  1. Recently Twitch updated their guidelines and with the update the tags "Suicide Prevention" & "Suicide Awareness" have been removed as tags as they go against Twitch community guidelines. I am appalled that Twitch would remove advocacy for people who are trying to promote better mental health through trying to prevent suicide. I have been a strong advocate of suicide prevention through having discussions about mental health in order to remove the stigma around it. I hope that Twitch reconsiders this decision to blanket ban any tag with the word 'suicide' in it so we can go back to utilizing this…

  2. I often have to report spam bots or onlyfans advertising bots. Now I have to enter my e-mail address every time I want to report a bot.

    Please remove the e-mail field or prefill the field with the e-mail address stored in my account.

    Having to fill in the field every time is very annoying and prevents you from reporting accounts that spam users with ads or other things.

  3. 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…

  5. https://www.reddit.com/r/Palworld/comments/1ac36h9/palworld_shows_up_as_a_game_called_pal_on_twitch/ i and several others have the ability to manually fix this on streams but not clips My suggestion is that there would be some kind of settings ability to. change content ID mistakes. on clips as well. For some reason this hasn't been implemented for clips. And even though most of my streams are now labeled as pal world, yet the clips I took from those streams are now labeled as pal Even though they aren't pal.. because we have one game that has the first three letters of another game. Don't know what PAL is, but because of…

  6. Every time I login, I am required to go to my email and give a code. Twitch claims this is a safety and privacy feature that you can not deactivate, but if twitch can’t tell I’m on the phone with that app and the only reason I’m on the internet is because the app took me there, then it’s not a safety feature it’s 2 step login you can’t turn off. How about you just do a better job. When the nurse brings you back to the doctors office, the doctor doesn’t come in and ask you who you are.…

  7. Truth be told. I don't think it is appropriate for ANY Twitch user to be posting ANY sexualized photos period no matter how they cover themselves up. This is a gaming content site NOT pornhub and sex has no business being on a gaming site. There ARE minors that game n like watching n following other gamers and don't think they need to be exposed to garbage like that. ANY form of nudity, whether using hands or stickers to cover up genitals is considered sexual content and should be an automatic suspension or permanent banning due to ALL policy violations.…

  8. Concerning the issue of malicious individuals using multiple accounts to target specific users in order to abuse the measures mentioned above and force their suspension, I think chat-related issues can usually managed within channel moderation grounds without any active involvement of Twitch, except for the cases in which severe violations occure.

    The current system imposes a 14-day suspension for repeated harassment towards others, which I consider excessive, for it can lead to mumerous mistaken suspensions. Additionally, avenues for appealing these suspensions are limited, raising concerns that users may leave Twitch if this issue persists.

    Many acquaintances have experienced mistaken suspensions,…

  9. I see no issue with using the word "Latino" in the title of a clip. That is LITERALLY the name of an ethnicity. Please explain how that counts as "inappropriate language."

  10. So I know this has been discussed a couple of times, but I think that's part of where my confusion is coming from. I want to know whether, as a mod or broadcaster, does banning a follower remove them from the broadcaster's follower list or not?

    This page mentions that banning a user will remove them from the broadcaster's follower list: https://safety.twitch.tv/s/article/Managing-Harassment?language=en_US#7ChannelBans

    However, in this UserVoice thread Twitch mentions that that change was rolled back: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310201-chat/suggestions/44393841-remove-the-feature-that-unfollows-banned-users

    So I'm a little confused about this. I know that if the broadcaster blocks a follower, the follower gets removed from the follower list.…

  11. I've noticed these bugs recently while using the platform and figured to list them all here instead of sending a ticket for each one.

    Mobile bugs

    1. When I try to redeem channel rewards, I can open the channel point menu but can't redeem anything on an affiliate's or partner's channel.
    2. Whenever I send messages, my name is displayed in black without my badges showing. I would either have to look at the streamer's chat overlay or refresh their channel page to fix it on my end along with having to use my bits.

  12. Ive reported somone for bullying and harrasment with the proof to match. Its been months and nothing was done. Now today this same person has leaked my personal cellphone number to his chat/stream. The vod is there. The time stamps are there. Nothing was done before so how am I to feel safe knowing it has gotten this far with no action taken.

  13. Summary:
    On the "Block this user" selection screen after reporting a clip, I would like it to be clear which users are specifically targeted for blocking.

    Details:
    I was reporting a clip created by a malicious user.
    (Specifically, clips created with misleading titles that make it seem as if the channel owner is misbehaving, even though they have nothing to do with the actual video content being clipped.)

    I intended to report the affected clip and the user who created the clip.

    After I finished reporting the clip, I was presented with a "Block this user" selection screen. The text…

  14. When Twitch staff receives reports with clear proof that a streamer is in violation of guidelines, they ignore the reports and deliberately fail to take action. I know because I have sent reports stating the violation, linking the rule being violated, and included screenshots and video clips. Everything is made perfectly clear. Yet, hours later, the streamer is still streaming doing the same thing. And this has happened many many times over a year.

    If the streamer is continuing to do it, then whatever punishment Twitch is imposing, probably none, is not enough. The streamer continues to do it because…

  15. 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…

  16. I wish there was more fair/even treatment. Had a friend who is a small streamer (affiliated) being a viewer for another small streamer (and was labeled mod) get suspended for 7 days for saying something. Was it again your "guideline" Yes, in a sense, it was out of guidelines but it wasn't nearly as bad as some of the stuff I've seen Twitch allow.
    (Context clues showed that it was an inside joke between the streamer and him and was accepted by the streamer.)

    It wouldn't be a big deal if treatment was across the board, but I've seen some…

  17. Enable full verification of a user with a mobile number and passport ID. So that it can stop people looking for and abusing the young people who stream.
    When the same user can only create a new account with a new e-mail, it does not make security very high for the young people that predators try to take into private rooms. To date I have reported many people trying this.

    If safety is important for those under 18, this should be a matter of high priority. Enable that "everyone" must activate their account with a mobile number.

    How many of…

  18. Better enforcement of policies regarding individuals who are under suspension/ban. Anyone who commits violations to the ToS should get suspended/banned based on the offense, and if said individual commit any other violations (ban evasion, appearing on another person's account, etc.) while suspended/banned, they should automatically be hit with a permanent ban.

  19. I just recently started streaming music in my streams. today i used twitches own download, pretzelrocks, and some of my content got cut out for copyright issues. how am i supposed to know something that is being advertised as safe to use for music has copyrighted music thrown into it? I dont think it is a very good idea to use these music companies as recommendations if copyright enforcement is going to be thrown in even though its advertised as safe to use while streaming.

  20. 標題:如何保護我的聊天室社群不被誤ban?

    內文:感謝Twitch對社群經營機制的用心,最近我聊天室被大量檢舉仇恨言論,都是聊天室的好表現帳號,也都不會講一些奇怪的話,有什麼機制是可以預先保護這些人不被惡意檢舉,或是被惡意檢舉後我可以協助證明是誤判的呢

    Title: How to protect my chat room community from being banned by mistake?

    Body:

    I appreciate Twitch's efforts in managing the community. Recently, my chat room has been reported for hate speech in large numbers. These are all well-behaved users who would not say anything strange. Is there any way to prevent these users from being maliciously reported in advance, or to help me prove that they were falsely banned after being reported?
