Allow users to create taxonomies/categories to sort streamers they follow.
I would like to be able to sort the streamers I follow into different categories, perhaps based on a taxonomy system. For instance, I follow a lot of Rocket League streamers, I also follow a lot of Zelda streamers, and I follow a lot of musicians. I would like to be able to tag these streamers. So I may tag Rocket League streamers with: "Rocket League," "Games," "Funny," etc. And I may tag music streamers with "Original Music," "Covers," "Funny," etc. Then when I go to my follow page, I could easily sort and display streamers I am in the mood to look at.
In the example above, to take it further, if I clicked "Funny," I would see Rocket League and Music streamers who I've tagged as "Funny," and that's fine with me.
To take it even further, perhaps I could even choose to view other viewers' recommended tags (it could be like the Recommended section at the bottom of the follow page currently), to discover new "Rocket League" streamers or "Original Music" streamers, etc.
I also think that a folder creation system where we can insert streamers according to our pleasure to date would be really a very useful function. I would really love to have it.
Do this Twitch. I use a browser extension that does that and since I installed it I've been following A LOT more streamers cause I know I won't miss when my favorite ones are live, even if they have a low viewer count, cause they show up at the top of the list. It would be great to have that on mobile as well with an official implementation of this feature.
I would enjoy having the ability to create and manage my followed list into various categories. I certainly have a preference of what channels I like to watch regularly versus others that I watch occasionally or very rarely when there's almost no one else on. And it would be nice to be able to sort that as right now I actively avoid following people because I don't want to clutter my list and have a bunch of noise.
Hello Twitch staff or whoever,
Just a suggestion or an idea maybe you can explore. (not sure if it's already somewhere here but here's it).
As some viewers follow a whole lot of streamers, with different types of streamer (league of legends, world of warcraft, valorant, just chatting, etc)
Maybe there is a way to click and drag different viewer into different catergory that can be set by users?
eg. Creating 3 category of streamer that I follow, (LoL, WoW, Valorant) and drag the streamer into a category with a collapsible menu.
This way, when I come onto twitch and feel like watching a particular type of content, I can instantly click instead of scrolling through 50+ followed channel to see which is which.
As for a streamer, this can also help them categorize their "teams" or a list of people they can raid/host before they end their streams. This way streamers have a simple way to see who they can raid at the get-go from a list instead of having to check if they're currently online and streaming.
just a suggestion! :D
It be a great idea if you could stick your followed channels in a group like why you followed them you can make a group for what game they where playing for [EXAMPLE] have a group called NO pixel Rp and have all your favourite streamers in that drop down group .. hopefully that made sense just trying to improve twitch
Be able to group followed channels into certain groups/folders to easily organise that long list of channels and endless scrolling. Grouping to keep channels of a certain community together - I meet a lot of new people in different communities daily and by the time they go live I'm not always sure from which community I met who from. This would be a tremendous help especially when it comes to networking.
favorite or pin channels in a private list on the top would be nice, I follow a ton of channels but love to favorite, my cousin, or friends.
having an option to favorite or pin channels in a private list or to the top, would be amazing
I was thinking it'd be cool to be able to categorize channels you follow so they appear under sections on your following page. Could add a "+" button next to the follow button on a channel to add them to/create categories.
Then on the following page you could have for example a "Regulars" section for channels you visit all the time, then ones for "GTA RP", "Valorant", "just chatting" etc etc.
It'd be an easier way for someone to get straight to what content they want to watch out of the people they follow. And the user decides what categories they want to make and who goes in what category.
Sería lo ideal esto, así cada quien puede tener agrupados a que streamers desea ver sin la necesidad de que le muestre siempre los que más viewers tienen
Estáis tardando amiguis.
Es buena la propuesta, creo que quien mejor la ha desarrollado ha sido jcvaughan en su comentario, que esa agrupación sea como la que tiene Discord, lo ideal.
Seria genial poder agrupar por categorías, así como de menor a mayor para que los que menos viewers tienen no quedasen enterrados abajo del todo
Want this so much. Following hundreds of accounts, having groups would make it so much easier to find specific streams.
I was about to suggest this. Organization isn't a new idea but Twitch appears to be behind on this.
Have a feature to organize/create categorizes as we see fit. Also allow us to show our categorizes/lists public or private.
An auto unfollow would also be nice, such as if person doesn't stream for 3 months unfollow them. Of course the amount of days is set by the user.
Add folder options to your following list both on the separate page as well as the sidebar. Similar to folders to group your servers in Discord.
This would help users follow more channels and group them based on content/custom categories that they are looking to view when they are on Twitch. This also helps support smaller creators as if you are more integrated with a community you could have a folder specific to those creators that you chat with often and they wouldn't get lost in the sidebar to streams with a higher view count.
Ideally, users could come up with custom folder names, select the color of the folder as well as pick a emote that could be the "icon" for that folder.
I literally came here to write this exact idea and lo and behold it's the top one in the category. The ability to sort streams into our own defined folders would be amazing.
Yes please! I've been wanting this for so long. I follow so many channels, but can only watch one at a time so I jump between them through time. This means that at some point, I see a name and forget who they are or why I followed them.
It would be so useful if I could categorise them myself so that i know why I followed them in case they happen to be playing something else next time I see them.
Unfortunately, without this feature it actively RUINS and HURTS discovery because I find myself going on an "unfollow-spree" every now and then to clean out any channels I no longer remember who or why i followed them. Which also leads to me losing contact with old friends who may have changed their name or something, meaning I will almost NEVER find them again.
it would be great to be able to organize the channels we follow and put them into folders or self made catagories and sort them in the order we want when they are live.
Instead of organizing the followed channels by viewers only. Allow each stream to be apart of a folder group. Folder groups allow you to see the group you assign that person to, such as Twitch Partners, Twitch Affiliates, Twitch Streamers or custom entries such as "Streamers that always have 5,000+ viewers" or "Stream Team - Drip Squad" or "Stream Team - Moonlit Yakuza" or "Phantom Society Friends".
Allow a page where you can place that allows you to automatically drag and drop say a stream team into the folder or allow you to manually check a checkbox next to names for certain folders to be added with ease.
Perhaps when hovering over the name. Allow the browser to open a window after 3 seconds to show that person's profile page, viewers, followers, LIVE/not LIVE, stream team info, etc.
In addition to the folders, let there still be a viewer count next to the folder name. Which counts the total amount of viewers inside the folder. Folders should be expandable and collapsible on the side panel to allow ease of access.
Lastly and most importantly, I think there should be a category in the folder system where you can add and remove filter options also. This should include:
Channels inactive for 1 week, 1 month, 6 months, 1 year.
Game Category Lists
Total Stream time within last day, 2-6 days, last week, last month to give an analytic approach on how much uptime people have.
This could also reflect average view counts/sub counts and such that reflect on twitchtracker.com
A quality of life improvement such as this is well needed on a platform like this, but I suggest a smooth basic system to manage this and to not be so clunky would be ideal and user friendly.
