    I'm having a hard time thinking odfthe use case for the new VIP badge with the way it is veing implemented. Many streamers I follow would insist that all of their viewers are VIPs. Even if you are thr type of streamer who thinks that's oversentamental and cheesy, Im not sure having a single badge with the same single title is the best way to tab community members who deserve recognition.

    Even the examples given in the announcement would benefit from more flexibility. What sounds better: "You always bring energy to chat, have a VIP badge" or "You always bring energy to chat, heres a badge promoting you to Vice President of Chatroom Hype Operations". Just in the small group of stteamers I watch, I can think of a few badge titles more useful than "VIP":

    "I won a giveaway and all I won is this" badge.
    "The List"
    "King/Queen of Puns"
    "Whisper Buddies" (our communitys way of giving chatters someone to talk to about spoilers instead of spoiling streamer/chat)
    "Double Showcase Winner"
    "I Actually Won More Than A Quarter In Deal Or No Deal"
    "Speedrunner/Commentator" for speedrunning marathons to designate, well, speedrunners/commentators or even previous tourney champions

    I just feel like only having "VIP" badges, at best, means you're almost but not quite highlighting what someone dies foe the community, and ar worse it leaves people left out and begging for or oitright demanding a badge.

    This would be a ton of fun! Maybe have an option to let the streamer set the list of potential /scatter targets (to do actual team wide raids), I want to know Im sending my community to safe harbors (or at least people I like)

    Or even just some tag- or viewer count-based filters for potential landing places. Dont wanna get too crazy up in here

    As a viewer, why do I want to watch a non-live VOD that I don't have control over, when there's so much actually-live content on the platform to watch? As a streamer, why would I want to go live when I'm not live? And if I *do* want to go "live" but not be live, why is that the forced, only option rather than an opt-in feature? I can think of good ways to use the entire premiere feature set, but absolutely none of them apply to me.

    What's frustrating is that the features the premiere system 'grants' us were things we were *already able to do.* The only new feature is the added video countdown to start the VOD, and even if most people wanted it, even if it looked great, that is a bad trade-off for just being able to upload content without the bells and whistles.

    What's even more frustrating is that premieres don't even grant streamers a new feature set. We could already do what premieres do! Rather than force an upload to be a "premiere" and literally *blocking live content* during the premiere, a streamer could simply announce a viewing party for the new uploaded content, then, either A) Go live and stream the video, or B) use the VODCast function at start time -- which also pushes out a "live" notification. The end result is that streamer and viewers are all in control of the situation, and everyone is there to see the new, uploaded, non-live content. If viewers want to be different and watch it on their own or go look at the ending of the new content, that's on them -- and certainly not a good enough reason to *completely eliminate normal uploads.*

    I understand that even with YouTube's new features, the biggest draw to Twitch is that we're LIVE and pushing LIVE content and advertising LIVE events helps drive up ad clicks. That doesn't mean when I upload something that I want to go live though -- if I wanted to go live, why wouldn't I just go live? Why would I go not-live-live? Why should I feel guilted into staying around to not stream live just because I wanted to upload a clip?

    Again, if I wanted to make a big event around uploading and premiering new non-live content, that isn't that incumbent upon me to market it? There were already tools available to do that with! Now everyone, whether it fits their content stream or not, is forced into a premiere system that is clunky at best. Now, if I need to use my local record of a speedrun due to dropped frames or a disconnection, I have to wait for my premiere to finish before I can even link it for submission to a leaderboard, otherwise whoever is verifying the time won't be able to actually watch the vod, they'll have to watch it "not-live live" as the premiere. That could be a 2-4 hour wait just to go back and make sure I didn't start the timer late at the start of the run. And am I supposed to just sit in chat for those two hours in case someone comes by? Even if I was a big-time mega-popular streamer where that is a likely scenario, I would go live if I wanted to be live. Uploading a clip of something I may have literally *just done* doesn't mean I want to sit through it again -- I probably want to relax and celebrate my new accomplishment.

    And why subjugate the content as a "past premiere?" Why would I want to watch a "past premiere," it's sounds old, it sounds bad, it sounds like someone is trying way to hard too just say "VODs," as if their VODs are way different than VODs on any service. You can watch a VOD anywhere, but only on Twitch can you watch a video that premiered on Twitch in the past! That's ridiculous and we all know it. Again, if I want to call them "Past Premieres," you can name playlists! Same functionality without forcing everyone into it packaging their content the same way as everyone else.

    If I want help marketing and producing my content I'm OK asking for it. Stop forcing me into the same marketing tactics and nomenclature as, quite literally, everyone else on Twitch.
