  1. In light of the recent, well thought out decision to remove the term "blind playthrough", I believe it's time to show your commitment to not alienating users with disabilities by removing the term "walkthrough" and changing the name of the platform.
    You've shown a willingness to accommodate blind gamers, don't you think it's time to extend the same courtesy to those with paralysis or one of the myriad of conditions that cause involuntary spasms.

  2. I have my browser make text and zoom in onto the websites I view to allow for easier navigation. With my settings, I find that with both side panels decide to break and text overlays on top in the about section of a streamers page. You can start the side panels collapsed so that visually impaired persons can navigate the website better

  3. Hi.

    As a user, I've been repeatedly and increasingly unhappy with the level of transparency the Twitch team offers to their userbase.

    You drop unannounced updates
    --> Example would be the /me change

    You don't reply to userfeedback (aside from incredibly broad statements)
    --> Mails towards the Twitch Support are answered with automatic replies. Most of them send users to UserVoice
    --> But here on Uservoice, barely anything ever gets an answer and if so, it's a "we'll think about it" until it either is forgotten or we're back at the unannounced Update again.

    You force random users into beta…

  5. I don't know what happened but i can't change my volume anymore from the offline screen of people or myself, you used to be able to do it and it was very useful for me when i was going to go live.

    Probably most of you did not notice it was gone so hopefully this makes you realize that it was removed.

  6. When my browser gets closes/opened and at some point go to my Twitch tab (have pinned) I always find a video playing. I don't know it's playing because by default Twitch has sound muted. What's happening is you are wasting my data plan. As youtube provides, you should have a way to enable/disable auto play. This also happens when I've completed watching a video - it auto starts playing another video if I'm not right there to press stop/pause. This should only happen if I have a playlist and I don't see that option either

  7. Me encuentro con un bug de la pagina desagradable al querer iniciar el programa de afiliado en twitch.
    Al darle a empezar me dirige a una pagina con el siguiente mensaje "Lo sentimos. A no ser que tengas una máquina del tiempo, ese contenido no está disponible."
    ¿Alguna posible solucion?

  8. Organize claimed drops into folders by Game/Application

    It's very cloggy and hard to see when reviewing claimed drops with too many in inventory

  9. When we hover over any of the channels on the followed channels screen, I would like the unfollow and subscribe button to appear quickly. It can be thought of as a pop-up. We shouldn't have to go to his page to unfollow or subscribe.

  10. A theme option may be offered with the color scheme of the device's operating system. Thus, if the device switches to dark theme in the night, Twitch also switches to dark theme. Example: YouTube

  11. Having light mode as the default theme can be quite bright and loud upon first entering the site. Dark mode is much easier on the eyes, and much easier to read.

  12. I'm watching twitch for the streamer and will never watch reruns, although they bloat my interface and are difficult to distinguish from real live streams. I'd like an option to hide them / make them less noticable when scrolling my "FOLLOWED CHANNELS".

  13. Sometimes a streamer announces a specific time when they will go online and do something special (an event, an announcement, etc.). It would be cool if I could get a small sound alert when that streamer goes online so I can in the meantime play some game or do other stuff while waiting and don't have to watch the clock all the time.

  14. i think it would be a good idea if twitch could let people transfer their current subscriptions to other accounts, because i have a twitch account that i have had for a while and i would love to make a new account for many reasons but i’ve been subbed to people for months and have gifted so much, if there was a feature where i could make a new account and transfer my current subs to a different account that would be amazing as i wouldn’t loose all the money i spent on subs, i’m pretty sure people have asked…

  15. I am Disabled and I struggle to watch anything without subtitles. Streams also size wrong with my computer and I want to chat when watching. That means that I have to use popout mode and even streams that do have captions, I can't access through popout mode.

  17. As someone with a condition similar to Narcolepsy I am potentially subject to sleep attacks - without notable warning.

    As far as i am aware, the current ToS would result in me being potentially banned should i have a sleep attack while streaming and not have a Mod in chat at that precise moment.

    I am currently a small streamer (and while that reduces the likelihood of me being reported for 'unattended chat while streamer sleeps' it doesn't eliminate it - and that may change over time), and as such it is not always possible to have a mod lurking…

  18. 100 bits seem to be required to activate a hype train, showing that information in the bar that shows up now to encourage others to donate would be helpful.

    Or, another option would be adding the collective smaller bit amounts till 100 is met for the hype train to activate.

    Either way. There is a flaw currently with the information to activate a hype train.

    Thank you.

  20. Naam verandering verdienende accounts moet makkelijker gaan.

    Voorbeeld: een niet verdienend account (niet partner/affiliate) heeft een naam die een affiliate of partner wil. Dan zou de partner/affiliate een aanvraag kunnen doen voor een naamruil. Dit omdat de partner/affiliate geld verdient voor de twitch site en de non dat niet doet. Zo heeft de verdienende streamer de naam die hij wil.

    (volgensmij is dit er alleen voor partners en zou dit voor affiliates ook makkelijker moeten kunnen)
