  1. Instead of asking our viewers to choose between fun and promoting the stream, make the boost passive and based on ANY points spent during a stream.

    As it stands, the system is creating a conflict of interest - particularly for channels that are solely powered on Channel Points.

  2. if the boost feature is added, won’t it benefit bigger streamers rather than smaller ones? i think it needs to be beneficial for them too.

  3. Stop just catering to your partners - this is all the boost system will do.

  4. Evidently in trying to collect data on the optimal way to implement the Boost feature, there's a group of streamers that are getting the boosts and others that are not. This makes sense but to reduce bias, it may be needed to have a second part data collection where the group that did not get any boosts get the boosts instead, and compare the results from the two parts. This can help identify any biases, if any, and will be more fair (and thus reduce dissatisfaction of smaller streamers that we're seeing).

  5. I am no where close to being a partner, and this happened for me (average 12 viewers). I was so amazed when I got the oppurtunity for this. It was a bit tough to reach the goal, but you have 2 days. When I completed the Boost challenge it made my stream boost to 56 viewers. It only last about 10 mins. I feel like if this is going to be a thing, let the small streamer enjoy the Boost a little longer. I do not feel this option should be for partners.

  6. This entire idea of Boost this stream is amazing. As a content creator I am more than happy and ecstatic at the thought of maybe having this on my own channel. Although I see this tools usefulness in aiding smaller streamers grow I feel that certain criteria should be in place before becoming eligible to have access to a boost. For example: You can't get boosts on your channel unless you are an affiliate, You can't buy boosts in anyway shape or form for yourself and you can't get boosted if you are a partner. I feel the most important…

  7. Show live via a Twitch Ambassador streamer or another Twitch official channel how this works.

    If the boost system in any way can be used to over take those with a smaller audience, by having a 200+ viewer channel boost it's way in front of a 45 viewer channel, then there lies an issue.

    I wanna see what it does before making assumptions if it's a positive feature or not; whether I want to support the feature or not. As of now, it seems fine but I would love a live feed demonstrating how it functions, and answers to questions…

  8. The boost this stream should be based off streaming hours instead of 2 days. For example, I got the "boost this stream" challenge the other day, but I was ill and had to cancel my stream the day after, then the day after that is my off day.

    It will now be missed because we were just short on the day it came in as it came in at the end of my stream. Instead of it being 2 days. Have it be the next x amount of hours streamed. This gives people the chance to hit the goal if…

  9. I wish you and the team would stop trying to push features like this. Instead of having a "boost" feature, why not work on a better way to make smaller content creators to be discovered?

    Many have resulted in branching out to other social media and content creation platforms in order to funnel more viewers into twitch because of the over saturation of streams. Look at how addictive YouTube and Tik Tok are... Also look at how easy they are to just continuously browse and find new content. These are the things you should be focused on.

    Honestly, Small streamers…

  10. So I like the idea, but just a few tweaks. I like how the challenge can just pop up and we have a couple days to complete it, but upon completion can we save the boost for the future? I got the challenge on my "friday" so I felt compelled to make sure I completed it within the time frame forcing me to stream on my day off. I did complete it but then the boost happened right away. I would love to see it for the next stream where I can prepare for it, kind of like a front…

  11. I feel like this does favor big streamers. Like, sure you can scale it this way or that. But if you have 0-5 viewers, this won't do anything for you. Perhaps if you could accumulate these points and use them to raid a small stream?

  12. what if there’s a system where if a smaller creator, and I mean someone who posts content/streams, boosts a larger creator via channel points, they get a mini boost of their own by a thing popping up in chat saying “this person booted this large creator!” & they get a little spot on the main page. just an idea

  13. Instead of spending channel points to boost the stream, could the boost bar be filled a bit every time someone collects their bonus channel points? I love channel point rewards and I hate the idea of people choosing between boosting my stream or redeeming them for fun. This way people can fill the boost bar by actively watching, and still use their points for what they like.

  14. One thing bothers me about the Boost: people are suggested to me that I can't understand because I don't speak their language. It would be nice if these promotions were more specialized.

    For example, if someone often watches German & English streamers, that they are suggested to him.

    What should I do with a streamer if I can't understand him?

    Also, by being "Promoted" you don't see the viewership & you can't mark the person as "not interested" like you can with normal streams.

  15. My community managed to raise the 63,750 channel points that were needed for the Twitch Boost (other channels a similar size to mine only needed to raise 20,000ish, but that's another matter)

    Basically, we raised the amount and I wasn't aware that the boost starts AS SOON AS you unlock it and for that stream only! I was only doing a very short dog walking stream, so when I ended my stream that was it. I had lost my boost. I was under the impression it was for a limited amount of time and that it would continue when I…

  16. On paper, boosting a stream to help discoverability is great, but if larger streamers who absolutely do not need any form of help when it comes to being discovered are being given boosts, it absolutely defeats the purpose of this feature, which is to help us smaller streamers get some footing on Twitch, something that Twitch's own help article on it has admitted to.

    My proposal is that there has to be a cut off on who gets to be eligible for Boosts, where if a streamer has been accepted into the Partner Program or is very, very close to…

  17. During a boost, as it's described now, people can use up to 2,000 channel points. This isn't an issue for viewers with a lot saved up, but more casual viewers might have to choose between other channel point rewards and boosting. To fix this, making it so channel points spent on any reward during a boost contribute to the boost could help. This makes boosts feel less like a waste of channel points, and could make boosts more hectic and fun. However, if a streamer doesn't want this, they could maybe set a limit on the number of redeems that…

  18. When the boost this stream happens everyone raised 25k Channel points in under an hour, so if every time the goal is completed on a stream make the next time for 50k and the stream is shown to 5.6k people!

  20. It would be more easier if big streamers and partners did receive a bonus for hosting and raid and promote smaller channels.
    Twitch is going to have a massive issue soon.
    After the pike of growth and quarantine demanding at some point in 2 years from 2021 (or less). Twitch will get boring because the only people who get to survive doing this are the big streamers massively caputing viewers for what?
    Plain same show, just shouting and screaming and doing non-sense. Ceelebreties with teenager actitud. This will work as long as viewers always remain teenagers ?

    If big streamers…
