  1. So, I was chatting and I noticed my timestamps were 7 minutes ahead of everyone else's. I re-synced my system clock via NTP...but then I wasn't able to chat for ~7 minutes because my previous message was sent from what my computer considered seven minutes IN THE FUTURE, triggering the flood protection message cooldown.

    I imagine it works in the other direction as well, in which case there's no way this isn't somehow exploitable.

    What other time-based protection is handled client-side in defiance of all reason? The timer to be let into follower-only chat after following? Moderation timeouts? I can't…

  3. Hola.
    A la hora de querer participar en el chat de un streamer (chat modo lento), me deja solo enviar un solo comentario y después twitch o algo me bloquea o banea y no puedo comentar mas... me sale el mensaje de "Puedes chatear en 1 s 1 d" no se si es un bug, o el tiempo de espera para volver a mandar otro mensaje es ridiculo... "una semana"

    Me comunique con los moderadores del streamer que estaba viendo y me comentan que ellos no me aplicaron ningún ban o sanción y sospechan que es algo mas...

    Demás esta…

  4. Im Moment hab ich das Problem das keiner der Twitchchats nach einer bestimmten Zeit automatisch aktualisiert, als Streamer/Mod muss man dieses manuell refreshen. Egal ob auf der PS4x, übers IPhone oder übers IPad. Mehrere Anfragen des Supportes waren vergebens. Wann genau wird dieses Problem gefixt?

  5. At the moment, only the default "/announce" chat command works with IRC (chatbots etc) - "/announceblue", "/announcegreen", "/announceorange", and "/announcepurple" all fail to send messages.

  6. To repro: Type one of the following words into the editor, then hit the spacebar: __proto__, constructor, hasOwnProperty, isPrototypeOf, propertyIsEnumerable, toLocaleString, toString, valueOf

    To fix: always use hasOwnProperty & getOwnProperty to access an object's properties, not brackets.

  7. Recently when emotes are typed into the chatbox, they'll show as actual images in the chatbox rather than as text only like they used to. However this seems to cause serious lag issues and, after a while, slows the response speed for typing to the point where the whole page or chat pop-out has to be refreshed.

    It reacts poorly with third party extensions like bttv/ffz that use autocomplete using the tab button, by prioritising twitch global emotes over channel and bttv emotes, or by deleting half the message text and trying to autocomplete from a random word mid sentence.

  8. I can't chat in certain channels anymore that I used to, and the streamers that I spoke to about it haven't changed any moderation settings between me being able to chat and me not being able to chat. It's a problem across multiple channels and persists across multiple platforms and apps.
    The problem began on either May 25th or May 26th.
    Twitch support suggested I bring up the issue here.

  9. It's been 10+ days i'm getting "Verified Accounts only chat" in EVERY single channel i try to chat, even in those where i'm sure the "Verified only" feature is disabled. I'm pretty sure it's either a bug or my account has been flagged in some way, because if i try to chat in those same channels with a different account i can do it without any problem.
    I've also read in some other Ideas here that other users are having this bug... Unfortunately i can't add my Phone number to verification at the current time, so please look into this,…

  11. With the removal of channel views - a good change, it was a redundant stat anyways - it stopped the number of channel views from going up, since it was no longer being counted. Issue being, clicking on a newer streamer's name in chat and bringing up their little user card, they will have 50-100 followers, whatever, but 0 channel views because they aren't being counted. It makes them look like they botted their followers and don't even stream. Might just be a overlook in the UI?

  12. Just a small visual bug I have encountered in a very specific window size but It could be useful to fix it to prevent future clipping with other elements.

    I think the emotes pop z index could be changed up to be the same z-index as other overlays. To prevent it from clipping with other chat elements, currently the stream title

    I believe it to be: --z-index-overlay: 3000 and is currently --z-index-default: 1

  13. Date observed: 5/5/2022

    Twitch chat is causing memory leaks. I only observed this because I was watching a streamer with 100k+ viewers and my computer crashed with 32GB of memory with all other applications closed.

    In Dev Tools on a Chromium browser:

    1. Select "Performance monitor" in Dev tools.
    2. Observe the JS heap size and the DOM nodes, they progressively increase as chats are sent.

    Another way to observe:

    1. select "Memory" tab in Dev tools.
    2. Use "Allocation instrumentation on timeline".
    3. Record and observe the memory allocation.

    Note: tested on Edge and Google Chrome with all the extensions turned off.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  19. FIX the Autohost system!
    It hasn't been working for MONTHS now. I want to support my friends and my team, and sometimes I'm not able to send a /host to my own channel.
    My autohost list was carefully made, and it's incredibly frustrating it's not working! Please Twitch, this is important for people that want to support their friends, teams and the communities that they have contact with!

  20. In the 'Chat Identity' menu, under the channel identity category where it shows your sub badge, the correct badge is displayed (12 months in my case) but the text says 'Subscribed for 6 months' (which is my sub streak for that channel). This doesn't sound right, as the text is probably meant to descibe how the user earned that bade (by being subbed for 12 months) and not what their current streak is
