  1. 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…

  2. BTTV is trash, and the entire community is cringe. I would appreciate it if Twitch allowed users to block their content, as it is not a part of the platform and 3rd party apps should not dominate chat. I would also like to point out that the BOOBA emote is extremely sexist, and only enables children to continue a mindset that has historically oppressed women as sexual objects. Finally, I would like an option to not have animated emojis in Twitch chat, because it is annoying and cringe.

  3. We can follow Twitch channels in which we don't wanna use the chat at all for more passive style (ie: big live events) and others in which the chat is a core part of our experience (ie: small streamers with a tight-knit community).

    The current behavior is for the chat to remember the last status between hidden/shown, no matter what channel you are on, I'd like it to be linked to the channel.

  4. Some viewers may notice prompts for key community events when chat is closed in web view and theater mode.  This feature lets users know they can participate in these events when chat is not visible.  By selecting the prompt, chat will open automatically and you can choose to participate in the event.  The prompts will not be visible on mobile or when watching in full screen.  

    This feature is in limited release and we are looking to collect feedback during this time.  We look forward to hearing from you!

    Hey there!

    When it comes to seeing people’s names in chat have you tried our ‘readable colors’ setting for chat? It’s located under chat settings > chat appearance > readable colors should be toggle-able. We implemented that so colors in chat would be more accessible for users.

    You can find more information about chat here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/chat-basics

  6. This is a two part idea. Part one is to help viewers in large channels to be able to read and interact with chat better: 'Instanced chat groups' of around 500 chatters each so we can actually read chat in larger streams and it might also make moderating easier if mods could focus on smaller groups. (Mods would have a checkbox list of channel instances to opt into moderating, or be set to "auto assign" which would divide the instances between the active mods.)

    And part two is 'VIP chatter' status (not the same as VIP's) which would be a…

  7. I think it would help a lot to reward loyal users to have a few seconds of spotlight after sending a message so they do not get lost amid the chat spam in big channels.

    If VIP user sends a message ALL chat messages pause for 5 seconds. Specially for mods... some kind of option to send a "Remarked Message" so maybe it has a 10s chat pause. That way certain information can come across during chat crazyness...
    If Tier 3 Sub sends a message all chat messages pause for 3 seconds.
    Even 1 second between messages would mean quite…

  8. A suggestion would be to put a temporary icon identifying the user as the stream raider next to their username in the chat of that stream that lasts for several chat messages/set time period and then disappears. This can be used to give extra visibility in the chat for the raiding streamer.

  9. If you are a mod, you already know what this feels like. You are modding for the streamer and the chat moves and you see someone type something inappropriate or something you should be deleting, wrong behaviors etc..

    Chat moves fast and the messages move and so do the little options to delete/timeout/ban someone. At times, you click on one of those options but right in that instant the chat moves and you end up targeting the wrong person who has never done anything causing them to maybe get offended and possibly leave the stream.

    The idea is to allow…

  10. Users in chat get a badge on the day marking the anniversary of their account's creation. (Basically like Reddit Cake Day.)

  11. I'd love to be able to not allow accounts created within the past 24 hours not have chat privileges. Some sort of feature like that where we can kinda keep out spam and trolls.

  12. hello, how come we can't leave chat messages on a replay? I think we used to have that ability in the past. Was it removed? Please bring it back, thank you!

  13. When automod was updated the term Noob was added in as a derogatory term. Unfortunately that's a part of my name so for a long time whenever someone used the term Noob with a different word before or after it, it would get flagged by automod and one of my moderators or myself would have to manually allow the message through. This is also a problem when I'm in my friend's streams if they haven't added that specific phrase to their "safe words" list.

  14. Have a Castor chat option to use the arrow key in the chat that allows you to scroll down chat comments 1 at a time. This way you can break away from chat to focus on content and easily pick up were you left off.

  15. Some creators will notice a new first-time chatter highlight is now available in chat. This feature lets creators and their mods identify and welcome newcomers in chat to their community when appropriate. The highlight is only available to creators and their mods in chat and is not displayed to the rest of your community. This feature is in a limited release, and we will monitor feedback before making it more widely available.

    Creators and their mods are enrolled in the limited release automatically, and they can toggle the feature on and off in chat settings under "First Time Chat Highlight."

  16. 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!

  17. It's not really a 'bug' but more of a user experience issue.

    When I click emotes in the emote selection drawer, the chat box fills with the text representation, and eventually the chat box auto-lengthens to accommodate increasing amounts of text. The emote I was clicking on has now moved enough pixels away such that if I do not move my cursor to adapt, I click on an unintentional emote. It is annoying to then have to delete a long string due to one single click.

    Can we please change the behaviour so the chat box is perhaps static and…

  18. You can in theory use VR interface as chat, where users can create their own personal avatar and have dedicated lobby's to hang around, watch favorite streamer as well. The concept already exists in practice.

  19. Trolls use stream points to highlight their offensive messages. When a moderator bans them, their regular posts are deleted while the highlighted messages remain visible. The highlighted messages should be deleted as well.
