  1. In the new badge-related endpoints, badge objects in returned sets contain only their IDs and URLs, which compared to the only existing alternative (undocumented badges.twitch.tv endpoint announced in twitchdev forums[1]) isn't enough for things like custom chat clients that are very popular among many Twitch users.
    Ever since that undocumented endpoint came to existence, we've been using it in our chat client and would at least need "description" and "title" properties that are present in badges.twitch.tv to display information about badges properly and replicate webchat's behavior. I believe both APIs use the same internal data (at least for Global Badges)…

  2. Add a "/users"-like API method that supports display names. This will let bot commands which have a username parameter support Asian-family character display names to be passed the same as Roman-alphabet channel names. It will also let systems verify that a provided name (channel or display) exists on Twitch, and merge any information for a user's display name with the information for that user's channel name, to prevent "duplicate" sets of data: one for the display name; one for the channel name.

  4. The problem occurred after the release of an extension game i developed, where the viewers could spend channel points to obtain in-game currency. With over 6000 viewers, the chat became impossible to moderate as there were so many messages per second. This very simple option would greatly relieve the chat in such situations.

    E.g.: "is_highlighted" (defaults to true)

  5. Please provide a way for third party developers to obtain currently available songs and meta data related to those songs.

    Both in a "get all songs" method and "search for songs"

    Search should be

    • free text (like game/category search)
    • song ID (to get specific song data)
    • artist ID (to get songs by an artist)
    • album ID (to get songs on an album)
    • by category/genre (to get say only Dance music or chill out music)

  7. With the new Raids API, it should mirror IRC where channel editors can trigger raid/unraid. Currently, this is not supported (need broadcaster user access token). Until this functionality is added, I will not be migrating to Helix Raids

  9. Currently, this endpoint: https://tmi.twitch.tv/group/user/<CHANNEL>/chatters

    Can be used freely without any authentication or scope.

    This is definitely being abused with the hate raids. It's been abused by malicious actors for a long time now. Why has this endpoint been created in such a way that there is zero barrier for a malicious actor to obtain user data?

    Even the Get Polls endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-polls) requires both authentication and a scope!

    How has that Get Chatters endpoint not yet been removed an replaced with a secure Helix endpoint, as stated here: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/39145294-chatters-viewers-helix-api-endpoint

    This is not ok.

  10. Similar to - https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/41272606-extend-start-commercial-error-message-to-return-r

    Please provide an endpoint that returns the following information

    • adverts last run
    • adverts can run next (retry_after)
    • adverts max duration

    SImilar to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/41272606-extend-start-commercial-error-message-to-return-r

    It would be useful to provide better tooling for streamers whom have a contract requiring ads to be run.

  12. When streamers run ads, they'd like to know how long the PreRolls are disabled for.

    Please extend https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#start-commercial to return preroll data

    For example

    {
    "data": [{
    "length" : 60,
    "message" : "",
    "retry_after" : 480
    }]
    }

    becomes

    {
    "data": [{
    "length" : 60,
    "message" : "",
    "retryafter" : 480,
    "preroll
    ends": unixTimestamp
    }]
    }

  13. We should be able to CRUD the Role Manager that is in the Streamers Dashboard. This would resolve multiple UserVoice requests including CRUD for VIP, Mod & the Editor migration from v5.

  16. Hey, not sure if this has been posted as a uservoice already, I took a quick glance using the above title as a query and couldnt find anything about it.

    It would be nice with the new Custom Tags feature that we would be able to get a list of streams with x tag(s) for 3rd party use. Id envision this to either be its own endpoint, or potentially added to the query property of the "Get Streams" endpoint, like Kraken used to do with title searching (Which also would be nice to have back in Helix)

  17. The API does not include any attribution info at the moment, it would be nice if we could get the artist's username and id with the emote data :)

  18. Endpoint to check if userID has a known bot or verified bot flag.

    Which currently exists as a undocumented v5/kraken endpoint.

    usercase: what rate limit does my bot have? I can check if my bot has mod but I can't check if my bot has verified bot.

  19. It would be useful if the following values could be added to each emote:

    • Channel Name (e.g. "owner name") - Obviously the name can be retrieved from the "owner id" by doing another API request, but it would be nicer to require fewer API requests
    • Tier - The "Get Channel Emotes" endpoint already contains a "tier" value, it would be nice if this one would also have it

    Additionally, not all emote sets appear to be supported by the endpoint. For example the following emote sets (from the "emote-sets" tag and also valid emote sets in the v5 "Get User…

  20. The addition of the Emote Library that is coming soon is a fantastic addition, this is great for solving the issue of disparity between partners and affiliates on emote variety, without undermining the parner program and is a fantastic compromise.

    I would like to suggest the addition to the Twitch API to allow for enabling and disabling of active emotes from the Emote library via a privlaged API call from a token with sufficient privlages through oAUTH.

    An example of the proposed usecase would be 4 API calls:
    -Activate Emote [Params: Emote ID, (Optional: Emote Slot)]
    -Deactivate Emote by ID…
