Allow viewers to flag a stream's tag as misleading or incorrect, and remove it.
Allow viewers to flag a stream's tag as misleading or incorrect, and remove it. For example, a lot of people use the 12 Hour Challenge tag to mean "I'm streaming for a long time today", when in fact the 12 Hour Challenge is a challenge I designed specifically for the purposes of learning a speedrun in 12 hours or less. It sucks when a tag designed for an event I created is used by your typical Valorant and League streamers to flood the results page with irrelevant content.
It seems like this suggested feature could be abused by people wanting to torment people relying on tags to reach out to their own minority communities. What would stop homophobes (for instance) from coming in and flagging an LGBT streamer's LGBT+ flag as misleading or incorrect?
I have a similar frustration while trying to browse or use the "Game Development" and "Game Jam" tags. Very cluttered.
As a specific example, at this moment: 34 of the top 50 streams using the "Game Development" tag are regular broadcasts of people just playing regular games like anyone else would.
Only one third of these top 50 game dev streams are actually related to game dev in any way, be it 2D or 3D art, programming, music, modding, or even playing games made by viewers.
In this situation, individuals are merely taking advantage of the niche tags in order to get their relatively small streams on top of an unrelated list- at the expense of an audience who already knows what they want to see.
