Season 2: Remove interactive boards for non-partners, or add a sparks crystal for them. Current system discourages engagement.
With the Season 2 roll out, it seems like there is literally no reason for viewers to use their sparks on a non-partnered interactive board now. This will also effect non-partner's overall engagement and growth.
I've seen some really well done boards that have a lot of hard work put into them, so it would be nice to see those streamers rewarded for their work, partnered or not. Especially since Mixer doesn't offer any type of affiliation program.
I think it's unfair at this point to offer a sparks crystal to partners, but not non-partners, even though BOTH can create interactive boards.
I am feeling some of the same things. I've been on Mixer for 2 years and still aren't even close to partnership. This is really discouraging me from sticking around on Mixer.
