  1. 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…

    • Keep the spinner animation around as a global emote.

      Calling it something like "twitchNN", the net neutrality spinner could be used in general conversation to suggest that it's going to take time for your thought to finish, and to remind people that net neutrality is an important issue that needs to be defended.

      Examples:
      Waiting on my pizza. twitchNN
      Considering your statement. twitchNN
      It might take me a while. twitchNN

      • Optionally return the old UI

        Turning pulse off (which I will always do for as long as I continue to use this site, which will not be much longer if pulse is ever forced) effectively leaves you with the same UI for finding streams that twitch used to have, except worse in every way because it's smaller and lacking the convenient thumbnails for checking what the top live channels are and overall just having less content and overall looking worse visually.

        I was actually a big fan of the changes you'd been making so far but this brand new overlay is quite frankly terrible and…

        • Make a more clear marking for live streams vs. vodcasts vs. hosted streams

          When a streamer goes live, followers get a "going live" notification and see the streamer as live on their dashboard. The stream itself has a red "light" next to "LIVE" on the top right corner of the video. The problem is that this, or something very similar to this, happens with vodcasts and hosted streams. The dashboard and notification system should specify what is on the channel page. The top right overlay should be distinct as well. For example, there could be a red light with LIVE, a green light with VODCAST, and a purple light with HOSTING. Please make…

          • Create a "Global Paintbrush Badge" for artists who have designed emotes for a certain # of channels

            Artists who draw Twitch emotes have contributed so much to the Twitch community yet receive so little recognition on Twitch for all their work.

            It'd be nice if these artists could received some sort of "Global Paintbrush Badge" as recognition for all the hard work they put into creating emotes for Twitch users to use.

            A suggestion is that after an artist has designed emotes for a certain number of channels (e.g., after designing for 50 channels, they're considered a "verified emotes artist") they can receive the badge. This could be something that artists have to apply for after which…

            • Allow us to change back to the old UI. I don't want all this extra stuff, it's just cluttered.

              I don't need a way to "discover" new streams. I just need the simple home page so that i can click on the game I want to watch and watch the streamers i know and like.

              • Create a section called "Internet Comedy"

                It is a section where streamers can stream them looking at funny photos on Imgur and funny videos.
                I think you should do it.

                    • The new layout is unintuitive

                      When I first loaded the page I didn't know there were 3 separate columns of content. would help if maybe the background of one of the columns was a different color or something. One thing I've never liked is the audio being on immediately when opening the page. It's so jarring especially when the content is loud.

                      It feels unbalanced with 2 small columns on the left. I'd almost prefer either moving the clips to the right of the featured broadcasters or the followed channels/online friends to the right.

                      Easier way of browsing the clips. having to constant scroll down…

                          • Create a chat command inverse to the current "emoteonly" chat command

                            If enabled, this command would prohibit the use of any emote within a stream's chat.

                            A need for such a command becomes apparent in large streams such as this year's SGDQ, but can also be extremely useful site-wide, for any stream that might want to enable such an option. Using such a command in combination with the "R9KBeta" command, especially in larger stream chats, could help create a much more substantial and positive chat experience for all users involved.

                            An example syntax for this command could be as simple as:
                            /textonly
                            /textonlyoff

                                This pulse thing is awful. I don't come to the site often, but when I came today I nearly just closed my browser. All this nonsense showing up on the home page that I have no interest in, and no way to close any of the content windows/boxes is infuriating.

                                  a simple landing page is always best in my opinion.

                                  The new landing page has too much going on, for a second i thought i was on my facebook page, and that felt awful.

                                  Please change it back

                                    Dear Twitch,

                                    We are now dealing with a new threat of bot accounts. These accounts sit lurking in channel, possibly logging info of either streamers or chatters. They may be using this info for giveaway sniping, or possible future bot attacks, including viewer bots, follower bots, and even spam bots. They sit there and do nothing, they follow us to other streams we host/raid. We ban them, not like they ever say anything, but to prevent them from spreading, we need a way to KICK THEM OFF THE CHANNEL.

                                    Recently had a run in with "Opentwitchbot" whom acknowledges that they…

                                    • Affiliates - opt-out of tiered subscriptions for more Tier 1 emote slots

                                      After asking around, several people, myself included, believe it would be a great idea for Affiliates to have the choice to either:

                                      Be able to receive Tier 2 and Tier 3 subscriptions, for 1 emote per tier, or,

                                      Opt to only be able to receive Tier 1 subscriptions but have 3 emote slots.

                                      I very much appreciate being able to receive subscriptions and having the emotes available, but it'd be great to have the option to commission artists for more work, as well as offering subscribers more in return for their support, but obviously lock it at the available 3.
