Allow Affiliates to edit their prefix.
Editable Emoticon Codes before the Unique Code.
Partners too please, thank you.
Admin audit: changed "emoticon code" to "prefix" for ease of search.
As InfernalDawnn has noted, the fact that the auto-generated prefixes just grab from the start of a username means that they grab adjectives more often than they do a user's actual name.
Allowing all streamers more control over their prefix, even if it's just choosing from a wider variety of auto-generated prefixes for Affiliate, is nothing but an improvement.
Emote prefix should be at least customizable or maybe even be the full Username. Like my name is InfernalDawnn for example, why is my prefix not "Dawnn" with some numbers or just straight up "InfernalDawnn". My prefix is literally "Infern349", when I go by Dawn. And where do these numbers come from? I don't understand why I can't choose it myself, or have at least a little bit of customization.
why is it fair that I was first to claim my own username & be on the platform for years but yet because I don't have a blue check I don't have the right to have my own username as my prefix without an ugly "1" after my name, there's affiliates out there streaming HOURS a day just like partners are & we don't have a right to our own prefix/username in our emotes lmao
id pay to be able to change it i wont lie.
I think currently Affiliates having to have a randomly generated emote prefix is severely irritating and, quite frankly, antiquated. I get that partners should have more flexibility, but being able to choose a prefix for emotes should be something that both affiliates and partners should be able to do.
I don't understand the point of it being locked to partners only and it should be changed to allow affiliates to change to a prefix of their choosing.
I feel as though we should at least be able to choose our FIRST emote prefix.
The fact that affiliates still have zero say in their own emote prefixes is ridiculous. In a perfect world we could customize it how we want, but at the very least we should have a choice from a few generated prefixes and not just the one it allows us to have.
I think Affiliates should also be allowed to change their emote prefix, either we should be able to choose the first time when we actually get the opportunity to have emotes, or we should be allowed to change it at least once from the randomly generated one. Thank you!
Like the title says why do we affiliates have to change our twitch identity just so we can change the auto generated emote prefix that is never close to anything we want but partners can just change it so freely makes no sense at all do better twitch.
holy cow! This post was made in 2018 and there was no update!?? What the heck Twitch!???
I have no interest in changing my username, but when I was promoted to Affiliate I was NOT given the option to update my prefix...which uses little of my username, and too much of my actual name? Its a combo, but the online identity has been entirely lost and I feel like I am not allowed this aspect of community engagement.
It's a little disheartening that my prefix has a 1, because there was one other person with the first 6 letters of my username, but they haven't streamed in years. So even though their account is just.. dead and has 1 emote, I can't have the original prefix, ever.
I think this definitely needs looked at. I'm sure affiliates used to be able to change their prefix at least once. It's a bit annoying cause the generated ones arent always suitable. Mine is a portion of my user and a series of like 3 random numbers :[
Also it's so disheartening that this has been advocated since 2018 and there has been absolutely nothing done! Twitch clearly doesn't take on Affiliates opinions :[
Agreed! Personally I had no idea what my prefix would be until I saw it. And was hoping I could change it to something simpler (if available) as it’s current the first portion of my handle and a series of random numbers.
I think even just being able to choose a number for your prefix to change it with would help! Because I would like to at least be able to change the number in my emote prefix to something channel relevant.
Emote prefixes can be wrong, Affiliates should to correct them without changing my username.
For example in my case - my username is Thegur90 and the prefix is locked to "thegur8"
The only way for me to change it is to change a username I've been keeping for years (and how most people know it)
I don't mind applying the same cooldown on them etc etc just lets us set them up once correctly before auto assigning us a wrong one
It seems silly that not being able to pick or even really change your prefix (without changing your username - therefore messing up your entire branding you have worked so hard for and likely spent a lot of money creating and forming) is even a thing. I'm a small streamer but I am working hard to make things more professional and make it look like I care so my viewers care. I am trying so hard to get every detail right. Something like a prefix for your emotes seems simple but "Guys, go spam Biotec5Hi in so-and-so's channel when we raid and show them love" instead of BiotechHi or BioHi or BTechHi or a MILLION other better options than just throwing a random letter in? Not even like a drop down box with options like so many websites have when you go to create an account and its like "Oh this is already taken, what about these options?"
Theres only two streamers with Biotech as their name, me and one other guy. How is it Biotec5 is what I got?
Its nice to think that when I get bigger I can have that option, but wouldn't it help get more subs and what not if even the little streamers can look professional? Get that viewer count up, see lots of ads, stick around cause they emotes are perfect? Get that engagement up?
How about a few options they give, so it's not fixed on one 'style' if your name is long and you wanna use another part of it instead of the first few. Or maybe let you put in a part of it and let Twitch randomize it to find a few 'matches' that could work?
I wanna use calico as my prefix, which I can't without adding random numbers, but the option to choose which numbers would do wonders for me easily..
the prefix should always be custom or at least let the affiliate choose which letters are used from their username, my name "theRealbracey" gives me the prefix of "therea" instead of "bracey" like it should be
Customizing a prefix is important as an affiliate building an accessible community by not having it, Twitch is creating systemic exclusion. The community members who need to type out the emoji instead of clicking it will be used to typing out an emoji by name and, if you cannot change the prefix until you are a Partner, you are punishing the creator's community--because by customizing it after the community is built (i.e. after you are Partner) then you forcing a bunch of Twitch viewers who type in emojis to have to relearn a new prefix because what they are comfortable with is no longer a valid prefix
I dont fully agree with making it so that we can customize it to our content however i think the silly numbers need to go i for example got given redthe28 which just looks stupid and dumb make it so it cannot generate numbers when creating a prefix and id be happy
