Bulk reporting to help combat bot accounts / troll raids
Bot spam, bulk follows, etc. have always been a problem but it seems that this is only growing more prevalent as time goes on. Additionally, the phenomenon of troll raids has been something I've become more aware of over time and suspect is growing as well.
Having a feature where streamers and moderators can bulk select users based on criteria (e.g. follow age, view time, joining from a specific raid, message pattern posted in chat, user name, etc.) and then use a single action to report and ban / timeout / block users would be immensely helpful in combating these trolls.
As someone who mods (and has dealt with these issues before) I believe that this is a feature that would obviously mesh well in the moderator view (and presumably the streamer dashboard, but I'm not personally familiar with that.)
For the sake of completeness, I would also suggest that there be both unbans for specific users (in case someone is caught in the mass ban by mistake) and a single action unban for the entire group (in case a mod decides to do something trollish themselves or in case of misunderstandings - like a raid message that gets mis-interpreted.)
We have come up with a feature that allows you to report accounts in bulk. Please check out how to use the batch reporting tool. Thank you.
I am upvoting this because it is still an issue.
I recently had to report/ban/block about 10 accounts for followbotting from a fake raid, and it would have been much more efficient if there were a way to report all of them at once rather than having to select them individually. I can hardly imagine how much more problematic it would be if I had more than 10 accounts I was dealing with.
need to make a feature that when u block someone they cant find u, sick of dealing with trolls
This is an absolute necessity in light of the recent hate raids and follow botting. It is asinine to expect mods to sit there and one by one ban and report each individual account; these raids can easily bring in triple and possibly quadruple digits. We need better ways to protect and take care of our communities.
Was just in a stream that got spammed but followed bots and some way to report these bot accounts would be great
I would like to add the term ban, not just block to this suggestion. Banning all users who came over in a hate raid with a single click should be an option.
Fully support this idea - especially the "ban users joining from a specific raid" feature given the current hate raids
in response to the plague of hate raiding, there should be a button that allows you to block a raid removing all those who came over form your stream and give you a popup that asks if you want to report that streamer and possibly their chat. this should apply to hosts as well.
I went on my social media today to find out there's a bunch of bots being able to grab IP Addresses and the worst thing that I have to do is ban each one of those bots (1 at a time) I feel that there should be a way to ban multiple users to help those who want to ban bots out of their channel..
With the rampant abuse of Twitch's account-creation system spawning a multitude of follow bot raids/hate raids, there NEEDS to be a way to mass-report accounts for the moderators of a stream and the streamer themselves. Having to report accounts individually is absurdly time-consuming and with a lot of the bot accounts using names that are essentially random characters, it's hard to keep track of what accounts you have already reported.
Give us the option when filling out a report to either include more users in the report OR flag a time for manual review so we don't have to click through 3+ menus and a text box to report a single account.
