  1. It's possible for a third-party app to query a user's followed channels, but not followed categories. This is a very useful tool for creating alternate views to a follow list

    Use-case: Raid recommendation tool - it compares channel stats to your own and recommends those that are most similar, and also those you haven't recently raided. To do this, it needs to start with a list of everyone you follow who's live, and then does further research.

  2. 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)…

  3. would love a follow button that works like Twitter Follow/Tweet button. To avoid the need to oAuth-loop it and users would prefer that rather than granting access to their account for developers to throw a follow at any channel.

  4. 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.

  5. Summary:
    A cheer message can be multiple cheers in a single payload. Providing the individual cheer components in an int array would provide data that is not currently there. Emote placement, while also desired, would be still more work than should be necessary at first glance to determine the bits used.

    Example: **
    BarryCarlyon PogChamp100 PogChamp100 Party100 Wow Soaryn is Frustrated!
    This would result in **"bits": 300;
    however this is incomplete and would be desired to also have something like "bits_used": [100,100,100]

    Reasoning:
    While again, emote placement would help, determining the bits used from it would be extra and redundant…

  6. If an extension is updated, there generally isn't a good way to tell streamers about it.

    It would be useful if an extension can push a notification to the bell/notification list, like how drops work/notify.

    And/or find a way to present an update notification to the main Twitch dashboard.

  8. 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)

  9. 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)

  10. The new mod view is great and all.

    But it would be useful if extensions can add items to the Automod queue for moderators to moderate user submitted content (as per the new #7 guidelines for extension content moderation).

    And said item have webhook/EBS powered accept/reject buttons or similar

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  15. We have bans/timeouts on the bans topic.

    We don't have a feed for message deletions.
    Or whom triggered a raid
    Or whom triggered a host.

    Some channels have a need to track/log all moderator actions for later reconcilliation, not just bans.

    (Or tracking down a rogue mod doing hosts when they shouldn't for example)

  16. Extend

    https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-eventsub-subscriptions

    To add a optional query string param of id to allow developers to lookup a single subscription.

    If a developer stores the ID's when the subs are created, they may want to spot check a single ID's status, or check the settings of it, without having to paginate or manually filter the results returned when using on of the currently offered filter options

  17. A topic to account for emotes being added or remove from "global" or a specific ChannelID would be useful.

    It's hamstrung by

    https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/39547780-emotes-by-channelid

    As we can't catch up

    There are a number of Twitch Extensions that would be good to know if/when emotes change. (HypeMeter for example)

    And Developers of single channel bots will need to know so they can add/remove emotes from any channel commands.

    It's also useful for custom channel tooling to keep lists up to date in custom tooling if/when https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310213-developers/suggestions/41137957-upload-emotes is actioned as well

    This includes but is not limited to

    • regular subscriber emotes
    • bits/cheer emotes

  19. 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
    }]
    }

  20. 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.
