  1. Since Body Painting has been established as a valid category on the platform, there has been a noticeable lack of encouragement from Twitch in creating a healthy community around it. This lack of support is further emphasized by the massive push back and public harassment of Body Painters online, including but not limited to: Organized hate raids by other streamers, Streamers sexualizing body painters on their own live streams, Public groups that organize mass reports on body painters, Lack of response by Twitch to counter the culture of continued degradation of women through objectification by viewers (including inappropriate usernames).

    Hey guys!

    There were some discussions that weren’t super applicable to feedback and I have gone ahead and removed them.

    We super appreciate the feedback and want to keep hearing your ideas. Please just keep it focused on bodypainting/body art community and feedback around that, over feedback on specific channels/users.

    If you have anyone who you are concerned about on Twitch or someone who you are worried about how they are acting on Twitch always feel empowered to report them so our team can further investigate the situation.

  3. For 9 months I have been reporting someone who has been harassing me over and over with NO response from Twitch. When will there be a real system in place to protect streamers??

    This person has made numerous accounts with usernames that have shared personal information including my phone number, addresses, and names of family members. I have reported, banned, blocked, and had my MODs do the same, but nothing has ever been done on Twitch's end.

    If others are going through this, I want to hear about it and what Twitch is going to do to help those of…

  4. I have reported over 600 fake troll accounts and yet STILL Twitch seem to refuse to do anything. NOW we find that if we complain or have a go at these trolls we can get banned ourselves ?

  5. When we block and ban someone they should not be allowed to watch our content anymore.

  6. This is directly copied from the proposal update from Jambo, which states as follows:

    "Twitch Safety Support - Update Proposal by Jambo


    1. UPDATED REPORTING TOOL
      Twitch’s reporting tool is outdated, and needs to be revamped. The biggest suggestion for this is to have a lesser detailed reporting still available on profiles but provide a link to something similar to submitting a ticket, but will allow the user to submit images as well as links (currently images cannot be uploaded with a report) be marked ‘high priority.’


    2. HAVE A DIRECT CONTACT EMAIL ADDRESS FOR PARTNERS
      Along with an updated reporting tool,…

  7. Is there a better way to filter or make sure that if I have my channel in Mature Audience only, that it is understood? Like can we have a little rating setting we can place or have it be better defined in the Topic/Category settings for streams? As well as if there is a way we can make sure it keeps the chat/audience of age?

  8. Anyone is currently able to access deleted Clips and VODs via a Twitch database that is open and accessible via the stream ID. This is incredibly dangerous, as personal information such as addresses, names, employment, etc., may have been accidentally disclosed on stream, and is now permanently saved for the public to access at anytime, even if the VOD or Clip is quickly deleted.

    PLEASE close this server access to the public for our safety!

  9. Twitch should offer a more in-depth mental health section that not only focuses on streamer health (i.e. suicide prevention/depression) but also the streamer/follower relationship. Offering resources for those who do not understand that the streamer cannot always respond/ may not share the same feelings as the viewer. Essentially, we need a "how to use Twitch in a healthy, responsible manner" section, to educate all parties involved.

  10. Keep cooking streams out of Just Chatting. It hurts the food and drink community if people can see cooking in a different category. Games are kept out of Just Chatting, so should cooking food focused streams.

  11. The new harassment policy sounds lovely. But, how can we be sure Twitch will actually enforce it? Many of us have experienced harassment from viewers as well as creators (hateful raids, etc) and nothing has ever been done. How can we trust you’re going to do something now?

  12. Twitch plans on soft-banning a handful of words in their next policy update, namely "simp", "incel", and "virgin", in an attempt to * down on ** harassment. They say it will only be in cases where they are used as insults but I want to get ahead of this since community outcry is already bubbling up.

    Banning individual words that are not slurs not only lumps them in with genuinely harmful words but also encourages an environment where context is devalued. The above three words are usually used in a joking manner, but I worry that shuffling them into the…

  13. This DMCA crap is getting out of hand!

    Now they are going to strike people for the music that was made to be played in video games?!

    Absolutely unacceptable.

    We are not going to start muting games, on top of muting music that we play in between games or downtime or AFK screens.
    Streamers don’t want awkward Dead air!

    Music has always been nice to play in the background since day one.
    And I have never seen any streamer ever take credit for the music that they were playing.
    We know who’s singing a song most of the time. What…

  14. There is nothing currently in TOS that prevents anyone with a criminal record in casting - including people who have been convicted of race, hate or crimes. As a private company, Twitch could make the step to update TOS to prevent people who have been convicted of race, hate or crimes from casting - and make a DBS part of the onboarding process (a DBS is mandatory for teachers working with children, people in the care industry etc - why not on twitch when children can create an account from the age of 13?) . It wouldn't solve the problem,…

  15. I have a friend who is a beginner streamer who has been banned and doesn't know why. Twitch only reported that he said something that is outside of his policy. I watch all of his lives and I don't remember any time he offended someone else. In addition to not making the reason clear, the platform does not give confidence to new streamers, making them question whether the platform is the best option for them to work. Not only that, I remember other cases in which Brazilian streamers were banned for stupid reasons. So I would like to leave the…

  16. Children watch your creators and I've come across some Chanel's that are showing more than they should, doing ****** acts on different equipment things that shouldn't be within a streaming platform such as twitch! When did twitch become the new onlyfans?! YOU REALLY NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT THESE "CREATORS" ARE PUTTING ON YOUR PLATFORM!!! MY SON ADORES TWITCH BUT THIS IS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!!!

  17. [SPA]

    Necesitamos un grupo de personas que se dedique a controlar de forma más activa la comunidad, y a la vez controlen que los creadores de contenido siguen todas las normas y directrices establecidas para la plataforma.

    Sería la mejor forma de aumentar la seguridad y la confianza de los usuarios para que todos puedan disfrutar de Twitch.

    ¿Tienen planteado crearlo? ¿Necesitáis gente?
    Deberíais ofrecer oportunidad de empleo para esto.

  18. There are some users that I have dealt with in the past that purposefully mis-identify trans/non-binary individuals and streamers. How will Twitch trust and safety board manage these users? Purposeful mis-identification is very hurtful, especially after being told the correct identity, and they outright are ignorant to it.

  20. it happens too much on this platform, streamers like sodapoppin directly insult viewers claiming his viewers are "retards and losers"
    well, its not pleasant experience hearing those things and if someone is disabled in someway might even feel sad or depressed hearing it
