  1. Some of my followed channels are not showing

    Some channels I follow are not showing in my followed list even after I click load more. Some channels I know I follow when I go to them I'm listed as not following them. Other than this I like the new lay out.

    • People, stop resisting to change

      The new UI is awesome, love the way you guys separated everything. One thing though, you guys should play with change management. With such a huge community, changes like that could cause a big impact.

        Thanks for the Feedback Klaus! We always try to rollout our features in a way that will generate value for the community and mitigate potential impact. This was a big change though! so thanks for reaching out.

      • Just give me one list like it had before on the right with everyone who I'm following. The new list looks bad, and doesn't work.

        • Prime Loot

          Prime Loot is completely hidden behind the UI when you expand and try to claim it. Everything else is incredibly awesome!

          • I enjoy the slick new look!

            I'm really enjoying the new look, it's very clean and professional looking. The main page before looked kind of clustered, with the different splash art for different channels sometimes leading to an over-stimulation effect. I actually find myself browsing around on the page instead of hopping straight to the followers tab. I don't always follow the streamers I like on Twitter, so it's nice to see it here.

            An idea that occurred to me, if it hasn't already been implemented and I missed it, would be allowing some form of hashtag tracking. If a channel is advertising on Twitter about…

              Thank you for the constructive feedback. We do have future plans to address the hashtag issue that you are referring to. Stay tuned as we continue to develop the feature… :-)

            • I have no idea why people are saying "this is for games not social media site"

              This has always been a community for gamers and streamers. Why not make it easier to see what those streamers are doing, and be able to easily update. I think it's great. No one took the games out of Twitch. It's a huge improvement.

                Thanks so much for your feedback! We agree that the Community is part of what makes Twitch so awesome. With Friends, Chat, Whispers, and Pulse, we hope to better connect you with other gamers and streamers!

              • Content

                Twitch streamers produce a ton of great content. Right now Pulse does a crappy job of showing the awesome content streamers are providing. Instead it is currently flooded with when streamers go online and updates on upcoming events. Other people currently are taking streamer’s content and posting on other websites for people to watch.

                My idea of what pulse should be is similar of how reddit is. I personally would love it to be a place I can go to watch all the top content of all streamers/followed streamers and a place to engage with certain communities.

                Pulse itself should…

                  Thanks for your feedback. We agree that Twitch streamers create a lot of really great content.
                  That’s why beginning today, on web and mobile, we’re expanding Pulse to show recommended content from new and followed streamers, tailored just for you. The recommendations, which currently include live streams, VODs, and clips, are based on follows, viewing history, and what’s popular on Twitch.

                  • 3/28/2017 I LOVE THE NEW LOOK!!! THIS IS GREAT! DO. NOT. CHANGE. THIS. THIS LOOK IS SO NICE, AND ORGANIZED!!! THE ONE BEFORE SUCKED

                    One suggestion. I miss the description next to the spotlight, featured broadcasters on the front page. you guys should put the description between the name and the different selections under the name of the streamer.

                      Thanks for the constructive feedback. We do have plans to bring back the description text in the near future. As you pointed out – that additional context is important for our viewers to understand what they are seeing… :-)

                    • nav bars cover the page/obscuring content

                      I don't know if it's browser compatibility but the left hand nav bar cuts off content from view even when minimized.

                        This is great stuff, good job twitch and I wonder what took you so long to get here!

                        One comment that I'd have would be to keep the updates that I see restricted to the streamers that I follow. I don't want to see people from chat or random top streamers.

                        • Advance Search Option

                          I like watching streams that have a less viewers watching, that way the streamer is a lot more interactive with the chat. There should be an advance search option that lets you pick a game and lets you set a viewer count and show a stream specifically in that way without having me to keep scrolling down to find a stream with less people in it. Another Suggestion of mine is that, I would like there to be a Random Roll button. This will allow you to join a random stream every time you click it. This I think would…

                            1) Don't listen to luddite neanderthals that complain about change without valid reasoning. Inertia currently appeases them, but two years from now, they will be the first to indict you for the stale lack of progress they fought so hard to keep. Luckily, they are easy to spot since they have such a loud and empty voice.

                            2) Focus on building a traditional threading system that employs the use of organizational hashtags. It has to be functional, attractive, but collapsible so it doesn't confuse and intimidate new users. Also, it has to be founded on machine learning.

                            3) Avoid feature…

                              I wish Pulse automatically showed new posts without having to refresh the entire page. Or at least have a refresh button just for the Pulse section.

                                  I feel like most people who watch twitch will have a widescreen monitor... Why is the pulse feed so narrow? there's so much useless space on the sides.

                                  You could pad things out and style some of the elements too. It looks so bare!
