I would love for Mods to be able to receive revenue separately from the broadcasters. I also think that the broadcaster should be able to choose which Mod should receive a payout also. Mods are very Important to the channel and should be recognized, appreciated, and rewarded as well. I always thank my mods for all of their hard work and support, and I think that with all of the hate and racist and homophobic trolls on twitch, a thank you is sometimes just not enough for the hard work they do to protect Us while streaming.
There is way too much to discuss on this topic for it to be one way or the other. Twitch shouldnt be held accountable for Mod duties OUTSIDE twitch which rolls into the Mod role on twitch...
Use some brain power and actually
if the streamer opted into the program and the mod was somehow verified and certified so twitch knows they are real and they know what they are doin i could see it working
Twitch should pay its mods -
The affiliated or partnered streamer would have to enable their Twitch to pay mods. Then, they choose the percentage it gives divided between their mods, and mods only get paid on streams they are actively in (much like they keep track of a regular user's activity).
In most instances we pay 40% extra for bits, and streamers make 50% of subs.
Well, mods would get paid from Twitch's portion.
For example that 40% extra for bits, 20% to channel mods, 20% to Twitch. That 50% of subs? 20% to channel mods, 30% to Twitch.
That would encourage mods to watch and participate in the channels, and keep the community safer.
And if the streamer wishes to pay their mods more, they could dip into their percentage to distribute that in addition to the Twitch cut. Or, alternatively they could opt to give their ad revenue to their mods.
Mods getting paid would also incentivize mods to advertise the streams they mod for more. As well as garner the community and encourage them to donate bits as well as gift subs.
And, Twitch could use that as a tax write off, I am sure. If a channel opts in to use Twitch's cut to pay for their mods, Twitch would be able to claim that as a loss of profits and get a tax break, I am sure.
Mods are the ones who keep a chat under control, use commands, choose the perfect time to put ads, ban or mute viewers, help the streamer to set things like volume of the camera, and even change the title or the category. In most cases, mods spend at least two hours doing these things, depending on the streams duration.
And yet, they don't get paid. They are working for free.
I suggest a feature which makes sure that they get any sort of revenue.
For example, each mod should get 5% of the quantity made by all subs during a stream.
Those numbers are just random. But it would be nice if twitch intervened between a streamer and their mods in order to set a mod revenue based on the quantity of money made by a streamer in each stream.
