Questions about removing Exclusivity.
My name is Andy Champlin. I run the Acme_Studios account on your platform. I was excited to hear that you guys are now allowing simulcasting in an attempt to remove exclusivity and that seems to be where you stopped as I read a few of your new rules concerning this that you didn't exactly remove exclusivity because I am not allowed to relay chat from other platforms, and I am not allowed to advertise my other channels. One, my brother and I want engagement from our viewers, and we don't believe that they should be restricted to just the one platform they reside on or be forced to go to another platform just to respond to that individual when they read a comment on stream. It is easier to respond to them directly since their comment will relay to the other platform. Allowing this is removing exclusivity or otherwise what is the point of removing exclusivity and allowing simulcasting if my viewers are limited to who they can engage with. You benefit from engagement. Not only that, and I have to contact YouTube about this as well, why can we not see the viewers who are lurking. They are supporting the channel and platform as well. Some of them watch the streams by listening to the streams in the background or they have anxiety that prevents them from interacting and I want to know that they are watching my streams because they are just as important as everyone else. If we are removing exclusivity, then we need to make sure everyone is included when they watch the streams. Everyone's viewership counts whether they are engaging in the stream or not. These are just as much a benefit to your platform since ads play regardless is they are engaged or not.
