    Relevant Update  ·  Ana responded

    We apply IP bans in Chat based on users' Moderation actions in certain cases. We don't currently plan to publicize the logic we use because we think it would make it easier for bad actors to bypass the restriction.

    I am unsure if this has been raised in comments already, but what about the prolific use of VPNs currently or any of the other methods of hiding IP? If people are intent to create hostile accounts, they are likely to seek methods to bypass restrictions on IP also. In addition, I am unsure of the legality of this application in all countries.

    Relevant Update  ·  Twitch responded

    We’re happy to announce that we have released an additional update to address these concerns. Streamers can now prevent their banned users from watching their livestreams. You can find and turn on this feature in the Moderation settings section of the Creator Dashboard, through the “Stop banned users from viewing stream” toggle.


    Please note, this update 1). does not prevent users from watching livestreams from an incognito window or while logged out and 2). does not prevent users from viewing VODs, clips or highlights. We plan to explore extending the functionality of bans further, including but not limited to preventing VOD and clip playback.


    In addition, we’ve made an update so that users that are blocked will now automatically be blocked from watching a streamer’s livestreams.

    We will leave this thread open for your other points regarding preventing view of other content types and account creation.

    I have a few questions regarding this:
    1: Are developers, people that take personal interest in developing things for twitch use in a non employed fashion? If so, there may be a conflict of interpretation here that would potentially result in abuse or misrepresentation. Individuals could claim they are developers and speak on behalf of twitch to those unaware.
    2: Would this mark people offering hosting the badges as twitch endorsed individuals? This could have a similar issue to the above.
    3: Who gains here?
