  1. When streaming using my VPN, my chat constantly disconnects and reconnects. This does not happen when VPN is off, and is not actually a connection issue as I never drop frames. I could ignore the constant spamming of "welcome to the chat room" but the problem is that I miss chats from my community. Being a small streamer, this is unacceptable as I read and respond to everyone. Being a female streamer, turning off my VPN is not an option. I do understand that twitch is trying to do something about people using VPN's to get around channel bans. But…

  2. Сделать возможным обычным пользователям отправлять только смайлики и подписчикам писать одновременно(объединить режимы "чат для смайликов" и "чат для подписчиков" или сделать независимыми друг от друга).
    Часто во время просмотра фильма или мультипликации во избежание спойлеров ставят один из вышеупомянутых режимов. В первом случае стримеру не хватает интерактива от трансляции, во втором интерактива не хватает обычным зрителям.

  3. Make "Chat Filters" setting persistent. Currently, I have to turn my Chat Filters OFF every time I log on to the website, even though I have cookies enabled for the site, and this is very annoying. This setting should be stored in the account and persistently applied. Even better, it could be applied to each individual channel.

  4. Can we have an option to turn off the highlight on monitored users for moderation? It especially is useful for the streamer as the person being suspicious shouldn't draw the streamer's attention more than other viewers.

  5. 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."

  6. 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

  7. (I deleted my old post because it was hard to understand)

    A Welcome message that shows up every time you enter a channel's chat. Not when you click to say something like it does now, but when you first see the chat.

    It would include Rules but be more welcoming and flexible.

    Examples:

    Headline: "Chat Rules"
    Body: (Usual chat rules as they are currently)

    Or:

    Headline: "AVAST! YE SCURVY KNAVE!"
    Body: "He, she, ye, or they who dare cross this rope bridge to join us aboard the ship shall be cursed if they refuse to follow THESE RULES..."

    Or:

    Headline:…

    Sadly no update, but I just wanted to say thank you so much for reuploading if you were concerned the first post was too confusing! Means the world when people clarify <3 



  8. With the usage of third party emote integration it would be useful if this could be used in emote only mode. Some of our favourite streamers use emotes from third party plug-ins which can't be used in emote only mode. It would be nice if there was some from of extended emote only mode where white listed words can also be used which would tie in with the emotes from these plug-ins whether automatically detected or manually added by the broadcaster/mods

  9. If someone forget to set a space after end of sentence point (.) Twitch chat make a link out of it. Example: ...is really heavy.for years i try to... The "heavy.for" is shown as a link. I'm sure it will be misused in the future, when more sublevel domains are on the market. We have the it for italy domain for example. You could just do a page like ****.it and post a sense making sentence around this "link"... You know what I mean...

  10. When a suspicious user marked as restrict types in chat, others can´t view the message, except the streamer and moderators.
    The problem is that streamer can read it during a live stream, specially in a crowded chat even with moderator chat highlights.
    Right now there is no great difference for chat highlights between a restricted user and a monitored user. I know that text color is different, but highlight caption is always Suspicious User.
    I suggest a different color for moderator highlight as well as a new caption for this situation.
    And if possible, an option to disable this type…

  11. Leave a rules button next to the channel points to highlight the rules.
    Note: I make this suggestion because many do not read the rules and the rules button is currently very "hidden" because it has to open the settings.

  14. Allow the partner badge to be blocked/disabled by the streamer in their own chat so NO partner badges appear in their chat.

    This can help with anxiety that may be caused by seeing this and not knowing the person or also block any passive advertising the partner may be doing/aiming for.

    so simply put:
    The streamer should be able to remove the partner badge from their own chat altogether for all users chatting in that chat.

  15. Hi all !

    I post this message to know if what I'm thinking about does exist.

    I'm talking about an option to have the messages, from some chatters, "pinged" on the chat window (live chat continue scroll & pinged messages stay for 15-20 secondes, this option for big streamers or not).

    With this, we can add something like 50 chatters (or more), who paid this option (like a sub)🤑🤑🤑

    this is just to know if this think exist on twitch?

    Have a godd day 🤓🤓🤓

    Kind regards from Belgium

  16. It would be a great quality of life for Ultra Wide Screen users to have a twitch chat window where you can edit the width size. Currently, If you are watching a vod with 21:9 monitor/resolution, you get a lot of black portions on your screen and the chat windows is barely readable. On live streams, you can just pop out the chat and place it wherever you feel comfortable but that option is not available on vods.

  17. I have banned a user from my channel also banned from whispers etc.
    Here is the problem:
    I mod for various streamers. The user is in those streams too but not banned.
    Because i banned the user from my own channel and whispers etc i can not see the chat messages posted by this person in the chats i moderate (except when they have onscreen chat ). This is very inconvenient. As a mod you need to be able to see all the chatters messages.

    Please make it possible to view the whole chat for mods including the users privately…

  19. On phones when editing text it is difficult especially in 日本語(Japanese) to select and edit text due to accidental pressing of the bit and emote button. Maybe a slide-out drawer for emotes and bit would be better to clear the chat field or just place it on the opposite side out of the chat field.

  20. Sometimes a user maybe chatting too fast/too much in a given time frame. I was watching a stream where a single user was constantly chatting and annoying the streamer. The relevancy of their messages decreased quickly overtime.

    Would it be possible to add a "Slow down Single User", where after each message the person can not chat for another 60 - 120 seconds. The time should be determined by the streamer. This way, we won't be effecting everyone in chat, and only that single user.

    The spaced out messages would hopefully deal with the user thinking about their messages before…
