  1. Sometimes when a streamer is in a tournament they have to put the chat in emote only mode or else be considered cheating. This is often done by putting chat in emote only mode. However by default VIP/Mod can still chat as normal during this mode, and a chatter may accidentally enter in chat in a situation where it may be considered that the streamer is cheating. It would be optimal to have stricter enforcement modes for emote only, a boolean toggle for VIP and a boolean toggle for Mod. Or, perhaps we can ignore mod enforcement because these are…

  2. It seems extremely irrelevant to display commands for everyone else. If someone wants to know the uptime it does not mean that everyone else does.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. When there are less than 10 viewers, I hope the viewer can turn on the microphone. So, if viewers want, I hope we can communicate with each other through a microphone rather than chatting.

  7. ¡Hola comunidad de Twitch!

    Hay algo que me gustaría que fuese modificada en cuanto al historial del chat. Les dejo un ejemplo:

    En la configuración del canal en la sección de moderación existe una característica llamada "Herramientas de moderador en el chat" la cuál si se desactiva, los moderadores no podrán ver el historial del chat de ningún miembro, incluyendo el mío. Y la idea principal de esta publicación, es poder brindar la opción a los titulares del canal (emisores /streamers) de desactivar el historial de mi propio chat, pero no el de los demás.

    En ves de desactivar el…

  8. Hi hi, i was wondering if we could add CLICKABLE social links, so that you can add your discord,twitter,instagram etc on clickable links in your stream itself (rather than on the about page) , so that people would be more engaged into your socials.

  9. Can we get the blacklist settings to where they used to be? it takes longer to get to blacklist and enter words to blacklist now. You now have to go into settings to get to it. Also blacklist no longer hides emotes like it used to. Returning blacklist settings to what it was originally would be really great.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  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. When a chatter is being "watched" by mods.. dim their chat for the streamer. Perhaps also highlight chat for other mods?

  15. Right to the point: I have a stream where i am regular viewer Guild Wars 2 game, but there is a player who plays in competitive scene of that game, known to the streamer i watch and his viewers.

    I've been mistaken for that player many times in streamer's twitch chat because of my nickname, which is similar to that player's nickname.

    I don't want to change my global nickname because on other streams it's fine, but for that stream alone, where i am constantly mistaken for someone else, i would set some unique nickname.

    I.e. Just like Discord's server…

  16. Whenever I become like top 3 weekly or train conductor, my badge on channel changes to that, and then changes back to my global Prime badge.
    I want my 500k bits badge to show at all times for example but I can't do that, because whenever I donate bits it just gets overriden and then not even restored when I lose the weekly status.

    I don't ask for it to be restored, but I want a like opt out button, where I can say "Do not apply bid leader, gift sub leader and conductor badges automatically"

    I value those less…

  17. A badge for both creators AND chat members.

    The creator badge will be shown next to the creators name on their live stream thumbnail, as well as in the title of the stream next to their name, but also will show the chatters birthdays as well.

    Weve all been in a chat and someone obnoxiously @s the streamer saying "ITS MY FRIENDS DOGS COUSINS SISTERS BIRTHDAY TODAY - CAN YOU SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BIG BERTHA!??"

    If we have a birthday badge, it will subtly put that exciting news out there without anyone having to tell anyone else about it…

  18. Chat Roulette Style View Partying/Chat Sessions:

    Take random/anonymous people from chat and have them video/voice chat with each other and allow them to decide whether or not they want to rope more people into their convo too (so it's not so convoluted/everybody talking at once, you know.) Allow streamer to make parties/rooms if desired etc.

    Muscle away at the use of Discord, Zoom, Hangouts (whatever the kids are using these days), would be convenient way for streamer's communities to become "stronger", more "together". Enjoy the shared viewing experience more a more authentic capacity than text and spazzing out with emotes/ascii…

  19. This is an idea I had that'd help us moderators ban waves of bots with just one command, rather than having to ban individually. Similar to how in the AutoMod filters we can put wildcards in blocked terms to block variations, I think it would be useful to have that same feature when it comes to banning usernames. A lot of bots tend to have similar names but with different strings on the end, and adding wildcards would let us ban all accounts starting with the string they have in common.

    For example, if there were a wave of bots…

  20. To help combat hate raids while streamers are off-line, how about a feature to disable chat when a streamer is offline? It can be a simple feature toggle "Disable off-line chat", or even include the ability for viewers to chat for a period of time after the end of stream before disabling. Also, a switch would allow streamers to leave it on, in case they use it for community features.
