Chat/Messaging

  1. allow streamers to set a limit on the number of people that can send messages chat.

    Since twitch has grown in size, many people have realized that streamers can no longer engage with their community the way they used to. Even with subscriber-only mode turned on, due to the massive increase in twitch prime subs, most long time streamers' chats are still filled with spam. You should give streamers a mode that limits the amount of viewers that can talk in chat, giving priority to those who have been subbed the longest(including or not including prime subs), and then those who has been following the longest. This gives people who have been watching a streamer for…

  3. Check user message history

    In streams where there can be as many as 10,000 people in one channel, chat at times can be difficult to moderate with so many messages being sent and keep track of user's behaviour. It would be helpful if mods or the streamer could click on a specific username in chat and see their message history. At times it may not be just for one message that may be ban worthy, but just for their attitude i.e. XxReApErxX has only ever chatted to comment on the streamer's bad gameplay. While one message may not be ban-worthy, if this was all…

  4. Please provide more accessibility options.

    I have problems with my vision, so reading chat is often pretty rough for me. In the past, I have been able to get around this by utilizing the vast chat appearance options available in FFZ, but Twitch's new chat has severely limited these options. Please either let the old FFZ back into the current chat or implement your own appearance options, but something really has to be done here.

    If some of these options are available, then I apologize, but they are not apparent how to access them.

    Thanks so much!

  5. Ability to react to individual comments with emotes/emojis (a la Discord)

    On Discord, you can react to a message with an emote or emoji. This allows people to react to a comment without clogging up the chat with "LOL" or "yes/no", etc. The streamer would be able to opt-in to it to prevent it when it isn't wanted.

  6. Chat input is delayed

    I'm not sure if this is channel-specific, but most of the times on go.twitch.tv, your chat input takes a while to show up on the chat box when you submit it.

  8. Visible chat/whispers character limit

    It would be very helpful to have the current hidden character limit shown just like on twitter or similar websites, and not be able to send the messages when they are too long, instead of giving us the illusion to have sent them successfully when it is not actually the case. Both in chat and whispers.

  10. Allow Derivatives of OpieOP

    The face of the emote has already expressed interest in Twitch allowing for this to happen as seen here:

  12. Displaying Whispers

    It would be helpful if a user could make the window displaying Whispers larger, so it's easier to both compose and read messages, and follow the conversation.

    Also, being able to move where on the screen the Whispers box is displayed would be appreciated.

  13. DM character limit

    Twitch has imposed a 4,000 character limit for DMs. It would be extremely helpful if there was a counter with the composition window that showed a user how many remaining characters may be typed in a message before that limit is reached.

    I learned of this limit the hard way; one time I clicked 'Send' on a message, only to get a screen with a red box across the top of it informing me my message had exceeded the character limit and my message hadn't been sent. Unfortunately, the text of that message was lost too.

  14. A reminder when trying to communicate with a blocked user

    One of my Twitch friends inadvertently blocked me. He would send me whispers, but I couldn't reply. Every time I attempted to reply, I would see the message "That user's settings prevent them from receiving this whisper." It would be helpful if a similar message was displayed for a Twitch user whispering someone he or she has blocked - "You're whispering someone whom you've blocked. That person is unable to whisper back to you."

    Also, it seems as though blocking someone from whispering automatically blocks receiving a DM from them. In situations where someone was blocked inadvertently, it would be…

  18. Twitch Android app v5.0.3 no chat in landscape

    In the new version of the twitch app for Android (v5.0.3), there does not appear to be any way to have chat on the screen while in landscape mode. This was a feature that I used a lot and its disappearance is disappointing.

    Was this intentional, or an oversight?

  20. Stop "Conversations" Tab from Covering Video Options in Theater Mode.

    Currently, clicking theater mode causes the new "conversations" button to stay on the screen over the buttons to click out of theater mode, and the go to full-screen. I'm sure this is not the intended feature. Please fix this.
