Bring back the offline image
I and many other streamers use the offline image to communicate important information about the stream, and with it being missing, small, or overridden by the other cards, I'm losing an important method of communication with viewers.
In addition, the auto-featured recent stream, while nice for some streams, is not useful or appropriate for all channels, and it would be nice to have the option to disable it.
...I guess the sum of what I want is just the option to keep my offline image as the main visual element on the channel page when it's offline. The new additions are all useless for my channel's needs.
I agree. As a compromise, maybe it would be nice to have an option, so everyone can choose by themselves how they want it to look like.
True! I want my offline picture, not a video.
I am here as an artist, a *big* chunk of my income is from creating offline screens for other streamers and I don't think I'm alone on that.
Not to mention the people who just spent money on my stuff to go to waste, from the last two months alone I have over 10 commissions that will end up useless (not to mention the panels on this discussion) and I think that's super unfair to my clients. We should at least have the option to choose whether we keep it or not!
I agree with both core points here, allowing an offline image in place of a video preview as well as *not* auto-playing a recent stream.
100x this! This is my major objection to this new format.
I feel as though this is important.. I love my offline image and some people have paid a lot of money to get something done - I do like the new design, but I would also love to have my offline image there!
