Create a LEGO or BrickBuilding category
In the days of communities, BrickinNick and I pushed for Twitch to create a community for BrickBuilding. After some back and forth emails, we convinced Twitch that LEGO is a creative medium/form of expression and deserves to be recognized in the Creative category. Hooray!
Currently, tags have replaced communities. Tags created some discoverability but they are misused and often used by streamers playing unrelated games. A dedicated LEGO or BrickBuilding category would help users find more streamers building with LEGO bricks and similar construction kits.
LEGO is too broad of a hobby to lock into the makers and crafting category. From sets to people building their own creations, visiting conventions, designing their own parts, reviewing sets, and more!
If the title "BrickBuilding" is chosen as a more suitable name for the category, as it is already known for LEGO building on Twitch, we hope it would still be discovered when searching the term "LEGO" as well!
Thanks and happy building!
I 100% endorse this!
This a brilliant idea. When I started out I wasn't sure where we, as Lego streamers, fit into twitch. Was it Just Chatting, Art or Makers & Crafting. And yes we have a tag but a category to make finding like minded people and grow our communities would be amazing!
I would love to be able to find brick builders more easily! It's challenging to find similar content to some of my favorite streams, because there isn't a category for it. It would also help the community grow and help newer streams find their audiences - we're looking for them!
Please do this. While the TAG helps, a category would make it easier, and faster to find new LEGO streams. I’ve seen LEGO streams in Art, Makers and Crafting, and Just Chatting categories. So if it’s already spanning 3 categories then why not give it its own category?
This would not only help other AFOL (Adult Fan of Legos) fine other friends/creators but could help get more family friendly content on the platform
They need to do this now. Even though TWITCH has been around for a while, I believe it's going to become one of the biggest social media platforms taking a lot of viewers from YouTube.
YES YES YES
This not being a category has kept me from finding other Lego builders and made me hesitate to start streaming it as well.
Please make this a thing!
It would be great since browsing for lego is quite a bit hard in the arts and crafts category
do it please i need this in my life
this would be amazing
How is this not already a thing? This def needs to happen!
I'd like to see this get picked up. Having a dedicated category for LEGO would be wonderful for the community.
I wholeheartedly support this request.
This idea is desperately needed. Twitch really should pay attention to folks like the Brick Builders, the Creative Writers and so on.
Please do this. So many amazing streamers already exist in this category!!
YUPPPPP!! We need this!
You’ll do italics in chat that no one asked for. Give us a real category!
With more than 2 million Lego builders around the world, PLEASE create a LEGO or BrickBuilding Community Category in Twitch. Thank You to the community for supporting this effort.
