Twitch is one of the best streaming services which has many features and categories. Of course, being one of the best brings some difficulties in terms of safety. Therefore, the company launched a new feature to improve its safety. Streamers will be able to share info on Twitch banned users list with other creators.
Streamers can see now one another’s banned list
With an update on the Ban Evasion tool, creators can share their banned list, and see the banned users from another channel. In order to use the Shared Ban Info feature, streamers need to create a sharing request. Thanks to this request, streamers will be able to share ban info with other partners, affiliates, or mutual followers with creators.
Streamers have to send each other a request from the Shared Ban Info section of the moderation settings. If both creators accept the requests, they have an access to the Twitch banned users list information from the channels. Streamers can have up to 30 sharing connections for now.
Banned users will be shown with a flag that shows their ban on other channels if the streamer turns this feature on. However, only the creators and their moderators can see the flagged chat messages. If streamers mark the banned users as trusted, they will be seen as normal users in the chat.
Twitch announced the Shared Ban Info feature at TwitchCon Amsterdam last weekend. A twitch spokesperson said the platform was “excited about this tool as it’s a first step in empowering not just individual streamers to make personalized moderation decisions, but communities as a whole.”
They also added that, “While Shared Ban Info is just the latest customizable tool in the arsenal we offer creators, it adds a new level of scalability by expanding the impact of individuals’ moderation decisions, and ultimately helping community members help each other — something they already do organically in a myriad of ways in Twitch’s uniquely engaged environment, every single day.”
