    • *italic text*,
    • **bold text**,
    • `Discord-style inline code` (greetings!),
    • \*escaped, non-italic text\*,
    • \n, new-line (otherwise CTRL+Enter); maybe only allowed for verified bots,
    • etc.

    It would be really cool to have. As a streamer and bot dev, the first example that comes to mind might be:

    Wrong usage. `!help <topic>` to show help about a specific topic or command.

  2. I think it would be cool if there were a way to hop into chat under a temporary username, similar to Discord. I usually invite friends and family to join my stream and chat but they would rather not have to create an account to chat. So if there were a way to assign a temporary username to join chat, I feel like people will feel more inclined to stay in the stream.

    I know there's probably some kind of security and privacy risk with this, but if there would be a proper way to track a user's IP (or…

  3. There should be an option on twitch where you can have the chat sidebar smoothly scroll up, rather than move up immediately each time a new message is sent. The current view makes it so hard to follow along, as you have to constantly flick your eyes upward in some of the more quick moving streams.

    The new option could speed up/slow down based on how much comment traffic is going on at the moment. Seems like a very easy idea for twitch to implement

  4. I would be very grateful if the twitch chat had a line break function. The commands and automatic messages would be easier and more friendly to the viewers.

  5. give mods the ability to have a swordfight/minigame in chat. this would give the mods something to do in chat and also be a way to let the streamer know mods are always active. i have seen streamers ask if there is a mod in chat. this way all the streamer would have to do is look over and see there are at least 2 active at the time.

  6. Implement a universal chat badge based on the user's account age. Similar to sub age based sub badges, these badges would vary based on the account age. For example, at 5 years old the account would have access to badge 1, 10 years badge 2, etc.

  8. There is more delay when watching from mobile app rather than computer, approximately 5 more seconds. Therefore, messages sent by using a device that does not have extra delay will be spoiler for mobile users. Thus, mobile users are forced to get away from the conversation environment if they do not want to be exposed from spoilers. For this reason, there might be an optional setting in mobile app to compansate the extra delay for the chat flow for who does not want to see the chat messages beforehand. There can be a mechanism to measure the extra delay automatically…

  10. Sohbetde kullanılan komutlar için ayrı bir sohbet penceresi olması fazla yer kaplayan komut yorumlarından arındırılmış olur. Sohbet daha sağde ve kolay takip edilebilir olmuş olur.

  12. since live notifications dont work in theatre mode (which im in 100% of the time) could we plz get notifications in chat that are highlighted when
    1: a streamer i follow comes online
    and
    2: a streamer i follow changes game categories

    this is very useful information to know so we can watch something more interesting to us asap without having to rely on discord notifications or twitter etc

  13. When you connect your twitch account with a game, if ranked, it would show next to your name in chat. Only when you are watching a stream listed under that game it would show.

  15. 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.

  19. When watching a stream, and people keep giving out gift subs, the chat window keeps opening and shrinking the actual video I am watching. Either allow us to turn off gift subscription notifications or let us turn off chat entirely. Otherwise, I will stop subscribing and just watch on YouTube later.
