  1. I'm looking for a better way to identify who is watching my stream currently, I feel like this could greatly help smaller streamers by giving them a way to address people who are lurking and start conversation

  2. It would be really beneficial to pin a message to chat when offline to inform viewers of a delay or cancelled stream. It seems mad there is no way to communicate that on the platform we are actually late on! Not everyone follows every streamer on their social media/Discord so this would be a great way to communicate changes.

  3. FIX the Autohost system!
    It hasn't been working for MONTHS now. I want to support my friends and my team, and sometimes I'm not able to send a /host to my own channel.
    My autohost list was carefully made, and it's incredibly frustrating it's not working! Please Twitch, this is important for people that want to support their friends, teams and the communities that they have contact with!

  4. I know Twitch says the feature seemed to cause a decrease in viewership during their testing, but there are so many other factors that can affect that and many streamers who got to try out the chant feature really enjoyed it. I think it’d be better to make it an optional feature rather than remove it entirely, and let people decide on their own if it works for their channel.

  5. ID display in chat window is unnecessary. Just showing your nickname is enough. (For non-admins) (add setting)
    채팅창에 아이디 표시는 불필요합니다. 닉네임만 보여줘도 충분합니다. (관리자가 아닌 사람들에게는요) (설정 추가)

  6. I want to keep the core idea as simple as possible and go deeper into motives later.

    • The core idea consists of two parts:

    part 1

    When a chat user clicks on any other user of the chat they usually see info about that user on that channel: following time, subscriber lvl and months, etc. and 3 buttons (add friend, whisper, gift a sub).
    A new button called "Report to mods" should be added here.

    part 2

    From the mods perspective, this feature only means a number when they open the chat users list.
    On the top of the list…

  7. I really want to change my username color to another custom one, but I can't really afford paying the full price of Twitch Turbo just for that one feature. It would be nice to have the option to pay for that alone for at least a bit less. Of course any other custom change would also need to be paid for.

  8. In the 'Chat Identity' menu, under the channel identity category where it shows your sub badge, the correct badge is displayed (12 months in my case) but the text says 'Subscribed for 6 months' (which is my sub streak for that channel). This doesn't sound right, as the text is probably meant to descibe how the user earned that bade (by being subbed for 12 months) and not what their current streak is

  9. Allowing all moderators to see when any moderator used /marker in chat would help to prevent confusion as to wether or not a marker was added upon broadcaster request.

  10. It would be nice if a MOD could deleat a messages from himself or another MOD.
    No one is perfect, maybe its a small spoiler or a word that is not fitting for a MOD.
    And sometime the Streamer cant go out of the Stream or would destroy a challange run.
    So it would be nice if a MOD could deleat a messages from himself or another MOD.

  11. (I deleted my old post because it was hard to understand)

    A Welcome message that shows up every time you enter a channel's chat. Not when you click to say something like it does now, but when you first see the chat.

    It would include Rules but be more welcoming and flexible.

    Examples:

    Headline: "Chat Rules"
    Body: (Usual chat rules as they are currently)

    Or:

    Headline: "AVAST! YE SCURVY KNAVE!"
    Body: "He, she, ye, or they who dare cross this rope bridge to join us aboard the ship shall be cursed if they refuse to follow THESE RULES..."

    Or:

    Headline:…

    Sadly no update, but I just wanted to say thank you so much for reuploading if you were concerned the first post was too confusing! Means the world when people clarify <3 



  12. I have been with this bug for months, when the Slow Mode is enable (doesn't matter what time is set) after a send a message is shows "you can chat in (absurd time like 4h 9m)", this only happens on PC, so i can't send any message, i have to use the cellphone to send something (because the bug doesn't happen there) or ask to the MOD to turn it off Slow Mode which isn't nice when there is 1300 people watching, REALLY annoying and doesn't make sense, would be a relief if someone fix that.

    Hey there! 


    Are there specific words you are running into that are constantly blocked? If you could let me know some example sentences that are getting caught my automod I can pass that to the team to review and make sure we are catching things as expected. 


    Thanks! 

  14. Using Chrome on two devices in the same room, with more than one Twitch tab open on each device (Settings, my own offline channel and its chat, a channel I'm watching, the Live Channels You Follow page), sometimes whispers begin to vanish with "Your whisper was not delivered." This goes away if I close some of the tabs. But having multiple tabs open is standard Twitch life.

    Also, sometimes I am whispering to a mod something critical and time-sensitive, and detailed, and then the dreaded not delivered message comes. The worst part? The message has vanished and I have to…

  15. Can we have an option to turn off the highlight on monitored users for moderation? It especially is useful for the streamer as the person being suspicious shouldn't draw the streamer's attention more than other viewers.

  16. We are experimenting with a new feature that allows new viewers in a channel to introduce themselves via a simple prompt. Messages sent through this feature will be highlighted to the rest of Chat with an invitation to welcome the user via chat reply or @mention. This feature is in a limited release, and we will monitor feedback before deciding whether to make it more widely available.

    Channels are enrolled in the experiment automatically and randomly, and creators can toggle the feature on and off in their Moderation settings under Chat Options: https://dashboard.twitch.tv/settings/moderation

    We'd love to hear your thoughts and…

  17. A lot of bots are used to create and use commands. Moreover twitch have a command system (with /, for example /mods /vips, etc) and use of commands spam chats.

    So the idea is to allow developers to access those slash commands, by adding an command via twitch API (as Discord did).
    It should prevent spam on chat.

  18. Have an option to choose between the founder badge or the channel subscription badge.
    In the chat I moderate several people are "complaining" about not being able to show their subscription badge. It is a kind of privilege to have the founding badge but then why impose it and not let the user choose?

  19. 스트리머가 채팅창을 화면에 송출할 때, 보고싶지 않은 불쾌한 채팅까지 봐야만 하는데,
    이를 애드온으로서 전환해주시길 바랍니다.

    애드온에 채팅창 화면 송출 기능을 도입하여 화면에서 채팅을 보고 싶은 유저는 On, 보고 싶지 않은 유저는 Off를 통해서 강제로 불쾌한 채팅까지 봐야하는 불상사를 막아줄 수 있을 것으로 사료됩니다.

  20. When a chatter is being "watched" by mods.. dim their chat for the streamer. Perhaps also highlight chat for other mods?
