Enforce your categories
Please enforce your categories for big streamers! Every week, I look for people streaming Pokemon Sword and Shield, and every week, I end up in streams that are streaming different pokemon games. The biggest perpetrator, SmallAnt, even has a command linking to a clip of why he does it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ST5v7-C3iDk . In the clip, he says "basically everyone streams pokemon in this category" so his discoverability is higher, but this hinders the discoverability of people actually playing that game! I report these things everytime I see them, but there is no enforcement. I can't find streamers I am looking for in a category, when the categories are filled with streamers broadcasting different games. Thanks.
Considering their Response with tags Being misused I would actually be shocked if they actually got their "**** in a Group" https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/933812-safety/suggestions/45048316-intentional-misuse-of-tags-ie-vtuber-tag-on-non-v Just being one case of it
agreed, it bloats the category, and smaller streamers are oushed further down the lsit streamers actually streaming the right game, and people who search the other categories miss out on content because they aren't there in the correct category.
This doesn't even make sense. People who want to watch Sword/Shield won't watch non- sword and shield streams. Exceptions may be large streamers. But your average Joe's isn't stealing your viewers. It's also partly twitches fault for making other catagories of Pokemon hard to discover unless you are really trying hard to look for it. They push the newest games hard, so streamers from other pokemon games have to do something to keep up especially if they are trying noncatagorical runs like radical red or Kaizo Emerald. This doesn't just effect pokemon but all games, just a small example.
As someone who streams Pokemon Sword and Shield category. I've seen so many people streaming in that category who are not playing that game (pokemon sword and shield). But, rather using it to boost their viewer rates by streaming in that category. I find it difficult to increase my viewership because of this soul reason. I wish for these people to be removed and placed into the proper category. So that smaller channels will have the chance to standout.
