Add Animation as a game
I, alongside many other streamers broadcasting animation, noticed recent changes in Twitch — "Creative" was replaced with more specific terms in the creative industry, like Art, Culinary, etc...
Missing from this selection was "Animation", which many streamers, as myself, think differently from an Art as a "game", and it would be greatly appreciated, for both me and for other fellow animators, to have that as an option separate from "Art".
Also considering that Twitch's 2017 Animation Contest was held, it would make sense to have a game dedicated to all the animators that also stream on the platform.

Twitch provides the Animation tag. Which can be paired to the Art category and achieve the separation you are looking for.
Well, animation is definitely an "Art", which is just a hair more specific than "Creative"; there are many other kinds of arts from Drawing, Painting, and Pottery, to Dance, Theatre, and Mimery. There are MANY kinds of art. And none of those different arts have their own separate overall "Category", and it seems it would not make any sense logically for Animation alone to be split off from Art, either.
Animation is in fact... well known as a Visual Art.
Streams can be tagged "Animation" as one of the tags in the dashboard --- Animation is a proper tag that things can be searched by; just like any of the other kinds of Art.
That would also be very cool under the respect that lots of people also make forms of fan fiction with game files. An example is http://wowmodelviewer.net/ where people make art about the game they play, [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lP3WafRCb4&feature=youtu.be].
Also there is a big market for Blender animations and etc from a very wide market. A huge amount of minecraft, warcraft and etc fan fiction is made in animation over the years. Would be very cool.
There is a large market for music video animators for warcraft who I think already stream to twitch occasionally when working [https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwUwkjI4zCTbW2eL2YEEa_b1izz6ext9M&disable_polymer=true].

Hyun dojo is probably the best animation community I have seen in my life I like the one minute melee and other animations and it would be great if they were a game
I am here to represent PizzaBeat, a group of animators. we all endorse this and are behind the idea of adding animation as a game to twitch.
