Standardize Emote Approval Time/Method
There are several glaring holes in Twich's Emote Approval process at this time.
To demonstrate inconsistency in your system: I uploaded copies of the same, static, non-animated emote three different times: The 1st and 3rd upload were instantly approved, while the 2nd one became "pending approval."
To demonstrate approval time in need of improvement: I uploaded my first set of emotes on 2/10. The majority of my emotes were instantly approved. Two, one animated "rave" emote, and one non-animated "raid" emote, were listed for approval. It has been 16 days and counting since these emotes were uploaded- twitch advertises 48 hours average approval time. Either change that figure if it is now different, or do something so that the approval process does not take in excess of a certain amount of time. I have waited 700% longer than the advertised approval time at this point in time.
Example of this system's drawbacks: As someone who does their own art, I want to be able to release new emotes as a viewer goal on a subaton next week. If I upload an emote today, and it is pending approval, it probably won't be approved in time for the subathon. In this way, my creative aspirations are being inhibited by your approval system.
Twitch- please do something to stop inhibiting our creativity- either be honest/transparent about current approval times so we can plan things on our end or do something to make your approval times fit your advertised time frames better.
