  1. I'm in the process of developing a game designed to use channel points (CP) as a means for viewers to interact with it. I however have encountered a couple of minor issues that would be detrimental or unintended side effects of the game due to limitations in the channel point system.

    Firstly, there is no way to order CP rewards manually. Since the CP rewards are the viewers interface and resulting action, it would be much better to have them ordered by type of action rather then the cost of the action. In addition I wanted to use a "NOTES"…

  2. Dear, you could have a beta channel point system to generate a little more interest in viewers, have only the options of "highlight my message", "send message in slow mode", and limit that the creator can only put 4 custom options, can be used to "choose a game", "choose topic of conversation", "choose any things" (which is within the regulations of Twitch). Thank you.

  3. Moderators have access to view the reward requests view of the twitch streams they moderate for and accept or reject the reward redemption. Can broadcaster have more control over this capability?

    While it is awesome our mods have the ability to do this, some moderators may exploit the ability to approve and reject requests, while rejection means the channel points go back to the person. For custom rewards this means they can keep accumulating points and redeeming them on custom rewards and then rejecting and giving themselves the points back.

    As broadcasters, we do not have the ability to see…

  4. It would be great to have the ability as a Mod to disable spending channel points during a specific situation. I have been noticing in the Role Play community that when alot of hate comes into the channel and we go into sub mode only. The haters will wait until they have enough points to post a message in sub mode just to throw Salt or the spam some of the cheaper options to distract the streamer. I know that there is emote only mode but that also feels like a punishment for the subscribers that are not doing anything…

  5. Channel points would benefit from having more options. Give streamers the ability to put a redemption on a cooldown per user and per redemption so we aren't getting spammed with 10 hydration checks in one minute etc.

    Allowing moderator access to channel points could be cool too. Have a redemption that we can type a command and have it work automatically. Examples:
    "Time myself out for 1 minute!" /timout [user] 60
    "Emote only chat!" /emoteonly

    Even better would be a double command with a box for a time interval, so:
    "VIP for a day!" /vip [user] | duration 24:00:00 |…

  6. How about we have a leader board for channel points so everyone (even the channel owner & their moderators) can see who has how many points. The channel owner would be the only person to give out channel points on their own terms.

  7. Twitch streamers should have the ability to change the highlight color of the "highlight message channel points feature." This would be a setting that allowed full control over what color the highlight would be. If the highlight was a dark color, the text would be light and if the highlight was light, the text would be dark. This allows chat to look slightly different from stream to stream, allowing for a more unique look to chat. It's makes chat slightly more personalised to the streamers liking.

  8. I oftentimes prefer it to keep the chat box hidden because it distracts me from the stream. But I also like to collect the channel bonus points and don't want to open the chat box all the time only to collect bonus points. Wouldn't it be possible to make the box visible/clickable even when the chat box is hidden?

  9. Instead of only a limit per stream, allow channel point rewards to be redeemed per a time frame (every 15 mins,m, 30 mins, etc.)

  10. Inspired by seeing a Skip a Song reward on one of the channels that cost 250k points. It's too costly to be worth and if one guy somehow buys that, it can be unpleasant to all other viewers.

    The default option should be called "individual" and streamer can change it to be "collective".

    F.e. collective reward costs 50k, you can pay only 5k to enter and when 10 people enter, reward is completed.

    You can see the progress of a reward online in all rewards menu. If you enter and it's uncompleted, you will have an option to leave at…

  11. Add a list of options to choose from for a channel point redemption. For example I allow users to change the stream layout. Rather than having 3 separate icons I could have one and they can choose the option. The output in chat would be the same as if they typed the message out. I'd also like them to be able to change the greenscreen background and adding 3 or 4 more redemption options would start to clutter the points screen.

    1. Being able to convert channel points into bits to use for that specific channel where you collected the channel points. Twitch can set an amount that would be beneficial to them and the Broadcaster.

    2. Being able to use the channel points to subscribe to the channel. I mean we are there watching and supporting the broadcaster but it would bring in more viewers and watch time if the channel points actually mean something and is useful.

    Example where channel points don't matter at all is at Maximilian_Dood's channel who is one of my favorite broadcasters. I have accrued so many…

  12. 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…

  13. Add the ability for viewers to exchange points among themselves. For example, create a market where you can buy or sell the points of each streamer for money (or for bits) + transaction fee for a twitch and streamer like in steam market. (because streamers set unique rewards with too many points, and the market gets the opportunity to earn these rewards and make a profit for the twitch and streamer )

  14. 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.

  16. Allow streamers and/or mods to view the points for each viewer, and to add/remove points from viewers in their channel. (This will also give streamers the option to manually transfer points from any other point system.)

  17. I'm a moderator for a relatively large channel that used a channel points reward to integrate with a crowd control mod, and the reward was redeemed some thousands of times over the course of two streams. To get these out of the queue would take hours of refreshing the reward queue page (which displays only 100 of one reward at once) with an autoclicker on, or deleting the reward and replacing it with a new one. Neither of these seem particularly optimal, but a button to mark all as complete would nullify the issue—though it is of course a minor…

  18. Make the channel points button usable while in full screen mode while viewing a channel. As it is, we can't be in full screen for this.
