allow users to use sub badges from lower amounts than they already have
Having different sub badges for people of different sub lengths is really cool but sometimes you really like your sub badge but your enter the next bracket so you have to go with a higher up one that you think is less cool.
I think it would be better if you had the option to use any of the sub badges up to what you have reached
I'm begging you to do this.
Oh hey! I see my suggestion from 2-3 years ago got merged (as a comment) into the suggestion from 4 years ago that I never found when checking if I was the first to suggest it because of the excellent search functionality of this site! ;)
Anyway, glad to see this is up to 150 votes already. I don't care who suggested this first, I just want it implemented xD
Come on, put an intern on this for a week already, and make several tens of thousands of nitpicking nerds like me happy!
Was just about to post this same suggestion, crazy it's been here so long!
Allowing subscribers to choose their badge from the unlocked set will 100% result in more variety for community badges, and allow badges to feel more like a collection and less like a hierarchy.
It's claimed by some of my viewers.
Subs Badge can be chosen by the subscribers, and seen on all channels he's chatting, with to represent his "preferred" streamer.
This would be really nice to be able to do if you have a favourite badge. It'd still say what your current months are when hovered over.
Allow the option with channels that have multiple subscription badges (1 month, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, etc) to pick and choose which one you wish to be displayed. Example: 9 month subscriber will allow you to choose any of the prior subscriber badges previously obtained while maintaining the ability to hover mouse over sub badge to view how long someone has been subbed for.
Currently there's MANY sub badge tiers, and in most cases streamers are forced to make them look like some sort of "progression" because they change as the sub changes. This often results in a large portion of chat (the longtime subs) all having the one same "final" badge.
The idea here is to remove that uniformity and no longer force creators to make their badges progression-based. Simply add a per-channel badge selector for subscribed channels that allows the user to select from all badges earned up to that point.
I would like it if I could choose my sub badge by myself. Let's say I've been a sub for 24 months, but I like the 6 month badge more. i cant change it and thats not cool
I find this would be ideal as well, or at least make it so after so long of being subbed or spending a set amount of money on subs be given the option to choose, like for example, you've unlocked the final badge in the series and would like to switch them off and on depending on what you're feeling. I think there's multiple ways to go about this and it would be cool to have that option, preferably not having to spend alot of money to do so but even if you do, at least it's there
Being able to select any unlocked sub-badge would be awesome. The badges I'm working on for my channel would benefit greatly if users were able to select a badge they more closely identify with. Hope this gets implemented one day.
For example: After cheering 1000 bits, a user has the option to show a 1 bit, 100 bits or 1000 bits badge.
Similarly, if possible, it would be great if something similar could be done with sub badges. This would mainly be for color-matching purposes with other badges and/or the nick color.
The hover-over could still show the total amount of subbed months as it does now.
As for the customization menu: this could possibly be combined with other suggestions to allow people to choose to show their Founder badge, on a per-channel basis.
This idea was actually brought up by a streamer I was watching. He was doing an art stream designing new sub icons for another channel and someone said they wanted to stay a specific sub icon forever because they really enjoyed that icon. So why not allow a sub to choose which icon they present once they have earned a specific icon? Like if I've been a sub for 4 years but really love the 1 year icon why not let me choose to wear the 1 year if I really love that icon?
Let's say that you have been sub to a channel for 5 years and cheered total of 100000 bits.
It would be great to have the ability to choose what badges to use in front of your name from all badges you have unlocked on the channel, for example if you like 2 year sub badge more than 5 year badge you could just change it and same with bits you could use 75000 badge instead of 100000 badge.
