  1. Right now I have to reload all the time in order to have the number of people in my stream up to date.

    It would be great if the list updated itself so that we know real time who is watching me.

  2. Hi, team! It's inconsistent that the Mod View has the capability to click a username on either Chat or Moderator Actions, and you get useful data for that user (messages / timeouts / bans / mod comments) but in Creator Dashboard usernames cannot be clicked in Activity Feed or Mod Actions. A broadcaster that wants to review a user's chat history needs to move into Mod View.

    Can the Channel Tools widget be added into Creator Dashboard?

  3. Hi, Usually in the past I could click on names in twitch chat and be able to see the views and follower of the channel, now I can't even see my own when I click on my name.

  4. When switching games mid-stream, it's a pain having to add in new tags for the new game. Would be nice to be able to set presets so that when changing games/categories, I can just click once to add in the new tags.

  5. As a streamer, I think it would be a good idea to implement a button to display the rules popup. Mostly it would be usable in scenarios of the rules change.

  6. In stream manager is it possible to have a sound alert when someone follows, Subs and sends bits to the streamer. in maybe content or settings tab. For us console users so we dont have to rely on something like WizeBot. That only lets you do sounds if you have premium account. And add our own sound.

  7. For those of us streaming directly from a console, it would be great to have a button that allows us to "hide" the stream screen while logging into servers? If I am playing a high kill game like DayZ for example, and I die and need to log back into my server, it would be cool to have a button I could press so that people can't see what server I'm loading into. We could preload a BRB picture that would pop up when the button is clicked.

  8. I've always disliked that you could only stream in one language when I speak multiple languages. So I was happy to see that you can add a language in tags now, but since there is the stream language too, it hasn't really fixed the issue. Example: I'm Norwegian, so I want Norwegians to find me, BUT if I put English in stream language (since I mostly speak English on stream), and Norwegian in tags, and people that search for Norwegian, they have to choose between two identical Norwegian tags when they search in tags; one "Norwegian" is Stream Language, and…

  9. I want games to switch auto title when you play multiple games so I won't have to go setting and change to the next game title.

  11. It would be nice to have an Emergency stop button or command (/stopstream for broadcaster/editors) in the dashboard. If someone else is streaming (with the stream key) and want to stop the stream and the current streamer refuses, then the channel owner can click that button (or use that command /stopstream), the stream stops and changes the stream key.

    This could be handy because when OBS crashes, it can take up to 5 minutes or longer to restart because it says there already is someone streaming.

    Please build this in ;)

  12. So as a content creator, most of us like to block out phrases to leak address and so forth, but me not realizing it can be public to mods if not set private, had it on public. I think it would be very helpful to be able to clear that so they cannot see the modded history. Thanks! :))

  13. I would love to have a setting for the opacity of the Broadcast Bar or to have the option to not show it also having the ability to let stream hear my team mates in game and not party

  14. So I had an idea to help make doing shout outs easier. A shout out button. Simply put in mod mode we just click on the raiders username, click the shout out button and done.

  15. We need two buttons to be able to activate on our security panel:

    +Only e-mail verified accounts can follow my account

    +Only accounts created for more than 24hrs can follow my account

    I sincerely believe that this would help prevent bot attacks or at least, be a shield for those already suffering from them to buy some time for Twitch admins to delete all bot accounts.

  16. Due to the overwhelming amount of bots attacking accounts on twitch, it seems only logical to me that this should be at least a provisional measure to help prevent the massive follow attacks.

    Like a timeout, we should be able to set this by either a button on the creator panel or a command on our chat, similar to the way we timeout a user. Something that could work like "/sfollow 600" for instance, to pause new follows for the next 10 minutes.

    I think it would help stressed streamers A LOT, since the most affected ones are small streamers…

  17. It would be great if we could make some customizable roles that allow some of our trusted viewers to have access to some of the aspects of a channel. For community run channels (like TwitchPlays channels), the broadcaster of the channel can't be managing every single thing like channel points or community goals. Being able to appoint someone with the ability to do that without necessarily logging in to the channel account or seeing financial information from the channel, would be most beneficial.

  18. I use a canned description for each series I'm streaming (different game or modpack). I'd love the stream description to be capable of storing several (perhaps 5-10) stream descriptions. Streamer would then have the choice of typing a description or selecting a saved one from a drop-down (combo box).

    It might be easiest to manage with a dialog box below the combo box ("Edit Saved"), where streamer could add a new saved description (perhaps pre-filled with current description), or edit or delete an existing saved description. It might be useful to include a "nickname" field, to make saves easier to…

  19. I usually stream between 3 different categories. Please, add either customizable buttons or maybe have it pull the last X amount categories streamed so I can just click instead of having to type out "Tom Clancy's The Division" so I can then click Division 2. (This may have been hyperbolized, but you get the idea)

    I think it would be a neat lil thing to have it pull either your last 5 or top 5 most streamed, or a mix.

  20. It would be nice if there was a way to customize what your stream will be called when you download the MP4 file, like a default format, for instance:

    [STREAM NAME]_[DATE] as an option

    You could also allow users to customize the date format to their liking. Me, personally, I like just doing 'MM-DD' because I can group them all by year later.

    It would save me a lot of time because with the way it is currently, the stream videos are by default named the random series of numbers and letters that designate the video's URL, so I have…
