Safety

How it works:
  • Choose a relevant category for your idea and check to see if any other users have already submitted this suggestion before creating your own
  • Be clear with your suggestion, provide examples and solutions to the problem you are posing. Suggestions without actionable feedback may be closed without comment
  • Upvote existing ideas, as opposed to creating multiple similar requests
  • Be sure to share your suggestion with others to gain more support!
  • Note: Suggestions are not guarantees that we will take action on an idea. We will try our best to communicate why an idea may not work, but may not always be able to share that information.
  • Titles that are unclear or unnecessarily vulgar may be reworded to better reflect the request for ease of discovery


If you need help:
This forum is for ideas only. If you need help, please check out our help portal for tons of articles that may answer your questions. If you still need help, you can reach out to our support team in the help portal as well!

Appeals or commentary on suspension decisions, support requests, suggestions disparaging others, and non-constructive feedback will be closed without comment.

  1. On the terms page (https://safety.twitch.tv/s/article/Twitch-Terms?language=en_US).

    Since editors are a role with elevated permissions explaining this to potential new creators would be ideal.

    Thanks so much for reaching out with this feedback!

    We have added Editor: Channel editors are appointed by the channel owner and have access to the channel’s dashboard. They may help manage the channel in a number of ways including editing stream info, running ad breaks, editing video information, uploading videos, starting reruns, downloading past streams, managing clips, and setting clipping permissions.

    Please let us know if there are any more terms you would like to see added to the Safety Center.

  2. On the https://safety.twitch.tv/s/article/Twitch-Terms?language=en_US page. Some streamers are in legal jurisdictions where using the words donations cause them to fall under different tax laws.

    The word tip has no such limitations I know of anywhere in the world.

    Hey there!

    Thank you so much for this feedback!

    We have updated the definition to Donations: Monetary gifts to a streamer made through a third-party service, such as PayPal. Some streamers refer to these as “tips.” Please note that gifts made to streamers are not recognized as charitable donations for tax purposes. All fundraising for charities must be through a platform that allows donors to donate directly to the charity and receive a tax deductible receipt.

    Hopefully this is better clarification for donations vs tips.
