  1. Adding the ability to add an apostrophe to display names.
    The name I use online is [Kori'to] but when I have it on Twitch, I can't use an apostrophe in either my username or display name so it looks like [Korito]. Is it possible to allow for adding apostrophes in either the username or display name? That would be a nice addition.

  3. It would be nice to receive a pop up notification when I watch in full screen that other streamer I follow started his stream.

  4. Many people did it without thinking and while I agree they should have did some research before setting it to something stupid for it to look cool for like 3 seconds. I would just make a new account honestly if it didnt mean losing so many stuff gained over the years of streaming and chatting and watching people.

  5. The password system in twitch has me put beyond disbelief. I have truly never experienced a more horrific security protocol; it is almost comparable to the password game, which was created as a joke. I would like to suggest some changes.

    1. scrap the existing system, unfixable.
    2. make a three character minimum; this is all that is necessary for actual security increase. People who take their privacy seriously will act accordingly.
    3. Allow special characters. It is genuinely baffling that as a company you made the conscious decision to decrease the amount of usable characters in a password.
    4. Get rid of whatever…

  6. I would like to suggest changing the username length policy to allow usernames that are 3 or more characters long instead of having a 4-character minimum. This already exists for some channels, like AOC, but it would be great if it became something that other people could do, too.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, and have a great day!

  7. To help users manage security for their accounts: I propose the Settings > Connections page should list the specific Permissions (or OAuth scopes granted) For each account connection.

    And there should be an "Edit" button. Instead of completely revoking a connection: We should have the option to Remove or withold any granted permissions/scopes of a connected app that we want On this menu.

    There should also be some options to block/remove some of the requested permissions on the page at the time when initially authorizing a connection.

    I propose that the Highest-risk permissions which Apps can request be made so…

  8. If my login is successfull (option: with the first try) and i have done it via 2factor auth, then don´t send a successfull login attempt email. Make this selectable in the profile (send email/ dont´send/ send after x unsuccessfull tries)

  9. When using Chrome and clicking on the Prime Loot menu, you can use the X to close out each individual item under the "For You, Games, Ending Soon" categories, but you can never clear the list completely. Whatever item is the last item in the list, it stays there and you can't close it...ever. This is really annoying to us OCD-ers. Please allow us to close out all the items and display an all caught up message just like the notifications area.

  10. Can't unfollow the Resident Evil 4 (2005) category. Clicking on it directs you to the Resident Evil 4 Remake category which you can follow/unfollow separately.

  11. When creating my account, I was stuck on what username to use. Twitch showed a message during the sign up which said something like "Don't worry, you can change this later."

    So I thought, ok I'll just put anything for now, and once my account is set up, I can change it to something else.

    But after I finished making my account, I went to the settings to find I had to wait 2 months before I could change my name!

    I feel like I was provided some false reassurance and now I'm stuck for 2 months with a name…

  12. I'm tired of twitch tv sending a verification code to my email. I use twitch on my cell phone for cromecast. Then when I watch twitch on the computer, I have to verify the code and go to g-mail to look at the ****** number series and verify. This verification is constant and feels like ****.

  13. We should be able to put spaces in usernames. Especially for people like me in a gaming clan that i cofounded with my friend (GXR), its super important.

  14. Olá,
    Porque não usar Token por email?
    @Twitch poderiam por uma nova opção na parte de Token que poderia ser assim...
    Selecionar Token por email...
    Ou
    Selecionar Token por número de telemóvel...
    Acho que seria melhor quando o "Streamer/Usuário" fosse fazer login da sua respectiva conta...
    Espero que quem esteja a ler isto vote :3

  15. "It looks like you're trying to login from a new device or location". No it's actually not, I'm trying to log in from a browser that you currently have over 50 cookies stored on from the same location.

    I don't delete them from twitch due to this very hassle, yet you still send me a verification code every time I try to use the site.

  16. This may require a bigger team of course to implement, but I just signed up for a freelance website and the sign up process, is actually an application to use this site. I was required to verify my identity via uploading a photo of my ID AND a verifying statement such as a paystub, utility bill, etc. And also address verification (or at least a mailing/billing address) which should be added to the account anyways since payment information is stored for subscriptions.

    I know that twitch has a younger population so that may not work, but it may also be…

  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. 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. Notifications right now hijack already opened twitch tabs instead of opening a new one. This is annoying especially if i'm watching a VoD. I would like for there to either be an option, or for it to just open a new tab like Youtube does it.

  20. 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
