Make smaller channels get recognized easier than the larger channels.
On the Homepage show smaller channels instead of bigger channels so virtually everyone can get followers easily.
Popular channels have large following that are emailed when they get online. I believe Twitch should recognize quality smaller channels to provide a better playground to encourage new creaters to STAY on Twitch and not go back to ... YT
Beam is doing this and it is working very well. Just sayin'.
I really like this idea...since I am a small channel xD

I agree with Jonathan. But we all know nothing against girl streamers my gal streams but to the point we need to split the guy from the girl streamers I know it sounds off but if you think about it it's eight times harder for guys to get viewers over girls idk why but there's several things we could do better on for example make a choice of what language stream you want to watch an more support for are military that stream like a special day were you place all military vet and active on the top of the list just for folks to show more respect cuz any vet and active soldiers appreciate when someone in a very few say thank you for your service that makes any troop the happiest man or woman that people are thankful for those who are the true heroes so us civilian live free an are abil to do these things as of stream
This is a feature that I think is long overdue. As more and more creators come into the Twitch space I think there should be a way for small streamers to get noticed. Say you go to the browse tab and it lists the games. Inside each game has a split tab where it shows "non-partners" first and then "partnered". Reason for non-partnered first is to give them the first shot of exposure as those partnered don't really need it since they have the following to begin with.
On the home page you can still have the top 5 streams, but maybe mix it up. 4 days out of the week its partnered channels or big event channels doing their thing, but the other 3 days are promoting small channels. Now I am not about "giving me easy followers" because I don't like that, it sounds lazy. However, helping the community as a whole (big or small) is what I am about. Sure you can do raids, social media outreach, and look for channels your size to network that is all critical things to do, but to make Twitch the best platform vs many others and to change the way things are done I think the Twitch Team really helping all channels grow will be great. I am still going to do the Twitch grind regardless, but I think these ideas will be helpful in many ways.
i love the idea
