  1. I have recently tested your new viewer count algorithms and have found results that point to two simultaneous streams are allowed only... not a 'handful'(?) as you stated on twitter?
    I believe this will make things impossible for the smaller streamers and hurt Twitch a little bit too in the long run.

    The smaller streamers are basically the collateral damage in this as most streamers on twitch have a slow moving all important chat until they get into the 100s of viewers. Most of the viewers that do stay behind will usually have multiple streams open as their main, whilst…

  2. Sub points should be accumulated & not get expired along with expired subs as it helps streamers to unlock emote slots quicker. And with more emotes available, potential subscribers would be more enticed to sub or continue their subscription.

    Looking at "expired" sub points on our partnered dashboard not only demoralized streamers before the start of each stream, we'd get less interested to help promote subscription to our viewers & would encourage direct donation instead.

    My current subpoints which unlocked 24 emotes is now at 366/1,000 because 600+ gifted subs expired this month. I don't see how I could get…

  3. Twitch needs to investigate the games that their affiliate requests are playing before handing out Affiliates. There are people who stream private servers who are getting affiliate status when they are in fact breaking Twitch rules!

    It is written in Twitch's community guidelines that "Unauthorized Content Sharing & Other Copyright Violations
    Uploading any content that you do not own, do not have the rights to, or are otherwise not authorized to use, violates our Terms of Service and may make your account liable to DMCA takedowns by third-party rights holders. We do not tolerate, for example: rebroadcasting other Twitch broadcasters’…

  4. Sometimes I'd like to bulk gift subs to a stream, but I'd prefer such subs go to followers among the viewers and/or current viewers to reward regulars and people currently engaged in the stream.

  5. I see twitch streamers are getting some attention when joining Twitch Affiliate. So why not Twitch uploads too? This requirement for twitch uploads to join twitch affiliate should be the second option just in case for some twitch users who don't stream that much! (Like me of course)

  6. It is not fair that Twitch takes 50% of a creator's sub (roughly $2.50) earnings. The percentage should be at least 60 / 40, in favor of the creator.

  7. I would love for Mods to be able to receive revenue separately from the broadcasters. I also think that the broadcaster should be able to choose which Mod should receive a payout also. Mods are very Important to the channel and should be recognized, appreciated, and rewarded as well. I always thank my mods for all of their hard work and support, and I think that with all of the hate and racist and homophobic trolls on twitch, a thank you is sometimes just not enough for the hard work they do to protect Us while streaming.

  8. I'm all for working hard. There is a sense of absolute pride when you finally succeed after a very long time of hard work and finally hitting the finish line. And my finish line is being able to become affiliate!

    But the "Average of 3 viewers" is very bothersome, as well for a few others I have talked to.

    I can never tell what it's doing. One minute is almost at .80/3, next thing I know I'm almost back at the beginning. I've got 3 people who automatically host me, I've had random hosts as well, I've had raids before,…

  9. Please create a No Commentary category for viewers who want to watch gameplay that does not feature webcams and mics.

    Or create a No Commentary tag that streamers can use so people can search the tag and find the content.

  11. Hi Twitch
    I want to demand the presence of Twitch servers in the Middle East in order to improve the quality of broadcasting in the Middle East because of the closest servers to us in France and Germany. We thank your efforts to develop the Twitch community.

  12. When I try to whisper someone, a pop up chat appears under the stream screen as default but when that happens I cannot see the buttons of full-screen, clip or settings. I believe that's a UX problem and should be improved.

  13. Bot Accounts have been a rampant issue that is being addressed as of late, and their necessity to Content Creators makes them a tricky thing to address.

    My suggestion is to allow Creators Affiliate and above to submit Bot Account applications. This would solve a few challenges:

    • By not allowing less than an Affiliate to create the account, individuals who would create them for trolling would have to actually spend time completing the path to affiliate in order to even create one. New creators would of course need to use the built in Twitch Moderator, but once you become an…

  14. I understand Twitch has recently allowed people to use other apps for means of authentication, but please allow users to use U2F/FIDO authentication, this is not only more secure but also very reliable. Having a U2F as primary with a TOTP as a backup is in my opinion the best method of security, given that Affiliate/Partner accounts hold alot of personal Tax information, I feel this fits more as it's such sensitive information.

  15. As a moderator for a speedrunning channel we often play the same game many times over the course of weeks or months. It would be a significant feature improvement to allow mods to save some "pre-set" predictions as opposed to only saving the most recent ones.

  16. better and faster twitch for everyone if they are not partner (no copy and paste messages) and no priority system. meaning everyone should be treated equal when it comes to support cause most times i submitted tickets they would get closed as a duplicate which means that it never got looked at even though three times it was a different ticket so would it be better to hire more staff for support tickets or get rid of the old ones who can't do the job anymore and hire more motivated ones who are interested in the job

  17. I am aware that there are ways that a streamer can incentivize viewer loyalty but if you are screamer that's just getting started and you're relatively impoverished, there's not much you can afford to do and it would be nice if that was something that was built into the system. I have observed other platforms that have things like that in place but they are not as effective as they could be and as how to do that, it's worth the conversation or if you podcast and brainstorming interactions to figure that out.

    I guess this is another leveraging moment…

  18. Some of us are exceptional but need a direct line to those with influence within management structure.

    Some of us are more valuable for other reasons rather than just a streamer and we are going to waste. You should have people hunting for that sort of person of whom can be a tremendous creative asset to your functionality and increase revenue.

    I've been wasting away on social media for 5 years now. I'm not socially acceptable, not a picture perfect marketable product for the likes of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube but a valuable product nevertheless. Just going to waste over…

  19. streamers can party stream with other streamers so the community can see everything that is happening, can we make a way for the community to do the same.
    i have several streamers that i watch and a few of these streamers come on at the same time.
    so having the ability to watch all of these streams all at the same time will help me keep up with the streamers i like.
    it can be just like the streamer version of a party stream, but the users add who they want to there party just to watch.

  20. i feel like letting new twitch partners have an option to allow people to sub for 2.50 for their first month as partner would be a good idea and a nice sentiment
