  1. Hello, I have felt like there are a few things that have been concerning for small streamers in regards to some of the ways their account/channels in particular have been handled. Being aware that putting out content on the internet brings a platform for all types of eyes which in turn puts creators at a risk for various sorts of individuals who come in and out of their streams who may have ill intentions. There have been a few instances where creators feel they were singled out. Harassment being an example I personally feel should be something that, if possible,…

  2. For the pass couple of months Traditional Chinese community has been suffering from unreasonable suspension by typing in chat which hasn't violate the "hateful conduct and harassment" from twitch community guidelines. Suspension reasons contains hateful speech, sexual harassment, etc.

    For example, cursing in Chinese might have get you banned for 7 days plus, but the same meaning in English or other language will not get punished. Certain user even recieve suspension from chatting topics which is "related to streaming content" that has hardly even reach the boundries of communities guidelines.

    It's literally taking weeks or months to get any feedback…

  3. There are just too many virtual casino streams going on out there.
    They are obviously not regulated by anyone, as there is another new casino every day, with a new domain, new look, but the scheme is the same (like a hydra, one head is being chopped, but two more arise).
    Online casinos are no better than any crypto scam or pyramid scheme, they rob people out of their money and they are banned by law in most countries.
    I don't understand why Twitch is letting this slide, as this is obviously harmful to people and community.
    Please, ban online…

  4. I have seen so many ridiculous emotes get removed. Middle fingers, a butt shaking, dancing are not offensive and it is absolutely childish to ban an emote that is literally just pixels showing things that every iPhone and Android have (the middle finger)

  5. I don't know, if I am right here. I am a new streamer on Twitch and someone was in the chat and took my number to request a call back. So I was called from 10 different numbers or more during the stream. Then I said, that I will stop here, because I can't work like this and someone commented: Defeated. It is all becaus people want to stop other people from streaming. How could that happen here? Do something against these idiots.

  6. The writing is on the wall, and the fall of twitch is upon us. Kick out here poaching the best streamers for literal generations of wealth, while twitch still pinching pennies and handing out bowls of soup to their partners; a far cry from bags of money.
    Since twitch has been steadily deteriorating in rules/moderation/layout&discoverability, if they were to pull the plug right now to stop the bleeding, they could donate a healthy sum of their remaining coffers and assets to the greatest charity humanity has ever created - the Jeff Bezos Space-travelling Cueball.
    At least the creators migrating away…

  7. Dear All,
    I would like to raise the subject of negative behavior of some members of the Polish Twitch community and especially target Polish creators who intentionally make hurtful comments to other creators and then use the method of covering themselves with the words "it was about GTA RP for a joke". This is unfortunately a common phenomenon among some users of the platform and poses a serious threat to the positive atmosphere on Twitch.
    Attacks and insults to other users, especially in live public statements, are unacceptable. They should be condemned and a reason to block such a user.…

  9. This suggestion is based on PositiveIona's idea at https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/933812-safety/suggestions/44529945-sans-serif-fonts

    However, the suggestion to use serif-fonts to resolve the lower case 'l' vs upper case 'I' problem (to clarify the first one is an 'L' and the second one is an 'i') will make the platform less accessible for certain people, ESPECIALLY those with dyslexia. So you'd just be replacing one problem with an entirely new one.

    I'd like to propose that, instead of adding serifs, we should find a font that distinguishes the letters more clearly whilst still being sans-serif.
    Some examples include: Verdana, Tahoma, Trebuchet, or Open-Dyslexic; though I'm…

  10. Hello,

    I recetnly found my twitch content (my VODs) on youtube uploaded not by me and it seems i am not the only one.

    Is there anything twitch could provide to help getting that content down? I already filed a copyright strike. One of my problems is that some of the VODs are not up on my channel anymore.

    I can also not see any option to contact the support with this question. maybe a short answer (no matter if it is "we cannot help" or "do this") would be helpfull in the FAQ.

  12. I was not sure what category this fit into but my dilemma is this.
    For the specific games I and many others live stream there is a constant issue involving stream sniping even if you ban someone they can still watch your stream. The even bigger problem is that they can watch in a private or "incognito" tab/window and the username appears to be something like 324098635, A098371192, or x938649236x etc. I know this because me and my moderators tested this in my offline chat to see who was appearing under "Viewers in Chat" and we noticed this pattern.

  13. Dear Stream Colleagues.
    Twitch Ban headless streamers, those who are offline themselves.
    25 streamers Banned Were without any proof of live.

    Copy from a Banned streamer. ( Name i am know it keep it for me self )
    DANGER!!!
    There is currently a group (usually 20-30 people) on Twitch who go into small streams and be friendly there and then start posting swastikas and insults. The people belong to the NWO and communicate on Telegram and choose victims on Twitch together.

    Twitch sometimes bans the respective streamers because the group takes screenshots of them and sends them to Twitch.

  14. Last night, I was watching a stream and during the stream, someone called me a b!tch. I was offended by it to the point where I told the streamer about it privately and other people he was affiliated with. Honestly, people should be suspended or banned for bullying other people but apparently Twitch is letting it go and it's getting out of hand real fast. I'd thought about killing myself if Twitch didn't do anything about it. If you guys want proof that the bullying/harassment is getting out of hand. Copy and paste the URL into your address bar and…

  15. Earlier today was victim to a hacked game account after following a link in the description of a channel, normally i do tend to be very careful but i was caught out by the fact it was top trending/most viewers of that specific game. By using a clip from an official stream they managed to dupe myself and probably plenty others. Now the blame is definitely on myself for not double checking but i do feel there must be a simple way to avoid these type of "con's" ... even if just putting a sizable delay on the visible amount…

  16. I have suffered wickedness and cyberbullying on Twitch, some that have marked me very deeply and there is a streamer who makes me stalked by his users, I would like that as in other social networks users who are banned from my private profile no longer read the my messages in other people's chats so I can feel safe elsewhere.
    Because now if I ban a person from my profile I don't see him but he continues to see me in chat elsewhere and I would like him to never see anything of me again, I hope Twitch implements this.

  17. In general, don't recommend sexually explicit streams to people - but when you do, don't play their stream when users are redirected after reporting and blocking them.

  18. Having hook-nosed goblin bankers is blatant anti-Jew propaganda, it has always been. This new game only pushes this even further. I feel like antisemetism is once again on the rise, and having these caricatures walking around in a game is seriously concerning.

    I feel like even if this wasn’t intentional, it still should not have happened, especially after already have been warned. They could have at least changed the hook noses.

    Now we’re allowing the streaming of a game with these undertones, and keeping a known hateful person’s work in the spotlight.

  19. Everytime 2 players play eachother, they should block the stream from the other streamer that is watching them. IP address connection or something. since it has something to do with video connection. Maybe ask other streaming platforms if they have fixed it. See if they have any ideas. Don't they have some kind of connection on the game when two people are connected together, ask the company of the game to help you with this so it can ban other players from looking onto their enemies stream. Have it where connections between stream watchers and people on microphones that are…

  20. There's streamers currently suffering from attacks from accounts impersonating them. The usernames these attackers have contains words like "Prostidute", "Perverted", "Suicide", "Naked", and more explicit terms next to the Streamers' names. These streamers have had no chance to get support from Twitch.

    Saying "ignore them" or "report them" does NOT work, because the accounts keep appearing with new, more outrageous, names. Streamers report more than 50 accounts appearing. This type of harrassment can get someone killed, there needs to be serious punishment to the IP owner.
