Ability to filter/opt out of triggering ads
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.
its absolutely horrible to see these ads and its triggering to those who have had an experience with suicide / had suicidal thoughts.
As a creator it's also unnerving that we can't choose what kind of ads are run on our channel. I haven't been the one to see it, but the fact that there are these out of touch ads about suicide airing on my channel is upsetting to me as much as it is upsetting to my community. If you don't leave it in the hands of the viewers to control what ads they are comfortable seeing then maybe make it so the streamer can filter certain ad topics that they don't want to be affiliated with and have running on their streams.
I had viewed one of these ads on Illusiaisles channel during stream and honestly had a breakdown over it. I saw it just 2 days after the end of a huge depressive episode so if I had seen that earlier there is a huge chance that I would have ended my own life. Please make it so we can chose a different ad to watch or remove them all together.
PLEASE. This is unacceptable, and the fact that nobody on Twitch's staff is seeing a problem is disgusting.
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.
Hello. I have no issue about viewing ads, you have to make a living, but I'd like to not be shown ads with ultra-violence, killings and so on. I know there are games like that, I know there are country cultures where violence is predominant and normal, I can accept that, as long as it isn't forced upon me. But in my culture, violence and killing are rather frown upon, and I'd like to have ads which are exempt of these. Thanks.
