  1. Getting a constant "Welcome to the chat room" message and not being able to interact with my chat as well as any other streamers is getting old. This issue has been around for 7 years at the least. It should be fixed by now

  3. I've been looking into an issue where quite a few Unicode emojis break down when being send in the chat. This seems can be observed on both the website as the mobile client, as well as in the chat client I'm working on. The root cause seems to be that the "Zero Width Joiner" character (200D in UTF-16 hex representation) gets filtered out somewhere inside the IRC system. This will cause for example the following emoji (🧑‍🤝‍🧑) to break down into (🧑🤝🧑)

    This issue eventually results in 1329 of the 3512 emojis specified in Unicode 13.1 (https://www.unicode.org/Public/emoji/13.1/emoji-test.txt filtered on…

  4. the message used with /announce does not render at all on mobile. If it just didn't highlight then that's one thing, but a mod message that no mobile users can see is worthless.

    I was eager to utilize the feature, but without mobile users being able to see the message /announce does more harm than good and I can't use it

  5. Depois de raids eu vou para o chat de outra live, até aí tudo bem. Mas então quando falo no chat, a minha mensagem só aparece para mim, não aparece pro streamer e nem pros viewers dele. Se puderem fazer alguma coisa sobre isso, eu agradeço.

  7. I’ve begun building an interactive intermission application for use on Twitch. Yesterday, the application was working fine.

    Today I woke up and chat messages sent via IRC are not visible to users in real time.

    Any messages sent by my application show up as past messages when a new user enters the chat, but no messages sent will appear in real time – they only update if the user re-enters the chat by reloading or opening the chat in a new window.

    For example, if the bot sends a consecutive integer every second. User 1 joins 10 seconds after the…

  8. When a user clicks a link in chat.

    Where the link is written as

    words and stuff cohh.tv/store other words and stuff
    

    A user in the Twitch app will click that and is redirected/sent to http://cohh.tv/store/

    Which results in an error page on android

    Links in chat in the App should default to https:// to avoid this issue. For links in chat that don't include a schema in the text/chat message

    (I was sure I heard this bug had been fixed but it has reoccured/reported today)

  9. Win10 / Brave (Chromium)
    Steps to reproduce: Have your cursor / focus in the chat input box. Now move your mouse pointer to hover over one of your followed or recommended streams on the left. Watch how the chat input loses focus and gets it back after you move your mouse back. Type. Tadaa: Backwards chat input.

  11. Click on the "Click to reply" button on a message in chat (in browser) ->
    Write a reply ->
    The message to which you are replying is removed before you send the reply ->
    Message is removed from chat ->
    Send reply ->
    The removed message is still (partially) visible in the reply, in the "replying to" header

    This may not be the desired behavior. The reply should not (partially) show the deleted message but rather "replying to a deleted message" or similar.

  12. When the connection is lost for a considerable time, when reconnecting, a button can be pressed to reload the transmission but the chat keep frozen. The quick solution is to close the chat and open it after a few seconds, but it would be good if the reconnection is detected and the chat reconnects automatically as when the connection is lost for a few seconds.

  13. The /poll action isn't working for me on desktop or mobile. I've tried different browsers too. Not sure if it was happening to anyone else or just me. The button to open to interface shows when I type /poll but it doesn't open anything. /prediction works and all that but just not poll. I'm just a mod at the moment so I can't access the full dashboard to do it that way.

  14. Hello, this is a very minor bug but it confused me for a bit.
    I was trying to get all of twitch's global emotes using v5 api and emoteset 0, everything seemed fine but I've noticed that this emote [oO](|.)[oO] (regex of course- might want to mention it somewhere in docs) that should match either o.o or oo only shows the emote when typing o_o on browser chat for some reason. I can confirm o.o does work on the official android app though. This is very minor and not exactly related to dev but you might still want…

  15. The automatic link parser is rather overzealous. It currently interprets any sequence of alphanumeric characters, a dot/period, and more alphanumeric characters (with no spaces in between) as a link. As a result, any time someone forgets to put a space between two sentences, or deliberately types something like "notbad.jpg", it gets turned into a (broken) link. Furthermore, if the streamer has link filtering turned on, such occurrences will result in the entire message being blocked when there's no actual reason for it to be.

    The link parser needs to be smarter. Maybe make it require either two dots/periods with characters…

  16. Scrolling up using the scrollbar next to chat does not suspend autoscroll.
    The only way to suspend autoscroll seems to be to use the physical scroll wheel.
    Both firefox and chrome have the problem.

  17. While the auto scroll stop works completely fine by using a Mouse Wheel, it doesn't recognize that I am scrolling by using a touchscreen (tested on windows in a browser)

  20. We are getting extremely close to being able to apply for partner and this issue is severely impacting our average viewer counts. We will be streaming just fine and then all of the sudden we will drop 30 viewers all at one time. None of these viewers have actually left our stream but it does change our viewer count and thus impacts our average. Sometimes it recovers quickly and the number jumps right back up to what it was before. But then sometimes, like today, we will drop from 87 viewers to 57 to 47, and never really recover. When…
