  1. Make whispers have their own box

    I really like how twitch does its whispers. Having a separate area for sending/receiving prevents one from accidentally sending a whisper to the wrong person, or broadcasting it in chat.

      There are some exciting opportunities to leverage Xbox Live’s persisted chat infrastructure to help us build out an awesome Beam messaging/whispering/alerting system, and we’re evaluating the best “Beam friendly” way to present this now. No ETA on a release, but would love feedback on this feature.

    • Adding mute function to chat

      Many users want the function that can ignore someones unpleasant comments by themselvs. Is it possible to add the funcion like this at an early date?

      • Add spark-purchasable icons next to names in chat

        Lots of people want the ability to change the color of their name in chat, but Matt and James have repeatedly said it's not the direction they want to go in for the chat experience. As an alternative, why not come up with a series of icons, similar to the Stanley icon that graces the Staff names, that can be purchased with sparks, and that a user can then choose to have adorn their name?

        • Spoiler Notification

          Since everyone is streaming games the idea of spoilers comes up a lot in the chatroom. Either talking about a game the streamer previously hosted or the current game. Some users who missed the stream do not want to read about a spoiler so we are forced to limit the chat. It would be nice if there was a spoiler tag that we could use that would display a "Spoiler" message where you could not read it without either hovering over the text or highlighting the text.

          Not sure if this is easy to implement into your chat system but…

          • Highlight your name when tagged in chat

            When tagged with the @ symbol, it'd been nice to have it highlighted to be easier to read and see you got tagged. This is especially useful when all chat names (except staff, pro, mod etc) so you don't miss something.

            • Chat Filter

              I'd like to be able to have an official chat filter that replaces bad words with *** or whatever, so my channel can remain Teen rated - and those who accidentally slip a bad word into their message aren't completely censored

                • Option for deleted messages not to show to streamer

                  What if Beam had an option where the streamer could opt to not show deleted messages from chat, but the messages still showed to the mods? This way, if you have a mod team that's on the ball, then when they remove an inappropriate message, the streamer isn't getting distracted by how terrible some of these messages can get? In a lot of cases, the streamer will never even see the messages, making the whole point of trolling a fruitless endeavor, but the mods will still have proof of the messages and can report and ban as necessary.

                  I know…

                  • Have BeamBot mention in chat that there is a Poll

                    The Poll option is great, but many people miss it because it's at the top of chat, where no one is looking. It'd be great if BeamBot could say "Poll started!" so people would know to look.

                    We get a Global notification when it ends, and that can be missed too since it's on the bottom of the screen. But having the bot mention it in chat where everyone is looking already would work great.

                    It could even say something like "Poll Started - Vote above!" or similar to indicate where the poll actually is.

                      • "Team Members" Group in Chatters List

                        I was thinking that it would be useful if in the viewer list, it would highlight people who are in the same "Primary" team as the caster into another section. Similar to how it splits mods, Beam Pro members etc

                        I think this would be a useful way to highlight casters that viewers might not have discovered yet. As if they like one member of a team, they might be interested in other members too.

                        Thanks for readiing

                        • Ability to mute spammers

                          Ability to mute users. Especially people that tend to spam the same sentence. Continually spamming other people's chats off the screen is extremely rude. Sometimes the caster and mods don't do anything and allow this behaviour. So I think we as users should have more power to deal with users like that to make our own experience better. Having a toggle to mute by username would be perfect.

                          • Partner emotes should have one prefix

                            After subbing to a good number of casters recently, I've noticed some clashing emotes (Only 1 set but they still clash) and it makes me wonder, why are partners not made to have prefixes similar to twitch?

                            There are a number of advantages to this for a start.
                            1. There is going to be no clashes if when someone gets partnered, they have to pick a prefix that isn't taken. So for example the two clashing emotes I mentioned which are RocketBear and GhostFromTexas both using :rage may be :rbRage and :ghostRage retrospectively.

                            2. Having a prefix in my opinion…

                            • Color name

                              Default Users could have a range of colors, and Pro Users could have custom colors! :D
                              As a streamer, it's hard for me to keep up with chat because all the names are the same color, and i sometimes get lost in messages, not knowing where i left off/not knowing who is who in chat.

                              As a viewer, I love having my own color and being able to be different in chat!

                              • 'Post-it' in chat.

                                Can you make a 'post-it' message in the chat? (see attached file)
                                I guess this will be a good way to communicate an info as a "permanent post-it" (it will shows despite the stream is offline) or till the streamer change it.

                                    • Toggle Viewer Count in Popout Chat

                                      I would like if we could hide the viewer count in the popout chat. I don't like seeing the number as it can effect my performance when I stream and I would just rather have the option to hide it.

                                      • Custom emotes, local and global

                                        non-partnered get 3 emotes that only work in their own chat. Partnered streamers get an additional 2 local emotes and 4 global emotes +1 per so many subscribers they have.

                                        This gives partners incentive, but it makes the stream more personal for the non-partnered ones as well. This will really help smaller streamers with building a community and bigger streamers with spreading their community.

                                        Maybe one emote per team as well that works in the chat of all members of the teams.

                                        I personally love BTTV's local emotes. They brought for me the join back in streaming on twitch. It…

                                          Spell Check as I type please I beg. Every other field on the entire internet I ever type in has it. I remember way back when Beam chat had it. Before chat got "Fancy". I would much rather lose some fancy to get spell check. Even this forum post I'm typing out has Spell as I type!
