  1. Give Streamers the option to use a certain amount of Emotes (Maybe more for Partners or something like 1 + 1/10 of your unlocked Emoteslots rounded up) to be unlockable by Channelpoints but not by Subscribing or Cheering. Every Streamer can chose the cost of the Emotes they want to have themselves.

    This allowes Streamers to give something back to the Community and makes it possible to get emotes by just watching and being Active in the Stream and the Community when the people cannot support monetarily. This also still incentivises to Gain More Subs due to getting the possibility…

  2. 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…

  3. Currently, you can only get 20 (10 on each side) top predictors.
    I collect statistics for each prediction and users can check how many points they spent and their total profit. This works fine, because on the channel on which i host my bot, about 40-80 people participate in bids, and the statistics show bets with a size of 1000+, but for larger channels this bot doesnt make sense, because even huge bets will have chances not to be included in the statistics.
    It would be great to have access to all the predictors, for example, you can arrange a…

  4. Chat polls are a super fun way to keep chat engaged and excited about whats happening in the community and on screen, and it would be cool to have at least a small channel point incentive for participating.

  5. 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…

  6. The greater possibility of interaction with the streaming of channel points, through third-party programs, has led to an increase in the infinite possibilities of channel points buttons.
    To date the only way to make them active or inactive is to select them individually, as long as they are 1 or 2 it does not change much, but when they start to be more than 50 it becomes a bit problematic, so I would suggest the possibility of creating sub-categories, where it is possible to switch off the entire category, without however affecting the possibility of reactivating the single option.

  7. I would love the ability to give channel points to everyone in chat or individual viewers. This would help eliminate 3rd party bots.

  8. When you reach a certain amount of points, the only way to get more is to bet 250k each time. When you have a large amount, 250k is slow to make more points. The more channel points allowed to bet, the more in the pot for people to make.

  9. For rewards that allow a message and also have a cooldown, they simply show 'out of stock', instead of a countdown for the cooldown like rewards without allowing messages. It would be useful if the user could see the cooldown for these types of rewards too.

  10. 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…

  11. I work as a graphic designer for a streamer who exclusively likes to focus on his streams and content. It's a pain for him to have to deal with updating panels, emotes, badges, channel points, etc.

    Could Twitch provide access to mods & editors to do that kind of work?

  13. Would love a way to create categories for the channel points in the managing section. I know that I and other creators have specific redemption's for what we are streaming. Specific to the game we play, ones that will be available all the time, etc. Instead of trying to find all the ones to enable or disable would be nice if they were all together.

  14. 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…

  15. I have noticed a trend where people tend to wait until the last second in order to dump a massive amount of points into a prediction. I understand that this is part of the risk, however I frequently get invested at a low chance of success just to have someone else drop 4~10x the entire result pool I just entered. I agree with not allowing people to withdraw or swap, but it just doesn't feel good to suddenly risk 10k or 50k for a mere 1.05x payout. I propose two solutions:

    First option is to add a toggle to the…

  16. 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.

  17. A channel point leaderboard

    I feel like this would be another fun inclination for viewers to stay in channels and to show who is most active in the communities.

  19. For each channel point reward, I would like to be able to choose one or more games/categories for which it will be enabled. If I'm streaming a different game, I don't want those rewards to appear in the list for viewers.

    This will help streamers with game-specific rewards by removing the tedious task of manually enabling and disabling their rewards before each stream, and help viewers by removing clutter if the streamer chooses not to do that.

    If channel point folders/categories are implemented*, this feature should also be applied to those.

  20. I miss predictions all the time because I am not looking at chat. It would be awesome if there was an option for there to be audio alerts for when predictions start.
