Stop Shadowbanning People On Chat Without Notification.
Please stop shadowbanning chat users (specifically when they are using VPNs) while letting them think everything is ok, because it's messed up. People are being shadow banned and thinking nobody cares about what they're saying. You are playing games with their heads when you do this. Stop it.
Even though I read that Twitch does not advertise the IP address of a streamer, I still agree. People use VPN's for many reasons and they should be able to keep them active while on Twitch with no issue. ESPECIALLY if they're a streamer. Little things like that just make people feel safer.
Also has twitch considered that a large number of their content creators use VPN's as a safety necessity? My chat is constantly disconnecting and reconnecting because of my VPN and I miss messages in my channel all of the time and it is really disheartening when I am trying to grow my stream and people think I am ignoring them.
Did Twitch consider that a large number of the creators on their platform use brand deals from partners such as NordVPN to support themselves? No, you didn't care, because this doesn't affect corporate Twitch, only the streamers.
If they are going to ban IPs they should be transparent and give a brief description as to why it was blocked. Users want their privacy and if they want to use a VPN that is their prerogative. Stop silencing people. Stop preventing privacy.
