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!
While I get that "Art" as a category is really broad and all-including, I think that specializing that branch should definetly be a thing.
Almost every video game has it's own category, so why not have a lot of different ones for arty things like painting, drawing, arts and crafts or even LEGO/brickbuilding.
We need to unify the "just chatting", the "art" and every other category's brickbuilders into their own. That would really help out the community - streamers and viewers alike!
A LEGO or BrickBuilding Category is long overdue! Anyone hopping on Twitch to stream some LEGO building fun for the first time is usually left guessing whether to stream under Just Chatting, Makers & Crafting, or sometimes even one of the many LEGO Video Game categories.
With a LEGO or BrickBuilding Category (and as SetToBuild suggested, the latter searchable using the word LEGO), streamers of any kind will easily be able to find the right category for them... as well as help folks find other builders to pass the love onto with raids and hosts!
