  • 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. 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

  2. We’re testing more ways to make it easier for creators to recognize new and returning viewers in chat with additional chat highlights for Mentions, Mods, and Subs. You can toggle individual highlights on or off to focus on a specific type of viewer you want to recognize, like highlighting important messages from your mods or showing love to your subs.

    These highlights will not be visible to viewers in chat.

    Note: This feature is a limited experiment and we will monitor feedback before deciding to make these highlights more widely available. You may see additional highlight options as we experiment…

    Looking for Feedback  ·  Danky responded

    Hey everyone! Wanted to give you all an exciting update: The Raider Chat Highlight is now live to all streamers. You can adjust in your Chat Highlight settings how long raiders will be highlighted for in chat (5 mins, 15 mins, 30 mins, 1 hour, and 4 hours). Learn more here!

    What other Chat Highlights would you like to see added? Let us know what you think of this update in the comments below!

  3. You shouldn't have to deal with anyone ever again if you have them blocked. I recently had to block a friend because he was toxic but we are apart of the same community and so even with me blocking them, i still can see them being @'d and their name in chatlist also if you get blocked by someone why can you still see what their saying. Similar to Twitter if you are blocked by someone you shouldn't be able to see any interactions.

  4. If a user has a localized display name it will not be possible to use their name to query something from the api since it does not accept non English characters.

    The /mods command already returns login names so the /vips command should do that too.

    The command also returns usernames sorted alphabetically but when using the twitch web chat the command sorts usernames by the order they were added as a mod/vip so the irc command should match that behavior.

  5. The banned chatters list is nowhere near a complete list of people I've banned, and it's not even in order of a person having been banned. There is no order to it. Please allow us to see the entire list of banned names.

  6. I can't close the "your watch streak" notification on the rewards & challenges button. It is covering up a lot of the list and serves no purpose to me after seeing it once.

  7. 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.

  8. Some Channels don't allow links to be posted in the chat, including twitch.tv links.

    I believe this is mostly to prevent spam and unwanted advertisement.

    An exception for twitch.tv links wouldn't hurt so we can post twitch-related content (maybe with a Option for Streamer's own Channel-related content only).

    ..This way I can share a Clipped stream highlight other than Reddit.

  9. SCENARIO - A Broadcaster is Raiding another Broadcaster and asks Chat to Copy & Paste a Raid Message

    BACKGROUND - A Broadcaster needs to program their Raid Message(s) into a bot, and then the Broadcaster/Mod must manually trigger the command(s) in chat pre-raid. Users must find the correct Raid Message based on subscriber status, in a moving chat, and then manually Copy & Paste once the Raid is complete. If the User doesn’t have Pause When Scrolling enabled - this is a frustrating task. Additionally, New Users on Twitch do not know about Pause While Scrolling, making this process the…

    könnt Ihr eine Funktin zur automatischen Übersetzung von Chatnachrichten, in die Sprache des Benutzers einführen?

  12. When pressing shift + enter on a message, it should actually skip a line when sending the message (like in discord). It would help so much to make things look more organized when typing a message

  15. When a user tries to give a gift sub to a community member, and they get an error, it very vague. Especially in the case where the recipient is already subbed.

    Please update the returned error text to be more clear.

    "PotatoLover99 is already a sub to FancyStreamer22 - very nice thought though!"

    Why? When gifting in chat, its obvious when someone is already subbed. But if you are trying to gift someone who perhaps made a great clip, or had requested a sub on a different platform (eg. Discord) - a vague error results in wasted time (eg trying…

  16. Here's what I mean (In the sense of the main web page):

    1. Once you sign in to your Twitch account

    2. Your given the option to remove said banner from the top section of the main web page.

    3. Depending on the game "Under the section of Categories" you either like or love it should reflect throughout the main page. (I. e. if you a Mario / Zelda / Street Fighter / Mortal Kombat / Halo Fan; those are the only games that should appear on the page; if there's more games you like or love it'll show as well.

    4. Eliminate the…

  17. What I would like to see please under the title I wrote which is "Under the section known as Categories".

    I would like to see only the games I'm interested in when I'm signed in to my account. I feel that everyone who is already signed in should be able to go under this section and be able to only see the games their interest in, and also pick and choose which games they like (either do to playing it when young, and current).

  18. Add an endpoint to fetch info about the new Twitch stories that have been added.

    Would be pretty useful for example to post a notification (or post the whole pic or video) in Discord so people on desktop have quick access to the stories since they are mainly about information of if a stream is gonna happen or when.

  19. There should be a way to switch the view of the channel point rewards. On channels with a lot of rewards it takes a lot of time to find the reward you are looking for.
    An alternative list view would be great so you have a small reward icon on the left and the name of the reward next to it. The chat members should be able to switch between the current "button" look and the list view.

    Maybe make the window resizable so you don't have to fumble with the tiny little reward window.

  20. Can you remove the ability to make ascis drawings in chats with space bars? Literally, they are only used to make **** drawings to send to streamers, a few months ago in the Icelands they sent one to Grefg, do as with prohibited words, if you put X number of dashes or dots the message cannot be sent at all
