  1. New Homepage

    Firstly, thank you for your hard work keeping twitch running and improving! That said I have a few issues with the new layout.

    It goes without saying that this is my opinion only, but when I first opened twitch with the new homepage I felt a bit lost with the clip feed on one side and the promoted channel feed on the other. It feels cluttered and a tad dated. Also without the margins on either side I don't see how things can be advertised as well. The biggest issue I have however, is that I can't seem to find…

    • Make a Disable / Hide Option

      I would like an option to hide the Pulse. It's cool and all but I really don't see the use for me and it's kind of annoying being forced to have it there.

        • Way to label or keep notes on stream channels

          I propose that we be given some way to label channels with symbols, text, colours, Twitch emoticons, or whatever else that will be visible when looking at a stream's thumbnail (from the directory, our list of followed streamers, a Community, wherever). This will allow us to easily categorise streams as, say, Kappa (good for goofing off) or ResidentSleeper (chill stream). This would also be useful in lieu of a blacklist so people can know where /not/ to go (maybe a place is too offensive for someone or not offensive enough for another and they just don't want to waste their…

          • Take "based on your viewing history" off the landing page.

            Front page should not have this stream of trash "based on your viewing history." Put that on my personal page. Front page should be featured streams and browsing genres/games.

            • The new home page is a big step in the right direction but how about customization?

              I love the fact that more things are becoming easier to access from the home page makes for a much better ease of access feel to it but it is very hard to get a page that has an agreeable to set of elements for everyone as we are all so different. So how about building an API that allows everyone to customize there home page with the elements that you guys are introducing it feels great to have an organization of featured streams, games list, and feed lists. An API that would allow us to add these elements and…

              • Allow users to flip which side Pulse appears on

                Currently it has this very weird imbalanced feel in terms of design placement. It gives a little bit of a jarring, disorienting feel because you have a bar that doesn't scroll at all by default (Followed Channels, until Load More... is clicked), then a section that scrolls a very large amount (Pulse) followed by another section that scrolls a medium amount (featured). I think this 'flow' issue could be solved by putting the featured streams on the left and putting Pulse on the right, or at least allowing the user to choose which side Pulse is on.

                • Autoplay on the front page is extremely irritating.

                  It's absolutely not relevant to my interests - I'm perfectly capable of clicking the streams I want to listen to. Please give me the ability to disable this default behavior - or better: disable it period!

                    • The split into columns makes no sense to me.

                      I miss the prominence of the old front page featured/top streams player. Moving it off to the right column really diminishes the feeling of it, and I expect it'll make people pay less attention to it. This is unfortunate because personally I've been introduced to a lot of content I wouldn't have found otherwise through this feature. If it had always been pushed off to the side I expect I'd have missed a lot of content.

                      But even pushed over, it still dominates the page and creates this very odd structure of a short, content-light "main" column on the right…

                        • make Pulse more customizable by adding Settings

                          I miss some "settings" for pulse so I can decide whose updates (clips, vods, posts) I want to see and whose I'm not interested in. I don't want to be swamped with all of it, especially since I assume I'm not the only one who has 'favorite streamer' and those you only watch when your favorites are not streaming.

                          Even though I really appreciate your work and ideas for improving Twitch, my favorite thing would be being able to turn off pulse completely if I decide I am ot interested in it.

                          • Too cluttered, give an option for less stuff on the front page.

                            There's too much on the front page. Having to scroll to find the games list is a mistake. Having video playing when loading a page is a mistake. Make the website more simplified, not more cluttered. I want to be able to get to finding the game, and streamers, I want to watch quicker and not have to look at a bunch of things I'm not interested in on the way.

                              • Twitch's new "Pulse" layout.

                                Sooooo let's get something straight:

                                I usually enjoy new and upcoming things, but I for one can't get behind this new "Pulse" idea. The old layouts were good.

                                I would suggest giving people the opportunity to either change it to their liking, or allowing us to decide whether or not we want this "Pulse" layout. Something as simple as changing the background color from white to anything else other than said color would already be better than the eyesore I am now staring at.

                                  The 'communities' system is not an appropriate way to categories creative streams. It is not appropriate (or ethical) to allow a streamer to manage/administer what has effectively become a category for creative streamers.

                                    Can you guys/girls make it so that when you stream on Consoles, that twitch adds an overlay over the stream? I wanna stream on my Xbox One but not getting any views, and the people who stream with overlays have tons because it grabs peoples attention for it! Can we make it customizable for this? Thanks for reading and please take this idea for consideration

                                    • Create "Dual sub" emotes

                                      Have Twitch Partners be able to officially partner with each other and create a set of emotes that viewers can only access if they sub to both channels. Each Partner still has their normal emote set of course, but if you sub to both channel A and channel B you also get a few "AB" exclusive emotes. Unsubbing from either loses you access to the dual sub emotes.

                                      Many pairs of Partners already have emotes of their own that combo well with each other, purposely. For example, two Partners have "wave" emotes that face each other to look like a…

                                      • Tweak the mobile app on iPad

                                        With the new update, if you are viewing on iPad in landscape mode, you have to go to a channel's stream, then their channel, then hit chat in order to see chat with the video playing. I want to be able to switch to the old viewing mode where I can swipe from the right side of the screen to bring up chat, since it was intuitive and very simple. Chat shows up in portrait mode but I hardly use my device like that anymore

                                          I was wondering if channel editors could access more of a channel's dashboard and settings. The broadcaster could allow access manually to different tabs on dashboard or channel settings to a specific editor through the editing tab. I noticed an issue whereas I can't even check the channel subscribers or edit the broadcaster's panels as an editor and having a lot of responsibility on the moderation of the channel, I need to see that info. Also maybe allow editors to manage channel moderators. (/unmod and /mod commands). Basically if a broadcaster trusts a person to allow her/him these rights, he…
