  1. Vote banning or muting

    A mod can't always be watching or all knowing, why not let the chat be allowed to decide who is spamming or being rude to the streamer. I propose a system in which a person in chat can select the person who is being disruptive and issue a stream wide vote. If majority or a certain number of people vote yes they will be banned (or muted) for a certain amount of time. Maybe if they are banned through this system mutiple times they will get increasing longer bans. This system will allow a chat keep itself tidy without the…

    • Dump "/subscribers", introduce a more flexible crowd control:

      /Lock {parameter 1},{parameter 2},{parameter 3},...{parameter N}
      /Unlock {parameter 1},{parameter 2},{parameter 3},...{parameter N}
      "Lock" would limit chat activity based on parameters sepparated by comma or modify them to new limitations, "Unlock" would remove the parameters listed. Choices of parameters would be:

      All: Would apply all limitations to their default value or remove all of them. Nullifies any other parameter within the same command.

      Interval(X): Acts similar to Slow mode, down to the very flexibility. Should, however, display the delay in seconds IN THE TEXT WINDOW, not in the chat. That way it won't "flood" the user client-side. Default (no value specified)…

      • Low level partnership for those who have frequent transcoder on their streams

        Now that twitch made transcoder a bit more available for un partnered streamers, how about having a low lever partnership for those who have the transcoder frequently applied to their streams?

        It would have the minimal amount of features of current partnerhip but the crucial ones would be atleat the sub button. Maybe throw there 1 emoticon and then the streamer can work their way up from there again.

        • Make Twitch a social Media Hub

          Using models such as Facebook and/or Myspace as a template, make Twitch as personalized as a 'traditional' social media site. Allow regular users an opportunity to invest time and effort into making and sharing their profiles with others.

          Photo/video galleries, Friend's Lists, Timelines/Walls" that can be commented on, group/private chat...basically, rip off Facebook's connectivity and apply it to Twitch. Let the users build their own communities so they can travel around Twitch together and also provide a place where they can promote their favorite streams themselves. I believe there is potential for a lot of broadcasters to go viral this…

            • Allow item drops to be available on the apps.

              Its pretty simple. Allow item drops to be available on the apps.

              Be able to sync your app account with your twitch account that is synced to your Steam account to get the same benefits but on a big screen.

              • Allow for a custom sub-mode only message to regular viewers.

                If a stream is in sub-mode the streamer should be allowed to set a message as to why the chat is in sub-mode.

                This could be turned and and if a regular viewers tries to chat he will get a message like:

                "Sub-mode on to avoid spoilers for first week of release!"
                "We are having a Q&A session for subs."

                  • Download and watch VODS offline for android and iOS phone / tablet.

                    It would be cool to be able to watch twitch VODS offline. Maybe download them onto the phone first, then be able to watch them later.

                    • Html5 player feature

                      I wanna ask for a feature on html5 player. On full screen/theater mode can we have a display of a viewers count? The current live html5 player doesn't have one i'd like to see viewers count without leaving theater mode/full-screen to look at viewers count.

                          • Smooth Chat Scrolling

                            I think you could follow the chat easier if it was not immediately pushed one line up, instead it should be pushed in from bottom with a small animation.

                            the speed of the animation could be calculated by an algorithm involving messages/minute(second) the more messages the faster the animation.

                                  • Official App for Windows Phone

                                    Actually the existing twitch apps for Windows Phone Users are not really usable. The Chat doesn't work, the Srteam doesn't start, too less options... I have tested most of them and I didn't found a good working app. So I really hope there will be a good working and official app for the windows phone users soon.

                                    • Remove the 'Your browser is too small to view our stream and chat' nonsense.

                                      I have one monitor. I frequently use 3-4 separate windows to maximize the content I can view. Twitch, however, arbitrarily prevents this and it's really frustrating. Often streams have black bars on the sides or more specifically, all this week I've been watching the Games Done Quick benefit. 50% of the stream is static content wasting screen space, but I am not allowed to resize the window how I want as the stream automatically stops and tells me my browser is too small when I try. Screenshots here: http://imgur.com/a/Rt0h5

                                      Before I even reach the 'i' in the Twitch watermark top-right,…

                                      • [XBOX ONE APP] Chat in docked Mode

                                        I love watching streams while playing games.
                                        The docked twitch app on XBOX ONE is awesome, but i'm missing the chat. Example: http://i.imgur.com/GIPTjRF.jpg
                                        I know there are streams with a very fast chat, but it would be awesome for streams with "normal" chat activity. So maybe make the chat optional via an extra button next to the two existing ones at the bottom.

                                        • Allow all past broadcasts to be seen on Android mobile

                                          Android past broadcasts currently only show the past 6 or so broadcasts. Please show the full 60 day list. (Paging / load more type feature is fine, but showing it like the game / following list would be the best)
