  1. Contact Twitch Community Leaders

    I would like to contact the owner/leader of a community. Is there a way to do this?

      • Have badges for valuable community members (within the stream, like the sub badge)

        Some people in our stream community are great to have; always helpful, respectful or just good IRL friends. Those people deserve some more recognition without being promoted to moderator instantly. Some people donate 100's if not 1000's of dollars, great generous people, but not necessarilly great moderators. To prevent a wall of mods talking in chat, which may seem intimidating to some people, why not have a seperate role/badge for people that are great to have in chat, without modding them. This way great community members get the recognition they deserve without the responsibility and appearance of a moderator.

        • Community Email Notifications

          to notify when community members (of a community you are apart of) go live! Add a feature that notifies all users in a community when its members go live as this makes it easier for everyone, Rather than going out of your way to go to a given community page you are apart of and will help offer more support and connection among communities!

          • Promoted Channel in Community

            Much like Twitch has a "Front-Page Promoted Channel" I believe that communities should also have this feature as to where Leaders/Moderators of the community should have the choice to promote a channel that is streaming using that Community Tag. This could also help promote smaller channels and help them gain popularity in certain communities.

            • Older games and indie games should be grouped together, providing a larger audience & chance to be seen!

              Older games and indie games are almost unplayable if a streamer wants to continue to grow. The likelihood of gaining new viewers or a decent audience is severely decreased due to how these games are categorized on Twitch. However, it should be a simple fix. Implement a system similar to browsing the CS:GO map sections or the various subcategories in Creative. Create an "Indie Games" option for broadcasters to list as their game. Within that, you can include subcategories of the different games. For older games (such as the Mass Effect series), make a game listing that encompasses the whole…

              • Featured Communities

                Featured Communities - I'm wondering how often are they re-listed? I can see they are pretty well categorized already as "Painting, Retro, Tabletops, Competitive, etc., but there is still a few strange communities that doesn't make sense to be Featured, such "a single game title" or "a modded #gametitle". Those you can already found under a specific game title listing.. Plenty of categorized communities gets missed out for noting. For example "Talk shows" "Arcades" "Handhelds" etc.

                  Hello,

                  it would be great to add a Video Upload function for Mobile Device ( Android / iOS ) so Streamer can also Post Video Messages to their communitys for Updates or Messages :)

                  • Merge Duplicate Communities

                    There are many communities out there that are duplicates of one another. For example, I was streaming a game in which I was attempting to acquire all of the PS3 Trophies for it, so I figured it'd be best to choose an achievement-hunting community. However, there are several communities dedicated to just that, and they are almost identical. I feel as though there should be some moderation done in order to merge these communities together into one, as having any more than one of the exact same type of community will do nothing but divide potential audiences.

                        • Add popular, games, ect. groups back on the left panel.

                          It seems you added more *clicks* in order to find sorted channels, which from a design aspect, more click = more frustration.

                          • Ability to sort streams by viewers

                            Currently the only view we have on twitch to find streams is a top-down approach. Some of us frankly don't always want to go into a 10,000 viewer chat and be lost in a sea of text, spam, memes, or even be blocked by sub/follower only shenanigans. Sometimes we want to go down. down to the 100's, the 10's even single digit streamers to just go see who's new, what's up, if a connection can be made. Unfortunately in some games or categories, this involves a few minutes of scrolling down, and down, and farther down still. Why not have…

                              • too much emphasis on popular games/streamers. No wonder people use viewbots.

                                It is too easy for new streamers to get buried at the bottom of a new game that everyone is playing. Discover is not enough, there should be more search options, and more ways to narrow down a search for a streamer.
                                Maybe let viewers creat tags for streamers like in Little Big Planet, or at least put new sections on the BROWSE section.

                                  Currently, it is impossible to have community moderators to moderate or giving warning to any broadcaster or chatter who offended any rule set by the community in the chat.

                                  It's impossible to differentiate between community moderators in the chat currently, so broadcasters and chatters might treat community moderators as normal chatters and ignore any warning given by them.

                                    There are community like Programming with low number of broadcaster and it would be nice if i can look at people who has previously broadcasted in this community. This way i can follow them or watch a vod.

                                    This could be a new way to help discover new broadcaster. The same logic could be applied to games with few broadcasters

                                      Our community is probably different from most other gaming communities because it is arcade-based with multiple strong communities at each scene (Killer Queen). We currently don't have a centralized location for archived discussions on game metas, strategies, and other topics. Each local community is also run with little centralization.

                                      I'm hoping the communities feature will help all of the local leagues centralize on Twitch rather than being disjointed across FB, Reddit, Slack, Youtube, Twitter, etc. Having an organized/hierarchical structure that community Admins have the ability to structure and direct would…
