First Following Date / Turn off follow button option
I have spoke to many people over the years of me being on Twitch and many of us are upset that when we accidentally click "unfollow" it resets our following date. I know some people have done it on purpose, but many of us would like to keep our follow date. Being on mobile at night time when I am relaxing somewhere and not on my PC, it is easy to accidentally click the unfollow button, especially if I have fallen asleep. It would be nice if it was possible to create an option, maybe in settings, to turn off the unfollow button or something of the sorts so we keep our original follow date. Or maybe it just show our original following date when looking at our user card in chat. I am not sure what options there are regarding this feature but I hope that it would be possible in the near future.
Thank you for considering my idea,
Something happened and I blocked my friend on twitch somehow. Which doesn't make sense. You have to click like 4 different things to block someone. I immediately unblocked them and refollowed but it really hurt to lose months and months of follow age.
I wish twitch would do something about this. I got an error message saying i wasn’t following e streamer when i clearly was. So I clicked follow and technically i unfollowed and followed I’m so mad. Now I don’t know if this was a bug or not Now I can’t regain the lost time I lost. Honestly devastated. It wasn’t my fault.
I agree with TheRealZeusTTV, followage should reflect the first time you ever followed a streamer. If you want to have some dumb follow-streak to reflect the current system, that is fine... but make it so if we unfollow by accident, on purpose, or due to a bug, our followage still shows the original follow date.
at the moment when you introduced a new function that resets the follow time, when you are banned, my follow time has flown, how can I return it?
true it just happened to me It should show the original following date and If people (for some reason) don't want others too see the original date they can just unfollow
There a lot of people including me who lost their followage while the streamer got banned and obviously we have to wait but for the people who accidentaly press follow and they lost their followage its bad, so I suggest the followage history have to be permanent so If one person accidentaly missclick the unfollow button or click follow while the streamer was recently unbanned dont have to worry cause the followage history is saved
If you accidently unfollow someone it you lose your followage, I think it should save the date you originally followed a streamer.
Today I was watching a streamer called Johnzzze and I have been following for 9 months and it unfollowed me for no reason so I would like to see if you guys can fix it if possible.
Since many people get accidentally unfollowed from streamers, I think this would be a good feature.
Ben sevdiğim bir yayıncıyı yanlışlıkla takipten çıktım ve tarihin yeni olmasına üzüldüm arkadaşlarımda da oldu bazı kişilerde ilk takip tarihinin geçerli olması güzel olur
Please rework the follow age system to save the first time you followed a channel. I hate accidentally unfollowing a channel sine you don't even prompt for the person to confirm that they want to unfollow. And as a result you loose your original follower age which stinks. I like to have that sentimental value of seeing how long I have been watching a streamer and the fact that it can be so easily removed by accident is insane. Please fix. At the very least just have a an ability to confirm the unfollow before it actually unfollows.
I feel this, i was following one of my favorite streamers for awhile for 2+ years and i have a 1.5 year sub badge and its gone cause i somehow unfollowed
Hola buenos días/noches. Les quería comentar un problema que no es muy grave pero sí que me fastidia. El caso es que yo en varios canales le he dado a dejar de seguir por error y al seguirle otra vez toda la antigüedad registrada que había hasta el momento se resetea. Y es algo que me ha fastidiado mucho como por ejemplo en canales como en el de Ibai que le empezé a seguir en twitch a principios del 2020, pero el 1 de noviembre sin querer le dí a dejar de seguir y ahora pone que le sigo desde ese día. También me ha pasado con canales como el de dazrbn y otros. Me encantaría si pudieseis arreglar esto ya que haría más feliz a milllones de personas a las que les ha pasado esto. Gracias por su atención.
Resolve the follow issue, let us have the information about time following peoples even if whe don't follow they anymore, like a "history" about that.
It's frustrating lost that information after some miss click or bug.
adding first followed date next to follow-age.
streamer can see follow-age may accurately.
