Get a warning to follow and unfollow someone.
This would help people like me and others who use a mobile smart phone or tablet with touch screen help people who accidentally unfollow or follow. For example, "I unfollowed someone while watching them when I grabbed my phone, so now whenever I go back to look at my following section, he's not there." So, instead of having it so you automatically follow or unfollow, it will give a warning saying yes to follow or yes to unfollow and no to follow or no to unfollow. In my opinion, I think this is required with most of the things I have used that give warnings.
A confirm warning or a lock button to prohibit messing with the Follow / Unfollow really would be very nice.
I'm sure lots of people have done that by accident based on how easy it is to just slide your finger quickly (Mouse or Touchscreen) and click on the heart.
(I just have, btw.)
I accidentally unfollowed xqc too.. I emailed twitch about it and hopefully they can restore it..
accidentally unfollowed xqc today, I followed him since 2019 and this is ******* trash
also rip Bryon
I accidentally unfollowed xqc on may 25th 2020, and I originally was following him since February 2018. This new layout is trash and I'm sure many people agree.
I lost a year for trying to click on Clips and clicked the heart instead; now the !followage is inaccurate, which is upsetting
We really need a unfollow button confirmation dialog box (Are you sure you want to unfollow this user?) so we don't lose our following since time. You can accidentally click unfollow when you're trying to click something else near it. This has happened to me and other people in chat as well. Twitter and other sites already have this feature.
just lost 6 year old follow because of missclick EleGiggle
I unfollowed xqc who id been following for 2 and a half years, lost all my followage, twitch should avoid these UI changes or at least implement failsafes so people don't unfollow accidentally, this is ********
I just accidentally unfollowed Agraelus I had there 5 years follow and now its gone
This is completly bs! I accidentally unfollowed someone who i've been followed for 3 years.
A new feature should be like, if you follow someone back then it should keep followage then.
Or, give you a warning to confirm if you want to unfollow.
It's your fault Twitch, since you added this new stupid layout.
Yes please! I accidently unfollowed a streamer I followed for almost 2 years; it's frustrating. Add a warning prompt to confirm if you want to unfollow a channel or not. It should be very easy to implement. And if possible, recover the follow age of users who have accidently unfollowed a streamer.
On a Twitch clips page, people may mistake the 'heart' follow symbol as something else because there is no indication on what the button does.
Also, at times people may not realize they unfollowed someone so they begin to wonder why they haven't streamed for days, when it's not the case.
Lastly, there have been some cases where users have accidently unfollowed a streamer... so they follow again just to realize that the chat is set in follower's only mode. They can't type in chat until the time expires because their follow age has reset. There have been cases where it has taken as long as 3 months for time to expire.
I unfollowed a streamer can u restore my followage back to 1year1mo?😭
Yeah its just sooo annoying i was one of the first followers from a Streamer with now over 2 Million Followers.. Does it bring anything to ask the support if they can change it back?

+1 Please add this im fcking ripped..
can you plz add my followage back to sc slayerage on twitch plz
i was followed since he started streaming 4 years ago
This, please implement!
So the follow/unfollow button is a simple click and it's done. Which seems nice, but accidental clicks happen, probably more likely when a window is in the background and you missclick. This can lead to accidental unfollows and follows, the former being what people probably want to avoid most. Whether it's because they don't want to miss out on their favorite streamer if they didn't realize they unfollowed, or have some sense of pride in how long they've been following(using bots to check "followage").
My suggestion would be to add an unfollow confirmation prompt that pops up upon an unfollow, and possibly only if you've been following for longer than a set amount of time, say 24 hours. This would prevent any aggravation it could cause for an accidental follow as well.
Can't figure out how to vote but I definitely agree with this
Yep, so frustrating. I missclicked and lost a 3 year followage by accident...
