  1. Respect people who HAVE to have a sub lapse, indicate how many months total they have subbed

    1. Keep the sub badge so it represents the current consecutive streak. That way there is still incentive for those who can keep the sub streak going.
    2. On Hover and in the resub notification, display the consecutive number of months and then the total number of months.So the streamer can see that they have been supporting, but may have had a lapse.
    3. When in a current lapse of your sub, your last sub streak should still display but displayed in some way (such as being partially transparent) that indicates the sub is not currently active. This would show…

    • Channel Revenue direct to Charity

      Allow streamer the option to donate all channel revenue (subs, cheers, sales) directly to a charity. For maximum transparency the money could go from Twitch directly to the charity, and ideally maybe Twitch would consider taking a lesser percentage so that more of the money gets to the charity?

      • Reintroduce "Pinch to Zoom" on Mobile

        After a recent update to version 5.8 on January 17, 2018 a feature on iOS mobile was removed to be able to "pinch to zoom" in on areas of the stream. Being on mobile with an already smaller screen, when I'm watching Magic: The Gathering streams, it's really important for me to be able to zoom in on the various cards to read details of the print. With this new update, the streams are locked into the "full screen" view and it makes it much more difficult to view.

        Is there a possibility to reintroduce the "pinch to zoom" functionality…

        • Add a 500 viewer limit for German streamers

          Concidering the new streaming laws in Germany, I think it'd be a good idea to give German streamers the option to limit their streams to 500 viewers, so they don't have to get a broadcasting license.

          • Update the game name

            When a Twitch Steamer is playing a game, his friends show up, he changes games. Then he will change the title.
            PROBLEM, the people viewing the steam will see the old game title.

            IDEA - software should update the title in the app

            Otherwise, every conversation goes something like this, "Just refresh. idk, refresh. Refresh it. Twitch won't refresh. Refresh please, changing." "Why are you still playing 12345?" "I'm not, refresh."

            • Make gift sub notice that says the number of total subs gifted optional

              This new gift subscription notification text that specifically says the number of gifted subs the person has given in a channel was probably put in place to reward those gifters, but it's having the opposite effect from my anecdotal experience. There are several users who gift a LOT of subs across the community I'm in. I'm talking hundreds a month. Each of them has said they give less gift subs because of this new notification, which calls out how many they've done, makes them feel awkward, etc. I could definitely see some people who would like that feature, because maybe…

              • Run a twitch-wide charity event much like the HRC campaign for the children affected by the zero tolerance policy

                Twitch is a great platform for raising money and I was looking at tiltify and I couldn't find a single organization to help support this cause. A lot of streamers have been pretty outspoken against the situation at the US border and children being separated from their families. It'd be great if Twitch could come together to raise money for this cause. I've already reached out to one organization to potentially work with them and some members of the stream team I'm on, but it'd be great if we could do something even bigger as a community! I know that…

                • Follower Emotes (PARTNERS)

                  My Idea would fit more for Partners then for Affiliates, I think.

                  It would be awesome to have 1 Emote Slot free for Followers, so People can Follow my Channel and get this one special Emote as thank you.

                  This would directly create a sympathy between Streamer and Follower, and Followers eventually want more Emotes from the channel when they already like the follower Emote, this would raise the support insanely, I think.

                  Also People can share your emote with other viewers/streamers and just have a good time with some free emotes from their Favorites channels/streamers.

                  I personally enjoy it…

                  • Streaming language Armenian

                    Dear Twitch Team,

                    Please help to develop the Armenian gaming community, we have a lot of good players who want to stream in Armenian, to communicate and speak Armenian, but there is nowhere such a streaming platform where you can communicate in Armenian, if you could add Armenian to your wonderful platform, we would be very grateful

                    Thanks

                    • Add Chudat's iconic "Yeahyuzz" as an emote

                      Chudat is a key feature of the SSBM community and whenever he is on Twitch, the chat lights up with thousands of "Yeahyuzzzz" and "=D7" and there is an amazing opprtunity for this to become one of Twitch's most iconic emotes and see the Smash community more represented on Twitch

                        • Do not disable Twitch notifications via an algorithm

                          It seems Twitch is rolling out a method where Notifications are disabled automatically for streams you may not view often. This could easily be missed by a viewer who wants to enjoy that stream but maybe timezones are an issue, or just real life gets in the way.

                          People can already manually turn off notifications if they choose, automating this seems to be something that will only hurt producers.

                          Some people may not receive an email at all, and find they have had their notifications forced off. This is a bad bad direction to go in.

                          • More Affiliate Emotes

                            As an affiliate who is succeeding in grabbing a wonderful community of viewers and subscribers, I would love for them to receive what they deserve for their patronage to both me and Twitch. I believe that Partners should 100% be allotted more emotes for their success, but the same could be said for us affiliates. I understand that can be difficult to do considering you (Twitch) wants to have more benefits for partners. However, I believe there is a middle ground that could be met and I have a few ideas that I will list to give us hard working…

                            • Streaming Language Swissgerman

                              The Swiss Twitch scene is getting bigger and bigger.

                              However, since we do not speak/stream German but Swiss German,
                              viewers have difficulties to find us on Twitch.

                              Would there not be a possibility for Twitch to add the language 'Swiss-German'?

                              That would help our community grow a lot and especially for the streamers, so they dont have to change their language.

                                  I would love a button that allows us to allow a message into chat, but not affect the automod blocking those specific terms. Just like an "allow once" button. This would allow for more flexibility in letting people say certain things, without messing with automod's word bank.

                                  • A library of approved emotes / don't delete emotes when changing.

                                    Lovingly lifted from the comments section of: https://www.reddit.com/r/Twitch/comments/7x9vrv/please_let_us_change_emotes_without_deleting_the/

                                    Two things -

                                    1. Deleting of emotes when want to change them is a pain. It means subscribers lose one of the (few) benefits that are given to them at the affiliate level. It's just that the approval process takes so long, that not being able to use anything while waiting for approval stinks.

                                    2. I think it would be great if we could have a library of previously approved emotes, so we can swap them out for holidays, etc. If you want to keep it to 3 active emotes for affiliates,…

                                    • Autohost based on game

                                      We have an official game channel on Twitch -- we have tons of streamers that play the game, but (of course) most are variety streamers.

                                      We'd love to autohost some of these folks playing our game, but it'd be awkward if we autohost them and they randomly play :any game that's not our game:. After all, it's the official game Twitch channel!

                                      This would be useful to any themed streamers or gamers that only play x or y game. There may be variety streamers that play MOBAS but a LoL Twitch channel would autohost their friends only when they're playing…

                                      • Prime Upgraded Subscriptions

                                        If you are currently a Twitch Prime Member, you can currently sub to someone for free at $4.99. I also think that you should be able to "upgrade" your sub to that person at a discounted rate per month. Example, you should be able to subscribe to the person for $9.99 but only pay $5, and then be able to sub at $24.99 for only $20.

                                        • Create a Global Emote for Brian/izl. Honor him.

                                          I first saw izl/Brian as an Admin on September 24th, 2014. His shield badge and BTTV glow was so shiny that I had to take a screenshot. https://i.imgur.com/xJHr6oB.jpg

                                          I was so new to Twitch back then. On day one he showed kindness by giving me great advice and 4 URL tools, I was so happy that I had a way to check hosts and count chatters.

                                          When our community was nervous about rejection, he reassured us to try applying for partnership. Later on, the streamer got partnered.

                                          Years later, he founded the Moderation team that enabled communication & collaboration. http://streamernews.tv/2016/06/07/brian-mcnulty-created-a-twitch-moderator-slack-team
