As an avid user of Twitch.tv, I've seen firsthand the disparity in treatment between large and small streamers. When a small streamer gets suspended, it often feels like they're left to fend for themselves with little to no support from the platform. On the contrary, some big Twitch.tv users have been suspended up to seven times with seemingly no significant consequences. This is not only unfair but discourages smaller content creators who are trying their best to grow their channels.
Everyone deserves a second chance - or even a third - much like YouTube's three-strike rule. It's disheartening to see that big Twitch.tv streamers seem to get unlimited appeals while smaller ones are left in the dust.
Accordingly, we urge Twitch.tv to review its suspension policies and ensure fair treatment for all its users regardless of their follower count or popularity level. We believe that everyone should be given equal opportunities and chances on this platform which has become such an important part of our lives.
Please sign this petition if you agree that small Twitch streamers deserve better treatment and equal opportunities as their larger counterparts on the platform.
What’s crazy to me, is that I tried to appeal a suspension , and they denied it (which is fine and understandable) but then decided to upgrade my suspension from 7 days to 30 days just for me appealing 😂😭 is that normal ??
