The limited amount of accounts per email is actually an extremely good idea. Yes, people could continue to go make new emails to make new accounts with. But setting up a new email, then making a new account and verifying the new email would take much longer than using the one email to make infinite accounts. Since the process would be significantly harder, I would probably deter a lot of people from trolling.
Please, PLEASE DO THIS. Twitch you need to do SOMETHING. I am constantly harassed by banned people coming back with new accounts. I once had someone come back with upwards of 12 different accounts over the course of an hour. That's at least one new account every 5 minutes. It was disruptive and upsetting, to say the least. I have had countless other issues with banned users that I wont get in to. But needless to say, I support this whole heartedly.
Also, something that I just remembered and did not include:
There is an argument against this idea because many people say "The follow belongs to the follower, not the streamer, and the streamer should not have the right to take it away."
I said this to my friend the other day and he said "I can buy a membership to a gym, but I can't misbehave in that gym (for example streaking, fighting, etc) without getting my membership taken away,"
So that's something to think about as well.lexasaurus shared this idea ·
Trolls as followers is a problem that I and many other streamers struggle with. It is a problem for many reasons. Seeing as this post is over a year and a half old, I have made a new suggestion with a bit more detail and several suggestions about how the problem could be fixed. If you are still interested in helping us achieve this goal please go see the new suggestion here: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/297558-general/suggestions/35977906-allow-streamers-to-remove-followers-eg-banned-ch
