  1. Allow the partner badge to be blocked/disabled by the streamer in their own chat so NO partner badges appear in their chat.

    This can help with anxiety that may be caused by seeing this and not knowing the person or also block any passive advertising the partner may be doing/aiming for.

    so simply put:
    The streamer should be able to remove the partner badge from their own chat altogether for all users chatting in that chat.

  3. So at the moment I run a few chat based games like (PCG, ravenfall) and then the chat gets filled up by the spam of the games and chat becomes unreadable to humans that aren't playing these games. Is there anyway that we are going to have a separate chat channel for the Bots?

  4. Allow me to disable the sub anniversary reminder permanently. The chat UI allows me to ignore it for a month, but I never want to see it.

  5. Watchalong streams often have people posting spoilers. Some moderators introduce emote mode, but this prevents discussion.

    A solution to this would be a feature to introduce a moderator-controlled delay to the chat. Therefore, people could continue writing comments live, but everyone elsewould get them a bit later (say 5, 10, 20, 30 seconds).

  7. Block all links automatically that are not trusted/owned by twitch and make the streamers manually add links they trust to a whitelist for whispers and their twitch chat

    Noticed for the past 2 years that there has been active group DDoSing old school runescape streamers with fake lookalike ip grabbing links, like clipstwitch .live, imgur .us, gyazo .nl and yȯutube .com and they dont even get punished for it

  8. I'd like to see a "Safe User Chat List" As it currently is I am being plagues by bot accounts spammers and griefers. I know I can add a few people to VIP and Mod, but those were folks that have occasionally subscribed. This means I no longer get the occasional sub from them. Due to the current griefer/bot garbage I've had to set my chat to subscriber only.

    If I had a Safe user Chat-list I could add people to, to allow them to chat then they coudl still donate, and even when not subbed still chat.

  9. Too many messages in chat make the stream spammy and makes it hard for streamers to see what is going on.

    It also makes it hard for viewers to hold conversations with each-other or even follow what is happening.

    If viewers could stay in smaller chat groups, they could hold actual conversations in those groups.

    And if those groups could upvote comments, the most-voted comments could be made visible for all users in every group, working like a spam filter in which only the good comments are made visible for everyone, reducing spam drastically.

  10. There is currently a section for weekly top gifters/cheers. There should also be a section for weekly top rewards winners. This would encourage users to interact with channel points more often and allow users that aren't financially able to get top gifts/cheers to still get to the top of the leaderboards.

  11. Since Twitch's chat is based off of IRC, in theory this should be somewhat simple.

    There would be a section in the Twitch dashboard under moderation where you could go and view the chat logs either for individual streams, or for certain dates, or use wildcards/keywords/filters/tags to find what you are looking for.

    This would help with moderating your chat, and make sure people were not abusing others while you're offline or away.

    I've heard that posting Twitch chat logs is against TOS or something, so you would have to outline restrictions and rules in the TOS and community guidelines…

  12. Twitch policy requires the chat to be moderated at all times, which is why trolls tend to hate-raid a Twitch channel's chat, then report it to get that channel banned and at the time of writing, it is 100% legitimate, a current threat and the only way around that is to put your chat in emote-only mode.

    The "Close Chat" feature I am suggesting ends that. Under this feature, channel editors and owners may use the /closechat command to shut down the chatroom, preventing all users from sending messages in the chat, and only the channel editors and owners may…

  13. 저는 방송을 시청할 때 시청자들과의 채팅은 하지 않고 같이 보는 친구와 귓속말을 합니다.

    그래서 친구와의 귓속말 채팅도 방송채팅처럼 우측에 띄워놓고 방송을 보고 싶습니다.

    또 귓속말이 와도 온줄 모르고 답장을 못할 때가 있습니다.

    소리나 화면번쩍거림 같은 방법으로 귓속말이 왔다는 알림이 있으면 좋겠습니다.

    귀사의 무궁한 발전을 기원합니다. 감사합니다.

  14. THIS IS A GOOD IDEA

    Since there can be people posting bad words on chat and they can use so many variations which can make it hard to filter out, the best way would be to secretly filter out those bad words

    Example: someone types the word “simp” if they see it does not post they would use a different way to spell it, but if they see their message is posted though it is secretly hidden meaning the user can see what they posted but nobody else would, they would not try to spell it in other ways

  15. Hello all, rather simple idea.

    Hovering over a hyperlink in chat would temporarily pause scrolling. In some high-volume chat clicking a small link in chat feels like a reaction time minigame.

    I understand you can scroll to pause chat but the ability to hover over, chat will be paused, and click conveniently would be really slick.

    Thanks!

  16. When tapping on the view counter, see number of unique chatters chatting now in chat (or number of users who send a message in the last minute) interesting for viewers and streamers, seeing it live. Since viewers does not correspond to number of people engaging with streamer or number of people streamer could engage with)

  18. I'd like a (payed) feature to erase my chat history, which is viewable by channels based on my username. It's fine my chat history stays known to Twitch itself, but I'd like to start with a clean slate because my account is quite old and I've said things in the past in certain channels that I regret.

  20. Already back in the golden days of IRC - late 90s, early 2000s, it was common sense for both IRC network operators, and custom bots run to moderate channels, to have built in protections against hateful and disrupting attacks and other common abuse of the service.

    These kind of protections would include mitigations against:

    • Mass creation of accounts

    • Trying to connect to the network too many times from one IP

    • Too many joins/messages/similar to a single channel

    • Mass spam from multiple automated or manually operated actors

    Twitch should look into the already widely adopted best practices and implement similar practices…
