Update Emote Prefix name.
Let me change my emote prefix name. apparently that was a thing but now it isnt. i dont like the one that was auto generated for me
I agree, affiliates should be able to change their emote prefix at least once or even better once a month
we would all definitely benefit from being able to brand ourselves with our usernames. myself, like others in this thread, cant do that with random numbers generated for us that aren't even in our usernames. "dispat6" is HORRIBLE as a prefix. I know a lot(if not all) of others will agree. we all worked hard for affiliate status, and some are grinding towards partner...let us have this one thing!
This is exceptionally unfair as some streamers get a part of their name that fits well, while others have partially cut off names or even worse...Numbers!
facing same problem, my auto-generated prefix is musics17 which is just horrible, like at least let me choose from a few auto-generated options
Yeah please let us choose, i change my name and now you only propose me : "lemoin2" Please twitch let us choose our prefix. with my old name it's hard for people to relate my emote to me !
So i got applied to affilate status and got "elrott" prefix. it's awkward. theoretically i can change username and get option to select new prefix, but it's look like cheat. better to allow to setup it manually for first time. i even didn't know that i should think about first 6 letters in nickname, cause them became emote prefix
Even if our prefixes have to be unique, why can we not change to part of our name - as Sukadia pointed out. Having "beesqu" as mine is so awkward... I also don't understand why it needs to be unique at all. What's the actual likelihood that I meet AND follow/subscribe two people with the same prefix ONTOP OF their emotes having the same name (For example of two "beesqu" prefixes have an emote titled "gg") So shouldn't it just then be organised by alphabetical order and in my own list of emotes then just give one of them a number or letter after?
In this example one emote gets to be locked as beesquGg and the other as beesquGg1 or beesquGg_1 like file names on computer when two files of the same name and type exist
I assume it's in place because emote prefixes have to be unique, but I say you should be able to change your prefix to any part of your username *at least* for affiliates. For example, I can have "suka" or "kadia".
Right now I got "sukadi1", which is not only confusing with the i and 1, but the same length as my username "sukadia". It couldn't have just picked "sukadia"? I know username generation will always be unwanted, so allow us to pick a section of our name to use.
I assume twitch don't actually care, but I cannot see why when you get affiliate your not asked for a prefix initially then locked out of being able to change it till partner, rng is the stupidest mechanic possible in this case and not even a difficult change to make.
For Twitch Affiliate should be 1 time free changing prefix of emotes. At this moment we are getting automatic generated. Its rly sad for new affilate and theirs viewers if you need to write "dn25somthing".
Es wäre schön, wenn man als Affiliate einmalig seinen Emote Präfix selbst aussuchen könnte.
Man wählt einen, der wird durch Twitch überprüft und man ist glücklich.
Die automatisierten Emote Präfix sind meistens sehr lang und unübersichtlich.
Make the Emote prefix changeable at Affiliated not Partner, i rly just wanna change it "Truefe1" is not a prefix i wanna use!
Having the same issue, I have a horrible auto generated one and it makes my emote name Super long now with numbers in it, this is not convenient at all. If I'm in someone's channel (whether my own or others), I want to quickly add my emote, if I can't find it, I type what I remember it's called. No one will remember mine with the auto generated nonsense.
Please Help! Thanks
I just got affiliate and I'm unable to save a prefix code at all, just keep getting hit with a error that says:
There was an issue with your request.
Your emote prefix can be updated once every name change.
