  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Take away the 24 hour exclusivity rule for affiliates. It stops growth for many people and hurts everybody in the long run.

  5. 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!

  6. After receiving a notification about the changes to the Twitch Terms of Service on 6/6/2023, it is clear that there are changes that greatly affect streamers and how they are able to earn an income through the Twitch platform. Before I begin, I highly recommend that Twitch consider creating a way to be able to highlight changes made to their Terms of Service when they are updated, as there was no indication of WHAT changed specifically until I saw a thread on social media explaining it. This is an easy fix to a frustration that many have when a website's…

  7. 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’…

  8. Nowadays there are lots of content creators on Twitch with follower/subscriber camps of sizes that easily outnumber those of some who have already reached their partner status. Yet, these persons still struggle after years (if not decades) of streaming to cross the required average viewer boundary which would grant them considerably wider possibilites to fascinate the audiences of theirs and other people.
    I've heard from them that if their follower camp would watch their stream at the same time, they already were partners. That is a fact that it is not a simple task for such amount of people with…

  9. Cozy games are often indie projects and rarely get popular to the point that people are manually searching for them on twitch. I suggest we get a Cozy Gaming category so everyone can browse for cozy streams. Cozy gaming is a niche sector women and lgbtq+ people had to carve out for themselves in the industry and I hope with time it will bring more people in ❤🥺 As of right now, it's hard to find cozy streamers on twitch. I find most of them on tiktok because the algorithm makes it easier for me. I know we can have…

  10. Text-to-speech is a great feature of the Twitch alerts integration. However, when viewers trigger an alert that uses TTS on my channel, the integration does NOT read out emotes. Instead of hearing "fletch61Heart" read out, the text is skipped. I'd like an option to enable / disable reading of Twitch emotes so that broadcasters can choose for themselves what gets read during alert messages.

  11. Right now, if you are not broadcasting and join someone else's Stream Together, you will not show up in your followers' feeds as "live": you show up fine as a +1 for the host of the stream, as well as the other live participants, but your own followers have no idea of your involvement in these streams on their follower feed unless you start your own broadcast (which is bad in certain scenarios, that I will expand upon in a bit).

    Hence why I suggest that if you are not "live", but still participating in a Stream Together session, you…

  13. Twitch channels got the ability to reach a lot of people and eternalize some pretty cool moments through Clips made by those who participate in their community. We all love that, those are mostly pretty great!

    But sometimes, people would clip stuff out of context that'd just be mean and could be harmful to the creators. For example, something taken out of context could be seen in a serious and really bad way, when the intention was not even there in the first place.

    Of course, we can always delete some of them that doesn't feel right. But I just…

  14. Hi,
    I have the viewer streak feature on my stream and noticed the streak only starts when missing a stream first.
    It would be nice to have the streak start even for viewer who didn't miss any stream.

  15. 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…

  16. Instead of just having discoverable clips, take inspiration from apps like Youtube, Tiktok and Instagram and have a reel/shorts section. Give creators the option to edit and upload their short clips to a reel with other creators for the casual observers to swipe through. Encode it so that every clip ends with a link to the channel, enable likes, share and follow commands on these clips. Provide options to scroll through all channels, recommended, friends, followed channels, subscribed channels etc. Ads revenue could be generated through this , discoverability for smaller channels, or large revenue you through top creators. This…

  17. While I do understand the need for the changes allowing for a DJ category and also the perks of there being a DJ category - variety streamers who DJ and do other types of streams seemingly get left in more confusion. Being forced to separate your channel into multiple channels when you've built an audience on being a variety streamer doesn't seem fair - however if the revenue percentage fees for the DJs is channel wide and not based on categories or even whether you're a DJ who even plays copywritten music - it effectively means even non DJ streams…

  18. The new feature tracking and indicating a streamer's affiliate or partner anniversary is great, but it would be awesome if we could also do the same with the anniversary of our first ever stream!

    I personally don't celebrate my affiliate anniversary, as the date that is more important to me is when I started my streaming journey in the first place. Having that celebration built in would make this feature way more appealing and applicable to me! I currently choose to have it turned off rather than have it highlight a date that I don't celebrate.

    Even better, letting streamers…

  19. Wish streamers could choose what clips are shown when they receive ‘shout outs’. Example: the clip that shows of me is me troubleshooting during a video game. Not a good luck as far as promoting channel.
