  1. There was a notice put out about hosts becoming deprecated next month.
    This is an awful idea. Do not do this.
    The reason given for doing it is clear and obvious deflection; it's false. No one with average viewership under like 6000 uses twitch chats as a community server; when someone is offline, that's it. Their attention is off the chat and elsewhere. The idea that hosts prevent interactions with streamers is complete bull.
    Moreover, raids are not a direct replacement for hosts (most people don't even -know- this because this fact has been so thoroughly obfuscated,) because of the…

  2. For a limited time, within a select number of channels, we’re testing a different way to Cheer through direct purchase Cheering.
    Direct purchase Cheering allows you to unlock a fun community benefit through monetary payment, rather than through Bits. This experiment is only available to select creators and you must be located in the U.S. to participate. If you have any further questions please refer to our help article (https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/cheering-experiment-2022?language=en_US)
    We look forward to hearing your feedback on this!

  3. Streamers should be able to restrict raids from recently created accounts (e.g., streamer-specified thresholds of 10 minutes, 1 day, 1 week, etc.)

    This is useful to combat repeated harassment from people who create new accounts with inappropriate names to raid into channels (esp. of marginalized communities)

    While restricting raids to only channels the streamer follows is a possible band-aid, this substantially hampers growth (i.e., cure is worse than the disease) when this account age restriction would solve the trolls we are currently receiving

  4. So we know that Partner's get a way to give a lifetime subscription to 2 bot accounts and 3 other users, I was hoping that this could be extended with a role kind of permission that would allow affiliates to be able to gift it to their bots as well. This would make life so much easier for affiliates and let partner's know that this is an option as many don't know about it already and this would make it clear for everyone and less maintenance from the partner management team to let us manage it ourselves.

    For implementation, you…

  5. So Hype Trains have been around for a while now with minimal improvements. Many casters, including myself, don't use them due to their lack of integration, custom styling and lack of purpose. I have a few suggestions that, if enacted, would not only get me to use them but also improve the system overall for all creators.

    It breaks down to three main suggestions:

    • Allow us to identify the emotes that are rewarded to the userbase. Just like we have a "Sub" and "Follower" emote section in our panel, a "Hype Train" section would be added. This would allow us…

  6. Since affiliate follow-emotes have come live, I've noticed several streamers are unable to use the new features due to suspensions 3 or 5 or more years old. So much so that some streamers can't even recall being suspended, or the reason for suspension, while maintaining a spotless record since then while consistently streaming for years, maintaining long term subscriptions and teams.

    Despite otherwise fulfilling all the requirements for "Instant Upload Eligibility Requirements", they remain locked out of these new features, taunted by a link reading "find out how to regain access", with no further support, as they already meet said…

  8. What if @twitch communities could “Air Drop” Bits, Gift Subs, Donations etc. during a raid?

    A Streamer starts a raid & a timer begins & the viewers from the channel raiding “Fill the Air Drop” (A Crate/Giftbox etc.) & AFTER the raid begins but BEFORE the support drops, Twitch sends an alert to the top of the chat of channel being raided indicating ”Air Drop Incoming!” w/ a countdown timer & pic/gif of the Crate/Giftbox w/ a parachute attached to it & when the countdown hits 0, ALL that support drops into the chat of the (small 🥺) channel being…

  9. The option to vote on polls with bits disappeared overnight with no announcement and no viable replacement.

    This was a great way for viewers to financially support streamers in a way that contributed to choices made on stream (In my channel it was used for character selection within a game and variety game choice outside of the main stream game). I understand if a new concept is ready to go that creators can use as an alternative, but as long as there is no alternative, streamers who used this feature and Twitch itself will lose revenue.

    I'm not sure why…

  10. Teams get little to no attention from Twitch and it's about time we changed this! Twitch teams have been around for many years yet majority of users have no idea what is it. Teams is such an amazing feature with lots of potential, we just need the support we deserve!

    • Give us back the ability to edit the team order on the Dashboard and make it easier to move everyone around rather than moving them one at a time.

    • A chat badge would allow for better networking and introductions between fellow team members.

    • Add a "follow all" button for those…

  12. Twitch has asked us to hold them accountable and we have been met with a wall of silence accompanied by shadow changes like the ones made to auto-hosts.

    Twitch must communicate to creators with transparency about the plans and the data that leads to them. Without streamers there is no Twitch. We deserve to be able to ask questions and voice concerns about potential changes to the platform that we make possible.

    These are the changes we would like to see:

    1. Allow for comment periods in advance of finalizing rollouts of changes to existing features.

    2. Provide open access to data…

  13. At Twitch we’re always trying new things, and our newest experiment is: The Support Activity Feed! This experiment will show a list of recent events in the channel above chat. If you wish to opt out, you can disable this experiment in your Leaderboard settings here: https://dashboard.twitch.tv/settings/revenue/leaderboards

    This experiment and your feedback will help us continue to improve Twitch. Please comment any suggestions you have for us below. Thank you!

    Hey all! Given the results of our first experiment, we're now in the second phase. For this part of the experiment, to help us collect specific data, users won't have the ability to opt out of seeing the Support Activity Feed; however, this portion of the experiment should conclude in September. We would still love to hear all of your suggestions, so please continue to comment your feedback below!

  14. We’re experimenting with cues as a way to help streamers while they're live. Follow cues are a feature that reminds streamers to tell viewers to follow when they are live. Timing of these reminders are based on real-time data that tells us when the percentage of viewers not following you is higher than usual. We are testing location of these cues in either Chat or Activity Feed.
    We look forward to hearing your feedback!

    Hey y’all, thanks for your patience! Follow cues are back online for folks participating in the experiment.

  15. To better support artists and accredit their talents among the Twitch community, we’ve released two new features: Emote Attribution and the Artist Badge. Emote Attribution lets you credit the artists responsible for creating your emotes so they can feel the love wherever their emotes appear across Twitch. The Artist Badge lets you celebrate those who contributed artwork to your community with a special new chat badge.

    You can get all the details on our Help page here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/artist-badge-attribution

    We’re excited to share both of these features with the community, but they’re just the first steps to better connect creators and…

  16. I think it would be cool if streamers could upload custom versions of all badges on their channel. My sub badges have a certain style, I would love to give my founders/mods/vips/topgifters or even my broadcaster badge a custom version in the same style, so my entire chat can have one theme alltogether.

  17. Moments is a new way to celebrate channel lore and reward viewers for being part of the hype, live. With the click of a button, you can now turn major moments on stream into a commemorative chat badge that viewers will receive if they were watching live. The more moments a viewer takes part in, the higher badge tiers they unlock. Plus, newcomers can get to know your stream by clicking into these badges and viewing the defining moments of your community.

  18. Exporting previous broadcasts and highlighted VODs have been broken for 2 days for editors.

    The streamer themselves can export just fine, however the editor role gives a 403 error message with a blank white page and a followed error message that the channel is not connected to YouTube.

    I've tested and replicated the bug on my channel and others where I have editor role and made sure that the channels are connected to YouTube. Refreshing the connection by disconnecting and reconnecting doesn't seem to repair the problem.

  19. As a Twitch partner, our support from Twitch Staff continues to decline as more Twitch Partners are awarded over the pandemic.

    Twitch Bounty Boards have been something that Partners can use to increase the amount of money they make each month from Twitch.

    Can we set it up, so all Twitch Partners as part of their offerings from Twitch Staff once hitting this status?

  20. Problem: Current Hype Train emotes are rarely updated, unlocked quickly, and seldom used.

    Solution: The Community

    Every Streamer picks one emote to be available globally in Hype Trains. Hype Train participants unlock one of the million+ emotes at random.

    And then you lose access to the emote you unlocked after 30-days to not detract from the value of a direct sub to that streamer's channel.

    In that realm of thought, this also works as a discovery feature. People might be curious about the channel whose emote they have unlocked - and go check them out. Perhaps they like the emote…
