Moderators being able to join predictions
Hi, I'm one of the lucky people who get to play with predictions. I had it pointed out to me by my mods that they were not able to join in on the fun. I had several complaints about not being able to predict my death on stream.
I have more than a couple of moderators as not one of them are able to make every stream, and it feels unfair that the moderators can't join in on making predictions, other than starting a prediction.
With the limitation of only being able to vote once, the only problem I could see in the validation phase of a prediction. Is there not some way this could be mitigated as in a second confirmation from the streamer so that the moderators can't validate the prediction in their own favour? And the confirmation of the streamer having more weight than a moderator?
Moderators are already trusted, so they shouldn't be expected to game the system with predictions. Besides, moderators can pretty trivially still game the system by helping non-mods move points around. Predictions are fun, so it's a shame moderators can't take part.
If my mod is going to abuse this, they shouldn't be my mod. Agreed that this is a restriction that shouldn't exist.
Please make mods able to vote :D
100% agree that mods should be able to vote. And if the only worry is mods abusing the system then they shouldn't be a mod.... This decision should be up to the caster, not Twitch.
I share this meaning Moderator should take part! especially because smaller channel sometimes miss somone to bet against. It would be already enough if streamer and mods could set a pool to win. give some kind of regular point pool to win. I would suggest 100-300 so that it is not to much but a good way to tease the viewer to set and bet even if nobody is taking part. This way mods would be limited to.
We already have a role for this called "Editors" which should be the people who can manage but not take part in Predictions. It seems very strange that moderators have power over them, as it does not seem like something a moderator should be doing.
Moderators are often pillars of the community, so excluding them from Predictions is madness. Move their powers and limitations over predictions to the editors.
