Make Art/Creative its own directory
It’s been a while since our last update, and we appreciate your patience while we continue to test this feature. As we shift out of the experiment phase, I’m thrilled to share some exciting next steps. We’ll be rolling out the directories update to all creators and viewers in the coming days. In addition to this rollout, we are also actively building a Creative directory, which we expect to launch by the end of the year.
To give you an idea of what to expect, the Creative directory will reflect all of our artistic categories including Art, Beauty & Body Art, Food & Drink, Makers & Crafting, and Software & Game Development. That being said, we know that creativity can happen anywhere – if you believe a category is missing from this list, please let us know below.
Thank you for all your feedback and continued passion on this topic. We’re looking forward to seeing you, your communities, and your creativity in the new directory!
The beauty community is struggling in Just chatting. Separating all the creative channels into their own category will help every creative channel survive.
The Art community on Twitch is too big and diverse to be put in the IRL section, creative streamers deserve their own directory so that they're easier to find. A lot of Twitch users (broadcasters/viewers/lurkers etc.) are only interested in the creative section, which will get buried underneath very different types of broadcasts under the IRL section. Please consider doing what you were doing in 2015 and give us creative broadcasters a better chance of growing and expanding.
The content between art and other IRL streams is too different to be put in the same directory.
Creative really needs to come back separate of IRL and to be along side Music.
IRL is not an accurate categorization of art, you might as well put video games as a whole under IRL if you do that. It'd make just as much sense.
Why make things harder on artists for no reason?
there is a HUGE art community on twitch, so it really deserves recognition with a category of its own.
shoving it under the IRL category feels incredibly disingenuous on twitch's part - especially when music has its own category despite all of the DMCA nonsense going on. not to mention that esports should really be a sub-category of gaming...
there is plenty of room to uplift the artists which make up a big portion of the platform.
I liked finding artists through this manner and it would help me and artists alike
Twitch really needs to bring back Creative or Art Directories. Finding artists and makers and creators on Twitch is really not easy and that breaks my heart for all the amazing artists that are not being discovered because of how the site is organized.
100% agree, let's hope that this works
Artists are typically shoved under a rug, often. We need a place to be found, art is around us 24/7 and doing this would help hundreds in their art, shops, and more.
Best idea for twitch like really
Yes please we need this
I 100% agree
Twitch wouldn't be a lot of places without art. From emotes to digital content- from games themselves quite literally as an art form- it is an absolute must that we get our own category. For years we've been shafted unless there's something you want from us before you put us back in our box under the table. Please help us actually be seen!! We're just as important as gaming sections.
There are so many talented artists on Twitch in so many different ways, its a shame to see us being hidden again under IRL. Please show some care towards art/creative, there is so much variety and it's already hard enough to get discovered. Besides that, the art community is talented, amazing and super supportive towards eachother, after all these years it would be nice to get some recognition.
Art or creative, we've been shafted ever since all these divisions happened, it's either streaming in Just chatting where it's guaranteed to get a bunch of trolls or getting lost in thousands of IRL streams, or to stream in the art section that people mostly just lurk or don't even know that it exists...let people know we exist, after 5 years of streaming in this section i still get people saying that they didn't even knew you could stream art.
"Making it more inclusive" but Music has it's own category....
The creative/art communities are honestly some of the most kind, uplifting and amazing places to be. They're truly a bright spot on this platform.
This is a must! The Artist community on twitch is such a vibrant and wholesome scene!
Art should be featured up front instead of buried under IRL.
Tbh, the majority of art streams are just as ‘IRL’ as most game streams... so this categorization is a little illogical.
