Add a setting to disable auto-joining a raid.
I think a user-profile option to disable automatic joining of a raid would be a useful feature. Some channels have various reasons or incentives to staying in offline chat and sometimes you can't catch the whole stream and can't opt-out of the raid.
Until the feature is added, we could always boycott anyone who sponsors or runs an ad on a channel we're dumped into via raid, and make sure to tell those advertisers exactly why...
Is this still not a thing? I so want to sleep on stream, because a ton of them are interesting but sometimes too late for me, but the channels theey raid aren't always of videos or streamers that you can sleep to...
@Twitch, implement this already ffs
I tried FFZ, but this extension is too dirty.
It automatically change way too many behaviors and unnecessary features. Configure pages are also really messy that I don't know how to make sure FFZ only prevent auto-raid without messing up with any other things.
I still think Twitch needs to add a setting to disable auto-raid.
With FrankerFaceZ extension you can disable auto joining raids
Really? There shouldn't be any question about this. Opting out should be the default, not a nonexistent option.
if you add this keep in mind that blocked streamers should not be raided automatically (> play button |video player| click should be needed)
Comments in this topic about viewers sleeping and being woken up by loud streamers after a raid happens are the primary reason I almost never raid anyone after my streams. Please make this an option for people. Leave it defaulted to auto join, but make it an option for people to change it to opted out by default.
Defaulting it to auto-opt-out would kill the entire raid feature of twitch and is likely why this has not been implemented.
Watching a calm Twitcher for sleep with some Mario Party and waking up midnight after some Raids and Re-Raid to COD Kids yelling at each other is the sole reason I no longer watch Twitch before sleep anymore. Works as intended @Twitch?
How is this still not a thing?
I'd also like the option to opt out of raids on the TV app, that doesn't appear to exist at all.
Why is this still not a thing? Should be really easy to do. Surely there can be no argument here that giving users more control over how they use your platform is a good thing. In the meantime, there is a extension for Firefox - FrankerFaceZ. Looks like it can do a lot of other things as well, but I am using it just for that. Hope devs at twitch can fix that soon.
It's the most annoying thing ever. Like I don't care about other channels, just let me stay on the channel I want please?
Yeah, this option is definitely needed. Fell asleep watching a retro game stream and woke up to someone ranting about buying and using "whores" and going on about how covid is fake and just being used by the government and bill gates to scare us.
Or maybe a flag we can add into the url so we can be choosey about which raids to follow?
Please add this option.
Honestly, if this isn’t added, I will have to stop using Twitch soon. It’s messing with my sleep waking up to a yelling streamer 4 raids later.
yeah, because it's sooooo hard to hit the back button after a raid.
just use chatterino if you want to keep farming e-points to gamble with.
Sometimes I fall asleep watching a stream and what a horror it is to find myself on a LOUD STREAMER OR GAME while sleeping peacefully.
That would be great too because if the live stream I was watching ends my computer may also go into 'sleep' mode. But with the raids, the transmission of the stream continues and does not allow my computer to go to "sleep" which creates overconsumption of electricity and internet network (even longer than until the end of the stream I was watching before to sleep).
This option must therefore be integrated for the good of human beings:
1) so that they sleep better and peacefully
2) to limit energy consumption (at home consumption and internet network consumption)
start keeping muted the raided chanel , when the last stream was also muted
