    I hope all of you realize that the terms of service are more akin to 'guidelines', vis a vis the pirate's code. Twitch isn't going to shut down the account of one of their moneymakers just because their guidelines weren't followed to the letter. It doesn't make any business sense, and Twitch is, after all, a business.

    @anon below, part II I'm sorry, I don't think you understand. Twitch is a PRIVATE COMPANY. They aren't legally obligated to enforce some sort of 'fairness' toward non-partners, or toward less-valued ones. They make the rules. As long as the rules aren't against the law, anything goes. This includes banning someone's channel because someone else (who already has their sub button, and thus, is sharing profits with twitch) simply doesn't like them, and wants them off the website.

    @anon below: hey genius. Twitch has implemented a blocking system. It's called, well, blocking. It works on inboxes. In a chat room, it's called /ignore, and is a whole helluvalot more effective than a ban, since the user doesn't know they're ignored (no way to tell for certain) and will continue blasting salty comments into the void, which ofc the rest of the chat can read, but like, who cares? if it bothers them they should /ignore the poor kid too. They'll have no idea

    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.

    One of my cooler comments got deleted. -_- Let's give it another shot. *activates reddiquette*

    Yeah, so. Here's how you change your IP.

    open command prompt (cmd.exe)

    type /ipconfig
    you will see your IP and other crap

    go /ipconfig release

    /ipconfig renew

    /flushdns

    restart computer, wait a little while (exactly 1 little while, no more, no less)

    boom. IP changed. wb

    Having variety streamers put into a catergory is pretty cool, on second thought. Finding them per-game is a bit difficult, eh? You'd have to find them by luck alone, if you were looking specifically for variety streamers.

    As far as bad foliage goes, that isn't the bitrate's fault. It's the streamer's. Fact of the matter is, the 3500 upload cap, whether intentionally or not, is optimal for a 480p stream. If you want the stream to look better, tell the streamer to stop trying to squeeze 720p30 (or 720p60, makes little difference, other than having the encoder work twice as hard, perhaps leaving less CPU to improve image quality) into 3500. 3500 supports a really, really nice-looking 480p video, even at 60fps.

    The standards are actually not so great for someone with lower internet speed. The streamer may be into games for the 16-bit generation, which look fine at their native resolution of around 320x240, but also run at a native 60fps. Granted, 'source' is all a non-partnered streamer gets, and they are free to set their source as 240p, 60fps. This is in fact the only thing that really puts twitch or hitbox ahead of youtube. A youtube streamer who wants 60fps must also be able to support 720p.

    TL;DR: standards bad. options good.

    How have all of you audio experts before me who'd read this been able to resist the temptation to ridicule it endlessly?

    I digress.

    You can't do that. Twitch servers don't, in fact, receive multiple audio signals from a streamer. They receive one signal. Though OBS would allow the streamer to change the relative volumes of their voice and their "desktop (combined volumes of everything that isn't their mic), the only way you can "fade" the volume levels as of now (and as of forever, until stream hosting sites accept multiple audio signals for different sources) is to go into that chat room and tell the streamer their volume balance is fucked up.
