  2. The channel I mod for has a channel point prize for adding a song to a warm up playlist. It would be good if we had the ability to set keys and values on the message that gets sent for the channel point redemption message. So I could set like "reward: song" and then "url: {whatever the url is}" etc.

  4. Deafult channel points reward that gives you the power of posting a texted message while the chat is in emote-only chat.

  5. So I have a lot of points for a streamer I watch but can’t really do anything usefull with it. I think it would be great if it was not only possible to unlock an emote for 24 hours but if it was also possible to gift another viewer an emote for 24 hours using your channelpoints. I would love to see this feature added. It would really improve the interaction between viewers as well

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. I talked to StreamElements to get an alert for highlight messages in the new channel points feature, but they said this is not possible because of the API, I don't know how that works, but they said they need the API to make the alert working this will be possible soon?

  11. A few proposals to improve them:
    1. If the streamer wants, give them the ability to create emote purchases that lasts for longer than 24 hours (templates should be: 1 day, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month)
    2. Allow the users to re-buy emote remotely up to 1 week after it expires or bookmark it for the case they want to re-buy it at any other time.
    3. The above should also apply for modified emotes and their respective modification (exception: seasonal/temporary modifications)

  12. 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).

  13. I'd love to be able to change the icon of the 'Modify a Single Emote' reward with an image of one of my emotes with, for example, the Flower Crown, but sadly the preview provided is only 56 x 56 where as it requires 112 x 112

  14. Channel Points...I love them already. I do. I'm using them as I'm typing here. One great idea though imo...I really would like it even better if Twitch gave us a bunch of random icons to choose from to use with each custom reward we have. I don't have any custom icons and as a gamer, streamer, and upcoming holiday lover, I don't know about you but, I don't have the money to pay for a bunch of icons at different resolutions to be honest lol. I KNOW alot of streamers will love to have this option as well. My first…

  15. There is a bug where the contribution to a channel points community challenge will be shown in chat several times (like 50 times) so that you cannot see the rest of the chat.

  16. 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…

  17. The set up would be an affiliate/partner would be able to create a collectible series of emotes/cards etc that their viewers could then spend loyalty points on purchasing packs that have a random selection of the collectibles inside.

    Once a viewer has completed the series, they are able to prestige the collection and advance the grade by collecting the same emotes/cards again but more of them in order to progress to a grade that is a higher collection and each collection completed could earn the viewer a badge.

    The idea behind this is to increase the incentive of a viewer's…

  18. Just looking to simplify the rewards system with some preset options in a multiple choice setup as a way to mitigate some of the confusion and misunderstandings from typos and missing info when redeeming rewards that only have a few options to choose from

  19. People are suggesting an API for channel points, and initially it seems like a good idea, but a forum post I saw elsewhere explained the privacy concerns of being able to track channel points through an API. But instead of an API for channel points, what if we were able to link REDEMPTION of channel points rewards to an API, and additionally create native Twitch commands that configure channel points acquisition rates and conditions (ie. active chatters vs lurkers or 10 points/5 minutes default vs 20 points/5 minutes default), as well as give streamers the ability to add or remove…

  20. For channel points there is an option to limit the number of times something can be redeemed per stream which is great, my idea is an extension of that. Can we have it to where each viewer can redeem the channel point option a certain amount of times per stream. Example being one viewer can redeem a channel award 5 times but that's all for that stream all other viewers can still redeem that reward until they redeem it 5 times themselves, or whatever max value the streamer limited it to. I hope the way I'm explaining this makes sense…
