Chat Verification Criteria should also prevent users from following
Regarding chat verification, it is good that you can set it to email/phone verification if an account is newer than a certain period of time, however I have confirmed that while this prevents an account from chatting, this does not prevent an account from following a channel without verifying.
In the past I have been harassed by people (and seen people harassed) by users who never said a word in chat. Their method of harassment would be to create an account with revealing information about the streamer and simply hit follow. They would be banned, however the account would be deactivated shortly after and a new one created in its place where the process would be repeated, infinitely if a VPN is utilized. Most streamers use some kind of notification system, either in chat or on the screen (or both), some have events lists that keep the information on stream.
The way that the current verification system works does not protect streamers from this very insiduous method of harassment. Please make it so verification methods also extend to follows. I do not want people following me if their account is less than a week old (unless they can verify via their phone)
As a side suggestion, please also make it so users can submit suggestions and feedback anonymously. Most streamers method of dealing with harassers is to ignore them, however they risk being brigaded, or seen to be susceptible to harassment if they raise it here.
Una medida muy pertinente porque tener muchas cuentas adicionales con un sólo correo se volvió perjudicial para casos de acoso a los streamers.
Me parece una excelente idea y ayuda a evitar el acoso con cuentas falsas
En las ultimas semanas he tenido el "honor" de recibir en mi canal a un grupo de trolls, los cuales han estado dandome follow con cuentas falsas cuyos nombres eran acosadores, intimidantes, amenazadores y muy molestos. Este acoso ha llegado al punto de que he tenido mas de 100 follows de pura cuenta falsa y hostigadora y pues obviamente no me siento feliz.
Mi sugerencia es:
Que las cuentas nuevas no puedan dar follow hasta tener una semana de antiguedad como minimo
Que los correos verificados solo puedan hacerse una cuenta adicional
Que las cuentas adicionales tarden una semana en ser eliminadas.
Con estas medidas, los ataques de los trolls deberian verse reducidos en gran cantidad
There should be an option for streamers similar to how follower only mode works, where you can set an amount the account must be following before they can chat, where you can restrict an accounts ability to chat based on how long ago they've made their account. This would significantly cut back on trolling and especially ban evasion.
It Is common that people will follow just to have their name shown o9n screen or just to be shouted out so i suggest making a default 15 seconds delay until the follow is verified
