  1. So, I was an affiliate and decided to leave the program and really miss the interactive channel point system. It would be LOVELY if you all would give channel points to ALL streamers because it just makes sense. Channel points are a great way to have interactivity with your community and it SUCKS that I, a non-affiliate or partner streamer, can't use the feature. I may be in the minority of this though. My question is though, why is it only for affiliates and partners anyways? It's not like you make money off the channel points anyways, so it really…

  2. The channel points right now are just based on streaks and time spent in a chat. What would make it perfect is the ability to award your viewers or entire chat with an amount of points you choose as well. If it were possible to award points yourself in addition to the twitch integrated method of earning points it would be perfect.
    For example:
    -I could choose to award the whole chat 100 points each when we get raided.
    -I could choose to award a specific viewer 50 points for telling the best joke.

  3. The point multipliers have recently changed so that it is fairer that if you are paying for a higher tier sub, you receive a higher multiplier. Unfortunately, as opposed to increasing the multiplier for higher-tiered, lower tiers had their multipliers drastically lowered to the point of not really being that different from a non-subscriber. Idk how it may look from the pov of Twitch Staff, but from a user, getting 12 points for passive watch time and 60 points for an active watch time bonus while a non-subscriber gets 10 and 50 points respectively just doesn't seem that fair. When…

  4. 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?

  5. You have a chance to get a normal treasure chest and then you also have a chance to get golden and gem treasure chests that give more than the normal treasure chest but the golden and gem treasure chests are pretty rare.

  6. change hype train and chat poll popups to not increase chat size and decrease stream size unless interacted with or add an option to not have that happen.
    Change hype train and chat poll popups to Open the chat and then do the same when the chat is closed/stream is in fullscreen mode. Both issues are infuriatingly obnoxious that should never have been a thing to start with.

  8. https://twitter.com/kcdotmp4/status/1363631643668353025

    Explains it with an image attached, but for those who don't want to click it; explanation below.

    Basically it's a page where you can filter out by ascending/descending order in which channels you have the most channel points in, but it also displays if you forgot to follow said channels and if they're currently live along with their stream titles and displayed stats such as viewers/duration of stream, just kinda like your following/browsing page, but condensed nicely with the addition of being able to sort by channel points.

    Because I have this really weird quirk about me where I…

  9. As a fellow twitch member and someone who has spent my money buying a sub I personally think the 1.2x multiplier is not enough and I am too broke to buy either a tier 2 or 3 sub. I think a 1.5x multiplier at minimum for a tier 1 sub would fit the price I pay.

  13. It would be nice to acquire channel points from each stream and take them into other streams. I watch roughly 6-7 different streamers, some I'm interactive with and others I am not due to redeems being the default and not worth using. I would Like to carry those points that I acquire from certain streams and use the acquired channel points in other streams.

  14. My friends vision isn’t so great from the new colour of the channel points bonus box under twitch chat. Is there any way to revert the colour or to change it entirely? Or even just ask to make it a more visual friendly colour again? He suffers from colour weakness and I’m sure others like him or with full colour blindness may find it difficult in seeing the colour of the box. I think it’s more to do with the time of the colour but it causes him physical discomfort.

  18. The Twitch point ToS says "Points cannot otherwise be exchanged for items that have value outside of the website" but i have seen several screenshots of Twitch personnel giving the "OK" for streamers to offer their merch as a reward. If merch Items are allowed it should say it in the ToS.

  19. 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…

  20. I get a lot of times where viewers lurk and don't chat, yet they earn enough points and want to use the points but they never actually watched my stream till they earn points. I would rather have people who actively watch and chat earn the points instead!
