  1. The streamer that I mod for is busy being entertaining and streaming and keeping viewers excited, and they don't have time to go through and queue up songs for the playlist (one of the new channel point prizes we have in our channel). It would be helpful if mods had the ability to access the same interface as the streamers get, to help out.

  2. Chat polls are a super fun way to keep chat engaged and excited about whats happening in the community and on screen, and it would be cool to have at least a small channel point incentive for participating.

  3. With the implementation of Channel Points, the opportunity for chat interaction and participation has sky-rocketed. To make it even better, allow users to redeem some of the "Channel Point" rewards using bits.

    Allow the streamer to create a reward with the option to toggle "Redeem with Channel Points" and "Redeem with Bits" and set the threshold for each. This would give streamers the option create rewards that can be redeemed only with bits, only with channel points, or with either.

    This would be entirely community-driven. People are already donating bits to creators, so let those donations affect the stream. It…

  4. For variety streamers, it would be wonderful to be able to put certain channel point rewards into folders that can be turned on and off with the flip of a switch.

    For example, I could put all my "Fallguys" rewards into a "Fallguys" folder. Then the entire folder could be turned on. When I play a different game, I could turn the folder off.

    With the current system, we have to go through a huge list of rewards turning each individual reward on and off when switching games. The end result is that many streamers just have rewards that don't…

  5. I think you should get channel points by watching the vod of a stream if you missed the stream itself because of work or living in another time zone.
    Of course you only should get points for recent vods and if you didn't watch the livestream.
    As I live in europe and some of my favorite streamers live in the US, I often can't watch the livestream, but watch most of the vods. I don't think it would harm anyone and if executed correctly it can't be exploited.

  6. 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…

  7. It would be awesome if we could group certain channel point items together (on the streamer dashboard) to allow for quick bulk activating/deactivating. Sometimes there are instances where I need to pause/deactivate a particular number of channel point redeemables due to the type of stream I'm doing (i.e. video game casual playthrough vs video game speedrun vs just chatting, etc.). This would allow for better overall organization and fine tuning of channel point items that are specific to a stream. Thank you!

  8. The option to RESET channel points would be nice, game I play EFT have something like seasons (wipes), in late game i letting people to ask for throw of grenade and other more or less expensive (in game) rewards, at the beginning of season (wipe) I would get poor in few seconds, so please let me reset points they have, so they will have to earn new ones for rewards
    Can you make that option for us?

  9. A channel point leaderboard

    I feel like this would be another fun inclination for viewers to stay in channels and to show who is most active in the communities.

  10. We have "Redemption Cooldown Time", "Limit Redemptions Per Stream" & "Limit Redemptions Per User Per Stream". Can we get "Redemption Cooldown Time Per User"

  11. IRC could send a USERNOTICE on any rewards obtained by the viewers.

    In that way we could automate some rewards without changing much to the most popular bot format : a IRC client without any Pubsub implementation.

    Current IRC format allows to automate custom rewards with mandatory text input via custom-reward-id.

    So we have to force text input for these rewards, and it's only an extra step forced to viewers. As this extra step is not necessary, and most Twitch user-related actions are handled by USERNOTICE events, it would fit nicely in this event.

  12. There should be a way for a streamer to GIVE channel points to specific viewers for doing things like winning a game or match, guessing a number, or any of the other kinds of things streamers already do to make their streams interactive.

    There are plenty of commands that utilize the "/" character to do all sorts of things easily from the chatroom, so I was thinking something easy like:

    /give-points 1000 username

    Simple, and it would instantly award the specified number of points to whomever is listed as the "username".

  13. Scenario: Twitch channel run by multiple people in a community where they centralize events. The channel meets all of the Affiliate requirements, however does not want to obtain Affiliate in order to avoid singing a single person's tax information to that community account. Is it possible to apply/gain the affiliate advantages such as Channel Points for this account? I suggest having an option somewhere to Apply.

  14. I haven't seen this issue being talked about anywhere, the only related support page I found says that only tier 1 emotes are unlockable with points, animated emotes are tier 1 so we should be able to unlock them with channel points.

    Also make tier 2&3 emotes unlockable with points too while you’re at it :)

  15. Have the option to make channel point redemtions a limitied number of uses per viewer as well as overall.

    At the moment it is hard to implement new ones because if you make the cost low then older viewers will spam it for all it's worth, make the cost high and new viewers can't partake.

  16. I'm in the process of developing a game designed to use channel points (CP) as a means for viewers to interact with it. I however have encountered a couple of minor issues that would be detrimental or unintended side effects of the game due to limitations in the channel point system.

    Firstly, there is no way to order CP rewards manually. Since the CP rewards are the viewers interface and resulting action, it would be much better to have them ordered by type of action rather then the cost of the action. In addition I wanted to use a "NOTES"…

  17. On Twitch Embed Players with video and chat (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/embed/everything), it is currently not possible to gain Channel Points while watching.
    It is possible to spend Channel Points with an embedded player/chat, so it seems necessary to obtain them while watching as well.
    Thanks!

  18. Greetings.

    My friend runs a very low-tier channel on twitch, and I'm the horrible computer janitor saddled with coding his insane demands. One of the rewards he offers is for people to become a "king of the stream". This doesn't do anything besides play a special sound, it's just a fun thing people can spend their points on.

    Of course, we all know the internet; the more meaningless something is, the more people want it. Often, this reward is sniped while my friend is still getting set up and people are filing in. This kinda ruins it for everyone else…

  19. The channel I mod for has a channel point prize for adding a song to a warm up playlist. It would be good if we had the ability to set keys and values on the message that gets sent for the channel point redemption message. So I could set like "reward: song" and then "url: {whatever the url is}" etc.

  20. Moderators have access to view the reward requests view of the twitch streams they moderate for and accept or reject the reward redemption. Can broadcaster have more control over this capability?

    While it is awesome our mods have the ability to do this, some moderators may exploit the ability to approve and reject requests, while rejection means the channel points go back to the person. For custom rewards this means they can keep accumulating points and redeeming them on custom rewards and then rejecting and giving themselves the points back.

    As broadcasters, we do not have the ability to see…
