Season 2 - sparks and skills discourage engagement for non partners

Season 2 - sparks and skills discourage engagement for non partners.

If a viewer comes in and uses sparks for skills or interactive board for any non-partnered streamers they are now throwing away free currency they could spend on a partner channel.

Sure I want viewers to interact with my stream and other non partners but why waste it on me when someone else could benefit? It's almost like burning money.

What if non partners could use donated sparks on their to other channels (partner or not) so that original spark is not set a blaze and wasted.

Maybe have a minimum requirement for not losing sparks donated to your channel but that gets into a affiliation role and don't really want that relasp. If you don't put time into your channel/ content you create people won't use their sparks on you regardless but at least it wouldn't discourage them to even bother using them on you.

My two cents. Or sparks?

    I average about 100k sparks every day or two for watching and streaming. It's no real loss if someone drops sparks on my newbie channel since it's a made up currency given away for free. And wasting the currency helps to keep the value of sparks higher vs only ever using it on partnered channels. #overthinkingsparks

    I look at it this way. the sparks are theirs to do with as they wish. people waste money all the time on stuff I would never buy, seems very little difference to me in this situation. while I appreciate the sentiment and purpose of your post, I personally do not take umbrage to sparks being used however the owner of said sparks chooses to use them.

    Another counter
    Sparks could be donated to charity of choice. Non partner could choice a monthly charity or accumulated sparks be donated at their leisure.

    Reply on Twitter concern cheating system. My counter suggestion ------
    Maybe if the sparks earned for nonpartner resets weekly with the spark totals

    OR

    All sparks earned during current broadcast auto transfers to person you host within 5 mins of stream end?
