Pronoun bio field and chat integration
Following up my comment on https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310210-discover/suggestions/42218083-pronouns-prefix
It would be great if there were a dedicated Bio field in which we could put our pronouns, and a chat feature similar to the functionality provided by https://pronouns.alejo.io/ to display pronouns right alongside names in chat. This could also be used to populate a tag-like display near the streamer's name.
Tags for streamers are a start, but I'd like to be able to consult someone's bio (if they choose to disclose pronouns) so I can refer to them properly when they're not currently streaming and be able to refer to viewers properly.
kunne man evt. gøre så man som streamer og moderator, i hvert fald kan se om brugeren er hankøn, hunkøn. det kunne gøre det lidt nemmere at tage imod en seer på kanalen i form af et f.eks Heej fyr, eller heey Girl.
This would be amazing to have built into twitch - everytime twitch has a major update, the browser plug-in workarounds break
See, I would LOVE to see this be added, especially since it's so easy to do, but we're talking about Twitch here so I do not expect it to be added even though I would love it.
We need this, also please report the comment below me
Every single social media or messaging service under the sun has it these days, simply adding the option to set it in one's profile and then storing it, not as a string, but just as a set of values corresponding to pronouns. (So trolls can't set theirs as "attack/helicopter")
Yes please!! It would be a great option to have!
This would make the audience/streamer interaction experience so much more comfortable for everyone. It's such a simple thing too, so surely Twitch can do it!
It would be great to have this as an integrated twitch feature!
Yes! Third party apps are great and all but they don't work on all devices. Even for cis folks, no one likes being misgendered. If LinkedIn can do it, Twitch easily can.
Add a feature to identify our pronouns as a broadcaster on our "About" page or next to our broadcaster name.
As Twitch is a huge supporter of the LGBTQIA+ community and its Pride Month, it would be a great idea to end the month on a high note, or for June next year.
Thanks in advance, that would be great!
Need this asap, kinda sad we don't have it now already. having the extension is nice and all but its an extra step we don't need for identity visibility. If not added twitch is cringay
we shouldn't need to use an extension for this to address chat and streamers appropriately in conversations. this should be STANDARD. get with the times.
@GiraffeInAStorm Little tags beside usernames in chat, so that everyone can see each others pronouns wether it's a community member or the streamer.
So I can better understand this post, are you talking about tags when you ARE the streamer. Like on YOUR stream? If not (like if you're just a viewer), even if you're male or female (not trans and/or non-binary) you still can't really tell based off a username. Therefor I'm a bit confused.
@Ferrari_Fire in what version of BTV/7TV as neither of these on their stable channels provude "pronouns" as a function. You might be able to rename/nickname someone with their username[pronouns] but that isn't the user themselves just having the information proffered automatically as suggested.
Anyone looking for this you can install BetterTV and 7TV apps and they do this for you
It's not even only affecting trans/non binary people. You just cant tell the pronoun by a username. Would be great to have a badge which you can activate similar to the badges that show that you muted the stream.
I think it's a good idea to have a gender icon near our username (mostly in chats), it's a small touch that will be a very good improvement. It's kinda hard, not having a real name or a real picture, to know who are you talking to, male, female, I'm not going further, at least male or female for the start. You don't want to insult anyone, and you don't know what that person might be, and it's pretty hard to communicate with people without knowing how to address them. Or at least, let us choose.
This is long overdue!
I was really impressed to see the attention to Safety and Acceptance at the cons and am shocked this is still not some sort of feature w.r.t. Twitch.
