  1. Add the ability to add specific streamers to a "favorites" list that will appear at the top of your followed channels. You would be able to have 5-10 "favorite" streamers and since they're all at the top of your followed channels list, you'll easily be able to see if they are live.

  2. With more people staying at home learning, and even for myself as I start school in August, I thought it would be kind of nice to have a category like "study buddies" where you could watch people study.

    I think it would be great for streamers who want to talk out their subjects to an audience/see if their ideas make sense, or help them remember things.

    This also gives the viewers ways to possibly improve their studying techniques and in turn learn more about the subject.

    Or, if the person likes a quiet environment a viewer could be there just…

  3. I like the left side menu bar in the new UI. The only thing is that I always have to click "Load More" two or three times to see everyone who is online. I wish it would display everyone automatically.

  4. I would like a Cyber Security Category. There is a large community of CyberSec streamers and even more followers. Currently there are only 3 categories we can stream under:

    TryHackMe
    Hack The Box
    Science and Tech

    TryHackMe and HackTheBox are usually never used as although we do stream content from both websites we will often swap platforms or stream other platforms/things in between.

    Science and Tech is the closest category we have however CyberSec Streamers usually get lost among all the other streamers and it can be hard to differentiate between the CyberSec Streams and Programming Streams as they may…

  5. Unfortunately I was chosen to test the new follow list sorting. To me it really doesn't feel good the way it is right now. Often it just doesn't feel natural when trying to find a specific streamer. But I could see other people benifiting from this feature if it is implemented correctly.

    The algorithm should also consider if the game that is being played by the streamer is something I would enjoy or not. For example if I really love watching XQC, but I hate watching World of Warcraft, XQC shouldn't get the #1 spot in my follower list. So…

  6. Condense all versions of RPG Maker (MV, XP, VX etc.) into just 'RPG Maker'. This will mean that RPG Maker streamers get more traction & exposure if everyone points to one singular, all-encompassing category.

    If that's not possible, even just an 'RPG Maker' tag would be enough, so that people can just stream into Science & Technology with that tag attached.

  7. Summed up, for the new directory buttons that are being experimented with to supposedly help adding discoverability to the platform, could there be a fifth button that exclusively shows streamers who has been streaming consistently for atleast six months, but average less than 10/15 viewers?

  8. Categories as they are are a bother to search through. Looking for Pokémon games? Well, look through all these people that have "pokémon" in their names, then all over these streams that might not be for Pokémon!

    Categories nesting with Sub-Categories could change this altogether. Let's say we would want to look for Pokémon games. We'd type "Pokémon", head into the "Pokémon" category and look at all the streamers doing different games. If we want some more precision into the category, different sub-categories like "Mystery Dungeon" or "Main Titles" could work, so on and so forth until you reach the…

  9. There should be a “recently watched” section, which shows channels that you have recently watched. It would make sense to have this because people are more likely to return to a stream that they have recently watched regardless of being a follower.

  10. Art being under irl is an awful and detrimental decision that will only drive artists away from your platform. Artists help your community (emotes, layouts etc) don't hide them under IRL. A good portion of your viewers go into irl solely to troll and artists already struggle to gain a solid audience on your platform. Several artists have already left twitch for YouTube, putting art/creative under IRL is just opened the door and encouraging them to leave. Give creative it's own category, put music under it (it is art after all), problem solved. People wouldn't have to visit a help…

  11. I saw it was marked as "Completed" that the pokemon directories were fixed but they really are not.
    Can you please merge Red/Blue/Yellow, Gold/Silver/Crystal, Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, Diamond,Pearl, Platinum:
    Some are still completely on their own and are even missing the cover images from the recent changes. (Look at Let's Go Pikachu for reference)

  12. Hello, there are an increasing number of video artists using twitch, but no good category to bring them together. Some use 'Art' but tend to get lost in the sea of traditional artists (painters, drawers etc). Some use 'Music' since their video art is often accompanied by music, but again the focus of that category isn't really right for what they're doing.

    Most of the video artists I'm aware of are either generating artistic moving video patterns from scratch (like '70s-style psychadelic music videos, but moving far beyond that with modern technologies) or curating, reshaping and modifying pre-existing video (glitch,…

  14. When looking for people to raid, it's hard to tell who uses exclusive chats like Sub-only or Follower-only. I think this could easily be fixed by adding a little icon or label that marks ALL streams that are follower-only, sub-only, or open to everyone when browsing for streams.

  15. So i got banned from a channel recently (Oops) and i keep getting this person in my recommended. It would be nice if people don't get streamers that they are banned from in their recommendations

  16. Please, PLEASE add a separate section for WoW Classic rather than just combining what used to be the WoW Bfa section with Classic. Since Classic launched, the WoW streaming section has become absolutely INFESTED with pretty much just Classic streams and I'd like to be able to find Bfa streams when I want to watch them instead of having to go digging through the entire section for them like I'm digging through the racks at TJ Maxx for a good outfit.

  17. Afterbirth is an expansion of Rebirth and is on Twitch but Afterbirth+ which is an expansion of Afterbirth isn't on it. Plus, the game is in IGDB. And there will be Repentance (which is an expansion of Afterbirth+) at the end of March. It will be weird to have every expansions on Twitch but not Afterbirth+

  18. Shiny hunting is a huge part of the Pokémon community here on Twitch and has been for many years. In the past it was easy enough to type 'shiny hunting' into the main search bar and a list of relevant streams would pop up. However, With the current Twitch algorithm and layout changes it has now become very difficult to find live streams dedicated to shiny hunting specifically. This is particularly true in older game/generation categories as Shiny hunting streams get lost amongst Nuzlocks and lets plays etc. The only medium to tell if a channel is streaming shiny hunting…

  19. This would be every month have new creators highlighted in those sections. This would be a great way to promote twitch ambassadors more as well as creators that are really just making great content regardless of their small size. Right now its incredibly difficult to get any exposure on twitch and i think this would be great right now.

  20. More games have options to use mouse & keyboard or controller. And some games mix PC players with Consoles players it's easier to find and filtering streamers
