Depending on how these channels perform, some could be merged into each other, such as Experimental and wierd, and Style and Beauty

Can anyone explain what Screenies is for? I don’t really see a common theme when I browse that category

I think Dom said they might scrap that channel but I have no idea what it is for😅 I guess it’s made for screen recordings or something

I think a couple could be merged, but it’d also be really nice to have comedy split up into multiple categories since it’s by far the most active one. Not sure what’d be the best split- maybe skits, memes, jokes, fails, LOLs? Would be very interested if anyone else has ideas for how comedy could be sub-categorized.

I would honestly go for a “nerd” category. I make a lot of videos based around nerd pop culture (comics, movies, books, games, etc.) The gaming one comes close, but sometimes it doesn’t quite fit the bill. A nerd one that is all encompassing of those things would be great for me.

Comedy 1 and Comedy 2?

Didn’t Vine split the Comedy category in the last year?

I AGREE! —- Comedy should be split or have a subcategory inside of each category when merged.

ADD DIY! DIY! DIY!

A vlog channel would really help or something more ‘slice of life’ like. People usually post relateable things experimental, comedy, or untagged so I think a vlog section would really help

I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but again, this is what hashtags should help accomplish. The community would effectively be creating their own channels.

I am always unsure about categories

That’s why i choose wried or experimental

I even make a :v:"dance":v: Video
But it isn’t a dance Video
The struggle begun… Is it comedy?
I don’t make regular comedy…
Should i stand in art? I don’t know
So i choose wried… As usual :sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile:

:wave: hi shilly channel would be nice.

But maybe more sports specific categories, fandom, furry, and a “how to” category :sunglasses::ok_hand:

I saw someone the other day suggest a “relatable” channel and just funnel all the “relatable” Bytes in there. I think there’s a kind of a traffic jam in comedy right now, and wouldn’t mind seeing more options to discern things.

In another thread, I suggested having categories without clear names or purposes and let the community decide what goes into it. Like “red” “blue” and “yellow.”

Another possible option is having “moods” as a category?
