  1. Hello all, rather simple idea.

    Hovering over a hyperlink in chat would temporarily pause scrolling. In some high-volume chat clicking a small link in chat feels like a reaction time minigame.

    I understand you can scroll to pause chat but the ability to hover over, chat will be paused, and click conveniently would be really slick.

    Thanks!

  2. When tapping on the view counter, see number of unique chatters chatting now in chat (or number of users who send a message in the last minute) interesting for viewers and streamers, seeing it live. Since viewers does not correspond to number of people engaging with streamer or number of people streamer could engage with)

  4. I'd like a (payed) feature to erase my chat history, which is viewable by channels based on my username. It's fine my chat history stays known to Twitch itself, but I'd like to start with a clean slate because my account is quite old and I've said things in the past in certain channels that I regret.

  6. Allow creators to limit the allowable characters to be used in chat based on the languages the creator specifies. Link the languages to Unicode codepages to not unfairly limit non-Latin based languages. This could help alleviate some of the issues found with hatespeech and the recent hate raids. Messages that are filtered based on this, could be thrown into automod queue, or straight up not sent at all.

  7. There should be an option to set up a bot without making a new account.

    How it would work?
    You would have a bot tab, which allows you to get a link to connect other services to it like streamelements, streamlabs, etc

    What are the benefits:
    1) people don't have to get their bots a subscription
    2) it's extremely easy to customise
    3) no one has a reason to create bot accounts unless it's meant with malice. Which would help a ton with things like tracking follow bots and hate raid bots.

  8. By default, the chat embed shows a "Animated Emotes can be disabled in Settings" message. It shouldn't. It's confusing for every chat members. It just just be a text box and the messages. This message could animate in when the first Animated Emote is shown, not before that.

  9. Could You add the possibility to reply to an existing reply in chat ?
    The “reply” feature is cool but I think it’s kind of limited in the fact You only can reply to one message.

  10. When I thought I was discussing with the mod about my status about a channel I thought I was "off the mic". But apparently the mod conversation was "on a live mic".

    There should be a username@twitch.tv email address to do long conversations with a streamer that are not meant to be looked at immediately on the air, live.

    That way, if you want to discuss a permanent ban for one incident that was not clearly spelled out, and make your case, you can do it without risk of it being weaponized.

    There should be a difference between "premeditated" acts…

  11. Four things TBD to improve how Rules are displayed or dismissed.
    1. Remember whether or not someone has read the rule.
    → The way that Twitch remembers it is via cookies... Which is easily lost and leads to someone being upset if they have to be reminded EVERY SINGLE TIME cookies are cleared and on EVERY CHANNEL they go. At least have the decency to remember it!
    2. Auto-dismiss Chat Rules after some time.
    → Having to manually dismiss every single time can be quite a pain. So instead, add a timer for it to be dismissed automatically based on…

  14. Right now if you block a user and you moderate for a channel that said user is in, you will still see their messages. I have certain users blocked for a reason and me seeing them in chats that I moderate drives me away from the streams. The streamer does not want them banned, so that is not a viable option. I understand that as a moderator your job is to keep an eye on users, but other mods can help out regarding these instances.

  15. Add opportunity to hand over your VIP status to someone else in the chat, for example if you don't watch streamer anymore, or if you think that someone deserves it more than you.

  16. I really like having the "single bit cheered" badge even though I've cheered more. But if I cheer and end up as one of the top three for the week, or gift a sub and end up in the top three, or just... of its own accord, it changes it away from the one bit badge. Your choices should be your default.

  18. Please remove "Denmark" as a "bad word" from the Twitch Auto mod.
    It is silly and slightly offensive that the mere word of mentioning my country gets my message removed. Twitch is an international community and part of that is about talking about one home.

    Hey there!

    Definitely not expected behavior. Could we get the phrases you tried to type with Denmark so we can further investigate this? The more the better if possible.

  19. Add positive comment buttons on and off for the host to only read positive and ban all negative comments, it is either abusive, sexual, bully, or anything that relates to negative though.

  20. SUMMARY
    unlike most of the other "chat highlighting" ideas/complaints this idea is for a moderator tool

    it would be a button available in Moderator Mode alongside the time out and ban buttons next to each comment in the chat.

    The purpose of it is to ensure that other mods and the streamer notice that particular chat.

    USAGE
    for the average streamer the most common usage of this would be for one mod to warn other mods to watch a particular person in the chat. maybe that person is "testing the water" by making increasingly escalating comments, but has not "crossed…
