    Hi all! We really appreciate all of the wonderful feedback and passion surrounding this topic. Reading through the comments, we wanted to clarify one point that may have caused confusion:

    The purpose of this experiment with new directories is intended to better highlight broad groupings of content by bringing them together in directories where they wouldn’t be in direct competition with each other, increasing their exposure. In this way, creative content stands to have better exposure by being separated from gaming, etc. We will know better once the experiment concludes and we’re able to review the data in full.

    That being said, through your feedback, we also recognize that the broad naming of the category as “IRL” doesn’t acknowledge that Creative and IRL content are distinct. We will be evaluating the results of the experiment to determine how we can continue to best support communities’ growth, while ensuring we are…

    This is ridiculous. Creative category actually came after gaming and you guys totally demolished that category. Twitch used to be so inclusive of all artists. Now it's totally like you don't want artists to be acknowledged at all. Everything now seems to be pick and choosy with this platform now. The unfairness and lack of inclusivity towards certain groups. Even the TOS has a lot of grey area that I tried asking support about and couldn't even get a direct response because they didn't know. Everything is a mess. I have been on this platform for almost 5.5 years and have seen everything change.

    As a fulltime streamer/partner I stream in Just Chatting just to be seen more and to show my expression to many more people and I am also a variety streamer so I like having a mixed communuty. But there are many artists who stream in the actual art/beauty categories (their main content) that have a hard time growing due to Twitch's lack in the discoverability towards all artists which is super unfair and just shows how little artists are appreciated on the platform no matter how much hard work they put in. Twitch used to be inclusive about art. I have been streaming for 5 years 4 months and when I first started on the platform, there was a category called "Creative" which I think you guys should bring back. You guys used to do contests and events too. It felt more welcoming. We were more appreciated back then, but now it feels like artists are just being smudged out of the picture. It's really sad to see how much time has passed but the platform is going back in reverse in my opinion. This needs to be fixed. Please add more easily accessed discoverability for artistic creators.

    Hey guys!

    There were some discussions that weren’t super applicable to feedback and I have gone ahead and removed them.

    We super appreciate the feedback and want to keep hearing your ideas. Please just keep it focused on bodypainting/body art community and feedback around that, over feedback on specific channels/users.

    If you have anyone who you are concerned about on Twitch or someone who you are worried about how they are acting on Twitch always feel empowered to report them so our team can further investigate the situation.

    I would love to see more defined rules. In reality though, body artists are the ONLY group with a break "limit". This rule is not extended to other categories/situational exceptions (Ex. Beach streams are not limited). There is a bit of unfairness/discrimination to that guideline, even more so not being properly defined. I understand if the content is TOTALLY unrelated like dancing or gaming etc. , but just talking or thanking our supporters should not land us a ban. Limiting breaks and communication with our community is counter mental health. I stream on Twitch to enjoy my time and escape the "real" world. Body paints can take 6-15 hours, so it would make sense for us to have a nice long break sometimes to get to know our community more! I am okay with other rules, but the "break" one is what confuses me. I personally feel targeted and deemed inappropriate just for casually showing my artistic expression WITHOUT performing anything sexually related.

    I would love for there to be a designated Bodyart manager, not just for the "Bodyart" category, but also for the tag "Body painting" for Just Chatting streamers. Many of us partners (and non partners) stream in "Just Chatting" because it is where we thrive and we get to really expand our communities by gaining followers that have found an interest (previously unknown) in this form of art! Iv'e had so many amazing people come through that never even knew bodyart existed or have never watched it before. I am trying to constantly spread positivity and awareness that bodyart is in no way inappropriate or a bad expression. We cover our selves up to the standards, we should not be defined as inappropriate, just like wearing a bikini top.

    Hope to see better. Thanks!
