  1. This is a kind of bug report.
    When I connect from Discord to Twitch,
    Discord didn't appear in Twitch connections page.
    https://www.twitch.tv/settings/connections
    As a result, when I'm streaming in twitch, my Discord status doesn't turn into "Streaming".
    Of course I enabled streamer mode.

    This issue seems to occur for seven years.
    https://www.reddit.com/r/discordapp/comments/4jv325/status_doesnt_turn_purple_when_streaming/
    One of my friends also failed, but the others succeeded.

    I solved this by repeating reconnecting until Discord appeared in Twitch connections page.

    The connection processing should be reviewed.
    This issue is not from Discord to Twitch, but from Twitch to Discord.

  2. I keep receiving notifications regarding my cookies, both in OBS, and the web-browsers Firefox and Vivaldi (Chromium).

    Every time when the web-browser or OBS is restarted the cookies needs to be accepted once again!

    How do I get the cookie notifications to stop on Twitch after accepting them, just as cookies works on other websites?

  3. 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…

  4. 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 ****.

  5. 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.

  7. 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

  8. "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.

  9. I emailed support a while ago and was told that developers are working on the idea. I was hoping if we could get support on reinstating follow dates that were accidently lost before unfollow confirmation was implemented. Many people accidently unfollowed accounts or lost following so lost their follow dates and by providing proof people should be able to reinstate these dates. Thanks!

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. I forgot the password to my account and didn't receive a single password reset email. I tried to verify my account through customer support but they said they couldn't verify it. Being as I don't have any of the information they request linked to my account other than my email it's a bit redundant. If there was a way of verifying via linked account such as a PlayStation Network account, or via a Discord account, it could make the whole process much easier.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Please submit twitch.tv for HSTS preloading (https://hstspreload.org/?domain=twitch.tv). This will help force the users' browsers to connect to the website using only HTTPS, even if they have never visited the website before.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. Ask your programmer that runs the IFTTT twitch department to create an applet that will "post to facebook and or twitter when a Streamer starts streaming to a community you created."

    This applet would become a very powerful tool for community organizers/administrators to promote their communities streamers! thus bringing in more viewers to the twitch platform and streamer while easing our work load!

  20. What would be nice is a notification with a sound, like skype when you receive a message and also when you have the chat open and someone write something it tells you

    When someone sends a message, seeing (1) so you dont have to leave the twitch page open as it's what i have to do if i wanna see who wrote something ! So my idea

    In other words to simplify when someone in my friend sends me a message i dont see (1) and a sound that someone sent me a message would be nice !
