  1. Twitch should offer all users the option to print a QR code they can post in the window of their home that when scanned reads "THIS HOUSE IS OCCUPIED BY TWITCH STREAMER [Link to their specific account] - LAW ENFORCEMENT, PLEASE VERIFY WHETHER THIS ACCOUNT IS STREAMING BEFORE ENTERING THE HOME"

    This would 1) potentially reduce the incidence of injuries sustained through swatting, and 2) be a responsible and easy way for Twitch to show they want to give their users the ability to protect themselves while streaming.

  2. Sometimes viewers are accidently banned in a stream due to a mis-click by the streamer or moderator. They are normally quickly unbanned but the viewer will show up in other streams as "banned" to to the banned viewer sharing. If the original streamer who banned them unbans them within say 10 minutes it would be good if the viewer then dropped off the "shared banned" listing.

  3. Well basically i ran into something recently with a streamer and i noticed twitch team doesn't look at reports for stuff like that apparently but Xbox does this why not have a group of select people be like twitch mods for twitch itself to look into stuff like making sexual comments to minors letting minors ban evade and stuff like this channel i ran into as i mention in start the streamer itself makes creepy comments to the minors and lets minors talk trash to mods itself Also lets the minors ban evade and refuses report the minors that said…

  4. No safety or removal of phishing streams has occurred for communities, at all. Phishing streams are constantly online, or brought back online minutes after a moderator removes them.

    Designate community or game-level moderators that can submit expedited stream take-downs of streams that are fake.

    For example, the Old School Runescape category has a consistently #1 spot viewbotted account that is rebroadcasting streams of popular streamers in this category, claiming they "are quitting" and "click links in bio to read more."

    These streams are phishing attempts and have legitimately been stealing CC information from fooled users for years, and nothing has…

  5. How do we as Twitch Streamers protect ourselves and our accounts from organized mass false flag reports where a group of hateful viewers communicate with each other someone like in a Discord chat and organize to all false report a stream or comment in order to cause the streamers account to be temporarily or permanently suspended ? 14 days ago I experienced such an incident and I did appeal it however feel that Twitch did not provide me enough opportunity to show the proof that I have of what occurred . I could not find any way to reach out…

  6. As a mod of several channels that stream competitive shooters, there really needs to be better protection from stream snipers, as theres currently... well theres currently nothing. Delays only go so far and it also interferes with the streamer being able to interact with chat and their community. Delays are only really suitable for streamers who dont interact often with chat, or people playing high stakes competitions. Blocking and banning stream snipers dont work. At times either the streamers or us mods are aware of who it is that is stream sniping and we should have the power (or at…

  7. There's streamers currently suffering from attacks from accounts impersonating them. The usernames these attackers have contains words like "Prostidute", "Perverted", "Suicide", "Naked", and more explicit terms next to the Streamers' names. These streamers have had no chance to get support from Twitch.

    Saying "ignore them" or "report them" does NOT work, because the accounts keep appearing with new, more outrageous, names. Streamers report more than 50 accounts appearing. This type of harrassment can get someone killed, there needs to be serious punishment to the IP owner.

  8. This suggestion is based on PositiveIona's idea at https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/933812-safety/suggestions/44529945-sans-serif-fonts

    However, the suggestion to use serif-fonts to resolve the lower case 'l' vs upper case 'I' problem (to clarify the first one is an 'L' and the second one is an 'i') will make the platform less accessible for certain people, ESPECIALLY those with dyslexia. So you'd just be replacing one problem with an entirely new one.

    I'd like to propose that, instead of adding serifs, we should find a font that distinguishes the letters more clearly whilst still being sans-serif.
    Some examples include: Verdana, Tahoma, Trebuchet, or Open-Dyslexic; though I'm…

  9. With the new Nudity & NSFW content guidelines, it has made it very unclear to a lot of people in my community, the VRChat Roleplay community, whether or not furry models and/or avatars are under the same level of scrutiny as human avatars are.

    On April 4, 2020, these rules were put into effect:

    How do the new rules about AR Avatars impact my content if I stream a virtual reality sandbox game like VRChat?
    - Our policy on Augmented Reality avatars applies to content where cameras and software are used to capture a person’s physical likeness and translate it…

  10. I don't want to see ANY channel or user that I have BLOCKED on the website at all. There's nothing worse than blocking a channel because that streamer decided to verbally abuse you publicly on stream, then you block them like you should. Only to find out their twitch stream is still there reminding you that blocking or reporting them will do nothing and change nothing. They still get to appear on my account. I don't understand why this is possible, what is the point of blocking them if they still appear when I browse the streams list? Please change…

  11. 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.

  12. Poor parented individuals who actually use words to interact in a cursive, hate-speech, or raging manner should get disciplined.

    It's possible to interact and steer realities with really respecting the respectful guidelines.

    If their social circle is toxic already should show us that we need to optimize their manners, and teach them never to curse no matter which language skill.

    Fullest respect, yours faithfully

  13. Hello, thank you for implementing the recent phone verification feature. That has been really helpful, along with all the other safety features you have. I am a small streamer who is dealing with a harasser/doxxer who regularly makes new usernames and comes into my chat to drop my real name and address. The phone verification has prevented him from doing that in chat, but now he comes in and whispers my dox to everyone on my viewer list. The following would be very helpful in preventing him from doing this in the future without disrupting my growth as a streamer:

  14. Similar to the idea of denying incoming raids - once it is determined that the raid is malicious, the mods/streamer can ban/remove all raid members with one click. (+Are you sure you want to ban all raid members for raidname)

    Issues with this: 1. they will just privately join the channel in raid-like fashion.
    2. rare chance of getting 2 raids at once, one from a 'friend' and another 'malicious' and banning friendly viewers.

  15. In light of the hate raids, I have been using the option to only allow raids from channels I follow. However, this is not the ideal option since it prevents being able to connect with other, genuine streamers that I may not currently know.

    It would be nice to have more filters for who can raid your stream. I think a great option would be "only allow raids from affiliates and partners" or "only allow raids from accounts that are x days old". This will help prevent others from making an account just to immediately hate raiding a stream.

  16. Things I hear on stream end up in my YouTube recommended. Next thing you know. A closested member of the lgbtq will have his/her/their secret revealed and might face repurcussions. You are going to ruin our lives and endanger them if you keep invading our privacy.

  17. Give streamers or their moderators the ability to accept or deny incoming raids, with a default state to be set by the streamer. At the moment streamers can choose to only be raided by friends or teammates, which increases safety at the cost of discoverability. This will give some peace of mind in the midst of hate raiders.

    Alternatively, a moderator command to "Purge all raiders", if a raid has been malicious - a one stop shop to time out / ban all accounts that came in with a recent raid.

  18. Right now, trolls often come into my chat and scroll through my viewers, and harass them. I think the only people who should be able to see the viewer-list is the streamer, and maybe the moderators. I think it leaves viewers vulnerable to just enjoying a stream. It’s essentially the same thing as if I was watching Netflix, some random person across the world could see that I was watching a certain show. Please remove viewer-list for everyone but the streamer!

  19. Having an option to limit what character typesets can be used in chat.

    For English stream, it could be limited to ASCII-95 (https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/C%2B%2B_Programming/ASCII)
    If a character was used outside of this typeset, the whole message would not go through.

    Any variation could work on this.

  20. Given all of the recent issues with streamers experiencing these kinds of attacks perhaps a step by step outline of how best to deal with these attacks.

    Ie:
    1. Use moderator view
    2. Emote only mode
    3. Clear chat
    4. Add term(s) to automod
    5. Ban accounts involved with the attack
    6. Report were applicable
    7. Return to normal chat

    Repeat as needed. (Or something better)
