  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. Give channel moderators the power to shout out someone in chat by clicking their username and selecting a "shout out" option (another way of shouting them out vs. using /shoutout @username).

  3. I regularly notice that some people miss important moments of the stream and then ask what happened or make clips to watch the replay. Usually these people are sitting in a neighboring window or tab, or busy doing something else but interested in the stream.

    It would be great to be able to call everyone to the screen at important moments of the stream that you want to see live.

    To do this, I suggest giving moderators the ability to ping everyone in the chat with @all or the /heyall command, which would be the equivalent of you writing the…

  4. In the filter window it would be great to be able to hide other user's command chat to reduce the constant stream of spam.

  5. I feel the Shoutout command could be improved by allowing channels to configure an auto shoutout to happen when a channel raids. Limits should be placed on when the Raid auto shoutout occurs such as
    Raiding VIPs
    Raiding channels followed by the creator
    Raiding Subscribers
    Raiding Followers
    ect.

  6. 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…

  7. 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!

  8. Should look at providing slash commands linked to channel point redemptions so they can be redeemed quicker from within chat.

  9. It would be greatly appreciated if we would have the feature to have a /whisper command in chat. And the user would see the whisper message in-chat.
    The command would be in this type of format: /whisper [username] [context]

    And if this feature is accepted. I would love to see a command for mods too. Only mods and the streamer itself would see the whisper in the chat and no one else.
    The format would be: /whispermods [context].

  10. Please stop imposing a time limit on how often Mods can post /shoutouts. The musician I mod for often gets 2 or more fellow streamers joining his stream at the same time and he expects his mods to give shoutouts to all of them, ASAP. For the past few months, after I post the first shoutout, when I try to post the shoutout for the second streamer, it will not go through and I get a time-out notice telling me I have to wait another 30 seconds, or 9 seconds, etc., whatever, before I am permitted to give another shoutout.…

  11. The Shoutout feature is a great idea and could have massive potential when it comes to shining a light onto certain people you wanna support. The problem is that the way it's currently implemented is very limited because the only way to use it is via a command that you have to type. This can be rather cumbersome to do as not only do you have to make sure you type the command correctly, you need to be able to type the exact name of the person

    Instead, I think there should also be an option to click on a…

  12. Just like the /pin command it would be great if streamers and mods could use /unpin in chat to unpin the current active pinned message.

    I often check my stream and chat on mobile when im AFK and quite often I notice I have a pinned message I want to unpin. Unpinning just by sending /unpin to chat would be awesome.

    I personally also prefer keyboard > mouse so I would definitely use /unpin even at desktop. :3

  14. While it's possible to display rules to new chatters, these sometimes change. And I'd like to be able to have a !rules command to display the present rules to chat.

  15. Would be nice if you could Improve the Visibility of Pinned Messages by Example giving them a coloured Border. Secondly alot of Times the Pinned Message doesnt get Updated or shown at all to certain People who join the Stream or were already there. Only after Refreshing the Stream the correct one is beeing shown. Would be nice if you could Improve that System regarding this Problems.

  16. 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

  19. im thinking of an feature for the music streamers, they often ask the chat, what kind of musik do you like to listen to, how about a command with cooldown to upvote downvote the actual song. since one song can go up to 2-4 mins the cooldown could be like 5 mins

  20. 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
