Founder Badge to apply to gifted subs.
When you get gifted a sub, you can't subscribe by yourself that month, so you lose the chance to get the Founder Badge. So instead, the badge should apply to all types of subscribing.
For example you find a new streamer, you want to sub to it but someone gifts you a sub before having the chance to do it. Later, they get over 10 subscribers so you lose the chance to have the founder badge (even though you were one of the first 10).

BECAUSE U TOLE ME TO!!!
I agree with TMGK. At the very least, continuing a gift sub should trigger founder if a gift sub by itself doesn't. I did a community gift sub bomb in a new affiliates channel to celebrate and a couple people hadn't arrived yet and were disappointed that they couldn't get the founder badge when they had intended to sub themselves. Continuing the gift sub and having that count as a founder would solve that scenario.
+1 A couple of good suggestions would be;
1. A new algorithm that detects when a gifted sub continues their gift subscription with a prime or paid sub to auto grant them founders, if the gifted sub was among the first 10 subscribers.
2. Increase the founder capacity to accommodate the sub gifted, who were among the first 10, while still having the original 10 subscribers a founder.
3. Perhaps founder status could be granted to the first consecutive 3 month subscribers? This would give enough time for sub-gifties to still get founders even if they were already gifted a sub, provided they were among the first 10 subscribers.
