  1. I renamed my user from kozakagamer to kozaka. Everything went fine, just the old https://www.twitch.tv/kozakagamer is not working now (Time machine missing :) ).

    So, my idea is, that maybe it would be good, that in case rename an url should be show which points to the new page or the user should be redirected to the new. Maybe just for 60 days?

    This way, if an viewer comes over fore example a stored url, and want to find me, he could easily find my channel without any guessing what the new name would be.

    Thanx

  3. According to several metrics and articles, The demographic that is drawn to the site are users between the ages of 18-45, ie. adults. My recommendation is to raise the limit to 18 years old for signing up and streaming to the platform.

    THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDATION TO MAKE TWITCH AN ADULT SITE.

    The point is to curb child predators from creeping on the site and attempting to groom young children. In addition to this change, A disclaimer should be posted on for each user sign up and requires confirmation via email to verify that the disclaimer has been read.

  4. If someone goes by NameWasTaken and gets the emote prefix "name1" then changes their name to, say, NameVT, dont 'offer' the 'randomly generated' Prefix of "name1" to them again if they already have it.

  5. 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…

  6. Seria bom uma opção de ver os aparelhos conectados e os seus detalhes: como ip, marca, localização e o modo que está conectado ou que tentou entrar, também tendo como renomear o nome do aparelho, assim como tem na Google, eu peço isso, pois invadiram a minha conta e só percebi isso 2 meses depois, e se tivesse isso, não teria rolado essa invasão e sim, eu olhei os e-mails e não tinha 1 indicando que entraram na minha conta

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. Create a better way for old people using the app or have a human suport to help new users on how to create a new account. 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 . I guess a that a phone number should be get automaticaly when on a form starts to be filled and after it be sent, Twitch could sent login infos in an SMS with login infos or a button or a link to do the first login where user can fill other options…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Just fix it. I dont want to keep receiving emails about some streamer I don't even watch. heres the email unsubscribe link that Ive selected at least three times now:

    https://www.twitch.tv/email-unsubscribe?block=channel&channel_id=left_blank&email_id=left_blank&user_id=left_blank&validating_hash=left_blank

    left sensitive tokens blank.

  16. when you look in the privacy settings in your account, you can see the full phone number for your 2FA. Can this be blocked? When changing and entering into privacy, pw and 2fa is enabled again. amazon does this and I feel that they are taking our privacy seriously. 2FA just doesn't do it anymore, esp if you can bypass it the first time

  17. In Italy they have created a Public Digital Identity System (SPID), for any request within the city or province you must have this Digital Identity.

    Twitch's problem, I would say the biggest, are threats and insults, a very important solution is the BAN but it's not enough!

    We must note that there is too much chaos on the web!

    By applying the SPID system at least in Italy, Twich "Beta" could test this reality and then maybe expand it in Europe and maybe even around the world!

    With digital identity we will no longer have insults,…

  19. I have a shared Twitch channel and we upload Highlights to 2 different YouTube channels. It would be incredibly helpful if we could connect a Twitch channel to 2 YouTube accounts at the same time.
    At the moment, the only thing we can do is manually connect and disconnect both YouTube channels every time we want to upload a Highlight to the other account.
    Thank you in advance and keep up the good work!

  20. I have a few ideas that I think would be great changes to the username system. To start off I believe the "4 letter" name rule is far outdated I don't see an issue with 3 letter names being allowed, some user already have 3 letter names (I.E. XqC, ABE,Pat,Red) so it's 100% doable. Another change that I think would be great is to allow more characters/symbols in names, such as ( ' - ~ / \ | ) ETC. Including symbols diacritics (e.g. ú, ÿ, ç, å, ē) should also be allowed in usernames, they're already used in other…
