    OBS Studio already supports multiple channels for local recording, so I guess if the Twitch ingest supported multiple channels, it could be easily implemented.

    Aside from being able to mute Copyright-violating content selectively, I second the idea that multiple channels would be valuable for viewers wanting to selectively choose what to listen to.
    For example, I might want to listen to the streamer's voice, but the game they are playing is too noisy, so it would be cool to be able to disable the game audio.

    I think it would be nice if streamers get to choose whether to multi-channel or not (just like when setting up audio channels for local recording in OBS), the Twitch player would only need to offer a combo-box for viewers to choose what to enable/disable.

    And if the option to individually edit/delete/upload audio channels on VODs was added, that would open many possibilities, from removing Copyright infringing parts of the audio manually, to uploading replacement tracks, or maybe even adding commentary tracks, or dubbing to other languages... But that's maybe going too far right now XD.

    I'd like to point out that this feature would be very useful for those of us who speak languages that are not gender-neutral.

    For example, when streaming in Spanish, the line:

    "Hello <username>, welcome to my channel!"

    Ends up being:

    "¡Hola <username>, bienvenida/bienvenido/bienvenides a mi canal!"

    Knowing how to address people who choose to use this option (it should be optional, of course) would be helpful.

    I've been trying to do this on my own by throwing a bunch of emojis on my stream titles and explaining their meaning on my panels, as well as having visible warnings on-screen, but just like with chat rules, if viewers don't have to actively acknowledge this information via some sort of pop-up, most won't notice.

    As others have commented, I would propose that not only categories have "de-facto" content warning tags, but that we can, on a per-stream basis, choose which tags to apply, just as we can change categories or the stream title.
    So, if I'm streaming something innocuous, like say, Minecraft, and decide to switch to a violent game like say, DOOM, I'd love to be able to manually add the "gore/violence" content warning to my stream (assuming the category doesn't already include it).

    It would also be fantastic if viewers could filter by these tags, so if, say, I have photosensitive epilepsy, I can filter out all streams with that content warning.
    Not to mention that this would be invaluable for parents wanting to better help their kids with the content they watch.

    This also could help greatly with very broad categories like "Just Chatting", which desperately need more fine-tuning.

    I personally try to emulate this functionality by throwing a bunch of emojis on the stream title, with their meaning explained in my panels, as well as visible warnings on-screen, but since these require viewers already knowing how they work, it won't help people joining for the first time (or people not reading the panels, which tends to be most people).

    Ideally, I would love to be able to select a series of flags for my content when setting up the stream, just like setting the title and category, that would result in a pop-up for viewers joining the channel warning them of the content.

    It would also be awesome if users could filter by these tags. If I had photosensitive epilepsy I would love to be able to filter out streams marked as "dangerous" for me. This filter could just show a warning icon on the stream thumbnail instead of hiding them completely.

    We are happy to announce that we have released an update that addresses some of these points.

    Channel Banned users will no longer be able to view the chat, and they will also be removed from your Chat list. There is an issue that has caused us to pause this temporarily, but we expect a fix to be out very soon – stay tuned to the Twitter thread below for the update.

    Additionally, if you Block a user, they will not be able to subscribe or follow, and Blocking them will automatically unfollow them.

    https://twitter.com/TwitchSupport/status/1243643979897417730?s=20

    How to Block a user: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/how-to-manage-harassment-in-chat#BlockWhispersandMessagesfromStrangers

    I will leave this topic open for your points about being unable to fully view the remaining content of a channel, and account creation.

    First of all, my full support to people being harassed, and I second the need for tools to manage the problem.

    My personal need for this functionality is different, and I'd like to point it out:

    On my streams I often have adult-oriented content, not "porny", but rather adult subject matters in the conversation, as well as games with content I don't think younger audiences should watch without parental supervision/consent.

    I do my best to clearly signal this content, not only by enabling the "mature audiences" switch, but by adding a 18+ tag to the stream title, as well as icons indicating the content (explained in my panels).
    I even have a glowing neon 18+ sign on-screen and even more warning labels.

    None of this prevents kids from popping up (and kids being kids, it probably encourages some of them), and none of this prevents parents from being concerned when their kids bring up the funny thing that twitch person said.

    Since kindly (or not so kindly) telling kids that they shouldn't be watching without their parents knowing doesn't work, I sometimes need the ability to not just ban them from chat, but to make sure they can't watch (parents won't care that the chat is disabled if they can hear my ramblings about adult subject matters on the speakers).

    And I'm sure there are many more use cases where being able to block people from viewing the stream is desirable.

    I understand that this is not a trivial issue to solve, given how people can just make sockpuppet accounts or the like. Just wanted to share another scenario where this functionality might be needed.

    I'm developing lightweight, simple to deploy, client-side alert notifications.
    Using intermediary external webservers adds both network overhead as well as extra complexity.

    It would be great if all data fields in the channel (bio, panels, even uploaded graphics) could be made multi-language by having a combo box allowing language selection, so we can manually type in (or upload) the translations.
