  1. Adopting industry-standard child broadcasting PREVENTION measures
    to deter preteens from mobile streaming on Twitch (& predators targeting them):

    ✩ In short:
    • Implement a 25-50 follower requirement for mobile broadcasting.
    • Newcomer mobile-only adults can bypass this through ID-verification.
    • Uniquely on Twitch (among other major livestreaming services),
    underage users can presently pick up their phone, create an account and go live-streaming without restrictions – all in 2 minutes.


    ✩ In detail:

    • 1. CONTEXT:
    September 2022, Bloomberg report illustrates how Amazon's Twitch, uniquely so in contrast with competing broadcasting platforms,
    leads the video-service industry in widescale child-livestreaming and consequent…

  2. Currently, if I block a person on Twitch, they can still see my messages in Twitch chat. I think it would be a lot better if a person cannot see the messages of someone who has them blocked, in the same way I can't see their messages if I have them blocked. It should go both ways.

  3. Controversial yes - strip away the viewer count. Will prevent streamers cheating the system by buying viewers, will even the playing field. And those who don’t have a massive ego, won’t mind as will still see stats.

  4. Sorry but that was literally the stupidest TOS change you’ve made to date. I don’t want freaking **** on my twitch app and twitch should not be a site that hosts ****. And the fact that you’re well aware of how many minors use your app yet you still decided to allow sexual content is absolutely disgusting. And don’t try to use the “Well we’ll label it as sensitive content so kids don’t access it” excuse. Unless you have a valid way of verifying age, kids CAN and WILL easily bypass these warning and watch these sexual streams. This was…

  5. Just as we can follow a category, it would be nice to be able to "block" a category so that it does not recommend or see channels that are playing those games.

  6. Giving our phone numbers to you has proven unsafe and I believe will be shown again to be unsafe again in the future with leaks or the potential to sell our personal information.

    With that being said, I have noticed that we cannot even follow some channels without giving you such a personal piece of information.

    I strongly ask for a better system that guarantees not only streamer's safety but also viewers, one where we do not have to give a piece of personal information we do not want to give you or we can't as in some cases phone…

  7. Its well past time Twitch recognizes Autistic streamers and makes post every April and August for Autistic Acceptance month. Along with other Autistic related days in the year.

  8. As a viewer who has blocked a few streamers for harassment, intimidation and threats, I still can see some on them in the carousel on my PC despite having blocked all of them.
    I would believe that a full blocking would need to block them in the carousel as an addition to not see them in recommandations and block them from seeing our interactions on Twitch as it happens on Youtube.

  9. Can we have a separate version on just chatting for sexualy explicit content, whenever viewing the just chatting tab it's nothing but sexually explicit things. Now that it is explicitly allowed by Twitch, why not make it it's own category so just chatting can actually just be chatting.

  10. It would be great to have a feature to hide the chat and/or the entire stream for everyone who isn't logged in.

    Recently, one of my viewers received screenshots of their conversation in my chat from someone who is already banned. Having a feature that hides the entire chat, or even the entire stream, If possible, would be great! It will help alot with the safety of the streamers and for the safety of the viewers

  11. One of our moderators accidentally banned the wrong person with a misclick. He immediately corrected this mistake, but the user remains banned in all channels that use the Shared Ban feature, which is a lot of manual cleanup (plus the user is marked as Suspicious now, because he is banned in a lot of other channels).

    It would be nice to have a way to undo sharing a ban.

  12. We need something where if we ban someone they can't create another account incase the person is going to harass streamers for a reason because a friend of my just got harassed on her stream earlier today she banned him & he created another account this needs to be added ASAP.

  13. Please allow the editing of a reason for a channel ban.
    Specifically, allow the editing of the reason text of a channel ban, without unbanning the user in question first. It is important that the user stays banned during this process, and that the timestamp of when the user was initially banned is preserved.
    I am someone who likes to tell users why they have been banned, often in great detail, so that they may easily see the error of their ways and show remorse for their actions before submitting an unban request. However, it is a regular occurrence, that…

  14. Please extend the possible maximum length for the reason text of a channel ban.
    Currently, the maximum length the reason text of a ban can have is limited by the length of a chat message (500 characters), and can be calculated as follows: 500-6-<length of username>
    It is possible to ban people through an API integration, but I have not explored its limitations. This is typically not how you ban a user from a channel.
    I have recently banned someone, and I ran out of space listing all the reasons for which to ban them. I really want them to…

  15. Not sure about other games, but for Halo: Master Chief Collection, there is a clique of trolls that hack the game, and sadistically DDoS streamers consistently. They can get a player's IP even if masked, VPN's work but the latency is already bad enough as it is.

    It's disconcerting every time I see a player with a new account, they have no issues creating new, free accounts every time they get banned.

    -They spoof gamertags/screennames, then fly around maps to force other, random players to search the spoofed names to report them (and get them banned).
    -They can create any…

  17. hope this message finds you well. I'm writing as a devoted Twitch user and content creator who deeply values the platform's commitment to innovation and community engagement. Over the years, Twitch has evolved into a dynamic space for content creators and viewers alike. While the platform boasts an impressive array of features, I believe there's an opportunity to further enhance the user experience through the implementation of an Advanced Livestream Statistics Dashboard.

    Rationale:
    As a content creator, I am constantly seeking ways to understand and improve the performance of my livestreams. While Twitch already provides some basic analytics, an Advanced…

  18. I would like to request for a feature to merge vods from the creator dashboard. I am suggesting this idea because I do face issues with streaming based on my current tech and so I do have times where my stream crashes and I have to restart my stream. So at the very least it would be nice to merge the vod so others from my community can watch my stream in a single vod and not have to change out. I believe that this feature will help multiple creators and will improve the streaming quality of life for those…

  19. There should be an appeal system when it comes to emotes getting rejected.

    There has been multiple times where I paid to get an emote created, and made sure beforehand that it wasn't going against the guidelines. Yet they give a general reason, but it doesn't align. Allowing one person's perception to be the only answer isn't right.

  20. This should be a simple feature to add, if I blocked a user, make it so that user will not see my channel listed on the directory.

    You already have it so a banned user will not see chat, expand this to also cover the directories, so they can't see your channel even being listed on that user account.
