  2. The sending of spam messages via whisper has become a serious problem on Twitch in Portuguese, in view of this, I suggest the creation of a filter that retains suspicious spam messages in some other box.

    Generally the messages follow the same writing pattern with spammers asking for a donation of money to their bank accounts under the guise of experiencing financial hardship, so I believe a simple AI should be able to retain most of the unwanted messages.

    An option to block specific terms in the spam filter would also be welcome.

  3. my brilliant idea is to show chatters total unique viewers and total followers upon clicking their name in chat. Who could have decided this should go away ? There is only net positive to it. It's a sense of achievement for those that have ever tried and plan on trying to grow on the platform, and a permanent set of stats that makes ea person unique. Its discoverability, its reward, its unique, noone wanted the feature gone.

  4. Often channels are hit by viewers who are currently being shown video Ads such as Prerolls, or during a commercial break sending complaints to the chat about ads they are currently watching - which disrupts the flow of conversation in the chat, and the experience for viewers who are not currently watching ads.

    The suggestion is to take away the option for users to type messages into chat while preroll advertisements are still being shown.

    And give channels an optional setting to limit the ability to Chat to Ad-Free users (Turbo Users and Subscribers) And VIPs/Moderators which would be applied…

  6. 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…

  7. Stamp list and chat banner overlap when watching the stream on Chrome when it is in theater mode.
    This happens when you resize your browser.
    I want to put the stamp list on the front.

  8. There are channels that I want to display the founder badge and channels that I do not want to display.
    I would like to be able to set each channel individually.

    Audiences had similar opinions.

  9. It is no surprise that if you watched any stream, most streamers have "Regulars" that they game with. I think there should be a badge a streamer can give to those that they play with constantly on stream.

  11. Suggested feature: Twitch chat presets only chat

    Twitch has subscribers only chat and emotes only chat. What we need is chat presets only chat. In that mode, viewers can only communicate by using available chat presets. Twitch should have a default chat presets that streamers can use.

    Recommended chat presets include but not limited to:

  12. I don't check twitch often for messages. I would love to have the ability to block getting whispers completely. not just stop it for strangers (people i don't follow or sub to) but from everyone.

    I've had people i follow use it as a way to be like "join my discord" which personally freaks me out, then i've had people get mad that i didn't see their whisper while i'm streaming.

    i wish i could just block it fully so I didn't have to deal with it anymore.

  13. 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.

  14. The Viewercard for each user, specifically those with permissions in each channel to use newly added commands, such as /announce and /shoutout, seems to be missing the output for those commands.

    While i understand shoutouts actions are visible from the Modview/Dashboard, it would still be nice to be able to scroll through a moderator's chat history to view who they've previously shouted out.

    It would also be nice, and downright common sense, to be able to view the content from a moderator's previous /announce use.

  16. My chat filters delete a couple pretty specific terms/phrases. But even people whom I've seen before in my chat and enjoy the company of still fall prey to my filters from time to time. And it's quite disheartening when all of their contributions to the chat are completely purged because of one new message.

    With instances like this, for old and new users, it would benefit not just myself, but a good chunk of other streamers from what I've seen, to have things so that ONLY those individual messages with the actual filtered content gets deleted, as opposed to a…

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. You should also be able to see when in the VOD the chat was sent, and what the chat says. You shouldn't have to skip through entire VODs to see what the chat says. There should be a list that contains every single chat message you've ever received, and it should be accessible in the analytics.

  20. So, I, as a mod have the option to pin every message in the chat.
    The pin button is right next to the reply button, and I've found myself accidentally misclicking the pin button instead of the reply button.
    In my opinion, it should be harder to pin messages and you shouldn't be able to accidentally pin a message, if you wanted to reply to it.
