  1. I would appreciate the option to see open sessions of my Twitch account and close them manually if they are no longer necessary or desired.

    This would be for security and peace of mind that no one else is purposing Twitch accounts without a user's permission and potentially causing issues in various chats.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

  3. To let streamers moderate notification feature which will push when the game started. 50%+ games have long queues. Pretty sure this will be useful for both counterparties. Basicaly viewers leave when streamers searching for the game.

  4. When you select the "Prime gaming loot" button to the left of the notifications button, you are shown a list of notification of the possible loot to claim and for most you are able to clear these by clicking on the 'x' and it disappears but if it's the last of these notifications clicking the 'x' does nothing.

    This was seen on chrome, ever since that tab's been updated to show the "All", "Free Games" and "Ending Soon" tabs

  5. I'd like to comment on something that I think it would be nice to have when changing your username, and what happens is that when you change your name the count on the number of subs you have gifted is reset and it's split in two different usernames (your old one and the new one). And, for instance, in the board of leadership of stream elements which is shown in some channels doesn't appear the total of subs concerning your account, and it's split in two as I said before. So, I think you could do something about that because…

  6. Provide a means of alerting users of notable and significant changes to Twitch as these changes go live. Something similar is in place for creators and moderators in the form of the "What's New & Feedback" icon, but this does not always cover every change. People should be alerted to all changes, even cosmetic ones, especially if key features would be affected.

    In particular, it would be good if there could be an option to sign up for a mailing list for announcements made via the Twitch blog as well as updates to the Community Guidelines. This would be especially…

  8. I have recently noticed that the section for users blocked by the streamer in the 'Privacy' subsection does not work very well, as it does not show all blocked users correctly, sometimes some disappear or simply do not appear in the list. My proposal is therefore to improve this section of blocked users by expanding it and also showing more information about these users, especially by indicating when they change nicknames, trying to confuse things even more, and perhaps a drop-down menu that is even more practical, so that it is easier to manage all blocked users. I also recommend…

  9. I am in agreement with people requesting a reduction on the time before you're able to change your username. Even if i have to wait 2 months before i can change it to something else, I've tested out my current username, as of posting this, and have discovered i hate it. If you could revert a user name change in the first 24 hours at least, even if i had to wait 2 months until i try again, it would solve a lot of people's problems with it. I also hate how there's no way of testing out a username…

  10. This is hateful you are disrespecting us Affiliates, and Partners, we should get the rights since of sharing exclusive VODs (exclusivity rule) with Twitch, and are restricted for 24 hrs to reupload (reuploading someone who is going live often is really difficult), I mean you are already getting huge splits of revenue by us, then you disrespect even our names in cases if someone of us dies?
    Recycle your customers which are non-affiliates, our usernames stay our usernames as so in Steam, and YouTube, just because some ducks disrespect us eagles it does not mean you need to listen to…

  12. Twitch currently does too little to preserve the Digital Legacies of creators who have passed away.

    Companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, etc. at least offer ways to assign a contact who will have access to your account if you pass away (without any long legal procedures).

    Case example: with the upcoming changes to the Rerun feature, editors will no longer have access to it. This means only the streamer or someone who has access to the stream key can start a VOD Rerun. In order for Reckful's community to stay connected and keep supporting each other on Twitch, these changes…

  13. Seria bom uma opção de ver os aparelhos conectados e os seus detalhes: como ip, marca, localização e o modo que está conectado ou que tentou entrar, também tendo como renomear o nome do aparelho, assim como tem na Google, eu peço isso, pois invadiram a minha conta e só percebi isso 2 meses depois, e se tivesse isso, não teria rolado essa invasão e sim, eu olhei os e-mails e não tinha 1 indicando que entraram na minha conta

  15. Apps on Windows 10/11 use Web Authentication Broker (special built-in UWP app) in order to securely authenticate a user.
    Unfortunately it still uses IE based web view. Causing this
    https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/2365592/145680353-6e0862a1-5251-4ee5-bf79-803a8e6f5a56.png
    You must add a special check and allow to open auth view in IE.

    How to reproduce
    Install https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9NN46KBBHL2W
    Try to authenticate

    Expected behavior
    Twitch is opened in Web Authentication Broker and allows to authenticate

  16. The recycle program needs a massive overhaul.

    There are far to many people waiting on unused usernames that are not released in a timely fashion.

    I have been watching two names for years now. One is simply completely inactive with zero information on the profile and has never followed anyone, for years. That account also has never responded to private messages to even suggest someone logged in. **** I'd buy their account name from them if there was anyway I could contact them.

    The other has the "Unless you have a time machine." message and may be an old twitch…

  17. There should be something such as a page where people can search a username they want in order to check when it will be available.

    This is especially necessary because previously used parter usernames are never available again, but as far as anyone is aware, there is no archive or list of those “never available” usernames.

    Wanting a username that isn’t being used and trying to change to that username every day without knowing how long you will have to keep trying for it is absolutely exhausting and shouldn’t be something creators have to go through. Make it easier to…

  18. When linking your twitch to your discord, it auto gives subs to subs that have linked their account, now what would be good is that if this also could happen with VIP's!

  20. My YouTube channel was unlink, but it was working completely fine before. I didn't log out or anything of the sort. It was just working the other day, and only stopped working today. IDK what happened, but now I can't relink it. It only shows up with "Make sure the email you used for Twitch is the same as your google account." If anyone has any ideas or know how to fix it, pls let me know.
