unfair discrimination of emote approval
I have been affiliated for almost a year now, and I am getting frustrated with how emotes are being rejected or approved. I seriously do NOT understand how Twitch can allow gasm emotes with drool, a hand slapping a butt, etc for so many other streamers (seemingly those that make Twitch more money than us smaller streamers) yet I have an emote that is Indiana Jones whipping a peach that is rejected and I even made my channel for mature audiences only. Obviously we all know, as adults, what my animated emote is alluding to but it is WAY less obvious than emotes that have ACTUAL butts and things like that. It seems SERIOUSLY unfair. Not to mention there are basically pornstars (IE Amouranth) that are allowed to wear revealing bikinis while like on Twitch and doing EXTREMELY suggestive actions but they make Twitch tons of money so it's clear that there is financial favoritism occurring which, to me and many others, is messed up and not okay. I DEMAND that if you are going to have extreme rules, then they MUST be applied to every single person on Twitch, period.
Please advise and let me know how I can KNOW without doubt what emotes I upload are going to be rejected (and do not copy and paste TOS to me because it's not that cut and dry since some people are allowed more explicit emotes and media and some aren't), because I will employ legal action if I am suspended or get flags on my account over trying upload emotes that continually get rejected unfairly compared to others which is a clear act of discrimination.
There are a lot of emotes like nukidance, which are fun and interactive that chat can use. First of all, dancing does not involve having statue hips. I'm aware that mosesxperez got his emote removed that was like this, and if it truly was inappropriate, all emotes like his would be removed. I find nothing inappropriate about these emotes, and therefore content creators should be able to have these emotes in their inventory or none at all. It's just discrimination hidden behind the explanation of "inappropriate". I also think that's a terrible message to send for such a culturally diverse platform.
I am here to add to this. I submitted a PePeBussers emote, which is available on BetterTTV for use on Twitch. My emote was rejected stating something along the lines of, "moving buttocks not allowed." Now that this rejecton is on my account, my free follower emotes are removed until I have to complete another 60 Streams before I have the option again. Many popular Affiliates as well as Partners have emotes of butts, butts being slapped, or cheeks moving. The double-standard is extremely unfair, especially considering... Pepe is a frog.
Wow, I can't believe this is even a thing... I've been shocked to see the amount of sexually suggestive emotes that have slipped through the cracks, and now they're ***** the whip on this one? Excuse the pun but seriously... Get it together twitch!
I stand behind this 100%
