Getting affiliate should be about getting more followers and not more viewers
set the affiliate program just to 50 or 75 followers because twitch has a massive problem with correct viewer count, I have had like 20 people watching my stream at one time before, all chatting at the same time, and it only counted for like 2 or 3 of them.
eso es verdad yo tu be 28 es pectadores los 28 hablaban al mis mo tiempo y solo me conto como 7 o 6 pero y siento que es absurdo borrar los estrims de ace mucho tiempo es absurdo por que podriamos ganar mas visualisaciones
I completely agree! I've been over 50 followers for a while now, and in my streams I have had an average of about 15 viewers, but then when I look at the affiliate stuff it says i have and average of something like 2!!
Temos problema espertadores não está contando, eu quero ser afiliado, por favor me ajudar
I have absolutely the same problem. Yesterday, my average viewer count showed 2,04.. nowdays i have 4-5 viewers, i know about them, but twitch shows only 2-3.. and if that's not enough, yesterday i had 7-9 viewers for 3 ours.. now my average is dropped to 2 from 2,04.. Why? How?
Me parece una idea excelente. Estoy teniendo una media de 9 viewers en mis últimos directos pero cómo en los primeros no me veía nadie pues se está haciendo cuesta arriba llegar al afiliado y es muy necesario para que la gente pueda ajustar la calidad de los directos.
Todo mi apoyo para la medida.
muy de acuerdo, he llegado a tener 8 viewers durante todo el stream y mi average no alcanza ni siquiera los 4. https://www.twitch.tv/poxeroo
yeah im agree with this, idk why it doesnt count the views as it should be! Deberian de corregir cada aspecto de los "views" ya que no los cuenta de la manera correcta y no es la menare justa de conseguir el afiliado
same thing is happening to me - my average viewership on my channel dashboard should show 3.5 viewers however it seems to be stuck at 2.7. This has been the case for at least a week now...
I completely agree. I will have more than the amount in my chat that is says and chatting all real. but still no count.
Yeah this is a problem because I'm getting 10-25 people watching my streams daily but yet my average is only 1.1. I have 60 followers and I just need to get a 3 viewer average to become an affiliate.
Well George, not everyone has friends
George getting affiliate is not easy to get, I've been trying for the last 2 years, and sometimes they don't count all the views you get towards the viewing..
Getting affiliate is easy - 50 followers and 2 friends + you watching isn't hard to obtain. If anything, I feel that affiliate should be barred at 5 average viewers and 100 followers such that twitch isn't owing pennies to creators who will NEVER hit their payout.
Twitch need too fix affiliate.
i had such a case yesterday, the viewercount is the only thing left for me becomming affiliated, and yesterday i had an amazing stream with an avg of 2-4 people all the time, at least that's what my viewcount said, the statistics afterward told me i had an overall avg of 1.5 and some times of the stream even below 1???
@krissatiel theres a difference between twitch being broken and having a down day. I have multiple days were i have 12+ people watching and talking but only says 1 viewer or barely counts some of them. Today alone i had 16 viewers all talking and new but said 5-7 the whole time. it makes no sense and when over 100s of people have this problem its definitely from twitch's side. I've sent in multiple support tickets and the one they finally answered actually apologized cause they know their own detection system is BS. They answered saying lurking/muting the stream also counts as a view before you mention anything about that.
Actually update the follower count on affiliate achievement
all viewers must write
While I can understand those numbers, figures etc are there to help you build a community for being an affiliate, what I don't get it is why it IS broken. Yes it is broken.
Yesterday, I had 2 friends (no they are not bots! friends.) They both logged in and viewed my stream just to help me at least to protect my minimum 2 views average. Yet, all night long, I only got 1 viewer. Only 1. There is definitely something wrong with the viewer counter or the algorithm beneath it. Or they do this on purpose to make it harder for new affiliate candidates.
OTOH, I do not agree with the follower number to be the main threshold which can be abused easily and in most cases seems arbitrary. I mean there are lots of people how have hundreds of followers yet with very low average viewers which makes it meaningless to be an affiliate since this whole system depends on real-time viewership. 3 AV and 50 followers might be perfect limits yet, please fix the real-time view counter.
How that work ? also how much that cost ?
