  1. Somewhere in the channel point menu, you should see how much points you have compared to others, like say that you have 1000 points and all other viewers have 500 it should say you are in the 1% top channel point earners. This would go in line with the push of predictions and give increased incentive to earn points

  2. Having to use my mouse to pick things out of a list can get kind of annoying because the channel points options are huge tiles in a tiny box. It'd be nice if there were some kind of tab-completable /points or /spend or /dothething or /whatever command to get to them more nicely.

  3. 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…

  4. Why can't we give out channel points to viewers?

  5. 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.

  6. I've personally found great difficulty creating anything significant out of channel points simply because there isn't a way to be reliably notified when a prize has been redeemed. If they functioned in a similar way to Followers or Subscribers where it's API can be accessed, this could improve upon its function significantly.

  7. 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.

  8. The 'Get Custom Reward Redemptions' Endpoint requires the call to provide a reward ID and a redemptions id/status. This means in order to get a list of the last 50 channel point redemptions for a channel, you have to do a separate request for every single reward available on a channel.
    This seems way over complicated to just get the last redemptions on a channel.
    Ideally, you could call this endpoint and get the last 50 redemptions that include redemptions of any of the rewards. Then a parameter of offset could be provided to get more redemptions.
    Not sure why…

  9. You can enter custom bets on a browser, but on mobile you can only bet in increments of 10. Please add a custom amount option while on mobile.

  11. What I am thinking would be a channel point booster that would allow everyone in the channel to reach a Twitch Specified Goal i.e Twitch would scale the amount needed. Once the amount of channel points were pooled by the community it would trigger a community channel points "hype train" during this time anyone using bits would receive a specific percentage off their bits 5% , 10% similar to when the heart events go on. They could also receive a price break on any gifted or purchased subs during this time. I think this would bring in a lot of…

  12. An option to filter out certain tags on our own will help us make our feeds more personalized. Like for example if someone does not want to see "PvP" they could put it manually into an ignore list and it will filter out feeds with that tag in it.

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  16. I know this is a very unpopular viewpoint. A lurker doesn't contribute to the stream in any way. They sit in chat, don't watch videos or they will watch the video but with the sound muted, which doesn't count as a view session on a video on demand feature or livestream.

    I can't tell which is a lurker and which are bots. I assume all lurkers are bots and should be banned.

    Come up with A.I. as an extension to download to find bots / lurkers in chat, give them warnings to either leave the channel permanently, speak up in…

  17. Obviously there will be an option to pick if u want a maximum amount of channel point sent in a day for the community challenge. But there should also be an option to be able to send an infinite amount. Only being able to send 2k channel points a stream just doesn’t make sense at all.

  18. 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…

  19. Add the ability to customize how channel points are earned, the amount earned for what, and advance further into how they can be used. Right now channel points are Twitch-given solely which makes it hard to determine the right prices for rewards. I would love to be able to have Channel Points interact with built-in Twitch features such as emotes and badges considering Channel Points ARE a built-in Twitch feature.
