  1. Chat bots are intended for a channel owner to engage and moderate THEIR chat and channel. It is inappropriate, unwelcome, and absolutely NOT HARMLESS. You would NEVER in your right mind allow some stranger (or their spy cam and mic) to lurk unwelcome in your home.

    Chatbots should not have the same account-like status as real people. They should be restricted to their owner's channel and chat completely via implementation. They should not be permitted to roam freely.

  2. Add a set cooldown from following to unfollowing as it sucks when someone follows to only get noticed by the streamer and thanked to then immediatly unfollow. People do this often on my stream, they follow me, I say thanks and a few moments later then unfollow.

  3. Lately, these bans attacking everyone are complicated.

    What if they create a way for users who are watching streaming to confirm the bans?An example: Suppose I am watching a stream where the creator of the content does something that will upset me, in which case I request a ban confirmation for all other users who are watching the same stream, and if the percentage rate is in favor ban, the ban is approved by the majority.What do you think? Fair enough?Note: Please, if you like the idea, don't take it for yourself. I await an answer.

  4. Thanks for putting together Creator Camp in the first place! It has a wealth of resources and gives me more confidence to get started.

    One thing I would like more information about is how to avoid copyright issues with playing music on my channel while streaming. I know some streamers do this already and I would like to know their workarounds (especially since listening to certain kinds of music is a big part of my life and personality).

  5. To help with the new stuff coming with banning people it should have an optional feature to require an account to view a stream. And to go further to set the level of account i.e. required just an account, require an account with a verified email, require the account to be at least x hours/days old.
    That way those people we've banned cannot just sit there logged out stalking us.

  6. La noche del 17 de enero, mientras estaba retransmitiendo, sufrí un spam de followers, haciendo imposible la retransmisión debido al constante sonido de las notificaciones, luego continuo el spam en el chat, lo que me obligo a desactivar las notificaciones y activar el chat solo para subscriptores.

    Me gustaría saber si twitch cuenta con alguna protección para estos casos de acoso, y si se podria revisar mi canal y eliminar todas las cuentas falsas(unas 900 cuentas) que desde anoche han aumentado el numero de seguidores ilegales en mi canal.

  7. Dear Twitch Staff,
    I know my opinion is just a shoot in the abyss and nobody will ever read it. Despite this, I am going to make a small attempt.

    I decided to write this, because I witnessed how a single user with a fake account can force to "expel" my viewers. It was not a regular troll, because he harassed not only the broadcaster (me), but also the normal users in the chat. In addition, he followed me, so he will receive information when exactly I will start a stream. I saw pointless to ban him (even if I…

  8. I have an issue with bots in my chat. I don't need to see them listed alongside real users. What I ask for, is that you can right click them and "label as bot". Putting them into a different kind of 'listing' on the 'see who is in your chat' popup. This does not mean you kick them, or ban them or etc... it just means that "you" can see whether they are bots or real users. Or any User on your channel when opening up the list of viewers, can see that they are at the bottom, listed under…

  9. The gamer community is a well known toxic ground for girls, just yesterday while watching a Brazilian league of legend tournament many users were posting toxic and thresh posts about the first Brazilian girl to play in a big league of legend team (CNB), we can't let this attitude go unpunished or just forget it. Twitchs needs to take a step forward and create a campaign to protect and encourage girls to keep on playing and follow their dreams. Twitch also need to encourage players to report this kind of attitude and punish this kind of "bad, for community, gamer".…

  10. It's not unusual for streamers to get banned for accidentaly bringing up NSFW stuff or saying something inappropriate (racism for example) during stream, soo i had an idea to add a censorship option for streamers, this would allow them to censor parts of the stream soo when someone who are sensitive to that stuff watches it they don't need to see/hear what was censored, you guys may also add an option for people to see what was censored but that is all up to you guys.

  12. Many streamers have the same problem where someone is abusive in the chat. In this case, they are banned. It is more than common that the same user would come back on an alt to continue being abusive in chat.

    My suggestion is to notify broadcasters/chat moderators of accounts that are on the same IP as someone who has been banned or timed out, so that they could deal with them accordingly. This could even be extended to allowing broadcasters to IP ban people from their chat.

    Yes, there may be a problem with people using VPN's, however this is…

  13. I have a server for playing. Too many users watch stream and use information from it in the game. I know IP address of each players on my server and want to have ability to ban them on twitch. The idea is that when player connect to my server then my server call twitch API to ban user for viewing stream, when user exit from server then server will unban him.

    I think that it very good feature to help in fighting with stream snipers.

  18. Recently, the mobile iOS app has been automatically changing the video bitrate.

    To not burn through my data plan, I keep it at a certain lower bitrate.

    Also, aren't you trying to keep you costs low?

    So why the F*** did you, multiple times in the last few days, automatically switch it UP to higher bitrates?

    And there's NO OPTION to DISABLE it.

    Keep the function, some people will like it, just give an option to disable it please.

  19. I'm in a Racing League on F1 24 on Saturday's. The commentator streams the overview of the race and I stream my onboard with pedal cams. If I have his permission, can I put his stream in a picture-in-picture live on my stream? It's difficult to talk continuously while racing. Just curious if that would break any of the guidelines on content. Thank you for your time.

  20. Please provide an option to restrict editors from uploading videos to our channel.

    While I appreciate the functionality of the editor role, I never want to give anyone the ability to upload content to my Twitch channel. A rogue editor could easily cause serious issues, including getting the streamer banned.

    I propose creating subdivisions within the editor role, allowing us to customize the permissions we grant editors, such as uploading videos, changing titles, or updating game categories.

    The current setup poses a significant safety risk.
