You can find the minimum kudos settings in the ‘Tipping‘ page, located in ‘ Account Settings’ in the ‘Channel’ tab:

Set your motivation goals and milestones

You can set a Motivation Goal and up to 5 different Milestones in order to achieve it. You will need to go to your Dasboard and click on “Set Motivation“ in the Chat Options on left side menu. Set the goal you want to achieve and a motivation message and click on the button “Set“:

For example, let´s say you want to achieve the 500 Kudos Goal, and you want to set a Milestone at 100, 200, 300 and 400 Kudos. You can set an animation that will be shown in the Chat every time your viewers reach one of these Milestones, so they have something to look forward to in the process of achieving the Goal:

You will also be able to see a Motivation Progress Bar on top of your chat so you can have a quick look at how things are going:

These badges will be valid for the viewer indefinitely and they will be able to increase their badge rank further with time as they tip.

How to send Kudos

Once your purchase has been finalized you will have a set amount of Kudos to use.

In order to Tip your favorite streamers, first click the coin icon that appears in the chat message window, next to the emote button, then a series of “Kumotes” will appear for you to choose from:

In this case we chose the Mimi Kumote, we then click on the amount we want to tip and write a highlighted message of our wish:

Another shortcut way to to tip is by directly typing ‘Mimi’, for the mimi Kumotes, followed by the amount you want to donate and then add your message. If you want to use one of our other Kumotes you will have to type ‘Kudo’, ‘yarni, ‘bumbum’, ‘heart’, ‘blop’ or ‘brushy’ followed by the amount you want to tip and your message.

Here are some examples of how your Tipping would look like in the Chat:

Depending on the amount sent you will unlock some of our exclusive badges. Streamers can create their own Channel Badges so try to collect them all!
