“Put Your Shirt Back On!” cries Twitch

Twitch: Clothes now required (as if they weren't before).

Twitch has been having problems with people who don’t ‘dress appropriately’ for streaming. Apparently, the streamers have indeed gone wild, as they try to sit in front of a camera showing off how flabby their stomachs are getting now that winter is coming.

Not everybody needs to see this, however, which is why Twitch updated their Terms of Service section to include a brand new dress code for these people who need a little bit of extra direction. They even go so far as to remind people that they sell t-shirts, and let them know that there isn’t a good reason for why they aren’t clothed properly.

Nerds are sexy, and you’re all magnificent, beautiful creatures, but let’s try and keep this about the games, shall we?

Wearing no clothing or sexually suggestive clothing – including lingerie, swimsuits, pasties, and undergarments – will most likely get you suspended, as well as any full nude torsos*, which applies to both male and female broadcasters. You may have a great six-pack, but that’s better shared on the beach during a 2-on-2 volleyball game blasting “Playing with the Boys.”

* If it’s unbearably hot where you are, and you happen to have your shirt off (gents) or a bikini top (ladies), then just crop the webcam to your face. If your lighting is hot, get fluorescent bulbs to reduce the heat. Xbox One Kinect doesn’t zoom? Move it closer to you, or turn it off. There is always a workaround.

We sell t-shirts, and those are always acceptable. #Kappa

Neither males nor females are exempt from this rule. Gaming is obviously not the appropriate time to be showing off one’s body. Thanks to this new rule, you will no longer worry about opening up a Twitch stream and witnessing something that’s obscenely inappropriate compared to what you were really trying to watch.
