I would like an option to opt out of this for many of the reasons already listed here. But my main reasons are:
Participation in chat shouldn't be a competition. If people chat it should be because they want to. Not because it gives them points.
It is a system that I've witnessed encourage spam/non meaningful chat.
We don't want something that could change how people treat new community members or make anyone feel less than.
A lot of streamers already have their own ranking system based on hours watched and it works fine. It is tied to hanging out and not a chat competition.
Lurkers shouldn't be put at a disadvantage or made "less than" because they can not or choose not to chat. Many people watch at work and shouldn't feel pressured to chat if they aren't able.
Please give us an opt out feature.SisterPaws supported this idea ·
