Reduce raid confusion and lost users, using the new carousel :)
We are all still very confused when there is a raid and we can't host the next stop. People who are left behind, people who walked away from their computers, people who got the notice too late and clicked, come to an empty channel, or a channel with an autohost that is not where all our friends went.
Because you removed Twitch "friends", we can't see where our friends are that way either.
This is a daily frustration for us.
Idea: "Autohost raid recipient" option which works similar to how hosting used to work. If you enable this option, then raid recipients would show up at the top of the carousel for the duration of the stream.
Secondary: I think that'd be ideal and have very little learning curve, and make a lot of us very happy without breaking anything new. But in addition, an automatic Chat message that says "The Channel has raided to @newchannel", clickable, for anyone who used the Leave button, or otherwise didn't manage to follow the raid. This would not help late arrivals, but otherwise would be nice.
Prior to the changes, the chat would say the name of the hosted channel, so if you were left behind, you could see in the chat where everybody went. This would help restore some functionality.
Both would put us back where we used to be, within the new system.
Thank you for listening!
