Banned/blocked users shouldnt be able to view your stream at all.
Due to an extremely large amount of streamers getting trolled to the point they no longer want to stream, I feel that if someone gets banned/blocked from a streamers chat then they should no longer be able to even view the stream. When the troll types the streamers name into the search bar then that streamers name should not appear, just like how it works on any other site. Allowing the troll to view the stream can still cause stream sniping and other things that gives the troll the incentive to troll and harass even further. Im speaking from experience here. Even though ive had to ban hundreds of accounts I still get the troll making alt accounts and having their username being a family members name or my address. This needs to be sorted asap.
Though it requires some changes, from a technical point of view it shouldn't be too hard to archieve:
1. make streams non available publicly
The technic behind that already exists for sub-only streams.
2. give non-blacklisted people access to the stream
Also quite similar to the sub-only stream feature, the technic already exists. You just have to take the banned chatters list into account.
Basically it's 1 more flag and some more checks for that flag plus the blacklist.
@Eewec People are able to make unban requests already.
This also means that anyone banned due to a moderation miss-click (happened earlier to someone due to the moderator not clicking the correct name) would be unable to appeal if no one noticed the wrong person got banned.
This would mean also people that are not logged it shouldn’t be able to view it. Also, some moderators place preventive bans on every channel you may be on if you break the rules on Discord for example. It’d be rather harsh imho to block all viewing.
Well you cant since you can watch streams without an account.
That would have to be optional, since the only way it could work would be to make it so that you need to be logged in to watch streams, and that means that many streams would lose a lot of viewers if it was forced.
The tech is already there to restrict people from watching sub only streams, why not work with it to restrict people who are banned in the same manner?
This idea is unenforceable without a massive overall of how Twitch functions imo. What's preventing them from just viewing and stream sniping by logging out of Twitch? There's no way to prevent someone from stalking someone on Twitch unless they require everyone to have an account and be logged in before viewing streams. Even then, the bar Twitch / Amazon has set for account creation is so ridiculously low that some trolls already have literally hundreds of throwaway accounts; plus VPNs are a thing (which should also be banned).
This should have been a thing since day 1
Que el comando /ban los expulse del chat y el directo, porque los streamsnipers por más que le den ban pueden seguir viendo el directo y si lo bloqueamos tiene que ser echado del stream para que no siga snipeando
