  1. Currently, it is easy to tell if a user that sent a message in a streamer’s channel is a subscriber, VIP, or moderator of that channel. However, there is no way to tell if that user is a follower of the channel.

    With the rise of hate raids and malicious messages, I want to ensure that if a streamer is using a chat box overlay, that they have the option to only let messages from followers appear. Malicious users usually don’t follow the channel, and so this will prevent their messages from appearing on stream.

    I do understand that this…

  3. For managing Bans without having to create an IRC connection and to remove the issue of running into the global message limit when banning large numbers of users or cleaning out a large banlist

  4. As soon as a user changes his name, the helix/users API can add an entry to the query of the old user name with the new one for a certain time.
    This allows bots that work with the username instead of the ID to react faster to the name change

  5. inserire una funzione di chiamata all'api per ritornare la lista dei vip di un determinato canale per poi fare un login riservato ai vip, non trovo funzioni nell'api e questa cosa mi rallenta i lavori. [LINGUAGE ITALIAN]

  6. Given the fact that Twitch had to take down the follow/unfollow api's due to bot programs that are out there - my suggestion would be to have an approved set of developers that propose and showcase their applications.

    This way Twitch could bring back the follow/unfollow API and any service or developer that was in violation of Twitch's TOS regarding the API could be warned and ultimately have their access and credentials removed.

    Twitch Developers could review the logs of which applications were connected with BOT services and immediately shut those down rather then removing the api in its entirety…

  7. Extend the banned API to allow filtering on the API by the moderator whom performed an action.

    Third party tools may need to check the actions that a given moderator did, or ask the moderator to reconcile their bans/actions post stream with additional resoaning/comments in an external tool

  8. Similar to https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213/suggestions/38203978

    But include the date/time of when the ban record is for.

    So for example

    {
    "user_id": "SomeID",
    "user_login": "SOMElogin",
    "user_name": "SOMEdisplay",
    "expires_at": "",
    "reason": "",
    "moderator_id": "15185913",
    "moderator_login": "barrycarlyon",
    "moderator_name": "BarryCarlyon"
    }
    

    I have no idea when this ban happened.

    UseCase: For considering unbans when reviewing data in an external tool, the date/time of the ban will be considered to determine if the user who is banned has "served" their time or not

  9. Kraken equivalent[1] of Get Users Follows offers a way to sort query results by either creation date, last broadcast or login name. There's also a way to sort results in either ascending or descending order. Helix however doesn't offer any ways of sorting results of your query and results are always shown descending without giving you the option to get those in ascending order.
    In case you need to fetch exactly the first follow or get followers that have been live last, it becomes problematic if your query has lots of results - you'd need to paginate through all of…

  10. 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)…

  11. The v5 endpoint contains the follower's account creation date, the new endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users-follows) does not.

    Knowing when a follower created their account is very useful to moderators monitoring recent follows to keep an eye on potentially problematic users (new account could mean a previously banned user returning) or to detect mass follows from bots (which often have a similar account creation date). Monitoring recent follows is especially useful in follow-only chat mode.

    While it is possible to get the account creation date from the "Get Users" endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users) and then merge it with the follower data,…

  12. The Create Poll endpoint has optional query parameters to allow additional votes using either bits or channel points.

    However, it doesn't actually allow multiple votes. This can be seen in the pubsub response which explictly states that "multi_choice" (property indicating whether additional votes are allowed) is not enabled.

    When creating a poll through the web interface, it works just fine as it is created through the GQL and not the API. The GQL message also has an additional property to explicitly allow additional votes, on top of the properties that are used to either allow additional votes by bits and/or…

  14. The Kraken API for querying videos lists the available resolutions for archived broadcasts and current streams. The new API does not.

  15. In V5, it is possible to get all emotes that existed on the platform via both
    "get-all-chat-emoticons"
    and
    "get-chat-emoticons-by-set" (when no sets are provided)

    This currently has no equivalence in Helix, and also has no listed migration path.

    This request is to create an endpoint that returns the list of all emote sets (and ideally their last update time) such as "get-all-emote-sets". This would allow a user to then get all emotes via the "helix get-emote-sets" endpoint that currently exists.

  16. Both of the APIs for getting subscriptions for a broadcaster don't include the actual date of the subscription with the data:

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-broadcaster-subscriptions
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#check-user-subscription

    This makes it impossible to compute things such as subscription length dynamically as the only way to get subscriptions dates now is to be listening for the subscription event itself when it occurs. The V5 version of these APIs have this data point in them:

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels#get-channel-subscribers
    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/v5/reference/channels#check-channel-subscription-by-user

  17. I would like to see more than one user per schedule API query. Similar to querying the streams and channel information from up to 100 users. That would be of great help with the rate limits.

    Best greetings ^^

  18. The new prediction/polls APIs are very welcome, but it would be useful to know who started/locked/ended a prediction.

    Maybe to display info to chatters who to talk to about the rules of the current prediction or maybe to log potential abuse of predictions.

  19. For example when I request emote set 300548756 (The rpg limited time emotes) It only returns RPGAyaya when I as a user possess all of that emote set. other limited time sets do the same with some not returning any emotes at all.

  20. With the addition of animated emotes there is no way to tell from the emote API responses of GetChannelEmotes and GetEmoteSets if a new emote ( id starting with "emotesv2_") is a normal emote or an animated gif emote without downloading it and checking the file contents.

    Would be nice to have either a "format" field that tells you "png" or "gif", or at least a "is_animated" bool field for each emote.

    Use cases: Whenever you wanna show emote stats or emote info for a channel (like in a chat clients or stats website or emote panel) you often wanna…
