  1. When you raid another channel, viewers have the option to leave the raid. Sometimes they never have the option to raid out and are left behind, or maybe saw the channel was live in a directory and joined to an offline channel with no idea where they raided. The burden is left on the streamer or moderators to ensure the channel is linked in chat to notify anyone who missed out.

    My request is to add UI that shows the channel that was recently, successfully raided to along with a clickable link. It can look like one of the existing…

  2. This is more of a user-experience change, though I was unable to find a category for it. I'm also including that as a suggestion because it provides context.

    Suggestion: If multiple twitch channels are open, and I receive a push notification for a whisper/message and I close the message on one tab, it should send a push to the other tabs to close that message on those channels as well

  3. I know Twitch says the feature seemed to cause a decrease in viewership during their testing, but there are so many other factors that can affect that and many streamers who got to try out the chant feature really enjoyed it. I think it’d be better to make it an optional feature rather than remove it entirely, and let people decide on their own if it works for their channel.

  4. Streamer can start Q&A session, then viewers can enter their questions for the streamer to answer, then streamer can stop Q&A session and viewers can no longer enter questions into it.
    Viewers can choose if they want to send question anonymously, streamer can choose if to allow anonymous questions or have anonymous only or with names only.
    Sort questions, delete questions, mark questions as answered, mark/pin the question being currently answered/display it on stream, upvote questions by mods/vips/subs/followers (streamer chooses what to allow), set how many questions each viewer is allowed to ask.

  5. Community Invites💡 : Interaktion steigern auf Twitch!

    Hallo liebe Twitch-Community,

    ich hoffe, es geht euch allen gut! Hier ist Claus, aka p2zee, und ich möchte eine neue Idee für unsere Lieblings-Streaming-Plattform mit euch teilen.

    Was haltet ihr von der Idee, dass Zuschauer ihre Freunde direkt über den Chat zum Stream einladen können? Stellt euch vor, ihr gebt einfach /invite [Freundesname] ein, und schon bekommt euer Freund eine private Nachricht, dass ihr ihn zum Stream eingeladen habt! Das könnte nicht nur die Interaktion verbessern, sondern auch für mehr Freude auf der Plattform sorgen.

    Mehr eingeladene Freunde bedeuten mehr Leute auf Twitch,…

  6. I suggest to create a setting for pinned messages to get unpinned if the categorie changes.

    Often pinned messages are only relevant while the stream is in a specific categorie.
    A setting to account for that and make it possible would make moderating easier. This would be a great feature especially in big streams on channels which sometimes change their categories.

  8. Add a twitch API endpoint for setting /restrict [user]. We can use PubSub for subscribing to the events and we can check suspicious user status. But there isn't currently as far as i can tell a documented a way to set restricted mode outside of chat message.

  9. When I block someone, either a streamer or a chatter. I don't want to see them anymore. I don't want to see them on my recommended channels list. I don't want to see them on the category I view at all. I don't want to see them in chat. I don't want to see any communication from them.

    Make the blocking feature actually work please.

  10. TLDR; Twitch members would really benefit from users having an option to add phonetic spelling to their profile.

    Whenever someone comes into chat, I like to ask how their name is pronounced. This often means that new followers’ first message is how their name is pronounced, or lurking users may be pulled out of their lurk to explain how it is pronounced. For some, requests like this may even be microaggressive.

    A solution to this would be an opt-in feature for phonetic spelling, where the phonetic spelling of the username is available on their page and when hovering over their…

  11. I do not want to ban the users that are hanging around in the chat, but when I first log in there are users still sitting in the chat from previous streams. Could an option be added to "kick" everyone out. Or place a system to where at the start of the stream any users who are lingering from previous stream/s is cleared out?

    So they have to actively enter the new stream if that makes since.

  12. I am displeased with the trolls in the chat section of a popular streamer.
    They are characterized by using ASCII art and a barrage of the same words, appearing on multiple lines.
    Therefore, I would like the option to display only the first line of a multi-line statement.
    This option would hopefully minimize the impact of the chat trolls.

  13. I would appreciate a very helpful feature for a lot of streams.

    Feature/Requirements:

    1) Make verifications and a verified status available for every user
    2) Mark verified users with a badge on the profile page
    3) Mark verified users with a badge in the chat
    4) Implement a /verifiedonly chat mode
    5) Link multiple accounts to the same verification

    Pros:

    With the above mentioned features Twitch would become a safer and nicer place for everyone.
    With the option for users to verify their accounts with their ID card, driver's license, or Amazon account and a chat mode for verified users…

  14. What I would like to see is having the option under the section known as "Featured Clips we think you'll like (which I don't), & from smaller communities: The option is to be able to select the ability to say "not interested" in said clip from either one; My reasons is that on every occasion I've seen from the thumbnail it's clips I have absolutely no interest in watching what so ever. Either because their clips from games, chats, speed runs / challenges on said game I have no interest in.

  17. The current way isn't perfect and could do with a revamp.

    I believe this should be changed to the amount of time followed in total instead of showing the date the user followed.

    This will solve the problems with users accidentally unfollowing their favourite channels and then having to completely restart their followage.

    It could work a bit like the subs. Where it shows the amount of time you're actively subscribed. And when you stop subscribing it shows how long you've been previously subscribed for.

    For Example It could say 'Following For (active follow time)' when the user is following…

  18. I would like the chat history to remain when watching Twitch on mobile (iOS Android).

    A new feature was recently implemented that allows users to keep a chat history when watching from a PC, and I would like to see the same feature implemented for mobile (iOS Android) viewing!

    I would like a mobile version of this feature

  19. I find it frustrating that as a chatter that you need to click on the "React" to place what I think of the moment happening. The streamer should be allowed to tie them to different emotes or with a word chant (mainly for BTTV, FrankerZ or any 3rd Party Emotes), either global or the streamer's own emotes.

    This will help the streamer to get more analytics which parts the chat likes and it's less of a hassel for the audience.

  20. Lately I noticed how bad the current way to block links is, so I would like to present this alternative:
    → If link blocking is on, instead of showing "***", show "<Link Withheld>" and provide a prompt for the moderation (similar to automod's prompts) where the link is shown alongside the domain Notoriety level and the options "block" and "allow" and a checkbox for "never ask again for this domain".
    → If Allowed, the Notoriety of the domain is lowered and "<Link Withheld>" gets replaced by the link proper.
    → If blocked, the Notoriety of the domain is raised and…
