We have all had them, they get very annoying and there is nothing we can do to stop them. This would be follow troll. The people that come in, follow, unfollow, follow, unfollow, follow........... They are a distraction to the streamer, a menace to chat, and a headache for our community.
I propose adding a 24 hour individual cooldown to the follow button. If a person unfollows a streamer, the follow button become locked for 24 hours, for the person that unfollowed, preventing out wonderful follow trolls from be a nuisance.
I can see how this is annoying but I dont think a cooldown is a good idea.
A cooldown on triggering the follow notification may be a better solution.
No need to limit user actions, just the response.
I feel 24 hours is a bit too much, if it would ever happen (which I personally don't agree with this).
I would feel even an hour would be just right since most people only stream 4-6 hours.
To anon: Once you click follow, the cooldown should go into effect preventing you from unfollowing for 24 hours as well. Basically, you will have to follow someone for a minimum of 24 hours before you can unfollow, and vice versa.
Biggest problem with this are people like me who accidentally click too fast (as people with older hands/neuro disorders do) being locked out of a follow.
