Twitch Banning Simp Emotes Over Harassment

Published

on

Twitch is taking measures to prevent harassment within it’s community by banning “simp” emotes, which has negative connotations, according to Kotaku’s Nathan Grayson.

According the report, Twitch has been deleting simp emotes as far back as late February, and has gone the extra mile by rejecting and/or deleting streamer variations of the term, from big streamers to small streamers as well.

One of the most popular female streamers, Imane “Pokimane” Anys, who also runs one of the platform’s most viewed Twitch streams recently announced on her stream that her “FedSimp” emote had been removed by Twitch “for targeted harassment and bullying.”

While, at times, the simp emote is rather innocuous and used humorously (considered as a joke within the community), it has been used to target and harass others, and it has been used so at a rate that apparently had exceeded what Twitch is comfortable with.

You can read more about the action, reactions from the community, and examples of the fallout, via the full Kotaku article on their website.

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.
