    I agree, this would be especially helpful! Adding my support for this idea.

    Many streamers are not able to look at the stream manager dashboard frequently, especially when playing games that require close attention for extended periods of time.

    Many use Text-to-Speech (TTS) apps so we can chat. If we had an EventSub event `channel.ad_break.upcoming`, that would be very helpful to give us an audio signal.

    It would also be great to configure the alert timing before the ad starts. 2 possible options for configuration:

    1. Pass a value in the `condition` section of the request, where we would normally send the `broadcaster_user_id`, e.g. `ad_notification_mins`, or;
    2. Use the default notification time the streamer has set in the Ads Manager > Ad Notifications > Upcoming Ad Break Notification dropdown, or;
    3. Both! If the field (e.g. `ad_notification_mins`) is not provided, default to the streamer's prefered Upcoming Ad Break Notification.

    A majority of ads on web and TV apps should now have normalized sound. We are still continuing the work on this and will update the status again when it is fully complete!

    As a channel manager, do you mean streamer? If not, I definitely see the need for what you are suggesting. I want to leave your feedback on its own for further consideration (from the editor perspective), but I do have two ideas for you that I think might be worth supporting that also address the different issues you have highlighted:

    - https://twitch.uservoice.com/redirect/suggestions/40125406

    - http://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/923368/suggestions/33356122

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I wrote a user script to support this. Right now it's fairly limited—you must trigger it with Alt+T (doesn't work with click) and if you change the global theme, you need to refresh the tab. You can install the script here: https://gist.github.com/techygrrrl/aa770cb85ff858ee7f675ffdf3bd06aa

    If you want to learn more, I wrote a blog post about this: https://blog.techygrrrl.stream/light-mode-twitch-chat-theatre-mode

    I'm guessing there's probably also a browser extension out there that has solved this problem a bit better than I have, but I don't know any right now. Maybe I'll make one to solve this and similar accessibility concerns.

    I initially thought this was a good idea and had upvoted it but removed my vote after thinking about it more as I think it would be more harmful than good. This would be harmful to people who previously had personally-identifying usernames whom now wish to remain more anonymous, e.g. to avoid stalkers or other risks associated with using their government name on social media, or to avoid outing themselves as trans (in the case that their dead name or gendered words were in their previous username).

    As a workaround, to learn more historical information about current chatters for moderation purposes, broadcasters and mods can type /user <username> in the chat to get a history of a user's chat messages, including moderator comments. Full history regardless of username changes is available for the username provided, assuming you know the *current* username. There is a limitation that this command won't work for old usernames, e.g. if someone behaves poorly in chat and no moderation actions were taken at the time of the incident, if you try to do anything after they've changed their username (e.g. days/months later), you risk not being able to look them up if they've changed their username. This requires moderators and broadcasters to act within a reasonable amount of time of the event, usually immediately, which is not an unreasonable expectation given that's what they do now to keep chats safe (banning, timing out, deleting messages as needed while live).

    And maybe this is a hot take, but any third-party system that relies on a mutable property as a primary identifier (like usernames) and does not uniquely identify users with their Twitch user ID, a publicly-available attribute, is a poorly-designed system. Usernames, display names, and user ID's are all available with every incoming chat message via Twitch's IRC chat system, as well as via the Helix API endpoints (e.g. Get Users → https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-users), so these third-party tools are given the resources to do this correctly—if they don't, that's on them, and if you are limited by these tools, I suggest finding other tools. I don't think Twitch should be outing historical usernames as a workaround for these poorly-designed third-party tools.

    Hey all! Thanks for this thread. We recently deprecated anonymous Cheering after we discovered it was being abused. While we understand some viewers prefer not being recognized for Cheering, we made this change to ensure a safer experience for those who were negatively impacted.

    We’ve also heard your concerns on what this means for the future of Bits. This deprecation is not related to any plans to limit Cheering with Bits on Twitch, and is solely focused on providing a safer experience for our community.

    Please restore anonymous cheering.

    Many viewers prefer to cheer anonymously. Anonymous cheerers are in my top 10 for overall support from cheers. I'm not happy about this change.

    Streamers can already prevent abuse by:

    a) disabling sound and TTS alerts
    b) setting a minimum bits amount at the cheermote or message level

    Anonymous cheers don't even include messages and it's just the anonymous username that's used (unlike follow-bots which often include offensive usernames with slurs).

    Alternatively, Twitch can build a configuration feature into the product, allowing streamers to opt-in to disabling anonymous cheers in their channel. This would be much better than disabling it for everyone.

    Please restore anonymous cheering.
