  2. Please give use an option to chosse between a normal and a silent ban.
    What a silent ban is? If i silent ban someone, the banned person will not see it. He will not get a message and he still can write in chat. But noone without him can read it.
    Why? Against trolling and against getting troll to make new accounts after thex get banned.
    With a silent ban a troll will keep writing but get no attention!

  3. Whispers only has 'report harrassment' or 'report spam'. This does not cover other things that could happen like threats. Give us the ability to make a report like there is elsewhere.

  4. Replicate the "Blocked List" commonly used by Twitter. This can be implemented by modifying how the banned button works. Here is a simplified breakdown:

    1. Upgrade banned button to not instantly ban, but bring up a radial list with reason for banning. This would cut down on accidental mod missclick and add more weight to banning. Reasons can be something like "Racist/Homophobic remarks, Threating, or Other with a text box."

    2. Log the number of bans per option with account. After 3x strikes user is added to a list associated with the banned reason and notified via email. Notification is important so…

  5. I would like to give feedback about the crackdown on twitch and gambling. If twitch decides not to support slots/casino streamers. Then you should probably not support gammers in general. No difference in someone playing slots/casino games versus someone who is playing a MMO or RPG that is gambling/rolling stats for an item - it is still gambling if it is real money or fake money. Not to mention the fact that you can microtransaction a lot of stuff in games for in game content/money. Casinos want people partnerships with streamers to bring in players to the casino. Gaming companies…

  6. I don't know if this is an issue for anyone else but recently a banned user came into a channel I moderate for. There was no ban appeal and both the creator and myself were concerned and shocked as we were sure the person in question was banned. We then looked into our ban and blocked list and there is not as many names as there was before meaning our chat safety could be at jeopardy. Twitch, please fix this.

  7. Hello,

    Would it be possible to ban people from the channel?
    Banning them from a chat is good but from a channel is better.

    For the streamhack in particular, let me explain:

    Many games are streamed and suffer from the toxicity of streamhackers.
    We absolutely need to be able to prevent them from accessing the channel's video stream.
    This spoils the gameplay for streamers and note that the streamhack is akin to cheating. (Roleplay and competitive games for example)

    Does Twitch condone cheating? I don't think so, so it would be good to set up
    this system of BAN from…

  8. There needs to be an option to choose what powers moderators get. Training a new mod? give them only the ability to delete messages and give timeouts. One of your mods bans people too easily? Take away their ability to ban people. This needs to be more granular.

  9. I would like to see an option to choose a different default setting on a shared channel basis.
    Different channels and communities punish people for different reasons. Especially if you are a long time member or a mod in several communities you most likely know the different criterias each uses. You might not be as strict yourself as one streamer and you might be more strict than another.
    Being able to choose the default correctly per shared channel there is a bigger chance to be right from the start with the default setting for your stream instead of changing it…

  10. Ich würde mir wünschen, das das Melde System Vereinfacht wird Z.b. bei einer Bot Spam Attacke. Ein Tool einfügen bzw. ein Fenster wo man Einfach nur Melden muss und vielleicht nur noch eine Kategorie Auswählen so das man keine Stunde braucht um 50 Benutzer zu Melden ich hatte schon mehrere Bot (Troll) Attacken mit erleben müssen und habe Teilweise eine Stunde jeden Nutzer gesperrt, Was auch ne Idee wäre , wenn man Massen Meldungen Machen kann man Markiet die Chat Teilnehmer mit z.b. Rechtsklick wo ein Fenster auftaucht wo dann ne Option , Markieren und dann ein Button auftaucht melden…

  11. I started checking out lower viewer count streamers and noticed a trend of groups of people targeting new streamers with fake donation messages.

    e.g. Username: has donated $1500.00! :TwitchVotes:

    They use the TwitchVotes emote to make the message to make it look legitimate, as it's a Twitch icon with a checkmark. They use these donations to pressure people into doing things, everything from small pranks, to more dangerous stuff, to more sexual requests. It's surprisingly effective, as a lot of these people are non-technical or new to streaming, and feel pressured into doing these dares. I've reported these users, but…

  12. This function is intended for filtering political discussions or statements in the chat.
    To this day, the streamer still has to point out in order to prevent such things in the chat. It is also not uncommon for political debates to continue in the same stream. So the creator and moderators need to watch out for people who don't follow the streamer's words.
    This function can help the creator and moderators to keep the chat clean.

  13. Moderators and long term watchers are marked with "Suspicious User monitored by" followed by nothing. There does not appear to be any ban evasion or similar involved, and no reason is given. Users marked as suspicious in this way do not appear in Suspicious User Activity. Seems to only occur when using channel point redeems.

  14. Chat verification should be possible without mobil number verification, if a streamer trust a user. Otherwise lot's of people who do not want to give out their mobile number, could not be an active member of the community anymore. And the streamer and twich as well are benefit from active user, which are chatting and make the platform more interactive.
    I understand that new and unverified account should not be able chat directly everywhere, but for twitch users which a following a streamer a very long time, it should be possible to allow them to chat.
    So maybe the streamer…

  15. There needs to be an elevated level of reporting that covers death threats, threats of violence and threats to children that don't just receive "notification" that action has been taken. Rather they are able to directly and immediately chat with someone at twitch support to ensure that such threats are resolved immediately. There needs to be a way that twitch can give feedback to streamers to make them feel like they are able to receive actual help.

  16. Please add a way to contest a system forbidden word in some languages.

    Example : In french, the title "ça va péter !" (which means "it's gonna explode !") is not compliant I don't understand why. I would like to be able to inform Twitch that there is no problem with these words.

    Funny : I tried to change to other things, but even "Peter" does not pass. Is Peter a forbidden word in some countries ? Are Peter Pan, Peter Falk and Peter Jackson banned from Twitch ? And this is just an example, there are many other words…

  17. Greeting:

    Please help restrict IRL streamer in Taiwan during serious Covid-19 epidemic.

    Currently Taiwan suffers very serious Covid-19 epidemic, which causes daily new case of 80000~100000, and about 50 death.

    Our government didn't restrict any outside activity, which lead people still walking and eating outside, include IRL streamer.

    Please help restrict IRL streamer, because their behavior might potentially encourage people stay outside and most important, their might spread virus.

    Please consider this suggestion seriously, thanks.

  18. How is such a large company so utterly incompetent, it is honestly ridiculous. i posted this message and it was denied due to conflicts?

    "i guess the perspective he draws at makes it hard to convey"

    what in this message was at all problematic??

    Am i meant to guess what the random naughty word is? Why dont you say what isn't allowed. truly insane.

    also the effort to fine this forum is excessive.

  19. Blacklist a phrase so that any messages containing the phrase are not displayed, currently the only way to achieve this is by using a 3rd party plug-in which can only censor the phrase, however, the rest of the message is still visible.

  20. Hello. I made a very long appeal to my suspension that took me over an hour to write. I made this appeal over a month ago and still did not get a response, or I can't tell if I got one or not because I did not receive an email about it. Either my appeal has been ignored for over a month, or it was seen and I can't tell it was. I just wish I could speak to an actual person about my problem, because all of Twitch's support options involve AI. Could a real person get in contact…
