  1. Right now a user has to first click on a reward to see the cooldown timer. It would be much more convenient and better UX if the user could see which rewards were available, which ones are on cooldown and what the cooldown timer is inside the channel point rewards window.

  2. I've personally found great difficulty creating anything significant out of channel points simply because there isn't a way to be reliably notified when a prize has been redeemed. If they functioned in a similar way to Followers or Subscribers where it's API can be accessed, this could improve upon its function significantly.

  3. A couple of ideas to improve the way channel points work.

    • Ability to group rewards, and possibility to bulk enable or disable them by group / use case would be if the streamer has rewards that are tied to a game, such as selecting a character, so they can easily switch available rewards when they stop playing

    • More API control over channel points (change active and inactive rewards, approve or decline rewards).

    • Possibility to manually reward viewers with channel points, change modifiers for subs / VIPs, etc.

    • Adding possibility to add cooldowns to redemptions

  4. Right now, all custom events require being fulfilled in the rewards manager, however, I believe there would be cases where this process would not be necessary. A number of people, such as myself have already worked on programatically tying these events to do actions elsewhere. Instead of having to, manually or automatically marking these off through the API, it would make more sense if these events did not have any entries within the queue

  5. There is a limit of 2 streams that collect channel points per user. Many times I would like to view another stream(s) without it affecting the 2 streams currently collecting channel points. It would be good to have the option to toggle a channel points collection option so that the 3rd stream doesn't collect points and doesn't affect the 2 other streams that I do want to collect channel points for. I'd like to be able to choose which 2 streams collect points and which don't.

  6. I have a suggestion on how to Making the Most of Channel Points. Example Viewers buy League Of Legends Skin Shard with 50k points which you have eearned watching/betting with the viewers
    I think this will be a positive impact on every party:
    -Streamer tools more Viewers/watch time.
    -Viewers get in games loot.
    -games devs/streamer relations.
    -twitch will have a way to retake those points back.

  7. It would be great to have a channel point redemption that allows you to mimic the roll of a die (aka: a random number generator; d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, d100, etc). As a channel point reward this could then be limited to once a day, once every X minutes, etc.

    This could be used just like a "spin the wheel" feature, where someone redeems it to make a decision for the streamer to act on.

    "What are we doing today?" random number between 1-100 "Ok, looks like we're doing XYZ" (discussing a certain topic, drawing a picture, 100…

  8. Hello,
    Here is one of my suggestions for channel points. In the " Community " tab in the Creator Dashboard then in " Channel Points ", add a board where you can see the ranking of people with the most channel points. We as a streamer can manage users as reset, add or remove channel points. We could also set up an extension below the stream to put the channel point ranking in public.

    Thank you for taking the time to read,
    Gaming_RB

  9. Channel Points messages appear in chat, but don't show up in VODs, and aren't available in the Chat API. It would be good to at least have the messages appear in VODs to help provide context for what's happening, and even better if it was treated as another chat message, so it could show up in the chat API as well.

  10. Hello to all the twitch community, I had an idea for the channel points. I thought of a channel point that would be called "first" and that the followers could spend their points to get it first quickly. When they get the channel point first they would also get a temporary badge to indicate that they are the first to arrive on the live. The channel point would be available once per streamer for a single viewer.

    As for the developers on twitch, you just have to set up the temporary first badge and that's it. The twitch community could…

  11. The redemption cooldown time is fantastic but I think we need a 'seconds' option in the drop down menu along side 'minutes', 'hours' and 'days'.

    For those of us that, for example, wish to have a 30 second cooldown on channel point redemptions

  12. It would be great, for special redeems that are rarely bought because of their expensive price for example, to have the option to "annouce" the redeem in chat so they stand out
    For example you could have redeems such as "end stream" for 500k points be announced so everyone notices it immediately

    This option would be chosen by the broadcaster in the channel point settings

    here's a proof of concept as to how it could look (comparing a normal redeem to an annouced redeem) : https://i.imgur.com/h8XMf0c.png

  13. It would be very useful to get for moderators to be able to accept/deny channel points redeems directly from chat without having to open the request queue or modview. Like a small button saying ACCEPT and DENY just below the redeem.

    For moderators who work with a lot of requests every hour this would mean managing the redeems a lot faster and easier.

  14. A System where you can
    - see who has which number of channel points
    - give / remove a certain number of channel points of a certain user / user group

    The nice thing is that you can make giveaways of channel points or can put them as a prize for tournaments, esspecially if you don't have money to do otherwise.

  15. Additional emotes that cost channel points to use. You can buy a number of uses of an emote, and you'll only be able to use it that many times unless you buy more. Host sets the price, users get to flex their channel points and display their channel wealth in chat.

  16. I run a custom interactive overlay that lets users spend points for in-game effects. Right now they can save up points from multiple streams and spend them all at once to get a big advantage. I'd love a setting that makes it more expensive for a user to redeem a channel point reward for each time they've done it during that stream — it'd encourage them to spread out their spending a little.

    For example, I could set the initial cost of a reward to 200, and the increment to 50. The first time in a stream that a user…

  17. A lot of predictions end up near 50-50 because too many people wagering in one direction of the prediction increases the equity of betting the opposite, even if the true likelihood of that event happening isn't reflected as such. It would be more exciting and create more interesting results if the total wagers and percentages were hidden until the betting window ended.

  18. Dear Twitch xoxo,

    Is there a possibility to setup Community Challenges WITH channel points rewards as a project basis?

    Example :
    I wanted my viewers to build a ship together , I setup a community challenges with Channel Points rewards JUST contribute for that particular community challenges.
    That channel point rewards only can claim once by 1 viewer (eg . ship core) then the other part will be (eg . ship weapons).
    the total rewards points for all the one time rewards = total community challenges points needed to complete the project.

    I believe this can be used in many…

  20. Allow mods to be able to add comments/notes to reward redemptions. It may be that there are multiple steps behind the processing of a reward so being able to add a note may be useful for other mods to review
