  1. Allow 3 characters usernames

    As a person with a 3 characters name, it would be nice to have the option.
    Why 4 allowed and not 3? plus for example, on Forums I was allowed to use my 3 characters name, so why not beam the streaming service?

    Might seem a small issue but I would think that exposing my real name, would be better than making up a fake name that will not reflect who I really am, especially when I like my name and I like to put it on public whenever possible.
    Often other users take it, but I found it awkward…

    • connect beam forum to beam profile

      Is there gonna be a possibilty to link your forum profile on your normal beam profile page. Like we place our twitter and facebook etc. So people can come check out to see our interests in the forums and so on.
      not sure if it is also visaversa.

      Sorry for my bad english.

      • More analytics, Engagement and Retention.

        I'd like to see how long the average viewer stays tuned in. You can call this "Audience Retention".

        I'd also like analytics for Audience Engagement, which would be comprised of the percentage of audience who use interactive controls or chat.

        For example:

        Last 24 HRS:
        Audience Retention: 3hrs 23minutes
        Engagement: 37.2%

        or something like that

        • Do not refresh stream pages on maturity rating

          I would like this to be tackled in another direction, such as covering the stream until such point where the user dismisses the notification to resume watching if the maturity rating is increased.

          • I think that beam should build in more ways to earn xp verses just watching and also buying pro. Beam should give xp bonuses for hosting

            I think that beam should build in more ways to earn xp verses just watching and also buying pro.

            Beam should give xp bonuses for hosting and also communicating in chat.
            Beam should give everyone the ability to be partnered but in tier levels like hit level 20 in xp gain the ability to have people sub to you for .50 and level 60 up the price to 1.99 that sort of thing. i think if the masses heard that everyone has the opportunity to make money on beam it would blow up. Also other things could be earned in…

            • WWE Interactive

              So this was an idea I thought I'd pitch, where fans can book matches for WWE 2K players. The prompt is simple, on screen, buttons for the in-game roster will appear. The streamer picks the match type and the number of participants. the viewers then choose who they want to see fight from a list of the over 130+ in game roster members or, if the streamers chooses, a custom list of up to 100 custom characters. Or both, depending on the streamer's preference or the viewers preference. once the timer is up, the top picks are revealed to the…

              • Stream Team Page

                I've noticed the stream teams browsing page seems to have the same stream teams in the same exact order no matter if there are people streaming from the teams or if there are no one streaming on the teams. Also almost every time I attempt to scroll down to look through teams it almost always locks up and destroys the browsers functioning(FireFox). On Chrome it works slightly better.

                What if the stream teams page were to just shows the teams that have streamers currently online? Doesn't have to be based on viewers or anything, but just being live. Would kill…

                • Total the users for specific chat types

                  In the chat show viewers thing, please add the number of viewers per chat group next to it.

                  Example:

                  Viewers [73]
                  Pro Viewers [4]
                  Moderators [6]

                    • Stream channel name in browser tab

                      It would be great so that when in Chrome or any other browser, my page tabs of Beam show the name of the channel I'm watching. As you can see from the attached screenshot, I can clearly see who I'm watching on Twitch but not on Beam (on the same person's channel for both platforms). This wouldbe a nice additional feature of the UI

                      • Account Security Log

                        It should have things like logon history, logon ip, last channels visited, oauth stuff thats active, etc.

                        Basically this should be the page to go to if someone thinks their account is compromised

                          We have this today for our administration team and will work to expand access to account owners to evaluate their own account activity for security in the future.

                          No current timeline on this feature, but absolutely something we want to do.

                        • Ability to Rearrange Teams Display

                          A Small little feature but would be cool: The ability to change the order in which the Teams are displayed on your channel.

                          For example, I could move the Beam Crates Team (Love Heart Logo) to the center (See attachment)

                          Maybe this feature could be added with the addition of more team slots unlockable via Sparks <3

                          • Tab to see who "friends" are watching

                            In the browse tabs, there should be an other tab so you can see who your friends are currently watching.

                            Friends being people who follow you and you follow, putting then under streams that you currently hover over and see who is watching.

                            I think it would be a cool addition to see where your friends are hanging out

                            • Can we get voter totals back on polls?

                              It is great being able to see the % of people in each category but when we do polls where the number of voters matter it forces us to use outside sites to do the poll. I would like to see the option to at least see numbers instead of %.

                                • Jackbox Games as "Interactive"

                                  While there is no direct developer interaction between Jackbox Games and Beam (though... with the microsoft acquisition maybe there can be) it would be nice to be able to show up on the list of "Interactive" streams anytime someone is playing this. The games themselves are played by the viewers when streamed.

                                  Essentially, whenever someone is playing one of the Jackbox Games that allows for web play they will be listed as interactive.

                                  These games include
                                  Jackbox Party Pack
                                  Jackbox Party Pack 2
                                  Jackbox Party Pack 3 (coming this fall)
                                  Quiplash
                                  Drawful 2

                                  ETC...

                                    When browsing streams on the Browse page, after clicking on a stream, if you decide to go back to the Browse page using the Back button, you're put back at the top of the page. I would like to see the Back button put you back at the location of the stream you were just watching.

                                    • Kill stream remotely

                                      Grant us the ability to kill the stream remotely.

                                      If something goes wrong with your interactive stream but you are not next to the host computer and are unable to remote in, you might want to kill the stream and have it start hosting someone else so that viewers aren't wasting their time.

                                      [Last week, someone spammed a few keys, which stopped my script from taking any inputs; I then had to wait a few hours to get home in order to resolve it as my remote tools were not working.]

                                      • Make the network tab look more like the stream browsing page.

                                        Currently the network doesn't tell us what game a given person is playing or their stream title. Attached is a sample card mockup, excuse the terrible art skills.

                                        • Unicode Emoticons

                                          It would be fantastic to be able to use all unicode emoticons natively in chat, similarly to Discord, Slack, and many other chat services. When users (primarily on mobile) send Unicode emotes, they show in their Unicode form, not integrating with chat at all.

                                          An emote chooser for these would be great, as well, again similar to Slack's - organize emotes by Unicode grouping, with "custom emotes" (memes, partner, etc.) in their own categories. The current emote chooser is not extremely intuitive, and it's generally hard to find any emotes.

                                          Thanks!
