[Feature] Stream Events & Streamer-versary
We have some exciting news to share with our Streamers! We have just launched a new feature that allows you and your community to celebrate your Streamer-versary (the day you became an Affiliate or Partner) in an extra special way. To help start the party, Twitch can now send you reminders of your upcoming Streamer-versary and helps you choose a date to celebrate within a 2-week window from the day you joined the Creator Program that aligns with your ideal stream schedule. During the stream event, viewers will see an anniversary badge and tag on your stream; and to help chat feel extra special, viewers will get a special prompt to congratulate you and custom emotes will be available for your community to share the love in chat on your big day.
With the above features mentioned, we would love to know what other events or milestones would you like to celebrate on stream? Perhaps your birthday, the anniversary of your first stream ever, or your 100th stream? Let us know. We’re also open to suggestions for other features you’d like to see during your Streamer-versary celebrations. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
The confusing thing about the date is the statement of 4 weeks - looking at the date range they made available to me it was up to two weeks prior to the actual anniversary and up to two weeks after the actual anniversary, making a total variation of 4 weeks.
I saw some other people with the same issue, I was intending on setting my stream anniversary day for the 26th, but unfortunately didn't give me the chance to edit the date within the 4 weeks as per mentioned in the email.
It's unfortunate but no problem, will still do the event and I guess wait for next year on the scheduled day.
As some others mentioned, I am unable to set my affiliate anniversary date because it already passed, even though your email (which I got on the 13th) stated it can be 'any time within the next four weeks'. I wasn't sure when I'd do the anniversary stream so I didn't change the date from my official anniversary (27th, a few days ago now), but now I DO know the date I cannot adjust it anymore. Bummer.
Would be nice if you either adjust this system to allow changes within those 4 weeks unless you already streamed on the streamerversary date, OR make it obvious in the email that you should set the date so you don't miss out.
Im already a twitch affiliated, I don’t know why you sent me this email
Hey, it's great to have this Streamer-versary! But although I am Affiliate I'd like to celebrate the day when my first stream was. That is the birth day of my channel and community. So for me, this day is more important than the day I became affiliate. It would be great to have the choice to celebrate this day instead or additionally. :)
i so think it would be a nice change for twitch to have a special tab like ''recomended smaller comunities'' and ''people recomended for you'' but one for people celebrating their Streamer-versary to get that extra push since even getting shown at ''recomended smaller communities'' takes quite a decently sized community
I celebrated my 1st year as Affiliate, but 6 days later the Streamer-versary came available. I'm like why now?
Stream-versary is great. But I would like to celebrate the anniversary of my first stream ever and also my birthday. Like a streamer said: Streamer-versary should be the date of your first stream, not the date you got affiliate.
QoL Improvement: List the anniversary number (1 year, 2 years, etc.) and also have a different badge to represent the longer times similar to how sub tiers/bits/gifted subs have different badges for longer terms/more, could follow that system.
Love the idea of Twitch getting behind these events!
Here are some more events, as mentioned by others;
1. Streamer-versary - Date of first stream ✨
2. Affili-versary - Anniversary of becoming Affiliate 🥳
3. Partner-versary - Anniversary of becoming Partner ✅
4. Streamer's Birthday - Has to be the exact date 🎂
- Push these steams up the Browse Directory.
- Unique border around stream preview in the Twitch Directory.
- Add unique backgrounds in schedule tab to make these events stand out.
Streamer-versary should be the date of your first stream, not the date you got affiliate. At least that's how I celebrate it.
Maybe you could let us pick our own anniversary date and lock it so we can only do one per year or something.
I want to celebrate my Streamversary in 2023, since the program started 6 days after my Affiliates. I want to change it to 2023, and try it out.
Birthday for sure, every 100 streams for sure, every 1K, 2K, 3K etc
Streamiversary means the anniversary of streaming, not when we started getting paid for the content we create. So that's gotta be opened up.
Follower celebrations would be great, but it may need a set of numbers, like 100, 250, 500, 1000, 2k, 3k, etc. An open number just means you can have celebrations all year long.
Great start to the idea. Lets get it right.
Aggiungerei anche il compleanno dello streamer! Visto che il mio è il 3 maggio sarebbe magnifico sfruttarlo! 👀
Calendar for new Stream Events needs to be fixed because a bug is preventing it from opening in it's entirety for me to select it properly. Please fix! (Windows Chrome)
I cannot find where you are supposed to input the streamer-versary date. It just says in the creator dashboard. But where? Do you have to actually wait for the 2 week window? Also, I don't consider my streamer-versary when I made Affiliate, I consider the first stream ever my streamer-versary as do many other streamers.
This feature is great! But when I wanted to set it just now, I couldn't change the date of the anniversary, and it remained the same after selecting the date. :(
Maybe it could be a godd idea and event if you can celebrate the release of a new game or new season/chapter
Seconding this comment: "most people base there streamer-versary on the date their channel started. not when they make affiliate or partner."
The date of your first stream feels somehow more meaningful, like you decided to make a commitment that day and hitting affiliate is just a random day you didn't specifically pick, you just hit it when you hit it.
I agree more visibility for small streamers.
