only affiliates and non-affiliates should be able to use the boost this stream rather than partners.
if the boost feature is added, won’t it benefit bigger streamers rather than smaller ones? i think it needs to be beneficial for them too.
They do! I mod for a stream that avg 7 viewers and gets a boost a stream a week
Additionally, actually spread the love. From my understanding someone already had the opportunity for 4 boosts while from a collection of people that I know including myself never saw a glimpse of the feature. Don't understand what algorithm is being used by Twitch, but it's definitely biased.
I totally agree, patners doesn't need a such feature.
Allowing them to have it wouldn't help anyone
On paper, boosting a stream to help discoverability is great, but if larger streamers who absolutely do not need any form of help when it comes to being discovered are being given boosts, it absolutely defeats the purpose of this feature, which is to help us smaller streamers get some footing on Twitch, something that Twitch's own help article on it has admitted to.
My proposal is that there has to be a cut off on who gets to be eligible for Boosts, where if a streamer has been accepted into the Partner Program or is very, very close to hitting the threshold to be able to apply, then they are clearly in a position where they are not struggling to be discovered.
Stop just catering to your partners - this is all the boost system will do.
