Twitch channels staying online and doing vod replays for drops goes against the entire idea of livestreaming and isn't why I'm on Twitch.
As of this very moment when you go to the New World game section on Twitch, the top 3 livestreams aren't even livestreams. They're vod streams. That isn't what I'm on Twitch for. If I wanted to watch vods of these people, I make a conscious effort to do so and go to their channel and click on a vod of theirs. When I'm browsing the live section it's because I want to see live content. It isn't only annoying and deceptive towards the customer, but it's also unfair towards the livestreamers who are actually live at that very moment.
I'd rather vod channels be outright prohibited, however even a simple filter function would be massively helpful.. even though realistically the fact that a channel says it's 'live' should be filter enough to prohibit these kind of streams since they're not actually live...
So my productive suggestion would be to add a tag 'Vod replay' as well as give us ways to filter out livestreams with specific tags. That way the vod replays can stay while also solving the problem people like me have with not wanting to see vod replays on our feed (both in the gaming section and in the following streams section) by letting us filter out these kind of livestreams specifically.
