PROTECT against hate raids – block hate raid with SINGLE button!
by Martocodo on Mon Aug 30 2021.
Twitch is currently dealing with it’s own pandemic – and that is hate raids. Targeting mostly black and marginalised creators – these scripted bot attacks of racial and offensive slurs have swept across the platform like a plague and something must be done.
As well as using the native Twitch commands, to setup a one click or command solution you will need the following:
- Elgato Stream Deck
- Mix it Up –https://mixitupapp.com
With no word from Twitch on a platform level prevention strategy, I’ve put together a quick guide to show you how to protect against hate raids and have a plan in place before one hits. Twitch hate raids are a stressful, horrific and terrifying experience for anyone to endure, so this will show you how to block a hate raid with a single button press on your stream deck.
Stream Deck Setup
- Create a new keypress and set it as a multi action type
- Make sure you have added Twitch actions to your Stream Deck via the customisation options
- Action 1 – Add the “Clear Chat” action
- Action 2 – Add the “Subs Only Chat” action
- Action 3 (optional) – Add a “Chat Message” action to send an information message to your viewers to explain what’s happened and the steps being taken
No Stream Deck? No problem! You can setup a similar protection using the incredible Mix it Up bot which could then triggered using a single command by you or one of your Mods.
Mix it Up Setup
- Create a new custom command
- Set it’s permission level to “Mods” and in advanced options toggle the “delete chat message when run” checkbox
- Action 1 – Add a “Chat message” action type and enter “/clear”
- Action 2 – Add a “Chat message” action type and enter “/subscribers”
- Action 3 (optional) – Add a “Chat Message” action type to send an information message to your viewers to explain what’s happened and the steps being taken
