  1. Kick unwanted users/bots from Channel COMPLETELY!

    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…

    • allow sound even though tracks are tradmarked if you have Spotify Premium

      This way you can watch old streams with sound if you have the rights to listen to the music

      • Display names should only show up in stream chats that use the language of it

        Say you have a Japanese display name and like to watch English streams and are English, the English streamers cant read your name because most of them use extensions which cause it to only show the Japanese lettering and not the English in parenthesis. So if youre in an English chat your display name should automatically be only English if you choose and If youre in other language you can have a non-English display name

        • Add "Clips" in the profile drop down menu.

          I was looking for the clips I had saved and had trouble finding them. So I resorted to Google. I found this: https://blog.twitch.tv/all-your-clips-in-a-single-spot-187ea5d135c

          It provided this link: https://clips.twitch.tv/my-clips

          Since clips is having its 1-year stuff, maybe make it easier to find. If there is already a way to click to it, I couldn't find it quickly. Maybe I overlooked it?

          My suggestion is to put Clips in the profile drop down menu. Like underneath Video Manager (or even just a tab in the video manager itself).

          Thanks for reading!

          • With the release of the new 'Affiliate Program' I think it would be a good idea to have an 'Affiliate of the day' on the front page.

            It would be very similar to how there are already streamers who get put onto the front page of Twitch to try to promote them or just because they're big enough. It would only have to be one of the 6 front page boxes, but it would be a good way to try to get some random names out there for the people who tend not to get a lot of views. It could be random or there could be someone dedicated to finding the 'Affiliate of the day'

            • Show full title of a followed stream in tooltip

              In the followed streams, you can see the title of each stream you follow, but if they're too long they're clipped. This makes sense, but it would be nice to be able to see the full title when you hover over the link (title attribute). Thanks! :)

              • Add a place to see ignored users

                This idea is already available via third-party websites but it'd be nice to have it implemented on the website because often times I will accidentally click ignore on someones name and not realize it.

                • Channel Gender search options

                  It would be nice if we could filter twitch channel by male, female and others. I think it would useful to have, just like the language filter.

                  Ps. Yes, I am a pervert as I like watching channels with cute girls :D

                    • How about 1 day a week you put the 0 viewers on top.

                      A majority of viewers enter the top streamers channel and I realize Twitch always wants to boost their advertisement to the highest viewed streamers. However, I also think most people watch who they want and will go to said his/her stream regardless. With having the lowest streamers on top, once a week, it doesn't force viewers to scroll all the way down to find someone who might be interesting, but is so far down they never end up seeing them. I understand, having 30-50 "0" viewer streams may cause a problem which is why I just suggest trying it once,…

                      • Include the option to use 24h clock in chat timestamps

                        Having 12h times is confusing, since where I live, all printed times are always given in 24h format.

                        I'd like there to be a UI option to switch between.

                        If feasible, the default settings whould depend on the user's locale, so most people would never need to touch it - it'd be "right" for them automatically.

                        • Automatically select compatible video quality for Chromecast

                          Several broadcaster I know have started streaming at 1080p60. This resolution isn't supported on the original Chromecast and viewers are not able to watch their favorite broadcasters. It supports a max resolution of 720p60 and 1080p30. The newer Chromecast Ultra supports 1080p60 (and even 4K).
                          When a viewer connects the Twitch mobile app to Chromecast, select the best possible quality.

                              I run a stream that has a variety of different maturity levels, and it would be fantastic if you could opt-in to a ratings system similar to movie ratings.

                              • Enable users an option to turn off the big purple sidebars/headers on the new ui.

                                The new ui has changed it so that the headers and sidebars are a bright purple colour (as opposed to the previous white minimalist layout) which is distracting and intrusive on the standard twitch watchers experience. People who have previously not installed bttv are now being forced to in order to rectify such issues.

                                Also instead of having a (show more) option for who is live on your following list, simply show them all (be able to see who is live at a glance/with a quick scroll).

                                • New Design feedback -> Make the bar on top optional

                                  I dont mind changes to the design, the way the bar on the left changed is actually pretty good (even tho the followed channels shown there seem pretty random, either show all or none).

                                  That top bar on the other hand is an abomination. Especially when you watch a stream and then have 2 bars on top.

                                  Either make that bar a lot more slim or let us toggle it. It doesnt make much sense in the way it exists right now, especially since we had a working bar on the left that fulfilled both roles of the new top…

                                  • Create community specific moderators.

                                    I mod for team Tempo Storm. Every streamer is added to the Tempo Storm community which we use to promote who is online in our website or through apps or bots on discord/curse. My role is to ensure every team member, no matter which game they are playing, is doing well and chat is behaving. This is sometimes hard to do if the streamer hasn't met me through the team contacts, or some other reason. These streamers may be hesitant to mod me or others like me in the same role.

                                    So my suggestion is to add a community based…

                                    • Clean up your front page.

                                      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…

                                      • Sharing events simply reposts, should be more to it.

                                        At the moment when sharing an event it simply copies all of the text in the event description and then provides a link to the event at the bottom, this feels much less like sharing and more like reposting.

                                        If someone was to read through a shared event post it seems like the event is being put on by the person sharing the event, until they reach the link at the bottom. Having some sort of visual separation that distinguishes the text in an event share while showing it belongs to x person you shared it from (before reaching the…

                                        • partner with Deutsche Telekom 'StreamOn' for Twitch zero-rating

                                          From April 19th on, Deutsche Telekom will offer zero-rating in germany (much like 'Binge On' by T-Mobile US).
                                          Twitch's parent company, Amazon, already is a partner (with Amazon Prime Video) from day 1. YouTube will also be a partner from day 1.

                                          I enjoy watching twitch while on the train, but it eats LOTS of data - this would greatly help, as fast LTE is usually no problem. This will also get you parity with 'YT Gaming' in this regard - the twitch mobile app is much better than YT Gaming in general, but the zero-rated 1080p stream wins...
