  1. It's really annoying when I try to add tags that obviously would fit to the game but twitch has predetermined ones for each game.

    Even if you try to add an "open world" tag to a pretty obvious open world game twitch doesn't accept it. Instead the "Done" button transforms into a greyed out "Updating..." button and the window doesn't close.

    Why can I even add these tags if twitch refuses to use the anyway?

    Either the tags should be in the list at all depending on what game you choose or at least a warning message should pop up…

  2. I'm trying to find more streamers to connect with that are English speaking, and as I know, when you go into [Edit Stream Info] as an Affiliate, it allows you to select your [Stream Language].

    But, as an example, if I'm searching for new streamers on Just Chatting, I find that a lot of the English speaking streamers don't have the English tag. I'm wondering if this is a bug? I often use the English tag to narrow down the amount of people I see in each category, but if i'm missing people, then it reduces their visibility.

    Maybe because…

  3. The removal of the previously pre-set list of tags to choose from was definitely not the way to go.

    Having custom tags is great for a number of reasons such as having a niche/indie stream, but removing the preceding list and the ability to easily choose pre-determined tags only makes things unnecessarily inconvenient for people who were perfectly fine with the tags that were available before.

    Now it adds just that much more time to setting up a stream by having to write every tag in its entirety. It also affects streamers who do things like speedruns because now they…

  4. Make it so you can “tag” things like other people. So you can do “Playing with @mmattbtw” and the part that says “@mmattbtw” is a hyperlink that goes to said channel.

  5. The ability to set tags for a channel, or community, which are permanent until manually changed, and separate from the tags for a stream. With the new influx of tags for identity or community description, it's difficult for people to describe both their community, and their content. Additionally, the community tags would be something that would be the same for EVERY stream for most people, and would give viewers an idea of what a channel is about, even when they are offline, thereby helping people find communities that they can relate to and make it easier on streamers who want…

  6. First, the custom tags are going to and have been making discoverability worse. With no presets people are just spread out over several variations of the same thing. It's more confusing now. For example the variations: LGBT, LGBTQ, LGBTQIA, LGBTQIAPLUS (Because for some reason we can't put +). I think most of us would have just been happy with the extra 5 tags.
    Next, the drops tag should still be automatic. I don't know if this is a bug or how they meant to have it now. But the drops tag has not been applied to eligible streams during the…

  7. It would be great if the search tags option had the "old" tags that have been updated for the new system still there and searchable via autocomplete. As it stands, there are no searchable tags by autocomplete (i.e. you have to input any tags manually to search for them). Also, the ability to use wildcards or the ability for the search to be inclusive of letters after what you've searched for would be great. As an odd example, if you searched for the "app" tag, the "apple" tag would also pop up.

  8. A feature that lets u save tag clusters. For example, i play 3 different games and stream and i have to manually write all the tags that are relevant but if i change game then i have to do the whole process all over again but if i could save those specific tags as 'Tags save #1' or 'tags for so-and-so game', it would lessen time in preparing monumentally.

  10. Trying to decide which variation on a tag to use can be guesswork in the current system. When entering a tag, the function should show similar tags in use and indicate in some way which tags are popularly used and/or searched, such as number of live streams with the tag. Platforms such as Twitter have a similar feature when entering a hashtag.

  12. 自国の言語の配信はストリーマー/チャット共、キャラやゲームを侮辱しているのが分かり(それが原因で精神的な病に掛かった)外国の配信しか見なくなったが、タグが翻訳されなくなって少し不便になってしまいました。言語のタグだけでも翻訳させてほしいです。

  15. Creating this since the first request for an option like this was created 2015 and didn't changed anything yet.

    Before the individual tag update rolled out, you could at least search for predefined language tags. Now since streamer can write their own tags, it doesn't work at all. Many streamers doesn't add custom tags or even the language as a tag.

    How about just add the selected stream language from the streamer dashboard and add it as a mandatory tag? Streamers could still add secondary languages by tagging them.

  16. The tag search currently allows only one tag at a time, which shouldn't be.
    For example: I want to search channels with the tags "Action" and "RPG", however the tag search doesn't add those tags up. I can either search for "Action" or "RPG", not both at the same time.
    My suggestion is simple and self explanatory: multiple tag search.

  17. Currently, there is no way to use the Helix API to inspect the custom tags of a given stream. Previously, with the preset tag list, the Get-Streams endpoint (https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/api/reference#get-streams) would include an array of tag_ids, which could then be inspected to filter streams automatically. This is still included in responses, and still contains the language tag, but doesn't include any information on custom tags.

    This is an issue because bots which previously relied upon the pre-set tag list to filter streams can no longer use tag information at all, because they cannot see custom tags in any way.

  18. The tag would allow people to find trans people who have medically transitioned (or are in the process of doing so) and share a similar experience in their journeys.

    The current "transgender" tag alone doesn't meet this need due to the broadness of the term. Additionally, there are other identities that could fit under "transgender", such as genderqueer and genderfluid, but they have their own tags. There are also other medical-specific tags, such as intersex, blind, Tourette syndrome, paraplegic, and so on.

    Transsexual is a medically accurate term that refers to transgender people who have undergone (or are undergoing) medical…

  19. Before tags management changes into last update when I was selecting stream language it was adding specific language tag. Now this not working, it don't add any tag. I have try this with chrome, edge, firefox, opera gtx, android mobile in more than one pc and other streamers too but the preoblem persist.

    It's a important problem to identify stream launguage with same word .

    Please, it's important solve this.

    Thank you

  20. In the new twitch tag interface it won't let me put "BackseatingAllowed", which used to be one of the standard tags. The content moderation on tag names is WAY too aggressive!
