Hi YouTube Gaming community, 

We’re excited to share a unique opportunity with you. Some of the team working on making gaming-focused features @ YouTube are going to be answering some of the top community questions asked by all of YOU.

Starting today, you can submit your questions and feedback about gaming on YouTube in the comments below and we’ll do our best to respond! 

Some key topics for our team we know that you’ve all been asking about include:
  • New Live Control Room and upcoming live features
  • Copyright for Gaming and Live streaming
  • Fan-Funded Monetization: (Super Chat, Super Stickers, Memberships)

On Friday 7/17 at 10am PT, our gaming team will be here in the community answering as many questions as possible–right here on this thread. Some responses could come from some of the following people who work on gaming and live features: 
  • Lester: Head of Gaming, Americas
  • Barbara: Product Manager, Fan-funded Monetization
  • Justin: Product Manager, Gaming Discovery
  • Julia: Product Manager, Live Streaming
  • Elizabeth: Global Marketing Lead, Gaming & Live
  • Mach: Product Specialist, Copyright

As a reminder, our teams have a variety of specializations but may not be in a position to answer questions about all areas of YouTube. We will do our best to get to as many questions as we can, but we will remove any non-recommendations, or off-topic questions.

We look forward to hearing from you!

- Jensen (TeamYouTube)

How about membership gifting? I think that would be a HUGE addition and quality of life change!

Fan-funded monetization currently has quite high requirements, especially for non-gaming creators. However, the raise of the monetization requirements from "anything goes" to the current 1k subscribers/4k watch hours has been justified with the Adpocalypse back then, ie brands accidentally advertising on ISIS content.

YouTube since has been getting better at finding and removing extremist content, and fan-funded monetization doesn't run the risk of causing an Adpocalypse in the first place as there's no advertisers involved which can pull out, so – can the requirements for fan-funded monetization be lowered?

Ideally, this would be similar to the custom URL requirements (ie 100 subscribers, 30 days old, channel fully set up), so people can get started tapping into this revenue stream quite quickly.
And if that isn't possible, lowering the requirements for the general public so that everyone can use them as soon as they're approved for monetization – that would be great, too.

Is there any plans in the future where we will be able to gift memberships to other viewers in the stream also?

What is the reasoning behind the removal of the "Go to Channel" button in the live chat? It makes it next to impossible to figure out if an unverified account is being impersonated or not.
