Opt-out of event emotes/hide or delete emotes you've unlocked
Please allow us to opt-out of events that gift emotes when another user takes an action. Many of the recent events (e.g. HyperScape, K-Pop, Hispanic Heritage Month, etc.) have emotes that I don't want or find offensive, but I have no choice on whether they're added to my emote list when another user subs or cheers.
I suggest a tick box on the pop-up that appears over a stream to let you know about a new event that lets you choose to not receive any of the event's emotes. Alternatively or in addition, a section of the settings that has options for the current event. This section should also include a way to hide or permanently remove emotes from your emote list by or within an event category (e.g. HyperScapeEmotes, StreamWithPride, etc.) or individual emotes within the Unlocked and Global categories. Emotes that are removed or hidden should not be accessible by auto-complete. Removal of emotes should also allow simple feedback on the reason--offensive, unwanted, etc.
While this suggestion isn't intended to just let people cull their emote list to a reasonable size, it would also function for that purpose. Twitch may also be able to collect data on which emotes are found offensive or unwanted by a significant portion of their userbase, and perhaps make better decisions on future emotes as well as remove emotes that generate too much negative feedback.
As others have said there are many emotes I'll never be using. Trying to go through a list half full of unwanted event emotes is especially arduous on mobile or when watching on my console.
I will literally take any option to remove emotes I never wanted and will never use from my selection. Also, the "frequently used" box shouldn't contain emotes I've never used - that literally doesn't make sense.
Please, please, please! I would really like the option to collect emotes, but remove them from searches as well. The HypeTrain emotes flood my search and prevent me from finding emotes from creators, for example.
There's a few bit emotes I have from users I no longer support/ they've deleted their channel. It'd be nice to not be reminded of them every time I pull up an emote with a similar name
I just want to be able to hide some of the "Hype" emotes since I don't use most of them and just don't want to accidentally pick one
This! I followed a couple of channels with generic/stolen emotes and I'd love to be able to delete them as I don't use them.
yeah I absolutely approve this idea. I hate having an emote from someone I no longer subscribed to.
Yes!!! This is a 100% solid idea. One of the best suggestions I have seen to be honest.
This is something I 100% want. There are some event emotes that I just don't want to get, and other emotes that I want to hide from my list.
Having to always scroll through emotes I don't want/don't like just to get to the emotes I DO want annoys me, so I would love for this to be a feature.
Suggesting a system to just hide emotes as a potentially simpler solution. When hiding an emote the UI could ask the user for feedback on why they don't like it.
A "Your Emotes" section in the user settings that shows your collection with a simple show/hide button that removes it from the emote panel in chat.
