sub-only YouTube polls

Joe Holka 4 weeks ago updated by Eric E. (Agent) 2 weeks ago 2

Hey everyone,

I received a very nice and detailed response from support on this as my "subscriber permission" setting was not working as I thought was intended for LIVE youtube polls.

Support Response:

In Botisimo, the term "Subscribers" follows the naming scheme of platforms like Twitch, where you have "Followers" at the base level, and those who pay are considered "Subscribers".In the case of YouTube however, their terms are different. "Subscribers" are at the base level for following in YouTube, and "Sponsors" are those who pay to support the channel. So, in the case of Permissions in Botisimo, "Subscriber" = "Sponsor" for YouTube, and that's why your Subscribers weren't able to participate in the poll, because it was considered a "Sponsor" only poll.

So here we are.

Request:
I do think a "Follower/YouTube Subscriber" permission only option for polls would be very useful on Youtube and something no one else offers yet. For example, I do football content, and on Sunday mornings I get about 1k live viewers, my streams during the week are about 250. So being able to capture more subscribers when the hype is at it's peak (Sundays) would be very very beneficial to my growth.

Hope this is strongly considered for a future update and please keep me in the loop if at all possible.

Joe

This feature has now been added to both Polls and Giveaways. Please note: the Follower/YouTube Subscriber only option only works for Twitch and YouTube right now.

In addition to this I would like to extend the request to Twitch followers.

For streamers that have not yet made affiliate, most all of the features for "Subs" are useless until hitting the benchmarks to be accepted into Twitch's affiliate program.

Being able to track and incentivize followers is really one of the few effective tools that non-affiliated streamers have to be able to grow their stream.

I have been using a self hosted instance of SogeBot to do this at the moment but would legitimately be able to drop ALL of my other bots if you guys implemented this feature. 

Hopefully if this next stream goes well I'll be able to get subs 🤞🏻 and this will be less of an issue, but in general its a great feature I woudl love to see.

Also, having tested nearly every bot out there (nightbot, moobot, phantombot, sogebot, deepbot, etc.), in my opinion adding this feature would make Botisimo the undebatable #1 bot on the market.
