Needs to be a lot better human communication with streamers given strikes or bans
I have a friend who streams on this platform, she was wrongfully given a strike a few months ago and even though your team acknowledged that it was done in error the strike has still not been removed. She has now received a second strike for inappropriate attire even though she is always very careful to ensure she follows TOS so we are unsure of exactly what the violation was but she is now looking at a possible third strike and banning because she still has a wrongful strike on her account and we don't understand what the second strike was for!
Twitch needs to provide far more clarification to it's streamers, some of them rely heavily on this platform for their income and would be happy to change their behavior if they were given clear reasons behind their violations. As it stands it doesn't seem like Twitch is interested in looking after the people making their platform possible, particularly if they are a smaller streamer not putting as much money to Twitch's pockets as some others, which is not a smart move as these people will simply move to other more accommodating platforms until one day a platform comes along which actually takes care of their streamers and Twitch will be left in the dust.
Stuff like this really makes streamers feel like we're expendable. Twitch: How would you feel if you were in our position?? A strike warning or a suspension comes from out of nowhere and the only input you have was a vague categorical response? How is something like that supposed to help someone learn what they did wrong, especially considering how SPECIFIC some of your demands are? We are people, we are your success. Treat enough people as if they are a dime a dozen and throw us away... sooner or later, laws of supply will kick in. There won't be anymore dozens to buy with your dimes.
