  1. The safety settings as of now only affect the chat, not the channel itself. Leaving the streamer vulnerable to "Follow Raids" by bot accounts. Here are some safety options that could be implemented to prevent this:
    [All examples are toggable options]

    1- Account Verification: Non-Verified accounts (via e-mail or phone) aren't able to follow the channel.

    2- Account Age: Accounts created before X days aren't able to follow the channel.

    Meassures have to be taken for the safety of twitch streamers, these options will help every user in this platform. It's very demoralizing to be streaming and out of the…

  2. When a person is banned from a channel, it turns out that the channel which they were banned from can be put on their recommended carousel.

    First, it makes no sense to be offered a recommendation to a channel that wishes you not to go there. But also, for a case when a person is unaware why they are banned, it adds quite a bit of anxiety to see it repeatedly recommended and provides a less than stellar experience.

    This should be a common sense feature to be approved.

  3. Why is the term '******' accepted at Twitch/Amazon? From what I can see it's completely acceptable for streamers/Twitch chatters to use this term freely.

    Twitch has cracked down on most bigoted language, so I am curious as to why this term has been allowed to be said?

  4. The New Content Classification drop down appeared today and the mature content has been removed. However, The categories need to be developed further and made clearer.

    For example - In my stream I have always put the mature content warning on - not for any specific reason. Occassionally there is some light harmless inuendo as part of the banter (nothing really worse than someone mispeaking something that sounded a bit rude, or someone making a 'said the actress to the bishop' comment.)

    According to the new options, this would mean I would have to label my stream as having 'Sexual…

  5. Greetings,

    Labeling streams with Sexual Themes is not enough because thumbnails of them still appear in category listings.

    They need there own category to be required to be in. Streams with someone shaking their buttocks in the camera should not be allowed in categories such as Art. I am sick of seeing preview images of them in channel lists. It is disgusting. We should have a choice in whether we see that or not.

    Thanks

  6. The current wave of harassment bots mass generate accounts seconds before they follow, typically making accounts and following sequentially so that their usernames read out as a torrent of abuse.
    It is clear that automation is used to create these accounts and command them to follow. It should not be possible to create accounts with automation.
    Therefore do the following things:
    Implement recapture or other real human authentication method for account creation.
    IP block for account creation on the same IP within an hour.
    Introduce a feature to Shield Mode that prevents unverified accounts from being able to follow at…

  7. 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

  8. There have been many cases where people have been suspended for blatant rule violations by committing sexual and or vulgar acts, however these ban/suspension durations (if they get banned or suspended at all) seem to be directly related to the large following and income they bring to twitch. it would seem to me and most anyone with access to your site, that it is an unfair practice to simply pick and choose who you decide to allow to break the agreements based off of the monetary value they create. Ive recently started streaming myself, and have had one viewer suspended…

  9. To Whom it May Concern at Twitch and whoever else decides to read this,

    While I am not someone who streams on Twitch, though have considered it, and who rarely finds myself watching streams, I still had been rather excited for the recent, now declared null, update to the TOS/Policy on Sexual Content.

    I am not someone who participates all that often in adult content, but I do believe that it should be able to exist in adult spaces for those who do wish to participate. The internet has become a hostile places for those who wish to see or…

  10. Why is twerking allowed without a label, despite being potentially seen as sexual, while nudity, a natural act, results in legal consequences?

  11. I notice for streams there are options to classify the stream 'for a mature audience only'. I have made clips and featured clips from my live stream, which are for a mature audience only. However, for clips, especially 'featured clips' there is no option to classify the clips, featured or not.

    When will the 'mature audience only' option be available for clips and a blur screen option for all clips exhibiting adult only content?

    Thanks!

    Hi, we're working on having the content classification labels apply to clips, based on the stream; I'll update this post, as soon as we have more information. Thanks!

  12. Have a option where followers have to verify their account through email/phone, to put a limit/ halt on bot accounts created, ive gotten over 200+ bot follows in the last 3 hrs and since im just starting my account, i dont want it to be flagged or banned for something that i cant stop.

  13. I believe the system for users to appeal bans could be better improved by submitting an actual description and even getting the opinion of the streamer. I had two friends in my chat and ‘Friend 1’ made a comment (Something to the effect of “…kill @Friend2UserName !!” while playing a first person shooter) and ‘Friend 2’ thought it would be funny to ‘report’ the comment of Friend 1. Well, without review, Friend 1 was banned and denied appeal. Friend 2 even admitted that he did the report jokingly and there was nothing malicious about the comment. Friend 1 was an…

  15. The following two sections of the Community Guidelines should be on the same page so streamers know when they must use the "Pools, Hot Tubs & Beaches" category:

    Section #1

    https://safety.twitch.tv/s/article/Community-Guidelines?language=en_US#22Attire

    "- Standard guidelines

    We don’t permit streamers to be fully or partially nude, including exposing genitals or buttocks. We do not permit the visible outline of genitals, even when covered. Broadcasting nude or partially nude minors is always prohibited, regardless of context.

    For those who present as women, we ask that you cover your nipples. We do not permit exposed underbust. Cleavage is unrestricted as long as these coverage…

  16. the tldr;
    i would RATHER be able to select an option to actually ONLY see adult creators/communities on the homepage, only mature/18+ streams, and i don't want to have to click a verify thing every time i enter their chat.

    how about, now hear me out, how about instead of "shadowbanning" (which is what twitch is doing preventing adult themed content from appearing on the homepage), just give users an option to opt in to see mature content within their account, so that it is only advertising adult creators to other opted-in adult creators/viewers. personally, i would rather even go…

  18. HALLO! An den Leser dieser Nachricht: Ich verurteile nicht Sie als Person, sondern die geldgierigen Entscheidungsträger dieser Plattform!

    Beschwerde:
    Ich mochte Twitch immer und ich werde es weiter nutzen, aber ich wollte wenigstens einmal für mein eigenes Gewissen rückmelden wie entsetzlich und beschämend es ist, dass Twitch zu einer halben Pornoseite geworden ist auf der diverse junge Menschen dazu verleitet werden ein falsches Frauenbild zu erlernen und ggf sogar Geld in den Rachen dieser bemitleidenswerten "Damen" zu werfen.
    Vor dem Gesetz ist das natürlich nicht strafbar, da ja jeder selber auf seine Kinder aufpassen muss(was nahezu unmöglich ist), aber moralisch…

  19. 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…
