Refined affiliate system.
Having an affiliate system like Twitch now has would allow Mixer to grow as a website, first off, the ability to allow people to subscribe to their favourite streamer (once they have met the required amount of follows/views to become an affiliate) would help both smaller streamers and Mixer itself, as Mixer would be able to take a fraction of the money (just like how its done with partners).
Secondly, allowing affiliates will promote the use of advertisements on channels prior to viewing the stream, running an advertisement where the money made from the advertisement is split between Mixer and the streamer, would allow Mixer to generate more income to then further the site and allow it to evolve and grow, and it would also assist the streamer financially.
The use of an affiliate system will also help streamers that are often overshadowed by the larger streamers to be noticed, as we can all agree, there are some excellent streamers who cannot quite get the same level of publicity as the larger partnered streamers. A sub section similar to up and coming could showcase these affiliates to give them more publicity.
I can see an issue arising between partners and affiliates if the idea was to be adopted, but the difference between the affiliates and the partners is that the partners would have more bonuses, such as a larger amount of submitted emotes to be used on their channel, etc.

I rinsed this issue it’s a great idea although not as big as twitch yes mixer isn’t but it would bring them more income and it’s would grow in users and viewers defiantly and encourage and motivate people to work more
I agree 100% and left a comment on a similar post expressing the same view
Although it would be a sweet feature, it's not required.
It would get me to move away from Twitch 100% of the time.
As of now, I really will only be doing Jackbox Party Pack or something here, since I don't have much use out of streaming here full-time, when I have an invitation to the Twitch Affiliate system in my inbox.
This would greatly improve my motivation to stream more often.
i mean this is a great idea, but Mixer isn't as big as Twitch to have that implemented maybe in the future as Mixer starts getting bigger they might consider it
