  1. Just looking to simplify the rewards system with some preset options in a multiple choice setup as a way to mitigate some of the confusion and misunderstandings from typos and missing info when redeeming rewards that only have a few options to choose from

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. Instead of spending channel points to boost the stream, could the boost bar be filled a bit every time someone collects their bonus channel points? I love channel point rewards and I hate the idea of people choosing between boosting my stream or redeeming them for fun. This way people can fill the boost bar by actively watching, and still use their points for what they like.

  5. 1) The bonus channel point that shows up to click seems to be broken occasionally. Sometimes when it does show up and I redeem it, it shows up again right after, but says the points cannot be claimed, and cannot show up again until after I reload the stream.
    2) The community goal for contributing channel points doesn't show up at all, either in the rewards section or in the chat when someone contributes.

  6. As things stand right now, Twitch recommended rewards are not viewable on queue, specifically Highlight This Message. It would be nice if we had the option to view who redeemed those rewards in case you want to go and view their twitch pages.

  7. When you reach a certain amount of points, the only way to get more is to bet 250k each time. When you have a large amount, 250k is slow to make more points. The more channel points allowed to bet, the more in the pot for people to make.

  9. 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.

  10. For rewards that allow a message and also have a cooldown, they simply show 'out of stock', instead of a countdown for the cooldown like rewards without allowing messages. It would be useful if the user could see the cooldown for these types of rewards too.

  11. https://twitter.com/kcdotmp4/status/1363631643668353025

    Explains it with an image attached, but for those who don't want to click it; explanation below.

    Basically it's a page where you can filter out by ascending/descending order in which channels you have the most channel points in, but it also displays if you forgot to follow said channels and if they're currently live along with their stream titles and displayed stats such as viewers/duration of stream, just kinda like your following/browsing page, but condensed nicely with the addition of being able to sort by channel points.

    Because I have this really weird quirk about me where I…

  12. One thing bothers me about the Boost: people are suggested to me that I can't understand because I don't speak their language. It would be nice if these promotions were more specialized.

    For example, if someone often watches German & English streamers, that they are suggested to him.

    What should I do with a streamer if I can't understand him?

    Also, by being "Promoted" you don't see the viewership & you can't mark the person as "not interested" like you can with normal streams.

  13. If the mods/streamer pick the wrong option or misclick for a prediction, they should be able to refund all points to the original holders or even change the result.

  14. I have a varying set of channel point redeems for specific games, and having to grind through the list every day I stream isn't only tiring, but not having categories makes it harder to balance the amount of redeems that are available.

    To expand on this, if we were able to get categories both in our management and folders within the channel points redemption widget, it'd allow for much more creativity. As it stands, I am very afraid of putting in all the ideas I have due to the possibility that the amount of options might become overwhelming, not to…

  15. My community managed to raise the 63,750 channel points that were needed for the Twitch Boost (other channels a similar size to mine only needed to raise 20,000ish, but that's another matter)

    Basically, we raised the amount and I wasn't aware that the boost starts AS SOON AS you unlock it and for that stream only! I was only doing a very short dog walking stream, so when I ended my stream that was it. I had lost my boost. I was under the impression it was for a limited amount of time and that it would continue when I…

  16. First of all more options, only two is not the best for having the right competition to bet. 2 let the streamer put points on the plate, who guess right win it all!

  17. On paper, boosting a stream to help discoverability is great, but if larger streamers who absolutely do not need any form of help when it comes to being discovered are being given boosts, it absolutely defeats the purpose of this feature, which is to help us smaller streamers get some footing on Twitch, something that Twitch's own help article on it has admitted to.

    My proposal is that there has to be a cut off on who gets to be eligible for Boosts, where if a streamer has been accepted into the Partner Program or is very, very close to…

  18. During a boost, as it's described now, people can use up to 2,000 channel points. This isn't an issue for viewers with a lot saved up, but more casual viewers might have to choose between other channel point rewards and boosting. To fix this, making it so channel points spent on any reward during a boost contribute to the boost could help. This makes boosts feel less like a waste of channel points, and could make boosts more hectic and fun. However, if a streamer doesn't want this, they could maybe set a limit on the number of redeems that…

  19. The Twitch mobile app does not show channel point redemptions in chat..

    Since my second-monitor broke I have been forced to go back to Twitch app on my tablet for chat and I had to disable channel points to not look like an a**hole to my viewers.
    Cause I was unable to see whenever they redeemed anything for channel points.
    I am sure there are plenty of streamers who use their phone/tablet for their chat.

  20. For each channel point reward, I would like to be able to choose one or more games/categories for which it will be enabled. If I'm streaming a different game, I don't want those rewards to appear in the list for viewers.

    This will help streamers with game-specific rewards by removing the tedious task of manually enabling and disabling their rewards before each stream, and help viewers by removing clutter if the streamer chooses not to do that.

    If channel point folders/categories are implemented*, this feature should also be applied to those.
