  1. There are some, a few, or maybe more than I think- who stream just for fun.
    I would appreciate a tag "non-affiliate" or even a category for people like me so we, non-affiliates have a chance to be found and viewers know they are also people who stream just for fun.

    I often feel like an alien when viewers come in and ask "Why no sub button?", "why no donations?", "Everybody likes money! Why the denial?" and they start to discuss about it when I explain it "It's just a hobby, I don't wanna feel I have to stream everyday…

  2. In Music and Live Performance you cannot add a tag with your specific musical instrument, nor can you search the Music and Live Performance area for a specific instrument that you’re interested in seeing performed. I’d love to see Twitch add tags for instruments like drum set, guitar, piano, violin, etc. This will help viewers narrow their searches as well as allow streamers to more easily find others playing the same instrument.

  3. Add a tag depicting the caster's proclivity towards photo-sensitive safe activity. IE; avoiding games/activities with frequent bright flashing lights such as strobes and/or flashbangs.

  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. Allow viewers to flag a stream's tag as misleading or incorrect, and remove it. For example, a lot of people use the 12 Hour Challenge tag to mean "I'm streaming for a long time today", when in fact the 12 Hour Challenge is a challenge I designed specifically for the purposes of learning a speedrun in 12 hours or less. It sucks when a tag designed for an event I created is used by your typical Valorant and League streamers to flood the results page with irrelevant content.

  6. I would love if we all could have to option to categorize those we follow into folders (we can name), or sub-divisions. So then the 300 + I follow or others do, can locate who they want a lot faster when going to raid/host/find.

  7. 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.

  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. I don't really know why it seems like every other race has a tag but Caucasians don't. So you should add it

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. 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…

  14. I'm an art streamer who carves realistic pumpkin portraiture all year long on foam and organic pumpkins. I also make a lot of other spooky themed art content. However, there are no useful tags that apply to my medium or the style of my work.

    The Vibe of the art that I'm creating would fit under a "Spooky", "Halloween" , or even "Dark Art" type of tag. There are a ton of folks on twitch that enjoy playing spooky games and many art/maker and crafting streamers whom could benefit from adding this or similar content description tags.

    Thanks for your…

  15. Turntablism is the art of manipulating sounds and creating new music, sound effects, mixes and other creative sounds and beats, typically by using two or more turntables and a cross fader-equipped DJ mixer.
    A turntablism tag would help Artists distinguish themselves from the generic term "DJ"

  16. Adding in more tags along the lines of "Cozy", "Relaxed", "Comfy", "Chill", "Low Energy".

    This will help people be able to find more streams which aren't always so hype all the time.

    This would also be a good addition for people who can't handle over stimulation.

  17. 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,…

  18. A lifetime subscription should be available for Affiliates to give to 1 bot account. This would prevent affiliates from having to pay for a Tier 3 sub for their own bot every month.

  19. The Mortal Kombat categories featured on twitch are inaccurate & should be fixed. It is one of the most iconic & recognized franchises in the video game industry & deserves accurate extensions on the platform.
    The original Mortal Kombat, which released in Oct 1992 doesn't even have it's own category. It's absent. I'm assuming so the 2011 remake could replace its spot. While categories such as the ever popular Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe: Silver Shield Combo Pack (a copy of the base game boxed with a bonus blu ray of the original live action film) & Mortal Kombat Mythologies:…

  20. After going through, the entire list, I'm sad to realise there isn't a dyspraxia tag. Up to 10% of the worldpopulation has a form of it. Please add this so people like me can find each other.
