  2. 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…

  3. An option to disable chat entirely during a live stream would be nice.

  4. It doesn't hurt anyone to just allow banned users to view the chat without the ability to write something.

  5. Add smooth scrolling on chat (Including VODs). The way chat currently jumps is so annoying as you lose where you were every time it updates

  6. Having this enabled cuts off about 10% of chat from a viewer perspective.

    Rather than disabling it or have viewers by multiple means removing it from view on their own. Perhaps a collapse arrow for the module can be introduced to bring the chat window back to it's fullest state.

  7. I really like the 'Pause Chat' feature. But the overlay indicator message that says that chat is currently paused, although already changed a bit, is still covering the last message / chatter name. So we can neither click the name nor click all the mod icons (at least when timestamps are on).
    Of course this is only a problem when chat is slow, but turning the entire feature on and off depending on peaks is quite impractical.

    I would propose that this indicator shows up as the background of the chatbox. In a way that we could still type messages…

  8. When someone in chat mentions another person in chat it gets hard to find out what he was replying to. My suggestion is to make the mention color the same as the person who was mentioned.

    Here is a screenshot of what I mean: http://imgur.com/a/H4alc

  9. When you follow a streamer, you probably like what they say, and dont want to miss any of it. Giving them some kind of icon or other highlight would make it much easier to filter out the streamers i follow in very active chats

  10. Currently /slow sets the slowmode to default 120 seconds. It could be used to let chatters look up how large ist is.
    This would help moderators to better set their slows based on channel activity. It would also prevent chatters from spamming the channel with "slowtest" messages.
    It should also show which moderator last changed the slowmode (only for the broadcaster and other mods).

  11. Ability to have different chat colors on different channels. e.g. for one red chat color for the other blue chat color. This can also be done as a Turbo or Prime Gaming feature.

  12. 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

  13. 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...

  14. 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…

  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. 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…

  18. Problem statement:
    There are numerous young streamers ( kids & teens ) on Twitch, that are an easy abuse target, by older kids, by adults , and worst of all, by criminals.

    Questions:
    1. How can I help Twitch , in contributing and in facilitating this change to protect those streamers ?
    2. Can I help by being part of Twitch taskforce to address this severe issue ?

    Possible solutions / Suggestions:
    1. Require any non-adult streamer to have verified accounts only for their chat audience.
    2. Chat audience of the verified accounts, must match the streamer age and may…

  19. The amount of time people have been subbed is pretty common to be found, but I also think it'd be cool if you could see how long somebody has been a VIP, mod, founder, etc. This could be optional to the streamer and/or the person in question (via the current chat settings where the displayed badges are).

  20. It would be nice if you could randomize the chat identity color like the first time.
    Even though I can always change it but I can't choose.
    I feel that my identity is limited when my name's color is the same.

    If I can, please tell me.

    Thank you.
