Allow sparks to stack for Pro and Sub memberships
There are a few ideas and grips in the feedback since the new season about what to do with sparks. Some of the ideas are similar to what I would like to see happen, but I think the feedback items have multiple ideas and I want to keep it simple.
If a viewer has both Pro and Subs to a channel then allow spark earnings to double. Currently, the following happens.
Viewer earns 2 sparks / minute (yawn) when watching any channel
Pro earns 2x a normal viewer (4 spaks / minute) when watching any channel - not much with the ability to spend the sparks as tips.
Sub earns 2x a normal viewer (4 spaks / minute) when watching the channel the viewer is subbed to - again not much.
What I would like to see happen is if I am Pro and a Sub of a channel and I am watching that channel then the Pro and Sub spark earnings stack. I am thinking this would be 6 sparks / minute (2 for being a viewer, 2 for pro, and 2 for subbing). Of course, this would change so that if the normal rate was changed to 4/min then I would get 12 sparks / minute (4 for viewing, 4 for Pro, and 4 for subbing) for watching a subbed channel as a viewer.
This would add more value to being a Pro and a Sub. The same coudl be done with the XP too.
