Permaban and timeout duration suggestions
Recently there was a change in the permaban system so when you permaban a person he can't see chat anymore. I understand that this is added to prevent harassment and stalking, but I think it's not fair, what does his typing something bad in chat has with his reading the chat? If he violated rules by typing something inappropriate, I just ban him from typing, that's only fair, but I don't want to ban him from reading. It's not only unfair but also encourages people to create alternative accounts to be able to read chat again while they could stay on their original account if they could still read chat even without typing anything.
It wouldn't be a problem if streamers had the ability to timeout viewers for any amount of time, like instead of permabanning someone you just timeout him for 10 years or so (it would be great meme material also), but you can't timeout viewer for more than 2 weeks, and there's a huge gap between 2 week suspension from typing in chat and permabanning the person. Imagine if there was no options between 2 weeks in prison and a life sentence in real life.
So, my suggestion is - you should either allow the streamer to choose if he wants to ban the user from viewing chat when permabanning him, or allow the streamer to timeout viewers for any amount of time, or just revive old /ban in form of /timeout forever.
I would totally like to see how much banned users (excluding bots) there were for a certain channel. That would make some nice meme material too. bonk bonk bonk.
Oh, that'd probably need some ban review. "did you think the ban was fair? rate yes/no on scale of 10".
Or after a (long) timeout, this will clear the review stat.
Funny: I just literally heard (for another user, after doubt of the streaming): "I'm just gonna ban you". Some streamers are really a very closed community (lot of bans, never do raids etc.)
