Is it me or has twitch trained people to talk shit in chat 24/7? There's no hope on that site. I think it has something to do with the emotes and hopeless moderation system.
Nothing new here, preteens will continue to act like preteens and grown-up bigots will continue to act like bigots. It's not really the website that is at fault, its the trolls themselves and their lack of manners/maturity/education/sanity/loving parents. Animosity shields you from any kind of repercussion, and some people will only behave with such threat of punishment in place. This is why Youtube keeps asking it's users to use their real name.

I think a combination of Facebook linking, slow down and active moderation should do the trick.

Don't even pay attention to the twitch chat it's full of cancer and meme spouting kids.

I also think that it'd be a good idea to get more dedicated moderators and reinforce rules more aggressively. Although it won't get rid of all of the problems, it will make the chat a better (or at least more tolerable) place.

The problem is that if you ban all the bad words, people will find words to use in place of that. It would almost be better to not have chat in the first place.

I don't even want to deal with a bunch of little a-holes (Excuse my language) eating Doritos and playing Call of Duty, so I generally avoid the chat anyways. The breaking point for me with it was when Cookiezi went online during one of the matches and everybody was freaking out in the comment box and everybody left to go watch him play.

I just hide the chat section when I'm watching something on twitch. I like the nice big screen, and seeing all the hateful speech just puts me off. So, until it is more heavily monitored, I am content with watching it full screen. Especially when there are so few matches remaining (for this portion of the World Cup, since Taiko will be starting up in the next two months).

Generally, a 2 (or more) minute slowmode will help reduce the spam and make the chat more readable. When it's easier to read, it will be easier for the moderators to ban all the retards.

slowdowns are no use in a channel with over 5k viewers (almost 8k peak during quarter finals, imagine finals), you should just instantly ban everybody that cancers in there

looks just like average #osu to me

that's kind of a rare case though. he's the best, most popular player in the game and he already didnt play much anymore. so him getting on was a big deal, and most people watching OWC weren't vested in it, just something to throw your spare time at.

I didn't know you could hide twitch chat. I was going to say its kind of hard not reading it when I'm waiting for the next song to start. I've seen some some really big channels where its subscribers only who can post, and the chat is a lot more mature when they do that. Does having more mods cost money?
Soulg
its harder to find people that will volunteer to moderate the chat (or that are able to, I know that for me the matches happen in the middle of the day where I have classes etc)

Yes it's a bliss to be able to hide the chat. I just use the tiny arrow on top right to hide chat and expand the video at the same time. Full respect for mods who have no choice but to man their posts.

I think Lach's idea is great. Just need a service like twitch that auto saves the stream on server.

If I want to read people talking about OWC like civilizated people I read #owc while I see the matches. I really don't care about twitch. Too much people speaking their native languages which I don't understand. I don't even care if they are saying good or bad things or just spamming.

Why not just use #owc?

I mean, if anything peppy could just embed the stream onto a separate page specifically for owc and add a panel for the web IRC, and have everyone linked to that page instead from the client. It'd probably be more civil as there'd be a more daring consequence for inappropriate behaviour and players that don't actually play the game won't be able to spam the chat with nonsense.

Ya, so flaming and racist to be honest. Better insult me.
It's just my opinion.

We used #german to talk about the games in our language. Sure, some doesn't but
it doesn't flood the entire chat with kanji and stuff, so that noone could read anything anymore.
I'm not a native english speaker, but I would still try to talk with people in english.

And now, grow up kid. What is this forum for when people can't tell their opinion.

This thread is slowly becoming twitch chat

I do agree that the owc chat should strictly be kept english as the commentating and language are all english too.

I'd say make more language-specific channels opened for owc.
