  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. To easy to register fake emails on here and harass someone defiantly need to not make it easy to create multiple user accounts on here which ultimately will lead to malicious activities.

  4. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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…

  11. I currently get regular spam from this site as people sign up using my email address, and I have to delete the accounts myself.

    It would be better (and standard practice) to force the email verification to be a mandatory part of account creation.

  14. 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. 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…

  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. 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
