  1. Abilility to mark anyone in chat with a badge.

    This could be a customizeable badge that only shows up locally (other users cant see it). There are a few ways this can be useful such as:

    1. Being able to mark friends so you can see if they are chatting in the same room as you.

    2. Tagging yourself so your own messages can be seen easier in screenshots.

    3. Tagging the person you are chatting with in a busy channel so you can easily see their messages before they get buried under lines of spam. (Ablility to make it temporary maybe)

    If you need to you can have…

  2. Channel Option to completely block a chat message containing words on the banned words filter.

    @pokimanelol suggested you guys add an option to completely block a message that contains one of the words on the channel's banned words filter, instead of replacing the word with **** or <message deleted> or something ? Just like with r9k mode or a chat with a chat delay they would get a message their word is on the banned word filter

    Could even add an extra option to time out those people for 1-10 minutes for using those words.

    For larger channels this could also prevent a lot of clutter in chat, cos the chatbots won't have to time…

  3. Spoiler tagging

    I would love to see a way to conceal spoilers in the chat. That way mods don't have to struggle as hard to police them in blind streams, and chatters aren't as limited on what they talk about when in a stream with a blind streamer.

  4. New Chat Badge for Time on Twitch

    Good afternoon everyone!

    I think it would be a neat feature for users to earn a chat badge for a specific amount of the time that they have been on Twitch.

    In my opinion, a 5 year badge would be appropriate for this feature (i.e. If I created my account in 2011, I would earn a badge in 2016).

    This would also be a great way of saying thank you to those who have been using the website for a while and motivate those to remain on Twitch.

    Users should also be able to enable/disable the badge in their settings…

  5. Delete whisper messages

    I think it would be good if you can delete your whisper messages.

  6. Ability to ignore specific users in chat

    These days there are more and more spammers in twitch chat which is irritating when anyone needs to ask the streamer/any other person any questions in chat.

    Could you please add a feature to ignore a user in chat. It shouldn't be too difficult to implement as it can just be fixed on the client side by clicking the name of the user and selecting ignore. (A good example is Azubu.tv ).
    Ignored users can then be shown in a separate section in chat settings if you want to remove them from the ignore list later.

    A side benefit of…

  7. Team Emotes

    I think it would be really nice if stream teams could have access to an official team emote that only members of the stream team can use in any chat to support the team and help promote the team.

  8. Make Chat cache all that is said during that stream.

    Example: If I am in a channel and then move from desktop to phone app after loading channel in the phone app I am presented with a fresh clear chat. The feature that could be added is where even if I move from desktop to phone app and still going back to the channel. I should be able to see all the conversations and chat logs that occurred during the move from desktop to phone app.

  9. Fix "Opt out of globally banned words filter"

    There is a checkbox in "Channel & Videos" tab of your channel settings, called "Opt out of globally banned words filter".

    I had it enabled since I started streaming a month ago. And today I discovered, that it does not work - some words, like "tranny" for example, are still replaces with asterisks to everyone else in chat. I was disappointed.

    I despise any form of censorship. When I come to other streams and I see their chat rules "Be nice, no spam..." - I respect the rules. Its their choice. Why can't Twitch respect my own choice to treat…

  10. Require new users to verify their accounts with a phone number (anti-troll)

    This is another anti-troll feature to combat trolls who evade chat bans by just creating new accounts. Whenever new users sign up for an account, they have to verify their account with a phone number, much like how Gmail and Hotmail verify new accounts. Each phone number can only be used to verify an address X times per year (for example, 3 per year).

    This will make it harder for trolls to constantly create new accounts to evade chat bans. You can even give broadcasters the option of preventing people who haven't verified their accounts with a phone number from…

  11. Give channels the ability to ban all recently created accounts from chatting in their channel

    This is similar to the idea of banning abusive troll users at a certain IP address, https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310201-chat-messaging/suggestions/7956255-ip-ban-from-channel.

    In that request, a Twitch dev gave the following reasons for why such a ban would be hard to implement:

    > 1. IPs change. A lot. A broadcaster might lose a significant portion of their audience, and viewers might get confused if there are a lot of banned IPs (such as universities).
    >
    > 2. System load. Looking up a enormous list of IPs to see who is allowed to watch on every single video play is an enormous system load I’m…

  12. Disable whispers from chat-banned users

    I frequent a twitch channel that has been harassed by a troll persistently for the past 2-3 months. This troll has been evading chat bans by creating multiple accounts.

    Recently, when the troll is banned from the chat, he's begun to use the tactic of whispering to other people in the chat room in order to harass them...some of these viewers are even foolish enough to pass on insults from the troll to the broadcaster.

    The channel regulars know better than to respond to this troll, and ignore him, but the fact that the troll can still whisper other viewers…

  13. Restricted mode for chat

    A possible idea that would be beneficial to both Twitch and their (popular) streamers is a 'restricted' mode for chat; it’d work the same as sub-only mode, but also include former subscribers and current turbo users. The benefits would include:

    * Strong incentive for viewers to purchase Turbo. Those who have Turbo would be able to talk in any chat with restricted mode on.
    * Streamers who like to interact with their chat, but have sub-only mode enabled to keep it from moving too quickly, could use this instead.
    * Great incentive for viewers to subscribe to a channel with…

  14. Let users see a list of channels they're banned from chatting in.

    I guess it would make sense to put this somewhere in the User's settings, but it would be convenient for a user to see a list of all channels that they're banned from chatting in. Channels can currently see all the users who are banned from chatting in their channel, but what about a list of channels that have banned the user from chatting in their chats. This would also make it easier to figure out which channels to speak to and try to get unbanned from.

  15. Give an option to remove "deleted messages" from view entirely.

    You are currently capable of reviewing those deleted messages but most people are not interested in that and at least in my small audience i heard that they would love to have an option removing those "message deleted" messages entirely.
    Make it default perhaps?
    Mods and people that actually care about that (for honesty ... what reason...?) can turn it on in the settings.

  16. Include a timer on the dashboard to show how long a host has been active

    Pretty self explanatory - on the dashboard for a user, where it displays "Currently hosting X", include a timer for how long the current host has been on. Apart from helping to not exceed the limit of three hosts per half hour, it would be useful for me to know how long a channel has been hosted, to determine whether or not to choose a new channel to host. Thanks!

  17. IP Ban Option for Streamers

    Streamers should be allowed to IP ban a user from their channel. This will prevent people from making Multiple accounts just to troll and harass people. I know about the Verify email to speak option but that isn't stopping people. /ipban Usuername

  18. Apply the longest duration timeout rather than overriding the previous.

    It is a common occurrence for moderators to judge transgressions differently from each other, or from the broadcaster, and apply different timeout lengths. I feel moderators could benefit from having the timeout duration for the specified user not overridden by subsequent timeouts, but rather have a notice given to the mods specifying the remaining timeout for that person.

  19. View twitch chat in VODS

    Hello, I believe a better suggestion would be for viewers to be able to see the twitch chat while watching vods.

    I belive what makes twitch, twitch, and not something like youtube, is be able to see and participate in chat.
