Starting May 1st Confirmed Chatters will be on by default in every channel. This can be turned off by the channel owner if they wish, but definitely not recommended.
Also if you broadcast you will need to ensure your email address on your account is confirmed, otherwise your stream will no longer work. If your email address is old or fake, you can change your email address under Settings. Please do not contact us to manually confirm your email address as we will not do it under these circumstances.
