  1. I want to accumulate Microsoft Rewards Points using Mixer

    For those of you unaware, you can earn Microsoft Rewards points for various activities like searching for stuff on Bing, buying items from the Microsoft store, etc.

    The points earned can be used towards cool stuff like buying a month of Xbox Gold or Live. You can enter contests for xboxes, or computers.

    I would love to see integration of this into Mixer. Searching for Mixer users, Searching for Games on Mixer. Watching Mixer streamers, or Streaming to Mixer could all accumulate points and draw more attention to the platform.

    Rewarding our viewers with tangible points that can lead to…

    • Favorites list for Games/Categories

      A "favorites" list for games would be really cool. It would make it easier to find awesome streamers in the games you enjoy. This would really help smaller streamers. Searching down through the games is tedious if not many people are watching the particular category. I made an example for it. It might also help to make them searchable. Just an idea! #mixerlove <3

      • Mix it Up button

        Mix It Up button.

        This could be a fun new way to discover new and random streamers across Mixer. A simple button that sends you to a random stream (in your rating group)? Like the stream? Stay and interact! Not for you? Hit Mix It Up again!

        Could have a fun animation, that encourages people to Mix It Up!

        Super simple but fun concept.

        • Finding New Streamers

          Hi Guys As a new streamer to Mixer I find it next or near impossible to find my stream. Would it be possible to search for streams via stream title as of the moment I can only find my stream searching by my username and searching by the game I am streaming returns no results. How is anyone starting out expected to get any passing traffic.
          from reading other posts on the forum I believe having zero viewers is affecting the visibility of my stream is anyone else having these issues or is it just myself. But to sum things…

          • Remove Rebroadcasts as Live

            Streamers should not be allowed to rebroadcast previous content as Live. The whole concept of Mixer is to interact with viewers. Let's reward the streamers who are actually streaming!

            I just noticed that kwebbelkop is rebroadcasting 24/7. All he is doing is stealing views from "live" streamers, taking advantage of his Youtube celebrity status.

            Before anyone hates on this, I really enjoy kwebbelkop when he's live!

            Also, the entire chat is full of trolling, harassment and spam, since there is no moderation. Viewers are hosting and following him, instead of supporting live streamers. Most of the don't even realize that…

            • rising star - smarter algorithm or catered content

              Currently it seems as though the rising star section is new users with 0 followers. It would be nice if there was more behind this, like some basic criteria for example, something in the About Me section, a nondefault picture, maybe even smarter than this like a certain percentage of growth within a certain time, or streaming frequency. Also using it to highlight games with less viewers could be good.

              I know this type of algorithm and potential machine learning can take a bit to perfect so in the mean time maybe some catered content goes in there. You have…

                  • Unified Search

                    There should be a unified search option front and center on the mixer homepage. Currently the channel search is confusing, when I just want to search for a specific game. Users typically won't know the specific channel name they want to search for, but rather the game they're looking to search for. For the channel search to be front and center makes things confusing. I also encountered an even more confusing user flow when I typed my game search query into the channel search, and then got no results before noticing the game search. After typing my query into the…

                    • Search for streams by title

                      I can search for a user/channel name, but it would be helpful to search by title. This would allow me to look for things like "#raidfriendly" or "giveaway" or "Xbox".

                      • Additional channel browse category - Costreams

                        On the front page, add an additional filter or a header tab to narrow down results to show just the streamers who are currently costreaming with somebody.

                        • Search by game should show streams that previously featured that game

                          I'd like to find people who stream games I like, but there may be few or no people streaming it depending on the time of day. There should be a section below the people actively streaming that shows channels that have streamed the game recently (in the past two weeks or so).

                                  • Up and Coming Page Suggestions

                                    I like the idea of the Up and Coming page, but feel it's being neglected or otherwise not as effective as it could be.

                                    1) I think the UaC page should feature a limited number of streams (12?). And these should get rotated out on an hourly basis (or some amount of time) and a new set of up and comers can get in.

                                    Currently, the page can be near infinitely scrolled down and people below the top 12 are not benefited by this unless someone is real bored and just scrolls and scrolls.

                                    2) As has been said before,…

                                    • Hard to find missed streams?

                                      If you miss a stream it seems to be really hard to find.
                                      Is this service exclusively for live broadcasts?
                                      I tried searching for E3 Colliseum and gameslice with no hits
                                      I went to Youtube gaming site and immediately found.
                                      "E3 Coliseum - Project Scorpio..."

                                      • Tag and Search Options for Language

                                        My suggestion is the ability in your stream settings to Tag your stream in languages you speak, accompanied by the ability to specifically search for the language you want to watch in. This will encourage new and old users alike to find new people that they didn't realize spoke their native language and also encourage streamers to use a language they may know but originally did not get them any viewers. =)

                                          I think it'd be really cool to have a tab in Browse next to "Following" labeled "Followers" which when clicked shows all the live channels that follow you.
