Emotes exclusive to months subscribed - Evolving Emote Idea
I would like the ability for a channel to have an emote tied to the months subscribed.
There should be two options to go with the implementation, the ability to allow non-current subscribers to still use the emote and the ability to set the same emote for all subscriber month goals or a different one.
This helps reward people who subscribe to a channel for extended periods with more than just a sub badge. Creators could have a wildly different emote at each month, or choose to have an emote that evolves as their subscribers reach typical month goal.
In a way these would likely take design principles from sub badges but apply them to emotes. If creators enable the option it also allows non-current subscribers to still retain a small benefit from their tenure and allow them to use a specific, exclusive emote.
For example, 1 month may be a wooden tombstone emote, at 2, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months the emote would be changed to a fancier tombstone. In this way subscribers to that channel could have an evolving RIP emote that shows off their own contribution.
Given the amount of emotes this adds to a channel this feature may be best suited for partners.
