  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. We need to be able to receive "freezes", just like in duolingo, you can miss one day/stream and still be able to continue with your streak. It is a bit harsh having a high watch streak and miss one then you have to start over.

    For example: you could give one "freeze" for every 10 streams/days you watch. And then you could perhaps be able to store up to 3 freezes, then you would be able to miss 3 days/streams consecutively without losing your streak.

  9. Please fix or add as a Feature for Console Streamers to be able to view redeemed Channel Points, since so far this can only be reviewed via PC.

    We need a way to see when they have been redeemed, also on phone.

  10. Please add a user channel point cool down for ALL redeems. There's an issue with people coming into chat and one user redeeming every redemption at once. Say user 1 redeems, they now have to wait x amount of time before redeeming while user 2 can still redeem if they haven't in the set cooldown time.

    Adding a universal cooldown for all redemptions for users will help limit this spam.

  11. Simple: add a timer for redemption on the channel point redemption list list as well, so we don't have to click one and "oops! It's on cooldown! better go back to pick another".

    Additionally, show what will be the cooldown time on the redemption itself BEFORE they redeem and make it optional to hide the timer and cooldown, for streamers who wants people to "run to redeem it first".

    Additionally, correct this flaw: redemptions that have a text box input DO NOT SHOW A TIMER. So if someone set the timer to a long time, there's no knowing when the…

  12. Currently, phone verification would restrict unverified users from chatting in streams where that moderation feature is enabled.

    However, channel points rewards, especially ones that ask the viewer for a prompt (e.g. Ask a Question reward) can still be redeemed no matter if the user is verified or not.

    Therefore, a feature should be added when phone / email verification is enabled, where viewers who are not verified are no longer able to redeem any of the channel points rewards the streamer would offer (but may still get channel points if they continue to watch the stream).

    Additionally, this feature SHOULD…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Hello, I work with the upcoming big hit “BopStocks” which has previously been featured on channels like Jasontheween, and StableRonaldo. We are an organization that lets the twitch community invest in stocks based off twitch streamers with digital currency on our website. We would like to request our website being implemented into twitch’s channel point system and let people earn channel points based on their investments in twitch streamers stocks.

  16. Right now "Likely" and "Possible" ban evaders flagged as Restricted can still use Channel Point redemptions instead of typing in chat, like spamming redeems to be annoying or using a TTS redeem that will speak their unfiltered messaged

  17. This feature was nice when it first release but now all these extra popups for like a watching streak and stuff is getting in the way and some channels have several point redeems that scrolling is a chore. PLZ make this popup bigger or a separate window.

  18. Discord has ephemeral messages for specific actions that only the person doing that action can see.

    Having a similar system for users redeeming rewards would prevent the chat from spamming with the rewards where no one can now chat, but would also allow viewers to notice that rewards have been redeemed.

    Additionally, these messages could also be sent back to a user when a channel point reward is marked as unfulfilled. This would allow services using the API to send a message along when they are unable to fulfill the reward.

    An example of a rejection message with Crowd Control…

  19. A chat message on Twitch is limited to 500 characters. This same limitation is applied to redeems that requires the user to input text.

    Let the streamer be allowed to choose a custom max limit on a reedem like this, which is useful for when you redeem a phrase to be read by the streamer. When a limit like this is set, a character counter can be displayed when typing.

    Like for polls, there could possibly also be an option to be allowed to "purchase" additional blocks for points (done automatically). For example, say a phrase redeem costs 500 points,…

  20. Many streamers use this feature to react to something from the internet recommended by the audience.
    some streamers spend hours and hours reacting to videos, audios and even artwork created in the artistic environment.
    If this channel point were present as optional in real life custom points.

    It could be in this form.

    Name: React
    Description: I react to a video, music, art or the like that you send me
