  1. Add Animation as a game

    I, alongside many other streamers broadcasting animation, noticed recent changes in Twitch — "Creative" was replaced with more specific terms in the creative industry, like Art, Culinary, etc...

    Missing from this selection was "Animation", which many streamers, as myself, think differently from an Art as a "game", and it would be greatly appreciated, for both me and for other fellow animators, to have that as an option separate from "Art".

    Also considering that Twitch's 2017 Animation Contest was held, it would make sense to have a game dedicated to all the animators that also stream on the platform.

    • Make Twitch Prime games available also on Mac OS.

      It just sound so wrong that Prime users can't play their collection from Mac Os. Lot of indie games that are available also on Mac Os have been published, and it should have been so simple making them available. Thank you for listening.

      • Allow Streamers to Remove Followers (eg. Banned Chatters and/or Trolls)

        Please allow streamers to remove people from their follower's list. As a small streamer, I struggle with trolls, and I have made many streamer friends who have had the same experiences as me. On more than one occasion I have banned a troll from chat and had them return with upwards of 3 other accounts, sometimes even up to 10 or 15 other accounts during one stream. (Keep in mind my average stream is about 2.5 hours, and I try my best to not acknowledge or encourage the trolls at all, I just ban them and move on.) They follow…

          • add a feature to hide or remove mass join bots from chatter lists.

            There has been much talk on the r/Twitch reddit regarding the large amount of mass join bots. These bots, although they haven't broken a rule, are quite annoying to many people. Especially the ones that randomly follow/unfollow during a stream just trying to get attention.

            I believe many people would really appreciate some sort of a feature like /hide NAME that will remove the username from the chatter list and possibly block them from following. If it is indeed a bot there is no harm done.

            • Allow collapsing of the new gui left sidebar.

              Hey, The change that was made to gui that has the subscribe button, view count and what not on the left... its fine looks ok. but I have always viewed streams with the left hand sidebar collapsed for easier viewing. Can we make it collapsible again? I understand that you need to advertise the SUBSCRIBE button, so when the panel is collapsed you can move it back? This is the only explanation I can fathom as to why the left side bar isn't collapsible any more.

              • Keep tags after stream

                I find myself using the same tags after every stream, and at this point I just have them in a text file so I can copy them over. Can we please have it so that tags do not disappear after every stream?
                For a lot of people like myself who stream the same game several streams in a row it just becomes annoying to have to re-enter them, and most of the people (big and small) that I follow do the same thing.

                • Extend Editors permissions to Clips

                  Editors are a huge help for streamers after certain point of their careers, and it's great that they can ease the pain of managing highlights, collections, etc, but I don't understand why Clips are exempt of the benefits of being managed by Editors, it would help streamers even more to manage their content.

                  TL;DR: Let Editors manage the clips of the channel they edit.

                  • When two streamers on twitch are gaming together we click a button and temporarily view the perspective of friendly streamer. (Ex. FPS)

                    I should be able to click a button to view the other's perspective temporarily without leaving the channel.

                    For example, in a FPS such as PUBG.. to make the experience more immersive for the audience, we can navigate the stream environment by jumping to another twitch streamers perspective temporarily to see things from their perspective real time for a few seconds.

                    It would make it very engaging without interrupting the streamer we enjoy watching.

                    • Emergency Button for Streamers with health issues

                      create a way for mods or chat to get help to a streamer if they are suffering from a medical emergency. As someone who had their life saved by twitch chat recently i can't tell you how much this would be appreciated. I live with epilepsy and during my stream the other day I suffered a grand mal seizure. luckily people in chat where able to get in touch with my wife and emergency services to send help to me. without them i very well could have died. I am so thankful for the platform twitch provides and wish that…

                      • "Not interested in this channel"

                        Like they have on Youtube. There's alot of games that i'm interested in, but alot of the big streamers who are on top of every new game, are super negative, constantly. I'd love to be able to click "not interested in this channel" or just block the channel, so i never have to see them in my feed again.

                        • Year-End Dashboard

                          It would be a huge convenience to have a Year-End Dashboard or some means with which to track how much money I've spent on subscribing to other streamers or purchasing bits inside the tax year for reporting.

                          Currently I'm managing receipts on a Google Sheet for my tax filings and it would be much easier to have this in our dashboard.

                          Thanks!

                          • Quality Settings for Affiliates

                            I think that twitch affiliates should get quality settings for their viewers because they have already proven that they have a following. I would personally like to support these smaller streamers with my viewership, but am unable to due to my bad internet connection, as it cannot handle the high source quality of these streams. Please give twitch affiliates quality options so that people with poor internet can support them

                              • Streamer can gift 3 subs per month to any viewer but don't get revenue for it. Okay so, some people can't afford to pay 5$ a month to help

                                So for example: I give a tier 1 sub to a viewer. The streamer should be able to gift 3 subs per month to any viewer they choose but the streamer can not get revenue from it. They get 3 per month and it resets every month

                                • Separate the "radio station" streams from the real live musicians

                                  Currently trying to browse through even the new "Music & Performing Arts" category has become a minefield of pointless radio station type streams. Separating those into their own category would allow more visibility to real live people who are actually interacting with the community instead of being a mindless playlist with a picture. It will allow viewers to more easily focus on what they truly want, whether looking to join an actual community or just have some youtube style playlist in the background.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Give streamers the option to upload a channel “trailer”

                                      I was thinking about how streamers come across offline, when not hosting or streaming. I've seen a lot of people's channels being marketed so when I check them out I have to start watching a whole stream to see if I like them or not, or wait til they stream and watch it live.

                                      Maybe streamers who choose to have a channel trailer can compose a video with clips from previous streams, kind of like a highlight reel, and they can include an intro if they want to market themselves to prospective viewers, whether it's someone who followed an external…

                                      • Twitchcon 2019 in Denver, CO!

                                        I think next year's Twitchcon should be in Denver, Colorado since it's literally smack dab in the middle of the country! And it'd be fairly easy to fly Frontier since it's the base city for the airline!

                                        • Allow Partners and affiliates to promote via paid advertising

                                          Allow streamers to create video advertising and promote (or "boost") their channel via the in place advertising system and the Live channels you may like section of the main page. this system will allow streamers to reach the target audience when they are live on the platform. A system like this would have positive impact on streamers trying grow their audience and discourage the botting and lurking techniques currently used in order to move up in the directory. this could be a purchased token system or allow channels to allocate a portion of their earnings balance for promotion. This system…
