How it works:

  • Be clear with your suggestion, provide examples and solutions to the problem you are posing. Suggestions without actionable feedback may be closed without comment
  • Upvote existing ideas, as opposed to creating multiple similar requests
  • Be sure to share your suggestion with others to gain more support!
  • Note: Suggestions are not guarantees that we will take action on an idea. We will try our best to communicate why an idea may not work, but may not always be able to share that information.
  • Titles that are unclear or unnecessarily vulgar may be reworded to better reflect the request for ease of discovery

  1. When watching a stream, and people keep giving out gift subs, the chat window keeps opening and shrinking the actual video I am watching. Either allow us to turn off gift subscription notifications or let us turn off chat entirely. Otherwise, I will stop subscribing and just watch on YouTube later.

  2. there should be an option to use the last polls question and answers as template for the next one.

    Question and answers would be prefilled from the last one but you still can change them to your needs and the start the new poll

  3. It would be nice to be able to view your own chat log, the same way moderators/streamers can view yours. And if you've been timed out, you can see which chat message got you a timeout.

  4. Please let us turn off chat notification for contributions to channel points community challenges. If there are a lot of people contributing to the challenge the chat is spammed with the notifications.

  5. Twitch command aliasing would be a neat addition. Similar to aliasing in .bashrc on Linux.

    The ability to set your own aliases for ingrained twitch commands. That way mods dont have to try to remember them, since apparently that is difficult for some.

    In this example, it is aliasing the /marker command with /m. In the end both options would work (or as many options as people make).

    On Linux it looks like this.
    alias '/m'='/marker'

    On twitch, could be like this.
    /alias [new command] [twitch command]
    /alias /m /marker

    Scenario:
    If a user did
    /alias /m /marker
    /alias /mark…

  7. Currently, Moderators, specifically bots, messages get delayed by the chat delay setting for viewers. Allow moderators to be exempted from this delay or allow selected users, such as bots, exempt from this delay chatting.

  11. A global chat badge for verified military service. It could be a simple badge one for everyone or expanded for nations or nation/branch. ie: MilVet/Army/Marine/UK:Marine/US:Army/Aus:Navy, ect... lots of ways to potentially expand.

    First responder (dr/nurse/emt/fire/LE) also possible.

  12. Twitch chat needs more options to ignore other users that aren't outright blocking. Sometimes a person may want to temporarily ignore another person in chat without having to remember to unblock them later. Giving the option to mute someone for 24 hours allows this.

  13. A separate chat box that catches @ messages to that specific user, i'm in a chat that move fast at time and i miss a few messages that people have @ me in so i thing a separate box at the bottom to show your own @s from other people would be great.

  14. It would be very helpful if chat mods were able to exceed the 500 character chat limit. This is especially so when trying to input something into Nightbot but having the message to be too long and not being able to say what you want to say.

  15. An idea that would help streamers control chat from back seating when playing puzzle games.

    Allowing mods to put singular users into emote only mode if repeat offenders.

    Allowing extra blacklisted words and phrases to be activated when only in this mode. (blacklisting things like 'the other way' 'wrong shape' ect ect.. for aslong as the mode is active.

    Adding a banner somewhere in chat or overlay somewhere letting users know anti-backseat mode is active and not to do it.

  16. By clicking on the chat user’s nickname, a menu appears where you can contact the user, and his nickname will be copied to your chat message. A more convenient way to access than using the @ symbol and spelling a nickname.

  17. On the left side of viewers names in chat, have a small profile picture so that people are more distinguishable. Would be better for smaller streamers and looks aesthetically pleasing. You could also make this an option that streamers can set in their chat settings.

  18. With the recent uptick in ****** misconduct allegations within the Twitch community I think that there is something that can be done to provide streamers, their moderators, and viewers a safer and more welcoming entertainment platform. As a veteran of the United States Air Force I have been required to take many hours of ****** assault prevention and response training along with suicide awareness training. This training is typically done through an initiative called Culture of Respect or Green Dot Training which can be found here https://cultureofrespect.org/program/green-dot-etc/ . This is a call for Twitch to partner with Culture of Respect…

  19. Sometimes its nice to only chat with the chat, not with the Streamer. Because sometimes messages lead to spoilers, which could destroy the play experience of games. It would be a grade idea to make sign messages, which the chat only could reade like: #x# "Testmessage with chat communication." So the chat could communicate with eachother and keep the streamer first playtrough game expirance.
