  1. So I like the idea, but just a few tweaks. I like how the challenge can just pop up and we have a couple days to complete it, but upon completion can we save the boost for the future? I got the challenge on my "friday" so I felt compelled to make sure I completed it within the time frame forcing me to stream on my day off. I did complete it but then the boost happened right away. I would love to see it for the next stream where I can prepare for it, kind of like a front…

  2. I wish you and the team would stop trying to push features like this. Instead of having a "boost" feature, why not work on a better way to make smaller content creators to be discovered?

    Many have resulted in branching out to other social media and content creation platforms in order to funnel more viewers into twitch because of the over saturation of streams. Look at how addictive YouTube and Tik Tok are... Also look at how easy they are to just continuously browse and find new content. These are the things you should be focused on.

    Honestly, Small streamers…

  3. It would be really nice if you guys could provide us with an option to add/remove points from the users with some API, it would give us more options to create roulette/gamble and other interactive things where users can spend points and possibly gain points back as a price. As well for some in-game integrations.

  4. I would love to see a redeemable Channel Points reward that would be locked in at a certain amount that CANNOT be changed by the streamer, that could be redeemed for an actual subscription. It can be treated much the same as a Twitch Prime subscription, where it has to be renewed monthly, as well as supports the streamer as a normal subscription would.

    This could enhance viewer times for those less fortunate that may not be able to afford subscriptions to their favorite streamers, and reward them for spending time watching their favorite streamer.

    It can also pay off…

  5. Similar to how the streamlabs currency worked where you could use /give [user] 50 points

    Streamers should have the option to be able to give out channel points to viewers for community rewards. Eg winning a community game gives you 50 channel points. When you gift 5+ subs the streamer can spin a wheel of how many extra channel points they get etc The possibilities are endless.

  6. I will preface this suggestion that I am comparing twitches current channel point system to Streamelements since twitch feels very limiting and we could do so much more with it instead of resorting to a 3rd party to use channel points which makes it inconvenient for viewers. With that being said comments saying just use Streamelements isn't helpful, i'd love everyone's actual thoughts towards this.

    Currently Twitch's channel point system feels very limiting overall especially when compared to other channel point systems aka streamelements.

  7. Dear Twitch,
    I strongly believe that It would be a good idea to implement a fix into twitch making people eligible to collect channel points in multiple streams at the same time. By doing this, many people will have the opportunity to redeem rewards in their favourite twitch streamers stream by simply having a tab of their stream open when ever they are live. Knowing that you are able to watch something else or even another streamer/s and still collect channel points will overall make people happy. I have had my own experience with this as it has been very…

  8. I want to be able to offer the facility to hold an auction to in effect buy and sell plots within Cities Skylines.

    This would allow the viewers to effectively buy a home or business for themselves whilst I'm playing the game, so it would be named after themselves. This would create a fantastic involvement between viewers and the game.

    They could then go onto my discord and agree a price with other players in order to sell their property for a profit, but we'd need a system to transfer points between users...

    I feel this could be applied to…

  9. 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.

  10. It would be very helpful to know how many points my viewers have in my chat. Maybe as a sort of leaderboard so I can see who has the most points? This would definitely help me to judge how to price my rewards better, as I can see how many points people will have to spend on them!

  11. The idea behind a template would allow streamers to have Channel Rewards that are specific to the game they are playing. This would remove the hassle of enabling and disabling some of the rewards when switching games. Streamers can have a template for each game that they choose and set it up before streaming. When they stream a game it would automatically load that template when choosing the game.

  12. 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.

  13. Some of us live in countries were prediction isn't allowed, which honestly is annoying, since channel points are free, so not like it's gambling real money.
    (yes I know you get more cp when you support streamers but that's not just for channel points.)

  14. Add another stat, probably under total voters or highest bet, that shows what the average amount bet was per side. I think it would show which side is more confident about their pick by having a higher average amount bet than the other side.

  15. I feel like this does favor big streamers. Like, sure you can scale it this way or that. But if you have 0-5 viewers, this won't do anything for you. Perhaps if you could accumulate these points and use them to raid a small stream?

  16. Similar way to redeem points to highlight my message or any other 'free text' redemption. However it will have a drop down list of options to pick from. This can be set to required.

    This allows for a streamer to allow users to redeem points to select from a set of options. For example. A list of playable characters in the game for the chatters to select for the next match.

  17. I feel like a sort of channel pooling should be implemented. Like viewers of the stream can contribute point to a pool of point for a common goal (usually a streamers point rewards).

    I feel this should be implemented because sometimes it can be hard for viewers to reach a high point goal (that the streamer has set).

    Upvote if you want to see this!

  18. My idea is to make channel points more rewarding for both the streamer and viewers. My suggestion would be to have X amount of channel points unlocks X amount of bits, &/OR, X amount of channel points unlocks a one month subscription to the streamer the viewer is spending their valuable time watching and supporting. This idea would help smaller channels grow and it would also let the viewers support their favorite streamers/content creators just by spending time with them. Everyone could use a little positive boost and this would be a great way to show support and positivity. Thank…

  19. 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.

  20. The greater possibility of interaction with the streaming of channel points, through third-party programs, has led to an increase in the infinite possibilities of channel points buttons.
    To date the only way to make them active or inactive is to select them individually, as long as they are 1 or 2 it does not change much, but when they start to be more than 50 it becomes a bit problematic, so I would suggest the possibility of creating sub-categories, where it is possible to switch off the entire category, without however affecting the possibility of reactivating the single option.
