      @Moi A Because the policies that twitch is putting in place, is pushing certain streamers to leave the platform and find some other social media to make money off of, which in turn, limits the amount of content that would otherwise be outputted by streamers on twitch, causing less viewers to participate.

      it is a rule in capitalism: then you become big enough you can abuse your customers as you want. Problem is that many people maybe ok with it because they didn't see better way or get used to it. Quality of service/product is not a priority on such scales.

    • Tech Freak
      Tech Freak 2 months ago +1

      ​​​@Death Valley Gaming what about Clip-Share? In fact, you should multistream to as many platforms as possible, even platforms you wouldn't think your target demographic would be on. I'll give you a perfect example of this so you'll see why it's worth it: You've probably heard of the game Genshin Impact. Anyone were familiar with that game has also probably heard of the game they made after that called star rail. Now, these are very popular games with a lot of young people playing them, and one particular meme from Star rail was one of the characters Japanese attack voice lines "KURU KURU!" Somebody took those adorable voice lines (which were already a meme because of how freaking cute they were) and vocoded it over the Super Mario world ending theme, specifically the part that you hear in the "pet the X" memes. That video currently has 2.2 million views on Clip-Share. Guess where the video came from? Facebook. That's right, FACEBOOK spawned a viral meme for a popular gocha game. If you actually care about growing your audience, stream everywhere at once, Clip-Share, TikTok, kick, and yes, even Facebook.

    This is informative, and unfortunate.
    I deleted my account one year ago. I missed out on tens of thousands of dollars as a result, but it was worth it to give the middle finger based on how badly they were treating loyal creators that spent a decade on the platform at the time. This feels validating, and hopefully more people do the same.
    I stand with destiny!

    If Kick can iron out whether or not they want to allow porn or not (which was their main selling point) and move on to other points of the site, Kick could really steal a huge chunk of Twitch's userbase.

    • LuNa4Death

      Porn isn't allowed. That was just misinformation being spread by certain people Kick has been banning people for violating the tos as of recently. The difference between Kick and Twitch is they won't ban you for things you can't control or accidents. I.E a nip slip or accidentally clicking a link and nudity popping up.

    • Monkibro

      Yeah. I'm waiting for the platform to mature a little bit, figure out exactly what it wants to do and be, and I'll be setting up to jump ship.

    I remember when Clip-Share went through policy hell in 2015-17 with demonitization and almost entirely banning swearing and people started moving to twitch once it started advertising it’s less strictness and now it’s the opposite twitch is being money hungry and streamers are moving to Clip-Share for near risk free streaming

    What they don't understand is that they are nothing without the streamers, these aren't employees that you can just take away from them and add it to your profits, creators have their own businesses and brands, as twitch you're only a platform. A business like Amazon should understand that!

    It's really shitty of them, instead of innovating, they are all making their platforms virtually unusable

    I'm not much of a Twitch watcher and NEVER a game channel. However, even i know that's a ridiculously f*cked idea if that policy update is something they strictly adhere too. Especially, after they adjusted the way they pay.
    Whenever someone is doing something illegal to make money, I've always said:
    1. Never get too greedy.
    2. Never get too relaxed/ comfortable in the way the biz is going.
    However, quite often those rules can apply to any legit biz as well

    Twitch streamers need to be very careful about getting into long contracts from now on. Twitch could introduce some random restriction that prevents them fulfilling their end of the contract and some corptrash will be able to sue the streamer.

    What eventually kills platforms like this is that the legal and corporate jungle you have you navigate eventually make it too difficult to navigate that it 1) Prevents new people joining it and 2) Makes people leave it. In the end every step becomes a fight as you cut your way through the bush with a machette only to have to fight an anaconda and when you're tired and frustrated and bleeding out you realize the bushes behind you has grown back and now a T-Rex is chasing you with a giant strap-on.

    Frankly, if Clip-Share decided to actually _try_ at making their streaming section more navigable and fleshed out instead of just occasionally bribing Twitch streamers to switch over, Twitch wouldn't stand a chance. Every year I witness Twitch sink deeper and it perplexes me why Clip-Share won't invest more time into improving their streaming interface.

    See the bounty board sounds like a great idea for upstarting streamers and what they should have done instead of trying to force already successful streamers that don’t need them for brand sponsorships to take part in stuff like that- is incentivize newer streamers to part take in it by actually helping them grow their presence Until their also big enough to do their own thing rinse and repeat with another person.

  • Boomer Gonzales
    Boomer Gonzales 3 months ago

    This is a stepping stone. As you said, this is a means to force every streamer to get their sponsorship through Twitch. However, eventually Twitch will adopt a policy similar to the UFC where if a sponsor is not directly affiliated with Twitch, you are not allowed to stream in association with that sponsor.
    For context, the UFC adopted a similar policy where a fighter can only dedicate a small percentage of their kit to endorsements. A short time later, UFC fighters had to adopt a policy where a fighter was banned from endorsing competing companies who were otherwise directly affiliated with the UFC company brand. I. E. a fighter endorsed by Under Armour or Nike could no longer where Under Armour or Nike kit because the UFC as a company now has a contractual sponsorship with Reebok. Refusal to adhere to UFC policy invalidates any agreement to fight in the UFC forthwith.
    So imagine for a moment that a game streamer could no longer stream or had to suspend their stream because it was found out that this poor streamer was using a PC built by CyberPower, or Origin, or Digital Storm; and they violated Twitch policy because company policy clearly states that in order stream you must adhere to the company endorsement and be using a PC made by Acer or maybe even Apple; and this just steamrolls down the line. To what boom mics you can use, to what headsets can be used, what books livereader's are allowed to feature; all the way down to what chairs you are allowed to sit in should you even decide to continue live casting instead of Vcast.
