  1. 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…

  4. 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.

  6. Please submit twitch.tv for HSTS preloading (https://hstspreload.org/?domain=twitch.tv). This will help force the users' browsers to connect to the website using only HTTPS, even if they have never visited the website before.

  7. I would like for an option within security to log out of the application every time it is closed. I don't like keeping things logged in and forget to logout from time to time.

  8. 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…

  9. My account was "automatically flagged and temporarily blocked to prevent abuse" and now I am unable to chat.

    I had not interacted with the channel except to click the follow button prior to this block being applied. To be clear - there were absolutely no messages sent by me to this channel prior to this block happening. I have since sent an unban request, and am still waiting for a response.

    My account now displays "Banned on Linked Account" and searching tells me that 'If a user is seeing this message, they have had another account with their phone/email banned…

  11. What would be nice is an actual working system or way to submit bug reports without being re directed here by Twitch Staff. Or an option to make a bug report when making a Support Ticket.

    Because, even though it says "Help / Report a Bug". There is NO options to select in regards to bug reports.
    https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/how-to-provide-feedback

    Here is my bug report too just in case, (Changing password)

    - United States
    - Vivaldi (Chrome based)
    - Error message = "That password is to easy to guess"

  13. Many sites and developers will request ridiculously over-broad permissions when establishing a new connection. At present this can be worked around by altering the URL to trim excessive permissions, but is a hassle for sites that require re-authing every few days.

    Adding checkboxes to each of the requested permissions to allow account-holders to remove over-requested (data-scraping) permissions and unsafe permissions would alleviate this greatly.

    The only risk would be the third-party site erroring if an actually-used permission is deselected by the end user, while enhancing privacy prevention and user control to slap away over-invasive marketing data collection attempts.

I have did a tutorial it my self that can be accessed here http://djrudphd.com.br/entrartwitch/ but I gess that is not enough .

  15. I'm having this problem. This premium content is not available in your region. (Error #1). I never had it before, I changed to a new house and I cant watch my streamer anymore, I'm even subscribed to him. This makes me sad.

  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. So this is my MAIN computing device, this is MY computer, why can I only sign on for 30 days on MY computer? There should be a check list for "permanent" and "temporary" instead of "30-days" because that's just kind of ignorant. I don't want to have to clear myself every 30 days just because I want 2-step verification, I just don't want any OTHER computers to sign in as me and want to be notified when any OTHER devices try to sign in as me, not me, on my laptop, signing in every freaking month because you can't keep…

  19. It would be nice if twitch loosened restrictions on usernames since so many are taken and they don't seem to get freed up.

    For example allowing usernames starting with symbols (_username), as well as adding more symbols for use, such as '-', '/', '.', '|', '~', and other characters.
