  1. This has been a great new feature that Twitch has added recently that has helped so many people gain new followers.

    One thing that I think its lacking is a queue system. I understand that the shoutout needs to have a cooldown but often times multiple raids come in at the same time and being unable to shout out both people means that one gets the shoutout and we forget to do the other one when the cooldown is up. Even adding a queue system of up to 5 streamers would be extremely helpful in making sure everyone gets the…

  2. Hi, all! We're thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of a new native chat command that allows you to give another streamer a shoutout in chat, so that you can introduce them to your viewers and help them grow! Here's an overview of the key features all broadcasters and mods can expect to see in September:

    Use "/shoutout [channel]" to support another streamer by displaying a follow button for their channel in chat, so your viewers can support by following them without leaving your live stream.
    If the channel getting the shoutout has a stream schedule set up, it will also…

  3. The new /shoutout command is pretty cool, but isn't able to replace the existing shoutouts that we all do in our bots. Since the bots are usually mods in their respective channels, those users should be able to use the /shoutout command (just as they can use commands like /announce); however, I have not been able to make this work. Please consider allowing chat (IRC) connections to use the /shoutout command, so we can augment our bot shoutouts with the new feature!

  4. Add a special feature to mods/streamer on chat where you can shoutout a channel, and it will show on top of the chat, like the HypeTrain, giving some emphasis to this channel to be followed when this /shoutout command is used. This will give more opportunity to grow and be noticed to small streamers, when they are shoutout by medium and large streamers. An animated UI with Channel Name, channel profile picture, last game played and a follow buttom will help a lot.

  5. Hey, would like it if the message that the shoutout command posts in the chat was costumizable and also had the option of showing the last game (or maybe even the last 2 or 3 games) that the person being shouted out played. I feel like most people would use the /shoutout and !so together unless these two things gets added

  6. Brief description

    I just tried to /shoutout a streamer with a Korean display name. I used "/shoutout juliday97" in the chat window, and viewers got an unusable link, both for going to the channel and for following.

    How to reproduce

    Use /shoutout with any streamer whose display name is just a different capitalization of their user name.

    Expected behavior

    I would have expected working links. :P

  7. A lot of times if someone raids in and a lot of chat activity goes on during stream, it is hard for the broadcaster to read or see the person who raided in their chat messages. My idea is to spotlight the raider if they are being shouted out with the "/shoutout" command for a minute or so.

  8. Since the shoutout box also shows a snippet of schedule information.

    The shoutout box at the top of chat should be displayed to all users regardless of if they follow the streamer or not.

  9. Please give Moderators and Editors the ability to use the new /shoutout command. Streamers are usually too busy trying to make their stream entertaining to stop and type out a command. The Moderators are usually the ones who give a shoutout to other streamers.

  10. Why is the @name (if you start typing a name then hit tab it does not autocomplete the name anymore or show a list of names)? Having to typeout the name for @name or !so @name seems to revert back to the old days. Did you delete the coding on accident? As a mod for a few channels that is quite annoying. Can we fix this please?

  11. Shoutout (/Shoutout) should be more visible to the viewers! Give it a special color/design that sticks out.

  12. Similar to RAIDs there should be a section in the Creator Dashboard that allows granular access to control Shoutouts & what gets shown where (ie Chat message vs Activity Feed message vs both).

    Currently with the new rollout you are able to;
    1) Shoutout the same person every minute or so which causes their Activity Feed to be SPAMmed with notifications (usually of different view count numbers)
    2) It is possible to Shoutout the same channel at the same time by multiple accounts which can lead to Bot controlled Hate Shoutouts
    3) Resulting Mass Follows to an unsuspecting channel could…
