Absolutely agree this needs to happen.
Upon becoming an Affiliate, you should
1) Get to choose from a small pool of generated prefixes
2) Have one free request/review to adjust your emote prefix, should the generated options not suit you/your community.
These options should be both the default when achieving Affiliate, as well as replacing the autogeneration that follows a name change.
The existing system where Affiliate emote prefixes can only be changed after a name change - and even then, it is another gamble on what is auto-generated - is unfair and damaging to new channels, and needs to be scrapped with better actions.
I will add, there's nothing so demoralizing as looking forward to making emotes for your community, but having some keysmash numbers that you can never remember, numbers that have nothing to do with you, your brand, your content, etc, glued to every one, preventing people from using them in some cases. (Text-entry emotes tend to be faster than scrolling through lists of hundreds upon thousands of other channel emotes/public emotes/event emotes/etc)
Partners can pull rank on Affiliates to preserve the current reward hierarchy, surely.
I'm not even impacted as negatively as some of the others here. My handle is "Asinametra" and I go by "Asina" and "Sina" for short. My auto-generated emote prefix is "asinam" though. Which is at least just "the first 6 letters" of my name, and makes sense. But it's not intuitive to use, given my actual shortened names don't extend to the M in my name. Perhaps this is petty, but this has actively deterred me from setting up emotes for my channel at all.
