  1. Moments is a feature that Twitch released as a Beta to a handful of creators. Whenever something cool happened in your stream, you could give out a "Moment" to those who were there to witness it. Twitch just announced they are discontinuing it as of October. I'm writing this to ask you to reconsider.

    The Moment was a clip that was created when you gave the command, and allowed for some minor editing. Anyone who claimed the moment would also receive a badge, and the more moments you claimed, the more your badge evolved over time. You could even click…

  2. As of today's announcement as TwitchCon Las Vegas 2023, Twitch has changed it's simulcast policy.

    It states: ..."do not use third-party services that combine activity from other platforms or services on your Twitch stream during your Simulcast, such as merging chat or other features"...

    In other words, embedding YouTube or TikTok chat into the live stream is not allowed.

    I think this will hurt the industry, as other platforms may follow these rules as well, making it less likely to embed chats in live streams.

    As third-party developer i see that embedding Chat in live streams is a core feature…

  3. I think a lot of people might agree with this and I think this is a good idea but not sure if its possible..
    But hear me out....

    what if it was possible for all streamers having an option to have an auto language translate?

    Pro:
    - People that doesnt know how to type in english, will be able to type anything on their own language and then when u send it/ maybe before send it, will translate it to english.
    - you as a stream watcher, be able to join other content creators chat that is not in english,…

  4. Often I see someone's chat message and I just want to react with an emoji/emote, but replying and tagging the user with just an emote isn't really the same and can get spammy, especially with multiple reactions from different people. This is DEEPLY ingrained in Discord culture, and seeing your message get several reactions is quite rewarding.

    Attaching the reaction to the chat message would increase engagement and decrease spam. It would also increase the value of unique channel emotes by adding new contexts for their use.

  5. BTTV/FFZ/7TV all have that option to resize the font of the Stream Chat, as well as an option to make emotes bigger or smaller on the client, all on the client side.

    This would be a very welcome change as a lot of details on emotes are often lost, or become much harder to read with how smaller they become otherwise.

    This is also a good accessibility upgrade for those with poor sight like I have or those playing Twitch on bigger screens, as the main font in twitch chat is much harder to read otherwise.

    I do know that…

  8. There are a lot of streamers out there who say creepy unhinged things about children, and make jokes about harming them or SA'ing them and the streamers do nothing about it. I think if a user says something out of line like that, and the Streamer does not ban them, then the Streamer should be banned from streaming.

  10. Currently there is a chat highlight setting for raiders, my idea is adding an individual highlight for the person who sent the raid. I've been raided a few times and lost the raid sender's message within all the raid hype messages.

  11. Adding new features that punish backseating is shortsighted and ignores that many users simply don't know better yet and would behave differently if they knew. A non-punitive, private reminder popup about backseating should be issuable to individual chat users or to the entire chat as a reminder. To describe the rationale more fully, here's a breakdown of the problem and a proposed solution.

    Problems:

    1- Many users don't know what backseating is, or do not completely know every behavior the term covers. Many users simply engage the chat and only discover later that what they said constitutes a backseating problem.…

  12. On mobile, revert back to video adjusting size to fit column chat when viewing in landscape. Currently, when column chat mode is enabled, it covers part of the stream on the right versus before both stream and chat fit the screen. Since there is a chat overlay mode now, change to the old way column chat was.

  13. There is countries with digital id card, those can be used instead of phones, to administer the chatting two step verification and also maybe age monitoring for the viewing of each user. It is for the safety of youngsters that a Government talk needs to happen. I know in spain there is a chip in the id card and switzerland there is a seperate card for digital identification, so its not too far ahead. It can be brought to the attention of policy makers around the place that it is of high importance to bring certain atmosphere of wellbeing to…

  14. Often while enjoying Twitch streams, I find myself wanting to easily open and close the chat to stay updated with the ongoing discussions. Since I predominantly use the keyboard over the mouse, it can be a bit inconvenient to switch to the mouse solely to manage the chat. I was wondering if it would be possible to incorporate a hotkey function that allows users to toggle the chat window. This would greatly enhance the viewing experience, providing a smoother way to engage with the chat without interrupting the stream. Perhaps something akin to the 'F' key for fullscreen mode could…

  15. Allow streamer to control what powers moderators have over their stream/chat/bans/unban requests/stream settings etc. After the recent change where banned users are forced to unfollow the channel, moderators have too much power over channels and hold enough power to destroy a channel. I do not feel comfortable modding users after this change, but my chat lacks enough moderation due to this issue.

    Hacked mod accounts or vengeful mods have the power to ban all users in a streamer's follower list, thus forcing these followers to unfollow the streamer. Banned users also mean an unfollow. This gives mods extreme power that…

  18. Since I noticed that some streamers assume that the same person is behind these accounts, even though they are two different people and these streamers have no evidence of this and block both accounts in the chat, that's what the streamers do reputation-damaging statements.

    That's why I would like to have a way to report reputation-damaging behavior regardless of when the comments were made or when the chat was blocked.

  20. I had someone come into chat and use a popular play on words using the words knee, and grow. It is disgusting and should never happen. I get it happening once. But he was able to make over three accounts and keep using the same phrase over and over again. I did everything I can to ban as quick as possible but as a platform you guys HAVE to do better. That is a very common joke I see used in tts all the time. You guys need to ban it. The phrase should be inaccessible. On top of that…
