I went to Twitch today to watch some streams. I've found that a lot of streams have such a heavy emphasis on benefits for those donated. Now I'm going to bring up a touchy subject here: women that are streaming on Twitch. I found one girl who was streaming WoW and the camera focused on her took up the majority of the screen, with the actual gameplay in the corner as a tiny square. Also on the screen was some rolling text for top donator of the week, etc. etc. Listed below that was top donator of all time which was nearly $2,000. Who would donate $2,000 to someone who isn't actually playing a game on a website about streaming games?
There are legitimate streamers (regardless of gender) and they'll continue to do great things. I know Twitch doesn't have the best community, but will there actually be efforts to prevent it from becoming a cash grab if the issue becomes more prominent? Cosmo, for example, deserves all the money he gets. He streams often and devotes a lot of time to it. In comparison these other people that I mentioned make it seem so dirty.
