[MERGED] Bring back colored /me chat messages + Update the /me command to color chat messages FOR MODS/BROADCASTER ROLES ONLY
Or at least give streamers the authority to enable or disable it. But the ENTIRE point was how it stood out with color. Plain black with italics just renders it useless.
Thank you for the patience with us on this. This has been one of the most popular ideas on UserVoice and we definitely heard your feedback.
Today we launched /announcement for mods and streamers. Announcements can be used in chat to highlight a message and are available in 4 different colors along with the channel accent color. Because this is only part of the ask of this idea we are setting this idea to partial release so the community can continue to leave feedback on this.
You can already blacklist /me in your Automod Denials
Adding an option to disable /me (or .me) in mod view/by a streamer would mean one less thing that the mods have to look for while modding in the many channels where it is not allowed.
Perhaps with this option enabled, the message where chatters try to use /me would simply stay as normal text, however being automatically deleted would work as well.
Moderators and broadcasters use /me to make their messages stand out to give information to the viewers, but viewers can also use /me to troll, to get attention...ect. I think it would be beneficial for the broadcasters to be able to disable /me for whatever userlevel they want.
Add a switch for turning off /me in your own channel, its long time problem, and its so annoying. Would be great, thanks
The new twitch chat is impossible to read and gives me a headache when trying.
