    The biggest problem for me, is that I have VERY good view numbers on VODs. Like more than all but 2 streamers of the games I usually play (when looking at viewer numbers to follower number ratios). Like I am nearly 700 followers, but get 100-300 views on all streams.

    Now VODs are natively hidden, those numbers are dropping. Not all viewers are aware of the "/list" trick. This change penalises streamers who don't have the highest viewer numbers by pushing them to the bottom, or out of sight totally.

    Surely, twitch, you should be trying to encourage healthy competition of streamers in a category by giving them an equal platform of discoverability? It's in your own economic interests for more streamers to hit affiliate level, hiding less viewed streamers out of sight can disenfranchise them and make them stop streaming altogether. If the top viewed person in a category has little competition, they have no incentive to keep being fresh and innovative, and no competetive inspiration to push them further.

    Nobody wanted this change, which will autoplay the highest-viewer-channel in a category you are browsing, and it's also all but impossible to browse past-broadcast videos based on a search result, unless you know to add "/list" on the end of a URL.

    This is making it harder for streamers who are not at the top of the list to get noticed, by game-category browsers. It's also stopping all streamers from having people watch their VODs after the stream, as they are unfindable without the extra steps of adding "/list" to the URL, and if you are browsing multiple categories, thats a lot of work.

    There is no positive benefit to streamers from this recent change, except for if you are the top streamer in your game-category. For the fringe game I usually stream, that IS me, but even so, I really hate this change and many others do too. It makes discoverability harder.

    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.

    There is a similar word "retarder" which is part of a truck (euro and american truck sim games). "Retarder" is also a device in the baking industry for a piece of equipment which slows down certain processes (a cold storage area). And "******" is also a verb, as in to slow down processes. It has plenty of other usages.

    Additionally, my view is that offensive words, with more use, over time become less offensive. Using the word "******", even as a derogatory statement, if someone does something bad in a game/stream, does not mean, and never has meant that the word user believes neurodiverse people of all types are in some way inferior, stupid, or less than other members.

    Rather than a ban, members upset by such a word would do better to question the user's motivations, reasonings and beliefs around the issue.

    I am also a neurodiverse person on the autistic spectrum, and I do not get offended by this word.
