"Coworking and Study" Category
Last year, you all implemented a "coworking" tag for WFH, study, and remote working streams.
All of us in the coworking community really appreciated the tag! It helped users and viewers find streamers to study alongside, especially in a time when everyone was working from home. Even now, a year and a half out from the tag introduction, many users are still working from home, looking for coworking streams to pass the time and find company in.
Unfortunately, the addition of custom tags—while innovative and helpful for many streamers generally—has presented a problem for the coworking community. It's no longer easy for coworking streamers to use their designated tag to aid discoverability.
There are, after all, SO MANY iterations of "coworking" that could be used: "coworking," "co working," "study," "WFH," "costudy," "working," "studying," working...." and the list goes on.
This lack of clarity has effectively nullified the benefits that the designated "coworking" tag gave us back in early 2021, muddying the waters and hampering discoverability for coworking streamers.
ALL THAT SAID, now that custom tags have been introduced and the discoverability environment has changed for us, it would be incredible to get a designated "Coworking and Studying" category for coworking streamers to live in. Not only would it help viewers find us, it would also help us discover other new coworking streamers much easier—especially when not many know how to use the tag system efficiently.
Thanks so much for considering!
The "Coworking and Study" category offers a versatile space where individuals can collaborate on projects while also providing a conducive environment for focused studying and productivity. It's a flexible solution for various work and study needs. Balancing a coworking environment with academic commitments can be quite a challenge. I've found that for sucsesfull "Coworking and Study" it's essential to have reliable resources for write my essay here like https://boomessays.com/ They offer valuable academic assistance, ensuring that I can manage my workload effectively and excel in my studies while collaborating in coworking spaces.
I'd like to point out the concept of "body doubling." This is basically when someone works on a task, or studies, alongside someone else who may be doing something completely different. Even though they're not technically collaborating, it's proven that this can be a vital technique for focusing and getting work done, even just knowing someone else is working beside you and wants you to do well. Twitch could really be helping many people's productivity and focus by implementing this category.
Yes please! "Just chatting" doesn't cut it, as it sometimes suggest streamers that are indeed just chatting (catching up with stuff, talking about random stuff, etc). Coworkers aren't technically "just chatting", they are working, and having that tag can be misleading at best (although it's not their fault).
Yes good idea me
Category like just chatting and the games etc but its study with me category
I plan to start streaming in the future, and one of the first things I did was read through the community guidelines. Listed at the very bottom, Twitch asks that we accurately label our content to the best of our ability, which is tricky for us in the coworking community since we do not have a category to belong to. Although we have tags, I know that having the designated category would help more effectively. I hope Twitch can do this for us!
@KaiLondo the CoWorker category refers to a game named CoWorker on Steam, it is an indie action game that does not involve any sort of co-working, studying or productivity. Converting the category into that would leave a gap for that game whenever someone plays it, therefore having a new category would make more sense in my opinion :)
Glad to hear that study and co-working have been of help to you among many others!
There is Literally a Category for a Game called COWORKER, that no one ever streams. Some streamers used it before we got the tag in 2021. Why not just convert this category to that.
Only Reason I have Turbo is for study/co-working streams.
Please make this happen, as Remote work and online Schooling is here to stay.
CoWorking is absolutely a category that we need on this platform. Lots of people turn to twitch and other live platforms to find bodydoubles to help them focus on their tasks. An official category here would be REALLY helpful for us to find each other and share resouces.
Could be a very useful category
Giving me a lot of support when i am working alone from home a few days.
These streams are incredibly important to me and make up the majority of my viewership, including looking into streaming this type of content myself. It is difficult to find other streamers in this category without a designated category tag, especially across different timezones/coverage.
Nós realmente precisamos dessa categoria para ter mais contato com a comunidade. We really need this category to be able to be closer of our community.
Very true and very needed!
We need this!
Omg YES PLEASE
+1 for CoWorking and Study category so I can spend more time working and studying rather than looking for the appropriate category 😂
Coworking as a category makes more sense and feels easier to sort than the massive wave of custom tags. Please consider adding this category!!
please add coworking as a category please
Please make this happen! Great category that deserves to be its own thing.
