I felt like 5k was already somewhat high as it is. This is downright exorbitant IMO! If somebody is spamming gifs and you don't want them to, you deal with it the same as you do someone spamming "y" in chat; ask them to stop, and if they don't, ban hammer!
This is a fantastic idea. Currently, search is... Well, there isn't even a search bar. You can filter by game, but that's about it. A better way to search for streams and streamers (Including those who are not currently live, perhaps) is greatly needed!
A HUGE +1 from me! Right now, Mixer kind of feels like "the battle royale site", as far as what I'm presented with on the home page. As someone who's just not that into the whole BR craze, I would find the site a lot more enjoyable if it were tailored more toward my preferences (Plus, giving partners a reason to stream literally anything other than Apex or Fortnite).
