This was kinda a thing before, we had a "Up and coming" section on Mixer, but I'm no longer seeing it. Mixer needs to bring that tab back for discover-ability for smaller streams
This was brought up a long time ago, and there was a lot of partners who didn't want that feature on Mixer. I personally like the toggle idea however
I'm hoping they do exactly that, if people can mute Moderators, Channel Editors and even the Streamer themselves in chat, it will cause some bigger issues down the road.
Please make these three roles impossible to mute, as there is no sane reason to have that be part of the new feature
