  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. Log IPs of all attempted logins to an account. This way we can report suspicious behavior to you and to authorities/banks when it occurs.

    Reason being, I have received multiple 2FA codes on my phone and have no way to report these unauthorized attempts to access my account. I have changed my PW and am still receiving these codes. I have ran two separate virus checkers and come back empty from both.

    Thank you.

  9. If someone has my email, phone number (optional of course), twitter username, instagram username, snapchat, facebook, youtube, or discord id etc, I would love for these people to be able to find my twitch profile with in the twitch eco system and not have to leave the site to try to find me
    Every other social profile I've had in my life time, has had an option to "import" contacts, I would love to see this be a native feature on twitch to help organic discoverability.

  12. I would really like to see a Face ID option to login to your Twitch Account through the app on iOS devices & the option to enable or disable Face ID for extra security.

  13. It would be cool if you could swap usernames. I for example own a cleaner name than the one I am on right now but I gained like 11K followers on the one with the less cool name. (I wasnt bothered by it at the time but I am now getting to a size where I wanna take it more serious and the cleaner name would be sick). ALSO it would be cool if you could contact someone with the name you want and ask him/her if he/she would be willing to give his/her username to you.

  17. I tried to reach twitch support, I couldn't find it, but it would be good if you fix the phone verification system as soon as possible because I previously logged into my account with my phone, then I closed that account and opened another account. I want to verify the account, but I can't, please help, I'm starting to broadcast slowly. love

  19. There are currently very many suggestions related to issues with password rules. The purpose of this suggestion is to supersede those complaints by recommending that Twitch specifically adopt the recommendations in NIST Special Publication 800-63B https://pages.nist.gov/800-63-3/sp800-63b.html.

    The purpose is to not have any rules that make users jump through hoops without improving security. Specific recommendations include:
    * Passwords should be at least 8 characters long and there should be no arbitrary maximum length (at least up to 64 characters)
    * There should be no composition rules (e.g., rules like "must include a mix of letters and numbers")
    * Ban…

  20. 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…
