  1. I believe that Twitch should add REGEX support for Automod "Blocked words and phrases". This would be a very helpful feature for chat moderation since a lot of users can easily get past the blocked term by intentionally misspelling a word. This would also allow streamers to enforce English only characters in chat. I'm aware that twitch allows using the "*" wildcard but in many instances this is simply not enough.

  2. Currently the only possibility for managing links is to disable them all together. This replaces them with '***' in chat for everyone but the sender. Add an alternative to make AutoModerator hold all links for review instead so mods can allow them on a case to case basis. If no mod is there the result would be the same, no links in chat.

  3. As a moderator of a few channels, we've had a massive issue with one particular troll using a VPN to evade bans. This is a massive issue for us because; this user will spam hateful messages, racist slurs, bullying/harassment and even spam the streamer's private personal info. This has been such an issue, that some people I know have had to take a long break from streaming or quit altogether!

    I implore you Twitch. Please add an option to enable Phone number verification!
    I believe this will strongly deter users from ban evading, as it commonly costs to use phone…

  5. =The Idea=

    Have a toggle switch in auto-mod options for streamer to opt-in or out.

    If opted in:
    Any accounts that were banned in 3 other streamer's chats in the past 72 hrs will have their messages auto-held until approved.

    If opted out:
    No change from current moderation.

    =Uses=
    - Chat bots from follow websites would have all their messages held after 3 streamers ban them. This will prevent a significant amount of spam from follow bots and not allow their messages unless the streamer opted out.
    - General trolls. Some people like to join chats just to harass streamers.…

  6. A few words can be used for good or bad in many different contexts. When we get a message on a good context and we allow the message, we are adding the word on the permitList which can be dangerous if used on a wrong scenario.

    Example: ***.
    Good scenario: My sleep schedule is *
    ** right now.
    Bad Scenario: This streamer is ******.

    If the good message comes first and then the bad message, the second message will not be blocked by automod.

    Idea: having a third option, other than accept and deny message, on automod to allow…

  7. There is a checkbox in "Channel & Videos" tab of your channel settings, called "Opt out of globally banned words filter".

    I had it enabled since I started streaming a month ago. And today I discovered, that it does not work - some words, like "tranny" for example, are still replaces with asterisks to everyone else in chat. I was disappointed.

    I despise any form of censorship. When I come to other streams and I see their chat rules "Be nice, no spam..." - I respect the rules. Its their choice. Why can't Twitch respect my own choice to treat…

  8. Recently I had to permit the term of "ow" when someone wanted to simply type "How are you <3" on a stream. This rather baffled me. I have since found similarly harmless words have triggered very low levels of automod sensitivity despite being rather simple words. Someone on reddit thankfully screenshotted some examples of the settings being used for the How are you <3 instance and has uploaded them for easy viewing:

    Settings: https://i.imgur.com/3vLFx3Z.png
    Results: https://i.imgur.com/VYjp4Sj.png

    I can also state that I've had to permit the word 'dinosaur' on the same levels of sensitivity. I think it AutoMod should be…

  9. Had a message come across automod that used the n word, so obviously I denied the message. However, after denying an automod message it is from what I can see lost forever. I wanted to ban the user or at least time them out for a few days with no luck. I feel a sense of urgency with automod notifications so it seemed reasonable to deny it quickly. It would be nice to add denied messages to the log for further moderator action.

  10. If a viewer breaks a rule 3 (or some set amount of) times in chat, Automod should then go ahead and ban the user permanently for the streamer.

  11. On a Hungarian language for channel points and predictions some words are restricted and handled as it would be a swear word in English.

    "Vagy" means in Hungarian "or" or "be". I wrote this words in Hungarian:

    "Ha új vagy". Means if you are new.

    But I can not create this reward as I get this error message: "*This is not compliant with our content guidelines."

    Tell me what guidelines is against the Hungarian word "vagy"?

    And there are more words which is moderated!

    Please remove automatic moderation on this tools ASAP! We can not create proper content for our…

  12. It would be nice to get some examples of what will be removed for each filter level, on each filter topic. The info given at the "learn more" page is rather vague, and as someone who's now been given 8 filter topics instead of 4, I'd like to see some clearer info on what each filter level actually does now that the topics are a lot more specific.

  13. Currently the AutoMod bot does not allow for timeouts, whitelisting of URLs and more. I would love to drop 3rd party bot moderation tools all together, but the current settings of AutoMod do not provide enough features to make it a viable means for moderation.

    For instance, non-vips cannot post clips if I block hyperlinks as there is no way to whitelist the URL for it.

    Please consider adding more features to AutoMod.

  14. Twitch has launched new Auto-Mod settings, and included Misogyny, while failing to include a category for Misandry.

    Misandry is defined as; dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against men (i.e. the male ***).

    This description is perfect for the failures of Twitch in recognising the hourly verbal abuse and violence that men experience on their platform.

    It is worse that this violence against men is completely ignored by Twitch, and Twitch allows it to happen.

    I believe Twitch's behaviour is illegal, as they are discriminating against all men based on their gender.

    What will Twitch do to remedy this…

  15. Rather than removing emotes, create a chat filter that checks
    emote tags. When approving emotes, apply rating tag to emotes that could be considered "sexual/explicit", these would be filtered out in channels that haven't enabled the 18+ notification.

  16. Add the Russian language to AutoMod, because I am a Russian-speaking streamer and I want to add this function, because there are viewers who offend in Russian with profanity in chat and I want AutoMod to delay them in a private message and in a chat. Thank you for understanding.

  17. Messages flagged by AutoMod are pinned to the bottom of the chat till assessed by a moderator or by the streamer.

  18. 많은 기회를 줬음에도 불구하고 방송 규칙을 지키지 않아 더이상 그 시청자가 방송을 즐기는 것을 용납하지 못해 강제퇴장을 줬지만 채팅만 못 칠 뿐 방송과 도네는 가능하여 자신의 잘못을 전혀 반성하지 않습니다.
    방송인에게 스트리스를 주어 더이상 보고싶지 않은 시청자인데 방송을 보고 있다고 생각하니 너무 기분 나쁩니다.
    영구퇴장 된 시청자는 더이상 방송에 들어올 수 없게 해주세요

  19. This is no an idea this is purely a complaint as every other method of getting in touch about this issue has been ignored and it is really starting to get on my nerves.
    I have had my account since march 2014 but only started streaming in Jan of 2019. In all that time i have never had any issues with my name being auto modded until around 2 months ago when it started to get auto modded everywhere, this ruins my raids, my general interaction in peoples chats because if someone replies to me with my name, one of…

  20. So I'm not sure in which cases the wildcard-term ban doesn't work correctly, but on a channel I'm moderating we would like to block the "^^" smiley, unfortunately blocking "*^^", "^^*" or "*^^*" doesn't solve the problem. I suspect that there is a general problem with special characters in wildcard terms.
