  1. As a streamer it would be really helpful to do some technical/test streams. The issue would be that we can now ruin someones Stream Streak, or mess up your own stats because you go live completely outside of your schedule and without promoting it.

    The idea would be to have a option on the creator dashboard to activate a "Preview Mode"/"Test Mode". If you then go live you wouldn't go live for everyone but you could test overlays/events/alerts/features you made yourself. This would also not affect anyones stream streak or your own stats (since it's not a real stream)

    Maybe…

  2. Can we get a category made specifically for things like twerking streams of we are allowing them?
    Right now the art and just chatting streams are being flooded with mostly nude people or twerking videos that are flooding out other content.

  3. where mods can change out emotes remove and give mod and vip and etc and add bots would be helpful for the larger streamers because you dont want to give someone full perms of your account but you do want them to have the perms you would trust them with or they need

  4. The new "banned users cannot watch the stream" might be worth adding to the shield mode system.

    So you throw shield mode on and then banned users auto enables if enabled in the shield mode configuration

  5. It would be useful to have the ability to use @mods to ping all the mods that are in the chat in the moment you write. That would be useful in two ways:
    1) chatters could send messages like "@mods I have a question: ..." or any other thing to tell / ask the mods. All mods would get a ping so that they definetly will recognise the message and can reply.
    2) Mods could send information to the other mods in chat. Yes it would be readable for the usual chatters as well but in some case that is…

  6. Would be nice if we could assign a "super mod" of sorts, so they can do extra things, like un-mod other mods? Not every streamer has the time to sort out grievances in their communities, especially in the mod team, so a "super mod" would be nice to have so they can get rid of toxic people from the team, without having to burden the busy streamer.

  7. Hello, I have recently discovered that Twitch considers the following words to be against content guidelines:

    Gay
    Trans
    Transexual

    I am asking that these words be whitelisted in support of Twitch's vast queer community. It can be assumed these words were banned to cut down on trolling in the communities. However, I feel it should be the people who misuse these words who are regulated and punished. Not the queer people who's identities are being attacked and invalidated by having these words banned. This month is pride month and Twitch is showcasing queer creators on the front page every day…

  8. Hide Mod View Icon

    I would really like to be able to hide/deactivate the Mod View Icon whilst being in Non Mod View.

    I don't always need to jump into full mod view less crowded streams. And I usually have multiple browsers open with non mod view and mod view when moderating more busy streams.

    It happens every so often that I accidentally click on that mod view button. (Which is usually not the way I enter it anyway).
    So I just wish we had an option to hide the icon, like the shield and and Highlight Settings Icons.

  9. Currently, while you are able to disable/hide the shield mode icon in the chat bar, this setting affect every mod and the streamer of the channel.

    Instead, this setting (or a new setting) should apply this per person, similar to how the Chat Highlights' shortcut option works.

    Reason: Some mods may be more prone to accientially clicking it, Some mods may simply feel easier without it while others may feel easier that they can activate it faster.

    There's no reason this should only be a global setting, I'm not against the idea of having a toggle to disable to icon…

  10. are you idiots or what?..why have you banned the channel called "Sinicawho"?..it's not her fault - neither she chose to play that video herself, neither she knew what's going to be shown in the video..besides it's a video from youtube, not pornhub..first of all, how can she know what's the content of the video, n second, how can she expect something improper, especially when it's from a site like youtube?..it was i who ordered this video for her and others to watch, to be precise: "Miss Bashful X DBBD- Short King Spring" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83tp9wyHpfM, just like i ordered "Eartheater -…

  11. The Activity Feed already shows "Poll ended" as an item, but doesn't show the results of the poll. Is is possible to include the winning answer as part of that result? Would help in case the mods and streamer miss the conclusion of a poll and can reference it later

  13. The amount of bots i come across saying the exact same thing is ridiculous at the moment the most common one is "cheap views at *" (* being a auto mod blocked link) whenever i come across these if i can i ban and report or just report when I'm not a mod. Given how similar the message always is implementing a auto action tool into the reporting tool so you can select the message and the system automatically compares it to a list of common bot messages to automatically action on the account instead of waiting for…

  14. Currently, users can block whispers from strangers (which most seem to have enabled), where strangers are not "someone you follow, someone you subscribe to, one of your mods, or one of your editors".

    It would be helpful if mods for "someone you follow or someone you subscribe to" were also included in this list but only be applicable if mods utilize the Quick Whisper button within Mod View. Limiting it to only when the Quick Whisper button is used would keep it from being abused outside of the stream.

    This will allow mods to send warnings to users without calling…

  16. Too often people use report brigading to issue false bans on undeserving victims. Do more to ensure that bans are justified before you push the button.

  18. I have reported a handful of accounts that use ablelist slurs as their usernames. I don't want to type them here but I am happy to help provide examples if contacted. Even Beyonce and Lizzo have changed lyrics in recent years to address this issue. I have never seen these accounts dealt with. This seems to be a blind spot in the programming or awareness of the moderation team on Twitch. Please update your guidelines or filters to include ableist slurs ASAP.

  19. Words can mean more than one thing and banning them outright doesn't always work.

    for example: I'm trying to use the word "fatty" in my bio on my channel to mean cannabis joint and it is banned by AutoMod and this is far from the first use case of AutoMod failing to keep up with it's human users and their nuanced use of language.

  20. Now that mod view is on mobile they should add the feature for mods to swap in and out of mod view without having to leave the stream to go back to normal view as well as make all the mod commands work on mobile like /announce /poll and others and make it to were you can pin messages on mobile without needing to have a browser open same thing goes for channel point redemptions and predictions of course giving the mods the option to choose which ones they want on their as well as letting them click to see…
