  1. a filter for chat (like slow mode) but instead of slowing down the time a chatter can send a message, all people can send messages at whatever speed they want but only a random few actually go through. This would help bigger creators who have high viewership, because even if they have 30 second slowmode on, there is still thousands of people who can send a message within that time. This also helps creators who don't want to use 'money mode' but would still like their chat to be viewable. There could be a setting to determine how many messages…

  3. There should be a chat restriction that allows the streamer to restrict chat to all or some of the viewers, based on how long they have been watching. Similar to how Follower Only chat allows the streamer to restrict chat to all or some of the stream's followers, based on how long they have followed.

    I think even a 5 minute timer before chatting would deter a significant amount of harassment, and it should have less of a stigma than Follower Only chat.

  4. Mods and VIP should have a feature where they can have their own text to speech sometimes streamers don’t see their messages because they have a big following and chat goes by fast.

  5. I've been looking at the way messages refresh in a busy chat channel. All messages are shifted upward every time a refresh takes place, thus, changing their location all the time. This makes it difficult to finish reading messages, as your eyes need to re-adjust constantly to new messages as well as all old messages re-appearing in new places. This is the case, even though messages stay on-screen sufficient time to read them, if only they didn't move.

    So, currently you see:
    message 1
    message 2
    message 3 <--

    followed by
    message 2
    message 3 <--
    message 4

    and:
    message…

  6. Oftentimes interesting topics come up in streams but the only way to chat about it is via @ which everyone can see. After a while you need to drop the topic to not bother everyone else. It would be very useful to have the ability to create a temporary (whisper) group to continue chatting about that topic without bothering the stream's chat that might already have moved on/lost interest.

  10. Am requesting this feature, because at the moment you can't deny receiving Moderator access without resorting to extreme measures.

    There's already a setting that allows non-followers not to get sub-gifted, but it would be nice if there was either a default or a toggle that allowed non-followers not to get granted moderator access too.
    Additionally, it helps a little with chat security (granting the wrong username access etc).

    Ergo, it makes viewers keep their privacy (being able to automatically dodge moderator grants) and it makes the mechanic of broadcasters granting them more secure.

    Have added "Broadcaster & Bot" in the…

  11. There is something I want to say about the follow-only chat mode.
    In order to prevent indiscriminate chatting as soon as it enters streaming, it uses a follow-only chat mode.
    When using this, the time setting is possible and the chat is not available for at least 10 minutes.
    I think 10 minutes is a little long, so I personally want to set it to about 5 minutes.
    Therefore, I hope that streamers can freely set the time setting in the follow-only chat mode.

  13. Nice idea to just feature followers in chat sometimes, but shouldn't be used all or most of the time. Some might have good reasons to not follow a streamer and still want to chat with others. They should not be forced to follow a streamer to be able to chat with others. Twitch has tools to stop spam, trolls and they should be used instead of making the chat followers only.

  14. Instead of slow mode for high view channels, create a system where comments appear every 20 seconds no matter how frequent people comment. With even 40 people chatting at the same time, it can become quite overwhelming. With this, it will give the streamer time to respond to every comment and make sure no one who has a valid question or comment is left out.

  15. Since some channels can be host to countless viewers at once, it can be really hard to keep up with the chat for either the streamer or the viewer. What if we give streamers the option to have parallel chats that are subdivided how they choose (whether based on subscription level or something else). It gives another incentive to donate, subscribe, and more, AND it gives the more devoted viewers a more easy way to follow chat for the streamer WHILE giving the streamer further options to customize their channel and the user experience for their viewers.

  16. When doing a stream that puts me far away from my computer, I like to use my iPad with the popout chat to read chat. But the "top donators" badge at the top, and the chat box at the bottom take up nearly 1/3 of my screen real estate (especially when scaling up font). I'd prefer the ability to go into the chat settings for the popout and hide them, even if I need to do it manually every time. This is easily solvable with a toggle that runs a tiny bit of Javascript hiding the divs.

  17. 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.

  18. It's cool to be able to add someone as a friend by clicking their name in the chat, but it would be nice to be able to follow their channel as well.

  19. Hello I would like to give a suggestion. you could create in the whisper a tool for people to create groups, so you would help in the interaction of the stremers to call another to participate in the live one of the others also of people who watch can have a good communication between them seeing the same live. thus uniting people without having to use other applications for that.
    thanks for the good work always.

  20. I think it would be cool if we could use 'Escape' on keyboard to exit out of chat, returning focus to the main Twitch window.

    This is because, when I click in chat, then want to full screen using 'F', I have to click back on the main Twitch window, then press 'F'; instead of just 'Escape', 'F' which would be much more elegant.

    Thanks
