Create "Animals & Farming" as a Category
The Twitch community would benefit if there was an “Animals & Farming” category. There are currently over 200 animal based streamers on the platform, spread out over many different categories, making it difficult to find them. Animal streams attract a specific type of viewer, usually looking for a slower paced stream, where they can relax and make long-term connections with other viewers. It would be much easier to find this type of content with a new “Animals & Farming '' category, helping the community grow and support each other.
Furthermore, animal based Twitch streamers provide content to many thousands of viewers, showing that the Internet wants and enjoys animal based live streams. This style of content has proven its value. With an “Animals & Farming” category, the animal streamers can attract even more Twitch viewers who may have otherwise not found a home.
Without this new category, animal streams will continue to spread out into many categories, sometimes to the point of annoying others. Here is an example: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310210-discover/suggestions/43673121-get-rid-of-animal-streams-in-the-science-technol. There isn’t currently a place for these streamers to move to. Creating the “Animals & Farming” category would resolve these unintended annoyances felt by Twitch users.
Excited to share we launched an Animals, Aquariums, and Zoos category! All of your Very Good fluffy, feathery, or fin-covered friends, all in one otterly adorable place. Thank you so much for this feedback and if there are other categories you think are missing from the site please let us know!
You can find out more information about the category and Animal Week on Twitch here: https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/11/01/animal-week-is-very-good-yes-it-is
Makes complete sense as I find it hard to find livestreams of animal shelters aswell as there being no real category that animals and farming
you know it makes sense, Twitch! give the floofs a proper home!
They have the right to have their own space.
Support that pls !
already voted :D
Make it happen right meow :)
Come on Twitch, let's do this!
I think that it would be a better choice for the animal and farming be in their own category it makes more sense to do that then have it in the way they are now please twitch do this
I love this! Please do this! I watch animal streams while studying and this would help me to be able to quickly find new ones to watch.
Please do this so we can find animal streams easier!!!
I had no idea animal streams were even on twitch until I found this community a few days ago. I enjoy these stream much more than most of the other streams that get recommended to me by twitch. I really want a category for them so they can be easily discovered. Thank you.
These are some of the most relaxing, beautiful, and chill places on Twitch, they should absolutely have their own category.
Our community really needs to be together in one category which should represent us for what we do.
Animals & Farming has to be our home so people will know where to find us.
Yes! I watch multiple farm and animal channels and a category designated specifically for this would make browsing so much easier!
Yes!! I follow 3 Twitch animal channels and have done a few streams of my own about animals <3
Watching and chatting about animals gives many people a way to emotionally and mentally relax. Even without the many studies showing this, it’s obvious just from reading through the chats of these channels.
Beyond the benefit to the viewers, this category would be easily marketable for advertisers looking for a purely wholesome community. There isn’t a better option for this on the entire platform than these animal streams.
Please give us a category to be at home in, and allow us to spread the good vibes further within the huge and still growing platform you’ve created!
I think this is a great idea
Yes please. Make it happen! <3 Yes please. Make it happen! <3
I would love a farming and animals category since I'm a beginner farmer. I would like to know more about how to take care of animals and crops and it would be easier for me to look at streamer that know more about this so i can start learning in a more detailed way
