  1. When banning people from chat, rather than letting them continue view the stream live force a 5 minute delay. This would help with stream sniping. It keeps the viewership, which is nice, but takes away the snipers advantage. I know incognito mode would probably mess that up, but at least it's a step in the right direction.

  3. 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…

  5. So at the moment I run a few chat based games like (PCG, ravenfall) and then the chat gets filled up by the spam of the games and chat becomes unreadable to humans that aren't playing these games. Is there anyway that we are going to have a separate chat channel for the Bots?

  6. You recently seem to have added leaderboards to mobile.

    In landscape mode, they pause, blink and autocollapse onto the Extensions toolbar. Perfect.

    In portrait mode (that I use 99.9% of the time as a moderator) the new Leaderboard bar is permanently displayed and consumes 1 of 9 available chat lines. It never autocollapses onto the extension bar. Nothing I can find (yet) will makes it go away or minimise. It permanently consumes 11% of my chat area for 100% of the stream duration. I don't need to see it 100% of the time. I don't need to see it at…

  7. Four things TBD to improve how Rules are displayed or dismissed.
    1. Remember whether or not someone has read the rule.
    → The way that Twitch remembers it is via cookies... Which is easily lost and leads to someone being upset if they have to be reminded EVERY SINGLE TIME cookies are cleared and on EVERY CHANNEL they go. At least have the decency to remember it!
    2. Auto-dismiss Chat Rules after some time.
    → Having to manually dismiss every single time can be quite a pain. So instead, add a timer for it to be dismissed automatically based on…

  8. 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.

  9. Add a clickable timestamp in chat history so moderators can see when a specific message was sent during the stream for more context. Merged with this idea i would like to suggest that moderators or editors can see removed messages in the VOD chat so that they can take proper action when reviewing an unban request.

  10. 저는 방송을 시청할 때 시청자들과의 채팅은 하지 않고 같이 보는 친구와 귓속말을 합니다.

    그래서 친구와의 귓속말 채팅도 방송채팅처럼 우측에 띄워놓고 방송을 보고 싶습니다.

    또 귓속말이 와도 온줄 모르고 답장을 못할 때가 있습니다.

    소리나 화면번쩍거림 같은 방법으로 귓속말이 왔다는 알림이 있으면 좋겠습니다.

    귀사의 무궁한 발전을 기원합니다. 감사합니다.

  11. It would be a very useful option for moderators to be able to control the slowmode for subs and non-subs in the moderation settings of the broadcaster.

  12. THIS IS A GOOD IDEA

    Since there can be people posting bad words on chat and they can use so many variations which can make it hard to filter out, the best way would be to secretly filter out those bad words

    Example: someone types the word “simp” if they see it does not post they would use a different way to spell it, but if they see their message is posted though it is secretly hidden meaning the user can see what they posted but nobody else would, they would not try to spell it in other ways

  13. Hello all, rather simple idea.

    Hovering over a hyperlink in chat would temporarily pause scrolling. In some high-volume chat clicking a small link in chat feels like a reaction time minigame.

    I understand you can scroll to pause chat but the ability to hover over, chat will be paused, and click conveniently would be really slick.

    Thanks!

  14. When tapping on the view counter, see number of unique chatters chatting now in chat (or number of users who send a message in the last minute) interesting for viewers and streamers, seeing it live. Since viewers does not correspond to number of people engaging with streamer or number of people streamer could engage with)

  16. I'd like a (payed) feature to erase my chat history, which is viewable by channels based on my username. It's fine my chat history stays known to Twitch itself, but I'd like to start with a clean slate because my account is quite old and I've said things in the past in certain channels that I regret.

  18. Allow creators to limit the allowable characters to be used in chat based on the languages the creator specifies. Link the languages to Unicode codepages to not unfairly limit non-Latin based languages. This could help alleviate some of the issues found with hatespeech and the recent hate raids. Messages that are filtered based on this, could be thrown into automod queue, or straight up not sent at all.

  19. The ability to upload any image to the chat of any streamer, which has a sample duration of about 30 seconds, which by default can only be uploaded by the content creator and channel moderators and which has a filter in case obscene things are uploaded. Images from twitter or any platform could also be shown and displayed as the cover of the Clips in the chat.

    This could show in the chat, with command, more personalized badges or a random face of any follower / subscriber that the streamer has previously created, without strictly diverting attention from the broadcast.

  20. Please, most of times happen that writing a messages in the chat I write a wrong messages. It can be helpful the chance to edit the messages in the 5 or 10 seconds to correct it and write the right message.
