I've been bouncing back and forth (in my head at least) about how I want to set up my overlays but leaning more towards running the game "full screen" on the stream. One of the (only) things that makes me hesitant about it is having the chat overlay be visible without being in the way.
The first suggestion is to have a couple of longer delay options in the "Remove chat messages after X Seconds" box. I think it would be cool to have maybe 30 second, 1 minute, 5 minute, and 10 minute options. I like the idea of the chat being removed after a period so it doesn't stay in the way, but 7 seconds feels like it's just too quick sometimes.
My second suggestion would be a couple more customization options with the look of the chat overlay. I'm mainly interested in a background transparency option. Again, while the chat messages are up I find myself having to decide between a fully opaque background which feels jarring as an overlay or no background which makes the text difficult to read depending on what it's displaying over (and this just compounds the frustration with a 7 second display limitation).
