  1. By using chat commands, a streamer or mod can ban and block a user, which is good if there is a need to remove someone from the chat, but I believe there should be an option to report a user in a similar fashion, for example:

    /report [user] [reason]

    With many bans and blocks relating to bots and the recent rise in IP grabbing/unaccessible bot channels, I believe there should be an alternate way to report the user.

  2. Can we have live usernames, like neon colored ones or rainbow colored that you can buy from twitch. twitch could implement these and sell them for a reasonable price. Inside a store designated for users specifically

  3. 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.

  4. Sometimes the enter key gets bumped when typing messages, which then submits a message that is incomplete according to the chatter's intent. Having the user level option to require Shift + Enter to submit a chat message would be harder to accidentally trigger this scenario.

  5. I would love if Twitch could add something special for pride month! (Apart from the Pride emotes ofc!!!)

    So I was thinking, what if we were to add a chat appearance setting to change your name to rainbow during pride month? it would be absolutely adorable and a way for us to all come together as one!

    I don’t know if this would be possible, but it’s just an idea!

  6. There should be a way to chat while watching on full screen. Have a small space to type your message and keep the way messages are shown on the in game chat. (the way the streamer can see messages on their screen while playing. But add a chat bar for the people watching the gamer.

  7. Would be great to have a tool that allows people from chat to collaborate (play together) in video games. Since they are watching a stream they most likely play the game and most of the time like-minded people watch the same streamer. Making it seamless to play with someone from chat would increase community collaboration.

    Link steam, blizzard, uplay or origin with Twitch. Need to allow users to send invite to become friends on a client or to invite to game.

    Hit me up if you have questions on the feature request.

  8. I would love a Twitch chat with a better performance because when I type something in Chat I have to wait sometimes up to 3 seconds until the message gets sent and I did not ever have the same problem with external chat programs.

  9. When I try to whisper someone, a pop up chat appears under the stream screen as default but when that happens I cannot see the buttons of full-screen, clip or settings. I believe that's a UX problem and should be improved.

  10. Let the content creator can change the background theme of the chatbox. So, it can be more than the normal White or Black theme chatbox. What do I mean about that, I'm talking about a little bit of customization. The content creator can the background color to Red, Blue, to Twitch's iconic Purple color, or whatever they like as long it's following Twitch's TOS. The letter's color will automatically change to adapt to the background color, so the viewers can still see the chat easily.

  11. The "Chat Filters" option should be stored server side and global (for all channels) and not just in a cookie. I don't want to disable the filters every time I log in to Twitch and set it for every single channel separately.

  12. I was doing a Qna and I wanted it to be a little more interactive. So I am suggesting voice recording chat.
    So, a viewer that wants to say something with their voice gets 10 seconds or (set-time) to say anything you want and the whole stream gets to hear it when requested. This would work if mods would review the voice recording to hear and see if its appropriate or not.

  13. As a viewer, I don't want my "send a message" box flickering, so that my eyes can be saved.

    Steps to reproduce:
    when watching a stream,
    1. click on the "send a message" box and don't type anything
    2. hover the mouse cursor over the 'followed channels' or 'recommended channels' without typing anything
    3. you can notice the "send a message" box flickering between the 'clicked' & 'non-clicked' mode

    *It's not a big deal... but kind of disturbing.

  14. For example when the entire chat spams "LUL" emote because something funny happened, you just have to left click at one of the "LULs" sent by users and it automatically gets put into your "Send a Message" box ready to use.

    This would make the Chat more active because you dont have to type the entire emote name especially if its an emote you dont know the name of, then you could just click on it and send it, instead of checking the name and typing it.

  15. One aspect of Twitch I personally dislike is that any user can obtain any color in your room. Its detrimental to the theme you've created, or purchased, for your stream. It isn't personalized to you, its personalized to them...

    I would absolutely love it if Twitch streamers had an option to set up customized username colors for their chatters based on their interactions.

    For example;
    - First-time viewer; Green
    - Viewer that hasn't followed; Gray
    - Follower; Purple
    - Donator; Orange
    etc...

    This way, you can see at a glance who contributes to your stream regularly, and not only that,…

  16. When a user does not follow the community rules and the message is overlooked by the moderator, there should be a notify moderator icon next to the messages to notify the moderator of that message and help the channel's layout.

  17. I was moderating an english chat, where somebody sent

    "Dziękuję za emotkę 2020Unroll @username" after username subscribed.

    The chat is supposed to be english only so the message would have needed to be moderated if I did not understand the content. The stream is tagged as "English".

    This message should be in the streamer language by default instead of the viewer one.

  18. give mods the ability to have a swordfight/minigame in chat. this would give the mods something to do in chat and also be a way to let the streamer know mods are always active. i have seen streamers ask if there is a mod in chat. this way all the streamer would have to do is look over and see there are at least 2 active at the time.

  20. When you write "@" or "/" you can see all users or moderator commands, and I think it would be cool to just type ! and see all the commands you can do.
    Like !time or !discord...

    I didn't see somebody put this idea, if it was, I'm sorry !
