Twitch Streamer ‘Novaruu’ Gets Ban for Promotional Giveaway

Published

on

Here we go again. Twitch is back at handing out their bans in confusing, and controversial, fashion, and just handed ‘Just Chatting’ streamer Novaruu for an odd violation of their terms of service.

Novaruu took to Twitter to address the ban, and also question how the length of her ban warranted the same length of bans handed out for those who are banned for nudity.

According to Dexerto, under section 9(iii) of the platform’s Terms of Service, streamers are not allowed to “make unsolicited offers, advertisements, proposals…to users of the Twitch services, including…things related to promotional giveaways.”

Streamers must also abide by the United States law when doing giveaways like this. Alabama, Hawaii, and Utah have banned raffles in their states. Novaruu currently resides in Texas, but is still subject to regulations under Federal law.

The Federal Trade Commission stipulates that “sweepstakes-type promotions that require a purchase by participants are illegal in the United States.”

Published

on

We have rolled out a new update for the Gamactica mobile app for both Android and Apple. Below are the patch notes:

  • Fixed Notifications issues: we resolved the issue where not all notifications were being pushed.
  • Notifications Menu: many users reported that they would prefer the menu tab for Notifications to be more prominent on the Menu, so we moved it to a higher placing for easier navigation.
  • Members Menu item: Officially renamed ‘Members’ to ‘Gamacticans’ in the menu tab
  • Gamactica Global: re-developed the Gamactica Global section, and created a LIVE tab present on the Menu. This will direct you to the Gamactica Global section where you can see streamers from around the world who are streaming live on Twitch, and find live channels based on language, location.
