  1. I use an adblocker not because I don't want to see ads. I use an adblocker because I don't want to support your scummy platform. I'm not disabling it no matter how much you block streams and everyone I know that uses Twitch feels the same way. You can completely block streams if you want, I just won't use your platform at all. It's up to you, stop being such scumbags with how you manage your platform and you wouldn't have as many people using adblockers. You will lose at least half of your viewers as soon as viable competitor…

  2. As a streamer, I've started running reruns during times when I know I won't be streaming but there are possible viewers watching. I was thinking you should develop a way to schedule ad breaks during reruns, that way, we can control the ad experience a little better even during our off times.

  3. It's extremely annoying missing content with all the ads. Can you imagine watching TV shows where you miss content during commercial breaks? Yeah, didn't think so.

    There should be an Opt-In option for users to Buffer the Stream when mid-roll ads are playing, then after the ad is done the buffered stream is played back at 1.5x speed until you're caught up with the live stream.

    This wouldn't need to be enabled for the pre-rolls, just the ads after the stream is playing so you don't miss content.

    How is this not a thing?

  4. I see multiplayer ads which are polls, twitch could take it to the next level and have multiplayer ads where chat plays each other in a minigame for 30s or 1m, like a very quick battle royale

  5. I feel that a few of features that are new, or in testing, on Twitch had a dedicated place on the page to run instead obstructing streams , or flashing up in chat.

    Having a small area (maybe the top 1/4 of the chat area on desktop) to host these features wouldn't be that intrusive, and could be used as a place to display small ads for non-subs, and maybe the area could be used for the streamer to host custom apps (like overlays) for subscribers.

    I'm a huge fan of consistency, so having an area like that to test…

  6. If you want people to run ads, give them a reason to WANT to run ads. The hardest thing to do on Twitch is get discovered. Allow people to be higher up, or at the top of, a directory for a certain amount of time whenever they run an ad on their stream. Cap it out so you can't do it all day.

    People will run ads for discoverability AND they'll have a chance to grow.

  7. No advertisements for active chatters.

    I think that when a streamer rolls an add or the auto rolling adverts pop up it can massively drive viewers and people invested in conversation away from the channel and forum.

    A simple fix would be to not roll adverts to those actively chatting in the stream.

    Say a 5 minute timer from last recieved message then roll an ad to that user and maximum of 1 ad to said user per user. Or a quick pop up box like the channel points warning users an advert is 30 seconds from rolling. Click on…

  8. Instead of pre-roll, mid-roll, or whatever adds, add a feature where the user can choose if they prefer adds right when they join the stream, throughout the stream, or after the stream(and before watching anything else).

  9. So just like Facebook and WeChat allow a preview of games and ads that involve interactivity, perhaps Twitch can include support for playable ads in pre-roll ads or in-stream ad breaks.

    Here is an example of what I am talking about provided by Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/business/m/one-sheeters/playable-ads

    I have listed down all the benefits of including playable ads in Twitch on this shared Google doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1T2iNVrNcf8Dz8l09f0eiIEt0dMMLb9ggaiU-OqIOP7M/edit#

    I am working on a project with a non-profit but we chose NOT to put our marketing on Twitch because they don't offer playable ads (unless they do and you can let me know) which previews…

  10. I think content creators should be able automatically run ads every 15 mins or however often and how long for so there is less need to have your stream manager open

  11. Celebrate watching ads and provide value for the viewer and the streamer instead of regulary interrupting the consumers experience with unwanted content.

    How? Here is an idea:

    Twitch already had the "Watch ads for bits" function - but it currently is quite hidden in the "get bits section". What if instead of a forced full screen ad for x amounts of seconds twitch provides "watch this ad for bits" button on screen.It should appear at random times during streams or if the streamer triggers it manually.

    There some ways to incooperate this feature with the current twitch flow: Streamer can…

  12. Rather than constantly shoving ads down everyone’s throat how about instead when you join a stream there is a button that shows 1 que’d ad and then it has a time limit before it must be watched say 30 minutes or something. This way the VIEWER can pick a relatively slow point in the stream to view it rather than missing out on important parts of the stream or conversation. This would at least be better than the current method of shoveling ad after ad in our faces and stupid random times that do nothing but piss off me and…
