  1. There should be an option on Twitch to report moderators that are going on power trips and abusing their power. There are some viewers on Twitch who are getting wrongfully and unfairly banned from chats, or are getting sent derogatory messages from a moderator after sending an unban request. If a mod abuses their status as a moderator, then there should be some sort of form that allows viewers who have been unfairly banned and even been picked on by certain mods to send a complaint to have the specific mod in question investigated, even if they don't actually know…

  2. Everytime 2 players play eachother, they should block the stream from the other streamer that is watching them. IP address connection or something. since it has something to do with video connection. Maybe ask other streaming platforms if they have fixed it. See if they have any ideas. Don't they have some kind of connection on the game when two people are connected together, ask the company of the game to help you with this so it can ban other players from looking onto their enemies stream. Have it where connections between stream watchers and people on microphones that are…

  3. Right now there isn't an option to report an account for impersonating another user. It's really easy for someone to make an account with a similar name by substituting an uppercase I for a lowercase L (I vs l) or with any other kind of letter/number substitution.

    There should be an option to easily report an account for impersonating someone else.

  4. There's a filter for 18+ streams. I believe that bringing up sexuality at all is already causing a stream to do that. Many people take advantage of this filter and get viewers as a result. Filters LGBTQ Gay and Furry are all revealing sexuality. Any people who use such filters and aren't at 18+ for their streams should be in big trouble and may be pulling in child audiences.

  6. Would be great if Twitch did something about targeted harassment.

    [2 FBI IC3 reports, 1 CPD report, 1 civil lawsuit against the streamer later...Twitch continues to do nothing]

  7. Spam Bots continue to raid the platform. My friends and I are getting spam bots that go to websites such as Dogehype. Although their services are cheap, it is still untrusted, and I want to suggest that any form of "dot com" should be a red flag.

  8. Hello Twitch staff, I suggest you moderate some of the categories like:
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Lineage%202

    In this category, half of the channels are view-botted server promotions which makes no sense. The channels get views by view-botting and embing their channels to their main webpages. Some of the channels stay on top of the list for 24/7. I don't know if other categories have the same issue, but at least this Lineage2 category is full of promoters. If there would be a function specifically to report the Promoted-view botted channel, this would help to make the platform more cleaner.

    Hello there,

    I would like to let you know that you can report channels in the manner you have described. Simply click on the three-dot icon and select the report option. You will be prompted through some reasons. To report bots, you can select Live Stream and then under "Why are you submitting this report?", you can select "Search" and type in "Bots" and follow the rest of the required input instructions. Hope this helps.

  9. I started checking out lower viewer count streamers and noticed a trend of groups of people targeting new streamers with fake donation messages.

    e.g. Username: has donated $1500.00! :TwitchVotes:

    They use the TwitchVotes emote to make the message to make it look legitimate, as it's a Twitch icon with a checkmark. They use these donations to pressure people into doing things, everything from small pranks, to more dangerous stuff, to more sexual requests. It's surprisingly effective, as a lot of these people are non-technical or new to streaming, and feel pressured into doing these dares. I've reported these users, but…

  12. I have suffered wickedness and cyberbullying on Twitch, some that have marked me very deeply and there is a streamer who makes me stalked by his users, I would like that as in other social networks users who are banned from my private profile no longer read the my messages in other people's chats so I can feel safe elsewhere.
    Because now if I ban a person from my profile I don't see him but he continues to see me in chat elsewhere and I would like him to never see anything of me again, I hope Twitch implements this.

  13. "Twitch Streamers Crisis Center": I think that you should create an online "Crisis Center" of sorts to support Twitch streamers who may be experiencing substance abuse issues or homelessness. You could include within that "Center" a "Housing Support" listing advertisements for available housing or roommates wanted. "Housing Support" could also include a roommate pairing service. It could also include a section for supportive chat which would provide both group therapy chat and chat aimed at helping streamers to make friends (and find a "family" of sorts online). You could include an "Opportunities Outside Twitch" section which would help streamers who…

  15. I was not sure what category this fit into but my dilemma is this.
    For the specific games I and many others live stream there is a constant issue involving stream sniping even if you ban someone they can still watch your stream. The even bigger problem is that they can watch in a private or "incognito" tab/window and the username appears to be something like 324098635, A098371192, or x938649236x etc. I know this because me and my moderators tested this in my offline chat to see who was appearing under "Viewers in Chat" and we noticed this pattern.

    My…

  16. I was watching a stream of a Georgian streamer describing how members of his family had been killed by Russian Soliders during the Russian Georgian invasion 14 years ago. He was also talking about how he didn't like Russian people who supported the War in Ukraine. He was clearly upset by the murder of his family and a pro Russian person in chat reported him. He was then suspended for a breach of ToS. Is this really how twitch want to take sides and silence people who condemn war crimes? Disgusting that twitch want to censor people who are suffering…

  17. My music does not get saved, I did however sing along occasionally. I didn't think I was good enough to get dcma flagged but thanks? Technically though wouldn't that fall under covers?

  18. Twitch has become an echo chamber for woke PC nonsense. You’re not allowed to think differently but you’re allowed to be objectively racist daily if you support the right side (hasan). I get that twitch doesn’t want the backlash from the cancel culture mob but grow a pair. Allow freedom of speech and expression on the platform not just for far left people but also far right people.

  19. So I came to this conclusion when I saw the recent event that has taken place in a streamer stream that was called "Nadia" she exposed a user first and last name throughout the stream and even if she was banned for that. Not questioning the sentence whatsoever I think that this type of information should absolutely not be shown to any user of this platform and that, even to the person we donated to. Because even if twitch do explain and incite people to take legal action if doxing happens to them, i think that is not enough because…
