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 second this! Could be realized by adding a star icon to the followed panel for each streamer (common method).
Add the ability to add specific streamers to a "favorites" list that will appear at the top of your followed channels. You would be able to have 5-10 "favorite" streamers and since they're all at the top of your followed channels list, you'll easily be able to see if they are live.
I completely agree. Just like youtube, at least the order should be most viewed *by me* or alphabet. It's super annoying to look for my favorite streamers every time on the list.
Make @Critternation3000 words as if it was mine. I think is a really good idea.
Have the choice to organize the streamers you follow either by name or game being played. Instead of just viewers.
There needs to be some way to pin favorites, or sort by different things such as most recent vod, most watched, even alphabetical would be better than just "most viewers." My favorite streams are the smaller ones. I hate having to scroll down, click view more, and then scroll down even MORE just to find the channels I watch EVERY DAY.
having more control over what is shown under the Followed Channels would be idea mainly becuase it will allow you to still show support for channels by keeping a follow on them even though you may not watch them as much as others instead of having to every now and then go and un-follow a load of people just to clean up that list.
I’d be happy with a subscribed channels list above the followed channels list.
Still want this, although I don't like the idea of "the time you spend watching each streamer".
I simply want to be able to move them to my own specific order.
There are a number of channels that get sent to the bottom, but I'm watching their vods because I'm in a different time zone.
would be great
I 4th this idea, having a giant list that has no rhyme or reason to it just isn't conducive to finding who I want to watch. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a music stream, sometimes I want to support a friend, sometimes I want to watch a zelda speedrunner. Being able to group these streamers together would be a massive boon as my following list continues to grow.
Would be great to let users customize there following page, by creating categories made by themselves. For example if I follow a lot of league of legends streamers, as user I want to create a category that groups up streamers that play more ARAM.
In world of warcraft I want to create a category on my following page for streamers that focus content on PVP. It would be easy for me to look up for what I wanna watch.
Other way would be using the title of the streamer to improve the following page, by the game they are playing or some tags they are using.
I follow several people, but sometimes i want to check only the streamers playing a certain game. It should be allowed to us the optioin to group our streamers by game in the left panel!
I was just seeing if anyone else had this idea. I would like the same thing where we can name the different groups rather than having them all bunched up. I would like to categorize to ones that we know personally versus the rest
The current followed channels list makes it nearly impossible to keep up with newer streamers I'm interested in. I'd really like some sort of favorite or grouping option.
Agree with OP. It would be great if you could organize your followed channel list into different folders that could be re-named into different categories i.e. music streamers, Hearthstone streamers, Tarkov streamers etc.
Came here to post this exact idea. As a fan of many smaller creators I feel like I cannot follow any larger channels I'd watch if my favorites are offline because they'll effectively hide them to the point I might as well not follow the small channels. Sure there's the notifications but those are far from reliable. Hopefully someone is working on this although seeing it's been here since 2017 is disheartening.
Implement the existing sorting options found in the default Browse directories into the Following directory, to make it easier for people who follow a lot of channels to sort by "Recently Started" and "Viewers Low to High".
Additionally, the existing Tags-filtering feature could be useful in the Following directory as well.
This still hasn't been fixed??? It's so annoying having to go right to the very very bottom of my following list to find the user I watch MOST OFTEN (yes, my favourite streamer is at the bottom of my list!) Please fix this!!
I’m really about to unfollow all the big streamers just so I can actually watch my friends’ smaller channels 😂
