  1. Our most common support request is about broken Channel Points.

    The problem happens when custom Channel Point names are changed.

    This is annoying because now streamers can't change the name to their local language or other personal preferences.

    If CP's receive a unique id, our Twitch extensions can communicate with that and this would provide streamers with more customisation options.

  2. There are a few great cooldown options for Channel Points redemptions, however I think it'd be fantastic if we could possibly have an option for an "Only available after stream has been online for X minutes/hours" as a possible cooldown option too.

    As an example I have a limited redemption to give my Doggo a treat, but if this gets redeemed right at the very VERY start of the stream, people that don't arrive at the very start miss out - and if I say 'thanks for the redemption, I'll do that later' it kinda feels rude to the redeemer,…

  3. Channel Point icons and reward icons currently make you upload 3 different versions of the same icon, like we used to have to do with emotes. Now we are able to upload a single image and have it auto-scaled to the proper size. Since this is clearly possible to implement, I don't understand why we still have to upload our channel point icons and reward icons 3 times.

  4. Add a role for twitch viewers in which they essentially manage predictions. It would be identical to how moderators can currently manage predictions, however, these users would not have the other permissions of moderator (timing out / banning / slow mode etc.)

  5. So I'm no expert in this sort of thing, so don't crucify me if there's any big problems with the idea but.

    Would there be any scope in making channel points more valuable, so that you could spend them on actual things - perhaps even a twitch browser shop where you could buy various cosmetics to enhance your name or badges, emotes too, or directly support your favourite streamers by buying products they offer with channel points too.

    I see this as having benefits for all parties, that's streamers, twitch and viewers too.

    Streamers would have more concurrent viewers because…

  6. It would be very useful to get for moderators to be able to accept/deny channel points redeems directly from chat without having to open the request queue or modview. Like a small button saying ACCEPT and DENY just below the redeem.

    For moderators who work with a lot of requests every hour this would mean managing the redeems a lot faster and easier.

  7. I would like to see a log of what I've spent channel points on, at least for larger redeems (> 10000 points for example), including the current status of the request (pending / fulfilled / refunded). Sometimes I spend a large number of channel points and it can take a while for the streamer/mod team to get around to fulfilling the request, for example adding a discord role for spending points.

  8. Allow the feature that links can only be posted through channel points. If someone were to post a link in the normal chat, it would not go through, however if they post it through a channel point redemption, it would go through.

    This feature would really benefit streamers that allow their viewers to use channel points to request videos to watch, if someone sends a link through normal chat it would not go through but if they send it through the channel point reward it would go through.

  9. A streamer I follow has this thing he does rarely where we establish "teams" behind different characters to show our support for them. Normally he has us change our user names to specific colors in order to show support, but a lot of the viewers dont like having to reset their color later so they dont participate.

    Is there any way we could have a badge after the name, or if not possible than replacing a badge like the cheer badge, with some basic color badges, even if just circles or squares? I am thinking just a simple symbol like…

  10. I'd like to see an option for streamers to make trivia questions for their chat. Chat can click an answer, and the people who guessed it right can get an amount of channel points that the streamer decides.

  14. A giveaway even that you can enter with channel points. Customization on the number of entries and cost of entry. This allows Streamers to do raffles for their bigger fans.

  15. This would make it much easier for channels to make use of channel points in more creative ways, currently most streamers are using a chat bot for points, and then channel points are almost useless

  16. Like many others I like to support multiple friends at once and have all their streams open at the same time. However, I can only get channel points in two of the channels which is fine but I would like to choose which channels I'm getting them in. There's some channels where idc about channel points and others where I do want to accumulate a lot of them in so it would be nice to just easily choose which ones I'm gaining them in.

  18. En gros le streamer à une barre de progression qui se remplit en fonction de ses critères(followers, subs, prime Loot, etc...) et une fois la limite atteinte, le streamer verse un nombre de points de chaîne défini(ex: 1000~1000000) qui est partagé entre les vieweurs dudit Chat!!!

  19. Personally I think its a pain in the butt to edit my channel points. I would love to see something similar to the emote library but for channel points. A colour library, image library and a preview. For some creators scrolling through lengthy lists of their channel points can be difficult to make visually appealing. some creators (like myself) take pride in cohesive branding across all of my platforms. Meaning I have colour coded branding and have taken HOURS to edit my points.

    Allowing creators to preview and save a colour library and image library to drag and drop onto…

  20. Channel points are great, but I miss one thing. I think that adding a time limit for one stream participant will significantly diversify the possibilities of points. I am annoyed when one person overuses an option at a time (e.g. he buys a drink of water several times), but if I could limit the possibility to e.g. 2 times an hour, it would make it much easier for me and maybe it would increase my involvement on the stream. in the fact that people specially colluded to buy such activities massively, because it increases their involvement and is a great…
