  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…

      • Amazon Prime video Streams

        I think it would be very nice if the Streamer can watch Videos / Films / Series with the Community! But how?

        The way could be to enshure that only Twitch Prime Users are able to watch a Video / Film / Series Stream and then everyone got the rights to view the Stream / Film because everyone got an Amazon Prime account! I also think it wouldnt be that hard to get something like this rolling and also many people would like it please think about that :)

        greetings TheMassiveMax

        • Amazon Smile Charity Integration for bits/subs and broadcasts

          smile.amazon.com allows amazon users to select a charity organization from a massive database and 0.5% of purchases will be given to that charity.

          It would be fantastic if users on Twitch could select a charity from the existing Amazon Smile database on their Twitch profile settings, where an amount is taken from the Twitch portion of every sub purchase or bit purchase. The broadcaster receives the same amount, but a small percentage is donated from the bit fee or Twitch portion of sub revenue. Users making this choice could receive a special chat badge indicating they support a charity!

          • "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.

            • Automatically refresh stream page when broadcaster goes live

              Before you implemented the new player you didn't need to refresh the page when a stream went live. Now you will not even notice when a stream goes live unless you refresh the page.

              Example:
              Current behavior:
              1. Go to offline stream page (ex https://www.twitch.tv/reckful)
              2. Reckful starts his stream
              3. Nothing happens and the user has no idea that reckful has gone live even if he has had this tab open for hours

              Wanted behavior:
              1. Go to offline stream page (ex https://www.twitch.tv/reckful)
              2. Reckful starts streaming
              3. Stream starts playing instantly

              I know that this worked…

              • 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…

                • Let emotes artists use the emotes they draw for partnered streamers for free

                  It would be awesome if Twitch allowed artists who design emotes for partnered streamers use them for free!

                  A suggestion is for Twitch to create the option for partnered streamers to specify which artist(s) created their emotes when they upload them which would then allow the artist to use those emotes on Twitch.

                  Benefits to this is that it would provide more exposure to both the streamer and the artist. The artist would get more promotion through sharing their created emotes on Twitch. Fans of the artist who enjoy their art style would be able to see which emotes the…

                  • Add support for Co-op Streaming on twitch

                    Currently on twitch Cooperative streaming and combining communities is a widely used concept to have two streamers join together on one stream. It would be very beneficial to add support for such a workflow via creating a dashboard option to add another streamer as a co-host for the stream. This could allow users to follow both streamers if they are enjoying the content, instead of just the one who is broadcasting.

                    • Older games and indie games should be grouped together, providing a larger audience & chance to be seen!

                      Older games and indie games are almost unplayable if a streamer wants to continue to grow. The likelihood of gaining new viewers or a decent audience is severely decreased due to how these games are categorized on Twitch. However, it should be a simple fix. Implement a system similar to browsing the CS:GO map sections or the various subcategories in Creative. Create an "Indie Games" option for broadcasters to list as their game. Within that, you can include subcategories of the different games. For older games (such as the Mass Effect series), make a game listing that encompasses the whole…

                      • Acquire Bits from purchases from Amazon

                        This would be similar to a Cash Back option through Amazon, where people can receive bits from purchases directly through Amazon. Would be a great way to get some extra bits to give to the streamers they love all while supporting Amazon.

                        • 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…

                            The new Twitch layout forces me to have a purple navigation bar at the top of the webpage that I cannot hide or scroll away from. This means the layout now has 2 bars at the top of the screen that display different things and neither of which can be scrolled away from and neither of which I have the option to hide. Now when I watch a stream on a 1080 monitor in fullscreen, the video is not centered on my monitor and is instead lower on the screen and there is no way for me to center it…

                                In my opinion, Small channels should be able to be seen abit more easily. when i want to check out new high quality streamers with a low view count that are stuck down the list im having a hard time because you need to scroll endlessly until you find them. I am sure they would appreciate being able to be seen better

                                  Artists who draw Twitch emotes have contributed so much to the Twitch community yet receive so little recognition on Twitch for all their work.

                                  It'd be nice if these artists could received some sort of "Global Paintbrush Badge" as recognition for all the hard work they put into creating emotes for Twitch users to use.

                                  A suggestion is that after an artist has designed emotes for a certain number of channels (e.g., after designing for 50 channels, they're considered a "verified emotes artist") they can receive the badge. This could be something that artists have to apply for after which…

                                  • Established accounts only -chat mode

                                    Currently we have all kinds of ways to block various people from chatting, except the most important one: People avoiding bans by creating new accounts.

                                    Thus we should have a new mode that only allows users with "established" accounts to chat, i.e. the account must be reasonably old.

                                    Continuing with the theme of follower-only mode this should likely be configurable, with the number of days since an account was created for the user to be able to talk.

                                    Suggestions for default: 7, 30, 90, and 180.

                                    Even requiring 7 days since the account was created will make it significantly more…

                                      • New section for vodcasts

                                        They aren't live broadcasts so you can't lump them with live ones, but they aren't offline. so proposal, new section that says just "vodcast"

                                        • Make a more clear marking for live streams vs. vodcasts vs. hosted streams

                                          When a streamer goes live, followers get a "going live" notification and see the streamer as live on their dashboard. The stream itself has a red "light" next to "LIVE" on the top right corner of the video. The problem is that this, or something very similar to this, happens with vodcasts and hosted streams. The dashboard and notification system should specify what is on the channel page. The top right overlay should be distinct as well. For example, there could be a red light with LIVE, a green light with VODCAST, and a purple light with HOSTING. Please make…
