New roles! "Stream Manager/Administrator"
Hi! One of the Ideas of mine I'd love to see implemented which would help a lot of mods/streamers. Starting out It'd really be nice if there were some changes made to the "editors" role and some new roles added to replace some of the "editor" role's current features. For example, it'd be really nice if there was a "Stream manager/adminstrator" role or even both implemented with different privileges. We need a role for Streamers where they're be able to assign people of their choosing (Generally Top mods) to #1, have more access to be able manage/edit the channel and #2, so they can elect one person to be in charge/override other moderators (specifically being able to delete moderators comments or temporarily revoke their powers).
Here's what I suggest, the current editor role doesn't quite make sense in my opinion. It gives more power than an editor should need, the Editor role should specifically be for editors and provide them tools to clip/highlight content and only that, they shouldn't have full access to the stream manager/creator dashboard.
Stream Manager role: I suggest Twitch implements a new role for Streamers to give out to their most trusted individuals that essentially gives full access to manage their channel! Starting out, those with the role will have complete access to the Creator dashboard and Ads manager. I'd also suggest giving them permission to see the stats in the creator dashboard (Ex. Being able to see the total amount of Ads ran that stream, etc). Permission to add/remove moderators and with that implementing a "Mod Timeout" feature to temporarily take away mod privileges, adding/removing VIP's, access to editing panels, and it'd be nice if they could see more usercard info (Total gifted subs/bits,ETC). This role should be able to assist in any area of the channel hence should have the same access/permission as all the other roles.
The Administrator role: Now for the administrator role I'd think of it as the "top mod/Moderator's boss". The Administrator role should have complete control over the channel moderators meaning they can add/remove or timeout/"temporarily" take away their mod privileges (Basically a mod timeout) . All ban appeals should have to go through the Administrators or they should have a history to reference to ensure they're being handled properly. I'd suggest giving Streamers the power to OPTIONALLY give Administrators access to the Ads manager as well.
Long story short the current roles we have either limit, or give too much power to certain individuals. We need more/new roles with different permissions.
