  1. Editors can be editing the channel point menu. The Streamer that I Editor, don't have time for channel point prizes and challenges. I World be helpful if Editors have the same interface as the Streamer.

  2. As a streamer I often miss places and redemptions for channel points while im fighting a boss. But I never miss a follow, subscribe, raids or bits because I have loud alerts to tell me when it happens. I think all streamers could appreciate the option to set a short sound alert for each channel point in the channel point edit selection. Like a box you can check to add an alert to that specific reward redemption so streamers dont have to go way back in chat or in the feed to look for them or in my case remind…

  3. Now that Point Rewards can be created, updated, or deleted via the API streamers may be unaware (or simply forget) that an integration with their account is set up to modify point rewards.

    An integration could change something on behalf of a streamer, and they may not know what is making that change.

    A "Managed by XXXX App" could be added to the point reward page, showing the name of the application that updated that reward.

  4. Just looking to simplify the rewards system with some preset options in a multiple choice setup as a way to mitigate some of the confusion and misunderstandings from typos and missing info when redeeming rewards that only have a few options to choose from

  5. Channel Points to pay for additional Chat Poll votes like bits, exactly what it says on the tin! Right now the polls are a really fun feature and the channel points have a lot of potential in being integrated with an already existing feature, this time giving newer viewers an incentive to stick around instead of only favoring the viewers with money.

  6. 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.

  7. The ability to create custom rewards and have those rewards tied to either specific game or specific subscription would be neat.

    Basically have global rewards that apply to all games then have some specific points that only appear/occur when playing certain categories (games).

    Same with roles. We could create custom rewards that would only apply to VIPs, Followers, or to Subscribers, etc.

  8. For some sorts of rewards, it would be convenient to allow someone to redeem the same thing more than once. If the user could choose a quantity, this would be extremely convenient and useful.

    Example: Obtain tickets in a giveaway using channel points, for 100 points per ticket. Rather than have people spend 100 points at a time, spamming chat with each individual redemption, someone could choose to spend 1600 points for 16 tickets.

  9. It would be great to have the ability as a Mod to disable spending channel points during a specific situation. I have been noticing in the Role Play community that when alot of hate comes into the channel and we go into sub mode only. The haters will wait until they have enough points to post a message in sub mode just to throw Salt or the spam some of the cheaper options to distract the streamer. I know that there is emote only mode but that also feels like a punishment for the subscribers that are not doing anything…

  10. Change the Page Title from just "Twitch" to "Twitch Channel Rewards" on the channel rewards popout page.

    At the moment streamers using scenes with windows capture in OBS, SLOBS etc can't have multiple window sources open since the page title in the window is just a generic "twitch". It needs something unique we can match the title to so we can use it for a scene whilst streaming to show the redeemed custom rewards live on stream.

  11. Streams would not be possible without mods. Since mods are so important for a channel they should get a “bonus” of having their channel points come in faster and it would stack with the multiplier if they are currently subbed.

  12. We need to have real control of the channel points. Give, remove and block channel points to users.

    1º/ To reward behaviors and be able to develop our own "CP" earning systems. Minigames, etc. With unique style.

    2º/ To penalize its misuse, and have the ability to deny points to problematic spectators.

    3º/ To make the channel points system compatible with hundreds of applications that contribute games and add-ons awarded with points.

    4º/ And to be able to transfer all existing Loyalty systems for many years (StreamLabs, StreamElements, etc, etc) to the twitch channel points system.

  14. This situation has come up a few times now where a new mod (or a not paying attention new mod) would clear the entire queue or accidentally clear rewards which were not completed.

    A history of completed/refunded redemption for the current stream would save some searching in chat to see who redeemed what and trying to figure out what was missed.

  15. I would like to see Twitch implement a Channel Points command. For example "/cp **" where ** is the name of the reward.

    We make extensive use of the Channel Points system and have about 40 rewards. Our regulars have said that it is sometimes difficult to find the reward they are looking for in a timely manner in order to affect what happens on-stream through a 3rd party application called Lioran Board.

    Channel Points are a great tool for viewer engagement, but the method of finding a reward needs to be easy and streamlined. Not clunky and inconvenient.…

  16. Twitch streamers should have the ability to change the highlight color of the "highlight message channel points feature." This would be a setting that allowed full control over what color the highlight would be. If the highlight was a dark color, the text would be light and if the highlight was light, the text would be dark. This allows chat to look slightly different from stream to stream, allowing for a more unique look to chat. It's makes chat slightly more personalised to the streamers liking.

  17. Right now, all custom events require being fulfilled in the rewards manager, however, I believe there would be cases where this process would not be necessary. A number of people, such as myself have already worked on programatically tying these events to do actions elsewhere. Instead of having to, manually or automatically marking these off through the API, it would make more sense if these events did not have any entries within the queue

  18. Would be great to have a running tally (lifetime totals) of Channel Point Rewards, perhaps in the left hand bar underneath the "current requests" amount, like this:

    AMA
    3 requests
    12 overall (or 12 lifetime? Something like that)

    That way we could easily see which rewards are popular, and which ones we might want to swap out for something else.

  19. Right now a user has to first click on a reward to see the cooldown timer. It would be much more convenient and better UX if the user could see which rewards were available, which ones are on cooldown and what the cooldown timer is inside the channel point rewards window.

  20. I have a suggestion on how to Making the Most of Channel Points. Example Viewers buy League Of Legends Skin Shard with 50k points which you have eearned watching/betting with the viewers
    I think this will be a positive impact on every party:
    -Streamer tools more Viewers/watch time.
    -Viewers get in games loot.
    -games devs/streamer relations.
    -twitch will have a way to retake those points back.
