Allow 'twitch teams' to be created and joined by twitch affiliates
Disagree: There are already piles of teams that do very little in the way of community building. Getting to affiliate requires stats that indicate a streamer is just getting into Twitch streaming and has done only minor networking. Partner status, though terribly subjective in its opaque application approval at least has stats requirements that show a deeper willingness to 'play the game' and network with viewers, streamers, and build communities.
I like this idea. I am currently a member of two stream teams created by absent partners - literally absent, like they do not stream anymore, and run completely by the affiliate streamers they gave the teams to. There are a bunch of affiliates currently that are friends of Twitch Partners that were given one of the two teams a partner gets. I say make it official so all affiliates have this ability. If necessary limit the size, but even so it is a good idea.
We are an online radio, constituted as a non-profit organisation in promotion and diffusion of electronic music in all its ambits and we would like to have a community so that our DJs who broadcast are known.
Me interesa mucho esa idea, con quien me sumo?
Why is this still not a thing!
As of now only Twitch Partners are able to create their own Twitch Teams, which is unfair on Affiliates who may also want to set up communities of Streamers built into Twitch itself. Please consider this idea as it will encourage more Streamers to become active in communities they are able to set up and join themselves and twitch as a whole, thank you :)
Myself and a small group of mostly affiliate streamers have come together to run a small team dedicated to helping out with support and advice to new streamers and those looking to get into the world of streaming within our gaming categories.
Whilst I can perhaps appreciate why only Partners are able to set up Teams in Twitch , I feel this is doing a disservice to affiliates who can and do put in as much time and dedication to their streaming and may perhaps benefit from visibly becoming part of a team via Twitch, as I have seen how this helps Partners who have done the same.
So, my suggestion is to open Team setup to those who are also affiliated with Twitch, as whilst they are just starting out on their streaming journey, they have clearly already shown a commitment to developing their content via this platform.
My idea got combined into this one today. Does that mean it going to be worked on?

Ich finde das Affiliates auch die Chance haben sollten mindestens ein eigenes Team erstellen zu dürfen! Gleiches Recht für ALLE!
I agree, it would be very nice to have access to a stream team in a small community without a partner in it.
Maybe limit the creation to a minimum amount of affiliates who want to join?
Thanks a lot :)
Let affiliates create a stream team to help build a community with other small streamers to help build each other's channels.
Anyone that is at least a affiliate should be able to create a Twitch Team to expand their community or team they have formed. I wanted to create a Twitch team for my esports team but I couldn't since I am not partner.
There need to be a option for small streamers to make a team. Me and a few of my friends want to make a stream team but cant because its for partners onlt to make the team. One of use is affiliate and he should be able to make a team.
I support this idea, but it doesn't let me vote. Hope this idea gets approve soon.
I completely agree with this idea. Even if it means teams created by affiliates have a maximum limit as per the number of people who can join (I suggest up to 12). I agree having a charter that al members agree to but I think a lot of that should be down to the team owners. I also don't think it's a bad thing there being a lot of teams, the more the merrier IMO. We already have teams created that are just basically formalised follow-for-follow groups so it's not like the current system protects against the lack of team mentality.
This will just oversaturate the team amounts, i would say no to this tbh. it would do more harm than good.
The team allows groups of affiliates to support each other and help work towards the goals of the partnership. I am in favor of allowing teams to affiliates however once that gate is opened it will appear that everyone will want their own team and will not join in coalition to support each other as the terminology "Team" would imply.
Instead, what if we had a team system for affiliates that can get a group of people together that commit to joining a charter and submitting that as an application, much like a Guild creation from World of Warcraft. You describe the team name and information, then send that as an email to lets say 5 affiliated members that also commit to joining that team, and then once it is signed or completed that is sent to review for Twitch. Then all members can be vetted for Twitch TOS standings and so on and if all members are in good standings and there is no issues with the team information or description let them set one up. Then set a minimum 30 days or so requirement to be commited to that team just like they do with changing your stream name. This will reduce the influx of teams, promote that mentality, and hopefully ensure people will stay committed to these teams so they can use it to grow together.
It feels like Twitch is only after Affiliates Income of Dollars / Euros by subs, and bits.
As it is now, the Streamer will get 50% and Twitch 50%.
Streamer still has to pay Tax (VAT) in its country.
That's why we don't get a team option, we are not good enough for Twitch as Affiliates. Then partners. But our money through our hard-working Affiliates streamers is welcome. for the rest we have to keep our mouths shut, as this feels to many Affiliates streamers as if we are nothing.
I am vote for you cheers mate
Partners have enough advantages than Affiliates streamers.
- They have deals with Bedrijfven partners
- invite events discounts and backstage
- and more.
so i was reading redit about how some teams are actually getting twitch teams made with twitch support with out being partnered. i was wondering if there is any chance twitch affiliates will evently get the option to make their own teams me and 16 others was on a team none of us are partnered and would love to be able to have a team of our own that welcomes everyone like a family and are there for one another to show not all twitch teams treat ppl the way a lot of them do. and if some of the affiliates r getting a twitch team made with some of twitch support help would like the same if its possible at all please and thank you
If The starter / owner of the team can get 30 of his affiliated team members To sign the petition it gets approved or at least reviewed!
