  1. Create a list of "Restricted Games" that can only be broadcasted behind an 18+ age gate.

    Some games with nudity/sexual content are banned, and some games with nudity/sexual content are NOT banned. This creates a dilemma; on a daily basis, I see many broadcasters and users saying, "Why is X banned, while Z is unbanned? Z is worse than X! We should be able to broadcast X on this website!" These inconsistencies have caused confusion and frustration for broadcasters and viewers alike.

    For the purpose of this suggestion, let us establish two types of games:

    1. Pornographic games.
    2. Games that contain nudity/sexual content, but are NOT pornographic in nature.

    Pornographic games can be defined very…

    • Work together with developers to get banned games allowed back on Twitch

      I’m developing a game called Yandere Simulator.

      In January of 2016, Twitch added my game to their list of prohibited games: help.twitch.tv/customer/portal/articles/1992676-list-of-prohibited-games

      This was a newsworthy event, and numerous websites reported about it:

      http://www.pcgamer.com/yandere-simulator-banned-from-twitch/1
      http://www.polygon.com/2016/1/22/10815594/yandere-simulator-banned-twitch-reddit3

      http://www.techtimes.com/articles/127108/20160123/twitch-bans-users-broadcasting-yandere-simulator.htm

      The Twitch community reacted with confusion, unsure why the game deserved to be banned: www.reddit.com/r/Twitch/comments/4230gv/so_yandere_simulator_is_now_banned_from_twitch/2

      I made a video about the subject, expressing my own confusion: www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_KPVLXf3B03 This video has been viewed over 877,000 times.

      Over the past 11 months, I have attempted to contact Twitch numerous times to ask why Yandere Simulator is banned. However, Twitch has never given me a…

      • "Would you like to resubscribe to this broadcaster with Twitch Prime?"

        When watching the broadcaster you previously subscribed to with Twitch Prime and your subscription ends, trigger a resubscribe notification In the same way Twitch pops up the "Announce your resub anniversary" notification.

        Have it suggest resubscribing with Twitch Prime once it's expired. If they click "share", it automatically resubscribes with their Prime subscription.

        • Implement a "VIP Badge" so streamers can identify important persons (Devs, Community Managers, Industry persons or just general VIPs)

          Streamers regularly have to Mod persons of interest in their chat, whether other streamers, devs, community managers or just general "VIPs" in chat so they can be more visible and be interacted with more effectively.

          This results in many streamers having Mods in the triple digits, and management of the Mod team being more complex.

          A simply implemented fix to this situation would be to bring in a "VIP" status badge, with none of the authority of a Mod Badge.

          Implementing this feature would allow streamers greater flexibility in how they handle their communities and make communicating with one another…

          • Flagging messages as spoilers / Setting the channel to spoiler sensitive

            The idea behind flagging messages as spoilers is allowing people to have a discussion without ruining the experience for others.

            Mods would be able to flag a message as a spoiler, making the message hidden for the user until they click on it to reveal it.

            Another idea would be a command for mods to set the channel to "spoiler sensitive" which allows viewers to self-flag their messages as potential spoilers if they are not fully sure about what is allowed to talk about or not.
            Having this only allowed only whenever the channel is specifically set to this mode…

            • CS:GO channels divided by language

              I think no one use the Map filter on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive channels.
              Filter by language I think it's the best solution for all streamers. (Like all other games)

              • To add "Reading" in "Playing..." options

                Recently, I've tried new content at my stream. I was reading for my viewers different books and received a good feedback from them. I think that if "Food" and "Creative" exist, "Reading" might also get it's own popularity.

                • Creative need Categories instead of (or in addition to) Communities.

                  The 'communities' system is not an appropriate way to categories creative streams. It is not appropriate (or ethical) to allow a streamer to manage/administer what has effectively become a category for creative streamers.

                  • Watch Series with Viewers (Prime Viewers only)

                    Do you know that feeling as a Streamer when u want to chill and relax and just want to watch some TV series with your viewers? But you can't, because it's against the twitch rules?

                    So some time ago Twitch and Amazon Prime got so much intertwined, that it would be possible to do exactly thesw chill-series-streams some streamers want.

                    The TV-series streams would be only visible for prime users and when a streamer switchs to this kind of stream, the non-prime users will get a screen where it says, that they can't watch the stream and need to purchase…

                    • Allow a timer for autohosting to turn on/off.

                      It'd be nice if streamers could set dates and times for autohosting to automatically turn on or off.

                      Examples:
                      1. An autohost turns off everyday at 5am, about an hour or two before the streamer usually goes live. It turns on at midnight, a couple hours after they've normally gone offline.
                      2. If a streamer is going on vacation, they can set the autohost for the specific dates/times they will be gone and unable to stream.

                      I believe that having more options and control over autohosting would prompt more people to use it when they are not live.

                      • "/modchat"

                        as a mod it would be helpful if i could talk to all the other mods without having to whisper them each individually once by one.....all we would have to do is type "/modchat <message>" and it would show up in chat like the ban, timeout, purge messages do. All mods can communicate without the rest of chat seeing it. Also, they can be pinned for important channel stuff like in discord, so any mod coming into chat can see what's new or changed with regards to the stream rules and such

                        • Display names should only show up in stream chats that use the language of it

                          Say you have a Japanese display name and like to watch English streams and are English, the English streamers cant read your name because most of them use extensions which cause it to only show the Japanese lettering and not the English in parenthesis. So if youre in an English chat your display name should automatically be only English if you choose and If youre in other language you can have a non-English display name

                              • main moderator

                                Most streamers already have their main mods with which they communicate. Also often in big streams, streamers dont know all users in chat and who is who(does user adequate or how long user here). So i suggest if streamer wants he can create one main moderator in channel, that can mod(or unmod) other user.

                                • Add a symbol that imitates line-break

                                  Sometimes you need to post information to your channel that is best viewed when its multiline, like a table with header and rows, list of items or some mini-report from the channel bot.

                                  Since IRC can't use CRLF in messages, I suggest adding a way for channel mods (avoids abuse) to use a special symbol (or double-space as in markdown) that would visually act as a line break.

                                  That way it would be possible for mods (users and bots) to post quick summaries to the channel that are easy to read and do not require several posts to make it…

                                    I mod for team Tempo Storm. Every streamer is added to the Tempo Storm community which we use to promote who is online in our website or through apps or bots on discord/curse. My role is to ensure every team member, no matter which game they are playing, is doing well and chat is behaving. This is sometimes hard to do if the streamer hasn't met me through the team contacts, or some other reason. These streamers may be hesitant to mod me or others like me in the same role.

                                    So my suggestion is to add a community based…

                                    • Enable/Disable option for autoplay feature in past broadcasts

                                      Hey, I watch alot of past broadcasts and I don't quite understand why we're all being forced to use this option. It might be good with short videos like on other platforms, but on here it's more painfull than useful.

                                      Me and probably many other people watch them while going to sleep. So If you wake up and there are random streams marked (auto play plays random pb's for me), it's hard to remember what you actually watched.
                                      I also noticed that it doesn't always shows what's going to be played next https://gyazo.com/838517e196f50c6d757a3f6d9b1a9a3d .

                                      I really hope you implement this…

                                        Please let us delete Followers. I had some trolls in my channel, creating stupid usernames including my channelname.

                                        I reported them over a week now and twitch is doing nothing. This accounts still exist....

                                        I dont want them in my follower list! I dont want them to get a mail, when i go live to remember them "Hej, he is online again, lets get there and troll him again"!
                                        If someone is trolling, following and gets a mail everytime, when the streamer is going live, he can start over and over to create troll accounts.
                                        So: PLEASE! Let use remove…

                                          Enable bits to be used to purchase subscriptions for channels.

                                          Give discount on channel subscription cost, based on bits purchased or bits in stock.

                                          Would save twitch money on payment/card processing fees per subscription as money already with twitch.

                                          Would encourage more people to sub to channels to get good discount worth the % fees paid to get bits.

                                          Subscribing to XX channels based on % would give cover any % payed to get the bits, this would encourage use of bits, and give discounts to those that supported more channels with subscriptions, and more usage of bits.

                                          Would save…
