  2. A button with a small menu, that allows to delete or edit your own chatmessage, would be a gamechanger.

  3. Com essa atualização percebi que não posso copiar as frases no chat no tradutor. Estou chateada, pois não sou fluente em inglês e espanhol ou outras línguas. Antes eu podia fazer isso no chat. Por favor voltem como antes para podermos desfrutar melhor do Twitch. Gosto muito da plataforma. Agradeço.

    More Info Needed  ·  Ana responded

    Hi,

    Could you please clarify regarding the update? Was it an update on the mobile app? Thank you.

  4. Pause on mouse hover is a superb tool for moderation as it let you click the right moderation buttons to delete/timeout/ban the right person instead of clicking someone else on chat message pushing.
    But it has ONE weird detail, the popup letting you know chat is paused prevents almost any interaction and certainly reading the last comment as it is below the popup and i find myself normally trying to quickly delete or react to messages usually ending up there in that position and having to scroll the chat to do so.
    The solutions i think it would fix this…

  5. I’d like there to be a toggle to enable or disable auto emotes for text emotes like these; :/ :) :( :D
    Normally when these are typed it’s automatically turned into a twitch emote but I don’t want that :/

  6. Currently when you open a banned user's profile and open the ban tab, at the bottom of the ban tab there is just a blurb that states "Unban request was denied by X on Y date". Any additional text such as the unban request or the denial reason is not displayed in the window and is very difficult to dig up.

    It would be nice if any unban requests text and the response could also show there, in order.

    This would help Mods better understand why users were banned or help troubleshoot current behaviors based on what the response was.

  7. Some communities will notice a new way to "chant" during hype moments on stream. This is a limited time experiment where only some creators will have access to this feature. Creators and Mods will be able to use /chant (using text and/or emotes) in chat to kick one off. Viewers will see a private callout with the chant and can dismiss or choose to participate!

    We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions here. We look forward to hearing your feedback!

    Looking for Feedback  ·  Twitch responded

    On 2/2, we will turn off Chants.

    While this feature was popular, we observed negative impacts to minutes watched for significant groups of creators.

    Experiments help us test new ideas in real time, and decide what to build next. Thanks for sharing your feedback with us!

  8. Chat registers as an overlay (like YouTube) on the screen rather than making the stream a smaller size.
    When viewing YouTube streaming, I find myself leaving chat on as it doesn’t affect the overall stream viewing as much as on twitch where the viewing screen adjusts to smaller size to accommodate chat. I typically leave chat off with twitch.

  9. I'm requesting this as a Linux streamer since I use Steam Overlay to see the chat as there is no maintained apps for seeing the chat if you have one screen. The Stream Chat top bar cannot be hidden and is unnecessary.

  10. Looking through the IRC Chat Tags, it doesn't appear as if there are tags that would trigger a highlighted message.

    For instance, if a first-time chatter posts something in chat, it would be nice to have an IRC tag that indicates that they're a first-time chatter. Regardless of what the user has set up on the website, this would allow for a bot, or StreamElements custom widget, to detect the tag and do something with it (such as play an alert, or post a message in chat, etc).

    At minimum, the following tags would be nice to have:
    1) first…

  11. Add a button to LIKE a comment in chat. Add a little icon and number if a comment gets more likes. This makes it easy to see a good comment. (or change background color for a comments with likes)
    Possibly, if a comment gets more than X LIKES, auto pin this comment for like 1 minute for visibility.
    Good comments should be easily seen and interaction would be easy like this.

  12. Chat with Twitch and Xbox Series S should have an option of being able to use a controller or use a phone, and you should explain it well to people that don't know how to use a controller and/or a phone. Maybe a window should pop up letting us know that we have the ability to change to phone or controller in the settings or have Twitch open automatically when that option is available. Thanks.

  13. That's it. Ability to highlight a chatters first post that broadcast.

    To be clear so that this isn't closed down again, I do not mean first time chatters ever, I realise that that is available. I mean first time in that live event.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. Thanks for reposting and clarifying. We appreciate it.

  14. In the stream I mod, we are using the chat restriction feature to prevent trolls from spamming messages. In some case where we see the troll is spamming even if they are in chat restriction mode, we take further action to permanently ban. But since chat history of chat-restricted user appears not being logged, other mods / streamer cannot see the context of ban.

    Can we make the chat history of chat-restricted users logged? I'm pretty sure there will be many other scenarios the chat log is going to be helpful for moderating the chat.

  16. The raid chat highlight experiment is great, but the highlight doesn't need to stick around the entire stream. Limiting the duration of the highlight, either by time (say, 15 minutes) or by messages (say, first 5 messages after the raid) would make this highlight far more usable; as-is, I'm tempted to disable it, since my regulars are getting all their messages highlighted because they came in with a raid at the start of stream.

  17. Arabic letters are way too small for us to read. We often struggle since the letters are connected to forming a word. I would suggest a different font for Arabic that is clear when its small or big.

  18. Deleting or editing a message in the stream chat will be so useful in the communication with the streamer.
    because sometimes i send a message incorrectly or i realize that i used the wrong words, and then the streamer misunderstands me. or sometimes i send a message that break the chat rules, BY MISTAKE, and then the mods suspect me or think that i meant it, and then i get timed out, and this will corrupt my relationship with the mods or the streamer, and this really annoys me, i hope this problem will be fixed soon,
    and thank you.

  19. Both the default and minimized version of the first chat highlight feature is quite distracting from a moderator's point of view. In a fast paced chat (5k average viewers), the pink frame around the message distracts us from seeing the immediate couple of message above and below the highlighted message, making us sometimes miss things not allowed by chat rules.

    I understand that from a streamer's point of view, this is a neat feature for new viewer engagement, however, as a moderator, it would be great if we could get the option to use the "old" compact first chat message…

  20. When people are gifting large numbers of subs to a streamer (especially when multiple viewers do so back to back), the notifications break the flow of any conversations happening, which effectively makes chat temporarily unusable.

    I don't want to not have a notification for this, because I do appreciate people who gift to my favourite streamers and want their generosity to be recognised, but it would be nice if the notifications could be delivered in a way that doesn't spam the chat. To that end, I'd like to suggest that when multiple subs are being gifted in one go, the…
