"Removing recommendations you are not interested in"
This "idea" you have doesnt work. When we click three dots to remove someone from recommended channels it just says report *** chanell... I would like to remove my self those channels i dont want to see in recommended area. ty
Hang on guys... I actually found it! The 3 button thing is real, and has "not interested"... But it's only on this one page - maybe the help page should contain a link to this URL:
Edit: And get this... It only works if you leave it sorted by "recommended for you". Sort it by high to low or change to a category like IRL, and the 3 dots all go away... It's almost as if they don't actually want you to block the bikini streamers.
The help page on this topic (link at bottom of this comment) is extremely unclear, and like others are saying, appears to not actually work.
Worse, in trying to block Amouranth's filthy channel from showing up, I ended up loading her page while she was live, so now I need to go and buy a bottle of eye and brain disinfectant.
Exactly what jean3tte said.
Broken. Also add in the ability to block tags.
Would be much better if we could also have a whitelist and blacklist of allowed/block channels *and* users by user defined keywords.
Getting so pi**ed off still seeing channels and users I've blocked a million times before appearing in my recommended feed.
Just because several thousand people watch a particular channel/user, doesn't mean I do!
I wish the recommendation removal would actually work, because I keep getting recommended "Just Chatting" which I have opted out from more times than I can count. I'm never going to watch ***** streamers like Amouranth, so please let me actually filter out her channel.
I'm not interested in Jim Sterling. I'm not interested in the vast majority of LGBT tagged channels, because their communities are not for me and I am not a good fit for their community.
I understand that marginalized streamers use tags to get their audience, but I'm simply not interested in being their audience and similarly they wouldn't want me in their community. So let me PLEASE filter them out.
I don't speak Spanish, so I'm not going to watch a Spanish speaking streamer. Stop recommending them to me.
I can't even use browser extensions for this, because they're broken or don't work well with Twitch. I'm actively being suggested content I'll never be interested in, which is causing me to spend less time on Twitch.
It's not a win/win situation, Twitch.
I am on desktop, and there is no block recommendation option, despite the help section describing how there is and how to do it. There are certain streamers I will simply absolutely never follow or watch and I want them never to be recommended to me ever, for example specific streamers prone to playing certain horror games, or specific streamers prone to dress in NSFW ways. I'm allowed to watch twitch at work, but I want to prevent seeing certain kinds of content on it, which would normally be possible by having this feature available, but it simply isn't there despite the site telling me it is in all the help guides. Even when I go contact help staff about how it doesn't work, the drop-down menu still just takes me to the same completely-false tutorial on how to block a recommendation.
idk why this has so few votes.
Literally by doing this every1 can discover new channels instead of always having streamers with 30k+ viewers on ur recommended channels,
and it will help twitch massively.
i was going to give the same idea cose i cant see the 3 dots either
and when i go to a individual channel the 3 dots only have 'Report [Channel]'
P.S i search a little and found the 3 dots remove interest appear through
Browse (at the top left) -> Live Channels>
The ones u follow and are online will appear on top of the list and under them will appear all the online recommended channels (followed and recommended are not seperated so u gotta pay attention where ur followed channels end / recommended channels start, AND the 3 dots only appear if u have the channels sorted by 'Recommended For You', if u order by 'Viewers (High to low), low to high or 'Recently Started' the 3 dots arent there so u basicaly have to scroll through random channels to 'remove' the channels u know u dont want.
I am suffering from this bug or whatever as well.
I click the dots, it just says "report channel." Other channels allow me to select "not interested", but not all of them. It is bugged on Twitch.tv homepage.
There is no option on the Contact-Us page that allows me to submit a bug report, so I'm commenting in the uservoice feedback pages instead. So silly.
