  1. Add the ability to popout the archived chat window

    Watching past broadcasts is fun and the archived chat is nice as well, but you still cannot popout the archived chat like you could the normal chat!

    • Stream access to verified only users

      I believe a lot of bots and fake accounts could be easily prevented if there was an option in which the broadcaster could activate and only verified users which have an email can acces the stream and the broadcasters channel. Many of the streams I moderate encounter issues that could be easily solved by this.

      • Being able to change your name

        I know it would be hard if your a constant streamer or a sub but why not add it if you are not?

        • "View All Friends" button should bring up an overlay instead of a new page

          The new "Friends" feature has a few buttons on the side which, when clicked, goes to a new page

          this feels really awkward when you're watching a stream and want to view your friends, which then leaves the stream to view the page

          it'd be really nice if these buttons brought up an overlay instead

          here are the buttons I'm speaking of: http://i.imgur.com/djSyark.jpg

          • do a Friends-Popup-Menu

            Go back to the old menustyle and do a friendssectionpopupmenu thing. Now your too big friendssection hides all of the good old stuff like fav-games. Now on the left side i have only that crappy friendsthing i dont want to have. Sorry u r not FB and i love it and i wanna see my fav livestreams and not a too big friendssection!

            • An /add command in chat to send people a friends request

              Well, as the title says, just /add <username> to send someone a friends request. I think it'll be pretty convenient. Might be important to make it recognise the @ but process it.

              • Name/ID Change system

                The ability to change your ID tag on twitch once a year, either free or through buying a "Name Change Token" for 5-10 dollars. Heck, you could make the time frame even longer. One name change every five years, etc. I know lots of streamers who would kill to change their name from what they have now.

                • An Option to Whisper only to Friends

                  I would like to get an option where I can choose between "No whispers" (so that I can't get any whisper messages) and "Only Friends" (so that only friends can whisper me).

                  Since the new system with Friends has been released I would prefer to get only whispers from my added friends - so that I can't get spammed but still writing whisper messages to real people and friends!

                  • An Option to Limit Whisper to friends

                    This is rather obvious.
                    Since you created this friends feature it would be useful to create/give us an option to limit whispers to your friends.

                    I don't think there is much more explaining required why limiting whispers to friends is a neat idea, right?

                      • An option to disable chat replay and use current chat.

                        I went to Quin69s stream who just had went offline. Some people were still hanging around in the channel chatting so I decided to stay and chat while watching the VOD of his latest stream.

                        But with the chat replay system this is only possible if I first pop out the chat window, then start the VOD.

                          • College Program / Twitch Teams

                            I was wondering if Twitch would consider doing an official College "stream team" program or something? I worked with some staff to get what I believe is the first college-specific stream team (https://www.twitch.tv/team/osugamingclub) on Twitch. The problem is the hassle I have to go through to verify people are actually students in-order to approve them.

                            Twitch could make a program where students enter in their educational email addresses in their profile settings and automatically get added to a group once Twitch acquired email confirmation - like a two-factor authentication system. Right now adding people is a big hassle…

                            • Create an Age gate for certain games.

                              I have noticed that there are some games that are banned from being played on twitch, and understandably so - porn games from Japan can get weird. But, there are some games that I don't really think should be on the list, and should get some kind of play on twitch, but in a controlled manner.

                              I was suggesting an "Age Gate". users can watch games that are on the banned list with the sole understanding that what they are about to see is NSFW, with explicit warning that what they see is of their own choosing, and that twitch…

                              • Place all the table top RPGs in one section.

                                I enjoy watching tabletop RPGs via twitch and would love to be able to see them all compiled into one place. At the moment they seem to be splintered into the Roll20 Tabletop App games list, the Dungeons and Dragons game list (even though only a few of them are actually playing D&D), and I have even seen a few in the Game Talk Shows section.

                                • Stream your broadcasts with captioning so that we can hear and understand what's being spoken.

                                  I am deaf. I can hear but I do not understand what is being spoken. Im sure some of us cant understand or hear the broadcasters, so this is an idea. I would love it if streamed videos made by broadcasters contained captioning and they would be free to be added.

                                  • Ability to see with what account you're connected to what recommended network

                                    I connected a bunch of my social media accounts to Twitch, but I also manage multiple social media accounts. Appearently I connected the wrong social media account to my Twitch account, but I couldn't see, without unlinking first.

                                    My idea is to show the name that is linked to the connected social media.

                                    • Dark mode for mobile

                                      I watch mostly at night and because the chat on mobile is so bright even at night. It will bother your eyes etc. so that's why a dark mode should be implemented for mobile

                                        I think there needs to be a rethink on the partnership program. I understand there's guidelines but too often than not, I see people who average far less than I do that get accepted and I've been denied every time. I know that if you have a following/community elsewhere, then that will carry over and improve your chances on Twitch but the thing is......these people don't and they don't stream anything different than I do. I have been streaming pretty dedicated since the summer of 2014 with a regular schedule and some of these people in question do not have…

                                          Providing 'personal blacklists' would give users the ability to hide content they're sick of seeing and enable for a higher quality browsing of Twitch. This would give users the option to hide content or channels that are purposefully clickbait or channels that they don't want to see reappearing when browsing for a stream. Channels that constantly use all caps in their titles are annoying and we should have the ability to blacklist them for our accounts. Same goes for many of the streamers who have 66% of the screen covered by their face or 'other body parts' and only 33%…
