Built In Stream Cancellation Reason
Perhaps I've missed this feature, but I feel like it would be helpful to include an optional explanation box for a canceled stream. While I do have my social media/discord to communicate as well, it would be great to have a centralized location to communicate that. Not everyone needs to know every reason, but if you would like to, its helpful.
Perhaps it's redundant if you have a following on socials, but if someone doesn't check and goes straight to the stream, they may wonder if there's technical issues or a delay, as opposed to a cancellation, and may not check the schedule. Being able to display this information on the landing page if there's a stream scheduled but canceled would be a welcomed addition as well.
I just spent 30 minutes waiting on one of my favorite creators, and she never appeared. I checked her other social media, and even closed down the app then reopened it. No notice anywhere that she might not be online, or was running late, or?. It's a regularly scheduled stream.
She's not the only one I've had this happen. At least the other main streamer has other social media, and will say/explain that the stream is cancelled.
I understand life happens. I don't get to watch every stream that I'd like to enjoy. But if a stream's not going to happen, I have plenty of other things I can be doing.
This particular creator used to stream on Tuesdays with another creator for a show - and I had no idea what creator she was with. It wasn't her usual partner, and I never could catch or find their name.
Having the ability to change or make notes on the schedule would sure make things easier and less stressful for me - and maybe for at least someone else.
Right now it just moves on to showing the next day and time, if there hasn't been anything from the creator/streamer for thirty minutes. That works, but it would be nice to have that happen quicker, and/or have added information.
Right now if I want to take cancel a stream I inform my viewers on discord/twitter. Viewers that are looking for me on Twitch with on my usual time have no way to know if today's stream is not happening. There should be a system for me to post updates and show them as the very first thing on the page.
