Make a new ban feature that fully bans users from a stream
There should be a new ban feature in which broadcasters and moderators can "fully ban" a user from the stream by stopping the video stream, removing them off of the viewer list, and hiding both the video and the messages in the chat (Basically give them a blank page with the message saying "You are fully banned from this channel.") so that banned users won't have to stalk broadcasters or cause any rude behavior on their streams anymore.
Please make this happen!
this is what twitch rly needs.. an ip ban on the trolls..!
@LordBoogzor but this ties into Twitch's complacency about updating their flawed whisper system. It doesn't matter if the OP suggestion is accepted, when they can simply whisper anyone on all of twitch even if they were banned from ALL streams in existence...
That being said, I firmly believe that trolls get a kick out of getting a notification from a stream they are banned from, watching a stream they are banned from, and seeing a chat they are banned from. The icing on the cake is whispering insults to viewers such as "this streamer is a pedophile". Please Twitch, help the small streamers!
Good idea but all they have to do to get around it is to log out. So it would not be so effective imo. It would need an IP ban option for it to really take effect.
Shadow banning would be nice, their messages appear to send but don't, and the stream appears online for them, but it's not the actual stream.
Anonymous, yes, something like that (stream ban, full ban) should be a possibility (hopefully) in case we get any stalkers or rude people coming back and trying to cause more uncomfort on the streams.
This is totally a great idea, but I consider calling this "getting stream banned" like Twitch should have a streamban button. I believe ya dude.
Shad0w1988, that is true, but if they keep it up, then we can report users, and they might get IP Banned or Suspended from gaining access to Twitch's website.
they just make a new account if they get fully banned
