    I put together an image of what the selection on Twitch could be like: https://i.imgur.com/JDtfR4d.png

    This would help clarify which game is which, similar to like Kitaru and others have suggested.

    For the URL (the ID) of each game on Twitch, just add the IGDB ID at the start of the URL just like Uservoice, so for example:
    /category/tetris--1 -> /category/8197-Tetris
    /category/tetris-1994 -> /category/236647-Tetris

    It appears that categories are manually adjusted as they are reported in the comments. So here's my suggestion.

    The games of Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been split from the originals, but the names are the same, forcing you to pick based on the cover alone. Adding the suffix " - Reignited" makes this clear. None of the three games have localised titles, so just taking the default title and using it for all regions should be fine.

    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/spyro-the-dragon-reignited
    "Spyro the Dragon" -> "Spyro the Dragon - Reignited"
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/spyro-2-riptos-rage-reignited
    "Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!" -> "Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! - Reignited"
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/spyro-year-of-the-dragon-reignited
    "Spyro: Year of the Dragon" -> "Spyro: Year of the Dragon - Reignited"

    The same can be done with Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy. The titles are again not localised so all regions use the same titles.

    The first game of the remaster is missing on Twitch, but the IGDB entry is https://www.igdb.com/games/crash-bandicoot--2
    "Crash Bandicoot" -> "Crash Bandicoot - N. Sane Trilogy"
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/crash-bandicoot-2-cortex-strikes-back-2017
    "Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back" -> "Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back - N. Sane Trilogy"
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/crash-bandicoot-warped-2017
    "Crash Bandicoot: Warped" -> "Crash Bandicoot: Warped - N. Sane Trilogy"

    I suggest using "-" as the separator for the suffix even for the first game of both franchises for the sake of consistency, and to hint more at that it's the remake of the first game, and not the trilogy itself as a package.

    I had the idea before, but a much better idea for Twitch is just adding the ID from IGDB ... because my idea of adding the year will cause links to break if the year changes (when more info comes out).

    Take the idea from how UserVoice has the ID of the post and category before the name in the URL.

    Using the suggestion from before, using Sonic the Hedgeghog, you will get:

    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/3192-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the original, ID: 3192)
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/88912-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the remaster, ID: 88912)
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/6231-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the 2006-version, ID: 6231)
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/198248-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the ad for the film, ID: 198248)
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/category/207208-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the C64-port, ID: 207208)

    The IDs on IGDB are very uneven in length, but it ensures that the game has a unique URL that never changes, and can be applied to all categories across Twitch, without having to do a case-by-case basis.

    ---

    When searching for a category, the year is not listead, but including that would help a lot as well. I think it would also help a lot if consoles were listed instead of the number of followers and watchers of the category, personally at least.

    So typing "Sonic the Hedgehog" would give:

    Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)
    GEN • X360 • iOS • Wii • Win • PS3

    Sonic the Hedgehog (2013)
    And • XONE • PS4 • iOS • PS5 • Win • NS • XSX

    Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
    X360 • PS3 • Wii

    Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)
    iOS • Web • And

    Sonic the Hedgehog (2021)
    C64

    Some notes would be if there's a port, it has a separate ID on IGDB but isn't included as a separate entry on Twitch, and could be merged with the category, which is the case of Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) ID 6231, and the Wii-port ID 264886 (which was cancelled, which Twitch could take into consideration too). But then also the abbreviations must sometimes take languages into consideration, such as "GEN" would be for en-US only, but "SMD" for every other language.

    Twitch should consider adding the year to the link of the category. So currently there's https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog which is merging every title of the same name.

    For example the year could be added at the start so every title starts with 4 digits:

    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/1991-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the original)
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/2013-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the remaster)
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/2006-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the 2006-version)
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/2020-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the ad for the film)
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/2021-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog (the C64-port)

    Then Twitch could also list the year of the game when searching for a game, and also let users include the year in the search. For unknown years, that could be 0000 in the link, and ???? in the list.

    Currently when you insert Sonic the Hedgehog to set a category of your stream, you get a list of many options, but none with years. Having years included would help tell them apart.

    The year of release would be fetched from IGDB, just like how the titles and covers are fetched from IGDB. The old legacy links without the year could redirect to the one it was defaulting to in the past. In this case, 1991-Sonic%20the%20Hedgehog

    There are currently two entires with the exact name "Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back" that links to the same category, featuring two different covers. One being the PS1-cover, and one being the remade cover.

    Currently Spyro Reignited Trilogy has all games duplicated with a "- Reignited" variant added to it. But Crash does not.

    I would suggest that Crash at least have "Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy" as a single category, which I think Spyro should have as well. Users have reported that this unified category once existed, but it really should be brought back. No need to have it for each individual game, just one single category is fine.

    After looking into this, Twitch specifies cooldowns internally in seconds and allows you to specify any value of seconds (up to presumably 604 800 s) using API. Using for example Streamer.bot allows you to set the cooldown to 30 seconds (shows up as 0 minutes on Twitch Dashboard).

    I have seen redeems that behaves unexpectedly if you redeem them around the same time. But the redeem only lasts for less than 5 seconds. So having the cooldown be 5 seconds would resolve this issue.

    Summary: Twitch already supports seconds, and only need to add it to the UI.

    With double the price of tier 2 compared to tier 1, logically we should have the same number of slots as for tier 1. This would encourage viewers to upgrade to tier 2 since they could get access to so many more emotes.

    Encouraging more people to subscribe to tier 2 is also benificial to Twitch, since people start paying twice as much per month.

    I have seen some few streamers going so far as to starting a second channel and running both side-by-side as a way to access more emotes. By instead by having more emotes on tier 2, it's easier for the streamer to just run one channel and for viewers to subscribe a single tier 2 instead of two tier 1s.

    Tier 3 does cost 5 times more than tier 1, but having an additioal number equal to 3 times the slots of tier 1 might be a lot. But at least having the same number of slots is reasonable.

    Since the web-version shows a countdown for cooldowns, Twitch might be unsure how to best implement this. One simple method is to display the longest timer out of the two (since there's a global and personal countdown).

    This does mean that the timer could jump up in time if another user redeems it (5 min personal cooldown, 1 min global cooldown: when the personal timer is down to 30 s, and someone else redeems it, it will jump up to 1 min). But this already happens currently when someone redeems it and the timer shows up (going from 0 s to 1 min in cooldown).

    Twitch could also have two different messages depending on if it's the personal countdown or global countdown.

    Definitely needed.

    Some redeems have long cooldowns just so a single user can't spam it. But the user can still redeem it whenever it comes available again, making it so other users don't get much of a chance to use it.

    Having a longer cooldown per user and shorter global cooldown; there will be a moment where this user can't redeem it but other users can.

    In my personal situation. I have it so users can pick my outfits and queue up outfits. One or few users like to queue up a long of outfits on their own. I don't have a cooldown on these redeems, but having a cooldown wouldn't even prevent this from happening. Only a cooldown per user would at least slow these users down.

    I don't mind them doing it, but a cooldown per user would at least give other users a chance to insert their own requests inbetween.

    Some additional minor comment:
    - Have it remember your last option in the dropdown for quicker redeems.
    - Having the option to add icons for the dropdown (completely optional for the streamer) could make the dropdown easier to quickly select from.
    - Dropdown with dividers by having a line with just a single -
    - Dropdown with groups/headers by having a line start with a single -
    - When using the grid of icons, having the option for how many icons it should display per row, will be very useful in certain situations.
    - Also with the grid of icons, having blank rows resulting in empty slots, can help with organising the grid.
    - In addition to icons there could be large images, useful for picking outfits for the streamer's model, with it being similar to in videogames when you pick outfits.

    I think a good idea would be if a moderator can't refund their own redeem, since in my experience, moderators refuding themselves has for the most part been malicious.
