    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…

    I think this response has come across as a bit tone deaf and not addressing the issue with a rather simple solution. Having a creative category is not a difficult fix.

    You don’t need an “experiment” to see that artists are not happy about this decision. A group which is not only users of twitch, but also create assets for other twitch users. Ignoring their input and continuing to make decisions based on “data” rather then users of your platform is ridiculous. The response is loud and clear. If music can have it’s own category art should as well, if not, it’s a clear disregard to these crucial users on your platform.

    So many platforms do not give artists and their work consideration when making changes. Especially when the art community helps make up the backbone of the community. Do not make twitch another one of those platforms. Burying artists in a broad Irl category will make it even more impossible to find these creators. If you must simplify you UI at least use a “creative” category.
