  1. How about @Twitch adds 5 more levels to hype trains. The more support a hype train gets, the more boosted a channel gets as a reward. Use boosting as an incentive to support a channels hype train (On top of the already exclusive emotes already gained). That way viewers are supporting creators, creators are making money, and Twitch makes more money via higher tiered hype trains. Everyone’s happy. #bladesideas

  2. The paid boosting feature is unethical and engineers around the problem that the current algorithm serves content in a way that is both obfuscated from participants yet is clearly biased towards extremely large partnered streamers and/or divisive content.

    Instead deliver content that appeals to individual viewers based on their viewing habits and adjust the front page and the algorithm:
    - Partnered Streamers Recommended for you x3
    - Affiliate Streamers Recommended for you x3
    - New for you x6 (2 partner, 2 affiliate, 2 any) streams of varying size and varying content type

    similarly for the search and category views of…

  3. Baiting Twitch users to pay money on behalf of their favorite streamers to boost discoverability is a bad idea and an unethical idea. It only unfairly furthers an existing advantage over other channels by exploiting community members’ good faith willingness to pay to support the streamer, and it does not make up for any deeper existing discoverability and usability failings. There is a consensus on social media that users understand this is a detriment to Twitch overall. If it doesn’t work as intended, they are wasting their money. But if it does work as intended, it greatly compromises the integrity…

  4. I noticed on twitter / the live stream about changes to twitch. There is some kind of thing where you can pay for more exposure? Not only is this inherently greedy, it's classist about up and coming streamers who are up and coming, buring them further into obscurity. You guys taking all the money ontop of that for this service is disgusting. Fix your algorithm instead of trying to line your pockets. Fix the hate raids on streamers of color. Actually implement something of meaning so that streamers can feel safe and not stressed about bots who spam slurs and…

  5. What about add a posibility for viewers to tip each other?
    Like send about 10 points for a message, that was in a chat.
    Also you can add an icon near the message with number of tips.
    To avoid abuse moderator would be able to cancel tips.

  6. In my opinion I feel that this is a massive step in the right direction for people to get noticed more , the one thing that would benefit the user experience in my opinion is being able to pause the boost.

    the reason i say this is because the user only gets 2 days to complete it.
    But if you receive the chance for the boost and your next day is usually a day off stream its hard to complete in one stream and therefore you are unable to benefit .

    This would give the user more control over how…

  8. whether or not, we all know boosting can help, but, to what degree? If boosting is a mainstay feature, why not make it more noticeable. Increase its use so more people can see smaller creator streams. If it requires more channel points to boost, to get the results, so be it. However, having the stream boost does little to nothing in terms of discovering new streamers on the platform.

    The boost feature should be just that. It should WANT new people to discover new streams, even if it may not be what they initially wanted.

    for example: if a channel…

  9. bonjour twitch, je voudrais proposer mon idée concernant la visibilité sur twitch. je me disais que s'il était possible de créer des points pas pour les chaines comme il existe déjà mais plutôt des points de compte, et avec des niveaux, auxquels on pourrait gagner de L'XP en découvrant de nouveau streamer, ou aussi dépensé ses points personnels dans des accessoires personnels ou des utilités en interaction avec les streamers

  10. So far I've experienced a huge discrepancy between number of viewers and points required to boost a stream. Smaller streamers regularly get 30k+ requirements, while slightly bigger streamers get 20k- requirements.
    A better correlation between viewer numbers and point requirements would be nice.

  11. When the boost this stream happens everyone raised 25k Channel points in under an hour, so if every time the goal is completed on a stream make the next time for 50k and the stream is shown to 5.6k people!

  12. Evidently in trying to collect data on the optimal way to implement the Boost feature, there's a group of streamers that are getting the boosts and others that are not. This makes sense but to reduce bias, it may be needed to have a second part data collection where the group that did not get any boosts get the boosts instead, and compare the results from the two parts. This can help identify any biases, if any, and will be more fair (and thus reduce dissatisfaction of smaller streamers that we're seeing).

  13. One thing bothers me about the Boost: people are suggested to me that I can't understand because I don't speak their language. It would be nice if these promotions were more specialized.

    For example, if someone often watches German & English streamers, that they are suggested to him.

    What should I do with a streamer if I can't understand him?

    Also, by being "Promoted" you don't see the viewership & you can't mark the person as "not interested" like you can with normal streams.

  14. Instead of asking our viewers to choose between fun and promoting the stream, make the boost passive and based on ANY points spent during a stream.

    As it stands, the system is creating a conflict of interest - particularly for channels that are solely powered on Channel Points.

  15. If you advertise my channel on the main page, means what? There will be people interested playing Metin2? Just an example. The mixer idea was very good, a special channel in each category, hosting randomly streamers playing the game in the last 3 squads left (Fortnite/Apex Legends) In this way, the small streamers get advertise to the right type of viewers which are actually interested on that type of content. Just an idea .....

  17. The boost this stream should be based off streaming hours instead of 2 days. For example, I got the "boost this stream" challenge the other day, but I was ill and had to cancel my stream the day after, then the day after that is my off day.

    It will now be missed because we were just short on the day it came in as it came in at the end of my stream. Instead of it being 2 days. Have it be the next x amount of hours streamed. This gives people the chance to hit the goal if…

  18. Let all channels ask their viewers to Boost This Stream. Except perhaps the channels who don't need boosting but are already doing fine for viewership.

  19. It would be more easier if big streamers and partners did receive a bonus for hosting and raid and promote smaller channels.
    Twitch is going to have a massive issue soon.
    After the pike of growth and quarantine demanding at some point in 2 years from 2021 (or less). Twitch will get boring because the only people who get to survive doing this are the big streamers massively caputing viewers for what?
    Plain same show, just shouting and screaming and doing non-sense. Ceelebreties with teenager actitud. This will work as long as viewers always remain teenagers ?

    If big streamers…

  20. Hey guys, I had my 3rd boost on Twitch. Our community completed the goal and the boost started not too long after, but it lasted a lot longer this time which is awesome! Now, I've been doing some research on how people will see the channel. My community tried looking for me in "The channels we think you'll like" section and I wasn't there. I was only visible when community members either logged out or used incognito mode. I'm not sure if this is intentional or not. I think most people are logged in, if they have an account, when…
