Allow Twitch users to customize Twitch front page
The front page of Twitch is overwhelmed with "recommended channels" and is great at face value but, what if a viewer could customize the front page of Twitch to there liking? To only see discovered broadcasts they customized with tools provided on the main page. For example, Viewers would click on a cogwheel per se and filter out broadcasts with a multiple choice of boxes that can be changed at will and stay like that until otherwise. If I only want to see Twitch affiliate streams with webcam that have less then 10 viewers and only playing FPS games a viewer could do so. The filters could be extended to even filter quality of video or maybe timezones. The filter ideas can be interesting if Broadcasters allow how old their Twitch account is to even sub count/follower or gender maybe. With such custom filters to find new broadcasters on the front page, this can help other streamers find new channels to host or raid. If this idea does come to fruition I hope only true analyzed data is used as filters.
I did end up submitting a request for timezone tags which would help with the filtering options you're talking about. It hasn't gotten any traction yet: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310210-discover/suggestions/43875051-timezone-tags
I want the whole twitch site to be changed back to the old themes. The new theme(s) suck d!ck... so unappealing to look at. Used to be very neat and organised. Felt like everything had its place and was there for a reason.
Also because I love a bit of nostalgia ;)
I would like to be able to just remove the whole thing. Haven't been interested in a single stream on the front page since I started using twitch.
I would love for this to be put in as all i'm getting is ***** girls coming up on my front page and the more I put "not interested" even more get put up.
If I wanted to watch **** I'll go to a **** site
at least allow me to "thumbs down" or "unprefer" a front page streamer so they don't pop up screaming when i go to your site.

The front page is design is hot garbage. It is cluttered now with clips from other streams, and suggests live streams that most of the time I wouldn't watch if you paid me. Why can't I say that I don't want to see a streamer? It all feels so forced, like the algorithm knows better than me. Constantly, the front is just streamers that I could careless if they were living, let alone streaming. Not to mention it keeps suggesting streams in a language I don't even speak. Ever since Amazon got on board that is has gone to shit real fast.
I want to have the front page with the channels I sub and follow to front and center not some garbage that I will never watch and only pisses me off. Stop forcing broadcasters onto me. If I wanted to watch a game I would search for it. Or allow me to ban games/broadcasters from ever being featured to me again.
There is way too much stuff going on.. I feel like there should be an option to pick what shows, or a option to disable it all (opt for old UI). It must be somewhat overwhelming for new comers as well. The autoplay feature isn't great either.
What you should do is make it customizable too the user. Like moving each section to whatever spot you want, and having the feed to the right or just closing the feed, and making the "Featured Broadcasters bigger. Basically like those UI website builders where you can move sections around and size them as you wish (or delete).
