Customise amount of loyalty points received per dollar donated

The amount that is received per dollar donated is permanently 100, I think that this should be customisable so that it is worth donating if viewers already earn a high amount of points per minutes watched. It would also make it more flexible with the price of the rewards (so that people can't donate $10 to then redeem a $20 gift card) without lowering how many daggers viewers get per minute watched

    Admin Response

    We added this however we were instructed to remove this by Twitch as we are not allowed to encourage tipping through extensions. 

    Sadly we cannot implement this unless they change this.

    Well of course Twitch would say that because donations bypass their bits meaning Amazon is cut out of any of the money, go go figure.

    What Twitch doesn't understand is the measly amount partners make even with subscriptions on Twitch isn't enough to subsidize their lives, and donations are required so Streamlabs and other sources for "tips" will always be needed by streamers whether Twitch likes it or not.

     

    I have seen and understand the reason behind the admin response, but an still upvoting this because this exact sort of thing is WHY people want a chat bot from Streamlabs and NOT an extension to replace all those other chatbot currencies that incorporates directly into the Streamlabs systems including but not limited to alerts.

     

    And as such an important feature of "channel currency" the loyalty system will always be lacking this important feature of streamer control over their currency settings making the Loyalty extensions 3rd class in chat currencies for all sorts of things due to its lack of user configuration.
