  1. Make follow commands better

    Hello, everyone!

    I had an idea. You know, there's this little command, which most bots have called "!follow" to shout out other broadcasters too and tell people to follow them, but... It seems useless, honestly. I mean, who actually clicks on that specific broadcaster's profile link to follow them? I know, you could just click on his/her name to follow, but what if that person decided to just lurk and drop a host instead of actually talking?

    So, to "fix" that, is there any way you could make it so the "@" would make that person's name clickable, the same…

    • An easy way display information about streams

      A problem that often arises when you are on a stream for quite som while is that ppl often ask the same questions. Therefor it exists commands, but you need to know those commands beforehand to be able to use them. So why not, above the chat on the right side, set a few #hashtags like #results, and other those tags there is answers to the most common questions asked in streams. The streamer them self can ofc choose different information.

      • Middle mouse button to open recommended games in new tab

        Hey I noticed you just released a new feature that shows your frequently visited games above all others in the directory.
        Unfortunately I very much dislike this update because I can no longer use my middle mouse button click to open up those games in a new tab :(
        It's such a bother to have to right click and select "open in new tab" now or just click and check one by one if there are any streams I like on. Small issue but I'm assuming it would be an easy fix if you don't mind.

        • Partnership Trials

          Maybe add a trial to those applying for partnership that might not exactly meet the exact guidelines. Set up a temporary button and let people sub and maybe hold the money for say, like a week or so and if the streamers gets a certain amount of subs, they can get permanent partnership and if they don't reach the required amount, refund the money. Kind of like how some of those shirt companies only complete and ship if they reach a certain amount of sales.

          My stats have been pretty decent but I keep getting denied and I know a…

          • Default language view for /directory/games/creative

            You know how one can filter the channels view to show only your default language... I'd like to be able to choose the default language for /directory/game/creative as well.
            One can do this manually (so apparently it is implemented in the api) by adding /de/ (for German language e.g.) to the end of the url:

            https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Creative/de

            I'd like to see this in the user interface for /creative for easy access to creative streams in your default language.
            Thank you.

              Some sort of LIVE EVENTS or sporting events directory. I own a nationwide powerlifting business and would love to livestream the events on Twitch. As you know, lifting and fitness is a growing popular trend these days, I think that category would explode if given the chance to begin. I would certainly stream my powerlifting events across the USA on Twitch for others to watch.

                • Allow a Super Source quality option for Twitch Turbo subscribers

                  Allow partnered streamers to provide an additional, higher bitrate stream to allow viewers with fast internet and computers to watch at 1080p/60fps. I understand the bandwidth issues, but I would be willing to pay $9/month for this. Finally give Turbo a reason to exist.

                  • Twitch controls everything I do for a week.

                    Basically, twitch controls a real life human being for a week. Despite the fact I'd be sentenced to Death Row almost immediately (obviously there should be some checks and balances) - it would probably prove very interesting to the people at large.

                    • Make more "Virtual Reality" Category's

                      I see you recently added "Virtual Reality" Category which will help people out that are looking for VR Streams, But one or two side notes on that. 1) There is more then one VR headset out there and some people prefer one over another (Oculus Rift, Hive,PSVR).
                      2) There is many different types of VR so Sub-Category's would be good because VR Poker ( CasinoVR ) and a 1st Person Shooter wouldn't be very easy to find the Person you want to watch.

                      • Disallow broadcasters putting chat on stream.

                        When broadcasters put chat on the screen it undermines viewers' ability to use the ignore feature or to close chat. If the broadcaster has chat on screen, I'm forced to see it whether I want to or not.

                            Please add the ability to filter games by genre so for instance If I click on the games tab I would then be met with the ability to filter the game list by genre of game (Adventure, RTS, MMO, etc) this would allow users to find the content they feel like viewing much more easily and would allow streamers who are not streaming top viewed games far more exposure with the current system if you are not streaming a one of the games near the top of the game list there is almost no chance of anyone finding your channel…

                                  It happens frequently... you're watching a game, and BOOM your favorite streamer's head is right in the way of what you want to look at...

                                  You could beg the streamer in chat to move his Camera Box...
                                  Most likely missing the action you were so desperate to see...

                                  Or Twitch could implement a protocol to allow us to freely move the streamer's Camera Box client side, with no impact to the streamer...

                                  Never miss what you want to see again, simply grab the streamer's head with your mouse and drag said streamer out of the way!
                                  Oh the power us…

                                    Everytime i log in i get a channel that show cleavage to sell and being artistic (drawing). Im rellay into watching the moba scene and speedruns but i have no control over what i get on the frontpage. Its totally okay that i get 1-3 random stuff but really all being artistic and i puke. I guess all the artistic ppl feel the same but reversed, is there any possibility you could add preference to accounts that is logged in and give us a frontpage accordingly? To be clear, its not a gender issue, i love some of the female…

                                    • Implement additional audio track option for streamers to put music there, viewer can enable or disable streamer's music track

                                      Many broadcasters like to play music during the stream which may be pretty annoying or you just prefer your own music. It would be great if broadcaster's music track would be a separate PID in a stream and may be disabled by a viewer.

                                      • How about a "Like" or "Favorite" feature, for Highlights?

                                        Now, this would serve multiple purposes:

                                        1. Any highlights we "Favorited" would be saved on a playlist on our profile page, similar to how Youtube does it. This would allow us to easily re-watch those highlights and would be a great way for us to share them with others who come across our channel.

                                        2. A streamer's highlights could be organized on their channel by "Most Liked" and "Most Recent".
                                        When I view highlights I tend to watch the ones with the most views. That doesn't necessarily mean it'll be entertaining, but it's all I have to go by. Having…
