  1. The Twitch community would benefit if there was an “Animals & Farming” category. There are currently over 200 animal based streamers on the platform, spread out over many different categories, making it difficult to find them. Animal streams attract a specific type of viewer, usually looking for a slower paced stream, where they can relax and make long-term connections with other viewers. It would be much easier to find this type of content with a new “Animals & Farming '' category, helping the community grow and support each other.

    Furthermore, animal based Twitch streamers provide content to many thousands of…

    Excited to share we launched an Animals, Aquariums, and Zoos category! All of your Very Good fluffy, feathery, or fin-covered friends, all in one otterly adorable place. Thank you so much for this feedback and if there are other categories you think are missing from the site please let us know!

    You can find out more information about the category and Animal Week on Twitch here: https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/11/01/animal-week-is-very-good-yes-it-is

  2. Creative and IRL used to be categories on Twitch. Everything that wasn't games was in Creative. This means everything from Bob Ross to ASMR (let's be real that's the same thing.) was all in one place and entirely unsearchable.|

    Twitch broke up Creative and IRL into a bunch of new and rad categories to help discoverability. This included Music, Art, Beauty, Food, Just Chatting, Tabletops, ASMR, Science & Technology, and others. This category splitting really helped a lot of smaller communities grow. It was easier to find new and interesting streamers because you could now discover them in an otherwise…

    Hey guys!

    Just following up to let you know that this has been resolved!

    We are back to one category for Age of Empires II!

    Thank you for the continued feedback on this.

  4. With a recent update, Twitch merged all remakes of games in the directory with its original game for whatever reason. Now remakes of popular franchises such as Legend of Zelda, Resident Evil, etc. are all fighting over visibility in the same directory. This is also a problem for remakes of games that have completely different names from its original game, such as Kirby Nightmare in Dream Land, the remake of Kirby's Adventure for NES released on GBA, who's directory is now completely gone because ????

    I don't understand what the point of this change is. There was absolutely nothing wrong…

    Update: we are now able to support a handful of new game types from IGDB, including remakes, remasters, expanded games, and forks – all new game types that have been introduced on IGDB (see the updated documentation at https://github.com/twitchtv/igdb-contribution-guidelines/wiki/Type)

    This means that we can now restore nearly all of the titles that have been reported missing in this suggestion, and we are working to do so!

    Thank you for your feedback and patience! We will close this suggestion for now, but please feel free to open new suggestions if there are additional games that you find are missing!

  5. The Touhou Category got removed or renamed, removing it would be very detrimental to the community on twitch.

  6. Every time I am trying to find a programming or game development stream to watch (which is a very specific type of stream) I get lost in all the growing plants and raising chickens 24/7 streams. While on the other hand there are a lot of programming and or game development streams that really deserve their own category. Being a part of the live-coders community I feel that splitting science & technology in a more granular way would benefit everybody. Both in terms of search-ability and clarity.

  7. The Super Monkey Ball category was removed from Twitch after the platform's switch from Giant Bomb to IGDB. As IGDB classes it as a sub game of the original Monkey Ball (and the Admins being unwilling to change this) Super Monkey Ball has been removed from the Twitch game directory. As a result, streamers playing the previously popular game are now using categories with far less visibility (Monkey Ball/Games + Demos) or flat out wrong categories (such as Super Monkey Ball 2). All VODs previously streamed under the defunct category have been moved to Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz or…

  8. Since the release of Warcraft3 - Reforged earlier this year, Reign of Chaos is no longer a standalone game. It's all merge in Warcraft3 Reforged.

    Would be great to have it changed

  9. Please merge the Pokemon games back together. There should be no reason why the games should be even MORE fragmented than they already are. (Ex: Sword, Shield, and Sword/Shield Dual Pack are all separate categories. Why?) This completely destroys discoverability for the community. Things like this just make users lose faith in Twitch when they preach working on discoverability & search functionality for it's users.

    Or even better, create one franchise category for Pokemon (and other franchises) like others have suggested here.

    Sorry for all the confusion with this. We’ve recombined and restored Pokémon titles by generation. There may continue to be a handful of strange bundles in the system (example: Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Double Pack), however we will be removing those as well. Thanks for your patience!

  10. Please re-instate Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate as separate game categories.

    These are three distinct games on completely different platforms with different mechanics, stories, and levels/bosses you fight.

    There's no category that streamers of these games can fit into with them gone ! Please give us back our Monster Hunter games!

  11. Currently the game category Auto Chess is featuring two completely different games (Dota Auto Chess and Auto Chess). It's confusing for new players and hurting each games ability to grow a following. Dota Auto Chess is a mod of Dota and has no cross play/relation to Auto Chess other than name and developers. Auto Chess is completely separate standalone game that deserves its own category.

  12. I'm aware others have made similar suggestions for an 18+ category or whatev to displace sxy, but not sexually suggestive (unless you view the female body as sxual by nature, which is an entire can of worms in and of itself), hot tub streamers. However, I don't think that actually applies to women who are just sxy, sitting on a banana, as an 18+ category since they do not realistically meet the criteria of prn, or even softcore prn. That is, of course, ignoring the delusional people who exaggerate, equating the front page of Just Chatting to Chaturbate. Anyone who…

    Hey All!

    Just wanted to reach out and let you all know that we do now have a new category called Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches. As with all content on Twitch, creators must abide by our Nudity & Attire policy. Please consult that policy for details on what is and isn’t permissible.

    We know you might have more questions or concerns on this but I am going to close out this thread and link our blog post which has a lot more information: https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/05/21/lets-talk-about-hot-tub-streams/

    Feel free to share your thoughts with us on UserVoice if you have any further questions or feedback for us on this!

  13. Command & Conquer : Remastered Collection was removed from the list of games to use as your stream category and it should be added back ASAP!

  14. The newest expansion of Spellforce 3 just came out, and now there are 3 categories! People are using both the base game category and the new category to stream the new content, which is confusing and bad for streamer discoverability.

    These 3 categories should be merged, particularly seeing as the game has crossplay capabilities between the different expansions in multiplayer.

    The category links are as follows: https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/SpellForce%203
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/SpellForce%203%3A%20Soul%20Harvest

  15. The following titles are the original and ports/expansions of the same game:
    * Phantasy Star Online
    * Phantasy Star Online ver. 2 (expansion--note this is different than Phantasy Star Online 2 which is a different game and should be separate)
    * Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II (port + expansion)
    * Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II Plus (essentially just a patch!)
    * Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst (port + expansion)

    I and a few other PSO streamers realized how many fellow streamers of this game we were never aware of because there are streams in each of…

  17. Someone removed the "Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike" from the categories when creating a new stream. It still comes up as a result in the main search bar, so I can find old or current live broadcasts using it.

    It looks like it was replaced with "Street Fighter III: Double Impact", which is not even a game that exists.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    We actually addressed this last year by merging the various Age of Empires III categories, but forgot to close this out.

  19. The category is removed. If you're going to remove versions of Street FIghter 4, Remove Street Fghter IV, Super Street Fighter IV, and KEEP Ultra Street Fighter IV. as it is the active, and most current version of the game, that also allows you to play previous versions of characters within it. Thanks!

  20. I believe that we need a Jackbox Category for all games owned by the Company Jackbox Games. Because if streamers are changing games - It can be a right pain to change the category every single change. If we had only one Category for Jackbox it would make life so much easier.
