Regaining instant uploader eligibility - Suggestion to prevent loop
I'm writing this message to give a suggestion regarding Affiliates being able to regain instant uploader eligibility after losing it from an emote being denied.
Wanting to create Follower Emotes, I discovered that this feature was disabled for me because a while back, I had an emote design denied because it included a cross icon over a blue button (made to look like a video game controller). Unfortunately, it was interpreted as the letter X, which broke the Rules and Guidelines for emote designs ("emotes containing a single letter in the graphic").
To regain instant uploader eligibility, I've been trying to fulfil Twitch's eligibility (of needing to have "streamed at least 60 days as an Affiliate over a rolling 2 year period") by streaming once a week (the most I could realistically do at the time). However, I've needed to take a break from streaming, and now I'm disheartened to realise that if the 2 year mark (from when I started streaming weekly) occurs, I'll need to reset the amount of streamed days I've done and start over. If a streamer streams once a week, it would take about over a year (15 months) to fulfil instant upload eligibility. Even if an Affiliate streamed every day, it would take 2 months minimum to regain eligibility.
My suggestion is to make instant uploader eligibility easier to regain for streamers (who lost it from an emote being denied) by adding a time limit for having the instant uploader eligibility disabled after an emote's been rejected (from possibly a year, or a few months, etc). This way, a Twitch streamer will not be placed in a loop where they are trying to stream 60 times within a 2 year limit, and then having to start over if they are unable to.
Thank you for creating a space where people can create and express themselves. I hope that me suggestion is considered, and I want to thank you for taking the time to read this.
