  1. As it currently stands, Twitch Partners are not allowed to request Partner Support to change their alias to anything below 4 characters. I know that I along with multiple other Twitch Partners have ran into this issue when contacting Twitch support to try and remove extra numbers or special characters from our names. It has also been equally as frustrating for me and these other Twitch Partners when these name changes are continuing to be offered to the biggest Partners on the platform, but smaller or mid sized Partners are still rejected when they ask.

    My suggestion is to allow…

  2. 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…

  3. When Twitch Support is asked about the availability of an inactive display name, their response is always something about names being "recycled" eventually and to just keep trying. However, these names are given to new partners who ask for them immediately. I tried to get a particular name for YEARS, and kept getting the same response, but a new partner asked for it and it was handed over to her within seconds.

    Suggestion: Be honest with the people who pay the bills.

  4. Some people may have old accounts that they had forgotten about. In my case. I have one without the numbers at the end of the name. I recently was able to log into it and would like to have the ability to swap the name with my current account.

    If someone can prove they own both of the accounts, it would be nice for some way to swap them. If I change the name of the account with no numbers, there's no guarantee I'll be able to be the one to snag it whenever it gets freed up and that…

  5. I've been wanting to change my display name for a while, but every time I tried it gave me a not very specific error for it. Turns out, you can't have the same display name as other people. Why? This is counterproducent for those people who just set their given or family name as display names, so those who wish to put their name as "Tanaka" have to somehow change the spelling of their name to be allowed to have it? That doesn't make sense, the display name doesn't even overrid the normal username, so why do they both have…

  6. 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…

  7. I feel that it would be a good idea to make it possible to find someone with your desired username, in the case that you want to remove the numbers from your name, ex. (JohnnyCowboy_21 turning into JohnnyCowboy)

  8. If you change your username, you should have the option for the old username to become available for grabs instantly, instead of REQUIRING a 6 month wait for the name to become available. It can be useful if you need to swap usernames on accounts, so you don't have to wait half a YEAR just to do so.

  9. Many usernames are banned on Twitch for no known reason. After a while, those suspended accounts should be released so that content creators can get a chance to use them for their branding. For example, the username "fairy" was made partner before it was banned. It would be very nice if a content creator could have that name.

  10. It is kinda irritating when someone already has the user name you want to use and there is no way to facilitate asking or paying paying for a name trade. I am sure a lot of people that do not actually stream and only watch twitch would not mind too much to give up their name if someone asked for it and even fewer if they where compensated for it. Even those that do stream could probably even give up their name if someone payed enough for them, because names can be important for recognition and people are willing to…

  11. How about easing up on the name calling bans, let me play David Allen Coe like the blacks play the word. The word "***," like all words, is simply an instrument with which to convey ideas. No word is inherently evil. In fact, black artists have been putting the word to righteous use for years. I won't put another penny into twitch if the ban of whites using *** and allowing blacks using ****** to continue.

  13. having the possibility to have 1-3 nicknames, that are variations/plays upon your normal username, fx org name * 50% + x new stuff, ei, my screen name is skunkelmusen, and some have taken to calling me skunkiepie, skunster etc, would be nice if they were highlighted for me as well

  17. Before suspending users with inappropriate names, could you instead give them a 5 day warning to change? The suspension without warning seems very unnecessary if a person has had it for the longest time and suddenly got suspended. I believe lots of people could stop clogging suspension appeals with this, especially those who aren't genuine trouble makers with their names and people deserve second chances! Especially with usernames, my friend got suspended and there was no clear heads up on their suspension. They were watching a stream and bop! Banned without warning and for having an average name that never…

  18. I have wanted to change my twitch username multiple times, but I have decided against it because I do not want to have to go through the process of reintroducing myself to everyone that I have met previously in chats and talk them through me changing username. I am a moderator in multiple channels, and it would create a cluster if I completely changed my username. I think there should be an option when you change your username to TEMPORARILY put your old username in parenthesis next to your new username to avoid this issue. (An example of what I…

  19. Pretty much as described. I had someone enquire about this because they had one account with their current on stream name and while looking to find their rebranded name they registered it on a their stream testing account.

    Since both account are registered to the same email address it would be nice to "switch" the usernames when the rebrand goes live. As it stands now they are stuck waiting while the name goes back into the name pool and hoping the name is freed up for the "main" account.

    (and no one takes it during this time...)

    Rebranding can take…
