Apply emote ToS consistently.
Recently, I reached out to Twitch support regarding Follower emotes as I did not have access to them following an infraction from March. As it had been well over the 60 day period and I still did not have access, I decided I would ask support what was going on with it. After a couple days I received a response basically restating the guidelines for Follower emotes.
However, in addition to this response, I noticed that 2 of my emotes which had been approved already had been removed, one for "sexual content" and the other for "political imagery." I was upset about the first one being removed as there was nothing sexual about the emote itself; however, it was from the Ankha video by Zone which is a sexual video, so I was not too upset. I was far more upset about my emote with a Soviet Ushanka being removed, as there are many, MANY channels on Twitch, most far larger than mine, who utilize similar imagery in their emotes. The inconsistency is frustrating to say the least. Twitch support provided no further insight as to why the ToS applied to me but not to others, and I feel like I am in a worse situation than when I had reached out to them in the first place. Their final email directed me here, so I am airing out my frustrations.
This whole situation is unprofessional and I feel I have been fighting an uphill battle with Twitch staff since I first started my channel. The Twitch support and moderations teams must do better. Apply your ToS consistently.
