  1. 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…

    • Custom Badges for members of a twitch team

      Basically streamers who are part of a twitch team will have a badge that will ONLY be visible in stream chats of the members of the team just so viewers and mods of those streams can identify the members of the team and not confuse them with trolls and it could be beneficial for everyone since some viewers could give that team mate a look to their channel. Only the leader of the team should be able to create the badge by the way.

      • CS:GO channels divided by language

        I think no one use the Map filter on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive channels.
        Filter by language I think it's the best solution for all streamers. (Like all other games)

        • Promotion of beginner streamers

          hi! I propose to change the order of the streams in the opposite direction.
          Example screenshot 1, 2
          1 screenshot : http://imgur.com/wc8R0OJ
          2 screenshot : http://imgur.com/Tx5YLsx
          Thus streaming streamers will be received by spectators, and streamers with a large audience will not lose anything.
          This will give a jolt to novice streamers

          With the current system it is very difficult to rise to the top
          And with such a system will already decide the content, rather than the number of viewers
          I think it's relevant

          Sorry, I do not write well in English

          • Add matrix support to chat.

            It would be nice for twitch to support connections from matrix (matrix.org). While I'm not sure matrix will work for large chats with a very high message rate, it would still be nice for group chats that don't experience very high chat rates, as well as whispers.

            There is already an IRC bridge that could be adapted to allow for matrix users to connect to group chats, and possibly whispers. Such an implementation could include oauth authentication in the same way IRC clients are authenticated. https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-appservice-irc

            • Win win situation Pictures before name how many you are Sub

              Dear Twitch, Streamer and spectator,

              I would have such an idea, It would be so cool. If one at 4.99, 9.99 and 24.99.
              In the chat before his name not only the months in bronze silver gold has.
              But also at each stage a different picture the streamer sets.
              The idea came to me with my brother Mastertay he stream Rolplay and has Several characters.

              I think so the possibility exists the often higher subs
              That would be good for twitch and the streamer

              And the people the 9.99 and 24.99 sub. are better to see. Therefore, they are more…

              • Persist chat on/off status per channel

                Right now when you turn chat on or off, that setting is applied to every channel. However, most users wind up wanting chat turned on for some channels and off for others, and those preferences are fairly consistent. So keeping an on/off state per channel would avoid having to manually switch chat on or off.

                      • Re-organise home page + more!

                        New homepage is far too cluttered and elements need to be either removed or rescaled.

                        Center content to draw the eye and have a logical order in which the user views the page's elements/content. Both YouTube and Facebook achieve this by balancing blank space with content better.

                        As an aside, I personally don't watch clips or videos too often and would prefer to not have that taking up screen space, however I don't know what percentage of users engage in it so I could be in the minority.

                        Also, consider grouping related items together, such as friends/follows bar and the…

                        • Possible solution for massive streams chat

                          Current system of chats on massive streams is a big problem. Unreadable and full of spam.

                          I was thinking one of a possible fixes it should be to make sub rooms of chat. For example

                          Stream General chat can be splitted into:

                          #chat-en-1
                          #chat-en-2
                          #chat-en-3
                          #chat-es-1
                          #chat-es-2
                          #chat-ru-1
                          #chat-ru-2

                          I dont know what kind of structure are you using about it.

                          What do you think?

                              The new version of Andriod (Android O) has a picture-in-picture API built in. Since you are already are redesigning the Android app you should rework your picture-in-picture feature to use the new API which will probably make it work better.

                                When watching streams with friends and it's a game with no timer on screen, it's hard to try and sync it (refreshing or pausing) to try and get it at roughly the same time as my friends so we're at the same point. If there was an easier way to sync through the option of the streamer having a customizable timer on screen somewhere would be a very useful feature.

                                    So my hobby is to find unique moments and advertise small streamers via clips. I have a quarter million plays now and also use socialblade to track follower increases. Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/3XuMOg2.jpg

                                    Currently the follow button on clips only shows upon hovering. How many users even realizes it's there? Why not make it more visible and reduce barrier of entry? This would increase follower rates and help support streamers, as well as encourage clip marketers like me. The follower numbers & growth could be much, much better. There's plenty of screen estate left on the right sidebar, please use them to…
