I REALLY loved the Chill Zone idea but I was busy on April 1 (it was kind of a holiday, you know) so I wasn't able to stop by. I was devastated to learn, far too late of course, that it was a one-day event only. I've seen a number of tweets saying that you are "serious about looking for ways to highlight creative streamers" but debuting the Chill Zone on April Fool's - a day dedicated to pranks and jokes - especially when you were not upfront that this was a one-day event, really does not send that message at all.
My Mixer friends have been trying *hard* to get me to come to this platform permanently because I stream almost exclusively elsewhere. There are things that I like about Mixer, but I just haven't been able to get on the Mixer hype-train because I've noticed that the games and activities that I like to stream simply don't draw in viewers on Mixer like they do for me elsewhere (hint: I don't really play shooters often). Something like the "Chill Zone" had me second-guessing and thinking I could have a shot on Mixer after all - only to have the rug pulled out from under me (and other streamers that I have seen reacting to this).
tldr: debuting this was a great idea but maybe check your calendar first to make sure you send the right message. Chill streams are a real thing that people would love to share on your platform.
