  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. There are a growing number of gamedev streams on Twitch, and while there's a tag within Science & Technology for "Unreal Engine", a good chunk of these streams use the just-as-popular Unity engine, and would benefit from having their own tag.
    I'd also suggest adding tags for other somewhat common engines like Godot and others I may not know about (mobile engines?), but Unity is definitely as popular as Unreal and deserves its own tag by now.

    Hey all!

    Just wanted to reach out and let everyone know that we now have an Unreal Engine tag now 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 on Twitch.

  7. A game "Black Mesa" from dev/publisher Crowbar Collective is missing from the game categories.

    Would be happy to get a right category to stream to.

  8. there are two Pokémon showdown categories , one being "Pokémon Showdown" and the other being "Pokémon Showdown!". There being 2 separate categories for the game is confusing and makes no sense.

  9. The number of study/co-working streamers has increased dramatically over the last few months and co-working is likely to become a very popular niche on twitch! Many people now work or study from home and the co-working community is a very welcoming and friendly place. Please add a tag so we can identify ourselves and make it easier for like-minded people to find us!
    Thank you

    Hey all!

    Excited to announce that we now have a coworking tag on Twitch!

    Thank you so much for your feedback on this! Please let us know if you have any other tags you would like to see on Twitch.

  10. 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.

  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. Currently, despite the rhythm game Etterna being listed in IGDB, it is not a Twitch category. This should be added as a category, as it is currently causing confusion with a completely different game, Eterna, which is a puzzle game about RNA folding that has its own category.

    Hey all!

    Super excited to announced that we now have he/him they/them and she/her as tags available on the site now! If there are other tags you would like to see added to Twitch please keep posting to this UserVoice to let us know!

  14. 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.

  15. I feel like allies using the LGBTQIA+ tag just because they dont hate minorities still disregards LGBTQIA+ people's experiences and difficulties of everyday life. I think there should be a separate tag for allies so people don't just use the LGBTQIA+ tag for "free clicks", and that theres a tag for safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ people that arent a part of the community itself.

  16. 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.

    Hey there!

    Happy to share that Twitch now has a Safe Space tag!

    Thank you so much for this feedback and please let us know if you have any other tags you would like to see on Twitch <3

  17. 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
    https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/SpellForce%203%3A%20Fallen%20God

  18. I really think country tags would improve discoverability a ton, f.e. I'm Argentinian and i want to support medium or small streamers but when you search under the "Spanish" tag it's hard to identify wich are Argentinians, Mexicans, Spanish, etc.

  19. Recently twitch has removed the "Minecraft" Category and made it "Minecraft: Java Edition" there are a lot of players out there who play Bedrock and while they have added "Multiplayer for Minecraft PE" it doesn't always fall into that category

    please add either "Minecraft: Bedrock Edition" or have a global "Minecraft" category.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    We actually addressed this last year by bringing back the main Minecraft category, but forgot to close this out.

  20. Simply, Like the already made request for a 'Trans' tag, as popularity and need rises include further tags such as 'Non-Binary', 'Questioning', etc. This would be an ongoing attempt to further the ease of looking for a specific streamer for what you need.
