Just an observation as a moderator for 20+ streams I feel Channel One is doing more harm than good. Less popular/newer streams are seeing even less traffic than when the "sparks" started and now Channel One sits at 4,595 viewers that would otherwise be in someones stream rather than "farming" sparks. Just a suggestion, use Channel one to support/stimulate streams with low viewer counts to help them grow instead of rewarding lurkers or streams that are already thriving. After being involved with the streaming community sense it began I'm happy to call Mixer home, and want to see everyone's efforts turn into greatness. Cheers

Tend to agree, kind of torn on it actually because on one side I do think it helps get people some noticed, on the other, Channel 1 is getting more and more viewers and that's the only place a lot of people go. Would it be possible to do something like giving the bonus sparks to the first week of views on someone's stream after you found them on Channel 1? Some way to incentivize people to use Channel 1 to find streamers, but also incentivize them to actually watch the streams instead of Channel 1.
