  1. Streamers should have the ability to opt-out of certain ads, particularly military recruitment ads. Some creators may have a younger audience. The streamer should reserve the right to protect that audience. The military ad complex is already vast and has deep roots within Twitch. If a streamer does not want that sort of content on their channel, they should be able to block it. Additionally, this option should be able to be seen publicly. Parents who check their children’s activity might want to be able to know a streamer opts out of Military recruitment ads targeted at minors.

  2. My friend just watched a vod and got an ad that made it seem like a kid committed suicide with their parent's gun. I'm assuming this was some kind of ad to promote gun control. Regardless of your political view, putting an unskippable ad with that kind of content is not something that should be allowed for a widespread audience.

    Either those kinds of ads should not be allowed at all, or we should be given more control over what ads we would like to see on the platform.

  3. Ads playing immediately upon trying a new channel is a bit frustrating. I usually just turn off Twitch and go to YouTube or somewhere else because of how Twitch does ads immediately upon attempting to watch a channel. Just letting you know that it's pretty invasive and I, personally, actively never purchase anything from an advertisement that annoys me... and your ads annoy me constantly because of their placement.

  4. As rich as Amazon is you do not need commercials as much as you show them in streams and obviously your not going to get rid of ads. Find a way to show ads where it will not interrupt stream watching. Maybe a tiny box with an ad in stream where is someone is interested in the ad they can click on it. This way you get a true click number for you data. But I guarantee you that your numbers will be low because people cannot stand commercials. Watching these ads pop up ****** people off . Why do…

  5. Maybe add more ads i don't know but stop spam the same one for days or weeks this can't be benefic for you or the compagny that bought these ads. Swaping stream and seeing the same ad again and again with a too loud volume is very harrasing

  6. I am a former Alcohol abuser and I really don't appreciate the recent trend of literally every collection of ad's for some of my streams contain ads for alcohol. It seems 1, like a waste of ad space for me, and 2. an annoyance and reminder of a temptation i don't want or need.

    It would just be nice to be able to just block ads for drugs/alcohol.

  7. The fact that I have to sit through a 30-second to a 2-minute ad break before even seeing what the streamer is doing destroys browsability for your website generally at best, and will systematically hurt and snuff out small streams at worst. An ad-free 30-second buffer when entering a stream would allow the user to find what content they would enjoy before having their experience invaded. This idea also benefits the website's bottom line by helping retention of unsubbed viewers by offering them content rather than spam upon arrival to the site which improves retention and optics.

    In short, ads…

  8. As we know, ads are common on any platform and I understand they're a primary source of income. Generated for both parties (twitch, and content creators) and is evenly split between both parties. However, sometimes these ads are intrusive and lead to a reduction in viewer retention.

    While the viewers suffer from advertisements but also streamers, streamers stream for 4 hours a day, sometimes every day, and some stream more. That's a part-time job, and some aren't gaining anything out of it. I, myself am a streamer and try to stream 5 days a week, but I find it very…

  9. Add a feature where it announces upcoming ads in the chat as an optional feature so users can enable or disable it.

    For people with 1 monitor like myself, I have no idea when ads are coming. I can talk though the ads (as they aren't short) and I have no idea no one can hear me.

    I, and many others with a single monitor, use SLOBS chat overlay to see chat or other programs that overlay the chat.

    If ads could be announced in the chat such as "ad coming in 10s" or something like that, the host could…

  10. Ads are constantly playing every time I change publishers. It's getting annoying to watch the same ads over and over. Most of the time, when I'm bored, I go to twitch and when I click on the first broadcast, I immediately close twitch. I've been encountering advertisements a lot lately, now I use twitch less. Yayının ilk 5 dakikasından sonra reklamlar gösterilmeye başlıyor. Bir yayıncı seçip izlemeye karar verdiğimde, reklamları görmek sorun olmayacak. Önce hizmetten faydalanmak sonra Twitch'e reklam ile katkıda bulunmak gerekiyor.

  11. If you are going to play ads every time I try to open a stream then at least put a bit of variety. I have gotten the same ad 12 times in a row.

  12. Hi. I would really love it (being that you earn millions and are backed by Amazon with insane profits) if you would display even more adverts on your site. I mean, I like an advert - but what I really want is to sit through at least 5 minutes of adverts before even getting to watch a stream. Maybe also, and I know this is a big ask, but if you could stop a stream every other minute and show a minute of adverts too? That would be golden. Thanks.

  13. I have intense anxiety and suffer from chronic nightmares; not being able to safely peruse twitch is greatly affecting my safety as a user. Add an option to filter/opt out of triggering ads, or at least implement a way to report distressing ads. This would improve the user experience for people with anxiety, PTSD, paranoia, and even those who prefer family friendly streams. Not having this as an option is ableist and alienating a large portion of your user base.

  14. I'm sure that I'll get a form letter of some type for this submission.

    It is well established that Ad Partners pay good money for running Ads on the Twitch platform.

    It is also known that almost, and I mean almost, everyone hates ads. Even as a streamer, ads running cause a loss in viewers.

    As of today, any time an ad runs, I will close Twitch and go watch something else, somewhere else. The ad will remind me of this new idea and eventually, I will simply just not open the webpage.

    Thank you.

  15. Streamers who have tagged their channels as "family friendly" should be configured to block adult ads. In particular, ads promoting alcohol.

  16. The first time I reported this ad (months ago when first seen) it was removed for me and it's returned, however won't go away with the report function. The constant advertisements with "suicide" are extremely off-putting and destroying my positive user experience.

  18. Currently twitch is forcing me to view 5 ads whenever I click on a stream.

    This is turning me off watching completely, as these ads last for 5 minutes.

    I think we can agree that it is crazy to expect a viewer to wait for 5 minutes before they can see the stream and decide if they want to continue watching.

    This is currently making it impossible for me to browse streams.

  20. If I'm distraught enough by an ad to make the effort to mark it as offensive, I never want to see nor hear it ever again ONCE, instead of being repeatedly submitted to it for days on end. Simple as that.
