  1. I have some Community Members for 3+ years now and sometimes I’d love to see their very first chat message just to see how it all began!
    I would be so cool if we could have a jump to top feature to see their first chat messages!
    Nostalgia, walk down memory lane. All those things. :)

  2. Polls are great, but the limited time scales hinders their usefulness.

    An hour to choose what people want to see at the start of a stream would be great.

    Multi-day/no limit polls would be good for questions you want a wider opinion of. Some viewers are only on at the weekend etc, easy to miss their opinion, forcing us to use external tools or discord (it would be preferable for us all to keep this interaction on twitch)

  5. A better way to see what a user has clipped from a stream would make it much easier to see what kind of user you're dealing with especially when it comes to users making clips that take things said out of context or allowing you to see when a user is regularly clipping when a streamer does something as innocuous a standing up or picking something up off the floor

  6. Allow Moderators to mark deleted text with flags (such as SPOILER for game spoilers, or TOS for issues which may require suspension/banning now/later)

    Some broadcasters want to verify why people were moderated, and they don't want to risk reading deleted/purged chat messages only to come across a current game spoiler they were trying to avoid.

    When moderators delete the text of a user, if they could later click on it in the message history and flag it with <SPOILER></SPOILER> or <TOS></TOS> it would be great.

  7. Observed Behaviour:
    Given chat is enabled,
    and given the browser window is less than 920 pixels wide,
    and given the browser window is more than 786 pixels high,
    when a user enables theatre mode,
    then chat is shown below the stream,
    and then there is no button to hide chat.

    Expected Behaviour:
    Given there is enough space vertically (currently 170px in addition to the stream player),
    then there is a button to show/hide chat.

  8. Having to drop 1 or more out of 5 tags to display to viewers the presence of an accessibility tool disincentivizes to use e.g. the "Closed Captions" tag.

    I am not aware if other accessibility tags exits and if they do, if they could be automatic tags as well. Alternatively, accessibility tags should simply not count towards the 5 tags limit, since they convey crucial information to potential viewers with disabilities.

  9. It's very important to implement filters, because i need, for example, to view firt message from specific user, or view messages per month, by keyword, and so on. Implement many filters please. Thanks.

  10. We need Gifs added to chat for more interesting experience. Plus a Gif only chat would be extra funny and keep things awesome.

  12. It would be nice if a MOD could deleat a messages from himself or another MOD.
    No one is perfect, maybe its a small spoiler or a word that is not fitting for a MOD.
    And sometime the Streamer cant go out of the Stream or would destroy a challange run.
    So it would be nice if a MOD could deleat a messages from himself or another MOD.

  13. To add an option for caster and moderators to anonymously flag a chatter/viewer for tracking.

    For example: allow a caster/moderator for which the stream has low restrictions on account creation to flag a chatter that has an account created in the last few days for better visibility, be it immediate or in the future.

    Kinda like a flag for suspicious accounts manually set by the moderation.

  14. When a mod deletes a message because of a rules violation of the steam a link to those rules should be in the deleted message. This could help the mods in a few ways. They would not have to spam messages in the chat about not using caps or spamming with a message that has words all in caps. they could just delete the message and it have a link in the deleted message so the user is not left to say, "WTF, why was my message deleted". Then they have to be told to read the rules, it is…

  15. Change the chat to two separate areas, one for question and answers for classes, and one for just chatting during class. Also the option to save the chat for class questions and answers. Thank you.

  16. Would love to have voice chat mode, where the viewers are basically like a movie audience, where reactions like laughing are allowed, but no conversations allowed and are closely monitored by moderators of the chat. It would connect the chat a lot more.

  18. Add a feature to allow 'Followers Only' mode to be disabled, for a duration, equal to the 'Followers-Only chat, or a stated 'duration'. Maybe even have the option to automate it following a raid / host.

    This would help streamers who get raided / hosted to allow the new viewers to interract with chat immediately and for that duration, in the hope that the new viewers will follow.

  19. I actually don't like when a streamer acknowledges me in any type of stream. I tend to not want to stay, but, if there was a way to let a streamer know so I could still stay, that can help both of us
    Or I'm watching with family on the TV or just by myself it's jarring if you're doing chores or work. Scary even. Maybe a way to say "TV" or "Casual" or "theatre mode" as if you the audience member is sitting to watch (but not participate).

    It resembles going to a concert.

  20. Allowing all moderators to see when any moderator used /marker in chat would help to prevent confusion as to wether or not a marker was added upon broadcaster request.
