  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. Hello,
    Here is one of my suggestions for channel points. In the " Community " tab in the Creator Dashboard then in " Channel Points ", add a board where you can see the ranking of people with the most channel points. We as a streamer can manage users as reset, add or remove channel points. We could also set up an extension below the stream to put the channel point ranking in public.

    Thank you for taking the time to read,
    Gaming_RB

  4. 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

  5. Channel Points messages appear in chat, but don't show up in VODs, and aren't available in the Chat API. It would be good to at least have the messages appear in VODs to help provide context for what's happening, and even better if it was treated as another chat message, so it could show up in the chat API as well.

  6. 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.

  7. Additional emotes that cost channel points to use. You can buy a number of uses of an emote, and you'll only be able to use it that many times unless you buy more. Host sets the price, users get to flex their channel points and display their channel wealth in chat.

  8. It would be great to have a channel point redemption that allows you to mimic the roll of a die (aka: a random number generator; d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, d100, etc). As a channel point reward this could then be limited to once a day, once every X minutes, etc.

    This could be used just like a "spin the wheel" feature, where someone redeems it to make a decision for the streamer to act on.

    "What are we doing today?" random number between 1-100 "Ok, looks like we're doing XYZ" (discussing a certain topic, drawing a picture, 100…

  9. I run a custom interactive overlay that lets users spend points for in-game effects. Right now they can save up points from multiple streams and spend them all at once to get a big advantage. I'd love a setting that makes it more expensive for a user to redeem a channel point reward for each time they've done it during that stream — it'd encourage them to spread out their spending a little.

    For example, I could set the initial cost of a reward to 200, and the increment to 50. The first time in a stream that a user…

  10. Allow mods to be able to add comments/notes to reward redemptions. It may be that there are multiple steps behind the processing of a reward so being able to add a note may be useful for other mods to review

  12. A System where you can
    - see who has which number of channel points
    - give / remove a certain number of channel points of a certain user / user group

    The nice thing is that you can make giveaways of channel points or can put them as a prize for tournaments, esspecially if you don't have money to do otherwise.

  13. I am creating a game for an affiliate broadcaster that allows channel point redemptions to trigger in game events. It's working exactly as intended except for one small problem. Every redemption is listed the chat a it's drowning out chat's ability to communicate with each other. There should be a way to not display activity feed in chat

  14. Channel points are just another pointlessly flashy, distracting feature on Twitch. Please give viewers the choice to opt-out of earning channel points if they want to.

  15. I think the community channel points feature could be expanded to be a battle system. Team A vs Team B or idea 1 vs idea 2. For example I wanted to do a channel point community battle for Horde v Alliance. First team to get XYZ points wins. I had to enter this manually but would have been awesome to be automatic like the other immunity challenge. Or a tug of war type system would be really great. Could be used for many incentives/ideas across channels.

    TLDR: channel point battles

  17. Add the ability for viewers to exchange points among themselves. For example, create a market where you can buy or sell the points of each streamer for money (or for bits) + transaction fee for a twitch and streamer like in steam market. (because streamers set unique rewards with too many points, and the market gets the opportunity to earn these rewards and make a profit for the twitch and streamer )

  18. 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

  19. What if twitch added the ability to add your own channels points and setup for them on mobile right from your device that would be so useful for bloggers who film using their phones.

  20. 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
