Allow to mark followed streamers as favorite.
I have a large list of streamers that I am following.
Some of them stream irregularly/rarely.
Some of those are game devs which i am interested in watching.
But due to their low popularity they end up on the bottom of the list, and sometimes i miss the fact that they are online.
The suggestion is to allow to mark followed streamers as favorite, so they will always show up at the top of the list.
i heard that some users had this function in beta like 2/3 months ago. apparently they could pin 3 of their followed channels.
i never saw how it looked tho, i only saw ppl talking about it in a chat
edit 09/13/2022 : so they finally added to the website the choice between sorting streaming channels according to the recommendations algorithm, or by number of viewers decreasing. i'm personnally happy with that, since my favourite channels are now appearing on top
This idea is nearly 2 years old. I still want this soo **** much.
I think I now follow almost over 300 channels and you really no longer have an overview. It would be so great if you could favorite channels so you don't miss when they go online.
Please Twitch implement this!
The new functionality sadly doesn’t work. I can only pick 3 channels which is not even close to enough for me and once they go offline they disappear so they don’t ever stay pinned. Unfortunately it’s unusable in current format :(
I wish channels I modded for would automatically go to the top at the very least or I could sort. The ones with the most viewers are rarely the ones I want to go to by default.
That would be the best! 🥰
Pin my favorite streamers to the top of the list, then sort the rest by viewcount (like how it is now), in the following list. This should be in the browser and the apps.
I currently do not see a lot of smaller streamers I follow when they are online because the follower section prioritizes by current viewer count alone.
Having an option to favorite streamers so they appear at the top of my list when they are live would allow me to remain followed to large streams while letting me prioritize streamers I want to assist in channel growth.
Alternatively, prioritize the following list based on who I am actively subscribed to before follower count. This way I have a higher chance of knowing when the streamers I actively support are live.
Twitch should add a "favorite" button that would allow the main watched channel of each user to appear above the "followed channel"
For those who have larger follow lists and struggle to pick out streamers or manage notifications (e.g neurodivergent, ADHD, dyslexia, autism, blindness, etc...) it would be helpful to be able to pin or mark streams that they would prefer to watch frequently.
This would allow one to see at a glance if streams they want to prioritize are live. There is not enough separation between online and offline channels either.
For myself as an example; I follow channels to offer support but don't always want to watch them. I have a set of channels I ALWAYS go to but I struggle to keep track of time and schedules (notifications don't work). I check who is live when I open twitch, but scrolling through the channel list I often miss seeing them.
Being able to separate or categorize follow list would be a huge help in chunking out information for visual or processing difficulties.
not sure if this is the right category. im just thinking it would be nice to have a way to favorite specific channels that i follow so that they are at the top of my "LIVE NOW" list. I follow a ton of people for support and sometimes, am able to catch their streams every once in a while, but because i follow so many, when i get on to see who is on, i have to scroll through my list...which, okay...for me in particular, its not AS long as those who have been on twitch from the very beginning. i just...i know certain other programs that have a favorites option that pushes their favorites to the top of whoever, friend's, followers, what have list. idk. its just a suggestion. that i feel would be a good one. because i dont want to unfollow people just because my list is so much to have to scroll through to find one of my friends. i want to support everyone. idk. thanks for reading, i guess.
I would like to be able to prioritize a specific channels to be able to catch them easier when they're online and i've missed their live notification, in general i've tons of followed channel on my twitch account so the streamers with higher viewers always a head on the list, while the streamers with low viewers always in the bottom which makes it difficult for me to check / find them if they're on, i hope i'll be able to pin a specific channel to be always on top regardless how many viewers they have.
we need it
I love this idea. I like to pop into my favorite streams and when they recently went live they will be a few pages down in my follow list.
awesome idea came to post it myself upvoted have a good day
As of this moment you see a list of all the channels you follow on the left side. you see all the live channels first and then all the offline channels. the offline channels get sorted in how many streams/vods you have missed. so if you want to go to the streamer that you watch a lot you need to go all the way down the list and if you have followed quite a lot of streamers this is pretty difficult.
So what my idea is that you can add streamers to a favorite category for yourself so they will be on the top of the list when they are offline. with this you can find them easier and don't have to push the show more button multiple times to get to you're favorite streamers
I support this idea too!
hey i was wondering if there is any twitch staff floating around maybe when you do another site update would you be able to add a favorite streamer section so that we can have a place older for the streamers we watch the most instead of going through a list of like a 200 more streamers (: this would also work for mobile as well we can have a option on the streamers page that we like to add streamer to favorites please
I think it'd be nice if you could increase the priority of a streamer in your Followers list if they were playing a certain game. Maybe an array of games that users can edit so their stream is glowing if they're playing a priority game/category.
Gostaria que na aba a esquerda ''canais seguidos'' pudessem colocar um modo de selecionar os streamers favoritos para ficarem em primeiro, as veses perdemos streams por os que gostamos estarem la em baixo ou acabamos esquecendo por não estarmos podendo saber que eles estão on.
It would be amazing to have a “favorites” section in our followed lists where we can specifically add channels that we love to organize better.
aight so boom, yeah, check this out... followed channels yeah... make it like so i can pin them, yeah, imagine that, i go on the channel, and theres this pin button, i press it, and it pins the channel at the top of my followed channels, yeah, imagine that. and then you add a pinned channels tab at the top of followed channels list, yeah. and thats it yo, boom, yeah. ez clap. and its way better than the "sorting by viewing behaviour" stuff, way better. vot pls
