I’m not sure if this is possible to set up already, or if this exists. If so, PLEASE enlighten me If not, I am requesting this feature. I would like that people who lurk in my stream and not say anything, to NOT go up in hours. I know about the ignore bots feature, entering a bot name into there will block them from gaining any time in stream, but I’d like the hours/time to start counting only if that person says something in chat. I made ranks, one of them being from 0 hours to 5 hours (being regular status) and when someone would join my chat for the first time, and not say anything, they would be called out by the Phantom bot for leveling to the first level at 0 hours, Newbie level. (If I changed ‘Newbie’ level to be at 1 hour then this would just postpone the same issue) This was pretty bad, so I had to disable rank shoutouts all together.
Previously, I used Streamlabs Chatbot and that bot would not count anyone’s time if they didn’t speak in chat, so people who lurked in my channel over the span of days, would not gain hours when I’m streaming, if they never speak in chat. Currently, my currency is through Streamlabs Extension and I’ve heard of other bots having that similar lock on their currency system as well, Streamlabs Extension does not have that, unfortunately. If that was possible with Phantom bot Currency, I would definitely consider switching to that!
My reason for asking for all this is that my viewers enjoy checking the top hours and trying to get up higher than others and unlocking cool/custom ranks. The people I see doing this lately are in the communities I’m part of, and are doing this in quite a few other streams. Some of which have prizes people unlock by reaching a certain level of currency. Gift cards/gifted Subs/etc. So people sitting in multiple chats and not being part of the streams, farming currency/hours to unlock actual prizes from a stream they aren’t watching does not seem fair to me, so finding a way to “lock” that gain in hours/currency is what I am asking for.
Thank you for any help or info provided!! <3
