    1. Go to your channel.
    2. Click "Edit Panels". You should see this: https://i.gyazo.com/7431ffc77efa263da1b8753ac81f3328.png
    3. Click "Activate" on one of the default extensions. A popup will appear.
    4. Click "Activate" on the bottom right of the popup. The popup will disappear.
    5. Click "Configure" on the newly added panel extension. A popup will appear.
    6. Click "Activate" on the bottom right of the popup. Nothing happens.

    When you have 3 or more activated extensions, clicking "Activate" on step #6 will display a dropdown. Until then, it does nothing.

    This confuses users and causes them to send bug reports to the extension developer, when really this is…

  1. Whether you stream on PC, console, or mobile platforms there is only 2 components, 1 overlay, and 3 panels. I understand that this was probably the most anyone wanted to attempt when you guys 1st started. However, now you are probably the top kid in the streaming game, and this feature could use an update in amount of available slots. If these were always showing then I could see the need for a limit, but most only become visible once hovered over or located in the panel section below. So with this being said you could add more slots for…

  2. When an Extension goes through constant improvement cycles the Extension versions start to pile up on the developer dashboard. There doesn't appear to be a particular order in which the versions are displayed so it becomes a tedious task to find the latest one just by looking through the small semver text on the thumbnail.

  3. I seem to have a persistent issue with users who are banned from my chat still being able to use my extensions to troll/harass me, resulting in the deactivation of the extension until the user moves on. Please have extensions check for banned users and disallow them to use the extension on my channel if they are banned. This is a particularly large issue especially with the Sound Alert Extension. Imagine being spammed with a "RIP" alert every thirty seconds just because you banned a 12 year old from your streams. Not Fun.

  4. Provide a way to automate each step of the "Extension Life Cycle". https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/extensions/life-cycle

    Extension developers manage their extensions through email, and a website. There's a ton of links to click, lots of waiting, never ending confirmation dialogs.. and more clicking.

    I want to perform one action (one click, one cli command, etc) to move to the next, or previous step. It would save us devs a lot of time and energy.

    Personally, I would love to be able to do this on the command line.

    $ twitch --to-hosted-test -y -f twitch.config.js

    Boom and done. Now you made a mistake and…

  5. I love watching some streamers, but sometimes the music they play is a bit too loud or quiet for my personal taste. It would really be great if there was some way that I could adjust the volume output of the music on my end to something that is more enjoyable for me, and allows for everyone to have the music at the level they want

  6. To optimize the SEO, I recommend that the name of the extension should be included in the title of the extension detail page.

    Currently i'm getting search result like:

    Extensions - Twitch
    https://www.twitch.tv › ext
    <description of the extension> ...

    I am of the opinion that this would significantly improve the visibility of the extensions and make it easier for streamers to find the extension when searching via search engine pages.

    Cheers,
    GhostZero

  7. With the announcement of the mod view at Twitchcon 2019, it would be great to have moderator views for extensions.

    A moderator view would be optional and would allow moderators to have some control over the extensions (equivalent or less than the dashboard view)

  8. Some extensions, do use image upload.
    To avoid flaws in the moderation system it would be great to have an image upload system on Twitch.

    The streamer or developer could upload an image, that will be reviewed by Twitch, like emotes or cheermotes, etc. Once the image is approved, it can be used in the extension on the streamer's channel.

    This will allow streamer to have more personnalisation options in extension, without adding multiple image upload system for each extensions that doesn't go through the twitch moderation system.

  9. Today extensions (overlay extensions) are only available on certain web browsers (for PC/MAC).
    Make it available/work on all browsers.

    Today extensions (overlays) don´t work on mobile and tablets (apps).
    Make it available/work on mobile and tablet apps.

    Please also find a way to make extensions synced, be able to be used in replays/VOD´s/Clips.

  11. Explicitly state somewhere in Content Policy (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/extensions/guidelines-and-policies/#4-content-policy) that integrations with certain products competitive to Twitch may be rejected on review.

  13. It would be cool to have a option to add a client reference id when creating the transaction. This would allow me to link a transaction (before create the transaction flow) to a specific item by just using the method useBits() and the new webhook.

    Currently I still have to use the onTransactionComplete. To link the item to the transaction. However, if the developer’s EBS experiences an outage, it is difficult to retroactively fulfill the benefits to viewers who have already spent Bits.

    I have in an extension virtually "infinite" items which can be purchased with bits that shares the…

  14. Currently viewers can make an extension invisible via the extension taskbar but this setting does not persist. There are some channel extensions that I find useful and others that I find to be intrusive.

    My only option to remove intrusive extensions presently is to disable them all (by automatically removing the extension-content and extension-taskbar divs). It is a shame to have to disable the functionality entirely for the sake of a few irritations.

  15. There's potential to develop Extensions that can help a broadcaster manage and improve their stream with different tools and manage everything in a single page, the live dashboard! However, this is currently not possible since all Extensions need a viewer facing view.
    Current workaround to always keep an Extension on a hosted test. But this hinders discoverability and doesn't go through Twitch's review flow.

  19. When the user adds an extension as a panel, it comes lined with a border. Could we have the option to toggle this please?
