  1. Specialized Section to Encourage Bug Reporting, Feedback, Suggestions & maybe A/B testing

    I would love to see Twitch getting to embrace the size to which it has grown and incorporate even more some of the lovely features they have 'recently' added, as well as keep growing and providing an ever better service that we're all happy with.

    What I suggest is that instead of the hoops currently in place for reporting bugs or providing feedback, Twitch could incorporate a specific new section into the website.
    This new section would contain both options right there (including several categories for bug reporting types and feedback for features or services provided), along with forms for…

    • Que vuelva el deExcite

      El deExcite era uno de los mejores iconos José por que lo sacaron pero un grupo de personas considerable del chat de rojankhzxr queremos que el icono vuelva ya que en nuestra opinion, se usaba más que otros que están disponibles.

      • Twitch Loyalty Sub Badges with Custom Time-Frames

        It would incredible for Partnered Broadcasters to have the ability to add or adjust their loyalty badge time-frames to suit their community's loyal subscribers.

        Some Partners have Subs that have been going strong for over 20 or even 40 months and this feature would allow Partners to further incentivize these loyal community members.

        • Add customization options for directories

          When browsing directories with more than a small number of channels, streams with lower viewer counts are often drowned out and finding the specific channel you want to watch is often more hassle than it's worth. Note by finding the specific channel I don't mean one specific person but the combination of features such as an English speaking, high skilled player on a specific map/server, for example.

          Twitch already offers small aspects like this with the language filter and the CS:GO directory allowing you to order channels by skill or filter out maps but this only meets some criteria and…

          • Display name removal

            As everyone knows, the ability to change usernames has recently come out. However, a few months ago I came across people changing their localized display names. I decided to change it myself, and on the Twitch information page on localized display names (https://blog.twitch.tv/localized-display-names-e00ee8d3250a#.n56ey7691) it is NOT noted that this is a permanent feature. When I changed mine, I did not know I was unable to change it back, and I expect that there was a warning in Japanese (as you have to change to the language to change it), but I cannot read Japanese and when I used…

            • Higher max. bitrate for everyone including NON-Partners.

              To put it simple: I'd like to stream my 1080p60 gameplay in better quality.

              My guess is that everyone would like to do it.

              For example: YouTube Gaming's recommended bitrate ranges from 4,500 to 9,000 kbps for 1080p60. Here we can use up to 3,100 without having fear that the stream will stutter a lot for the viewers.

              Would be awesome if we could get it here as well. Along with Quality options.

              As a NON-partner.

              Give us a chance to grow our channels with quality from the beginning.

                • Create a Steve Irwin stream (like Bob Ross)

                  I think it would be cool if Twitch made a Steve Irwin stream. Bob Ross has one and it has been very popular. I think Steve Irwin also should have his old programs running on Twitch being that it is very educational and lovely to watch. Steve Irwin deserves a channel!!

                  • Make Aadmiral6 a twitch emote

                    When Dota 2's v7.00 update came out, there was a particular change to the hero Nature's Prophet where his level 25 talent read "give +6 treants". AdmiralBulldog, a twitch streamer whose signature hero is Nature's Prophet, criticized the talent because it was so bad.

                    As a result, twitch chat took it upon themselves to say ":thinking: but is it as good as +6 treants? :thinking:" whenever he talked about other heroes' talents. Bulldog then submitted the admiral6 emote to twitch which is a cross between the :thinking: emoji and a cartoon version of Nature's prophet.

                    Recently Gabe Newell, CEO of…

                    • Maybe adding something like Captcha before allowed to post in channels?

                      Hej,
                      i see more and more about spam-bots the last time, so just an idea. Would it help, if twitch would add a function, that every user have to solve a little captcha before he can post first time in a channel? (If the streamer wants this function)
                      Maybe a simple math like 5+50=?
                      Would this help to keep bots out of channels?

                      • Banning a viewers should also ban his ip.

                        Hej there, yesterday i had a troll in my channel. Nothing special...

                        Ignored him, banned him without reaction. Done
                        5 Mins later hes back with a new account. 1 sentence - banned.
                        5 Mins later hes back with a new account. 1 sentence - banned.

                        I know, it is not possible to turn this off, but why does a Ban not include the ban of the Ip? Yes, the User could restart his Router/modem, get a new Ip and come back, but this would be a lot more work then just creating a new account.

                        If this is possible, maybe…

                        • Display name of muted song

                          We all had that moment when we heard a very good song, and just didn't have shazam/midomi ready. And when we went back to check the VoD, it was muted. A simple solution would be to display the name of the song that was muted. It would also help streamers who want to avoid all mutes.

                          • Add a way to retrieve stream viewers with the Twitch API

                            At the moment, you can only retrieve all the users who are watching the stream via https://tmi.twitch.tv/group/user/CHANNEL/chatters. This wasn't perfect but you could work with it.

                            With the new "Change username" update, it gets a bit tricky for bot owners. Bots, most of the time, monitor chat activity or have a point system. If users change their name, they will lose all of their stats. This is really annoying for the viewers and the bot host.

                            I propose a new endpoint in the Twitch API that returns a list of all the viewers who are watching. Each viewer has…

                            • Visiting mods

                              When a streamer hosts another channel, the mods from that channel have power in the hosted chat over the people coming from the host stream. This would ensure that smaller channels aren't overwhelmed, and the host viewers don't get too out of control in another's chat. The Visiting Mods would still be under the authority of the hosted channels mods. The hosted streamer can click a prompt to accept the host's mods and then dismiss them when no longer needed. Also to avoid confusion a Visiting Mods badge would probably be necessary.

                              • Where is the Top Live Channels section?

                                Previously there was a section to see the top live channels. This was great for discovering new streams that were trending or having some kind of special stream.

                                Why is the Top Live Channels section missing from the new layout? Is it so that you guys can charge more money for the Featured streams section and make it harder to organically discover popular streamers?

                                • Multistream feature like Picarto

                                  Wouldn't it be awesome to have a way to merge the chat of two streams and have both video feeds side by side or one above other?

                                  That way, friends can collaborate and get a more solid viewership.

                                  Of course, you will still be able to watch only on of the stream even though multistream is enabled.

                                  Please Twitch! Make this a feature!

                                    Your front page is very cluttered and doesn't seem to serve the purposes of new or regular users.

                                    The video player is intrusive and automatically plays video with no option to disable that. Featured channels are hard to navigate based on interest (the thumbnails rarely provide good information about the channel and clicking through them to browse featured content is unappealing). As a regular user of twitch, I don't even think about checking the front page for featured streams because it is usually just obnoxious.

                                    The blue bar advertising twitch prime should be at the bottom of your screen. I…

                                        ... by not pushing the older lines up, but keeping their position and always replace the older lines. Imagine a parchment scroll rolling down over an older scroll.
