  1. Am requesting this feature, because at the moment you can't deny receiving Moderator access without resorting to extreme measures.

    There's already a setting that allows non-followers not to get sub-gifted, but it would be nice if there was either a default or a toggle that allowed non-followers not to get granted moderator access too.
    Additionally, it helps a little with chat security (granting the wrong username access etc).

    Ergo, it makes viewers keep their privacy (being able to automatically dodge moderator grants) and it makes the mechanic of broadcasters granting them more secure.

    Have added "Broadcaster & Bot" in the…

  2. There is something I want to say about the follow-only chat mode.
    In order to prevent indiscriminate chatting as soon as it enters streaming, it uses a follow-only chat mode.
    When using this, the time setting is possible and the chat is not available for at least 10 minutes.
    I think 10 minutes is a little long, so I personally want to set it to about 5 minutes.
    Therefore, I hope that streamers can freely set the time setting in the follow-only chat mode.

  3. Since some channels can be host to countless viewers at once, it can be really hard to keep up with the chat for either the streamer or the viewer. What if we give streamers the option to have parallel chats that are subdivided how they choose (whether based on subscription level or something else). It gives another incentive to donate, subscribe, and more, AND it gives the more devoted viewers a more easy way to follow chat for the streamer WHILE giving the streamer further options to customize their channel and the user experience for their viewers.

  4. When a user does not follow the community rules and the message is overlooked by the moderator, there should be a notify moderator icon next to the messages to notify the moderator of that message and help the channel's layout.

  6. I think it would be cool if we could use 'Escape' on keyboard to exit out of chat, returning focus to the main Twitch window.

    This is because, when I click in chat, then want to full screen using 'F', I have to click back on the main Twitch window, then press 'F'; instead of just 'Escape', 'F' which would be much more elegant.

    Thanks

  7. So people could add their own emotes to the service of twitch, but perhaps at a small fee @2.99 or something to have your own emotes and up to 5-10? And use them on anyone's twitch channel.

  9. There is times where new people enter the chat and dont know what the game is about or what topic is the streamer currently talking about, etc.

    There should be a "Description button" which the mods and streamer could edit anytime or disable and enable easily which would open a mini box when clicked on it ,containing the Explanation of the game, or the the current topic, description, or them of the stream.

    This would help newcomers to the stream and also viewers who just enter to know whats happening right away, instead of having to ask , or google…

  10. My favorite streamer usually streams late at night and I need to get some sleep right? So, I usually watch the VODs, but it's so annoying that I can write in the chat.
    It's like when you are tied to a chair, they ask questions but your mouth is duck taped so you can't answer. I have been having these dreams now too, so soon I'll need to visit a shrink or something.
    PLEASE GIVE PEOPLE THE VOICE. VOD PEOPLE MATTER TOO!

  11. In the beginning it is difficult for little streamers to keep an eye on chat, games and other things. So that you don't miss any chat messages, a widget that could play a notification tone for new chat messages would be great to make it easier to start chat interaction.

  12. In large streams, viewers often have great ideas for a poll on the topic of conversation, but the streamer would have to stop progress to think up and construct the poll. Viewers would feel a lot more engaged if they could generate the poll and then offer it to the streamer to run under their authorization. This happens a lot in asmongold's stream for instance. He might say something controversial, and the viewers will would love the opportunity to summarize their opinion a little more objectively than just spamming chat with two answers.

  13. Fuzzy search would make it easier to find and tag other users/streamers in chat, or to search for other users/streamers in the twitch search bar.

    For example, if im watching @itsHafu, and in the chat I enter "@hafu" the results should show a fuzzy search results including users such as @itsHafu.

  14. It happens that lots of people in a crowded chat are telling the streamer all the same thing. And the streamer still doesn't notice.
    One of the reasons might be because there are so many messages and emotes passing by every second.
    Let's say 25 people write the same line. For example: "Watch your bag". It would be very helpful for the streamer (and comforting for the chat) if this line is set apart on top of the chat for a while. Bolded or with a bigger font for 15 or 20 seconds. This time can maybe even be adjustable…

  15. Problem is that when user wants to write large message and there is 500 symbols allowed for one message, they want to send 500+ symbols but send 500.
    Idea - colorize pre-message into orange if the message length exeeds allowed length and stop printing of any extra length symbol.

  16. like ffz and bttv but built into twitch, community emotes would be uploaded by any user to the public emote library which streamers can select up to 50 emotes for their community to use without needing to be a sub or use channel points. The library can be used for the twitch premium personal emotes as well https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310237-ads/suggestions/41392177-twitch-premium

  19. This would especially benefit streamers with many viewers, if they actually intend to interact more with their viewers. The more viewers they have, the less likely it is that a viewer's question gets replied to.

    My suggestion:

    1. Viewers can submit questions by using a chat command, e.g: "!q What's your favourite food?"

    2. Questions are automatically shown in the streamer's dashboard. Create a new area for this. Alternatively create a new layer inside the chat box and show the questions there.

    3. Viewers can also see accumulated questions (inside chat box), so they don't submit the same questions multiple times. They can…

  20. Implement some kind of keyword tagging system similar to a # that will sort chat bubbles that have either a user generated tag or that Twitch can determine to be relevant to certain situations that occur within a live chat. Picture a College Note style organization but tailored to twitch conversations with the idea above. This will help Twitch Streamers to not have to repeat themselves and also keep them organized and enable them the ability to see trends within their chat , and helps the end user find relevant ways to interact with the audience they are a part…
