  1. When sending a whisper on the website, the minimized whisper makes the player controls located on the bottom right inaccessible when in theatre mode. This way leaving theatre mode without the keybinds is only possible after closing the whisper. Moving the minimized whisper slightly to the left would resolve said issue

  2. ¡Hola comunidad de Twitch!

    Hay algo que me gustaría que fuese modificada en cuanto al historial del chat. Les dejo un ejemplo:

    En la configuración del canal en la sección de moderación existe una característica llamada "Herramientas de moderador en el chat" la cuál si se desactiva, los moderadores no podrán ver el historial del chat de ningún miembro, incluyendo el mío. Y la idea principal de esta publicación, es poder brindar la opción a los titulares del canal (emisores /streamers) de desactivar el historial de mi propio chat, pero no el de los demás.

    En ves de desactivar el…

  3. I understand that your shadowban on VPN users is probably in place for legitimate reasons (ie. to prevent people from ruining the chat experience for others with spam accounts and whatnot). However, if I am a VIP in someone's channel, it doesn't make sense for Twitch to interfere with my ability to participate in their chat. It's kind of annoying having to disconnect from my VPN just to talk to some of my favorite streamers. I don't think the streamers would want their VIPs to be unable to chat with them either.
    Again, I'm not asking you to lift the…

  4. Some users are cheating by using farms of bots to spam their chat. They are doing this to make real viewers visit their stream, because usually viewers are watching channels where "some action" is happening.
    Real users and advertisers could see this kind of cheating if bots who post via API were highlighted or somehow marked.

  5. Give Editors the ability to mod and unmod non-editor mods.

    Editors should be a role given to an entrusted friend/moderator so they should be able to perform additional tasks on behalf of the broadcaster in the certain events of large streamers not always having time or the ability to manage their chat moderators, thus many streamers put one of their tenured, more trusted moderators to lead the mod team on how to moderate the chat. Among these responsibilities, modding/unmodding should be one of them on behalf of the streamer focusing on growing their brand.

    There are certain third party programs…

  6. I'm looking for a better way to identify who is watching my stream currently, I feel like this could greatly help smaller streamers by giving them a way to address people who are lurking and start conversation

  7. ID display in chat window is unnecessary. Just showing your nickname is enough. (For non-admins) (add setting)
    채팅창에 아이디 표시는 불필요합니다. 닉네임만 보여줘도 충분합니다. (관리자가 아닌 사람들에게는요) (설정 추가)

  8. When a chatter is being "watched" by mods.. dim their chat for the streamer. Perhaps also highlight chat for other mods?

  10. For affiliates, you can create roles for users. For example, instead of just VIP and Moderator, you can create a role, change it's icon and appearance. (ex: Friends Role.)

  11. Chat Roulette Style View Partying/Chat Sessions:

    Take random/anonymous people from chat and have them video/voice chat with each other and allow them to decide whether or not they want to rope more people into their convo too (so it's not so convoluted/everybody talking at once, you know.) Allow streamer to make parties/rooms if desired etc.

    Muscle away at the use of Discord, Zoom, Hangouts (whatever the kids are using these days), would be convenient way for streamer's communities to become "stronger", more "together". Enjoy the shared viewing experience more a more authentic capacity than text and spazzing out with emotes/ascii…

  12. As of right now the "USERS IN CHAT" menu displays all usernames in title-case.
    However the "STREAM CHAT" as well as the profile pop-up and profile pages all honor the capitalization set by the user. Referring to usernames that are all lowercase or have specific characters capitalized.

    To add consistency in styling and improve readability, I would like to suggest styling the usernames the same way globally (on the entire platform).

  13. Watchalong streams often have people posting spoilers. Some moderators introduce emote mode, but this prevents discussion.

    A solution to this would be a feature to introduce a moderator-controlled delay to the chat. Therefore, people could continue writing comments live, but everyone elsewould get them a bit later (say 5, 10, 20, 30 seconds).

  14. Block all links automatically that are not trusted/owned by twitch and make the streamers manually add links they trust to a whitelist for whispers and their twitch chat

    Noticed for the past 2 years that there has been active group DDoSing old school runescape streamers with fake lookalike ip grabbing links, like clipstwitch .live, imgur .us, gyazo .nl and yȯutube .com and they dont even get punished for it

  15. Since a few days, I noticed my chat input box has additional scroll buttons that overlays the emoticon button. I have uploaded a small screenshot at https://imgur.com/a/GmtufMp. This only seems to show when my zoom level in chrome is 100% or lower. When zooming at 110% or above the buttons disappear.

    Windows 10, Chrome 94.0.4606.61, 2560x1440

  17. I'd like to see a "Safe User Chat List" As it currently is I am being plagues by bot accounts spammers and griefers. I know I can add a few people to VIP and Mod, but those were folks that have occasionally subscribed. This means I no longer get the occasional sub from them. Due to the current griefer/bot garbage I've had to set my chat to subscriber only.

    If I had a Safe user Chat-list I could add people to, to allow them to chat then they coudl still donate, and even when not subbed still chat.

  18. Twitch really needs some sort of a reputation system for each person in a chat. Every time someone toxic is flagged/reviewed by a moderator in any streamer's chat, their rating could drop. Then channels could set a minimum rating level requirement. Have a low rating for being a toxic human? So long!

    Of course, there would be bully mods that pick on people in chat that they do not like and dock them points on purpose. That could be a problem. It's just really annoying when you are conversing with a decent human in chat and then a negative, immature…

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
