  1. Add "Mood" tags for streams such as Chilled, Hyped, Cosy, Chatty so people can search for the kind of vibe they are looking for, and also streamers can let people know the vibe of their stream.

    This will help people find streams and viewers that are more suited to them and what they are after :)

    Hey all!

    Just popping in to let you guys know that we now have Chilled, Hyped, Cozy and Chatty available as tags on Twitch!

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

  2. As we all know having safe spaces for queer people is really important and currently there is no tag for this on Twitch. This has meant that a lot of people have been using the LGBTQIA+ tag to represent a safe zone. There has been controversy in cis straight people using this tag and adding a tag for Allies would easily remedy this issue.

  3. resin - I've found a lot of resin artists, including myself, doing this more on stream. Alas, there is no tag to share with everyone - that we're doing it.

    Hey all!

    Excited to share that we now have a Resin tag live on 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!

  4. Hey everyone! I started a couple weeks ago my embroidery work. But sadly there is no Embroidery-Tag. I found tags like Crochet oder Knitting. Even Cross Stitch is listed. But Embroidery is missing. And I talked to some embroidery artist who are streaming on Twitch too. They miss the Embroidery-Tag too.
    Furthermore I had some people in my stream who told me, that they started doing embroidery work and were looking for inspiration and advises on twitch. An Embroidery Tag would help them really out, to find what they are looking for.
    Thank you very much in advance for a…

    Hey all!

    Super excited to share that we now have an Embroidery tag on Twitch! As someone who has recently gotten into embroidery I’m really excited to find streams with this tag! You can use it on your own stream or filter by the tag here: https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all/tags/f7f1750d-4410-4b95-bb11-60ec5d3765f2

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

  5. It is hard enough finding trans representation in our daily lives. With the LGBTQIA+ tag, one still needs to browse through channels and spend time in them to find trans streamers. A "trans" tag would help people searching for these communities.

    Today we are rolling out 350+ tags, including the transgender tag, to provide you with more options on how you express yourself and your content, so that you can more easily connect with one another and build wonderful communities. We are really appreciative for all of the feedback around this topic (and other related suggestions).

    We previously told you that we had a better solution to this request than adding the tag, and we were wrong. This has been one of the most popular requests we’ve heard, and the simple truth is that we should have done this sooner. In an effort to think carefully about how to best address this, we only made the situation more difficult. Again, thank you for helping us throughout this process in reevaluating our stance.

    Please continue to share ideas and feedback you have to UserVoice, as well as any suggestions for additional tags…

    Hey there!

    Just wanted to reach out because we do now have a Multiracial tag on Twitch!

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

  7. We need a "safe space" tag, so that LGBTQ+ viewers can find LGBTQ+-friendly channels, without allies having to use the LGBTQIA+ tag, which jumbles everyone together. Without this tag, allies don't have a clean way to signal their inclusivity.

  9. 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…

  10. 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

  11. Twitch on January 12th merged the categories for Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels and Super Mario Bros. 2.

    These are completely separate games with completely separate gameplay, streamers, and audiences. The merging seems to be done by mistake as they both share similarities in their naming variants, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels often called Super Mario Bros. 2 (Japan) as it was the original sequel released in Japan only.

    On IGDB, both Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels and Super Mario Bros. 2 have separate categories, so this seems to have been done via manual intervention on Twitch…

    Thank you for your feedback!

    We actually addressed this by bringing back both categories back in January, but forgot to close this out.

  12. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. The only current tag that specifically refers to Indigenous people within Canada's borders is First Nations, which specifically excludes Inuit (akin to Alaska Native which is a tag) and the Métis Nation. Please consult with members of the groups mentioned.

    Hey all!

    Thank you so much for this feedback!

    We have gone ahead and added a Metis and Inuit tag to Twitch. Please let us know if there are any other tags you would like to see added to the site.

  15. I don't think there needs to be a White tag, but it would be really cool to support Black, Indigenous, Asian, etc. (POC) streamers easier by finding them faster with ethnic tags. It might also help POC feel more seen by having more access to their content and representation of their content. Sometimes when raiding people, it's hard to find a certain demographic without tags. I understand this could create echo chambers, but perhaps it could also do the opposite by encouraging viewers to check out these tags. It also boosts POC streamers' visibility for others searching for them.

  16. The LGBTQIA+ tag is not being used correctly and needs addressing. That tag should be exclusively used by the queer community. Anyone else i.e. an ally should have a tag that is called Safe Space to show support and that it is a good place for the community without prejudiced. There's too many none queer users that use the tag in order to profit off the community. This needs addressing and time after time Twitch fails to support. Either fix it or admit it. Choice is yours.

    Hey there,

    Thank you so much for this feedback. Feedback like this helped us look at what tags we added to Twitch. We do want Twitch to be safe for everyone, fostering communities to be able to connect and show support for one another. How users identify themselves, and where they choose to share that information, is a personal decision. Twitch will not regulate a user’s identity or make decisions about whether or not a user truly identities with a certain demographic.

    Thanks to community feedback, we now have Unity, Ally, Safe Space and a plethora of LGBTQIA+ tags (https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all/tags) to start the conversation of helping communities feel safe and seen on Twitch. If there are other tags you would like to see added to Twitch, please let us know and we can work on adding them.

  17. 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.

  18. With the growing software developer communities on Twitch, we would like to add some tags to help with discoverability. Please consider the following tags:

    • Desktop Development
    • Programming Language: C#
    • Programming Language: C++
    • Programming Language: F#
    • Programming Language: Java
    • Programming Language: JavaScript
    • Programming Language: Python
    • Programming Language: Rust
    • Programming Language: PHP
    • Unity

    There may be more that we should consider, but this is a start. I'll defer to commenters for more tag ideas.

  19. Good day. There is barely any exposure for the psychic community on Twitch. People think there is 1 psychic/intuitive/spiritual person only on this platform.

    For example, Tarot has 16k followers in the 7? years it has existed.
    Hot tubs and pools got over 50k followers in ONE DAY.

    We need people who are looking for their tribe in a spiritual (NOT RELIGIOUS) way, to be found! (fortune telling is an AWEFUL TAG - brings me back to the 1800's). Also misleading on Twitch's part that someone can bring a fortune to them by a simple interaction, it enables the community…

  20. 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!
