The Final Update, Maybe?
insert Final Countdown music here
As you can see from the above post I have now submitted a PR over to Glimesh. In plainspeak this PR is bringing you improved emote options!
Require Channel Subscription:
Pretty simple, toggle this on and only users who are subscribed to your channel will have access to this emote. Non-subscribers will not be able to see this emote in the picker due to the limited functionality behind the current emote selector - however, the emote owner will have access to be able to use their subscriber locked emotes, so you can advertise them to people in your chat still if you wish!
Allow Platform use:
Toggle this on and your emote will be available to use on the website. You can only have 1 emote used platform wide, this is to keep the emote picker manageable. As an addition, you cannot circumvent this, clicking allow platform use on another emote will automatically disable it for all others.
Require Channel Sub & Allow Platform use:
You can toggle both of these on, in doing so a channel subscriber will be able to use your subscription locked emotes anywhere on the platform - again though, the same rules apply, if you made your subscriber emote your platform emote as well, this would count as your 1 platform emote.
Additional feature hurray seasonal emotes? people overusing an emote in your channel? toggle this on to disabled that emote from being used anywhere whether it be channel or platform - you can reinstate your emote without reuploading at any time, just click the toggle again!
On Platform use being disallowed:
If the GCT review your emote and feel it is within channel and sub only use, but may be a controversial emote (see: pepe) due to the history of the emote and its use, we can restrict it so it cannot be used platform wide. If this happens you will not see the platform use toggle and will be presented with a message beneath the emote explaining this is not allowed and where to go to get further information should you wish regarding this decision.
After talking to Paco earlier in this thread about best ways to approve emotes via GCT now we have some new options on emote approval
I have taken on board Banjax’s advice on button wording:
Allows an emote to be approved on all facets sub, platform and channel.
Allows an emote to approved for sub and channel use but not platform use, as explained above this will present the user with a message to notify them in their emote dashboard.
For anyone who has pre-existing emotes on the platform these emotes will remain and all options will be available to them by default, however, GCT will be able to manually review any platform available emotes and disable them from platform use. This a catch all for those which have previously been approved from a Channel only prespective, but also future proof for any emotes which may end up being used in a hateful way so that we can turn these off. If a GCT member does disable from global use this way, the user will be presented with the same informational message as if it had been disabled at point of approval, as outlined above.
While this may not be the final iteration of emotes, it is the current iteration for me. I hope everyone likes it, any feedback or thoughts please do let me know on this thread.
Otherwise, thank you all for the support and for reading my ramblings.
