  1. I would like to See the Spark emotes box smaller

    I would like to see the Streamers Spark Emotes have it's own tile. That way the video size isn't affected by the streamers made spark emotes. So it would keep the standard size video display. As well the Emotes Could be up to 30 in that tile and you could hover your mouse over for the full description of them before you spent you spark if you wanted. Not sure if 30 is the right number but wouldn't want it to interfere with any streamers bio or any other important information they want people to know

    • "Browse by Rating" on the Homepage

      During a stream, there was a discussion on how he dislikes raiding other streamers that have a "Mature" or even a "Teen" rating (he prefers to keep all content to a level where his young kids could watch). That got me, as well as others during the stream, thinking that something that needs to be a thing is a "Browse by Rating" on the Homepage. This will make it far easier to check on other streamers that have content of an equal rating without having to spend time clicking on each stream individually to see what it's labeled as (as…

        • FTL

          Add a toggle to filter shown streamers to only those using FTL. Reasoning: it's the highlighted feature of the site, and most interesting/compelling, yet a user won't know who's using FTL unless they check each streamer themselves

          • 2 small tweaks to interface

            First, add a checkbox in options or on interface itself, that allow controls to be hidden by default. Its rather annoying to tap that "toggle controls" every time entering new channel.
            Second, allow messages like "this channel has been marked as mature by the caster" to be disabled. Maybe checkbox as well. Again, its annoying and usually useless(while i understand it to be related to age restrictions, its pointless for people who are past puberty). I watch streams on my second monitor(15") and that message appears right on top of "toggle controls". Combined with first issues, its a lot of…

            • Display Selected Game Name Filter

              Show the name of the selected game in the "STREAMING NOW" row if a game filter has been selected (instead of the 'streaming now' text). Reasoning: the user expects to be shown streamers who are currently streaming so it's a little unnecessary to say that they are indeed streaming (especially since when they're not streaming it is specified with another divider, and currently streaming streamers have viewer counts on their cards, further visually differentiating them), and game names are sometimes so long the full name doesn't fit nicely in the sidebar or on the cards, a nice screen-wide bar like…

              • Allow Users to favourite games

                Similar to Twitch's functionality to follow a game. favourited games could show up on top of the Game List, regardless of viewer count.

                • Ability to add custom backgrounds

                  Beam is amazing and has a set of backgrounds to choose from. What I fail to realize is how are custom backgrounds not a thing yet?! :3

                  Being able to make your own personalized version of a background for YOUR channel would SURELY make each channel much more beautiful distinguished, and yet be a very apt and awe-inspiring reminder that beam is capable of enchanting the interaction between the viewer and the streamer c:

                  • emoticons

                    To show all of your current subscriptions emoticons so you know which ones you have available and can quick select them in other chats.

                    Also good if you don't auto re-sub and are unsure if the emote is still available to you.

                    • Bigger Emote Sizes

                      As a graphic designer I feel like the emote sizes are a bit small. I feel like 32x32 should be the right size to make an emote whilst 28x28 being a compromise, at the moment I believe that 24x24 is too small compared to other websites.

                      • Follower sorting.

                        On the 'Followed Channels' and 'Your Followers' tabs, it appears that users are sorted by account creation date. While that isn't a bad way to do things, being able to sort by other criteria (specifically by when they followed you, on the 'Your Followers' tab) could be very helpful. Being able to review recent followers, and go to their pages to see if they stream, would be nice.

                        • Korean Language Support

                          I am pretty sure this is where I would post Language Support. We should have the Korean Language support added on here. Especially having the username system support the language as well. Another thing we could add if that hasn't been added yet is a Language Audience we can set in our channel so when users join and their language isn't of the stream settings it will let them know which audience it is pointed to. For those who welcome all forms of language in the channel can set it to universal or even select the languages they are most…

                            • Use franchises to create "hubs", instead of using individual games to organize and display Beam game list

                              There are many games that have some sort of expansion or new sequel or even old version of the game. Sometimes I have even seen games with same name displayed as if it was two different "Games" here on Beam.

                              So my idea is to make Beam better than the "Twitch way", where sometimes I got to see: Aion, Aion: Assault on Balaurea, Aion: Dark Betrayal, Aion: Upheaval.
                              And even if all channels were on the same latest expansion/Version, they were all scattered around with different names because the streamer didn't bother to update the game.
                              So I always wished…

                                As someone who frequently hops onto new and/or pretty small Indie games (as well as some bigger games), that are not yet in the Player.me or Beam databases, I'd like to be able to set my currently streamed game to null as to not having to stream under a different game or a tag like "Podcast".

                                  I would love a way to sort by audience. That way, I can look specifically for 'family friendly,' 'teen,' or 'mature' audiences and follow a few of each. Then, I can know who to raid safely on my channel's ideals.

                                    I would really like to be able to stream interactive 360 videos and be able to take advantage of this new technology. I thought it would be a really cool idea
