a tool so mods could accept or deny a bit message.

    It happens that your streamer wants to roleplay but the chat is doing metagaming, right? Well, I used to think that sub mode or emote mode could've solved it, but there is always that enlightned user who sends bits and messes it up.

    This case is the softiest. You also have hateful donos or spam that banning is not enough because if text-to-speech is enabled, the streamer ends up knowing.

    At first my idea was to put all bits messages in automod queue so mods read them,…

  3. Keep Bits.
    That's it. That's the Post.
    Seeing this new Cheering Feature come back has me extremely worried they will get rid of them alongside all of their amazing features such as, but not limited to:
    - Bit Emotes
    - Bit Badges
    - Custom Alerts
    - Custom Amounts to Cheer
    - Integration with other Channel bots (f.e. StreamElements Channel Points)

    Bits has been a core feature and source of income for me as a streamer, but also impacts my viewer experience heavily. Bit Alerts / Badges and Emotes are great motivators for people to support the Streamer.

    I really wish…

  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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  13. First of all, I would like to state that I am only posting this here because I couldn't find any other media to convey my feedback to Twitch about the matter. This page looks more like an "ideas" page than a feedback page, but as there aren't any feedback media, I will write about it here. (The ticket page auto-directs users here when the option "feedback" is selected)

    After the recent Twitch data leak, some users have noticed unusual bits activity in some small streamers' data in the Turkish community. After a short while, more data were discovered and a…

  15. 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…

  16. Why were bits removed from poll usage?!?

    I use polls for viewer watch party. The polls are for what genre and movies will be played at the time of the watch party. I allow extra votes to be cast using bits. I choose bits because it deters trolling. I choose 10 bits per upvote but depending on the other types of polls the amount can go up or down.

    I can not use channel points because some of my viewers have over 300k and could potentially spam. Voting for something that is not necessarily an mutually beneficial outcome for all…

  17. Giving content creators bits to pass out in channel like channel points would help build hype trains. When viewers see bits used, they then use bits also. Same for stickers etc. Monkey see monkey do. Allowing creators to give away bits that don't net any real value will allow viewers to feel involved, spend those bits and then buy real bits to spend. It would get others lurking to spend bits also. Creating more revenue for twitch and content creators. It's just like if you have 50 viewers, 50 more will show up to see what's happening. It's human nature.…

  18. I think that the bits of Twitch's own currency should remain and that the revenue should only be taken by Twitch, so that the streamers can keep the subscriptions as a source of income for themselves. Since taxes in Germany or England are very high, it is difficult to be able to get anything from them. At least for small streamers who have an affiliate but don't earn more than $ 1000 to say they live off it. The Twitch fixes on a source of income and says that Twitch gets and the rest of the little streamers. And that…

  19. Don't get rid of bits, that's all. There's so many things that streamers use bits for, from sound alerts to the twitch integrated throwing system (****) and so much more. Don't replace bits with this cheering system, it looks terrible.

  20. I really like having the "single bit cheered" badge even though I've cheered more. But if I cheer and end up as one of the top three for the week, or gift a sub and end up in the top three, or just... of its own accord, it changes it away from the one bit badge. Your choices should be your default.
