Supporting low count Twitch users.
I'd like to see on the front page, one slot out of the six featured, dedicated to players who have a low count of viewers, randomly chosen from 10 - 100 viewer bracket, giving the community members a chance, helping to encourage, promote and support other member's of community.
Average concurrent viewers for Partner is 75, I think anything above that isn't "low viewer count" as that's a decent amount of people in your chat seemingly chatting and interacting with you as a streamer. If it were 5-75, and cycles out every 10-30mins and hits low viewer categories vs saturated categories like IRL, or popular games it'd make it a lot better.
As it stands I hardly visit the frontpage because there's nothing there that interests me or streamers I already follow are being featured. I would like something new in rotation so I can get a glimpse of a different set of streamers and decide if I want to go to their channel or not.
Strange - I commented on this back in 2016. Mixer basically got given the same idea in 2018 and they initiated it almost straight away, with 110% community support. It's giving them a weekly chance to be front page featured and whilst some will never use that opportunity, many new streamers have been given the chance to shine and brightly have shown the way for others. Time to keep up Twitch.... your failing behind now.
my biggest problem with this would be, you could get some really bad/offensive and low quality streams, its much better that it is for partnered streamers, it gives you incentive to get partnered and helps partnered streamers continue to grow, they put in their hard work and were recognized as good enough quality to become a partner.
HOWEVER, they seem to only really show high view count people on the featured channel and the partnered streamers that have low view's have no chance at all to get on the featured list, you made them a partner... why exclude them? the streamers with low views that do get featured just seem to be favorites of a staff/admin

Would be great but never gonna happen.
They need to keep those spots for someone who will give them money and not just leech their expensive bandwidth.

It would be enough to make a form where you can apply for this feature

I like this idea, but how would Twitch make money off of this idea?
As a further to this idea, an option to view the list based on LOWEST view count (and maybe even hide streamers from the list)
