Allow manual sorting of your Followed Channels
Simply allow full manual sorting of all your followed channel in the sidebar (on desktop, Chrome/Firefox etc.). Additionally give options to sort by subscriber/follower count (add new ideas here..).
Currently the channels are in what seems to be a completely random order (definitely not alphabetical or by sub/follow count). My most watched streamers which are also big by overall Twitch standards are at the very bottom by default and I need to 1) scroll down, 2) click "more" twice to get to them when they're not live.
Allow us to sort followed channels by the date that they were last active/most recently active...I have hit the limit of how many twitch channels I can follow. Now I have to go through try to find inactive ones. I've found channels that were not active for two years. There's no point in following a channel that hasn't been live for so long that person isn't coming back probably. But now I cannot follow new streamers because I am at the limit. This decreases how often I am going to use twitch because it is too much effort to go through ALL MY FOLLWED CHANNELS to sort out inactive ones.
It's not much but I just got the ability to pin up to 3 channels to the top of my following list.
We NEED the ability to reorder/group/possibly crate folders in the Followed Channels list.
Example, if we can reorder not only by default number of viewers. Also, let's say someone watches APEX and Just Chatting streamers the most. If we could create an APEX folder we can add all the channels in that "folder" of all the APEX streamers I follow.
I know a LOT of people that have expressed interested in a feature such as this and would be used. If at least, can we get a test.... thank you!! :)
The streamer with the most viewers is not always the one I want to watch, so custom order would be nice. Maybe you could like sort the top 10 or more or less if you want to and then the rest would sort by amount of viewers.
I want to have it so that i can categorize my followed channels to custom categories (e.g. a category that plays Hunt etc)
That way if i get fake followers, i can see that by seeing that they're not in a category and makes it easier to spot fakes.
I HIGHLY endorse this feature! I actually found it searching Google to see if anyone had found a way to sort. I would also like to be able to sort my followed channels, by LIVE with LEAST VIEWERS at the top. This is ESPECIALLY helpful when i'm trying to find a fellow streamer to raid!
PLEASE get this into production ASAP!!
Sorting the sidebar by followed age is the ideal solution for me. I am a longtime follower of many channels on twitch, some which are small and stream infrequently. They get buried on the list as it is beneath large channels, and it is inconvenient to search through the list for the channels I want to support most.
I would like to be able to sort the sidebar by my follow age in the channel.
Can you make folders for your followed channels?? I follow so many people for different reasons, it would be nice to make a "GTA" folder and put everyone I follow on the NoPixel server there, and another for "DJs" for all the DJs I follow for music..
Similar to how you can make folders on Discord.
I would love this so I can find streamers who straight up faded into the ether so I can follow channels that have any activity
Maybe you could add an option to sort by most views, least views, or watch time. You could put the channels you watch the most at the top of the list instead of the top streamers.
I agree with this. I would like grouping for followed channels to be able to group by teams
Sorting by "subscription length" would be a nice one too. So you know you have a long sub on the top channels etc
Give the users the power to sort the "Followed Channels" list on the left side of the page. Just a simple button with "High to Low" and "Low to High" (viewers), nothing complicated. Of course you can always highlight the top channels as you wish, but give us that tiny button in the UI that will make the experience easier for the users. By the way many extensions have this feature.
Sorry for my English, love from Argentina <3
Channels that I view more often should be at the top of my Followed Channels sidebar when they post new content. It makes no sense how they are organized, because it isn't alphabetical, and the streamer who's channel I watch every day is always hidden below the "Show More..." button, when videos from smaller streamers with maybe 5 views get put at the very top of the list. I understand you want to expose those small streamers more, but I can definitely say I don't feel like the same is being done to my channel, since I know my views aren't increasing after the stream ends. If I'm watching a channel every single day, I want to know when they have new VODs for me to watch. It shouldn't be necessary to go digging just to find someone who's videos are pulling over 25k viewers per stream. Aren't those people you would benefit from promoting?
i never have enough people online for sorting by viewer count to be a problem, unless it's during Minecraft Championship, even then i usually watch a yotube stream pov.
The sorting system would be nice for offline tho, instead of sorting channels by how many streams ive missed, cause when i want to actually watch a vod, i usually have to go to the bottom of the followed list(3 clicks of show more). its kinda annoying with the streamer with the most missed livestreams at the top, instead of the bottom.
Looks like twitch sort of implemented this as a test feature for a while (https://www.dexerto.com/entertainment/twitch-experimenting-with-new-way-to-customize-followed-channels-lists-1476766/). When this was activated on my account, I loved it! But now it has been disabled... Please enable this again Twitch!
But don't change the sorting without my consent, twitch. That is what they did with my account. My sorting is total chaos. And I have no option to change the sorting.
So if twitch implements this, please give us the option to choose what sorting we want.
wish i could rearrange them so badly.
