Channel: Panels, settings, profile, notification, etc

  1. Automatically refresh stream page when broadcaster goes live

    Before you implemented the new player you didn't need to refresh the page when a stream went live. Now you will not even notice when a stream goes live unless you refresh the page.

    Example:
    Current behavior:
    1. Go to offline stream page (ex https://www.twitch.tv/reckful)
    2. Reckful starts his stream
    3. Nothing happens and the user has no idea that reckful has gone live even if he has had this tab open for hours

    Wanted behavior:
    1. Go to offline stream page (ex https://www.twitch.tv/reckful)
    2. Reckful starts streaming
    3. Stream starts playing instantly

    I know that this worked…

  2. Allow alt-text for images in channel panels to allow for accessibility for screen readers

    Using images in channel panels allows streamers a higher level of design control, but sacrifices readability for visually impaired viewers. Please allow an alt-text feature on these images so the text on them can be accessible.

  3. Personal dashboard for viewers

    I am not a streamer but I watch Twitch every day for hours. I would like a customizable homepage that I can launch everytime I come on. This homepage would have all streams I follow, top games right now, top streamers right now, top communities right now (maybe also communities I follow), top clips from streams I follow (where you can toggle by 24 hours, 7 days, 1 month etc). Everything customizable so that you can create your own little 'home'.

  4. GIFs and larger file sizes for Twitch Panels

    I would love to see animated GIF support for my stream panels or even larger filesizes permitted. Currently there is a 1 megabyte limit on file size.

    Since twitch loads the video stream first and doesn't load the panels until the user attempts to scroll down, the increased file size allowance would not impact the load time of a broadcast.

    Animated GIF, MP4 or MOV support would greatly increase the control and polish available to broadcasters

  5. Fix profile banner scaling

    The new profile banner image scaling, apparently introduced this week, attempts to cram the entire image into the space for it on the page. This may work for some images, but for most others (even those sized using Twitch guidelines) it just looks weird. Please either go back to the older image scaling, which attempts to fit images by height only, or make the new scheme an option.

  6. Unsubscribe from Prime Loot Notifications

    Most advertisements you get in emails at least give you the option to unsubscribe. I know what games and I'm not interested in free loot or whatever. The world has too much click bait already.

  7. Smart Notifications: Improvements

    https://twitter.com/thundergod97/status/1038248476948213760 my twitter thread about this.

    1. Option to always send an email (obviously not everyone wants this so it should be an OPTION. I use email notifications as a history of when people have gone live. I also get push notifications of emails from that email address on my phone, so I can tell when people have gone live.

    2. Base it actually on ACTIVITY. If I have browser windows at home open to twitch that does not mean I am ACTIVE on twitch. You should be able to tell when I'm active because I'm chatting or I'm clicking…

  8. Currently Streamed Game (New Channel Design)

    Hey Twitch,

    Lately I've seen that my Bot now has access to the upcoming new channel design. It looks very good (better than I thought) BUT I have suggestion for you guys:

    Please overthink how the "currently streamed game" is getting displayed. In the upcoming new design it's so unpopular and small placed down below the username it's "nearly invisible". In the current (old) design it had a cover image and was placed perfectly below the player. That was a great spot!

    Please please overthink the positioning or at least make it more visible (e.g. give it back a cover…

  9. Windows Action Center Notifications

    It would be great if the Twitch Desktop app used standard Action Center notifications on Windows 10. Currently, if you miss a notification when it occurs, there is no way to see it again. If standard notifications were used, they would be recorded in the Action Center so you can see it later.

    Additionally, because the current notifications are not standard, they do not obey Quiet Hours, which can interfere with current tasks.

  10. Panels don't always load on the new site version

    Using Chrome and Windows 7, and noticed that sometimes the panels below a stream will load and sometimes won't on the go.twitch.tv version of the site. This a glitch or intended? If intended really feel those things should always load as that's where a streamer posts things like social links to twitter, discord and other networking that helps communicate with viewers.

  13. use a windows 10 app for notifications & Time/Schedule calender

    I think it would be easier to have a windows 10 app not to watch the streams but just for notification when streams go live

    problems i face with current
    Email - I only check it 2-3 times a day so i don't get those notification when the stream goes live
    betterttv - it doesn't pop up on my computer all the time when a stream goes live

    also with this you can add a Schedule calendar to the app
    Streamers will add to there profile settings when they go live
    Monday [9am] to [2pm]
    Tuesday [9am] to [2pm]
    Wednesday…

  14. Don't change my preferences

    I have my preferences set as I want them. I don't need Twitch to change them for any reason. I have emails coming from who I am subbed to and I don't need Twitch changing that just because I haven't watched someone in awhile.
    F off

  15. Display streamer's Community link on new UI, please.

    A streamer's page used to display whichever Twitch Communities they listed themselves under, so that viewers could click the link and browse for similar streams in the same Community. The new UI does not seem to have that function.

  16. New accounts cannot because created with the word "grape" in it. Let new accounts use the word "grape"

    New accounts cannot because created with the word "grape" in it and will automatically trigger a red flag. I know this is nonsensical for some, but my name online has always had the word "Grape" in it because it is my last name. I'd love to create an account with the word "grape" in it. But apparently it's too close to word word "Rape" so it automatically won't let you put the word in your name.

  17. Video manager overhaul missing video length

    It seems like the length of a video would be a fairly obvious thing to include in the video manager list page, but whoever revamped it recently apparently doesn't think so. I was missing that info tonight when I had to delete a minute-long archive VOD because of a streaming issue.

  18. Profile - allow editing of Game Identities

    There is an edit button, but it does not have the ability to delete characters that I've deleted in game (or simply hide as I don't play them), nor prioritise the ones I want to showcase (mainly max level chars). Something like a star system to rank them would be useful too.
