  1. Currently you only can input text for channel point rewards. Let's change that. Here are some ideas:

    • Numbers only
    • dropdown list
    • sliders (with adjustable range)
    • up to 6 buttons (text or icons)
    • color picker
    • Other usernames in chat
    • 1-5 stars rating
    • date/time
    • secret (isn't shown in chat, except for >= moderators)

    the payload of those results can be sent as regular content, as if they were entered as text. This would remove a lot of explaining to viewers how to use channel points.

    No more "If you enter \"can you set your LEDs to brown?\" into the field, my script…

  2. I think users should be allowed to give their channel points to other users. You choose who you want to give your channel points to and how much channel points you want to give them. It could be useful in multiple circumstances.

    For example, a user has 45k channel points and wants to redeem a reward that costs 50k. A different user may be generous and then give the first user 5k channel points so they can afford the reward.

    Since streamers have infinite channel points for their channel, they could give users points too. For example, they could have…

  3. A section similar to emote analytics but for channel point redemptions.

    After clearing out your channel point rewards queue, there's no longer a way to see what was redeemed and how many times. While streaming, it's very hard to keep track of that.

    Having a dedicated section for analytics would allow creators to remove redemptions that are only being used by a small portion of viewers or even one or two people and replace it with something more can enjoy.

    Creating this analytic will also help creators increase chat engagement as they'll understand better what they can do to prompt…

  4. For variety streamers, it would be wonderful to be able to put certain channel point rewards into folders that can be turned on and off with the flip of a switch.

    For example, I could put all my "Fallguys" rewards into a "Fallguys" folder. Then the entire folder could be turned on. When I play a different game, I could turn the folder off.

    With the current system, we have to go through a huge list of rewards turning each individual reward on and off when switching games. The end result is that many streamers just have rewards that don't…

  5. 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…

  6. It would be awesome if you would implement the ability to attach sounds to Twitch Points redemptions via a web/browser source and give us the option to upload our own graphics to maintain the theme of our streams while the alerts go off - like how StreamLabs allows us to customize our own alerts.

    Why would this be a good feature?

    For example, via Streamlabs, I have alerts for both Donations and Bits when someone wants to spin my Wheel of Whamboozle. But I also want those who can't contribute monetarily to have the ability to Spin it based on…

  8. Would be great to have a running tally (lifetime totals) of Channel Point Rewards, perhaps in the left hand bar underneath the "current requests" amount, like this:

    AMA
    3 requests
    12 overall (or 12 lifetime? Something like that)

    That way we could easily see which rewards are popular, and which ones we might want to swap out for something else.

  9. Viewers should be able to earn Channel Points by watching VODs (Video on Demand). Undoubtedly, many viewers of many streamers are of international relation to the streamer, this is why it is important to include everyone into the Channel Points experience by letting viewers earn Channel Points by watching VODs by their favourite streamers. This feature must be implemented because international viewers are situated in a different country, thus (in most cases) are in a different time zone. So it only makes sense for viewers who aren't able to watch live streams be able to earn Channel Points by watching…

  10. In the creator dashboard, under Viewer Rewards / Channel Points / Manage Rewards and Challenges, it would be fantastic if we could have the ability to organize Custom Rewards in groups, and be able to enable or disable entire groups of rewards at once with one click instead of enabling or disabling each individual reward. This would be especially useful for anyone with content-specific or limited-time, event redemptions.

  11. 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.

  12. Mods currently have the ability to refund and clear their own purchases on the channels. Unless the streamer is following their every move, or accumulates a back log, we can't see this happening. Mods should at the very least, not be able to refund and clear their own channel point purchases.

    A better thing would be to not allow them to clear out the requests at all. Just mark them completed and to refund, but keep the digital trail. Currently the only way to find this is to be on the same page with all your other mods, and check/compare…

  14. Since streamers can't give channel points directly to their community, I think they should be able to contribute to their Community Challenges themselves.

    That way, a streamer could reward a viewer (for instance after completing a minigame, like answering a trivia question) by donating points to the Community Challenge of their choosing. Since streamers have infinite channel points, this also allows them to complete a challenge early without refunding the points.

    This should obviously be available only for the challenges that the streamer creates, not the ones provided by Twitch like the "Boost this stream" challenge.

  17. 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

  18. So, I've seen a few ideas for a Channel Point Menu Overhaul and I wanted to add my own ideas as well as group other ideas I have seen that I also believe are worth seeing.

    1. The ability to group channel point redemption rewards into their own separate folders that can be named and given its own image (it would have a small folder image in the corner to signify it is a folder when looked at from the viewer's CP menu.)

    2. Each folder would be able to have set cooldowns and limits the same way individual rewards do. So,…

  20. I don't know if this is an original take but why not make a channel points ranking that can be seen at the top of chat or something? I think that sort of thing would give incentive for viewers interact and gain points past using them. There are plenty of streamers who don't have interesting enough channel points rewards and I end up stockpiling them. It would be nice to display them past big bet wins. It would also fit the cheesy "gaming" theme.
