  1. A couple of ideas to improve the way channel points work.

    • Ability to group rewards, and possibility to bulk enable or disable them by group / use case would be if the streamer has rewards that are tied to a game, such as selecting a character, so they can easily switch available rewards when they stop playing

    • More API control over channel points (change active and inactive rewards, approve or decline rewards).

    • Possibility to manually reward viewers with channel points, change modifiers for subs / VIPs, etc.

    • Adding possibility to add cooldowns to redemptions

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. I work as a graphic designer for a streamer who exclusively likes to focus on his streams and content. It's a pain for him to have to deal with updating panels, emotes, badges, channel points, etc.

    Could Twitch provide access to mods & editors to do that kind of work?

  5. 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.…

  6. 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.

  7. Several streamers have similar redeems of the same cost. For example, to play different sounds, to apply different voice-modifiers, to activate different light-effects, to change the avatar's outfit.

    Streamers who have many option available, it will create a very long list of redeems, making the list cumbersome to go through. So an idea is that all redeems of the same type is grouped together into a single redeem, which sub-redeems, where you set the price for the group, and all sub-redeems have the same price.

    This would not only make the list less cluttered and easier for watchers to go…

  8. I would love the ability to tie similar redeems to a group to share a global cooldown. Example: i have two redeems thats change my model both on 5min cooldowns. If someone redeems one it starts a timer on my side but if someone redeems the other during that it is lost.

    Basically i'd like a redeem "group" so if any redeem is made in the group, all redeems in the group are put on cooldown.

  9. I would like more channel points settings:

    1. make Community Challenge without an expiration date. Or make a separate section as a "Points Goal". Let's say if you get a certain number of points then there will be something. Essentially the same system, but long-term.

    2. Give viewers the opportunity in the rewards themselves to enter the number of points he wants to spend. For example, to compile the top games on the stream. And the viewer himself will add how many points he wants to add. Instead of the streamer creates several rewards with a fixed number.

  10. Hello to all the twitch community, I had an idea for the channel points. I thought of a channel point that would be called "first" and that the followers could spend their points to get it first quickly. When they get the channel point first they would also get a temporary badge to indicate that they are the first to arrive on the live. The channel point would be available once per streamer for a single viewer.

    As for the developers on twitch, you just have to set up the temporary first badge and that's it. The twitch community could…

  11. The redemption cooldown time is fantastic but I think we need a 'seconds' option in the drop down menu along side 'minutes', 'hours' and 'days'.

    For those of us that, for example, wish to have a 30 second cooldown on channel point redemptions

  12. 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.

  13. There is a limit of 2 streams that collect channel points per user. Many times I would like to view another stream(s) without it affecting the 2 streams currently collecting channel points. It would be good to have the option to toggle a channel points collection option so that the 3rd stream doesn't collect points and doesn't affect the 2 other streams that I do want to collect channel points for. I'd like to be able to choose which 2 streams collect points and which don't.

  14. I've personally found great difficulty creating anything significant out of channel points simply because there isn't a way to be reliably notified when a prize has been redeemed. If they functioned in a similar way to Followers or Subscribers where it's API can be accessed, this could improve upon its function significantly.

  15. 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

  16. Hey, my Idea is rather simple. Give the viewers the possibility to hide the "Watch Streak" notification. It takes up ALOT of space in the Channel Rewards Section.

    PS: i checked the recommendation of disabling it in the Channel points section of the Dashboard, but thinking about it, that is not an option every streamer wants to take and the watch streak notification in that section is rather useless anyway.

  17. Allow viewers to disable watch streak notifications. The watch streak notification covers the channel point redeem options unless you share it, and its super annoying. There's no way to remove that and it makes navigating the channel point redeems more difficult than it already is.

  18. Voy a explicarlo en español y luego intentaré traducirlo al inglés, para que de este modo la gente pueda entender correctamente cuál es mi sugerencia y creo que es más que necesaria que esté implantada en twitch.

    Comenzaré con un ejemplo:
    Streamer está haciendo directo y uno de sus moderadores canjea puntos que le obligan a hacer gimnasia.
    Le envía 10 veces lo de hacer gimnasia y el streamer se ve obligado a hacerlo puesto que el usuario ha gastado puntos.

    Termina el directo y el streamer en los minutos después de finalizar el directo, va a la lista de…

  19. It would be great, for special redeems that are rarely bought because of their expensive price for example, to have the option to "annouce" the redeem in chat so they stand out
    For example you could have redeems such as "end stream" for 500k points be announced so everyone notices it immediately

    This option would be chosen by the broadcaster in the channel point settings

    here's a proof of concept as to how it could look (comparing a normal redeem to an annouced redeem) : https://i.imgur.com/h8XMf0c.png

  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.
