  1. Voluntary assistance or hiring of Finnish mods to the twitch as moderators who could put the Chaters obeyed the rules of the service.
    One example many still use is the word spm which has been banned for more than half a year

  2. There are some channels discriminating between the audience in the tournaments you perform through live broadcasts on Twitch. People have the freedom to use "God or Jesus" on the chat screen to mean "shocked", right? Why are individuals of different faiths (for exp: members of Islam) subject to a 10-minute ban when they write the word "mashallah" in their own religion on the chat screen? The word mashallah is not a prophet's name but an internationally known as a admiration. Please a show your common sense and anti-segregation behavior on this issue as well. I would like to point out…

  3. Make The In-Game Overlay adjustable to fit with different size configurations of monitor selections. It should be an adjustable slider to change the font and size of the entire in-game overlay. (This is regarding the Twitch Studio Beta app)

  4. Add a clickable timestamp in chat history so moderators can see when a specific message was sent during the stream for more context. Merged with this idea i would like to suggest that moderators or editors can see removed messages in the VOD chat so that they can take proper action when reviewing an unban request.

  6. In a busy stream the chat is completely useless. It is just a wall of emotes.
    It would be nice if the chat was mainly texts while emotes could be (optionally) stacked in the video view lower corner. So when something funny happens and people start sending emotes it would be a cool thing to have stacks at the bottom piling up.

  7. BTTV is trash, and the entire community is cringe. I would appreciate it if Twitch allowed users to block their content, as it is not a part of the platform and 3rd party apps should not dominate chat. I would also like to point out that the BOOBA emote is extremely sexist, and only enables children to continue a mindset that has historically oppressed women as sexual objects. Finally, I would like an option to not have animated emojis in Twitch chat, because it is annoying and cringe.

  8. We can follow Twitch channels in which we don't wanna use the chat at all for more passive style (ie: big live events) and others in which the chat is a core part of our experience (ie: small streamers with a tight-knit community).

    The current behavior is for the chat to remember the last status between hidden/shown, no matter what channel you are on, I'd like it to be linked to the channel.

    Hey there!

    When it comes to seeing people’s names in chat have you tried our ‘readable colors’ setting for chat? It’s located under chat settings > chat appearance > readable colors should be toggle-able. We implemented that so colors in chat would be more accessible for users.

    You can find more information about chat here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/chat-basics

  11. This is a two part idea. Part one is to help viewers in large channels to be able to read and interact with chat better: 'Instanced chat groups' of around 500 chatters each so we can actually read chat in larger streams and it might also make moderating easier if mods could focus on smaller groups. (Mods would have a checkbox list of channel instances to opt into moderating, or be set to "auto assign" which would divide the instances between the active mods.)

    And part two is 'VIP chatter' status (not the same as VIP's) which would be a…

  12. I think it would help a lot to reward loyal users to have a few seconds of spotlight after sending a message so they do not get lost amid the chat spam in big channels.

    If VIP user sends a message ALL chat messages pause for 5 seconds. Specially for mods... some kind of option to send a "Remarked Message" so maybe it has a 10s chat pause. That way certain information can come across during chat crazyness...
    If Tier 3 Sub sends a message all chat messages pause for 3 seconds.
    Even 1 second between messages would mean quite…

  13. Um pequeno erro de escrita na tradução PT-BR na mensagem do chat sobre emotes animados.
    Está aparecendo a mensagem escrito: "Emotes animados podem ser DESBILITADOS nas configurações". A palavra correta seria Desabilitados.

  14. A suggestion would be to put a temporary icon identifying the user as the stream raider next to their username in the chat of that stream that lasts for several chat messages/set time period and then disappears. This can be used to give extra visibility in the chat for the raiding streamer.

  15. https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference/#get-channel-stream-schedule

    Creating schedule segments uses IANA timezone names, but there's no way to see the specified timezone when the schedule is viewed.

  17. If you are a mod, you already know what this feels like. You are modding for the streamer and the chat moves and you see someone type something inappropriate or something you should be deleting, wrong behaviors etc..

    Chat moves fast and the messages move and so do the little options to delete/timeout/ban someone. At times, you click on one of those options but right in that instant the chat moves and you end up targeting the wrong person who has never done anything causing them to maybe get offended and possibly leave the stream.

    The idea is to allow…

  18. Is it possible that you can make the chat log search easier for mods by letting us sort by old or new comment first, show only deleted messages, responded comments etc., and also let us search by specific words and dates? That would make the modding a lot easier. Thanks!

  19. I'd love to be able to not allow accounts created within the past 24 hours not have chat privileges. Some sort of feature like that where we can kinda keep out spam and trolls.

  20. hello, how come we can't leave chat messages on a replay? I think we used to have that ability in the past. Was it removed? Please bring it back, thank you!
