Verified status for everyone and /verifiedonly chat mode
I would appreciate a very helpful feature for a lot of streams.
1) Make verifications and a verified status available for every user
2) Mark verified users with a badge on the profile page
3) Mark verified users with a badge in the chat
4) Implement a /verifiedonly chat mode
5) Link multiple accounts to the same verification
With the above mentioned features Twitch would become a safer and nicer place for everyone.
With the option for users to verify their accounts with their ID card, driver's license, or Amazon account and a chat mode for verified users only, a lot of spam, scam, harmful behavior, and ban evasions could be prevented. A chat ban of a verified account results in a ban for all the accounts linked to the same verification. Also a platform ban of a verified account results in a ban for all the accounts linked to the same verification. This procedure would make ban evasion more harder.
This would result in a higher administration effort.
Best idea ever
nice idea in my opinion!
less privacy for users
in case your account gets hacked this could get abused
maybe this can be done by some sort of "trust level"
