  1. I propose a mass user chat filter/ignore feature where you are able to set certain mass filters to finally rid the spam/trolls/racists etc from chat.

    Examples:

    1) A user could set their chat to ignore all users under a certain age (say 18 for example) -- this will reduce the immature chat

    2) Ignore chat from all subs from JohnDoe's stream (some streams are spam heavy which bleeds into other channels)

    3) Ignore all users who use certain words (allows user to add custom or pre-selected filters for users who use abusive/hateful language)

    This feature will hopefully allow a positive…

  2. Hello, sometimes I tend to chat with people therefore I completely miss out on what's actually happening with the game that the person is playing. On the other hand - sometimes I tend to watch broadcaster(s) in full screen and therefore if someone wanted to talk to me or just say something quickly - I would never know because I wouldn't be paying attention to chat. I can see that you guys are trying to keep things nice and simple here on Twitch and I appreciate it, you've already implemented "Whisper" feature - it's okay I guess, but what we…

  3. After clicking "View all rooms" add a option to see latest messages you've been mentioned in, while being in the channel(s).

  5. So far, the chat "delay" value is only readable from the API by the broadcaster.
    I think that misses the point of having this value accessible.

    To me, the point of this value is to be able to honnor the delay for chat client developpers (chatty, chatterino, ...)
    But that fact that it's only accessible by the broadcaster makes it quite useless. The only point I see in its current state is the abaility to display it at some point.

    In an ideal world this delay would simply be handled server-side instead of client-side as it is right now, but…

  7. As a mod, I'm able to expand my chat but as a viewer I am not. Why is this restricted to broadcasters/mods? Give the user flexibility.

  8. Shoutout (/Shoutout) should be more visible to the viewers! Give it a special color/design that sticks out.

  9. Using /announce should be more visible to the end-user. "Highlight My Message" has more visibility than the /announce command.

  11. Often channels are hit by viewers who are currently being shown video Ads such as Prerolls, or during a commercial break sending complaints to the chat about ads they are currently watching - which disrupts the flow of conversation in the chat, and the experience for viewers who are not currently watching ads.

    The suggestion is to take away the option for users to type messages into chat while preroll advertisements are still being shown.

    And give channels an optional setting to limit the ability to Chat to Ad-Free users (Turbo Users and Subscribers) And VIPs/Moderators which would be applied…

  13. Stamp list and chat banner overlap when watching the stream on Chrome when it is in theater mode.
    This happens when you resize your browser.
    I want to put the stamp list on the front.

  14. There are channels that I want to display the founder badge and channels that I do not want to display.
    I would like to be able to set each channel individually.

    Audiences had similar opinions.

  15. It is no surprise that if you watched any stream, most streamers have "Regulars" that they game with. I think there should be a badge a streamer can give to those that they play with constantly on stream.

  17. I don't check twitch often for messages. I would love to have the ability to block getting whispers completely. not just stop it for strangers (people i don't follow or sub to) but from everyone.

    I've had people i follow use it as a way to be like "join my discord" which personally freaks me out, then i've had people get mad that i didn't see their whisper while i'm streaming.

    i wish i could just block it fully so I didn't have to deal with it anymore.

  18. The Viewercard for each user, specifically those with permissions in each channel to use newly added commands, such as /announce and /shoutout, seems to be missing the output for those commands.

    While i understand shoutouts actions are visible from the Modview/Dashboard, it would still be nice to be able to scroll through a moderator's chat history to view who they've previously shouted out.

    It would also be nice, and downright common sense, to be able to view the content from a moderator's previous /announce use.

  20. My chat filters delete a couple pretty specific terms/phrases. But even people whom I've seen before in my chat and enjoy the company of still fall prey to my filters from time to time. And it's quite disheartening when all of their contributions to the chat are completely purged because of one new message.

    With instances like this, for old and new users, it would benefit not just myself, but a good chunk of other streamers from what I've seen, to have things so that ONLY those individual messages with the actual filtered content gets deleted, as opposed to a…
