  1. Electroshock is really macabre for channel content. It can also be dangerous. In my opinion, TOS should discourage electroshock for channel content, especially when streamers may feel pressured into these harmful activities by viewers. It's just not worth it. It definitely turns me off to hear streamers scream from the discomfort. There must be some pretty sick viewers out there to get their kicks out of causing streamers pain, especially the macabre pain of electroshock. The only way I can see to handle this is to modify TOS for the safety of the streamers. Shock collars made for animals may…

  2. Contradictive Community guidelines and Content Classification.

    Why is it that Twitch is so concerned about the nudity in games. And yet you have nude and naked streams being allowed and being promoted to the top of the view this.

    What is best is that when my kids and their friends go onto the TV and open twitch, suddenly Reccomended for you they habve these Naked women and naked ***** all over the screen.

    Remove the Hot tubs and steamy baths or whatever they have it.
    You cannot report those channels. The minute that you do, it says their is a…

  3. hi twitch, i was managing my own clips in creator dashboard and at the end of all my clips, 2 streams popped up as recommendation in Just Chatting (as i was managing my Just Chatting clips) and were both from the same creator; the thumbnails were of her naked with her legs and chest exposed (but nipples out of screen). i was slightly taken aback, you know, as my monitor is huge, and it is 4am, and i was not ready to see such nudity while casually editing clips and unwinding from a stream.

    i'm female, and i don't care…

  4. Not sure about other games, but for Halo: Master Chief Collection, there is a clique of trolls that hack the game, and sadistically DDoS streamers consistently. They can get a player's IP even if masked, VPN's work but the latency is already bad enough as it is.

    It's disconcerting every time I see a player with a new account, they have no issues creating new, free accounts every time they get banned.

    -They spoof gamertags/screennames, then fly around maps to force other, random players to search the spoofed names to report them (and get them banned).
    -They can create any…

  5. With the update to the guidelines, users are now prevented from seeing content with safety tags on them. While this is a great step to make Twitch safer, it's not ideal for many of-age users and streamers. I propose that we could ensure viewers still receive appropriate recommendations by allowing them to consent to the tags they're comfortable with seeing on their Homepage when they're setting up their account and in settings so that they can also easily retract consent. It might also be helpful for the homepage itself to have these toggles. Tags are a wonderful way to ensure…

  6. i keep coming across people on my feed under just chatting sexualizing the platform because of these new tags for sexual content. last i checked this website wasnt for soft core **** or any likes of that. with games and drawings im fine with but having irl people doing these things stretching the guidelines and seeing how far they can get with nudity is horrible. at least give us users the option to not view channels that have the tags on. yes we no longer see the stuff on the main page but the channel names and that like AMOURANTH…

  7. Honestly if you have a thriving community and get suspended you can't interact with anyone at all. You are yanked out from your freinds and no real way to communitate unless you have other platforms. This can be very damaging and can be dangerous for the individual. The process of appeal or the way suspentions are given give you no feedback or redemption literlaly removing the individuals freedom of speach. Putting everything in the hand of an automated system that plays with peoples life work and hobbies. Honestly I suggest a more humane system that allows a period of time…

  8. If i go to an offline channel and go to videos tab, and If the recent vod is playing I will pause it. After few seconds it will start autoplaying without me clicking on anything. It is extremely annoying when I want to look at clips or something else, this has been happening for months, and no extensions.

  9. Suggested Guidelines for Artistic Nudity

    While it was sad to see the Artistic Nudity policy get rolled back due to abuse, I do believe it can be brought back with a clearer definition and key restrictions in place.

    I have a framework of the policy that I think can be useful.


    Artistic Nudity Guidelines

    "Artistic Nudity" refers to nude artwork, i.e. Nude art that does not feature or detail genitals of either sex/gender and female subjects with exposed breasts or nipples.
    Drawings, paintings, digital or canvas are allowed to feature Artistic nudity, provided the art does not incorporate the depiction…

  10. I understand that with AI that it became difficult to tell the difference between digital art and photography. Since that seemed to be the greatest source of issues, it seems like the best concession might be to disallow photo realistic nudity until a time when the difference between photo realistic AI art and photography can be more easily identified. Outside of that, I would say requiring explicit and age appropriate tags and making it so you have to opt in to see adult media in the setting should be enough to allow artistic nudity. If there are any other issues…

  11. Digital depictions of nudity present a unique challenge–AI can be used to create realistic images, and it can be hard to distinguish between digital art and photography.

    Most art sites have a stipulation of "if we can't tell, it's treated as real." The current flip flop is just going to confuse people and cause undue stress and accidental violations by people meaning well.

    IE. Pixiv: (not allowed)

    Images that are primarily real-life photographs, regardless of the use of filters or photo editing (*)
    Real-life photographs or photo-realistic images that can be interpreted as sexual content

  12. I have recommendations that not only helps users, but more importantly protect TWITCH itself.

    • Number the policies into clear enforceable points(e.g. policy SC-2b-iv)
    • In enforcement emails, show clear timestamps that shows the violation and quote the policy number violated using the numbering above.

    Making the policy itself is a difficult, intricate task which requires multi-faceted considerations that may be obscure to the general user. Thus I trust twitch has qualified specialists for the actual policy creation. However vague ENFORCEMENT leaves the corporate vulnerable to public image attacks that is extremely dangerous especially for a corporate which depends on advertisers. Clearly…

  13. There's nothing inherently wrong with women (including those who identify as women and female presenting people) with having breasts/nipples.

    We all as humans have nipples. Just because someone is a woman, that does not mean she should be required to cover herself while men are allowed to be shirtless without them being shamed for it.

    There are women with very little b r e a s t tissue as well as men with enlarged chests (for example gynecomastia or simply being overweight).

    If a streamer (regardless of gender) obviously sexualizes themselves on stream (such as groping, sexually moaning, imitating or…

  14. You cant avoid this stuff. You go to twitch's front page and you see women clearly showing as much boob as possible without it being pornographic just to draw in ***** viewers. It's a game to them, how far can they push the line without breaking the rules.. Full screen cam with no game being played. No art being done. Literally just sitting there bouncing around to jiggle you know what. It's shameful that twitch allows this on their site nowadays. Dont be stupid Twitch, we all know what they're doing. They're going to keep doing it until you get…

  15. 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…

  16. there was a lot of hate raids going on when twitch made artistic nudity allowed but the hate raids went after all of them. then twitch went an didn't define the rule enough like to a point for all to know what is allowed. twitch should send everyone a email and send announcements of such of a change to all their users in the notifications. not everyone is going to go to the page of the updates. so twitch you should really define what was allowed for the next rule changes for any thing you decide to do period. besides…

  17. Many Partners flippantly break Twitch's Terms of service, many telling others to do so, in the process. If these are meant to be pillars of the community, they should uphold the standards better than anyone. Instead, they coast on their status to avoid anything beyond a 24-hour ban. This shows that they are not being held to the same standard as the rest of the creators on the platform. Partners who knowingly break the Terms and continue to do it when corrected should be stripped of Partner status.

  18. Simple nudity is not sexual in nature in real life and in artwork. It's clearly not appropriate to classify know classics as sexual - even NSFW or Mature. Example: Michalangelo's "David", etc. Even Facebook stopped censoring such works. Content creators should submit things for review when there is uncertainty and simply.
    So labels Nudity, NSFW, and Classic Art should be added to the list. Sexual should remain a category if mature conduct or erogenous focus is the theme.

  19. I noticed a lot of hate raids will flag / report a channel rapidly to get it taken down; and it had me thinking about Steam Review Bombing.

    I was wondering if a possible fix might be that if a channel gets an exceptional amount of flags / reports in a short period of time that those reports are thrown out or logged as possible hate raid? Might allow your automated systems to avoid banning streamers in these situations while not removing the ability to still report content.

  20. Make a Twitch website that's 18+ only, possibly with more lax moderation and rules.
    One that's similar to twitch, but it's 18+ and it's a separate website. It's unlikely that there would be any monetary loss, long term. Quite the opposite actually.
    Twitch is already considered somewhat of a shady **** site, so it would have no bearing on their reputation.
    The only difference would be that the 18+ content would get its own twitch website and would thus be separated from the regular content and make the main Twitch website predominantly for gaming again.
