  1. Hello, I follow a lot of people on Twitch, a lot of people have not started streaming yet, will probably do it soon or will not stream at all.

    I find it impossible that the channel follow limit is 2000 follow.

    Please increase the number to at least 10000 channel follows, so that I can follow more than 2000 channels & users.

    Even on Youtube there is no channel following limit!

    Please increase this, I have to delete users from my channel list all the time, which annoys me a lot.

    I also find it very dubious for a streaming…

  2. When a user is banned, currently they can still follow the channel. Some trolls use this to get past mods who are removing game spoilers from the chat by following, as this often brings up alerts and non deletable messages in the chat with the spoiler. A example of this has been seen often in The Last of Us 2 streams where they spoil the ending. This has happened repeatedly on a stream I moderate, and across multiple others, pre-emptive banning to try and stop them does nothing to stop them following.

  3. As a streamer who likes to look at who is following them, having to go to my channel settings every time now to look at my follower list is highly annoying, this button should be added back onto our pages even if it is only visable to the steamer, this is for easier access which I think you will agree is better overall than something being out of the way and annoying to get too.

    The following button should be brought back as well for who the streamer follows so that way followers can look at who the streamer follows…

  4. Option to follow without the loud announcement that is to follow. Some of us introverts like to show our support without being acknowledged. As we lurk in the background silently enjoying the content we are provided, so should our follows be given the choice to go silently in to the night

  5. Basically, this idea would be for if a person were to unfollow a channel, a prompt would show up asking them to give a reason as to why they're unfollowing. For example, a streamer's content has been "getting old or repetitive" could be a reason, or they are "not interacting with their chat" as much, or any other reason like that. A streamer could enable or disable this feature depending on whether or not they want feedback from the people who unfollow them. The Twitch users who do unfollow can also choose to not answer why they are unfollowing, and…

  6. Repro method:
    1) Using Google Chrome version 88.0.4324.150 on desktop
    2) Place mouse over follow/unfollow button
    3) without clicking, remove curser from the button
    Expected Behavior: The "Follow"/"Unfollow" speech bubble should appear when the mouse enters the button, and disappear when it leaves the button, as it does for the turn notifications on/off button.
    Observed Behavior: The Speech bubble appears, but does not disappear until the mouse goes over another button.

    Repro rate: 20/20 100% over multiple stream pages

  7. Basically I would love to have a follow and un-follow alert notification when someone followers or un-follows my Twitch channel. I am surprised it is not already a feature on Twitch. It would be very convenient to have for us streamers who "follow support" each other. Please consider a follow and un-follow alert for streamers. It takes a lot of time to maintain.

  8. Já faz um ano que estou com esse problema e ainda nada. Não consigo seguir novos criadores, deixar de seguir antigos. Automaticamente após eu clicar em deixar de seguir o ícone volta pra forma anterior de como se eu ainda continuasse seguindo.

  9. I really didn't know where to post this, but I'm bored of accounts doing folliw-unfollow just to get attention. It's useless, annoying and only fools the system and the streamer. I've been target even of well established channels.

    My proposal is to restrict the follow-unfollow to a certain time (e.g. 1 week) or penalize a channel if it has a repeated f-u behavior.

  10. As a user, I would prefer that my social actions not cause any notification to the broadcaster or the chat.
    Such actions include (but are not to be limited to) following, subscribing to, and hosting a twitch channel

  11. It would be great, when following someone, to be able to add notes in a description field so that when I look over them again, or they pop up in chat/streaming, I remember where I know them from. Did I follow them from a raid, or they popped into my channel, etc.

  12. Would be great to see if you open someones channel that you can see if he follows you.just like twitter it also shows if the person is following you!
    Then its easy to see if people are really following you!!
    Would be easy for people that have alot of followers then you dont have to go through the whole followers list.

  13. I discovered you can see anyone's followed channels via third party websites using the API, and I've been told it's OK because that's public data.
    I'd like at least an option to prevent that.

  14. Please make a way to sort the people who you follow by when they streamed last as a option of sorting them out, I spent a 8-10 hour live stream going through over 2000 people I was following to unfollow the ones who have not streamed in 2 years plus, I ended up removing around 222 people funny number, they didnt stream in 2-5 years but I was loyally following them.
    Wish there was a way to contact them to see if they will return or something. Or get an email from twitch if they ever stream again so I…

  18. why is there a limit to how many channels we're allowed to follow? I find it frustrating i'm having to unfollow streamers every week or so to follow new channels. while my taste has changed in last 3 years i'd rather not unfollow those streamers and some streamers don't log in as often as they used to i'd still rather know when they do.

  19. As I can see for myself and on the numbers under the streams I watch I noticed that often the number of follows is about 100x higher than the actual views and so I would recommend to remove inactive users in a process similar like follows:

    1. After not watching a followed streamer for let's say 1 month the user gets a notification email that he is inactive for this specific channel and can be unfollowed if inactive for much longer.

    2. After let's say 2 or 3 months of not watching a channel the user gets an email that states that…

  20. I've noticed that a lot of viewers do not like to be "called out" / thanked when they follow, which leads to them not following streamers who have follow alerts on or thank their followers. An option for when you click the follow button for your follow to be "silent" would be great.

    This benifits the viewer as they will stay anonymous until they want to chat, and this benifits the streamer as they will gain more followers than previous.
