  1. allow users to view old Twitch account names after a name change

    If a broadcaster does not stream often or regularly, it can be tough to keep up with their channel. If they switch their Twitch username and you don't recognise it on your follower list, there should be a way to view their past user names to clarify who the streamer is. Quick and easy, Steam has a similar feature that has helped me not remove friends after a username switch.

    • Sub gifter badge toggle

      You should be able to toggle the sub gifter badge on and off. I don't gift subs often and don't want to be misrepresented by that badge. The streamers I gift subs to will recognize me without the badge so really I feel almost embarrassed by the badge. I wish I had the option to turn it off.

      • Advanced choises for when to use Release/Beta/Alpha for WoW addons

        Twitch Client > Settings > Addons > Game Specific.
        Atm, the dropdown menu for Addon Settings: Preferred Release can only set all of your addons to Release or Beta or Alpha.
        However, I do have an addon pack (Carbonite) that the developers/workers on github is suggesting me to have the Alpha versions of.
        Opening the Twitch Client and seeing My Addons, I have the option to Right Click and chose individual addons to set to either Release, Beta or Alpha.
        I would be nice if the Addons, Game Settings had the option to set certain addons to always be updated…

          • We need a StraightPride emote.

            You added so many "pride" emotes about different sexualities, but no for straight. That's become a discrimination against heterosexual people. What are you doing isn't a tolerance at all, twitch is totaly intolerant

            • New Metric for Viewer "Stickiness" or Bounce Rate

              I'm sure everyone can agree that Average Viewers is a pretty good way to determine how popular someone's Twitch channel is, but what it doesn't tell you is whether their Average Viewers comes from a lot of people watching for a small amount of time (low stickiness), or if it comes from a few viewers staying for a larger proportion of the stream.

              Why is this important?
              Well I think it would be a useful metric to have to help someone decide what they need to do to grow their channel.

              If your viewer stickiness is low and people don't…

              • Move the blue broadcast bar to another area on xbox one! Please!!!

                I know there are already people that posted this idea. But it seems that it has fallen on deaf ears when it comes to the developers that made this app to broadcast games. Unforntunately, I have no choice but to roll with it. I was playing PUBG and that bar covers up my player characters vital instantly. All I see is a white line which is my health bar. The rest of my character info is being overlapped. This seems like it would be a matter of a simple update to move the bar that doesn't affect gameplay itself for…

                • gift sub

                  As you can see now on the gift a sub option on a channel, theres a new way to gift subs which is Gift to the Community. Could you guys exclude bot from being chosen as the random user that gets the sub. I went to try out the new feature on one of the streams i watch the most, and the random user that got the sub was @StreamElements which to me personally since im paying for the sub, i would rather have a real person get that gifted sub then a bot. i feel trolled and a bit…

                    • Sub chat and pleb chat

                      Hello guys! just a random fan here with an idea I had thought would be cool for your platform.. ill start off as an example.. sodapoppin currently has 50k viewers watching him now.. he had to turn on sub mode in order to see chat because theres just too many people watching and wanting to interact.. well my idea is having a "Featured" chat that is set to default for recording and viewing, but also give the other people who cant really pay for a chat a separate "pleb" chat... or unsubcribed chat.. something along those lines..

                      anyway hope my…

                        Hi, can you create a section for us sick people who wan't to stream 24/7 this includes sleeping. Figured it's worth a shot since the IRL will be broken up in September.

                        • Create a Global Emote for Brian/izl. Honor him.

                          I first saw izl/Brian as an Admin on September 24th, 2014. His shield badge and BTTV glow was so shiny that I had to take a screenshot. https://i.imgur.com/xJHr6oB.jpg

                          I was so new to Twitch back then. On day one he showed kindness by giving me great advice and 4 URL tools, I was so happy that I had a way to check hosts and count chatters.

                          When our community was nervous about rejection, he reassured us to try applying for partnership. Later on, the streamer got partnered.

                          Years later, he founded the Moderation team that enabled communication & collaboration. http://streamernews.tv/2016/06/07/brian-mcnulty-created-a-twitch-moderator-slack-team

                          • Allow hosts to create different categories for auto host

                            It might be nice to be able to create specific categories or lists of channels within auto host. Then a host could create a "Fortnite" casters list or a "Creative" casters list and add the casters to the list that best fits.. They could then just select to host only "Creative" casters for a time and then switch to another set of casters later.

                            • Add the ability for someone to show off how many total months they have been a subscriber

                              Add the ability for someone to show off how many total months they have been a subscriber rather than being forced to show off a sub streak and then let the user be able to announce either a streak or total months subbed since they first subbed to you. Sometimes people can't afford to keep a sub streak going. They get to 6 months, fall under hard financial times and then a few months later they want to sub again when times are better for them but want the streamer to still know that they have been a huge supporter…

                                A page showing you on which date you've reached the $100 minimum payout amount, and a little information box next to it that tells you the estimate date that you will receive your payout. + maybe a progress bar to see how close you are to your next payout and how much you still have to earn to get the next payout.

                                      Gostaria de deixar aqui um feedback a respeito da página inicial da Twitch e como ela é desfuncional.

                                      Acabei de abrir a página inicial da Twitch e então resolvi escrever esse feedback, para tentar ajudar a trazer algo realmente bom para os usuários e, ao mesmo tempo, ajudar os streamers novos.

                                      Inicialmente, o layout não é ruim, aquela seção com uns 8 canais diferentes é legal, poder alternar entre eles rapidamente e ver se algum chama a atenção, no entanto, no meu caso, nenhum dos canais ali apresentados sequer é relacionado a jogos que eu costumo a jogar.
                                      Sobre isso,…
