Red Swords, a punishment given by mods/streamers
Guys... Red swords is the best idea ever!
I came up with the greatest idea ever tho.. if twitch gave every people that have been banned on multiple channels a red sword so people could see them just like the green one... it would be useful and it would be an awesome RPG theme :) I know I find my self a lot in an situation where I'm like "is this guy a friend of the channel and I just forgot and by that gives him the right to make a small little on the edge joke... or is he just a straight up cunt that needs ban" the red sword would make it pretty clear who is trolling and who likes them edgy jokes.. And then if they behaved for like a month or so.. the red sword would go away??
Sounds like a reward for a troll. Just ban him globally.
I like the cracked in half broken red shield icon, it lets people know who the trouble makers are.
awful idea. although those that you are aiming this at are likely bullies themselves, this implementation will open up the potential for people to attack/harrass strangers [with the red sword] and make the community less real for them. in an MMORPG, people with red names usually are not talkative (solo players), and they obtain their red names by picking off people who are dumb enough to approach them; however, that is not the same as a twitch chat where the point IS to approach others. face it: some people have different senses of humor than you. my advice is to simply get thicker skin, or impartially ban all people who make offensive jokes so that it's clear what is and what is not allowed in your channel.
I don't know if I agree with this idea, but a sword would be the wrong icon. How about an upside down broken red shield (the reverse of a good sword)?
