  1. change hype train and chat poll popups to not increase chat size and decrease stream size unless interacted with or add an option to not have that happen.
    Change hype train and chat poll popups to Open the chat and then do the same when the chat is closed/stream is in fullscreen mode. Both issues are infuriatingly obnoxious that should never have been a thing to start with.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  5. 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.

  6. This situation has come up a few times now where a new mod (or a not paying attention new mod) would clear the entire queue or accidentally clear rewards which were not completed.

    A history of completed/refunded redemption for the current stream would save some searching in chat to see who redeemed what and trying to figure out what was missed.

  7. It would be great to have the ability as a Mod to disable spending channel points during a specific situation. I have been noticing in the Role Play community that when alot of hate comes into the channel and we go into sub mode only. The haters will wait until they have enough points to post a message in sub mode just to throw Salt or the spam some of the cheaper options to distract the streamer. I know that there is emote only mode but that also feels like a punishment for the subscribers that are not doing anything…

  8. When you become mod of a channel you cannot see when a prediction got started. If another mod started a prediction or even if you started a prediction you sometimes just don't remember when. A start-timestamp would be very useful - as you have one as a normal user.

  9. Would be great to have a running tally (lifetime totals) of Channel Point Rewards, perhaps in the left hand bar underneath the "current requests" amount, like this:

    AMA
    3 requests
    12 overall (or 12 lifetime? Something like that)

    That way we could easily see which rewards are popular, and which ones we might want to swap out for something else.

  10. The ability to create custom rewards and have those rewards tied to either specific game or specific subscription would be neat.

    Basically have global rewards that apply to all games then have some specific points that only appear/occur when playing certain categories (games).

    Same with roles. We could create custom rewards that would only apply to VIPs, Followers, or to Subscribers, etc.

  11. Mods should have the ability to create a prediction and use their channel points to start it with points already in the pool to encourage the participation from chat. As it is now a mod has to bet on it to add any points and they can obviously only bet on one side. This has come up many times in smaller streams that I mod for where only one person or only one side gets bet on (example win/lose and everyone picks win) the result is no gain or all lose. My make shift "fix" is to bet against them…

  12. For some sorts of rewards, it would be convenient to allow someone to redeem the same thing more than once. If the user could choose a quantity, this would be extremely convenient and useful.

    Example: Obtain tickets in a giveaway using channel points, for 100 points per ticket. Rather than have people spend 100 points at a time, spamming chat with each individual redemption, someone could choose to spend 1600 points for 16 tickets.

  13. Since the bcaster has infinite channel currency in his/her own channel, there's no actual cost to unlocking modified versions of emotes - but it still has to be done, in your own channel. If I'm in another stream's chat and want to post the sunglasses version of an emote, I have to first go to my own chat, unlock it, and then come back. Please give broadcasters permanent access to the modified versions of their own emotes.

  14. I have noticed a trend where people tend to wait until the last second in order to dump a massive amount of points into a prediction. I understand that this is part of the risk, however I frequently get invested at a low chance of success just to have someone else drop 4~10x the entire result pool I just entered. I agree with not allowing people to withdraw or swap, but it just doesn't feel good to suddenly risk 10k or 50k for a mere 1.05x payout. I propose two solutions:

    First option is to add a toggle to the…

  15. 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.

  16. predictions just slow down my stream quality. Even moreso, the more people there are in it. The harder it is to watch the stream. Predictions takes more CPU usage than the stream itself.

  17. Would be awesome to trigger predictions with commands, so i dont have to alt+tab everytime i want to set or end a prediction. Something like !set prediction [Question][Yes/No][Time]. So we could just make a hotkey and start them ingame and everywhere.

  19. Twitch streamers should have the ability to change the highlight color of the "highlight message channel points feature." This would be a setting that allowed full control over what color the highlight would be. If the highlight was a dark color, the text would be light and if the highlight was light, the text would be dark. This allows chat to look slightly different from stream to stream, allowing for a more unique look to chat. It's makes chat slightly more personalised to the streamers liking.

  20. A few proposals to improve them:
    1. If the streamer wants, give them the ability to create emote purchases that lasts for longer than 24 hours (templates should be: 1 day, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month)
    2. Allow the users to re-buy emote remotely up to 1 week after it expires or bookmark it for the case they want to re-buy it at any other time.
    3. The above should also apply for modified emotes and their respective modification (exception: seasonal/temporary modifications)
