  1. There has been a recent rise in streamers misusing the tag system, most noticeably with non-Vtubers using the Vtuber tag. This makes discoverability more difficult for both streamers who are actually Vtubers, and viewers trying to use the tag system to find Vtubers. Even prominent streamers are misusing tags, so this behavior has been spreading. I'd like to ask Twitch staff to please enforce action on the misuse of tags to help the streamers and viewers who are using the tag system as intended. Banning streamers from using specific tags they have been caught and verified to be abusing them…

    Hi, thanks for flagging this and sharing your suggestion.

    We share and understand your concerns about how the intentional, repeated misuse of tags can undermine the purpose of the tags product itself.  Tags are an important discoverability feature for communities, and a powerful way for all Creators—but especially those that are underrepresented—to express their personal identity and creative vision for their content.

    We also do not feel Twitch should be the judge of Creators’ personal or creative identity, so we typically only enforce against the misuse of tags when it is associated with other behavior that violates our Community Guidelines such as hateful conduct or harassment.

    That said, as the VTuber community’s experience demonstrates, there are limitations to this approach and we are actively investigating additional steps we can take to protect and improve the integrity of the tags feature at scale, without infringing on good faith Creators’ personal choice…

  2. Anonymous sub-gifts should be able to be seen by the Streamer so they can determine if a ban should be possible. A female streamer I watch is being harrassed through Anonymous gifted subs to Twitch names of a sexual nature as well as threatening names of physical harm. Let me be clear, this isn't in the TTS message, it's an actual Twitch account name being used to target and harass her. There needs to be a better way to report these people, ban their card use by Twitch, or prevent them from gifting by the streamer. This is a literal…

  3. Flag/Report a stream team for review.

    Recently my community has come under attack by members representing a stream team. While these individual accounts can be blocked/banned. The stream team they are representing seems to continue to harass a specific target group/class of streamers. They are attempting to use bully/harassment methods in an attempt to force this group/class of streamers to join their stream team. I would Like an option to report groups like this.

  4. There has to be a better way before going into suspension of an account for something said either in private or public chats. I have experience 3 different people from the LGTBQ+ community be hate reported and suspended for "unsolicited sexual advances" and this being automated is a huge problem as the community can be targeted, you need to have person review this kind of reports before suspending as its not fair for people to get suspensions on the word of a report

  5. Summary:
    On the "Block this user" selection screen after reporting a clip, I would like it to be clear which users are specifically targeted for blocking.

    Details:
    I was reporting a clip created by a malicious user.
    (Specifically, clips created with misleading titles that make it seem as if the channel owner is misbehaving, even though they have nothing to do with the actual video content being clipped.)

    I intended to report the affected clip and the user who created the clip.

    After I finished reporting the clip, I was presented with a "Block this user" selection screen. The text…

  6. I often have to report spam bots or onlyfans advertising bots. Now I have to enter my e-mail address every time I want to report a bot.

    Please remove the e-mail field or prefill the field with the e-mail address stored in my account.

    Having to fill in the field every time is very annoying and prevents you from reporting accounts that spam users with ads or other things.

  7. Some kind of tool in Settings to let stream viewers automatically block (better still, automatically report as well) these occasional "anonymous Whisper senders" who send out their tiny url links to their OnlyFans websites.
    I don't come to Twitch looking for *, and I'm sure none of us want these random whispers that somehow still circumvent the Block strangers setting from sending us whispers.
    Does Twitch actually allow people to anonymously send these "
    * advertising whispers", or are they breahing Twitch ToS/EULA ?
    Myself and others I know are tired of seeing these things randomly pop up.
    Is…

  8. As the simulcast policy has changed since the last TwitchCon, please add "simulcast violation" to the list for efficient reporting.
    Even when the policy was changed after August last year, many affiliate/partner streamers continued to simulcast in violation of the contract.
    Even when all streamers were banned from simulcasting after last June, many streamers continued simulcasting without prior permission or in violation of their affiliate/partner agreements.
    To date, there have been no cases of streamers being sanctioned for simulcasting.
    So it seems that many streamers are abusing the policy and simulcasting.
    Even now, many streamers are simulcasting in violation of…

  9. Many streamers display videos on screen in violation of copyright.
    (movies, animations, tv programs, etc.)
    However, the copyright holder does not know this.
    Allow viewers to report copyright infringements.

  10. Clapping your **** together (aka your genitals) should not be allowed and not wearing a top is also breaking the rule 'Emphasizing Genitals'. The streamer in question is AsianBunnyX and her floppy **** and ******* skin is showing every stream

  12. As the number of streamers who conduct simulcasting (multi streams) without prior permission or in violation of affiliate/partner agreements increases,

  13. i reported a streamer for telling me to "kill yourself" live on stream, it has been at least three months, I've heard nothing back, no tickets were given for my report, there were no way for me to follow it up, nothing was done against the streamer, when i send email to the customer support, they told me to use proper channel for submitting a report, even though i explicitly stated that i had reported the channel and nothing was done.

  14. As twitch terms and conditions changed in June, all streamers cannot do Simulcasting (multistream). However, not only revenue-generating streamers, but also many streamers are Simulcasting (multistream) without prior permission from Twitch.
    Why aren't streamers who are simulcasting (multistream) in violation of the terms and conditions punished?
    We ask that streamers who are generating revenue be immediately terminated and temporarily suspended for violating the terms and conditions.
    Also, please add Simulcasting (multistream) to your reporting categories.
    Change the terms again to allow Simulcasting (multistream) only for regular streamers and prohibit Simulcasting (multistream) for monetized streamers.

  16. The batch reporting tool is a good start, but it's not very useful. Please add a select all option and enable us to select a single report reason and add details to report all users at once instead of having to select each and every user. It's extremely tedious and time consuming when trying to report dozens or even hundreds or thousands of bots.

  17. The safety button on the dashboard just logs you out without warning, and when I sign back in, it treats computer I'm using like a new device requireing extra authentifications. It's the worst time for an inconvienience like that when your trying to deal with a major safety issue.
    Speaking of which, there's a cocacola advertisement currently running that isn increadibly louder than all the other ads you run, and it hurt my ears a lot

    More Info Needed  ·  Ana responded

    Hi there,

    Could you please clarify what safety button you're referring to? Is it the Safety Center link towards the bottom of the Creator Dashboard menu? If so, I wasn't able to replicate the issue with it signing me out, when clicking it. Furthermore, I was curious to know what you are trying to access, to see if I can help clarify. Thank you!

  18. Remove the report button.

    Why not? It's just a 'feel good' button. I keep reporting phishing scammers, cheaters, and use of viewbots.

    Does Twitch do anything to stop them? Nope. I've flagged 1000 phishing(Not exaggeration) imposter accounts. They're still going.

    I've flagged for cheating, with the specific rule, with the link to the said rule that the cheater is breaking and nothing happens.

    The phishing scammers make a new one as one is taken down. No real way to prevent this menace.

    The viewbots are quite obvious with looped video streams advertising a website or is to another phishing scam.

  19. Twitch's complaints system is completely ineffective in dealing with DMCA violations.

    It's part of Twitch's rules, that Twitch considers complaints against DMCA violations only from copyright holders. But how copyright holders could reach small channels, for 5-10 viewer? Of course they can't! And any day, any night i can see a dozens of active channels that broadcast movies and TV series without any rights to do so, grossly violating their user agreements with Twitch and DMCA, but i can't even report them for this.

    If I want to complain about a violation of DMCA, I'm redirected to pages with lists…

  20. Some streamers, such as 39Daph, have really offensive stream titles … Other streamers, such as Amouranth or TheDanDangler, have really offensive stream content. But there doesn’t seem to be a way to report them for offensive content or titles. It is really strange that Twitch doesn’t have offensive content as a ‘reason’ for reporting streamers.
