Add a lurking mode to chat so you don't appear in user list until you type in chat.
I've been in several streams now where I see people appear in the userlist that I know and say hello to them and have the streamer warn me about not calling out users. I would love it if there was an option to be invisible to everyone until you say something in chat! That way you can still read chat but not be disturbed until you choose to let your presence be known. :)
hi cousin. lets go bowling
If you use BetterTTV you can enable "Anon chat" which logs you out of chat(you can still see chat msgs btw :P).
It's called logging out of twitch, you derp.
Or we can have an option or activating 'lurking' mode which either would give us a color or an icon to tell people we are lurking. And it can be easily activated from chat options.
