    Its incredibly frustrating that this hasn't been implemented yet.

    This information is inherently public information, it is distributed out to every viewer of the stream. This isn't asking for a way to start predictions or polls without authentication, its just the GET (or the equivalent topic) that we want to be freely accessible.

    An example use case: When a prediction starts, a user pings a group of users in discord for those that stepped away for a moment. That's great and all, but if a user can do it without even being logged in, why can't an application do it with its own auth token (or even none at all)?

    Locking down these endpoints / topics is incredibly restricting for no reason. I guess that's what happens when the website doesn't use the same API that we have to. I guarantee this is why people are staying on older API versions for much longer than Twitch would like.

    This is one feature my users and I are really missing (I've already migrated from v5 to helix, as of a couple months ago).

    As for my use case: I used to show the profile banner when the streamer was online and the offline banner when offline. This is no longer possible, so instead there is just no image for online (the preview image doesn't work due to caching and the fact that my app knows about live state before the site does due to an obs integration)
