2000 channels follows limit is too low
Hello, I follow a lot of people on Twitch, a lot of people have not started streaming yet, will probably do it soon or will not stream at all.
I find it impossible that the channel follow limit is 2000 follow.
Please increase the number to at least 10000 channel follows, so that I can follow more than 2000 channels & users.
Even on Youtube there is no channel following limit!
Please increase this, I have to delete users from my channel list all the time, which annoys me a lot.
I also find it very dubious for a streaming platform that there is such a limit at all.
At the moment I can't see which channel I'm following because it's no longer displayed in the browser since Twitch redesigned it.
2000 channels to follow are just too few, please fixt this problem.
Hello can you please make the following list higher for i can follow more channels and streamers on twitch
please fix this twitch, we the people want this
Please allow to be able to follow more channels then 2000. I find it low.
To make it not abuseable how about streamers can follow more people?
So they can make more friends and network/grow. you removed friends.
There got to be a doable way to allow for more following of people on twitch.
Id like to support more people but cant from 2000 limit. please consider this. I want to be able to follow all the streamers I enjoy watching/supporting etc.
couldn't agree more , minimum 10000 , would've been the way better option !
That's how you live for 8 years on twitch. You have a 2000 limit to add channels to favorites ! I want the Twitch platform to remove these restrictions !
Literally BEGGING them to change this! This is SO unfair! I like to follow my followers back to show support and I can’t do this anymore because of the limit. PLEASE GIVE US MORE FOLLOWING PRIVILEGES ASAP!!!!!
you must solve this problem pls
I've been a twitch viewer since the site started and I've run out of follows. I have to unfollow from people I've followed in the past in order to follow new people I find which is really unfair to OG users. I feel like I almost have to start a new account at this point in order to enjoy Twitch again because of this hardcap.
I've been on twitch since it started and I've run out of follows, I have to unfollow people that I followed in order to follow new people at this point, and it's totally unfair to older customers that want to follow new streamers they find.
I never knew there was a limit till today, and im highly upset and annoyed that a limit exists. it's frustrating and unfair, Twitch please allow us more wiggle room on the number of streamers we can follow!!!! this needs more upvotes and attention/complaints cuz its really rediculous.
Please make the follow limit unlimited. I have reached the limit, but I discover new streamers every day that I want to support.
Why does the limit exist? Doesn't Twitch benefit from people following as many channels as possible? There is a way you can go over the limit. Your subs don't count but will downgrade to a follow if you don't renew your subscription.
@mouse why is no twitch.tv support answer here in this thread? This Thread is rang 2, but 0 reaction from twitch.tv???
THANKS! 4 All Upvotes here!
erledigt, hab auf vote geklickt, hoffe das passt so
Yes tesnopesno, this is the reason you get an error when you try to follow a channel that is in follower only mode. You are maxed out on channels and it will prevent you from chatting in any new channel that has followers only chat enabled.
Why isn't Twitch staff addressing this?
is this the reason why follower only channel gives just error when I push follow? I've been here just over a year and follow mostly music streamers. how am I supposed to get into gaming and other stuff now?
the amount of people you could follow is too low, 2000 isn't enough
There should not be a limit on the amount of channels a user can follow, twitter, Instagram and YouTube don't impose that.
I recently ran into this limit. I was surprised it existed, though I was equally surprised that I had actually followed that many users. I think when vtubers became more of a thing I got a bit more aggressive with that.
I found a website that provided a sortable list of my follows, and I've been trying to figure out who to unfollow. Some have stopped streaming and a few have been banned, so that helps with the decision (though I can't unfollow the banned users, the profile page doesn't load). It's difficult to free up much space though. If a user hasn't been inactive for too long, I'd rather keep them in case they resume streaming.
I wonder if there's a technical reason for this. I've seen claims that YouTube has no limit, though I've also read that it has a limit but it increases based on account age and other factors. That's something Twitch could maybe consider, at the very least give older accounts some extra space. Those'll be more likely to hit the limit than the younger accounts.
I could see something like this being a strain on servers, maybe, but it was back in 2013 that they raised the limit from 100 (which was apparently a rushed change that was more limiting than intended) to 2000, with the promise of "room for even more growth in the future."
Well it's been almost a decade. Maybe it's time for some growth? Could roll it out incrementally. A few hundred more slots, or maybe even 1000, then wait a month or two and see if the system can handle it. Or, as mentioned above, try age-based limit increases. Could become a problem in the future, but worse-case scenario is the 2000 limit gets reinforced and users who are over it are unable to add more.
A bigger problem than follows might be notifications. Automatically turning them on after following might not be the best default, and maybe those should be capped instead of follows. That seems like it'd have a bigger impact on the service than passively tracking who we follow.
