Allows us to block channels
Why the hell are we not allowed to block channels that we dont want to see? I have streamers that are annoying and i could give two SH@ts about and yet they are constantly spamming my recommended channels side bar. We NEED an option to block any channel we want that we dont want to see. This should have been a feature to begin with, its kinda pathetic that they don't have something like this implemented already.
This would also allow us to block scam channels that pose as bigger streamers, etc. Like there used to be a CSGO Shroud scam channel that stole your Steam Login, etc. It would be nice to block that channel so it NEVER pops up on my feed again. (and similar stuff).
Same with all these half-nekkid streamers that pop up everywhere that I don't want to see. Would be nice to be able to block entire categories as well tbh. Like Hottub category or "I never want to see X game".
I can't be the only one, there are some streamers who i cant even look at. it will ruin my day they might have done something you dont agree with or might just be someone who u dislike but why cant we block them as in dont show me anything of this person or that they do. its hard for watchers to completely block out big streamers because they will get recommended somehow. they used to have a way when pressing the 3 buttons next to a recommended channel but that somehow got removed? but theres still a recommendations space in the settings for it. if something like this could be added that would be nice or just what we had before so i can block them from being recommended.
Right now I have to report them, to block them. So I have to just report and post in the comments "Not really a violation, but I want to block them from my feed".
That's dumb. It's a waste of my time, to do something that should require one click. And it's a waste of Twitch's time going through reports that are not necessary, because I am only reporting, so I can block them. So this is stupid. Let's change it.
Can we get a block streamer option or remove from suggested? There are some streamers who are absolute trash and an option to block them is needed.
This will allow the viewer to tailor their viewing options. Kinda like how music is done on pandora. Just because they play a game you like doesn't mean you want to view them.
there are browser extensions for that. for firefox and chrome
It's a good idea. But, I'm wondering if that would then create an expectation that channel owners then expect Twitch to track this data, and therefore ultimately provide that data. There might also be reason for Twitch to never provide this kind of data, and that would then disappoint channel owners.
Yes i want to be able to block channels too... i have a lot of channels where i had a bad experience but i have a bad memory so i don't want to support them because i forgot what they did... I got no clue why this is not an option yet... the streamers can ban us so why can't we ban them?

I completely agree. Either Twitch makes it so I can opt out of seeing my "Recommended Channels" full of Thots and morons who are irrelevant to the streams I actually watch, or I'll simply leave the platform.
If I log on and see that stupid waste of oxygen Amouranth or that loser Ninja in there again I'll probably delete my account. Try making money off of that Twitch...
