Apart from being able to select streams by view count, high to low and vice versa, why not make a different category for smaller streamers in games to separate from bigger streamers, allowing the smaller streamers to watch among themselves and build up their audience without having to compete for spotlight from bigger viewer capture-ers.
This is because there are a lot of streamers that has not a defined content and they just stay in the Just Chatting category assorbing your possibile viewers.
Let's suppose there are 100 people on twitch and you are in the Music Category.
6 person are on your category and the other 94 are on Just Chatting (real ratio, not kidding.)
If you stream yourself live making music you wont be discovered and if you do, be happy for your 2 viewers.
Just chatting is over saturated. It should be limited if you want to keep your Affiliate/Partner status to 2 Hours per week.
If you don't have content just don't stream. Nobody forces you.
Anyway, if you like my idea vote it. I think it will help us (small streamers).
This is a good idea.
