    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

    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.
