Hide certain stream categories, simple, there are categories/subcategories(filters like games, language etc all the categories that are currently available) out there that i never watch and am not interested in, an option to hide those would make my browsing experience a lot better
Thanks in advance, keep up the good work
PS hide specific streamers would be nice too
I agree, removing from the search list the Slots (Gambling) and not advertising it will make it so that it's only limited to the streamer community.
On a mid-april stream, XQC did a poll to establish the age of the community and about 35% where 18 and less (around 15% underage) and majority (over 50%) under 22 yo. Considering his influence (sometime streaming to up to 1% of the actual total platform) is of major concerns knowing actual real stats on how gambling influence strarts, who's more vulnerable and how it impacts their life.
If Twitch support this content and even 1-2 kids gets their first dose of gambling addiction following a major Partner. It's bad for the image of Twitch.
Booze stream has tons of rules and regulation and more importantly, Twitch TOS are severe enough to have some control over how it's advertised. E.i: Getting drunk and even flirting with some level of self-harm results in ban!
Gambling has none of that structure and there is actual comparison to addiction similar to drugs and alcohol.
I can only agree to it. People with gambling addiction can not avoid the gambling streamer. XQC is playing gambling aswell. How can we avoid it?
yes please add atleast opinion that you can hide slot category streamers
The idea is simple: Allow users on the platform to disable (or block) entire categories. So streamers using your disabled category doesn't show up on the website anywhere (it's filtered out). This should include Browse, Front Page and Recommendations too.
Allow for a viewer searching for new streams to be able to remove whole categories of streams they have no interest in such as ASMR. If we have selections of streams let us be in more control over what types we want to watch and recommend similar ones in that category not random category streams that may be undesirable or that may be unappealing. Not all watchers like all kinds of streams as each viewer has the freedom to choose. Let us opt out if we want to. Give our right to selection back to us.
Not just Gambling but the hottub section, if you would like to have borderline softcore *********** on your site that is up to you as a company but with Twitch being viewed by many younger children it would be nice to have a parental guidance control that the entire section is hidden so children are not finding these inappropriate streams on the front page
With so much gambling streams showing up on twitch, I found myself addicted to not just watching, but gambling in it of itself. Please give an option for users to hide certain categories on twitch so people that don't want to see a certain type of content can hide it on the categories page.
Slots (gambling) category should be hidden from unregistered user and minors. Also users should be able to hide this category.
Almost every slots streamer is advertising gambling sites and providing affetiliate links to the sites. These kind of streams are extremely harmful for people that have gambling problems and minors. Legislation in many countries also prohibits the advertising of gambling to minors.
Currently Twict promotes this kind of streams to all users. If streaming slots is not forbidden there should be atleast ability to hide them.
I don’t think this already exists, but would be good to be able to hide a category from what’s recommended to you. For example I have IRL friends that I want to support but they play games I’m not interested in. What is recommended to me based on my viewing history is then skewed by this.
