Can we be allowed to block certain types of ads?
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.
Would love to be able to block specific ads. I have trauma associated with an old job that has started advertising on twitch and it's very triggering.
I had the option on both Google/YouTube and Facebook/Instagram to reduce alcohol ads. The fact that I can't do the same on Twitch is actually limiting my use of it. I would probably use it more if I wasn't bombarded with alcohol ads that I have no interest in and is hazardous to my mental & physical health and wellbeing.
It isn't going to matter how many ads for beer I see, I can't touch the stuff without it causing stomach upset. As for recreational alcohol, I'm just not interested. I find those kinds of ads annoying. some of the violent/horrific video game ads I've seen will cause me to shut off the platform and go elsewhere. I've people on Picarto I can watch.
Same here with the 0% beer ads.. makes me want to go right back to heavy drinking, of course with not 0% liquids. I can't believe the amount of pressing of alcoholic or 0% beer ads at this point.
Yes please! I would love this. I have Epilepsy and I would love to block flashy ads.
Please let us block ads we don't want to see. There is some stuff that makes me feel physically ill.
If we don't want to see ads for alcohol, we shouldn't have to. If we don't want scary or gory games we should be able to block them. If we don't want to see psychological manipulation from a certain institution, let us block it. If we are a recovering eating disorder patient, we shouldn't have to watch exercise ads that make us feel bad.
Let us choose, please.
Please for the love of god allow us to remove specific ads from our viewing. I see multiple ads per day about cancer in family members and as someone who has a mother with terminal cancer, they do not make me feel any better at all. In fact, I feel sick to the stomach everytime I see it, but Twitch forces me to watch these ads multiple times per day. Please allow us to block ads or at least remove ads with sensitive content before they cause serious harm.
Specifically the Bissel ad with the loud firework noise. It sets my dogs off every time and I've recently just started watching Youtube instead just to avoid that commerical.
