Fix the visibility of Twitch extensions
You get free tools to differentiate your platform. Passionate developers try their best to make amazing products, how hard is it so difficult to make their products visible for streamers?
- a monthly highlight message on twitch twitter (put the spotlight on a great extension)
- improve the extension dashboard by removing the top categories based on their function. This should NOT be a standard to get the top spot.
- let developers upload videos/trailers on the extension page.
- make a simple checkbox, that allows developers to send updates (email, chat notification) to streamers that opt-in for updates. (how do developers communicate to their 2000 users that the extension received a new function??)
- Run another dev contest

Hi Twitch. Another year has passed, not a single change was made to the extension store. The store has been roughly the same since it came out.
Only a few extensions are highlighted multiple times, while others never see a top spot. This has caused polarisation and unfair competition
The difference for a small creator/company is so huge. I'm talking about 500% more page views.
There are so many best practices (every other app store), that I don't understand why this problem is a long-term consideration.
Twitch, you need to start valuing creators/developers that try their best to differentiate the platform experience.
