  1. Some users create problems within communities of streamers that don't warrant a permanent ban from the platform but cause recurring issues.

    For example, I have a group of other streamer that I am friends with and our communities often intermingle. A user has been prevelant in all of our channels, walking the tight rope of bannable offenses. While we have used discord to keep in contact with our mods collectively, it still segments the information into a small group.

    It would be amazing to have a way for content creators and moderators to raise red flags across all content creators.…

    Hello! We have introduced Shared Ban Info that may help with solving your suggestion. You can learn about Sharing Ban Info with your fellow creators at our blog

    Apologies for missing this post at launch, but thank you for your feedback and have a great day!

  2. Enable 2FA as a chat optional requirement for users to be required to have 2fa before typing in a users stream chat. This would drastically reduce the number of times a banned user will try to evade a ban to harass a streamer / disrupt chat.
    On top of this it would drastically increase awareness on 2fa. Being optional it wouldn't force people or streamers to turn it on or use it. This could also help people who have 18+ Mature content streams reduce the number of people under 18 from engaging.

    As 2fa already exists within the twitch platform…

    Hey all,

    Thanks so much for your feedback and comments on this topic. Today we’re updating our suite of moderation tools by adding phone-verified chat and expanding the settings for email verification, to help Creators better control their chat experience and improve security. Both Creators and Mods will be able to set the verification requirements for a channel and there are varying levels you will be able to set so it best suits your community. Unlike 2FA, which requires you to enter a code each time you sign in, you’ll only have to verify a phone number and/or email once to be considered verified for chat across Twitch. For more information please refer to our blog post from earlier today: https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/09/29/securing-your-chat-with-phone-and-email-verification/

    We’ve spent many months building, testing and refining this tool, and while this is far from the last update on our roadmap to improve Creator safety, we’re optimistic about…

  5. G'day fellow moderators!,

    So as of late on a mate's stream, one of the other mod's and myself started setting chat to emote only during cutscenes in the game he is playing, decreasing the chance's of story etc being spoiled for him,

    However,

    Typing it out all the time is starting to feel like a chore, would it be possible to add a toggle button, via the settings cog button at the bottom of chat under mod tools, the same way there is a slow mode toggle for "off/on"?

    I think it'd add another effective tool for mod's to help…

    Hey there!

    So sorry for the delay on the response to this! But we have added an easily toggle-able setting for emote only and a few other chat settings.

  6. Please allow streamers to remove people from their follower's list. As a small streamer, I struggle with trolls, and I have made many streamer friends who have had the same experiences as me. On more than one occasion I have banned a troll from chat and had them return with upwards of 3 other accounts, sometimes even up to 10 or 15 other accounts during one stream. (Keep in mind my average stream is about 2.5 hours, and I try my best to not acknowledge or encourage the trolls at all, I just ban them and move on.) They follow…

    You have a lot of different suggestions here, the latter of which have not been implemented, but I wanted to let the thread know that we have recently released the ability to remove followers from your list by Blocking them.  https://twitter.com/TwitchSupport/status/1243643979897417730?s=20

    You can see how to Block a user here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/how-to-manage-harassment-in-chat#BlockWhispersandMessagesfromStrangers  Additionally, you can see your channel Banned Chatters in your Moderation Preferences in the Dashboard  https://dashboard.twitch.tv/settings/moderation

    Please post the other points as separate ideas. Thank you.
