Why You Got Banned From a Twitch Chat

Streamers have full control over the other users’ access to their channel.

They should follow community guidelines regarding their followers’ behavior in the channel’s chat. Streamers are expected to ban spammers and users posting racial, violent, or otherwise abusive messages.

The rest of the chat rules are completely up to the streamer to create and enforce. Stream owners and moderators can even ban people without any other reason at all.

Once you figure out why you got banned from a chat, you can try to appeal this restriction. Keep in mind that you can only appeal to the streamer directly, not to the platform—and only if they provided you with a way to do it.

It’s up to the streamer’s goodwill to grant you the right to actively participate in their chat.

What Happens When You Get Banned From a Twitch Channel?

You’ll be able to use your account the way you did before a channel owner banned you. This is why a channel ban can easily go unnoticed if you’re not looking for the signs, which are:

  • Not seeing the steamer who banned you in your Following list
  • Not being able to see or access the chat on the said steamer’s channel
  • Being unable to whisper, refollow, host, or buy gifted subs on that channel

Viewing experience won’t change for you—you’ll be able to watch this streamer’s content without other restrictions.

Can I Get Unbanned From a Twitch Channel?

The authorized way to appeal your suspension on a Twitch channel is by filing an Unban Request to the streamer directly through the chat column. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Go to the channel from which you’re banned
  2. Navigate to the chat column
  3. Find the Request Unban button in its interface
  4. Check your email for confirmation that you’ve sent the request

You may have to wait for some time before you can submit the Unban Request as the streamer might have set a cool-down period that has to pass before you get the chance to appeal. They also decide how long your ban will be—temporary or permanent.

Bear in mind that if after some time you still can’t access the channel in which you are interested, it may also be because the streamer you were following got suspended. There is an easy way to check this.

How To Check Who Is Banned on Twitch

If you suspect that you cannot access a certain channel because the streamer’s account has been suspended, here’s how to check who is banned on Twitch:

  1. Go to TwitchInsights website
  2. Click the Other Insights drop-down menu
  3. Select Check User Status
  4. Type in the nickname or ID of the user you want to check

Can I Evade Any of the Suspensions?

Don’t try to circumvent any of the suspensions, including a channel suspension, since it is against Twitch T&C. If you disregard these rules, you can end up on this list of the suspended users and even have your Twitch account banned indefinitely. With the IP address ban included in this sanction, you’ll have no way of getting back on the platform.

If you already got in trouble and had your account temporarily suspended, DoNotPay might help you file an effective complaint letter and get unbanned.

Here are the detailed steps for filing a suspension complaint via DoNotPay:

  1. Fill out the name of the platform on which you are banned or suspended
  2. Type in your account details
    1. ID
    2. Email address
    3. Phone number
    4. Other identifying details
    5. The date when you got suspended
  3. Share your concerns, if you have any, about being discriminated against on the basis of your nationality, race, religion, gender, etc.

DoNotPay will use your answers to compose a strong complaint letter and then send it to Twitch.
