Search Bar on TOP.
Please change the search bar to the top, it is simply horrible in terms of usability to have a search bar so small and even more at the bottom, this greatly limits the search for new content, games and new streamers simply not are discovered, the search system also needs a lot of work not only in usability, ux, but also the search system.

Agreed. Based on timing that I see this. They didn't take feedback seriously. Been opened since 2018. I wanted to give mixer a try and found the layout confusing at first. Not seeing a search bar at the top almost made me leave the site. Youtube and Twitch have a convenient bar that searches channels, titles and games.
ADD A SERCH BAR AT THE TOP[ OF YOUR WEBCIRTE SO I CAN FIND NINJA EAISER
I visited Mixer.... I saw a search bar.... I entered the name of the game I was looking for.
No results apart from usernames came up.
Mixers search is flawed. It FAILS at finding streamers playing specific games.
This is losing you all traffic. This is costing Mixer money.
This is basic stuff to fail at.
A platform that you cannot find games/streams on??
Mixer's search doesn't work very well. I searched for a game and it failed to show that a dozen people were streaming it. So if the search doesn't bring viewers to the streamers on the first search attempt, then what is the point of having a search bar?
Try it for yourself, search a less popular game... see of you can search it from Mixer's front page... you can't. This is a big, big traffic leak.
Mixer needs of a "Universal Search bar" or "Unified Search".
As an active user here on Mixer I always struggle to find something I am actually looking for, let's say I want to find someone who is doing "Speedruns" or "Playing with viewers". There's no option to search for a specific subject, tag or title. All these things 100% needed in a streaming platform, and I don't know why Mixer hasn't added this yet. This will help smaller people get recognized because you can find their streams easier, and more people would use mixer overall. So please Mixer staff, add a search bar that lets us search for title, games, tags, and channels. Only making us being able to search for a specific channel name is very frustrating.
The search bar that you have fixed to the top of the screen when searching games is horrendous. The margins are massive so it takes up 1/3 of my screen on my laptop, not only that but if someone is scrolling through a games list then they are "browsing", not "searching". Get that dumb bar out of my face when I'm browsing.
Your UI takes up so much of the visible space that it's hard to see the content, and that makes for a terrible user experience.
The home page's UI isn't very user friendly to be honest. I'd like to see something similar to twitch's home page with a search bar at the top that allows you to search with a ton if different categories like games, users, and even stream names. I strongly believe this will increase the traffic on the website and help keep reoccurring new users
universal site search bar at top of home page that can search names and keywords

Why would Mixer place the search bar in the middle? it's just weird to use and annoying.

I agree the search bar is in the middle of the website for some reason
People don't know to click top streams to get the search bar.
The app's search feature is also poor - some streamers don't appear despite searching for them
Why have they not thought from the start,
I have seen this problem from the first moment I arrived on mixer ! I can't believe they imagine that having to click on a section of the site to access the search bar was a good idea. It's not.
Sorry for english, I use google translation.
Add a search bar for content creators and games on the top of the front page (like twitch)
Having the language selector at the top seems unnecessary since for most people the language will be autodetected.
Consider replacing that with a dedicated search box.
It's just dumb to have a hidden search bar
The moment you scroll down on the main mixer.com page, a search bar should appear. This way you can prioritize the featured carousel on first viewing, but anyone curious about anything else should immediately have the opportunity to search for a game, or streamer.

It's not a bad Idea. I went to change my Game tag to what I use on a Every Day basses and I find out it's been taken and IDK by who and I went to go find out and I can't seam to find a search bar....
NEED A SEARCH BAR FOR STW ON MIXER . The fact I cant makes me not want to watch any br streamers
I would never have even found the search bar without coming to file feedback and seeing this post.
the main page of mixer should have a search bar on the top to make it easier to search for games and streamers
