  1. Although we enter notes with the new unban system for deny or approve, these aren't shown in the Bans or Mod Comments in the User Card - please have these shown here as well for good record keeping. Additionally, including when a request was submitted and who approved/denied it would be useful, it is only shown in Mod Actions at this time.

  2. Twitch has launched new Auto-Mod settings, and included Misogyny, while failing to include a category for Misandry.

    Misandry is defined as; dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against men (i.e. the male ***).

    This description is perfect for the failures of Twitch in recognising the hourly verbal abuse and violence that men experience on their platform.

    It is worse that this violence against men is completely ignored by Twitch, and Twitch allows it to happen.

    I believe Twitch's behaviour is illegal, as they are discriminating against all men based on their gender.

    What will Twitch do to remedy this…

  3. Make users use bits to send unban request, and giving the streamer the option to select the custom amount of bits.

    So even if the streamer denies the appeal, they still keep the bits.

  4. Right now i can't chat on any twitch cause its asking for me to enter a mobile number. and despite my repeated attempts at getting SOMEONE to disable this stupid targeting on my accounts, nobody is listening. And no I'm not giving my mobile number. u have my verified email and i shouldn't be scrutinized to enter a mobile number. If you need mobile numbers on my account then i'm not using twitch period. and unsubbing from everything and moving to another platform. the fact you single me out for using twitch-tools.de and a vpn shows you don't care about…

  5. Treat similar looking character as identical when checking blocked words to prevent automod evasion.

    So if the word "Apple" is blocked, the word "Àṗṗĺĕ" would be blocked too.

    Blocking every variation of a word would literally take 76 days at 100 terms per 30 seconds (rate limit by Twitch). This is for obvious reasons not a solution. And the current moderation tools are thus obviously insufficiant.

    This feature request is in response to the ongoing hate-raids mainly targeted at LGBTQIA+ people

  6. Sometimes accidents happen, and a mod might accidentally delete a comment too hastily, delete the wrong comment because chat moved, or just simply misclick on chat.

    There's an option to unban, but not to undo deleting comments. The comments are still there and visible (if you're a mod, or using the BTTV extension) so there must be a way to un-delete comments when mods make a mistake.

    Being able to undo that mistake would help prevent the mod and the person whose comment was deleted feel bad about the situation, especially because ALL the person's previous comments get purged from…

  7. Allowing Mods and Creators to view if a user has been banned from other channels.
    Also updating the Ban function to require a reason for Ban. Just a check list.

    e.g. if someone comes into my channel that has been banned from another channel i can see that they have been banned for Harassment or Spamming

    Will allow Mods to keep an eye on users bouncing from channel to channel

  8. There is a glaring loophole in chat history logging that has been present for years since the chat logging system started. It involves changing your name via Twitch's name change feature. Once someone has changed their name, you can no longer reliably pull up their entire chat history. It is effectively halted for the old name, and wiped for the new name so long as you do not have their original name.

    I'll try to explain this as simple as I can.

    Let's say I have actual years of chat logs under the name "desertp" on "examplechannel"

  10. As a mod for multiple channels within the same community being targeted by view bots, I would like an option to see the people who are viewing the stream vs. just the "users in chat" list as it does not show any bots, and the numbers do match up 99.9% of the time. I'm still uncertain of the distinction between the two metrics, and on that note, if there was a count for the users in chat, for regular users, VIPs and moderators alike, that would be very helpful so at the very least I could spare myself from counting…

  11. Edit the effect of Timeouts for members with Editor role to be similar to members with VIP role.

    Timing out Editors removes their editor role, and the Streamer has to assign it again. It's similar to when a Streamer times out a Mod and they lose the Mod role. We ask that the Streamer have the only power to remove the Editor role, not by a simple timeout

  12. When clicking to view a users chat history, add an option to view the messages within the context of the chat/stream (for example: an option to show 10 lines before and after the message in question). Sometimes people say things that look bad out of context, allowing mods to see what everyone else was saying may help clear up misunderstandings.

  13. Emote spam is a constant annoyance, it would be great for channels to have an option that blocks emotes in chat. There could also be an option where only channel emotes are allowed. A text-only mode or an emote blacklist would be excellent.

  15. Hi so I wanted to get into streaming but the idea of getting doxxed is sketchy.
    Twitch runs on AWS which is a large cloud platform. Part of that platform is a service called Amazon Comprehend. Comprehend tries to detect if data is personal info, like addresses, etc.

    https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/machine-learning/detecting-and-redacting-pii-using-amazon-comprehend/

    It would be super cool if this could be integrated into the AutoMod so doxxing can't happen as easily.

  16. Enabling the ability for streamers to upload/download lists of banned terms via .csv or text files would:

    1. Allow streamers to easily add banned terms to their list, as currently, the only way to add banned terms is to type them in one by one.

    2. Allow communities of streamers to share their list banned terms with each other to create a more comprehensive list of banned terms specific to that community

    3. Allow streamers to edit their banned terms in a more flexible format

    Altogether, it would allow for much more flexibility and less headache with banned terms.

  17. A feature that I believe that mods should have is a emergency call button. When used it sends the streamers information to 911 dispatch. And allow mods to communicate with dispatch operators to let them know whats happening. When the button is used it also cuts off stream from anyone who isnt a Moderator. This way a Twitch streamer doesnt have to worry about giving out any personal information and can still rely on thier mods to contact help if something were to happen.

  18. Upfront: Please open a User-Voice section dedicated to the Mod-View - Why does the Creator Dashboard have one and the Mod-View not?

    1. In the user view (clicking on a user in mod-view or when reviewing an unban request), seeing when a user was timeouted or banned is so useless without seeing the message the ban was for. Please just show the last 5 messages they had before the ban and put a link to the chat-thread where I can look at more. I don't want to scroll 900 messages to see what an old ban was for. This should be…

  19. Allow Mods to filter users in chat by whether they have a subscription, have previously had a subscription to the channel, or are unsubscribed. This would make it much easier to filter out bot accounts from hate raids.

  20. 안녕하세요, 평소에 트위치를 자주 이용하는 사람인데요. 오늘 한가지 굉장히 불쾌한 경험을 해서 고객센터에 도움을 요청합니다. 스트리머에게 일방적으로 폭언을 하는 사람을 완전히 쫓아낼 수 있는 방법이 없나요? 그 사람을 쫓아내면 다른계정으로 찾아와서 또 스트리머를 괴롭히는데, 이걸 막을 수 있는 방법이 없는건지 궁금합니다. 방법이 없다면 제가 아끼는 스트리머는 계속 그 사람에게 고통받아야하나요? 피드백 부탁드립니다.
