  1. I wish there was a button for editors next to a stream so that they can edit the stream without having to open an extra window for the dashboard.

  2. A feature that allows you to see your friends messages in streams highlighted, similarly to how when you're @'d. You get to pick a color to highlight your friends so that you could see/read their messages in larger streams. Of course you could choose to enable/disable the feature of your own accord, might become a bit annoying for the viewer when engaging in a smaller streamer's chat.

  3. Just wondering if anyone had thought of organising/making a Twitch orchestra, like the YouTube orchestra from approx. 2009? I know the creative arts sector is still relatively new on Twitch but would be such a cool idea if Twitch would support it and can sponsor/fund an orchestral performance with musicians from all around the world. There are a lot of super talented classical musicians on Twitch and it would be lovely if we could make music together!

  4. Right now we only have a slider option host channels in the team but I think it can be improved if you can select where in the priority list the team would fall. This would double down when you have multiple teams and can select which ones or games you would like hosted on your channel.

  5. twitch should let you pick your subscriber badge from any of the tiers you earned previously. like if you are a 1 month sub and they have a 1 month 3 month 6 month 1 year icon you should be able to pick any of them and not just be limited to the 1 month icon

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Since there are streamers and viewers from all over the world and therefore different timezones and googling said timezones becomes quite exhausting, why not introduce a "twitch-time(zone)".Have a clock ticking (and the date) in the corner or somewhere visible. This would for sure prevent any confusion with the starts of events or streams.
    Someone is streaming and announcing in the title of the stream when they are going to switch to a different game in "twitch-time"? Just take a look in the corner and you're sure to not miss it. Which timezone becomes the official "twitch-timezone", doesnt really matter.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. Diamond's are ethically sketchy (see: conflict/blood diamonds).
    I have been given VIP in a few channels and it makes me feel uneasy as I have been boycotting diamonds for about 8 years now.
    Even the option to have diamond or hearts would be wonderful, similar to how you can choose to show Prime or not.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. It would be cool if we got badges for donating to the streamer as well, since purchasing bits across outside the US (such as the UK for example) usually amounts to more than the bits are actually worth.

  18. 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…

  20. 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)
