  1. Have your website decide which UI it's going to go with and stick with it.

    Recently Twitch.tv switched to a new layout with the user details on the top right. However, sometimes, with no apparent reason, the site switches to the old UI where user details are on the bottom left. Personally, I prefer the new design... but frankly, as long as you can at least decide on one and stick with it, it'd be better than anything happening now.

    • Xbox one chat on screen when streamimg

      Instead of having to have the app snapped and take up a huge amount of my screen, just put a small box on the full screen that shows chat. If you take it a step further: add the customizability to change how big, how transparent , and where on the screen it is.

      • Add this as a global emote.

        http://i.imgur.com/rNqnOcr.png <- That'un. I found it while pausing the Mr. Rogers stream. This glorious double take emote was bestowed upon me *by accident*. I joined, and this is what my stream buffer was paused on.

        This is the new twitch global emote. Chef Brockett perfectly encapsulates the spirit of dumbfounded disbelief.

        • 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.

          • A button to quickly go to a stream of a selected game which has 0 or least views

            In this way, new streamers can get some visibility. Also the games page should have a section with 0 views or the least views.

            • Being able to show who you're streaming with, and linking to their channels.

              I often stream with friends, who are also streamers, so it'd be nice to have a tag that shows who you're playing games with. We have 'current game' 'current community' so why not have a 'currently playing with'

              • Allow people to use twitch while connected to a VPN.

                Before blocking a user accessing twitch via a VPN check if the account is new or subscribes to channels first.

                I use a VPN sometimes and can not be on twitch when I do. My account is subscribed to multiple streamers and was created many years ago but I still can't use twitch with a VPN activated.

                VPNs might become more popular in the future too, who knows.

                • show time difference between biewer and streamer

                  When I watch foreign stream most of time I dont know the time difference between me and streamers.So that I dont know when they're gonna finish the stream or when they start the next one.I know I can calculate with some research but if that's shown on the stream page it should be great for someone like me.

                  • Amazon Music on Stream for those who subscribe to Amazon Prime

                    Basically the name says it all, yes twitch has come out with a twitch music library; however, I find the content to be very sub par. Instead, since twitch now has the function to link to your Amazon account it would be interesting to see if they could make the music on your stream available to those who are Prime subscribers as long as you us Amazon Music.

                    I'm not sure if this is possible as I'm not positive if twitch can split the audio portion of the stream. I know they can mute the audio completely but I'm sure…

                    • Emergency Service button

                      I think there should be a button for when streamers are having a stroke or something the viewers can click the button. This button should send a confirmation to some twitch admins and if its true they click on approve. when they click on approve a signal is going out to the streamers local emergency service and they will respond to the emergency case.

                      a precondition to this is that you need to know the adress of the streamers what can be done be asking for the adress when creating a new account or when you implement it that existing…

                      • Neglecting Twitch prime Emotes

                        There should me more emphasis on adding more emotes for twitch prime users, there are only 8 at this current time (31/03/2017) and the majority of them are barely used.

                          Because of the new Pulse (i really don't like it, because i don't use twitter and don't care what is written there) thing, i find it hard to find new streams/streamers, because i always go to https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all which i love so much.
                          Before pulse covered so much of the screen area i went to the front page to check out new promoted streams and see whats what, now i never do because of this pulse that bothers me. sad

                          • Add Special Badges for Dedicated Moderators

                            With all the new badges coming, and with the addition of the recent Affiliate badge, I suggest a special badge for the dedicated moderators of the community.

                            For example, if a user moderates a stream/stream in which the follower count reaches a certain number then the moderator would be given a special badge to signify that they're experienced mods, or if a person reaches a certain amount of commands made/timeouts made they're given the badge. Something like that.

                            I spend a lot of time moderating over 15 streams with 5,000+ followers each, and I'd love to have a cool badge…

                                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…

I think they should add Saturday Cartoons that's live during the entire Saturday and broadcast 70s-90s cartoons such as Recess, Tom and Jerry, Rugrats etc. It would be like the Bob Ross Mini marathons except with cartoons. I think this is a fun concept because of several reasons two of them being that normal TV rarely broadcast any old cartoons and that a lot of people who used to watch it are…

                                  • Let me browse featured channels and top games, but not pulse.

I want to browse through featured channels and top games, but in "featured only" I can only browse featured channels, not top games. I don't know if this is intended but I want to be given the option to browse through games as well as featured channels, but not pulse.

                                    • API should return etag in response headers

                                      In Twitch API v3, there was a "Etag: xxx" response header, but in v5 API this header no longer exists
                                      Etag is really useful for caching, with HEAD request to check if we need to update our database, if channel data was updated... without downloading json and parsing it

                                        • Option To Choose Between The Custom Streamer Cheer Badges & The Original Cheer Badges.

                                          Can we have an option to choose between the custom streamer Bit badges and the original Bit badges please? For the people who like the look of the original Bits badges they can use those and the people who want to use the Streamer Bits badges can use those too.
