Make Art/Creative its own directory
We’re excited to announce that we’ve rolled out the new Creative directory today!
As we mentioned before, the Creative directory features creators in our artistic categories including Art, Beauty & Body Art, Food & Drink, Makers & Crafting, and Software & Game Development. This will make it easier for both viewers that want to discover creators in these categories and creators looking to find and connect with others who stream creative content.
We expect these directories to continue to grow over time, so please keep the ideas coming. And if you believe an existing category is missing from this list, please let us know.
Thank you for all your feedback and as always we look forward to more of it. We’re looking forward to seeing you, your communities, and your creativity in the new directory!
a creative section is needed. Artists deserve to have exposure driven to their channels!
Twitch Creative should be a separate directory.
It's amazing how it was treated as such back then (with proper fanfare), but slowly got integrated into IRL over the years for reasons unstated.
Bring it back.
it's rare to find art streamers that use webcams, if music gets its own category then art should too
Irl can be many things but since most art is digital i wouldnt even consider it irl, on top if the fact that ppl looking for art will think it doesnt exist because its not intuitive to burry it under irl
YES ART CREATIVE NEEDS TO BE IT'S OWN THING!
Come on Twitch, Do better! You're burying the creative/Art Creators.
People look for somewhat different things when they're looking for an art stream rather than just an irl chat stream...its weird to group the two I think
Literally the only thing I find watchable on twitch, might as well stick to youtube from now on </3
Art deserves its own category, you making it harder for people to find amazing artists and stunting a channels growth by doing this!
Should had already been a thing nani the f**k :C
How this does not have its own directory is just baffling to me. Hiding it in IRL makes no sense and 100% does not help with "discoverability"
Art/Creative deserves to be a parent category, not a child category in IRL.
The whole IRL thing comes off as clunky, and that one folder on your desktop that is titled ‘Misc.’
You know. The stuff you don’t care about.
By grouping creatives with IRL, you are really doing all artists/crafters a disservice by sweeping their streams under a rug. We deserve our own Art/Creative category. It is hard enough as it is to start out and grow a following was a non-gamer on this platform. The art community on Twitch is so supportive, lovely, and interactive to one another. Although we don't pull in the $/sponsorships esports & gaming do, we deserve a place to call our own.. please! We are a growing niche that bridge with all other categories with emote/panel design as others have mentioned.
discovered twitch through the creative category. most of my money has been spent on streamers in the creative category
The Creative segment of Twitch is so varied and amazing it makes no sense to hide artists behind "IRL" - like, on any level??? Put an Art or Creative category!
I agree with all my fellow artists. TWITCH!! Make Art/Creative its own directory!!
This needs to happen. Creatives keep getting the shaft on every platform. Make the change Twitch!
Make Art/Creative its own directory
I am friends with many affiliate streamers, fan of partnered streamers that all do art, and I myself doit from time time. Twitch what the heck is this. Artist and creatives are huge and a big community. Why make this hard twitch.
