    Or promote them to Global Moderators because they are effectively doing your job for you.

    For those who don’t know the difference:
    A Twitch Global Moderator is someone hired by Twitch to process your personal information and track your usage of the platform.
    A Channel Moderator is any random idiot chosen by any streamer to process your personal information and track your usage of the platform.

    The difference is as follows:

    The first represents Twitch and is legally required to be responsible with your private information (according to California’s Online Privacy Protection Act).

  3. Stop muting licensed audio! If you persist on doing this, at least let people save their appeal form to paste in every time you mute licensed audio! Also, does it really take a MONTH to do an appeal of licensed audio? Can't we just show our license and move? Also, once you clear a track, can't you carry that over so you don't re-mute the next video? This is crazy, and not what the DMCA intended!

  4. Imagine a world where twitch publicly acknowledged they have a bot problem. So far for the last 2 weeks I have been following this one account thats been changing their name every day while streaming fake video to fake viewers. They are allowed to stream uninterrupted for upwards of 24 hours before changing the name and doing it again. It has been clear to pretty much every person who stumbles accross this account that its fake and using botting to further push the scam. They provide a url code with promise of $50 sign up for free and a chance…

  5. So I have seen streamers that would find this feature very handy.

    Ban option 1 would be a chat ban the same thing as the ban option now.

    Ban option 2 would be a total ban the user that is banned would not be able to access the stream or chat.

    This 2nd "total ban" feature would be very useful in stream-sniping situations so the ****** would not be able to access the stream.

  6. Sometimes a new game gets released and its not listed under banned games even though it should definitely get banned from Twitch. There should be a way to suggest new games to get added to the list... Don't know why you don't have one already.. this is a gaming site...........

  9. It has come to my attention a few days ago that there are many children in the asmr category. Many of them are "showing themselves". I would like someone from twitch staff to be far more active in this category to hopefully put as much as a stop as humanly possible. I am aware that it will always be an issue, but I would hope with a more active staff presence there that it may help immensely.

  10. I've encountered more and more streamers, who say that if they encounter a child / user who openly states they are below the age of 13, it is not their job to do anything about it.

    So I was wondering if Twitch could openly & clearly state on the policy of what a streamer is required to do when this occurs.

    For example, they must ban them & report them.
    or they can don't have to do anything.

    The way the rules are worded streamers don't have to do anything and can ignore them and come with a line of…

  11. please allow streamers to turn off the host option.
    we can block raids, but we cannot stop channels from hosting us, which is now being exploited and bad actors (some evading bans) are now hosting accounts with a malicious intent.,

    in addition to this
    i would also like to have the option to ONLY ENABLE HOSTS/ AND RAIDS FROM USERS WHO HAVE PHONE NUMBERS VERIFICATION added to their accounts

  12. After the bot attacks on twitch Vtuber channels in those days, i think it's necessary, NOW, a feature which block bots from following channels, the idea should be this : an unverified account gets blocked from the start to follow a channel if that account isnt verified, remember that to create a verified account it's necessary to doing a longer process so the bot buyer much necessarily taking more time and they will give up. Or something which work like that to fight bots.

  13. 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 ?

  14. Start punishing streamers who use very loud sounds (aka rip headphone users) on purpose.

    Some streamers have loud sounds in the command list, either through bots like Streamelements, Nightbot and the like or through channel points.
    This directly hurts those who have hypersensitive hearing problems or people with autism, who have a different interaction with sounds.

    There is no reason, cause or circumstance in which these sounds are used for anything positive, they are simply and purposely loud to hurt the ears of the listener.
    In addition to being a tremendous lack of respect, it is still something that directly…

  15. I dont understand why do you ban people who did not break terms of service? I can see girls streaming pools , hot tubs and beaches every day and its okay on twitch so why do you ban affiliate streamers who want to do the same? you literally destroy someone´s career just because of people who send fake reports and then streamer gets ban and has to wait for long time . i think this is not okay. why dont u ban someone when you know that they broke terms of service? this is not fair at all .

  16. I have found a username that appears to be available but is blocked within your system due to an error.

    The error shown is: "This user name may be offensive and is not allowed."

    I have attempted to report this several times since October and have been met with the same policies regarding recycling and name changes when it does not apply to this situation.

    If there is one name that is incorrectly being caught in your filter I'd assume other users may have this problem as well. If a username IS available and IS appropriate for use then I…

  18. Hello. I made a very long appeal to my suspension that took me over an hour to write. I made this appeal over a month ago and still did not get a response, or I can't tell if I got one or not because I did not receive an email about it. Either my appeal has been ignored for over a month, or it was seen and I can't tell it was. I just wish I could speak to an actual person about my problem, because all of Twitch's support options involve AI. Could a real person get in contact…

  20. Hello!

    I know this has been raised before and promised by both Emmett and Marcus but I would like to draw some perspective to the issue.

    When a streamer receives automatic ban notification email they are given the following information. You were banned for one or more of these three reasons and this offence occurred on a Stream or VOD (aka somewhere).

    As a broadcaster when looking to be compliant with all of Twitch's terms of service and receiving a ban it is hard to know what specifically needs to be changed because the notification email amounts to you vaguely…
