  1. Support for games on Linux can be inconsistent, and it's really helpful to be able to see how well a game runs on the OS when making purchasing decisions. A way to easily find other people streaming on Linux would be a boon.

    Hey all!

    The Linux tag is now live on Twitch!

    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.

  3. There are a lot of us who are from healthcare background stream games to have some chill, relaxing time away from work. Some study stream with chill vibes to create an environment where we give each other company.

    We aspire to include everyone who is related to healthcare such as medical students, nurses, public health personnel, doctors, psychologists, physician assistants, physiotherapists, dietician, medical/paramedic technicians and so on.

    We need this tag so viewers can find us easily without having the hassle to search or get disappointed for not able to find one of us.

    Please add this tag so we…

    Hey all, 


    First off just want to give a huge thanks for the work healthcare workers do. <3


    From this feedback we have gone ahead and added a 'Healthcare' tag to Twitch. Let us know if there are any other tags you would like to see added to the site. 

  4. The newly added "autism" tag from Twitch differs majorly from other community tags. Instead of focusing on people from the community specifically (such as the Blind, d/Deaf, Disabled, and many other tags), the tag calls on a "broad" autism community. The tag as it currently is will very likely result in usage by family members, friends, allies, and professionals in the autism world and end up minimizing actually autistic voices. In order to full uplift autistic voices, please change this tag to "autistic" or at least add an additional autistic tag.

    Hey there!

    Just wanted to let you all know that we now have an autistic tag along with our already added autism tag.

    We really appreciate feedback like this and please let us know if there are any other tags you would like to see added to Twitch <3

  5. 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!

  6. Hey, since we've got so many of the other non-binary and trans identities in the recent update, can we get Agender as a tag as well?

  7. Hello all!

    I am a streamer from Puerto Rico and I love that the Puerto Rican tag is available along many other tags recently added to help us make connections, both as streamers and viewers of twitch.

    I was wondering if it was possible for you guys to consider including another tag that also heavily identifies Puerto Ricans around the world. If you guys could include the term BORICUA as part of the tag selection I could dare say it would have MORE usage than the current Puerto Rican tag, as the term BORICUA means the same, but with a…

    Hey y’all! Wanted to let everyone know that we now have a “Haskell” tag on Twitch!

    Thanks for the feedback and as always please let us know if there are any other tags you’d like to see!

  9. With over 350 new tags added, I was immensely disappointed to see the lack of a tag for the Jewish community. Jewishness is an ethnoreligion, not just a religion, and we deserve to be able to find each other just like any other community.

    Just wanted to check back in on this thread and let you guys know that we have gone ahead and added a jewish tag to Twitch.

    Thank you so much for your feedback on this and please let us know if there are any other tags you would like to see added to Twitch.

  10. Disabled gamers often face more or different hardships than abled streamers do. There are so many amazing users on Twitch who are disabled, and they deserve a "disabled" tag. Disabled streamers need a way to find each other and weave our communities together, and disabled viewers need a way to find streamers they want to watch and connect with.

    Hey All!

    We’re really excited to share that not only have we added a “Disabled” tag, but we have also added more than 350 other tags to Twitch. If you feel we missed anything pertinent, please let us know.

    For more information, you can take a look at our blog post at https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/05/26/celebrate-yourself-and-your-community-with-350-new-tags/. Please continue to share ideas and feedback you have to UserVoice!

  11. I stream "stationery" streams in the Makers & Crafting section. This includes things like showing how I write and decorate my journal, explain what makes a new fountain pen special, or set up my bullet journal for the new month. I'd love to see tags added for myself and others to make that content type stand out.

    These tags could include "Stationery," "Journaling," and "Planning." I know others in the community are interested in streaming stationery on Twitch, and I think this would help us build more of a community.

    Hey all! 


    Thanks so much for the feedback on adding these tags. I'm happy to share that we now have 'journaling', 'planning', and 'stationery' all as their own tags on Twitch now.

  12. recently, a large amount of tags were added to help identify the streamer, in my eyes a great idea for helping build communities of support. however, since most of these tags were put out suddenly in a large list, some of us feel like a very jarring tag was missed: Plural.
    Plurality is a complicated, varied concept, yet still a extremely important identifier for many of us. Currently, the only way for us to tag our plurality is with the "dissociative dissorder" tag, but this is not actually helpful, Dissociative dissorders are also complicated and varied, with many dissociative dissorders…

    Just wanted to post and let you all know that we now have a ‘plural’ tag live on Twitch.

  13. I believe a worldbuilding tag would be good for writers, tabletops players and creators of all kinds. There is currently no tag to find or promote that kind of stream. Looking forward to see it or have something similar! :D

    Hi everyone! Happy to share that the “Worldbuilding” tag is now live :D

    Thank you all for your feedback and please do let us know if you have other suggestions for tags!

  14. I think it's great that 'body positive' will now be one of the stream tags, but it would be helpful to also include 'plus size' as one of the stream tags. Body positivity can represent a wide range of body types, however this would most likely not highlight those that are on the higher end of the spectrum. Those that are a size 20+. It would also give greater visibility to a group that is often marginalized within society. Adding 'plus size' as one of the tags will take the 'body positive' tag one step further and help those who…

  15. "Flow Arts": As the current world condition has taken us from previous live festivals and performance, many Flow Artists and Dancers are turning to virtual and broadcasted live performances of their talents. Traditionally, we as dancers, hula-hoop performers, jugglers, poi spinners and other similar disciplines, have had to gravitate towards the "Music & Performance Art" category. (With no specific tag identifying us as with Flow Artists, nor dancers). Now that Twitch has adjusted back to "Music" as the original category, we have migrated to "just chatting"; it doesn't really identify our community at all, among others that actually do feature…

  17. Recently there has been a change from ethnicity based tags to country based tags (ex. Puerto Rican became Puerto Rico, Cuban became Cuba, Filipino became Philippines). Dominicans have been completely erased as there was not even a tag for the Dominican Republic added, just Dominica, and they are not the same country.

    This leaves many of us who identify with a certain ethnicity but do not actually live in that country in a weird spot. We should be able to proudly show our ethnicity regardless of where we live. I think that both tags are useful so I would keep…

    Thanks so much for sharing this feedback. We took a look at our tags list and understood where you’re coming from. While we originally made this change to better differentiate from our language tags, the change to country names wasn’t clear. We’re sorry for any frustration this change has caused.

    Thanks to your feedback, we’ve reinstated tags including Filipino, Cuban, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rican. If there are other tags you would like to see, please submit them individually in a new post. We appreciate all the feedback you and others have shared to help us improve the Tags experience!

  18. The Quadstick is a joystick designed for people that are handicapped and have very limited or no use of their hands to play video games. With the Quadstick a person uses a joystick and sip/puff buttons with their mouth to play video games. It would be great to add this tag so people streaming using the Quadstick can show other handicapped people their videos using the Quadstick to play video games. Thank you!

    Hello everyone! Thank you for bringing this feedback to us.

    I've discussed this with the appropriate teams here at Twitch and they've let me know that you should now be able to use this as a tag! Learn more about using tags here.

    Again, thank you for giving us your valuable feedback and making Twitch the best place to stream!

  20. A veteran tag would allow the various veteran streaming communities to find each other, and assist each other better. Many veterans stream to help others fighting PTSD, trauma, and veteran suicide.
