  1. Why not do it like in other competitors so that for example cheering messages hang at the top for a while and that they can be read while they hang there at the top. And make a selection of simple followers as it is done for subscribers, you can also do it for a while, for example, the icon with an avatar hung at the top of the chat and then disappeared.

  2. Chat latency needs to be improved upon, because it's constantly trying to send and receive 0 Bytes of data which in turn causes the chat to need to constantly "reconnect". I've monitored over the period of 20 minutes to an hour where the chat is constantly flooded with "Welcome to chat", and the network monitor shows the Twitch chat API constantly sending 0 Bytes taking up to 1.0 minutes to 1.6 minutes, where else everything takes ⅓ of that to load at at rate of around 3 ms - 400ms.

  3. there is still no option to change the letter size - only by using bttv! Would be very very nice to do it directly on twitch without a 3rd party tool! Also i suggest an option for different sizes for the video/stream player - right now i have big video window which uses to much space

  4. "Chat to be first!" Once someone accomplishes that then it changes to "Welcome to the chat room!"

  5. Holding CTRL and pressing the Delete key should delete the full word to the right of the cursor, like how holding CTRL and pressing Backspace deletes whole word to the left of the cursor, but doesn't seem to work on the text boxes of Twitch. I only tested the chat input and the search bar at the top.

  6. I see many live streamers in a blind run who keep running the warning messages about hints, suggestions and spoilers and while I'm looking at all of it I keep thinking "why enable the live chat at all in this case"? "Why stream live at all when the option does not exist"?

    The only way I could imagine it's possible is making the bot spam the clear command on chat continuously, but it would clear all the messages of the bot too that the others could find useful.

    Other streaming sites have this option, so why not Twitch?

  7. Create a separate chat channel that only allows only 10 comments to be posted a minute (or something similar), with an added chat queue system. If I type a comment, I will have to wait in a queue for my comment to be posted, as only a certain amount of comments will be posted to the chat within a timeframe.

    This will make it so a chat channel exists without a crazy amount of comment volume. It will allow streamers to actually see and read comments people are making. Yes, it does mean a lot of comments won't be posted,…

  9. I would like to be able to use gifs in Twitch chat like I can in Discord chats and on Twitter. Some things can be more easily expressed via gifs. If this feature is implemented it could also come with the ability to ban certain gifs such as if a channel has something against pasta they could ban all gifs with 'pasta' as one of the search tags.

  10. When we're watching a broadcast, I think it would be a good idea for the whole chat log to be scrollable and not just snippets cut off like every 5 minutes.

  12. I totally get the reasoning but lets be honest a lot of the humor on twitch is cheeky straddling the line of offensive. Without the context of that channels convo at the time it totally misrepresents the jokes being made when viewed in that history manor. If you dont understand this view then you dont understand comedy and comedy is a massive part of the twitch community. This feature is misrepresenting every ones statements making them seem harsher then they actually are. The art of comedy is to getting people to laugh at things they never thought would be funny…

  13. A number of developers, voice actors, etc have come into my stream to watch the community enjoy their creation. Some of these people are truthful, some are lying about being devs in order to get attention. Please provide a verification process and badge for game industry people so they can be readily recognized.

    For larger streamers, having a special badge will draw the streamer's eye to the devs comments so they can better keep track of what they're saying. For streamers of any size, having an easily recognizable developer in chat will help boost chat liveliness.

  14. So that I could tell how many more symbols I can add to my chat message before the moderating bot would delete that message and time me out for sending it. Accordingly to the streamer's settings of the moderating bot of course.

  15. Followers-only mode is discouraging finding new streams. Especially when streams have ONE HOUR followers only mode. The mode is misused to gain followers instead of preventing spam. Why do I have to follow every channel I want to chat in?

  16. For anyone who isn't using the twitch website to stream e.g. console users or even allow mods to do it for you. This would be a much appreciated implementation after Communities were taken away.

  17. I really want a @mods and @everyone. So it will show highlighted for everyone. But i would like different highlights on the @. So if the mod @ someone it shows up different so it stands out more to the viewers.

  18. It is currently IMPOSSIBLE to moderate large channels because I can't scroll up to ban someone breaking twitch TOS (racism etc). Can the devs please just stop chat from scrolling when we scroll upwards in chat? This isn't something very difficult to implement.

  19. This way wouldnt be necessary to use the mouse to interact with twitch channels chat if you are in fullscreen, then I could sit comfortably in my chair with only my keyboard in my lap while watching ;) The shortcut could be Alt+C

  20. I think it would be cool if Twitch partnered up with a breast cancer research charity and If users donate to charity through Twitch they could unlock a pink ribbon global badge and maybe some emotes. I think adding a badge could make it easier for users to find out about these charities and if they donate to it through Twitch they can be sure that the charity is a legitimate foundation.

    I'm not very good at photoshop but I made a concept for the badge.
