If the focus of your content is gameplay, gaming discussion, or sharing your Creative process, then you should set your channel to the appropriate game directory, Gaming Talk Shows directory, or Twitch Creative directory, respectively. Mixed content, idle broadcasts, broadcasting Social Eating content in other directories, or otherwise miscategorizing your channel is not permitted.
