  1. I short while ago, I have changed my username from “PeenutShow” to “Peenut__” (three underlines).
    I was happy with the way the new username would be displayed so I went ahead with the change.

    Unfortunately, the username does NOT get displayed the way it showed it would. The three “underlines” get displayed with gaps in between like this: “Peenut _ _ _ ”
    To me, this is a big deal because those gaps make the username look silly and absolutely not to my liking.
    I would have NEVER changed the name if your system had shown the future…

  2. I understand Twitch has recently allowed people to use other apps for means of authentication, but please allow users to use U2F/FIDO authentication, this is not only more secure but also very reliable. Having a U2F as primary with a TOTP as a backup is in my opinion the best method of security, given that Affiliate/Partner accounts hold alot of personal Tax information, I feel this fits more as it's such sensitive information.

  4. I can't tell you how long I've been trying to find how to change your name on here its honestly been really frustrating. I use twitch currently as a way to watch streamers as I don't stream myself.
    I made this account some time ago with an old name i no longer associate with. So I looked it up to see if its possible and I read that it is and how to do it.
    So I followed the steps on each site meticulously but to no avail was I ever able to even get to an option of changing…

  5. First of all, good job on implementing non-Authy, non-SMS 2FA!

    That being said, there's still a major hole in your 2FA implementation, and that's requiring a user to set up SMS authentication before they can set up other forms of 2FA. Unless I've missed something huge, whenever I try to set up 2FA on Twitch, I get directed to put in my phone number first. There's no prompt I can use to skip this step.

    This is completely counter to how a lot of other sites do 2FA, where SMS authentication is an option, not a requirement. You can completely…

  6. Display the exact amount of days left until one is able to change their Username in the Profile Settings.

    Currently it just displays the amount roughly rounded up and inaccurate, e.g "You may update your username again in 1 month"

  9. I've accidentally changed my username. And I didn't even click on "Save Changes". And normally say you changed your password, e-mail, etc. for that account. You would have an e-mail sent for authorization to make sure it was you. So if you accidentally or someone changed your Twitch username. Instead of waiting 6 months to re-claim your Twitch username. You would get an email to authorize that change to the username.

  12. When an account gets banned it doesn't have access to the connections pannel anymore and so we can't unlink accounts (such as Steam, RiotGames or Epic Games accounts etc.) from it.

  13. I want to cancel my account. I don't like your website. Setting up a YouTube channel took no time and it's easy to use heck even BandLab is better than this.
    You don't even show an option in preferences to allow users to cancel their accounts. You can not even upload content on here like YouTube.

  14. I feel like Twitch sends out emails with an excessive amount of HTML in them. HTML emails are fine, but let's all try to keep things to a sane level.

  18. Resolve the follow issue, let us have the information about time following peoples even if whe don't follow they anymore, like a "history" about that.

    It's frustrating lost that information after some miss click or bug.

  19. It'd be great if leaderboards weren't affect by users changing their username. If users were assigned a token upon signup that was used for leaderboards etc, so that username changes weren't to be affected, but reflected the information based on the token not the name. Which would then update the user info as well.
