  2. I will preface this suggestion that I am comparing twitches current channel point system to Streamelements since twitch feels very limiting and we could do so much more with it instead of resorting to a 3rd party to use channel points which makes it inconvenient for viewers. With that being said comments saying just use Streamelements isn't helpful, i'd love everyone's actual thoughts towards this.

    Currently Twitch's channel point system feels very limiting overall especially when compared to other channel point systems aka streamelements.

  4. Dear Twitch,
    I strongly believe that It would be a good idea to implement a fix into twitch making people eligible to collect channel points in multiple streams at the same time. By doing this, many people will have the opportunity to redeem rewards in their favourite twitch streamers stream by simply having a tab of their stream open when ever they are live. Knowing that you are able to watch something else or even another streamer/s and still collect channel points will overall make people happy. I have had my own experience with this as it has been very…

  5. A giveaway even that you can enter with channel points. Customization on the number of entries and cost of entry. This allows Streamers to do raffles for their bigger fans.

  6. Now that Point Rewards can be created, updated, or deleted via the API streamers may be unaware (or simply forget) that an integration with their account is set up to modify point rewards.

    An integration could change something on behalf of a streamer, and they may not know what is making that change.

    A "Managed by XXXX App" could be added to the point reward page, showing the name of the application that updated that reward.

  7. Similar way to redeem points to highlight my message or any other 'free text' redemption. However it will have a drop down list of options to pick from. This can be set to required.

    This allows for a streamer to allow users to redeem points to select from a set of options. For example. A list of playable characters in the game for the chatters to select for the next match.

  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. It takes too long to get to the higher point items. Not many have 2-3 hours to spend watching a stream in order to get a specific emote they want. And once they get it they only have 24 hours to use it. That is not long enough especially for people who do not watch during the night time hours. Changing this will get people more interested in Channel Points.

  10. I think the community channel points feature could be expanded to be a battle system. Team A vs Team B or idea 1 vs idea 2. For example I wanted to do a channel point community battle for Horde v Alliance. First team to get XYZ points wins. I had to enter this manually but would have been awesome to be automatic like the other immunity challenge. Or a tug of war type system would be really great. Could be used for many incentives/ideas across channels.

    TLDR: channel point battles

  12. Currently
    Tier 1 = 1.2x
    Tier 2 = 1.4x
    Tier 3 = 2x

    But every stream values subs differently and has different rewards in channel points. It would make sense for us to have control over how much each tier gets.

  13. Please add a 20x20 option for channel points icons, so I don't have to look at a distorted 28x28 icon.

    Alternatively, make the channel points icons display at native resolution (28x28).

  14. Currently we have built a game around channel points. The issue is there is no way to disable the "claiming" of channel points in chat. This makes chat spam like crazing.

    Would love a way to hide the messages showing up, while still letting users claim them

  15. I would like to see Twitch implement a Channel Points command. For example "/cp **" where ** is the name of the reward.

    We make extensive use of the Channel Points system and have about 40 rewards. Our regulars have said that it is sometimes difficult to find the reward they are looking for in a timely manner in order to affect what happens on-stream through a 3rd party application called Lioran Board.

    Channel Points are a great tool for viewer engagement, but the method of finding a reward needs to be easy and streamlined. Not clunky and inconvenient.…

  16. Having a channel-specific badge that viewers can display could be a great way to allow users to flaunt long-term viewership in a channel. Similar to the way that a channel-specific bit badge operates, viewers could choose to invest Channel Points in to this badge which would upgrade to a fancier version at whatever cutoff points Twitch decides upon. This can also serve as a good catch-all purpose Channel Points redemption for channels that don't have or want extensive Channel Point options available.

  18. Prior to channel points being a Twitch feature, many streamers decided to use their streaming provider to create a point system and create another source of entertainment on streams. I know that with Streamlabs points you can gamble your points which provides yet another way to entertain yourself on stream. In some streams you could actually type !gamble in chat and streamelements would then reply with a successful or failed gamble doubling or claiming the point amount you gambled, but this may not be viable because it could really clog up chat. I do wish however that there were some…

  19. 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

  20. This would make it much easier for channels to make use of channel points in more creative ways, currently most streamers are using a chat bot for points, and then channel points are almost useless
