  1. Having just had our previous campaign closed, stating that this is now solved by CUSTOM TAGS, this is absolutely not the case.

    Twitch has always had music tags such as: Trance, House, Techno, Dubstep and others which sit directly underneath the Main Music Category.

    Drum & Bass is equally as large a community on Twitch as any of those categories, and instead of enabling us to unify through a central music category, you state that Custom Tags is enough. It is not. It spreads our community out through all the general misspellings; eg. DNB, Drumandbass, Drumnbass, Jungle, Liquid, Neurofunk, Ragga,…

  2. Bring back the ability to use regular tags. The custom tags are nice, but there is currently no option to use the tags we had access to before unless entering manually. The requirements for these custom tags (ie, no spaces) precludes some tags like 'body positive' or 'mental health'. Having the ability to choose from the multitude of tags that were recently introduced, as well as define user tags, just makes sense if you want to truly promote individuality. Using ONLY custom tags means that some people will be using tags no one else is, and therefore their streams will…

  3. With the increase in available tags, it would be wonderful to be able to pick more than 5 tags.

    Could we get an increase in the amount of possible tags, so we don't have to struggle over which tags we want to go with? Like say, 10?

  4. Allow streamers to set their identity tags & accessibility tags (captions etc) and forget about them without them resetting after the time period.

    These can then not count towards the 5 tag limit which can be used to describe the content of the stream. Identity rarely changes, so allow them to be toggleable by the streamer. Most people who will use these tags will want to be able to show off their entire identity as well as their other content tags so this would be a great way to do that! It also allows streamers to show off their accessibility…

  5. Please give us the option to have a space in formatting for custom tags, so they don't all appear as one word. As someone who is visually impaired, this is very difficult to read when multi word tags are not spaced out.

    ie.
    CustomTags vs "Custom Tags"

  6. Already at launch we are seeing how the new 350+ identity tags can fracture communities. Streamers who used to be able to be found using the "LGBTQIA+" tag are opting to use the more specific tags within that spectrum making it harder to find them if you don't know which specific tag to look for.

    If a user applies a tag like "trans", "********", "gay", etc their stream should automatically have the "LGBTQIA+" tag applied to it. This change would allow streamers to represent their content through their identity while maintaining the strength of a larger community and increase discoverability…

  7. With the new tag system, streamers can have up to 10 tags and can write custom tags, while the old system only allowed for 5 tags picked from a list. This a huge improvement, however this change also brought a lot of downgrades that overall makes the system less useful for streamers and viewers.

    With the old system, a new streamer or viewer can type keywords and Twitch shows suggestions from the list of preset tags. For streamers, this helps them discover what they could do to make their stream stand out and know what viewers may search for. For…

  8. Lately there have been too many streamers misrepresenting their content with incorrect tags, using them only because the tags are popular and bring them more attention. These are streamers who ALREADY hold 99% of the viewership on Twitch, and they don't need to be stealing it from communities where they don't belong. This is unacceptable and I believe there need to be penalties for such actions.

    Since Twitch refuses to suspend/ban their cash cows though, I propose an alternative solution. Implement a way to gatekeep them from using the tags. If they've been reported and investigated for tag misrepresentation and…

  9. 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…

  10. Custom tags are nice but it's really bad for discovery if I type lgbt in the search bar and find no tags unless the tag is exactly "lgbt", same with literally any other text string, like "they" could return "TheyThem" but also "SheThey", "Playthrough" could return "FirstPlaythrough", "ChallengePlaythrough", "CasualPlaythrough"

  11. It's no longer possible to search streams with "platformer", you can search the game categories and then look at all the streams within that category, but you can't look at all the streams of all the "platformer" categories. Same for any genre, this is very very bad for discovery and actually a severe step backwards, I would argue more backwards than custom tags bring us forwards

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. Overwatch 2 has started and the old Overwatch tags have disappeared from Twitch, so I can't search for past Overwatch clips in the clip manager.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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。
