Removing Bit Emotes
In a perfect world, everyone would be friends and get along. However for various reasons people sometimes leave communities they have earned bit emotes in. Then the bit emotes remain forever as a constant reminder. People should have the ability to remove bit emotes from certain streamers.
This has been a desired feature for a couple years now. I’ve got a couple people who I no longer associate with due to really nasty falling outs and their emotes still pop up when I go to use either my own or other channels. It’s a nigh constant reminder of the people who hurt me and my friends and even though I’ve blocked and unfollowed them their emotes still show up in my lists. Using the block feature to remove bit emotes would be the easiest implementation with as little UX impact as possible.
Twitch / Amazon - we need to be able to remove some bit emotes from streamers we no longer associate with, streamers that ditched us since the world opened back up, etc.
You describe it perfectly, and it sucks that you can't remove them - even if you have the streamer blocked. You should have the ability to remove them or permanently hide them.
Hey Twitch! It would be amazing to have a feature where you can remove or hide emotes that we dont wanna use and have control over it. I been in a relationship with a streamer for 6 years and i got 3 bit emotes and I'm constantly reminded of him! He even post new profile pictures that shows up with his emotes when I'm trying to use other streamers. Please please please let us have control of our emotes
Hey developers! I had a thought.
Currently, if you block someone and they follow you, it causes them to unfollow you.
What about an additional effect where if you block someone, their bit emotes are removed?
This would mean not having to build an emote removal UI and whatever structural changes and API changes that may entail.
Another advantage would be if I were the streamer and someone decided they wanted me to unexist enough to block me, I wouldn't want them to go around using my emotes anyway.
need this. got tons of bit emotes from people I don't watch anymore cluttering up my emotes.
It's a bit ridiculous that this feature hasn't been added yet, look at all the troubled people in the comments begging Twitch to add this. Let us block bit emotes from people we no longer wish to associate with!
i can offer a workaround if you use ublock origin. use the picker tool to remove the emote you don't want to see. it writes an individual filter to your preferences and disables loading of that image url.
of course this will not work if you're on mobile and use the app.
Being able to control and organize what emotes you have available to you would be a powerful improvement to stream chat experience across the platform. If not this, then at LEAST provide the ability to automatically remove any and all emotes, bit emotes included, from a user you've blocked. After all, if you're given the ability to cut interaction with a user, shouldn't that also mean any content of theirs available outside their channel?
It really is a shame this suggestion has been up for more than 2 years with relatively consistent comments, yet with no attention spared...
An Option in the settings like hide all bit badge emotes would be great and enable it off or on would be a great option if possible.
Please do this. I have to see the emotes from my abusive ex fiancé every time I try to look through my emotes. The option to hide or remove them would be a real blessing to stop flashbacks.
This really needs to be a thing. Even just being able to visually hide said emotes from your menu would be a major difference.
I got myself banned from one of my favorite channels because I made some serious mistakes. I am still in the process of getting over the emotional trauma of this event, and having to see the streamer's icon and name in my emote menu on account of a single bit emote I had earned before being banned is incredibly painful. It's just another reason I've been mostly avoiding Twitch altogether in recent months.
I'm trying to move on, and it would be an immense help if I could just hide that emote, and the channel's tab, from the menu.
Please make this happen! So done seeing bit emotes for people I don't want to watch anymore!
I have had some bad interactions with streamers. I am reminded of bad things when the Bits emote is always visible in the emote list.
This is one of the reasons that detracts from a pleasant experience at twitch.
Please add the ability to remove the Bits emote when I unfollow a streamer.
Yeah, I completely agree. It bugs me so much that bit emotes from streamers give me anxious thoughts and I can't do anything about it beside not looking at emotes, ever.
Somewhere in the settings just make it so we can hide emotes, or remove them entirely from within the inventory. A huge quality of life thing that doesn't really do anything wrong, just makes some if not a lot of people feel better.
I BEG YOU TWITCH: an option to delete unwanted Twitch Bits reward Emotes. I get anxiety every time I see one from a streamer I no longer want to be associated with!! (2)
agreeeed, me and a now exfriend just went separate ways and I'm kinda annoyed that I have that ONE emote that I dont want anymore just staring at me
I would really like the option to be added to hide or remove emotes earned by giving bits. Having just a single emote among the others I sub to is quite annoying.
Fingers crossed twitch sees this and does something to help us or one of the emote extensions adds an option to be able to do it.
Would personally really like this option added :) had a falling out with someone and would like to get rid of the bit emote I have from them. This really needs to be added soon.
One easy addition they could add:
When you are subscribed to a streamer, or have bit-emotes from that streamer, you have a section for that streamer with their icon, name and the ⋮ button.
Pressing the ⋮ button, you get the option to report the emotes. But they could here add an option to hide this streamer from the list. Then have another general ⋮ for the whole emote-menu itself where you get an option to show a list of streamers you've hidden from the list so far so you can unhide them.
This wouldn't hide the emotes in the chat, and their emotes could perhaps still show up on the emote-menu if you're on their stream still. This is specifically about hiding their section on your emote-menu when you're not on their stream (being a subscriber to them, or paid bits for emotes).
When a section is hidden, those emotes can also be removed from the often used emotes section. Emotes unlocked by channel points can remain in the list since those will go away in less than 24 hours anyway.
This still doesn't allow you to hide a specific emote either. But just like how when you report an emote, and you get to select it, you could also have a second option for hiding a specific emote, and then getting to select it.
