  1. Me gustaría que el recuento de viewers fuera el correcto. Muchas veces tengo a más personas en el chat, que sé que no son bots y me marca muchas menos. Eso estropea las estadísticas.

  2. I thought it would be a great idea if we as steamers could give people more roles than VIPs, mods or editors. Such as discord, different and certain roles with badges and a bigger interaction with chat and the people in it.

    Everyone could be able to get a role and be able to interact with roles.

    There would be more customisation in your own hands as a streamer and a new way to get people to chat and come visit in your chats/streams

  3. Current Chat is hard to read in streams with lots of viewers. Chats scroll up as new chats appear making it hard to for the eye to track at high speeds.

    I'd suggest creating a mode where chat can use a "progressive scan" approach much like old CRT televisions which illuminated pixels sequentially overwriting old pixels. With this approach, new chats would overwrite the oldest chat. The next chat would overwrite the next oldest chat. Chats would stay in a fixed position on the screen until they were overwritten by a new chat. This would make it easier to read…

  5. This idea is to prevent spoilers and backsitting.

    So they way mods have prevented these things until now was deleting spoilers/backsitting/etc very quickly hoping the streamer won't see it. But sometimes it happens anyways.

    So my idea is this: when you activate "Spoiler mode" you can only see the messages that have been aproved as "safe" by the mods. That way, everyone is safe 100% garanteed.

  6. As the topic says,

    a feature to AUTOMATICALLY restrict and monitor all accounts following your channel the same day as the accounts where made.

    This would save me and most likely others a lot of work going through your follower list everyday to keep obsessed psychopaths out.

    I am of course talking about the new marking feature that recently came to be where you can choose to monitor a suspicious chatter and even restrict his messages from being seen by the rest.

  7. Сделать возможным обычным пользователям отправлять только смайлики и подписчикам писать одновременно(объединить режимы "чат для смайликов" и "чат для подписчиков" или сделать независимыми друг от друга).
    Часто во время просмотра фильма или мультипликации во избежание спойлеров ставят один из вышеупомянутых режимов. В первом случае стримеру не хватает интерактива от трансляции, во втором интерактива не хватает обычным зрителям.

  8. Twitch staff here. A streamer mentioned they'd love if there would be an option to have whispers from their Mods to appear in their chat and be highlighted. The streamer mentioned they use pop-out chat and primarily uses the chat of engagement, and this would help them keep the flow of their stream without having to pause and click through the Whispers window to see specific messages.

    In addition, maybe add an option for everyone to toggle having whispers mirrored to a chat if they are watching a stream with the @USERNAME and a notice it is a whisper. Just…

  9. Chat disappears when chrome window is made smaller
    no expand
    You have to change it quickly so the chat below is created
    Otherwise the chat will be lost.

    크롬창을 작게바꿀때 채팅이 없어집니다
    펼치기도 없어지고요
    크기를 줄일때 빠르게 줄여야 채팅이 아래에 생깁니다
    안그러면 채팅이 없어지고 화면만 줄어듭니다

  10. Problem:
    - Right now it appears as if a self-hosted and thus unverified bot with a separate standard Twitch account is shadow-banned from whispering people through WebSockets (wss://irc-ws.chat.twitch.tv:443). It looks like it works, but the messages never arrive, I've tried with my own bot account and friend's bots.

    Solution:
    - To me, it seems reasonable that a bot that has been set to be moderator in a channel should also be able to whisper users that are currently connected to that same channel.

    Additions:
    - It could even be further restricted to when the channel is live if need be.…

  11. Upgrade the /shoutout command to have a browser source overlay that plays clips. Broadcaster can limit how long the clips will be played and the creator of the clips can toggle a "Clip Available for Shout Out" option for each clip that way us smaller streamers who enjoy video shout outs can still do them and the other creators can choose what clips appear.

    If a creator has no clips designated for Shout Outs, then their profile picture will appear with their name.

  12. Make "Chat Filters" setting persistent. Currently, I have to turn my Chat Filters OFF every time I log on to the website, even though I have cookies enabled for the site, and this is very annoying. This setting should be stored in the account and persistently applied. Even better, it could be applied to each individual channel.

  13. I would love to have the chance to give some reaction to an another user message. This could help even the streamer to select wich messages are worth to read and answer (if it is a question).

  14. The idea is to better counter the issue with unwanted links and at the same time provide a way for regulars to post links without getting purged by botmods such as Moobot, AnKbot, Nightbot, etc.

    How it works: The streamer and their mods gets a new option ("Links in Chat" to allow them to limit how links acts in chat from the moment this option is changed onward. Possible values:
    • "Allow" - Just allows link, unregulated except for the case there's a URL in the blacklist (example: TinyURL).
    • "Moderated" - Puts messages containing links "on hold", similar to…

  15. Scenario
    User A replies to User B, User B continues the conversation by replying to User A, Twitch Chat shows "User B replied to User B"

    Background
    Many different social media platforms have allowed reply threads for years, arguably most notable being Twitter. Users have clear expectation of reply behaviour. Twitch replies do not adhere to this expectation.

    Problem
    Users look as if they're speaking to themselves. It creates confusion for both users participating in the reply thread and others outside of the reply thread.

    Solution
    Update the reply feature to accurately reflect who is replying to whom.

    Additional
    I…

  16. Add RTF chat support for Broadcasters, Bots, and Mods while stripping <script>, <img>, etc. tags. (that way we can actually format command messages such as our rules, or raid messages. Honestly you could just take off the word-break style for those users.)

    Even a quiet roll of "Hey, you wanna write your own html? Go for it."

  17. I've often found it to be a bit of an annoyance when I have a custom badge (the one that overrides your global badge) set in a channel and then I take some action such as cheering bits of gifting a sub and my custom badge automatically gets updated and then I have to go change it back to what I want it to stay as. I understand the feature in and of itself is nice to have and in many cases I may want the automatic updated badge, but I would like to have an option (ideally on a…

  19. When selecting emotes to attach to a whisper, only a couple lines of emotes are visible, which is a pain when you have 100s of emotes to choose from. A resizable window or a large pop-out would accommodate this much better.

    The ordering system also lacks consistency. The main reason the small window is an issue for me is it's difficult to find my own channel emotes, which I wish would just always stay at the top.

  20. 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
