@BlueLava Ok, great!
a) My first thought was: Not for bots. IMHO, they should be a different badge between verified/known bots and its developers. So users can easily see, this is a bot (a pice of software), and this is a real person (a 3rd-party developer).
b) How would one qualify: In my opinion, it needs to be automated, but it also needs a review process. If I had the choise to define such a guidline, I would formulate it in a similar way:
"You qualify for this badge if you have a published twitch extension or a verified bot. You will also need to have an account that has agreed to the Developer Services Agreement (you agree to this, if you signed up on TwitchDev)."
My background to this opinion:
Currently, Verified Bots as well as Twitch Extensions have a review process on Twitch. This is to prevent someone from simply unlocking this badge for fun automatically.
Con: It does not currently take into account of 3rd-party websites (oauth apps).
c) The automatic system should be possible (on the part of the chat team), iirc: anykey.org has a sign-up form, where you can fill you twitch id/username and you get instant the global GLHF Pledge badge (i also have this badge).
I would be pleased about further feedback!
@BlueLava Is this suggestion intended for 3rd party developers? If yes, I really love you idea!

Theoretically, this process is a part of post production. Before the stream is uploaded to Twitch. I think the idea of having such a tool directly on Twitch is not bad.
Streamers should also comply with the Community Guidelines. If the stream is not family friendly, then the stream should be classified as mature.
I liked this idea very much, unfortunately I have no more votes to support it!
Usernames may be freed up for re-registration, without notice, if: are no longer active, meaning, there is no viewing or login activity associated with the account for at least 12 months.

I hope I was able to help you. I myself had to wait 12 months until my username was released.
I see it differently, I think it's great to support the streamers through advertising. I even see communities where there is an active demand for asking for advertising. Because advertising also finances the streamer. "this ad supports ..." is also true. And if you are not the opinion, then ask the streamer. He gets at least the money.
If you want to enjoy Ad-Free Twitch, you can get a subscription that allows you to watch Twitch free of ads. https://www.twitch.tv/turbo
Advertising is shown when you start watching the stream & at the end of the stream. The streamer is responsible for advertising during the stream. So if you always see ads between the streams, it's because the streamer has started the ad block. This can be started by the streamer in the dashboard (a partner has a trigger button there).
It is already possible.
What are the differences between the Partner and Affiliate benefits:
- All Streamers: As Available
- Twitch Affiliates: As Available, with priority access
- Twitch Partner: Full access to Transcode
It might be generally cool to be able to set a limit. BUT, it would make more sense to influence our politics than to restrict a platform like twitch. How can we continue to grow in Germany if we wish a feature to set a limit for an maximum of viewers?
Our federal states are currently discussing an amendment to the international broadcasting treaty for twitch streamers. As a result, "broadcasts on the Internet that regularly reach an average monthly audience of less than 20,000 viewers (or are mainly used to present and comment on the playing of a virtual game)" do not require admission.
