You can ban viewers from typing chat messages or timeout your stream for a specific amount of time. By default, a ban lasts 10 minutes, but you can shorten it to two minutes or less. A message will be displayed to both sides, explaining the reason for the ban. You can also add a stream marker and a description to the twitch ban command.
Timeout a user on Twitch
Using the timeout command on Twitch will allow you to stop someone from talking to you in chat for a specified amount of time. For example, if you wanted to stop a user from talking to you for 60 seconds, you could type the command /timeout username 60. Once the timeout period is over, the user’s messages will be removed from your chat.
Timeouts can be extended for seconds, minutes, hours, days, or weeks. They can even be extended to two weeks, which is equivalent to 1,209,600 seconds. If someone’s channel is on timeout for more than 2 weeks, Twitch will ban them.
You can timeout a user on Twitch by logging into your account. The timeout interval is configurable, but you must provide a user’s name and user id. The default timeout is 60 seconds, but you can also choose a different period.
You can also use the timeout mod command to warn your viewers and let them cool down. While it will prevent a user from sending messages to you, it does allow you to read their chat. To timeout a user on Twitch, click on their name, and then click on the clock symbol in the right corner.
In addition to timeout, you can also disable the chat mode for viewers. This will prevent spammers from sending messages to your audience and will keep your chat flowing smoothly. If your Twitch channel is very popular, you should use the slow mode filter for chat. Loyal fans tend to spam their chat boxes, so slow mode is essential to avoid this.
The /ignore command is a great way to block spammers on Twitch. You can also timeout a user for violating the Twitch rules. You can also choose to ignore a message sent to you by another user. This feature is available to all Twitch users.
Another command for controlling the speed of chat is the unVIP command. This command removes the VIP role from a viewer and reverts them to a regular follower. VIPs are special members of the channel’s community. Streamers can only have a certain number of VIP roles. Having a VIP role means that your viewers are important to you.
Block a user’s messages
If you’re tired of receiving annoying messages from a user, you can use the twitch ban command to stop them. The command ‘/block USERNAME’ will block a specific user from sending you messages. You can also block a user by clicking on their name and clicking on the ‘Block’ button on their badge. You can also use the ‘Block’ command to ban a user for a specified time.
This command will block a user’s messages and comments. It’s available on both desktops and mobile devices. The user will be banned from sending you any messages on Twitch until you unblock them. Once you’ve blocked a user, all their messages will be deleted from your chat. If you’d like to continue communicating with the blocked user, you can unblock them using the ‘unblock’ command in the channel settings.
Once you’ve blocked a user, you can unblock them by following their username and changing their color. You can also change your username color your text if you’d like. The ‘unblock’ command will unblock the user’s messages and posts from your chat server.
Another option for blocking a user is to disable chat mode temporarily. This allows you to send messages to your followers without the user seeing them. The ‘ban’ command also disables’slow mode’, which allows viewers to chat with you at a slower speed. You can also limit chat to followers, subscribers, or only people with less than 30 minutes of interaction.
Twitch offers built-in tools for blocking hateful or vulgar terms. These tools have made it easier for streamers to police chatrooms and prevent potential violations of their Terms of Service. The use of these tools is important for the safety of the community. Without proper moderation, people could misuse Twitch’s chat to harm others.
Besides the twitch ban command, you can also use the /timeout command to temporarily ban a user. When you use this command, make sure to include the user’s name and the time in seconds. Once the timeout period has expired, the user will be permanently banned. If you want to give the user another chance to behave, you can use the /unban command.
Add a stream marker
If you’ve ever banned someone on Twitch, you probably know that you can unblock them. But did you know that you can also change their username and text color? You can do this by binding this command to a keyboard key or stream deck. You can also use this command to send a private message or whisper them. Regardless of whether or not you’re the one blocking them, you can still do some fun things to help them out.
The “add stream marker” command adds a stream marker, which is a marker at the current timestamp. You can also use it to add a description to your stream. You can add as many as 140 characters to the description. You’ll need to be a broadcaster or a channel moderator to use this command.
Adding a stream marker is an easy way to show your viewers when you are live. This will also help you to highlight the best parts of your stream. You can also use this feature to create a highlight video. It also helps you remove dead air from your broadcasts. This feature is great for showing support for other Twitch streamers, which will hopefully lead to a return favor.
After you’ve added a stream marker, you’ll see notifications when it changes status. Click on the message and you’ll see a context menu where you can approve or deny it. You can also open a User Info Dialog by double-clicking on a message in the channel you want to watch. You can also see if the stream is live or inactive. By default, this data is cached, so it can take a few minutes to update.
To prevent spam, you can set the uniquechat command. This command prevents users from sending spam messages or copy-pasted text. You can also disable the chat mode by using the “unsubscribe” command. However, be sure to remove this command afterward!
Another option you can enable is a followers only chat. This feature will prevent random viewers from joining your channel. This way, you won’t have to worry about hateful viewers contacting you. This is another way to protect your stream and community. By making the chat visible only to your subscribers, you’ll prevent hateful viewers from harassing you.
Add a description to a twitch ban command
If you have a problem with another user in your channel, you can add a description to your Twitch ban command. A description can include up to 140 characters. The description can be helpful for the moderation team and will increase your chances of getting the troll banned. Moreover, it will help them track down the exact violation.
In addition to providing a detailed description, you can also promote a user to a moderator. Once the streamer does this, the user is automatically promoted to a moderator and gets all moderator privileges. It is important to choose the right moderators for your channel. They should be trustworthy people who understand the culture of the channel. The wrong mods can ruin a whole channel.
Adding a description to your Twitch ban command will make it more visible and make it easier for others to understand what the command means. When you send out this command, it will appear in the channel’s chat. This will prevent unwanted attention from the user and will make the ban more effective.
Twitch chat commands can be confusing and difficult to remember. However, you can easily add a description by following a few simple steps. First, go to the settings of your channel and go to the “Moderation” tab. Then, type in the command you’re sending, followed by a response.
Adding a description to a Twitch ban command will allow the streamer to explain why they’ve banned the user. Users can also report trolls by giving a clear description in the description field. It’s also possible to report the user by reporting them in chat or whispers.
