Clips API should let Broadcasters see info of deleted Clips
The Get Clips API should include information of all deleted clips matching the current clips request too when used with a proposed deleted=true parameter. Limited to only the broadcaster themselves and maybe behind some appropriate scope too.
Goal: detecting malicious, weird and creepy clipping behavior from people making clips, downloading them, and instantly deleting them which is a very common pattern that's currently almost impossible to detect for streamers.
Sometimes streamers will accidentally show something they didn't mean to for a second, or say something that can be taken out of context, and some people are just weird and clip certain normal actions of a streamer over and over again.
It has turned out to be a very common pattern for some malicious viewers to clip those things and then immediately delete the clips after downloading the file locally to be able to save clips of it without the streamer or mods ever being aware of it.
Having made a custom tool to automatically constantly monitor new clips (including clip deletions) of some channels I moderate has enabled identifying many viewers showing clearly malicious, weird, creepy and generally bannable and reportable behavior that would otherwise have been gone completely unnoticed to the streamer and mods without such a tool.
This appears to happen on almost any remotely big channel however generally goes completely unnoticed as it is almost undetectable without such a monitoring tool.
Examples include instances of people making literally dozens of clips of a streamer getting up from their chair, or stretching, or many people clipping when a streamer accidentally leaks some info on stream for a second, and then all deleting the clips instantly.
With the current Clips API limitations it's nearly impossible to make such a tracking tool reliable, and it requires a lot of unnecessarily frequent API calls to even get moderately good coverage. This would all not be necessary in the first place if broadcasters were be able retrieve all info of deleted clips from their channels and is essential to identifying malicious clipping behavior and should be available to the broadcaster.
*Bump*? This is a great idea, especially if someone tries to clip to get someone's address.
