  1. It would be really useful if there was an option to hide the live results of a poll, till the timer runs out.

    We use polls alot during stream to have the chat decide what they would like the streamer to do next, but a number of users like to wait till the last few seconds and vote just to make the poll come out 50/50, because they think its hilarious but it really ruins the vibe the streamer is going for.

    It would be amazing if there was a "hide live results" setting on the poll itself. Once the…

  5. Add a Prompt for when Users have Whispers Blocked/Turned OFF. Don't provide a box to type in, at all. e.g. just a simple notification a user has whispers off when a mod clicks 'Quick Whisper'

    Many moderators try to do modding in whispers when possible to avoid derailing or subduing chat -- as in-chat moderation can put a damper on good vibes or 'invite' viewers to feel as if they should participate. However, the recent surge in numbers of viewers who have whispers turned off means we may spend a couple minutes typing out a whisper only for it to…

  7. Streamelements chat bot does not recognize hangul characters when streamers do shoutouts and report API ERROR when doing so. It's been like this sine it was first pushed out and seems to have not been fixed at all. Any plans that this gets fixed or do I have to submit a ticket to have my display name changed in english since Korean display name users can't change their display name?

  8. Highlighting have been good but the only thing I find missing is the ability to highlight new accounts, of say less then a week old. As mod it can use this to determine a bot / troll, if a said account is new and how they are perceived in chat.

  9. If a hype train is going or the streamer runs a poll, there is a notification window on top of the chat, which blocks some of the chat.

    I'd appreciate an option to dismiss this notification pop up (x).

  10. The sending of spam messages via whisper has become a serious problem on Twitch in Portuguese, in view of this, I suggest the creation of a filter that retains suspicious spam messages in some other box.

    Generally the messages follow the same writing pattern with spammers asking for a donation of money to their bank accounts under the guise of experiencing financial hardship, so I believe a simple AI should be able to retain most of the unwanted messages.

    An option to block specific terms in the spam filter would also be welcome.

  11. A lot of times if someone raids in and a lot of chat activity goes on during stream, it is hard for the broadcaster to read or see the person who raided in their chat messages. My idea is to spotlight the raider if they are being shouted out with the "/shoutout" command for a minute or so.

  12. I thought it would be a great idea if we as steamers could give people more roles than VIPs, mods or editors. Such as discord, different and certain roles with badges and a bigger interaction with chat and the people in it.

    Everyone could be able to get a role and be able to interact with roles.

    There would be more customisation in your own hands as a streamer and a new way to get people to chat and come visit in your chats/streams

  13. Problem:
    - Right now it appears as if a self-hosted and thus unverified bot with a separate standard Twitch account is shadow-banned from whispering people through WebSockets (wss://irc-ws.chat.twitch.tv:443). It looks like it works, but the messages never arrive, I've tried with my own bot account and friend's bots.

    Solution:
    - To me, it seems reasonable that a bot that has been set to be moderator in a channel should also be able to whisper users that are currently connected to that same channel.

    Additions:
    - It could even be further restricted to when the channel is live if need be.…

  14. Upgrade the /shoutout command to have a browser source overlay that plays clips. Broadcaster can limit how long the clips will be played and the creator of the clips can toggle a "Clip Available for Shout Out" option for each clip that way us smaller streamers who enjoy video shout outs can still do them and the other creators can choose what clips appear.

    If a creator has no clips designated for Shout Outs, then their profile picture will appear with their name.

  15. I would love to have the chance to give some reaction to an another user message. This could help even the streamer to select wich messages are worth to read and answer (if it is a question).

  16. Ability to have different chat colors on different channels. e.g. for one red chat color for the other blue chat color. This can also be done as a Turbo or Prime Gaming feature.

  17. Hi Twitch,

    could you present the information displayed in the chat for the users in a little more detail->

    Currently you can see the following in the chat:
    - last follow activity (date)
    - Subscriptions (in series, total subscriptions)
    - badges etc
    My current suggestion would be:
    - first follow activity (date)
    - week watching time (time in hrs)
    - monthly watching time (time in hrs)

    Thanks in advance!

  18. If someone forget to set a space after end of sentence point (.) Twitch chat make a link out of it. Example: ...is really heavy.for years i try to... The "heavy.for" is shown as a link. I'm sure it will be misused in the future, when more sublevel domains are on the market. We have the it for italy domain for example. You could just do a page like ****.it and post a sense making sentence around this "link"... You know what I mean...

  19. So, I know Pride Months is over soon, but it's never to late to do it.

    I wanted to show my support to Pride Month and me as many others we have done it already.

    But I would love an option for us to use a rainbow color username during Pride Month to show the support.

  20. wenn in theatre mode with the chat under the video, the leaderboard blocks 1/3rd of the chat window (atleast on my screens)

    please let us disable the leader board in the chat setting so we can se more of the chat

    side note the "stream chat" bar that seperates chat from the video is way thicker than it needs to be blocking another 1-2/10th of the possible chat window
