Established accounts only -chat mode
Currently we have all kinds of ways to block various people from chatting, except the most important one: People avoiding bans by creating new accounts.
Thus we should have a new mode that only allows users with "established" accounts to chat, i.e. the account must be reasonably old.
Continuing with the theme of follower-only mode this should likely be configurable, with the number of days since an account was created for the user to be able to talk.
Suggestions for default: 7, 30, 90, and 180.
Even requiring 7 days since the account was created will make it significantly more difficult for people to do annoying ban evasion.
Follower-only mode is NOT a valid solution for this problem, as it completely ruins raids, and blocks perfectly legit users from chatting in general.
Follower only mode is useless, as nothing stops ban evading accounts from immediately following

Some ideas from elsewhere: "Established" could also require e.g. viewing X many hours of streams, following X many people, etc. .. something to show that the account is actually active and in use by a legit person
This is a very good idea. Most of the most harmful trolls just create a new account in 2 minutes and comtinue ruining the experience for others. As a mod this makes me feel really useless and this could fix it
I'm not a streamer myself but moderator and I highly agree, that this would help alot in fighting people who dont accept a ban.
I definitely agree that this would be far better than follower-only
