Artist Badge & Emote Attribution
To better support artists and accredit their talents among the Twitch community, we’ve released two new features: Emote Attribution and the Artist Badge. Emote Attribution lets you credit the artists responsible for creating your emotes so they can feel the love wherever their emotes appear across Twitch. The Artist Badge lets you celebrate those who contributed artwork to your community with a special new chat badge.
You can get all the details on our Help page here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/artist-badge-attribution
We’re excited to share both of these features with the community, but they’re just the first steps to better connect creators and artists on Twitch. Your feedback will help us refine these products and better serve artists and the community as a whole!
Attributing an emote to myself shouldn't require me to then also approve it. I didn't realize I had to approve it and had one of my emotes without attribution for 5 months before I noticed it said pending
I think if the artist has the badge then they should automatically have access to use them. If an artist has to sub to use the emotes they created then they are basically losing money for something they already created.
Artist attribution and badges is a fantastic feature, but particularly now that animated emotes are a thing, some emotes may have more than one artist that worked on them - for example, an artist and an animator.
Allow us to either simply add more than one artist to each emote - or even better, also label the type of attribution with a few pre-set labels - "main artist," "animator," "collaborator," "idea," "inspiration," and similar.
It's unfortunate and unrepresentative to have to choose between two excellent artists to represent when art and animation were done by two separate people.
While I appreciate the Attribution, it feels very weird to have to be subbed to a channel in order to use MY art/emote that I created. Pay money to use my creation.
But since I'm not a streamer (and therefore not Affiliate), I cannot even upload emotes to my own channel.
One of my artists brought it up and I see a few other people have mentioned it as well, but it would be cool if the emote artists did have access to the emotes they made across Twitch without having to be subbed to our channels. Helps give exposure for both the artists and our channels with them using their created emotes in chat as they please.
Loving the new Artist Badge but why is it stuck with gift sub/bit badges etc as a choice? Surely appreciating and thanking a channel's artists warrants this badge being BEFORE sub badges, like VIPs and Moderators. We should be proud of our artists.
A lot of larger streamers, and sometimes even smaller ones, will likely have far more than just 5 artists contributing to their channel. The limit needs to be upped significantly, or at least have a way for broadcasters to acquire more similar to how additional VIP badge slots are given.
There isn't a way to remove an Artist badge from a user that deactivated their account. The Role Manager page doesn't show the user yet they still hold one of the 5 badge slots. Not sure if this would fix, but consider adding chat commands similar to /vip and /unvip in order to add and remove artist badges from users.
I have 5 artists and i'm a cam streamer, I can't imagine how vtubers must feel having to figure out which artists get the badge and which dont! Please increase the number of people who can have this badge!
Many streamer have alot of artists that contribute to their channel. Especially VTubers. While the artist badge is nice. The limited number is a bummer
For may streamers that have many art assets, such as Vtubers, having only 5 artist badges is nowhere near enough. Many streamers can have upwards or 15 or 20 people who have created or worked on various assets, models, etc. for the streamer. Can we please have an increase in the number of artist badges available to us as streamers. I'm not sure why this would need to be limited to 5. Thanks!
Correction to my previous comment.
I found how to do it.
<3 Thanks for making it possible!!
man kann nun den künstler als rolle verteilen... wenn man selber der künstler ist kann man sich die rolle allerdings bisher nicht zuteilen, das sollte man ändern.
Since Twitch added the Artist badge and added the feature to show appreciation to the artists that created emotes by clicking them to see them I would suggest to add a chat command similar to "/mods" and "/vips" to see what are the artists of an channel, if the roles are used.
The artist badge is great, but what if I am the artist? I would like to give myself the badge in my own channel considering I'm the artist who does all the art for my channel.
There should be something in the FAQ about Attribution describing what badges it takes place of, as well as any benefits that come with it. Does it replace the VIP badge spot? Does it come with any benefits like VIP does? Nothing like that is mentioned and I believe that is important to educate people about.
It can be useful, but it's not interesting that the chat is so crowded and everyone has their own badge. It is better to limit the number of each badge so that it does not lose its value.
I’ve seen someone else comment the same thing, but Artists should be able to use their creations for free. And as the other comment said, many streamers probably would agree to that as well. Which of course I do.
The new "Artist" badge is an amazing feature, can help provide more exposure for emote artists across the Twitch platform, but currently does not allow creators to give themselves the "Artist" role in their own channels. Every time a creator types in chat (to enter a bot command, post a link, etc) it would provide the creator an opportunity to highlight that they are also an emote artist to their own viewers.
I was really thrilled when twitch announced the artist badges. I am a artist myself and have some friends who are artists as well. The badges had good intentions but are, in my opinion, improvable.
1: Since Twitch now has animated emotes many streamer get their already existing emotes animated from other artists then the ones which drew them originally. Or even better, different arists work together as a team. Artist A draws the texures and Artist B animates it. Not all artists are good in any kind of art so sometimes we work together to achieve something great. BUT at the moment only one artist can get credit per emote. In my case some streamer decided to credit me, which in my opinion is unfair for the person who put so much time in illustrating the textures. That made me feel bad cause I know how hard it is as an artist and how much work goes into a great emote. On the other hand, seeing that some streamer decided against me also made me feel bad. It gives the impression that my part of the art, the animation, is not worth as much as the work of the illustrator. This creates unnecessary competition between artists. And I can only speak for my self and my case. I think there are enough other artists and cases which have similar issues! For example: sometimes Artist A only gave the idea for an emote with an sketch and Artist B drew it. Or Artist A drew an Emote in the year 2015 and now Artists B is only modernizing it. It would be great if both artists could get credit for that. So an option to choose more than one artist for the same emote would be great.
2: Like others before, I have the opinion that five badges are not enough. Especially for streamer with an wider. There are Artists for panels, backgrounds, emotes, transitions, Video editing, thumbnails, alerts and many more. If you have more than one person that provides you with all this assets for your stream, at the moment twitch forces you to decide which artist is more important and which art has the most value on your channel. And again: this creates an unnecessary bad mood. For comparison: I currently have about 50 VIP Badges and only use a few of them. And I know that you can get more of them if you grow your channel. Why not using a similar system to get more artist badges? Or an other proposal would be to bind the number on badge to the number of emoteslots you earned. There would be several ways to achieve the same goal: us getting more badges to give proper credit to all of the great artist which make streams look good everyday.
And 3: Like someone before me said, it would be grate if we could give credit to our own emotes if we designed them. It would be great if for example new chatter click on the emote and see that I illustrated it or animated it. This would show how much work we artist put in our own channels and creates a new topic to talk about.
thanks for reading all of this
