  1. Costream Chat Colours

    CyborgJellyfish

    The costream bots can be hard to differentiate between. Especially in a room full of moderators. From a streamers' angle, the wall of green names can get a bit tricky to read.

    I would like to see a feature where bots like Scorpbot, HypeBot, etc which are used in multiple channels could have set colours. For example, the costream host could have a lighter green than is used for moderators? I don't know the best colour selection since colourblind accessibility obviously is an issue. Even being able to change the text colour of the costream bots' message itself would…

  3. Auto-upgrade stream rating to game rating

    Have game ratings stored with the game list and auto-set the stream rating to the minimum game rating, when a game is selected for a stream which's minimum age rating exceeds the age rating the stream is currently set at.

  4. AVATAR

    Ability to have square avatars as trying to get an image to fit the 512 by 512 can be annoying even using alpha layer and erasing background it is not a perfect fit. Can we at least bring flexibility to the avatar rather than forced circular dimensions.

  5. Automatic Stream Audience Changer

    As many streamers play a variety of games ranging from all sorts of games I would love to see an option for Streams to have the ability to change Channel Audience (Family Friendly, Teen and 18+) based on the game being played. I as a Streamer do play games that can be Family Friendly but I don't always stream those types of games. Sometimes I stream Horror Games or just plain out Mature games not suitable for younger Viewers and I would love for a feature to be added so I would not have to change that each time I…

  6. Gender neutral channel rating alert

    Change the popup alert for mature streams from:
    "StreamerName has marked his stream as 18+!"
    to
    "StreamerName has marked their stream as 18+!"

  7. sub and follow

    There should be a Follow and SUB button to partners you feature in Chanelone, so the viewers could follow and sub to that partner straight from that page, the same when you host someone else there are those options on screen. thank you Mi><erLove

  8. VIP Role

    Streamers right now can only assign one role to individuals (mod) so if they want to keep special track of an individual they could use a new color to "VIP" someone. So that you can better communicate to the mods who is actually a mod instead of trying to have mods have to informally know who is an "actual mod" and who is an "honorary mod"

  9. Board Games/Tabletop listing needed.

    I play Board Games like Dark Souls: The Board game with viewers. There is currently no game listing for something like this. Perhaps a General Board Games or Tabletop listing could be made to accommodate?

  10. Mapping Code (In Bios/descriptions)

    I think we should be able to use the <map> code in bios/descriptions so that bios can be one big image instead of multiple separate images due to the spacing that beam automatically adds.

    If we had the mapping html code enabled we could upload one image and then add a link to different parts of the image by using an image mapping tool...

    Would give us the ability to use code like this:

    Creating an Editor and a Universal Mod!

    An Editor option for a caster to give to a close friend or someone that they can trust to assist them with there channel/streams and have access to update there game titles and a bit more.

    A Univeral Beam Mod would help many casters both new and veteran streamers a like with new casters they can show them what Beam is capable to do and educate them the possibility extent of beam. As well as assist them and teaching them how to use and setup there profile and commands. They can go around…

  12. Add

    How about creating a role that Streamers/Casters can give to there friend/Team member casters or real life friends, instead of having them mod them and having at times way to many mods in a stream. Only reason many caster mod friends is for respect/courtesy of another caster or friend and also to avoid having them be timeout by a mod that is unaware of them. So if a role can be given by the caster to who ever they like would be great could be a small symbol no need to have them in a different category or color role.…

  13. Host and toggle controls back under the stream window

    I much preferred the host and toggle controls under the stream window over where they are now under the social buttons.

    Now that Legacy Beam is no more I would love to see those buttons moved back.

    The “A_String is off line” screen…Is there any way they could have it display an image of our choosing? As the Xbox crew can’t see the descriptions, I would LOVE to be able to have it read “A_String is currently of line, but will be back again soon!” and have my schedule under it so they known when I’m going to be online again.

  16. Craft

    For Channel titles we could do Crafting, or if possible; crocheting, knitting, cosplay, needlework, ECT.

    When streaming I have to use art and it ends up being misleading to those who want drawing and such.

  17. Fixes to the Follower tab to better highlight hosted channels.

    Please fix the hosted channels part of the Following tab.

    Should say 'Hosted Channels' instead of 'Currently Offline'.

    Should show the hosted live channel in the same way as the 'Streaming Now' channels appear but include a panel saying who out of the channels you follow are hosting them.

  18. Follow Button Cooldown (Reduce Empty Follows)

    As we all know there has been an increase in the amount of followers that everyone has been gaining in the last month due the Xbox merge. Unfortunately, the vast majority of those followers are empty ones that never return. I was wondering If there could be an optional timer that could be added to the follow button which required a user to be in the stream/typing in chat for a certain amount of time before they were able to hit the Follow button.

  19. Unfollow if banned

    If a person is banned they should be automatically unfollowed from the channel so the follower count stays accurate.

  20. Beam Stories

    I think it would be a great idea if Beam has its own social area for channels! Where the streamer can post statuses onto their wall and other Beam Users can react and comment back!

    Then on the homepage maybe add like a bar what updates to people you follow with like a green circle to notify you that the channel you are following has posted an update.
