Hi there, thanks for this feedback on your use case. The experiment in question is temporary, and it will be concluding relatively soon, and we should be able to report on that in an update here when it’s concluded. Were you referring to CTAs or the interstitial purple ad message, or both? Those two implementations are tangentially related but not exactly the same in terms of timing.
Got it, so yes the CTA in its current form will be concluded and interstitial ads may remain. We have definitely heard the feedback on those (since the original forum post), and we are working cross-functionally on more updates that we can hopefully share there, as well. Wish that I had more details to share there at this time, but I’ll respond in this space when I’m able to do so. Thanks again for the feedback.
Thanks again for expanding upon your thinking here, especially when it comes to different implementations or thoughts around CTAs that are deployed a bit more contextually. This is helpful for future thinking on embed discovery efforts and balancing those particular details about player placement within a specific domain. Appreciate it!
This is by far the stupidest thing Twitch can do to its business.
I’m a normal user who isn’t using any adblocks or anything. If you wanna monetize so badly, do it.
Don’t punish your existing users, who aren’t getting in your way in any way. You will end up losing a lot of money instead.
Roll this back and any user who has disabled adblock for Twitch or isn’t using adblock at all should never have to view that annoying purple screen ever again!
Clearly you guys have noobs working in this department of yours that came up with this decision.
And worst of all, you guys haven’t even given a straight answer that you’re actually gonna fix this or not.
You’re just saying “All users regardless of using adblock or not are affected” DUH! WE KNOW!
