  1. It basically takes the stream times of the last 30 or 31 days and averages them to give a summary of when you stream. You can set which days are grouped together, so if you stream somewhere around 5-6 PM on weekdays and somewhere around 3-5 PM on weekends, then you can select Monday to Friday to be grouped together and Sat.-Sun. to group as well, and your stream times will show as 3-5 PM on weekends (or somewhere around that number), and 5-6 PM on weekdays. This is publicly visible, so that way it's an automated way to show…

  2. When adding someone to the auto-host list, you could select if you want to host them regardless of what they're playing, or just when playing specific games.

    This would be beneficial for channels that focus on one game only, they could host channels that stream more games, but only when streaming the specific game they want their channel to be about.

    There's also the aspect of not wanting to auto-host channels when they play games we wouldn't want presented in our channel, but we could auto-host them only when they are playing games we agree with.

    Most importantly it would…

  3. I watch a lot of fighting game streams and fighting games are low numbers for twitch which causes pain for viewing multiple games at the same event. Some events have their own streaming team, such as Evolution (the largest fighting game tournament in the world), where they have their streams named Evo1, Evo2, etc.,
    This weekend is a far smaller event called Frosty Faustings and they have unaffiliated people running official tournament streams.

    We can increase Event stream visibility by having an Events tab on the front page with the name of the event. Clicking on the Event brings up…

  4. Subathons are something that many streamers do once or more per year to boost sub points or hit personal goals they've had. Adding onto the already available Events feature, being able to hold a special scheduled subathon event with a slightly discounted price for a subscription would be incredible for those wanting to hit their goals or unlock another emote slot. That being said, It would need to be limited to a certain number of uses per year so it's not super overpowered.

  5. Instead of the default icon for a VIP badge, allow me to upload an image for my users' VIP badge to show. For instance I give VIP badges to people who have won tournaments that I've broadcast on my channel. I'd like to make the VIP badge icon be a trophy.

  6. Hello I had a suggestion that might be a good idea to give more people a incentive to follow a channel, follower badges if you follow the channel you get a badge next to your name,

    1. It would be a good and easier way for streamers to recognise their supporters

    2. It would potentially help with channel growth

    3. Someone might really enjoy the follower badge and see the sub badge is a better looking version and it might even turn into a subscriber over a follower

    If someone was to really tone down their sub badge but still make the follower…

  7. I think it would be pretty awesome if twitch had some veteran badges, which can be also shown in Chat.
    Like 5 years registered twitch account, 10 years and so on.

  8. I think this kind of feature would be really interesting and exciting for viewers and streamers. Streamers could press a button to split their viewers to groups of for example 100 people and raid random channels in chosen category or all over twitch. With big streamers getting tens of thousands of viewers, this would mean a lot of small streams would get exposure from this feature. I have noticed chat gets really excited when raids happen, in both the raided and raider channel. This kind of random twist would make it even more exciting and fun!

  9. Say the ability for a viewer to be able to press on tabs that show the games stats that aren’t visable without this said tab, the ability to open up the streamers minimal to view the full map, this would happen only on the viewers side, would have to be a two way thing, could go beyond with other features the streamer would like to allow access to for viewers, be able to view the partners in a said stream if they are in a squad (with or without the ability to see the other squad members pov, but just…

  10. I think it would be a good addition to Twitch if a Streamer could have two or more streams running on a channel at once while they play with other Streamer(s)

  11. A payout progress page!

    You can see your payout history on Twitch, and how much you've made on Twitch in certain months/weeks, but for me and some others, its still a bit confusing on when to know when you've reached your $100 payout.

    So my idea was a progress bar, or any stat that shows you how far you are until your next payout, so you know how close you are, when you can expect a payout along with viewing your previous payouts.

    Benefits:

    • You know when you will get paid, which can be convenient for bills/other payments you have…

  12. Hey Twitch,

    The current Twitch IFTTT service is a great start. However, I'd like to see more event triggers for streamers. In specific:
    - If new subscriber on my channel (with variations for sub gift bundles)
    - If resub on my channel (with variations matching Twitch badges 1/3/6/12/etc)
    - If new host to my channel
    - If new raid to my channel
    - If cheer amount (with variation options)
    - If Tip/Donation (with variation options)

    Reason for request: Those of us who have Nanoleaf, Phillips Hue, or smart lights could utilize those event triggers to create some very cool lighting…

  14. Having different sub badges for people of different sub lengths is really cool but sometimes you really like your sub badge but your enter the next bracket so you have to go with a higher up one that you think is less cool.
    I think it would be better if you had the option to use any of the sub badges up to what you have reached

  15. So for example: I give a tier 1 sub to a viewer. The streamer should be able to gift 3 subs per month to any viewer they choose but the streamer can not get revenue from it. They get 3 per month and it resets every month

  17. Allow streamer the option to donate all channel revenue (subs, cheers, sales) directly to a charity. For maximum transparency the money could go from Twitch directly to the charity, and ideally maybe Twitch would consider taking a lesser percentage so that more of the money gets to the charity?

  18. As a streamer I want to be able to give an "I was there LIVE" badge to current viewers of my stream.

    Often something is accomplished live on stream that maybe significant to the respective community. By adding this badge it allows the streamer to 'officially' designate who was watching when that event occured.

  19. You should add different tiers of the gift badge, like the bit badge. It currently shows the ammount of gifted subs already in the message in chat, but this should also be reflected in the gift badge.
    Do a score system, lets call it gift score, like following: $4,99 sub gives 1 point, $9,99 gives 2 points and $24,99 gives even 5 points, like you did it for the streamer with the sub score.
    Depending on the gift score give different badges. Maybe in steps like 3,5,10,25,50,100 etc...

    Give the possibility to the streamer to upload their own gift badges,…

  20. The new /raid feature is great for channel networking as hosting has always been, but both can be problematic for many viewers. It would be convenient for the User Settings page to be updated with a set of opt out settings for both raids and hosts. If a user opts out of raids, they will be considered to automatically click "Leave" at the end of any raid countdown timer. If they opt out of hosts, hosted channels will not load unless the viewer intentionally presses the "Play" button.

    Raids and Hosting present problems for:

    1) Temporarily AFK viewers during the…
