  1. Twitch has added numerous tags for mental health and chronic health conditions, there needs to be an HIV tag added to this.

    Stigma around HIV is a huge issue that can only be fought through education and awareness around HIV. It would be hugely helpful to have a tag for creators who are HIV positive to communicate that fact and provide space for others who need support or information.

    I am making this rather than voting for the pre-existing user Voice because I very explicitly do not want or think we need a POZ or AIDS tag. In my opinion…

  4. When looking for people to raid, it's hard to tell who uses exclusive chats like Sub-only or Follower-only. I think this could easily be fixed by adding a little icon or label that marks ALL streams that are follower-only, sub-only, or open to everyone when browsing for streams.

  5. The Mortal Kombat categories featured on twitch are inaccurate & should be fixed. It is one of the most iconic & recognized franchises in the video game industry & deserves accurate extensions on the platform.
    The original Mortal Kombat, which released in Oct 1992 doesn't even have it's own category. It's absent. I'm assuming so the 2011 remake could replace its spot. While categories such as the ever popular Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe: Silver Shield Combo Pack (a copy of the base game boxed with a bonus blu ray of the original live action film) & Mortal Kombat Mythologies:…

  6. The Music & Performing Arts category is oversaturated with music radio channels. Scrolling through to find live musicians and DJs is too much of a chore. 'Sort by: Viewers (Low to High)' is almost completely useless because the bottom of the list is full of music radio streams with 0 viewers.

    At the very least, this is making the Music & Performing Arts category look very unclean. I also think this change is especially needed now that searching by tags through the main search bar is no longer a thing.

  7. People get confused as heck when you have two perceived language tags on i.e. English and German, but you're just trying to showcase that you're streaming in English but you are German.

    Maybe put nationality in brackets after the nationality tag?

  8. Myself and I know of a good handful of other people streaming want to be able to set a category for Gundam Model building or Gunpla for short. The best we can do is set just chatting and scale model as a tag. We feel for the Gundam community that Gunpla as a category or tag would greatly benefit us and twitch

  10. A lifetime subscription should be available for Affiliates to give to 1 bot account. This would prevent affiliates from having to pay for a Tier 3 sub for their own bot every month.

  11. Shiny hunting is a huge part of the Pokémon community here on Twitch and has been for many years. In the past it was easy enough to type 'shiny hunting' into the main search bar and a list of relevant streams would pop up. However, With the current Twitch algorithm and layout changes it has now become very difficult to find live streams dedicated to shiny hunting specifically. This is particularly true in older game/generation categories as Shiny hunting streams get lost amongst Nuzlocks and lets plays etc. The only medium to tell if a channel is streaming shiny hunting…

  12. Implement a new search system with predefined and/or user defined tags like #lol #csgo #kappa #girlgamer #familyfriendly #twitch etc. It would be nice for a channel to have a handful of tags to identify itself.

  13. Can we create a category for "Miniature Painters". Art is very broad, and as much as we do fit in we often get lost and overshadowed by other subjects. If Video games have specific sections for specific games wouldn't it be wonderful if Miniature Gamers/Miniature Painters would get their own?

  14. The demoscene is one of oldest and most respected subcultures in software development. Demoscene events (AKA Demoparties) showcase some of greatest works in real-time computer graphics.

    I mean, there's a Demoscene "team" leftover from days of Twitch yore. Frankly though I think there should be a category too. Demo showcases would utilize this, but it's useful to the entire pipeline. Just as you develop a game, you can make a demo production (not to be confused with game demos).

  15. I'm a casual streamer who streams without a microphone. I personally like to watch streams with no vocal commentary. It would be nice to be able to search for streams where people don't use a microphone.

    Maybe you can add a tag for "No Mic" so people can search for streamers who don't stream with a microphone easily, using the tag system.

  16. KeyForge (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KeyForge) is not a recognised game in Twitch. It's a physical card game, not a video game, so it can't be added through IGDB. But it's played a lot online too, specially since the pandemic, through thecrucible.online and tabletop simulator.

    We have daily streams, and some popular streamers such as:
    https://www.twitch.tv/tabletoproyale
    https://www.twitch.tv/critcamp
    https://www.twitch.tv/kfpl_jupiter
    https://www.twitch.tv/keyforgeonlineteamevents

    It would be awesome if we could find them all together, inside Twitch.

  17. Allow viewers to flag a stream's tag as misleading or incorrect, and remove it. For example, a lot of people use the 12 Hour Challenge tag to mean "I'm streaming for a long time today", when in fact the 12 Hour Challenge is a challenge I designed specifically for the purposes of learning a speedrun in 12 hours or less. It sucks when a tag designed for an event I created is used by your typical Valorant and League streamers to flood the results page with irrelevant content.

  18. Every year twitch celebrates diversity on the platform with AAPI heritage month, Hispanic heritage month, Black history month, woman's history month, pride month, etc.

    I as well as other Arab streamers were really looking forward to celebration of Arabs or Muslims this year because Arab American heritage month lined up almost perfectly with Ramadan this year!

    I was really hoping to be able to discover other Arab streamers on the platform in April or have at least one of Muslim's only two holidays (Ramadan or Eid) or Arab's heritage month to be recognized and celebrated on Twitch's front page.

    I…

  19. As every year Advent of Code (https://adventofcode.com/) is happening again.

    Since there is quite a couple of streamers streaming their attempts it would be amazing to have a tag for it since otherwise they might be easily lost in the Software- and Gamedevelopment category.

    Having this tag this would allow viewers to specifically find streamers on their attempts to see many different approaches to each day's problems.

  20. Categories as they are are a bother to search through. Looking for Pokémon games? Well, look through all these people that have "pokémon" in their names, then all over these streams that might not be for Pokémon!

    Categories nesting with Sub-Categories could change this altogether. Let's say we would want to look for Pokémon games. We'd type "Pokémon", head into the "Pokémon" category and look at all the streamers doing different games. If we want some more precision into the category, different sub-categories like "Mystery Dungeon" or "Main Titles" could work, so on and so forth until you reach the…
