create categories for ur own following channels
wanna group the following channels with my own browsing preference (e.g. by games, by teams etc), since it's hard to locate/browse them when I am following 100+ channels...
When you start to follow more channels it becomes a messy experience. You forget the channel name so you have to look through the whole channels following list which is not fun to do that's for sure or when you look through who is on live it's also not fun to keep scrolling through everything to find your favourites or what you feel like watching at the time.
Why can't there be like an add stars l/ favourites feature to channels we enjoy the most at present so that those channels are always at the top of our lists and at the top of the Following - Live section as well. This at minimum would be amazinggggg! Obviously, we should be able to add and remove stars as our interest changes. If you want to be fancy this is something you could report back to streamers - how many people have starred their channel as favourites etc.
Then secondly if it could automatically break down into categories at least in the Following - Channels section or that we can create our own folders. So we can tag and put some channels in Music, some IRL, some in Gaming and so forth. That way if we want to watch "X"or a particular category we can easily sort through who is live at the time or find the channel we are after when offline for vods.
It kind of makes you unfollow channels just to keep your Following - Live section clean of what no longer interests you right now and that's drastic because maybe you would watch again later if you could sort it better.
A categorization feature to organize the follow list would be incredible. You'd be able to make folders for channels you visit frequently and another folder for channels you visit from time to time.
I love to support as many people as possible, but having to hit "show more" several times gets very frustrating. This leads to a potential purge of the list which is unideal.
I would like to be able to mark channels as favorites and see them at the top of the Live section. This is why I am very selective of who I follow. I do not want to follow 100+ channels, when I am only actively watching 5-10. This is bad for streamers, because it lowers their potential follower counts.
Your suggestion is more advanced, as you could create a Favorites category, but also different ones.
I was looking for this suggestion! I follow so many streamers now it's easy to miss someone I'd have loved to watch only to find out they were streaming later through hearing about it from a friend! Really need a category for streamers who usually play x games, my teams and streams I regularly watch. So then I can also easily go outside of those categories and find someone I haven't watched in a while :)
This feature can be special for "twitch prime gaming" or at least 1 subscription on any channel.
So let's say I have 20 channels I follow. I would like to be able to create a folder and let's say I call it Art. I want to be able to place all the art channels I follow into that folder. Then I create gaming (or specififc game like valorant) folder and I want to be able to place gaming channels into that folder. the sidebar is jarring to scroll through when you follow many many channels and a lot of streamers are streaming at the same time. I want to be able to go through my followed channels through categories. So i think folder creation like on discord would be amazing to have.
I am one of many people that follow well over a hundred streamers, and there are few that I like more than others. Rather than facing the small inconvenience of scrolling down to see a streamer that I want to watch, we can potentially implement a "favourite" feature that will bring that broadcaster on the top of our following page despite viewership !
YES!!! Please add this! It could make it so much easier to organize all the streamers I follow. I was going to submit this suggestion myself but it's already here.
I also agree. Us being able to organized and condense our follow list into user creatable categories, would help so much in keeping my follow list manageable and easier to use!
I think this idea has a lot of potential and would really improve my unique platform experience. I am not sure how utilized it would be but I see it being used similarly to how Discord implemented their folders.
Yes please we sooo need this
More customization options for what channels appear on your "followed channels" list. A single list of followed channels by viewer count doesn't necessarily correspond to a viewer's preference. I would argue most accounts on Twitch follow 10+ accounts, so having the ability to categorize your followed channels (through labeled folders, sort by personal preference, sort by gaming category, etc.) would allow viewers to have a better experience. The ability to "hide" followed channels would also be a feature worth pursuing, as there are many channels that get followed simply as support of the channel but without intent of viewing them on a consistent basis.
All of us want to follow and support a lot of streamers, but the single list of all followed channels sorted in order of current viewers simply doesn't work. It should be possible either to create folders of channels, or apply any number hashtags (or similar) to each channel at any time; limiting it to on initial follow would be awkward for users without keyboards.
Hi Twitch instead of sorting the followed channels by viewcount or who you watch the most, give people the option on how they want to sort their follow list whether it be watch activity, viewer count high/low or low/high. It'll give each person freedom on how they use this platform.
I would really like to be able to use folders in my list of streamers, to categorize with the game are or what streamers are a priority.
Sorry my English is trash
I have and idea (optional) ( hope this is the right place to post) Its like a folder system for the channel you folllow ( and subscribe ) so they dont get all mixed up ! For example you follow 15 streamers ( no matter how much viewers they have ) that you watch everytime they are on. 20 you watch sometimes ! 10 are only stream League of Legends etc. So you sort them into folders( your own categories ) for better management and own navigation !
I have edited the Reddit post to sound more professional. I wish the uservoice had the option to edit the proposals.
Ex. people that play gta role play you can put in a group and people that play certain games you can put them in a category.
Have the choice to organize the streamers you follow either by name or game being played. Instead of just viewers.
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.
