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 difficult for people to do annoying ban evasion.
Follower-only mode is NOT a valid solution for this problem, as it completely ruins raids, and blocks perfectly legit users from chatting in general.

Some ideas from elsewhere: "Established" could also require e.g. viewing X many hours of streams, following X many people, etc. .. something to show that the account is actually active and in use by a legit person
This is a very good idea. Most of the most harmful trolls just create a new account in 2 minutes and comtinue ruining the experience for others. As a mod this makes me feel really useless and this could fix it
I'm not a streamer myself but moderator and I highly agree, that this would help alot in fighting people who dont accept a ban.
I definitely agree that this would be far better than follower-only
