  1. So far, the chat "delay" value is only readable from the API by the broadcaster.
    I think that misses the point of having this value accessible.

    To me, the point of this value is to be able to honnor the delay for chat client developpers (chatty, chatterino, ...)
    But that fact that it's only accessible by the broadcaster makes it quite useless. The only point I see in its current state is the abaility to display it at some point.

    In an ideal world this delay would simply be handled server-side instead of client-side as it is right now, but…

  2. Add RTF chat support for Broadcasters, Bots, and Mods while stripping <script>, <img>, etc. tags. (that way we can actually format command messages such as our rules, or raid messages. Honestly you could just take off the word-break style for those users.)

    Even a quiet roll of "Hey, you wanna write your own html? Go for it."

  3. Allow users to set what timezone they are in, and display both local time and the chatter's time.

    eg: I am in US/Eastern and Anon123 is in US/Pacific, so I would see something like this in my chat:
    12:01 Nivex: This is a test message
    12:02 (9:02) Anon123: Response message

  6. Problem statement:
    There are numerous young streamers ( kids & teens ) on Twitch, that are an easy abuse target, by older kids, by adults , and worst of all, by criminals.

    Questions:
    1. How can I help Twitch , in contributing and in facilitating this change to protect those streamers ?
    2. Can I help by being part of Twitch taskforce to address this severe issue ?

    Possible solutions / Suggestions:
    1. Require any non-adult streamer to have verified accounts only for their chat audience.
    2. Chat audience of the verified accounts, must match the streamer age and may…

  7. Make it possible to set up a personal filter of words. Sentences using that word will automatically no be displayed for me no matter what channel Im in.

    Why ?
    Many streams, especially of large streamers are filled with spam that provides no value for me and makes the chat unreadable. Examples are pepelaugh, kekw, lulw, pog etc.
    This is a personal preference and I dont think its realistic that I should need to run around and convince each streamer to ban the words I dont like.
    I also tried blocking all users using those words but they are so…

  8. I would like to have a function , that allows us as streamers to turn off chat even emote chats (like completely have a function that disables all chats)

    Sometimes (i think people will agree) We dont want to have chats on all the time on our streams,

  9. PC 크롬 웹사이트로 시청하면 채팅 언어 자동번역이 안됩니다. 다른 브라우저는 잘 되는데 오직 크롬만 문제가 있어요. 예전에는 잘 됐다가 6개월전부터 문제가 발생하고 여전히 지금도 오류가 있네요

  10. Some users are cheating by using farms of bots to spam their chat. They are doing this to make real viewers visit their stream, because usually viewers are watching channels where "some action" is happening.
    Real users and advertisers could see this kind of cheating if bots who post via API were highlighted or somehow marked.

  11. ID display in chat window is unnecessary. Just showing your nickname is enough. (For non-admins) (add setting)
    채팅창에 아이디 표시는 불필요합니다. 닉네임만 보여줘도 충분합니다. (관리자가 아닌 사람들에게는요) (설정 추가)

  12. Would be cool a chat group together the normal chat like had a tool or a simple option that could find friends or new peoples to meet

    Being this option you enter another chat but in the same stream and with people who can now be your friends

    Ex:
    Normal chat -> click a button -> chatgroup( the same stream )

    If could draw the idea would be better but i think it be enough

  13. Block all links automatically that are not trusted/owned by twitch and make the streamers manually add links they trust to a whitelist for whispers and their twitch chat

    Noticed for the past 2 years that there has been active group DDoSing old school runescape streamers with fake lookalike ip grabbing links, like clipstwitch .live, imgur .us, gyazo .nl and yȯutube .com and they dont even get punished for it

  14. I'd like to see a "Safe User Chat List" As it currently is I am being plagues by bot accounts spammers and griefers. I know I can add a few people to VIP and Mod, but those were folks that have occasionally subscribed. This means I no longer get the occasional sub from them. Due to the current griefer/bot garbage I've had to set my chat to subscriber only.

    If I had a Safe user Chat-list I could add people to, to allow them to chat then they coudl still donate, and even when not subbed still chat.
    We need…

  15. There is currently a section for weekly top gifters/cheers. There should also be a section for weekly top rewards winners. This would encourage users to interact with channel points more often and allow users that aren't financially able to get top gifts/cheers to still get to the top of the leaderboards.

  17. Twitch really needs some sort of a reputation system for each person in a chat. Every time someone toxic is flagged/reviewed by a moderator in any streamer's chat, their rating could drop. Then channels could set a minimum rating level requirement. Have a low rating for being a toxic human? So long!

    Of course, there would be bully mods that pick on people in chat that they do not like and dock them points on purpose. That could be a problem. It's just really annoying when you are conversing with a decent human in chat and then a negative, immature…

  18. I would love if Twitch could add something special for pride month! (Apart from the Pride emotes ofc!!!)

    So I was thinking, what if we were to add a chat appearance setting to change your name to rainbow during pride month? it would be absolutely adorable and a way for us to all come together as one!

    I don’t know if this would be possible, but it’s just an idea!

  20. The "Chat Filters" option should be stored server side and global (for all channels) and not just in a cookie. I don't want to disable the filters every time I log in to Twitch and set it for every single channel separately.
