  1. We are experimenting with a new feature that allows new viewers in a channel to introduce themselves via a simple prompt. Messages sent through this feature will be highlighted to the rest of Chat with an invitation to welcome the user via chat reply or @mention. This feature is in a limited release, and we will monitor feedback before deciding whether to make it more widely available.

    Channels are enrolled in the experiment automatically and randomly, and creators can toggle the feature on and off in their Moderation settings under Chat Options: https://dashboard.twitch.tv/settings/moderation

  3. Hi,

    Blocked users messages still pop in chat but hidden behind click, however it may be due to me being moderator. If I choose to not wanting to see them, what do I do?

    The "click here to show the message" is even more eye catching than the normal messages, so it doesnt really work for me.

    If a user blocks a moderator, can they still see the messages I wonder?

    Either way, I would prefer the messages to not show up at all, me being mod or not. Personal reasons.

  4. If a user has a localized display name it will not be possible to use their name to query something from the api since it does not accept non English characters.

    The /mods command already returns login names so the /vips command should do that too.

    The command also returns usernames sorted alphabetically but when using the twitch web chat the command sorts usernames by the order they were added as a mod/vip so the irc command should match that behavior.

  5. Please let us turn off chat notification for contributions to channel points community challenges. If there are a lot of people contributing to the challenge the chat is spammed with the notifications.

  6. The banned chatters list is nowhere near a complete list of people I've banned, and it's not even in order of a person having been banned. There is no order to it. Please allow us to see the entire list of banned names.

  7. You shouldn't have to deal with anyone ever again if you have them blocked. I recently had to block a friend because he was toxic but we are apart of the same community and so even with me blocking them, i still can see them being @'d and their name in chatlist also if you get blocked by someone why can you still see what their saying. Similar to Twitter if you are blocked by someone you shouldn't be able to see any interactions.

  8. Some Channels don't allow links to be posted in the chat, including twitch.tv links.

    I believe this is mostly to prevent spam and unwanted advertisement.

    An exception for twitch.tv links wouldn't hurt so we can post twitch-related content (maybe with a Option for Streamer's own Channel-related content only).

    ..This way I can share a Clipped stream highlight other than Reddit.

  9. cleaner chat: after using streamlabs chat overlay for a while, i wish twitch chat had some of the options that the streamlabs chatbox has:
    1) filter out commands starting with "!"
    2) filter out bots
    by enabling those options, it would allow the streamer to see viewer messagesmore clearly by filtering out commands and bot responses

  10. I wish I could use emotes such as :) and :( instead of the robot faces, they just express my feelings far more accurately and the robots should be optional

  11. The "click message to reply" feature is distracting and does not read easily, can be especially annoying when you are trying to mod for a channel. Its a lot clearer just @'ing the person you want to talk to.

  12. Currently, Moderators, specifically bots, messages get delayed by the chat delay setting for viewers. Allow moderators to be exempted from this delay or allow selected users, such as bots, exempt from this delay chatting.

  13. Twitch betting.
    With polls already existing a betting system could be brought in. A rough idea on how it could work -
    A and B streamers are in the same team of a call of duty match and they start a poll (bet) on who will finish the match with more kills and viewers can bet on their choice of player ( A or B ). For eg. a 100 people bet 1$ each (preset odds are 1 for both) on this poll where 60 chose A and 40 chose B. B ends up winning the bet hence the voters…

  15. A twitch poderia criar uma opção para deixar os usuários mais confortáveis, já que, tem streammer que falam palavras de baixo escalão e para quem tem família, não dá para ficar escutando essas palavras por conta de filhos e demais familiares. Poderiam colocar essa opção de " silenciar microfone do streamer" e escutar apenas o que estiver ao fundo, seja uma música que o streamer colocou ou o som ambiente do game.

  16. Guten Tag, ich bin mittlerweile wirklich genervt von diesen Only-Emote-Spams im Chat, weil man den Chat einfach nicht mehr lesen kann. Deshalb wünsche ich mir unten in den Chat-Einstellungen eine Option, womit ich Postings mit nur Emotes ausblenden lassen kann und nur Texte und Texte mit Emotes angezeigt bleiben. Wichtig dabei wäre auch eine Prüfung, die Texte mit weniger Text als Emotes ausblendet. Da es wieder Trolls geben wird, die versuchen werden die Only Emote Funktion auszubooten und ein A vor die Emotes setzten, um andere zu belästigen.

    Hello, I'm really getting annoyed by this only emote spam in the…

  17. Seria legal se tivesse um distintivo de moderador baseado em voto de streamers. Por exemplo, alguém que é moderador em vários canais e ajuda ativamente esses canais, ser indicado por cada streamer pra ter um distintivo oficial da twitch!

  18. Many Twitch channels are essentially podcasts, auditory ASMR, and otherwise are just fun to listen to. Sometimes people will also have multiple streams open in the event of a collaboration and be regularly switching back and forth.

    It doesn't make sense to only make a view count on the active tab when people are bound to multitask. I'm sure it is because of advertisers, but ads have audio cues as well. Not to mention, a lot of times the people who will inevitably be multitasking (because who can sit still for a 6+ hour stream) are subs who have shown…

  19. I would love for the viewers of the stream to have some sort of indicator next to their name or the viewer counter to tell them when they are or are not being counted as a viewer. It can kill a streamer when their viewership drops and sometimes someone who is watching won't be counted for seemingly no reason.
