  1. With the increase in available tags, it would be wonderful to be able to pick more than 5 tags.

    Could we get an increase in the amount of possible tags, so we don't have to struggle over which tags we want to go with? Like say, 10?

  2. Many people in the world i believe mostly at least bilingual, or even rarely some people speak Trilingual and Multilingual, so in the dashboard let us for streamers to choose what language are we broadcasting. For example "English" and "Chinese or "Korean" and "English" or even rarely maybe? "English" + "Korean" + "German"

    Hey there!

    Though we have not yet added support for multiple language tags, we have added more than 350 new options that we think may help out with this particular ask.

    For more information, you can take a look at our blog post at https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/05/26/celebrate-yourself-and-your-community-with-350-new-tags/. Thank you for your feedback and ideas!

    We will leave this topic open for now for further discussion around whether this meets the needs of the request.

  3. When switching category to a game that gives an epilepsy warning, could the auto-tag system also add in an "Epilepsy Warning" tag to be able to filter through.

  4. Allow streamers to set their identity tags & accessibility tags (captions etc) and forget about them without them resetting after the time period.

    These can then not count towards the 5 tag limit which can be used to describe the content of the stream. Identity rarely changes, so allow them to be toggleable by the streamer. Most people who will use these tags will want to be able to show off their entire identity as well as their other content tags so this would be a great way to do that! It also allows streamers to show off their accessibility…

  5. Already at launch we are seeing how the new 350+ identity tags can fracture communities. Streamers who used to be able to be found using the "LGBTQIA+" tag are opting to use the more specific tags within that spectrum making it harder to find them if you don't know which specific tag to look for.

    If a user applies a tag like "trans", "********", "gay", etc their stream should automatically have the "LGBTQIA+" tag applied to it. This change would allow streamers to represent their content through their identity while maintaining the strength of a larger community and increase discoverability…

  6. Having just had our previous campaign closed, stating that this is now solved by CUSTOM TAGS, this is absolutely not the case.

    Twitch has always had music tags such as: Trance, House, Techno, Dubstep and others which sit directly underneath the Main Music Category.

    Drum & Bass is equally as large a community on Twitch as any of those categories, and instead of enabling us to unify through a central music category, you state that Custom Tags is enough. It is not. It spreads our community out through all the general misspellings; eg. DNB, Drumandbass, Drumnbass, Jungle, Liquid, Neurofunk, Ragga,…

  7. Bring back the ability to use regular tags. The custom tags are nice, but there is currently no option to use the tags we had access to before unless entering manually. The requirements for these custom tags (ie, no spaces) precludes some tags like 'body positive' or 'mental health'. Having the ability to choose from the multitude of tags that were recently introduced, as well as define user tags, just makes sense if you want to truly promote individuality. Using ONLY custom tags means that some people will be using tags no one else is, and therefore their streams will…

  8. I find so many recommended channels in languages I do not speak nor understand. It would be literally better than sliced bread to be able to eliminate all recommendations by tags. No Russian. No French. No Spanish. I'm not going to watch these channels anyway, regardless of the game they're playing.

    Please eventually work in a way to eliminate recommendations by tags.

  9. If twitch can't be bothered to get the default tags for games correct, which is obviously going to happen with any organization of this size working at this speed, then at least allow me to disconnect tags that don't describe what I'm doing. IE when I'm playing X-Plane 11, a flight simulator, why am I getting "Stealth" "RTS" and "Strategy"? Let -me- manage my tags, because you're bad at it. I appreciate the suggestions I get, but if you've got default tags that suck, I should be able to remove them. This should always have been a capability we should…

  10. Allow users to tag their stream as having turned on Twitch integration for the game they are playing.

    Twitch integrations, either added by the developer or through mods, can be a fun way for viewers to interact with the streamer and the game that they are playing. At the moment there is no way for viewers to find streamers who have integrations turned on.

    Even if you search for a specific game which has the potential to integrate with Twitch, there is no guarantee that the streamer has the feature turned on.

    This tag would allow streamers to indicate that…

  11. The removal of the "blind playthrough" tag was made in an attempt to be more inclusive of those with vision based disabilities, however the move of taking tags away effectively hurts more streamers in the long run than it helps (myself included, I have a visual impairment and play new games all the time on my stream, so blind playthrough is quite literal). For reference, I could count 16 tags directed towards speedrunning (a small subset of content creators on twitch, though quite popular in its own right.) and not a single one directed towards gaming with a disability.

    Instead…

  12. Games with trigger warnings, especially ones that could be dangerous to a viewer like "photosensitivity warning" or "dark matter" warning should have those tags automatically added to any stream with the game to prevent medical issues for viewers stumbling into the stream.

  13. Please give us the option to have a space in formatting for custom tags, so they don't all appear as one word. As someone who is visually impaired, this is very difficult to read when multi word tags are not spaced out.

    ie.
    CustomTags vs "Custom Tags"

  14. Lately there have been too many streamers misrepresenting their content with incorrect tags, using them only because the tags are popular and bring them more attention. These are streamers who ALREADY hold 99% of the viewership on Twitch, and they don't need to be stealing it from communities where they don't belong. This is unacceptable and I believe there need to be penalties for such actions.

    Since Twitch refuses to suspend/ban their cash cows though, I propose an alternative solution. Implement a way to gatekeep them from using the tags. If they've been reported and investigated for tag misrepresentation and…

  15. Hey Twitch, how to create a tag that can include everyone and identities? Simple, treat it like Twitter treats hashtags. Customizable, searchable, clickable, and can trend. Two customizable tags to add per stream customizable each stream. With user utilization this can lead to specific areas of creative or terms that harassment trolls won't know offhand but growing communities that band together behind a tag, like groups, but more easy to lead to discovery or search.

  16. With the new tag system, streamers can have up to 10 tags and can write custom tags, while the old system only allowed for 5 tags picked from a list. This a huge improvement, however this change also brought a lot of downgrades that overall makes the system less useful for streamers and viewers.

    With the old system, a new streamer or viewer can type keywords and Twitch shows suggestions from the list of preset tags. For streamers, this helps them discover what they could do to make their stream stand out and know what viewers may search for. For…

  17. With the new tags being added, there is now a LONG list of tags to choose from. This is good.

    However, it looks very daunting. It would be helpful to group these under headings (IE 'LGBTQIA+' tags are grouped under 'LGBTQIA+' group, regional tags such as British, American, Welsh tags can go under a 'Regional' group, same with charities, activities etc)

    It just makes it easier to browse / find tags we're looking for and might be interested in.

  18. Custom tags are nice but it's really bad for discovery if I type lgbt in the search bar and find no tags unless the tag is exactly "lgbt", same with literally any other text string, like "they" could return "TheyThem" but also "SheThey", "Playthrough" could return "FirstPlaythrough", "ChallengePlaythrough", "CasualPlaythrough"

  19. It's no longer possible to search streams with "platformer", you can search the game categories and then look at all the streams within that category, but you can't look at all the streams of all the "platformer" categories. Same for any genre, this is very very bad for discovery and actually a severe step backwards, I would argue more backwards than custom tags bring us forwards

  20. Some streamers will always use a certain set of tags to describe their stream. Having to re-select those tags every single time we select a different game is tedious. Please allow us to "sticky" certain tags that will always be present no matter what game we are choosing to play.
