  1. Before the latest change, you had a very neat display of all available channels in the category.

    after the change, you only have a tiny bit of the screen to actually browse - overshadowed by a giant preview that can't be removed.
    this makes finding the stream you want so much harder, to the point of dejecting users from even trying.

    an ability to simply collapse the preview would solve this without interfering with the change itself - although personally I think it's just not needed at all

    EDIT: looks like you even made an "expand" button, but that does…

  2. browsing filters should allow options to browse from less view channels to higher view channels. Scrolling multiple pages to reach the bottom of the viewership is time consuming & less advantage for new content creators.

  3. The browsing itself is great, I like that we can browse separate subcategories (for example in Gaming) like Shooter, Action & Adventure, Role Playing etc but it would be great if the shown streams weren't all the highest viewer counts. Yeah it increases the discoverability but only if you're in the top 5-10.

    Maybe there is a way to display random streams from that category/subcategory? A mix of different channels would be great so streamers with lower view counts don't disappear. Especially because expanding the subcategory only gives you a few more streams, not all of them. Normally we can…

  6. Add a new filter or search function beyond the custom tag which allows the user to find streamers under X viewer count.

    Example:

    Under 100 Viewers
    Under 50 Viewers
    Under 1000 Viewers
    Under 10 Viewers

    Amounts can be decided by Twitch, but I figure the key numbers like 10, 100, or even 75 for those pushing for partner can be highlighted and that filter can be placed on top of the category filter.

    Example:

    Apex Legends -> Under 75 Viewers -> [Insert other tags]

    I've been enjoying finding other smaller streamers to watch on occasion and the stream interaction is…

  7. I would like to be able to view streams with low or no viewers. Currently I do not know of a way to find a stream to view based on the game they are playing and then the number of current viewers. It seems like the only ones I find have hundreds or thousands of viewers. I find it hard to believe there aren’t people streaming that have no or few viewers

  8. Why aren't favorite categories displayed?
    For example: If you have marked software & development as a favorite, it will be replaced by other uninteresting categories, because Twitch thinks that they are more interesting due to the number of users. Why am I not shown my own choice in Categories, each time searching takes a long time...

  9. In my opinion, gameplay is so much more interesting to watch when the streamer has a webcam. Their reactions are what make me want to tune into their stream. Of course it's fine if people don't want to use a webcam, but I'd like to be able to filter by those that do.

  10. When you browse through a category on twitch, it first gives you a list of streams in your selected language and then simply a list of all active streams in the category, sorted by viewers.
    However, as of recently, this is no longer working correctly and it instead just gives you two lists of all streams all the while still claiming to be filtering for your language.

    I was going to make a proper ticket for the bug report, but quite frankly, the ticked system is a hot mess and there is no option to report bugs pertaining to filter…

  11. Place Browse results into page breaks. Currently, when scrolling streams under the Browse section, after scrolling a while, the page starts to become super laggy until it becomes impossible to scroll anymore. Apparently the content is filling up memory or something. The results should be shown on pages that each have a customizable set limit of results on each one so that this doesn't happen, with a Next Page and Previous Page button at the bottom. Why this hasn't already been done, I have no idea.

  12. It's cute (Pathetic) how you have a 'feedback' section that slowly turns into a 'we only want to really harvest your free ideas and we don't really care about your complaints' section.

    You add previews to browsing and give us no control over whether we want it, or not. Give us control to disable that **** or I end giving Twitch any money when it renews. What is wrong with you? smh

  13. It would be nice if I could search for someone to watch based on if they're affiliate or not.
    I've been trying to browse for new streamers to watch and I cant seem to find anyone pre-affiliate. I understand we also want to promote new affiliates, but it would also be nice if we could easily find pre-affiliates as well.

  14. Users should have the ability to set a global filter for what languages they want their recommended streams to be in. It's annoying to have to set a filter just to get streams in a language I understand every time. There should also be the ability to set multiple languages as many people speak multiple languages.

  17. Twitch just like google is a recognized universal language for games and pushing into other fields outside gaming; but primarly gaming. In the early stages of twitch 'games' was used (this isn't that important) but later moved onto using category. It is twitchs' underlining code that games should in place of category, just like how google is not godgle, or goggle, or guugle. Please revsrse the process as this is important in twitchs' eco-system, thank you.

  19. There are many good posts in this section that try to address the issues with highlighting relevant content for viewers and support discovery of channels where viewers will be engaged in a way that leads them to support the content creator and platform. The problem is that Twitch has become increasingly solely depended on a cornerstone of viewer count which provides little to no value and detracts from the actual value and outcomes of engagement on the platform.

    Channels are often avoided or attended because the primary metric is focused on viewer count. This is basic psychology at work and…

  20. So we all know that for discoverability, Twitch tracks who follows who, and who they also watch. Example: You follow Streamer X, and also follow/watch Streamer Y, and so does Z% of the community, they get recommended.

    I'd like to see a category that dials that one more step down:
    You Follow Streamer X
    Other Community Member Follows Streamer X
    Other Member Streams
    I can go to "Streamers in your Communities" category to see streamers who share a community with me, that I would never otherwise know about since self promotion is frowned upon.

    I know when I browse a…
