    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.

    @cutepuppys99 that's not what I said. I do NOT want toxic streamers to get support yet with this option they'd be able to ban good people and no one could do anything about it. People report them but nothing is ever done to stop or even so much as punish them. The bad streamers get all the views and attention and the good ones are left to struggle. Yet that's perfectly ok for you I guess

    @NaikotekiYuko I'm struggling to understand what you're trying to say here cuz your English honestly isn't that great but I can understand it enough to respond. Did it ever occur to you that some streamers are corrupt? That some streamers do in fact ban for no reason? With this option, a streamer can shut ANYONE out of their community. Even people who genuinely care and just want the streamer to grow. But I guess that's what you WANT to happen cuz it's clear you support this idiotic setting that allows toxic streamers to manipulate their audience

    This is a HORRIBLE idea! If someone is banned for a reason that isn't their fault, yet they still wish to support the streamer because some people actually DON'T hold grudges, this makes them unable to do so. A banned user can't watch the stream, chat, share the stream, or literally ANYTHING that benefits the streamer. This setting is ridiculous and ought to be removed!
