  2. The idea is that we would have the ability to create “child” accounts that must be linked to a “normal” account where we could set it so that we have to manually approve content creators for them to watch. Unapproved content creators would not even show up in the home page feed.
    Included in the child account management should also be the ability to view a report of what they watched, for how long, and when.
    Of course child safe ads would have to be used.

    On twitches end, this would be a good gateway to getting the next generation…

  3. There has been so much infighting about children on the platform and it needs to be addressed. Under the Terms of Service (ToS) The minimum age requirement to view and create an account on Twitch is 13.

    This is becoming problematic on the site as streamers are being told to make their content suitable for an audience they don't cater to, and there has been an increase in trolling streamers.

    It's not a cure-all but I strongly believe that increasing the minimum age requirement from 13 to 16 will help in resolving this. It will (hopefully) signal to parents that…

  5. My idea is to add a bind game rating from various competitive games to the account on twitch (the user chooses his own main game, only on it will be displayed icon). Let’s take Dota 2 game as an example, a person links his account to twitch and in chat (when he sends a message) a small icon of rank (let’s say titan) appears to the left of his nickname

  7. Users should be restricted to one Username.

    If you require 2 accounts your already suspect.

    Saying you need a personal and a professional account is countermount to the reason there is millions of accounts. however, If you need a way for someone to have a professional and personal username allow for just that TwitchPro and TwitchViewer accounts.

    Alot of social media sites use a one account or rather 1 username rule.

    There is no good reason for needing a second account registered to the same email address. This stops users from being banned and creating a new username to go…

  9. A large number of bot accounts have been following me to an account of a friend of mine and then deactivating the account.
    They only activate accounts when they are harassing me.
    When I try to report them, I can't even report them because they are already disabled.
    Blocking and banning cannot be done from the screen because they are disabled as well.
    Account deactivation is being abused.
    In addition, accounts that have been followed and deactivated cannot be retrieved in the Twitch API's "Channels/Followers", so it is not easy to take action against the account in question.
    We would…

  10. When a user makes an account under Settings > Security and Privacy Have the user request for age verification to few streamers that are marked as 18+ this will lower the chanses of having a viewer under the age of 17. not saying it will stop it 100% but it will help ID the users that are over the age of 18.

Cuando te creas una cuenta de twitch tienes un nombre de usuario claro?, bien cuando pasa un tiempo ya sea 1 año o dos años te olvidas tu nombre de twitch, es posiblemente que pienses que nunca has tenido cuenta y te creas con otro nombre de usuario al mismo correo que lo creaste, entonces aqui va el problema cuando descubres dos nombres de usuario en tu cuenta, quieres restablecer la principal y no te envian ningun tipo de link de reestablecimiento de correo, me gustaria recibir alguna respuesta por parte de soporte y que no sea un robot diciendo…

  16. The password requirements are truly insane for the average user. I shouldn't need a password so secure that it'd take years to *****, I need a password I can remember. This is a streaming site.

    If a streamer wants a super secure password, they can make that themselves, but imposing insane guidelines on people who just want to follow a few people is super annoying.

  17. 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...

  19. 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…

  20. With the ongoing outbreaks of follow and hate bots "raids", the creation of multiple accounts is simply too easy to abuse on the platform. Creating an account on Twitch does not require an authentic email address before using its services: watching content, following a streamer, sending messages in streamers chats, modifying the account details, etc.

    Many streamers are being harrassed by bots and "IP Grabbers" by:
    - Mass following streamers with inappropriate names and account details;
    - Mass spamming chats with obscene languages and characters (ex: racism, homophobia, transphobia, nazi, etc..);
    - Having extensions on their user profile which allows…
