rising star - smarter algorithm or catered content
Currently it seems as though the rising star section is new users with 0 followers. It would be nice if there was more behind this, like some basic criteria for example, something in the About Me section, a nondefault picture, maybe even smarter than this like a certain percentage of growth within a certain time, or streaming frequency. Also using it to highlight games with less viewers could be good.
I know this type of algorithm and potential machine learning can take a bit to perfect so in the mean time maybe some catered content goes in there. You have a big community team and a healthy community perhaps the community can nominate streamers as rising stars, or the community team can do it behind the scenes.
