I just wanted to add some context for tags on this thread.
I myself am an avid vtuber fan and we super appreciate this feedback. It’s definitely something we take to heart and know the community wants.
As far as a tags go they are aimed at the stream and the content of the stream and not aimed towards the streamer.

Adding to this - the way the new channel layout handles the header graphic is abhorrent. The video display at the top of the channel page is redundant to the content almost directly below it and only serves to obscure the streamers' graphic at the top. The manner in which these video divs shift around and how the header graphic resizes in the background makes it impossible to design an image that allows us to brand ourselves without being covered up by unnecessary content boxes.
The amount of redundant content boxes is pretty ridiculous. The about tab has an "about me" box that contains the avatar and follower count mere pixels from the avatar and follower count displayed directly below the header. It makes no sense whatsoever for it to be displayed this way...
The accent strip to the right of the main body of content is also weird and off-putting. Since this must be a flat color, it often results in colors that are too bright relative to the body of the page and it forces creators to be intentional in designing their branding graphic at the top so that it doesn't clash or stand out oddly.
Overall, the new channel page has some abundantly bizarre design decisions that blatantly disregard the brand, identity, and content of the creators they are supposed to be serving. In the very, very least - revamp the header so that brand graphics aren't utterly pointless.
