  1. 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.

    • 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…

                  • New homepage annoying me.

                    You cut the homepage into too many blocks, it is confusing, inefficient and disturbing.

                      • 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.

                          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'.

                          • Option to turn off auto-host nagging

                            I know that you're proud of your built-in auto-hosting feature, but there are those of us (or am I the only one?) who don't need it, don't want it, and are tired of the incessant nagging about it that only seems to be getting worse. How about an option to turn off that nagging?

                            In my own case, I have a bot that I wrote that handles such things in a way that I personally prefer.

                            • 'Recent streams' automatic Collection

                              Right now 'Collections' are placed above all your recent streams, which is not ideal as recent streams are usually the first thing people look for.

                              It would be great if we could have an automatic Recent Streams 'collection' that can be placed at the top of a streamer's Videos page (with all their other Collections beneath).

                              It would look a lot neater!

                              Cheers.

                                  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.

                                    For channels that do charity events or that just feature multiple people streaming under one channel. A 'Follow X's Channel' button next to the main follow button would be handy.
                                    I guess the button will update by re-entering the URL of the current person streamings page in the dashboard.
