  1. In stream option it would be a list element with options to add new items to this list.

    List name : Slow Chat Based On Viewers [+]

    Would allow the option for larger streams to increase the duration of slow chat based on a threshold of viewers. The more people that join the longer the slow chat duration. This would assist with automatic chat control, and allow streamers the peace of mind that when they stream later and viewer count goes down that the restrictions placed on chat would automatically get lifted. Option to add threshold would also be ideal.…

  2. develop a feature that allows broadcaster select specific person from the viewer list and do a video call with the person. it will be useful for the broadcaster to do direct interaction if anything happen such as a huge amount of donation, giveaway or anything else.

    for example, the broadcaster select 1 of the viewer, left click the name and it will give an option to contact the viewer directly (webcam+voice chat) something like that.

  3. When the streamer chooses the "Restrict Chat Language" option, you see a popup on the chat and can't send messages until you click on it. Once you do and the popup disappears, there is no way to check if the chat is in language restricted mode. I visit many channels and it would be very hard to remember which ones had the language restriction and which didn't, and I don't want to seem annoying to the streamer or other chatters. Also I've noticed that you get no notice about it as moderator of the channel either, so if streamer forgets…

  5. if you are in chat, and you want to contact a mod regarding certain question/need help regaarding something, then by using @mods will message all the present mods the same way as you message them personally by their twitch names. This will ensure easier way for mods to notice if chat require their assistance, or for a viewer to reach a mod.

  6. When someone in chat mentions another person in chat it gets hard to find out what he was replying to. My suggestion is to make the mention color the same as the person who was mentioned.

    Here is a screenshot of what I mean: http://imgur.com/a/H4alc

  7. So, with the brief time I have spent watching some YouTube streamers there is something I noticed that I really enjoyed. Which was the ability to have a Sponsor and Non-Sponsor chat (Sponsor being YouTube's equivalent to Twitch Subscribers).

    The reason I think Twitch would benefit from this would be mainly for larger streamers to be able to define some subscriber questions from the mess of thousands of non-subscribers either spamming or just saying general nonsense without having to take away non-subscribers from chatting/spamming/having fun.

    Just a small idea that I think wouldn't hurt Twitch at all to allow streamers…

  8. Say you have a Japanese display name and like to watch English streams and are English, the English streamers cant read your name because most of them use extensions which cause it to only show the Japanese lettering and not the English in parenthesis. So if youre in an English chat your display name should automatically be only English if you choose and If youre in other language you can have a non-English display name

  9. Hello everyone SlaveZero here,

    Chat is mostly non subs and most streamers go to sub only chat, and I think that all streamers have loyal followers that were with them for years and are not subs. It would be nice if there was an option where streamer could promote their loyal followers to be able to participate in sub only chat.

    Have a good day everyone!

  10. This idea has been in my head ever since the release of the Golden Kappa.

    Much like how we currently has sub-only mode and emote-only mode, we should have a Kappa-only mode, where any variations of the kappa emotes can be posted!

    Whether it's a sub emote, bttv emote, or a global emote, it can only allow emotes to be passed that have the kappa in it, and includes variation such as KaRappa or Keepo!

    In a chat i moderate we have a daily Kappa check at the peak of the stream, to see if anyone has the golden kappa,…

  11. Users sending a spoiler could use this command to show it only to the people that really wants to see it. When using /spoiler followed by a message the chat will instead display a "Spoiler" button which when clicked will show the message.

    Examples:
    /spoiler The cake is a lie!
    /spoiler The girl dies at the end of the game!
    /spoiler The princess is not on this castle!
    /spoiler Kappa

  12. It would be a chat-wide drawing room where people can doodle anything. You could have it be a popup, or have it directly under the stream and to the left of chat.

  13. I believe with the relevance of mobile platforms overtaking the web, emojis should also be allowed on Twitch with emote only mode allowed.

    Emojis are emotes, too!

  14. I propose a mass user chat filter/ignore feature where you are able to set certain mass filters to finally rid the spam/trolls/racists etc from chat.

    Examples:

    1) A user could set their chat to ignore all users under a certain age (say 18 for example) -- this will reduce the immature chat

    2) Ignore chat from all subs from JohnDoe's stream (some streams are spam heavy which bleeds into other channels)

    3) Ignore all users who use certain words (allows user to add custom or pre-selected filters for users who use abusive/hateful language)

    This feature will hopefully allow a positive…

  15. This is to prevent the major issue with trolls. a Regular only chat would mean that a person has been WATCHING the stream for a set amount of time before becoming a regular, and is following as well. Not something a bot/troll can follow button and just randomly pop in to troll the next day. We should be able to set the time limit as well like let's say it takes about 4 hours to become regular, I've only found 1 troll that waited an hour after ban to continue trolling, all the trolls I've seen, only troll until the…

  16. It would be nice to be able to type snippets of programming source code into chat.

    For example, `@next += 1` would become <code>@next += 1</code> in the outputted HTML of the chat, which works great at first glance.

    This would be a great feature for the #programming subchannel on Creative. Many programming sigils and tokens are meaningful in chat, so these would be ignored if inside a code tag.

  17. Right now people can be distinguished by badges and name color, but allowing users to have different fonts can really help differentiate and provide more of a "personality" for chatters.

    Streamers should be able to ban certain fonts in their streams that they find too hard to read or otherwise don't like.

  18. Chat replay is certainly better now than at launch, but there has to be a way to ignore users. Clicking a name and pressing the ignore button does nothing (it doesn't even add them to your global ignore list).
    Also needs an option menu and popout capability, but those can wait.

  19. You often see people typing ^ to show their support for a message. Why not make this a real feature. You could upvote a message and make it stay visible for longer or something like that. Quality messages wouldn't get lost so quickly (I am thinking of very rapid chats here especially). I guess it should be a special mode, since for slower chat it would not make sense to alter the order of the messages, since some messages are answers to questions etc.

  20. Add ability to turn on a notification sound for new messages in channels you are in, but you are tabbed out. It could be set to: notify about every message, notify about friend message, do not notify about new messages. The sound could be a simple BLIP sound.
