Path to Partner/Verified for Bots?
Some major bots have Partner/Verified status.
It would be great to have a documented path for other developers to submit their bots for Partner/Verified badges.
0cpm is the channel type where they have some of the benefits of Partnership, such as verified tick, access to transcode, channel points, etc... but lack the monetization options such as no sub button, no control over ads (ads still run, but it's like an un-monetized channel where the broadcaster receives no revenue). An example being twitch.tv/twitch
From my understanding, the reason it's not documented anywhere is because it's not publicly a service Twitch provides and is not something you can apply for. Those that have a need for it would have a business relationship with Twitch and work closely with them and may have a need of it for other reasons. For example in the past I've worked with Twitch to get charity streams 0cpm, or esports events, things that have legitimate need for the status.
0cpm is not directly a Dev related thing, so wouldn't really be appropriate to document on the dev site (I'm not sure if Helix even references it any more, as it's not something 3rd parties need to be concerned about), and as Barry has mentioned isn't a thing that is given like it was in past years and things have become more controlled.
There's zero documentation on what "0CPM" is. First time I've ever heard of that.
I'm just raising a uservoice. Us normal users have no idea why some bots have ticks. It's a valid question. Those who "know how to get it" is great for them.
So like I said, it would be great to have a documented path for it, so us normal users know if it's something to pursue. So sorry for asking for documentation.
What's your use case for needing Partnership/0CPM?
In most cases, the bots that need partnership/0cpm, know how to get it, and those that don't know usually don't have legitimate reasons to need it.
Certainly not all are former staff specials. It's natural for someone to see a lot of major bots have partner and wonder how they can try to get it as well.
That was "past staff member special"
It's not a normal thing and isn't given out anymore
