WELCOME TO TWITCH

TWITCH ETIQUETTE GUIDE

Mutual respect for your fellow Twitch users and their communities can go a long way towards creating new friendships, partnerships, and a sense of belonging but there’s no two ways about it; Twitch has a learning curve. The platform isn’t exactly user-friendly, which can sometimes make finding your way around difficult.

Here are some do’s and don’ts when it comes to networking and socialising on Twitch in our simple Twitch etiquette for you to follow. Welcome to Twitch.

DIFFERENT CHANNEL DIFFERENT RULES
You can find these on a pop up when you first join the chat. Most rules are common sense, no offensive or derogatory language but some streamers might have more specific rules for their channel.
DON'T BE A CREEP
Streamers already have to put up with trolls; the last thing they need is some creeper hitting on them. Don't make remarks about a streamer's appearance, ask about significant others, or anything else that might make them feel uncomfortable.
STREAM INFO LOCATION
Channels have various information below the video. The channel title will almost always tell you what the streamer plans on doing during the broadcast. Twitch tiles will tell you information about the streamer and more.
SUBSCRIBER MEANING
Pressing the subscribe button on a Youtube channel is the same as pressing the follow button on Twitch. On Twitch the subscribe button is a further way to support your favourite streamers from $4.99 a month.
ADVERTISING
Don’t promote yourself, your work, or other streamers on a broadcast unless the streamer asks you to. It’s not fair to the streamer or to anyone in the chat.
CHECK THE SCHEDULE
Never tell a streamer to play a different game. Return at a later time or check their schedule to watch them play the game you want to see.
ARGUING
Never argue a time out in the chat. You'll end up being timed out again. Moderators will often explain reasons on Discord message to resolve issues.
BOT TIME OUTS
Automated chat bots are programmed to time out links, caps lock spam or to many symbols. Don't worry if this happens.
SUB BEGGING
Never ask or beg to be gifted a sub. This is rude. If you're not able to afford a subscription try using you're free Twitch Prime sub.
EMOTE SPAMMING
Don't spam your own Twitch sub emote over and over. Its fun to show you're own emote but context is the key in this.
VIEWER NUMBER
Refrain from commenting on the viewer counter. If the streamer isn't worrying about the number increase or decrease then you shouldn't either!
DON'T CALL OUT LURKERS
Don't shout out people you see lurking in the chat list as they have chosen to leave a lurk and help support the streamer.
