Pre Twitch accounts should be give priority and or mentor status to differentiate between those who know something and those who don't.
Pre Twitch accounts aka those of us who were forced to join Twitch after the take over of Justin.tv We should be given priority over those who are not as tenured as us in stream ranks as well as perks, and a mentor status badge to differentiate us from those who never even had an account until about 2012... This used to be called Voiced. Those of us who have accounts that are OG should have more privileges over those who don't in terms of ranking on the overall page, easier time to partner, as well as more unique advertisements like those who have pre google accounts on YouTube. We have been here so much longer yet don't get the respect we deserve or even benefits that separate us from those who have just joined...
Voiced users used to not be quite a mod but held a badge next to their name that separated certain user from the rest of the regular watchers. Those who posses tenure like myself should have higher priority on the site than those who have less year and just more viewers. I feel having so many years ahead of the rest of everybody on twitch that it doesn't even get shown let alone acknowledged. Justin.tv really wasn't about numbers only Dan, Swiftor, Tom, Flamegoat, and a few others had viewers ranging from 70-400 which was unheard of just crazy amounts. But they are OG's as well and put work in I feel as if OG's which remember there are not many of us even left around or were here to begin with streaming was just a low viewer count for everyone else. I wish I started back in 07/08 but you have to remember internet actually used to be a major issue of having enough up / down.... This put quite a few of us behind not only in terms of being young and not being able to do anything about it but also spending more time watching which I do love to do but it hindered my overall channel greatly... Please, think about the users who were here supporting streamers prior to the amazon take over and think about how long we have actually and are still actually here. We don't leave we have proven that loyalty isn't even in the question if we are going to be lifers are not here many come and have gone over the years who were never apart of the actual jtv community... Please, try to prioritize and recognize us as the real MVP streamers / watchers / lurkers. Please, think hard about this as it is almost Christmas and I would love to have a great gift this year of being prioritized and seen as an actual long time member of a community that I helped to grown and still do to this day! Happy Holidays JTV/TWITCH. Special shoutout to DJwheat!
