    I also love my streamers and donate real money regularly, but I feel like Mixer is going in the wrong direction with Sparks and Embers too. BEAM was all about "community" and "family", making the viewers feel like they were part of something different than Twitch. But now MIXER (Microsoft) just feels like they're doing everything they can to milk more money out of us. My guess is that Microsoft's strategy is for everyone to get rid of Sparks, then they'll remove them all together and Embers will be the only "currency" you'll have, which will cost real money to get, just like Twitch Bits. Maybe that's great for the bottom line of the business, but philosophically, it kind of sucks.

    I've spent thousands of hours (and dollars) on Beam/Mixer over the past 2+ years and have a few million sparks, that have been useless until now. But instead of Microsoft rewarding our loyalty and allowing us to buy merch or other perks (a "Sparks Store", for example), they've decided to almost "trick" people into dumping all of those sparks back into the system so they can release "pay-for-play" Embers and make more money off of us. That's not giving back to the community, that's just greed. I can get that at Twitch, but Mixer is supposed to be different. Why are we (the Viewers) not being rewarded in any way for all of the time we spend on the site? Averaging a couple hundred sparks an hour (because the earning rates are so pitifully low), if there was a "Sparks Store" where a t-shirt or a hat cost 200,000 sparks, I'd still have to spend a THOUSAND HOURS on the site to get it for "free". Maybe if I even decide to get Pro to earn Sparks faster, in 3 months, you've already made up the cost of that "free" merch. We know Microsoft doesn't like "free", so then go ahead and charge $5.99 for S&H to help offset the cost. At the end of the day though, I spent a THOUSAND HOURS on Mixer and by wearing your "free" merch, I'm giving you "free" PR. Even I can see that's a benefit to Microsoft - I'm sure the Marketing department can do even better...

    Also, why does Pro cost $2 more than a sub? There are no ads (yet), so why is that a perk of Pro? The Sparks/XP earning rate is horribly low anyway and "faster support"? C'mon...

    The bottom line is that it feels more and more like Microsoft is turning Mixer into everything most of us hate about Twitch. I'm happy that [some] streamers are benefitting a bit more than they have been, but Mixer won't be what Beam was originally intended to be, if Microsoft starts caring more about money than they do about the viewers who make them that money.

    We don't feel like we're part of something anymore. We don't feel like a family anymore.

    I think it's a great idea. The Streamer should have the option to "Super Mod" people they trust to handle things like that. They're busy creating the content and shouldn't have to be worried about "personnel" issues in the middle of a stream. Let the "Super Mods" deal with it live and work through the rest of it offline.

    Bumping this thread. As much as Mixer has grown and we now regularly see 200, 300, 500 or more concurrent viewers on a regular basis, modding has become quite the amount of work. Being able to view a log of the actions taken would be VERY helpful for the streamer and other mods to review. As streamers are trying to build their communities, if they have mods that aren't doing things the way they'd like them to be done, a "mod log" would be nice to look though to maybe kind of see which mods might be a little too aggressive or not aggressive enough, etc. Would love an update to know if this feature is still in the works.

    Maybe an intermediate change could be that when you X out of one of the co-stream "windows", that instead of just sitting there blank, that it either shrinks down to a much smaller size or goes away completely (maybe leaving an icon behind so a user could reopen it if they wanted to), to let the other co-stream window(s) regain the usage of that space and resize themselves to be larger?
