  1. 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…

  2. Please add a log of whether channel point redemption was approved or refunded by mods. Some mods have been abusing this power and it would be helpful to know who is doing what.

  3. Can predictions % have the option to be based on the amount of people who voted for an option instead of just being based on the channel points predicted??

  5. 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.

  6. Twitch has recently decided to discriminate its users based on where they are from.

    If you are from a "restricted region" you can not participate in channel polls. Or as they put it, you can but you can only put zero points. Which is more salt to the insult.

    It would be awesome for Bezos owned Twitch to stop being a hub for discriminating people based on their origin and actually respect human kind.

  7. Some streamers are offering channel point redeems which scare the streamer. (For example @Player2_Live, @Scarlett, @DreamYeti, ...)

    But these don't work if the streamer reads the redeem message in chat before it plays on their PC.

    So, maybe let the streamer set the redeem as "invisible" or "stealth". Either it won't show any message in chat, or the message will be delayed by 10-20 seconds.

    Oh, and some streamers do the same, but for a set amount of bits. So e.g. they might want to set 200 bits to only appear to the streamer and to chat after 20 seconds,…

  8. Some of us like to watch our favorite streamers on the big TV so being able to earn channel points while watching on our console app and that would also benefit the people who want to watch that don't have a PC and also don't want to watch on their mobile device.

  9. 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.

  10. I think an option to add bits/cheers into the channel points redeemables would be a welcomed addition. It would help the support Twitch and Streamers. There are bots that already use channel points redeemables in conjunction with an overlay system, such as MixItUpApp, which allows overlays (images, videos, text, etc) to be displayed on the stream using a local browser source. Mixer had a similar setup when you spent their version of bits (embers), but their overlay was in-house and had videos that played showering embers, shark eating embers as it went by, trains going by with embers dropping etc.…

  11. It will be a manual action by the streamer and not automatic so as to counteract channel point farming, and can only be done by the streamer.

  12. When you predict with a custom number of channel points, you have to type a number in the field and press the "vote" button. Would be great if you could submit your prediction by pressing the Return or Enter key.

  13. 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.

  14. May we please have a feature to collect channel points from more than 2 streams? I just found out that this is a limitation, and I've had multiple streams open almost every day.

  15. It would be more useful if the channel point redemption could be limited to "moderators" and "VIP" and "subscribers".

    チャンネルポイント交換を「モデレーター」「VIP」「サブスクライバー」に限定できればもっと便利だと思います。

  16. 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…

  17. It would be good for mod view if there was a button that could pause all channel point redemptions for when there are specific times a streamer wants them off. I have to go in individually and disable all of them and it's pretty tedious. So it would be nice if there was a button to turn them all off or a separate menu that came up where there would be checkboxes for each one you want to turn off instead of going in each redeem individually.

  18. I was wondering if it would be possible to create a system where point redemptions scale as they are redeemed. For example, some streamers have a Push-up redemption for say 1000 points. The next tier or redemption of that point redeem would cost a set markup that the streamer sets. If say the streamer marks it up by 50% the next redemption would cost 1500 points instead of 1000. I think this idea would curb trolls, make redemptions more meaningful and help streamers like myself come up with unique ideas.

  19. Please add a user channel point cool down for ALL redeems. There's an issue with people coming into chat and one user redeeming every redemption at once. Say user 1 redeems, they now have to wait x amount of time before redeeming while user 2 can still redeem if they haven't in the set cooldown time.

    Adding a universal cooldown for all redemptions for users will help limit this spam.

  20. Simple: add a timer for redemption on the channel point redemption list list as well, so we don't have to click one and "oops! It's on cooldown! better go back to pick another".

    Additionally, show what will be the cooldown time on the redemption itself BEFORE they redeem and make it optional to hide the timer and cooldown, for streamers who wants people to "run to redeem it first".

    Additionally, correct this flaw: redemptions that have a text box input DO NOT SHOW A TIMER. So if someone set the timer to a long time, there's no knowing when the…
