  2. New accounts cannot because created with the word "grape" in it and will automatically trigger a red flag. I know this is nonsensical for some, but my name online has always had the word "Grape" in it because it is my last name. I'd love to create an account with the word "grape" in it. But apparently it's too close to word word "Rape" so it automatically won't let you put the word in your name.

  4. Allot of different websites offer this feature, but, how about making it so that if you somehow in someway can't login to your account after reporting missing credentials, it will offer you the chance to send the email about (e.g resetting your password) to an email that you can access.

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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

  8. EN: I want every change to contract to be sent to the email address associated with the Affiliate / Partner account. For example, when an e-mail or other data has been changed in the contract, information should be sent to the e-mail assigned to the account. Streamers are losing money through data leaks, as I am because someone has changed my email to make a payment and Twitch is not willing to do anything about it or give me my money back.

  9. 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.

  10. a very useful feature for twitch, cince it has a follower cap of 2000, would be a section for the people we follow and watch. while we have a "notifications" section for who we want to get notified of, we dont have a section that easily allows us to unfollow inactive channels we no longer watch. something as simple as having it in the same format of the notifications but just replace the on/off slider with a "follow/unfollow" button. making it easier to manage and clear out all the people who dont stream anymore or we dont watch as often.

  11. Hi, I just contacted PayPal about a fraud against me.I had contacted this site for help with affiliate status and receiving donations. Which would be very useful to me given my social status.

    Can't I have affiliate status given the need and collaboration?

  13. Right now i can't chat on any twitch cause its asking for me to enter a mobile number. and despite my repeated attempts at getting SOMEONE to disable this stupid targeting on my accounts, nobody is listening. And no I'm not giving my mobile number. u have my verified email and i shouldn't be scrutinized to enter a mobile number. If you need mobile numbers on my account then i'm not using twitch period. and unsubbing from everything and moving to another platform. the fact you single me out for using twitch-tools.de and a vpn shows you don't care about…

  16. 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.

  19. When you sign up for a new account you are asked to input a one time code through email.

    Please implement the One Time Code for ALL, EXISITING & NEW accounts when logging in.

    Context: I do not have an active cell phone, I live in an area that does not receive SMS Text for the login code, therefore I can't use Authy either. I've been trying to log back into my account for about 3 weeks at this point with help from friends, but to no avail it didn't work.

    Conclusion: Please implement this into the login system, it…

  20. The iOS app has this annoying habit of logging me out of the app seemingly at random, and with no input at all on any other device. This is very disruptive as I have 2FA set up on my account, and to log in I have to both provide my password and an auth code that may/may not be easy to get to depending on whether I have my auth code generator to hand.

    The iOS app never used to randomly log out, so the question is why is it doing it now. I'm aware of the "30 days" feature…
