Help Documentation: FAQ
Purple+ is a promotion platform related to the /r/Twitch Subreddit. Its purpose is to give everyone a chance to be recognised for their uniqueness and achievements. One of the key issues it tries to tackle is the idea that Twitch is just gaming streamers and viewers. We've tried to combat that by accounting for Artists, Developers, Moderators, Community Managers and more!
Even though it is intended for everyone, Purple+ provides powerful and exciting tools to allow streamers to be discovered. Furthermore, it also encourages collaborations to help people grow together as a team.
For the viewers, the site provides streams that they are likely to enjoy based off selections in their profile, and the profiles of others too!
For Artists, Developers, Community Managers and Moderators, Purple+ allows them to be found through a powerful database searching tool. Hopefully, this will help them find work and have their achievements recognised!
In September 2017, TwitchDB was moved to a deprecated state in favour of Purple+. Then, in October 2017, it was completely shut down. This site was created as a replacement. Unfortunately, due to Twitch API changes and a lack of maintenance, many of TwitchDB's key features became broken. In the end, it was decided a complete rewrite was required.
Unfortunately, due to compatibility issues between TwitchDB intros and Purple+ profiles, they could not be transferred directly. The deadline to transfer legacy intros has now passed.
If you are unsure of how to get started on Purple+, we recommend looking at the Help Documentation category relevant to what you are trying to do.

The API scope on Twitch for identifying users includes viewing email addresses. It is not read or stored at any point. Subreddit Moderators will always use modmail on Reddit to contact you where necessary.
The application needs to know your servers so it is able to detect if you are in the /r/Twitch to award Twoos. There is no information read or stored about other servers.
