  1. 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…

      • Follow Communities

        You can follow someone twitch, sample a streamer. What if your favorite communtie well could also follow. Then see all streamers streaming in communtie currently on page follow. That would be good for comunnity because viewers than more varied look streamers.

        • Let us Pin Communities to our sidebar

          If we want to find a community later that perhaps only gets big for one day I would recommend having the ability to pin it to our sidebar like a favourites

          • 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.

            • show streamer not currently live who have previously broadcasted in a community

              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

              • The Following Section should show offline streamers as well (Like the mobile app)

                When the Following tab is chosen there are sections labelled Live Channels, Live Hosts, and Live Games, but there isn't a section for Offline Channels. I find it very strange that to find the channels that I follow that are currently offline I either have to go to the Browse tab or search for them. Part of following a channel is to make it easier to find for future viewing .I often watch VODs (as I'm sure a lot of people do) and the oversight of this function is a major gripe of mine. The mobile app (on Android) shows…

                • Coverage and inactivity

                  Featuring a certain community on the frontpage would be a nice way to cover a lot of streamers and types of content.

                  Also, maybe automatically delete communities that are either fully inactive for a certain period of time, or communities just used by a singleperon, however the latter may be a little harsh. I believe that would help prevent it becoming a graveyard of communities past.

                  • Show the title of the channel while it is hosting another channel

                    There are streamers who like to change their channel's title to the date and time of the next online session so people can see when to come next, however the channels usually host which makes the title of the channel invisible

                    • I think there are too many

                      perhaps sort them out into smaller sections? like games, and music, and lifestyle and stuff like that

                                  Forum/Message board as a central communication archive for each community.

                                  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…

                                    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 and normal chatter in the chat currently, so broadcasters and chatters might treat community moderators as normal chatters and ignore any warning given by them.

                                    Community Moderator Chat Badge only shows up for the responding community moderators when the broadcaster chose the said community.

                                      Not sure what to call it but maybe a section which shows channels in which they currently have a substantial amount of viewers greater than what they usually get.

                                      Would allow for people to find exiting, out of the ordinary content from big and small streamers.
