  1. For most of this year there's been a lot that has been dysfunctional, while other new things are getting put out and unnecessary. Please fix these issues before putting out new things please (or just fix things and leave well alone).

    Raids have been broken via all methods. Will show the host but the raid fails 90% of the time.

    Clips glitch out and not work.

    Disable the popping out side bar. This is really unnecessary.

    Lay off all the intrusive ads. Seriously, please. Dear lord.

    Make queue for watch parties. It's stupid tedious and takes so much time to…

  2. Many advertisements have an extremely dangerous level of flashing lights, and all of them pop up without warning and they can and do trigger epileptic seizures as a result even in perfectly safe streams.
    This is an extreme concern for many people, including myself.
    There is a specific advertisement that has so much flashing it can trigger a seizure even for someone using medication because of it being so hazardous, that ad promotes audible.
    I tried reporting it to them for how dangerous it is but they do not accept feedback of a complaint category.

    I would like to request…

  3. Tie watching adds into the channel points people get to spend on channel rewards.

    Allow them to watch x amount of adds whenever they want and give a bonus reward to whoever's channel they are watching.

    This will help you with your ad issues.

  4. I understand the advertiser model to pay for the costs of running twitch however the ads are killing the experience for a lot of people (just do a search). Please give viewers the opportunity to take part in the ad auctions that run when deciding to show us an ad, e.g. let me set a maximum value for my attention and when you run the auction include me as one of the bidders, if I win the auction then don't show an advert and take the money from my bits (for example). Why shouldn't we have the opportunity to take…

  6. I wanted to give some feedback on the new ad experience. There is an audio bug that resets the volume to maximum after setting it to a predefined setting. So I turn it down during one ad then the next ad sets volume to max and screams at me. Using Microsoft Edge (Chromium), Windows 10 Pro.

  7. The current implementation of ads is very lackluster, it either complete obstructs the gameplay without Picture-In-Picture and creates a disconnect to the stream which is a detriment for the entire twitch experience or it obstructs most of the stream.
    A way better implementation would be to let the streamer control ad placement like cam placement in the stream and to have an ad window without audio that's about the size of a webcam. Especially with options like having the ads slightly transparent or as an overlay it could be way more attractive for companies as well since they get way…

  9. I think a better way for Twitch to approach ads is to do it sort of like the "Hype Train" but perhaps like an "Ad Train" or a short "Ad Watch Party".

    On PC for example, if the streamer has the "Ad Train" enabled, then it appears at some point (after being automatically or manually activated) in the the stream above chat similar to the "Hype Train".

    Give the viewers a time-limited option to join it or ignore the "Ad Train". If they join it, the ad will take the center screen and the stream will continue playing above the…

  10. along with the recommended viewers there should be a tab suggesting streamers who are streaming similar content but who are newer to streaming or have a lesser amount of viewers at that current time. I'm not suggesting that we get rid of the Recommended Channels feature but add Recommended NEW Channels

  12. Recently there has been a few changes on Twitch that could have been better implemented with some user research. Twitch has had a community set up for this exact thing for a long time, and yet, we are yet to see anything meaningful come through this. This is an ideal way for Twitch to get a better idea of how these changes are going to come through, without having to do "damage mitigation" after the announcement. Are we ever going to see this used?

  13. Allow Viewers a way to push Ads back for a certain amount of time to allow for live content to come to a break or at least not during a climax. This would also promote breaks for streamers pushing the community to be more accepting of Ads in general allowing for easier integration.

  14. 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.

  15. Mid-Roll Ads Feedback:

    You wanna roll more ads. Sweet. I want more pre-rolls disabled time for running them.
    90 seconds of ads = 45 Minutes of Pre-Rolls Disabled.
    Disable Mid-Roll ads if 60 seconds of ads have been ran in the past 60 minutes.
    Add an indicator both on stream and on Creator Dashboard that informs us if a mid-roll ad is about to be run within 10 minutes of ad, with a second 5 minute warning.
    Also inform viewers on stream that the mid roll ad that is about to run is 100% started by Twitch and not the…

  16. Instead of mid-rolls, why not ad an official ad extension. Maybe this would even be a "free" extension, and not take up a slot. Streamers could decide whether it presents as a chat banner, or a top bottom or side banner and where the ads go on an overlay system. If it's been too long since an ad has played, instead of completely hijacking the stream, banner ads will play where the streamer has opted for them. This way the streamer can ensure that as little important information is covered as possible. If a streamer plays an ad frequently enough,…

  17. for different monthly rates users can get a monthly "ration" of subs and bits at a discount and are opted out of ads in a "the more you buy the more you save" and "use it or lose it" model. It should also expand upon the "sub tokens" model so people can use them towards different sub tiers.

    ex of different tiers:
    $14.99/mo = 3 sub tokens/mo, no midroll ads, 500 bits/mo
    $24.99/mo = 6 sub tokens/mo, no mid or pre roll ads, 1000 bits/mo
    $49.99/mo = 20 sub tokens/mo, no ads,
    2000 bits/mo

    additional suggestions: you can buy this…

  18. 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…

  19. 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).
