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!
Please add this category!
Thanks for sharing this idea! Time for the BrickBuilding community to unite! Thanks for getting this going!
Thanks for spearheading this!
There are so many talented streamers in the "BrickBuilding" community and having them be able to use that as a category would be awesome.
Yes please! I am new to Twitch and love streaming my LEGO related content to other AFOLs and beyond.
This is a genius idea! I have grown so much with LEGO streams and live builds, we need a category to share with our followers
This is such a brilliant idea!
Brick building has so many awesome creators, and they are juggled between Just Chatting, Makers & Crafting, and sometimes Art. It would be awesome to have a category we can all unite under. It would also help people be able to find and explore all the streams related to lego & building.
Jump on this suggestion Twitch! Haha, it’s a really great one.
esto es necesario!!!!! vamos que se puede
This is a must have, the brickbuilding community has grown exponentially on Twitch over the past two years and will only grow stronger in the future. There are dedicated streamers and viewers in this category, we need discoverability.
This is long overdue and fully endorsed.
Let's Go!!!! We need this!!
I fully support this request!
Those of us who have already found our way into the LEGO community on Twitch know to look for LEGO streams in the Brickbuilding tag. But people on the outside just search for the word "LEGO" - and unless a streamer has included that in their title, potential viewers aren't going to find their streams. Plus, many users stream LEGO multiple times before even finding out about the Brickbuilding tag, meaning viewers that would have loved to have found them never really had the chance.
A dedicated category would allow us a place to really build our communities and find new streamers and new viewers alike.
100% support this! As many mentioned before categories evolved. And as this community continues to grow, having a more dedicated category to the BrickBuilding streamers would help. The tag was great when it was moderated. But it’s so watered down by streamers that aren’t LEGO builders.
It's a shame many of us go back and forth on which category we even belong in. Are we making/crafting? Just chatting? Brick Building heartily deserves its own category. Can't wait to be more easily found by my kindred spirits and brick buddies!
Just as Talk Shows and Podcasts was created outside of just chatting and how Art stands apart from Makers and Crafting, there's definitely a need and precedent for Brickbuilding to have a stand alone category. Strongly support this.
This is 100% needed. There is very much a rising love of LEGO, especially in adults recently and there needs to be an easier way for people to discover this content .
If Twitch had a LEGO category my wife would finally come home.
You know I'm all for it 👍
Twitch often champions diversity and the niche sides of the internet live streaming landscape. The more niece and diverse categories can get shows that inclusivity and makes sure audiences can be found quicker, easier and have more channels supported by its viewers!
